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.

More on the Orient CDD00001W pocket watch from Orient USA here.
Would you consider Q-Bert part of pop culture? Aside from the weird drawings of the characters the game was more or less forgettable by today's standards - though it was fun at the time. Regardless, I think it would have been cool to see the "Dr. Seuss character gone wrong," bouncing around on the dial of this new luxury Breguet Classique Ref. 5967 watch. Someone in Switzerland right now - likely working at the Swatch Group - just spit in my general direction. Can you do anything but picture that right now? Talk about a new kind of complication! OK, maybe you don't know about Q-Bert or don't care. This is still a new "visual dial enhancement" from Breguet. This is their new "Art Deco Damier" guilloche machine engraving pattern and is first used on this new Ref. 5967 watch. Boy does it look handsome right?Read more ›
Inside the watch is the Tag Heuer Caliber 11 automatic movement that is an ETA automatic with a Dubois-Depraz chronograph module on top of it. You can see the movement lightly decorated through the sapphire caseback of the watch. Placing the crown on the left side of the case work because the automatic winding of the watch makes it so that you don't have to wind the watch. Attached to the watch will be a matching perforated alligator strap. They look quite cool with the dial.

The SpidoLite SA is the most expensive of the bunch at over ,000 (9,800 eur0s). Other versions without the Svend Andersen treatment go for less down to about ,000 (6,600 euros). You can check out the full Linde Werdelin SpidoLite collection here. For the person who enjoys as satisfying artistic timepiece that don't make a point of being "art," the SpidoLite is far and away a good choice if you are as taken with the design as I am.
Kudoke's 69 eros watch collection will be in a limited edition of just... yes, 69 pieces. The steel case is 42mm wide, and I am not sure of the movement used. Looks like a Unitas that has been heavily skeletonized, but I am not sure. The engraving and perlage on the movement plate and bridges makes for a good look, and the overall watch is a proud point for the collection. Price for each of the pieces is 7,680 euros.

No sports watch would be complete without a comfortable and totally durable rubber watch strap. Being that this is from Swarovski, of course, there are six crystals accenting the watch strap, to complete the overall aesthetic of fun (there is a full bracelet available as well). My one concern about those crystals, though, is how comfortable/durable they would be while wearing this... If it's a sport watch, it must be able to hold up in more extreme conditions. I would have to test this out to know for sure - but I doubt I would keep this on while, say, working out or hiking.Read more ›
Please be aware right now that this is a watch best suited to larger wrists. For one thing, the strap is pretty large, even at the smallest hole, the strap is for at least medium to large wrists. The attractive leather strap with the reptile print embossing and honey brown color is comfy and nice to look at. It has a steel push-button butterfly deployment clasp with a nice Jorg Gray signature on it. If the strap is too large on you, it should be possible to make another hole in the strap with an awl (for those of you who know what you are doing, otherwise take it to a pro).
The real jewel again is the Cargo Limited Edition Spaceleader. I really am liking this watch. Even the minute hand is asymmetric (look closely at it), while the hour hand is skeletonized. I like not only the contrast between the polished metal and black rubber casing, but also that curves of the case mixed with the sharp angles of the dial. The rubber used is the very high quality caoutchouc (spelled various ways) rubber that is hard and durable, but also flexible enough to be comfortable. The pushers on the 43mm wide case are long and easy to depress even when using gloves, while the dial is a modern looking exemplar of clarity. Just a great looking face. Notice the curved chapter ring that adds depth to the dial.

Indulge in a venerable orgy of carbon fiber as it caresses your wrist and arouses your eyes. I just made myself laugh with that last comment. But really, for carbon fiber watch lovers, you'll be happy to know Bell & Ross is there for you. In more ways one - case, strap, and dial. New in this BR01 limited edition watch collection are two all carbon fiber watch. The BR01-92 (three hand) and BR01-94 (chronograph). You'll further notice that the watches pick up the "Pro" styling that was first seen in the BR01-94 Pro Titanium watch discussed here.
Like the Gucci Marina Chain Watch, above, introduced at this year's Gucci Women's Cruise fashion show. In the context of a fashion show, this watch works. And in this promo shot below, it definitely fits in. The iconic logo bag - the neutral color palette - the lush fabrics... But, for everyday wear - I do not see this as a wearable watch.Read more ›
I have been fascinated with this Breguet watch model since I wrote an article on Luxist a while ago about how it was seen on the wrist of Russian president Dmitri Medvedev. By the way, the above image is from Antiquroum via this webpage here. You can blame Breuget for not having enough images of their watches floating around the internet. So you probably know that Breuget is the king of "old school" watch brands. The love of Swatch Group kingpin (Chairman) Nicolas Hayek, and founder way back when by the father of modern watch making. Abraham Louis Breguet himself. The brand keeps mulling forth with classic watch creations that refuse to modernize - and that is a good thing.

I don't think your name or information will need to be used if you are written about, so don't worry about that. To share your stories you can either comment on this post or contact me here. Many of you have had issues with watch companies if you've had to deal with them directly. My position has always been that watch companies are great at making watches, but often poor in other areas. Work like this helps to improve the companies that make the things we love. I am looking forward to hearing from you, and thanks for helping out on this project.
Other nice details include the round date windows for the black colors date disc, and the large carefully made crowns. You really can't beat the perforated leather strap with the hint of color on the side for that real 70's racing feeling. I can't decide whether I am a bigger fan of the orange or green trim on the watches. Maybe the green? It is certainly more subdued than the orange. An interesting option is the rose gold version of the 42mm wide case, which is otherwise in steel. That takes a reasonably priced cool watch of -4k into a territory that I am not sure about. Why does it exist in my opinion? For 70s era enthusiasts who have reached the level of "I don't buy anything but gold or platinum watches."
I would have loved to be an automotive journalist in the early 1990s. One of the most momentous occasions of the decade was the release of the Lexus LS400, as well as the overall Lexus brand lowering into our lives like a gleaming vessel from mother-ship Toyota. The LS400 was the car that journalists said should make the Europeans fear the Japanese. It was more than just something for them to take notice , it was a justifiable alternative to European luxury cars, and a much better value.Read more ›
