Going old school with the Tissot Heritage Visodate

0

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

0

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

0

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.

Time sync that is out of this world with the Citizen Satellite Wave GPS Freedom

0

One of the oldest watches I’ve got in my collection (and the first one I spent more than $100 on) is my trusty ol’ G-Shock.  The reason I bought that watch – blue dial aside – is because I was enamored by the solar-powered energy cell and the atomic clock time sync.  I mean, what’s not to like about a watch that (more or less) never needs a new battery and is always accurate?  It’s still a trusty timepiece (it’s become my yard work watch), but I always found the atomic sync to be finicky.  Well, that’s where something like today’s watch, the Citizen Satellite Wave GPS Freedom, steps in.

Kicking it off with the Alexander James NDR001

0

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before.  A smaller watch customizer has been seeing success, and decides to put their hat into the production ring.  Yeah, that’s right, it’s not a story we hear all that often when it comes to Kickstarter campaigns.  When it’s successful, you get some really lovely stuff – see brands like MKII and Orion.  The latest one to jump one is right here in my neck of the woods, with the Alexander James NDR001 campaign wrapping up very soon.

Getting (solar) powered up with the Casio Edifice EQS920DB-1AV

0

Over the last year or so, we’ve taken a look at quite a few different watches in the Casio Edifice line (you can see those here).  In many ways, you can look at these as a more refined cousin of what you’d see in the G-Shock lineup.  Today, we’re having a look at the solar-powered Casio Edifice EQS920DB-1AV.

High-stepping with Casio’s new step-tracker watches

0

It seems these days, everything wants to have some form of fitness to it.  And sure, things like step counters are easy to integrate (or so it seems to me).  Many times, however, you’re going to be getting yourself into some sort of walled garden, when it comes to syncing that data off of the device.  Then you have the approach that Casio has taken with their just-announced step trackers.

Just when I thought I couldn’t like the GoS Sarek any more…

0

… I get news crossing my digital desk that shows just how much more to my tastes the watch can be made!  We’ve talked about other GoS Sarek watches before, and have spoken at length about the lovely colors achieved in the Damascus steel dials.  Those don’t glow, however, so GoS has gone a different direction to get color and lume on these new GoS Sarek models.
