These fancy versions of the SpidoLite watches have alligator straps - but done in the special SpidoLite manner with the rectangular "portholes" on the sides. They look pretty darn good with the watches. Linde Werdelin's standard style case not only looks good but is also very comfortable to wear. You can see that the broad case is not very tall, making it very easy to wear. The style is incredibly diverse, which is why the same case has been used on pretty much every Linde Werdelin watch. In addition to looking like something out of a superhero's arsenal, the case is meant to have one of Linde Werdelin's Instruments (the Rock of the Reef) clip on to the top of it. Even though the case on the SpidoLite watches is richly skeletonized, it doesn't really have sharp edges. The two watch models are each limited to 88 pieces. The SpidoLite All Black Titanium DLC is going to be about 9,800 euros and the gold version will be 15,800 euros soon. Glad I got to check these out. If the styles appeal to you, I think you'll like what you find.

The watch is large but really comfortable. These watches are meant to make a statement. At 47mm wide, I am surprised the piece fits so well on my wrist, but it does. Case is in steel and black PVD coated. Stefan opted for a thin bezel so that you could get maximum dial size. This design is actually quite uncommon on pieces this big. Though at the same time future Stefan Johansson Vaxjo watches are going to have a case and bezel redesign. The smooth looking black case is not the highlight of the piece, and the design makes that clear. The case is good looking and comfy, but like I said, your eyes are pulled toward the dial. The Mark VIII line has quite a lot of dial treatments to choose from. Stefan likes playing with the look. Each has a common personality though, and I think you will appreciate how he plays with the core concept that is the watch. The watches each contain a decorated Swiss ETA automatic Valjoux 7750 chronograph movement. The subsidiary seconds dial at 9 o'clock is removed for a more symmetrical dial. If you need to count the seconds, you can simply use the chronograph.

Compared to many TX watches, the World Time Airport Lounge has a clean looking dial - really. Aside from the stylized map, the subdials on the dial are not too distracting. It has a retrograde GMT hand for the other second time zone, and a summer/winter indicator. Four hands from the center tell the hours, minutes, seconds, and second time zone reference city indicator. The land masses of the dial map are mirror polished. They don't distract much from reading the watch, but the fact that the watch hands are the same color sometimes makes them harder to spot in the dial at a quick glance. Time is actually easier to read when looking at the dial from an angle. I appreciate the Arabic hour numeral around the dial, but wish the watch had more/better lume. For darkness viewing you only have lume tips on the hands that really aren't sufficient.

Greubel Forsey Invention Piece 3 Watch Hands-On Hands-On

Price for the non limited Cuervo y Sobrinos Robusto Buceador 2806 Carbon watch is ,900, and the limited edition Robusto Buceador Melges Edition watch is ,300. How limited is the limited edition? Well, I am really not sure. The watches should be available late Summer 2010.

The Cronoscopio Mark II watch is large at 48.5mm wide and in black steel (case is 200 meters water resistant and the crystal is of course sapphire). Like each of these watches, Anonimo uses a special Drass blackening process for the black toned steel. Note the non black pushers and large crown. I like the easy to read bubble style font that is anything but typical for an "instrument watch," yet does not feel out of place. Inside the watch is a Swiss ETA Valjoux 7750 automatic movement that has the subsidiary seconds dial removed for a bi-compax look. I would normally argue that Anonimo should have given the watch a black disc for the date and date, but the white tone fits here. Otherwise a pretty standard, yet nice watch. The watch also is available in a non-black polished steel version. Price is about ,000.

The watch wouldn't be called the "Golden Square" if it wasn't actually a golden square. The versions I have come across have cases either in 18k rose, yellow, or white gold. Prices for these watches retailed to levels above ,000. On James List there is a version in rose gold with a diamond decorated inner dial for just under ,000.

The Super Sport in carbon fiber weighs about 50kg less than the standard Veyron, and has been tested to have an almost 270mph top speed! The body design is sleeker, and is a gorgeous evolution on an already gorgeous car. Price for the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport car is 1.6 million euros! Wow indeed. How many small villages would you kill for one? The answer is "12," 12 small villages decimated for the Teutonic love child of excess and godliness.

What you really have is a true luxury instrument. It is luxury in the sense excess and lack of necessity are luxurious, but it is a instrument all the same. Marginally useful, but it still has its uses. It is a toy for those who like expensive toys. No one looking for a "men's accessory" is gonna pick up one of these. When I met with Urwerk I think they did tell me the price of the limited edition UR-CC1. To be honest I forgot the price, but at the same time it makes little different. In the healthy six figures, most people can't afford the watch, and that pretty much sums it up. I love that Urwerk does this stuff and works hard to make their dreams real. True micro mechanical geniuses, they create amazing things - perhaps with intentional limited appeal. urwerk.com

New Anonimo Watches For 2010 Watch Releases

The Max Bill watch is what you can call "concrete Bauhaus." I think this term neatly applies to the combo of Bauhaus design with a modern touch that evokes the beginnings of modern architecture from the 1950s and 1960s. Many of these architectural designs that I refer to may look a bit dated by today's standards, but the best pieces from this era both structures and items (like this watch) have a great contemporary relevance. The Max Bill watch was so good because of how functional it was, but still stylish. Undeniably easy to read, attractive, and soothing to the eye. The design did miraculous things with space and felt like something you wanted to wear.

What is really cool about foudroyante watches is what I call the "crazy seconds hand." The hand in the dial that is used to measure the fraction of a second moves like mad around the dial when the chronograph is operating. So in this Zenith El Primero Foudroyante Chronograph watch, the foudroyante dial is the large centrally mounted seconds hand in the middle of the watch. It spins around the entire dial once each second making 10, very brief stops. These complications actually look really cool in action. I have no idea how they don't wear out the movement or fly off the dial. Plus, making the hand stop is really tough. Zenith has indicated that in this watch a special brake is used to ensure that it comes to an immediate halt when you stop the chronograph.

As a classy watch with interesting but subtle character, and a great level of technological sophistication, the Seiko SNR005 is a great choice. There are other models in this collection available with different colors or various complications. If this collection just isn't for you, then you are probably still interested in Seiko Spring Drive. Honestly, the appeal of the movement is hard to resist. There is a growing collection of Spring Drive movement based watches. From Ananta, to Grand Seiko, and others - this is going to be a special marquee for Seiko for the foreseeable future. Yes, the price for Spring Drive watches is more than you might expect from Seiko, but these are really different watches. In my opinion if you upgrade from more mainstream Seiko or Japanese watches to Spring Drive or another high-end Seiko watch, you will be pretty satisfied with your investment. www.seikospringdrive.com, seikousa.com

Further research and miniaturizing of the Duoplan resulted in the development of the Calibre 101. If I were to describe the personality of the movement, I’d say it’s coquettish, complicated and yet completely reliable and extremely desirable. Yep, a perfect engine for a ladies watch. It wouldn’t be hyperbole to say that the Calibre 101 is a watch fit for a queen. In fact, Elizabeth II looped one round her royal wrist on her coronation day in 1953.

If you are a car lover and feel inclined to build your own car one day due to the fact that nothing out there is a specific example of what you want, you are pretty much out of luck (unless you have a spare billion bucks siting around). However, in the watch world, a person with a vision for a specifically styled watch is only limited by their ambition and tenacity. Given a wealth of those two characteristic floating around among watch lovers, it should come as no surprise that there are a fair number of small, indy brands out there that represent these "custom watches." But don't get me wrong, it isn't easy to start your own watch brand. In fact, it is often an expensive and frustrating exercise. Those are come out in the end with a salable product should be congratulated!

It has been a very interesting journey so far with Magrette.  I first reviewed about their Regattare Kupe's Voyage limited edition watch here about a year and half ago, and today I am reviewing their new limited edition Kia Kaha. In just that short time the brand has come a long way from having a good product, to an even better product. It has been fascinating to see brand's product evolve. The Kia Kaha has numerous improvements over older models in terms of refinement and utility. Not that older Magrette watches suffer from significant problems, but rather that customers continue to get more and more for their money. The Kia Kaha shares the same basic theme which makes Magrette watches what they are - a simple, good looking case and dial, combined with beautiful hand-engraved Maori style art.

This watch isn't real... yet. But it likely will be. VicenTerra has an interesting offer for the first 100 people who put down money for one of these interesting GMT-3 watches. If they pre-order, it will cost them only 5,000 Swiss Francs as opposed to the anticipated retail price of 15,000 Swiss Francs. The catch of course is that 100 people need to ante up, and when it comes to watches, we never know just how long it will take for something to reach production - though it usually does.VicenTerra doesn't even have a website yet (that I could find), though they do have a Facebook page here (where you can get more details, etc...).If you are really sold on the brand... they will even sell you stock in the company...

In addition to sharing with you an article I wrote for AskMen.com about the cool IWC Da Vinci Ceramic Chronograph watch, I wanted to share images I took of the watch. It is probably the first IWC Da Vinci watch that I could see myself wearing. The automatic movement is the same as the one used in the new IWC Portuguese Yacht Club Chronograph watch, but the style is totally different. Who would have thought that IWC would have dreamed up a use for ceramic in their typically high-brow Da Vinci collection. A sporty Da Vinci you ask? Well yes, here it is. The unusually shaped tonneau steel case sandwiches black ceramic segments, and there is the pretty cool coated, woven fabric strap. The dial is quite three dimension with lots of areas of interesting and textures. The chronograph is for a full 12 hours, as the upper dial has two hands and is used for the minute and hours. Finishing is great on the piece, and it is such an usual watch in terms of style that people won't know what this wild IWC is. The price is ,600.

Such is the difficulty in working on the Calibre 101 that only a handful of watchmakers have fully mastered the techniques required. What I really like about the Calibre 101 is that by necessity each part has to be tailor-made and adjusted, making each one of the movements a handcrafted piece unique. And, though the movement isn’t a limited edition in the strictest sense, the production is certainly limited, with only 50 able to be made each year.
