Rolex Daytona

The 46mm wide case (by 17mm thick) is done in Staybrite 1.4435 NCu steel that is higher quality than 316L stainless steel used on most steel watches. Rolex Sea Dweller watches watches (especially the Deep Sea) use Staybrite steel as well. It might be the same formulation. Why is it over 316L? Because this type of steel has a special resistance to the corrosive and discoloring effects of salt water - which is nasty stuff. Just live on a coast and see what water does to thing that are exposed to it for long enough. Caseback of the watch is not screwed down, but instead has a thick sapphire crystal as the caseback which is specially sealed using a unique gasket. It is not user removable, but needs to be taken into be opened up.  Angular Momentum says this style of caseback offers superior water resistant security than a screw down caseback. Plus the caseback will remain water resistant after other types of casebacks on diver watches need maintenance to ensure resistant to water seeping in. The crystal comes in different colors (all lume actually so they glow brightly), or it can be ordered to be transparent for a view into the automatic Swiss movement.

Rolex Explorer II

The winner of the watch was Dennis K. from New Jersey. He was chosen truly at random. I gave each entrant a number and then used this random number generator that picks a number between two values (1 - 100 for example). Between the three choices Dennis chose the Dievas Zeta Pro Phantom, which has the all black dial (as opposed to red or yellow). The Professional watches all have black PVD  applied to them, and each Dievas Zeta watch is an automatic. It is a good look as you can see. Here are some thoughts from the winner about the watch:

Reading the chronograph is pretty easy as well because Mondaine kept the chronograph used hands all red, while the time hands are all black. The seconds for the watch is at the subsidiary dial at 3 o'clock. You know how most Mondaine watches to have a seconds hand with a large red tip? Here they sort of did the opposite with the chronograph seconds hand. They moved the red orb that would normally be the tip to the end of the hand making it the counterweight. This makes more sense, and I like how they kept the "spirit" of the original Swiss Railways watch in this timepiece. Another "improvement" over other Mondaine watches is the addition of tritium gas tubes in the hour and minute hand. These tubes light up in the dark with out needing to be "charged" with light. Mondaine is sort of connected to Luminox, which prides themselves on basically always using tritium gas tubes. Having the gas tubes in the hands adds another layer of smart functionality to the watch that is very nice to have. While it would have been interesting to have each of the hour markers use tritium gas tubes as well (as there is clearly space) it is not a detriment that they are simple applied black markers.

This first watch proves that white watches are cool. It is one of the 800 Series TX Linear Chronograph watches - so named for the vertical chronograph minutes indicator. There is also a retrograde dial that serves as a second timezone and the overall design of the dial is unique and edgy. The white tones persist through the watch (obviously), but don't define it 100%. You still get some sporty orange and rose gold tones on the dial and hands. It is really nicely done. I like the white on white rotating bezel with high relief numerals. The watch is admirably sized at probably 45mm wide or so and was very comfy on my wrist. You might find the dial a bit intimidating at first but it is quite easy to live with after you get the hang of the look. A really nice white colored watch that I would easily sport often. This watch was really new so I could not find the exact model number, but it should be prices somewhere between about 0 - 0.

I like to post about these milestones -they feel important to me. I've written over 1000 aBlogtoRead.com articles. And I must remind myself that I also regularly write for a few other sites such as Luxist.com, AskMen.com, and more (see all my current work on the About page here). So the total watch articles I have written since starting in late 2007, is over 2000. But aBlogtoRead.com being my own place, I think 1000 here is still pretty impressive. I wonder if I put it all in a single book, how many pages it would be? I think we are talking more than War & Peace here. In this time of reflection I feel as though I have only scratched the surface of my passion for watches and entrance into the watch industry. Last month at exclusive invite-only SIHH in Geneva, I felt as though the occasion was my symbolic "true entrance" into the watch industry.

While the layout of the site is not great - not bad, but could use some tweaking - it's also progressive to see them featuring e-commerce already on this new line. It's a smart way for a brand to be accessible, but still exert control over their own brand and pricing strategy. And with their retail prices fluctuating between 0-0, it's definitely a line that will be appeal to - and be attainable - to many more brand loyalists.

Select Mondaine Watches From JCK That I Liked Feature Articles

Linde Werdelin specifically wanted to tone down the dial of the watch line for the 3-Timer. It wanted to give it a more formal look that you could wear with a suit and tie, and not just your spy gear. Thus, you'll see that the hour markers and hands are all a bit more subdued. Still, they are applied and covered with SuperLumiNova for night viewing. The result is not quite as bright as the Linde Werdelin 2- Timer watch that I previously reviewed here, but like I said, has a more elegant charm to it. You'll also notice the fantastic looking dial pattern that the 3-Timer line has. Linde Werdelin takes a series of concentric circles and cuts them up like too many slices of pizza for a look that reminds me of how a large maps is divided for longitude and latitude. The pattern is cut deep into the dial and makes for a good texturing. The "global" look of the dial is also good as it is a GMT watch, so travelers are going to want one of these.

Like most Chinese watch makers, Longio started out as an OEM watch maker (and still is one). This means that they are an "original equipment manufacturer" for other watch brands. Essentially, they make all or part of the watch, while someone else puts their name on it. Longio eventually decided that they want to put their own name on watch. One thing that is most striking about Longio watches is that they are original. The Chinese are known for copying things that others have made. The design of this watch is totally original though. We begin to see character and design that is innately regional to Hong Kong and the surrounding areas. It took Japan a long time before the watches they made had a Japanese character to them. China however is able to learn these lessons observing them from afar, and are already making watches that suit them, not just others.

In addition to the special features each watch will have, there will be a number of different materials used in the watch including at least some metal, plastic (ideally on a marginal amount), nylon, and rubber. Hopefully enough metal to make them feel a bit bulky (a good thing). There will be different sizes for the watches as well. The pictured Boba Fett watch looks pretty tall, and comes in a 44mm wide case with a 22mm wide strap. Alternatively, the two different Storm Troopers watches will be 48mm wide and come with a 24mm wide strap - big and totally bitchin'.

GoS fits most of their watches on mesh metal bracelets which seen to compliment the look pretty well. The exposed movement is nice, but other than the fantastic rotor, there does not seem to be much decoration. They should have placed a bit more on there. The dial attempts to look simple with only four hour markers, but I would have preferred all 12 of them. The hour markers are done in gold dial with diamonds. Not in the Dragon, but in other GoS watch models, you'll find another diamond used as a cabochon at the end of the crown.

I was asked to give my opinion on how watch companies can best make sense of, and utilize iPhone applications by the IC-Agency over in Europe, that spends a lot of time trying to figure out how luxury brands should utilize the Internet. I do the same for watch companies so I was happy to think about the salient issue. You may have noticed that over the past few months, it seems as though every major watch maker is releasing iPhone applications that are mostly free to download. These are marketing tools for them, and the question for them is why and how to do it, and the pay-off for you (the consumer or user of the applications), is having useful and fun watch applications for your iPhone or other mobile phone devices.

Cartier Oops With New Les Must Collection Ad?

This is a watch that I could really see myself wanting - even though it has a carbon fiber dial that I tend to not always enjoy (though I did like it on my Tissot T-Touch Expert). Yes, this has been a month of many Omega watches, but they have had some interesting releases so they merit the attention. This is probably my favorite. I've often looked at the classic Omega Speedmaster Professional Moon Watch and thought, "yes it is cool, but I'd really like a modern version." Yes, it is true that my sentiment defeats the point of the "Moon Watch heritage," but I didn't really want to have a manually wound watch with a Hesalite (plastic) crystal to deal with. My collection might very well include a Moon Watch in the future, but it would be for historic kicks, not cause I'd want to wear it each day. Omega has released a ton of Speedmaster watches over the years with sapphire crystals and automatic movements, but this new Solar Impulse watch just really catches my eye.
