  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,...
  Let’s be honest. The words “microbrand” and “value proposition” are used together a bit too frequently these days. Whilst often true, the former does not necessarily mean the latter. As the microbrand market has developed over the past few years, we’ve seen prices creep...
  When it was released back in 2019, the Q Timex 1979 reissue took the watch community by storm. As the name implies, it’s pretty much an exact recreation of one of their models from 1979, and the watch is a striking example of that...
  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...

  I must admit that my taste in watches is usually pretty reserved. I prefer more understated pieces which I’m sure some would probably find dull. However, I recently came across a piece that’s so delightfully… well, funky, that I had to get one. I...
  A few months ago I was approached (along with half of Instagram it seems) by Sternglas. They’re a young German brand that were founded in 2016. They wanted to send me a free watch to promote on social media a part of a widespread...
  When it comes to horology we all have our grail watch. That one piece whose design simply clicks with us when we see it. For me that piece was Tudor’s Black Bay 58. When Tudor announced the Black Bay 58 at Baselworld 2018 I...
