Momentum Watches Review: Solid Timepieces That Just Work

Momentum Watches Review Featured

For many months now, I’ve been dipping my toes into microbrand watches. Some smaller brands, in my opinion, have missed the mark while some have absolutely nailed their vision. Today, we’re going to talk about a microbrand that has hit its mark.

Today, we’re going to talk about Momentum Watches, a Canadian-based company that has made a wide range of timepieces – from dive watches to dress watches.

Momentum Watches Review

 

For this Momentum watches review, we’ll talk about the brief history of the brand, break down the things that we love and don’t love, and review some of the best pieces this brand has to offer.

About Momentum Watches

Momentum Watches Review History

Momentum watches have been around since 1980. As mentioned earlier, Momentum watches is based in Vancouver, Canada. Actually, the company that works on the watches itself is called St. Moritz Watch Corp. However, the company designs, assembles, and services the watches under the Momentum.

The company’s main philosophy is to design and manufacture watches with casual and active but straightforward designs. The company claims that its watches feature excellent waterproof performance at a reasonable price. Most, if not all, of their watches are catered towards people with an active lifestyle.

Many of Momentum’s watches have a familiar and classic design – another thing that’s in-line with their design philosophy. This watch company isn’t looking to buck the trend but it’s a slave to trends either. Momentum focuses on making watches that have quality, functionality, and style.

Momentum Watches Review: Pros and Cons

Is it worth adding a Momentum timepiece to your collection? Here are the things that I love and appreciate about Momentum watches and some aspects that I don’t care about.

What We Love

1. No-Nonsense Design Philosophy

Sometimes, you just have to step back and appreciate what a watch company is trying to do. Momentum is not trying to revolutionize the watch industry with advanced timekeeping mechanisms and space-age construction, their main design philosophy is to make watches for the everyday people.

That’s something that I can get behind.

Momentum watches are something that you can wear and just go about your day. Even their best dive watches and high-end field timepieces have relatively traditional designs but reliable ruggedness. The features on the watches are about as basic as you can get but that’s perfectly fine.

If you are looking for a brand with a no-nonsense approach to their watches, it’s worth looking into what Momentum has to offer.

2. Rugged, Durable Timepieces

In light of Momentum’s philosophy of watches that just works, their timepieces are ultra-rugged, durable, and require little to no maintenance.

Despite not being premium, luxury pieces, many Momentum’s products are made from high-quality components like 316L steel, sapphire crystals, AR coating, and other durable materials. These are watches that can take quite a beating which is why it’s used by many professionals.

As of now, Momentum watches can be found on the wrist of law enforcement, firefighters, coast guards, and military personnel.

3. Looking Good

Momentum watches aren’t going to win any awards when it comes to fresh or innovative designs. However, that’s not to say that the watches aren’t good looking.

In fact, Momentum offers plenty of great-looking watches.

The designs of Momentum watches can be quite derivative but I have no problem wearing them on my wrist. For instance, the Momentum 1M-SP00B6B Atlas Titanium is a nice-looking field watch with a bold and legible dial. The Momentum Fieldwalker Adventure Watch is another watch that features a rock-solid design and is frankly very fashionable.

For certain, you won’t have a problem wearing Momentum watches daily.

4. Reasonable Price Tag

Perhaps the main selling point of Momentum watches is their price tags. These watches won’t cost an arm and leg but you still get a quality timekeeping tool.

The price range for Momentum watches ranges from $99-$300 which is great considering their overall quality. Because of this, Momentum is a good brand for up and coming watch collectors or if you’re in the market for a good gift watch.

There’s simply a lot of watch here for the money.

What We Don’t Love

1. Inconsistencies with Quality

While Momentum units have respectable quality, it’s worth noting that it’s still a microbrand. With that said, I found some quality issues with some Momentum watches I’ve checked.

This is especially true with entry-level models.

This is quite understandable with lower-end models because the company has to cut some corners here and there. Perhaps the most obvious solution to keep the cost down is with the movement. While the Miyota movement gets the job done, I just feel that it could be better while still keeping the cost down. There are also strap quality issues with some of the models.

In general, Momentum watches are well-built, there were just a couple of quality issues that are hard to ignore.

2. Derivative Designs

As mentioned earlier, Momentum’s timepieces are good-looking on their own. However, I must say that most of their designs are rather uninspired.

Many of their design elements look to be lifted from other brands like Seiko and Citizen. Now, there’s nothing wrong with this in general but if you’re looking for an inspired timekeeping tool, Momentum might not be the brand for you.

Don’t expect these watches to be the pinnacle of timekeeping design.

Best Momentum Watches

Of course, we can’t have a Momentum watches review without highlighting some of the best units the brand has to offer. Here are watches that best represent Momentum in my opinion.

1. Momentum Steelix Field Watch

Momentum Watches Review

The Momentum Steelix Field Watch is perhaps one of the most popular watches by Momentum – for good reason.

Rock-Solid Design

The Momentum Steelix Field Watch has caught my eye because it features a design that’s similar to a vintage Seiko. When I got the watch, it looks and feels like a well-constructed unit.

I also tend to gravitate towards black dialed watches so the Steelix is the first model I’ve checked for writing this Momentum watches review. With that said, the dial looks attractive with the charcoal color, bold numerals, and sword-style hands. Legibility is also excellent for this watch which is a must if you’re planning to wear it on the field.

The Steelix does feel a little bit heavy but it’s not that big of a deal once you get used to it. After several adjustments, the watch sits comfortably on my wrist. The nylon band could be better but it’s durable enough for people with an active lifestyle.

Momentum Watches Review

The Steelix Field Watch is one of the more impressive models by Momentum. Plus, it comes with a great price tag and is a great value for money.

2. Momentum M50 Mark II

Momentum Watches Review

The Momentum M50 Mark II is yet another popular piece by the brand. The M50 Mark II is touted by the company as their toughest watch, bar none. It’s a dive that’s good enough for deep-sea exploration, so take that as you will.

From Deep-Sea Diving to Beater

The Momentum M50 Mark II is a great option for a dive watch that won’t break the bank. With a water-resistance rating of 500M / 1650FT, this is a diver that you can reliably wear underwater. It’s no wonder that it has become a prime choice for law enforcement, special forces, firefighters, and EMT professionals.

One of the first things that you’ll notice about the M50 Mark II is its airtight construction. It just feels solid and appropriately rugged. Plus, the scratch-proof sapphire crystal does a great job of protecting the dial. Even if you’re not looking for a dive watch that will serve you underwater, this one makes an excellent beater watch.

For timekeeping and power, the M50 Mark II houses the Japanese Quartz Movement and 10-year battery life for precise timekeeping and longevity. The dial is also fully lumed which comes in handy for low-light conditions like under the ocean.

Overall, the M50 Mark II is very impressive as far as affordable dive watches go.

3. Momentum Atlas Titanium

Lastly, the Momentum Atlas Titanium is another successful creation by this Canadian-based watchmaker. It’s another field watch with a restrained look and a very nice feel to it.

Super Luminous Field Watch

First, the thing that I love the most about the Momentum Atlas Titanium is its size. The 38mm case  is a good size for a field watch such as this. The Atlas Titanium sits nicely on the wrist and it doesn’t hurt that it has a striking yet restrained look.

The face just screams “field watch” style and reminds me of some Hamilton watches. The dial is bold, simple, and legible – the oversized numbers made sure of that. The superluminous hands and numbers look quite nice during low-light conditions. However, the white dial version can be particularly bright.

Of course, you can’t talk about the watch without mentioning the Titanium case. The case is gray, matte-finished titanium. While it looks nice on its own, I would have preferred a brushed finish. As is, the case has like a sort of “plasticky” feel to it. However, it’s hard to complain about titanium cases especially at this price point.

Overall, the Momentum Atlas Titanium is a simple, durable, easy to wear and use field watch. It’s another Momentum watch that offers a great value proposition.

Momentum Watches Review: Are They Any Good?

Momentum Watches Review Featured

Finally, we conclude this Momentum watches review with a verdict.

The watches by Momentum comes highly recommended. This particular microbrand doesn’t break any ground but it doesn’t need to. There are some issues with quality but they’re not enough to make me turn away. There’s just so much watch here for your money.

Momentum watches are stylish, functional, and offers great value. Check them out if you’re in the market for a good entry-level to mid-range watch.

Best Microbrand Watches

1. Halios Seaforth

Best Microbrand Watches Halios Seaforth

Halios is a brand that I have recently discovered and I must say that I am very impressed. This microbrand is known for its dive watches and its most famous offering is the Halios Seaforth.

Big Value Dive Watch

Halios and its flagship Seaforth diver watch have risen to fame on the internet. The brand is basically a one-man operation of Jason Lim out of Vancouver, Canada. It’s a passion project that attracted a lot of attention from the watch community.

It’s a good thing that Lim had an impeccable taste.

The Seaforth is a 41mm steel-cased watch that offers 200m of water resistance and protected with a domed sapphire crystal. If you are a fan of svelte minimal aesthetic, the Halios Seaforth warrants a well-deserved look from you.

Most of the heavy lifting is done by the dial and bezel. The combination of the brushed finish and expanding polished bevel on the lug adds up to an elegant but somehow still casual timepiece. The dial is a bit on the low-key side but that depends on your choice of dial.

The baton indices and matching hands are fitted with C3 SuperLuminova and are outlined in bold black. The dial really does have an undeniable charm that just puts a smile on my face.

The Halios Seaforth is an excellent dive watch that’s under $1,000. It’s a big value proposition that dive watch fans can’t afford to miss.

2. Aevig Corvid

Best Microbrand Watches Aevig Corvid

Aevig Corvid is another brand that recently came to my attention. If you are looking for a rugged field watch that offers no fuss, the Aevig Corvid comes highly recommended.

A Field Watch for Urban Warriors

Aevig has plenty of eye-catching timepieces in their stable but it’s the Aevig Corvid that really drawn my attention. Aevig describes the Corvid as a “no nonsense easy to read field watch” and I can only nod in agreement.

The Corvid is housed in a 40mm case which can be quite small by current standards. However, the watch has plenty of heft and its combined dimensions give the watch a substantial feel. The case is made from 316L stainless steel and it gets the job done of providing a solid feel to the watch.

I was not expecting much from the caseback but I was pleasantly surprised. It’s a basic caseback but it has a block design which adds a great deal of character to the piece.

Of course, you can’t talk about this watch without mentioning the face. The dial reminds me of a vintage instrument panel found in early fighter planes. The dial features a metallic champagne color which adds more to the vintage look.

Moreover, the indices are all straight lines and topped with yellow orange circles for the hour hands. The dial looks clean and legible, and reminds me the best pilot watches out there. However, I was really thrown off with how the numbers are oriented.

Overall, the Aevig Corvid is elegant, simple, and offers good functionality.

3. Pantor Seahorse

Best Microbrand Watches

Pantor is perhaps the oldest microbrand on this list. However, their track record continues to impress. The Pantor Seahorse is one of the best microband watches for the savvy diver.

A Dive Watch That Won’t Break the Bank

The Seahorse was released back in 2013 by the Hong Kong-based Pantor brand.

Just by looking at it, it’s quite clear that the Seahorse looks are inspired by the legendary Rolex Submariner. The watch’s face is in matte and is populated with circular and shield-shaped hour markers. The dial stands out for its simplicity and legibility. The overall design looks like it’s the illegitimate child of the Seiko Turtle.

The case is made from 316L surgical grade stainless steel with a brushed finish. One of the best design elements of the Seahorse is the recessed crown. This reminds me of the Girard-Perregaux Seahawk but with a less exaggerated approach.

Pro divers who are looking for an affordable dive watch that simply works will have a lot to like about the Seahorse. It is waterproof up to 1,000 meters and it even has extras like the automatic helium valve at 9H. The dial markers are lumed and they are sufficiently illuminated even when you are underwater.

The watch is powered by the reliable Miyota 9015 automatic movement which also helps in keeping the cost down. It’s hard to go wrong with a dive watch that offers great value and functionality.

4. Farer Cobb

Best Microbrand Watches Farer Cobb

Farer is a British microbrand company that offers Swiss-made timepieces. Even the most jaded watch snob has found it difficult to ignore what Farer has to offer. When it comes to the Farer lineup, the Farer Cobb mechanical watch is one of the standouts.

Microbrand Watch Luxury

Without a doubt, the Farer Cobb caught my eye because of its colorful aesthetic. When it comes to luxury watches, a healthy dose of colors would be viewed as experimental or avant-garde. It’s really not the case with Farer – a brand that doesn’t shy away from colors.

The Cobb is a watch with a striking blue dial. The shade is somewhat of a midnight blue which simply looks elegant. Then, your eyes move on to the subdials which are now aqua. Afterward, you notice the other colors like yellow, red, and burnt orange.

Initially, this sounds like a mess on paper but Farer managed to nail all the design elements and colors without looking too garish. The execution is simply on-point.

The Cobb is a mechanical timepiece which happens to be a big step for the brand. The watch is powered with the ETA caliber 2894-2 movement which is more than a competent addition.

Lately, Farer has been knocking it out of the park with their offerings and the Cobb might just be my absolute favorite.

5. Marchand Legacy

Best Microbrand Watches

Previously, microbrands mostly turned to crowdfunding platforms in order to have the money to get their passion project going. Most microbrands were funded via Kickstarter and that applies to the Marchand Watch Company. The Marchand Legacy is one of the many babies of crowdfunding.

Designed by Racers for Racers

Just by looking at the Marchand Legacy, you’ll know that it’s a racing-inspired watch. As if the iconic racing checkered flag on its face is not the biggest tell.

For starters, the case is made from high-grade stainless steel and the bezel is knurled but can’t be adjusted. It comes with a screw-down crown which is quite a surprise. The Legacy has a waterproof rating of 10ATM – not exactly a dive watch but it should be fine against the occasional splash.

The watch is powered by the Miyota 9015 movement which provides reliable timekeeping. In addition, the strap is also very high-quality and reminds me of a svelte leather racing car seat.

Last but not the least, the dial is obviously the star here and it’s interesting to note that it’s constructed with layers. The skeletonized minute hand is one of the most unique design elements of the Legacy. Of course, you can see that the center of the dial features a checkered flag in various colors.

To put it simply, the Marchand Legacy will have your hearts racing.

6. Oak & Oscar Humboldt

Best Microbrand Watches Oak & Oscar Humboldt

During the explosion of the microbrands, Chicago-based Oak & Oscar is one of the companies that made the watch folks stop and notice. The Oak & Oscar Humboldt is perhaps the best timepiece from the company and is worth including in this list of the best microbrand watches.

A Daily-Driver With a Story to Tell

Firstly, the Oak & Oscar Humboldt is a 40mm millimeter piece which means that it has medium thickness. I prefer to go with 42mm but for some reason, the Humboldt felt just right on the wrist.

The watch has a 20ATM water resistance rating which is a nice touch considering that it’s not even a dive watch. The rotating bezel is bi-directional and comes in handy for tracking an additional timezone. The dial is protected by a double-domed sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating.

The dial is actually a two-layer sandwich design which is an Oak & Oscar thing. Whether you get the watch in a blue or grey dial, you’ll end up with a great-looking watch that you can wear almost everywhere. Nighttime use becomes possible with the Super-LumiNova BGW9 illumination. Also, the date window is located at the 6H which is another signature design element by the company.

Overall, the Humboldt is a distinct yet familiar effort from Oak & Oscar.

Microbrands Are Here to Stay

Thus, we’ve come to the end of our roundup of the best microbrand watches in the market.

Ultimately, the rise of microbrands excites many watch lovers.

As you can see, even independent companies can put out timepieces that are mind-blowingly good. Now, we’re not stuck with popular brands for our watch-collecting needs. After all, having more options is always a good thing.

Hamilton Watches Review

Hamilton Watches Review

Classic wrist-watches are back! Sales of analog watches have been rising consistently over the last few years and we’re ready. Hamilton watches are the definition of classic, having been in existence for well over a hundred years. Have they stood the test of time? Still beloved for their high quality and ranged pricing, Hamilton Watches remain a top contender in their industry. In this article, we are covering the Hamilton watches review.

Hamilton Watches Review

Historical Footprints of Hamilton

Now a Swiss manufacturer, Hamilton began as a true American brand. Starting with quality pocket watches, Hamilton was a well-known brand of its time. The expansion of the railroad helped its quality image greatly. Business with the railroad was dangerous and accuracy was desperately needed. Hamilton’s watches provided that accuracy.

Making railroad watches, Hamilton was gaining attention that continued into World War I. During the war, Hamilton was an official supplier of the U.S. Armed Services. At that time, they produced their first wrist watches. In the following years, they also began to design pieces for the air. They moved from the forefront of making history with the railroad to the historical advance of aviation, without missing a beat.

In World War II, Hamilton stopped producing for the general public and focused on equipping the Armed Forces. Once again, accuracy and quality were needed more than ever, and Hamilton was called upon to provide that. After the war, their watches were shown in multiple Hollywood movies, including one on the wrist of Elvis Presley. This solidified the brand’s popularity, not just for quality and precision but also for style.

Throughout the years, Hamilton continued to make fantastic technological advances, including being the first to make a digital electronic watch. In the early 2000s, they moved to Switzerland, the heart of watchmaking. As for the film industry, Hamilton watches are still shown on the big screen, often in movies that feature fictional scientific or sci-fi settings like “Interstellar.”

Hamilton’s Versatile Style

One of the most impressive features of Hamilton Watches is the fact that their watches suit nearly any style and function. If you’re looking for a watch that is precise, has a solid history, and will work with your personality, you’ll likely find it with a Hamilton.

Hamilton Intra-Matic Silver Dial Leather Watch

hamilton watches review

Want a simpler watch with a classic, professional design? Hamilton has some great options, including the Intra-Matic Silver Dial Leather Watch. This is a great example of a watch that can be worn in any setting. It will add to your professional dress code, look great for a special occasion, or it can class up a casual look. This design is chic, minimalist, and retro.

This analog watch has a fixed stainless-steel bezel and a sapphire crystal dial window that is resistant to scratches. The elegant dark hands and hour markers are brought into focus by the black leather strap. The watch feels high-quality without being overly flashy. Adding to the retro style is the lack of a second hand. Some find that a bit off-putting while others prefer it to keep the style consistent. A nice additional feature of this watch is the date, found at the 6-o’clock marker.

This watch is one of Hamilton’s most elegant options, but it certainly isn’t as high-tech or complicated as other options. For anyone wanting a more traditional, classic watch without all the embellishments of a chronograph option, Hamilton shows that they have options.

Unisex Ventura

hamilton watches review

While many of their watches are focused on precision, durability, and nostalgic/classic looks, they also provide styles like the Unisex Ventura.

This watch goes against the grain of what you consider a traditional watch to look like and that’s why it is a prime example of Hamilton’s versatility. With a black calfskin band, the watch features a beautiful, uniquely shaped stainless-steel case. The dial window is made of anti-reflective sapphire, so you get a consistently clear look at the analog display. The hour and minute markers are designed with slim lines and dots. The overall look is unique with rather bold design choices that are toned down with sleek, understated components like the markers.

Hamilton has a range of styles. However, the question is, are they still innovative and made for pioneers of the future, like they used to be?

Hamilton Watches, Still for the Future?

Since its creation, Hamilton was known for its precision and for being a companion to visionary explorers. With its ties to both World Wars and advancements on land and in the air, there’s a lot of history behind the name. Is that history something we can rely on still? Based on some of their chronograph and durable watches, I would dare to say so.

The Khaki X-Wind

hamilton watches review

This Khaki X-Wind chronograph watch is modern and beautifully crafted.  If you’re willing to pay the moderately steep price, it will take you places. The leather strap has contrast stitching as an added touch to make it stand out. The case is beautiful stainless steel along with the buckle closure. It allows for snorkeling and swimming as it is water-resistant up to 330-feet. Deep dives likely wouldn’t be a great choice, though. The analog display has H-30 automatic movement and there are a day and a date window at the 9-o’clock marker, which reviewers love.

Overall, people say that the features and information this watch provides is overwhelming, yet somehow it all works together seamlessly and is displayed attractively. Again, at a rather steep price, this watch seems to be a beautiful one that shows Hamilton is keeping its reputation strong.

The Khaki King Pilot Black Dial Watch

hamilton watches review

For under a thousand, you can still find fantastic watches that are far more than ornaments and that’s what keeps Hamilton great. The Khaki King Pilot Black Dial watch is a prime example of a durable watch that people use as they make waves…literally. Water-resistant up to 660 feet, this is not a watch you keep hidden only for special occasions, though its nearly all-black look is very attractive.

Hamilton has many watches, including this one, that are meant to help you live your life to the fullest, not just in terms of fashion. While Hamilton provides watches you may only want to wear on special occasions, they also produce timepieces for great adventures. With durable sapphire crystals protecting the dial window from scratching, you can rely on this watch to be durable.

Some reviewers had issues breaking in the leather strap, but overall, this seems to be a great watch that people love. The numerals are reflective, and readability is great, even in difficult lighting.  The Khaki King Pilot black is a perfect example of how Hamilton Watches are still here for the future, not just in fashion but also for adventurous growth.

Hamilton Watches are for the Everyday

One of the best parts of buying a new watch is to enjoy it during your everyday tasks. Nothing complicated, not a style meant for fashion week, and not a watch you wear climbing Mount Rainier.

A watch that can stand by you during your eight to five can be your most valuable timepiece. That’s why, when reviewing a watch brand, it’s incredibly important to look at some of these watches…The ones meant for the everyday. Because, in all likelihood, they are the most needed.

We’re going to look at a couple of options that display this category perfectly. However, I recommend researching more about Hamilton Khaki Field watches if you have the time, as they provide further great examples.

Men’s Jazzmaster Thinline

hamilton watches review

Our first example is the Men’s Jazzmaster Thinline.  This watch is extremely affordable for the quality and seems to be well-loved. The round stainless-steel case draws you in to enjoy the beautiful watch face behind a protective sapphire crystal window. The two-hand analog display, with quartz movement, is accurate and elegantly exhibited by silver hands.

The strap is alligator-embossed brown leather with sharp contrast stitching. Overall, this is a gorgeous everyday watch.

A beloved feature is the date window, which is very small and keeps the watch face open. One feature that is less beloved is an absent second hand. However, the watch seems to be beautiful and classic without being “in your face.”

Unisex Khaki King

hamilton watches review

Another option we can look at to measure Hamilton’s more every day watches is the Unisex Khaki King. This strap is leather with contrast stitching, making it extremely visual…Especially in comparison with its stainless-steel case, black round black dial, and light sword-shaped hands. Overall, this watch is extremely simple in and of itself, but the colorful design choices make it unique and visually appealing.

On the inner dial, you can see the 24-hour time. There are windows for the day and date, making this watch extremely informational in a simple way. Reviewers love its versatility and it’s no wonder. Besides formal events, this watch will go with just about any style. It is also comfortable and very durable. Essentially, this watch is the perfect everyday companion.

Conclusion – Hamilton Watches Review

It seems that Hamilton Watches is an extremely high-quality brand that has stood the test of time. With watches that work for any occasion and any lifestyle, I encourage you to look at these options. While some of these watches are on the pricier side, if you truly appreciate quality craftsmanship, I believe you will be happy with a Hamilton watch. I specifically recommend the Unisex Khaki King for its quality and adaptability.
