The Real World of Watches – Who We Are

It’s Time To Buy In Bulk Now!

First, see the official statement/announcement that has recently been released, then read my comments below it:

What I am going to start doing is talk about some of the watches that make the "top 5" in the various lists. These watches differ, sometimes daily, so I'll talk about different watches from time to time. This particular Casio watch was listed at the number 1 best selling watch in the sport watch category on this particular day in August 2008. Lets take a look at the watch and what I think makes it a good seller.

I've never owned an Austin Healey, but my father did when I was a kid. And, I recall sitting in the driver's seat as a child and feeling excited that someday I may get to own a car such as that. It was a regular guy's cool car, and it was the best of an era. While he sold the car long ago, I still remember it, and he will appreciate this watch.

Now You Can Have Your Luxury Watch And Wear It Too!

Time Suspended

As you can see from the images, you have the end result, the original Seiko SKX013 and the watch it was based off of, the Seiko Orange Monster. With a little bit of imagination, and the follow through to put your ideas into action, you can have an endless amount of customized watches. Right now this Seiko Orange Monster mod in mint condition (by high hobbyist standards) is available for 5 (includes shipping). It looks just like the Orange Monster, but smaller, and with a different bezel, that is arguably an improvement. If you are interested in purchasing this unique modified Seiko watch, please contact me here and I can arrange for the seller to contact you.

So begins a series of articles that will appear both here and on Luxist.com chronicling the many lessons I learned, and splendors I witnessed as a guest of luxury German watch poster child, A. Lange & Söhne. To help all of you, I am going to first assist you with the pronunciation of the brand name, which I only recently mastered. Phonetically, it is “Ah Lhangeh und Zoneh.” For convenience, I am going to leave out the umlaut over the "o" in "Söhne," but it should be there. What elevates Lange watches to the highest levels of luxury is the fact that they design and manufacture their own watch movements, apply the highest standards of quality to each step of the manufacturing and decoration process, and utilize only the highest grade materials in each watch they produce.

Hands-On The IWC Pilot Replica

The Tourbillon carriage, which is fitted outside the movement and case where it is suspended, literally, rotates in a multi-dimensional manner on two axes, the main one being vertical. The design of this disconcerting time device borrows its rigid and light structure from renowned cable-stayed bridges; an extended arm of cables fastened to the plate holds the cage in a vertical position, thus highlighting the sensation of autonomy.

We will see what happens. Antiquorum holds about three auctions a years, and the haul is large for them each time. Stay posted to see how things pan out for Maron. Perhaps he will change policies on Timezone.com so that they aren't seen in such a negative light. The watch industry landscape just keeps getting more interesting!

Stylistically you have an interesting quandary. What do you make of a watch without the watch? Although the time is displayed, this is really a bracelet. I have mixed feelings about this piece, but I lean toward liking it. In my opinion it is not a watch, at least not in the traditional sense, but more a functional bracelet. Perhaps there is no real distinction, but for some there might be. Bracelets come and go into style, even among those who would not ordinarily wear watches. Adding a bit of functionality (the ability to tell the time), might attract a different demographic than those strictly used to wearing watches. So in a way, this concept is a thematic barrier destroyer, which is good. Given demand, this watch (or whatever it is) might be made, arguably should be made. You can easily appreciate that even though it is simple in design, the concept is quite complex.

Flashback 1996: WorldofWatches.com Starts An Online Revolution

New Temption Cameo Watch Finally Available Watch Releases

None of these watches are left from Korsbek, because they all sold out. Fortunately, you can still some these some things on the market via private sellers. This one on eBay is a reasonable ,600 (approx), which is fair given the rarity and what you get. I love seeing watches out there like this. Never say that it is a Kobold replica brand, it is merely a brand that makes a good product with a similar look. Think of all the similarities as a Korsbek compliment to Kobold.

Inside you have the familiar high quality Swiss ETA 2894 movement with a 30 minute chronograph and big date module. Each integrated nicely in the bi-compax subdial design. Notice the month indicator window between "4" and "5" o'clock. The good thing about the calendar in this watch is that it is an annual calendar. That means it known the difference between a 30 and 31 day month. You only need to adjust it in February. Like most mechanical watches of this nature, you can view the movement through the sapphire window on the caseback.

Style on the Dial with Megan Harris: Time to Borrow from the Boys

Survivor Man Les Stroud was wise to choose this watch for its durability and usefulness. Exactly the type of watch I would predict the guy would opt for. It looks big and chunky on his wrist, but really isn't that big in comparison to the T-Touch Expert. The Trekking line is of the harder T-Touch watches to find, but certainly of the nicest. Oh, and look for the rare version with flame graphics on the face.

In a nutshell, the device is a folding phone that fits on a wrist strap. When the phone is folded, a smaller anterior screen displays the time. To use the phone, the wear slips out the phone and unfolds it. A concern immediately appears, but I think is easily dismissed. You can surmise that because the phone separates from the wrist strap, they can easily become lost from one another. However, mobile phones aren't typically latched to anything anyways, so these phones could be just as easy to lose as any other. Second, if you lost the wrist strap, it doesn't look like something that would be too expensive to replace anyway. Thus, I don't think there is too much of a risk of loss, and there must be some way of securing the phone into the wrist strap harness. No big deal there.

*UPDATE* Due to the popularity of this article, I thought it a good idea to link to an article of mine on choosing a wrist watch for hardcore survival scenarios. The Tissot T-Touch doesn't make it on this list, but for a very specific reason that you'll learn when you check out the criteria.

Enamel Protocole XXL Watch Collection Furthers Piaget's Obsession With New York And Paris Watch Releases What started with laser engraving on the side of a watch case is turning into a trend and serious art form for Piaget. Last year they released two watches with such laser engraving; the Piaget Polo Tourbillon relatifs. One was of a Paris skyline, and the other of New York. Each was done with incredible detail and was a shining example of artistic use of the technology. Only a few of each was produced, with pricing in the astronomical region.

The cut-aways on the case might take some getting used to, but are a refined look, and I think will have lasting appeal. In terms of the automatic movement, Svend Andersen is going to give this limited edition watch line an excellent treatment. A unique engraved titanium rotor is placed on the movement, and the overall movement is decorate and modified. I am very excited to see one of these new SpidoLite watches in person. They are going to be officially debuted at Baselworld in April, with availability starting soon after. The edition is limited to 222, 44, and 44 pieces for the different versions of the SpidoLite line (titanium, DLC, yellow sapphire). Price will be around ,000 with availability directly from Linde Werdelin themselves.

There is also the big date function, which looks nice, and the subsidiary seconds dial, which is also 'OK.' The watch epitomizes acceptable boldness, standard eccentricity, and mediocre excitement. The best part is likely the hands. So those are pretty well done, but then again they look like Japanese cartoon swords stuck in a watch face. Inside the Zodiac ZMX 03 is a Ronda Startech quartz movement, and the 50mm sized case is massive with 28mm wide lugs. A sapphire crystal face helps to give this watch some justification for its price, but not much. Retail is 5, but don't spend a penny over 0.

Information suggests that Maron has a large financial stake in Antiquorum as well. So, another possibility is that he basically bought his Chairman role at the company. Maron, owning a very large watch dealership might have been able to afford such a position or stake at the world's largest (depending on your definition) watch auction house. Each highly profitable ventures. It is certainly conceivable that Maron invested his way into Antiquorum. And if this is the case, I think him all the more impressive.

The movement is manually wound with an impressive 8 day power reserve. I would have liked to seen a power reserve indicator though. The crown is on the top of the watch and it is used for winding and setting most of the functions. Because the calendar will need to be adjusted from time to time (at least once every four years if this is a perpetual calendar or if you forget to wind it), there are a few inset adjuster buttons around the side areas of the 43mm wide, 18k white gold case. If you look at the palladium dial, it is decorated with vertical lines polished into the palladium (different tones) metal. This is known as Côtes de Genève decoration. So when you see that phrase you know what it means (but if you are reading this, you probably already know that right?). As you can tell in the pictures, the colors of the dial seem to change a bit based on the angle at which you are viewing it. Price for the DBS Digital is probably ,000 - ,000. That is my educated guess  because prices for watches like this aren't made widely available. If you have to ask you can't afford it right?
