Linde Werdelin Oktopus II Double Date Watch Watch Releases

In essence, this Casio Edifice EQWT720DC-1A watch has a few key features. It has the time, full calendar (date, and day of the week are displayed on the dial), daily alarm, 1/100 of a second chronograph, and world time function. In addition to that, the movement is light powered, synchronizes with each of the six atomic clock radio signals around the world and has a Casio "Tough Movement" which offers the ability for the hands to be re-positioned automatically if they are misaligned due to a shock to the case. That is a lot of technology and features. Ideally, you don't need to learn how to use most of them. If you do, then I highly suggest carrying the manual around with you. Perhaps that isn't necessary if this is your daily wearer, but for a guy like me who has a lot of watches in rotation, I will never recall how to use all the functions. Even setting the time is a complex dance of moving hands and button wrangling.

Inside of the watches is Graham's G1733 automatic movement. This is probably a caliber from Dubois-Depraz. It has a big-date indicator, 30 minute chronograph, and a super-sized GMT hand. I actually like the big ol' GMT hand the more I look at it. More and more these days I like GMT chronograph watches as I find them useful for travel. Though I tend to prefer those with full 12 hour registers. Gee, even the "GMT" label on the dial is massive.

While the iPhone 5 might resemble the shape of a candy bar, it employs a series of graceful curves and rounded edges. The mastery of the design was in combing the technical look of a sophisticated modern gadget with an item that does not clash with the organic look of the human body. Use of organic curves in products meant to be held and seen on one's person is an extremely effective way to help something feel warmer and less alien. It is difficult to find harsh edges on the iPhone, and it does not look or feel unnatural when in one's palm. Likewise, high-end watches have employed the same design concept for years - creating wearable tools that do not disrupt the natural rhythmic curves of our organic bodies.

Rolex Daydate Replica Exhibition

Versions of the DiaLOG will include at least Arabic and Roman numeral versions. Both are quite clever and cool looking, with complexity hidden within simplicity. The case of the watches are steel and 41.6mm wide. They wear larger due to the wide lugs and thin bezel. The case has a sapphire crystal and is water resistant to 50 meters. Attached to the case is a pretty nice custom hand-made leather strap. I've reviewed watches such as the Itay Noy X-Ray (here) and really like how this case and concept feels on the wrist. It really emits a sense of "independent" and "boutique" in a good way. Each of the Itay Noy DiaLOG watches will be limited to just 99 pieces each and will be priced at ,640. When they are available you can get them in the US online at the Itay Noy authorized dealer Bareti.

Miles or MPH to Kilometers or KPH conversions:

  • The goal: Calculate a distance or speed in Kilometers where the distance or speed is known in Miles.
  • A Kilometer is roughly 0.621 of a mile.
  • Set the outer ring's "6.21" over the inner ring index ("1").
  • Find "2" (for 200) on the outer ring.
  • The inner ring shows "3.22" which is 322 kilometers.

In addition, what sets this bezel apart is the feel when turning it.  The resistance is measured and the fluted marks make it easy to grip.  It's simply a joy to use and I look forward to changing it to check different times, even when I usually leave it to show EST time...

Brown Chronos Safe: Secure Watch Home Luxury Items

Please welcome Mr. İlker Özcan who will collaborate with aBlogtoRead.com on a few articles discussing materials and processes used in watch cases and other components. Ozcan is a professional Materials Engineer and owns a small R&D company (www.ndsgn.com) - and he loves mechanical watches and loves the exotic materials used in those watches. The purpose of this article series is to enlighten watch lovers about many aspects of watch materials so that everyone can make more educated decisions about the watches they are buying. Now on to Mr. Ozcan:

Use of small round-cut stones can lead to a lot of sparkle, but can also create a blurry effect as details become hard to see. For example, look at the center of the Breguet Reine de Naples watch. It uses all round-cut stones and looks like a super shiny diamond soup. Use of square or rectangular-cut baguette diamonds is often a better choice when wanting to retain or create shapes. Most of these watches are professionally done and designed coming from the world's most respected brands. They certainly don't mess around when creating such full pave timepieces. Even the Franck Muller watch with its closely set stones uses baguette cut pieces upon close inspection.

Coated in black rubber, the David Yurman Shelby 1000 watch will be limited to 150 pieces and be priced at ,600. The steel version that is not limited to a specific production amount (will likely be make for a year or so before production ends), will be priced at ,200. Seems like a rather large price gap between the two right? The watches are very cool and look for availability in November 2012.
