Minus-8 is one of those names you rarely hear or see being worn out in the wild. That's because they're a small time brand, and small indie brands really want to get noticed and rightfully so, which results in some really interesting looking timepieces that more often than not offer a great deal of value for your money. That's the case with Minus-8 and its newest offering - the Square Chrono. It's an aviation-inspired, Bell & Ross style timepiece we think is a complete stunner and at an affordable price point too. The Square Chrono combines the best of both worlds with its 40mm, solid squared-off casing made out of beautifully finished matte stainless steel and distinctive round watch face covered with a sapphire crystal.Read More
In search for a stand-out, cool looking wrist watch? Ziiiro's line of watches is anything but conventional. Ziiiro is a fairly new company, and compared to the well known giants, Ziiiro's unique design concept for its watches is like a small ecstasy pill with a smiley face on it. So if manly thrusting watches like Tissot's PRS 516 don't tickle your fancy, let Ziiiro sort you out with one of its eye-grabbing watches. The Celeste is the company's latest analog watch with a watch face so uncommon, it's a mind-bender to interpret at first glance. But first, you will have to part with $205 from your pile of cash in order to get yourself one. After that, you might like to know that the Celeste is made entirely out of stainless steel, so it's pretty hefty for its fragile-looking size.Read More
Other than displaying the time, date and chronograph instruments, a watch says a lot about the person who wears it. Since way back when, timepieces were and still continue to be an important accessory one can wear. And although you may wear a fancy watch, you'll end up reaching for your smartphone to tell the time more often than not. It's a habit that came to be as a result of modern society. But some of us feel weirdly incomplete without wearing one. And we're not ashamed to admit that we too reach deep into our pockets for that conveniently back-lit digital clock that just so happens to be our everything device.
Our hands-on today includes the Swiss-made PRS 516 watch by a company called Tissot. You may or may not recall the name immediately, but chances are that you've seen one of their watches at a watch boutique and just about everywhere watches are sold. Tissot has been around for years and they've been in the Swiss watch making biz since 1853, which is proudly stamped on every watch face Tissot makes.Read More
