  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...

  I have to confess that myself, like a lot of watch nerds, hate spending lots on a watch strap. Despite happily having watches worth hundreds, if not thousands, from luxury Swiss brands many of us wouldn’t dream of spending the money the same brand...
  The concept of a watch a man (or woman) can wear anywhere, whilst doing anything, has been around for a while now. Brought on by the popularity of classic brands like Rolex, whose watches are both elegant and durable, a market has developed for...
