Here you have the Perpetual Weekly Calendar watch, that is also know as the TX 400 series of watches. This particular model is the reference T3C301 that identifies the dial color as well as the metal bracelet. Other versions of this watch in different colors or a leather strap are available - each with a distinctly formal attitude. There is a particular reason I like this model the best. It reminds me of the classic "dad's watch," but now with more interesting functionality. So let's explore the first part of that statement. The watch has a thematic resembles to the classic Rolex Datejust. You can see this in the jubilee style metal bracelet and the shape of the case along with the steel and gold tones. The similarities end there, but it is enough to give it that classic man's watch look. Aside from that you have a useful perpetual calendar that focuses on the week. The month is not always shown, but you don't need it to be shown all the time. To see what the month is, you press the pusher above the crown and the orange tipped hand moves to the month (as they are written out around the dial) for 5 seconds until it returns to the original position.
Project X ensures that the DLC coating process is done in a special way to ensure that all surfaces are even and the same color. I love how they got really tricky parts of the modifications right - proof of their years of experience that is required to make these dream Rolex watches a reality.Consider this and realize that a simple thing like making a watch all black with an ultra tough coating, and up to the standards people have with new Rolex watches... and you begin to get a lot more impressed with the result.
A new watch from a new company called Red8 celebrates this concept. The idea comes from a European man with deep experience in the watch making world, while the watch is produced, proudly so, in Asian, and with a Japanese movement. The Red8 watch is more than just some new style of watch, it is a statement and closer to new concept of watch. One thing in recent pop culture reminds me of what the Red8 watch is all about. Remember the craze that Lance Armstrong's yellow "Livestrong" rubber bracelet made. You saw just so many people wearing them. Then you saw legions of other companies take the same concept and make it their own. It was a fun way of accessorizing your look with a message.
