Magrette is a brand that I will freely admit I have a soft spot for. The Magrette Regattare 2011 was my first automatic watch, and since then, I have reviewed a number of the watches that have come from the New Zealand brand. Things have been quiet for awhile, but now they are back with a big splash. Introducing the Magrette Moana Pacific Waterman GMT.
We’ve reviewed a number of rings here on WWR, and there’s a group of makers that I’ve started following a little more closely. Interestingly enough, they tend to collaborate together as well on projects, and that led me to an introduction to Patrick Adair (great name, in my book). Well, long story short, we were able to get one of his Stardust rings in for review, and it is quite out of this world.
Boldr’s latest Expedition line is one of the best tool watches – basic, rugged watches that will last you decades – on the market. Lumed to within an inch of its life, encased in a beautiful steel case, and eminently wearable, Boldr has created a new classic.
You know me – I like my GMT watches, and I seem to have a thing for them coming from smaller countries, like Sweden and Iceland. Well, JS Watch Co seems to be hitting me on that particular itch, along with serving things up in a very dress-watch look in the form of the JS Watch Co Vinland GMT.
Sometimes when we look at a watch line, we see elements from one that we’d like to see in another one – say, putting one dial into a different case and bezel configuration. With the Kustom Watch, that’s precisely what you’ll be able to do.
You know what time of year it is – it’s time to start thinking about putting on some additional layers when you go outside (at least, in the northern hemisphere). That means we’ll be seeing all sorts of “puffy” jackets and vests showing up. But the Zero Down is a puffy vest unlike any you’ve seen.
Breitling has a Surf Squad, a team of world-reknowned surfers who do pretty cool stuff, like ocean conservancy, or just get together for Breitling summits to surf waves. On the Squad is Kelly Slater, co-founder of Outerknown, an apparel company. It only makes sense that the two would partner on something watch-related, since one of the world’s great watch brands is working with the world’s greatest surfer.
This is my second review for Dwiss. I previously reviewed the Dwiss RS1-BL back in November of 2018. At that time they also had the RC1 model, which I was also interested in. Dwiss just came out with a new variation of the RC1 with a black dial. I was able to get a hold of one, and so far so good. Check out this new watch, and at the end of this review I will tell you how you can help Dwiss come up with their next model by joining the Club.
