Original vs. Midsize “Casioak” Watches: Is the GMAS Only For Women? – Casio G-Shock GAMAS2100 vs. GA2100
Posted by Nick L. on June 16, 2021

It’s been over a year since I originally reviewed the Casio G-Shock GA2110SU (also known within watch collecting circles as the “Casioak”). I would have thought by now that supply would have caught up with demand, but many of the colors are still often sold out. Unsurprisingly, Casio has continued to capitalize on the popularity of the series by releasing a new line of slightly smaller Casioaks. The watches are marketed as being for women, but in my opinion, some (or all) of the colors could also be worn by a man with a smaller wrist, or just one who prefers smaller sized watches.

Seiko Prospex “62MAS” SBDC101 (SPB143) Watch Review
Posted by Nick L. on May 26, 2021

The Seiko divers that got us unto this hobby were so unconventional as to feel special despite their low price. You didn’t feel like you were buying them because they were a cheaper look-alike of the watch you really wanted but couldn’t afford. So does a more conventional and also more expensive Seiko diver still capture the charm that got us into this hobby?

Tudor North Flag Watch Review – Overlooked Classic or Discontinued For a Reason? (91210N)
Posted by Nick L. on May 19, 2021

Anyone who even casually follows watch media probably read coverage of Tudor’s 2021 new releases. Unless you were really paying attention though, you might not have noticed that Tudor also quietly removed a few models from its website. I had been hearing rumors of this coming for a while, but the official cancellation of the North Flag on the other hand did not make sense to me.

Tissot PRX (T1374101105100) Watch Review
Posted by Nick L. on April 28, 2021

By now, I’m sure that you’ve also noticed another 1970’s trend that has resurfaced. Yes, stainless steel sports watches with integrated bracelets are “in.” It’s to the point that giving five (or more) figures of your hard-earned money to Audmars Piguet or Patek Philippe to buy such a watch from them is considered a massive privilege. Luckily, for the rest of us, more affordable brands are starting to jump on the bandwagon. Tissot is one of the latest, with the (very faithful) reissue of its 1978 PRX model.
