How much more black can the Endeavour Perpetual Moon Concept Only Watch get? None more black. Why? Because the entire face is covered in “Vantablack®, a super-black coating that holds the world record as the darkest man-made substance.”
Grand Seiko is adding a new Spring Drive GMT to their collection. Is the new sparkly goodness something for you? Well, let me ask you: Do you like blue?
While my taste buds have definitely taken me in more of a bitter route with IPAs, it used to be that porters and stouts are where I went most commonly. I’ve started mixing things up a bit – have to keep those tastebuds on their figurative toes – and recently picked up a loose bottle at the shop of the Founders Breakfast Stout.
A few years ago (three-plus, actually) MoVas was very largely on my radar. They had a slew of fun releases, and I even got to go hands-on with one of their watches. For the past few years, it’s been radio silence. As it turns out, the brand had some difficulties, but they’re riding out of the storm now, and they’re bringing new watches with them. One of the first to be announced is the MoVas Diver 2 Big Crown.
Formex is, no doubt, a brand you’ve been seeing a lot on blogs and social media accounts. I can’t account for the upsurge in interest (good marketing team, is my guess) but we get to ride that wave of goodwill. We’ve had a few different Formex model on our pages before, and we’ve got some hands-on reviews we’re working on as well. The first of those is around one of their newest watches, the Formex Essence.
I know, I know – back-to-back days of Casio news. Well, I don’t control when they’re releasing things, particularly stuff that will be found interesting by you, our readers. They just recently hit up some updates to something that will look instantly familiar to many, the Casio Vintage.
Back in June, Casio was celebrating (along with other brands, one presumes) Nation Wristwatch Day. Along with that, there were a few watches that came in to the review desk. While the timing didn’t work to publish right on that day, we’re getting to them now. The first watch we’ll be taking a look at is the Casio Edifice EQB-501.
The folks at WatchFinder have been putting out some pretty interesting videos of late and their latest, a comparison of a Seiko Presage SRPA25K1 and a Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Tourbillon is a doozy. Basically it compares two watches that ostensibly have everything in common – they both have three hands and look almost the same – but are implicitly different.
Back at the start of the year, we talked to you about Mido celebrating it’s 60 year mark in existence, and that was marked with an anniversary watch. Well, it’s still the anniversary year, and there’s another watch that has been released to mark the occasion – the Mido Commander Big Date 60 year.
That’s right friends – it’s Friday afternoon, which means it’s time for another edition of the Afternoon Beer Break. I will admit, I’ve definitely been brining more than a few different IPAs to your attention. Today, we’re going to mix things up a bit, and check out a wheat ale. This one goes by the name of the 4 Hands Contact High.
