Your eyes do not deceive you – this is the second time, in fairly short succession, that we’re talking about the watch brand out of New York, Diefendorff. The last time around, John really took things on the New York angle. Our second look comes from the Second City, and will let you know what a Chicagoan thinks of the Diefendorff Corenelius 1776.
Breitling is announcing three new watches today that hearken back to the golden era of aviation, when planes were painted with nose art, and pilots sat strapped in behind large engines and propellers, spinning just feet in front of them. The Breitling Aviator 8 Curtiss Warhawk collection honors Curtiss-Wright, the aviation manufacturer.
Now that my watch obsession has made watch collection large enough to wear a different watch everyday of the week, I needed to keep my watches ready to go on a moments notice. After getting a six watch winder I was pretty happy since it does a great job. Watching my watches rotating around is really cool, but I could only see the dials. I want more.
Our last Afternoon Beer Break seemed rather well-received, so we’re back with another edition (and do foresee this continuing on). In the last shipment we had in from our unofficial official beer of WWR, Rogue, we had to varieties come in. We had the Rogue Outta Line, which we reviewed the other week; today, we’ll cover off on the other one that came in, the Rogue Batsquatch Hazy IPA.
It was all the way back in the golden days of 2014 when I first experienced the Tissot Visodate (you can see that here). I came away favorably impressed from the review, but if memory serves, it felt like the watch was just a touch thicker than I would have preferred. Well, fast-forward to 2019, and we’ve got the Tissot Heritage Visodate addressing that concern.
CuSn8 is the correct notation for the particular Bronze allow that Borealis is using on the Adraga, a new, limited edition explorer’s watch. There are four variations, limited to 25 pieces each. It’s an excellent interpretation of the field watch, and we hope you manage to pre-order one.
So, if you remember, late last year (see here) we had brought you word of a company from out west called TogetherMade that was creating some rather ingenious kits to get you and your little ones creating things together. You know, the sort of items that you might make when you were away at summer camp. Well, today is the first part of our review of some of the items that TogetherMade has on offer.
Ayyy! Fugetaboutit! I got yer egg cream right here! In the hand that is wearing my Diefendorff watch, a new $949 timepiece from a real Brooklyn watch house.
The watch, which comes in multiple styles, shines brightest when comes with a carbon fiber face and brightly polished steel case. Called the 1776 Design, the watch is slightly reminiscent of a Patek Nautilus but without the odd case design.
Well, there’s no official contract in place, nor will you see any manner of ads plastered all over the place here. But, suffice to say, Rogue has become the “unofficial” beer of WWR. They took a chance on our expanded coverage (fun, affordable stuff that we – and you – like), and we’ve gotten to experience some of their new releases. Today, we’ll have a look at the Rogue Outta Line IPA.
One of the oldest watches I’ve got in my collection (and the first one I spent more than $100 on) is my trusty ol’ G-Shock. The reason I bought that watch – blue dial aside – is because I was enamored by the solar-powered energy cell and the atomic clock time sync. I mean, what’s not to like about a watch that (more or less) never needs a new battery and is always accurate? It’s still a trusty timepiece (it’s become my yard work watch), but I always found the atomic sync to be finicky. Well, that’s where something like today’s watch, the Citizen Satellite Wave GPS Freedom, steps in.
