Two gentlemen from Adelaide went on a quest to create the best sailcloth watch bands on the market. The result? Artem Straps. Rumour has it that aside from the practical concerns of durability and comfort, the creators considered how the material interacted with light, how it felt when you passed over it with your fingers. Sounds like something an artist might do. I wonder where they got the name?
The Linden is the second watch produced in Visitor's Calligragh line of timepieces. The collection, which includes the original Duneshore and the latest Duneshore Shallows, is inspired by creator Phil Rodenbeck's love for pens and calligraphy, in general. Inherent in such an influence is a certain degree of elegance. The Linden offers just that.
The YEMA Superman Worldtime builds on the reputation of its "indestructible" Superman Heritage dive watch (a near perfect reproduction of the 1963 icon), and more recently on the ETA-powered Superman Heritage GMT (2019). The main difference here--other than colourways--is the introduction of the YEMA 3000, an all-new in-house GMT movement from the brand.
