About Vintage 1956 Marine If you like vintage-inspired pieces, well there is a brand dedicated to that, and the About Vintage 1956 Marine is their latest piece. About Vintage is a Danish brand, hailing from Copenhagen, Denmark. It is run by two childhood friends who love watches and wanted to create a brand dedicated to the vintage side of things. And why not? Vintage is in, and it has been in, hell I remember five years ago saying how vintage is all the rage, and it still is. This new dive-style watch measures 41mm, so it is more of a modern size, but the design takes elements of watches fr ..read more

Bernhardt Binnacle Timer Hands-On Review
Watch Report

1M ago
Bernhardt Binnacle Timer As I was preparing this Bernhardt Binnacle Timer review, it occurred to me that next year, Bernhardt, based in North Carolina will be twenty years old. Yes, Bernhardt is one of the OG microbrands and next year they will have been producing watches for two decades. Now keep in mind part of why it just dawned on me as I can’t believe it’s going to be 2025 next year, because in my head it is still like 2002, and the ’90s isn’t 30 years ago! Back to the present though, and late last year Bernhardt released their latest model, using their popular retro case, the Binnalce ..read more

Udone Aquadeep Hands-On Watch Review
Watch Report

2M ago
Udone Aquadeep Are you in the market for a large, chunky titanium diver, and Seiko and citizen divers are not doing it for you? Maybe take a look at this Undone Aquadeep. Grade 2 titanium case with a unique case design, 500m water resistant, sapphire, and an NH35 movement for just under $395. While it doesn’t have all the customization options that some Undone watches do, it is a spec monster and while it’s not revolutionary in appearance, it does have a few distinct features to stand out a little.  Specifications: 43mm Case Width (without crown guards and crown) 22m Lug Width 50mm Lu ..read more

Ollech & Wajs M-110 AS Hands-On Review
Watch Report
by Don Evans
2M ago
Ollech & Wajs M-110 AS The name Ollech & Wajs has been around since 1956 and this Ollech & Wajs M-110 AS is a watch I was not sure I wanted to check out initially. That’s an odd way to start a review intro, but it’s true. I have been eyeing the OW 8001, and I thought this model was the same as the C-1000 Diver with just a slightly different dial and a compass bezel. Well, I couldn’t have been more wrong, and I am delighted to be able to review this beautiful skin diver/military field watch fusion. Yes, this watch is somewhat of an anomaly. It’s a skin diver case, with 300m of wat ..read more

Nivada Grenchen F77 Hands-On Review
Watch Report
by Don Evans
2M ago
Nivada Grenchen F77 The original Nivada Grenchen F77 was released in 1977. Now, 46 years later, the resurrected Nivada has re-issued the F77, staying pretty close to the original in design, but using modern manufacturing and materials. Heavily inspired by the Genta-Design Audemars Piguet Royal Oak, released just 5 years earlier in 1972, Nivada wasn’t shy about copying it. And now here in 2023, with so many jumping on the Genta design bandwagon, it’s only appropriate that Nivada pull from their back catalog and bring this piece to a present-day audience. Available currently in three colorways ..read more

Duzu DW-D3 Hands-On Watch Review
Watch Report
by Don Evans
2M ago
Duzu DW-D3 A dive watch that is inspired by the Southern Right Whale. That is what the Duzu DW-D3 is, as well as the third diver watch for the Western Australian microbrand. This is the fourth watch for the young brand, with three dive watches and one pilot’s chronograph. While dive watches are probably the most produced and reproduced style of watch these days, Duzu was still able to make something that is not an homage, and even though at first glance it may just look like another dual-crown dive watch, this diver taking inspiration from the whale does so in various ways, none of them bein ..read more

The Latest Zelos Swordfish-Hands-On Review
Watch Report
by Don Evans

Zelos Swordfish This Zelos Swordfish is the latest version of this very popular microbrand model, and there are a few recent changes and some new dial colors, but mostly this is a new run of a mainstay model from the Singapore micro. Most here are probably familiar with Zelos, even if you have never owned one, you have probably seen them in group posts, Facebook or Instagram posts, or ads or maybe even your friend owns one. Zelos has not only grown over the years immensely but they also have sustained a massive following for the last decade and they show no signs of slowing down. The Swordfi ..read more

Elliot Brown Beachmaster Hands-On Watch Review
Watch Report
by Don Evans
3M ago
Elliot Brown Beachmaster A more than capable dive watch, a GMT, and the ability to time two different events at once. That is the Elliot Brown Beachmaster, a mission timer GMT that also happens to have a patent for how it is displayed and all works together. Late last year Elliot Brown released the automatic version of the Beachmaster and recently they dropped quartz versions. Like most EB automatic watches, they don’t come cheap, and the auto version is well over $2,000. These new Ronda 515.24H quartz versions come in under $1000, and you get pretty much everything that you get with its pre ..read more

Jack Mason Hydrotimer Hands-On Watch Review
Watch Report

Jack Mason Hydrotimer Jack Mason may have started with what many would refer to as a “fashion brand” watch, but this Jack Mason Hydrotimer is anything but a fashion watch. With 300m of water resistance, an all-stainless steel case with a hard coating, ceramic bezel insert, gilt hands and indices, and just an overall solid feel and finish, and a Miyota 9039 Automatic movement, this watch and brand are definitely in the micro brand category, one most watch enthusiasts would own, or at the very least, take a hard look at. I reviewed 2 models just a little over 5 years ago, and while I review ev ..read more

Hands-On With The Montoir Skin Diver- Launching on Kickstarter
Watch Report
by Don Evans
4M ago
Montoir Skin Diver Hitting Kickstarter tomorrow, October 10, 2023, is the Montoir Skin Diver. There truly seems to be no end to new brands emerging, and though some folks might see this as oversaturation, I see it as just more options and choices for everyone. Speaking of choices, the Montoir will be available in 5 dial color options, use the Sellita SW200-1 movement, and be marked Swiss Made. This is a great example of a skin diver-moderately sized, light, very legible, and of course, that iconic case style that is so comfortable on the wrist. The super early bird pricing will be $375 for t ..read more
