Default Hoffman Watch

Has anyone heard of Hoffman Watches by chance? Or seen their new
Diver 40? Or Racer 40 yet?

With both the Diver 40, and Racer 40 you have 40mm stainless steel cases
with multiple finishes, 50m WR, AR coated sapphire crystals, and fleet of
eye-catching dials with luminous hands, and markers.

Then within the Diver it looks like you have the Seagull TY2901 automatic,
and within the Racer, a Seiko VK64 MechaQuartz. With the Diver coming
on a NATO, and the Racer on a leather strap.

A look at some the models, and variations...































Hoffman Watches with much more for you...

I visited their site and read the following caption: "Reinventing the sports watch". Now that is a bold statement! Rehashing the sports watch is more accurate I know, I know, a cheap laugh and probably unfair but I haven't noticed anything new and I wouldn't print 'water resistant 50 meters' on the dial because that is nothing to write home about.

You are making so many excellent points Frans ! (As always)

There really isn't a ton of reinventing like you said, but more a changing
up of things with maybe some of the PVD finishes, and dial combos perhaps.

They actually kind of remind me of Bamford, and how they customize
watches sir, but instead the watches already come looking customized
from the start. ..It's a fun point you make about the water resistance
also Frans. Guess they just wanted to give everyone the facts with that.

Thanks so much for giving your two cents, and for your honestly too sir !

The 1st photo reminds me of the 62MAS (new one)

A bit of a yawner imo.

Thanks for the post!

Want to thank YOU honestly !!

Yup, they aren't completely new really, but guess the cool
mix of different dial set-ups, finishes, and the mecha-quartz
caught my eye guys.

Was like a new twist on a classic idea.

Thanks so much once again guys !!!
