Sporting Jellyfish & Medusse Watches While Spending Quality Time With Nubeo Hands-On

That is where RSW gets its moon and its flower.

Appreciating the Maitres du Temps Chapter Two watch gets even easier seeing stunning live video of the watch. Founder and owner Steven Holtzman discusses the luxury timepiece in this new video by aBlogtoRead.com content partner TheTimeTv.com. He takes a good approach to discussing the "volume" line (still only about 200 a year) of Maitres du Temps watches compared to the ultra exclusive Chapter One watch. The video is worth a view not only because of the discussion, but also because of the crafty video of the watch itself. You really get a good feel for the curves, the beauty, the finish, and the boldness of the dial. It keeps getting better looking each time I see it.

Overall, this is definitely a 'safe' Moonphase model, especially when placed within the Zenith family. The design is not supernatural in its aesthetic, but rather very traditional and pure. Looking past the simplicity simple of this design, there is still so much going on with this Zenith model. The milky, lustrous, Mother of Pearl dial face is the perfect backdrop for this elegant complication, with the Moonphase indicator positioned at 6 o'clock and the second hand positioned at 9 o'clock.

Most people cannot afford pricier chronographs from the top Swiss Watch companies. So it's always refreshing to see that such luxuries, such achievements in watchmaking, are not held for only a select few.

And as you watch this video, the Lotus Flower comes to represent so much more. This is the power of the Perrelet double rotor unfolding. Your knowledge of mechanical watches growing. The abundance of time spread out before you.

You should know that this article was written over a period of time starting soon after visiting the Lange watch manufacture up to a couple of months later. Stretching it out has helped me mull over the important points of the trip, as I walked away quite impressed and inspired right after the visit. There is really no sufficient amount of words or pictures I could provide to describe how watches are made, not for mainstream watches, and certainly not for luxury watches. I asked easily over 100 questions that day. Though I had 100 more, and probably 1000 interesting points I never even thought to ask but were important. This was just a small snapshot in a world of craftsmanship that is truly rare in today's world. It is easily to complain about why we need such expensive watches when the world has so many other problems, but you would be missing the point. Is it true that certain luxury goods are simply expensive for the sake of being described "a luxury." This really isn't the case with Lange Uhren. They simply produce something at a very high quality that costs a lot to make. Basically this is what all real luxury items started out as - a maker of "the best" of something, not just a status symbol. So yes, it is true that the average price of a new A. Lange & Sohne watch is about 35,000 - 40,000 Euros. It is also true that in this humble watch lover's opinion, who can earnestly not even begin to think about affording one of these timepieces, I can honestly say the price is totally worth it. If you haven't had an opportunity to really appreciate an A. Lange & Sohne watch, even if you are familiar with the brand, I encourage you to take a close and intimate look the next time you are able to handle on of their purely German timepieces. Note that if you ask anyone at A. Lange & Sohne about how the watches or made, or to describe a feature of the watch, you are in store for a thorough and detail answer from people passionate about their brand (as they rightly should be).

You can get a great feel for exactly what the watches look like here. I wish you could see the turbine spinning in action - it looks so cool. Nothing like wheel spinners 🙂 The finish in the turbine blades is a brushed polish, to give that an authentic aviation look. Like I said in my original review, the spinning turbines (that spin with the automatic rotor to wind the mechanical automatic movement) do not hinder the view of the hands which are nicely conspicuous. The naked titanium model is the easiest to read due to the high contrast of the hands. Each is covered in lume which is nice. The face of the watch as a nice deep feeling to it. You can look down into it and see all the layers. The periphery of the dial is sloped inward, and you can see the easy to view hour makers that make this more than simply a showy watch.

Ralf Tech WRX Perlage Dial Diving Watch Wrist Time Reviews I recently discovered the haphazardly named Ralf Tech line of watches (I'm sorry, but the name "Ralf Tech" inspires no horological confidence). Ralf Tech is a pretty well known diving equipment maker, who now has a few nice lines of diving watches. The French company makes some really nice watches at good prices starting at a few hundred bucks to about three grand for the top of the line limited edition automatic chronograph watches.

The first Bell & Ross BR01 watch focused on the middle era, while the quartz BR watch came second - and now the BR Heritage is the newest in the collection. At first glance, the BR Heritage looks a lot like the standard BR01 (or BR03) watch line. When you put the two together, you can easily see the differences. Aside from the vintage colors, the hands and indexes are a bit different. The BR Heritage goes Panerai style minimalist having less indicators on the dial. The hands — equally as effective — are more classically instrumental in design.

I've placed some comparison images of the limited edition model and the standard GPW for you to see the difference. You probably agree that the Elite limited edition model is something special. The case of the watch is 44mm with and about 15mm tall. Part of that has to do with the thick 3.5mm tall sapphire crystal. The lugs are place 24mm apart to allow for an impressively wide strap. 24mm is the same width as most Panerai watch straps. The design of the case itself is a blend of aggressive styling with technical futuristic look. It does this in a subtle manner because use of too many complex curves and angles makes a watch look awkward once it is on your wrist. Not the case here.

Oddly enough, the watch industry has incredible difficultly getting decent low-cost watch winders out to us. For that reason you will find that most of the affordable ones are Chinese made, unless you want to spend many hundreds or thousands of dollar for something basic that is American or European made. Having said that, a lot of Chinese made watch winders are pure garbage. I've had some that die consistently within a few months. For that reason it is important to get one that you can trust, or at least maintain yourself cheaply. On the plus side, a lot of the Chinese made watch winders are cheap enough to be "disposable" to a degree. Today I am going to review a Chinese made watch winder with what I am told has a Japanese motor, that significantly adds to the value, as Japanese motors are far superior to what China typically produces on a mass level. I don't mean to sounds as though I am bashing Chinese goods, but rather that the reality is that much of their goods are so low quality, and in such great numbers, as it overshadows the good things being manufactured in China these days.

The majority of new Breitling watches that are released don't excite me. It is a lot of the same to be honest. Oh look, another chronograph watch in a heavy highly polished metal case, maybe with a rotating bezel or a slide rule. That is basically most Breitling watches - although some are better looking than others. This watch is different because it is of the few that has the cool SuperQuartz calibre 78 movement. This is the movement that the famous and popular Aerospace models had. Yes, it is a quartz movement, but it is what is known as a "themoline" quartz. Meaning it has a temperature sensor that adjusts the vibration frequency of the quartz crystal to adjust to temperatures so that the watch can remain as accurate as possible. This takes the watch from being accurate to within a few seconds a month to being accurate to within a few seconds a year. Like the original Aerospace watches, the Airwolf Raven is a COSC certified Chronometer.

The hardened mineral crystal on the case is impressively domed  (just a bit), which is a nice touch. It just wouldn't have felt right being flat. There is no AR coating on the mineral crystal, but this is usually reserved for more expensive sapphire crystals that would have increased the price of this watch by at least 50%. On to the bracelet which is a great part of the watch. I was excited to have my first mesh steel strap ever, and it is really cool. The construction uses a thin weave of metal that results in more than enough flexibility. It is also really thin at just over a millimeter. The fit is very comfortable on your wrist, and attractive. It does not go with every piece of clothing I have, but overall a good and modern look (even though mesh bracelets have been around at least 60 years). For us men, the mesh bracelet sometimes catches arm hair. Not a big deal, but something you should know about if you are particularly sensitive to this.

Tell me that this isn't the ultimate luxury pirate themed watch. The Torpeda Pirata line of watches has pirate (Pirata) in the name, starting the obsession with pirates that Cuervo y Sobrinos needed to make this watch. I don't ever recall instances of pirates using torpedoes though, but the source of the Torpedo name comes from another collection from the brand. Cuervo y Sobrinos is a brand that relaunched a few years ago from a classic Cuban watch brand. Style choices for the brand's designs include traditional Havana style and tastes from the Caribbean. The self motto of the brand is that they make watches with a Latin spirit and Swiss heart. Oh, and it is good to mention while I still have your attention that every Cuervo y Sobrinos watch comes in an actual humidor that doubles as a watch case. The Torpedo Pirata Moon Phase adds to last year's Torpedo Pirata GMT watch, which was the first in this limited edition line. The Moon Phase version is limited to 125 pieces.

Temption Cameo Watch Review: Boutique Eccrentric Good Taste  Wrist Time Reviews Without sounding silly, I would suggest that the sunburst hour marker extensions on the dial give the watch a more ‘majestic’ look. While the dial could not be considered ‘exciting’ it is certainly pleasing to the eye. My feeling on the Cameo is that the watch is a look enhancer, rather than attention stealer - a subtle but bold timepiece that seems to make anyone look a bit better with it on. I’ve been wearing my Cameo watch a lot since I got it and it keeps making me happy. I love how it looks, how it feels, and how unique it is. Some people (like me) enjoy the idea that no one else seems to be familiar with the Temption brand. I’d like to change that, but admit to feeling hip with a strong, but little known brand. For that reason I am giving the watch my aBlogtoRead.com Seal of Approval award. temption-watches.de

One of the new watches takes a case and covers it with vulcanized rubber, for one of the coolest looks of the new line. This style places a thin rubber coating on the surfaces of the watch. The look doesn't exactly make them appear "high-market" but it is functional, and protects the metal underneath. The Tiffany & Co. Mark T-57 had some watches that also experimented with use of vulcanized rubber. There is also the new bracelet/strap quick change feature. A clip on the watch makes these elements modular and easy to change. I like this a lot as depending on your mood or need, a diving watch needs to have a different strap. This is a great functional addition to the Aquatimer line.

The attrition rate is huge amongst opera singers, so it is a small, close-knit community. With such a small group of creative people, many share the passion and freely discuss and compare. While I love Omega and Rolex, many of my associates are interested in Breitlings and Panerai models.
