Perhaps my favorite part about the brand is its name: Tool Watch Co. There is no way anyone would be confused as to what the brand is all about--making tool watches. What’s even more impressive is the fact that the brand provides you with all you need to go on an adventure.
Off the Cuff: The Ossington by Locke & King
At first blush, there are a lot of similarities between the brand’s first watch, The James, and this more recent offering. Overall case construction comes to mind. The mid-century styling and the round, wire-like lugs are also familiar. The real differences come in the dial and again in the bezel.
Off the Cuff: Namica Shirahama Dive Watch
Namica is a new watch brand from Japan, and they are hoping to make a splash with their first release: The Shirahama Classic Diver. Shirahama refers to the local white sand beach in Izu, where the watches were conceived and designed. And if you are anything like me, one look at this colourful dial has you imaging warm summer days, sunshine, and lazy afternoons at the water's edge.
