Latest Microbrand Watch World News
Not everyday you will get to see brands producing or designing watch of case diameter smaller than 40mm these days. I am fortunate to be in a country where there are so many new and old microbrands in the watch industry, so Vario is no exception.
For today’s hands-on review, I would like to introduce a new brand from Singapore, MMI Watches and they have just launched their first model – DUMBO on kickstarter.
Not long ago I reviewed a BLWRX and a Neymar dive watch; both brands are from the same manufacturer. I found both to be homages of amazing value.. For this review I have one of their newest models, the BLWRX 42mm automatic with magnified date and interchangeable bezel.
So, I basically dropped Chris an email, telling him how big of an influencer I am with 10 followers on my instagram and at least 7 of ’em will see my photos and like ’em.

When I heard that Trifoglio Italia is about to release a new collection, I asked… What’s it called, and Alessandro Baldieri (the brand owner) said… “Mate“… i’m like “Ya…?”
As many new watch brands tend to do, Alpha watch designs are primarily of famous watches from brands like Rolex and Omega. For this review I have their automatic GMT Pepsi model, a beautiful, generally well made rendition of what can best be described as a merger of a Rolex GMT and a Tudor Heritage Black Bay.
Photos have the magical power to make moments last forever.. I have been given the honour to write a review about TACS Automatic Vintage Lens 2 (AVL 2) watch which is a special timepiece amalgamating the magic of freezing time and a unique wrist piece.
Kudos again to Zoid for being bold with the design as usual with their collection thus far.
Monsieur kickstarted their 1st edition back in 2017 with a successful campaign (Monsieur ALLIAGE Series). This year, they will be launching a 2nd campaign on Kickstarter with the Monsieur RANOMO Series. (RANOMO – racing mono tones) Providing affordable watches with quality is what Monsieur Watches aims for with each series.
