Tag Heuer Heritage

What drives my passion for watches is not only the representation of time - and the complications - and the intricate dials - but the faces of those who feel the same. Especially when you get them talking. No matter what they do for a living, or who they are day-to-day, their interest in watches shapes them and their professions in so many intrinsic, unifying ways.

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!

I will admit that there are some models within the line that are a bit too over the top, (see entirely diamond set Hello Kitty face models). But for dedicated fans of Hello Kitty and timepieces, I am sure you will find a model that works for you.

Romain Jerome Titanic DNA Tourbillon Steampunk Ala Grande Limited Edition Watch Watch Releases

The Romain Jerome Titanic DNA Tourbillon Steampunk Ala Grande will be part of a limited edition of just 9 pieces. Not sure how that measures out into the various different materials available for the watch. In addition to a rubber strap, a black crocodile one is available. Price will be well north of 0,000, maybe even north of 0,000. It is hard to gauge how optimistic Romain Jerome's CEO and lead designer Yvan Arpa is feeling. This is the watch steampunk watch to own this season, and priced for the independently wealthy mad scientist in us all, who rejects such fancy things such as electricity.

Aside from the extreme case, the CX Swiss Military 20,000 Feet Diver is a pretty solid all-around watch. Inside, is a specially shock protected automatic Valjoux 7750 movement that has been certified as a Chronometer (COSC award watch). The case is of course highly anti-magnetic, and the dial is clear with hands that offer a very generous amount of SuperLuminova. The case features the necessary for diving rotating bezel — that is well designed to fit over the very thick sapphire crystal. The case also has a helium escape valve.

My first important watch purchase was when I graduated from Yale and had my first opera contract. I purchased a stainless steel Rolex Submariner because this model is very sturdy, durable, classy, and ocean ready.

Hands-On With The Perrelet Turbine Double Rotor Watch Collection Hands-On

This is the first new Franck Muller watch in sometime - which makes sense as the watch maker has had to lay-off people due to a reduction in demand. The development of a few watch is very expensive, especially with a maker like Franck Muller. They don't just get a movement from ETA and built a watch around it, but rather build their own movement, or have one made for them. This with the physical design of the watch takes years, and is a huge investment. For a watch maker to stay in the spotlight, they must release new watches on some regular basis, unless they want people to think that are going under. Well Franck Muller is not going under and this new Triple Scale Chronograph Ratrappante Ref. 8883 watch.

Here is the beautiful and uncommonly sporty new Polo Chronograph from Piaget that debuted at SIHH this year. What I really like is this video from TheTimeTV.com that has Piaget themselves casually discuss the watch. I love hearing that smooth French accent discuss this fine offering, from a fine watch company. Interestingly enough their primary focus, is my primary focus: ease of life with the watch. They aren't going on about the luxury of the watch, but rather the functions, comfort and overall quality. It is really refreshing to hear that (especially from Piaget) that them going on about how this watch "defines haute horology."

See Hamilton Ventura watches on eBay here.

How I love this luxury watch, let me count the ways: It has amazing internal mechanics, is totally original for a luxury watch while being extremely functional, and it looks great! What more could I want? Well aside from enough money to actually get one. Starting at about ,000 I should start saving up. This is Germany's A. Lange & Sohne new Lange Zeitwek watch. If anything, it is a solid way for Lange Uhren to position themselves as a creatively innovative watch makers, in addition to being cream-of-the-crop luxury.  I've been waiting to write about the Lange Zeitwerk on aBlogtoRead.com as I may accompany it with a interview with an A. Lange & Sohne engineer that worked on the watch. Would that be of interest to you? Check out the article on AskMen.com via the link below.

It was only a matter of time before Hamilton decided it was time for a real rehash of the classic Ventura watch. This is not to be confused with now defunct Ventura watches. The Ventura watch model from Hamilton first came out in the age of pre-quartz electronic watches. When "electronic" watches meant something futuristic and exotic. It was the spacey look of the watch that really mattered though. At the time, it was really "out there." Shaped like a shield on its side - many with the popular two-tone leather strap - the Ventura has been in production for over 50 years.

Special pyramid texturing on the dial really makes the watch special. Just a gold watch would be one thing, but this is a watch with a gold personality, and that is not just me sounding cheesy. It retains everything you like about the Bell & Ross instrument look and appeal. I like how the gold hands are skeletonized so that you can see the gold underneath. The numerals are gold on gold, for that golden look. Gold screws stand in for the typical steel, actually I don't need to mention all this, you get the point - GOLD!
