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?
We had a heads up from Seestern earlier today and their lightweight titanium case divers are now on sale. Featuring a Seiko NH series auto movement they have a 39mm case diameter, sapphire crystal, lots of lume and a 200m water resistance rating. At $279 apiece they are slightly more expensive than your average Ali Express dive watch, but you do get the titanium bracelet … Continue reading Titanium Case Seesterns Now On Sale
I mean just look at the movement, beautifully presented via the see-thru caseback on the new Urban Field model. Yes, it’s a bought in Sellita SW210 series movement, but the Yema decoration really adds a classic touch; blue screw heads and Yema script on the bridgework, plus a smattering of synthetic rubies. Hypnotic to look at and a perfect contrast to the functional crosshair style … Continue reading Yema Just Built a Modern Classic, a Field of Dreams
Once upon a time, Ali Express automatic watches were cheap and cheerful. Indeed we bought a few here at NWC to review. Some were nice, others had some issues. But you can’ deny that overall the quality needed to be improved. Well, now it is happening, same deal as Chinese motorcycles basically, they get better and you pay more. So this latest Tudor homage from … Continue reading Seestern/Sugess Tudor Homage: Worth $200?
We love trawling Ali Express for the homage watches and the Pagani tribute to the MoonSwatch is one of our faves; great dial colours, nice detailing work on the bezels and the Seiko VK series meca-quartz movement inside, which is a proven reliable unit. Initially Pagani were cheeky asking about £120-£140, depending on where you bought them from, indeed Amazon seem to be pricing them … Continue reading Pagani Moon Watch Homage: Price Drops on Benyar Site
The Bulova Precisionist is one of those watches that sort of mashes up a bit of G-Shock functionality, dive watch ability, plus a bit of dress watch styling and the result is quite pleasing. It’s a big watch at 46.5mm across, plus that chunky winding crown, so if you have a small wrist, it’s probably not for you. It’s also got diamonds set as markers … Continue reading Bulova Precisionist: Rose Gold Tone Edition
We love Ali Express here at NWC mag, loads of brands like Pagani, Paulareis, Sugess and more selling great value watches. But there are plenty of traders selling replaica watches and we are no fans of fake Swiss watches, but we get the point; some of us cannot afford 3K for the real thing. So you expect a fake Breitling to be a bit pants, … Continue reading A Breitling Endurance Homage for £19, How Rubbish Can It Be?
Most automatic wristwatches strat at about £300. Yes, you can buy no end of automatics from Ali Express for under £100, but if you want a mainstream movement like a Seiko, Miyota or ETA/Sellita then you’ll know that you have to pay a bit more. Plus the watch that retails for about £300 or more is generally better finished than your online homage job. So … Continue reading Forge & Foster Nautic Automatic is Fair Value
