5 Important Speedmasters for Chronos

One Of Our Readers Talks About His Gold Speedmaster 3695.50.31

The case itself is 18k rose rose, with at least one version featuring black gold accents (like the bezel). My favorite case is the one with the large skeletonized lugs, reminiscent of 1970's watch designs with that modern twist. The lugs on the 44mm case have that integrated look and just match up well with all the polishing all over the case and dial. This watch is like two steps away from being a blingy watch, almost, but not quite. I can see how the wrong crowd will mistake the automatic movement rotor on the face of the watch for Frederic Jouvenot's take on "wheel spinners" for  watch. As for the name of the watch, it is pretty silly, "Automatic Chronograph Evolution." Come on... really? Lets get with the time and give it a name that isn't merely descriptive. "Yea, I know it is an automatic chronograph, but what is it called?!" Hopefully at launch there will be a new name as well.

It is really all the little details that makes this watch stand out. For example, did you notice there is no crown? Yup, none. The watch caseback is used to adjust and manually wind the watch (though the movement is automatic). So you see those little balled nubs in gold around the back of the case, those are to help twist it. The time can even be set under water. Cool right! There are almost no dive watches that can boast that. Inside the watch is the Pita-003 movement which I read is based on a modified ETA 2678. The movement will be modified with two patented systems which is necessary due to everything that is going on inside of the 18mm thick case of the Oceana watch. Did I also mention that is water resistant to 5000 meters? Yea, really nuts.

Sharing A Reader's Speedmaster Story

I am getting the growing feeling that Maitres du Temps watches are timepieces for people who "want to feel their worth." It is a showy timepiece, but showy with substance. That is one of the best qualities of luxury watches (or simply those whose designs you love) - each time you look at your wrist you see what time it is and are reminded of the message subtext of the watch. . You can wear these as a watch to impress, and be satisfied if the only person in the world who notices if yourself because it is also lovely to look at. Though, that isn't exactly the case with the "large and in charge" Chapter One and Chapter Two watches - those say a lot about the wearer, and tend to speak for themselves as well. Basically what all people want (even if they don't admit it) in a watch.

As a woman in my mid-twenties, who's been in a serious relationship for the better part of a decade, this is something that really interests me. Watches are my thing, so this would really impress me.

Calm and low-key IWC Replica Watches

The Kupe's Voyage watch is part of a limited edition of just 10 watches - this is ultra exclusive, and you can be the proud owner just by entering. The watch is based on the base Magrette Regattare watch, but with the beautiful engraved bezel. What I love about Magrette watches is their use of Auckland area craftspeople to give the watch a special character not found in other brands. A great example is the hand engraved bezel. Follow the symbols to tell the mythic story of how Kupe discovered what would eventually be known as New Zealand - distinctly New Zealand experience that you won't find on any other watch. The special giveaway webpage is further designed very well, another testament to this boutique watch brand's attention to detail.

But, if you want to separate yourself a bit more, you could also go classic. Like Cartier classic. The Cartier Love Watch in White Gold is an obvious and simple way to say I love you. Forever. The silvered sunray dial is subtle yet engaging on a wrist - the beauty, better to be seen up close.

Hard to know if this watch actually made it (or will make it) to production. You can see the "emergency button" being the yellow-ish football shaped area on the lower part of the watch face. Now you'll never again need to carry your Life Alert pendant with you anymore - cause white plastic went out of a style... like forever ago. Thing of this watch as a modern Breitling Emergency. This beauty does a few things well. In addition to telling the time, you have a fine faux gold in the middle of the bracelet links. Like the two tone luxury watch you so want it to be. Don't let there be any mistakes about it, this IS Life Alert, and this is quality. When showing off your new timepiece to buddies, you'll want to be damn proud that your watch is AARP newsletter back-page ad fresh. "How much did it cost you?" "I managed to score this baby free with my subscription!" Crafty my friend...crafty. Try that at Tourneau.

The movement is one of the best in the industry. It is the Blancpain Calibre 1315. There is also the GMT model with the 5215 movement. The automatic mechanical movement is specially made for sports watches. This basically means that it has lots of shock resistance. It further has a whopping 5 days (120 hours) of power reserve through three mainspring barrels! That is a lot. well over 2-3 times what you see in most similar movements. Rare for a 1000 meter water resistant watch is the sapphire movement window on the caseback. The rotor you will see is styled after a boat propeller, which is appropriate. The movement also features a fast date adjust at midnight. This basically means that the date window immediately moves to the next date at midnight, rather than slowly move over an hour or so. You can also manually adjust the date both ahead and behind. A nice touch for a luxury watch.

Casio Wave Ceptor WVA430J-1A Watch Review: Solar, Atomic, Simple Wrist Time Reviews Casio is really an impressive company. Watches are just one of the many things they do, and the incredible level of refinement in the operation and function of this watch is due to the fact that they pride themselves of supplying the planet with time telling instruments, meaning they have ample opportunity to fix every little problem they learn about. Here is another good thing; at , this watch does something that high-end 00 plus quartz watches often cannot do. Now this might seem basic, but is important: the seconds hand lines up perfect with the markers as it ticks its away around the watch face. People who pay attention to their watch get really irritated when their watch has a seconds hand that does not light up properly. No worries here. A little touch that Casio does not neglect, and is telling of their overall attention to detail and pride in their product. The Wave Ceptor WVA430J-1A is not going to be the last watch you ever own, but it won't let you down, and does its job without complaints - and not apologizing for not being a beauty pageant contestant. For these reason, this Casio gets aBlogtoRead.com's Good Value Award for being and having all of the above and being under 0.

Longio Tourbillon Watches: Chinese Watchmaking Pride Watch Releases

Remember how I said that watch winders can die? Well, the motors are very sensitive and because they need to operate for long periods of time without rest and more or less silently, they need to put up with a lot. That combined with the mass manufacturing is not a recipe for success. However, if it was a simple and cheap feat to replace the motor in the watch winder, it would allow you to enjoy the inexpensive cost of watch winders such as this and be able to maintain them yourself. So what I did was take this Time Tutelary winder apart to see what it was like inside mechanically, and see how easy it would be to repair is necessary.

Other notable features about the watch are that the case is nickle-free (for people who are allergic to the metal), and that the sapphire crystal uses one of the best AR coatings in the industry. Let it be known that this is a serious tool watch, not merely something trouncing around as one. It will serve you well and focus primarily of getting the job done right. If you like how it looks, admire it gracefully, but Sinn watches don't like to be pampered. Price will be around ,500 - ,000 when it comes out in May.

Gear like this is more than just a fancy watch, but exists to be an essential training tool. After each session, that watch can be optionally hooked up to your computer and all the data can be plotted in an accompanying program to help you understand your progress, training productivity, and overall results. This takes the guess work out of a lot of what people in training have to deal with. I've known Suunto watches to be quite serious about their ability to collect data, and are serious tools for professionals as opposed to gadget novelties. Price adds up for all the optional pods and accessories, but these instruments are a good investment. Just over 0 for the t6c  Red Arrow watch and more for the other components. The Black arrow ought to be much less.

I am fortunate to present you with this special watch review from aBlogtoRead.com guest Mr. Paul Hubbard, a distinguished fellow watch lover and reviewer online. You'll find more of his work at WatchReport.com, and you'll find that these days Mr. Hubbard practically runs the site. This quality review is of a quite controversial watch. Why? Because it is not only a Chinese watch with a Chinese movement (actually the base movement might be Japanese), but it is labeled as such. For a number of reasons some people refuse to accept Chinese watches as being legit brands, part of this has to do with the fact that China is the major source of replica watches. However, you'll find that China makes a lot of the parts that go into high-end European watches, but they don't exactly advertise that fact. Sea-Gull is of the few Chinese watch brands that do a decent job marketing themselves, and offer an arguably good value. Chinese watches are not nearly at the point of quite being competitor watches to Japanese or European watches, but instead offer a different appeal. Here you can get a true-to-life classic looking watch that you don't have to worry about beating up. Take the 40mm wide stainless steel M177 watch for what it is - an interesting interpretation of classic watches from a wholly Chinese watch manufacturer. The price is quite low, easily a mere fraction of comparably styled European watches - but you do get what you pay for. If you explore Sea-Gull's site a bit, you can see that they have gold watches and those with traditionally upscale complications such minute repeaters and tourbillons. These go for many thousands - all from a Chinese maker. I have no idea how those do, but this under 0 timepiece is probably a safer investment. Please see Mr. Hubbard's interesting straight forward review below of his Sea-Gull M177 mechanical automatic watch.

aBlogtoRead.com content partner TheTimeTV gets the good stuff though, and is able to infiltrate the lines in order to get great video. While this video covers more than just the Monaco watches, it is focused on them primarily. The major model of interest was the Tag Heuer Monaco 24 watch. Penned as a concept and prototype, the watch will be built as a limited edition. The tech innovation in the watch is the incredible shock resistance. Tag Heuer says that you can drop the watch from 20 feet and it will survive. For a mechanical watch that is pretty good. It does this by "floating" the movement in the case as it is attached by four shock absorbers. Everything is made of exotic materials originally developed for car racing and aerospace use. The case is like a protective cockpit using steel tubing for protection. Further buffers and other shock "filters" inhabit the highly custom made 40.5mm wide tungsten case coated in black PVD (water resistant to 100 meters).

IWC Replica Watches In Three New Designs For 2016

What does the haute horology world need now? High-end Ralph Lauren watches of course. No less with movements from sibling watch companies IWC and Jaeger LeCoultre, all under parent Richemont Group. The Sporting Collection is my favorite line of new Ralph Lauren watches. I'd certainly "sport" one (cheesy pun), but it is unlikely I'd pay the price. I have a feeling that these watches, while very high in quality, will go the way of Panerai made (also part of the Richemont Group) Ferrari watches. Those started going at half of retail eventually. Just not the right type of marketing. For reference, here is a video of Ralph Lauren watches at SIHH back in January when they first launched.
