You know me – I like solar watches, and when they get more complex, I either want a digital display or some way to lash it to my phone. For analog watches with Connectivity, the Casio Edifice line is a great way to go. Just recently, they announced a super-slim one, the Casio Edifice Slim Connected EQB1000D-1A. And wouldn’t you know it – we reviewed one! You can check that out over at Knapsack, and let us know what you think of this new slim profile. knapsack.news
Well, not literal bells and whistles, but you know what I mean. By now, most of us should be familiar with the Christopher Ward C65 Trident Diver SH21 – and if you aren’t, well, check our our take on the newer C65 Trident lineup here (though this is a GMT version). The divers keep the same clean lines, and the Christopher Ward C65 Trident Diver SH21 Limited Edition takes things in a decided upscale direction.
I’ll admit I’m enamored with wearables. My Oura ring is my constant companion that lets me know when I’ve walked enough and how well I’m sleeping. It tracks me but not in any scary way.
Amazon’s Echo Loop, a smart ring with two tiny microphones and a button to call for Alexa, is a different beast entirely. Billed as a tool to bring Alexa on the go, it seems like an awful use of microelectronics and always-on surveillance.
Fossil has very much been on a tear as of late. It’s been a mix of new releases and dips back into their extensive catalog, and this latest one is in the latter category. As with the other reissues, I can’t say as I recall seeing the Fossil Blue before, but I’m rather happy to see it now.
Breitling has created another aviator chrono, this time one that pays homage to the Mosquito, a wooden bomber flown by the British during World War II and called the fastest plane in the world for a decade.
It was way back (ok, a year ago) when Jeff went hands on with an Alpina Startimer. Well, they’ve not been resting on their laurels. No, those crafty folks over at Alpina have come up with a new addition to the line, giving what the modern audience wants in a rather vintage-look of a watch. That watch being, of course, the Alpina Startimer Pilot Heritage Chronograph.
We here at WWR are, well, guys. As such, we tend very much to focus on watches that interest us, and as such, watches for the women out there tend to get short shrift. Now, some of that is for good reason – just shrinking a watch down and throwing some hearts on it does not an interesting design make. Then you’ve got something like the Victorinox Alliance XS, and you can see what a watch designed specially for the smaller dimensions can be.
You remember Berd Vay’e, right? We wrote about them before, with the use of resins (and the like) along with reclaimed watch parts to create interesting objects with ties to the world of horology. Well, they’re back with a new creation, the Berd Vay’e Hallucination.
