Off the Cuff: Galvin Loimu

Loimu, translated from Finnish, means blaze. And I can hardly think of a better name for this collection. Microbrands, right on up through Rolex, have been very creative with their colourways in the past year. However, the spectrum on offer from Galvin is one of the best I've ever seen. There isn't dud among them. Even the Artic Black positively glows. And their names...Frost, Tundra, Glacier...such an insignificant detail, really, but so much a part of the story Galvin is hoping to create with this line.

Off the Cuff: RZE Resolute 2022

Almost a year ago to the day, I received my first look at the RZE Resolute--the brand's popular titanium field watch. Just last week I received its successor--the Resolute 2022. Clearly born from the same DNA, the all-new Resolute is still an ultra-durable field watch wrought from titanium and 8 times harder than 316L stainless steel. It's light weight and fashioned for exploration. Like a fighter, it's been training in the off-season and is back--slim, trim and prepared to take a beating.
