One For The Road: The IWC Replica in an AMG Roadster

Handmade Steampunk Wearable Art: New Item From Olga Narozhna Watch Style Talented clock and steampunk artist Olga Narozhna has a new item for auction on her eBay store. She does a wonderful job of combining steampunk elements with modern style and function. Her art is all hand made, save for the watch itself that is taken apart and tastefully integrated into her work. Here you have a natural leather cuff made from several pieces of quality leather, with rivets for structure and display. Attached is a skeletonized watch movement and a number of gears and interesting mechanical elements. Not only do these pieces look very steampunk cool, but they are also comfortable unique works of art. No two are the same, and because all production is by hand, only a few are made.

Magnifier lenses are not without their drawbacks. Many people do not like them for two reasons. First, is that they tend to attract scratches and blemishes. Being raised up from the otherwise flat crystal, the lens bump simply had more opportunity to rub against things. Second, lots of people simply do not like them from an aesthetic point of view. It is true that the magnifier lens can detract from the symmetry of a watch, and look odd while looking at the watch's side profile.

Trendy Ocean7 G-2 Diver Chronograph Watch With Carbon Fiber Face Available Watch Releases I've got to hand it to Ocean7 for doing it right. What right you ask? Well starting a watch company and successfully selling watches online. While selling online directly to the consumer while taking fan feedback into consideration is not a novel concept, it is in the watch world, and that is exactly what Ocean7 Watch Company has done. They took bold, American designs, polished them with fan feedback, used Swiss movements, and then sold them directly to the public online. No middlemen, no complex distribution, mostly organic marketing. That is future of the niche and boutique watch industry, and thankfully, Ocean7 is not alone in pursuing this direction.

Functions - Hours, minutes, seconds on part of the tourbillon, hours and minutes flyback chronograph, power reserve, trust index

The next step is that I am going to attempt to have arieladams.com redirect to ablogtoread.com

Have A Watch Design Idea? Need Watch Design Consulting? Virtual Ideas Design Studio Can Help Feature Articles Have A Watch Design Idea? Need Watch Design Consulting? Virtual Ideas Design Studio Can Help Feature Articles Does this mean that your average watch lover with a few good ideas should contact them? Probably not unless you are willing to invest in what is likely to be a highly limited "vanity watch" production. Likely to be super expensive. However, if you are a designer who wants to release a watch or watch line, or a watch company looking to boost your design prowess, then Virtual Ideas is a place to call.

Forget using the chronograph with the inhibited visibility that the cage provides. Or even really being able to view the tourbillon. The only purpose of the tourbillon is interesting to look at. Now, even that limited benefit of having a super expensive movement is degraded by security beams bolted to the front of the Zenith Mega Port Royal Tourbillon. Even the large amount of spacial real estate on 40x57mm case doesn't do too much to help with being able to see the hands underneath.

Artist Profile: The Imagery Of Time With Olga Narozhna Watch Style “The working class hated artists and creative types.” Olga had to wait until her daughters grew up before she felt safe enough to share her art. Displaying her art in the popular Adreevski district gave her the reassurance to further develop her craft and show the world its artifacts and memories she felt was forgotten. Her art is also about stopping time. Using the past artifacts today, she shows how time is relative and in the same instance it is a constant.

A retrograde watch is one that has a hand that moves along a liner arc. Once it reaches the end of that arc, it simply jumps back to the beginning position. This is as opposed to traditional cyclical nature of watch hands. Retrograde hands are often used to emulate gauge meters, but can serve a very good purpose when it comes to legibility. Being a new twist on analog time telling, a double retrograde would have two such retrograde hands. According the Pierre DeRoche double retrograde have one hand for the hours and another for the minutes. It maintains a traditional cyclical subsidiary dial for the seconds.

Here we have a Citizen Campanola Perpetual Calendar with the tonneau-shaped case. The tonneau shape is common among high luxury watches for the presence it makes along with the surface area within the case to house extra complications. Looking inside the face of this watch you see a dazzling array of dials and hands, each perfectly polished. I have mentioned in other articles and the review of the Citizen Campanola Grand Complication that I own, the level of quality and craftsmanship that goes into the production of each Campanola watch. Each is handmade, and uses the finest watch parts available. Read the full review of the Citizen Campanola Grand Complication to learn more.

Tax Season Sale From Marcello C. Watches: 10-15% Off New Marcello C. Watches From The Source Sales & Auctions Funny enough, there was another Marcello C. watch sale I posted about recently. Just after mentioning how rare such sales are, another one pops up, and straight from the US distributor; Marcelloc-watches.com. In the month of April, you can get 10% off any single watch, and 15% off two or more watches! That is a good deal. This means that the high quality Marcello C. Nettuno 3 would only be about 0 with a 10% discount.

Functions - Hours, minutes, seconds on part of the tourbillon, hours and minutes flyback chronograph, power reserve, trust index

Looking at the Velatura Diver you see familiar features, such as the 12 hour chronograph and rotating bezel. Seiko has added some friendly legibility accents such as the different colors on the dial. The case is a combination of steel, carbon fiber, and urethane. The sum of the parts is a handsome looking, if not avant garde dive watch that appears instantly capable.

Novel Omega Olympics Speedmaster Watch Is Charming: Five Counters And Classically Styled

Citizen Campanolas are a line of watches, actually. This is just one example, and there are several more. They represent the highest level of product that Japanese watch maker Citizen is able to produce. Unlike other Citizen watches, these are each completely hand made. This means that they are assembled by hand, and that many of the components are made by hand as well. Not all the models in the Citizen Campanola line appeal to me as this watch does, but they all combine time telling with interesting calendar functions.

See the auction page on eBay for more details. Price is great, at ,600-,700. Retail goes for about a thousands dollars more than that. It comes in the really nice stained black wooden box that Temption is also known for. I've never been let down by Temption watches, especially from a style perspective. The goal of these watches is to excel in function, and they do so admirably. You have to agree that this is a nice looking, minimalist inspired, showy watch. A nice, and as you can tell here, non-paradoxical dichotomy.
