The two above mentioned watch lines are not their sole offerings, as two other lovely watches from Graham are the Oxford and Chrono Sprint. These immaculately styled watches have what I like to think of as an "old world charm." The art deco styling is subtle, quite conservative actually. You see it most in the square bezel and Arabic numeral "12" and "6." The Chrono Sprint version has a small subsidiary seconds dial. Here the art deco influence is a bit more pronounced with its instrument panel type look.
The Piaget Protocole watch is a very thin watch and inside is a manually wound Piaget in-house caliber 830P movement. Thus, these are world's thinner than the Polo Tourbillon Relatif watches. From a design standpoint, the paintings are well done being hand painted on such a small surface. There looks to be some texturing done making the whole surface look almost coin-like. While the landscapes are not true to life, they do bring out some of the more notable features of each city. Paris is made to look nice and scenic, and the Eiffel Tower stands out. New York is almost as well done, but there is the Statute of Liberty with an oddly thin looking face, and what looks to be New Jersey factories complete with smog pollution in the background. Maybe more true to life that I thought!
There is not much I can say about the Temption CGK203 that I have not said before. You can read everything I have written about the watch line here. In summation, it is an extremely flexible watch with a hardy and complication rich ETA automatic Valjoux 7751 movement. Based on the popular Valjoux 7750, this movement displays: time, day, date, month, moonphase, synchronized 24 hour hand, and has a 12 hour chronograph. There is really nothing to be disappointed about in my humble opinion.
Casio watches are very popular in the US, and the world for that matter. They have a reputation for making rugged, reliable, and very affordable watches. This is all based in fact. Casio doesn't actually spent the type of money on advertising that some of its rivals such as Citizen and Seiko spend.
Well, tidal watches have been around for a while, but the Lodown from Nixon is a particularly good one. It had 15 years of tidal information pre-programmed for 200 cities. The watches also have a full calendar, dual times, alarm stopwatch, countdown timer, and of course light. The best part is that all of these features, literally are accessible at "a glance." The sizable LCD screen features a daily tide chart where you are. You can easily tell what the day's tides are going to be like, and what the best time to hit the waves are. For novice surfers, that is usually at low tide, unless they are a particularly strong swimmer.

De Bethune DBS Digital: A Calendar Watch For The New Year
Information for the sensors is obtained through the back of the watch. There are some slits in the caseback that allow air and pressure to enter. Still, recall that I mentioned this watch is fully water resistant to 100 meters. Other watches such as Sunnto or Casio (that offer watches with similar functions) often place the sensors on the side of their watches. Tissot has each of these watches beat when it comes to user enjoyment as well as watch style. Operating any of these functions has the hands of the watch magically come to life and either point to the function you are using, or actually help. For instance, in compass mode, the hands of the watch form a compass need pointing to North, while the LCD panel reads out the degrees. This little aspect of the Tissot T-Touch line never gets old, and you’ll find yourself fiddling with it when you are bored. The people behind the ETA E48.351 movement (both ETA and Tissot are part of the Swatch Group) that powers the Tissot T-Touch Expert have really created something special. There are two major complaints people have behind the movement. Well, they are more wishes than complaints. Fans want to see a solar powered movement (though that would affect how nice the watch dial is, as that is where light would need to come in), and people have wished to have an atomic clock controlled Tissot T-Touch. I don’t know if either of these are really necessary. My take is that they would be nice, but only if Tissot was able to incorporate them and keep the Tissot T-Touch the beautiful watch that it is. In fact, I know of just one European watch maker that features atomic clock controlled watches (known battery hogs), that being Junghans (and the watches aren’t nearly as awesome looking as the T-Touch Expert). The majority of the atomic clock controlled watches out there are Japanese and simply fall into a different category than the Tissot T-Touch Expert watches.
While the replica will not have the same features as the "real" Pip-Boy 3000, such as a Geiger counter, and information about the terrain, your special abilities, or enemy weakness, it will have a functioning clock at the very least. You can tell how it opens up to allow it to fit over your wrist, and then snaps back into place. This is easily the best part, because you can actually wear the Pip-Boy 3000. This is going to be my daily watch for, probably a few years at least. Whether I am in a meeting at the office, or out on a date, I can be assured that people will notice my personal Pip-Boy 3000 and sigh with envy. "That guy is styling and prepared exiting the vault and existing in a post-nuclear war destroyed and barely rebuilt society, with mutants." All I really need now is a watch fit for a zombie invasion, and I am set!
The watch face is what is most important here. They literally combine the classic aviator watch look with diving watches. Though I can't really be sure where the double sided seconds hand came from. These always look cool, but they are probably just a bit distracting. The style of the numerals (especially the hours on the inside with a smaller concentric ring) is all aviator watch. The hour hand follows this arc and is also an aviator style hours hand. The minutes hand could go either way, and while it doesn't mesh perfectly with the look of the hours hand, it still looks appropriate to me. Even though there is some heavy use of text and images on the watch dial, it is still pretty legible, so that is good.
You know what I want to know? That a watch works, and well. That thought was put into the design. That it is reliable and will not need to be fixed much. Tell me what it does, and the accessories that come with it. That is it. So leave the puffery, hyperbole, and litany to a minimum.

Welcome To A Pinnacle Of Taste And Technology. May I Please Present You With: The Dogs Playing Poker Gold Watch
Many say that it cannot be done - a 1000 meter water resistant diver's watch with an internal rotating bezel. Why? Well, it has to do with the crown that rotates the internal bezel. Unlike the crown for setting the time than can be tightly screwed into ensure high water resistance, the crown for adjusting the internal bezel needs to be functional, even deep under water. Part of this dilemma is purely academic, because people can't even dive that deep and live. So you could theoretically have a crown for the internal bezel that does ensure water resistance to say 300 meters, and then would need to be screwed down beyond that. LUM-TEC isn't interested in such trivialities. It wants to make a 1000m diver watch with an internal rotating bezel. I can't wait to see how they attack the challenge.
This here is a really cool watch that blends watch making prowess, a jeweler's practicality, and manly looks. Ulysse Nardin never likes 'just' releasing luxury watches. There always needs to be some special twist that makes them special. Your first hint at this fact is in the name of this watch; "Macho." Looking at it, you sort of have to agree. The oval face and aggressive hands are rather macho. There is something defiant in the look of this watch, although you can't seem to place your finger on it. What you are looking at is inflated proportions that create a fantasy like watch that is finely detailed and perfectly practical.

Aside from the watch, there is the unit that serves as both the watch winder and clock. This structure is beautifully crafted, and you can really see where the steampunk influence comes into place. Exposed gears, both decorative and functional reveal themselves among a series of gauges and knobs. The Trilogie can be either plugged in or connected to a power source via USB. It is really a mix of electronics and mechanics. The clock is part of Erwin Sattler's Nautis series and is a regulator just like the wrist watch. Funny enough, the Nautis clock is not that much larger than the wrist watch, put probably enough to to be useful. Again, this is going to be mostly a super ultra showpiece.
