I am happy to announce that I am now officially apart of the worn&wound team. I'll be joining founders Blake and Zach to continue to review watches with the most in-depth images, and videos. REALWatchReview lives on and will occassionally have updates and news, but make sure to bookmark and/or RSS wornandwound.com to get the latest.
REALWatchReview has always had the goal to house the best reviews on the web, and when I met Blake and Zach I saw that they shared the same passion. It only seemed right to join forces and continue to report the latest news on all things watches on the best looking watch site I have ever seen. Thanks to everyone for growing the site to where it is today. I invite you to join in on the conversation and weekly posts over at my new outlet www.wornandwound.com.
Thanks for all your support,
James L. Helms
When you think about, the watch strap is just as important as the watch itself. It can also make or break a watch too, having to be the right color, and it must be comfotable too. Bas & Lokes out of Sydney, Australia hand produces all sorts of leather straps that are custom made to your specific size prefence. There are a lot of strap makers around but Bas & Lokes sticks to a set of features and quality that are like none other.
When I first heard about the Mutewatch, I saw that it was amazingly straightforward in its purpose as well as its design. Developed in Stockholm, Sweden, you can see the Scandinavian design in the look and feel of the product. Using LEDs to timing and vibrations for alerts, its an exercise in blending what a lot of people are starting to use as a watch (their smartphones) and a timing device. This watch review is going to be a bit different, not focusing on movements or whats inside, rather what the watch does for design and function.
When I reviewed the first watch Winder from SPIN-R, I found it to be one of the best thoughout winder products to be introduced to the market. With digital control, battery power and a very nice design it was a immediate win. Now they have stretched that design to handle two watches while adding a few more tweaks to make it even better.
Just in from Australia for review are three straps from Bas & Lokes. If you haven't heard of them before, they are a full scale, all hand-made leather strap shop. They have all sorts of interesting designs and some of the nicest leathers I have ever seen.
