Review: S.U.F Helsinki Vetehinen, A killer divewatch from an independent brand

S.U.F Helsinki is a small, independent watch brand that produces approximately 100 timepieces each year. S.U.F actually stands for ‘Sarpaneva Uhren Fabrik’, and if you know your independent watch brands and/or watchmakers, that first word should immediately grab your attention. You see, S.U.F is actually the second watch brand of well-respected Finnish watchmaker Stepan Sarpaneva, and, with the launch of Vetehinen, the brand now has its first divewatch.

Lets not mince words, the Vetehinen is handsome.

Review: Montblanc 1858 Manual Small Second, A charming timepiece for not a lot of money

Under the stewardship of industry veteran Jérôme Lambert, Montblanc has been making headway with a larger volume of serious watch collectors and enthusiasts.

Review: A. Lange & Söhne Saxonia Moon Phase, A Watch With Serious Heart

The Saxonia collection has been a part of A. Lange & Söhne’s history since the brand had its rebirth in 1994. Today the collection serves multiple purposes – the most inexpensive Lange can be found in this collection (still mechanical) but you can also turn to this collection if you want seriously complicated watches. The Saxonia Moon Phase that we’re reviewing today was unveiled at SIHH 2016 – we thought it was brilliant back then and now, after spending some more time with it, we’re completely taken with it.

This is one of the best looking moonphase watches of 2016 in our book.

Review: Heuer Monza Calibre 17

Tag Heuer announced the 2016 Heuer Monza Calibre 17 at BaselWorld this year, to mark and celebrate the Monza’s 40th anniversary. It’s a watch that we’ve been itching to get our hands on ever since we saw pictures of it, and thankfully the opportunity came knocking just a few weeks ago.

We wore the Monza so much, we had to pull the crown out to stop the running seconds, so we could avoid blurry hands in our photographs.
