Speedy Tuesday – Speedmaster Professional Mark II

Opera is not a dying artform; it's a return to a civilized way of living. For me, watches share the same sense of refinement and elegance. They recreate, beautifully, the gift of time.

I got my Temption Cameo watch through WatchExpo.com, which is in my opinion the best US Temption watch dealer. If there is a watch they don’t have in stock they can order it for you at a better price than any other US Temption watch dealer.

This Arctos Elite GPW K1 Limited Edition watch was release a little while ago (in 2008). As the run was for only 50 watches there are rare. However, Rufus Lin Designs has a very limited number (three pieces or less) available. The price for each is reasonable at ,200 Because this model is is nicer AND less expensive than the standard Artcos GPW watch it is a choice pick for me.

The winder is very easy to open up with the removal of three screws located in the base. The bottom of the winder comes off like a cover, giving you very easy access to the mechanics. This isn't the first time that I have opened up a winder, and was impressed with how easy it was. You can see that the different parts are all clipped together - basically making them inter changeable, so if one died, you could easily save the whole device by just replacing the bad part. Notice these clips at the white blocks in the images.

At least not from me.

The chronograph is easy to use and measures in one second increments. The pushers are comfortable to use and so is the crown. I further like that the crown has a relief of the Jorg Gray "JG" logo on it. The watch case is in steel and about 41mm wide. You can see that the side of the case are done in a satin finish while the back and bezel of the case are in a nice high polish. Wearing the watch is comfortable, as the case fits well on your wrist. The black leather strap is a good part of the watch. It has that distressed look with the contrast stitching the is popular among aviator style watches. The strap also has a good amount of padding and has a supple underside. The steel buckle has laser etched Jorg Gray logo, which is an important detail.

I was particularly keen on the decoration component of the watch making phase. I looked over the shoulders of many a worker to consider their work, and the skill seemingly involved. Each worker goes through training. for some people it can take years and require special educational degrees. This is particularly true with anyone assembling movements. Work rooms are divided by specific tasks. I entered a room called "Perlage" for example,  and perlage polishing is all that they did. Notice the image with the polished movement plates. They are applied with a perlage polish. While the process could be done completely automatically with a robot, Lange does not do it that way. "This way each piece that is decorated comes out just a little bit different. It is unique - and that is the way we prefer it." I liked the response. The workers have total ownership of their work stations - and they spend as much time working on small parts as they do maintaining the machines they work on to keep them working perfectly. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and it is common to see watch makers decorate their own work stations with trinkets, images, and other person belongings. These really are homes away from home. Turn-over for these positions is very low, and a position working at A. Lange & Sohne as a watch maker is a secure and highly regarded position. Most workers will do the same task each day. Some of them are content doing this, others slowly move their way up to room leaders or other facets of the watch movement making process.

In order to manufacture this Art Deco timepiece, Eterna was able to capitalize on their own history of movement excellence while continuing its tradition of elegance. Inspired by art, and driven by perfection, Eterna has captured a very wearable watch for women, and one that they will be proud to wear.

JamesList never fails to impress with me with interesting and appealing watches. My latest find is this Jackie Chan Limited Edition IWC Portuguese Chrono Automatic watch - really nice. Here is the background: so Mr. Chan has a charity called "the Jackie Chan Charitable Foundation" (clever name I know). And this watch was part of an effort to raise money, through sales most likely. I honestly don't know the exact connection with the foundation and the watch, but THERE IS a connection. How do I know? A little detective work here; it says "For the Jackie Chan Charitable Foundation" on the caseback of the watch. I know, I am clever. Also on the back of the watch is a hybrid symbol for the Chinese character for Dragon, with the name "Jackie" in it, in English.

Romain Jerome Moon-Dust DNA The Truth About Roswell Watch, Is A Mystery To Me

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.

Why all the hoopla about just some new watch? Because it is so different. The combination of price + market distinction make it an important watch industry piece in my humble opinion. While many unique watches exist out there, so few have the type of broad appeal that I think Temption was able to bestow upon the Cameo.
