OMEGA Speedmaster A.C.P Ref.105.012 | Fratellowatches

Speedmaster CK2998-3 FAP (Fuerza Aerea del Peru) | Fratellowatches

Dials:
Silvered

I want you to consider something that I recently realized. Ever notice how lots of "new" brands focus on the "heritage" they bought from a long dead watch brand, or alternatively from some long dead watch maker? These brands use their own designers to emulate what was well known in the bast piggy-backing on that success. It is a good model. But the "new" brand is only as good as the current designers and the rest is just marketing. Then you have Maitres du Temps that does not try to create some fallacy of resurrecting a old brand. Instead, they rely on living legends who actually contribute to the watches. So the difference is that Maitres du Temps actually has watches designed by watch making masters rather than just having a brand or watch models named after them. It is an interesting point that I didn't consider in the past.

Not sure if the watch will arrive in a white dial version, but it may. As you can see you can also get the watch on a rubber strap. Prices are higher than the Grande Date, but still acceptable given the look and brand. At The Watch Gallery, prices are 1,195 British pounds for the steel bracelet version. Less of the rubber bracelet. Not sure about what US prices are going to be like - but a nice looker that will first a home on many happy wrists.

Bear Grylls Sticks With Casio: Wears G-Shock In Current Man Vs. Wild Season Watch Releases

As the watch case is so large, the bracelet needs to support it on your wrist and be comfortable. It connects tightly at the curved lugs with a screw bar and gently tapers a bit as you get closer to the fold-over double locking deployment clasp (also in titanium). Literally all bars are screw bars. Only think that it doesn't have is a diver's extension, but I am not sure that it needs one in this case. Swiss Military supplies two natural rubber diving straps with the watch in addition to the titanium bracelet. Why two? Because they come in two sizes. One that is made to go around your wrist, and another that is longer and meant to go around a diving suit. I am pleased that the watch comes with these. Still, this chunky watch is just begging to be paired with its companion metal bracelet when not on serious diving duty.

If there was ever a watch that defined a brand it is the Khaki line for Hamilton. They have actually imparted the "Khaki" name on scores of watches, but the Field Khaki is the basic original military watch that started the trend. A popular watch for decades the original models were tiny by today's comparisons often being 33mm wide. Those are smaller than most women's watches today. The New Hamilton Khaki Field Automatic will be available in two (reasonable) sizes at 40mm and 44mm wide. I would love to wear the 44mm wide version in this classic style. The watches also get a lot of upgrades. These include the sapphire crystals, applied hour markers and Swiss automatic ETA 2824-2 movements. This first line has a gun metal colored black PVD steel case - but I have a feeling that future models will adopt the original sandblasted steel look of the original models.

The Shabaka watch starts with a specially made Christophe Claret Calibre CLA88QPRM manually-wound movement. Complications are plentiful including a perpetual calendar three cylinder displays. The dial shows the time, day, date, month, leap year, and moon phase. This might be the first appearance of the cylinder style information window. This has been used on several watches since, most notably for the top and bottom displays on the Maitres du Temps Chapter One and Two watch. The Chapter One movement is also made by Christophe Claret. In addition to all this dial information, the Jean Dunand Shabaka is also a minute repeater. You can see the lever on the left side of the case. There is also a power reserve indicator, but you'll have to look at the rear of the watch for that information (power reserve is open mainspring barrel with indicator bar). The movement is extremely complex, which is easy to tell by viewing the case back. I mean the thing has 721 parts. An incredible amount of pieces to shove into the 44mm wide x 17.65mm thick case. The movement plate itself is 29.5mm wide. The watch is not exactly a sport timepiece so you want to treat it well (you'll be convinced of that if you are among the select few who can afford to acquire the watch). It has 30 meters of water resistance - meaning you can basically wash your hands with the watch.

Magnus Walker 911 And His Omega Speedmaster

Compared to many other watches out there Cartier watches are simple, but the devil is in the polish and the details. The refined designs are flattering to the wearer and function well as timepieces. The smooth sides of the square Santos are enhanced by screws on the rubber coated black bezel and on the segmented rubber strap. Contrasting finishes of polish and brushed finished adorn the surfaces of the case. The dial is angular and sharp in its lines, while the case itself has softer curves to it. A utilitarian feel comes from the bolt style crown - finished off with a jewelry style black jewel cabochon in it.

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.

I love the dauphine hands on the dial. They are highly polished and faceted with lume in the center. The large hands are the proper size for the dial, and really complete the look. Plus, their high polish stands out making the watch quite legible. I suspect that the dial design is not something the Europeans would have made. It is a purely Asian style design, and I like that. Part of having a well-rounded watch collection is having items from all types of watches makers, coming from all types of cultures. This is the art side of watch making.

Omega Speedmaster Perpetual Calendar

The quality of the case is very good for this price level. Solidly made, good surfacing, and a finish that you'll be proud of (sorry about any finger prints on it in the pics). You also have the black PVD version as well that gives you the all dark look and a different styled. If you are concerned about size, the PVD version appears smaller due to it all being black. The dial of the watch is the Lumzilla's best asset. You get the upgraded LUM-TEC GX MDV lume, as well as large numerals and hour markers and easy to read hands. I needed to live with the dial for a bit to really measure it up. At first I though the hands were too small, but they really aren't. The watch is bold looking but easy to read - a tough combination of traits. Many people ask me about lume quality. I can say that it is very good. With some charging, the lume stays bright and the application of the lume over the dial makes the entire face easy to read. The seconds hand is perhaps too small. It easily gets lost in the face. Black on black with just a red tip. If you like having a seconds hand, you might find yourself searching for it. However, I think that LUM-TEC did this on purpose. It was trying to give the face a more simple look, but still give you the benefit of having a seconds hand. Which means that it is sort of like a phantom seconds hand. Not too visible unless you are purposefully looking for it.

See for example this gold Chopard L.U.C Slim. Sure it is a very pretty watch, but the price is probably over ,000. It looks great, but is it "THAT" great? Not sure. The Noramis will set you back about 1,380 euros retail (maybe ,500 bucks in more places). Inside the watch you get a Union caliber 25892A2 (which is really just a Swiss ETA 2829) automatic movement. Realize that the Chopard is manually wound. The Noramis is just 11mm thick, and the case is 40mm wide which is enough given the thin bezel.The crystal of course is sapphire and the case is water resistant to 30 meters.

The view of the movement is beautiful - really. I mean look at all those parts. Almost gives me my faith back in humanity. We can accomplish amazing things! Just look at this watch. Some people will undoubtedly refer to the Arena Metasonic watch as ugly and so excessive that a buyer should be stoned. It is most certainly an unorthodox watch, but from an unorthodox brand. Not everyone is going to be taken by the style or design, but it is a watch that does not make any real mistakes, and is amazing for what it is (in my humble opinion). Even the strap material is strange - which is ostrich by the way. By the way, I should mention something about the watch case. It is quite a gizmo. The case is electronic and lots of moving parts. It starts with a fingerprint scanner. Place your finger on it, hope for the best, and then see the top opening to the sound of gears while a pedestal rises out of the case with lights around it (fog machine optional), having the watch sitting on the top there to greet you. Horus watches (another brand) also has a case like this (not sure if it has a fingerprint reader though).
