MVMT are one of those fashion watch brands who are trying to up their game. We salute that aim. Maybe these new automatics are an indicator that things are improving. Fore sure, they don’t really offer great value at £309 apiece, with Miyota 8215 auto movements inside the 45.5mm wide steel case. The depth rating is 200m, which is resepctable of course, plus there’s lots … Continue reading MVMT Launches Basic Automatics: Worth £300?
It’s hard to go wrong with a 300m Seiko Prospex Great Blue `Samurai’ dive watch, all summer long. Big 44mm wide case, well just under, plus a sapphire crystal, beautiful dial and a fair price. So many Seiko models are now over a grand new and that makes this PADI edition a winner at £550 for us. It’s only got 200m of resistance, which is … Continue reading Summer Watches: Seiko Prospex PADI: Great Blue For You

Also has a sort of Omega homage thing going on with the wavy pattern on the dial. The blue and red bezel version is the one we like best, although you can choose a … Continue reading What’s New at Sekonda UK? Couple of Things
Sometimes all you need for underwater activity is a watch with a bold bright dial, 200m of water resistance and a rubber strap. Yeah, it’s true. Chrono buttons, fancy steel bracelets, GMT hands or triple date calendars are not really necessary on a dive/sports watch, they’re just nice accessories on top of a tool watch concept. So the new Torgoen T43 range, with Swiss Ronda … Continue reading Like a Chunky 44mm Dive Watch? Step This Way
The latest dive chronograph from Doxa is a handsome 42mm wide model, with a Swiss Sellita movement inside, a unidirectional bezel and 200m of resistance. Pretty enough in blue dial format, there are five other colour options coming soon. Expect more info when Watches and Wonders officially gets going later this week, but yellow, orange and turquoise dials are all on the menu. Nice little … Continue reading Doxa Sub 200 C-Graph II: Steady As She Goes
Seestern just sent us info on their latest watch and it is their first ever titanium case wristwatch too. The lightweight diver is powered by a Seiko NH series automatic and has a depth rating of 200m. It’s not visible on their AliExpress shop just yet, but pre-order should go live soon, with delivery due in April. We predict a £180-ish price tag. Same 39mm … Continue reading Seestern Titanium Homage: Pelagos Looks, Citizen Price Tag
The 1972 Automatic 50th Anniversary watch broke cover last year at Eza, but the Indie brand has just announced that a new green dial variant has been added to the range. Sellita SW200 movement inside, tropic leather strap, sapphire crystal, 200m of resistance and a 39.6mm wide case. There’s superluminova on the hands, markers and bezel numbers too. Numbered edition, with just 100 pieces being … Continue reading Eza Launches 50th Anniversary Automatic in Green
