Just a couple of days until the new Zelos Starfighter becomes available to buy and this watch will appeal to science fiction, astronomy and physics fans alike. With a relatively modest 41mm case it’s not too in-your-face, but the two dial finishes of Aventurine and Meteorite both catch the eye. At night you have lots of lume on the hands, bezel and chapter ring markers. … Continue reading Zelos Starfighter Is About To Launch
You have to hand it to ID watch brand in Geneva, they are walking the walk when it comes to recycling. Steel made from scrap collected in the Alps, packaging from green waste, plus recycled and refurbished watch movements. This is a circular economic project that’s setting new standards. The Circular S then has the right name, since it is using less carbon than the … Continue reading ID Are Recycling, Refurbishing and Refreshing The Swiss Watch
Davosa is one of those brands we keep forgetting about until we do a random browse for dive watches on eBay and there you are, at least two or three of them pop up. Swiss made, with 140 years of independent watchmaking heritage behind them, Davosa is an alternative to something like an Oris, Ball or a Fredrique Constant perhaps. Slightly left-field, but has its … Continue reading Davosa Ternos Ceramic GMT: Serious Rival To Ball or Oris?
Yep, a 38mm wide watch is considered small these days. When you have 40-42mm watches as the de facto standard, it’s nice to see slightly smaller watches making a comeback in 2022, and the 38mm diameter watch is definitely popular again. This Maen is just under 1000 euros, has an ETA movement, plus GMT feature and comes in black, white, reverse panda, plus a couple … Continue reading Maen Skymaster 38: Small Is Beautiful
Feynman is a Singapore brand keen on making mechanical/auto watches with a twist. The latest model on pre-order is the Fjord, which features a sandwich type dial, with a sort of Hampton Court maze effect. We love that teal green colour too. The second hand looks a bit like a squiggly sperm, but we will try not to dwell on that. Here’s some info from … Continue reading Feynman Fjord: ETA Power, Quirky Dial & Kinda Good
Gevril has launched the Lenox range, featuring a Swiss automatic movement, which has a kinda odd name; M39D6. Nope, never heard of it, but it looks nice via the see-thru caseback. Could be a modded Sellita/ETA 2824 but we just don’t know. That dished rotor looks very similar to the ETA 2824, which why we take a guess on that venerable base movement being the … Continue reading Gevril Launch Lenox Automatics
Audric has sent us info on their Strider watch. No, not a homage to the character from Lord of The Rings, but a very reasonably priced ETA powered watch, that has a slight similarity to the famous AP Royal Oak, from some angles. An anti-scratch coating on the case, 200m water resistance, plus a sapphire crystal see-thru caseback all add up to excellent value for … Continue reading Audric Strider: Swiss Quality, Indie Price
Raven watches has a new bronze case model on their website right now, which has an impressive spec; ETA 2824 movement, sapphire crystal and 300m of water resistance. It’s a great looker with the green dial option and sdistressed leather strap too – just saying. At $1100 it isn’t cheap and it has to be said there are similar 300m spec bronze case watches for … Continue reading Raven Trekker Bronze; Dive Ability & Vintage Looks
