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…

I started searching for information of the Air King and I ended up joining SGROC (Singapore Rolex Owners Club) forum. From…

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…

Interview Stephen Mansfield – Co-Founder, SNGLRTY

Interview
In recent weeks I have discovered the Swiss brand SNGLRTY and I must admit that I was quite intrigued. On the one hand by the name of the brand and on the other hand by the concept.

Could you tell us a bit about you and about your story with watches?I arrived late to the world of watches.

I was working to try to revitalize a watch brand that had hit…

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…

For those who follow me on the social networks you know the bad thing that happened to me some weeks ago. Someone stole a watch in a package that I received from EZA Watches for a review !! Yes I was soooo upset… The package was opened and unfortunately the watch was stolen. The thief left the case, but no more watch inside.This was a very disturbing situation for me as this was the first time in 11 years of activity in the watch industry that this happened to me.But this was just the start of this bad story. Indeed, some days after that, Adriaan (owner of the brand) decided to send me another sample of the 1972 for a review… But you know what ? The parcel never arrived…

Interview Clément Meynier – Founder of Depancel Watches

Interview
As a lover of beautiful mechanics, I kept an eye on a young French brand which offers watches inspired by cars. I had the chance to interview Clément Meynier who is the founder of Depancel Watches. Hi Clément could you tell us a bit about you and about your story with watches? Hello Jonathan, and thank you for this interview! Originally, I trained as an engineer and worked in a research laboratory in Geneva, called the CERN. I am from the Jura region, near the Swiss border, and I have always been passionate about fine watchmaking and curious to understand how mechanical watches really work. Then, I enrolled at a training center in Geneva to learn watchmaking. It was supposed to be a simple hobby to satisfy my curiosity, but…
