Mondaine Railway Sport Chrono II Ref. A690.30338.11SBM Watch Review Wrist Time Reviews

The dial on these watches is thematically taken from U-Boat Flightdeck watches. I placed an image of one for you to see what I mean. Jorg Gray doesn't copy it, but rather places their own touches to the overall look. The dial design is crisp and straight forward. You see hands and fonts taken from U-Boat, which means the smaller subsidiary hands are squared off, while the hour and minute hands are large and easy to read. The chronograph subdials are recessed a bit, while the date window edges are tastefully sloped in that is an important touch. As for the date window, I would have maybe preferred that the date disc be black, but it being white makes it stand out a bit more. Meaning that from a style perspective black would have been better, but it would make it hard to find the date on the dial as your eyes would be left searching for it.

The pursuit continued of life in the house of troubled luxury brand has a method. Bulgari has recently announced news that should be considered uncommon at the least. In a strange move that I would have never predicted, the Bulgari brand actually eats two other brands that it already owns. The result will be a unified brand in image and manufacture, such that each watch coming from the super brand will have the name "Bvlgari" (Bulgari" as I care to say it) on each watch that is released. A hint in the form of an image depicts a potential result of this "new way" where Bvlgari is seen as the originator, presenting a Gerald Genta timepiece.

Longiness Dolce Vita

The different is the use of two discs that have white and black (or other color) gradients on them. The point as which they connect is when the hand pointer is located. Has the time passed you get to enjoy a different look of the face - which is one of the major themes that Zoega watch going for. Although the watch does in fact look quite different, it really tells them time in the way you are used to.

There is not a lot of banding on the case. Printed on the crystal is a little three hexagon shaped logo that also serves as the 12 o'clock indicator. The style of the dial is thematically like the Movado Museum Face watch, but I like the Pi Watch style better. On the rear of the case you see that it is designed by Ben McCarthy. He did a very good dial job with the dial. Maintaining that it is stylish, but also readable. The dial itself is a solid piece of brushed steel. But instead of being totally bare, it has little folds at each hour mark. The idea is that reflected light will make each little fold highly visible making it easy to read the time. The system works, and even in very low light you can clearly see the different angles for each hour. Hands are round tipped little black rods with holes in the ends of the hands - for added style. The little holes also help your eyes see where the hands are meant to end. Given the simplicity of the dial and the overall modernist presentation of the watch, it works quite well in terms of telling the time (and looking hip).

While it is hard to categories the Kazimon Drei watch, it is easy to simple say that it is a nicely unique timepiece. With 100 meters of water resistance, it is good enough for most activities aside from deep diving. I imagine that the addition of screw down chronograph pushers would easily make this a bona fide dive chronograph watch. Best of all is the very reasonable price, that is actually lower than what I would have guess (usually it is the other way around with watch companies). Price is just ,790 when it is available soon.

Orient Mako CEM65001M Automatic Diver Watch Review Wrist Time Reviews

A thick and wide leather strap is massive at 27mm wide - matching other leather wrist wear with ease (especially for the biker bunch who loves black leather). The buckle is signed with the Dexter Sinister logo. The Hex has character - a lot of it. There is an unrefined wild streak that is almost defined by the red devil's trident chronograph seconds hand (normal second hand on the three-hand automatic model). The chronograph model has a Japanese Miyota  movement with a 60 minute timer, subsidiary seconds hand, as well as a synchronized 24 hour hand (useful for 24 hour time reference and as an AM/PM indicator). Subdials contrast for a good look that aids with legibility - this is one of the best elements of the dial design. Hour markers are luminant filled, while there is a strip of luminant on the hands as well, for easy night viewing. The chronograph Hex watches are available with a  gray or black toned dial.

The reasons I like the DWATCH (no model names right now, just DWATCH) are all due to its no nonsense approach. While the timepiece has a great - almost retro look about it, the tool  is for use, not just for show. Materials and design are all highly functional - and you can tell this just by looking at the watch. The pride you feel when wearing it is mostly due to the fact that you have a well engineered little machine on your wrist - not just some lifestyle-esque fashion accessory. Better still, is that DWATCH is all about customization. Visit the DWATCH website and you can navigate through customizing your own watch choosing dial colors, hands, bezel options, straps, etc... The options feel meaningful, and you can really make something "your own." I opted for a classic look with a high contrasting dial. Though it was tempting to consider an orange or blue dial.

As you know, Phosphor is the leading e-ink screen watch maker with very useful and stylish timepieces available. The specific watch you'll be entering to win is the Digital Hour Clock Black on the leather strap with a retail value of 5. Visit the giveaways sponsor Phosphor watches right here to learn more about this and other e-ink watches. Good luck!

I really do like this watch even if it does have a bit of the Swatch Group stench from it. Let me clarify, the Swatch Group does not stink... but corporate culture when it comes to watch making does. "Make sure this watch doesn't compete with this watch!" "We must consider brand value!" Union Glashutte is a great German brand, but I am afraid that the Swiss overlords are keeping it from its full potential. I mean, you really can't even get the Union Glashutte watches in the US, crazy right? Well this Averin Chronograph is a nifty watch that uses the Valjoux 7751 automatic movement that I have always been a fan of (unless you don't like looking at tiny information windows). a cool watch with a nice style.

Last month you were able to enter for a chance to win a free Swatch Automatic Chrono watch from aBlogtoRead.com. The winner has received the Swatch watch and has been enjoying it, and has sent me a few shots of the watch as a follow up. Congrats to Andrew D. winning the new Swatch watch and I am glad that he enjoyed it. The timepiece is really making a bit splash with a well priced automatic chronograph Swiss movement and fun styling. Don't forget to enter for this month's aBlogtoRead.com Giveaway for a chance to get a free US made Orbita watch winder.

Rolex Day Date II watches

This was another handsome and classic style watch with some cool functions thanks to a unique TX quartz movement. This is part of TX's 400 series and is the Perpetual Weekly Calendar ref. T3C301. This has the same bracelet as the World Time watch above that I said was well done. Here you can just get a better look at it. So this watch does something pretty cool. The little orange hand does two things. It points to the day of the week and the date - at the same time. It is able to do this because the lower date disc actually follows the hand as it moves across the retrograde day of the week indicator. If you push the pusher at 2 o'clock the orange hand moves around the dial to point to the correct month. If you look closely you can see the months spelled out around the dial. The sloped chapter right has class looking hour markers which are covered in SuperLumiNova. The dial is textured nicely for a classic look. You can see that the hands are in a rose gold tone as well as the bezel and crown. The rest of the watch is in polished or brushed steel. Being 44mm wide this is a not to small conservative watch with cool tech that will appeal to many people I think. A great give for a more mature guy who isn't into "wild" watches and does not want to spend too much. This TX Perpetual Weekly Calendar watch retails at 5. This was really a particularly nice watch.

In the last few years the Seiko Spring Drive movements have been holding my attention and passion. I’ve finally been able to handle them and can report that they are even more desirable than I had previously thought. Such a total enthusiastic display will be for another article though. Instead, the point of this article is to further testify that Seiko is a luxury watch brand. Let me clarify. Seiko does have a large number (100 plus at any given time) of mainstream watches. These all have Seiko Japanese made movements, and are of the most popular watches in the world. This however is not the total face of Seiko. In Japan, Seiko has a number of other brands. The most notable being Grand Seiko, which are a line of successful luxury Japanese watches. Impressive on the outside, and very much so on the inside. Then you have the high luxury Credor brand as well as others such as Phoenix, and Galante. These are not sold much out of Japan, and are very hard to get if you are not in Japan. This is a shame, because many of these watches are incredible.

The other complication the watch has is what is know as "seconde morte" or "dead seconds" in English. Basically creates a seconds indicator that moves in steps from one second to another just like a quartz watch has a ticking seconds hand. We know most mechanical watches to have sweeping seconds hands, but this is the one exception. It is actually true that having a dead seconds dial makes certain types of timing more accurate - but really here it is just a novelty that F.P. Journe enjoyed throwing in. You can see more of it working in the video.

Panerai Luminor watches

Ezteem is a new Swedish watchmaker (from 2005) and the model I review here (Lynx Aqua) is their current offering for divers and desk-divers alike. I was intrigued by the brand since I haven't handled a lot of Swedish watches before and Sweden is known for great design. So I expected a lot from them.

The watch is also very light. The resin strap connected to the steel and plastic case made it feel as though it were filled with air. The more substantial looking titanium version probably weight a bit more, but not by much. You can see how the case curves one the sides. While the back is flat, these curves help it lay sturdily on one's wrist. Casio Pathfinder watches have always enjoyed an outdoorsy though technical feel. Always a bit ahead of our times, and always very detailed. No simple lines or curves here. Casio has done a good job making sure a watch like this fits well this all things "active." Be it at the gym, on a boat, in a vehicle, on the trail, or walking in an urban area. For the rest of us, the timepiece is a "watch nerd's delight." The major downfall of course is that it is not a formal watch. So keep it with your active and casual outfits.
