Tuseno First 42 in Rose Gold

Tusenö First 42 Review

Tusenö’s first watch, aptly called the “First 42”, is a polished and well-presented watch. It’s classic styling is contrasted radically against an unconventional Seiko meca-quartz movement. It’s made of all the right stuff to be great. Is it great for you? Have a look!

Grayton Automatic Watch - Grey Dial

Grayton Automatic Watch Review

The Grayton is a great choice for someone that wants an automatic watch without the uncertainty associated with using a movement from an unknown or less reputable manufacturer. The Seiko NH35A is a great movement that does the Grayton justice. The watch looks good and is comfortable to wear. It’s got the right stuff to be a good watch.

Ianuarius Richie Ref. JR100R Ivory White Dial (Black Background)

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.

Steinhart Ocean 1 Review

When we talk about affordable mechanical diving watches, we usually think of the usual suspects: the Seiko SKX007, the Orient Mako or the Orient Ray. Today, however, we’re taking a look at the Steinhart Ocean One Vintage Military, a ~$400 diving watch that offers a lot for a little.

Graf Zeppelin Dual Time 7640-1

Graf Zeppelin Dual Time 7640-1 Review

I really enjoy this watch in every objective and subjective way. I think it’s beautiful to look at, and I love how well incorporated the big date and dual time complications are. I also love the domed crystal, which is easily my favorite part of the watch. If you’ve got $300 to spend on a new watch, have a look at this one.
