Titoni Seascoper 600 Hands-On Review

Titoni Seascoper 600 Titoni is quite an intriguing watch brand. I have talked about Titoni a lot in the past; They are still an independently owned Swiss Watch brand, and they have been producing watches since 1919 (Under the name Felco). While a good amount of their lineup doesn’t excite me, the Seascoper line is one I have always been fond of. The latest incarnation, the Titoni Seascoper 6...

Zodiac Topper Edition Sea Wolf GMT Hands-On Review

Zodiac Topper Edition Sea Wolf GMT Sea Wolf or Super Sea Wolf? Well, this limited edition, is a Topper Exclusive, with only 182 pieces being made. The official name being the Zodiac Sea Wolf GMT ‘Crystal’ Topper Edition. What you have is a color variant of the popular Zodiac Super Sea Wolf GMT, formerly the Aerospace GMT. This watch comes in a lot of colorways, but this Pepsi GMT ...

Duzu Coral Bay Hands-On Review

Duzu Coral Bay Tired of the small watch trend? Looking for something that is a little more rugged and chunky? Well, Duzu Watches is going on Kickstarter soon with the Duzu Coral Bay, or the DW-D2 as it’s printed on the dial. I have had this watch in hand for a good month or so, and I have been quite impressed with it. The Coral Bay will only be available with a black dial but don’t wor...

RZE Valour Chronograph Hands-On Review

RZE Valour Chronograph RZE Watches has really hit the ground running. Their first watch, the Resolute was very well received, but the Endeavour that I reviewed really took off, with all the preorders selling out before expected delivery. Now, their third watch, the RZE Valour Chronograph is about to hit the scene. Unlike their first two offerings, based on the same case design, the Valour is more ...

Boldr Venture Field Medic Hands-On Review

Boldr Venture Field Medic Boldr makes quite the variety of watches, and even makes many different variants of the Venture. This Boldr Venture Field Medic is one of their Meca-Quartz options, and as such, has a pretty low price tag. The one you see in this review is the camo dial (you can see it right?), and starts at $299. Other dial colors are available though, so if camo is not your deal, make s...

Hanhart Pioneer Preventor9 Hands-On Review

Hanhart Pioneer Preventor9 I definitely would not call the Hanhart Pioneer Preventor9 the black sheep of the Hanhart lineup, but it surely does not get the same love as say the Pioneer One, the Monocontrol, the 417ES etc. Why is that? I am not sure. Maybe because of marketing, maybe because it lacks the rotating bezle and iconic red marker, but I am here to change that. Well, not really, as this i...

William Wood Valiant Hands-On Review

William Wood Valiant The William Wood Valiant is the third model from the London-based (designed but not manufactured) brand. The Valiant collection is available in numerous different color combos, the one shown here is the Rose Gold, but below you will see pics of the other stainless steel offerings. Bronze cases are also available, but I chose the Rose because it was a little bit different and s...

VERO Crown Point Hands-On Review

Vero Crown Point New on the scene is the Vero Crown Point, part of the Open Water series, from the Portland-based microbrand. There are two models in the series currently, the Crown Point shown here and the North Coast, which has a grey dial and bezel combination. I chose to review the dark blue dial with DLC bezel and crown because I love the contrast, especially with the bright white hands and i...

Ergon Adventum Hands-On Review

Ergon Adventum Have you purchased a Genta-inspired microbrand yet? They have been all the rage the past year and a half, for some reason or another, and here is another one, the Ergon Adventum. I think I have reviewed at least five different Genta designs myself here at Watchreport, but that does not even scratch the surface. There are many others, some on preorder right now, some I didn’t w...

Ball Engineer Hydrocarbon DeepQUEST II Review

Ball Engineer Hydrocarbon DeepQUEST II The Ball Engineer Hydrocarbon Deepquest II is an update to a popular dive watch from the famed Swiss Brand. The original Deepquest was a great-looking watch but had a little too much of the DNA from the regular Hydrocarbon series. This second version updates this deep diver to not only stand out a little more but also includes some great updates such as the H...

Vilhelm Prism Hands-On Review

Vilhelm Prism The Vilhelm Prism is a unique watch, one that takes inspiration from a few watches, most prominently would be the Bvlgari Octo. So, it is an homage, but not a direct homage, and Vilhelm has made it distinctly their own in my opinion. It is funky with its octagon shape, heavy verticle brushing, and U shape bracelet, not to mention quite a striking dial. Vilhelm, for those who are not ...

Rotary Regent Hands-On Review

Rotary Regent The trend continues. What trend? Gerald Genta-inspired pieces. This time it is the Rotary Regent. If you are not familiar with Rotary, they are a British brand that has been around for 125 years and these days, most of their watches are manufactured and assembled in Asia. I have reviewed a few Rotary watches in recent years, such as the Henley GMT and the Super7 Scuba. Both of those ...
