The Innovative Meccaniche Veloci Chrono Driver Evo Watch

by John Sealander  

Leave it to Meccaniche Veloci to Introduce the First
Real Improvement to the Driver’s Watch in 75 Years

Meccaniche Veloci WatchesThe driver’s watch first gained popularity in the late 1930’s. These innovative designs featured curved cases that were designed to be worn on the side of the wrist, instead of on top, like a normal wristwatch. This unconventional configuration placed the dial in line with the base of the thumb, so drivers could easily read the time without turning their arm or letting go of the steering wheel. Although wearing a watch on the side of your wrist felt strange to many, racing drivers loved these innovative timepieces because they made rally timekeeping extremely quick and convenient.

Meccaniche Veloci Chrono Driver Evo Watch - Dial ViewOver time, wearing a watch on the side of your wrist fell out of fashion and drivers watches began to emulate the style that aviators preferred, with extra large, simple round dials worn on top of the wrist. To make these conventional displays more readable while driving, manufacturers often re-oriented the dial so that twelve was in the normal 3 o’clock position.

Meccaniche Veloci is one of few manufacturers to recognize the wisdom of the original driver designs that manufacturers like Gruen and Hamilton pioneered in 1937. Instead of wearing the watch on the side of your wrist, they have developed a unique gimbaled brancard mounting that allows the entire case to be quickly and easily rotated to various angles by the driver for optimum visibility under any driving conditions.

The revolutionary Meccaniche Veloci Chrono Driver Evo Watch that was introduced at Baselworld 2013 gives today’s drivers the best of both worlds. Like early driver’s watches, the dial can be easily tilted to provide drivers with a perfect viewing angle without taking their eye off the road or their hands off the wheel. Like today’s popular driver styles, the Chrono Driver Evo has an oversized, clearly readable dial with full chronometer functionality.

To facilitate timing rally events, Meccaniche Veloci has positioned the Chrono Driver Evo’s chronograph pushers on either side of a top mounted winding crown at 12 o’clock. This practical configuration makes it much easier for drivers to start and stop the chronograph while driving. With a large red sweep second hand, a chronometer minute counter at 9 o’clock, a 12-hour counter at 3 o’clock, and a small continuous seconds sub-dial at 6 o’clock, this remarkable watch is well equipped for timing events of almost any duration.

The Defiant Viceroy Rebel Watch Collection

Viceroy Rebel


by Adrian Herscovici  

Rebel Yell

Viceroy WatchesViceroy is an ambitious watch brand known for its sporty and stylish designs. The brand is also popular for infusing its timepieces with ample personality, allowing fans to express their individuality. The Rebel collection is a perfect example.

Watches in the Viceroy Rebel collection include a stainless steel model (432121-15) and a black ion-plated stainless steel model (432119-55). They two watches share several attributes in addition to square, stainless steel cases: both watches are powered by quartz movements, employ mineral glass crystals and are built to be water resistant to a depth of 165 feet. The black model is a hair larger than the steel model at 44 mm and 43 mm respectively.

Buy Viceroy Rebel Watch CollectionThese Rebels also share certain design elements, including screw heads that appear in the four corners on the front side of the case. The black version carries this detail over to the dial, using applied screw-head markers as hour counters. Both watches have skeletonized hour and minute hands with large, luminous arrowhead tips. The Viceroy logo is printed on both watches below the 12, but our attention is drawn to the collection name “Rebel Men” printed at 6 o’clock. The name appears in the collection’s signature calligraphic font; more importantly, the words are printed askew to reflect the independent spirit of the collection.

Even with these similarities, each watch has its own look. The steel model, with less black in the design and a brown leather strap, is visually layered and has more contrasting elements. It also has a date function that is practical for daily wear. The three-dimensional dial is mostly gray, with black and white elements throughout. The hour numerals are large and white except at 2, 6 and 10 o’clock, where the numerals are replaced with solid bars that have the effect of separating the numerals symmetrically into three sections of three. A handy inside track shows military hours from 13 through 24. The second hand is red with an arrowhead tip that complements the look of the hour and minute hands.

The black ion-plated model is more dominant in its appearance, which is a result of the profusion of black. The only other color incorporated into the watch is white; it is used to fill the markers on the bezel including the four points of a compass (N, S, E and W), and on the dial. The appearance of the dial is quite orderly as a result. This model has no date function. The black ion-plated Viceroy Rebel has a black leather strap with a cracked, distressed appearance, and a matching ion-plated tang buckle. Like the stainless steel model, this watch has a solid stainless steel caseback.

Buy Viceroy Rebel Watch CollectionTimepieces in the Viceroy Rebel Watch Collection express an edgy, leader-of-the-pack outlook on life. The watches are rugged and mechanical in appearance with a contemporary design geared towards men with a daring sense of self. Men like you. Purchase your new Viceroy watch from an authorized Viceroy dealer.

Hush Puppies Cuff Watch Collection


by John Sealander  

Hush Puppies Cuff Collection: With its vintage military cuff strap and authentic retro dial, this is about as close as you’re going to get to the good old days.

Hush Puppies WatchesEarly wristwatches used to be simple and direct. They were equipped with a large readable dial and a substantial wide band. There was a reason for this. Early wristwatches were often fitted with a “cuff” style strap that had a wider back piece under the watch, which reinforced the narrower strap that went around the wrist. This type of strap became quite popular with the military officers who were among the first to wear wristwatches instead of carrying a pocket watch. Cuff straps were comfortable and very secure.

Buy Hush Puppies Cuff CollectionLarge, readable dials were also a popular feature in many vintage watches, because readability was critical for the military officers and adventurers who initially made the wristwatch popular. Now Hush Puppies has brought back the best of this vintage vibe with their new Cuff Collection timepieces.

All Hush Puppies Cuff Collection timepieces are equipped with a thick, genuine leather cuff style band. The wide leather “cuff” protects the watch from damage and is very comfortable on your wrist for extended periods of time. Complementing the black or brown cuff style band is an authentic vintage dial with big, readable numbering and an extra wide minute scale on the chapter ring. To complete the vintage vibe is the original 1958 Hush Puppies logo at 6 o’clock.

The retro look and feel of the 35 mm Hush Puppies Cuff watch looks fabulous with the latest casual styles. Like the famous pigskin suede shoes that inspired them, Hush Puppies timepieces never go out of style. Young people love the retro styling, and if you’re old enough, you quickly recognize that a Hush Puppies timepiece is the real McCoy.

Buy Hush Puppies Cuff CollectionThe Hush Puppies Cuff features a three-hand configuration with a large sweep second hand. The watch is powered by a precision Japanese quartz movement and comes with a durable stainless steel case and scratch resistant mineral glass crystal. This combination of authentic vintage styling with a reliable, modern quartz movement gives Hush Puppies fans the best of both worlds. You get an accurate, dependable timepiece that looks straight out of the 1950’s.

Calibre Hawk Diver Watch Collection


by John Sealander  

Calibre Hawk: Divers, Drivers, and Pilots
Will Love these Stylish Timing Tools

Calibre WatchesDiver’s watches have an iconic style all their own. Traditionally, diver’s watches feature a large bezel that is clearly marked with a 60-minute scale. These bold, easily distinguishable minute markings on the watch face are mandatory, since most dives are less than an hour in length. This is why the minutes are much more prominent on a diving watch than the hour markings. When you’re under water, every minute counts. It is also important that the watch be readable in total darkness. Of course, all diving watches must be water resistant to at least 330 feet, but nobody has said they needed to be stylish.

This collection of exciting diver’s style timepieces will appeal to divers, drivers, and even pilots. These precision timing tools are not only extremely functional; they’re fabulously fashionable as well. There are a variety of Hawk models available, including a rugged, sporty three–hand configuration with a date window at 4 o’clock and a chronograph model for those who need to time events.

A brightly colored chapter ring divides the large diver’s style bezel on all Calibre Hawk timepieces from the extra wide luminous indices, creating a dial that is both attractive and extremely readable. Even the hour and minute hands are skeletonized to improve readability under difficult conditions.

Buy Calibre Hawk CollectionAttention to detail is evident everywhere you look on these superb timepieces. The luminous indices are extra wide and the second hand is tipped with red for improve visibility. The precision quartz movement is cased in a solid block of stainless steel that is water resistant to 330 feet. Four dramatic oversized bolts are used to fasten the comfortable black caoutchouc strap to the case. The chronograph model also includes three well-placed sub-dials to time events and a pair of black pushers that flank the protected stainless steel crown.
