Do you love green? I mean really wild dangerous looking insect green? Then step this way because Zodiac has the summer watch for you. The Super Sea Wolf Compression offers 200m of water resistance, a green silicone rubber strap, sapphire crystal, Swiss STP movement inside and a 40mm diameter. That’s a good compromise size for most. The downside is it retails at £1295, which is … Continue reading Summer Watches: Zodiac Sea Wolf Goes Green. Like Super Green
A purple dial says two things; one you’re a member of the British Royal Family, or secondly, you just love to stand out from the crowd. Sure every man and his sheepdog own a few blue dial watches, but purple? That’s 70s disco, 80s Prince album. Oris do this Holstein edition thing every June 1st, which is their birthday. This year, it’s been 119 years … Continue reading Happy Birthday Oris, Let The Purple Reign
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
Undone are one of the more adventurous brands in Singapre. Bold colours, interesting movie or comic book character tie-ups, plus a nice range in dive watches. The Aqua II has been around a couple of years and for $460 it offers 300m depth rating, Seiko power, plus a huge crown & protectors. It looks the part, in the more decorative Foxtrot PVD version, or plain … Continue reading Summer Watches: Undone Aqua is a Solid Choice
Hamilton has launched a 41mm case diameter version of its Khaki Frogman diver. The all-rounder timepiece has 300m of resistance and features the H10 80 hour automatic movement. Plus it comes in steel bracelet or rubber strap options. The RRP is £1120 either way, so we say get the bracelet and buy an aftermarket silicone strap if you do venture underwater. The new watch makes … Continue reading Hamilton Khaki Navy Frogman, Now in 41mm Case Size
We spotted a couple of nice fashion watches on the Sekonda website recently. First up, the Pacific Wave chrono has a quartz movement, the usual stopwatch functions, plus a rubber strap. 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
We have a lot of time for Swiss brand Formex at NWC magazine. Why? Simple really, they love creating beautiful watches, packed with features, that are Swiss made and yet affordable for mere mortals. Yes, a Vacheron Constantin Overseas, Hublot Big Bang or a Richard Mille is a superb thing, but it costs the same as a small house in the wilds of Grimsby. Formex … Continue reading Formex Reef Collective: Bespoke Bronze Beauty
