The Omega Speedmaster X-33
As I walked upstairs that day I was immediately greeted by Pierre. I am not at the point where I can afford a DeWitt watch (in fact I might never be at that point), but that didn't stop them from treating me like a valued client. My enthusiasm for talking about watches was enough, and for that I was genuinely touched. My typical experience with high end watch dealers consists of them briefly acknowledging me, and faster still dismissing me as a non-sale for the observable future. That day was different, and I wanted to make the most of it.
From an aesthetic standpoint, the face of the watch breaks no new ground. The screen appears to be an OLED (organic light emitting diode) screen, which utilizes its own light generation (based on the photo luminescent organic compounds) to save battery power. Everything will be small on the watch face, but that is given considering the surface area. It would have been smart for Tag Heuer, or any other maker of watch phones, to utilize the surface area of the watch bracelet/band for data input (placing buttons there). Other than the setting pushers around the face, the watch fucntional areas are "Time, MP3, Alarm, and Phone." You can be assured that the Tag Heuer phone will accomplish each of these tasks in at least a mediocre fashion.
Star Wars lore seems to indicate that some who are strong in the force can see into the future to an extent. Does this mean they inherently know what time it is? Darth Vader does not wear a watch, though his suit might tell him what time it is. This very cool Darth Vader costume is on sale right now on Buy.com (pictured, click to go to product page). The costume is not cheap as far as Halloween costumes go, but it is high quality, and suitable for many occasions whether you are scaring little kids or participating in a fan event. You get the cape, jump suit, helmet, and rugged injection molded armor pieces. All I think you need to provide are black shoes and a light saber. After seeing this costume, I thought to myself, what watches would go well with this outfit?
The Eterna KonTiki Diver was to be one of the first new Eterna watches to be officially sold in the US again. The wait was long. Years overdue, literally. We all sat and drooled over the pictures of the unique looking diver watch from Eterna that somehow appeared perfectly designed. I recall thinking to myself, "that watch has everything I think I would want in a diver watch." The legible face, subtle futuristic and confident looks, power reserve, rotating bezel, and sturdy case and construction!
The colors of these watches pretty much ensure that will only find a place on female wrists, though you never know what you'll find a man wearing in Miami, and perhaps Brazil. Actually these watches are sized for female hands, so know that gentlemen. The art however should be equally appealing to both sexes, and I applaud TechnoMarine for adding a bit of welcome pop culture to their line of attractive but frequently conservatively styled watches (though not all of their watches).
