LIV GX-Diver full lume dial


Sporting a completely lumed-out dial, an ETA automatic, 300 m of water resistance, and a 5-year warranty, there are a lot of things to like in the GX-Diver Full Lume. Let’s explore this after-hours superstar in more detail, shall we?

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.

René Mouris Mythique dial


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


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.
