I think it’s not a stretch to say that the biggest complaint against smart watches – today – is battery life (as is the case with most anything with a screen). Well, what if we could borrow from the history of watches to help get around that limitation
As you’re well aware (yup, that’s me being presumptious), Chicago and the surrounding areas have had quite a few interesting watch brands pop up in the past few years. One that actually calls Indiana home (but can still take a train into the Windy City) is Visitor Watch Co. We were hands-on with their first watch and now we’re quite overdue to tell you about their latest offering, the Visitor Watch Co Linden
Over the past few weeks, I’ve posted up reviews on watches from Teslar, both here and over at Knapsack that feature a chip that works with natural frequencies to help you feel better. Serendipity can be a funny thing, as I also had a watch come in from Philip Stein at the same time.
Sure, sure, it increases water resistance. But ever do a thing just because you could? That’s precisely what WatchChris has done here!
Back in 2016 we first told you about TotalWatchRepair for maintaining your mechanical movements. Well, did you know they can handle quartz watches as well?
There are a lot of materials that can be recycled. Some of them, however, can only have a certain amount of recycled material before it starts having issues
When we think of ceramic in watches, we tend to consider it as an accent material. Say, popping into a bezel insert. Of course, that’s not all the material is good for, and it can be used to create the whole watch – case and bracelet.
To date, I have been fortunate to have been able to review the Phoibos Ocean Master , the Sentinel , and the Great Wall .
Mido’s diver line is historic and quite beautiful. Their latest update, the Ocean Star , features an ETA movement and a striking design that could even beat a Seiko Monster in terms of design. The piece is a mere $1,150 and it comes with a bracelet and fabric strap
Just as a strap change is a quick and easy way to mix up the look of your watch and freshen it, playing around with the dial on an watch can do much the same. Of course, that’s not a 30-second operation, and if you’re doing it yourself, there’s a lot more sweat equity involved. But hey, brands can do it as well, right?
