French watchmaker Charriol celebrates its Celtic Legacy

0

The original Celtic Legacy was an oddly-named but surprisingly popular timepiece that landed on wrists decades ago. Featuring a crown at four o’clock and a uniquely-positioned seconds dial at seven o’clock, the watch was a fashion icon.

Introducing the Paulin Neo

Even with as many watches as I’ve seen over the years, I still managed to be surprised every now again. And pleasantly so! One of the latest very pleasant surprises that I ran across is the delightful Paulin Neo.

Zodiac + Timeless Luxury = a new limited edition

0

I don’t know about you, but for me, I really like the various editions that Zodiac puts together of their Super Sea Wolf watches. It’s a solid watch, and the color play that they work up make for interesting looks. Their latest, the Zodiac Super Sea Wolf GMT Blackout Edition, was just released.

Learning to chill out and enjoy a Seiko Willard homage for what it is

0

While I’d love to spend more than $1000 on a watch I once saw in a movie that’s not exactly in the cards right now, especially since, thanks to the current global situation, I spend all day inside my home office and have no one to show it off to beyond my immediate family. There’s only so many times your loved ones can feign interest in your latest watch.

Look who’s back: the Alpina Startimer Pilot Heritage

0

In my book (and I think that of my fellow writers here at WWR), Alpina is a brand that doesn’t seem to get nearly the attention that it should. I still hold their Alpiner lineup in high internal ranking (both the Alpiner 4 and the Business Timer), and their latest re-introduction of the Alpina Startimer Pilot Heritage should have classic Flieger/pilot watch fans square in their sights.

At this point, Casio’s partnership with Honda Racing really shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone. We’ve written about it before, and reviewed one of the models over on Knapsack. Today, we’re doing a quick rundown on the latest, the Casio Edifice EFS560HR.

Reviewing the new PHOIBOS Proteus 300M Automatic Diver PY028C

0

Phoibos makes a great line of well made and budget friendly watches. Dive watches are their specialty and I have been impressed with all the ones I have reviewed. Most have unique dials housed mainly in polished stainless steel, or bronze cases, but now there is this new one – the new Proteus 300M diver. What makes this different is the the case is done in aged steel. This is my first Proteus review, so let’s check it out.

Accutron “goes green” for their 60th Anniversary

0

Well, to be fair, it’s the Empire State Building going green on October 25th, to celebrate their 60th annivesary. They’re also giving you a chance to win their book (which we wrote about) over on their Instagram account. Embrace the electrostatic!

Introducing the Citizen Arezzo collection

0

Since it’s mostly guys writing about watches here at WWR, those are what we tend to write about. And frankly, that’s shortchanging a whole slice of watch brand catalogs, and we’re trying to do better with that. One of the latest to pop up is the brand new Citizen Arezzo collection.
