Welder K26 Watches Give Color Options With Four Interchangeable Crystal Lenses

The newest Elemental is the "Hard Black" and shares most of its features with the previous Linde Werdelin Elemental watches save for the new case material. Getting on the DLC bandwagon (that I predicted would occur) with other fine watch brands, Linde Werdelin likes what DLC can offer. Again, DLC stands for "diamond like carbon" and is a coating on metal that makes it crazy hard, and crazy scratch resistant. This might explain why this new watch is called "Hard Black." The nature of DLC makes for a glossy black/dark gray colored case which is increasingly refined in its look. The earliest DLC watches found a home on Japanese watches such as Casio (the MR-G). These were excellent G-Shock type watches, but sometimes the DLC coating was a bit too glossy for my tastes. The newer iterations of DLC are getting better and better.

De Bethune DBS Digital: A Calendar Watch For The New Year Watch Releases The DBS digital ("digitale" if are speaking luxury pretentious) is an extremely basic looking watch from a functional standpoint, and that is the whole point. You have this amazing looking designer case, high grade materials all decorated, and then this simple digital (mostly) display. The time is shown on the bottom via a jumping hour window, and the minutes are on a revolving disc. There is no seconds hand. Above, you have the calendar portion of the watch. Displayed in a row, a series of concentric discs display the day, date, and month. We Americans prefer the month to be displayed before the date, but this is a European designed watch (where the standard order of theor calendar data is different), and you should be happy that the indicators are even in English.  It is just that simple. Five pieces of information displayed in a very basic, but effective fashion. If you turn the watch over, you get a starry display complete with constellations, and De Bethune's iconic rotating orb moon phase indicator. Have no doubt, this is exclusively a luxury watch. The moon phase orb is platinum, and the movement powering this deceptively simple watch is a complex mechanical machine.
