Longines Telemeter & Tachymeter Chronograph Watches Watch Releases

As a Chinese watch, the Zhuke still contains a Swiss movement. Inside the Zhuke is a Swiss ETA 2824 which should satisfy most watch lovers though Longio's price for the Zhuke seems high. To be honest, most "Swiss watches" have Chinese cases, dials, and straps with ETA movements. So what makes the Longio Zhuke different? Not too much aside from the fact that it has the name of a Chinese brand on it. And it does so in a sort of cool way. There is Chinese writing on the case and even the name "Zhuke" is Chinese. When buying a Chinese watch - this is the way to go. It doesn't hurt that it is a limited edition as well.

The actual movement of the Urwerk EMC is 100% traditional and mechanical. Though Urwerk design is modern and many of them materials are new and exotic, this is a classic manually wound watch movement. Next to the movement however is the rate monitoring equipment, which is electronic - though Urwerk wanted to make sure the watch had no battery. Why no battery? Because luxury watches don't have batteries. Instead, there is a capacitor and hand-crank generator that allows you to produce enough energy manually to power the system. It begins with a few cranks (like starting up an old - very old - car) and then pressing a button to begin the timing measurement.

Omega Speedmaster 50th Anniversary Limited Series

The men's version carries the reference 522. which should indicate that it is a 46 mm case and will be delivered on a stainless steel bracelet. Powered by the same caliber 8500 co-axial movement found in much of the non-limited edition Planet Ocean lineup, the Sochi 2014 model is distinctive thanks to a subtle use of red and blue coloring in the countdown scale on the ceramic unidirectional bezel. The standard case back has been swapped for a commemorative Sochi 2014 design but I think this is the most reserved limited edition Omega Planet Ocean I have ever seen. You could essentially buy this model simply because you like the use of red and blue on the bezel. Personally, I could care less about the Olympics but I think the bezel design is kinda cool, some added color to what has otherwise become a fairly stoic range of watches.

Last year at the Geneva Time Exhibition (GTE) I met with Roland Murphy of RGM to see the prototype of their third in-house made movement called the Caliber 20. RGM is and has been the premier US-based watch maker and for years didn't make their own movements. Instead they sourced Swiss movements and made fine watches with their own dials and cases. Eventually they released their first in-house made movement with the caliber 801, and then with the MM2 inside of the Pennsylvania Tourbillon. Their most recent movement is the tonneau-shaped Caliber 20.

If you're even remotely familiar with TokyoFlash, you're aware that their design studio turns out some rather interesting pieces, with all manner of twists on what we'd call the "classic" digital readout. Today, they've jumped in with a watch that's ready to tell you when it's time to let someone else drive home. It is the Kisai Intoxicated, and it has a functioning breathalyzer incorporated into the design. Unlike the hoax Casio Breathalyzer that turned out to be a fake, this is the drunken deal. How is it that both of these came out in the same week?

Speedmaster Price Guide

This is in comparison with an on-line purchase where there is a cosmetic or technical problem with a watch. In most cases, you’ll have to remove the band or strap, carefully wrap and package the head. Write out a report on what’s wrong with the watch, bring the package to a shipper, pay for the shipping, pay for the insurance and wait. This whole process can be especially disappointing if in some cases, such as what happened to me a few times, the watch was defective on arrival. I didn’t even have time to enjoy the purchase before I had to wrap the whole thing back up and send it away.

If I have any negative opinions about this watch is that I have yet to master, without referring to the manual, the various features of the dial. Also, this is not a watch you want to get wet. It's listed at 30 meters water resistant, however, the dealer and Breitling (via the manual) are pretty clear about this: do not submerge it... I guess, the slide rule, while super cool, does have a clear shortcoming.
