H. Moser & Cie announces a tourbillon for everyday wear – but it’ll cost you

0

I love H. Moser & Cie. They have a huge sense of humor, and aren’t afraid to take on everything from the Apple Watch to mocking their fellow Swiss watchmaking brands for making vintage-inspired watches rather than and unusual watches. And now, they’re releasing two models, one at $59,900, and the other at a much more… hang on, I’m just searching my couch cushions over here… $19,900 USD. In typical H. Moser fashion, these watches give a nod to the conventional, while doing something smile-inducing.

Lining up the Diefendorff Cornelius 1776

0

Your eyes do not deceive you – this is the second time, in fairly short succession, that we’re talking about the watch brand out of New York, Diefendorff.  The last time around, John really took things on the New York angle.  Our second look comes from the Second City, and will let you know what a Chicagoan thinks of the Diefendorff Corenelius 1776.

Breitling honors aviation history with the Warhawk collection

0

Breitling is announcing three new watches today that hearken back to the golden era of aviation, when planes were painted with nose art, and pilots sat strapped in behind large engines and propellers, spinning just feet in front of them. The Breitling Aviator 8 Curtiss Warhawk collection honors Curtiss-Wright, the aviation manufacturer.

Watch winding taken to an art form with the Bernard Favre Planet Double Axis

Now that my watch obsession has made watch collection large enough to wear a different watch everyday of the week, I needed to keep my watches ready to go on a moments notice. After getting a six watch winder I was pretty happy since it does a great job. Watching my watches rotating around is really cool, but I could only see the dials. I want more. 

Afternoon Beer Break: Rogue Batsquatch Hazy IPA

0

Our last Afternoon Beer Break seemed rather well-received, so we’re back with another edition (and do foresee this continuing on).  In the last shipment we had in from our unofficial official beer of WWR, Rogue, we had to varieties come in.  We had the Rogue Outta Line, which we reviewed the other week; today, we’ll cover off on the other one that came in, the Rogue Batsquatch Hazy IPA.

Going old school with the Tissot Heritage Visodate

1

It was all the way back in the golden days of 2014 when I first experienced the Tissot Visodate (you can see that here). I came away favorably impressed from the review, but if memory serves, it felt like the watch was just a touch thicker than I would have preferred. Well, fast-forward to 2019, and we’ve got the Tissot Heritage Visodate addressing that concern.

Limited edition: The bronze Borealis Adraga watch – big, bold, bronze

0

CuSn8 is the correct notation for the particular Bronze allow that Borealis is using on the Adraga, a new, limited edition explorer’s watch. There are four variations, limited to 25 pieces each. It’s an excellent interpretation of the field watch, and we hope you manage to pre-order one.

Building some fun with TogetherMade

So, if you remember, late last year (see here) we had brought you word of a company from out west called TogetherMade that was creating some rather ingenious kits to get you and your little ones creating things together. You know, the sort of items that you might make when you were away at summer camp.  Well, today is the first part of our review of some of the items that TogetherMade has on offer.

Diefendorff brings Brooklyn cool to your wrist

Ayyy! Fugetaboutit! I got yer egg cream right here! In the hand that is wearing my Diefendorff watch, a new $949 timepiece from a real Brooklyn watch house.

The watch, which comes in multiple styles, shines brightest when comes with a carbon fiber face and brightly polished steel case. Called the 1776 Design, the watch is slightly reminiscent of a Patek Nautilus but without the odd case design.

Afternoon beer break: lining up the Rogue Outta Line IPA

1

Well, there’s no official contract in place, nor will you see any manner of ads plastered all over the place here.  But, suffice to say, Rogue has become the “unofficial” beer of WWR.  They took a chance on our expanded coverage (fun, affordable stuff that we – and you – like), and we’ve gotten to experience some of their new releases.  Today, we’ll have a look at the Rogue Outta Line IPA.
