Photo Report Of An Omega Speedmaster GTG in Holland

You can tell that the Robusto Buceador has an internal rotating bezel that is operated via one of the two crowns. This system usually works nicely enough, and is attractively integrated into the dial design. The dial itself has very broad SuperLumiNova rich hands, as well as a very interesting design for the hour markers (more luminant there). I think the watch is a good combo of simple classic design, and modern appeal in the dial.

CASE:

Inside the Cruise Sport watches are Japanese Miyota quartz movements. Cheaper than Swiss movements, and arguably as reliable. The movements help the watches remain at prices that are highly competitive with the competition. Using Swiss movements would have made the collection less attractive in terms of price. The Cruise Sport Chrono movement (Miyota FS20) has the time (without seconds indicator), a 60 minute chronograph, the date, and a synchronized 24 hour scale (useful for AM/PM indication, as well as reading military time). Not having a ticking seconds hands sort of allows you to forget that it is a quartz based watch. The piece features large chronograph pushers that are curved, and relatively easy to operate. My unit has hands that align nicely with the indicators - so I appreciate that a lot.

Is the Royal Oak Offshore the official watch for the l'Hydroptere relationship? Hardly, it is just their latest marine themed watch. I have confirmation that Audemars Piguet will not only release a l'Hydroptere limited edition watch, but it will be a very special one. As a bit of trivia aside, according to the team members who sail the ship, their dream features for a watch while sailing are that it should: be very light, have the time, a chronograph, a countdown timer, a tide chart, and a barometer with a history/log function. All easy to see at a glance. So someone get working on that. Maybe Audemars Piguet is as well!

Price for these watches is likely a couple thousand dollars. Not too much more than that I am sure. For that price they are indeed a splurge for most of the people in my mind that will like them here in the US, but not something that is so expensive you just scoff and shake your head. Any understanding of the Swiss watch market will rather easily justify these prices. While the RSW Outland 3H isn't a watch revolution, it is a fresh look, with a mind for a market that largely ignores watches but shouldn't. How to capture 'generation .com' isn't clear, but doing so with cheeky watches that look like what your uncle wore back in 1979 isn't necessarily the best way of going about it. At the same time, the Outland 3H is nifty watch novelty that should speak nicely to enough people. Look for it soon.

My opportunity to view the MB&F Frog watch was preliminary, so I don't have all the details such as the price, though you will find tech specs from MB&F below. The HM3 Frog will be in a limited edition (like all MB&F watches), and will have initial inventory likely available in and around Singapore where MB&F watches are highly prized. Availability starts this month (May 2010). MB&F considers it a "wacky" version of the HM3, and 32 collectors I am sure will be delighted. Again, 20 pieces in polished titanium, and 12 pieces in black titanium.

I hope someone who writes for Raymond Weil got a bonus for that gem of a quote. There is nothing wrong with the sand-blasted titanium watch, but lets not get all operatic here. This is no watch to sing about. Though you could buy one and play some Verdi music during a video recorded "un-boxing" session. That would be dramatic enough.

The video where you can see the watches has a pretty ridiculous sound track. I mean I get that the watches are important to them, but there is a fine line between self-promotion and self-important. So just ignore the "biblical" tone of the music. No pricing information has been released yet, but I will try to update the post when it is.

What will amaze you about the watch is the straight forward, simple presentation of the information and the complication. While not an easy watch to make, F.P. Journe makes it seem easy by having it all work so well, and smoothly. The watch features the time in a digital display, with jumping hours and jumping minutes. Mechanical digital watches are proving to be quite popular, and the mechanism is usually governed by a constant force escapement that makes sure the power from the mainspring barrel is used properly. The movement itself is the in-house made and designed F.P. Journe Calibre 1509, and is really gorgeous. Aside from jumping minutes and hours, it has a power reserve indicator for the manually wound movement, and a traditional subsidiary seconds dial. Like I mentioned in the previous article on the Vagabondage II watch, it most resembles the A. Lange & Sohne Zeitwerk in terms of functionality (that was released around the same time). Though the two watches are visually very different.

So let's chat about what the watch does. The default view of the dial (see above) has a centrally mounted seconds hand and retrograde minute hands. The hours are told via the upper subsidiary dial. This is a variation on the regulator style dial, but with a retrograde hand. The lower part of the dial is a date indicator. Good luck reading that one. Over the date dial is a transparent bridge made out of synthetic sapphire. When you get bored of this, you can transform the watch into chronograph mode.

Scuderia Ferrari One Watch By Cabestan Watch Releases

A few years ago the Louis Chevrolet watch company sprouted up in Switzerland. GM was pretty irked about this and the use of the Chevrolet name by the watch company and some legal matters ensued. In the end GM backed down - realizing there was no point fighting a small Swiss watch maker that could only help the automotive brand, not hurt it. As such Louis Chevrolet makes about 1000 watches a year with plans on making up to 5000 a year. Prices for the watches aren't too bad at between about 00 - 00 a piece. You can see some images of the brand's watches that I snapped here in the article. Some of their watches have a really cool dark blue PVD coating that is really neat.

Speaking of big metal cars, the U-Boat U 1001 is a whopping 55mm wide in titanium. The metal case is cut very well, and the titanium has a very smooth bead-blasted feel to it. All over the case are branding details and information about the watch. Read the back and the sides of the watch to learn just about everything you'd like to know about it. The U 1001 name refers to the fact that it is water resistant to 1001 meters. Basically it is the same as a 1000 meter diving watch, but they decided to add another meter to the title. Watches are usually tested a bit beyond their stated water resistance, so adding that extra meter doesn't mean anything from a technical standpoint - all part of the built -in depth rating wiggle room. The watch is also limited to 1001 pieces (333 or so pieces of each color), and is available with a variety of colors trims for the dial. Here you have a lovely blue for the hand and some of the hour indicator. While the chic looking dial design, complete with the name of the watch is hip looking, it is pretty a-functional for diving purposes - given that this is a diving themed watches. U-Boat released the U 1001 watch completely devoid of lume, as omission from what have been a great looking watch in the dark.

The result was a roughly 42mm wide steel case with Bremont's Trip-Tick construction and coated in black DLC (diamond like carbon). Case is water resistant to 100 meters. The movement of the watch is actually suspended in a shock absorbing material (see the red areas in one of the movement images below). Trip-Tick is where Bremont uses, 1) a hardened steel bezel and sapphire crystal, 2) a central body (barrel) section of the case done in either titanium or a PVD coated steel section (in that cool grated texture), and 3) and steel caseback - often with a sapphire crystal exhibition window. In the case of the Bremont U-2, everything is in steel - save for the inner barrel that is in anodized aluminum - and coated in DLC - a material coating that is very hard with amazing scratch resistance.

Currently, authorized retailers all over the world are having their status as authorized dealers stripped from them. Brands are finding any little reason to do so, or are simply pulling the cord on the relationship. All of this is in preparation for an onslaught of brand boutiques (first in major markets and cities), and of course for online brand sales. Does this mean that every authorized dealer or independent watch retailer will go extinct? No. They will still be helpful as many of them have excellent customer relationships and placement. But they will be much less common. Also, smaller independent brands that don't have the resources for such ambitious plans as the major companies will find new welcoming doors at retailers that traditionally would have shunned them.
