Omega Speedmaster 2915 For Sale

Houston We've Had A Problem!

Even with its relatively complex design, all the information is displayed conveniently. I love that despite this there is some skeletonization on the dial as the date of the week and month discs are transparent sapphire over sections of the movement. Why are there two power reserve indicators? One is for the time functions and one is for the power reserve functions.

We've Found An Astronaut's Speedmaster Professional

Tech Specs from De GRISOGONO:

It is deceptively simple and pretty. I think I actually prefer Girard-Perregaux's use of minimalism over a brand like Vacheron Constantin. This is their 1966 Perpetual Calendar watch with an automatic in-house movement and also a moon phase indicator. A lovely thing in 18k white or rose gold. Don't be fooled by its demure looks, it still costs around ,000.

Speedy Tuesday – Speedmaster Professional Mark II

The Khaki X-Patrol will come in a 42mm wide steel case that is really nicely shaped. I like the curvy structure and how the chronograph pushers sort of continue that case shape. It is actually elegant - something that you probably would not assume about a watch with this name. The case is further water resistant to 100 meters and has a sapphire crystal with AR coated on the inner side of it. Overall, quite nice and I look forward to seeing the rest of what Hamilton has to offer this year at Baselworld 2012. Prices are ,295 on a leather strap or ,345 for the watch on rubber or a metal bracelet.

Gergé is spelled with the accented é so the enunciation it is actually "Ger-gey." The watches are subtle in their execution but have some interesting design elements. For instance, the dials are Côtes de Genève polished, but often with a special coating to give them a more polished look. Despite the high level of gloss on the dial they are very legible on most models. They did a good job keeping the readability factor high - a fact that I personally value a lot.

IWC Replica Portofino added a new series of single-button chronograph function

DIAL: No surprises and that's a good thing. It's well laid out with large numbers and indices. Date displace is big. I love the hands. Sizable but well proportioned. The retrograde day indicator is a very nice feature.

Omega Speedmaster Galaxy Express 999

Finally, a watch with a design as ostentatious as a Lamborghini - designed to go with your Lamborghini. New Italian watch brand Adriano Valente (did the name give it away?) has released their first watch called the AVL001. With tons of customization options, it is designed to go with the look of newer Lamborghini cars such as the Murcielago and Gallardo. It has a unique case design and (reportedly) exclusive in-house made movement. Note that their website music might give you brain seizure. Plus, even if you turn the music off on the site, it will inexplicably turn itself back on at some point and make you wonder if the ghost of a failed Milan night club is lurking in your computer to haunt you.

Wrist comfort is excellent, and legibility is too. Nice hand shape and size, good contrast against the dial, and minimal ink to distract. Note that the subdials all lack numeric markings, so reading elapsed times requires a bit of practice, and the second hand is quite approximate. I do like the day/date combo, that's nice to have.

Dutch King Willem-Alexander Wears An Omega Speedmaster

Case: 46 mm

The watch dials that the students created are interesting, but don't really do it for me. They really seem a lot more like design concept than something a watch maker would be serious about. The black sliding shield over the top watch makes no sense to me. Looks like when closed it just offers a view of one of the subdials. From a design perspective that might be cool - but it offers nothing of practical interest.

This is the third time I have written about the Clerc Hydroscaph Limited Edition Chronograph watch, and there is an interesting lesson to be learned here. Normally I would have stopped at two articles, but the third one is merited for an interesting reason. What you see here is the final production version of the Limited Edition Chronograph watch. In my last article here I reviewed a prototype version. I was really surprised at the differences between the two. Let me explain.

Despite what the watch reminds me of, it is actually a combination of artistic styles from all eras of the 20th century. In the dial is everything from art deco to pop art, as well as abstraction. Alexander Shorokoff's signature "big 60" is playfully integrated in an interesting way. Notice how the numeral is not placed where the 60 minute marker should be? It is actually to the left of it, and a small arrow points to the correct mark. This is part of the playful disorganization I was referring to above. Note the date window placed inside of the stylized spiral.

Please Help Us To Find This Stolen Speedmaster (Stolen in Berlin)

The Son of a Gun watches are among his finest creations because of how they look on the wrist. To some guys there is nothing more masculine than an art watch with bullets in it that looks like it was made somewhere between a watch factory and a skilled guy's garage. The small automatic movement uses a rotor with the back of three bullets on it that spins around pleasingly. On the dial you see between five and six small Flobert bullets tailing each other on the see-through dial. At first the concept seems silly until it just makes you smile when you put it on. I can't stress enough how much these watches aren't for everyone, but I would totally wear it once in a while to be brass and almost vulgar.

The imposing look of the watch is multiplied by its incredible exclusivity and rarity. It looks pretty cool on the wrist as well, if you can pull it off. This model with diamonds is new, of course. One like it may be made in 18k rose gold as well. The way Jean Dunand often offers a new "piece unique" is by producing the same watch but with minor color or material differences. Still, they are produced in an extremely limited fashion. The Shabaka watch, named after the Egyptian pharaoh, with its diamond bezel is priced at around 0,000.

Gold is an incredibly popular material for high-end watches marred only by its softness (and perhaps price these days). Watch cases in gold are already not pure gold in order for them to have a slightly tougher alloy. But anyone who has worn an 18k gold watch will testify that the material picks up nicks and scratches with incredible ease.
