Something functional, unshowy and containing lots of lume so that night time timekeeping was available at a glance. Sure, not everyone is a night shift worker, badger den watcher, or serves in the military, but there are lots of reasons why you want a rugged … Continue reading Bremont Broadsword Recon: Dirty Deeds Done Good

MHD Supercar: Dashboard Delight

The MHD Supercar is a quirky design, with its case having a couple of gaps in each side, with a knurled edge visible in each of them.

New Marloe Sceptre is Kinda Curious

NWC mag are big fans of the Marloe Astro, the square case watch that’s assembled in Scotland. Sharp looks, nice spec for the price. This new Sceptre however is one where the jury is still out at the pub. On the upside a 200m resistance dive watch with an auto movement at £349 is good value, excellent in these inflationary times. But the Miyota movement … Continue reading New Marloe Sceptre is Kinda Curious
