The Lum-Tec M82 is a watch, not a road in Michigan

0

For those who did not ever live in Michigan, that title might take a little explaining. Well, to simplify it a bit, it’s a state road designation (IE, M-14), and for some reason that free association happened when I was taking a look at what the Lum-Tec M82 has to offer.

Who needs a flux capacitor when you’ve got the OVD Time Traveller II ?

Some of the more interesting projects that we come across on Kickstarter come courtesy of other folks we know telling us about projects that they’ve decided to back. The most recent case of this is the watch we’re talking about today, which came to my attention courtesy of Ben over at Tempest Watch. Without further ado, let’s take a look at what makes the OVD Time Traveller II an interesting piece.

I’m selling a few pieces

A quick note to say I’m selling an Omega and a Glycine to fund my next purchase. Would love for you guys to get one of these.

Afternoon Beer Break: Founders Brewing All Day IPA

0

For today’s Afternoon Beer Break, we’re going to talk about one of my favorite summertime, camping-cooler-ready, beers. I mentioned in the Revolution Every Day Hero that it was ok, but it was a distant second to my favorite session IPA. Well, friends, here it is, in the #1 slot – the Founders Brewing All Day IPA.

How do you define luxury, on the HourTime show

0

In this episode of the HourTime podcast we talk about what makes a luxury watch luxurious, and whether something is a brand, or a legacy.

We also mention Doc Vail’s NTH and what it means to stretch out from being a one man shop to having retailers making sales for him. Remember to donate to Jason Dill’s GoFundMe, and possibly even win a watch!

Introducing the Berd Vay’e Passage through Time

0

Often, when one has a hobby, that hobby then starts filtering its way into some of the other “stuff” you’ve got laying around. Really into cars? Well, you might have some scale models on the shelf, or posters up on the wall. Music is your thing? Well, you might have gold records and instruments adorning the space. If watches are your jam (and you’re reading this, so it’s probably the case) your options are a bit more limited. Sure, there are coffee table books and a few artists creating interesting pieces, but most of us probably feel limited to just clocks and display cases. Well, the folks at Berd Vay’e want to offer you another choice, with their Passage through Time sculpture.

Rpaige takes on the Chrysler Building

0

It’s hard to find a good watch that looks like a building but it looks like our buddy and podcast friend Richard Paige has done just that. His limited edition, $6,300 piece, the “Chrysler Building,” is supposed to bring to mind men with snap-brim hats and gleaming spires shooting into open space.

Oh, and also gargoyles.

Cutting cords with the PaMu Slide

We’ve reviewed a variety of items you might want to take along for your workout, primarily in the realm of shoes and fitness watches (most recently, the Polar Vantage M). But what about tunes? As with most people, I like something to listen to, be it music or a podcast, while I work up a sweat. In the past, I’ve just opted for whatever inexpensive bluetooth headset I could find. Those got the job done, but there was always a wire banging around around, connecting the two sides. Well, recently I got to spend some time with a headset that takes that wire out of the mix, the PaMu Slide.

Up close with a fake Rolex

0

This video might be a little breathless but it’s a fascinating look at a fake Rolex. While at first glance you’re almost certain that the two watches he shows are the same, it becomes clearer once you start seeing the innards and the workmanship of the face. Given that the replica is over $1,000 you’re paying for a little extra care and feeding from the faker and, more important, you might not know you’re screwed until it’s too late.

Introducing the Ball Watch Roadmaster Marine GMT

1

In many ways, it can be quite easy to predict what I may like. Does it have Batman or Bob Ross in it? Insert “Shut up and take my money” meme right here. More precisely, when it comes to watches, a GMT movement will immediately grab my eyes. Throw in some tritium tubes, and well, that’s buttercream icing on the cake. Which is why Victor knew he needed to send the info on the Ball Watch Roadmaster Marine GMT my way once he ran across it.
