I am not a Star Wars nerd. I mean, I like the movies as much as the next guy, but I don’t go all bat shit with it. I am, however, a watch nerd and this digital Citizen is straight up RAD.

Q Timex 38mm

Read More

This new Timex re-issue speaks to me man… I totally dig the pink and black color-way, the case size is perfect, and the expansion band just screams of the golden era… I don’t typically dig on quartz watches, but I would make an exception for this one.

An email from my one reader:

Hey Ryan. I want one watch for the rest of my life and I want it to work for every occasion – from a business meeting to a hunting expedition to the race track. I have $1500 to spend and that’s a mortgage payment to me… If I do this, I want something that will make me feel good about it.

Easy. I don’t even have to think about it. Get a Sinn 556 A RS on the bracelet. It’s a simple 38mm stainless watch with one of the best movements ever made. Plus, it’s stunning… absolutely stunning in its simplicity.

You will never regret buying a Sinn.

Seconde-Seconde

I believe these guys are French… And essentially, they take high-end vintage watches and customize them. On paper, I HATE the idea. In practice, I think they are absolutely gorgeous. If you have some time today, just browse some of their collection.

The want is real.

Sinn U1-T DS Limited Edition

Read More

My standard dive watch is a standard U1. It’s a bit big and a bit heavy, but gloriously made and honestly, it wears really well for it’s size and heft.

Sinn just released a limited edition version of the same watch. I love it.

Oris Whale Shark

I have a Whale Shark dive on my resume… It was an experience I will never forget and to this day, I often wonder how such an amazing animal can exist and yet be neglected. It’s disgusting actually…

Oris recently released the Whale Shark – a limited edition dive watch with eyes on raising money to save the endangered species. It’s pretty rad too…
