21 Best Watch Blogs

By in Fashion, Featured, Watches on

Sending you to other blogs, again? You must think we’re mad. Well, we are. Mad about style. Mad about gear. And today we’re mad about watches.

A good watch isn’t just an extension of style; it’s an extension of you. So it pays to know what your watch says about you, right? That’s why we’ve decided to share with you a list of the 21 best watch blogs to fill your boots with no-bullshit timepiece news and information. Sound good?

Before we even delve into the list, a great app (for iPhone, Android and now a site) for you to keep up on all the latest Horology based news and information is Watchville. It’s something we can’t recommend enough, but we’ve also include a few extra Australian gems down below not included in the app. That being said, let’s get stuck into the blogs, shall we?

1. Haulogerie

So we’re a little biased with this watch blog if we’re honest, given it’s written by our resident watch expert and author of Man of Many’s The Wind Up, our Watch News column. But that’s not to take away from Dimitri and Haulogerie’s unique perspective on the world of Haute Horologie. It’s a representation of his passion for all things watches and covers everything from new product releases, the latest events and even intricacies in the micro world of mechanics from time to time (excuse the pun). You can also follow Haulogerie on instgram where they’ve racked up an impressive 72k followers at the time of writing.

2. Watch-Next

Spurned out of the media behemoth Fairfax, Watch-Next was founded by Bani McSpedden who is renound as “the most widely recognised watch authority in Australia.” He is currently Watch Editor of The Australian Financial Review, Timepiece Editor of World Magazine New Zealand, and watch correspondent for Qantas ‘Australian Way’ magazine and Cathay Pacific in-flight magazines. To be frank, the blog design leaves a lot to be desired but the actual writing and content is golden.

Fratello Watches don’t just write about watches because it’s a hobby. They write about watches because it’s in their blood.

Bridge and Barrel Horology. Style. Cycling. The finer things.

4. Bridge & Barrel

Hailing from Melbourne, Australia, Sid of Bridge & Barrel covers all things horology but also manages to mix in a touch of style and a few other interests common to the modern man. He is right in saying that the style and watches tend to go hand in hand. We love the neighbourhood feel of his writing covering local events out of the great city of Melbourne.

HODINKEE Wristwatch News Reviews Original Stories

5. HODINKEE

The HODINKEE writers go beyond the watch. Although the inner-workings of a watch are important – and they know them in and out – the real feel you get is about the story of the watch. With a target audience of 35 year olds on $250,000 a year, they know they can afford their watches. Instead, they aim to put them to the test and see how a watch applies to life. And, well, occasionally crush them with supercars too.

Revolution Press

11. Revolution

A complete celebration of watches. That’s the only way to describe Revolution; and that, I guess, is why it’s in their strapline. Their journalists not only discuss the watch itself, but the history of the brand and what makes a watch good or bad. They pull no punches. But honest is the best policy when it comes to reviewing finery.
