Halios Tropik B – Uneven Patina Makes It Look Dirty

Although technically a dive watch, Halios’ new Tropik B could easily find a home as a dress watch. By using aluminum bronze for its case and bezel, the Tropik B exhibits subtle yellow tones. That alloy combination delivers extreme strength and increased corrosion resistance; it will develop a grey patina over time. A sturdy Miyota 9015 engine powers the whole handsome package.

Note the patina on the bezel. Its uneven and it makes the watch looks dirty. This is why I shun bronze.


English watchmaker Speake-Marin introduces the Spirit MK II DLC

The three-dimensional, black matte watch features numerals and hour markers in white Super-LumiNova, which contrast against the light-absorbing finished case, making it easy to refer to. This watch has an automatic movement.

With the help of a second barrel, the watch has a five-day power reserve. The dial is framed by a hand-finished circular grained bezel and the 42mm sandblasted stainless steel case is coated with anthracite DLC. The case back is solid and slightly domed with a message on it that reads “fight, love & persevere”.

Muhle-Glashutte 29er Chronograph can be easily mistaken as a normal chronograph

Mühle-Glashütte watches are made in Germany by a company who specializes in “Nautische Instrumente” – nautical instruments and timekeeping systems for ships. It measures 42.5 mm across and 11.5 mm tall. The case and bracelet are all stainless steel.

In all honesty, this is the first time I’ve heard about this company. I could easily mistaken this watch to be a plain chronograph.
