Mechanical Swiss automatic movement (28,800 vibrations/hour).
Power reserve: 42 hours.
Functions: hours, minutes, seconds, date and time under water on the bezel.
[Ed. note - I loved wearing and photographing this piece. A great dive watch. Simple good looks with AP quality. Like Meehna said, not cheap, but not still lower on the AP range of prices. Great daily wear.]

The Colormark series is certainly one of Luminox's pro style watches, with lots of function in mind. I love the chunky rotating diver's bezel that clicks with 60 secure sounds, and tritium gas tube placed under a small window at the 60 minute marker. A lot of watches in this price range can learn lessons from Luminox when it comes to bezel design and refinement - even though it is made from polycarbonate. Functionally the watch is very reliable and simply to use. Though I must say that the crown is a bit harder than it should be when you are trying to pull it out. On the one hand it is nice to know it is securely "in there," but it is tough and awkward to pull out.
Near the time you will be reading this the Plastiki will set sail. Literally, without the wind the crew is stuck on board playing cards, and generating enough juice to surf the Internet a bit via their satellite connection. You can log-on yourself to the Plastiki website (theplastiki.com) for journey updates, more information about the crew, and to learn more about Adventure Ecology. For more details on the limited edition Adventure Ecology watch or getting one, contact IWC, or your nearest IWC dealer.
While the Kia Kaha has a solid caseback, the Magrette Kaitiaki (meaning "guardian or protector") has a exhibition caseback with a sapphire crystal window. Here, you can see the Swiss ETA 2824 automatic movement, with a Magrette style engraved rotor. Back when I learned about New Zealand based Magrette I urged them to offer watches with rotors hand-engraved using the wonderful Maori style. Now you can see how lovely the result is after they decided it was a good idea. The Kaitiaki has another special feature. Buyers will get their names engraved on the back of the watch.Read more ›

He pointed out the outline of tape on the floor. “That will be my desk.” He preferred I not take pictures of him at his temporary desk. A handyman was drilling audibly in the other room while on a ladder. This is John Simonian’s new office space. A short stroll from the previous location, no doubt the shrewd businessman took advantage of depressed real estate market to upgrade his surroundings — roughly tripling the size of his domain. Though most people who indirectly do business with John won’t ever see it, save for a few select clients who are fortunate. Simonian is the owner of Westime, the popular luxury watch store situated around the corner off Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills. Though he really does a lot more than that.Read more ›

Dial is very impressive, and totally Cartier. The sapphire crystal, while curved a bit, is exceptionally clear. Lots of AR coating and a perfectly even crystal thickness ensures a totally glare and distortion free look in most viewing angles. Other watch makers need to look to Cartier to model their crystals and AR coatings. You'd barely known anything was over the dial at times. Using a slightly more simple version of the Roadster dial style, the Roman numerals and inner hour marker ring make the watch enjoyable to read. Overall the dial on the Roadster S is very similar to that on the Roadster. There is a new outline on the ring of where the bullet shaped magnifier lens used to be to retain that shape. I love that Cartier uses a black colored disc for the date with a silver colors font. Super classy. The watch hands are simple and legible, with applied SuperLumiNova.

Introducing A New Swiss-Made Automatic Diver’s Watch For Men That Is Big On Performance And Not On Your Wallet
All watch manufactures are split up into two main areas: production and assembly/finishing. Production is where the parts are actually made. This is where the mega bucks machines live and doing their work quietly. Amazing inventions, an assortment of modern wonders are programmed to produce the tiny plates, pinions, and gears (etc...) that go into each watch. Here engineers work, in calm, slightly chemically smelling chambers which are well lit and remarkably peaceful. Go to the other side of things and you'll find watchmakers in white robes sitting at high desks which operate similar to those from hundreds of years ago. A white environment is kept extremely clean. JCB points out how clean the manufacture is - clean enough to eat off of. It probably is. Watch manufactures are quite operations, and the workers peacefully go about the delicate process of making watches. I stroll by with camera in hand. Some appreciate the opportunity to be immortalized in watch related media with a loupe over their eye. Others shy away from the ordeal - as though they chose watch making to be introverted. The characters at Hublot (like most modern manufactures) are young and upbeat. Despite the slowness of making little machines, there is an energetic feeling in the halls.Read more ›
The watch crown is cool and looks like the top of a caste tower. The proudly German watch never misses a beat being a functional item - but here plays with a fashionable appearance. There is an interesting addition of the red colored seconds hand to the dial, and the hour markers are partially connected creating a second cushion shape within the dial that matches the case shape. Attached to the case via loop style lugs is a quality black leather strap.
Inside the watch, and visible through the sapphire caseback window is an Audemars Piguet in-house made Calibre 2226/2840 automatic chronograph movement. Good stuff - just what to expect from AP. As a limited edition watch, I am surprised that this one actually did it's job of being highly collectible and valuable. Too many limited edition pieces in the watch world pretty much killed that promise for most of them out there. Pricing these days on the Audemars Piguet Royal Offshore Juan Pablo Montoya limited edition timepieces run about ,000 in titanium and about ,000 (figures online). Not sure of recent auction results. This is pretty amazing given the pieces. Chalk it up to good design, and remembrance of a time when Formula 1 belonged to Audemars Piguet.Read more ›
Both of these watches are Bell & Rosses, and both are BR01 watches. Though they are like twins separated at birth. One went the path of luxury while the other spent their years in a discipline rich military environment. I like that two personalities can come from the same type of origin, and both are useful watches in their own respect. The first watch is a new one, but it was announced a while back. it is the Bell & Ross BR01-93 GMT. Previous to this, only the BR03 watch had a GMT model, and it was a bit smaller than the BR01.
So whatever the reason may be, we are now faced with the fact that the Swatch Group runs the watch making side of Tiffany & Co. From a logistical side of things I am sure it is run well, but I have had issues with the watches that have been released out of this new partnership from day one. Last year I published this article discussing how I felt underwhelmed by the new Tiffany & Co watches at Baselworld 2009. This was the first time we had seen new pieces from the Tiffany and Swatch deal. My problem was all about the designs.Read more ›
