Hands-On - Omega Speedmaster Professional Silver Snoopy Award

Omega Speedmaster Alaska Project

What is different about this Hamilton Seaview Automatic Diver watch? I thought about this question for a little while before writing anything down. I know I have seen the nautical almost art deco themed font used for the numbering before. The font is sort of an amalgamation of everything ocean-worthy and futuristic from 1920 -1970. Gently shaded, the large applied number totally make the watch. Without them it would be just another passable for forgettable Hamilton watch. The watch is pretty big too at 46mm wide, and the relatively small numbers on the rotating diver's bezel don't help the large wrist footprint. But that is OK, you want a nice looking watch like this to standout.

Inside the watch is an automatic ETA 2893-A2 movement that is the 2892 with an independently adjustable GMT hand. The movement has some nice blued screws and slightly decorate black automatic signed rotor. Nothing too special about the movement though. The screw-down crown works well and has guards on it built into the case. One area I would like to have seen improved is the water resistance. I know that this watch is not a divers watch, but 50 meters of water resistance means that Ernst Benz probably doesn't recommend you shower in it. I would have liked to see the watch with 100 - 200 meters of water resistance to give it that same type of durable character as the Rolex. UPDATE: I realized that the written Ernst Benz materials were wrong and inadvertently neglected to read the 20ATM that is actually written on the back of the watch. So the Chronoflite GMT is actually 200 meters water resistant, sorry about that. So, actually you can go swimming with the watch I am sure. and showering is probably OK, but for the price which I think is around ,000 - ,000 bucks. If you are looking for a solid GMT watch and can handle the price - this is a great option from a low volume, high quality watch brand.

It is really all the little details that makes this watch stand out. For example, did you notice there is no crown? Yup, none. The watch caseback is used to adjust and manually wind the watch (though the movement is automatic). So you see those little balled nubs in gold around the back of the case, those are to help twist it. The time can even be set under water. Cool right! There are almost no dive watches that can boast that. Inside the watch is the Pita-003 movement which I read is based on a modified ETA 2678. The movement will be modified with two patented systems which is necessary due to everything that is going on inside of the 18mm thick case of the Oceana watch. Did I also mention that is water resistant to 5000 meters? Yea, really nuts.

A Hands-On Omega Speedmaster X-33 3rd Gen Review

The Perrelet Turbine watch caused a lot of stir when the images of the watch that will be released in October 2009 were displayed here on aBlogtoRead.com first. Then the Turbine Collection video was leaked was really hit home exactly what the Turbine Double Rotor watch was going to look like in action. I think it is clear that this special timepiece collection is going to be a big hit for Perrelet. A few days ago I got to experience pre-production models of the watch myself - and they are sweet!

The first Bell & Ross BR01 watch focused on the middle era, while the quartz BR watch came second - and now the BR Heritage is the newest in the collection. At first glance, the BR Heritage looks a lot like the standard BR01 (or BR03) watch line. When you put the two together, you can easily see the differences. Aside from the vintage colors, the hands and indexes are a bit different. The BR Heritage goes Panerai style minimalist having less indicators on the dial. The hands — equally as effective — are more classically instrumental in design.

Hamilton Seaview Automatic Diver Watch

Hamilton Seaview Automatic Diver Watch

Say hi to the Sea-Gull M177s. It's a classic men's dress watch, in the style of Jaeger-LeCoultre.

There is a reason I am going back and forth between the term bracelet and strap for this watch model to discuss the mesh steel. It is honestly a hybrid of both. Like a strap, it disconnects all the way without a deployment, but has something more interesting than a mere buckle. The unique patented attachment system on the strap works really well. The first step is sizing it. You place the watch on as you'd like it to fit, and the move the adjustable clasp over notches built into the mesh to a suitable location. This requires using a rigid tool (to release the lock on the clasp). Now that you have a suitable size for your wrist, each time you put the watch on, it fits the same, with the excess strap easily fitting around your wrist. Putting the watch on is simple to do, even with one hand. There is a little hook on one side of the strap that sits over a bar on the other side. Once you connect this (really easy), you push down one locking clasp to make it secure, and then another locking clasp (similar to clasps on diving watches) to make it doubly secure. For this reason, this watch features what I would consider to be a 'double locking clasp strap.' When closed, it looks clean and feels secure on your wrist with the Skagen signature staring back at you.

Omega Speedmaster 50th Anniversary Prototype

The majority of new Breitling watches that are released don't excite me. It is a lot of the same to be honest. Oh look, another chronograph watch in a heavy highly polished metal case, maybe with a rotating bezel or a slide rule. That is basically most Breitling watches - although some are better looking than others. This watch is different because it is of the few that has the cool SuperQuartz calibre 78 movement. This is the movement that the famous and popular Aerospace models had. Yes, it is a quartz movement, but it is what is known as a "themoline" quartz. Meaning it has a temperature sensor that adjusts the vibration frequency of the quartz crystal to adjust to temperatures so that the watch can remain as accurate as possible. This takes the watch from being accurate to within a few seconds a month to being accurate to within a few seconds a year. Like the original Aerospace watches, the Airwolf Raven is a COSC certified Chronometer.

The BR Heritage will arrive in two model sizes, the 46mm wide BR Heritage BR 01-92, and the 42mm wide BR Heritage BR 03-92. Each comes with the (very slick looking) new branded thick leather strap. The case itself will have a different finish as well. Instead of the more modern machined look as the original line, the BR Heritage will have a bead-blasted carbon powder coating on the steel case — giving it a vintage aircraft instrument look. Inside the watch is still the ETA automatic mechanical 2892-2 movement.

Never before Tag Heuer Aquaracer Replica

"Let me reintroduce you to a very old story: Emerging country X starts making widgets of type Foo. Initially, their efforts are poor, and established manufacturers mock them. Over time, X works hard, improves its product, and starts making better and better widgets, all of the while doing so for less money. (Insert sideshow of political protests, tariffs, etc.) One day, everyone wakes up and notices that X's widgets are better and cheaper, and just like that the older manufacturers have to start playing catchup.
