World of Watches Series 2013: Wear Your Team Colors on Your Sleeve

Overall, it is the entire design of the Pink Panther that really appeals to me. It is a new type of showpiece, and is deceptively feminine. Going back to my previous tangent on mental association, the Pink Panther (named as such due to the diamonds and the rose [pink] gold) does not come across immediately as a woman's watch, but if you give it that role, it functions well in a unique and refreshing manner.

Well lucky for us, one is available on eBay right now. The Temption CGK203 is no longer made and went through a limited production of only 1100 pieces. Though there is an updated version, The Temption CGK204, these remain distinct watches that simply share the same movement, which is the highly complex ETA automatic Valjoux 7751. The 7751 is based on the popular Valjoux 7750, but added to the movement is a full calendar, moonphase, and 24 hour hand. It is one of the most feature rich movements out there, especially at the price. Better yet, Temption does an excellent job of making such an array of complications and information still very legible.

The Grand Complication houses the most popular complications that are desired, but in a hand-assembled quartz movement instead of a mechanical movement. I've commented before on the cost of a mechanical watch that houses all of these complications. Figure at least ,000 and up, and up, and up. The retail price of the Citizen Campanola Grand Complication is about ,000, and on eBay it can be had for less than half of that right now. The available piece is in mint condition and was likely originally purchased from an overseas Campanola dealer, even though it is being sold from the US. I highly recommend this watch, and you can read all about it if you click on my review above.

Pump-Up Your Weekend With An Invicta Bolt Chronograph

The watch hands and hour markers are richly covered in a very bright luminant that works beautifully. This watch is easy to read in the dark with a sharp looking lume that isn’t blurry. In the event you are in total darkness, a red hued backlight glows against the LCD panel where you have the option of reading the time along with other information. The watch bezel rotates in both directions, and functions to assist with keeping track of north during certain periods of navigation, or helping you stay on a bearing. The bezel rotates smoothly, but a bit to easily in my opinion. I would have liked just the slightest bit more effort required to move bezel. A minor issue though.

The SpidoLite starts with a Linde Werdelin Biformeter watch case (I reviewed a Linde Werdelin Biformeter watch here). The case is then partially skeletonized, especially the dial (on one version), and constructed out of titanium. There will also be two titanium versions covered in DLC (diamond like carbon). The titanium used is the high quality grade 5 stuff that you ideally want to have. The face is a thoroughly modernized and redone version  a design Linde Werdelin has become well know for. A very interesting touch is the minute ring which is almost fluted just like the bezel on watches like the Rolex Datejust. I've never seen that before, and the use of faceted blocks is really cool. There are two versions of the dial. One is partially skeletonized to reveal parts of the movement below, that is my choice. There are also two versions of the crystal. A standard clear sapphire crystal, and a hip looking yellow tinted sapphire crystal that looks stellar against a black DLC coated surface. Linde Werdelin is getting good at making watches that really look out of this world.

It’s Clocktoberfest and WorldofWatches Is Celebrating With Savings On Today’s Best Selling Watches

Over the past year the look of the blog has developed, and so have my contacts in, and knowledge about the watch world. I have a lot of plans in the works to further improve the site, and your ideas are more than welcome. Among those things that I have learned, not all are pleasant. Getting to know the watch industry and online watch retailers has been a mixed bag. While I have made new friends, and gained much insight, there is also a distinct dark side that I have begun to uncover, and currently still fight against. What is the manifestation of this dark side you ask? Different forms present itself in sites that intentionally attempt to confuse the consumer, malicious competitors, technology connected villains that wish to harm my site, as well as those people who just don't like anyone talking about their watches without their consent. Why all the negative attention? Because in addition to the people who appreciate my opinion, there are those bad sports who just can't take some productive criticism or alternative ideas. If you put a product out there on the market, you need to expect a consumer reaction. I tell it like it is, and never hesitate to provide my informed opinion that I always try to explain as best possible.

RGM makes watches in Lancaster County,  Pennsylvania, which is a hub of American watch making. In fact, the majority of hands-on watch making that occurs in America today is in, or near Pennsylvania. A fact that strikes me as curious given the remote nature of some of these towns, but makes sense if you compare it to fine German and Swiss watch making towns. You'd be surprised to know that most of the independent watch makers in Germany and Switzerland are based in old farmhouses or alike building in tiny rural areas. take the famous Glashutte region, which is basically a one street village. I don't know why this is, but it must mean that watch makers don't like to be bothered. Thus, you'll find a lot of homegrown American watch making in what is essentially Amish country. Go Figure.

My Top 5 Vintage Omega Speedmaster Watches

Size again is very ordinary at 42mm wide. Not too small, not to big. Perfectly medium in all ways. The elegant curves on the bezel are also welcome. I like how they focus on functionality, but there is just something nicely nautical about the look. This otherwise straight forward diver's watch has all these little hints of character that make it standout, but never in a bad way.

You can see me happily brandishing my Pipboy 3000 in the images below. It is a fun addition to my otherwise non forearm sized watches, and Iove having it as part of the large fan base of the Fallout series. I am sure there will be some of these popping up on eBay. Check out Fallout 3 if you have the time and want some post0apocolypitc good times.

Performance Engineering wrist model SIHH IWC Replica New Show summary

I am in Germany maybe 10 minutes and the signs of watch insanity are in my face. On my 4 hour layover in Munich to Dresden I am surprised to see that Munich's domestic terminal is basically one big watch store. There is a huge open watch store in the middle with tons of rare brands, and those that you don't even see in America at all, such as Certina and Union Glashutte. There is certainly an air of haute horology already. The first picture is of a magazine and gift store display. They actually highlight their collection of watch magazines! This is just too much good stuff, and I am on my way to being prepared for A. Lange & Sohne's upcoming spectacular display.

This is the current best of the Citizen Campanola line up in my opinion, and a watch that I have and reviewed here. It is one of my favorite watches in my collection. I see maybe 1-3 of these watches that show up a year for sale on the regular channels. Buying them in America is more or less impossible, although there is a small handful of authorized dealers. You really can only get them imported via online dealers and even then it is hard to find the watch. You've probably read my words on the Citizen Campanola line of watches pretty often; but I will indicate again that the Campanola line is highest quality luxury line of watches from Japan's Citizen watch group.

Jaquet Droz Grande Second SUW Watch: Sensitive Strong Looks Watch Releases Unfortunately, this otherwise handsome watch has had the ill treatment of yet another inept watch marketing or advertising employee. They selected to call this watch the "SUW." Yes, that means "sport utility watch," just like sport utility vehicle. Yea, you know what those are, and aren't you excited to see your watch (which might cost almost as much as the car) named after it. So what is the added sport utility of this watch? There is none, it just looks cooler and more aggressive than most Jaquet Droz watches. Faux armor plating. Is SUW a name worth placing on a watch this expensive? Of course not, it is a retarded name only a simpleton would actually place on a watch. I mean, would you buy a car called the Toyota SUV? No, you wouldn't. If you are like me, you are thinking to yourself, "what idiot let that name go to press?" Probably another watch marketing goon (no offense to the watch marketing goons that I know, its just that most of you know very little about watches and didn't choose your assignments). The message I want to make to the Swatch Group, and other watch makers is to please focus on making nice watches, and leave naming the watches to someone that actually does a good job at it (of which there seems to be a desperate shortage).

Omega Speedmaster Chronometer White Gold

Recently I had an opportunity to play with both the three hand and chronograph Below Zero models. The watch is nice and large, and looks rugged and stylish on the wrist, especially the three hand model. Hamilton is owned by the Swatch Group, and is really their "entry-level" nice watch. That is why the Hamilton line always has a broad range of designs in addition to its military inspired Khaki series.

Aside from all that, the Sinn U Black shares the same interesting Bauhaus design at the U1 and the rugged superman strength that Sinn watches are known for. Price? Not announced yet, but expect it to be a few grand. Nothing more.

WOW Profile: Lucien Piccard

No watch is a clear winner as they are each good at different things, even though they have a lot in common. I'd suggest that the Temption is a better value even though it costs more given its construction quality and details. The Square is going to be a lot easier to find given the higher volume output of Fortis watches and is about ,20o given the street price, while the Temption hovers nearer to 00). Further, while I am a fan of both designs, I am partial to the Temption for being outstandingly unique, and attractive, while serving admirably in ease of use. Neither of these watches is a bad choice though.

Tiffany & Co. Mark T-57 Automatic Watch Review: Sport And Formality Mix With Satisfying Results Wrist Time Reviews Actually, I went to a Tiffany & Co. store here in San Francisco to inquire about this. Remember, the instruction manual has no mention of fitting the watch yourself, even though doing so is really simple. Ah, and what a terrible experience visiting Tiffany was. Once I was instructed to visit "customer service" on the second floor, I had a feeling things were going down hill. There was no wait, and I got to sit down at an available desk station (think Lenscrafters) where a woman asked if she could help me (as though there was some other reason I was there). I then attempted to explain to her in as simple terms as possible, "can you find out if a half sized link is available for this watch, as there is no other means for precise fitting; and the watch is just a bit too loose or tight on me." What ensued was utter confusion at how I could possibly have this question (perhaps it was filtration of my words through her limited mental capacity). Apparently, it was too complex a notion that perhaps I was able to size the watch myself at home, given the fact that I don't work in the back room at Tiffany's. She of course had no idea what I was talking about and said the watch would have to be sent to the service center in New York. An idea that appalled me. "Look, I just want to know if such a part is available, and how much it costs." She then committed the biggest offense. I don't care who you are, but you don't take someone's expensive watch from them, and walk into another room and close the door. You just don't do that, especially without asking. So I sit there, extremely impatient and upset at her ineptitude, and ask someone else to go in and inform her that I am in a need to depart. A minute later she reappears and in no direct manner, says that no such part is available. I concede that I was stupid for even asking her, and left Tiffany & Co. in shame. Little lesson, don't ever go to a corporate store; A) expecting that they will place any value in your possessions, and B) with any hope that they will properly answer your watch related question, or even harbor the knowledge necessary to answer your watch related question.

Seiko Pullsse Odograph Watch Is Little Japanese Overlord Of Walking, On Your Wrist! Watch Releases It also looks like the LCD screen itself also have a few color modes and changes to green or red depending on whether you are acting withing a healthy heart-rate ro something to high. The watch also performs some basic calculations to determine calories burned. Essentially, the purpose of the Pullsse is to tell you how fast you are walking, how far you've walked, how many steps you've taken, but not where you are going. Internal memory stores information for about 12 days. So you know if you walked more today than you did last week. You wanted to know that right?

Carl F. Bucherer worked with Techniques Horlogères Appliquées (THA) based in Sainte-Croix to develop the movement. Inside are 29 Jewels with a 55 hour power reserve, with 30mm wide by 4.8mm high dimensions. While the movement looks very modern, most of the components are pretty standard high grade quality, so nothing worth mentioning that is special in that department. I am a bit disappointed that the movement only beats at 21,600 bph, which is relatively low as most high-end movements beat at 28,000 bph. This might have to do with the new shock absorption system.
