Each painting is on a sapphire crystal which is also the watch dial. On top of the hands, another sapphire crystal is applied. The steel watch cases are 42mm wide and inside the watches is an automatic movement. This collection features a traditionally laid out three-hand watch dial, while other Eglomisé painted watches by Angular Momentum feature their hour disc system. These watches also have diamond settings on the bezel and lugs, but also come without such decoration I am sure. I like the added spectacle of the jewels though. The style of painting yields a very clear image that will not fade, and is so very detailed. The artists responsible for the work are experienced masters indeed.

They have a sense of humor too, which is good. Their domain name takes the "DOD" acronym from "Deal Of the Day" and wants to be your "doddy" (daddy) of watch deal portals. All they need now is an RSS feed (maybe they have one, it wasn't clear) and I am hooked. Still, you can follow them on Twitter if you don't want to revisit the site each day. Oh, and the Girard Perregaux Cat's Eye Joaillerie watch that is part of their banner. Yea, don't expect that to be part of any watch deal of the day website's daily offer. "We have one available for the excellent price of 0,000 - 21 hours and 4 minutes left!"

I  chose the particular hands for the watch that I did, because they are large, and because the hour hand is in a different shape than the minute hand - which assists with quick reading of the time (your brain doesn't need to spend as much time calculating which hand does what). I am glad that the hands are the proper size as well. The seconds hand sweeps nicely and has a lume covered section as well. You could have likely predicted that I enjoy the date window. Why? Not only do I like the symmetrical placement of the case in the lower middle of the dial, but also because DWATCH knew to use a matching color date disc - to compliment the dial. Also, I like how the date window is framed. The manner in which the date window was implemented retains that function (which I like to have), and also preserves the clean look of the dial. Thus, as the design of the dial might look obvious, I suspect there was a lot of tweaking that needed to be done - and as a lover of finely engineering items, I appreciate that in anything I own.

Guer Man Trace Watch Is Wild And Woodsy Watch Releases Guer Man Trace Watch Is Wild And Woodsy Watch Releases
Not too much is currently known about the Guer Man Trace watch or the company. Their website isn't even up and running yet. The watch was apparently design as a collaboration between an artist and engineer. Pretty standard story, but the result is always better when the two types collaborate versus going it alone. The watch employs a lot of gold as well as other natural materials. The bezel and dial look to be some type of stone.  Plus, around the sides of the watch are many little columns, also appearing to be made of stone, and are reportedly hand made. The case of the watch is in rose gold, and nothing I can write about its shape will be better than simply looking at it. While the case is totally round, the case is oblong and makes for an interesting look. The who design reminds me of what a Sarpaneva watch would be if they took a totally different direction. You can love or leave the face of the watch. It is interesting and pleasant in a quiet sort of way. It makes me think of what the inside of fancy banks look like with the marble stone and applied gold markers. You might see this as being a wall clock applied directly on to stone in a bank building right?

The Japanese Lacquer models also have five versions. The two pictured ones have rich variety of mocha browns and other tones common in traditional Japanese art work. Van Cleef & Arpels used five works from master artist Hakose San. Each faithfully re-visioned for use on a watch dial. These models also have 42mm wide platinum cases and contain automatic Caliber 800P movements. Each of the watches in the Midnight Extraordinary series aren't the easiest to read in terms of the time, but these are really art watches, meant to show off the dials and display the time in more of a secondary way. I'll try to get more images of these obvious beauties soon.

Don't get too excited about this watch unless you have some mucho petty cash and want to battle for one of the 50 pieces in this limited edition (25 in either of two materials). While not as sexy in function as most Urwerk watches with their rotating satellites, this new UR-CC1 King Cobra takes an older concept and makes it new again with "linear time." The dial(s) of the watch show three pieces of information - the hours, minutes, and seconds. Flip the watch over and you see a more naked version of the hours and minutes laid out like two computer program progress gauges. "4 o'clock is currently at 73%" You get the idea. Much of the inspiration behind the Urwerk CC1 watch was another linear time watch design from 1958 that was made as a prototype fo Patek Philippe. Not sure if that watch ever got made. It was a novel concept at the time - and honestly by today's standards is pretty ugly - even though it is in gold. See the image of it that Urwerk handed out. For over 10 years now Urwerk has been playing with the idea of doing a linear time watch. After three years of development the UR CC1 movement was done, and the result is pretty cool. The whole concept of linear time is pretty simple, must mastering it from a technical and visual perspective in a mechanical watch is a pain.

For those of you who have never been interested in a Swiss Mondaine watch, this Railway Sport Chrono II watch might change your mind. The best way to know the watch is by the reference number which is A690.30338.11SBM, but that is no fun to say. So I will stick with Sport Chrono II. Let's survey the features of this watch first and notice a correction below that I misstated in the review video.

The watch case is large at about 48-49mm wide. There is also a women's version at 39mm wide  - also not as thick as you'd think at 15mm. These are showy pieces, so it makes sense why they are bigger watches. Case material options will include steel, titanium or gold (yellow, rose, or white). Another camera style element is the ring around the dial. It is in enamel and meant to look like the ring around a camera lens. Pretty cool if you ask me. The rest of the watch case has some cool designs with those trendy horizontal lines and a robust crown guard. Like most Michael Bittel watches, each Eclipse is customizable to the buyer's specific desires. I will likely get to check these out in January in Geneva when they are officially announced.

Overall I really like this Orbita Futura watch winder. I seriously enjoy the looks of it, and it has a special meaning to me because I used to tinker with electronics a lot as a kid. Thus I can really connect with the design and enjoy seeing the "naked" look of how the watch winder is put together. Plus, being a person that feels comfortable working with computer mother boards, I don't mind going right on the board to look for information and adjust switches. This type of winder is for that specific type of person who enjoys tinkering and taking things apart, as well as understanding how things work. This unit more than most really looks like something that Orbita engineers had fun putting together and probably enjoy themselves.

In fact, I think that these timepieces are pretty cool. Sure they are showy, and have a quasi ridiculous name like "Boss Premiere." It sort of sounds like a fake title that a company owner would put on their business card. "All bow down to the BOSS PREMIERE." Maybe that is what the employees of China's Premiere call him after asking "what is your bidding sir?" For years nice watches have had the power to make you feel important. You can laugh all you want at such "loud and in your face' timepieces, but a good watch can make you feel 'your worth.' Given this fact, there is a huge market for timepieces that "make you feel like a big man," and Avenir Chrono fits in to this broad niche. You can put Breitling in there too. These comments may sound critical of the brand, but they are not. Instead, I am trying to discuss where a watch like this fits in to the horological ecosystem.

I don't know how a watch like this slipped through the cracks. It came out just last summer as a limited edition. This is a very interesting and rare Sinn watch that is thankfully available on James List, and for not that much dough. Many of you know of the super functional and durable Frankfurt, Germany based watch maker Sinn. A few years ago they released one of their most style forward watches ever, the U1. It has a few limited editions including an all black, Sinn U Black (not typo, just "U"). Well this is another limited edition, called the Sinn U1 White (sometimes U1 Snow). It takes the almost opposite approach than that of the all back U Black. The White is a high contrast U1 model that is not only easy to read, but really stands out. White is quite a hot color right now for watches, and the U1 Snow capitalizes on that fact with a white strap and dial. The rest of the watch though is in PVD coated black. Combine the black & white look with the Bauhaus style of the dial hands and numerals you have yourself a winning design, at least in my humble opinion.

Different automatic watches each have different winding requirements. Some need more or less winding, and most watches wind with the rotor moving either clockwise or counter-clockwise. A few watches have rotors that wind in both directions. You can go to Orbita's website for a "Watch Database" that has an impressive list of watches and is updated frequently. You can go there to determine what type of winding your watch needs. Most of the time you can tell for yourself what direction the rotor of your watch winds in, but only if you have an exhibition caseback. Turn the watch in both directions. The direction where the rotor seems to move with a bit more resistance is the direction it needs to spin to wind. There is a lever switch on the Futura that controls the direction of winding. There is also a switch to control the amount of turns per day (TPD). The daily turns are indicated in the left hand LCD display, and starts counting at midnight. It then resets itself. This display is also used for various setting when you need to make adjustments to the unit. The right LCD display is for the time. This is good for a few reasons. Mostly to assist with the TPD counter as well as provide you with a reference to determine how accurate your watch is and to adjust the time if needed. I think that more watch winders should have built in clocks. I like this. Having the unit in my display case gives me a handy clock to go to when I need to adjust watches. The clock can further be set to 12 or 24 hour time.

Just getting the watch to accomplish the goal of being able to survive that ridiculous amount of pressure and force on the case is impressive enough. I would have been happy and excited about the Guinness world record that the watch has alone, if that was all the watch has - but there is so much more to this watch than just having an impressive record. CX didn't stop at just incredible pressure resistance - oh no. In fact, aside from the incredible dimensions and capacity of the 20,000 Feet Diver, it is also one of the best functioning and made watches that I've had the pleasure of reviewing. Everything about it is refined and smooth in execution. From the quality of the watch and bracelet, to the operation of the features on the watch. Plus, the watch is a dedicated tool above everything else. This is really what people expect when they invest in a Swiss watch, and I am really proud to share it with you.
