D1 Milano Atlas Dial Macro Shot

[On the Wrist] D1 Milano Atlas Automatic

The Atlas is a fine looking watch, albeit one that lacks much in terms of personality. It’s not a bad watch – far from it, in fact – but it doesn’t bring anything new or exciting to the table. At $625, the Atlas is also priced on the high-side considering the NH35 movement used.

Mitch Mason Chronicle Military Field Watch

[Hands-On] Mitch Mason Chronicle Military Field Watch

The Chronicle by Mitch Mason is the first in what I hope is a series of successful watch launches rom this Signapore-based microbrand.

If you’re looking for a versatile and sensible everyday wastch, the Chronicle fits the bill nicely.

René Mouris Mythique dial

[UP CLOSE & PERSONAL] René Mouris MYTHIQUE

The Mythique is an interesting watch. Well made and fancily constructed, it’s clearly focused more on fashion than on function, but if that’s what you’re seeking, the Mythique may well be the addition to the wrist you’re looking for.

MHD SA2 Steel Dial Macro

MHD SA2 REVIEW

The SA2 collection, penned by Matthew Humphries, formerly the Chief Designer of Morgan Motor Company and someone with a resume centered around the auto (he is also the “MH” in MHD), is a watch that I love to show to people. It’s a great example of what makes a mechanical watch a genuine connection with time.

Orion Hellcat Dial

Orion Watches “Hellcat” Review

The Hellcat is Orion Watches fifth model and is a sensibly-sized Pilots watch. Powered by a Miyota 9015 automatic and sporting a gorgeous sunburst burgundy dial, the Hellcat is an awesome addition to anyone’s wrist.

Kronhauser Automatik Silver-Opaline

Kronhauser Automatik Review

Sensible sizing and well-executed design come together in the Automatik collection from Kronhauser, which proves that nailing the basics is still a winning formula when it comes to microbrand watch design.

Beacon Watches Pathfinder with blue dial

Review: Beacon Watch Co. Pathfinder

This version of the Longitude is big, bold, and blue. It’s a 42mm dress watch that ships with an attractive open heart and guilloche dial on blue-dyed crocodile-grain leather. It is a very attractive piece, albeit on the busy side of design, and is guaranteed to grab the attention of anyone in its vicinity.

D1 Milano Skeleton - SLBJ03

Worn & Reviewed: D1 Milano Skeleton

D1 Milano is an Italian microbrand that is fashion-focused. The Skeleton, a 41.5mm dress watch, is a fine example of an affordable automatic watch with a gorgeous skeleton dial.

Eoniq Alster Watch - Dial

Review: Eoniq Alster Automatic

If you fancy yourself a watch designer but lack the technical or artistic ability to do so, you’ll be happy to know that there are plenty of companies out there that will let you “design” your own watch from the comfort of your web browser. Eoniq is one such company, and in the “design your own watch” niche, they’re also the brand that appeals to me the most.

Eoniq let me build whatever I wanted, and what I wanted was a racey three-hand watch with a small seconds subdial. I received it a few weeks ago, so let’s check it out!

Thomas Earnshaw Lady Australis

Reviewed: Thomas Earnshaw Lady Australis

The Lady Australis is a bedazzled 36mm automatic that features feminine accents that are eye-catching but not quite over the top. It’s an aesthetic hit (according to the ladies in my life that have seen it) thanks to the generous amount of jewels and the open heart display that stands prominently on the mother of pearl dial.

It’s been a long time since I last had a bejeweled ladies watch here on WYCA. The most recent is the Kenneth Cole KC2508, which I reviewed nearly five years ago. Thankfully, the Earnshaw is a better piece. Let’s take a closer look.
