The watch dial is the major attraction and is constructed from something called Aventurine, which is a type of glass made with small copper particles inside. The copper particles inside of the man-made glass provide the incredible glitter look. Here is a bit about Aventurine directly from Blu. Note that the Aventurine used in the Galaxy watch is made in the Murano region of Italy:

I said it pretty well in those articles, but I'll affirm a few things now that the watches have been released. The watches are really nice. Maybe too nice for what the market will bear right now. The Richemont DNA in the watch line expresses it self profoundly in the diversity of the look and character of the watches. The video from TheTimeTV helps elaborate on what the new line is like. Funny how videos of a watch give it a different feeling that images alone. Being able to observe their size in relation to the human body seems to make a huge difference. You'll find these watches available soon at select Ralph Lauren stores and 'fine' watch retailers.

Creating the watch was really no easy task. There were a lot of hurdles and problems with the design, not to mention how to make the thing wearable. The use of curved surfaces helps significantly strengthen the structure of the watch making it extremely hardy - but was tough to make into something wearable. This very impressive watch is available for purchase soon. The watch comes complete in a collectors box with a titanium bracelet as well as a rubber strap (and changing tool). There are also a few dial colors available: black, white/silver, yellow, and blue. Each is pretty nice against the carbon fiber face (which is not too prominent). I like that the minute hand is particularly prominent that assists with legibility and that the face of the watch is overall very clear. Owning a watch like this gives you a lot of bragging rights and the assurance that you have not only a record setting timepiece, but the result of years of labor from a dedicated Swiss watch making team.

Really quick. Here is one of the coolest Sinn watches out there, and really rare at that. This is the 756 UTC Dialpal, which is the 757 UTCmodel without the rotating bezel. The Diapal name refers to a diamond palette system used instead of jewels between the gears. The system is so "slippery" that the movement needs no oil to lubricate these areas. The whole idea beyond just looking cool is to allow the watch to go much longer between servicing. This watch retails for over ,000 and is basically impossible to get in a lot of situations. The one pictured is available on eBay right now, as is at about 0 at the time of writing. Anything up to ,500 is going to be worth it for this amazing piece of watch technology.I discussed Sinn Diapal watches more here.

The new movement is the FC-700 automatic, and is the accumulation of over three years of development. What surprises me is the look and feel of the movement. The focus on aesthetics in the layout of the elements (such as the placement of the balance wheel) is complimented by a level of decoration not expected at these modest price points. The gold rotor, perlage and other polishing, and use of blue screws makes viewing the movement a pleasure. Nothing makes me feel better than taking off my watch and showing it to a friend (especially those that don't know about watches) - allowing them to discover an impressive mechanical movement visible through a caseback window.

The Casio Dynamic Wave Ceptor watch is model number WVQ-620DBE-1AVER, with a few other similar models in the line. The large steel 45mm watch houses an solar powered quartz movement that is also atomic clock radio controlled (not applicable in all the place Bear travels, as this model only accepts signals from the UK and Germany). The dial itself shows the time, 24 hour hand, and included in the watch is a full perpetual calendar, chronograph, dual time zones, a daily alarm, hourly chimes (which I am sure you can turn off to prevent annoying people). In addition to these features, there are a number of utility features on the watch such as a bright lume, backlight, auto daylight savings time, and 100 meters of water resistance. Again, at under 0, this isn't going to be the rugged watch to end all rugged watches. It has a mineral crystal (not sapphire), and the ion plated (IP) black coating on the bezel will come off with enough wear.

Inside is a modified automatic Valjoux 7750 movement. In addition to the Diapal system, the seconds dial has been removed and a GMT hand has been added. The Diapal version has a different colored dial than the standard 756 watch without the lube free movement. The watch comes on Sinn's high quality steel bracelets a both the 43mm wide case and bracelet are specially hardened tegimented steel. I really want ones of these watches myself someday.

Calm and low-key IWC Replica Watches

Last year Basel saw the Certina DS 1 release to a lot of happy watch lovers. It was a entry level priced handsome watch with the build quality and parts that the Swatch Group is able to provide (usually pretty good). Quality is a bit up from Hamilton, another Swatch Group brand. The standard DS 1 watch has an ETA 2824-2 movement, while this new chronograph version will have a Valjoux 7750. This might be one of the best priced watches to be available with the highly desirable work-horse automatic chronograph movement.

Omega Speedmaster 125 Worn By BMW's Head of Design Adrian van Hooydonk

This is my first Skagen watch. I felt as though this was necessary to say, because for me, this brand is ubiquitous, but I've never owned one. While this sentiment should come as a delight to Skagen’s marketing department, it means that as a watch lover, I consider Skagen to be one of the most well known brands out there. The first day I wore this super thin watch on my hand, I began to see lots of other Skagen watches on people’s wrists. There has got to be a good reason for that. In fact, even the people I talk with who I don't consider to be watch lovers, still know the Skagen name. "That Danish watch brand right?"

Alfex has been around for 60 years and you still haven't heard of them? I don't care that they are hard to find, especially in America. It is a cool brand, and this 60th anniversary piece is actually very unlike them, though it is handsome. Typically, the brand produces interesting minimalist designs. This is a more technologically inspired watch with a lot of classic elements, such as the case shape and crowns. The watch itself was designed by Marcus Eilinger, and Alfex is confident that it will become an icon. The Pazzola Giant Alarm is going to be offered in a limited edition of 600 pieces.

Speedmaster Date 'Panda'

One of your fellow readers recently purchased a watch that he was so passionate about, he spontaneously wrote a short review of it and I thought it was worth sharing with you. This is especially due to the good value of the watch, and that it is a relatively unknown US based watch company. The brand is Bernhardt watches that is based out of North Carolina. They have an impressive line of watches that use everything from quartz to mechanical movements of Swiss or Japanese origin. This specific model is near the top of their line. While it does have a conservative good look to it, it is anything but generic. While two different watches are pictured, the Globemaster model that my reader is referring to is the black diver's bezel version. This is a rare type of watch because it has a GMT hand complication, but a rotating diver's bezel instead of a 24 hour bezel (as seen on the other pictured model). It is important to note that movement inside is not your standard ETA GMT movement. Bernhardt took an ETA 2826 movement and modified it with a GMT complication. The standard ETA 2836 has a day and date complication, but that was removed to make for a GMT hand that jumps to each hour. Pretty clever.

"Let me reintroduce you to a very old story: Emerging country X starts making widgets of type Foo. Initially, their efforts are poor, and established manufacturers mock them. Over time, X works hard, improves its product, and starts making better and better widgets, all of the while doing so for less money. (Insert sideshow of political protests, tariffs, etc.) One day, everyone wakes up and notices that X's widgets are better and cheaper, and just like that the older manufacturers have to start playing catchup.

Consider the association with cowboys my poetic license as a commentator, but the connection is just so obvious to me, this is clearly what is going on here. Notice how well the watches match the snakeskin boots. We aren’t just talking about cowboys, but luxury loving cow handlers. I recall once being in the outskirts of Montreal, and hearing on the radio what was actually French language country music. Not that such Quebec tunes had to do with France proper, but it would make an excellent soundtrack for this article.

My Omega Seamaster Professional 300m Limited Edition Vancouver 2010 Olympics Watch Article On AskMen.com

Recently, the Gerald Genta designed classic Patek Philippe Nautilus watch underwent a modern re-sizing. Up to about 43mm wide, the new size of the classic looking diving reinvigorates the watch's character. I must admit that I was not taken by the Nautilus design when I first viewed it a few years back. It looked too simple, and a bit dated. It is of course a design from the 1970s. The long and thin rounded hands and hour markers felt basic, and the horizontal texturing on the dial was something I wasn't used to. Revisiting the style of the watch a few years after first viewing it, I love it.  There must be something about looking at 1000s of watch designs and then coming back to something honestly well put together that garners appreciation. I now give credit to Patek Philippe and Gerald Genta for what is a timeless and original look. You might compare the look of the Nautilus to Audemars Piguet's Royal Oak watch. This is no coincidence as they both share Gerald Genta as the designer.

I haven't seen him dive into water too many times (no one dives in the Great Salt Lake right?), but the IWC Aquatimer is a great choice for a multi-duty classy yet rugged watch. The IWC Aquatimer Chrono-Automatic is a modern IWC diving watch with an automatic Valjoux 7750 movement in side to power it. Water resistant to 120 meters (about 400 feet), the pushers do not need to be screwed down and can be operated underwater. What looks like a screwdown pusher for the lower chronograph pusher is actually a pusher as well as a crown to operate the internal rotating bezel. I like this model because of how subtle it is. Other Aquatimer watches have splashes of color, but that look isn't what everyone is looking for. While it is hard to tell in the images, the watch has a high amount of rich polish and finish on the case and dial.

These aren't quite on par with European tourbillon movements in terms of performance, construction, or accuracy, but they are much cheaper. The SG3824 (without the moon phase) is ,600.00 and the SG3826 moon phase is ,999.00. These aren't cheap prices by any means, but you can't get a European tourbillon based movement watch for under ,000 (average price of ,000 - 0,000). Like I said earlier, 70% of the quality for 30% of the price (or some other ratio that communicates the same idea). Having said that, the designs aren't half bad. There is unmistakable Asian art and architectural influence in the designs of the two watches, especially in the face and case construction. Looking closely at the watches you can't tell that things are not quite as finely milled or cut as in European watches, but it is pretty good. It will take a while - if it happens at all - for Chinese and other Asian high-end watches to catch up with European watch making standards that have been set for decades, though this is a good step in that direction.

The newest AskMen.com watch review by me is up. This time it is on an unusual suspect, a TW Steel watch - a maker whose claim to fame is being in the business of 'big watches' (literally). The TW 1 model is part of the "Canteen" collection. It was not until I was almost done with the review that I realized the reason for the name. It has to do with the protective diver's crown. Read and you'll see if you still don't get it. Being so used to what the crown is actually for, it took me a while to realize it. Goes to show that the people in marketing at TW Steel are either not big watch aficionados, of can think outside the box really well.
