If you recall, back at the end of last year, I reviewed a pair of socks that vowed to stay odor-free. So, I put them to the test, and they lived up to their claims. While you certainly could try going from the gym to the office with those socks, most would probably want to change things out for a dry pair. To that end, they’ve got a dressier option, and we spent some time with a pair of them.
When we hear about a watch that will track all sorts of interesting things, we immediately think of something that’s a fitness or activity tracker. Those are very micro-focused, and rely on a connection to a phone. Well, what if you flip the script and go for macro-tracking? If you’re tracking things on a large scale – say, the sun and moon – then you don’t need the phone. That’s what the newest Yes WorldWatch is offering you – super accurate solar, lunar, and timekeeping, without needing to be constantly charged or lashed to your phone.
Long time readers of the site will know that there is no love lost between chronographs and me. I mean, sure, I get the utility (if you find them useful) and as complication, they are demonstrate a level of technical expertise. I just don’t have much use for them, so they become another complexity for maintenance that – in my world – is just unnecessary. Every now and again, though, something does pop up in a chronograph flavor that catches my eye. And that’s what happened with the Hamilton Intra-Matic Panda Chronograph.
Basecamp is where you set up supplies and camp before beginning an ascent. It’s also UNDONE’s latest customizable watch. UNDONE has a history of making watches with online customizer websites, so that you can choose how you’d like your watch to look. This time, UNDONE’s back with BASECAMP, a vintage styled dive watch.
National Record Store Day is upon us, and for all of you crazy cats and kittens, it’s a time to appreciate that thing we love, music with the sweet, sweet sound of analog vinyl, a needle riding in the groove on a platter spinning round. Or, y’know, watches, because all we have is each other, and time. And in this case, Fossil and Crosley.
As you know, we’ve reviewed several different beers from Rogue Ales so far. With one exception, we’ve focused primarily on their IPAs. Well, not everyone likes to get all hopped up. As a matter of fact, before I switched to IPAs, dark porters and stouts were my favorite. Today, we’ve got a double-whammy, taking a look at two different Rogue Chocolate Stouts.
Hey, so remember back when we told you about Mido’s new diver, the Mido Ocean Star Diver 600? Well, because the watch world is (seemingly) chock-a-block full of anniversary dates, we’ve hit a special one for the Ocean Star line. It’s the 75-year mark, and to commemorate it, they’ve found a new way to test the water-fastness of the watch. Mido is partnering up with the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series.
It’s spring time, and you know what that means. April showers, May flowers, and all that. It also means – usually – an explosion of color. While that’s often found in nature, not nearly as much on our wrists (well, only if you don’t count strap changes). Casio wants to help you out with their newest versions of the Casio ProTrek PRG330.
Parmigiani Fleurier, everyone’s favorite watch brand named after a cheese, has come out with a new version of the Tonda Metrographe, a beautiful, manufacture chronograph with huge date window (not a big date, complication, unfortunately).
We’ve written about Coalatree a few different times (you can check those out here), and I like the approach that they’re taking for things. They seem to have hit a balance between outdoors and travel, with regards to where their products would best fit (spoiler: it’s for both). Their latest entry is now live on Kickstarter, the Coalatree Evolution Hoodie.
