While not the largest segment, many photographers are ideal watch lovers. Equally obsessed with both aesthetics and technology, a photographer must have an eye for looks and the ability to work with accurate, yet delicate equipment. With all this case for camera equipment, a photographer wants to know that their watch will never be something they have to worry about, and is very legible. Being used to spend a lot on high quality cameras and lenses, most photographers understand that when it comes to machines, you often get what you pay for. The idea photographer watch is supremely reliable and legible in all conditions. Like IT people, photographer tend to focus on utility over style, but the difference is that photographers will actually rely on it more. Most photographer watches are no nonsense in looks with features that help with their everyday photographing needs. These functions tend to be a power reserve, chronograph, and large legible face. Among all their equipment, photographers know their watch will likely stay with them the longest or at the least, won't grow obsolete.

Note that the images of the Pip-Boy 3000 replicas above are of unfinished pre-production models, so the actual Pip-Boy 3000 replicas will undoubtedly be really nice. Actually, Bethesda wanted the included Pip-Boy 3000 model to function with the game, providing a special information display, but the logistics with that got way to complex. Leave it to game developers to be extremely optimistic and zealous about items like this. I am pretty happy with what you will be able to get.
Obviously I really like this particular Limes watch because it looks great and is an excellent value. Right now this watch can be had on eBay for a tad over ,000. I'd go for it, as these watches don't enjoy extensive distribution in the US.Read more ›

If you recall some older articles of mine, I didn't exactly speak to fondly of Antiquorum's totalitarian tactics behind their running of Timezone.com, which they own. The large luxury watch auctioneer has been around for a while focused on the buying and selling of uber luxury watches and people who feel comfortable writing blanks checks. They have some really nice watches of course, but take my word for it these people put the "snob" in "snobby."
So inside the Seiko Marinemaster pictured is one of Seiko's best automatic movements. The 8L35 automatic with 26 Jewels and a 50 hour power reserve. Accuracy easily matches certified chronometer levels, and often exceeds them. For example an average chronometer is accurate to within 6 seconds a day, while the Seiko 8L35 is accurate to within 10-15 seconds a month. Pretty nice for quartz crazy Japan.Read more ›
Apparently rich people don't read. And if they do, the only thing they can comprehend is marketing copy babble. For those of you who don't know, "copy" is an advertising term for language written for marketing (sales) purposes only. It is not mean to inform, but rather to persuade (in a sense). Other than nice pictures and the technical details of a watch, all watch marketing material language is utter sales dredge trawled up from the bottom of the deep public relations firm sea.
As part of this homage the China, Ernst Benz is very particular about pleasing the current Chinese government. The distinct reds of this watch are noted as "China Red." Statement about the government or otherwise? The black hands and cases of the black watches are done in PVD. My choice of course is the black PVD case model with the red face, black hands, and red alligator strap. Now that is a nice watch!Read more ›

Beneath the impressive sapphire crystal lies a panorama at its most extensive, giving shape to time, which becomes almost immaterial. While the dial strives to display the passing of time, it above all highlights empty space. The depth of its field of vision is dizzying and the feeling of levitation exhilarating. The officer-style hinged back excels in revealing the geometric circuit of the right-angled skeletonized bridges in a gigantic case measuring 47.5 mm in diameter and over 22 mm in depth. Its infinite precision holds many more temporal surprises…
I am sure that overall these are right nice, but honestly, when did the market get rich for safes that suddenly then needed to be designer. My safe is so sweet it has the attitude of a Bentley with the safety... of a Bentley? It looks like the logical combination of an expensive refrigerator, armored safe, and luxury humidor, and that is just the way you are supposed to like it.

Aside from the watch, there is the unit that serves as both the watch winder and clock. This structure is beautifully crafted, and you can really see where the steampunk influence comes into place. Exposed gears, both decorative and functional reveal themselves among a series of gauges and knobs. The Trilogie can be either plugged in or connected to a power source via USB. It is really a mix of electronics and mechanics. The clock is part of Erwin Sattler's Nautis series and is a regulator just like the wrist watch. Funny enough, the Nautis clock is not that much larger than the wrist watch, put probably enough to to be useful. Again, this is going to be mostly a super ultra showpiece.
You then have the oddly incorporated watches. Two automatic mechanical Swiss watch movements are in a section at the bottom of the phone. I don't even think the phone will get enough movement in your pocket to keep the movements wound. Why are these there? Mobiado says to add two time zones, but really it was just something to add. The mechanical movements are likely ETA 2824-2 movements, or something of the sort. Beyond being gold plated (or simply gold toned), they are not decorated at all really. The faces are skeletonized, which in this case just mean there is no dial. The hands are pretty boring, nothing special, and the placement of the diamond hour markers feels awkward. This is not a watch lover's timepiece-phone. Between the two watch faces is an "M" shaped diamond cluster. This is backlit when the keyboard lights up. The keyboard itself features those tiny keys that everyone hates to press. Nothing comfortable there.

In some countries were it rains often, umbrellas are basically disposable goods. Take Japan for instance. While there I noticed that you can get umbrellas just about everywhere you go. They cost about .00 each, clearly a price for a disposable good considering everything else there is so expensive. But for someone like myself... I would be willing to pay a bit for an awesome umbrella, which is one of the reasons I got really excited when I learned about the Senz umbrella while ago.
Swiss and German watch makers are a bit more protective of their craft and will mostly rely on "local" suppliers for everything. As such, there is a price to be deemed "Swiss Made." And that is really where you see the niche industries blossom. You have companies that just make watch cases, or hands, or do special engraving, or dials, or bezels. Then you get to the movements themselves. The "brand" typically puts the movements together and places them in the watches (the assembly phase), but the pieces that go inside the movements come from all over the place. Even if a movement "kit" is purchased from ETA, many of the smaller elements come from specialized industries. Parts like the mainspring, shock absorption elements, rotor, and others are sometimes sourced from highly specialized companies. If all you make is automatic mechanical watch rotors, you likely do it very well, and you'll be in high demand.

There is nothing wild about this limited edition Omega watch, and frankly that is the way I like my Omega limited edition watches. Nothing too avant garde, just a good sober looking timepiece with a nice theme. Omega is pretty much obligated to release limited edition watches for the Olympics. First, they are the official timekeeper for the Olympics (since 1932). Wouldn't it look silly if they didn't celebrate that fact every two years? Second, it is pretty much the type of marketing occasion you'd be an idiot to miss out on. For the 2008 Summer Olympics they released this really cool limited edition Speedmaster based watch, for 2010 it is back to the Seamaster for inspiration. The result is something impressively on par with the visuals in my mind when I think of the winter Olympics.
I am excited to see more of these Sea Touch watches soon while playing with them in stores and annoying sales people. The official release is going to be at Baselworld at the end of March. Expect retail availability soon afterward. Prices will most likely be between ,000 - 00.
