Recapping 2018: 25 of Our Favorite Articles

Share this story:

It was a big year for watches, and through it all our goal with the editorial was to present our readers with everything from timely news and fun podcasts, to interesting narratives, historical deep dives, and valued guides. With the year coming to a close, we wanted to take a look back at some of our favorite articles from the past 12 months (in case you missed it, check out our favorite watch reviews of 2018 here). We would also like to take a moment to give a shoutout to our stellar team of writers and contributors, without whom none of this would be possible. Without further ado (and in no particular order), let’s get to it!
