Crafter Blue Bon Voyage; Classic Chrono Style for $299

This classic styled Bon Voyage model from Crafter Blue is a nice 70s style watch, with a Seiko meca-quartz VK series movement inside the 42mm case. It has the usual sapphire crystal, but the dial is enamelled, not just printed on, which is a beautiful old school touch. Most 19th century pocket watches had enamel…

Refreshed: Storm Remi Lazer Jump Hour

Storm has refreshed its Remi Lazer jump hour model, with a square dial rather than the round case model they’ve had on the go for a few years now. The new design gives the Remi an 80s vibe, very arcade game and the jump hour feature is something that watch lovers will know from 1970s…
