  • Yes watch brings it all back home

    Yes Watch appeals to me on several levels. The complexity of all the things it does goes straight to the inner nerd. The utility of the things it does is a siren call to pragmatist. The simplicity of the design draws the aesthete. And for their 10th anniversary, they re-released their original concept. This is a sweet timepiece. Read more… Read More

  • Review: Tokyoflash Tibida Watch


    I’ve always had a thing for Tokyo Flash, but it’s always been from a distance. She was so alluring and yet so perplexing. I was awed and mystified. We’ve finally gotten together with the new Tibida. The best thing is how she looks on my arm, sleek and dark. When people see her, it’s all ‘wow’ and ‘cool’ and ‘how much did she cost… Read More

  • Review: Casio Pathfinder PAW1500T watch

    Good luck trying to figure out all the functions if you buy this watch. Seriously. It’s almost like there is a map to the lost world of Atlantis buried deep inside this watch and you need the brain of Rodney McKay to figure it out. I have to be honest though, this Casio Pathfinder watch is sweet. Read More

  • Storm MK V watch might make a nice XMas gift

    My buddy Scott had a Storm watch for teaching. Instead of glancing at his watch while he was at the lectern he would wear an earlier model of the Storm and check the time only when absolutely necessary because the central iris closes when you’re not checking the time. This new model, which costs about $180 has updated styling and seems to mimic the Hublot Big Bang without that whole… Read More

  • Review: Casio Oceanus OCWP500 watch


    The Casio Oceanus OCWP500 watch might appeal to geeks and ocean-bound divers alike. The solar-powered, atomic, titanium, auto calendar, chronograph watch strikes a chord with my inner gadget-loving self, but the overall design doesn’t float my boat – but it might yours. Read More

  • Review: Debaufre Aircraft-8

    What you do know will hurt you. As a long-time lover of larger than life watches, I was pleased when Steinhart nee Debaufre released a line of watches to rival Bell & Ross’ attempts at recreating old-timey airplane dial. As I’ve mentioned many times before, Bell & Ross watches are obscenely huge and obscenely expensive so to find a watch that mimics – but does not… Read More

  • Sony Ericsson Bluetooth watches still have no reason to exist

    These new ladies watches, dubbed the MBW-200, come in multiple styles and pair with most Sony Ericsson phones. They have a mini OLED display and buzz when your phone is ringing and also let you control music playback. I played with the first generation of these a few years ago and I just couldn’t understand what they were trying to offer here. It’s a watch that buzzes. Why… Read More
