The H Samuel summer watch is on right now and it is worth a look, especially if you like mainstream fashion brands, plus Seiko and Citizen. In fact I liked a Citizen chronograph so much I bought it. At £90 down from £299 originally, it was hard to resist. The Eco-Drive cell is typically good…

The King Seiko range got some new editions last week, and due to livin la vida loca in Blackpool for the Jubilee, your NWC scribe missed the update.

Citizen Pufferfish: 200m Dive Watch, £399. Nice Deal.

Latest dive watch from Citizen is the Promaster Pufferfish, well that’s what we’re calling it. Sure to become the general nickname for it, just like a Seiko Turtle. Nice white dial, 42mm case and 200m of resistance. We like the novelty air tank box too. Nice touch. Have to say £399 is very reasonable for…

Citizen Nighthawk: Get The MilSpec Look Every Day

Pure military watches can often be too basic, too functional, like say CWC models. Plain dials, big numbers, good water resistance.  Seiko do a similar thing with their Field watch, and if you want to splash out, you can buy a homage to the Seiko from IWC which costs £4500. Nice. But somethimes, it’s cool…
