If you are into wood, they you might just be into this watch. I think it is pretty swanky over all and would certainly sport it whenever wood is appropriate. Price is 7.50 via ShopNBC.com.Read more ›
Amazing what a visual redo can do to one's perception. The light weight Pathfinder watch never looked so fresh. All of its many features right at your finger tips, and the added point that people will notice this item on your wrist much more. When wearing the watch I pretty much think about Star Wars, specially Endor. What better scene than a forest battle for a green colored watch? Tell me that this gadget wouldn't have worked well on the wrists of the Endor Forest Rangers (aka, Endor Rebel Troopers). See the included images and video. This watch would have fit in well, given of course that it existed 30 years ago... Yes, nerdy/geeky it is, but a lot of 'watch love' is about emotion. And if wearing a watch and thinking about a movie series I enjoy makes me happy about wearing the watch - everyone is happy.Read more ›
At first glance the watch may look like it needs crutches, being "one lugged" and all. But the interesting use of one lug on each side gives it a sort of two faced personality that is interesting. Plus, the 42mm wide steel watch case (mirrored in the chronograph subdials) is meant to look like a particular type of wheel cam. I am not sure of the name, but I have see this part before In parts bins. The thick bezel is engraved with a cote de Paris style texture, while this look is sort of replicated on the dial.
Internet shopping was easy, efficient, no pressure, allowed for quick research, offered a world of choices, and was cheaper than buying in a store. The only advantage many stores still had was the support from the brands and the newest watches. That and the fact that many consumers actually want to touch and see watches they want to buy. Which is partially where I come in. In addition to notifying consumers about new products, I also offer advice rich reviews and actual product images. With sites like aBlogtoRead.com, you could conceivable learn about, research, and buy a watch all without every stepping into an authorized dealer's store.Read more ›

You can also see that Girard Perregaux can get a significantly different look from the watch by changing the case material, hands, and the hour markers. Not to mention of course the dial colors and the trim. The same look can go from really classy in all he ww.tc Financial watches to sporty in the ww.tc Chronograph, and the Shadow. Then there are the ww.tc Small Second versions and other similar non chrono models. These have a more chic and simple look, but retain the clever world time functions. Case materials can be found in steel, titanium, ceramic, white gold, pink gold, and maybe more.
