The Limes Integral retails for about ,000 and can be had at this eBay auction, advertised as new, for a few hundred dollars cheaper. Alternatively, a Franck muller watches costs many tens of thousands of dollars. The automatic ETA 2824-2 movement has been decorated and is richly exhibited through the windowed caseback. Of particular value is the guilloche machine work viewable on the movement through the caseback window. Limes are always desirable watches for their dedication to classic designs with modern implementation.Read more ›
The Outland utilizes an idea I actually considered some time ago using revolving disks to indicate the time rather than hands. With out major modification to a standard movement, you can have rotating discs that act as digital rather than analog indicators. If the concept of digital and analog is not clear to you, the idea is that digital shows something through abstract representation, while analog "looks like what it is." Here the abstract representation of time are the numbers that we use (1,2,3,4,....), the analog representation are the hands orientating themselves to show the time. Digital and analog have nothing to do with electronic versus mechanical movements, as I have learned is considered the difference by some people.
On eBay is a Kobold Polar Surveyor with the lovely metallic arctic blue face. No doubt this watch will be sought after, but the starting bid is almost half off retail which is 50.00 plus tax and shipping. So starting at ,500.00, you get a really good deal in almost new condition according the seller. If I had to own one watch (I hope this never occurs), it would be a Kobold. I must say I have contemplated this conundrum when contemplating what watch would be most useful in a survival situation on a deserted island. www.koboldwatch.com>

This is not to say that the established watch media never talks about anything save for the ultra expensive. There are common mentions, and occasional reviews of lower priced watches. No review has been of a quartz watch though (unless a very high-end quartz), and less expensive mentions are infrequent. Yes, a good purpose of watch magazines is to beef up, and promote the high-end watch market, but at the same time, there is a dedicated group of watch lovers who cannot afford watches in the many thousands of dollars, but are still worthy consumers.
Like myself, you may have a "new watch ritual." The tender unboxing of the watch, fitting the watch to your wrist (especially if the bracelet requires removing links), and then... posing time. Yes, that time in each watch lover's life where we strike watch wearing poses in front of the mirror. Probably akin to what women do while spending far too long in dressing rooms at department stores, we stand in our bedrooms or bathrooms gauging (or merely appreciating) how the watch looks on us. If anything but "damn you look good" is expressed in your mind, you probably have some element of buyer's remorse.
The report has determined that whilst the United States represents the largest watch market in the world and is projected to reach US.6 billion by the year 2010, registering a CAGR of about 2%, Asia-Pacific is actually the fastest growing clock market globally and is projected to register a compounded annual growth rate of more than 3.4% during the ten-year period (2001 - 2010.)Read more ›
While the chronograph is the main innovation of this watch, I am particularly impressed by the execution of the full annual calendar. The Patek Philippe reference 5960P displays in the most minimalist of manners the day of the week, month, date, AM/PM indicator, along with what I consider to be the best implemented power reserve indicator on the market. What is nice, is how the information if linearly displayed in simple symmetry. No gimmicky windows or dials, just what is simple, tested, and effective.

UTS watches are not for everyone's taste, in the sense they don't get everyone immediately excited, but that is not their purpose. Like the stoic feeling of many things German, these are instruments meant to last, perform, and you keep you informed. If they look good during such activity, they aren't going to smile about it. It is up to the owner to endow such timepieces with their own sense of appreciation through years of trusted wearing.Read more ›

Analysis: Neither of these watches would be considered a value. Don't expect to hear terms like "deal, budget, economical, third world, or reasonable" when buying one of these watches. You might however hear about how the Clinton watch costs more than some people make in their entire lives in most places of the world. Regardless, when you fly to those places to help them you will look doing so, and you'll know that if they could afford your catch, they would gladly offer any number of first-born children.
Should you buy a LIP Mach 2000 Dark Master Chronograph? The answer to that all depends on whether you find a connection with the ideal presented in 1970s futurism. Do you want a piece of modern design history? Can you appreciate the toils of industrial design and post-Bauhaus era industrial French charm? Will the concept of psychological design resonate with you in so far that the bright colors and organic shapes combine with pure function to interface better with humans? The LIP Mach 2000 Chronograph design is one man's attempt to address these issues and more. An interesting watch on several levels, full appreciation of this watch stems from pulling back the layers with an understanding of Roger Tallon's original design. The new revival series of the LIP watches are far easier to own, and a much better value that the originals ever were. Not often is a watch "re-released," and now for the first time in America, so take a close look. The LIP Mach 2000 Dark Master Chronograph earns a permanent place in my collection.
This item is being featured on eBay, an apt place for such a one of a kind piece. A working mechanical watch, surrounded by steampunk decoration on a very functional leather cuff strap. Most people cannot get these at any price. This is certainly a showy watch. Perfect for shows, industrial music concerts, or other avant garde functions. You cannot the interesting nature of functional art like this. Lets hope the artist continues to make such wonderful work.

We are lucky that Seiko spends as much time as they do in the lab dreaming up new movements. In fact, Seiko watches now come in at least five different movement flavors. You can get a traditional quartz movement, an automatic mechanical movement, a quartz Kinetic movement, a quartz Kinetic Direct Drive movement, and a quartz regulated Spring Drive mechanical movement. Seiko's dream seems to be combining the best of both worlds in terms of quartz and mechanical movements. Arguably the Spring Drive embodies this dream as it looks like an automatic mechanical movement, but has the accuracy of a quartz movement.
The premise of an automatic watch movement is that a rotor (shaped like a half circle) spins in the catch case, which in turn winds the main spring. The rotor is connected at what would have been the center of a full circle, and gravity weighs it down such that it spins when the watch is moved around. Typically, if you wear a watch daily, you should never have to worry about it stopping. This is because it moves around enough to sufficiently wind.
This all makes a lot of sense once you know that the designer Ruedi Kulling is an industrial designer who always had a place in his heart for fashionable, yet functional wearable art. The style of European modern minimalism is obviously displayed throughout this watch which can make it difficult to identify its source. So many other makers emphasize this ideal such as Mondaine, Swatch, Ikepod, and Alessi. Regardless, what separates the Xemex is the purity of it's symmetry and purpose.Read more ›

Gazing upon what was likely the largest watch store I will ever set my feet in, I was instantly wowed with the over-the-top interior design, and amazing selection of watches, many I had never seen in person before at Tourneau Las Vegas; possibly the only place in America that certain watch models are available. I commend this Tourneau branch for having quality fashion watches such as LP Italy and Reactor, to the elite Audemars Piguet, Zenith, Blancpain, and many others. Other rare brands available there include Arnold & Sons, Krieger, and Milus. The sheer number of watch makers is exciting, enough to instantly excite any watch fan.
An effective business name is whimsical yet professional sounding. You want to target the broadest audience, and your name should have some relation back to what you are selling or providing. The best way to start is by taking some blank pieces of paper and writing down terms associated with your product or service. As you write these terms down, start combining and messing around with the words. Draw them in interest ways, and have fun drawing. Don't limit yourself to a word processor. Next, take terms you like and Google them. If a term is not used much, you might be on to something. If at first you do not succeed, just remember that good branding is a process, and the right term will come to you. Try not to settle on terms that are too generic or common. You will not have a good business name by just placing an "e" or "i" in front a common word.Read more ›

There are divers watches and then there are DIVERS watches! The new Hydroscaph GMT Diver 1000m from Clerc is the kind of watch you would wear if you could go base jumping underwater. To say it is extreme is an understatement, this watch is 100% in your face and to be honest...I love it! The unsual lines and curves coupled with the stunning dial all come together to present a truly excellent example of advanced watch design.
