Let me introduce a new model to the Oceanus line up, the OCWM800TBA-1A Super Chronograph. The M800 features everything you would expect from Oceanus in an attractive package designed to compliment the avid traveler in both function and form.
Watch makers like to attach themselves to cars whenever possible. Not that watches are like cars, but the idea is that people who appreciate cars can probably also appreciate watches. I have an idea why that is. Most cars can take you from "a to point b." Likewise, most watches will tell you the time. It is up to the connoisseur to make a determination on whether a specific car or watch performs its function well. That is the difference, and most of you know the pleasure of driving a car that takes pleasure in driving.
So when one of these watches, especially one in superb condition becomes available. I want to mention it. You can totally go to Marcelloc-watches.com and get a brand new one. It would be worth every penny of the 0 price, but there is one on eBay, starting at 0 with a buy it now of 0 which is just a great deal. And you know how much I love mentioning a good deal. For those of you that miss out on this watch on eBay, you should have no qualms about getting a new one. It is the best value you can find for a excellent quality Rolex Submariner style dive watch. For those of you that don't know, Marcello C. is an impressive German watch company whose founder came from Oris watches.Read more ›
Take a look at this aerial view of Glashutte. This is no city, and barely a town. Regardless, this hamlet is world famous for producing mechanical items of fascination unique to the region, steeped in literally centuries of tradition. I'll be taking my camera along with me, so stay tuned for a full expose. Oh, and don't expect the region to look as green in my photos. Remember, it is currently a cold winter in eastern Germany, and this California boy has little to no experience in such climates. So get ready to hear me talk about the definitive source of German luxury watch making, the A. Lange & Sohne manufacture, the people behind it, and mechanical wonders they produce.
The moon cutaway is one of the best aspects of the Orbis Signifier collection. They are a prefect way to tell the time and stick with the theme of the watch. Using the middle of the moon, you line up the disc and read the time. Perhaps not 'to the minute' precision, but pretty good. I really love the execution of the idea, and depending on the orientation and zodiac image on the watch, the moon is placed in a different position. Without attempting to state the obvious, the twelve watches in the Orbis Signifier Collection are: Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, Aries, and Pisces. Each watch is unique and the entire collection together is really lovely. Expect prices to be reasonable at a few thousand dollars. Another nice offering from Angular Momentum that is worth taking a look at.
Then you have a distinct Rolex Submariner influence in this watch. For one, you have the bracelet which is a Swiss Army take on the classic three-link steel bracelet. One of the most successful bracelet designs ever created, and well utilized here. Then there are the hour markers on the watch dial. Now you know you are in Rolex territory. Replace the Swiss Army logo with a Rolex crown, and you'd not be able to distinguish the two very easily. To Swiss Army's benefit they wisely decided to make the hour markers raised units that are attached to the dial with a thick amount of luminant, similar to how Rolex does it. I have no problem with Swiss Army using this tested and approved design and layout that for whatever reason, makes for an extremely legible watch.Read more ›
This is one of the rarest Xemex XE 5000 watches out there, and perhaps the most interesting. This is Xemex trying to be even more avant garde and succeeding. The XE 5000 line of Xemex watches was intended to be a higher budget Offroad, and offered complex chronograph and standard three hand models in various flavors.

Each watch has a thick leather strap. The Square has a standard buckle clasp, which the Cameo has a folding deployment clasp. The ETA 2892 in the Cameo is a higher quality movement than the ETA 2836 in the Square, though the 2892 does not have a day of the week complication. Notice that the date disc in the Temption is colored to match the dial color, while the Fortis uses the standard white color of the date and day discs. Given these fact as well and the higher costs in case construction, the Temption Cameo is a more expensive watch, but not by too much, and the value is there. The little details in the Temption certainly make for a more designer looking watch, though I have little to complain about with the Fortis Square. Unlike the Fortis, the Temption has a perfectly square sapphire crystal that is much harder to attach to the case, whereas the Fortis has a square shaped crystal that has rounded edges. You'll further notice the cabochon gem in the Temption crown, while Fortis has a signed crown.Read more ›
The Prix Officiel de la Revue des Montres 2008 named this Girard Perregaux the most beautiful woman's watch of the year for 2008. The official watch review or not, I don't agree that this is the most beautiful woman's watch of the year. It certainly is well made and designed beautifully, but not the best in my opinion. That would probably go to something else, perhaps a Piaget or Breguet. Hope you had a happy shopping season!
There are only a few thousand Tiffany & Co. Streamerica watches in circulation, and this one is in exception condition. I love the white glove treatment in the pictures. You can clearly see how beautifully crafted the case is in the images. Actually the watch is not too large, but almost midsized by today's standards. The case is just shy of 40mm wide, and less than 14mm thick. In addition to looking stellar, the case and bracelet are designed with comfort in mind. Having no sharp edges, but still looking crisp, the watch is comfortable to wear, but not cheap looking by any means. Sharp angles tend to be a sign of quality craftsmanship, but also can be uncomfortable if they dip into your skin. I've worn a Tiffany & Co. Streamerica and can attest to its ability to satisfy all wrist requirements.Read more ›
It's true. Get this watch for your special lady and she won't have anything to complain about. If she does, then I'd suggest giving the watch to another woman...any other woman. Say you are an uptight guy, and saying those three little words doesn't come as easy as you would like. Maybe the whole tone of the Hallmark-iday just doesn't leave a romantic taste in your mouth. Well you can buy your way out of this pickle, because dammit, she is going to expect too many loving words after receiving this gift. So why I am posting this ON Valentine's day? A little to late you think. Well you will need to mull this one over until next year maybe cause it is certainly an investment. Or maybe you didn't get anything yet today and probably need to buy yourself out of some femme-anger.
I can hear you collectively rejoicing out there Citizen Campanola lovers. This is one of the nicest Campanola watches I have seen in a long time and represents two things. First, a beautiful cream colored dial with the signature Citizen Campanola high quality application with rich textures and deep gloss. I have a feeling its hard to truly appreciate the face of this watch without seeing it. There is almost a sunburst pattern in the design. The cream colored dials are very new and only began production this year.
I could not find the name of this new Laco watch. Perhaps if I spoke German that would be possible or I am just too lazy to write to Roger Ruegger, from who excellent (German) website I found the picture. No doubt I will discover it soon enough and update this article, I hope. Roger, like myself is a great lover of diving watches, and happened to snap this image while at Basel World (2008) in April. I have always had a fondness for Laco watches, and this one seemed particularly attractive.Read more ›
