Orient CDD00001W Pocket Watch Review Wrist Time Reviews

Mondaine Railway Sport Chrono II Ref. A690.30338.11SBM Watch Review Wrist Time Reviews

An advertisement for the Automatic Chronograph watch from this Grand Ocean line caught my eye. A bit of surfing around found me a dealer in Belgium and a few phone calls later they had the watch on-site to try it on. I immediately liked the distinctive style of the watch. The black case and rubber band give it a sporty look while the gold touches and rounded case provide a certain elegance. It's definitely a unique design that I haven't seen in other watches.

The winner will be able to choose any of the Orient Mako models carried by Island Watch. This includes all metal versions with black, orange, or a blue face - as well as versions with a rubber diver's strap. The blue faced model has two bezel options, one with blue and red in a the "Pepsi bezel" style.

Prices for these modified Rolex watches are reasonable. Certainly much less than the Rolex watches that are new and modified. I figure it is probably best to let a Rolex watch "live a little," and then modify it for round two of its tenure on someone's wrist. Prices for the pictured models range from ,000 - ,500. Highest is the new Milgauss model. Costs involve the value of the original watch on the used market plus the intense amount of work that goes into the modification. Time and Gems is shaping up to be of the most impressive places for modified pre-owned Rolex watches. They of course also have a full collection of original, un-modified Rolex watches at their disposal. Click here to buy or learn more about this new DLC coated Rolex watch collection at Time and Gems. It is important to note that Time and Gems is not associated to, or connected with Rolex in any way (as is the case with all just pre-owned Rolex dealers or modifiers - be it for new or used Rolex watches).

So lets get to this wonderful watch. I say wonderful because I absolutely love it. It goes straight to the center of my watch loving nervous center because it is big, heavy, shiny, functional, and damn manly. Let's face it, a lot of the Orient watches have a serious injection of masculinity - and I for one have no problem with that. The watch itself is a diver watch (duh), but more specifically a saturation diver. That means that it does not need a helium escape (release) valve. The case is so tight, helium does not appreciably affect the internal pressure when resurfacing. This negates the need for the gas escape valve. The watch is rated at being water resistant to 300 meters, but I tell you, I would easily believe it if Orient told me it was resistant to 1000 meters. It has just the type of thick steel case and sapphire crystal that communicates that. The details I get range, but the sapphire crystal is between about 4-5mm thick. The steel case is also supposed to be specially corrosion resistant. Why is this important? Because salt water is a bitch, and will eat through things like acid if they are exposed long enough. For this reason, and watch meant for serious diving should take this into consideration. These are just some of the diver friendly features, but I have to say, this is about all watch you need in a mechanical diving watch for the vast majority of divers out there.

Even though the watch is retro and sporty, it is still a nice watch. And with that comes some requisite polish and shine - which I like. I am going through one of those "check out my watch" phases, and I like a little sparkle. This is a trait that Marvin is good at, and the brand certainly has it down when it comes to presentation. From the packaging, to the advertising, Marvin does a fluid job at making you feel good about getting and owning their products. Still, I need to remind you that the watches aren't available in the US, but they will be soon I predict.

I notice the cute looking panther cub and to it's left Les Must watches with the panther skin pattern on the dial and for the strap. While I realize it is not real panther, I just can't help but think in my mind that the ads says, "hey kitty, you are gonna end up a watch like your bother over there." Animal fur items are pretty discouraged these days, but to place an item with even faux animal fur next to one of the actual animals is a bit sick in my mind. Maybe I am looking way too into this, but literally the first thing I considered when I saw this ad was, "really Cartier - is that the message you want to send?" I mean the panther is cute , really cute - but I don't want to think about it being poached for its fur then "luxurized" into a watch strap. The lower ad at least takes the watch out of the image. I have a feeling all this is Photoshop anyway... but it would be great to think they had a real cub on the photography set.

The complex process of making them black is worth it. Each of these images I took of the watches pretty well indicate how good they look. I met with Project X Designs founder and owner Daniel Bourn recently to discuss the creation and what is involved. It is amazing to me the level of interest they get from high profile individuals. The ability to get a customized Rolex is seemingly a dream for many. What I had before me were a few of the DLC black Rolex watches they make. I spent an awful lot of time inspecting them with detail and was impressive with Daniel's meticulous knowledge of what goes into each watch and the challenges thereof. Anyone who would think to compete with Project X must realize that they are in store for years of trial and error to get things right - assuming that they can even get the right people or equipment to do it.

Looking at the back of the watch you can see the water intake sensor. This is the pressure sensor for the depth meter. You also learn that the watch is suitable for 200 meters of water resistance. This means it is a good diving watch for most, but not all diving. All purpose diving watches are typically 300m water resistant. Again, this is not a big deal especially given the great functionality that the Aqua has for most diving purposes.

Honestly I love the Rolex Daytona collection of watches. I think they could be sized a bit bigger these days and perhaps add a date disc, but then they wouldn't be Daytona watches. Still. I don't feel like a connoisseur because I like the Daytona watches. I like them, and the guy who wears too much gold jewelry who wants to add to his watch collection of Breitling watches likes the watch too. So this article was about two things in the end. First, why everyone and their best friend likes the Rolex Daytona, and two, a bit about why those elements are so easy to enjoy. It isn't about idiots, or the love of shiny, shiny things. Going back to the basics, Rolex has always succeed in following the principle of KISS, or spelled out as "keep it simple stupid." The alternative is a busy watch with too much hidden impressive points that requires a skill level like mine to appreciate, or a three week course at your local "horology appreciation class." And the latter doesn't really exist.

It is hard to predict what will happen in the future, but downloadable content for mobile devices is here to stay, and will only become more popular. This also means that the expectations from them will be higher, and they will have increasing amounts of functionality. Currently, most watch companies are sorely stuck in "Web 1.0." This means that their online presence is a one-dimensional tool for visitors to get some information only, and usually very limited information is available compared to what people want. If the way watch companies operate online now is an indicator of the effectiveness of their iPhone applications, I suggest they hold off making an iPhone application until they have a website that is actually useful for consumers that demand more from a luxury company. Which is also a way of me saying, "stop being so hostile to Internet sales." It makes you look antiquated, and unfriendly.

The Split Rock collection watches are pretty cool and feature as 12 hour chronograph complication all put into one three hand subsidiary dial. Pretty cool right? The pushers are located on the right and left side of the case in a unique fashion. I like how it looks, and it appears pretty easy to use, just don't mistake it for another watch face. The watch itself uses skeletonized orange-red hands and a subsidiary seconds hand at the top. The watch isn't exactly the epitome of easy to read, but this is for style, and you can make out the time. Plus, the orange stitching on the black crocodile strap is always a chic sporty touch.

In fact, I think that these timepieces are pretty cool. Sure they are showy, and have a quasi ridiculous name like "Boss Premiere." It sort of sounds like a fake title that a company owner would put on their business card. "All bow down to the BOSS PREMIERE." Maybe that is what the employees of China's Premiere call him after asking "what is your bidding sir?" For years nice watches have had the power to make you feel important. You can laugh all you want at such "loud and in your face' timepieces, but a good watch can make you feel 'your worth.' Given this fact, there is a huge market for timepieces that "make you feel like a big man," and Avenir Chrono fits in to this broad niche. You can put Breitling in there too. These comments may sound critical of the brand, but they are not. Instead, I am trying to discuss where a watch like this fits in to the horological ecosystem.

I really want one of these Izul watches, badly. Investigating a bit I found that a few models existed and there are actually a few new ones that MAY be available (only in Japan!). Some models feature a unique twisting case that rotating all the way around. This is really weird actually as the watch chronograph is "upside down." So when you twist it around for the chronograph to be right side up, the watch itself is upside down. I am more attracted to the less "interesting," and more beautiful black or white dial version in the non-rotating titanium case. You can tell that it is a bull-head style with the crown and large pushers on the top. The dial layout is extremely functional and easy to read - the same as in the Seiko Spring Drive Spacewalk.

The watch does something interesting that you won't easily be able to decipher just from looking at it. See how the dial has 24 hours and not 12? Well the watch goes slower that your normal watch. Actually half as fast only. The hour hand makes its way once around the dial each 24 hours. Why? Cause this is Breitling's way of having a day/night watch. Making it possible to know if it is day or night, especially important in space where it is hard to know whether it is day or night. I like that instead of just redressing another watch, Breitling actually did something different with the Cosmonaute Automatic Chronograph watch.
