Omega Speedmaster Professional 3595.52 "Apollo XIII"

It is charming when you have someone who doesn't know a lot about watches do an article on the watch industry. That isn't to say that the journalist erred in their reporting, but rather that there is a degree of naivete to the tone regarding the topic of discussion, which is watch advertising. A lot of people correctly point out that there is a lot of consistency among watch advertising. You see the hands in the same orientation most of the time, and the date often has an "8" in it, or is at 31. The orientation of the hands is usually at about 10:10. There is nothing at all significant about this time, it is all aesthetics any symmetry. Two hands pointing up in a more or less symmetrical position just seems to look better.

The hands of the watch are done in a Breguet style, referring to the little round sections on the hands that aid with legibility. Breguet has been making hands in this fashion for literally hundreds of years. Being a traditional formal watch, this Nivrel is devoid of a date window, and any lume on the hands that would make it appear more sporty. Notice the grooved crown on the watch that adds character and functions to assist with operating the crown.

An interesting feature in the watch is the application of blue PVD, something that is pretty rare as PVD is almost always black. The rest of the case is done in polished steel. The case itself is pretty big at 45mm wide, with a design that reminds me distinctly of the sporty Jaquet Droz Grande Second SUW watch. You can click the link to compare the two and come to your own conclusion. This is not a bad thing though, as both watches are very cool looking in my opinion, with the Edox costing less than half of what the Jaquet Droz watch costs. I particularly like the grooved bezel and metal work into the lugs.

Again, this watch is available right now for 5. For more information about the watch or to inquire about purchasing, see Bob Thayers' restored Seiko Bello-Matic 4006-6021 watch here.

Two Engraved Skeletonized Beauties: The Patek Philippe ‘Art Piece” 5180/1 And The IWC Portuguese Tourbillon Mystère Squelette Watches

Done? Yea that was a bit painful to read. Not because of the "travesty of fakes watches" but because this statement is so non-consumer oriented. It was as though they needed to release something, but didn't know what to say. I am not the first person to comment about this press release. As soon as it was released, the well-thought Harry Tann had a few things to say that I mostly agree with, and I will be reiterating a few of his thoughts. I only do so to provide a complete thought.

So for the third season of Survivor Man, Les Stroud is wearing a new watch. This time it is a Tissot T-Touch Trekking. with the yellow face. While the watch comes in other colors, the yellow is meant to assist with viewing it in low light conditions (not to be stealthy). I'd opt for the darker toned faces (like the PVD all black version). You are probably familiar with the Tissot T-Touch line of watches. They are really something cool. The functions aren't anything completely unique as watch makers Suunto and Casio have been doing them for years, but Tissot is able to integrate them in a slicker manner. What makes the Tissot T-Touch watches different are the touch faces (you literally touch the section of the watch you want to activate - see the names of the functions around the face?), and the analog-digital hybridization. So you don't get more functionality out of the Tissot T-Touch watches, you just get it in a cooler  (and arguably more sayisfying) way. It should be obvious that these are quartz/computer watches, versus mechanical ones. Battery life is about 1-3 years.

You know that I have been economically deluded by the watch world when I hear that a watch costs around ,000, only to think, "that sounds like a really good price." Not that I can afford it, I just wouldn't expect an 18k rose gold-cased Audemars Piguet watch with an in house chronograph movement to go for that "low" of a price. I must have luxo-fever. But for ,000 you can't go too wrong with this beautiful chronograph version of Audemars Piguet's lovely Millenary watch. The sorta asymmetric is not off-centered as it might appear. Two oblong circles overlap to create that interesting look that Audemars Piguet perfected. Though, the chronograph version does actually have some off-centered dials.

I can hear you collectively rejoicing out there Citizen Campanola lovers. This is one of the nicest Campanola watches I have seen in a long time and represents two things. First, a beautiful cream colored dial with the signature Citizen Campanola high quality application with rich textures and deep gloss. I have a feeling its hard to truly appreciate the face of this watch without seeing it. There is almost a sunburst pattern in the design. The cream colored dials are very new and only began production this year.

ChronoShark.com One Watch Deal A Day: The Woot.com Of Timepieces Sales & Auctions The prices currently are really quite good. A drawback at this time, is that the selection is limited to mainstream brands with high distribution. Chronoshark says the main brands offered right now are: Accutron, Bulova, Citizen, ESQ, Invicta, Movado, Seiko and Technomarine. Nothing wrong at all with these brands, but don't expect to see anything exotic or too extravagant here - this is your good deal site for your basic mainstream watches. Still, the potential range of models even from these few brands is really large, there are men's and women's watches that are available, and the deals can be just great (I've been watching what they offer over the last few days and can approve). For good design and good prices I feel comfortable giving ChronoShark.com my aBlogtoRead.com Good Value Award. Certainly a site to visit from time-to-time.

Angular Momentum Asks "Whats Your Sign?," With The New Orbis Signifier Collection Of Watches Watch Releases The moon cutaway is one of the best aspects of the Orbis Signifier collection. They are a prefect way to tell the time and stick with the theme of the watch. Using the middle of the moon, you line up the disc and read the time. Perhaps not 'to the minute' precision, but pretty good. I really love the execution of the idea, and depending on the orientation and zodiac image on the watch, the moon is placed in a different position. Without attempting to state the obvious, the twelve watches in the Orbis Signifier Collection are: Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, Aries, and Pisces. Each watch is unique and the entire collection together is really lovely. Expect prices to be reasonable at a few thousand dollars. Another nice offering from Angular Momentum that is worth taking a look at.

In one fell swoop of poor articulated words, Jaeger LeCoultre insults the majority of watch owners out there and every other watch company in the industry. Working with world renowned marketing/ad agency DDB, Jaeger LeCoultre probably walked into their offices saying, "people are buying more mechanical watches, but our sales aren't up proportionally with the increased demand. Here is a million euros, do something."
