Stylistically you have an interesting quandary. What do you make of a watch without the watch? Although the time is displayed, this is really a bracelet. I have mixed feelings about this piece, but I lean toward liking it. In my opinion it is not a watch, at least not in the traditional sense, but more a functional bracelet. Perhaps there is no real distinction, but for some there might be. Bracelets come and go into style, even among those who would not ordinarily wear watches. Adding a bit of functionality (the ability to tell the time), might attract a different demographic than those strictly used to wearing watches. So in a way, this concept is a thematic barrier destroyer, which is good. Given demand, this watch (or whatever it is) might be made, arguably should be made. You can easily appreciate that even though it is simple in design, the concept is quite complex.

Sinn EZM4 Achilles Watch For The Medical Professional Or Doctor Sales & Auctions When I didn't include doctors in a list of professionals that tend to be watch lovers I got a bit of slack. In response, I will discuss a watch that will appeal to watch loving doctors as it is especially made for them. While there are a good deal of nice and fancy watches out there that a doctor can adorn on their rounds, here is a more tool-like approach to wrist wear.

You don't need much convincing that the Elemental watch is relatively bad-ass looking without being over the top. It is equally a man's watch, as it is an activity watch. If you really like, you can get a Linde Werdelin Land Instrument or Sea Instrument which attaches right over the watch (those are really cool, read about them on my site if you do a search for Linde Werdelin). Inside is a high-grade ETA 2892-2 with a custom rotor for Linde Werdelin. Size is impressive at 46mm wide. The watch is available on a rubber strap or DLC coated metal bracelet. Oh, the Linde Werdelin is rated to dive to 300 meters. Price is almost 3000 English Pounds, so start saving up! If you are unsure, Linde Werdelin offers a 5 day trial on their products to enjoy at home while you make your decision.

Erwin Sattler Mixes Old & New Perfectly With The Trilogie Watch, Clock, & Winder Combo Watch Releases Lets start with the watch itself. Using a modified Swiss automatic Valjoux 7750 movement Erwin Sattler creates an attractive regulator with a classic looking, yet high functional look. While the dial may look white, it is actually solid sterling silver. The watch is impressively large at 46mm, which I love because most of the time classically styled watches such as this are 42mm or smaller. I have no doubt that this Erwin Sattler watch will look impressive on the wrist regardless of the material used (steel, silver, or gold). Hands are blued steel with that turn of the century instrument look that is so popular now with the industrial revolution look revival.

* Light-weight titanium case and bracelet with a highly scratch resistant DLC (Diamond-like Carbon) coating. Not only does DLC shrug off all kinds of abuse, but it helps give the watch a very cool stealthy look appreciated by those of us who aren't so much into bling.
* Sapphire crystal (virtually scratchproof) with AR coating.
* Atomic calibration compatible with time signals in Japan, US, Germany, and China. Calibration occurs at 2 a.m., 3 a.m., and 4 a.m. The 4 a.m. calibration can be moved to any time of the day which is great for people who work nights. While calibrating, the second hand turns into a signal strength indicator.
* Solar powered with a 3.5 year power reserve, two levels of power-saving (the first for the LCDs, and the second for the analog hands), battery power indicator, and a low-battery warning. If the watch's battery ever dies completely, it's even smart enough to automatically calibrate once sufficiently recharged.
* World time. 43 cities are pre-programmed, and there's room to add one custom city (the time can be set in increments of 15 minutes which can accommodate pretty much any time zone on the planet). DST can be individually toggled for any of the 43 cities, and each city can be hidden if you'd like to remove it from the list (to make scrolling more efficient). And finally, you can swap your home and world time zones by depressing the two buttons on the right simultaneously. This is a great feature for people who frequently travel between the same two cities.
* Two world time alarms. Each alarm can be set to individual cities, and each alarm sounds a distinct tone. The alarms have a test function so you can try them out without actually having to set them and wait for them to go off.
* Countdown timer with a maximum time of 99 minutes.
* Stopwatch with a resolution of 1/100th of a second and a maximum time of 23 hours, 59 minutes, and 59.99 seconds.
* UTC subdial at the 12 o'clock position, 24-hour subdial at the 2 o'clock position, mode subdial at the 6 o'clock position, and battery power subdial at the 10 o'clock position.
* Internal timing bezel for analog timing. This is an extremely unusual feature typically only found on dive watches. The crown located at the 8 o'clock position rotates the inner bezel which you can use for timing against the analog minute hand.
* Red electroluminescent backlight (very cool effect), and surprisingly bright luminescent paint on the hour and minute hands, hour indices, and the "pearl" of the rotating diving bezel.
* Tri-fold push-button clasp with slide micro-adjuster. Rather than moving spring pins to make micro adjustments to the bracelet, just depress the clasp buttons and slide the bracelet in or out to get a perfect fit.
* Anti-magnetic to 4,800 A/m (not quite a Rolex Milgauss, but not bad), hand correction function (in case the hands get misaligned due to magnetism or shock), and shock-resistant construction.
* Water resistant to 100 meters, or about 330 feet.

When I first saw the scaly bracelet of this watch, I instantly thought about Aquaman, the orange scale shirted, underwater comic book (hero?) character who "speaks with fishes." He probably sleeps with the fishes too. The pictured watches from from the Spirit of the Dragon collection from watch maker Veni Vidi Vici, whose goal is to recreate the romance of the Roman empire - in watch form. This aesthetic is a bit better represented in some of their other watches.

Taking generously from popular phone designs from Motorola (RAZR), and Sanyo, among others, the Triple CellPhone watch is a nice amalgamation of some of today (and yesterday's) best phone design from an aesthetic standpoint. Usability does not look hampered by its design, and it is up to the software and people to make it function properly. I would say that the Triple Watch CellPhone (yes I keep mixing up the name because it is written in several ways in several places, and is not a true "cell" phone) is perfectly usable and comfortable from an ergonomics standpoint.

As a final touch the dial has been personalized with the inscription “Monte-Carlo 1973” and the case-back is engraved with the winners’ number plate, the names of the car and its drivers.

Alternatively, if you are a buyer interested in bidding on an auction with a reserve price, it would behoove you to simply ask the seller what the reserve price is. Easy enough, considering a lot of desirable watch auctions are listed with a reserve price, and it is helpful to simply know what that price is. Happy eBaying.

It is easy to see how this watch came into existence. Zodiac is part of the uber-mediocre Fossil watch company. Think of a committee sitting around together. Maybe only one or two of them knows anything about the technical side of watch making. The rest are product designers, hipsters, and marketing people who like to gauge market trends. Someone blandly comments, "Zodiac has a deep history with diving, let's create something bold, that fits in the existing product line." The non-technical designers go to work, basically ignoring most of the functional elements, and only focusing on pure form, or what their teachers awarded them on in product design school. They take into consideration the memo that big watches are in, they look at other diving watches, and have some idea of the materials they can work with. Oh, and watches tend to look more 'legitimate' when there are lots of instrumental looking hash marks on the dial. Who knows what odd impractical thing they came up with initially?

Though I have mentioned Temption Cherubin watches before, I've never featured the Cherubin GDA model. Another limited edition (500 pieces) Cherubin model. This is likely to be one of the most sophisticated Cherubin watches, and this model is beautiful with its red trimmed parts. The watch also comes in different trims including blue, green, and a few others I believe. The Cherubin watches are at the top of the German Temption's line-up. Highly stylized watches that clearly retain class and dignity without succumbing to any fleeting appeal of avant garde design. Basically I am saying that while there are no other watches out there that resemble the Temption Cherubin GDA, but nevertheless the Cherubin fits in nicely with other high-end watches and has lasting appeal.

When You Must Travel With Lots Of Watches And Have Servants, Piaget Is There For You With the Collector's Trunk Luxury Items I had an opportunity to experience these watch trunks from Piaget a few months ago while some Piaget representatives where in San Francisco at a watch show. I was impressed that the company had these enormous custom made watch cases fit for a passenger on the Titanic. What I didn't know was that enough people would declare "I want one," sufficient for Piaget to go out and produce enough of them for sale to the semi-public. Well here you have it, the Piaget Collector's Trunk is surely kit for a king, or any other manner of royalty (price to correspond).

Calling it "Macho" is more of a playing naming scheme, and goes along with Ulysse Nardin's character. Other watches they have bear names like "Freak." The next part of the name is Palladium 950, which refers to a special type of Palladium metal used. You'll notice that new metals are used in their pure form in watch and jewelry making. Instead, countless alloys are used and created for literally thousands of niche purposes. Then there are those alloys that are so good, they can enjoy broad use. One such alloy is grade 316L steel, which is used on high quality steel watches. There is also Palladium 950.

Another thing you need to know is that retailers are keen to the fact that you like getting a good deal. Consumers like savings, and mark-offs, and sales. What better way to indicate perceived savings that start with an inflated "retail" cost, and then offer you something below that price. In fact, most MSRP (usually the same as retail prices), are based at the top of what they think any consumer will pay for the good. From there, each retailer has a degree of wiggle room. This is why you always see a retail price with a slash through it, and the price at which you can buy it. In fact, in most categories, you should never actually have to pay retail for anything.
