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!

Nixon Sentry Leather A105 Photo Review

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.

Hamilton Pan-Europ: Then vs Now

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.
