Our Six Most Popular Watch Reviews of 2022

Our editorial team had a busy year, reviewing dozens of watches in-depth that span a diverse range of brands and genres. Last year, we brought you our own favorites reviews, but this year we’re bringing you our most popular reviews as decided by you, our readers. These are our 6 most read reviews of 2022, and they might not be what you’re expecting. There is one exception, as a review that ended up in the top 6 this year, was actually published last year, and that is this review of the Rolex Explorer 124270 (which you should definitely read if you haven’t yet). How do these reviews line up with your favorite watches of the year? Let us know in the comments below. 

Without further ado, here are our five most popular reviews of 2022, beginning with number 6.

Owner’s Review: The Omega Speedmaster, Divided

The Omega X SWATCH MoonSwatch commanded plenty of attention this year, and this isn’t its only appearance on this list (spoiler alert) as a result. In this owner’s review, Blake Buettner takes a closer look at the MoonSwatch next to its steel counterpart, the new 3816 Speedmaster Professional. This is a lighthearted approach to comparing the two siblings (?), and we find a couple of watches that compliment each other surprisingly well.

Review: The Tissot PRX Chronograph

Next up is a review from Ed Jelley featuring the Tissot PRX Chronograph in two dial configurations. The PRX has been hugely popular since its release, and for good reason. It packs handsome (and on trend) looks and solid build quality into a reasonably priced package that is beginning to encompass a broad selection of sizes and now, complications. It’s had a huge impact that we expect to continue to evolve in 2023. Until then, don’t miss Ed’s review and excellent pictures.

Reviewed: The Unexpected Tudor Pelagos FXD [With Video]

Moving on to a review from early in the year, of a watch that actually came out at the tail end of 2021, the Tudor FXD. Here, Blake Buettner reviews the odd diver and finds plenty of charm buried in all the quirks. Plus, you know, velcro strap. The Tudor FXD is, to this day, a bit of a rare sight, not only on wrists but in ADs, and the lore has only grown since its release as a result. Tudor likely doesn’t produce many of these, but with the end of the year around the corner, we can say goodbye to the ’22 caseback and keep an eye out for the first ’23 watches to hit the streets.

[VIDEO] Review: The Almost Too Good Tudor Pelagos 39

Coming in at number 3 is Blake Buettner’s review of the Tudor Pelagos 39, one of our favorite divers released this year. We love a good tool watch around here and Tudor delivered in a big way with a slimmed down Pelagos featuring a titanium case and bracelet. What it surrendered in hard core diving credentials, it gained in every day approachability and wearability. It even ditched the date! We already talked about watches that linger, and if we’re being honest, this is one that still sits in the back of most of our minds.

Owner’s Review: The Tudor Black Bay Pro

Near the top here we’ve got another owner’s review from Blake Buettner, and yes, it’s another Tudor. The Black Bay Pro proved a divisive release from Watches & Wonders early in the year, but this is a watch that won more than a few of us over in actual everyday use. Forget about the numbers, this watch just works on the wrist, and it opened up a new potential food for more Pro level tool watches from Tudor, something we’re wholeheartedly rooting for. Whatever Pro means, of course.

Review (with Video): Omega x Swatch BioCeramic Speedmaster MoonSwatch Mission to Jupiter

Finally, in what should come as no surprise, we have Zach Weiss’ excellent, over the top review of the MoonSwatch in Jupiter form. This watch caught our collective attention and the foot never really came off the gas. There are lines at Swatch stores to this day with folks still looking to score one, as they never ended up hitting the online store. How will Omega and Swatch follow up on this smash hit? Will more brands follow suit? Whatever your feelings on the watch itself (read our thoughts in hindsight right here), there’s no denying the outsized impact this release had on the industry this year.
