The Sinn Rubber strap is more comfortable since it reduces the weight considerably (173g for the large folding clasp buckle and 155g for the small buckle).  However, the Sinn folding clasp (large) is sub-par.  While great looking, it is large and scratches easily and also not micro-adjustable. It has a diver extension but it's relatively long at about 10mm.  Sinn sells a smaller clasp version as well as tegimented steel versions.

Very prosaic and practical. Should make it easier to shop their collection.

If the RM036 is as durable as Richard Mille claims it to be, then we have another rather impressive piece of ludicrously over-engineered mechanical porn that certainly gets our wheels turning. Rather than the watch acting as a safety tool, I have a feeling that would-be racers with more money than good sense will use it to see how far they can make the needle go while rapidly braking their Lambos and Porsche's on the track. Richard Mille will produce just 15 pieces in this limited edition set of RM036 G-Sensor watches in titanium. Price is 0,000. richardmille.com

Cartier

Necessary Data
>Brand: Glam Rock
>Model: SoBe Tachymeter 44mm
>Price: 5
>Would reviewer personally wear it: Maybe
>Friend we'd recommend it to first: Seasoned watch lovers will yearn for more, but it makes for a eye-catching piece for those with modest budgets or who just don't feel the need for anything high-end or mechanical. A decently exciting watch for "everyone else."
>Worst characteristic of watch: Interchangeable bezel system is slick but bezels other than the stock unit feel ill-designed for the watch's design.
>Best characteristic of watch: Not a "me too" fashion watch but is familiar enough to satisfy a lot of lay folk.

There is no way to give an actual percentage to the question of how many high-end dive watches get used underwater, but I'd venture to say 1% or so actually spend any significant time in the sea. When we swim or dive with high-end watches it is mainly for novelty value, since they aren't strictly necessary. Long gone are the days that you needed to heavily invest in a serious professional dive watch if you wanted to have a reliable instrument underwater. So wear your affordable diver when diving and keep your nice ones for desk duty.


As a former Navy pilot, Kelly pointed out that space shuttles make for terrible planes. They don't have engines to help land, and their delta wing orientation makes for "unforgiving flying." They are basically gliders once they get back into the atmosphere he says, and they are not exactly designed with elegance.

Ochs Und Junior New Colors And Names For Watches Watch Releases

Ulysses Nardin’s original Freak from 2001 is one of the “legend watches” - it possesses horological significance and has a distinctive design. Over the years, the brand has released a number of variants of the Freak and this year sees the release of the Freak Cruiser which, according to our Editor-in-Chief Ariel, is one of his favorites. Find out why in our hands-on article.

The dial is recessed and a second smaller dial where the caliper moves contains markers for 1/5th second between any two second markers. The bezel is also polished steel with a black marked tachymetre that is done discretely, thereby, not distracting the users who may not care to measure speed.

Bremont ALT1-B2 GMT Chronograph Watch Watch Releases

Emporio Armani went low-end, also using Fossil as a manufacturer for its watches. Ralph Lauren went decidedly high-end. And from Burberry to Ermenegildo Zegna, to many more, you'll find everything in between. It brings up the interesting question of how a high-end clothing maker could or should enter the world of watches. To people like me, buying a watch from a fashion label should be an "honest" experience. The timepiece should be as good or better than the clothing. That is if we are interested in having a brand that makes pants also make our watch. On the other hand, what does the mainstream want?

Tudor Pelagos Watch Review Wrist Time Reviews

Source: aBlogtoWatch

What you see here is a collection of mostly 1950s era Breguet Type XX timepieces. In mostly fine condition, these watches are extremely rare and many now once again belong to Breguet. However, many of you are aware that Breguet is not the only company to have a "Type XX" watch. Dodane for example is another maker of Type XX watches and there have been others historically. So what does Type XX mean? I must admit that in writing this article I opted to supplant my own knowledge a bit by doing some research. I knew the basic history of the Breguet Type XX, but I needed to know more. The basic story is interesting, and a treat to those interested in how certain functional timepiece designs became so popular.

The Moray 42, like much of Benarus' current offerings, is powered by the Miyota 9015 automatic movement. Miyota is a Japanese company under the Citizen umbrella and the 9015 is essentially their response to the ETA 2824. With 24 jewels, a power reserve of over 42 hours, and a running rate of 28,800 vph, the 9015 is capable of accurate timekeeping and, to the end user, offers the same features as the 2824 (three hands and date). My Moray 1 was powered by the Miyota 8215 which was a much more basic movement and did not offer the hacking feature that is found in the 9015. I found this Moray 42 to be quite accurate, running 2-3 seconds slow over 24 hours (anecdotal, no timing equipment was used, your results will vary). Time and date are controlled by the screw down crown which is very grippy and quite easy to use. The Moray 42 does exhibit an audible rotor sound while the rotor spins, though I did not find the motion to be perceptible while on-wrist.

Urwerk will produce just 35 pieces of this version of the Urwerk UR-210 watch in titanium. If I know anything about Urwerk then there will be more case finishes and limited editions available in the future. It is worth noting that the nickname of this watch is the "Maltese Falcon" due to the shape of the minute hand. However, I just don't see the connection. Price is 137,000 Swiss Francs and thanks to Westime LA and Urwerk for showing me the piece.

Under Fiechter's direction, the watch was developed much in the way that Maloubier and Riffaud had envisioned. Fiechter, being a diver himself, added that most famous aspect to the bezel, its unidirectional nature to decrease the marked dive time in the event the watch was bumped underwater. The resulting watch was so successful that it went on to be adopted not just by military personnel the world over but early explorers of the ocean. Jean-Jacques Cousteau for example was one such early adopter who wore it in the famous film "The Silent World".

Laurent Ferrier offers a few dial variations of the Galet Classic Micro-Rotor from a brush slate dial to one in a silver tone. Again, while they are quite attractive, I find them less engaging than the very beautiful enamel dials of the tourbillon. Which actually is a rare timepiece with Roman numerals that I like. Still, the dials on the Micro-Rotor should satisfy most. I bet they would customize one for you as well if you asked.

For my money, Christophe Claret is the guy I would hire to run a movement design department of a watch company. In fact, for much of his career in watches, that was what he was doing. What I like about Christophe, and even more so respect, is that he "gets" what mechanical watchmaking really is in today's world. Some watchmakers present themselves as religious zealots - keeping the faith alive by preserving the honor and tradition of traditional watchmaking. Claret has advanced beyond that. Like a kid, he knows that mechanical watches are toys for the rich - of all ages. And there are different types of mechanical watches for different levels of "rich."

On the wrist, it's a versatile watch. Definitely dressy, it's one I'd recommend for business. Not too fancy, not too plain, not too expensive, this is a watch that says you appreciate timepieces but aren't looking for bling. On the minus side, 14.4mm is thicker than I like for dress wear, and makes it a bit top-heavy.
