Marvin Loeb Rally Collection Watches Watch Releases

Many inexpensive watches of yore were disposable commodities, like a modern Timex. Most were poorly made and were not at all impressive in terms of function or finishing. But with the emergence of quartz and the subsequent elevation of mechanical movements people are now viewing any mechanical watch as a luxury piece, no matter how awful it really is. Blame eBay and Antiques Roadshow for making people think that any old piece of junk is a potential fortune. Most people who get burned by the vintage market fall into the trap of buying junk, or are seduced by franken-pieces / fakes due to lack of research. I’ll admit that collecting vintage is not for the faint of heart and requires a lot of background information — which I find is most of the fun.

Tudor Mini Sub watches

First of all, let me tell you that there is a watch giveaway in this podcast episode. You'll need to listen and then comment on the HourTimeShow.com website to enter for a chance to win.

GSX is the brand and all the pieces are officially licensed from Capcom. The watches comes in different forms and some are more fancy than others. The collection features both Japanese quartz and mechanical movements. Some of the earlier watches were more of what you'd expect from such a partnership - meaning really basic watches with Resident Evil logos or imagery on them. The best pieces however are ones that look like you'd actually find them in the game. These watches have STARS logos on them as well as other Resident Evil imagery.

As it must hold a larger chronograph movement, the case is a rather thick 15mm. You can see via the diagram here in this article how the case is put together. The middle section and bezel holding the movement is like a barrel with the decorative structure placed around it.

Detailing on the cases and bracelets has never been better. As a "refreshed" Royal Oak, you'll see a few changes other than just 2 extra millimeters added on to the case size. Let's start with the Selfwinding 41mm. Inside the watch is the Audemars Piguet caliber 3120 automatic movement with a nice new 18k gold rotor. The rotor is engraved with a new design and looks very nice through the sapphire caseback window. The beautiful caliber also features a 60 hour power reserve. It does only run at 3 hertz, and moving forward I would like to see AP put a new movement in their Royal Oak that is a bit more modern and that operates at 4 hertz (or more!). That would give the seconds hand a smoother motion and arguably more accuracy. You can't complain about the movement looks however.

Replica Patek Philippe Calatrava

I learned a few things about Piaget when I visited with them in Geneva recently that I didn't know. I did know that Piaget has been making watch movements for a really long time, but I did not know that they only made watch movements until the 1940s. Piaget would make a movement for other brands to put in those brand's watches. A lot of the time Piaget didn't even get to puts its name on the movement. In the 1940s Piaget started to makes its own timepieces and history was made. In fact, some people think of Piaget as only a jewelry maker - when in fact, that division has always come well after their heritage of being a watch movement maker.

Rolex Oyster Perpetual

Like the originals they have plexiglass crystals, 100 meters of water resistance, and a cool black and faded yellow look to the dials. The straps on the new models are meant to be reminiscent of the woven fabric straps of the originals. Today they are done in a textured black leather.

People who need a lot of data at a glance will appreciate this watch a lot. Those wanting to see mainly the time might prefer another Pro Trek piece because the time is not in the center of the dial on the home screen - though it is prominent enough. Casio's continuous improvement and attention to their electronic gadget watches is always impressive and the watches just keep getting better. They are also inexpensive enough to upgrade each few years. In black resin the PRW2500-1 retails for a fair 0 while its titanium sibling the PRW2500T-7 is 0. Fancier or more colorful version likely exist in the Japanese domestic market. All in all a great - yet subtle - evolution for the world's greatest gadget watch collection. Keep 'em coming Casio.

The watch is heavy enough that I only wore it on rubber straps. That brings the weight down to a very comfortable 135g, light enough that I wore it biking, playing ultimate and day to day.

It is amusing how often I hear about watch movements that took years to get working. Amusing in the sense that a team would spend so much time on a "problem" that already has been solved, but they want to do so in a "different way." Meaning that they must design a new watch movement to tell the time, but make it just different enough to "call their own." In today's world highly trained micro mechanical engineers plot out models for new watch movements and modules on computers before they are ever made. This process can take years. Especially if the desire exists for something unique or complications that are difficult to make.
