The watch buying landscape is relatively interesting as retail industries go. Most interesting or rare watches fall within the "luxury item" group given their pricing. A distinct feature of this group involves a good deal of efforts to keep prices high. High prices don't necessarily just mean high profits for the retailer. A psychological effect to the consumer of keeping prices high is to elevate the status of a product, given the existence of a suitable market willing to pay for high status goods that is. In this arena, watches that are priced higher have the illusion of more prestige, rarity, and class. While often times you get what you pay for, the price of a watch is not always going to be commensurate with ownership experience or overall satisfaction. The truth is that watch pricing is a game, and a game that watch companies fight to win.

The color black is very in right now. The "goes with anything" color is increasingly popular for watches, and with good reason. The LP Celano is an excellent embodiment of what you want a black watch to be. Dark, yet apparent. The face of the watch features a glossy black finished, with highly polished steel arrow hands. The effect is impressive, and you get a beautiful to look at watch with excellent legibility. A great touch is the black ceramic cabochon on the crown. Cabochons are either jewels or other materials in the crown which don't add any function, but are a desirable decorative element.
"Support incoming calls with big head sticker..." "Support incoming call vibration..." "Personality design and delicate craftsmanship, having flown line figure." These are some humorously translated and hefty promises for these quirky Chinese made phones that will operate on some US GSM phone carriers.

A few months ago, Piaget released the Altiplano Petit Seconds which I discussed here. I heralded the watch as a beautiful achievement in design simplicity, and compactness in a mechanical watch. Piaget has taken the same movement and watch, but now created a skeletonized product. The watch is called the Piaget Altiplano Squelette (meaning Skeleton in French), and to me, is no ordinary skeletonized watch. First, the movement is ultra-thin at 2.7mm. Because the watch has a sapphire front and back, you can see right through the movement clearly. It is amazing being able to appreciate the delicacy and intrigue of a machine that tells the time. The movement itself is the in-house Piaget caliber 838P, manually wound with a 65 hour power reserve. The clustering of the gears at the top of the movement and the location of the main spring barrel is done with aesthetics and function in mind. You are able to see each function of the watch from the beating balance wheel in the rear of the watch to the gear train moving as your wind the watch or it passes the seconds away.
You might be asking yourself what the point of the Nokia Eco Sensor Concept is all about. Don't confuse yourself with thinking that this is just another pointless "do it all device." Far from it, it encapsulates the tools each person will need and come to expect. As mobile phones become a more permanent part of our overall daily "luggage," so are the other functions those devices provide. Even now, people are becoming accustomed to their phones providing e-mail, text messaging, cameras, and Internet navigation. A phone that is just a phone does not cut it anymore. Soon, we will come to except a phone to tell us what the weather is going to be like, what our blood pressure is, and of course we want it to fit on our wrist.
