Jaquet Droz Grande Second SUW Watch: Sensitive Strong Looks Watch Releases Unfortunately, this otherwise handsome watch has had the ill treatment of yet another inept watch marketing or advertising employee. They selected to call this watch the "SUW." Yes, that means "sport utility watch," just like sport utility vehicle. Yea, you know what those are, and aren't you excited to see your watch (which might cost almost as much as the car) named after it. So what is the added sport utility of this watch? There is none, it just looks cooler and more aggressive than most Jaquet Droz watches. Faux armor plating. Is SUW a name worth placing on a watch this expensive? Of course not, it is a retarded name only a simpleton would actually place on a watch. I mean, would you buy a car called the Toyota SUV? No, you wouldn't. If you are like me, you are thinking to yourself, "what idiot let that name go to press?" Probably another watch marketing goon (no offense to the watch marketing goons that I know, its just that most of you know very little about watches and didn't choose your assignments). The message I want to make to the Swatch Group, and other watch makers is to please focus on making nice watches, and leave naming the watches to someone that actually does a good job at it (of which there seems to be a desperate shortage).

A powerful message
Faced with a scourge that undermines companies and countries alike, the Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie (FHH) has joined forces with the Federation of the Swiss Watch Industry (FH) to launch a vast information campaign aimed at the general public. It will take the form of powerful visuals backed by a simple, hard-hitting message: "Fake Watches are for Fake People." The campaign will be unrolled in the international media that are supporting this initiative. Clearly, the Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie, whose vocation is to defend and promote the values of Fine Watchmaking and its professions, could not stay silent in the face of counterfeiting. The time has come to challenge this plague on innovative, socially-responsible, high-tech businesses.

These are very high quality watch cases, that you can travel with. Inside each closing trunk is room for 51 watches, complete with various display modules, watch winders, drawers, mirrors, and other features for the distinguished watch fetishist. Frankly, I'd love one of these trunks, but it will probably cost several times the value of a new luxury car. Piaget themselves only commissions the watch trunks. The actual manufacturer is the esteemed French trunk maker Pinel & Pinel. They've been at the trunk and luggage business for a while and seem to be the proper source for the Piaget Collector's trunk. Other than watch travel trunks, they make some quirky travel trunks for the ultra privileged such as those containing entertainment systems, computer work stations, audiophile worthy stereo systems, and of course just simple travel implements. Oh, and one of their trunks is actually a terrarium. You know, for elitist lovers of pet reptiles and amphibians. Very nice stuff with the added perceived value of having a Piaget name on it!

Harwood, Original Maker Of The Automatic Wrist Watch Resurfaces: Look Past Lukewarm Looks For Interesting Designs Watch Releases If you ever wanted to know who the original maker of the automatic wrist watch was, it was Harwood, a British watch company. They didn't invent the automatic winding mechanism, that was done previously in pocket watches, but they were the first to bring them to the wrist watch with a patent in 1924. Founder, John Harwood was a soldier in World War 1 and a watch maker. He wanted to create a watch that could withstand the elements better, as well as make it more convenient. He understood that constantly winding a hand-wound watch exposed it to lots of dust and other types of wear. Thus, it seemed an obvious solution to bring automatic winding via an internal rotor to the wrist watch. The design of which needed to be miniaturized and modified to work best on the wrist, rather than the pocket. In addition, Harwood created an interesting crownless, bezel adjustment system.

The best part is the size. While I enjoyed previous Clipper watches, to me, they were always a bit small, petite even. With the 2008 Clipper Diver, size is up to 43.5mm. Suddenly I am more excited and take the watch all that much more seriously. Inside is a automatic Hermes Cal. H1. Hermes does not make movements, so this is probably an Hermes branded ETA 2892-2 or something similar. UPDATE: I recently learned that the H1 movement inside of this watch is the first in-house movement for Hermes. Actually that is a bit of a misnomer, because it is an in-house movement made exclusively for Hermes by Vaucher, but not by Hermes. The H1 movement is a double barreled movement with a power reserve of 50 hours, and uses ceramic ball bearings for the rotor that winds the movement. These ceramic ball bearings don't require lubricant. The case back as a sapphire window for seeing the movement.

A sick thing happens when you are involved with watches too much. You begin to anthropomorphize them to a degree; at least I do. Or in some instances the effect is less than anthropomorphism, but an animal-pomorphism. So I am treating this watch like a dog in need of a home. Only the watch will live a lot longer! And does not shed.

Reference 145.022 Speedmaster Professional from 1982

As a watch, the LUM-TEC M3 performs without fault. The quartz movement does its job without hesitation, and the included functions are useful. While the dial layout may suggest a 12 hour chronograph, this is actually a 30 minute chronograph with a synchronized 24 hours hand (useful for telling the difference between AM and PM). Owning this watch, you'll really be using the time telling function the most. The movement inside is not best suited for consistent chronograph usage. But if you are looking for a watch first, and a chronograph second, the M3 will suit you. Also included is an easy set date function. I like that the crown is screw-down, which adds a significant feeling of value to the watch. Legibility is good, and the view into the dial is clear thanks to the anti-reflective coating on both the top and bottom of the sapphire crystal.

Take a look at this aerial view of Glashutte. This is no city, and barely a town. Regardless, this hamlet is world famous for producing mechanical items of fascination unique to the region, steeped in literally centuries of tradition. I'll be taking my camera along with me, so stay tuned for a full expose. Oh, and don't expect the region to look as green in my photos. Remember, it is currently a cold winter in eastern Germany, and this California boy has little to no experience in such climates. So get ready to hear me talk about the definitive source of German luxury watch making, the A. Lange & Sohne manufacture, the people behind it, and mechanical wonders they produce.

The strong hands are laser cut so they look really sharp and precise. The best part is that they are long enough in the case, and allow for a very high level of legibility. This is really a problem with many watches, but not for Linde Werdelin who has thankfully addressed this issue in their watches. The watch dial is specifically designed to be read in many conditions such as low visibility or low light. Double-sided anti-reflective coating is applied to the sapphire crystal. This is basically a requirement for any highly legible watch as it more or less eliminates glare. I can easily say that this is among the most comfortable watches to read that I've worn. The seconds hand is tipped in a darker color which interestingly enough keeps it from being distracting and helps to emphasize the hour hand. Colors are applied in lacquer, which is unique, and works to Linde Werdelin's benefit. Really well done, and I like the attention to detail. On the watch you'll find a uni-directional rotating bezel. It is another precision cut piece of the case, and Linde Werdelin got it right. Clicking 60 times around the dial, it moves with assured confidence and a refined sounding click with each notch. It is a perfect mix between being easy enough to turn without being easy to move out of position. In addition to the numbered indexes on the bezel, it also has lots of applied luminant for easy darker condition viewing.

It is a modern interpretation of diving instrumentation, and fits in well with the rest of your SCUBA gear. This particular watch is not a mechanical movement based watch, but for the price, the ETA 955.612 quartz caliber is just fine. The case it held together by six large hexagonal screws.

The IWC Mark XVIII Replica Watches

I recall that as a kid, I was often really excited about the toy versions of items and implementations I'd seen in movies or comic books. The 'play' version of the Ghostbusters' photon pack just didn't remind me enough of the real ones on the screen, and the kid's Batman utility belt just didn't have enough utility, though it was booming with plasticine charm. I just never found anything 'real' enough to satisfy the desires I had (and probably still have) to live out fantasy adventures.

Now about 15 years later, Swiss Army decides to release a bit of a doppelganger, but sure isn't the only one the new Swiss Army Classic XLS MT watches are a analog-digital version of the standard Classic XLS line that features roughly the same styling and features as the Breitling Aerospace. Gone is the thermoline quartz movement, but also is gone the double or triple price of a Breitling Aerospace versus the Swiss Army watch.

Breitling Navitimer Replica Bandit

Never say that there is something wrong with the watches coming from Japan. There may be a ton of them, lots of them may be ugly or forgettable, but most of today's useful watch innovation is coming from the land of the rising sun, not Europe. While the Swiss and Germans are focused on perfecting the past, the Japanese are hard at work figuring out the next way to not only improve, but lower the cost of technically superior watches.

Taylor has had a privileged life no doubt aided by his inherent talent and skills. He gained his fortune improving of all things, thermostats. You can read more about him here. About seven years ago he began the development of this clock which he half paid for himself at a total cost of about one million English Pounds. Although this amount seems high, you have to take into consideration the budgets involved when Swiss watch makers create equally unique one-off pieces. Thus, the Corpus Clock was a bit of a bargain! Also, while Taylor is British, not Swiss, it is worth knowing that England has played an impressive role in the watch industry over the years. English watch makers are on the rise after years of relative dormancy. As such, Taylor who is himself an horologist, built the clock in honor of John Harrison, who was an English clock maker in the 18th century who solved the problem of longitude, and developed the "grasshopper" clock escapement (which was internal rather than external at the time). For the Corpus Clock, Taylor made the grasshopper escapement into an actually grasshopper, and placed it on the outside of the clock to visualize it eating away time.

Graham Oxford And Chrono Sprint Watches For Classic And Art Deco Looks Watch Releases The number indexes are thick dagger-like settings that really pop out at you. This is a truly three-dimensional watch. Which is good, as I bore easily of watches with too little depth to the face. The case is what I call an "opposite tonneau," but there is likely to be a more specific name out there. perhaps I am just drawing a blank. Instead of the middle of the watch protruding, the edges of the watch flare. In my opinion, this "girdle wearing" look is more attractive looking when it is actually sitting on a wrist versus a tonneau shaped watch.
