Making Waves: Phoibos Wave Master 2.0 Review

May 9, 2019

One of the things I love about Phoibos is that they seek honest criticism of their watches. Then use that to improve them. The original version of their Wavemaster came out a year ago, and most of the reviews were rather positive. Generally, people loved the Wavy dial and Super Engineer style bracelet. Yet there […]

AVI-8 Hawker Harrier II Matador Review : Danger Zone

March 15, 2019

This is the AVI-8 Hawker Heritage II Matador, a mouth full of a name, and a rather crazy looking watch from AVI-8. I’ts a partially skelotonized dial, on a quartz watch.

February 8, 2019

So today we are taking another look at yet another Starking. Although this may be my last Starking for a while.
