Collector's Corner: "I want variation in my Speedmaster watches"

Price for these watches is likely a couple thousand dollars. Not too much more than that I am sure. For that price they are indeed a splurge for most of the people in my mind that will like them here in the US, but not something that is so expensive you just scoff and shake your head. Any understanding of the Swiss watch market will rather easily justify these prices. While the RSW Outland 3H isn't a watch revolution, it is a fresh look, with a mind for a market that largely ignores watches but shouldn't. How to capture 'generation .com' isn't clear, but doing so with cheeky watches that look like what your uncle wore back in 1979 isn't necessarily the best way of going about it. At the same time, the Outland 3H is nifty watch novelty that should speak nicely to enough people. Look for it soon.

Unless you know Jean-Claude, it might not occur to you that he is a good listener. Perhaps surprisingly he is, even humble in many ways. He is remarkably receptive to ideas and advice — at least when it comes to listening them. JCB likes to mention that he makes quick decisions doesn’t engage in the typical long and drawn out Swiss process of deciding how to do things. As Swiss as his cheese making is, JCB isn’t a typical Swiss manager. His thought process is much more cerebral than it is committee based.
Sissi SAKI-FARIÃ‘A got her Ph. D. in Computer Sciences, at the age of 20 at MIT. Sissi made a fortune free-lancing as a statistical analyst for the biggest search-engine company in the world during her studying years at the MIT however lost all of it in the 2008 financial debacle. She was hired as a scientific consultant by the south-Asian microchip factory last September, after the engineers discovered the trail of uncanny performances by the “Perfect Five” batch of microprocessors. Sissy was hired by the Linde Werdelin founders after a very exciting meeting in Copenhagen where everyone agreed that the NGX 5128 code would be the best project for the first “Summit”.
As you can see I have some images of a Seiko Active Martix EPD watch. This is the "show model" and is a concept - not the version that will be released (the image of that is at the top of this article). It is beautiful, sleek yet angular, and quasi futuristic. It is a futurized revision of their original 6 digit digital LCD display watch from way back when. The production model (at least for now) will be the above version like I said. While similar, it has a lot of changes. Which is actually good, cause it means that watch will likely not cost as much as if Seiko used the concept watch case and style. We want these to be affordable right? But if I was a betting man, I would wager that the concept watch from Baselworld 2010 might become a reality at some point (Japan only? Likely). It is just too nice not to consider for at least limited production.
The watch really resembles some of the Orfina or IWC Porsche Design watches of the 80's era. Eterna has been doing well though with the brand products (even if they are overpriced). The titanium bracelet looks more simple than it actually is, with the complex link structure hidden on the side. What you see on the outside is simple and clean.
JCB is greeted by the Hublot brand staff. They treat him with the reverence a boss deserves, as well as a slight level of intimidation. Not out of fear, but more that JCB has a very assertive and direct personality, which is in contrast to the more tranquil and reserved Swiss personality many people are familiar with. In fact, one of JCB’s most notable characteristics is his habit of “passionate annunciation” as I will call it. The volume of his thoughts is quite well equal his conviction — and manifests itself as a friendly reminder of why JCB often welcomes you with a flushed face.
Personally I like some of the models enough that I would gladly wear them when I am in the mood for such a bold and fun piece. I think something like this has the potential of being a real fashion icon. Yvan isn't trying to make ripples in the world of haute horology, but rather offering fun pieces of wearable watch art that have a masculine edge, and are highly original. Price for the main Volnatomic collection is going to be several thousand dollars each.
Porsche Design P’6780 Diver Watch Is Hand-Me-Down Eterna

Porsche Design P’6780 Diver Watch Is Hand-Me-Down Eterna
I think there has been some misunderstanding. A surprisingly low number of people entered to win the Puslar Men's Automatic watch. This really cool dress watch that has Pulsar made automatic movement, and is a nice 45mm wide in size. Pulsar is a Seiko group owned brand, and this timepiece is a glowing example of a modern, traditional Japanese mechanical dress watch. You can't sport a sport watch all the time? Retail price is 0. You have just a bit of time to enter before the giveaway ends at the end of August.
In fact, Christiaan van der Klaauw (CVDK) pretty much only makes "astronomical watches." The Planetarium has the smallest such complication in the world on the dial. Even before clocks existed, there were astrological devices meant to track the heavens. The watch movement is a heavily modified ETA 2824 with a hell of a module on it. Aside from the time, the watch has an annual calendar with the month and the date, as well as a planetarium that shows the relative placement of Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn around the sun. What? No Uranus? I would have totally given a small shout out to Pluto as well... you know, for old times' sake.
Like I said, you will recognize the design elements including the Arabic numeral "12" and hour marker styles from digital clocks. Without being a cheesy homage to he 1980's, RSW was able to incorporate a vintage style looking dial on a modern watch, and do it well. The large hands are very easy to read, and taken from another RSW piece known simply as the Diving Tool Watch. The dial is also enhanced by SuperLumiNova luminant. In addition to a few case style choices, there are a number of dial choices. Black with a variety of hand and numeral colors (such as green, yellow, red, white), and with a white dial or silvered dial. RSW is pretty much just having a fun time offering a number of colorful options. Who knows what will sell the best, they all look pretty neat depending on your taste.
Some people speak for the trees, and others speak for the whales, and dolphins (and porpoises, sharks, turtles, and umm.... others animals). Enter the Sea Shepherd Conservation society, its boats, and its vagabond band of activists. Some people call them eco-terrorists, some call them the only people out there actively trying to do something about the problems of illegal whaling and other vicious anti-Earth activities. Personally, I am glad that someone is doing more than just whining on a sidewalk in Berkeley. You can talk all the crap you want to about people like those who volunteer at Sea Shepherd, but dammit they mean what they say, and are proactive. They kind of realized that protesting alone was the worst way of getting anything done. Oh, and they actually sink ships I hear, which is pretty cool.
The black dial here is hard to appreciate in images. It has various shades of black from the stripes to the subdials. The polished steel segments on the dial including the hands are hour markers are eye-pleasing and calming. There are a variety of unique, but simple shapes all over the watch that aid to it being easy to love. the crown has a black cabochon it in to match the dial, while the chronograph pushers are tapered to create the illusion that the case itself tapers as well. Large lug screws feel instrumental and masculine. This is a men's watch after all.
After years of struggle, and a complex accumulation of factors, the industry of selling watch is about to rapidly change. It isn't so much a matter of a black and white distinction (in terms of one thing is totally in and another thing is totally out), but the old business model is more or less - dying a slow, painful, and less than quiet death. Here is how it used to be - for well over 100 years. Watch brand sells watch at wholesale rate to watch retailer (known as the authorized dealer). Watch retailer sells the watch for the retail price and keeps the difference as its profit (usually about 50%). In exchange for buying watches from the factory before they are sold to consumers, retailers often (but not all the time) get exclusive rights in a particular area or territory in which to sell the watch. It was a win-win situation for people making watches and people who have the ability to sell the watches. This is the way it was, and people were happy (as long and consumers were buying watches that is).
The Nabucco Va. Pensiero houses a Swiss ETA 7753 automatic chronograph movement. This is basically a modified 7750 with the chronograph subdials in a tri-compax layout and the day of the week indicator removed. The date is still there though. A solid movement that is nothing to be ashamed of. The chronograph pushers are screw down, and there looks to be a helium escape valve on the watch (though I am not really sure why). I like the deeply-engraved Raymond Weil "RW" logo in the crown. The large watch is matched to a black crocodile strap. Price is probably in the ,000 - ,500 range when it will be released soon. Last, let me give you one final gem from the press release. "Let the Nabucco Va, Pensiero spirit you away on the wings of freedom." I have decided that these press releases are more or less like Mad Libs when it comes comes down to it. "add brand name here, add adjective here, add animal part here."
A likely reaction to the fact that Hublot is growing. As I said, the manufacture will be larger by the winter of 2010, and Hublot will be making thousands of movements a year. I wonder what Hublot will be like a few years from now. Mature with their in-house movements, new models, and a legion of new fans and owners. Hublot is poised to be a new phenomenon in luxury sport watches. The gold standard in marketing, design, and image. Image being the most important part of it.
The gray tones all over the watch add to the titanium feel, as well as function as Raymond Weil's hat thrown into the gray watch trend. The 46mm case is made from a few titanium pieces and has some interesting intended sides. Style is pretty much standard Nabucco with a few little changes here and there. The dial features three colors of gray. The hour indicators are SuperLumiNova anthracite, while the chronograph frame is a more cement colored gray, contrasting with the dustier toned dial. Raymond Weil gives the dial an interesting "step" texture that I like. The dial is OK, a bit busy, but still attractive. My main concern are the hands. They blend in with the dial too much. You can't tell in the marketing images, but they don't fare to well in all lighting situations. Raymond Weil should have done the hands in a much lighter tone to contrast with the gray. I bet yellow hands for the time and chronograph subdials would have been cool.
I do really like this watch and find myself claiming it for wrist time more often than not. Other people seem to like it as well. When they do, it gives me the opportunity to tell them all about Bremont, and the U-2. I like that it is an English watch (with a Swiss movement). Something about "London" written on the dial as opposed to "Swiss Made" that feel fresh. The movement is Swiss, like I said. Bremont uses as base ETA 2836 automatic - that has a day and date feature. Bremont modifies it a bit and calls it the Bremont Caliber BE-36AE. The movement has further been COSC Chronometer certified for accuracy. In addition to having some really nice perlage polish and blued steel screws, it has a very cool black colored custom Bremont rotor. There is a great (though watch nerd) joy when you hand someone a cool looking functional watch, only to have them turn it over and say "wow" when seeing the unexpected decorated movement.
