Frank Muller Giga tourbillon

Frank Muller Perpetual Calendar

A neat feature is how the time satellite window system is open and you can see right through the Zeit Machine when the rear case flap is open. Aside from the satellites, the dial has a subsidiary seconds dial, day/night indicator and power reserve indicator. On the back of the watch are the amusing, but dubiously useful running indicator and service indicator. On the one hand those features could be seen as whimsical and fun. On the other hand they could be seen as a foreboding message that a several thousand dollar service is coming up, and that if properly maintained the watch will see you to your death... and beyond. Good ol' Swiss craftsmanship.

Rado R-One "Tron" Watch Hands-On Hands-On

To activate the screen you tap it. This is usually done with a finger, but when my hands are full I just tap the watch on my cheek or forehead - that does the trick. When the screen is activated you can then swipe it with your finger up, down, or to the sides. This allows you to access the various screens. All adjustments are done via holding your finger on the screen for a few seconds. The simplicity of using the Slyde is not a let down. I was worried at first that it would have a steep learning curve. Not at all. In just a few minutes you'll learn everything you need to know about it.

The movement is a great looking thing. For one, I love that it is not round but square in design. The caliber DR 19-89 is manually wound with a standard power reserve of 42 hours. I love the various finishes de Grisogono used for the movement parts and surfaces. It looks very nice, but in a modern and unique way. Aside from the time, the movement features a subsidiary seconds dial, power reserve indicator, moon phase indicator, day/night indicator, and date. A central plate in the dial can be spun around to view an additional function with the time.

I was really happy to get my hands on a Patek Philippe Ref. 5235 watch. It apparently wasn't ready in time to show people at Baselworld 2012. Patek shared with me that the reason for this was the dial. There is a specially engraved Patek Philippe name logo that needed to be done just right. The dial is a mostly brushed piece of metal with some fine detailing that I can imagine must have been tough to perfect. The finished version will be very impressive for watch lovers who know what they are looking at. For a Patek Philippe, the dial of the 5235 looks remarkably modern. There is a good reason for that, because in a large way this is one of the most modern Patek Philippe watches released to date.

The Vintage BR pieces have mostly polished cases with polished indicators and hands on the dial. In contrast, the Vintage BR Original models are more military themed with brushed cases and bracelets. Models like this Vintage BR 126 Sport have a bracelet with a polished middle link. The bracelet itself is very well engineered. It is hard to explain, but when you get your hands on it you'll see how it isn't like most other three-link steel bracelets. Over the dial is a sapphire crystal made to look like an old acrylic one. AR coating on the crystal is done well giving the dial a wide viewing range at angles. The case is water resistant to 100 meters.

Hamilton went and made the case of the Hamilton Khaki Navy Pioneer interesting as well. The limited edition version is 46.5mm wide in steel, and has a great looking coined edge bezel and attached lug structure. I like the looped lugs with the case style as well as the light brown leather strap. It looks very handsome on the wrist. Inside the limited edition version of the watch is a manually wound Swiss ETA UNITAS 6498 movement. Hamilton uses a decorated mid range version of the 6498 that can be seen in the case when you detach it from the strap module.

I asked to review one of their simpler watches, but when Rich countered by offering me a 160 to review, I jumped at the chance.

Little touches make the V3 watch what it is. Whether it is the great lume or neat sapphire glass tinting, it is the sense of effort that helps LUM-TEC watches remain popular. A good example is the strap. LUM-TEC could have just gone with a simple leather strap. Instead they created a unique quasi pilot watch strap with a rivet and interesting look to compliment the case (the watch also comes with a rubber strap). By all means, check out other V Series watches via LUM-TEC's website to see what else they have done with the design. Price for this non-limited edition piece is 5 and you can get it via LUM-TEC's website here.

Ralph Lauren Stirrup Chronograph Watch Review Wrist Time Reviews

Inside of the RGM 801 Aircraft is their in-house made caliber 801 manually wound movement. At first glance you'll notice the excellent finishing of the beautiful mechanism. Most of the watch's value is in the movement and RGM does not let you down. Distinct from Swiss movements, the caliber 801 feels inspired from old pocket watch movements. It has 19 jewels and operates at 18,000 beats per hour. According to RGM, you can get it in a rhodium or gold plated finish. The large blued screws and red synthetic rubies are a highlight of the movement's design. Price for the RGM 801 Aircraft watch is ,400.
