There are few things as sweet as getting a newly restored vintage watch. You get the pleasure of nostalgia, along with that special sense of personal touch from a master restorer's handiwork. It is a good thing as Martha Stewart would say. Bob Thayer is in the business of repairing, restoring, and modifying all types of watches, with a bit of a specialty on Seiko watches. He has something special for sale which I thought would interest you. This watch is one of the Seiko Bell-Matics. A mechanical alarm watch that was extremely popular "back in the day." They are no longer made, and while these watches can be found, so few are in good condition. In Bob's capable hands, you get a stunning vintage watch ready for daily duty - with a loud alarm. The watch is available restored, for 5. Here is a intro into the watch by Bob:

Many say that it cannot be done - a 1000 meter water resistant diver's watch with an internal rotating bezel. Why? Well, it has to do with the crown that rotates the internal bezel. Unlike the crown for setting the time than can be tightly screwed into ensure high water resistance, the crown for adjusting the internal bezel needs to be functional, even deep under water. Part of this dilemma is purely academic, because people can't even dive that deep and live. So you could theoretically have a crown for the internal bezel that does ensure water resistance to say 300 meters, and then would need to be screwed down beyond that. LUM-TEC isn't interested in such trivialities. It wants to make a 1000m diver watch with an internal rotating bezel. I can't wait to see how they attack the challenge.Read more ›
About two years ago I embarked on an intellectual conquest regarding the state of umbrella technology. Based upon the conclusion I had come to regarding the antiquity of most umbrella designs, I figured it was high time for something better. What I realized is that a simple thing like having a covering from the rain, is a dilemma that our brightest engineers seem to put little effort into. Honestly, the basic umbrella design has to be 250 years old. Other then new materials and some fancy springs, little has changed for 95% of the umbrellas available.
The rest of the new Franck Muller Tourbillon Lady 3080 T is equally petite. The 18k white gold tonneau shaped case is 42mm high, and 30mm wide. Surprisingly, it is only 10mm thick, which makes it very thin for a tourbillon watch. It is manually wound in-house movement with 80 hours of power reserve in two barrels. Pretty nice for a such a small watch. On the back of the case is another sapphire window for a view of the movement.
The watch really excels in looks. The retro techie design looks like a prop our of a 1970-80s spy movie. Tokyo Street has a strong point when it comes to this, and I am amazed that the watch is a legible as it is. The sleekish off centered design and green (no idea if it does anything) target window just looks cool. Makes me want to launch a ICBM.

Well, sometimes a watch comes out that just epitomizes a brand, and a theme; like started saying earlier. It really sums up most of what a brand is trying to be. Here, I am suggesting that the Super Avenger Blacksteel chronograph includes most of what Breitling wants to be known for. However, conspicuously missing is the complex slide rule bezel! You have a automatic mechanical chronograph movement, inside of a very large (48mm) black steel case. The black coating is a exotic carbon nitride-based movement, which is even more rugged than PVD.
