Will it be commercially produced? If anything about Citizen’s recent history is a clue then likely yes. It would not be too surprising if Citizen released the Eco-Drive Nova as a limited edition concept watch available only in a few markets. Even if you can’t buy one, it is worth checking out just what the Eco-Drive Nova watch looks like in action – and how far Citizen can take their Eco-Drive technology.
Unlike most diver's bezels, the one on the Omega Ploprof rotates in both directions. This makes it easier to set. Only the bezel can't be moved unless the vertically aligned pusher on the top right-hand part of the case is depressed. The original models had this piece in plastic, but Omega put a metal one with an orange aluminum ring around the pusher on the 1200M models. At first, having to press down the pusher and rotate the bezel ring with one hand is rather awkward. I worried about what this would be like with diving gloves on. While I never did test it with gloves, the process became simple rather fast, and now I don't mind or think about it at all. I also like to pretend that the pusher is a little antenna. For what? I don't know... let me have my nerdy fantasy.
The metal in the case mostly takes the form of bridges, which are titanium. They are DLC coated which make them stronger and darker, and of course help to reduce friction even more. For the escapement parts Cartier used innovations from the ID One. There, an adjustment free escapement was developed. This means that once you put it in the case you don't need to adjust it for accuracy. This uses Cartier's DRIE machining technology, and a material they like to call "carbon crystal."
Placed sort of in the middle (price-wise) among their collection, the Orbita Avanti 4 Vertical watch winder is a fine unit that will provide reliable winding service for four automatic watches in a relatively compact space and attractive package. For whatever reason, I find myself using it much more than other units that have doors and other obstructions to the watches. For me, it really comes down to convenience. I want a simple unit that I can place in and remove my watch with ease - I think Orbita does that pretty well in units such as this. Price for the Orbita Avanti 4 Vertical watch winder is ,995.
