The bracelet uses a modified construction versus the original but is still great looking. The outside is all horizontal links and on the wrist it looks great with the tall design of the case. I love the look of the watch on my hand. The dial is still the minimalist, but highly functional design we have come to like. This is another "cross-hairs" style dial that for some reason I always find attractive and functional. Inside the watch is a Swiss Sellita SW300 which is an analog to the original Swiss ETA 2892 automatic used previously. The SW300 is the same movement by another maker. Brands like Porsche Design and many others are using Sellita movements as ETA is offering less and less to non-Swatch group brands.

The T-Touch technology from Tissot watches (developed for them by ETA which, like Tissot, is Swatch Group owned) is finally making its way down-market to Swatch. This will debut in a new collection of watches called the Swatch Touch. These fun digital timepieces will come in a host of colors and have no pushers/button. Rather, all the functions of the watch will be activated via touching zones on the dial.

Collecting Vintage Omega Watches Feature Articles

Last night here in Los Angeles I was invited to view the traveling roadshow which is the Only Watch 2011 timepiece collection. On an arduous trip around the globe the 40 or so watches up for auction later this month in Monaco will have made only two stops in the United States before being bid on by those interested in acquiring these one-of-a-kind pieces.

All retailers mentioned increasingly educated watch consumers showing up in stores over the last few years. Manfredi and Topper both shared that they are extremely impressed by the knowledge and information many consumers have before they walk into their stores. While Audemars Piguet stresses that "there is no such thing as an easy sale," Westime explains that knowledgeable customers make for more simple transactions. These "customers know exactly what they are looking for, and once they find it, they buy it." Topper welcomes brands with large promotional campaigns that often drive customers into the store ("watches with enormous marketing machines behind them sell themselves"), but also finds joy in teaching customers about less well-known or niche brands.

As a collector's item a watch like this will certainly have appeal to some people, and not others. The detail involved as a Jewish cultural watch is interesting, and I think that all people can appreciate the technicality and in-house made movement. Price is not entirely unreasonable at about ,000 -,000, and you can see one available on James List here.

According to Dedegumo, they hire artisans who are Japanese trained to make all the little parts for these fascinating timepieces. All of this seems to be based on some old technique from Kyoto - so I will just take their word for it. These artisans reside in the boutiques and are making watches all the time in there while you shop. Using many of the same tools as watch makers, they create custom little parts and designs for these artistic timepiece creations.

Very rarely do I get to review a watch that is actually a remake of another watch the brand made just a few years earlier - that I also reviewed. This Marvin Malton 160 Rectangular Flying Hour watch (ref. M024.14.41.64) is a follow-up piece to the brand's previous Marvin M014 watch that I reviewed here. In addition to a new case design, the new Malton 160 (to be honest I still don't understand what the "Malton 160" name in new Marvin watches means) Rectangular Flying Hour piece improves on two important areas over the original.

Rolex is hinting here that the Daytona line will see some changes in the coming years. I don't think they will discontinue the 40mm wide model, but I expect a new, larger Daytona with a new movement to come from the house of Rolex soon.

In this watch is a quartz ISA movement with the time with subsidiary seconds dial, moon-phase indicator, tidal range indicator, and the date. The subdial for the moon phase is pretty minimalist. It uses a hand and no pictures of the moon to indicate the basic phase of the moon. It actually works rather well for those who don't need too much imagery and is technically useful to those wanting to know when the best waves will be.

Other signature TAG Heuer references include the screws on the handset’s reinforced chassis, which echo those on the casebacks of TAG Heuer chronographs. The unique autolock system on the side, which gives quick access to the SIM card, the connection port and the memory card, sports the TAG Heuer’s shield in black lacquer and looks like a classic TAG Heuer timepiece crown.

Aside from the tubes in the hands, you really can't see the other tubes unless you are in the dark. They are integrated into the flange ring and seen through the 12 little angular holes. The standard applied hour markers in white are what are more visible in normal light. What I believe Mondaine was going for here was to retain the core look of the watch but also add the functionality of the gas tubes.

Few watch brands would do something wild like this, but Artya would! Strange and poetic, you have to appreciate the political message and sentiment behind the brand's new one-of-a-kind "Bye Bye Euro" timepiece. It combines humor and art to comment on the fact that the Euro as a currency might have not been the best idea.

Cartier Ballon Bleu Extra-Flat Watch Hands-On Hands-On

For 2012 Piaget will release this very special watch that furthers their desire to be the thinnest around in a number or categories. Last year it was the Altiplano 43 Automatic that was the thinnest automatic watch with the thinnest automatic movement. This year (perhaps among other "record" things) Piaget will offer the thinnest skeletonized automatic watch around with this strikingly good looking Altiplano Skeleton Ultra-Thin timepiece.



Bell & Ross specifically didn't want to offer just a ceramic version of the BR01. They wanted to offset it with a few other special parts. For those not familiar with the collection, the BR01-92 refers to this three hand version with standard date. The "92" in the name refers to the Swiss ETA 2892 automatic movement housed by its unique case.
