One aspect of watch-making that has made a huge impact on the luxury watch market during the past three or four years has been the materials used. While many companies have focused on high-tech materials, U-Boat's Italo Fontana has been breaking ground with a more traditional metal: sterling silver. The new Classico 925 series is the perfect example of how the Italian watch manufacturer has taken advantage of the precious metal's unique properties to offer its clients rare and extraordinary versions of their popular models.

Inside the watch is the Tag Heuer Caliber 11 automatic movement that is an ETA automatic with a Dubois-Depraz chronograph module on top of it. You can see the movement lightly decorated through the sapphire caseback of the watch. Placing the crown on the left side of the case work because the automatic winding of the watch makes it so that you don't have to wind the watch. Attached to the watch will be a matching perforated alligator strap. They look quite cool with the dial.

I don't think that the popular Valjoux line of movements will stop being used, in fact I think they will be used quite a bit, but expect to see new Valgranges watches in many of the watches that will be coming out - already a good deal of watches have the Valgranges movements that have been out for a little while. Let's look over the new movements.

The style of the case is a smoother more soft version of what you'd expect to see in the male G-Shock variants - though it is still a rugged look. The bright electric yellow adds a friendliness to the character, while the color is done in a glossy tone. You'll notice that Casio has even made the screen yellow. The digital LCD screen actually is yellow on yellow. It looks very cool, but one draw back is that it is a bit hard to see in certain lighting situations. In those situations you can use the watch's excellent backlight. I recall a few years ago that the backlights used to not be very bright. Since then, Casio has implemented very bright LEDs for the backlighting. So they work quite well actually.

Part of the new trend of Tutima watches is making larger cases which are now around 44mm wide. This Grand Classic Chronograph is 43.5mm wide and 15.8mm tall. The case is beautifully retro and constructed well. The high quality steel case is brushed with the bezel being polished and some other polish on the the crown and pusher tips. The case feels very solid and put together well - not to mention highly functional in character. You can see how the caseback features a nice exhibition window with the Tutima "T" applied on the sapphire glass underneath. The rear of the watch also has the Tutima 80th anniversary engraving on the back of the watch. This occurred in 2007 (Tutima started in 1927), but is still on this 2009 model. Powering the watch is an automatic ETA Valjoux 7750 movement. The seconds subdial has been taken out to give it a bicompax look, but retains the 12 hour chronograph functionality. It looks quite nice with the large chronograph subsidiary dials in the contrasting colors - don't you think?

The watch itself comes in a mini customizable Louis Vuitton leather trunk, which is kinda cute. It ought to for the 5,000 asking price of this highly exclusive and customizable new luxury watch from Louis Vuitton. The watch also takes about a year to make. Complex watches take this long, and since the watch is customizable, you'll want to make it your own. Better put your order in now.

While there have been a few new releases from Eterna this year, the company has been relatively quiet. I did happen to notice this fine new release based on their re-issue of the classic KonTiki model. There have actually been a great deal of KonTiki watches over the years, but the versions with the four triangles are the purest in form. The recently re-released the KonTiki had a centralized date dial with an indicator hand, this new model has an internal date disc with a covertly placed date window between 4 and 5 o’clock. I must admit that it does improve the look of the watch — as the date window is functional, but not obtrusive. It further allows for greater appreciation of the dial and basic theme of the watch. The watch was designed as a sport watch back in the 1950s (I believe). Funny how what was informal then, almost looks formal now. Though the black and orange faced version is still quite sporty looking and certainly has the best personality of the two in my opinion. Really spectacular.

One thing that is interesting is that Rolex apparently hates these watches. I've been told that if you have a modified Rolex watch, never send it to Rolex for servicing (they might not exactly send it back the same - and with a "restoration" bill). Chew on that. Not such a big deal though as Rolex movements are famously easy to work with. I sometimes ask watch makers their favorite movements to  repair or work on, and "Rolex" is often the answer.

The dial of the watch is a handsome element including three Arabic numeral hours with the rest being lume covered indicators. All of the hour markers are applied to the dial. The watch is highly legible. This orange dial version has a small issue due to the red tip of the seconds hand that makes it "disappear" a bit against the orange background, but it is not a huge deal, and not an issue on the other dial colors. The dial is aided by a diagonally placed chapter ring with a matching orange color that helps make the dial look deeper and more satisfying.

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.

ETA Valgranges Movements - Solution For The Big Watch Watch Industry News

The more I wear the watch, the more it impresses me. The best way to judge a watch design is by wearing it on and off in the midst of wearing other watches. That way you get a sense of comparison and you can appreciate that one watch makes you feel better than other. If only this technique was socially acceptable to do with women, but I digress. The 3-Timer watch isn't for every occasion, but it satisfies in most of them. I return to the concept that it is good for both sport and a suit. A concept that many watches aspire to, but many fail to achieve. Price for the line is in the 4,000 - 4,800 euro range for the non-gold versions. Prices go up to about 18,000 euros for full 18k gold models. This brown dialed version comes in a limited edition of just 22 pieces, so it is closer that 4,800 euro price.
