Hands on Watch Reviews

Dan Henry 1968

Dan Henry 1968 Dan Henry Watches are a hot commodity these days. Many, many watch enthusiasts have been grabbing at least one of the 5 different collections Dan Henry offers. There are good reasons for that. One, of course, is the price. They are very affordable with their most expensive model only being $250; that would be the compressor style diver I reviewed here a few months ago, the 1970. The...

Marc & Sons Diver Watch Professional

Marc & Sons Diver Watch Professional Bucking the trend of smaller watches is the slightly upgraded Marc & Sons Diver Watch Professional. At 46mm and 17mm it is quite big and chunky, though not massively over-sized like most Invicta Watches. These days 42mm is really my sweet spot, so wearing this for a week was slightly uncomfortable, though I did so and even though I would not personally ...

Armand Nicolet J09 | Watch Review

Armand Nicolet J09 Armand Nicolet is a brand that I know in name, but not overly familiar with their watches. It is not one that I see the watch community post about on social media, such as Instagram or Facebook Watch groups often. After receiving this model for review, the Armand Nicolet J09 Day/Date, I honestly had to wonder why this brand has not been getting the love it deserves currently. No...

Nodus Trieste | Watch Review

Nodus Trieste The microbrand watch segment continues to grow, and if you are a follower of us here at Watchreport, you know we review many different microbrands, from the new to the established. Today, we look at a new one, the Nodus Trieste. Microbrands share a lot in common for the most part, but one thing that differentiates some from the others is what type of watch they bring to the market. S...

Favre Lueba Raider Deep Blue

Favre Leuba Raider Deep Blue The name Favre Leuba has been around since 1737. It is the second oldest watch brand, in name, ever. I can go on an on about their history, but that can be easily googled. The brand has changed hands a few times since going defunct in the 1970’s, but was purchased by Titan Co. Ltd in 2011. It took a few years to bring the company back from the ashes, but late las...

Gruppo Gamma MKIV Vanguard

Gruppo Gamma MKIV Vanguard Many here know I have long been a supporter of Gruppo Gamma. They continue to improve their watches and the Gruppo Gamma Vanguard MKIV is no different. With this latest release, there a couple of firsts for the brand. One is the 42mm case size, their smallest to date; an exhibition case back is another and a super sandwich dial. The quality, as usual, is there, especiall...

Melbourne Sorrento

Melbourne Sorrento Watch Review It’s been some time since I’ve had an opportunity to take a look at a watch from the Melbourne Watch Company. Direct from Melbourne Watch Company, their focus is to utilize quality materials such as surgical grade 316L stainless steel, scratch resistant sapphire crystals and high grade mechanical movements. The company strives to offer watches to consumers at an aff...

Victorinox Swiss Army Titanium INOX : Watch Review

Victorinox Swiss Army Titanium INOX The Victorinox Swiss Army Titanium INOX is one of the latest versions of the INOX, and quite possibly my favorite so far. I know they have also recently released a forged/molded carbon fiber version, and though I have not seen that one in person, I think I can still safely say my favoritism lies with the titanium. I have quite a few reasons for that, which I wil...

Dreyfuss and Co. 1924

Dreyfuss and Co. 1924 It still amazes me when I come across a brand I have not heard of. That would be the case with the Dreyfuss and Co. 1924 Series. I had to do some research, unlike some brands that I review, as I knew absolutely nothing about this brand. That of course makes reviewing it a little difficult. Yes, I have the watch in hand, so I can obviously see if it is quality or not, but wher...

Luminox Dress Field 1832

Luminox Dress Field 1832 I have a soft spot for Luminox. It was the first “real” watch I purchased when I was about 16 years old. I got it from a now defunct store by the name of Service Merchandise, a popular store in the USA for some time. They sold many brands from Seiko to Tag Heuer, and of course Luminox. At the time, around 1996, Luminox was still making mostly resin cased watche...

Magrette MPP Diver Steel

Magrette MPP Diver Steel Magrette has released their updated version of the MPP Diver, (Moana Pacific Pro), which has a slightly new look and an upgraded Swiss movement. A few years back I reviewed the first version and overall I was quite satisfied with it. I think I can say the same for this new version, though I think the makeover could have been a little more extreme. The Magrette MPP Diver St...

Gavox Avidiver

Gavox Avidiver I have had the opportunity to look over watches from Gavox in the past. I have admired each model and thought the company did a pretty good job overall with aviation themed watches. Solid looks and solid components were a given but I was wondering when the company would release an automatic watch and maybe a dive style watch. Well now I have the opportunity to examine just such a wa...
