You'll recall that the Freaks are crownless watches. You rotate a ring about the caseback of the watch to adjust the time, while the bezel is rotated to wind the watch. Cool right? The movement contains a high-tech silicium escapement (seen in blue), as well as a silicium hair spring. Ulysse Nardin was/is a big innovator, as it was the first brand to use silicium parts. Laughed at, at first, brands like Breguet and Patek Philippe now commonly use silicium in their movements. The movement here is very accurate according to Ulysse Nardin, and has a long 8 days of power reserve.

The long-awaited new steel version of the new generation of Rolex Submariner watches is here. The official name is the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Submariner Date. This is not a surprise release from the brand for 2010. However, the introduction of a standard green dial is something I didn't expect. Like clockwork, over the last few years Rolex has been updating their GMT Master II collection and then a white gold new Submariner. Last year, they released a new two-tone (steel and gold) Submariner watch with a blue or a black dial. It was only logical that this year would see the release of a new all steel Submariner, ref. 116610. This is most important because the steel versions are the most popular - given their position as having the lowest cost version of one of the most popular timepieces on the planet (if not the most popular luxury watch on the planet).
For me, the watch style, quality, proportions, and brand pedigree are a good combo. I feel bad for over looking this watch line for so long. I knew it was a nice watch when I put on the metal bracelet and it fit so nicely and was so well-made. I just love well-made metal bracelets. It is a cool watch for people that don't always want to be thought of as "cool." When not active looking it appears highly respectable. "Respectable." being a term I would generally apply to most all Girard Perregaux watches. You might not like the style of them all, but at least they afford a head nod. One of this nice watches with the dark blue dial is available on James List (the watch is also available with an off-white dial). Price there on James List is just over ,000 for this Girard Perregaux Classic Laureato Evo 3 Large Date watch.
With 2011 and the watch fairs almost upon us, I thought that URWERK must have an intriguing watch up their sleeve. I wasn’t disappointed. Felix had a box sitting on the table when I arrived. What a tease! I had to wait to finish lunch before he revealed the mechanism hiding within.
For Panerai collectors the PAM339 will feel like a good investment. It looks really cool, is done in a cool material, has an in-house made movement, and is a limited edition (of 1,000 1,500 pieces). Though the watch does cost about ,000. If the budget is up your alley, and you want a fresh feeling Panerai with a classic look - this should make for an excellent choice.
As I said in the past, I will repeat myself in saying that Seiko was wise in releasing the Ananta watches to the world market for at least two reasons. First is that the watches are of the first Japanese watches for the world market that have a true sense of traditional Japanese aesthetic to them. A big part of this is in the connection to the famous katana, and the clever design around that theme. Second is that Seiko is finally offering to the world its fantastic higher-end watches. As of right now Japan still gets the highest-end Seiko stuff to itself, but that is slowly going to change I believe. With Ananta, the global market is starting to get a taste of the quality and level of performance that Seiko can offer, and Europe is likely cringing at the new tough competition when it comes to design, movement engineering, and of course price. The real hard part is educating consumers on how good these watches actually are. Experiences in certain retail locations such as Macy's where the average client is not an educated watch lover is that people are put off by the high price of the watches. This is only an issue because people don't understand who Seiko is targeting with the quality and features of these watches - as it is Swiss brands priced ,000 and up, as opposed to Seiko's traditional market competition such as Citizen, Tissot, Hamilton, and others. So if you are a fan of the Ananta and other high-end Seiko watches, do others a favor and share with them what these watches are all about.
To get really involved in the festivity and pageantry of the day, I go to the 2010 MotoGP race at Laguna Seca to see what the fuss was all about. Who are these fans, what goes on here, and how much is Tissot really a part of it. The reason this is a good question, is because countless brands will sponsor events in name only. They have no real involvement with the culture or practice of the event. Tissot is a bit part of MotoGP, and if you ask MotoGP fans what watch is associated with the event - they will likely glance at their wrists and tell you. Plus, MotoGP fans seem to be serious watch lovers - I spotted a number of good looking sport watches among the mechanically minded crowd.
Recon 5 is strapped with nice brown padded leather strap that's super comfy on wrist. Lugs are 22mm which is a nice substantial size for a watch of this size (44mm with out the crown). All in all this watch is proportioned nicely, it has substantial size with out being huge or uncomfortable.
As a nice reminder of these above three watch lines, the 165 Years - Homage to F.A. Lange Collection watches are going to be a collectors favorite. Use of the decoration on the dial matched with the new type of gold tone is a nice play on the limited edition. They should be out now, priced... high.
In addition to selling watches to the public via Westime, John is a distributor. The idea is simple, but John proves this end of the business to be the most complex — though likely his favorite. Distribution involves investing in a brand and representing them in a particular market. By becoming a distributor, John will control the brand in the US, as well as other markets depending on the deal. Anyone who wants to sell the brand must go through John. It is a fantastic way to slash and burn the competition when it comes to hot brands. You could say that John got lucky with Richard Mille — a hot new ultra-luxury sport watch brand. With few watches that retail under ,000 you’d think the market for such timepieces is small. The success of the brand is soaring and John likely picked up the rights from the start. Sometimes referred to as “the nose,” John has the legendary reputation for picking out viable newcomers and making them big. Of course I asked what the takes into consideration when gambling with new brands. His answer is simple — the watchmaker means more than the product. He explains that you can reform a bad product into something great, but even a good design won’t last if the watchmaker is lacking in the qualities necessary for success.
Then again, if you are guy who likes the watch, I can't tell you to abstain from getting it. It is a perfectly interesting piece for a man who likes.. a little pink in his life. "Salmon" color shirt anyone? The right man could conceivably pull this watch off - though I'm not advocating that the Rock Candy The Beast watch be part of any dude's specific summer wardrobe. The brazen lady is probably the best contender to pull of thus punchy timepiece - and for her, this is a very unique and cool piece. Inside the watch is a Japanese quartz movement. Price for the Rock Candy The Beast watch is about 0. Not a horrible price for a unique-looking limited edition watch that actually does do fringe fashion well - though on the expensive side if you are just looking for some fun. Not everyone will love the piece, but the right people will immediately connect with the design. I wouldn't have reviewed it if I didn't think it would garner positive attention on the right wrists.
While the pictured version is in brushed steel, there will also be a PVD black version of the Bathys Bomb Timer watch available. The main time dial will be coated entirely in SuperLumiNova, as well as the tip of the seconds hand. The large subsidiary seconds hand is 17mm tall. The overall look of the Bomb Timer is both simple and unique, with a straight forward appeal that requires no explanation. Bathys, as a small independent watch brand, has again designed a good looking watch suitable for mass appeal. Price of the Bomb Timer will be about ,800 when it is available early 2011. I certainly am looking forward to it.
