Released at BaselWorld 2019, the Seiko Prospex LX line provided near-Grand Seiko quality (and pricing) in a series of premium tool watches. Designed to be worn at sea (diver), on land (field), and in the sky (GMT), six models total were released in titanium with and without black coatings. The sky series included the SNR033, titanium bracelet to match the case, a blue dial, and a “batman” style black and blue roating 24 hr bezel.
Seiko Presage Cocktail Time “Mojito” (SRPE45) – $299 The Seiko Presage collection is known for their gorgeous, eye-catching dials, and the Seiko Presage Cocktail Time “Mojito” (SRPE45) is no exception. It features an intricate, embossed dial pattern reminiscent of a cut-glass cocktail tumbler. If you’re looking to get on the green watch hype train without […]
A racing watch is a different thing from a car watch. A car watch sometimes isn’t even a chronograph, but typically features styling cues taken from a car. Perhaps it has a fake redline from a rev counter across the dial. Car watches are difficult to execute well, but I’m reviewing a car watch anyway. It’s the Autodromo Group B. My favorite from the popular microbrand.
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.
Omega Constellation Globemaster (188.8.131.52.03.001) – $3,700 The Omega Constellation Globemaster (184.108.40.206.03.001) is arguably one of Omega’s most versatile pieces, and is the world’s first Master Chronometer. In short, this means the Omega Globemaster runs within the chronometer specifications (0 – +5 seconds per day on average) and is anti-magnetic up to 15,000 gauss. It’s also […]
Seiko Giugiaro x White Mountaineering (SCED065) – $300 The Seiko x Giugiaro relationship is one of the most notable and distinctive collaborations in the watch world. It all began in 1983 with four “Speed Master” watches, two of which were worn by and subsequently named after the characters “Ellen Ripley” and “Bishop” in the 1986 film Aliens. After […]
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?
Seiko Yachtman UFO (6138-0011) – $385 The Yachtman is no stranger to vintage Seiko enthusiasts. Its better known as the UFO, due to its flying saucer-shaped case. It is a bruiser of a vintage chronograph measuring in at 44 mm wide and 15 mm tall. Bet you didn’t know that the Yachtman is a frequent […]
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.
Seiko Sportura Kinetic Chronograph (SLQ007) – $1,500 The SLQ007 is one of the most collectible pieces in the Seiko Sportura Collection, and has been nicknamed as the “Jay Leno”, as this was the watch he wore for years on his hit internet show: “Jay Leno’s Garage”. The listing comes with the original papers, but not […]
Christopher Ward developed a “bang for the buck” reputation among watch enthusiasts as is has been “cutting out the middle man” before the term had become a cliché. Its contender in the “retro-dive” category is the C65 Trident Automatic.
Tudor Black Bay 58 Blue (79030) – $3,395 The Black Bay 58 Blue was one of the most hyped watches of 2020, building on the existing BB58 demand while tying in the historically significant Marine Nationale shade of blue. This listing is a close to complete set, and includes the original inner and outer box, warranty […]
