Rado is a brand that, frankly, that suffers the burden of not being on many people’s radars, as far as I can tell. They’ve got an interesting lineup, particularly when you hone in on their use of ceramics. Not just bezel inserts, nossir, it’s the whole watch, bracelet included! While recent releases have been round, this week’s announcement has them giving some love and attention to the Rado True Square collection.
While we’ve reviewed a number of different Oris watches over the years, but I think I’ve settled into my favorite of the bunch coming from their aviation-oriented ProPilot lineup. While I find myself partial to the GMT-equipped one (reviewed here), there is very much an argument to be made for the simpler Oris Big Crown ProPilot Big Date.
At this point in time, you are no doubt familiar with the Oris Divers 65 lineup. You may own one, have a friend that has one, or you’ve seen reviews on the line (such as this one from Victor). I last looked at one almost three years ago (here), but when the Oris X Momotaro version came up for a review loaner, I was intrigued.
I cannot say that I’ve ever seen Mt. Iwate, let alone a sunrise washing over it. However, for their 60th annivesary, Grand Seiko has released a watch – the SBGR321 – that pulls inspiration from that early-morning scene.
That’s right – when I saw the word of this new release from Zenith, that Michael Jackson tune is what immediately came to mind. Then again, that’s a message that these watches aren’t coming anywhere near. It just so happens that the Zenith Defy 21 and Defy Classic Black & White seamlessly combine the two hues.
Hey, do you guys remember Vincero? We wrote about their marble watches (in a hands-on review, here) almost six years ago. Well, they’re still making watches, and recently introduced two limited-edition versions of the marble automatic to celebrate hitting that six-year mark.
We here at WWR are big fans of tritium in watches, and Ball has been doing it that up on their dials for ages. Within their lineup, I’ve got specific things that I like (and like less), but anytime there’s a cyclops showing up on the crystal, I like to take a closer look. As luck would have it, two of the recently-released Ball Roadmaster Archangel models have that precise feature.
Here in the States, it’s a long holiday weekend known as Labor Day Weekend. Â Rather than try to throw some half-baked articles at you, I decided instead to give you the gift of time. In other words, we’re taking a break for the weekend, and we’ll be back to full speed on Tuesday. In the meantime? Have a happy Labor Day.
