With quality that you might expect from a Rolex Submariner, or at least as close as they could get it. Including […]

Corgeut Railmaster Review

June 10, 2019

Today is the followup to the Miyota 821A video. You voted on which of the four watches to be reviewed first, and the winner is the Corgeut Railmaster homage. Model C130 (I think). Which as the name of the video suggests, takes its design from the Omega Seamaster Railmaster. Specifically 220.12.40.20.01.001 . Which has a […]

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. Which shouldn’t necessarily go together. This large and in charge chronograph is 44 mm wide without the crown, and 48 mm with. Which is […]
