Pancerna P.7 Pilot Hands-On Review

Pancerna P.7 Pilot   These days many microbrands or those wanting to be a microbrand go the easy route. Lots of off-the-shelf cases and parts and not much originality. Pancerna and the Pancerna P.7 Pilot is part of a small percentage of brands that strive to design and produce something more innovative or at the very least make everything from the ground up with no off-the-shelf parts. When w...

Cronus Prototype 3 Hands-On Review

Cronus Prototype 3 Every now and then, I get to introduce a brand most of you have probably never heard of. That brand is Cronus Watches and the watch I am reviewing today is the Cronus Prototype 3. Now, a few things to mention right at the beginning. 1. No, this is not actually a prototype. More on that in a bit. 2. Cronus is not a new brand, with their first watch launched quite a few years ago,...

Trintec ZULU COM-01 Hands-On Review

Trintec ZULU COM-01 Have you been looking for a new watch? Waffling between diver or pilot watch? The Trintec ZULU COM-01 is the best of both worlds, combining a pilot-style dial and hands with a timing bezel in a rugged, no-nonsense chunky diver-style case. This ZULU watch is also 200m water-resistant with a screw-down crown and follows a similar design language to other ZULU watches from Trintec...

RZE Endeavour Hands-On Watch Review

RZE Endeavour I review a lot of watches. While I always try and review a watch that I like, or at the very least see the potential in, not every watch blows my skirt up (I don’t wear skirts, but nothing wrong if you do). The RZE Endeavour is a watch that I was very much looking forward to getting in my hands. RZE is a new brand, with only one watch under their belt so far, the Endeavour bein...

Victorinox FieldForce Titanium LE Hands-On Review

Victorinox FieldForce Titanium LE In the world of watches, there seems to be some sort of weird stigma around quartz watches. At one point in time, I shared this opinion myself, but I feel if a watch is attractive and well made, the fact that it is quartz does not bother me all that much. The Victorinox FieldForce Titanium LE (quite a mouthful huh?) is a classic looking piece and the first of two ...

MeisterSinger Astroscope Hands-On Review

MeisterSinger Astroscope Have you ever said to yourself, day and date is nice on a watch, but I would love if there were some celestial bodies I could correlate with the days? Well, MeisterSinger has a watch for you then! Yes, the MeisterSinger Astroscope combines horology and astronomy together, along with a one-handed mechanism to give you a watch that some would call quirky; I’ll label it...

Venturo SkinDiver Hands-On Review

Venturo SkinDiver The Venturo Skindiver is the third watch from the young upstart brand. Well, that’s not true though, as Venturo, for those that are not aware, is a brand under the umbrella of Gruppo Gamma. Originally the plan was to market Venturo on its own as a separate brand but time constraints from the owner and trying to push a new brand not associated with an already popular microbr...

Spinnaker Tesei Mille Metri Review

Spinnaker Tesei Mille Metri Spinnaker is a brand I have heavily covered here over the years. The latest piece is the Spinnaker  Tesei Mille Metri and is retailing for $1,350. In the video above, I really get into the pricing issues with this watch, so I won’t belabor it here, but I will reiterate to make sure you use either the coupon code on the website or find a good coupon code online. St...

Seiko 5 Sports Review-The New SKX?

Seiko 5 Sports In 2019 Seiko did something none of us were prepared for-they discontinued the Seiko SKX. In 2020, Seiko released its apparent replacement, the Seiko 5 Sports series. These new models come in a copious amount of variations, so those who used to love to mod their SKX will be happy to see so many different models available, though they all include the same handset and overall dial lay...

Reverie Diver Watch Review

Reverie Diver The Reverie Diver was released earlier this year through a successful Kickstarter campaign. As usual with most campaigns, there were incentives and early bird prices but even at the current sale price of $395 is quite the value in my opinion. For those not familiar with Reverie, the company started operations in 2014 and is based out of Singapore. Naming it just Diver was not their f...

MeisterSinger Salthora Meta X Watch Review

MeisterSinger Salthora Meta X In the world of watch collecting and horology in general, jumping hour complications are not exactly the norm. MeisterSinger only produces single-handed pieces though, and they make quite the array of models, not just one or two. The MesiterSinger Salthora Meta X I have in hand for review is a cross between a traditional jump hour complication and a dive watch of sort...

Duzu Watches Pilot DW-P2 Review

Duzu Watches Pilot Watch brands and design can be complex and hard to get right. The Duzu Watches Pilot watch fortunately got a lot right in both form and functionality. It hasn’t always been this way though. The owner of the brand, Wayne, even states it has been somewhat rocky since he first launched his brand, but feels he has it dialed in at this point and will only get better moving forward. A...
