Longiness admiral watches
Most important to any watch design is the face upon which you spend most of your eye time. Here the C1 suffers much of the same confusion as the rest of the watch. When I first looked at the C1, the first thing that came to mind was, "what is going on in there." I desperately wanted to sift thought the menage of circles, lines, and textures to reach something coherent. I could barely tell what time it was. The best part of the face is the seconds dial. This is easily the best part of the C1 overall, but nothing particularly novel. Instead of using a traditional hand to indicate the seconds, Concord created an entire register shaped rotating circle with an arrow on each side to tell the time. While it does not add to the functionality, it really doesn't detract from it, and is a welcome visual novelty; appealing each time you notice it. At least here I can commend the design.

These might not be the traditional watches worn to such formal events, but they are better choices for the modern male who wants a dynamic watch that fits well in to such a role, yes is not limited by it. We need a watch that looks good in a tux, looks good at work, and looks good during play. The traditional formal watch does not necessarily do this, but I think you will agree each of these would. My continued congratulations to the happy couple, and the best for everyone's joyous occasions.
Sellita is a growing movement maker in Switzerland, but has had a bit of a copycat history. They mostly copied ETA movements. Can they do this? Well, probably, at least in the US. Most ETA movements have been around for a while and in the US Patents last for 20 years only. Because movements are machines, they only intellectual property protection they would have is a patent, and presumably the European patent laws are similar to those of the US. Take the ETA 2824-2 movement, which has been around since the 1970s. Because over 20 years has passed since the, copycats are free to make the movements, the only barrier would be technology. Meaning Sellita and other movement makers would have to have the proper machinery to produce the delicate movement parts. China on the other hand would never even think to check on infringing intellectual property rights before copying something.
