Tribute to the Banana Vs. L’ocean

If there is one «Boutique» brand that has achieved a cult status over the years that is CREPAS. At a rate of one edition per year and 300 (+/-100) units every time it is no wonder that in the resale market these fetch at least their sale price and in many cases go well over...

El Puro “Gilionto”

A todos los que fumamos puros en algún momento de nuestra vida nos ha llegado el cuñao/amigo/socio con la oferta de ese “PURAZO” recién llegado que nadie puede conseguir, torcido encima del muslo de la mulata cubana (mito estúpido), exclusivamente reservado para unos pocos, los elegidos, los más de lo más… que además «él» ha...

Avo Uvezian «Short Robusto – Syncro Nicaragua»

Even if I am an Avo Uvezian fan I must admit that I am not a big Nicaraguan tobacco fan. I had low expectations and unfortunately at at first glance even those where not met. I am really not a fan of this pressed form factor and the relatively small size of this Short Robusto...

«Gaytán» by Javier Aranda Revuelta

Muy recomendable en Madrid, «Gaytán» by Javier Aranda. Un viaje de sabores y una experiencia Michelin muy interesante. Un espacio enfrentado a una cocina abierta para pode disfrutar de la elaboración de la comida. Un menu «serio» con vino por un precio más que contenido para una estrella Michelin. Todavía no ha cumplido un año pero es posible que acabara siendo si duda...

Ophion «960»

The «960» is the first creation of this new brand and almost an instant overnight classic if you ask me. Merging a classic theme with modern touches worked charms in this case. Especially the lumen on the steeply slanted inner bezel. Details like this sometimes go a long way and create unique traits. It has...

Puro d’Oro, no more…

It is with great sadness to see that one of Davidoff‘s best, the «Puro d’Oro» has been discontinued. An fantastic tobacco with the extraordinary Davidoff quality. Hands down my favourite non-Cuban cigar. I guess that the Puro d’Oro was caught between both worlds. A Dominican cigar marketed and made for traditional Cuban smokers. A very notable attempt at capturing new...

Oversize Watches & Average Size Wrists

Now it is time for us in the northern hemisphere to rollup our sleeves and take the «oversize» watches out for some wrist-time. One problem for many are heavy/large watches and how the crown digs into the back of your hand. A simple rope band will help with that. First know that I am not...

INDICATOR by Colibrica Design

It is my first “Russian” and I could not be happier. Taking all other considerations aside, the “INDICATOR” has a certain aura that makes it a very unique watch. Keeping the concept as authentic as possible by having a Poljot movement and not going the «ETA-way» is the right decision even if the later is a superior movement....

Andersmann «Deep Sea-ANN0913»

The 3000 meter challenge I usually leave some time before I write review about a piece, even if it is a brief recess this helps me to get a good idea on the performance of the tested watch. However, I admit that I am very impressed with this Andersmann «Deep Sea-ANN0913». I have spend well...

Panerai «GULF»: Un Rey entre los Regata?

Muchos que me conocen saben de sobra que si algo no soy en un Paneristi (la verdad es que hace tiempo que ya no soy ningún “isti” de ningún tipo…). Pero si reconozco que si un reloj me podría convencer de lo contrario seria sin duda uno de los relojes que más me ha sorprendido...
