Full metal jacket with a touch of gold – it’s the Casio Edifice ECB900DB-1C

0

As I mentioned in the recent review over at Knapsack, I feel like I’ve seen a LOT of the Casio Edifice catalog, and they keep introducing variations in the lineup. In other words, if you don’t like what you see here, check out what else they have, and they may have a color combo or style that you prefer. Today, we’ll be talking about the black-and-gold Casio Edifice ECB900DB-1C.

The Withings Scanwatch can detect sleep apnea, arrhythmia

As a consummate snorer I’ve always wondered how much I’m killing myself/annoying my wife at night. I found out by going to a doctor but the folks at Withings might have a better way.

Monday blues with the Llarsen Nor Chronograph

0

I will be the first to admit that, while chronographs are not for me, they are certainly popular. Know what else is popular? Scandinavian minimalist design, so that is how we ended up with a Llarsen Nor Chronograph loaner winging it’s way in from Denmark.

Reviewing a hit of 2019 – the Oris Big Crown ProPilot X Calibre 115

1

Here at WWR, we tend to focus on the more affordable watches that are out there. That means we’re used to looking at and handling watches that you see on banner ads (in your web browser) – but today’s watch is one you see on literal billboards by the freeway (at least, I do). Those are higher-end watches, but this one is something special, so when I had the opportunity offered to get a loaner of the Oris Big Crown ProPilot X Calibre 115 in for a few days, I leapt at the chance.

The Oris Big Crown Pointer Date goes bronze

0

I’m not a bronze watch guy. Bronze looks like gold and, historically, bronze pieces discolor quickly and rarely look good a few years into regular wear. That’s before I met Oris’ answer to the bronze watch craze, the Big Crown Pointer Date, a 40mm piece that could make me appreciate bronze anew.

Just got a new watch? How about a new repair kit?

0

Odds are, if you’re reading this site, you recently got a new watch. Or a new used watch. Or are planning to get one soon. Or maybe you have a number of watches kicking around already. Whatever the case, you’ll be wanting to do some sort of maintenance. What are the tools you use? Yes, you could search out on Amazon for the cheapest options, or you could go high-end watch maker quality. What about something that splits the difference?

Closed for a few more days, #watchfam

Just as with last week, we’re taking another few day break so you can get ready for your parties (and recover from said parties). We’ll be back to our usual foolishness on January 2nd – see you then!

Back from the pyre, it’s the Tempest Viking

To borrow the phrasing from a meme – Tempest, there’s a name I’ve not heard in a long time. We had a lot of Tempest watches on the pages here, and they were the first to get the forged carbon cases in at sub-$1000 pricepoints. Well, we got word that the flagship Tempest Viking was back and available to order (until it’s gone forever), and wanted to let you know.

Closing out soon on Indiegogo, it’s the Ciga Design Z-Series

0

These days, if you’re launching a watch on a crowd-funding site, and you’re not a particularly established brand, you need to be doing something special to get people to take notice. What if I told you that there was a watch made of titanium and sapphire, features (prominently) a Seagull movement, and is offering it all at a super affordable price? I’m guessing I’ve got your attention. Now turn that attention to the Ciga Design Z-Series.

To space and the sea with Douglas Skindiver WT Automatic

2019 was definitely the year of the “space” watch, with many a brand coming out with a piece to commemorate the 50-year anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission putting humans on the moon for the first time. One of the latest (and I suppose, THE latest since 2019 is closing out) are the Wolbrook Skindiver watches, now funding over on Kickstarter. We recently had some time with a prototype, and have our thoughts for you.
