Androgynous Watches

Yes is an American watch company based near San Diego California. The idea behind the watch was to present celestial calendar information on your wrist in a useful and meaningful manner. The watch combines a single 24 hour analog hand, and an LCD screen which is most of the dial. The single 24 hour hand also functions like a gauge. Basically parts of the LCD screen are shaded in (this changes based on the time of the year and the location you are in), those are the (no sunlight areas), which the non shaded areas are those which represent daylight hours. Thus, you can see how much light and dark there will be in any given 24 hour period, and the 24 hour hand functions like a gauge showing you how much light or dark you have left. On the main dial is also a moonphase indicator.

Hideous Melding Of Mobile Phone, Mechanical Watches, And Painful Design: The Mobiado Professional 105GMT Gold Discovery Phone Watch Style The gold you see on the case is gold plated (base is brass). The case is also offered in a gun metal version (screws are gun metal too), which is just specially treated steel. The dark parts of the case are Ebony wood with thin layers of synthetic sapphire crystal over them. This is the same type of sapphire crystal used on watch faces. It is very strong and doesn't scratch, and probably forces the phone to weight a lot. There are also diamonds around the watch faces. They aren't particularly well placed, but they are real diamonds. Though I do get a distinct low-end blingy feel from this phone.

aBlogtoRead.com Intermission For A Few Days While Out Of Town Announcements We all need to leave every once in a while. For you that means a few days without new posts from me. Don't fret however, I shall return on Wednesday August 13th. In the meantime, please enjoy this wonderful satire of Bill Watterson's timeless classic comic strip, Calvin & Hobbes. Instead of Calvin the protagonist and his man-eating tiger (stuffed animal) Hobbes, we have a different coupling with equally enjoyable discourse in rich tribute to Mr. Watterson's craft and creativity. That being Calvin and Jobs, Steve Jobs that is. You are bound to enjoy it. Especially because it describes Apple's lord and master with impeccable accuracy. Thank you Gizmodo.

The movement again is the RJ ONE made by BNB Concepts for Romain Jerome. The watch will be limited to only 9 pieces, and share the same traits as the original with some design tweaks. Notable is the more "aged" appearance and refined looks. The first Day & Night watch was a surprise hit, and it was actually one of Romain Jerome's retailers that requested another Day & Night watch. Because the original was a limited edition, they would have to make a new model, and Romain Jerome did. The 46mm wide case is mainly constructed out of steel and titanium, with carbon fiber in the mix. The strap is a very high quality crocodile, which matches the demeanor of the watch that tried to be avant garde and retro at the same time.

Tissot Sea-Touch Watch For 2009 Watch Releases

Spending an inordinate amount of time looking through watch catalogs and marketing materials, I've noticed a lot of noteworthy trends. It seems as though someone, somewhere, has come up with a few rules regarding how to advertise really expensive items to the people that can afford them. Honestly, it is quite humorous much of the time, and from my perspective a lot of the time they are going about it wrong. At the very least, there is certainly room for innovation and improvement, especially if I where doing the buying. Lets take a look at some of the "time-tested" methods you tend to see.

1. Walk On Tip Toes

This is the type of watch that you either love or hate. The looks are totally going to be subjective. I personally am fond of the style, though I couldn't wear it everyday. It is an amazingly robust design that frankly does not allow you think of how unpractical it is. Rather, you'll gush over the proud design and article of pride on your wrist.

Pierre Kunz Belle Epoque Art Deco Watch Watch Releases

The watch has a cool feature you don't often see on watches, though it makes total sense. Rotating the bezel serves to alter the function mode of the watch. Buttons on the sides of the watch help with making adjustments. The watch itself comes in different colors; black, white, and a few others. I have to say that for being a relatively pedestrian watch (maybe a slight pun intended), it looks rather attractive. You'll have to settle for Japanese language instructions, but I think you are smart enough to make due. Certainly a more fun and interesting product that what you can get from Polar or Timex. It is also a nice a big watch at 46mm, which is not bad considering all the stuff it has packed inside. Find them online for about 5.

Four Black Or White Watches To Match The New Black Or White iPhone 3G Watch Style Four Black Or White Watches To Match The New Black Or White iPhone 3G Watch Style Although it has been more than a few weeks since the iPhone 3G's release, there is still a lengthy line outside the Apple store here in San Francisco. A sign people care dearly about the looks of their phone, as there is really nothing that the iPhone 3G does that other phone's do not. So for the fashion elite out there, here are four watches like the iPhone 3G that are fashionable and come in black or white.

Seiko Prospex MarineMaster Pro SBDX001 Watch Available: Cult Favorite Diver Watch Releases The Seiko MarineMaster SBDX001 is a high-end Japanese dive watch. Inside is a quality Seiko automatic movement, and everything about the watch is geared toward durability and function. I won't go into too much detail because I already gave the Seiko MarineMaster Professional watch a full discussion here, complete with a relevant video. Overall, I really like this watch and it typifies what is good about mechanical Japanese instrument watches.

A new luxury brand on the block is Manufacture Contemporaine du Temps (MCT). Luxury brands seem to be popping with regularity these days, so it's important to notice the unique elements of each. MCT was founded by Denis Giguet, a French engineer who has worked with watch greats such as Rolex and Harry Winston (among others). MCT debuts with its first watch, the Sequential One in a limited edition of 99 pieces. You can view the interview with him in the video below.

The Temption Cameo and Fortis Square are both (approximately) 39mm wide and high - steel - square-cased watches with round dials. Each primarily arrives with dark brown leather straps, and have dark against white colored faces. Each has a shaped rear on the watch case to better fit to your wrist. Each contains a Swiss ETA automatic mechanical movement with a sapphire crystal caseback window (an ETA 2892-2 in the Cameo, and an ETA 2836-2 in the Square, though a chronograph or GMT version of the Square is also available with other movements). Both have a retail price between ,500- ,000. Both are functionality focused with a stylistic edge. In my book that makes these two watches competitors.

Know that watch makers for the most part don't want you to know this. They would prefer retain an illusion that they, themselves hand make each watch from the ore to the finished timepiece. Instead they are mostly assemblers, but that is OK. These are businesses like any other, and the realities and privileges of industrialization should be taken advantage of at all times. A purely hand-made watch would cost a fortune, which is often the case even with those that are only somewhat hand-made.

The classic-looking timekeeper comes in gray gold,  red gold,  platinum. All pretty price metals. If you ask me, the gray gold looks pretty nice (similar to white gold, only more gray...duh). There are two choices for the dial which are a geometrical silver-plated or black galvanic dial with fine-brushed sun decoration. The alligator strap is pretty dashing in a honey brown color, but is also available in a darker chocolate brown or black tone. Inside the watch is an automatic calibre PK 2001-1520 movement. Probably a based ETA movement with a retrograde modification for the seconds dial, and 42 hours of power reserve. The case itself is 41mm wide, but that is rather large for a square case, which is good! Of course it has a sapphire crystal It is only water resistant to 30 meters, but this really isn't much of a sports watch. I like the simple head nod to both art deco and Belle Epoque styles here, without over doing it. It is a fine example of artistic watch perfection from Pierre Kunz who is known well for such model types.

Bell & Ross Instrument Gets Fancy New Skin With The BR01-94 Pro Titanium Watch Releases When it comes down to it, Bell & Ross is a very conservative designer. Which is not typical at all for the French. In essence, the BR01 Pro Titanium is a conservative and simple watch, but you'd not know it from a mere glance. This is an asset to the watch market, because it will help this watch have a lasting aesthetic, and that is most important when considering the engineering of an icon. Think of it as Bell & Ross always thinking ahead, even though the brand is young. The BR01-94 Pro Titanium chronograph will be cost about 8,000 Euros (retail, not street price) when it is released soon. I don't even want to think what that means in dollars right now. Judging actual prices and the minor discounts involved, I think you'll find with watch for about ,000 - ,500 soon.

The PVD coated 40mm wide watch contains an automatic ETA 2824-2 movement for years of worry free duty. Fortis interestingly placed it on a bund strap, which makes it look over. All the black is meant to enhance the visibility of the white numbering which is actually luminant. Obviously you can take the bund backing off the strap to give it a more traditional look. Everything about this watch is strictly a Fortis in terms of quality and look, except for the face. Price is further along the lower end of Fortis' range at about ,050.

Welcome To A Pinnacle Of Taste And Technology. May I Please Present You With: The Dogs Playing Poker Gold Watch Watch Releases And then there is the replicated painting of those dogs. Those oh so well anthropomorphized dogs that only a man's man can appreciate. Think of even sitting in the room depicted in the painting; red painted walls? Green drapes? What, is this Santa Claus' rec room? I love the green tinted alligator strap on the watch, that would really not fit well with any other watch. This is not the watch to wear in the presence of women, as they will think you mad for spending so much on something that so utterly repulses them. No, only a true connoisseur of man paraphernalia will appreciate this. The kind of guy who wears it while admiring himself wearing a smoking jacket in front of his gold-plated Budweiser promotional mirror mounted on the wall.

Seiko Pullsse Odograph Watch Is Little Japanese Overlord Of Walking, On Your Wrist! Watch Releases Seiko Pullsse Odograph Watch Is Little Japanese Overlord Of Walking, On Your Wrist! Watch Releases Why on Earth is this watch not officially sold in the US? I mean you can still get it online, but people need a watch like this to get them through the day, at least any walking parts. Frankly, I will all but forget how to stroll or pace without this watch. The Seiko Pullsee is technically a fitness watch, but really serves to do something that the Japanese love, give you extraneous information. An upgrade from the mere "Pedessa" model, the Pullsee relies of two basic sensors to tell you everything you need to know. It has a built in pedometer and rate-heart monitor. As an odograph, this watch literally measures walking.  The pedometer is an internal sensor, while I believe the heart rate monitor is attached to the strap which would touch your wrist. In addition, it has a calendar, stop watch functions, calendar, and other functions you'd expect in a fitness watch.
