Victorinox Officer’s Watch Review

October 8, 2018

Victorinox For many of us, Victorinox holds a special place in our hearts.  A Victorinox pocket knife was usual the first knife we were ever given as kids, usually by our fathers.  But even with that, many of us don’t think of Victorinox as a watch company.  Yet they have made fine swiss made watches for years, and the Officer’s Watch is no […]

Seiko 5 Efficiency Test (7S26) : Science Time

August 27, 2018

The Efficiency of Seiko Whenever I’ve looked into Seiko 5 watches, and specifically those with the 7s26 movement.  I always seem to come across someone who mentions that one of the reasons that they omitted hand winding.  Was because Seiko didn’t think it was necessary.  That the efficiency of their magic lever (or magic fingers […]
