If you are searching for a vintage-styled timepiece, the HVD SpectreDiver Chronograph certainly looks the part. And it is very competitively priced, as well. The handset and dial elements remain true to the design of HVD’s original SpectreDiver. The case, however, receives a few tweaks with finer finish and more subtle chamfering, as well as a deeper lug well. The retro pump pushers look and feel great. The Plexi dome, of course, is a highlight. Chronograph, Retro, Men's Vintage Watch, Watches, Watches For Men, Retro Vibe, Luxury Watch, Time Piece, Watchmaker

Lorier knows vintage. Their core collection reflects the classic age of watchmaking, oozing 1950s motifs and breathing new life into hallmark designs. Since the 2018 release of the Neptune—itself a reinvention of the mid-century skin diver—Lorenzo and Lauren Ortega have proceeded with a savvy singularity: to democratize the watch-purchasing process through the creation of the elusive “one watch collection.” Although we have had the opportunity to review both the popular Hyperion and Falcon in the past, the Lorier Astra—the brand’s most recent inventive—may well be the closest they have come to achieving this lofty goal.

Most microbrands are headed up by savvy entrepreneurs. Not many are founded by actual watchmakers. However, the Galvin Watch Company is an exception to this rule.  Headquartered in Australia, the brand is run by Susan Galvin, who previously plied her trade at the likes of TAG Heuer and OMEGA. Launched in 2020, The Galvin Watch Company is steeped in the mythology of the northern Lapland area of Finland–where Susan spent her childhood. The Nordic sense of austerity and minimalism shines through in this third collection, the Galvin SUVI. Austerity, Tag Heuer, Watch Companies, Custom Fit, Steel Hardware

The Tusenö Shellback V2 hits a little like the Seiko SPB143/7 in its sizing and in the way it wears. It’s solid. You feel its presence always on your wrist. It’s unmistakably a purpose-driven diver. However, the value presented by the Shellback V2 is unarguably superior (and I love the 63MAS reissues). You get a lumed ceramic bezel; a far better bracelet with “on-the-fly” comfort adjust; and a more accurate movement. The Shellback V2 dial is also a very thoughtful design that brings a hint of luxury to the watch. Its custom handset is a highlight. So is the lume.

The watch is a departure of sorts in terms of styling. Christoper Ward released its first moonphase, the C9, in 2015 and four years later, they issued the C1 Moonglow as a follow up. Both take a decidedly more classic approach. By comparison, the C1 Moonphase presents a much more minimalistic and—by extension—futuristic design.

Both the FLX001 and the FLX002 use gilt-styled printing in the chapter ring over matte black backgrounds. They also share a handset that is quintessential skindiver, found in Blancpain’s aforementioned 3H Bund, but also in several Squales. The bold pencil-styled handset with its two tones, is highly legible—as are the plots and numerals on either dial, despite their aged appearance. The C3 Super-LumiNova is “Old Radium Lume,” and offers a particularly vintage appeal. Two Tones, Cuff, Gilt, Matte Black
