Rado Integral Jubile watches

This is one of the few times I have seen a watch at auction and thought to myself "damn, I need to be there for that." This is the very ultra cool Seiko Spring Drive Spacewalk watch. There are only six of these watches in the world, and Seiko made them to celebrate Richard Garriot's 'celebutrip' to the ISS (International Space Station) with the Russians. The story is actually kinda sad if you ask me. Richard Garriot became famous as a video game designer. Fame came with the Ultima series of computer RPG games, and most lately, the MMORPG game Tabula Rasa was supposedly interesting, but a flop. Anyone, Garriot become a millionaire and watches so much to go to space. His dad was an astronaut, and he just wanted the same thing for himself. Garriot reportedly spent the bulk of his fortune to get the Russians to take him to space. Lots of training and quasi-gulag living, and he did it. Maybe a bit anti-climactic... but maybe he can eventually turn it into another marketable game franchise.

Inside the watch is a solid Japanese quartz movement. Nothing you'd have to worry about, pretty much ever unless you need to put a battery in it. The watch is big enough that you can rest it on your desk while you work and use it as a clock. Most people (including myself) who type a lot take off their watches while they work). Just don't be one of those people who forget it on your desk (unless you are at home). There really isn't a lot to elaborate on with a very straight forward and easy to live with watch like this JR1060. You know what it does right away, you don't need to think very hard when using it, and the large, but traditional style of the watch goes with just about every outfit that a brown strap would go with. Price is really reasonable as well at 5 - available direct from Jorg Gray, or one of their authorized dealers.

Snyper One Watch Hands-On Hands-On

Andre Checa recently displayed this watch at the Belles Montres ("Beautiful Watches?" Wow... creative name there) expo in France recently. The watch was a piece unique (of course), meaning that only one was made. I wish I had the name for it. I personally would call it "Turd Vert." The case is meant to be a... well rock, and the strap is meant to be covered in "grass," which is actually green-colored mink fur. Nice and animal friendly there. Way to take a nature inspired watch, and effectively make it anti-nature. Some might even call this watch a "crime against nature!" Or at least against good taste. How does Christophe Claret himself feel to have a movement of his inside this eye-sore.

The Swiss ETA Valjoux 7750 movement inside makes the watch 17mm high which makes it feel tall in comparison to the width. The Drei will be a little diving chronograph tower on your wrist. Still, the lugs are properly curved down, so it is not awkward feeling on your wrist. There is also the interesting 20mm wide bracelet. It reminds me of those new Air Race metal with portholes bracelets that Breitling has. These are actually also retro inspired. Probably something that will take a little bit of time to get used to looking at, but pretty cool overall. You can see that the ends of the bracelet still use links (with screw pins), to that you can properly size the bracelet, which uses a butterfly clasp to close.

To be fair, Fortis did not come up with all of the design themselves. You can see some borrowing from brands such as Xemex and Ventura, but you should really not care. The spacey looking asymmetrical case make for just watch the spaceship captain ordered. The the design was actually a collaboration between Fortis and Volkswagen Design. More on the watches in a moment. You know that Fortis has been involved with professional aviation and space exploration watches for a while. Russian cosmonauts have been using Fortis watches, and Fortis recently submitted their MARS 500 Experiment watch as they want to be the watch to go to Mars. Maybe they will be.

I don't think your name or information will need to be used if you are written about, so don't worry about that. To share your stories you can either comment on this post or contact me here. Many of you have had issues with watch companies if you've had to deal with them directly. My position has always been that watch companies are great at making watches, but often poor in other areas. Work like this helps to improve the companies that make the things we love. I am looking forward to hearing from you, and thanks for helping out on this project.

The timepiece design is actually American. The person who designed it is a great designer who I've worked with myself named Russ Schwenkler, you can check out his site right here. Russ has a good eye for watches and other fashionable/functional machines such as cars and motorcycles.

I like the steel version with the metal bracelet the best, but you can get the watch with leather straps (blue or black dials). Prices for those are 0-0 retail, while the limited edition (of 2,50 pieces) version is gold plated and on a crocodile strap, that goes for 5 (not too bad for a limited edition over the standard watches). citizenwatch.com

The watch is also very light. The resin strap connected to the steel and plastic case made it feel as though it were filled with air. The more substantial looking titanium version probably weight a bit more, but not by much. You can see how the case curves one the sides. While the back is flat, these curves help it lay sturdily on one's wrist. Casio Pathfinder watches have always enjoyed an outdoorsy though technical feel. Always a bit ahead of our times, and always very detailed. No simple lines or curves here. Casio has done a good job making sure a watch like this fits well this all things "active." Be it at the gym, on a boat, in a vehicle, on the trail, or walking in an urban area. For the rest of us, the timepiece is a "watch nerd's delight." The major downfall of course is that it is not a formal watch. So keep it with your active and casual outfits.

Luminant all over the watch is a serious of different color tritium gas tubes that Ball utilizes so well. The small tubes glow by themselves for 20 years or so without the need to be charged by light. Ball uses them all over the dial, and in a bevy on inviting colors such as green, blue, and orange. This is one easy to read watch in the dark. Large hands make the dial easy to read. While the dial design is totally functional, it has a certain nerdy tech polish to it that I think will appeal to all men who enjoy using their minds while at work. It is like a thinking man's sport watch. Overall I am really excited about this timepiece. I would guess price to be between about ,000 - ,000 and for it to be released soon.

The dial color could be a dark brown (that matches gold well), black, or any other color. It looks nice being a bit bare. I find the font that Virtual Ideas used for the numerals to be interesting. A technical, almost computer generated font that you'd expect to see on a receipt print out. It makes the counting of time more mathematical, or rather the watch look more like an instrument. The hands are smaller but useful. They might stand for some improvement so as to be more clear . They look to be lume covered, so I hope the numerals on the dial are as well. Virtual Ideas designs concepts such as this show watch companies what they can do. As fresh ideas are often better than a stale design department (many of you out there can attest to that). Whenever I see their designs I wonder to myself what brands the looks best fit with.

This is potentially the newest version of the RGM 300 Professional Diver's watch. The 300 watch important as being American RGM's first diving watch, and most agree that it was well done. It is a sober looking tool watch with cohesive lines, and a thick parts the communicate strength and quality. The original 300 Diver had lots of merit, including different dial options and a cool Blancpain Fifty Fathoms like canvas strap, or a metal bracelet as seen in the images. The watch has an ETA 2892 automatic movement that sits inside of the massively thick stainless steel case that is water resistant to 2,500 feet (750 meters) and is 42.3mm wide. Everything on the watch looks easy to operate including the large crown and easy to grip rotating bezel.

I really do like this watch even if it does have a bit of the Swatch Group stench from it. Let me clarify, the Swatch Group does not stink... but corporate culture when it comes to watch making does. "Make sure this watch doesn't compete with this watch!" "We must consider brand value!" Union Glashutte is a great German brand, but I am afraid that the Swiss overlords are keeping it from its full potential. I mean, you really can't even get the Union Glashutte watches in the US, crazy right? Well this Averin Chronograph is a nifty watch that uses the Valjoux 7751 automatic movement that I have always been a fan of (unless you don't like looking at tiny information windows). a cool watch with a nice style.

This will be my first of several reviews on watches from the Marvin watch brand. In addition to sharing with you these interesting and attractive timepieces, I have an ulterior motive. You see, Marvin watches are not currently sold in the US. There is really no good reason for this, and I am trying to determine whether or not these watches would be in demand here in the States. I for one think that they would have a lot of appeal given their styling, construction quality, and fair prices. So, what do you think? Please comment and share your thoughts.

Case material is all stainless steel and enjoys mostly a high polish finish around the watch. The face of the watch has a sandblasted look that fits nicely with the look of the e-ink display surface. I applaud Phosphor on this clever design point. The watch pushers (one on each side of the case) are integrated right into the case, and don't protrude at all. This gives the case a modern and seamless look. I don't say this lightly when I remark upon the fact that I feel as though Phosphor put more design attention into this case, than do people who sell watches at many times the price. The case is also water resistant to 50 meters, and the watch crystal is mineral glass - that while not as hardy or scratch resistant as sapphire crystal, is totally acceptable at this watch's very good price.

Come to think of it, I don't know of any watches from Rolex themselves that are actual limited editions. Have they ever even done that? To get your limited edition fix with a Rolex, Project X has some attractive unique creations from time to time. Such Project X limited editions watches come in a series of 24 pieces as designed by them. Each model displays a beautifully re-visioned Rolex watch with various levels of modifications. Favorites include adding sapphire caseback, altering colors, engravings, and adding dial text or graphics.  There have only been a few Project X limited edition series so far, and they have all quickly sold out. Look out for more to come in the future.

Don't be afraid to like this watch. I do. I think it looks pretty hot actually. Is that something I typically say about a watch? No, but this isn't a typical looking watch. Are you MAN ENOUGH to wear a white watch? Sure you are. Now granted, a watch like this is not for everyone, or every outfit. Frankly some of you may look outright silly wearing this watch. For other, this is a fantastic addition to your collection. From TX, this is the newest version of their 800 Series Linear Chronograph watch model. This model T3C456TX is in all white, with a steel case and rose gold toned trim. More on that later.
