Neminus Master Diver 1000 is bold as bold can be

0

Most watches are just “Meh.” The Neminus Master Diver 1000 isn’t. When I saw this massive watch with bronze case and hefty hands, I really had to get a hold of one of these. I reached out to them and they were kind enough to send me out one for review.

Bottom line? It’s amazing.

Everyone at a computer uses a mouse (or trackpad) to point an arrow on a screen with icons and windows with applications. It’s easy to forget that the future we got wasn’t the only one, or how much of the paradigm we owe to that first machine.

At WWR, we cover a wide variety of watches (and watch brands), though most of our focus is on the affordable end of the spectrum. Somewhat out of necessity, and somewhat due to the explosion of small independent brands, we’ve covered any number of small brands. Some of these have been blips on the radar, and then there are brands like Hager, which just truck along and all of a sudden, they’re hitting the 10-year mark. While it’s not necessarily to commemorate the mark, they have a new collection – the Hager Broad Arrow – available.

0

I know, I know – I just wrote about the Ball Roadmaster M Icebreaker a few months ago (which you can see here). But, you see, there’s a new version out, and while I’ve tended to like the Fireman line from Ball, I think the Roadmaster lineup is quickly becoming my new favorite from the brand. So, what does the Ball Roadmaster M Icebreaker Arabic have in store for you?

Well, friends, today is different – the campaign for the Vesuviate Swiss Chronograph just launched yesterday, and we’ve our hands-on review to help you make your decision.

Dive into retro with the Zodiac Super Sea Wolf 68 Saturation

0

Zodiac has been charging – hard – into resurrecting their catalog. I’ve reviewed a few different ones from the Super Sea Wolf line, and have come away favorably impressed. Then again, the look and dimensions have frankly been right in my wheelhouse. If you want a different look (aka, definitely a 60s vibe from the case and color scheme) then the Zodiac Super Sea Wolf 68 Saturation may be right up your alley.

Swiss watchmaker TAG Heuer was founded by Edouard Heuer in 1860, and quickly developed a reputation for quality, innovative timepieces. Fast-forwarding to the 20th century, Edouard’s descendant, Jack Heuer became enamored of the Carrera Panamericana, one of the world’s most demanding road races. In 1963, Heuer released the TAG Heuer Carrera, a tribute to the race and to the drivers that compete in it.

Well, for starters, it’s the largest fresh water lake in the world, holding approximately 20% of the fresh lake water in the world.

Tumi is the Bose of bags… and that’s good

I’ve always avoided Tumi. They seemed a little too expensive, a little too boring, and a little too… snooty? A Tumi booth at a conference I attended featured guards that didn’t let anyone inside to see the bags and, while I can understand the desire to protect against copycats, it was a bit of overkill.

So with that in mind, it was with some trepidation that I picked up a Tumi Aviano Slim Brief, a compact laptop bag with a front “iPad pocket” big enough for a Kindle and a series of internal pockets that offer space for notebooks, cables, and pens. My final opinion?

This is a really good bag.
