Frederique Constant Classics Business Timer Moonphase

In December, I had the unbelievable luxury of being able to pick any watch I wanted to photograph and review. So, I thought it’d be nice to check out another Frederique Constant and picked the FC-270SW4P5 Business Timer. This upscale quartz is packed with the usual trimmings (sappphire/etc.) and three subdials: day/date, and moonphase.

If your New Year’s resolution involves travel plans, you’re going to want a watch to come along for the ride.

Currently listed for just under $300 on Certified Watch Store ($278 actually), the Prospex Solar World Time is price competitive with most Citizens (in fact, it’s priced much better than most Citizen world time’s) and offers its wearer an assortment of functions/complications (including an alarm and chronograph function).

Timex Easy Reader 40th Anniversary Edition Review

The Easy Reader series from Timex is quite popular. According to SEMRush, the keyword “Timex easy reader” is searched nearly 2,000 times per month in the USA on its own– nevermind all the permutations of it. When considering Canada and the UK, as well as variations of “Timex Easy Reader”, monthly search volume climbs to north of 12,000 searches per month. Suffice to say, it’s a popular piece.

Why it took me so long to order one off of Amazon (this one is a gift for my father in law) I don’t know, but here we are: Timex Easy Reader on the wrist, and with great things to say. Let’s check it out.

The Nixon Sentry Leather, powered by what is likely a Miyota quartz movement, is a great looking watch that embraces its fashion status without making structural or mechanical compromises. It’s affordability and overall look make it a great daily wearer, though if you’re looking for something more mechanical, the Sentry isn’t for you. It’s a fashion watch, yes, but a pretty good one.

Ianuarius Richie Ref. JR001R Review

This not-exactly inexpensive quartz is made of the right stuff, with rose gold and sapphire giving it good looks and great durability. The Ronda 704 quartz movement isn’t commonly found on watches released from microbrands, either. It competes directly with the Corniche Heritage 40, and in my opinion, it gives the Corniche a solid run for its money. The JR001R is a well styled, well made dress watch with little in the way of drawbacks.
