While most versions are in steel. Bill Paxton's Aquatimer is in stainless steel that gives it a better gloss, and more heft. The case is a decent 42mm wide, so as not to make it massive. One of the best parts of the watch is the bracelet. With a very unique design, it gives the watch a lot of character and tapers oh-so-nicely while being integrated with the case. A rubber strap version is also available. The model of this precise watch is IW371928. These are actually of the more rare IWC Aquatimer watches. They are also pretty well priced given the brand and the features. With a retail price of ,700, you can find street prices closer to 00 (online at least). I have a good feeling this watch is also right out of Bill Paxton's personal collection. I do think he is great in his part in HBO's Big Love, but I still can't seem to forget his whiny but charming Spacemarine Character Private Hudson in the movie Aliens.Read more ›
I like to share with people that luxury mechanical watch movements are so meticulously decorated. Most of what is spent weeks or months working on will never be viewable to anyone save for other watch makers. It is true, the highest-end watch movements have each piece decorated by hand (hundreds of pieces), most of which are hidden inside of the movement. Does this help in the function of the watch? Typically is doesn't, but it is often a matter of pride and tradition - something watches are all about. Audemars Piguet has been on a roll creating "educational" marketing videos about how they make watches and the assembly and decoration thereof. A lot of these can be found features at TheTimeTV.com. Here is one particular video that displays a lot of impressive handiwork. It is all about "the art of openworking," or otherwise the creation of decorated skeletonized movements. This video details a little bit about the decoration of the Audemars Piguet Jules Audemars Equation of Time Skeletonized watch (there is a non skeletonized version as well).
With good looks on any man's wrist, this is a good example of American ingenuity and practicality in product design. The Globemaster watch may be just what you are looking for is want a solid good mechanical watch that is easy to live with and will insprise confidence in your ability to rely on it. Plus, with a price of just 9, you'll have trouble figuring out what some other watch companies are even charging for. So please read the below review from someone just like you:

Next you'll see whimsical model of the Jellyfish, the Camouflage model. It is a fun timepiece with a cool sort of marine camo look. It hide a complex secret though. The camo rubber strap is very hard to make. Most camo straps are painted, not this one. A technician at the factory must hand apply globs of rubber to make the patterns for each strap as opposed to using the basic injections molds. There just might be the most luxurious camouflage rubber straps out there. I am going to leave it to Nubeo to tell you each detail about the watch. I think the images speak for themselves to a large degree.
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.Read more ›
One of Perrelet’s signature complications is offering various watches with two rotors - one on the back of the watch, and one on the front. After years of simply having the cool looking rotor oscillating on the face of watches, they started to get a bit more creative. The most recent iteration for a men’s watch is this Turbine collection. Designed after the turbine on a jet engine, moving the watch around has the turbine vanes spinning as though the watch was about to take off.

Being a brand new owner of this exact watch, I can say this this is a giveaway worth entering. Magrette is New Zealand's only watch maker and certainly does the nation proud. I will be presenting a full review of the Magrette Kupe's Voyage watch, but until then you can enter to win one yourself. Founder Dion McAsey is what I call a "master of presentation." He knows how to give you a special warm feeling when you not only see the watch, but in how you experience the theme and story of the timepiece, as well as the actual presentation box and packaging. The giveaway is for the very last of the 10 limited edition watches.
On paper, this watch can't be beat for under 0: Sapphire crystal, unique-but-proven Swiss ETA movement, hand-assembly and quality control based in the US, tough-brushed steel, screwed-in bracelet, crown and back, and a unique take on a classic style.Read more ›
Such as the new Class Lady Moonphase introduced at this year's Baselworld show, unfortunately Thierry Nataf's last gig. I am sad to see Thierry leave, as I have always admired and respected his vision. But, I am also very excited to see the direction that this brands goes moving forward.
Still with the Tag Heuer Carrera look, the Certina DS 1 Chrono Automatique (Automatic if you aren't in Europe!) takes everything I love about the Valjoux 7750 movement and emphasizes on its sober tool-like demeanor. That isn't to say the watch is without beautiful good looks, but it is more handsome than flashy. You'll notice that Certina chose to include two different types of pushers for the chronograph. The start and stop pusher being a bit larger and easier to use. The presence of three distinct pushers/crown on the side of the case is a nice design feature.Read more ›
The Hello Kitty Fine Line of Watches proves that watches can have a sense of humor and style and still be a good investment.
I can't wait to see what they release next.
"Aventurine is a man-made glass in which copper particles are suspended to give it a glittering appearance. It was discovered in the 17th century by Murano glass maker, Vincenzo Miotti, after he accidentally dropped copper shavings in molten glass. The result was an iridescent glass paste, which Miotti sold under the name of “aventurine” after he was granted the exclusive rights of production by the Doge of Venice in 1677.On the Galaxy, three concentrically rotating disks revolve at different speeds to indicate time by the position of the inset diamonds."
