Artya Bye Bye Euro Watch Watch Releases

'Small' seemed to be an overarching tone in the guide. It was clearly marked for novices. Not once I believe, was the term "movement' mentioned. Why is it that fashion editors in New York are afraid of large watches? They seemed to make one exception for 44mm wide Panerai timepieces, which are clearly not very large by today's standards. Anyhow, looks like the fashion elite edict that small is in. This brings me to the point at hand, my review of the MARCH LA.B AM 1 watch that is 37mm wide. A segment of the watch wearing population seems to be arguing that large it out, some people are yelling "long live the large watch." I don't know why people need to assert the existence or denial of a trend. The only person who should care what the size of your watch is... well, is you. I personally prefer "larger" watches. Not because I think it is 'in,' but because that is what I like. I have always like that. But I have sported smaller pieces in my life, and I don't have a problem with it. Can't small and large watches live together in harmony... in one's timepiece collection?

Impressive IWC Replica Watches

Seen next to the time-only model, you can see that the width difference is minuscule, and how the pirate theme is more subtle in black. It looks like the bezel color is more green as well. Otherwise very similar. Both bezels are domed acrylic, which is prone to scratching, perhaps they can manage sapphire in the future.

Elysee Classic Aviator Automatic 71003 Watch Review Wrist Time Reviews

"Memento Mori" isn't a name that hasn't been used before, but a design like this is cool and unique. The watch case is literally shaped like a skull. This one has been hand-engraved in solid sterling silver (also the crown). Not sure of the size, but it does not look too small or too large. Interesting touches include the traditional style blued-steel hands and aviator style crown. That combo looks inspired from Peter Speake Marin if you ask me.

As SIHH each year Jaeger-LeCoultre is on my short list of brands that I am very excited to see. Their booth isn't design by people who work at Universal Studios, and their watches are cool creations that real people might actually wear. This applies to both their reasonably priced pieces and more exotic fare like this new version of the Duometre called the Spherotourbillon. For us Americans I have removed the assortment of accents marks in the words which add in that Frenchy flavor you get when JLC themselves to pronounce the name for you.

Orient M-Force SEL03001D Diver Watch Review Wrist Time Reviews

Wait a minute, de GRISOGONO is thinking along those lines already! Look at that oddly placed gold plate on the dial at 7 o'clock. Engraved right on there in power cursive is "Power Breaker." Screw the lighting letters, they already have the text done for you! de GRISOGONO really does think of everything.

One For The Road: The IWC Replica in an AMG Roadster

Sporting or driving, this is a well-made fashion watch for those who have a special place in their heart for polished wood (or Bugattis, or Ralph Lauren). Inside the watch is an IWC made hand-wound movement that RL called their Calibre RL98295. Finishing is nice, and I can see how the design of the watch and movement feel very mid 20th century high society. While it isn't a very complicated watch, it isn't ludicrously expensive (comparatively speaking) at ,400. You don't need to rush out and get one, but it should be another step in you accepting the RL watch brand as being more than some expensive version of Emporio Armani watches.

In addition to wrist watches Jaeger-LeCoultre continues to produce many versions of their famous Atmos clocks - and they do it right here in Le Sentier. The Atmos clock is an amazing device that is powered by changes in air temperature. Fluctuation of just one degree per day is enough to keep the clock going forever bascially. The Atmos department is a wonderland for collectors of the famous clocks. The department not only builds new clocks, but also tests them and services ones sent in for repairs. There are endless Atmos variants from all eras in rows of wood cases that show them off. It is very interesting to see the different clocks and understand the technology that in many ways does offer a truly perpetual mechanism. Atmos clocks are also strategically set up throughout the manufacture on walls to provide the time to employees.

Pump-Up Your Weekend With An Invicta Bolt Chronograph

Bell & Ross BR 01-92 Carbon Watch Review Wrist Time Reviews

I will repeat once again that I truly love this watch. It makes for a great daily wear and I pick it up a lot when I am in a rush because I know that I don't need to adjust the time, and can leave it around without putting it in a winder as I do with automatics. Plus, the Monaco Historique Time Attack MF is a gorgeous looking watch that fits with just about anything.  I wouldn't mind having it as my only watch if I needed to pick one. No, I have not abandoned my love for mechanical watches, but if there is an argument to made for quartz, it is a Superquartz. If you get one of these and someone gives you crap for having a ticking seconds hand, just sit them down and explain the merits of Superquartz and that the advanced thermocompensated quartz movement in your watch actually costs more than the mechanical movement in their watch if they have a relatively common Swiss ETA automatic movement in theirs. Prices for the Chopard Monaco Historique Time Attack MF watch ranged from about ,800 - ,000 when they were released and can probably be found in a few places still.

As really cool feature (especially for a lot of people I know) is the "find my phone" tool. Given that your watch is in Bluetooth range of your smartphone (maybe 30 feet), you will be able to have your phone ring if you can't find it. This is good if the phone is dropped under a seat in the car, long in a bag, or caught somewhere in bed covers.
