Watches

Some people see watches as a single function device, and thus useless in this age of cell phones and other digital devices. Well, those people are wrong. Watches are more than a way to tell time, they’re a form of personal expression, or a way to show off your wealth at least. Our resident watch aficionados bring you reviews of the latest and greatest watches on the market, as well as a slew of useful watch advice.

TokyoFlash Kisai Quasar Watches with Geometric Display Thumbnail

Tokyoflash makes some of the funkiest digital watches I’ve ever seen, some of their watches take quite a bit of time to get used to. Their latest watch, the Tokyoflash Kisai Quasar with geometric display is another one of those watches that “camouflages the time display”. The Kisai Quasar watches come in black or white [...]

breitling navitimer cosmos

There’s no doubt about it: Breitling is one of our favourite watchmakers.  These watches are world-class timepieces: they’re chronometer-certified according to COSC (Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres), the Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute. Breitling offers discriminating men the classic look they want with updates that make us want even more of an already fantastic thing. It’s [...]

TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre CH 80 Chronograph Watches Thumbnail

Lately, TAG Heuer has been producing some very impressive timepieces. I used to think of TAG watches as more of fashion watches that you can pick up at stores like Macy’s or The Bay, at malls. Their newer stuff, however is designed better, looks better quality, and is priced to be competing with the likes [...]

Hermès Dressage L’heure masquée – The One Hand Watch? Thumbnail

The Hermés Dressage L’heure masquée is a very unusual watch.  Just looking at the dial, you should notice something missing, one of the hands.  How does one tell time on a mechanical watch that comes with only one hand? The watch features a clever design that hides the hour hand beneath the minute hand.  When [...]

Wear and Tear: The Wonderful, Wind Up World of Watch Repair Thumbnail

What is as effective as a Swiss clock, but takes years to be born? It’s a watchmaker. This may be a bit of timely watch repair humor, but in all earnestness, people have a multitude of questions related to watchmakers and watch repair. You’re probably thinking, “Why do we call them watchmakers if they only [...]

In 1969 man landed on the moon, it was a historic event and showed what the human race is capable of.  The vessel used to land on the moon was the Apollo 11, and since we write about watches on this site, you know what I’m going to say next… the first watch worn by [...]

Romain Gauthier Logical One Secret Watches Thumbnail

Last year I wrote about the incredible Romain Gauthier Logical One watch, which I really liked; now the company has released an updated version of that watch, called the Romain Gauthier Logical One Secret.  What’s so secret about this watch?  If you’d look at the Logical One watch, you’ll see that this new version hides [...]

MB&F Legacy Machine No. 2 Thumbnail

When Maximilian Büsser and Friends (MB&F) introduced the Legacy Machine No. 1 (LM1) in 2011, it was a departure from their unusual (and very cool) looking watches.  The LM watch line was created to showcase the company’s technical knowhow, not just their aesthetic genius, by incorporating some very challenging technologies into these watches. A few [...]

Ressence Type 1 Watches Thumbnail

About a year ago we wrote about the very unusual Ressence Type 3 watch, created by a Belgian industrial designer and watchmaker, Benoit Mintiens.  For a follow up to that watch, they’ve now released the Ressence Type 1 watches. The idea here is the same as the Ressence Type 3; in summary, the Type 1 [...]

Ball Fireman Storm Chaser Pro Watches Thumbnail

We write posts on a lot of very expensive watches, watches that most of us will never even see in the real world, let alone own.  Then there are watches that are within reach, costing a few thousand dollars; I know that may seem like a lot of money to some, but for a watch [...]
