Watchstars Awards 2015-2016 Selects Speedmaster Professional As "Stars For a Lifetime" Winner

Hands-On Omega Speedmaster Apollo 13 Silver Snoopy Award Review

This includes mostly brushed finishing to the cases and bracelet, as well as the hints of red color on the dial. You'll also notice that compared to many other Grand Seiko cases, the Grand Seiko SBGR and SBGX range has rather wide lugs and are a bit more thick overall due to the inclusion of the iron core. This helps them wear larger, despite the rather medium dimension of the case size which is just under 39mm (38.8mm wide to be exact). The lugs also happen to have an interesting and modern angular design to them. One area where the mechanical and high-end quartz versions of these watches differ is case thickness - by almost 5mm. Equipped with what is perhaps the most impressive high-end analog quartz movement around, the caliber 9F61-based SBGX family of watches are just 10.7mm thick, while the mechanical automatic Grand Seiko SBGR models contain an in-house made caliber 9S65 and have cases which are 15.3mm thick. That is a serious enough difference that they wear larger. Ideally for me, I would have a 40-41mm wide SBGX with the quartz movement and the slimmer profile. Both are good options though.

Arnold Schwarzenegger is an impressively accessible person who very much feels like the sum of his life which combines being an athlete, businessman, actor, and politician. Friendly and charismatic, Schwarzenegger continues to pursue his passions as someone who seems to genuinely enjoy what life has brought him. As a watch and car lover, Arnold agreed that the highlights of his year are going to classic car week & the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance near Monterey, California, as well as Baselworld.

What I really like about the MMT platform is that it isn't about phone notifications on your wrist. I've played with devices that tell me I have new e-mail and unread text messages or if a call is coming in. I've just found them by-and-large to be rather useless. What I am looking for, is a smartwatch that acts smart and looks smart.

Please Help Us To Find This Stolen Speedmaster (Stolen in Berlin)

Mickey Nolan: Yeah that’s right, I’m going to strip down a Rolex Submariner Date 16610 with a 3135 movement. It’s probably the most common Sub out there. They were made from the late eighties all the way up until 2010. This particular one is from 1995. It’s just come in. It looks to be in pretty good shape, but it’s fast, so it needs checking over.

Dutch King Willem-Alexander Wears An Omega Speedmaster

All 172 components of the Roger Dubuis are hand finished. This kind of dedication to the craft is what has earned every item produced by the fully-integrated manufacture the Poinçon de Genève. The Geneva Seal guarantees excellent quality and confirms the origin of the timepiece. The price of the Roger Dubuis Excalibur Knights of the Round Table II will be 8,000 – a king's ransom, maybe, but if you can afford it you'll be getting the jewel in the crown of this exciting brand in return.

In person, the Hokusai wave pattern on the dial of these JeanRichard Aquascope models is pretty cool. I wouldn't say that the designs "pop" as much as they do in the marketing photos, but the theme of the dial as well as the Hokusai art are not lost and neither is any significant dial legibility. Being a bit of a Japan-lover (Japanophile), as well as a fan of Hokusai's art and traditional Japanese woodblock carving, I knew that little could sway me away from disliking this watch. Especially since the JeanRichard Aquascope is a timepiece I've felt positively about for a few years now.

Omega Speedmaster Professional Starmus

Oster Jewelers: Watch lovers in Denver are like Art collectors. There is a tremendous appetite for knowledge and education and a desire to own the very best in every category.

In the end, this is another solid tool watch from Ball, albeit one with an interesting twist hiding up its (and under your) sleeve. The Ball Engineer Master II Slide Chronograph can be yours for a price of ,299 on the rubber strap, or ,399 on the steel bracelet; availability will be sometime in 2015.

Hublot Classic Fusion Chronograph Aerofusion The Watch Gallery Limited Edition Watch Releases

Anyhow, "the wave of new smartwatches" – as HM&C calls it – is very much here, and it is slowly but surely turning out to be much more of a tsunami than a drop in the ocean. And while that in itself is no news, it is very unusual to see a high-end watch manufacturer address the issue with such an open assault. The point they make is very valid, as the mechanical timepieces – even those with simple functions – are incredible works of engineering; and so ones with additional functions, enhanced ergonomics and autonomy really do represent the finest achievements in the industry. And yet, the battle between smartwatches and some of the finest in traditional horology is Marvel superheroes against the Spartan Leonidas' army at Thermopylae: a few with magic-like superpowers against a couple hundred battle-tried veterans armed with experience and traditional weaponry. In this case, it's colorful touch screens and wireless technology against meshing wheels and chamfered metal. In essence, it is a senseless fight and one that I wish would not be happening in the first place – in an idealistic way I wish they could "co-exist peacefully".

Our friend Mr. Chalmers at Calibre 11 nicely profiles the "Watches of Aryton Senna" with more history, and you can see that the quirky TAG Heuer S/el ref. S25.706C was one of Aryton's preferred watches. The funny thing is that the TAG Heuer of today would probably never produce such a model with its analog/digital dial and odd hybrid bracelet/strap. With a 1/100th of a second chronograph, it isn't too difficult to imagine why it was a preferred watch of a race car driver. More so, this S25.706C was part of the larger TAG Heuer S/el collection that later gave birth to the TAG Heuer Link collection, which only got its name in the late 1990s.

The in-house flyback chronograph movement is visible on the sapphire case back showing the gold rotor that is tastefully decorated. As I mentioned before, the movement is reversed, with the chronograph pushers on the left, which facilitates usage at the track.

If you like the look of the 2015 limited edition Grand Seiko 62GS case and want something a bit more interesting (or light weight), then you can opt for the Grand Seiko 62GS models with caliber 9R65 Spring Drive movements (mechanical watch with a special quartz regulation system for enhanced accuracy) with 72 hours of power reserve. These are extremely pleasant on the wrist in the 40mm-wide titanium cases and add a power reserve indicator to the dial, thanks to the movement. Accuracy goes up to a deviation of about one second or less per day. For these Grand Seiko 62GS Spring Drive watches, you can opt for the SBGA125 with textured cream dial or the SBGA127 with the metallic blue dial.
