Style on the Dial with Megan Harris: Time to Borrow from the Boys

Wear Your NBA Team Spirit on Your Sleeve

The watch uses an ETA 2893-2 GMT movement that is commonly used in luxury GMT watches. It has a quick one hour increment adjust feature which is good to have. The all black PVD watch in the standard PVD steel case has comfortable to read white hands and hour indicators, and that hint of orange. You still have the date window, and the overall look is quite choice if you ask me. The watch comes on the functional rubber strap and looks fit for most any duty. Price is somewhere around ,000 I would imagine.

Each watch is in a 42 mm wide steel case, except for the 18k rose gold model below. There are a number of models in the collection, including a two-tone version. Actually, there are versions with the mouth, but without a chronograph complication. Those predictably look a bit less weird. Dark dial, or light dial, Bertolucci has you covered. Even if you want a little diamond action sprinkled in. While these are technically men's models, I would say that the design on some of the diamond versions looks unisex as best - watches like this would fare well on feminine wrists.

This is a working prototype of Bathys' upcoming Bomb Timer watch - and it is very cool. I want to make two things clear from the start. First, as I said, this is a prototype, and will undergo a few changes before production. This includes aspects of the case, dial, and movement finishing. So again, this is a test... this is only a test. Second, the name Bomb Timer (while open to interpretation) has a very specific meaning. You'll see in the images below, a small vintage Hamilton clock that was mounted in cockpits, and other areas of bomber planes. These small clocks were bomb timers, and provided necessary timing information to bomb drop operates to know exactly when to release their payload. Pre computer and GPS bombing was a pain when trying to hit specific targets, especially when in cloudy skies. Thus precising timing instrumentation was required when attempting to hit targets with an accuracy much of the time.

People like Roland Iten are a major reason why I do this. Being able to work with amazingly talented designers, engineers, and inventors is what makes all this interesting. Sure a nicely designed watch or gadget is fun and easy to appreciate, but when that items reaches the level of an "invention" is really gets me stimulated on a higher level.

Longio Tourbillon Watches For 2010 Watch Releases

"Ribbit..." Here is the first derivative watch based on the MB&F Horological Machine # 3 (HM3) (which I wrote about here). While MB&F releases about one brand new watch each year, they also have special models based on their standard collection of Horological Machines. This watch will be known as the MB&F HM3 "The Frog." There are two versions of the watch - one in a darker, PVD black coated titanium with a green toned 22k gold automatic rotor (12 pieces), and a titanum version with a blue 22k gold automatic rotor (20 pieces). That is a total of 32 HM3 Frog watches in total. Both look pretty interesting, with this bug-eyed (I mean amphibian) eyed watch having no analogs in the watch world.

Audemars Piguet's last sailing sponsorship was with the Alinghi, and since then has been eager to get back into the world of performance wind-powered boating. You could tell that AP as a whole loves the genre. In their offices and in the manufacture are posters and models of the Alinghi ship - those will likely be replaced with mini l'Hydroptere's soon enough.

In between the hour indicators is a scale for the 24 hour hand. You could also say that the hour indicators double as 24 hour scale indicators as well. This integration look neat, and ensures that the watch retains a traditional 60 minute diver's bezel as opposed to a  GMT bezel. Such GMT watches with traditional dive bezels aren't that easy to find. The GMT hand is a classic red and white arrow, but I think Essex would have been OK if they made the GMT hand a bit larger in size.

Good looks carry over to the dial as well. American based LUM-TEC now does many of Magrette's dials, using their high-quality MDV GX luminant. In comparison to early Magrette dials, this is something much different. The hour indicators are cut into the dial, and there is lots of luminant applied in them and on the hands. You can see in the lume image how nice and evenly the luminant glows. There is also an embossed face on the dial in black-on-black right over 6 o'clock that is only visible in the right light. In fact, the dials are looking so good, Magrette will need to upgrade its hands. While lume on the hands is just fine, the detailing and quality of the hands themselves is due a bit of an upgrade given how well the rest of the watch looks.

Tribute classic Pilot’s Watches IWC Replica

Tag Heuer did a nice job with the rubber strap giving it deep vertical grooves and some nice branding. You might find the strap cheesy at first, but it looks good on the wrist and is nice to the touch. Really not much else I can say about this piece. Price is 0 for the watch on either the rubber strap or steel bracelet - with the street price being a bit less I am sure. No doubt that many people will be getting one of these when they are out soon.

Chronograph Watches For Those Who Love Detail

The Portuguese Yacht Club watch comes in two steel versions and one in rose gold. The steel versions have a white or slate colored dial, while the rose gold version comes in slate. The little details all over as well as the movement decoration engraving on the crown, and of course the sporty style are things that will appeal to most every fan of IWC Portuguese watch as well as newcomers to the collection. Really a hit for SIHH 2010, I see this as being a new long standing addition to the collection. Maybe they will have one with a metal bracelet in the future. That will be interesting. Price is ,600 in steel and ,100 in rose gold. Available now or really soon.

At about 41.5mm wide, the case, in steel, is a nice size and fits well. I like that most all Storm watches I've ever worn are surprisingly comfortable - even the ones with less than traditional designs. The really unique design element here are the skeletonized sides of the case. Some very high-end mechanical watches have such windows in sapphire crystal to provide views into their mechanical movements, and Storm does it here to see (sort of) the quartz movement inside. It is an interesting and unexpected element that helps the Caspa feel more unique. The watch case is water resistant to 50 meters, and has a mineral crystal. For the price, I am pretty satisfied with the case.

IWC Portofino Replica Watches for sale

The P42 is a nicely designed piece with a good looking case and a stylish design fit for an explorer or man-about-town. The fashionista's adventure watch? Though you know what I am going to say about the dial. Make the hands longer dammit! Why are they so shy? Patton uses a luminant I've never heard of called LUMINO. Yes, it does sound like a silly sounding super here full of bright happy light. How it compares to SuperLumiNova I don't know. There are lots of strap options available, including a metal bracelet (for the Immersion model). I like the carbon fiber strap actually. You can see a full list of the available models and styles (along with prices) here on Patton's website. Price range from about ,100 - ,200 for the Patton P42 Hyperbare and Immersion watches.

Hublot King Power Formula 1 Monza Limited Edition Watch Hands-On Exclusive

Back at Baselworld last month I was really excited about seeing one particular timepiece - the Bremont Supermarine 500. When I first learned about the watch sometime ago, I wrote about the Supermarine 500 here, exclaiming that it was the watch that helped me pay attention to the new British brand. The attractive 500 meter water resistant dive watch with a vintage inspired design based on an old seaplane looked like a must have - but I needed to see it in the flesh.

Tissot has a goal to always be associated with the racing circuit in America. Other brands follow things like Formula One and other types of motor sports that people in the US don't really pay attention to. Tissot has been partnered with NASCAR (click here to read about their Danica Patrick watch), showing that it was quite interested to align itself with racing events that Americans might actually be interested it. In watch world gospel, "to be associated with popular sport, is to enjoy increased sales." In the same spirit, here is the newest version of the Tissot T-Race Nicky Hayden watch for 2010. The latest limited edition piece for the star motorcycle racer.
