Yesterday’s review featured a collaboration with a company out of New York, and today, we’ve got a review from a resurrected watch brand that is calling New York home – Benrus. To be sure, this is a re-resurrection, as we saw watches from that brand (here) a few years back. These new models are supposed to “focus on their roots” and we recently spent some time with the Benrus Classic.
You know me – I’ll pretty much take a look at anything when it comes to watches. Sure, I’ve got my preferences, but I don’t mind checking out a variety of watches, and even if it’s a style I don’t care for, I look for details that do grab me. That’s the boat I found myself rowing with this Hamilton Khaki Pilot Schott NYC loaner.
In what could be either the saddest or happiest thing you see today, a woman on a Korean TV show called Meeting You was filmed interacting with her dead daughter in VR.vv
Recently, for whatever reason, we’ve gotten away from actual hands-on review. This isn’t by design, it’s just part of the ebb and flow of how things come into the review desk. And most times, when I’ve got a shipment coming in, I know it’s on the way. This one was different – I had a box show up out of the blue (from another reviewer, as it turns out). Lo and behold, it was two different Gavox collections! After touching base with the brand, I got to the business of wearing the watches. Let’s give you that rundown of the Gavox Stellar collection.
Back at the end of 2018, we brought you word of the new Mido Multifort Chronometer which was the first time the Multifort lineup got to bring the Caliber 80 Si movement in. Well, some time has gone by, and now it’s time to dress up the Mido Multifort Chronometer in some new duds.
And they’ve got gifts for you! Ok, well, sure, you’ll still have to pay for them, but they do have four specific models to celebrate this milestone. All four of these models have a signature blue hue, but come with different looks and finishing to showcase what Grand Seiko’s artisans are capable of.
So, yesterday’s article focused on what we’ll call a “new” luxury material – carbon fiber. If you prefer your luxury to be more in the form of the “old”, well, friend, the Oris Carysfort Reef Limited Edition is going to catch your eye.
Hey, getting cool names assigned to watches can’t just be the domain of Rolex, right? I know, I’m a bit more Batman-oriented than most, but the color scheme on the recently-announced Panerai Luminor Marina Carbotech puts me in mind of Nightwing.
I’m late to the Apple Watch Series 5 game and I only bought mine last night. I’ve been putting off the purchase primarily because I’ve seen the 44mm on multiple wrists and the most common face, called Infograph, looked so odd. What was this abomination? Why were people using it? Why were there so many little circles?
I finally bit the bullet and ordered one and now I can unequivocally say that Apple’s watch face designs are awful.
It’s a watch lover’s nightmare: You’ve saved up large sums of money to buy your favorite stainless steel watch. You transfer the money. And then, 2.5 months of excuses later, a watch arrives. You take the watch to an Authorized Dealer, who tells you it’s not authentic. But the seller seemed reputable! He had a huge YouTube following! He ran Australia’s biggest sales board on Facebook!
This is exactly what happened in one transaction outlined on the RolexForums, a saga that seems to have shut down a prominent watch “blogger’s” online presence and cast the roles of buyers and reviewers into new light.
