How do you open a Rolex, on the HourTime Show

In this episode of the HourTime podcast we talk about different methods for opening a watch, from a ball to other extreme madness.

Do not try this at home

Octon Watch Review – aka Bamford for the masses

0

As you can no doubt imagine, we get all manner of unsolicited emails here at WWR. Some of it is pure junk mail (nope, not going to cover your whack-a-doodle makeup project), some of it just more of the same ol (hooray, a minimal watch that cuts out the middle man!) and then there are gems that come through. Octon Watches came out of nowhere, and once I saw that day-glo fluorescent paint on the dials, I was sold. So, yup, I got to spend some time with the simply-named Octon Watch.

Afternoon Beer Break: New Belgium Voodoo Ranger Liquid Paradise IPA

0

When it comes to beers from New Belgium, most are probably familiar with their Fat Tire beer. While that’s good, I’ve become partial to what they’ve been spinning up with their Voodoo Ranger series. The Atomic Pumpkin is about my favorite pumpkin beer (hot pepper for the win), and I’ve yet to run across one that I’ve not liked. For summertime, they’ve introduced a new one, the Voodoo Ranger Liquid Paradise IPA.

Beware the influencers

What is an influencer? Is it a WWR writer? A lady who wears a bikini in every Instagram shot? A guy who leans against cars and shows off his abs?

Maybe it’s none of those. And maybe that’s fine.

It’s the new old school with the Zodiac Super Sea Wolf 53 Compression

1

There is no doubt that, for me, the Zodiac Aerospace GMT was the clear star of the BaselWorld show this year. In fact, it was for a great many people, as evidenced by how quickly it sold out. IE, no loaners available for us media types to ogle over in person. Such is life of a popular model, I suppose. However, no sour grapes here, because we instead got to spend some time with another vintage-look watch from the brand, the Zodiac Super Sea Wolf 53 Compression.

Hands on with the Phoibos Great Wall 500M

0

This is now my third review on the Phoibos watch brand, previously having looked at their Ocean Master and Sentinel watches. Both were very nice, well made watches. Lately, I was able to get my hands on their newest model, the Great Wall. That would be referring to the Great Wall of China and as you read on you can see why.

Breaking a sweat with the Polar Vantage M

1

When it comes to watches, people tend to think of them in the traditional form (be they quartz or mechanical), or go to the other end of the spectrum with full-on “smart” watches of the Apple and Android varieties. Sure, those get some fitness tracking in, but it’s more an afterthought. What about a watch that is purpose-built for that task? There are options out there, but the stuff from Polar has quickly become some of my favorites, and my now-constant gym companion. Lately, I’ve been spending time with a more recent release, the Polar Vantage M.

Exploring the Grayton Diplomat

0

It was just about a year and a half ago when we brought you a hands-on review of our first experience with Grayton, a review of the Grayton Radiance. Today, we don’t have a review, but I did want to cover off on one of their newer watches, the Grayton Diplomat.

How to hack a cheap Casio into a real dive watch

1

The Casio F-91W is, famously, the only watch worn by Osama and Obama. As a beater it can’t be beat an, as David Tinarenco writes, it’s even better if you put it on a NATO strap. But what about that pesky water resistance?
