Championship Week Watch Frenzy…

Historical Bulova Accutron Spaceview Electonic Watch Is Futuristic (For 1965); Immensely Collectible Feature Articles

The images themselves are supposed to represent basic maps of the areas that Marco Polo and Christopher Columbus explored. That is sort of a tribute to the explorers I guess. It doesn't actually say anything about them, at least not on the face. So basically my opinion is that while these are nice watches, they aren't nice enough. Vacheron Constantin seems to be a bit hit and miss these days. That is ok, they are trying though. We will see what they spring on us next.

Functionally, the Ulysse Nardin Macho Palladium 950 contains the Ulysse Nardin UN27 automatic mechanical movement that has been COSC certified to be a Chronometer. The movement's functions include a small seconds display, date, and power reserve. Important information that is well laid out on the dial. I especially like the minimally sized power reserve indicator that is still highly functional. The hands are broad and effective. And the texture layering on the dial is effective in making the watch a noticeable and respective luxury wrist companion. One thing I really like is the polished metal ring in the date window. As the date dial is inset a bit, the inner part of the date window from the dial to the disc is highly polished and adds an interesting effect.

Well one of their new watches falls in their Nazca line. A watch featuring an interesting facet cut hexagonal case. The new Power Reserve model makes a sporty line, even more sporty by adding number around the bezel, and featuring a more aggressive dial design. RSW puts a lot of emphasis on the attention to detail in the cut and design of the case, which includes very well cut edges ("chiseled") and contrasting polishes. Like most RSW watches, the crown is a special crank system that one twists out and turns (like a crank) to adjust the time). It is an interesting quirk at the least.

Romain Jerome Crisis Tourbillon Watch: This Small Company “Knows No Crisis”

Decoding The MSRP: What Retail Price Means, And What You Should Pay Watch Buying Prices are a funny thing. We often don't understand why we pay what we do, nor do we often understand why some places can or do charge more for the same goods. In the retail goods market, there is such a thing as the MSRP, or manufacturer's suggested retail price. I have no idea where this price comes from. The best I can understand, there is a secret smokey room meeting where such numbers are obtained. MSRP prices attempt to combine the cost of production along with design, marketing, administrative costs, distribution, and of course profit.

Now lets get to the watch itself. I will begin with some positives. The moment you first handle a Mark T-57, you instantly find something to like about the watch. It is, in a manner of speaking, a beautiful design. Timeless, legible, and very attractive. It has a wonderful wealthy demeanor to it. Sometimes I will wear it and not know whether I am worthy. Is it the Tiffany & Co. name? Maybe the elongated Roman numeral on the face that reminds me of board meeting watches. Whatever it is, the watch is just a little bit better than me in personality. The case is extremely well defined. You'll find lots of details in the many lines and contrasting polished and satin finished areas. There are also areas of brushed steel. Think of the Mark T-57 case as being architecturally designed. The case is about 43mm wide. The bracelet is approx. 19mm wide.

Going To Be In The Netherlands In Early December? Attend Watch2008: The Independent & Innovative Watch Maker Show Shows & Events
Wow, I really want to go, but being in the US makes things hard. Watch2008 (Yes, there will be a Watch2009, etc...) is going to be an excellent show and dedicated to smaller and innovative watch makers that are more dedicated to the craft of making quality watches than some marketing image. An impressive list of manufacturers includes several I have never heard of, and plenty whose watches I will be lucky to ever see at all. There is something exciting about this. Especially owning one of these watch and knowing that you are likely the only person in your county (if not state) to own one.

So if you want an everlasting tribute to manliness in your watch collection, and you like the Breitling style, the Super Avenger Blacksteel chronograph watch is the way to go.

Archimede has been making pilot watches of this ilk for a while. The various models skewing the look in various manners, but now with the Pilot H, they have taken things back to the drawing board. The result is something totally stripped down; bearing what is arguably the essence of the genre. You have a brandless dial, with blued hands, and a sober black and white color scheme. Instead of the "historical" manual wound movement, I am very happy to see that Archimede inserted an automatic ETA 2824 movement in the Pilot H. While I appreciate a nice manually would movement with a see-through caseback window, I prefer the convenience of a automatic, and I simply don't understand why more companies that make historic 'looking' watches use more practical movements.

Nivrel is a line that offers sub-00 watches to ones that in the many thousands. This means they have the know how to create something world-class in design and appeal, but can also down market their watches a bit. Nivrel watches have always been known as one of the highest quality affordable German watch, but they are not alone in this distinction. This particular watch embodies a few really nice features. First is the satin and polish finished high-grade steel case that offers a lovely traditional look, as well as durability you can rely on. The guilloche term refers to the machine engraving on the dial of the watch which is often hand done by unique and often antique machinery. Notice the historic font used for the Arabic numbering. Nivrel has experiments on these watch utilizing Arabic and Roman numerals. I tend to think that the Germans are better suited to Arabic numerals, while the Swiss can be left to meddle with Roman numerals.

Be clear that I didn't purchase this watch for the name, but rather for the looks. Though I would be lying if I said that I didn't like the fact that the name of the watch distributor (Tiffany & Co.) doesn't add some value to the watch in my mind. I am careful to say that Tiffany & Co. does not make this watch. They don't make any watches. They outsource the design and production (like they do with most of their designs and production), and sell it under their name. Sometimes they commission designs, other times they seek out designs that fit with their overall line. While Tiffany & Co. has been selling watches for a long time, it has not been their forte. Recently, they made a deal with the Swatch Group. They also made a deal to distribute Patek Philippe watches. What the future holds for Tiffany & Co in terms of watch is unclear, but it looks as though selling watches will be a greater part of their business model. More on their current capacity to sell watches in a bit.

Triple Watch Mobile Phone Concept By Manon Maneenawa: A Realistic Phone Watch Luxury Items Typically concept phone/watch combinations are intriguing, but so far away from practicality or the limits of current technology that they are only worth a brief glance. Then there are those things that actually look as though they could work with what we have today. This is why I am excited about the Triple Phone Watch concept.

eBay Buying And Selling Tip: How to Handle The Reserve, An Often Ill Used Tool Watch Buying In addition to looking and fawning over watches, I also buy them on occasion. A typical venue for my consumerism is eBay. I like the thrill of the search and finding a rare item, as well as the system used to win auctions or purchase items. eBay is a wonderful resource, and I recommend it as a tool for everyone, regardless of whether you buy or sell. As such, I like to take the opportunity every once in a while to share tips and thoughts on using eBay based on my years of experience.

Dievas Oceantimer 1330 Blue Is Nice Budget Diver Watch Sales & Auctions There is a lot of competition out there for your diving watch dollars. With so many options, it is hard for us to find that single diving watch that will suffice. Well, for me there is no one watch. Instead I try to stretch my budget out to acquire as many diving watches as I can to satisfy that insatiable hunger. So for that I am happy that Dievas has a nice range of aggressively prices diving watches that embody the modern chic-strong look that many diving watches are adopting.

These watches are based on the existing UF6 series from TechnoMarine, but have some added design features and the diamonds of course. The watches are actually pretty nice to look at. Having a unique technical and futuristic look, they are proud looking without being too avant garde. The centered date at the top of the dial is good location, and the large subsidiary window for the seconds hands communicates strength in execution. Also well done at the long hands which don't suffer from the "stubby" quality that often is the case in women's watches. I can easily say that no matter how "out there" TechnoMarine gets with its designs, I have never seem them sacrifice basic functionality.
