The limited edition 1970 by Dan Henry is a surprising piece. While it has some minor quality control items (I must stress that they are minor), the rest of the watch is composed and well executed. I’m a big fan of its looks, and I love how the theme has touched every part of the watch in a subtle, classy way. It’s a stand-out piece, especially when you consider its $250 price tag. This is as great watch that’s worth your consideration.Read More
It may not be a real “dive watch”, but the Mako Rubber definitely looks the part. With 200m of water resistance, it can get plenty wet and look great doing it. Otherwise, the Mako is an affordable and capable watch, powered by a house-made automatic movement, and looks that match. I’m a big fan.Read More
The Grayton is a great choice for someone that wants an automatic watch without the uncertainty associated with using a movement from an unknown or less reputable manufacturer. The Seiko NH35A is a great movement that does the Grayton justice. The watch looks good and is comfortable to wear. It’s got the right stuff to be a good watch.Read More
I’m currently sitting in my hotel room at the Linq Hotel in Las Vegas, and the SNKM97 is the perfect companion. It looks totally at home on the strip, and its green and gold color scheme practically screams “high roller”. While this budget timepiece may not really be a high roller, it looks the part and feels great on the wrist. Check it out!Read More
When we talk about affordable mechanical diving watches, we usually think of the usual suspects: the Seiko SKX007, the Orient Mako or the Orient Ray. Today, however, we’re taking a look at the Steinhart Ocean One Vintage Military, a ~$400 diving watch that offers a lot for a little.Read More
The SNKN01 is a great looking watch that is powered by the legendary 7S26 automatic movement. For someone looking for an affordable automatic, the SNKN01 – and the Recraft series of watches – offer a lot of value. I’ve seen this watch for as low as $110 on Amazon, and at that price it’s an obvious choice. It doesn’t get much better than that.Read More
This Bulova has as lot of things going for it. First, it’s a great looking open heart that isn’t over styled; It’s competitively priced, clocking in somewhere around $300 – $350; it’s built well, like every other Bulova I’ve reviewed to date. It’s a great watch and has earned a great recommendation from me. Check it out!Read More
The Alpinist came as a true shock: a great looking, well-spec’d automatic from a world-class manufacturer. It’s comfortable to wear, durable, reliable, and accurate. In the USA and Canada, it’s also an uncommon watch to find. The best part of all of this is its price, coming in well under $400. Great work, Seiko.Read More
If the Bambino is the proverbial bulls eye, the Symphony lands just short of the inner circle. It’s powered by the same Caliber 48743 automatic that Orient fits in the Bambino, and it’s built just as well, but it doesn’t quite hit the mark aesthetically. Because of this, it always seems to sit in its better-looking cousins shadow. It’s not a bad watch by any technical means, just make sure you’ve checked the Bambino out before you pull the trigger on the Symphony.Read More
The P2/01 is definitely a statement watch, but wow- what a statement it makes! I’ve never seen a watch get people interested in it like this SEVENFRIDAY does. Even if they aren’t “watch people”, almost everyone who sees the P2/01 thinks that it’s good looking. At 47mm it’s among the largest I’ve worn, but I don’t think that’d keep me from buying it. It’s a very cool watch all around.Read More
