Back in November, we reviewed the Defakto Eins Nachtschicht, the ETA powered one handed timepiece by German watch maker Raphael Ickler. What we found to be “simple and striking”, the Eins is one of several similarly styled one and two-handed models in the Defakto line-up. This month, Defakto released its newest one-handed piece, the Detail, which sets itself apart with a fresh new look and comparably lower price tag.
A few months ago, Christopher Ward released a few extra options for their C8 and C11 pilot watches, bringing a PVD case and buckle finish to the already broad line. This was a welcome addition that was asked for by forum members and reviewers alike. This is my first time taking a look at the C11, which has always caught my eye with its unique shape and modern aviation feel.
At its best, masterful design results in the creation of timeless, iconic style. This is seen clearly in some of the most beautiful classic timepieces that we know and love today. Think of the Rolex milsub, Omega Speedmaster, Blancpain Fifty Fathoms etc.
A couple months ago I posted a guide to making a watch storage case out of a Pelican 1470 laptop case. For those of you not familiar, Pelican cases are ultra tough and come in a wide rage of sizes. We received excellent feedback from several readers. One in particular, Rizwan, wrote us to share his experience making not one but two Pelican watch cases, and he was kind enough to send along some pictures as well to post on the site.
Hey everyone! It’s the 4th of July, and that means no work, grilled food and drinking in the afternoon. That also means the worn&wound team is taking a break from our regularly scheduled Wednesday post. But not before we share with you the watch you should have purchased to show off on this 236th anniversary of our nation’s independence. Enjoy, and have a great 4th of July!
