Microbrand Manchester Watch Works created a line of homage watches that pay tribute to the most iconic designs. The Iconik 1 is a homage of the Panerai Luminor line of dive watches with it’s own unique design. The watch is limited to just 100 and has long sold out. You may find one for sale on the secondary market as they pop ever so often.

– Case Diameter: 41.0 mm
– Case Length: 50.0 mm
– Case Thickness: 11.6 mm

The Iconik 1 features a cushion case, a fixed bezel, and a 41mm in diameter case. The 41mm case is perfect for my 7 inch wrist and is welcome compared to some of the larger Panerai watches. While the Manchester Watch Works Iconik 1 is a homage to the Luminor line of watches, it still has a unique design all to it’s own.

The domed crystal gives the watch a very readable dial and AR coating provides reduced reflection in direct sunlight. The MWW logo is found on the dial as well as the crown of the watch. The dial is a minimalist delite with 3, 6, 9 and 12 large hour markers. The C3 Superluminova is about average on this watch and I would have like a little better lume. The leather strap is thick and has the Panerai styling to it. It does look a bit weird with the smaller 41 inch case with this huge and thick leather strap. The Seiko Instrument Automatic NH35A movement is inside and comparable to the Miyota automatic movements such as the 9015.

If you are looking for Panerai style watch at a low cost then the Manchester Watch Works Iconik 1 would be a wise choice. The MWW Iconik is just original enough not to be a direct copy of the Panerai Luminor watches. The quality of the watch is quite good for a Micro Brand Watch and I believe will be a great addition to anyone’s collection.

I was looking for a leather strap for a change pace when I get sick of wearing a bracelet for my Omega Seamaster Pro. I have never owned a Shell Cordovan strap although I did own a pair of Allen Edmonds Fifth Street boots in Shell Cordovan. I found that Shell Cordovan is best leather you can own. Unlike cow leather, Shell Cordovan doesn’t crease and last a lifetime while still looking new. The Da Luca Mayhem 20mm Shell Cordovan strap gives my Omega watch a luxury feel that can be worn casual or dressy.

Da Luca is one of my favorite leather strap brands as I have always been impressed with the quality even if you are paying a bit of premium for it, it is well worth it in my opinion. The Mayhem Shell Cordovan strap is surprisingly soft and comfortable to wear. It is not too thick on the wrist and pairs perfectly with the SMP watch. This strap is color 8 which is a dark maroon color that has a dark reddish brown color to it.

Shell Cordovan made from horsehide is the best quality of leather and Da Luca has created a watch strap that will last a lifetime with little maintenance. This is the kind of strap that will only get better with age and form to your wrist. If you are looking for a watch strap that will last and look amazing paired with your high end watch then give the Da Luca Mayhem 20mm Shell Cordovan strap a try.

If you are in the market for a quality Quartz diver with a 1000M water resistance rating then this watch by Phoibos maybe an option. The PHOIBOS Men’s PX005B 1000M Dive Watch build quality is quite good with a nice heft to the watch with it’s rubber strap. The Swiss Quartz Ronda 515 movement will provide accurate time with little to no maintenance outside of changing the battery after a few years use. The 43MM case is big but not huge and fits my 7 inch wrist nicely.

The watch passed 1000m water resistance test by China National Horological Quality Supervison and Test Center so it can be use as a real dive watch. Of course many people will use this as a desk diver only using it in water such as swimming and in shower. The watch features premium Sapphire Crystal Glass, Super-LumiNavo C3 luminous hands & markers that you want not find in watches at this price range. The watch also has Helium Release Valve at 2 o’clock position, with waterproof screw down crown.

Overall a great budget diver watch that can be bought for only $180.00. This is quite impressive price for a 1000m water resistance dive watch. The lume is solid on this watch, and the fit and finish is quite good for the price. It has a quite good features and would be a perfect everyday workhorse watch.
