Ball Skindiver Heritage Watch Review

Ball Skindiver Heritage If you are looking for a Skindiver, you have a lot to choose from when it comes to Ball Watch Company. This one here, the Ball Engineer Master II Skindiver Heritage (its full name), which I will refer to throughout the review as the Ball Skiniver Heritage, is one of many available on the Ball website. At first glance, it is kind of overload if you search Skindiver and you w...

Ocean Crawler Palomino Island Champion Diver

Ocean Crawler Palomino Island The very first watch released from Ocean Crawler was the Champion Diver, and now there is a very slightly updated version, the Ocean Crawler Palomino Island Champion Diver. That is quite a mouthful, I think most will refer to them as the new Champion Diver, but what you need to know is that the only differences are new dials and 3 colors of said new dial. The one show...

OWC World Timer Watch Review

OWC World Timer If you are new to the microbrand watch scene, you may be thinking that the OWC World Timer is one of the latest from an upstart brand. Orange Watch Company (OWC) has been around for about 10 years now though, hailing from Australia and a brand that really does go all out to build the best watch they can. Unlike some brands these days who take an existing design and/or case and slap...

A look at the Seiko Presage Style 60s

Seiko Presage Style 60s Retro is king these days and as such, almost every brand is releasing watches with a style from the 60s and 70s. Seiko is no slouch when it comes to new models, so they have brought out the Seiko Presage Style 60s, a watch that takes from the 1964 Seiko Crown Chronograph. Available in 2 different styles (three-hand and open heart) and 5 different colors, I chose this dark g...

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...
