As I (and pretty much every other watch site) have said countless times before, the vintage watch market is going from strength to strength and reaching dizzying heights. Just check out Hodinkee’s report of a 1958 Tudor Submariner that sold the other week. One trend...
Plenty of watch brands have a theme, or common aesthetic, across their watches that identifies them at a glance. Avi-8 have taken their theme (no prizes for guessing what it is) and really run with it. They produce a wide range of models, all of...
Dan Henry is a small, but interesting microbrand that a lot of people might not have heard of. As you might have guessed, it was founded by Dan Henry, an avid collector of vintage watches with over 30 years’ experience in the field and a...
A couple of years ago, back in the summer of 2016, Christopher Ward underwent the third rebranding in their history. It was based around a cleaner, more modern look, with a focus on their mutual English and Swiss heritage. It was a somewhat controversial marketing...

As many of you know NATO straps have grown in popularity these past few years, and they’re showing no signs of going away. Indeed, it seems hardly a month goes by when I’m not hearing of some new pop-up brand offering a variety of straps...
The Omega Seamaster 300 is one of the most iconic dive watches in history, and its adoption by the Royal Navy in 1967 secured its place on collectors’ most wanted lists. It hails from a golden age when dive watches were used as crucial tools,...
The Christopher Ward Trident is probably one of my favourite watches. It’s also apparently Christopher Ward’s bestselling model and this isn’t surprising in the slightest. I’ve had mine just over a year, & in my opinion it has a great blend of aesthetics, build quality,...
