Stop everything, here’s the Feynman Cove

Stop everything, here’s the Feynman Cove

Review
I think that the title of this article says it all… The Feynman Cove is just a bomb. Some months ago I wrote a review about the One Eclipse and I was already speechless about the quality and the beauty of this piece. But now, the Cove… oh guys this watch is a stunner.I received the piece some weeks ago and I can't take it off my wrist anymore. It’s probably one of best watches I had the chance to try this year. The watch that Yong Keong Lim sent me is the Cove Vintage. At first I would prefer the Founder’s Edition (green) or the Eclypse (blue) because I really like colorful watches. But when I opened the parcel and saw this deep black watch, I immediately fell in…

Feynman Timekeepers – One Eclipse

Feynman Timekeepers – One Eclipse

News
To start the year I had the pleasure to try the new Feynman One Eclipse, and guys, this is something you should add in your collection.Oh yes, this is not a sponsored post, but just my own thoughts. For the recall, Feynman Timekeepers was founded in Singapore by Yong Keong Lim who decided to name his brand after his son name, Feynman Lin, who was himself named like this as a homage to Richard Feynman, the father of Theoretical Physics. I saw their first release several times on the social networks and of course on their Kickstarter campaign launched in the end of 2018, and I always wondered about the quality of it. Now that I have it on my wrist I can say YES, this is a great timepiece…

Kickstarter – The Jubileon Superellipse

Kickstarter – The Jubileon Superellipse

News
So now this is your last chance to get this pretty cool automatic watch. Indeed, the Kickstarter campaign of Jubileon will end on the 8th September. For the moment, they have not reached their goal ... Well, no matter, they will be able to try again later and I am convinced that it will be a success. Honestly I don’t really understand why this campaign is not a big success right now... Because the watch is affordable, it has good specs and more than this, it has contemporary and classic design suitable for everyday use. I had the chance to try one and seriously the piece is really cool and it fits perfectly any wrist thanks to it size of 41 mm wide and 11.9 mm thick. The case is…

Straits Foundry: Bypassing Crowdfunding

Straits Foundry: Bypassing Crowdfunding

News
We are in August and sure thing is that I never saw so many new brands in our industry than this year...and yet Straits Foundry, another new microbrand, will be launched next September. It is true that the industry is suffering this year, but paradoxically, we see more and more small brands making their big debut... Interesting thing is that they often provide original and quality products. Unlike many young brands, Straits Foundry will sell their watches directly on their website and without going through Kickstarter. When we see the success of brands launched on the crowdfunding platforms, we are entitled to ask if this is the right strategy. The team is based in Singapore, and they are a curious crew of engineers by training and explorers on the weekends.…

Jubileon Superellipse: Not Only Mathematical Correct

Jubileon Superellipse: Not Only Mathematical Correct

News
What is it with Singapore and watches? Just like The Netherlands is it a small dot on the world map that produces a disproportional amount of great watches. At Watchisthis?! we are for instance a fan of Regia, which comes from Singapore, just as Jubileon. Jubileon's first model is called the Superellipse, which is a term used in mathematics. They used superellipse to mathematically represent the cushion shape of the case. I must say that this intellectual approach is quite refreshing, especially when it results in a great design as the Superellipse. Actually when I first saw the watch, I thought "that is a great aviation watch!". The tonneau case gives the watch a slight vintage touch, although its thickness and the screws indicate that it is purpose build, like…
