Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra XXL Small Seconds Watch

October 30, 2010 by · 1 Comment 

Tweet Pretty much any new Omega watch with the word “Speedmaster or Seamaster” will get lots of consumer attention. Especially in China where Omega is currently enjoying particularly high demand.  New in the Seamaster Aqua Terra collection is this Seamaster Aqua Terra XXL Small Seconds watch. While I like this piece, I am utterly distracted [...]

Prime Time Prime Numbers Watch

October 25, 2010 by · Leave a Comment 

There’s nothing math geeks like better than prime numbers (well maybe Pi but not much else). There’s no need to constrain your watch to the standard one through twelve when you can do it a little geekier by just showing the primes. The Prime Time Prime Numbers Watch shows the prime numbers in bold and [...]

Fred Gladiateur Collector Timepiece: Nice Watch, Silly Name

October 22, 2010 by · Leave a Comment 

Tweet Fred makes a decent looking timepiece, but is highly amusing in a “lost in translation” sort of manner. The name of the brand “Fred” – which isn’t new, does not exactly evoke a sense of luxury confidence to the English speaking ear.

The Eric Janssen designed wristwatch has a dial that is rotated clockwise by 30 degrees. Which begs the question, can [...]

Avant garde, but oddly classic – this is the new Angular Momentum Classic Baton Diamond. It comes in two dial colors, with their a silver or ruthenium dial. The dial has a “crater” shape to it that make it like a bowl. With the applied baton hour indexes on the periphery of the dial. Nicely [...]
