This is kind of a big deal… I will be ordering one as soon as they are available.
I know I’ve saturated this joint with watch content lately… But that’s how it goes. I’m obsessing currently.
Anyway, here’s an email I got recently:
“Ryan, I need a new watch but I don’t want to be bothered by a mechanical and I don’t want to spend more than $200. Suggestions?”
First, I don’t typically recommend quartz watches. If you are on a budget, I always suggest a good Seiko automatic and if you absolutely have to have something bulletproof and battery powered, I like to recommend a G-Shock.
That said, if you have to have a quartz… and you have a gun to my head, buy a Braun. At least from a design perspective, they are on point.
Why do so many of the “American Made” boutique watch companies tend to use these soft watch cases with weird wire lugs? I don’t dig them… Otherwise, this field watch is pretty great.
This watch is sold… but I’m posting it so I remember it. I’ve never seen a Compax in this color and I love it. Must find.
A colab, minimalist diver project… Pretty good stuff.
So they call it a hybrid because it features a quartz watch movement and an analog interface, but also boasts most smart watch features as well. I still think, however, that smart watch straps would be the ultimate – let me where my old mechanical watches and let the strap do the smart stuff.
Pretty neat story about the watch from Dunkirk.
