Ten Watches To Wear While Actually Being Active

March 5, 2018

There is perhaps no greater disservice that can be done to a perfectly capable watch, than to force it to live a life of sad monotony as it ticks and hums away sheltered beneath the safety of a shirt cuff. After all, we see it year after year – brands bragging about absurd water-resistance specs, blast-proof […]

Five of those eight versions are limited-editions, a few limited to 300 pieces and a few to 700.

Seiko Introduces Three ‘Black Series’ Prospex Limited Edition Dive Watches

March 5, 2018

Seiko just quietly announced three new limited edition “Black Series” Prospex dive watches, set to be released sometime in the first quarter of 2018. It’s pretty hard to screw up redoing existing pieces in black with a vintage design sense, and these three Prospex watches keep that trope alive. Aggressive, legible, and handsome, the black dials, tan […]

Aesthetically, this watch certainly isn’t boring. Like a proper dive watch, the unidirectional bezel insert includes the first 15-minutes in grey rather than black, while the mark really line up with the indices — something you’d be surprised does not occur as often as it should. The hobnail screw-down crown with realistically sized crown guards […]

Like a proper dive watch, the unidirectional bezel insert includes the first 15-minutes in grey instead of black, although the mark actually line up with the indices — something you’d be surprised doesn’t happen as frequently as it should. The hobnail screw-down crown with virtually sized crown guards […]

March 5, 2018

A field watch may not enjoy the same celebrated status as dive watches in general, and I am yet to figure out why that is. Field watches or “infantry watches” are more often than not just as capable as their diver’s counterparts: they have the same impressive water resistance, the same focus on excellent legibility, […]

Another large difference between the new Grand Seiko Hi-Beat 36000 GMT SBGJ227 along with the 2014 model is that, following Grand Seiko’s supposed secession from Seiko this year (in fact, a subtle rebranding), the GS Grand Seiko emblem alone today marks the top spot on the dial of all Grand Seiko watches. Here, too, the […]
