A. Lange & Söhne Limited Edition Tourbograph "Pour le Merite" With Tourbillon And Fusee Chain Available On JamesList Sales & Auctions

The display is red or green LED, actually lots of LEDs that make up the dial. Other than telling the time, functions also include a calendar. Price is pretty reasonable for the geektastic look at about 0.00.

New "Pink Panther" Concept Watch From Virtual Ideas Is New View On Women's Luxury Watch Style There is a lot of Bell & Ross influence in this watch, but it would be unfair to completely attribute Bell & Ross for the theme. No, the Pink Panther actually represents a modern approach of thinking about watch design; focusing on unorthodox case design and ways of displaying the time. I wouldn't call it minimalistic, but there is certainly more emphasis on the watch case than on the portion of the watch that tells the time. Here in the Pink Panther, you have a perfect example of this philosophy in action. Despite regarding the Pink Panther as such, this is not an example of form over function, because function has certainly been addressed. A good designer like Virtual Ideas will never sacrifice the essential operation of a watch to satisfy looks. This is a primary way you can separate watch designers from mere industrial designers who sometimes conceive watches.

The hands of the watch are a bit standard looking, and maybe too short in my opinion. It is possible that if they are too long (given the large size of the dial), it would affect what the quartz movement can handle because the hands would be to heavy. Otherwise I can't understand why watch makers would stunt watch hands.

Tiffany & Co. Mark T-57 Automatic Watch Review: Sport And Formality Mix With Satisfying Results Wrist Time Reviews Tiffany & Co. Mark T-57 Automatic Watch Review: Sport And Formality Mix With Satisfying Results Wrist Time Reviews So lets get back to the Mark T-57. It is a sportier extension of the standard "Mark" line of watches, which all are very classic in form, providing a mixture of quartz and automatic models. The Mark T-57 watches are the same in this regard. There are three-hand and chronograph models available, with automatic and quartz movements. There is an all steel version, and one that is interestingly covered with a thin layer of vulcanized rubber (sportier still). Lastly, there is a metal bracelet and rubber strap available. More recently, Tiffany & Co. released a much more expensive model in gold (and steel) that features a unique partially skeletonized tri-retrograde chronograph display. Read more about the Tiffany & Co. Mark T-57 line here.

The Spirit of the Dragon collection (because Dragons have scales too), is really based on the idea of incorporating the look of scaled surfaces into a watch. To that end the result is pretty well done. These are bona fide luxury watches available in steel, various shades of 18k gold, and even platinum. A three-hand and chronograph version is available, with black, blue, or white colored dials. Veni Vidi Vici further promises to customize your watch however you like. Need some diamonds sprinkled on the face? No problem. Want a custom color? No problem. Need yours with a mother of pearl face? (Will have to check with the manager, but...) No problem! You can even have a mixture of polished and satin finished scales and surfaces on the watch for an interesting look. Pretty cool.

Well, the IWC Ref. IW371803 is a newish version of the IWC Top Gun. Its actually not fair to call it an exact copy. It does not share the titanium and ceramic case, but rather has a steel case. The most notable change is the dial colors, which are more exciting this time and probably relate to the German Football (yea, Soccer) team's color. Such colors, which also resemble the German flag colors (red, black, and gold). Thank you Switzerland for sharing in the proud German nationalism that German watch brands often display.

Honestly, it seems as though every watch company is over 150 years old, and the new ones are steeped in the heritage of a company that either led an innovation revolution, saved an economy, or made underwear for a king. Basically, the idea seems to be that purchasing a watch, should always be coupled with topics that have nothing to do with the watches they are selling. One of my favorite approaches is, "this company used to make highly functional utilitarian goods. Now it makes expensive luxury watches with the heritage of those utilitarian goods, but at 26 times the cost." Makes a ton of sense. From tool to jewelry is the way it goes.

Vacheron Constantin Metiers d’Art Tribute To Explorers 2008 Watches: Not Particularly Good Tributes To Great Explorers Watch Releases So you have a nicely made watch with an interesting movement, what exactly is my problem you ask? Well it has to do with the art itself that looks, childish to the say the least. I love the look of old world maps, but these just look really basic, and not a very good match with the special enamel style that is used. There is very limited detail, and I've seen many, much better antique map drawings. The writing is not especially elegant, and this is even reflected in the Vacheron Constantin logo that is done in the same style. It is not very crisp or interesting for that matter. I do like how the land masses are outlined with gold, this is nice, but I am not super keen on the browns used, but that could be argued as part of the style. The little illustrations are basic at best, and don't represent a large degree of style of skill. To be honest, these small painting remind me of the skill you'd see employed when buying trinkets at some bazaar; its not bad, but its not up to par with what these watches will inevitably costs (more than trinket prices).

The Casio AQ160W-1BV comes with either a resin strap or a metal bracelet (according to Casio, the metal bracelet is only more than the resin strap. Size is 42mm wide, and the crystal is mineral. The batter probably lasts between 1-5 years. The watch is also rated to 100m water resistance.

This is one of the Piaget Limelight Love Letter Secret watches (pictured is Ref.  G0A34100). There are slight modifications to this design each year, but you get the idea. Pretty clever little number. The watch case is made out of 18k white gold and set with 130 brilliant cut diamonds to give it that sparkly look that no woman can resist. The top of the envelope has a ruby as the cabochon. If you can't see the watch crown, it is because it is on the back of the watch. It isn't the easiest to read, but who cares, This is basically "I love you" jewelry. Inside is a Piaget 56P quartz movement. The satin strap as more diamonds on the 18k gold strap.

This was the Monte-Carlo rally at its peak. An infinitely complex sporting competition held since 1911 between the French Alps and the French Riviera, attracting the greatest drivers from around the world.

With the competition out there for the luxury buyer, watches don't always just sell themselves, even if they are really beautiful. Sometimes a bad sell can cast an pale yellow light on an otherwise excellent timepiece. Let me tell you what is wrong with this approach:

I mentioned that the Tocs watches are perfect for kids. Yeah, because they aren't going to stand up to a beating, don't even remotely look professional, and have that kid Crayola kinda look. I can say that the Tocs watches come in a lot of colors, which is fine, considering the fact that plastic color choices have no limits really. There is nothing refined, or particularly endearing about these watches. It is possible that I am jaded being exposed to the highest end watches that exist, but I can appreciate a Casio, and these Tocs watches just leave me blank faced.

Robert mentions that the Bulova Accutron Spaceview is not a pretty watch, and I agree with him, but I don't think it is trying to be a pretty watch, not does it need to be. It is actually trying to be a futuristic watch while being artistic at the same time. To this end the watch really excels. Different hands and cases give the Spaceview a different personality. The movement from the front look likes a robot from Battlestar Galactica, with its little copper coil eyes and thin face. It is undoubtedly a cool looking little timepiece, and certainly a welcome vestige of watchdom.

These watches are extremely hard to find, which is a shame. Temption doesn't even make 1000 watches a year, so they put their all in each on that is made. Like I said, the Cherubin is a bit like Temption's flagship model, and retails at over ,000. The one on eBay is over ,000 right now. You are likely going to pay between ,000 - ,000 for a new or good condition Cherubin watch.

Panerai PAM 63 GMT Luminor Watch Worn By Tom Cruise In Tropic Thunder Movie

Panerai PAM 63 GMT Luminor Watch Worn By Tom Cruise In Tropic Thunder Movie

There is something very "Eastern" in the design of the GCLL997. Some of it looks Middle Eastern to me, while other parts are pretty distinctly Japanese. The Credor logo almost looks Arabic, which is kinda cool. While it is hard to tell from the photographs, the dial is extremely well finished with a lot of texturing applied faceted markers, and materials that give off the richest of feelings. The case itself is a thankfully large for Asian watches at 43mm wide. None of this 35mm nonsense. And inside is of course a Seiko Spring drive movement. Functions include the time, moonphase, and a power reserve indicator.

Baume & Mercier Add New Models To Its William Baume Editions: The Retrograde, Ultraflat, And Tourbillon Watches Watch Releases Lets look at the watches individually. First is the William Baume Retrograde. The Retrograde refers to the seconds counter with only counts in 30 second increments. After reaching the end, the hand jumps to the beginning to start the process over. The watch also features a large-ish date window at the top. You'll notice that the retrograde window is purposefully applied in manner as to disrupt the natural circle of the dial a bit. This adds a rich depth and visual appeal that might be lacking otherwise, and is welcome on a guilloche machined dial. The hands of the watch are quite nice actually. They are (thankfully) not too short and taper in and out in the middle. The hand on the retrograde dial is curved like a snake. Why? Well it does look cool of course, but in concert with the constant moving of the seconds hands across the bottom an added element of motion is presented with the non linear appearing hand. Inside is the Baume et Mercier automatic caliber LP3533 movement.

The Temption Cameo case is obviously more "engineered," featuring a case with design elements like column texturing on the sides of the case as well as finer cute edges. I'd have to say that the Temption wins in any 'haute horologie' contests. Further, the Cameo  dial is stunning. The main round dial is raised and complimented by supplemental indexes around the rest of the dial that fan out. The hands have more visual appeal than the strictly utilitarian ones used on the Fortis. However, the Fortis hands are functional, and enjoy more lume covering (Temption themselves uses almost identical hands on other watches). The Fortis is a bit easier to read given the diagonally oriented chapter ring and large Arabic numerals. Both watches are still very legible, and it is up to the user to really decide what they like better. I saw each is fit for a different purpose, so no clear winnder in these departments.

The Black Flag and Black Hull models are very similar with only differences in the dial. The Black Hull is all black, while the Black Flag as blue lume on the hands and numerals. Both watches tastefully undertone the flags in black, which are slowly becoming a vestigial element of the Admiral's Cup line that seems to slowly lose significance. Here the flags are neatly placed along the chapter ring (or um, twelve-agon) around the dial in dark tones. You'll notice that the hands (main and especially subdial) as taken from the look of classic compasses.

Welder K26 Watches Give Color Options With Four Interchangeable Crystal Lenses Watch Releases Soon Welder watches (or already in some places) will have mass distribution in many American department stores and retail watch locations. Good for them as such mass distribution is difficult to come by these days. I look forward to checking them out soon. The designs are very interesting, without being too over the top. I will be even more impressed when they have more mechanical models and are still able to keep prices reasonably. I predict they will enjoy sufficient sales as the product line is robust and edgy. Check them out if you like what you see.

The large outlines font for some of the numbers as well as the faceted hour markers are a nice touch, and give it a sports sophisticated look. I am not in love with the "triple date window," but it does help with keeping the watch face symmetrical. The case is a good 43mm in size, the crystal is sapphire, and the water resistance is 100m meters. Interestingly enough, the ETA automatic movement (probably an ETA 2824-2) is decorated with perlage and cotes de Geneva polishing. A nice touch for this price point which is about 00-00.
