  I’m going to be honest with you all and say that I never thought I’d review a digital watch. It’s not that I don’t see their usefulness, it’s more that I use this hobby partly to escape the fact that electronics dominate our lives....
As I’m sure I’ve mentioned before, vintage military watches are hot as hell right now amongst collectors. Prices on genuine military pieces are rocketing up faster than a Polaris missile. With this popularity comes a high demand for homage pieces of rare and expensive models...
As I said in my first review of a NATO strap, the high end Phenomenato, endless companies have jumped on the bandwagon in the past couple of years and started offering “premium” NATO’s. For a while I’ve been thirsting for another premium strap in green...
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...

Longines have built up quite the reputation in recent years for releasing great heritage reissues from their archives. There’s the ever popular Longines Legend Diver, the Flagship model, and most recently the Skindiver, which was announced at Basel 2018. One of my favourite of the...
  I’m going to be honest and admit that despite their solid reputation and enduring popularity, Hamilton’s Khaki Field range does nothing for me. The polished bezels on some are too dressy, and the dials are generally too busy and unbalanced for my taste. Even...
