LUM-TEC Lumzilla Watches Are Coming Watch Releases

Let me stop for a moment to make a few clarifications. One, I don't have a problem per se with Tourneau. Two, there are plenty of good people at Tourneau from sales people to managers. Three, I voice these sentiments as a message to Tourneau because I genuinely want them to improve. They have so much to work with.

While there have been a few new releases from Eterna this year, the company has been relatively quiet. I did happen to notice this fine new release based on their re-issue of the classic KonTiki model. There have actually been a great deal of KonTiki watches over the years, but the versions with the four triangles are the purest in form. The recently re-released the KonTiki had a centralized date dial with an indicator hand, this new model has an internal date disc with a covertly placed date window between 4 and 5 o’clock. I must admit that it does improve the look of the watch — as the date window is functional, but not obtrusive. It further allows for greater appreciation of the dial and basic theme of the watch. The watch was designed as a sport watch back in the 1950s (I believe). Funny how what was informal then, almost looks formal now. Though the black and orange faced version is still quite sporty looking and certainly has the best personality of the two in my opinion. Really spectacular.

No doubt the dial of the watch is going to be a polarizing design. You either love the artsy, architectural, mechanical look, or you don't. There is nothing inherently wrong with it. The dial is not very easy to read, but that isn't the point. This is a "look at me watch." It wants you to spend more time admiring it, than caring about what time it is. There is a ballsy masculinity to it, which is does not try to hide. At the end of the year Avakian is going to release more watches using the Watch Concept 1 format, as well as some new women's watches. If they catch my eye, I will be sure to share them with you.

Us poorly situated Americans oft not get to enjoy such events as the Grand Prix d'Horlogerie de Genève 2009. High-brow and ritzy, it is one of the most notable watch awards around. Here you have a viewing room (that is quite well executed), showing the guests views of the watches up for consideration. I like that no watch is given any higher level of importance in comparison to any other watch, and that they are each on spinning stand, so that you can see the entire watch.

If you are interesting in maybe getting one of these downers they are not expensive at 5. The watch is not too big at 35mm wide, and a long 46mm tall. The case is in steel, and has those nice long, curved lugs. Likely a mineral crystal with 50 meters of water resistance and a quartz movement inside. It comes with a nice box and a black leather strap with contrast white stitching. I must admit that the retro chic styled watch isn't half bad. I even like how Mr. Jones Watches designed the dial and hands, but the message is fearful in my opinion. For a sure way to scare the neighbor's kids this year, this watch is your best bet.

Really there isn't much else known about the watch. I will leave it up to Parmigiani to let us know about the materials, size, movement, etc... later on. It is clear that the watch will have the time, exposed tourbillon, as well as a prominent power reserve indicator. The watch is purposefully made to be easy to read from a distance.

The dial is also Pro styled with the most bold numerals and hands. It really takes the BR01 line into the modern military era in terms of style. I love the look. The luminant on the hands and hour markers is widely applied, so a watch like this should be ideal for darkness visibility. I also like the style of the chronograph subsidiary dials on the BR01-94 Carbon Fiber model. Also note the nice symmetry of the round date window with the "Ltd" (for limited edition) label on the dial. Each of the watches is limited to just 500 pieces. Not sure about the price specifics. I would guess somewhere between ,000 - ,000 each.

The debate over how to reduce the damages from replica watches has been raging on for a while. There is no way to stop the watch replica market, but their might be an easier way to determine which watches are fake. Plus, such technology could be used to identify and mark watches with much greater precision. That is exactly what Winwatch intends to do with their development of small RFID (radio frequency ID) tags that it will place inside of watch crystals. In fact, they see three major areas that such crystals will have. Those being, countering the counterfeit watch market, improving the manufacturing and supply chain process, as well as providing an ability to provide far superior customer support. They certainly have a good point is the special new crystal can be seamlessly integrated into the existing method of watch manufacturing.

Prometheus Ocean Diver Watch Review Wrist Time Reviews Arriving with the watch are two silicone straps. There is a black and bright red strap available for you. Changing the straps isn't particularly easy - so you'll probably prefer to stick with one or the other. The watch uses screw bars than need special tools to adjust (along with loosening the Loctite glue). If you know what you are doing. feel free to change the straps. I like the look and feel of the straps, but they are a bit of a double edged sword. The design is great, and the minor texturing on the strap is a welcome addition to the silicone. The tropical style straps were designed specially for the Ocean Diver watch. They are also very comfortable. The elastic material bend and moves easily, while creating a fair amount of traction on your wrist so the watch doesn't slip around. There is also a nice brushed steel "PWC" (Prometheus Watch Company) signed  buckle (sort of a joke and homage to how IWC signs their strap buckles I think).  However, the silicone material attracts a lot of dust, making, at least the black strap, look like a dark gray. The red strap suffers from this issue less. Actually the straps look better when they are wet! Another issue (at least for me) with the straps is that they are very long. The watch fits nicely on my ankle actually. On the plus side is that the Ocean Diver watch will easily accommodate most any 22mm wide watch strap. So go wild with what you think looks great on the watch.

You can also see that the watch is attached to a number of different types of straps that are alligator, and there are a few with that interesting 3D stacked cube design that feels pretty hip. They are a functional and friendly take on the ultra stylish indy watch for lovers of watches and unique mechanics. Each version of the Hautlence HL-Q (maybe half a dozen or so) is limited to just 88 pieces. Check out more at Hautlence here.

I do applaud Romain Jerome for being so ballsy and avant garde. They have made some nice one-off or limited edition pieces that spit in the face of fellow Swiss who are highly conservative most of the time - especially in terms of watch design. Actually, even Romain Jerome's non limited edition watches are "special." Love them or hate them you have to appreciate their niche and determination to be different.  However, that doesn't mean I have to love everything they make. This new special "art" watch by French artist André Chéca is a bit much for me. It is one of those things that I freely admit not liking, but appreciate the artistic endeavors behind it, and that it exists. As though I wouldn't get pissed about it being in a museum ("That isn't art, I could do that!"), but I would openly discuss my distaste for it ("My lord this piece tickles the vomit enticing regions of my gullet").

You don't need to spend a lot of money to get a decent mechanical diver's watch. When ,000 and more per a watch isn't in accordance with your budget it can be hard to feed the watch lover need. A little bit of good advice and horological discovery are all you need to fill your drawers with fun watches that look good, work well, and won't break the bank. Here is the orange dialed version of the Orient "Mako" CEM65001M automatic diver's watch. It has an Orient made manufacture mechanical calibre 469 movement with day and date, as well as a study steel bracelet and a good look. The watch comes in several dial colors if orange isn't your style. Other dial colors choices include yellow, black, blue. The yellow dialed version is a special edition model that can be acquired on on Amazon.com. There are also a few bezel color options available. Just to compare, the top of the line Orient Diver's watch is this CFD0C001B timepiece that I reviewed here.

Edox Grand Ocean Automatic Chronograph Watch Review

Edox Grand Ocean Automatic Chronograph Watch Review

I have been pondering how I should think about this watch for a while. I want to like it, and a big part of me does. Another part of me questions the wisdom of the watch. Is it wearable? Does it makes sense? Would you be considered akin to an alien from outer space for wearing one? The watch is a new piece from the Confrerie Horlogere, a watch making arm of the popular watch movement maker BNB Concept (that is about the declare bankruptcy). The model is the La Clef du Temps Tourbillon, and there will only be 24 of them ever made. Apparently one for each timezone. One of these watches was auctioned off in the Only Watch 2009 watch auction in September for well over 0,000 which was close to its retail price. As a limited edition of just 24 pieces, the watch can justify itself. Still, I feel the need to evaluate it as though they were going to me 24,000 of them.
