The Bell & Ross Geneva 123 is a classic watch. Not by any chronological measure, but rather by the timeless way it seems to go with anything, anywhere. You could blow up the size of the watch and put it on a wall or building and it would be perfectly at home. Legibility is perfect, the sharp hands confidently expressing the time. Black hands on the pristine white face, or polished steel glistening against the serene black, the watch stands out with it sense of being perpetually "in the now."

The Citizen Calibre 3100 line has a few notable features making it very easy to live with. First, Citizen puts in a perpetual calendar. You might notice the omission of a month or day indicator, but that is not how this watch works. The important information is displayed on the prominent big date window. When setting the watch you use the 12 hour markers to represent the months, and set the date accordingly. This tells the watch when to have 31, 30, or 28 day months. Otherwise you would have to adjust the date manually on non 31 day months. It is possible that by pushing one of the pushers on the side of the watch, it will reorient the hands of the watch to show you the full date. Further, it is possible that movement is able to adjust for leap years when there will be a 29 day February.
Whilst this represents an exciting opportunity for many of the world's great watchmakers, it is also a strong indication of increasing consumer fickleness in an industry largely defined by brand loyalty. As many high-end consumers begin to seek timepieces that suit specific outfits and/or occassions brand may play second fiddle to the aesthetic features of the watch such as design and materials. Main stream consumers may compromise on price in order to be able to give their collections more depth, and thus watchmakers will need to respond to this accordingly.
The sale is limited to watches that are in stock, and the sale ends on April 30th. Also, you need to pay with a wire transfer or cashier's check to get the discount, but this really is not a big deal and the reason is obvious because PayPal and credit cards take a good chunk of change for the pleasure of doing business with them. Marcello C. is trying to give its customers the best possible value.

As an unexpected modern twist, DeWitt provides a USB powered watch winder for the WX-1. I have to say that I was amazed to hear this. Why? Well first of all watch companies are notoriously slated in the past. I mean we are talking the dedicated production of mechanical watches, that from a pure efficiency standpoint more or less seceded from being practical once the quartz watch movement proved to be infinitely cheaper and more accurate. Ah, but the mechanical watch is so much more sexy. Why do we prefer a fine vintage wine, when Pabst Blue Ribbon beer will do the trick? It is because mechanical watches are seeped in tradition, romance, and the most important element of all to a coveting collector; they are extremely difficult to design and manufacture. So when DeWitt coupled the WX-1 with a USB charger, I was impressed and intrigued. The USB charging unit functions like a little stand for the watch. You deploy the dedicated winding stem from the watch with a small lever (the winding stem is located in the side porthole next to the tourbillon window). Once the stem is extended, it connects with the charger that turns it intermittently. It's amusing that you can connect this triumph of mechanical nostalgia to a computer for power purposes. I find this fact charming, and perhaps highly telling of watch the luxury watch industry is all about; producing creations of art and excess that must still conform to lifestyle and practical considerations.
These watches fall into various prices ranges, mostly within the high quality watch range. I am interested in other suggestions for perfect Darth Vader watches, I admit to having more on my mind. Whether you are a light or dark side of the force type of Jedi, or no Jedi at all, you can still appreciate these fine and unique time pieces, which fit this outfit, and others.
Potential watch buyers are left with user reviews strewn about online on forums and dedicated personal websites. It is encouraged that if you own a watch you like, you write a review to share with the watch community or interested consumers in general. Buying a new watch should have a higher degree of consumer reliability, as you are buying as much a tool as you are a functioning machine. Don't you want your new watch to work well with a high degree of functionality? Some watches are certainly better engineered than others, and build quality can vary drastically. For this reason watch reviews are a valuable resource, when someone takes the time to draft a review that is.

If you are looking for a rare watch, I highly recommend at least using this to look, much of the time you will find available items that aren't intended for US sale. If you get one, you can proudly boast that your watch is very limited and none were ever sold in the US. No worries about seeing anyone else with one.

NauticFish is an offshoot brand from Schaumburg watch company in Germany. The line represents aggressively styled performance diving watches at reasonable prices, and here is a brand new one at an even more reasonable price.
There is something satisfying on an innate level when it comes to seeing celebrities enjoy something you like as well. It is also possible, to a degree, to live vicariously through those people who can afford the watches we cannot. For whatever reason it is be it: style, quality, function, or advertising, everyone wants a Rolex.
Steampunk-derived products are rare in the mainstream, and almost never mass produced, just as Vianney Halter's are that exclusive. The average watch owner or collector will appreciate the looks of these watch, but not necessarily be aware of the theme which the watches are trying to emulate. These expensive and beautiful fantasy science fiction watches. Emulating a combination of gauges, early underwater submarine portholes, and steam-powered machine era measuring instruments. The off center and bulbous placement of the various indicator windows is reminiscent of a gauge array on a steam engine, where the constant observation of pressure and temperature were essential to safe operation. Likewise, Vianney Halter watches are meant to be looked at and admired. You do not spend in excess of ,000 to see anything but the finest materials and craftsman's ship. Surprisingly enough, the small "factory" in rural Switzerland were each of these watches is assembled is a converted barn over 100 years old. It is some how fitting that these little machines be lovingly crafted outside of modern times. The bottom like is that they don't make instruments like they used to.
For those of you who don't live and breathe by the term SEO, it stands for Search Engine Optimization, or otherwise, the tactics used to make your website appear higher on search engine result pages. SEO methods can be a bit of a mire, and there are endless "services" out there that claim to help. Many of these work well, but there are also many which are not worth the money and can actually do more harm than good.

To implement the authorized dealer restrictions, manufacturers of high-end watches individually number each watch. These serial numbers or "codes," can be traced back to the store authorized to sell the particular watch. Because watch pricing is inflated to a high degree, it is necessary for watch manufacturers to police this system judiciously. A watch dealer will acquire a watch in two ways from a manufacturer; either purchasing the watch flatout at a dealer price, or on a consignment basis (where the retailer does not actually buy the item, but merely "displays" it for the manufacturer who either rents the space or pays a commission to retailer when the item is sold). Both methods have plus and minuses, but the majority of watch retailers purchase watches at dealer prices from the manufacturer and then resell them. At the basis level, the manufacturer has a retail price which they "suggest" and there is a different price that the dealer pays for the watch. The difference in those prices that the dealer makes in a sale is their profit.
The steampunk style requires no explanation to some, and for others it might sound like a rebellious adolescent who hangs out at a Chinese laundry. In fact, the idea comes from a design style based on industrialization era futurism and mechanics. Hearkening to a time when steam power ran machines and the future was dictated by Jules Verne, steampunk is retro futuristic when industrial design was a gentleman's pursuit and nothing such as plastic or semi-conductors were ever heard of. Pure steampunk style is like Renaissance faire clothing for Victorian era purists, but the clockwork fascination has taken everyone from weekend goths, to the leather crowd by storm. Some would say it is a subconscious rebellion to the mass produced culture of disposable goods; to brandish exposed watch and clock gears reminiscent of when craftspeople solely made such items. Others simply attribute the steampunk style as a fanciful expression of modern impressionism. Either way the visual appeal is immediate, and the tangible novelty is lasting.
Most Timezone.com users are likely unaware of these policies. Other respected watch forums such as Watchuseek.com, pmwf.com, watchreport.com, and others respect its members much more. While advertising is a necessary means of making money to maintain a site which does not enjoy user fees, etc..., these are not supposed to be marketing websites. Free speech aside, the dilemma here is clear. When you have a forum that is perceived a venue for the exchange of ideas, the intentional censorship and modification of such ideas (for no good reason) is egregious and destroys the entire value of a site for a watch enthusiast or anyone. Timezone is simply not an objective source for anyone.
