The Mido Decompression timer 1962 ltd edition is a watch that simply exists to make us happy. It has many great functions, such as the famous decompression timer dial, a rotating bezel and even time keeping functionality… of sorts.

The stunning Halios Seaforth pastel blue. It sold out over and over until three editions were all gone. Still sought after today, it's still possible to get one. The question is, should you? I cover this in my video here.
I don’t love homages usually but I decided to hand over some of my hard earned money at a recent AliExpress sale for the version 4 of this watch. This one has a slightly different crystal and a new logo. So is it any good? Let’s have a look.
The Tudor Pelagos is the most comfortable watch that I own and it gets more wrist time than any other piece. I love it. I took my time reviewing the watch since I really wanted to give a long term perspective on the watch. Spoiler alert, it's great.
As you see in the video, this is well worn and loved. A few small scratches does not bother me. Check out the full review here.
I'm excited to bring more of my watch collection to youtube in future, here's my first video under my own name, of the beautiful Halios Fairwind Bathyal Blue. If you enjoy this video, please like and subscribe :)
The party trick is the silhouettes of Manta Ray just underneath the surface of the dark blue ocean. It’s incredibly subtle, don’t expect anybody to see these without having them pointed out. Much like manta ray, or even small sting rays in real life, they don’t exactly advertise their presence, but rather gently glides near the bottom of the ocean and a silhouette may be all you ever see. It’s a beautiful touch and it’s the reason I bought the watch.

Are you like me and merely diving to 1500 metres is a bit pedestrian? Well, I have some news for you. Say hello to Sinn's U2 EZM5. The ultimate badass watch that will gladly beat up all your other watches.
What is it like to wear, own and use this watch in a normal every day life? Is it worth owning even if the extent of your water activities is snorkeling at 50cm?

I researched this for a long time before I bought it...or at least I tried to! There's not a lot out there in terms of in depth reviews. So, time to change that!
If you're looking at buying this good homage to the Omega Seamaster 300, then hopefully this will help you.

Should you take a Seiko watch seriously that has such a silly nickname? Well, I believe you should. I'd also say it's fairly imperative to consider obtaining one before they are discontinued too!

Is this the most fit for purpose dive watch ever made? I can’t speak for every diver over the years of course, but I have a strong suspicion that it might be. There are so many small details that seem to be there to help with under water activities, you just couldn’t go wrong. But, is it fit for desk diving?

Seemingly a controversial release based on basically not being the SKX007... Does it deserve to be dismissed by watch collectors out there? Anything wrong with an updated movement, hacking & manual wound movement?
I don't think so and I think it's worth reading this owner's review if you're considering one. Read review here.
The Unimatic Modello Uno (U1-FN) does have a great utilitarian feel to it. The reduced lines and numbers on the bezel suits the watch perfectly. I also like the smaller hour markers on the watch and, the DLC coating that makes it all black, is lovely. What is it like to wear and live with every day? Read my full review here.
The best Seiko nickname and awesome design. Yes, it has a movement that is made in Malaysia and would need some small adjustments at least weekly to tell exact time, and a Hardlex crystal. But…it’s the ‘Samurai’(!) and look at that awesome lug design! It has a tsunami wave logo on the back! Sold.

A rather problematic Kickstarter campaign did eventually yield a solid watch. It is the least extreme design of the lot and if you like these sorts of watches, a solid buy. Before you do go and buy your own LIV watch, I'd highly recommend reading my full reivew here.
I review watches that I own, there are no paid reviews here. I want to give you an honest view of what it's like to live with these watches.More about me.
