Les's Watch Reviews



Latest Additions:


Watches have always had a fascination for me ever since I received my first one at the age of eight. I haven't got that one any more, but I have kept every other one I've either been given or bought since then. I'm especially interested in mechanical watches, but electronic ones are so useful and convenient it's hard to ignore them! Here are some of my thoughts about those watches—and of some vintage ones I've 'borrowed', which form the 'occasional series' of reviews. I keep adding to this list so come back every now and then to see what's new.
