Tudor Pelagos watches
The Series 3 meanwhile, is currently under development and will be launched next year. The long term plan, as Roger described it, is to develop a range of different models and build up a body of work that fully expresses the Daniels method and something that he can be proud of.
Probably the stand-out version of the Son of Sound watch so far is the "English" version with the Union Jack motif on the dial. It is going to be hard for aging British rockers to resist those pieces. The dial has a large minute hand, and a disc to display the minutes. There are rather small chronograph subdials, as well a centrally mounted chronograph seconds hand. The lower part of the dial has the date. At least on the Son of Sound Chronograph models ArtyA promised that each of the tuning peg crowns has a function.
Jean-Claude Biver is a living legend in the watch industry. If you are someone in the industry you either admire him, are jealous of him, or perhaps dislike him. Nevertheless you know him and know he is important. One thing most people can say about Biver is that he speaks loudly, passionately, and often exaggerates a bit (though I don't think he believes that). At least when he is talking about one of his brands - which has been Hublot for the last decade or so.
CX Swiss Military watches are produced by Charmex in Switzerland. We've long since been a fan of their sometimes quirky, and sometimes very cool military style sport watches. Today we are going to review a yachting timer, the Typhoon. To this day one of my all-time favorite timepieces is the Swiss Military 20,000 Feet Diver (aBlogtoWatch review). While decidedly silly, the 20,000 Feet Diver was an excellent watch. While its intended purpose will never be needed by mere mortal humans, it is wonderfully executed as being about as good a watch as could be expected with an ultra thick case in titanium meant for hanging out on the bottom of the ocean. Today we change direction to look at a watch meant to be used closer to the water's surface, also in titanium. The Typhoon follows the legacy of the 20,000 Feet Diver in combining function with a bit of designer fun.
