One of the nice things about being an independent reviewer is that you get to look at a lot of smaller brands that would otherwise slip under the radar. MAALS is one such brand. Earlier in the year I covered their first watch, the Jump...
  It seems like there’s no end of variants when it comes to Christopher Ward’s popular Trident dive watches. The brand offers nearly countless versions of dive watch in both modern and vintage inspired designs. But there’s one Trident model which I think has flown...
  Have you ever wondered what a vintage watch would be like if it was built today? Well that pretty much sums up Baltic’s Aquascaphe. As the name implies, it’s inspired by the Blancpain Bathyscaphe, with Baltic applying their own aesthetic twist to the classic...
  I think it’s safe to say that most watch collectors have owned a “field watch” at some point. They’re one of the key styles that continue to endure long after their creation. Of course, a big part of this is that anything with a...
  If you’re in to watches in any serious sort of way, it’s pretty much guaranteed that you’ll know of the Seiko SKX. Hell, a fair chunk of you reading this will probably have owned one at some point. It’s probably Seiko’s most iconic watch,...

  For some strange reason, I don’t currently own a chronograph. Despite the vast quantity of great pieces out there, none of them have really grabbed me. That is, until now. Last year I attended the WatchIt! Watch Fair, and this was my introduction to...
  Would you believe that until now, I’ve never owned a Seiko? Not even an SKX or a Cocktail Time. I can’t really explain it, but there’s always been something that’s stopped me pulling the trigger. Well now that’s obviously changed, because I’ve just gone...
As someone who regularly reviews watches, I’ve got to admit that after a while things can start to blur into one. For example, I’ve lost track of how many watches I’ve reviewed that have a domed sapphire crystal, or use an ETA movement. Which is...
