Perlon straps for the summer

Uncategorized
As summer is there it’s now the time to put some colors on your wrist and we think that the Perlon strap is a good solution. Stop wearing your heavy steel bracelet and choose something a bit more lightweight. I must admit that when I first saw a perlon strap I was not sure what to think about. But, I’m a watch enthusiast and so I love different kind of straps and bracelets… So why not a Perlon? The pattern of the perlon strap is really nice and makes it very attractive; It adds texture and character to the strap and it’s ultra breathable. I personally choose the strap from WatchBandit to enhance my style during this hot season. Perlon watch straps are 100% water proof, so they are ideal…

Fromanteel – Pendulum Special Dark Edition

News
Some months ago the Dutch brand Fromanteel launched their first mechanical wriswatch under the name of Pendulum. Its name is a direct reference to the pendulum clock made by the Fromanteel clockmakers family in the 1660s. The pendulum became known as the world’s most innovative and precise clock – an amazing manifestation of the craftsmanship of that time. The Dutch team make a vivid connection with the Fromanteel history, and we can see that everything from the past has its influence on the present of the brand.

FEMÛR TRIQ: The Digital Triangle

FEMÛR TRIQ: The Digital Triangle

News
Digital watches still have a special appeal to them. Ever since they were introduced in the 1970's, they were here to stay. But the digital watches of today have very little in common with the digital watches of yesteryear. That is why the Triq by Femur is so interesting. The Triq is a triangle shaped watch; that seems to have two identical sides. However, one side has a heat reactive surface, and the other side shows the time. A simple tap with the finger gets the job done, and the time is displayed in bright, big dots. It reminds of the old digital watches, yet with a refreshing and modern twist. Those watches you also had to activate to see the time, to prevent excess battery drain, although back then…

The Cherwell by Marloe Watches

News
Thanks to the crowdfunding, and especially Kickstarter, we see the birth of more and more brands offering products made of good quality and at a very affordable price. Some offer nothing new, especially in terms of design, but we must nevertheless congratulate the creators for their commitment and their nerve to embark on an already crowded market. Other projects are simply very successful and are funded very quickly. What sets these brands apart from the "normal" watchmaking market is their true freedom in creation, in design, materials choices,...etc. In these projects, you can easily find anything you want or desire to embellish your wrist: from watches made out of old cars, to ultra thin minimalist timepieces, watches made out of wood or even smartwatches that bear in their heart the…

News
Richard Hoptroff is the kind of guy that you can easily put in the category « crazy genius ». You have probably already heard about his atomic watch – the N°10, but now you have to know that he also creates really cool and affordable watches.   The British Watchmaker based in London is doing interesting and smart complications with electronic watches that are linked directly to your smart phone. Instead of trying to do everything, like other smart watches, and losing the look and the utility of a conventional watch, these timepieces present only one specific function, and use the hands and subdials of the watch to convey the information of this smart function. Hotblack timepieces are tough on the outside with a very sporty look and really smart…
