Sure, the differences are a plenty, but they reflect the market purpose and demographics of each watch. Fortis, the larger of the two companies volume wise, is known for making aviation professional watches that need to be clear and easy to use and read. German Temption is more focused on thoughtfully designed Bauhaus styled watches that stress architected looks without sacrificing any utilitarian appeal. Looking at the Fortis, you'll notice the large mostly Arabic number markers and thick plain pointed hands. The ETA 2836 movement adds a day of the week indication complication next to the date. Further, the chapter ring around the round dial is tilted with number indexes to improved legibility when viewing the watch at an angle. On the other hand, the layout of the Temption is equally clear, but more minimalistic. While the ETA 2892 is a higher grade movement, it lacks a day of the week complication, and the date is placed at a symmetrical center position on the dial versus at the 3 o'clock position.
We all need to leave every once in a while. For you that means a few days without new posts from me. Don't fret however, I shall return on Wednesday August 13th. In the meantime, please enjoy this wonderful satire of Bill Watterson's timeless classic comic strip, Calvin & Hobbes. Instead of Calvin the protagonist and his man-eating tiger (stuffed animal) Hobbes, we have a different coupling with equally enjoyable discourse in rich tribute to Mr. Watterson's craft and creativity. That being Calvin and Jobs, Steve Jobs that is. You are bound to enjoy it. Especially because it describes Apple's lord and master with impeccable accuracy. Thank you Gizmodo.
As you can see, Palladium 950 has a lot of advantages to other metals of a similar look, and is now often being use on wedding bands. While new to the watch world, Ulysse Nardin found it to be a good metal to name a watch after. The Entire case of the Macho Palladium 950 (and bracelet) is constructed of Palladium 950. The result is something with a beautiful white finish, that is light, and feels nice to the touch.
The allure of the watch is all in the message. Closed it says "Love," followed by "You" when the watch is opened. The cursive script of the two worlds meld together nicely. The best part is that each time she need to check the time, she reads the message, "Love You." Nothing expresses that statement better. For those who can afford it, this is a pretty darn perfect Valentines Day gift. Well over ,000.

This review of the Tissot T-Touch Expert is about the quartz watch that made quartz watches cool again. Years ago when I first began my acquaintance with mechanical watches, the notion that quartz watches were inferior began to develop. These less expensive, economy movements of mass production couldn’t hold ground to the growing fascination I was having with mechanical movements. Even though mechanical movements are less precise than their quartz contenders, I still feel a preference for the level of dedication and time that goes into mechanical watch creation.
Inside is an in-house Zenith El Primero 4021 B movement. Zenith is a very adept movement maker. There are a couple of things about this movement that I really like. starting with the visual aspect, Zenith has always done a good job at making very good looking movements. The rear of the watch has a see-through caseback window, while the dial has an exposed window into part of the escapement. What is different with the El Primero movement is that it actually looks really special. The detailing is so impressive, and this is one of the only non-tourbillon windows that actually like looking through a lot. This is what is meant by the "Open" label on Zenith watches, and I do recommend checking them out. The movement is an automatic, and features a rotor that winds the watch either way it turns. Typically, the rotor only winds when moving in one direction.

I cannot decide whether I have concerns over the precision of the Korona dial. While the movement should be accurate enough, I speak to the ability to easily and accurately read the time. The many linear indications around the face are not precisely set up to the five minute increments between the twelve indexes. While you can get to the "five" minute precision, beyond that, there might be some confusion. I'd really have to live with the watch for a while to make a more qualified determination. Overall, this is a small issue given the bold looks of the watch that are otherwise very nice to look at.
