Panerai watches

The “group think” by watch lovers about quartz watches was (and is) that these preposterous pieces of plastic, metal, and batteries - by an amazing quirk of fate - were only worn by “geeks and losers.” It was like wearing socks and sandals! And to do so meant you lacked some level of taste and sophistication.

One of the special features that Caliber 39 has is Eterna's in-house developed Spherodrive system, which is a much more durable mainspring barrel system. The movement further operates at 28,800 bph (4Hz) and has a power reserve of 68 hours. That is much more impressive than the competition at this price for sure. Don't forget that the Caliber 39 was designed as a base, so there will be many more configurations of it in the future.

Eric Singer is a well-known major watch lover, but when it comes down to it, Gene Simmons and most of Kiss are all pretty enthusiastic watch nerds. A friend of the brand, it didn't take much to have Eric actually test out the SpringLock system while drumming during a concert. Singer has been wearing the watch on his wrist while performing for at least a few concerts now, and Philippe isn't just there to enjoy the show, but to also monitor the performance of the watch. This is what you call serious real world testing when it comes to a new durability feature.

HourTime Show Watch Podcast Episode 157: How Rolex Prices Have Historically Increased

HourTime Show Watch Podcast Episode 157: How Rolex Prices Have Historically Increased

What are these meet-ups about? At the surface level, it just looks like a bunch of watch collectors getting together and showing off their watches - much like you might think about a car show, perhaps. Having attended my first one (and more on that in a bit), I can safely say there is more to it than that. While it is very cool to see the variety of watches people bring (which can range from Fossil and Disney watches, all the way up to pieces from the likes of Rolex, Audemars Piguet, and Cartier), it is the owners of the watches that are the draw.

In addition to the Marinemaster Vintage being a "retro-redo," it is part of Fortis' 100th anniversary collection as the brand turned 100 years old in 2012. That little fact is indicated on the rear of the watch. An interesting tidbit of information for collectors. In total, 1000 pieces of the Marinemaster Vintage (ref. 800.20.80 L.01, aka 800.20.80 L) will be produced. That is 500 pieces in orange and 500 pieces in blue. Price is ,600. fortis-watches.com

IWC Limited Edition Pilot Watches Celebrate “The Little Prince” Birthday

When it comes to affordable watches with some interesting styling, Christopher Ward has been on the radar for most of us, and new for the brand is the Christopher Ward 65 Classic. One of the first watches I came into contact with from them was their excellent C60 Trident GMT. Given that history, I was rather intrigued to see their new iteration in that lineup, the C65 Trident Classic.

This uncommon ability is thanks to Sinn's D3-System, which mounts the pushers and crown directly into an opening in the case, as opposed to relying on a more common tube insert layout. With this clever and robust integration solution, the crown and pushers on the Sinn EZM 13 are more capable of withstanding impacts and protecting against the ingress of moisture and dust.

A little history then for those not in the know, Richard Habring is no wannabe proclaiming his philosophy; the credentials exist to prove his watch making skills and his worth as an independent. After all, this is the man who, early in his career, was given the task of creating a rattrapante or "split seconds chronograph," whose production could be industrialized and then mass-produced for a lower price.

It is true, Urwerk has some very cool watches and are among the few sci-fi watches that I would actually say look futuristic in a way that doesn't scream "science fiction nerd." There is a masculine darkness to their designs that feels more automotive and military-inspired than spaceship and lightsaber. A prime directive at the brand is that their watches must be different, and to that end they have dutifully succeeded. Another interesting goal of theirs over the last few years has been to make their timepieces more interactive.

Bovet Timepieces Owner Pascal Raffy On Patrimony, Values, And The True Meaning Of Luxury ABTW Interviews

Therefore, I predict that in the near future, luxury watch makers and other companies will begin to focus on the revival of traditional analog instruments and scientific devices as items in or complimentary to watches. That is exactly what I see in the Breva Genie 01. There is a combination of timekeeping with a traditional analog barometer that uses an aneroid capsule in order to measure the barometric pressure. It is all done in a modern and high-end way that is about celebrating the appeal of the instrument itself, versus how immediately utilitarian it might be. The Breva Genie 01 is a luxury scientific toy that doesn't play with being a status symbol as much as it plays with our fascination with measuring devices.

When I first saw these photos, the dial design seemed a little off, but then I realized that I've just grown accustom to seeing El Primeros with colorful and contrasting sub dials and, while I'll always have a soft spot in my heart for the metallic blue sub dial seen on models like the Striking 10th, it's cool to see Zenith expanding and offering a more reserved dial design for a more traditional movement like the 410. zenith-watches.com

Like the Fiddy, the PAM 372 also has a 47mm 1950-style stainless steel case, but with subtle differences. For one, the case is entirely polished stainless steel instead of brushed. However, the trademark "device protecting the crown" retains its brushed finishing. Additionally, the case also has a slightly different shape. It’s less chunky and has a cushion-shape profile that is more similar to the Radiomir watches. It also has slimmer lugs.

Casio watches are popular all over, especially with the young crowd. It's no wonder hip-hop and rap stars, e.g., Eminem, are frequently seen wearing Casio watches though, mostly the Casio G-Shock series. But while the Casio G-Shock and Casio Baby G-Shock are trendy, for my lifestyle, my preferred Casio is the Pro Trek series. Previously known as the Pathfinder series, the Pro Trek has a unique style and purpose in the Casio line as the stalwart electronic tool watch that is less about being fashionable and more about being reliable and useful.

Revelation R03 Chronograph Watch Review Wrist Time Reviews

My time with Richard Habring has shown me that he is a man on a mission. An independent watchmaker and namesake behind the company Habring2, he stands alone among his peers as the only one making and selling watches for what in this industry is a low price. In-house movements in fine watches from as little as 4,000 Euros.

Click on the link above at the top of the article to learn more about the Ball Engineer Hydrocarbon Airborne, but I'll quickly mention that it comes in a 42mm wide steel case with a COSC Chronometer certified automatic Swiss movement and it uses tritium gas tubes for illumination.
