Making watches using only recycled materials: this is the mission of The Sacred Crafts. Let's discover their new model. The Grand Mer is born from the recovery of boat propellers. The mission of The Sacred Crafts is to make watches using recycled materials and with the aim of having a strong impact on coral reefs and coastal protection.An ambitious project born from a great passion for nature and the sea. A watch made from bronze recovered from the propellers of abandoned boats and countless meters of fishing nets no longer used.All the components of this timepiece make one perceive a real research that goes beyond the concept of recycling.In fact, the most striking thing was the realization of SeaGlass, a material made using a special biological resin to transform the…

Review – Timeless Swiss Watches

Review – Timeless Swiss Watches

Review
Several weeks ago I discovered on the social networks a new Swiss microbrand named Timeless. I’ve been directly captivated by the design of the piece and so I decided to contact Mael Oberkampf, the founder and designer of the brand (an interview will come in the next weeks). After some weeks of conversation he decided to send me the two watches that are part of his first collection. Let’s welcome home the HMS watches :-) I was honestly happy that he accepted my proposal because I was quite intrigued by these pieces. It is quite rare to find a new brand, or micro brand, which has a more or less affordable price, and which has a totally different design than what is already on the market. So yes, for those who…

Isotope Goutte d’Eau Compressor Diver Watch

Isotope Goutte d’Eau Compressor Diver Watch

Review
We start the year with a new contributor and here is his first article…. Oh yes, welcome Giuseppe ;-) We already talked about their really cool Rider Jumping Hours, but here we will present something different ! Today I would like to present you a really cool Diver watch from Isotope, The Goutte d'Eau!  This watch has a nice concept history and a design approach that is quite timeless. In fact, The Goutte d’Eau shape takes inspiration from the design of the 1937 Talbot-Lago T150-C SS Coupé, widely regarded as one of the most beautiful cars ever built. This watch has also another interesting feature, a bespoke and exclusive stainless steel bracelet with a discreet extension clasp mechanism that allows you to quickly change the bracelet size to wear over a…

Last of 2020 – Rogue Horology Type 1 Diver

Last of 2020 – Rogue Horology Type 1 Diver

Review
Finally we arrive at the end of this very bizarre year ... We must admit that the Covid has turned everything upside down and for us watch journalists the year was really strange ... No trade fairs, no real contact with people, difficulties in trying on watches, and so on. Well, it was the same thing for everyone and even if 2021 arrives I'm not sure there will be any real improvements. It does not matter, Watchisthis will continue to disseminate information about watches under $ 2500, microbrands, but not just that ... And yes it is an announcement, we will also evolve in 2021. And to end this year I wanted to highlight to a project that I really like. This is Rogue Horology from Singapore. Well I’m honest…

The really special Atowak Windows

The really special Atowak Windows

Review
Something new today… Our friend Michał Dziubiński from Katowice in Poland gives us his thoughts about one of his new watches… And let's say that it's a really nice one. So yes, he wanted to present us a new microbrand from HK named Atowak. Let's go Michał it's your turn ;-) I'm really happy because I have the chance to be with the ATOWAK Windows from already some weeks and I have to say that love this watch! I saw this piece on Kickstarter and I directly fell in love with it. They have 2 models: Window and Window Pro. I like both but for me the version Pro is harder to read time, despite this, it looks awesome and I wanted it so much! I have chosen the blue…

Vario Empire Emerald Green Watch

Vario Empire Emerald Green Watch

Review
Some weeks ago I found out the Vario White Tuxedo on Facebook and I directly wanted to try it. The style of this piece is all what I like. Small size, bi-color dial, guilloché finishing... Well, what you want more? Well, unfortunately it was already sold out but, I had the chance to receive at my office the Empire Emerald Green.It’s already a chance because the watch is really really nicely made.In green, with its small strap fits better my girlfriend’s wrist than mine, but I have to admit that I really love it… and for many reasons. Vario is the brainchild of Ivan Chua, a graphic designer from Singapore. We know him from the super cool straps that he produce under his Vario brand, and now with these really…

The WOW effect of the Kaal Multiverse

The WOW effect of the Kaal Multiverse

Review
These last days I had the chance to try the Kaal Multiverse and honestly it’s a stunner. If you want a conversation piece at reasonable price, then this one is for you. You can find the different variations of the Multiverse collection on their website at the Super Early Bird price of 380$ (then it will be retail at $699). It’s honestly a good deal compared what you already have on the market… I talk of course of « special design pieces » only. Each of the three watches presented on the Kickstarter camapign are representative of one of the three main aspects of our solar system: the Earth, its Moon and our Sun (or better named Earth for Gaea, Sun for Sol, and Moon for Artemis).  Alvin Lew, co-owner of the brand,…

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…
