A collection of local, Australian watch brands and manufacturers taking homegrown products to the world.

HANDS-ON: The most surprising watch I've worn this year – the Creux Automatiq Ghost Explorer

Given that T+T is an Australian-based site, I've spent a fair amount of time over the years looking at watches from local brands. And I've got to say, I haven't seen a single offering as all-round impressive as this Creux Automatiq Ghost Explorer. What I was most impressed (and surprised) by with the Ghost Explorer was the overall build quality. But I'll get to that in a bit. First, let's look at the bigger picture. Creux launched in 2016, the…

HANDS-ON: The Melbourne Watch Company Carlton – a smart meca-quartz chronograph

Editor's Note: For the final instalment of our 2016 Australian watch round up we're looking at the fun and fashionable Carlton, from the Melbourne Watch Company. We've got a soft spot for the Melbourne Watch Company, and that's not just because it's named after our hometown. The serial Kickstarters have done well in separating themselves from the ever-growing pack of affordable, online watch brands. Last year we checked out the flagship Portsea, and today we're spending some quality time with the Carlton. Its…

HANDS-ON: The Erroyl Regent Nero, a value-packed calendar that hits all the right notes

Editor's Note: In our penultimate post on Australian watch brands, we take a look at Erroyl's second watch, and discover that this one definitely isn't suffering from second album syndrome. Around this time last year, Erroyl had only just launched its first model – the Heritage. In the subsequent 12 months, the fledgling brand has done very well in combining quality components and finishing with thoughtful design and wallet-friendly price. Its latest model is the Erroyl Regent, which has the more difficult task of meeting…

HANDS-ON: The Bausele Pilot All Black – 
a value packed ceramic pilot with a twist

Editor's Note: As part of our follow-up to last year's Australian Watch Week, we're taking another look at Bausele – this time the well-priced ceramic pilot. It's been a little while now since we checked in with Bausele, which has continued to carve its name into the local watch scene. Now it looks set to crack the American market, recently signing English/Aussie /LA-based actor Dominic Purcell, famous for his stint in Prison Break, as the face of its new campaign. Bausele was the first Australian…

HANDS-ON: The Haigh & Hastings Classic – Aussie style with a serious Swiss pedigree

Editor's Note: Last year we held a special week of stories focusing on local watch brands, and in a fit of creativity we called it 'Australian Watch Week'. Twelve months down the track, many of the brands have come up with a fresh crop of models, and we're going to be having a close look at some of the stand outs over the next few weeks. First up, Haigh & Hastings. Perth-based Haigh & Hastings has spent the past few…
