Rubicon AI reachings it’s Kickstarter funding goal


New watch startup Rhynofit Inc is on a roll. After successfully funded their first watch, the company has funded the second Rubicon Cockpit watches. The company has reached it’s $50,000 goal and surpassed to $52,730 with still 30 days to go.

Rynofit was created by Rico Adams, and was inspired by some military event or equipment domestic or foreign. After the smashing hit of the Rubicon Big 50, Rynofit has announced the new Rubicon AI, which is available in 44mm and 50mm sizes. I like the fact the company decided to expand to 44mm as everyone can’t wear 50mm on their wrists.

The Rubicon AI will be powered by the Miyota, but the retail version will feature a Swiss automatic movement. Pledge to this Kickstarter campaign HERE

Martenero Model I: Ace Watch Review


Martenero is a new startup based in New York City, making small batch watches. The company has release two models at launch with the Ace and Founder available now. The Ace and Founder watches are limited to 1000 pieces before they are retired for new models. Each watch can be had for under $500 at $485 and custom made to order.



The watch I review here is the Model I Ace watch that is a re-imagination of the classic pilot watch. The classic watch is perfect for the office, special occasions and for casual affairs. The Martenero Ace can be configured with dial color, hands and choice of leather or nato straps. The configuration I have is the gray dial with white hands and leather brown strap. Martenero allows you to quickly configure the watch that you want in minutes. The company sources the parts and then assembles the watch here in the U.S.A.








The Martenero Ace features a 42mm case that is my sweet spot when it comes to size. I think the size works with both smaller and larger wrist sizes. At 12 o’clock you will find the Martenero logo with Arabic numerals at 3, 6, and 9. The watch is powered by a Miyota 821A automatic movement that has a 45 hour power reserve. Both the front and back of the Martenero Ace features Sapphire crystal. The crown is screw down and provides 100m water resistance. The leather strap is made of super soft leather that is very comfortable. Martenero backs each watch with a two year warranty and the warranty card includes signature of it’s founders and email contact information. The manual is available online at www.martenero.com/ownersguide


The Martenero Ace is no iWatch, it is a mechanical watch that was inspired by the past with a modern twist. The Martenero Ace is a wonderful timepiece that wears great on the wrist. I believe the fit and finish of the watch makes it every bit worth the price tag.

Lüm-Tec Abyss 600m-2 Watch Review



The Lum-Tech Abyss 600m-2 is the latest watch from USA based company that is bringing high quality watches to the market with affordable prices. The 600m-2 is an oversized watch at 48mm excluding the crown, with the Miyota 9015 automatic movement and uses MDV Technology C3 luminous. The Lum-Tech Abyss 600m-2 is only limited to 150 so you will own a very rare timepiece.





The Lum-Tech Abyss 600m-2 is the perfect blue watch with blue sunray dial. It features an amazing 600M water resistance. The Abyss features a Black leather strap with blue stitch, providing a nice contrast and matches the blue dial. The All Japan made Miyota 9015 automatic movement is widely consider one of the top movements available and comparable to the Selitta’s and ETA movements.




The packaging includes a cardboard outer box that reveals a lacquer wooden display box. You will see a metal Lum-Tec logo plate. Inside the box you will find a warranty card, certificate of authenticity and user manual. The packaging for this watch is all first rate and has a luxury feel to it.




Blue is my favorite color so I have to own at least one blue sunray dial in my collection. The dial on the Abyss really shines while being very legible. The Abyss has a sapphire crystal with double AR coating to keep the watch looking new without having a bunch of scratches.



The Lum-Tech Abyss 600m-2 is a large watch, but I didn’t mind the size of the watch as it was so beautifully crafted. The larger size of the watch will appeal to a lot of guys that find smaller watches not fit well on their wrist. The watch also benefited to being bigger to accommodate the 600M rating when most popular dive watches only reach 200M to 300M.


I was really impressed with the lume of the Lum-Tech watch. Thanks to the MDV Technology C3 luminous, a simple light source like the sun or flashlight makes the watch glow for a good amount of time. Lume freaks will appreciate the C3 luminous paint that makes the dial hands, markers and numbers glow.



This is my first Lum-Tec watch and I am surprised by the high quality of the watch for less than $1000. I purchased a Tag Heuer Dive Watch recently that retails for $2,200. I actually prefer the bold and striking Lum-Tec to the Tag any day of the week. The Lum-Tec Abyss 600M-2 has the right balance of size, precision (Miyota 9015) and lume. The Lum-Tech Abyss 600M-2 is available now for $795.00.
