Overall the watch works well and is nice to wear. It really satisfies that need for wanting a classic aviation style timepiece with a modern look and feel with a unique style. Price for the Tutima Grand Classic Chronograph watch is a pretty reasonable ,200 - which is probably for the leather strap version and a bit more for the metal bracelet. You can get less expensive aviator watches out there, but not too many with the history of Tutima or the admittedly high quality that I observed with these watches.
See for example this gold Chopard L.U.C Slim. Sure it is a very pretty watch, but the price is probably over ,000. It looks great, but is it "THAT" great? Not sure. The Noramis will set you back about 1,380 euros retail (maybe ,500 bucks in more places). Inside the watch you get a Union caliber 25892A2 (which is really just a Swiss ETA 2829) automatic movement. Realize that the Chopard is manually wound. The Noramis is just 11mm thick, and the case is 40mm wide which is enough given the thin bezel.The crystal of course is sapphire and the case is water resistant to 30 meters.
This is another cool DLC coated watch. It is one of their diver watches and is the Ball Engineer Master II Diver GMT watch. The dial is black with gold tones - and lots of gas tubes! There is a large internal rotating bezel and the central dial is for the GMT hand. The case is 42mm wide and comfortable on your wrist with the textured rubber strap. If you don't like the gold face, there is also a white on black version available. A true diver with 300 meters of water resistance and again an automatic movement. Price for this new model is about ,500.
In addition the other metals, each case has a lot of titanium in it. Likely all the PVD black coated material that you see on the case and bracelet. The cases actually are available in two sizes, either 50mm or 44mm wide. Depending on how big you want to go. The dial are functional and attractive. Nothing out of this world, but a bit more exciting looking than your average aviator inspired watch dial. The guilloche engraving on the dial steps the novelty up a notch. Avenir Chrono is beginning to remind me of a higher-end version of Formex actually, with a jewelry store twist. Pricing for the steel versions start at about ,500. Steep, but not ludicrous for a Swiss chronograph watch of limited production. Go to platinum and the prices jump to about ,000. Get some diamonds involved on one of the "Black Snow" models and you are looking at prices from between ,000 - 0,000. Now you have more ammo in your watch knowledge weapon when trying to figure out what the next urban music star you see is wearing.
Orbita Sparta 1 Tesla Watch Winder Review
Many, many of you want a simple and classic watch versus everything else that is out there. These watches don't have the immediate sex appeal of a lot of the complex or flashy watches that are out there, but instead grow on you like a good friend, instead of grow tiring once it takes you too long to figure out what time it is. This is the Union Glashutte Noramis, and this type of classic watch has just two hands, and a simple and appealing dial. Really just want you need to have you tell the time, but isn't minimalist in design. Faceted Dauphine hands with an index laden face and soft dial are perfect for that functional classy look that many search for. Here you can have a German Union Glashutte watch, for a good price, that will serve these need. And really, do you want to spend a lot on this?
The retro feel of the watch is enhanced by the tan strap that together with the highly polished case and matte black dial make for a good look all around. It is easy to forget that the watch is essentially a entry level timepiece at just over 0. Certainly a much higher level of character than most other watches in this price range, and it is nice to have an automatic movement. One thing I like about the particular Miyota movement inside the watch is that unlike some less expensive Japanese automatic movements, this watch can be hand-wound if you wish - an important feature for me. There are a couple of little things I would have liked on the watch including AR coating on the sapphire crystal as well as lume on the dial as well as the hands. Again, I am mindful of the value pricing of the watch and realize that in all, this is a fantastic value.
You loved the Perrelet Turbine watch collection. It was not only a popular watch to look at, many of you enjoyed it. Will it will finally be available starting this weekend at a special Perrelet watch event that will be held at the Lussori luxury watch store on Carmel-By-The-Sea, California (August 29-30). In addition to the Turbine watch, there will be other interesting Perrelet timepieces that will amuse and delight (and possibly lead to a new purchase). Among the crowd will be Virginie Perrelet, who is related to the great Abraham-Louis Perrelet of "way back when." Please don't pester her with questions about what Abraham-Louis was like.
The Lange 1 Tourbillon was actually released on the 100th anniversary of Emil Lange's release of his tourbillon pocket watch in Paris at the beginning of the 20th century. Dates and anniversaries are important to watch companies, but it does help put into perspective how nicely stable the watch industry has been... even over decades or centuries. The Lange 1 Tourbillon was produced in a limited edition of 250 pieces in 18k rose gold, and 150 pieces in platinum. The watches are pretty hard to find. In 2006, one of these watches in rose gold sold for about ,000 at auction - just a few years after the watch was sold. Interestingly that was was not even in what I would consider mint condition. One of these watches is available on James List for about 0,000. I don't specifically know the condition of the watch, but the price should be negotiable. At the very least, the watch almost epitomizes the authentic luxury end of the spectrum, of the watches that came out during this era. It was a thin golden age of watch making excess, that may not come back again in such a force for decades.

In the future, I anticipate that Orient will have a full line of manually wound watches, and then eventually watches that have both manual winding, and automatic winding (just as Swiss automatic movements do). Orient takes the time to decorate the movement with perlage polishing. Overall I am happy with the movement as it has nice operation and is made Orient themselves. It is a nice value for the money. Feels smooth in operation, and it is nice to wind via the top-mounted crown. It has all the feeling you want from a traditional style manually wound mechanical movement. You can see the movement through the sapphire caseback window. Lovers of this genre can't really go wrong.
'Ode to be different.' Isn't that the message most items of independent ilk wish to aspire to? To be different yet plausible is one of the key elements of creative functionality. It is easy to be creative when you simply make something "new" by adding a previously unused color. It is more difficult to be creative to the extent that you offer something instantly familiar but "different." For me, that is part of what the Linde Werdelin SpidoLite watch is all about. Offering the functionality you expect, with something unique you can't get somewhere else.
Functions! Functions! Functions! This is the newer line of Citizen Eco-Drive Chrono Time AT watches. Pictured are two of the models with the all steel version up top, and the limited edition gold-plated version below. Though other models are available. Breitling proved to the world that men like busy dials. With the advent of the Breitling slide-rule rotating dial, very world of busy pilot watches was born. I have yet to meet people who actually use the slide rule bezel, but they do succeed in making the wearer look more important. This isn't the first Citizen watch with a slide rule, but it may be of the nicest. One thing different about this Citizen Chrono Time At watch compared to a Breitling, is that the Citizen has many more functions.
