Even if you’re not flying, the Tutima Grand Flieger Airport can

HyperFocal: 0

Or, well, at least it can pretend it can, being as they’re pilot-derived watches. Tutima is certainly no stranger to the world of pilot watches, and I’ll say theirs can buck the extreme austerity trend that many German brands can tend to follow. For the new Tutima Grand Flieger Airport models, we’ve got some heavy doses of color, and even some new ceramic bezels in the mix.

The Minder is an easy way to stay socially distant


Friend of Knapsack Jon Buford has created something pretty cool. It’s basically a little dongle that hangs around your neck and notifies you when someone gets too close. It’s called Minder and it’s crowdfunding now.

From the site:

It’s hip to be square with the Rado True Square


Rado is a brand that, frankly, that suffers the burden of not being on many people’s radars, as far as I can tell. They’ve got an interesting lineup, particularly when you hone in on their use of ceramics. Not just bezel inserts, nossir, it’s the whole watch, bracelet included! While recent releases have been round, this week’s announcement has them giving some love and attention to the Rado True Square collection.

Take flight with the Oris Big Crown ProPilot Big Date


While we’ve reviewed a number of different Oris watches over the years, but I think I’ve settled into my favorite of the bunch coming from their aviation-oriented ProPilot lineup. While I find myself partial to the GMT-equipped one (reviewed here), there is very much an argument to be made for the simpler Oris Big Crown ProPilot Big Date.

Take to the skies with the new G-Shock Gravitymaster GRB200


Remember back when we reviewed the G-Shock Mudmaster? In the words of Chris Farley, “yeah, that was awesome“. Well, if you liked the abilities of that watch, but fancy yourself a pilot more, well, then the new G-Shock Gravitymaster GRB200 may fire your afterburners.

Timex goes Coke


Watches like the Q Timex are just about perfect. They’re less than $200, run simple quartz movements, and look like something out of a 1970s conversation pit. Now there’s even more to love.

Salvage the selvedge with the Oris X Momotaro Divers 65


At this point in time, you are no doubt familiar with the Oris Divers 65 lineup. You may own one, have a friend that has one, or you’ve seen reviews on the line (such as this one from Victor). I last looked at one almost three years ago (here), but when the Oris X Momotaro version came up for a review loaner, I was intrigued.

The Grand Seiko SBGR321 is a slice of sunrise for your wrist


I cannot say that I’ve ever seen Mt. Iwate, let alone a sunrise washing over it. However, for their 60th annivesary, Grand Seiko has released a watch – the SBGR321 – that pulls inspiration from that early-morning scene.

The Zenith Defy doesn’t care if you like black or white


That’s right – when I saw the word of this new release from Zenith, that Michael Jackson tune is what immediately came to mind. Then again, that’s a message that these watches aren’t coming anywhere near. It just so happens that the Zenith Defy 21 and Defy Classic Black & White seamlessly combine the two hues.

The Vincero Marble, celebrating an anniversary


Hey, do you guys remember Vincero? We wrote about their marble watches (in a hands-on review, here) almost six years ago. Well, they’re still making watches, and recently introduced two limited-edition versions of the marble automatic to celebrate hitting that six-year mark.
