The U-Boat Classico A925 is based on the basic 53mm Classico watches. The case is entirely made of .925 sterling silver and is finished with a fine brushed polish. The A925 is equipped with a thick sapphire crystal and see-through exhibition back that offers a view of the infamous ETA 2824 calibre through a skeletonized silver plate. More silver is present in the dial's numeral and index hour markers. A black plate, placed on top of a silver one, has the hour indicators cut out of it to reveal the precious metal bellow. Basically the time is indicated on what is sometimes referred to a "sandwich" dial. A black leather strap finishes the simple monochromatic look of the watch. Combine this with the lustrous qualities of sterling silver and you got yourself as elegant a U-Boat watch as you can get.

I really love the case that Prometheus provides with the Ocean Diver watch (they give you a T-Shirt as well). It is brown leather, and  folds open while it is secured by an elastic loop. The housing for the watch is really firm - protecting it from shocks or being smooshed in luggage. The soft inside will also protect the watch's finish. In all, the Ocean Diver delivers on its promise, a nicely made, highly functional, true diver's watch with a Swiss movement for a reasonable price. At 5 (339 euros) it is hard to beat what you get here. Plus, the watch is a limited edition of 500 pieces giving it an addition level of exclusivity. For all that I give the watch an aBlogtoRead.com good value award. You can get an Ocean Diver watch directly from Prometheus's website here.

Although it's initial designs were just ok - Dior Horlogerie is now successfully asserting itself as a daring brand to watch. Many watch critics like to argue the credibility of watches associated with jewelry and fashion houses, and try to downplay their value. But with designers such as Victoire de Castellane, Kris van Assche, and, of course, John Galliano, you cannot simply write-off Dior as just a pretty watch.

Swarovski Octea Sport Ladies' Watch Watch Releases

This is holding true for their timepieces as well. As a relatively new extension of the brand, the watches are just a continuation of trends and designs that have already proven successful in their fashion and handbag lines. But one problem that seems to be clouding Gucci watches is that what works for handbags, does not always work for watches.

The steel cases watch is 46mm wide and 100 meters water resistant with a screw down crown. The rose gold color is PVD applied, which is pretty decent. The case has some brushed and polished sections which is nice, and I really like how they integrated the polished chronograph pushers. Hopefully a watch like this has a little sparkle to it when you wear it around. The bracelet is where you see a lot of the Defy X-treme influence (and just normal Defy line). The gold colored center link has that "file" look of textured metal that came from machinery originally. In watch terms the pattern is called "Clos du Paris," but this is not quite what watch makers had in mind when they named the guilloche pattern. With polished steel links on the side. Looks like the bracelet is tapered a bit, which is nice. There are also versions of the watch that employ titanium... at least in the bracelet.

One thing that is interesting is that Rolex apparently hates these watches. I've been told that if you have a modified Rolex watch, never send it to Rolex for servicing (they might not exactly send it back the same - and with a "restoration" bill). Chew on that. Not such a big deal though as Rolex movements are famously easy to work with. I sometimes ask watch makers their favorite movements to  repair or work on, and "Rolex" is often the answer.

You’ll notice the new texturing in the middle of the watch display. It looks pretty nice, but I can’t tell if it is trying to emulate wood grain or a topographical map? Probably wood, but you can never be too sure with watches based on navigation! The KonTiki is a classic looking watch with a high degree of legibility. Classic enough to sit on anyone’s wrist, but it has enough character to stand out. It is really the little touches on the watch that add to the appeal. Take for instance the cross stitching on the fabric strap and the lovely blued hands and indicators. With hands the right size and finely applied hour markers, it is really a refined look. The small dash of red color of the seconds hands is a nice touch as well.

WatchDODdy.com has no less than 15 watch deal of the day websites listed right now. Plus, they are listed in order of "time ending soonest." Meaning that the deals are listed with the one's ending soonest on the top. You get the name of the site that offers the deal, the name of the watch, the price, and the time left in hours (no minutes, sorry - you aren't scoping out auctions on eBay here). I like that if you hover your mouse over the image of the watch, it expands - showing you a bigger image of the watch. If you want to get the watch or look more into it, just click it to go to the originating page!

Overall, the people behind WatchDODdy.com have built a nice little web application that is good for you, and good for me. Most of the deals are under 0, and some are for significantly more. Still waiting for that ,000 watch deal of the day though. Anyhow, WatchDODdy.com is a good find, and thanks to the person who filled me in about it.

Using the movement is nice. The crown makes a bit of an odd noise when you use it for winding, but it feels like it is contacting the gears securely. Operating the watch is simple, and the chronograph pushers have a secure, if not heavy feel to them. The 6 hour chronograph works just as expected. Overall the movement feels a lot like a slightly less expensive version of the Valjoux 7750, which it essentially is from a hierarchy perspective. There are certainly no 7750 based watches at this price. Pictured is an ETA C01.211 movement, but with a Tissot logo (which is also a Swatch Group brand).

This article is about two things. First, about the very nice Seiko Ananta Spring Drive watches (yes they are available in the US), and also about "what you need to know about the Seiko Spring Drive movement." In addition to the Spring Drive version of the Ananta watches, there are also versions of the watches with in-house made in Japan, Seiko automatic mechanical movements. Though I am going to save additional discussion of them for another article.

See for example this gold Chopard L.U.C Slim. Sure it is a very pretty watch, but the price is probably over ,000. It looks great, but is it "THAT" great? Not sure. The Noramis will set you back about 1,380 euros retail (maybe ,500 bucks in more places). Inside the watch you get a Union caliber 25892A2 (which is really just a Swiss ETA 2829) automatic movement. Realize that the Chopard is manually wound. The Noramis is just 11mm thick, and the case is 40mm wide which is enough given the thin bezel.The crystal of course is sapphire and the case is water resistant to 30 meters.

Have you ever been interested in an IWC Portuguese watch but couldn't afford it, or didn't want to spend the money on it? For many people, this superb classic is the epitome of luxury and style, but sometimes it is too much luxury. There are actually not too many similar watches out there (especially when it comes to the non-chronograph versions). So it is a good thing that Jorg Gray thankfully steps in to this niche with the JG1060 line of watches. The  collection has a few varieties, and this pictured version is the Jorg Gray JG1060-20. For lovers of large watch out there who want something more classic in style - this is an ideal choice. The JG1060 watch is a massive 48mm wide! Really nice and big on your wrist. Other versions of the JG1060 range has different colors or slightly different dial designs - all IWC homages.

This is holding true for their timepieces as well. As a relatively new extension of the brand, the watches are just a continuation of trends and designs that have already proven successful in their fashion and handbag lines. But one problem that seems to be clouding Gucci watches is that what works for handbags, does not always work for watches.

Watches such as this are very hard to get and usually need to be arranged directly through G0S. Good news one of their dealers is located on James List. You may be able to bypass the wait, and give for the retail price of ,600. Pricey maybe, but uniquely Nordic in fashion, and certainly unlike most watches out there.
