Speedmaster Dark Side Of The Moon 311.92.44.51.01.003

Omega Speedmaster Buyer’s Guide Part 2

What type of woman would wear these watches? Certainly not ever type of woman. I am not here to predict who would wear it, but I think it is clear that these watches are not for everyone, and that is likely how Boucheron likes it. Me too, because the richness of the watch world has room for models that some lust for and others loathe. Aside from the gray gold cases and many types of jewels the watches have either satin, galuchat (sting ray) straps. Overall, I appreciate this Boucheron ladies' watch collection because it is able to be humorous about luxury. This is not the first time that Boucheron has had a Bestiary collection, or that they have does animals mixed with jewelry. But the humor is there and so is the fantasy. So I like these watch. Check out the invidiual articles for more information about each model via my Luxist articles here:

Don't be afraid to like this watch. I do. I think it looks pretty hot actually. Is that something I typically say about a watch? No, but this isn't a typical looking watch. Are you MAN ENOUGH to wear a white watch? Sure you are. Now granted, a watch like this is not for everyone, or every outfit. Frankly some of you may look outright silly wearing this watch. For other, this is a fantastic addition to your collection. From TX, this is the newest version of their 800 Series Linear Chronograph watch model. This model T3C456TX is in all white, with a steel case and rose gold toned trim. More on that later.

The dial color could be a dark brown (that matches gold well), black, or any other color. It looks nice being a bit bare. I find the font that Virtual Ideas used for the numerals to be interesting. A technical, almost computer generated font that you'd expect to see on a receipt print out. It makes the counting of time more mathematical, or rather the watch look more like an instrument. The hands are smaller but useful. They might stand for some improvement so as to be more clear . They look to be lume covered, so I hope the numerals on the dial are as well. Virtual Ideas designs concepts such as this show watch companies what they can do. As fresh ideas are often better than a stale design department (many of you out there can attest to that). Whenever I see their designs I wonder to myself what brands the looks best fit with.

Breitling Replica Watches

Hip, cool, and really noticeable is how someone recently referred to this cool women's Casio Baby-G watch. In bright shiny yellow, this model BG5602-9 watch is an awesome example of a great casual sporty watch for a style conscious, but unpretentious woman. Inside is all the great durable and functional features you come to expect from a Casio G-Shock style watch, with a cool urban, candy-like style that is hard to find elsewhere.

This need involved two things. First, making a highly legible dial that could be easily read in a glance. And second, having a high quality lume that would stay readable all night long. The first issue wasn't so much of a technological issue, as it was a design effort, mixing and matching the right style hands and numerals, with the right sizes. After living with the Red Cell watch, I must admit that like magic, the watch is quite quick to be read. There are thousands of dials designs out there. Some much more easy to read than others. Not only is the Red Cell watches among the cooler looking dials, but it gives you the information you need at a quick glance. Just as simple as that. Each hour has a thick dedicated marker, and there are smaller markers for each minute. The hands are long and thick enough. I am curious as to what the watch would be like having a different style of hour and minute hand on the the dial, but that is just curiosity - the watch dial is good as it is. The seconds hand is in red, plus there is a Rolex Explorer II style GMT hand in red. Each hand is covered in a rich amount of lume. The dial has a curved chapter ring with the GMT hours on it for easy reading. Plus, the minutes are counter out in five minute increments on the steel bezel. The dial also has a nicely framed date window.

The watch is really all about the dial - which looks great. First and foremost for Seiko is function. As you can see the Chronograph and GMT models are extremely easy to use and read. For a simpler look you can go with the GMT model. It has the time, date, GMT hand, and a power reserve indicator. Very clean lines, and impressively bold, yet beautiful. The chronograph model adds a 12 hour chronograph to the mix, with the chronograph subdials being stacked for the easiest reading possible (all the chronograph hands are also red). Let me tell you why Seiko high-end chronographs are the best on the market to use (in my humble opinion). First, the chronograph movements utilize a column wheel and vertical clutch (if you don't know what these are, that is OK, but they are things you want in a chronograph movement). In addition to being accurate (and actually increasing the power reserve time on the Spring Drive watches!) they utilize a "ready, set, go" feature. The chronograph pushers have a two-stage operation. Let me explain this simple but important concept. Press the chronograph start/stop pusher down and you feel a gentle springy resistance until it comes to the first stop. You've just gone from "ready" to "set." Then press down a bit more and you start the chronograph. The chronograph starts precisely when you press the pusher down the second time, without any lag time. This way you start the chronograph at just the right time, and it feels so nice! The second you try it, you'll be sold - I was. It might even make you use the chronograph function much more than normal. The chronograph is also used for the tachyemeter scale on the bezel. That is a function no on uses. A limited edition version of the Ananta Spring Drive Chronograph a clean, bare bezel.

One thing that is interesting is that Rolex apparently hates these watches. I've been told that if you have a modified Rolex watch, never send it to Rolex for servicing (they might not exactly send it back the same - and with a "restoration" bill). Chew on that. Not such a big deal though as Rolex movements are famously easy to work with. I sometimes ask watch makers their favorite movements to  repair or work on, and "Rolex" is often the answer.

The automatic mechanical watch  is a totally different creature for the most sinister segment of watch lovers. The watch even looks mysteriously sensual with organic curvy lines - which is exactly the provocative look that Dexter Sinister is going for. It wants other people viewing the wearer of the Hex Automatic to question under their breath, "What's that watch I am seeing? I'd like to know the story behind that?" While the hour numerals are black on black, emphasis is on the red seconds hand as it sweeps around the dial ominously. The underworld black tones of the watch make for a chic modern industrial look that feels right with the proper outfit - all leather, all black, and handsomely aggressive. Wear the watch properly and it will reward you.

Sports Legends In Time…

Even worse, is the fact that some panther cubs lose their spots when they grow up. So for people in the know, the watch actually says "I am emulating baby panther fur." While only some people are going to walk away with this message, if I was the one auditing Cartier ad copy, I would have pointed this out. What is the message? Either have the kitty or the fur style watch in an ad, just not both. Aside from that, I do like the Cartier ad campaign website. Jazzy music and nice graphics of a big cat walking around interesting in fancy jewelry. You can check it out here at Cartier's Les Must collection mini-site.

Remember that putting the lever and chadburn back in the middle position will always return the watch to the correct time. Why does the Horus Ultramarinum do this? As a novelty. To time travel, or to make it so that you can look at your watch and say "look at the time. I gotta go," more often and it look later than it is. Trust me, this is a more useful, useless novelty than some I have seen (that means you Franck Muller Secret Hours watch). It is kind of cool as well.  Oh, and The Marine watch is water resistant to 200 meters, which is actually not bad given this type of watch. Good if your luxury sailing vessel capsizes. Down with the ship, does not need to mean down with your investment.

Highly Regarded Croton Time

Made for a man, sized for a woman? Apparently that is what Swedish watch designer Gabriel Arlanch had in mind when making his first watch, the Arlanch Gold Watch No 1 as it is 32mm wide. Little! Sorta kid sized, or lady sized. Maybe I am getting it all wrong and this is a woman's watch. The was was announced mid last year, but this is the first I have heard of it. Aside from the passable looks, the real press release filler for the watch is it's eco-friendly features. Also, if the watch is Swedish, why does it say "Made in Germany" on it? Swedish design. Swiss movement, Germany manufacture. At least it looks that way.

The timepiece is a fun idea in a cheeky sort of way. You have an easy to live with watch that has some unique qualities you won't find anywhere else. The watch is meant to be a new type of fashion accessory, just like the Livestrong bracelets of a few years ago. And just like those silicon rubber bracelet the Red8 watch is available in a slew of colors. Not to mention that the Red8 does comes with an easily removable... silicon rubber bracelet. See this one here in red. The little elements on the Red8 watch are done in a quality manner. I am afraid that fashion forward types getting one of these may not be able to appreciate some of the more minor touches, but they are there. You can tell that effort went into the watch being able to satisfy even snobs like me. Staying on the topic of the strap, you'll notice the well designed PVD metal buckle with double pins. The metal has nice sharp edges and feels quality made. You get a nice Red8 logo engraved in it as well.

What I am trying to indicate is that many watch companies are already behind the times, and need to catch up before venturing into the creation of an iPhone application. Brands who embrace current media technology will have a hard time deciding how to make us of the many available programs and communication tools. The best results will be from examining what words for other more established luxury brands, not necessarily watch brands. Remember, that working simplicity is more important failed ambition, and that watch companies need to embrace what makes sense, not just what looks cool.

Phosphor Digital Hour Clock e-Ink Watch Review

Phosphor Digital Hour Clock e-Ink Watch Review

The watch comes in a great looking black box with a well detailed instruction sheet and separate easy reference guide. Good documentation overall, but like I said, you won’t need too much time with the instructions because the functions are intuitive and straightforward. Besides, most of the functions are underwater only. With a retail price of ,199 the Suunto Elementum Aqua is on the pricey side, though it is on par with its closest competitor which is the Tissot Sea-Touch. The good news is that actual street price is going to be more often than not less than the suggested retail price. A great addition to the Suunto line that is sure to resonate well with diving enthusiast fans of the brand and anyone who wants a simple to use and reliable dedicated diving watch instrument. Oh, and who doesn’t get a reassuring and cool feeling when they see “Manufactured In Finland” on a product. What else do you know that is made there?
