We Love Taking Photos of Watches
There’s something about the way a polished bezel and a guilloche dial play with light that makes watch photogaphy interesting. Our photo stream is where we post galleries whenever we do photo shoots and side by sides. You can also see our media on our Instagram profile.
- Nikon D3200
- Nikon 40mm macro
- Tamron 90mm macro
- Nikon P530 hand-held
Check Out Our Galleries!
Every now and then we’ll do a photo stream shoot, where we take some high-res shots specifically to showcase a watch. It isn’t a review so much as it’s a celebration of what makes a watch look and feel great. We hope you enjoy!

Justin Ng, owner of Gem by Carati and frequent WYCA benefactor, got in touch and asked if I was ready to check out another limited edition Hamilton. Who could say no to a line like that?
He sent me over the newish Intra-Matic 68, a limited-edition auto chrono powered by Hamilton’s H-31 automatic. Only 1968 of these were built, and of those, only 20 made their way to Canada. With that in mind, let’s check out this modern take on a vintage greatest hit.read more
Check out our in-depth photoshoot and hands-on impression of the Jean Bellecour Faubourg. This steel on black ladies watch showcases vintage-inspired design, with a low-key cushion-case design and chrome hands and markers. Have a look!read more
Willis Judd is a microbrand that is just finishing up their already-funded Kickstarter campaign. At 45mm, this carbon fiber beauty is oversized but definitely not overdone. If you’re looking for an affordable new quartz watch and want something different from what else is out there, this Willis Judd may just be the watch you’re looking for.read more
The same great style and design of the Heritage 40, now appropriately sized for a woman’s wrist! If you’re looking for a great ladies-sized dress watch, the Corniche Heritage 36 might be the watch for you!read more
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.read more
This Bulova is a little too big for my wrist so I thought I’d spend a bit more time showing off its detail & build using macro photography. It’s a great watch so long as you’ve got the wrists for it.read more
Three Hamilton’s behind the lens today: the Jazzmaster Regulator, Jazzmaster Auto Chrono, & Jazzmaster Open Heart. These three Hammy’s all feature rose gold accents and automatic movements. Photo time? I think so!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
A great gift idea! We check out the Classic 36mm & Classic 40mm by Bonvier. For under $350 you & your spouse can sport matching classy timepieces. Check it out!read more
In the year and a half since I posted the review it’s been seen tens of thousands of times. Dozens of people have e-mailed me asking about it, with many sending me a note to describe their own love affair with the Weekender. A lot of people like the Weekender.read more
As of today WYCA has over 70 reviews on it, with all but two being penned by myself. With more experience in the world of watches, and with considerably more experience with watch photography, I decided to rebuy the SNK809 and reassess my review.read more
I recently reviewed the Orient Bambino V2 and Symphony and found both to be mechanically and structurally excellent. Orient makes some great affordable watches, that’s for sure. Check out the Bambino and Symphony in these pics 🙂read more
After going to a local watch meet I met doncommando, who agreed to loan me his vintage Pan-Europ for a while so I could snap some photos. Just a couple of weeks later, Justin at Gem by Carati loaned me a brand-new Pan-Europ Auto Chrono for a few days. I thought this was the ideal time to get some side-by-side shots of the vintage Pan-Europ and its modern re-imagining.read more
Our friends at Gem by Carati lent us a few Hamilton’s & Tissot’s to snap some photos of, so snap away we did! In this gallery: the Hamiton Jazzmaster Open Heart, Hamilton Khaki Field, and Tissot Le Locle.read more
Melissa wanted a weekender so we made that happen. We grabbed a Timex Weekender Reversible (model: TW2P65300GP) and took a few photos of it with its bigger brother, the Weekender Chronograph. Snazzy little piece for $40 🙂read more
We got a couple of Stuhrling Original skeleton’s – the Delphi Acheron and Legacy Executive – and snapped a pic. 🙂read more
The very attractive Heritage Edition from Hastings & Co. hit my desk yesterday. Its white and rose gold combination looks great against the brown crocodile leather.
I’ve got it for another five days- I’ll be posting first impressions tomorrow, with my review early next week.read more
Two very attractive quartz pieces on my desk today: the Skagen Ancher, a minimalist and unmistakenly Danish take on everyday timekeeping; the Skagen Holst, a multifunction piece featuring day/date dials at 12 and 6 o’clock, respectively.read more
