The control area of the Gyrowinder also has a series of LED lights that illuminate the watch for you - like spotlights. I don't see how this product could exist without a spotlight feature - that is sort of the whole point. The Gyrowinder is for that special breed of collector who considers each of their timepieces to be part of their family. The type of family member that you sometimes love more than the rest of your family.
I think it is interesting that Patek Philippe decided to use a 5004 watch as the base of its Only Watch 2013 offering. The movement is something that they freely admit is not totally produced by them. There is nothing wrong with that, but it comes at a time when Patek Philippe is quite militant about keeping details about its suppliers secret and closed. That is a shame because the Swiss watch industry is really a community of quality companies working together, and there is no manufacturer that truly makes everything in-house. Not even Rolex or Patek Philippe.
What put Vianney on the map was his Antiqua watch collection. The beautiful steampunk creations were nice enough to overcome early production problems and find homes on enough wrists. Indeed, Vianney was able to satisfactorily shake up a stodgy market with a novel creation and displaying to the watch industry that pop culture was actually a great source of inspiration for high-end timepieces. For that Vianney should be thanked and credited. Finally, watch designers felt free to innovate beyond designs that were hundreds of years old. But after an initial rush of success, it is a shame Halter didn't run further with it.
The Sinn U1 is a relatively heavy watch. On the tegimented bracelet, with a couple of links removed, it comes in close to 1/2 pound. The 44mm case is just right for my almost 7 1/2 wrist and is somewhat comfortable, while (again) heavy. This is especially true since as mentioned, Sinn places the crown at 4 o'clock instead of the common 3 o'clock. This makes the crown easy to grasp while also avoiding putting any pressure on your wrist as you move your arm and your hand.
While the Patek will be only about 37mm wide on your wrist, the Fireman Classic is 40mm wide making for a nicely-sized dress watch. Hour indicators and dauphine hands are as close as Ball can get to the Patek look while incorporating tritium gas tubes on the face. You'll find the tubes neatly placed in the hands, as well as oriented vertically as the lume points on the periphery of the dial. The case is rather durable as well being water resistant to 100 meters (with screw-down crown) and rather shock resistant.
The Omega Sochi Petrograd limited watch will be produced in an 18k yellow gold case matched to a burgundy strap (that is so fitting for the retro theme). Size is 32mm wide by 47mm tall and 13mm thick. The dial is the best part and not only has the color red which you often see on Omega's limited edition Olympics watches, but also the colors of the Russian flag. It is difficult not to enjoy the art deco era Arabic numeral typeface for the indicators. Inside the watch is the Omega caliber 2202 automatic Co-Axial movement. This is essentially a modified ETA 2895 (small seconds) with a Co-Axial escapement. A nice and unexpected watch, Omega will produce just 100 pieces of the limited edition Omega Sochi Petrograd Olympics 2014 timepiece. Price is ,600. omegawatches.com

The hour and minute hands are super thin and a bit hard to see. I like the color contrast between them and the chronograph hands, but the legibility suffers a bit as a result. No lume, purely a dress watch design.
My conversation with Mr. Kelly ended on a serious note - what is to become of the space program? It was important for me to ask him this question, as what I learned from the media over the last couple of years when it was announced that the government was ending the space shuttle program was confusing to say the least. Many people made it sound as though NASA was closing its doors. That isn't exactly the case. What was at issue was government-funded manned flight missions as part of the space shuttle program. That clearly didn't apply to robotic missions such as the recent Curiosity landing on Mars.
Small rings around the sub dials on the main dial add some depth and, legibility is very good despite a lack of lume for the chronograph (aside from the second hand) for night viewing. There are SuperLumiNova lume points around the dial, which may be more difficult to view than the hands and the 12 and 6 o'clock hour indicators, in the dark. Though we haven't tested it in poor light.

Breitling does offer a limited edition of the Navitimer 01 in steel that, as far as I can tell, has four hardly noticeable changes from the one reviewed here. Differences are: 1) a white gold B-winged logo on the dial instead of yellow gold, 2) the date aperture has white background with red digits instead of black background and white digits, 3) the serial number (up to 2000) is engraved on the side of the case, and 4) a sapphire crystal caseback showing the in-house B01 movement. Of these changes, the only one I wish mine also had is the see-through caseback...

In the 14 years since starting his own design studio – which largely focuses on timepieces – Eric has worked with the likes of Christophe Claret and Jean-Francois Mojon, and has designed watches for brands including Harry Winston, MB&F and MCT.
With much anticipation for Citizen's latest release, the Eco-Drive Proximity Bluetooth watch is now finally for sale (see the aBlogtoWatch hands-on review here). To help launch this release, Arizona Fine Time will be hosting an event at our store in Scottsdale, AZ November 28th 2012 from 3-7pm. During the event, we will have Citizen USA's Director of After Sales Service (who also is their lead technology expert) in-store doing a special demonstration on the new Proximity Bluetooth watch and how it works. Following each presentation, there will be a Q&A session for inquiring customers. We'll also have free food, drinks and cigars for anyone in attendance. With the purchase of any Citizen product, we'll have T-shirts, hats and other promotional items. If you're in the Scottsdale/Phoenix area, it will definitely be worth checking out.
Given the price point, the Raven 44mm Deep is remarkably well finished. The case is nicely brushed, with crisp under edges and polished running edges on the lugs. The lugs are drilled for simplified strap changes and the left side of the case features an automatic helium escape valve. The HEV may be complete overkill for this watch, but should you want to use some of the Raven 44mm Deep's 4000ft water resistance in a saturation dive setting, it will be able to keep up. The domed sapphire crystal adds some visual flare but could benefit from an anti-reflective treatment as it does display a lot of ambient reflections. Offering a look that is nicely matched with the crystal, the unidirectional bezel carries a sapphire insert that sits above a fully lumed scale offering excellent low-light visibility of any countdown timing you may have to do. Bezel grip is excellent with a very positive and sturdy feel that is easy to use and accurate to set thanks to both a consistently smooth travel and an easily distinguished red zero marker. I really like the look of the lumed sapphire bezel and the insert is set low enough in the bezel frame to be properly protected by the steel edge of the bezel.
As we previously announced, Rolex introduced six new Rolex Day-Date watches for 2013 at Baselworld. Unfortunately, they didn't give them unique names (aside from the reference numbers) outside of the standard Rolex Day-Date collection, but in our opinion these are special models. When we first saw them in their glorious colors through the windows at the Rolex booth, we immediately dismissed them as fashionable ladies watches. However, after getting a hands-on look, we can pretty easily say that there is something in here for men and women alike. The Rolex Day-Date II watch came out a few years ago that upped the famous Rolex Day-Date to a 41mm wide, versus 36mm wide case size. Nevertheless, many men out there still wear the 36mm Rolex Day-Date.
Did you know that like Omega, Breguet makes use of Liquidmetal? The special technology was purchased by Omega (via the Swatch Group) a few years ago for the production of bezels and dials. In the case of the Classique La Musicale 7800, Liquidmetal is used inside of the watch to create a better resonance system for the musical alarm function. Liquidmetal is apparently used in the production of the metal membrane which works with a series of blades that create the music box-style function inside of the watch. The tune is Bach if you didn't notice.
Overall we like the dial a lot, whether in the sunburst silver with aged-style lume or the black and white dial. We feel that the detailing for the date window and disc could have been a bit better. Hamilton merely cuts a small hole for the date window, which is in a white tone that doesn't match anything else on the dial. A simple frame or matching date disc would have helped this good dial look even better.
