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
The Citizen Skyhawk Blue Angels is a full-on tool watch that seems to be able to do anything. It’s atomic-synced time is the standard that I set all my other watches to, and it feels tough enough to withstand a bomb blast. If your watch needs to do everything, the Skyhawk Blue Angels is a great choice. I’m a big fan.Read More
The Seiko Flightmaster is a genuinely useful watch. The chronograph and date display are standard complications, but the integration of a slide-rule is what gives the Flightmaster its utility. It’s made well and looks good (in my opinion). There isn’t anything I dislike: the Flightmaster is a good watch overall.Read More
Ahh yes, the Casio F-91W. The most inexpensive watch on WYCA (as of today), and one of my favorites. I decided to do a deep dive into the history of this watch and to learn more about what makes this little digital great.Read More
I really enjoy this watch in every objective and subjective way. I think it’s beautiful to look at, and I love how well incorporated the big date and dual time complications are. I also love the domed crystal, which is easily my favorite part of the watch. If you’ve got $300 to spend on a new watch, have a look at this one.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 two-handed dial is unique and presented beautifully, as is the rose gold case and the laser-etched backplate. In every respect, the Heritage 40 demonstrates the care that went into its design and build. Priced alongside comparable quartz watches from Swiss and Japanese watchmakers, the Heritage 40 absolutely deserves your consideration if you’re wanting a dress watch that’s different but still classic.Read More
The Accutron II Alpha is a unique watch. Already rare to see a skeletonized dial on a quartz timepiece, Bulova takes it even further with a distinctive case to match. This version is arguably the youngest, with its black on black color scheme managing to be both quieter and louder than some of the more conventionally-styled versions. Regardless, it’s an excellent watch and a definite conversation piece. Recommended.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
Orient hit the nail on the head with the Bambino V2. This is a great looking watch, and of the three versions of the Bambino, I think that the V2 is the best looking. The quality of its build is evident all over, with no corners cut in its construction. Overall, the Bambino is an excellent watch. I recommend it.Read More
In my mind, the Tissot T-Complication Squelette sets the standard for how affordable skeleton watches should be done. Its dramatic design and consistent attention to detail create something that captures the interest of anyone – be they a “watch person” or not. More than good looks, it is an example of Swiss watch making at its best. Of all the watches I’ve reviewed to date, this one is my favorite.Read More
I’ll stop rating Hamilton’s so high when Hamilton stops making watches this good. The modern Pan-Europ is every bit the homage is strives to be, while simultaneously having its own charms and soul.Read More
