Future Watch Tech Revealed: Nokia Eco Sensor Concept Is A Digital Watch You Want to Wear

The packaging of the Orbita RX is well done. It is like un-boxing a watch, expect that there is no watch inside. The entire winder is cased in a nice green box, which opens to reveal the winder inside. The first thing you experience is the thick smell of wood lacquer, an asset linked to the best part of this watch winder. Included is also some paper work, a CD-ROM, and a small screw driver. There are no printed instructions.

Wear Your NBA Team Spirit on Your Sleeve

For a watch enthusiast, the movement of a watch is a first priority of inquiry. The Citizen Campanola is a quartz movement, which is inherently not "mechanical." Most people investing in watches such as this will demand an entirely mechanical watch, as there is a premonition that quartz watches are cheap. This may be so for the most part, but Citizen was correct to use a quartz movement in this watch. The reason is the level complications. A mechanical watch that does everything the Citizen Campanola Grand Complication can do would be at least ,000. A brief list of the main complications are: time indication, full perpetual calendar with leap years, 12-hour chronograph, moonphase indicator, and a chiming mechanism that tells the time in a series of chiming sounds if you can read the simple code. All these features together are possible in a mechanical movement, but are rare and very expensive.

The Reign Of Sports Watches: What Everyone Wants To Wear Watch Style

The ornate detailing around the watch face is all part of the art deco theme. Use of well placed lines to enhance form while adding visual strength to the watch. Large hex screws are used to enhance the powerful look, and hidden lugs move into a vertically lined rubber strap with a secure metal clasp. The face of the Below Zero Diver watch is very legible and I like the use of a "0" at the "12" position. It not only embellishes on the Below "Zero" them, but adds to the watches identity as a measuring instrument.

Be Ready for Father’s Day with a Red Line Watch

The gold color of the accenting in the dial compliments the color of the DLC covered case. I would go so far as to say that it has a richer, prouder look. Even though a watch of this nature is meant to survive the extremes, it is more than even an attractive and functional watch for everyday wear. On top of that, Ball watches are a great value compared to other Swiss counterparts.

Being 25 and into watches does not always go together. Watches are inherently very expensive, and the cost of admittance into the hobby can be overwhelming. It is a hobby and passion of appreciation and style. You have to appreciate the beautiful, recognize the handsome, and critique the flawed. Few of us are hands on in anyway. Meaning we do not fix or modify watches, not do we really understand the inner workings for the most part.

This is perfectly illustrated by the latest chronograph model in its emblematic DS Podium line. Equipped with the famous ETA Valgranges movement for large watches, an automatic movement with a very long energy reserve (the power curve is very smooth), and a calibre that lends itself very well to customization, it is growing in stature and confirming its temperament.

Houston, Tranquility Base here. The Eagle has landed

The most notable watch to epitomize this style, at least in a modern sense is the IWC Portuguese Chrono-Automatic. A venerable monolith of classic proportions and design, it is pure legibility at its finest. The frills on the IWC are in the construction and the materials used. You can opt for a gold case, and the IWC movements are world class, as IWC has been one of the gold standards of pilot's watches for many decades. IWC backs up its watches with a reputation for refinement and reliability, but you certainly pay a premium for it. Once you settle on a watch design you like, there are often many options when it comes to satisfying your new taste.

Invitation: OMEGA x Fratello Watches Speedy Tuesday Event At The OMEGA Museum in Bienne

Kobold Polar Surveyor Duo On eBay Ending Nov-28-07 17:05:41 PST: Two Gold Watches To Lust After Sales & Auctions You don't often see watches like this in pairs, but up on eBay for sale are a couple of 18k gold Kobold Polar Surveyor watches. One is all gold with the lovely metallic blue Kobold face, and other other is gold with a alligator strap and a black face. The bands are obviously interchangeable. Kobold watches are rare in the watch world for being an American company. Based out of Philadelphia, they use mostly swiss components are designed to be very rugged and functional. Knowing their upmarket appeal, Kobold does offer some of its pieces in gold as these two are.

However, the enhancement of the original C1 does not stop there, not by a long shot! A protective ring in white gold, fixed laterally by 7 self-blocking screws is enhanced by eight decorative elements straddling the bezel. These bastions protect a spectacular 3.30 mm thick sapphire crystal, which literally emerges from the case and displays a ruthenium dial set with 259 diamonds, 0.8 ct and its distinctive Concord seconds disk. End result, a dial literally covered in bling. Even the band doesn't escape this "special" treatment, the black rubber strap with a white gold folding clasp is set with 72 diamonds or 0.6 ct.

Tribute classic Pilot’s Watches IWC Replica

Up for review today is a dive computer wristwatch from a lesser known Italian company: The Immersion Prowler. It's a digital data logger, dive computer, and full-featured watch, all in a 200m (660ft) water-resistant housing.

The four watches in the collection are named after the painting displayed on their face. They color of the watch body and strap was chosen by TechnoMarine to compliment the art on the dial. The four choices are:

Analysis: Both watches have names that are a whopping seven words long! I think they each could have added a couple of more words to the names to make them sound more dignified, like the tittles of foreign dignitaries. However, there is only a limited amount of real estate space on a watch, and there must be room for other things, like time telling.

Sedna Gold Speedmaster Racing Master Chronometer

You'll notice that like Rolex Submariner bracelets, the bracelet of the Seiko Prospex Marinemaster is tapered someone for maximum comfort. Pricing for this watch however is far lower than any Rolex Submariner. Sitting near the higher end of the Seiko line, this model is about ,500, and is only officially sold in Japan. Your only bet is to travel to Japan or order one online.

Even though the watch is so reminiscent of Americana, European born Jorg Hysek was commissioned to design the piece. Hysek is a legend in his own right having designed many famous watches including the Kirium series for Tag Heuer, and the Breguet Marine. Now Hysek has his own brand of watches and pens under his namesake. Check out the current Jorg Hysek line.

The discs are displayed in an attractive arrangement on the face of the watch under well designed bridges. They are obviously the highlight of the watch, but are equally attractive as a design statement as they are functional elements. Adding to the musical theme, the border around the face is broken up into section that look like sheet music (without the notes). This is a subtle, but nice touch.

Labor Day Watch Finds!

When art and watch presentation intersect, it is easy to go overboard with too much. This is why I am happy to see the AXIS/XXVII Time Spiral - Ref. 6270 from Angular Momentum. They've taken the spiral design, and ingeniously integrated it into the watch face. You'll notice this is no mere spiral painted on a watch, but the actual numbers and layout are integrated into the design, which is still perfectly legible as a watch.

The best branding these days comes from unique uses of existing words, or modifications of existing words. The tech and internet world has brought forth the greatest ingenuity in name branding in the last 10 years. Names like Yahoo, eBay, and Google, are either existing words, arbitrary tech nominers, or respelling of obscure words. This is the trend as complex branding has made it difficult to effectively trademark all but the most abstract of terms and phrases.

The French watch designer has been taking the watch world by storm since the release of the BR-01 Instrument watch series several years ago. While the BR-01 took inspiration from plane instruments, the BR-02 is all diver. The wearable submersible is not only a precision timing instrument ready to dive deeper than you ever will, but is also it is a handsome, masculine design well capable of continuing the reputation Bell & Ross has garnered.

Unlike the previous sale I mentioned, the sale here directly from Marcello C. offers a greater selection of Marcello C. watches. What this means, is that you have a chance to get a range of rare Marcello C. watches that are almost impossible to come across even used, and in April you can get them for at least 10% off. I do like the sound of that.

Classic Complication & Beauty In The Maitres du Temps Chapter One Watch Watch Releases The gentlemen who designed this watch really put in their heart and souls. For this watch to be so complicated and yet still look so good is a feat in itself. Often times the more you throw in a design, the worse it ends up looking. This is not the case here, as the eye is drawn to the larger shapes instead of the smaller details. When the user requires information, you can easily access the relevant field of the watch, without distraction or visual impingement. The overall shape you first notice is the tonneau case so artful and tasteful. But then, you are are drawn to the almost cushion shape of the actual dial, and the two smaller windows with the moonphase and day, which are above and below. We are not used to this separation in a watch face. We timidly accept this brave move and accept the success with which the face has been adeptly broken up. New dimensions are added to this graceful machine we gaze at, and a respect develops for that which is complex beyond our own abilities. A trait which is certainly enhanced by the skeletonized movement view within the tourbillon window.
