In my opinion the watch looks great on both the black calfskin strap and metal bracelet. Though being a fan of good bracelets, I have to recommend that you go with that model if possible. This watch isn't the timepiece to end all timepieces, but makes for a great daily wear. If you had just one nice watch, then the Vintage BR Sport wouldn't be a bad option. I certainly want one. Plus, it is the type of design that will look good now or in 20 years. Price is ,500 on the strap and ,800 on the bracelet.
The AC01 case design is pretty cool. It is mostly steel with some titanium and is 42mm wide (by 40mm tall). The cushion-style case shape and thickness allows it to look larger than it is. The long lugs move to wrap around your wrist for pretty excellent comfort. The wealth of screws on the lugs and on the dial/bezel make for a neo-industrial look.

First of all, the entire set will be launched on October 12th, 2012. I don't know if that is only in Japan or internationally. I believe that the models will be mostly available in Japanese retail locations with some internet sales and possibly limited distribution internationally. If you want one, start checking online in a few weeks. Let's get on to checking out these cool Star Wars watches.
Internet sales for the Swiss watch brand Chopard will currently only be available in the United States. In reference to my above statement (ironically), Chopard USA President Mr. Marc Hruschka stated that, "the watch and jewelry market has changed dramatically in the past four or five years thanks in great part to the rise of social media, and we aim to be on the forefront in all realms, including luxury e-commerce." Chopard continued to point out that the e-commerce site is intended to service people outside of metropolitan areas who cannot visit a Chopard retailer. In defense of their retailer network, Chopard does state that the experience of going to a store and touching and feeling a product cannot be reproduced online.
The watch is based on the newer, larger Navitimer models with Breitling's in-house made Caliber 02 automatic chronograph movement (70 hour power reserve). This is the same as the 01 movement, but with a 24 hour dial. Plus, for "historical" reasons, Breitling made the watch manually-wound. I would have preferred it to remain an automatic, but Breitling wanted it otherwise. Maybe so that you too can be just like Scott Carpenter aboard the cramped "I hope I survive this" space capsule. I would have liked to see the waivers NASA had him sign in 1962 about how they will do everything possible to keep him alive, but nothing is guaranteed. Today we look back on these monumental missions with awe and pride, but at the time it was like a really fancy backyard home-made rocket launch experiment. You expect a cool take off but after that you just hope for the best and that the brains did their work back in Houston.
According to a few people at Jaquet Droz, the Grande Seconde has always been a controversial piece for them. Some people love it, and others don't. One issue some people have had is that it doesn't necessarily fit into the brand's current DNA. There is nothing wrong with that. Some of the coolest watches around don't necessarily fit in the aesthetic DNA set forth by their brand siblings.
