Vulcain Anniversary Heart Cricket Watch For President Barack Obama: Thoughts
Functions retain Casio "triple sensor" family that has the compass, pressure sensor (barometer and altimeter), and thermometer. These are all easy to use and handy features. There is also the computer which does a tons of things like having the world time, calendar, alarms, countdown timer, chronograph, and other functions. The PAW-1500 has a tide chart and moon phase, not sure if this model has those features. It does however feature the sunrise and sunset time. This is good for all sorts of people including fishermen or hunters, and of course vampire hunters! Not to mention the rest of you who will appreciate this data that takes into consideration your timezone and the time of year. Realize that the PAW-2000 does not seek to put the PAW-1500 out of business, but rather will offer a slightly different feature set depending on what you need.
There are several versions of the Technograph Wild watch, even in python skin. This is the gray version, or otherwise known as that Ref. P0334-2Q.SG.L3201. The watch has an interesting automatic chronograph movement. It can measure up to 30 minutes, and uses the right subdial for the chronograph minutes. Although the dials are partially covered, the dial uses a double sided hand, that is longer on one side. That way the same half of the subdial can be used for two purposes based on the length of the hand following it. Get it? This is the same for the time seconds subdial on the left side. The watch face is in the center of the dial, and smaller. The chronograph seconds hand is the largest hand on the face, and uses the whole dial. The watch also has a date complication. Overall a very attractive design if you ask me.
Ezteem is a new Swedish watchmaker (from 2005) and the model I review here (Lynx Aqua) is their current offering for divers and desk-divers alike. I was intrigued by the brand since I haven't handled a lot of Swedish watches before and Sweden is known for great design. So I expected a lot from them.
Avenir Chrono was started by the Ukrainian immigrants jewelers who started the popular Rafaello & Company Jewelers. Looks like there is gonna a long line of chronograph watches coming from them with a name like that. The watches are made via partners in Switzerland with Swiss movements. The Boss Premiere timepieces use ETA Valjoux 7753 automatic movements. There are the same as a Valjoux 7750, but with a tri-compax chronograph layout and no day of the week indicator. There is likely an open caseback with a view into the movement.
As Fredrik Gisle from Ezteem watches put it "At a glance it seems simple and straight forward. Yet there are many details thoroughly planned, which makes the watch both bold and elegant. We hope this gives warmth to the owner, from a Sweden that is otherwise cold a large portion of the year."
