Well.. Just wanted to leave you guys a note to let you know I will be on Vacation! I will be on my honeymoon since I will be getting married tomorrow. I will be checking email on and off but will likely not be updating the site too much.

For any questions or anything of that sort.. please try out the forums if you have not used it before:

In recognition of Canada Day, I’ll just make a short post to mention a Canadian Watch Company named Halios. Halios only has one model, the Holotype. It is a 300m rated Diver in the vein of the legendary Seiko Divers such as the Tuna Can and Samurai Divers.

The watches come in PVD and Stainless steel configurations, and start at $325. Sapphire Crystals, 316L Stainless Steel and Japanese Miyota Automatic movements are just some of the features.

I was asked if I had any interest reviewing one of the watches, but we haven’t ironed out any details yet. Perhaps soon we will feature a Review! For now all you get are pics.


Concord’s unique and hot-looking C1 Chronograph’s get a facelift with some new color combinations and some beautiful Crocodile straps that will bring some class out of the brand’s flaship Chronograph.


George at Govberg is a popular guy to buy watches from on our Breitling Forum, and he has alerted us that they had $500,000 worth of Audemars Piguet watches stolen from them a few days ago. Robbers walked in and sprayed security guards with mase, and smash and grabbed from the AP display case.

Jewelery Robberies are on the rise, even in fair Vancouver where I reside. This is unfortunate, and as people get desparate, such things will continue to happen. Keep these things in mind when considering an online purchase, especially without box and papers for some of these watches.

Archimede launches a new Big(gish) Pilot, the 45mm Automatic pilot, using a automatic swiss ETA 2824-2 Movement. Sort of an in-between size as it is smaller than most of the BP watches that are a 47mm diameter, and bigger than the 42mm varieties. I personally find the 42mm a good size, though a bit more diameter wouldn’t hurt. The 47mm I do find a bit big for my wrists and tastes, so this Archimede might be on my radar, even though I have quite enough pilot watches for now.
