You can tell that the new Polo Forty Five watch is something new for them. The first titanium Piaget watch, and certain the most sporty. As I have mentioned before, I think this is also the first Piaget watch to ever use a rubber strap. It is an evolution on the Polo theme, and we will see where the new direction takes Piaget. Another benefit of videos like this is the actual images of the watch. Too often we are presented with computer watch renderings that just to give enough of a story. While I love such imagery, it doesn't give you the full view that you want to have. At well over ,000, the new Piaget Polo Forty Five watches are no bargain (and even more for the chronograph version pictured), even given their in-house Piaget made movements. Check out the video and see what you think, these are always fun to watch.

The first thing you notice when holding a Nubeo watch is that they have a level of detail typically unseen in other timepieces. Edges are so perfectly cut, colors are vivid and sharp without holding back, lines are fluid and meld together. These are truly works of art that have been translated into haute horology, and imbued with a very high level of manufacturing pride. The first watch pictured is the Black Jellyfish in rose gold and rubber. The case features both brushed and polished surfaces and rubber is used in unique ways over the bezel. The strap is exquisite and you have these gold links that move like spinal vertebrae when you move or twist the strap. Part of the "organic" aspect of the design. The dial is meld of various textures and materials that remind you of sea shells and fossils. Still, the face of the watch is very easy to read. Inside the watch is a modified automatic ETA Valjoux 7750 movement. The traditional chronograph movement has the chronograph part of it taken out. The reason the movement is used is that it was likely the easiest way to have the subsidiary seconds dial placed in the correct position while still retaining a hardy movement that did not require a module to be placed on it. Actually across all Nubeo timepieces, I'd say the Valjoux 7750 is their favorite movement to use.

What is different about this Hamilton Seaview Automatic Diver watch? I thought about this question for a little while before writing anything down. I know I have seen the nautical almost art deco themed font used for the numbering before. The font is sort of an amalgamation of everything ocean-worthy and futuristic from 1920 -1970. Gently shaded, the large applied number totally make the watch. Without them it would be just another passable for forgettable Hamilton watch. The watch is pretty big too at 46mm wide, and the relatively small numbers on the rotating diver's bezel don't help the large wrist footprint. But that is OK, you want a nice looking watch like this to standout.

Looking at the supple, durable white rubber band, I can actually see this watch on a woman's wrist. Wish it was on mine. Tissot has built a rep for integrating different materials to create a watch that is versatile, durable, and priced well. With all the accents that they've included, like the checkered flags and Danica blue indicators, Tissot is definitely successful in their final product.
