A new project for LUM-TEC is using their fans to actually design a new watch line that will be released in 2010. Using the watch enthusiast forum, watchandclockforum.com, LUM-TEC has a dedicated forum area where discussions among members are leading to heated discussions on all aspects of the new watch, and the way it will look. Separate discussions will cover elements of the new watch such as color, hands, case shape, strap, dial, etc... Polls will determine what design choices eventually make it in the final stages.

One of the greatest days in manned space flight history

A. Lange & Söhne Glashutte Manufacture Visit Part 1: German Luxury Watch Region And History Inside the Manufacture Getting closer to Glashutte from Dresden I learned that the area is known for a history of wood carving and porcelain. In the 18th century, Augustus the Strong, the ruler of Saxony at the time (where Glashutte is located), wished to bring the Chinese art of porcelain making to Germany, and it was done with great success. Today, Meissen porcelain is some of the best in the world. The region’s woodwork is equally impressive, with some of the most beautiful modern built furniture I’ve ever seen. It seems as though perfection is in the blood of the people, and has been for hundreds of years. This of course is part of the German work ethic: “slow, steady, and perfect the first time” (as I like to say).

So lets get to the Mysterieuses part. Basically, when the word 'mystery' or any synonym for it is placed in a watch name, it means there is something that moves the hands that is hidden. That is all. Here, the central points of the hands don't appear to be attached to anything. They aren't. The hands are actually attached to the rings that they appear to revolve around. Thus creating the illusion that the hands are moving on their own. See what I mean? You can't help but appreciate the sober festive look of this solid gold dialed watch. So much emphasis is placed on the tourbillon, it is almost amusing; as though Montblanc is shouting "yes we can!" (build a tourbillon that is). A few years ago it used to be a big feat for a watch maker to build an in-house tourbillon. Now it is almost an obligation. Here is Montblanc traveling down this necessary road.

Swiss Army Dive Master 500m Watch Has Sublte, Good, Lasting Looks: Perfect All Purpose Watch For Many? Watch Releases The bezel is a combination of many things. A couple of other Swiss Army watches, perhaps a little Breitling thrown in the mix. So many rotating diver's bezel have a look such as this that it is hard to decipher one specific source of the design. Swiss Army adds a bit of character by removing one alternating sections of girth on the first 15 minute scale as a method to more easily measure the first 15 minuted which is an important measurement for divers.

So for the fashion elite out there, here are four watches like the iPhone 3G that are fashionable and come in black or white.

A deal or value is attractive for anyone, no matter how much money they have. Be frank with the price, even if it is high. If you are hiding it too much, people just think the margin is criminal in size.

The dial itself shows the metallic blue that people go crazy over. It is a great color, and when done right makes for a beautiful watch. The Sinn 203 Arktis was one of the first to use such a blue dial, and since then a few have displayed it. I am not sure why the watch is known as the "Daylight." I am guessing that since blue faced models are often arctic themed, the name refers to the fact that such polar locations of the Earth experience far more daylight, especially in the summer. The little touches are also nice, like the matching colored date window disc, and the easy to read chronograph seconds hand.

There are a few versions of the watch in terms of dial colors and strap/bracelet options. Palladium dials as well as navy blue dials with various color mixtures. A Palladium 950 bracelet is available or a blue alligator strap with a soft leather lining. Size of the watch is 43mm wide and about 40mm high. A nice size, but not exactly "macho." dimensions. Still a great looking timepiece. Retail prices are very high (k-k), but expect to find them for closer to ,000 in most places.

The dial patterns are gorgeous really. Look closely and you will see a traditional Chinese background design that looks great with the characters. Functionality is pretty chronograph standard, utilizing the full feature set of the automatic Valjoux 7750 with the 12 hour stopwatch, date, and day of the week. I love the size of this watch at 47mm wide. What is funny is that Asian market watches are typically much smaller than those for Europe and the US, typically 36-38mm. So I hope that the Chinese are ready to bring on the big ways of the west with this Ernst Benz watch.

Two Engraved Skeletonized Beauties: The Patek Philippe 'Art Piece" 5180/1 And The IWC Portuguese Tourbillon Mystère Squelette Watches Feature Articles The IWC Portuguese Tourbillon Mystère Squelette is a different type of skeletonized watch altogether. Rather than decorating a simple movement as with the Patek Philippe 5180, IWC decorated what is essentially a very complex movement; an IWC-manufactured 5000 calibre. Along with having the time and date, this watch includes a tourbillon escapement and a seven day power reserve, which is a lot for an automatic watch. There are further items of interest in the movement which represents a pinnacle of what IWC can achieve, but I will leave it at that.

Seiko Pullsse Odograph Watch Is Little Japanese Overlord Of Walking, On Your Wrist! Watch Releases Seiko Pullsse Odograph Watch Is Little Japanese Overlord Of Walking, On Your Wrist! Watch Releases Why on Earth is this watch not officially sold in the US? I mean you can still get it online, but people need a watch like this to get them through the day, at least any walking parts. Frankly, I will all but forget how to stroll or pace without this watch. The Seiko Pullsee is technically a fitness watch, but really serves to do something that the Japanese love, give you extraneous information. An upgrade from the mere "Pedessa" model, the Pullsee relies of two basic sensors to tell you everything you need to know. It has a built in pedometer and rate-heart monitor. As an odograph, this watch literally measures walking.  The pedometer is an internal sensor, while I believe the heart rate monitor is attached to the strap which would touch your wrist. In addition, it has a calendar, stop watch functions, calendar, and other functions you'd expect in a fitness watch.

Sinn's almost iconic U1 is the latest to enjoy the black on black look. Instead of red and white trim, we get the same type of black toned luminant on the hands and number indexes. It certainly has a "bad ass" look. The trick to such watches being readable is the contrast of texture and tone. This way you can have the same colors, but still have some ability to read the watch.

I am glad that Frederique Constant chose a real driver's car that impacted the lives of many, instead of some elusive super car that only a handful of people have actually driven. For the many collectors who own a restored Austin Healey, this will make an excellent companion, and serve as a nice reminder for those who used to have one.

rolex knockoff watches in united states

So then, why are the brands so up in arms about fake watches? Well for one thing it is frustrating. It is illegal and it does feel like it is taking customers right out of your pocket. How does a brand stay exclusive if fakes are all over the place? It just doesn't feel right to them, but I haven't seen a lot of convincing arguments that show how fakes watches really hurt them. Read the above press release again and think about the arguments. See how they lump numbers together. The titles are powerful, but the substance is lacking in my opinion as someone who is train in argumentation. I am totally sympathetic to the dilemma, but I just don't like their approach to the issue. It damages the credibility of an entire industry when statements like the one above are released that don't offer good support and thin arguments.

The first in this line of watches was the basic Tissot T-Touch, which came in various flavors (colors, straps, dials). They even had a white mother of pearl version for the ladies (yea, it was cool). Then Tissot released this version of the T-Touch which is the Trekking model. The size and look of the watch was dramatically altered to have a very modern, thinner, and more technical (as opposed to strong look). Thus you can see the smooth angular lines on the (rotating) bezel. The Trekking line comes on a rubber or nice looking metal bracelet. Further, the metal used is titanium, so they are really light. In the entire T-Touch line, steel or titanium options exist. The newest T-Touch watch to be released by Tissot is the T-Touch Expert. This is more similar in design to the original T-Touch, but has a larger case overall, a larger LCD panel, and some upgraded looks and dial graphics.

Watches From 2075

I am excited to see more of these Sea Touch watches soon while playing with them in stores and annoying sales people. The official release is going to be at Baselworld at the end of March. Expect retail availability soon afterward. Prices will most likely be between ,000 - 00.

With pride I can finally say that I have discovered the perfect "Republican watch." While there are many other watch which employ conservative looks with a hint of style, this Swiss Army watch is a perfect exemplar.

My real journey began on the drive from Dresden to Glashutte, a small town known above all else, for watch making. Within the petite confines of two major streets, are several major watch makers. A. Lange & Sohne was the first of them back in 1845 when the original company was founded by Adolf Lange ("söhne" in the brand name means sons, as it was later named when the Lange & Cie was taken over by Richard Lange, Adolf Lange's son). After World War II, the area was appropriated by the communists and the government took over all factories, effectively terminating the private business. However, soon after Germany’s reunification in 1989, A. Lange & Sohne was back, and with a rejuvenated desire to be Germany’s best and most exclusive watch maker. In 1994, after 4 years of development (yeah, it takes that long), Lange released its first new collection of watches. The flagship model was the Lange 1, a highly successful, but initially controversial piece given its design. Today the Lange 1 is an icon of Lange Uhren, and one of its best sellers. Each of the original Lange “return” watches from 1994 utilized the trend of having individually developed and manufactured movements for each watch. The theme behind all the watches was to take the style and artisanship of pocket watches (that Lange originally produced before the Second World War) and place them in wrist watches. They were to be watches for those who could appreciate them the most, and have the means to afford what was painstakingly designed to be the best.

For The Billionaire Tycoon In Us All, There Is The Kunstwinder Industrial Collection Oil Barron Two Watch Winder Luxury Items The particular model that I saw was the yellow gold plated Limited Edition Kunstwinder. However, there are steel editions available as well. I really don't know too much about these watch winders or Kunstwinder as a company. Here is a run down though. The winder itself is plugged in for power. It sits on a wooden base, that has a drawer for watches or whatever can fit. The two watch "springs" that hold the watches in place are the same or similar to JFA watch winder springs (which is a good thing). That means it works for almost every watch for a secure fit that makes it easy to place and remove watches. The winder has two modes of operation. One is just continually spinning in the same direction, and other has the watches spin in alternating directions with pauses (to avoid over winding). Orange and green LED indicators give you an idea of the operating mode that the winder is in. The entire winder is covered with a rounded glass covering dome.
