Despite the skeletonization on the dial, the watch is easy to read. This is in part thanks to the large lume covered hands, as well as the fact that there are still small indicators on the minute marker ring around the dial. You can tell from the images that the lume on this watch is really bright. It will take some getting used to that not all the hour markers are presents, but you will adjust, and simply realize that this is part of the watch's personality. Case stainless steel case is hefty at roughly 43mm wide. The relatively thin and sloped bezel helps make the case appear larger, while the sapphire crystal is also cute with a slight slope on its edges to match the slope of the bezel. This is a nice touch, and something I've not seen before.

Out of all the flowers out there - and believe, there are many - Perrelet went with the Lotus Flower. I believe, given their history of manufacturing watches for women, that this was the perfect selection. As the Lotus Flower traditionally represents sexual purity - virtue - divine beauty - and most importantly - the expansion of the soul.
The watch that Jonathan Osterman wears before his transformation is unlabeled and really could be many things - even a Timex. The Timex that gets some nice screen time is a 1980s model from when your standard Timex watch had a bit more style. Actually, Timex has made a comeback in the recent years with some interesting models, but still is the proprietor of some fugly low-end watches in my book. I am going to give fugly a new definition here: functional ugly = fugly. For this article I don't have images of the watches, but I am going to attach an image of another vintage Timex watch that has a similar tapered date window as the one in the movie. I'll attached images if and when I am able to discover some.
The movements all start with base materials. That material is mostly an alloy called German Silver, which does not actually contain any silver. The alloy is a mix of nickel, copper, and zinc. It is favored as being durable while workable, and because it oxidizes nicely with a slight yellow tint. The German Silver comes to Lange in round plates or little rectangles, almost everything is based on originating from these plates. If another material is needed in the movement (such as gold) it too comes in some base plate form if it is to be machined at the Lange Uhren.
There are four watches in collection with two dial colors and varying metals. The cases are large at 47mm wide. Each model has a fair amount of titanium and steel, while a few (such as the one pictured) also have rose gold built into the complex case construction (made up of 48 pieces). Each of the watch variations will be limited to just 60 pieces. Inside the watch is the LM05 automatic movement made specially for Louis Moinet. I appreciate that the movement is an automatic, and you can see the nice Cotes de Jura engraving on the movement and integrated into the rotor seamlessly. Looking in the face of the watch you see the guys of the retrograde complication which is mainly a large star gear, and a spring to shoot the hand band into position after each ten circulations of another gear. Despite this, I am not concerned that the movement is "too" complex - which is the case with many such movements and can be prone to damage. I have a hunch that the Tempograph will be relatively hardy.
This should be no problem for the woman wearing this, though, as I doubt she is someone who sits still a lot. A woman who owns an RSW Moonflower goes wherever she wants. And this is one timepiece that is up for a challenge.
Such watches are not unreadable of course (just for people who aren't wearing the watch). To compensate for similar colors of black, the watches have different textures and other mechanisms to help with legibility. Part of the 'point' of the watch is making it difficult for people other than the wearer to know what time it is (or what watch they are wearing). I have to admit that a lot of the watches are pretty cool looking. Still pretty easy to read (on your own wrist), you will no doubt get a lot of people saying "hey, what is with you watch? Let me see that." The watch which this Black Stealth limited edition is based on is one of Sinn's newer diving watches, the U1. With a uniquely designed dial and hands, it is certainly of the most fashion (but still functional) oriented Sinn watches out there.

Living with the Expedition WS4 watch is pretty easy. While big, it is relatively comfortable (the wrap around strap helps this greatly. . The watch is easy to read, and Timex's Indiglo illumination makes it easy to read in the dark. On the back of the watch is an easy to use battery replacement compartment - which uses CR2430 batteries that can be bought at most drugstores, meaning you don't need to visit a watch repair place to get a new battery. I believe that the crystal over the screen is mineral crystal, while the watch is water resistant to 50 meters.
Last year Basel saw the Certina DS 1 release to a lot of happy watch lovers. It was a entry level priced handsome watch with the build quality and parts that the Swatch Group is able to provide (usually pretty good). Quality is a bit up from Hamilton, another Swatch Group brand. The standard DS 1 watch has an ETA 2824-2 movement, while this new chronograph version will have a Valjoux 7750. This might be one of the best priced watches to be available with the highly desirable work-horse automatic chronograph movement.

Recently, the Gerald Genta designed classic Patek Philippe Nautilus watch underwent a modern re-sizing. Up to about 43mm wide, the new size of the classic looking diving reinvigorates the watch's character. I must admit that I was not taken by the Nautilus design when I first viewed it a few years back. It looked too simple, and a bit dated. It is of course a design from the 1970s. The long and thin rounded hands and hour markers felt basic, and the horizontal texturing on the dial was something I wasn't used to. Revisiting the style of the watch a few years after first viewing it, I love it. There must be something about looking at 1000s of watch designs and then coming back to something honestly well put together that garners appreciation. I now give credit to Patek Philippe and Gerald Genta for what is a timeless and original look. You might compare the look of the Nautilus to Audemars Piguet's Royal Oak watch. This is no coincidence as they both share Gerald Genta as the designer.
Functions for the watch are: a rattrapante (split-time) or second timezone, 12 hour chronograph, date, and of course time. The watch case is fantastic looking made of three materials - stainless steel, grade 5 titanium, and 18k rose gold. There are two dial color options available (silver or black). The layout and design of the dial are all meant to inspire a sense of 19th century mechanical gauge futurism, and are based on original Louis Moinet designs. Hands with arrow tips are clear and unpretentious, but tasteful. The case reminds me of a 1970s diver's watch case in all its 46.3mm wide glory. Inside the watch is an automatic mechanical movement exclusive to the models. The strap is crocodile with carbon finishing. Of course a luxury watch like this does not come cheap. Expect prices for this very limited watch to be between ,000 - ,000.
It is getting to the point where I write more than anything else, but that is OK because I love it. Eventually some of you will need to help contribute to keep all my content bases covered. My newest area of watch passion expression is Examiner.com. The fare is arguably lighter, but is for a slightly different audience - still the talk is on watches. Examiner.com will need no introduction to some, but is basically a large news and opinion site where writers of different focuses and specializations are selected and given dedicated pages. I've been selected as the Men's Luxury Style writer for San Francisco, which essentially means that I will be talking about watches. Though when related luxury style items come up, I am sure I will mention them ("but watches are all that I know!").
