Some really interesting watches my friends!

Today we take a look to the traveller military pilot watch.

All the straps are lightweight and comfortable to wear while giving off a ruggedly handsome vibe. 

The Traveler Watch ensures that you are always running on time while keeping your look stylish, rugged and classic.

Jack Turner Watches Microbrand – a special pilot

The second hand of the traveller is perfect for precision timekeeping and the white Arabic numerals are easy to read. 

Silent sweep movement guarantees that all you notice is the good looks and timekeeping properties of this handsome watch.

It is powered by the Seiko VH31 sweep second movement that was introduced in 2018.

This movement is unique because the sweeping hands beat four times per second creating the fluid appearance of an automatic watch but with quartz precision and reliability. 

The black dial has two separate disks, one atop the other, that holds luminescent materials in the recessed indexes that show through the cutouts in the top layer thus creating the watch’s wonderful luminescence effect.

This clever sandwich effect is usually only seen on high-end divers watchers. 

The bottom dial on The Traveler Watch has recessed numerals and indices while the top dial is carved out to reveal a beautiful green Super-LumiNova® coating which ensures the ability to see in the dark out in the field or anywhere that you happen to be.

Offering up to ten times more brightness than other zinc-based luminous phosphorescent material this technology is normally reserved for luxury watches at much higher price points. 

You will also enjoy a sapphire glass crystal that contains 9 Mohs of mineral hardness which makes it resistant to scratches during normal use.

Of course, it is not impossible to scratch the crystal but it is very difficult although not impossible for scratches to result after rubbing up against a stone or concrete wall for example. 

This watch is in limited supply, only 150 pieces of this watch will be produced pre-order. Order now to lock in the pre-order, discounted price.

These watches should be available for shipping the first week of April 2021.

Makina Watches Microbrand

If you are looking for a really cool dress watch Makina Watches is a great microbrand and their watches are a good choice for you!

Makina, which means “machine”, is a Manila micro brand that builds on the sportier side of dress watches. 

From what I have seen, This brand is not one to build one homage piece after another.

They have a real focus on coming up with original designs.

None of the parts are stock parts but are entirely created and produced from scratch from case to dial to hands to crown.

makina watches dress watch

Having said that, they don’t try and achieve originality with gimmickry but instead with subtle design cues that challenge what a watch should look like and add a lot of character along the way.

Makina Watches – the elegance of the dress watch

Makina is like this because the founder, Danilo Villanueva, is a Creative Director by trade; He spent several years art directing and building campaigns in the advertising industry where, in 2017, he took a break to build what Makina Watches is today. 

Housed in the brand’s most curvaceous case, Uriel III (above) is a modern take and tribute to an age-old tool watch used by doctors, the pulsometer watch. It features a unique stretched cushion case design.

Makina Watches – details

CASE – 40mm. 316L Stainless steel, stretched cushion case design. Polished finish. 50 meters water resistance. Screw down crown. Exhibition case back.

Calamai Watches Microbrand

Here we are with a new review dedicated to Calamai Watches Microbrand.

This time we are talking for the first time about a pilot watch with some very unique features.

This watch is given to the Italian Air Force, so I am really proud to do this review.

Let’s start right away with the packaging, a comfortable leather travel case with the logo of an airplane forming the C of the founder of the brand, Francesco Calamai.

The watch in question is the G-50 arrow with a black dial and leather strap.

This timepiece features a 40mm diameter case and Sellita SW 580 top grade movement and 48 hour power reserve and screw down crown.

Calamai watches special materials

Among the features of this watch that impressed me the most are definitely the three-dimensionality of the dial and the material with which the case was produced.

The casing of each watch was forged by melting the steel of the G.E. turbine that powered an F-104 of the Italian Air Force. Indeed, the serial number of the exact turbine disc utilised is engraved on the caseback.

To reach the highest levels of precision, each casing is forged through lost-wax microfusion and then hand-finished.

The watch is really comfortable to wear on the wrist and is among my favorite pilot watches!

If you are looking for an italian microbrand and a really special pilot watch, Calamai watches are defenitely for you!

Italian

Eccoci con una nuova recensione dedicata a Orologi Calamai.

Questa volta parliamo per la prima volta di un pilot watch con delle caratteristiche davvero uniche.

Vi ricordo che questo orologio viene dato in dotazione alla Aeronautica Miltare italiana e per questo motivo sono davvero orgoglioso di realizzare questa recensione.

Partiamo subito dal packaging, una comoda custodia da viaggio in pelle con il logo di un aereo a formare la C del fondatore del brand, Francesco Calamai.

L’orologio in questione è il G-50 freccia con quadrante nero e cinturino in pelle.

Questo segnatempo presenta 40 mm di diametro cassa e movimeto Sellita SW 580 top grade e 48 ore di riserva di carica e corona a vite.

Tra le caratteristiche di questo orologio che più mi hanno colpito ci sono sicuramente la tridimensionalità del quadrante e il materiale con il quale è stato prodotta la cassa.

Infatti la cassa del G-50 Freccia è stata realizzata utilizzando la turbina di un aereo F104

Milus Archimèdes Watch Review

Here we are with the Milus Archimedes Watch Review!

Milus is a historic Swiss brand founded in 1919 and Archimèdes is the modern successor to their Super compressor model from the 1970s as well as the 666, the original model created a decade earlier.

This swiss made watch intrigued me from the beginning thanks to its design and its dial, simple, complete and compact.

Today I want to review it with you and I want to explain why I consider it one of the best choices for value for money.

First let’s start with the packaging, simple and minimal but at the same time useful. A comfortable leather travel case, containing watch and strap.

I really appreciated this choice because I have never loved bulky boxes that are always abandoned in the attic and I must say that many brands are moving towards this choice such as Oris with the mare nostrum model.

This watch is immediately ready to use, in fact, the strap is mountable through a button convenient and fast.

The case is brushed, with a diameter of 41 mm and a black dial and internal bidirectional rotating bezel.

Hhands are typical of vintage Milus 60s/70s “Broad Arrow” style and coated with SuperLuminova with excellent glow in the dark.

Milus Archimèdes – movement and features

This timepiece is powered by an ETA 2892A2 (TOP) movement with 42 hours of power reserve and is water resistant to 300 meters.

The crown is screw-down (as is the case back) while the crystal is sapphire with anti-reflective treatment.

In addition to all these features, the watch also has a helium valve, which I remember is used to allow the helium molecules to escape during immersion, avoiding creating any damage to the watch.

Conclusion

This watch is in my opinion a great choice mainly for 3 reasons and they are also the ones I evaluate every time I buy a watch:

History of the brand we are not talking about a brand born a few months ago but a historic watchmaker born in 1919 and has just turned 100 years old.

When you buy a watch we are not just buying a physical object but the price is also justified by the seriousness of the brand and the history behind it.

Quality of materials and movement. As soon as I wore the watch I immediately perceived the quality of the materials of which this timepiece is made, from the leather strap to the finishes of the case and dial, everything is in perfect harmony.

In addition, we are not talking about a basic movement but the choice of a TOP grade in my opinion justifies the price that I consider low.

milus archimedes review by mrwatch93

Price in my opinion consistent, under 2 thousand euros and in an affordable range. We can have a Swiss Made watch with a great movement at a reasonable price.

Vertigo Watches – il microbrand italiano

Oggi finalmente recensiamo il microbrand italiano Vertigo Watches!

Ho avuto l’opportunità di conoscere questo marchio dal vivo durante Watches of Italy, la prima fiera italiana di orologi dedicata ai micromarchi italiani e ho subito percepito le potenzialità di questi segnatempo.

Prezzo competitivo, stile vintage, precisione e comfort sono le caratteristiche principali di questo cronografo, il Vertigo Tornante.

Ho detto stile vintage perché guardando il quadrante e soprattutto il retro dell’orologio mi sono subito venuti in mente le auto e il contachilometri delle macchine degli anni 60/70.

vertigo watches

Il quadrante (protetto da un vetro zaffiro antiriflesso) è davvero bello e ricorda il marrone brillante o il sole, molto evidente soprattutto in presenza di luce.

Inoltre, la scala tachimetrica è incorporata nel quadrante, anche se la preferisco esterna.

Il fondello dell’orologio è caratterizzato dal design del bordo di un’auto da corsa degli anni ’60.

Le dimensioni sono 41 mm di diametro, da capocorda a capocorda 47 mm e capocorda 22 mm.

Anche il cinturino con i fori larghi ricorda lo stile tipico dei guanti da guida visti nei vecchi film di corse.

In presenza di oscurità la leggibilità dell’epoca non ha problemi grazie al superluminova.

Vertigo Watches – rapporto qualità/prezzo

Per quanto riguarda il movimento, questo orologio ha un Seiko Mecaquartz VK64, resistente fino a 100 metri.

Tutto questo è contenuto in una comoda e compatta scatola da viaggio e ad un prezzo di soli 230 euro, dimostrandosi un grande regalo ad un prezzo molto ragionevole.

Se amate i motori e il vintage, il Vertigo Tornante è l’orologio giusto per voi!

Today we finally review another Italian microbrand, vertigowatches !

I had the opportunity to get to know this brand live during Watches of Italy, the first Italian watch fair dedicated to Italian microbrands and I immediately perceived the potential of these timepieces.

Competitive price, vintage style, precision and comfort are the main features of this chronograph, the Vertigo Tornante.

I said vintage style because looking at the dial and especially at the back of the watch I immediately came to mind the cars and the odometer of the machines back to the 60s/70s.

The dial (protected by an anti-reflective sapphire crystal) is really beautiful and recalls the bright brown or sunburst, very evident especially in the presence of light.

In addition, the tachymeter scale is incorporated in the dial, although I prefer it external.

The back of the watch is characterized by the design of the rim of a racing car from the 60s.

The dimensions are 41 mm in diameter, lug to lug 47 mm and lug 22 mm.

Even the strap with the wide holes is reminiscent of the typical style of driving gloves seen in old racing movies.

In the presence of darkness the legibility of the time has no problems thanks to the superluminova.

As for the movement, this watch has a Seiko Mecaquartz VK64, resistant to 100 meters.

All this is contained in a comfortable and compact travel box and at a price of only € 230, proving to be a great gift at a very reasonable price.

If you love motors and vintage, the Vertigo Tornante is the right watch for you!

Isotope Watches Microbrand

In primo piano

Today I want to show you the microbrand Isotope watches, a watch that really surprised me and probably one of the best diver at such a competitive price.

After discovering this watch on Instagram I decided to review it through my Mrwatch93 page.

The diver in question is the Goutte d’Eau model, whose shape was conceived taking inspiration from the 1937 Talbot Lago t150 car. Seeing the case of the watch you immediately understand why.

Isotope watches has conceived this watch with a high quality diver in mind but with an absolutely contained shape (40 mm in diameter).

Isotope Watches – you decide the movement

This watch has several features that make it special. Starting first with the choice of automatic movement, we can in fact decide to have a Seiko NH38 movement (41 hours power reserve and accuracy -20/+40 seconds per day) or a SwissMade Sellita SW2000 movement (38 hours power reserve and accuracy -12/+12 seconds per day).

316L steel, sapphire crystal and water resistance up to 200 meters complete the qualities of this watch, along with the obviously screw-down crown and internal rotating bezel.

Among the features that struck me most we have the colors of this watch starting from the second hand, until the strap born and the crown that moves the inner bezel, all these elements always present the same color harmony.

In fact, Isotope Watches are available in green, red, blue, yellow and orange!

Isotope Watches – How to buy it

If you want a nice diver and want to spend cheap, this watch is definitely for you.

MitchMason Watches

Today I want to tell you about MitchMason Watches , a microbrand based in Singapore, that has been able to revisit the vintage style inspired by the watches of the Second World War in a totally contemporary key.

After wearing their first Chronicle model for 3 weeks I was very surprised, both by their size (only 36.50 mm in diameter) and their compactness.

Absolutely pleasant to wear on your wrist.

The balance between style and comfort is obviously not the only strong point of this watch.

In fact, the MitchMason Chronicle is also characterized by the superluminova, which makes it possible to read the time in all light conditions.

MitchMason watches – Modern features

Although the watch recalls the vintage style, it is equipped with absolutely modern features, namely a sapphire crystal and water resistance to 200m with screw crown.

The MitchMason chronicle has a power reserve of 42 hours and is powered by the Myota 9039 automatic movement with functions such as hacking and self winding.

Another feature that I liked about this watch is the concept of symmetry that it manages to convey, which is why there is no date display.

Making the dial clean and totally symmetrical and proportioned.

The dial is available in 2 variations, one more vintage and another more modern.

The packaging is also very interesting, no longer the usual square boxes but a soft leather case excellent especially to hold more watches and take them on travel.

I really liked this watch especially for its versatility, in fact I can wear it both in the office under a sweater or a stylish shirt and with friends.

Currently the MitchMason Chronicle is available in pre-order at a price of $449 and the final sale price will be $499.

For its characteristics I believe that the price is right and in line with the product.

If you want to make a nice gift, MitchMason watches will give you great satisfaction!

Italian

Oggi voglio parlarvi degli orologi MitchMason, un microbrand con base a Singapore che ha saputo rivisitare lo stile vintage ispirato agli orologi della seconda guerra mondiale in chiave totalmente contemporanea.

Dopo aver indossato il loro primo modello Chronicle per 3 settimane sono rimasto molto sorpreso, sia dalle dimensioni (solo 36.50 mm di diametro) e sia per la loro compattezza.

Assolutamente piacevole da portare al polso.

Il bilanciamento tra stile e comfort ovviamente non è l’unico punto di forza di questo orologio.

Infatti Il MitchMason Chronicle è caratterizzato anche dal superluminova, il quale permette di poter leggere l’orario in qualsiasi condizione di luce.

Nonostante il segnatempo richiami lo stile vintage, è dotato di caratteristiche assolutamente moderne, ovvero un vetro in zaffiro e resistenza all’acqua fino a ben 200m con corona a vite.

Il MitchMason chronicle ha una riserva di carica di 42 ore ed è alimentato dal movimento automatico Myota 9039 con funzioni come fermo macchina (hacking) e anche carica manuale (self winding).

Un’altra caratteristica che mi è piaciuta di questo orologio è il concetto di simmetria che riesce a trasmettere, motivo per cui non è presente il datario, rendendo il quadrante pulito e totalmente simmetrico e proporzionato.

Il quadrante è disponibili in 2 varianti, una più vintage e un’altra più moderna.

Anche il packaging è molto interessante, non più le solite scatole quadrate ma una custodia morbida in cuoio, ottima soprattutto per contenere più orologi e portarli in viaggio.

Orologi MitchMason – un orologio versatile

Questo orologio mi è piaciuto molto soprattutto per la sua versatilità, infatti posso indossarlo sia in ufficio sotto un maglione o una camicia elegante sia in contesti meno formali.

Inoltre un piccolo tasto permette di cambiare cinturino velocemente e con facilità.

Attualmente il MitchMason Chronicle è disponibile in preordine al prezzo di 449$ mentre il prezzo di vendita finale sarà di 499$.

Per le sue caratteristiche credo che il prezzo sia giusto e in linea con il prodotto.

Se volete farvi un bel regalo, gli orologi MitchMason vi daranno grandi soddisfazioni!

Recensione Seagull 1963

Il Seagull 1963 è un grande classico e non può non essere posseduto da buon appassionato di orologi. Nonostante il suo prezzo molto contenuto (circa 239 euro a questo sito) è dotato di vetro zaffiro resistenti a graffi e urti e cinturino in pelle. L’orologio è particolarmente versatile, adatto sia per situazioni più movimentate che per momenti molto eleganti.

Il Seagull 1963 è un segnatempo a carica manuale e la classica versione acquistabile è quella da 38 mm, adatto soprattutto per polsi piccoli. Sul sito indicato a inizio articolo è possibile acquistare diverse versioni, quadrante verde, panda, 42 mm e tanti altri. Ho acquistato questo segnatempo per i miei 26 anni ed è stato il mio primo cronografo. Infatti dopo aver visto diverse foto e video su youtube non ho resistito.

Il venditore è stato molto gentile e la confezione si presenta con la tipica scatola beige con stella rossa e all’interno contenente l’orologio con cinturino nato verde militare. A prima vista i 38 mm fanno sembrare l’orologio molto più piccolo rispetto alle foto che si trovano in giro, ma dopo averlo indossato diverse volte lo si apprezza ogni giorno sempre di più!

Per la cifra a cui viene venduto, 239€ , ci si rende conto da subito che il rapporto qualità/prezzo per questo cronografo è davvero ottimo e che si ha in mano un orologio molto particolare. Infatti, la vista degli ingranaggi sul fondello permette di apprezzare a pieno l’orologio e ci si sente molto soddisfatti dal primo momento in cui si apre la scatola. Le prime sensazioni trasmesse da questo segnatempo sono morbidezza e compattezza. La morbidezza è data dalla corona e noterete quanto si muoverà fluidamente quando caricherete l’orologio per la prima volta! In totale sincerità posso dirti che questo Seagull 1963 a mio parere è in assoluto il miglior cronografo che puoi trovare ad un costo così contenuto e con un rapporto qualità/prezzo così ottimale!

Dove acquistare il Seagull 1963 ?

Questo orologio è abbastanza difficile da trovare ma esiste qualche rivenditore online che permette di acquistarlo a un ottimo prezzo. Ti consiglio questo sito per effettuare l’acquisto!

Review Seagull 1963

The Seagull 1963 is a great classic and cannot not be possessed by a good watch enthusiast. Despite its very low price (about 239€ on this site) is equipped with scratch and shock-resistant sapphire crystal and leather strap. The watch is particularly versatile, suitable for both more lively situations and very elegant moments.

The Seagull 1963 is a hand-wound timepiece and the classic purchasable version is the 38 mm version, suitable for small wrists. On this website you can buy the different versions: green dial, panda, 42 mm and many others. I bought this timepiece for my 26th birthday and it was my first chronograph. In fact, after seeing several photos and videos on youtube, I couldn’t resist.

The seller was very kind and the package is presented with the typical beige box with red star and inside containing the watch with a strap born military green. At first glance the 38 mm make the watch look much smaller than the pictures around, but after wearing it several times you appreciate it every day more and more!

For the amount at which it is sold, about 250 euros, you realize immediately that the quality/price ratio for this chronograph is really good and that you are holding a very special watch. In fact, the view of the gears on the back allows you to fully appreciate the watch and you feel very satisfied from the first moment you open the box. The first sensations transmitted by this timepiece are softness and compactness. The softness is given by the crown and you will notice how smoothly it will move when you wind the watch for the first time! In all sincerity I can tell you that this Seagull 1963 in my opinion is absolutely the best chronograph you can find at such a low cost and with such an optimal quality/price ratio!

Where to buy the Seagull 1963 ?

This watch is quite difficult to find but there are some online retailers that allow you to buy it at a great price. I recommend this link to the website to make the purchase!

Links are affiliate links; this means that if you use one of my links and add a product to your cart, I will earn a small percentage. Don’t worry, for you this has no additional cost so if you want to give me a hand I’ll be grateful!
