Customized Omega Speedmaster Snoopy Schumacher

Few details are known about the watches themselves, but they are in steel or rose gold plated steel in cases that are likely 42-4mm wide. The dial designs are based upon the theme of being for the snake skin enthusiast. Some will be offended by the reptilian leather straps, while others will drool over the Python leather adorning the watch. Look closely at the face of the watch and you’ll see that the dial is textured with what looks like a cross between scales and bricks. The patterns are actually done through guilloche machine engraving. Notice the Budweiser-like crown at the top of the dial and as the counterweight on the chronograph seconds hand. Nice and American element right there — because cowboy’s love their low quality domestic brews. Can you imagine a French cowboy drinking some frothy Bordeaux out of a chilled pint mug? Delicious and refreshing!

Thanks John for the sentiments and thoughts - he blogs occasionally on watches here at Watch Space.

What was available as a limited edition of only 250 pieces, the IWC Portuguese Chrono Automatic Jackie Chan edition (Ref.371433) was originally released in 2006, but some are still available. Most of the watch is everything you know and love about the Portuguese Chronograph collection, but with some special colors, and the caseback engraving. The case of the watch is in full 18k red gold with an ardoise dial. The movement is the IWC caliber 79350 automatic chronograph mechanical movement. The two tone appearance of the dial is very handsome, with the Portuguese watches being of the most legible luxury watches around. The applied gold Arabic numerals on the dial are very handsome. Matching well with the red gold case and brown dial is a brown alligator strap.

The Goldvish Revolution phone itself is nothing special aside from having a ridiculous amount of diamonds and gold on it. If your eyes can stand the sparkle, the phone is a decently shaped device probably worth 0 or so. Then you have all the precious gems and gold which just add commodity weight without much engineering prowess. For about ,000 you get an unlocked GSM phone that will make a hell of a desk clock in a few years. The Revolution phone model FJ-ACE-001 will be available as a limited edition of just 9.

The 3-Timer collection wouldn't be what it is without the hemispherical pattern engraving on the dial that almost looks like the top of a globe. Intentional for a GMT watch? Probably. Inside the watch is the regarded ETA 2893-A2 automatic movement that is the workhorse behind many high-end GMT watches. The GMT (24 hour) hand can be set to be synchronized with the main time to show 24 hour time, or can be independently adjusted to indicate another timezone. Turning the 24 hour bezel in conjunction with the 24 hour hand will give you a third timezone indication.

And just like women today, Hello Kitty is very versatile. Take this sporty white Hello Kitty Model above.

The 585XLTMXB and 585XLTMXM watches are traditional two-hand (no seconds) watches with full titanium cases and bracelets. The faces are totally minimalistic with just the hour indicators and thin hands used for quick reference by the wearer, not everyone around him. I like how the crystal shape integrates with the bracelet design, something you don't see everyday. The watch case is thin at only 8mm, and the case is 38mm wide. A quartz movement powers the watches, and Skagen is nice enough to provide a lifetime movement warranty. They can easily do this as problems with the movements are very rare (and they don't cost that much anyway).

A watch will carry you to next phase in your life, and reflect a person's personality better than any other accoutrement. Based on their tastes and style, gifting someone with a watch is one of the most lasting, thoughtful gifts to give.

What is really nice about this version of the new Formula 1 is the clean but attractive face that is very pleasing to look at and use. See the image of another new for 2009 Tag Heuer Formula 1 watch, the Grande Date Chronograph. This watch just feels so cluttered and contradictory to the point of this timepiece. Sure it looks cool, but I wouldn't want to live with it each day. The Formula 1 Grande Date has a large subsidiary seconds dial with an integrated big date. It is hard to see the big date in the images (how ironic), but it is at the 6 o'clock position. The hands on the face are totally new for the watch line, and I think I like them. The best part of the dial are the raised hour numerals and indexes. They have a rich amount of Superluminova so that they will glow. This of course is on the black faced model. The white faced model is basically all lume, with the numerals and markers being in black.

And as we're all motivated by cost comparisons, the watches are listed within pricing groups, for your convenience.

People associate professional instruments with IWC watches. The Aquatimer series was always for the serious enthusiast. The new line has models that almost look cartoony in some angles, and the sheer range of colors available seems to miss the point of why people chose IWC Aquatimer watches over competitor offerings. Looking at the large hands, and bight yellows, oranges, blues, and other colors, I kept thinking to myself where I had seen this before. All over Japanese dive watches of course. These looks are usually typified by watches in a much lower range, not the price points at which IWC prides itself (,000 plus).  I can't say what type of success IWC will have with the new watches, and it is possible they will be a strong commercial success. Further, this commentary isn't solely in regard to the marketing images. You can see this in the video and other images of the watches. Decide for yourself the resulting looks of the new line.

So, let's take the obvious. Moon. Flower. Can you see them both? Together? Not at first... but, like those allusions, this watch offers so much more.

There are also the redone metal bracelets. Still in titanium I believe, but plenty of steel versions as well. The Aquatimers used to have a very unique bracelet, and these new watch bracelets have a look that is much more mainstream. Did customers complain? Were the old bracelets no good? When I think about getting an IWC watch, I want something that stands out. For a few hundred bucks you can get a diving watch that has at least 70% of the looks of this new Aquatimer line. In my opinion, it should not be that way. Overall, I like most of what the new Aquatimer line has to offer, but I keep questioning if it is enough? Think about it, these are basically very high quality versions of a less mature look. Though perhaps during depressed economic times, IWC is simply turning to bright colors to heighten people's days.

While I'm not a fan of the collection name Contessa, which elicits images of pink tulle and doilies, I do see the direction in which Eterna wanted to head. Obviously targeting strong, independent women, Contessa also stirs images of countesses and regal women of yore. Today, though, Contessa by Eterna is for strong women, with the tight rectangular face, and for pragmatic women, with the multiple straps and dial faces.
