Baltic has added a blue gilt model to their Aquascaphe dive range and it makes an interesting alternative to something like the Christopher Ward C65. A stunning deep blue, sunray effect dial, 39mm case width and a domed sapphire crystal all combine with some bright lume to make this a decent spec watch for £580. It’s a leisure dive/swim watch with 200m of resistance and … Continue reading Baltic Aquascaphe Blue Gilt; Decent Spec Diver, Affrodable Price
The word from Seiko as they launch a new GMT Prospex, which offers dive functionality with a little dress watch appeal blended in there too. Ice blue or the green dial? Hard to choose really. The ice blue one is £1600 though, some 200 notes more than the other two dial colours. Cheeky bit of price-walking eh? Seiko introduces a new movement in the long-trusted … Continue reading Seiko Prospex GMT; Dive Meets Dress and It’s a Winning Formula
Do you like building your own MOD watches? Well if so this new Certiga movement from Crafter Blue makes an interesting alternative. It’s based on the Seiko NH34 which is a mainstay of many watch MOD projects. You can choose standard auto or GMT model by the way. The tweaking looks like blue screws and a bespoke decorated rotor, otherwise it’s pretty similar to the … Continue reading Hey Watch MODDERS, Fancy a Juzzed Up Seiko NH34 Movement?
The C65 Sealander is one of the best value Swiss powered automatics on the watch market in our humble opinion. UK brand Christopher Ward has now added three limited edition dial colours to the range, which has a Sellita movement inside the 36mm wide case. A versatile dress watch for £635 stacks up well against most Swiss brand opposition, with the exception of Tissot, which … Continue reading Christopher Ward Sealanders: Ltd Edition Dial Colours
If you’ve won the lottery, inherited a fortune or just claimed your monthly expenses from the Houses of Parliament, then a Vacheron Constantin Overseas chronograph at £37,700 is a worthwhile investment. It’s a straight rival to a Rolex Daytona, Patek Grand Complications or perhaps a JLC Polaris, a true luxury watch, with an in-house movement (twin barrels btw) and that cachet of rarity too. Just … Continue reading Vacheron’s Overseas Chronograph Ltd Edition
The latest addition to the Ball range is the Roadmaster M Chronograph, which has that trademark gas tube lume, black, blue or white dials, ceramic bezel and a lockable chrono pusher, so you won’t accidentally start the stopwatch feature. It’s a 41mm wide case and sits pretty high at just over 14mm on the wrist. At this price we would expect more depth resistance than … Continue reading Ball Roadmaster M Chronograph: Solid Performer, But Worth £3900?
Deep Blue has launched a new Daylight Stealth Ops model. Yeah we know, the name sucks, but hey, this is a decent spec watch for $189. You get a black or blue dial, 44mm case width, Seiko auto movement, plus sapphire crystal and screwdown crown. Depth rating is an impressive 300m – see, now you’re starting to see beyond the cheesy paintball warrior name. It … Continue reading This is Amazing: 300m, Tritium Tube, Seiko Movt Spec For Under $200
Sometimes you just need a Tiffany blue dial watch that suits everyday wear, special days out or makes you feel good wearing it. Sure a Rolex Oyster might be nice, but this Island Watches Brookville ticks the right boxes at $349 too. Inside the 38mm case there’s a hi-beat Miyota auto movement, sapphire crystal on the front, see thru caseback, steel bracelet and 100m of … Continue reading Island Watches Brookville: Tiff Blue Vibe, Top Value Package
