We have a flurry of new watch releases to start the week, first up is Timex.
The Waterbury GMT is a classic 39mm all-rounder watch, with a quartz movement and mineral crystal. It now gains a grey dial option, alongside the blue and white dial variants. Same price at $199.
There are endless variations on the G-Shock theme, with prices starting at the affordable end and rising to insane collector level for the blingy models. The new Naughty Noise and Blue & White Pottery Series retail from £119 which is just above the typical fashion watch price point of about £70-£90.
Actually the Pottery watch design is growing on us, with its Staffordshire swirls and classic blue/white colour scheme. It is different.
The spec is decent too; 200m resistance, button lighting, countdown, stop watch, mineral crystal etc. More here.
The Tactical Frog VS75 Solar Chronograph is a good looking alternative to many Indie brand chronos out there. It has the ubiquitous Seiko/Pulsar VS75 movement inside, which is undeniably durable, so you’ll get years of wear from this one.
Plenty of dial colour options too; Tiffany blue, brown, snowflake creamy-white, black, even brown.
Launch price is $229 which is a bit tasty in our view. Here’s the tech spec from the Heimdallr website;
Movement: Solar-powered Seiko VS75 movenent ( quartz movement)
Case material: 316L stainless steel
Glass: Japanese Fuji raw Sapphire Crystal, which is durable, scratch-resistant and anti-scratch. At the same time, it adopts a non-reflective blue-plated inner film 4-layer technology to make the mirror more transparent and easier to read.
