There’s definitely something familiar about the Heritor Matador but that’s what makes it special. This clever little homage to the original Seiko 007 runs a Seiko NH35 automatic movement with a 41-hour power reserve and comes with a rubber and steel strap.
While we here at WWR tend to focus very much on the affordable end of the spectrum, we – like anyone – enjoy the occasional foray into the world of luxury. With watches, that can mean a few different things. But, as it was the other month when I reviewed the Versace diver we’re going into the catalog of a luxury fashion brand. Today, that foray takes the form of the Salvatore Ferragamo 1898 Sport GMT.
While spending some time on Instagram, a watch popped up on my feed that really caught my eye: the EPOS Sportive Diver. To be honest I really didn’t know anything about EPOS. It looked very cool, and it was Swiss-made, so I had to check it out. Fortunately, EPOS was able to send me out a loaner and here we are now.
The Bell & Ross BR-03-92-FULL-LUM is bound to turn some heads. The watch is almost all lume, from the lume-infused rubber band to a face that glows like a flashlight. Rather than just applying a little color to the indices, B&R has covered the entire face of this truly fascinating piece.
If you’re up on the watch releases this year, you’ll realized that the Longines Heritage Classic actually came out a while ago. Well, I happened to be out on an extended holiday at the time, but when I saw the news about it, I knew it was a watch I wanted to cover. Better late than never, yeah?
Over the last year, I’ve gotten to play with a few different models from the Zodiac Super Sea Wolf lineup. Some have a more traditional handset (as seen here and here) and play with color; then you have the very much vintage styling of keystone handsets and indices, as we took a look at here. Well, if you wanted an even deeper shade, the better to hide in the depths with, then this latest Zodiac Super Sea Wolf 53 is going to be right at home in your dive kit.
Whatever the time of year, you’ve always got at least one person that you are never quite sure about what to get them. If you’ve got someone on your list that is particularly refined (and that someone could be you, we won’t judge), well, Magellan Jets would like you to know about their 10-hour gift box.
When you get into something – be it art, cars, or watches – you tend to gravitate towards certain things. Perhaps it’s a certain style, or a certain make. While I wouldn’t narrow things down to the point where I’d say I have a favorite watch company, I would definitely say that Sjoo Sandstrom is one of my favorites. They’re doing something interesting with their entry level model, creating the Sjoo Sandstrom Royal Steel Classic Annual Edition.
Back in July, we told you about one of Fossil’s latest releases, the Design Major II. As it turns out, we ended up being able to go hands-on with one, so now we’re back to share our hands-on impressions of the Fossil Design Major II.
When you write about consumer products (be it electronics, cars, or watches) you get used to all sorts of random, unsolicited pitches. That’s how I first became aware of Riskers, but it was – of all things – via a connection on LinkedIn. Mr. Pierre Guerrier – an ex-Richemont executive reached out, and we started talking. He started sharing some details of a new project he was forming with some others, and I was definitely interested. That project was unveiled to the world earlier this month via a Kickstarter project for the new brand, Riskers Watches.
