ZUM, the watch with a face a robot could love, on Kickstarter

0

There are many wristwatches, and sometimes they all blend together. The ZUM is a regulator watch – meaning, the hours and minutes hands aren’t centrally located. This one’s a little different – and if you don’t move fast, you’ll miss it.

First announced over the summer, Seiko’s limited edition, 43mm Street Fighter watches are now trickling into stores worldwide. And while we haven’t yet worn these Seiko 5 Sports-based pieces ourselves, there does appear to be enough here to entice fans of the long-running fighting game series. Hadoken!

Prototype fun with the Yema Superman Bronze

0

Over the last year, we’ve been fortunate to go hands-on with quite a number of the models that Yema has in their catalog. You may have caught word that they recently launched another one on Kickstarter as of late, and we got to spend some time with a prototype of the Yema Superman Bronze.

TAG decides its chronos don’t have to be square to be hip

1860 was the year that Edouard Heuer founded his watchmaking shop in the mountains of Switzerland, and today that number has an added significance. 

TAG Heuer has announced two limited edition pieces as part of the ongoing celebration of the brand’s 160th anniversary. Available in blue and white dial versions, these 44mm watches are the first special editions of the TAG Heuer Carrera Sport Chronograph that was introduced earlier this year, and will be available in blue and white dial versions. Each version will be limited to 1860 pieces each, which we think has a nice ring to it.

Just in time for cooler temps – it’s the Shinola Ice Monster

0

It’s been a minute since we’ve had a new release in the diving-focused line from Shinola. Most recently it was their bronze variant (which we covered here), and before that we went hands-on with the Lake Michigan Monster (here). Well, here comes winter, and a new watch perfect for that color palette – the Shinola Ice Monster.

Introducing the Ball Engineer II Timetrekker

0

You know me, watch friends – I like GMT complications, I’m a big fan of tritium tubes, and I really dig a cyclops over a date window. Mix all of those together, and you certainly have my attention, and Ball has done that in the past. Well, this time, they’ve taken things up a notch by finally doing something I’d hope they do for awhile now – put flat tritium tubes onto the handset! That’s right – the Ball Engineer II Timetrekker has done something new.

Pip pip and all that. Casio has announced a new GRAVITYMASTER model in collaboration with UK’s Royal Air Force. The model, which is a specially designed G-Shock, comes with a carbon-infused resin bezel and band.

Spending time with the Atticus Pelion

Would you look at that – I’m back with a review! I just recently had some much-needed time off to reset and recharge, but that’s over, and I’m back to spill some digital ink. Today’s review is actually a loaner I had come in prior to vacation time, but life is what it is. Better late than never, it’s the review of the Atticus Pelion.

Chopard takes on Daytona and the 1970s. It’s the new Chopard Alpine Eagle XL Chrono

0

Chopard have been making beautiful watches for years, that are somewhat forgettable. If you think of them at all, it’s likely for the Mille Miglia Chopard watches with silicone rubber strap made to look like tire tread.

But now, they’re going old school, and reaching further upscale. The Alpine Eagle XL Chrono is a 3 register chronograph in a sports watch steel case, with integrated bracelet. It’s very 70s, babe. Boffo, babe, socko, babe.

Meet the 10th-anniversary Precisionist X

0

Bulova makes a watch that is precise to 1/1000th of a second. Aptly called the Precisionist, this piece has been around for a decade and is quite a feather in Bulova’s otherwise staid cap. Now a new model is adding gold and Damascus steel to the mix and a few grand to the price.
