Working in conjunction with WISeKey, a Swiss NFC technology expert, Bulgari have created something that is more than just a self-winding mechanical watch. It is a key to a portable vault worn on the wrist. Inside the case, which is attractive regardless of its internal intrigue, is an NFC chip capable of unlocking an application that can store huge amounts of encrypted data on the cloud and communicate with other devices within its range. By simply tapping the watch against a smart device, it is possible to engage the specially designed app from which the watch's data storage potential can be controlled.
While it is difficult to measure the watch size because the case melds seamlessly with the bracelet, according to the brand, the Jacob & Co. Billionaire watch is 47.5mm wide and a hefty 58mm tall (long). The 18k white gold case is somewhere down there under the diamonds, and the bracelet gracefully slopes down from the case rather than dropped down immediately in a way that might make it fit better. Its more like a massive diamond-covered bangle bracelet. You, theoretically, could remove bracelet links as one would on most other watches with bracelets... but in this case, do you really want to reduce that 260 carat count? I think you owe it to the careful creators and gemologists who toiled on this timepiece to maintain its full dimensions whilst wearing it. So I am not going to suggest removing any links for sizing purposes.
Legibility is nonetheless excellent, even in poor lighting conditions, thanks to the high contrast between the hands, indices and the satin black finish of the dial. It is in the very dark where some extra pop to the lumed components is needed. I like the sensibly designed, legible, simple – but for the price segment not cheap looking – dial a lot. But then again, that makes me say all-the-more, that some extra lume would elevate it from good to exceptional.
Beyond the choice of dial color, Zenith has also optioned three different mounts for the Zenith El Primero Sport, including a brown alligator strap, a metal bracelet with a triple folding clasp, and a rubber strap. I really like the look of the slate dial on the rubber strap (below), it gives the Zenith El Primero Sport a bit of a motorsport vibe that works really well with the red seconds hand.
Since 2008, Nick and Giles have taken Bremont beyond their core collection, partnering with like-minded brands, charities and foundations to offer limited edition models that reflect the interests that the brothers have beyond their own watches. These limited-run pieces, which include the EP120, Norton, Victory, Codebreaker, P-51, Wright Flyer, Kingsman, and Jaguar editions stand alone and have all been eagerly snatched up by collectors. In the case of the Codebreaker, Victory, and Wright Flyer, a large percentage of proceeds have gone to charitable foundations, supporting the restoration of Hut 9 at Bletchley Park, halt the deterioration of the Royal Navy’s aging Flagship, and provide a monetary infusion to the Wright Foundation respectively.
Dive watch enthusiasts eager to enjoy Omega's latest and greatest movement tech will be thrilled to hear that the Omega Seamaster Ploprof 1200M is now the recipient of some interesting upgrades and Omega's anti-magnetic movement technology. The new colors offer a bit more variety, but at the end of the day, even people with a modern Omega Seamaster Ploprof 1200M watch with the 8500 movement will be deeply romanced by the new 2015 Omega Seamaster Ploprof 1200M Co-Axial Master Chronometer collection. While the black on black model is probably my top choice, that white dial with blue bezel option is talking to me. Though, at these prices, you are gonna want to get a lot of mileage out of these watches.
Now, I have experienced a similar sort of approach on another watch in the past, and I can say that, in practice, it works well. With a tinted lens, as we have here, you are able to peer into the movement if you want to. However, if you are simply checking the time, then the tint sort of masks the mechanical bits, making it easier to pick out the handset.
Unlike the previous TiVan 15 (a titanium alloy that, according to Jaeger-LeCoultre, is more scratch resistant than standard titanium) ref. Q203T540 (203T540) Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Compressor Extreme Lab 2 with black and red color accents this new for 2015 ref. 203T541 has black and blue elements, offering an additional flavor. Other than the new colors, all that appears to be different is that the 2015 Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Compressor Extreme Lab 2 Blue is not a limited edition. Again, I think that is interesting and speaks to the enduring popularity of this model (and hopefully that Jaeger-LeCoultre will revisit the high-end luxury sports watch in a more serious way soon. I've always felt that JLC was so good at being a sport watch maker, but as a company, they feel that their corporate identity should focus more on talking about their dress watches and Reverso models almost exclusively in their marketing materials and advertising.
Mickey Nolan: My guess is someone’s gone at it with tweezers, and they’ve messed it up. Someone that doesn’t really know what they‘re doing and doesn’t have the right tools.
The Kentex Marineman Seahorse is not a particularly small-wearing watch, at almost 45mm wide. The size is further emphasized by intentionally protruding screws in the lugs and the dimensions overall. While not over-the-top, the Kentex Marineman Seahorse feels like the pickup truck of dive watches - which is either an excellent thing or an undesirable thing, depending on who the wearer is. The crown screws down and has a Kentex logo, as well as being flanked by crown guards.
Unlike some other athletes whose personalities form more "PR friendly" images for brand ambassadorships, folks like Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao are complicated people whose histories are not uncommon in the world of professional boxing. Nevertheless, both Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao are masters of the sweet science, and it will be interesting to see their fight, even into what is now the twilight of each boxer's career, now 38 years old and 36 years old, respectively.
That actually makes sense, and the survival of President Obama, or any government leader is sifting through tons of information, getting the right type of advice, and being able to make quick decisions before moving on. Jacobs proceeded to tell me that in his research, he found out that for most of his memos, Barack has three simple choices to make as a response - "yes," "no," or "tell me more." Jacobs wants Olio to help democratize the luxury of having a support network of assistants for more people. That is a way of saying that the Olio Model 1 isn't just about the hardware and software on your wrist, but a learning engine that over times makes better and better suggestions for its wearer.
