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.
Adding to the versatility of this watch are the luminescent hour, minute and central seconds hands. This is particularly helpful for women who are out on the town at night - in a club - and need to track time. No excuses what not knowing the time, though...
This is pretty cool actually. For those of you who have an Amazon Kindle e-ink device, you can now get aBlogtoRead.com sent directly to your device. Many people rely on their Kindles for reading material when they are not at home and when they are on the go. The ingenious device uses wireless phone network signals to send and receive data from the devices. In fact, that part of the system is free once you get a Kindle. In addition to books, the Kindle has magazines, newspapers, and now blogs available. You can browse the catalog on the go, and get whatever you want delivered to you automatically, all the time.

Most importantly, I truly believe that Danica wears this watch. Proudly. And not just to events, but when she's on the track or at a barbecue or listening to country music... Whenever. She's rocks it.
Appreciating the Maitres du Temps Chapter Two watch gets even easier seeing stunning live video of the watch. Founder and owner Steven Holtzman discusses the luxury timepiece in this new video by aBlogtoRead.com content partner TheTimeTv.com. He takes a good approach to discussing the "volume" line (still only about 200 a year) of Maitres du Temps watches compared to the ultra exclusive Chapter One watch. The video is worth a view not only because of the discussion, but also because of the crafty video of the watch itself. You really get a good feel for the curves, the beauty, the finish, and the boldness of the dial. It keeps getting better looking each time I see it.

The Pazzola Giant Alarm watch, is not exactly "giant" in size, but it is big for the company as it is their first mechanical alarm watch that is skeletonized and features a alarm time disc. The movement is the manually-wound, MC 96.1, 12 calibre with CÃ´tes de Genève polished bridges, circular-grained lower plates, and a 38-hour power reserve. Mechanical alarm watches have never been the loudest in my opinion, but the striking mechanism does sounds charming. One of the two crowns is used to set the alarm time, while the other is used for the regular time. The hands are easy to read and are applied with Super LumiNova, which is good. Overall quality of the watch is at the top of the scale for the brand. The grained leather strap uses a satefy buckle, and the square look of the watch is handsome. Prices for the Pazzola Giant alarm watch will be around 1500 - 3000 Swiss Francs.
I am excited to see what else comes from this brand as they are positioning themselves very well, in my opinion. Too often brands get caught up in trends and competing with each other that the very art of innovation gets lost. I hope that RSW continues to move forward with blinders on, creating their own real path.
As I mentioned, this watch is fitted with a slide-ruler. Back before electronic calculators were en vogue (admittedly before my time), people needed slide rules to do mathematical calculations they didn't feel like doing on paper. Breitling was of the first (or the first) to fit their watch with a slide-ruler in the bezel. If you are trained properly, the slide ruler can calculate a number of important things. To operate the slide-rule, you simple unscrew the crown located at the 4 o'clock position and use it to spin the internal slide-rule ring. The action is quite smooth, and nice to use. Still, I admit that I'll most likely never use the slide ruler, though it is cool to have. Watch designers have long since realized that adding a lot of little numbers around the periphery of a watch face makes it look cool, and more technical. I admit the trick works here as well, and to Orient's benefit, they decided that instead of just placing little numbers for no reason, they would be at least useful if you wished to use them. I don't think any of you are going to buy this watch because of the slide-rule, but you at least appreciate that it is there.
Receiving aBlogtoRead.com on your Kindle is not free, but it is very cheap. Getting aBlogtoRead.com sent automatically each day to your Kindle with each new post costs .99 a month. Overall really cheap I think. What Amazon does is transform the website into an e-ink version that looks pretty cool, and it will automatically get each new post directly to your device. The Kindle is about to get it's third device, the Kindle DX. This version is similar to the Kindle 2, but has a larger 9.7 inch screen, as opposed to the 6 inch screen. If you've never played with a Kindle, they are pretty cool, and addictive. A real good tech toy, even for those people who aren't into tech stuff.
Perrelet, a seemingly quiet brand with TONS of potential, is going beyond print ads and marketing materials with this elegant video of the Perrelet Diamond Flower Rotor Watch. Which is a brilliant idea, especially for this model.
Visiting Switzerland and Germany especially, two great nations that have contributed vastly to watchmaking advancements, I saw first-hand how passionate other cultures are about timepieces. There, more so than here in the U.S., I saw how watches are esteemed as great fashion pieces and how essential they are to a man's wardrobe. Especially in Hamburg and Geneva, where the top watch brands are found on nearly every corner. I came to appreciate the diversity and distinctions between the greatest brands and saw how there is one for every walk of life.
In a nutshell, the watch has a very thin profile steel 40mm wide case (without the diminutive crown), with a handsome looking mesh steel bracelet. With it’s thin bezel, the watch face looks very large, even though the size of the watch is only in the upper medium range. I think the size is perfect actually. The dial has a lot of grazing space for your eyes, but also has a nice circular arrangement of Arabic numerals. This makes it one of the more legible Skagen watches in my opinion. The dial is slate (gray) colored with some vertical texturing when you look closely (actually brushed metal), and the applied hour makers and hands are chromed, and raised just a bit.
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!").
Here's a profile of a man who is an aficionado of watches, an accomplished American Bass-Baritone opera-star, and a rising star on Broadway.
The Perrelet Diamond Flower watch featured above is breathtaking, and is versatile not only in its manufacturing but its options. Solid stainless steel - solid rose gold - or two-tone (steel and gold). Whether it be the cream dial with diamonds, red indices, and rubies - or blue with diamonds and sapphires - or rose gold with a chocolate dial and diamonds - there is a model to fit your own color palette.
The Tourbillon Steampunk Ala Grande really has no dial. Instead the watch has exposed springs and rods meant to remind you of a ship's engine room. This watch is for boating steampunk enthusiasts. Again, think of what the engine room on the titanic must have looked like. You have to admit the look of the face is pretty cool - though it is all for style. The large Roman numeral 12 doesn't really help much to tell the time. While the large hands are coated with Superluminova, you aren't going to be relying on this watch as your trusty timepiece for when you've downed too much Absinthe and are trying to figure out when you need figure out when the sun is coming up.
