Speedy Tuesday – Gold Speedmaster Overview Continued (1995 - now)

I am adding a few images of two RM016 watches that I got to model myself. Showing you the size and presence of the watch. The case which is mostly flat and curved at the edges with a recessed center like a ice cream sandwich is 38mm wide and 49.8mm tall. Also thin (of course) at about 8.25mm thick. The watches I have on are still wrapped in plastic. By the way, I checked those watches out at Chatel in Carmel-by-the-Sea, CA. The specific version I am mentioning on James List is the white gold version, but the watch looks good in both tones, and is handsome on a variety of straps. Really one of Richard Mille's most universal designs.

Or you could just share why you love the Digital Hour Clock Black so much and want one.

As nature survival series go, Man vs. Wild is pretty entertaining. I often want the show to be longer, showing more detailed elements of survival in harsh areas of the world without relying on most of the "tools of civilization" we rely on. I've also been getting into another survival show called Apocalypse Man (on the History Channel). This show is similar in concept, but sort of the reverse. The guy here wears a Nike digital watch I am pretty sure, but at the end of the show in the credits, there is a clear message thanking Casio. Maybe the crew has them. Apocalypse man is all about a guy trying to survive in a post apocalyptic world. He is in cities, but they are totally devoid of people. So he has to scavenge and build things - it is pretty cool. Sad and sort of humorous is that the cities he is in that are all ghost town are probably in Louisiana (post Katrina) and in Michigan. What the shows have in common aside from the survivalist slant, is that they are both "looking for other people." Bear is looking to get rescued while the Apocalypse man is just looking for other (friendly) humans. I do recommend it if you get a chance to see it. That of course goes for both shows.

Most all of his watches are good to own. You might like some more than others, but here is a nicely designed good value timepiece that reminds me of a more refined Montblanc timepiece. Funny how both Martin Braun and Montblanc are often appreciated to "MB." This is the steel and black version of the Brand Chrono watch.  It is 42mm wide and has a Swiss ETA Valjoux 7750 automatic movement in it. I love the vertical column engraving on the side of the case - always a classy touch. You also have the Breguet style numerals on the dial as well as circular engraving in the middle of the dial. You can't see it in the images here, but the back of the watch has an sapphire exhibition caseback.

A couple of basic rules. You can only enter once. You must comment with a valid e-mail address where you can be reached. Your comment must be confirmed and approved. You must complete the objectives to be considered. You are responsible for providing your contact shipping information if you are chosen.

Thoughts On The Confrerie Horlogere La Clef du Temps Tourbillon Watch Watch Releases

This was a very interesting and informative video (translated to English from French) that recently came out from the FHH about enamel work on watches, and the four various types of techniques that are primarily used for watch dials. Many of us don't even recognize enamel art on watches - or cannot appreciate what goes into it. It is very tough work done by highly skilled (and patient) master artists who have been doing it for years. To get it just right on a watch dial can take a few tries as there is always risk involved in not only the actual painting, but also the 800 degree plus baking process. Most watches with "paintings" on them utilize enamel. This is because enamel lasts a long time, is hardy, will not fade, and has extremely bold and beautiful looks when done well. There is also the concept that a master worker hand-loved the dial of the watch and now you get to wear it.

1. Comment on this post below with your valid e-mail address where required. In the body of your comment should mention why you need a watch winder or why you prefer Orbita watch winders.

The watch would have to be large. Likely on par with the dimensions of a Cabestan watch - similar in shape as well. The movement would be manually wound and of course would need to be custom made. Problem of course is power. The segment of the case with the Virtual Ideas logo could theoretically house the movement, but it would need to have some clever machinery to house a manually wound movement that could have enough power to operated the large telescopic arms. With some effort, the watch could be pulled off though. I can't image a price however for a watch like this that would be under 0,000 if it was mechanical movement based. More details on novel Virtual Ideas concept watches as they become available. If you are, or are part of a watch maker and want to Virtual Ideas to work with you, simply go to their site (link above) and contact them.

Ball Engineer Hydrocarbon Spacemaster X-Lume Watch Watch Releases

Watch maker Martin Braun recently announced that he is going to go independent from the Franck Muller Group (who are financially in horrid shape right now). Why is Martin able to do this? Because his watches are popular enough and also a good value. Not sure about the minor details about his going independent, but is certainly happening, and the new batch of watches are coming out in about 6 months from now. I had the opportunity to meet with Mr. Braun personally once. He is a nice guy and really into watch making. Has a good eye for detail, and is more of an artist and technician than business man in my opinion (a good thing).

Panerai did an impressive job with their Ceramic compound, but an even more impressive job with their work on the dial making the PAM 348 a really cool looking timepiece. You might not know this, but Panerai has a special form of single axis tourbillon that spins on a diagonal axis each 30 seconds that makes it much more fun to watch. Inside the watch is the in-house made Panerai P.2005/S movement. It is manually wound with a 6 day power reserve (power reserve indicator is located on the rear of the watch). Let's talk functions now. Of course there is the time, but there are also two subsidiary dials (again the power reserve indicator on the back of the watch as well). The main hands are also accompanied by the GMT hand. It is easy to read, but I would have liked Panerai to include a dedicated scale for the GMT hours around the bezel or flange of the watch. The left subsidiary dial is for the small seconds and well as a little dot that moves around the dial each 30 seconds - this indicates the movement of the tourbillon. The right subsidiary dial is an AM/PM indicator, which is essentially a synchronized 24 hour hand for the main time. All useful functions, with the neat little tourbillon dot thrown in the mix. By the way, that dot was originally added because the original watch with the caliber P.2005 movement did not have an exposed tourbillon on the dial so Panerai wanted to remind you that it was there.

The Kazimon Eintausend comes in a really rugged Pelican case - which adds to the "do anything, go anywhere" character of the watch. As a sole timepiece it is ideal if the style matches your personality, and of course diver watch fans, and those looking for classic looking superman watches, they will find a contender in the Eintausend. Price is about 1,500 euros. Learn more about Kazimon watches or get one here.

The dial is pretty easy to read, but I feared it might be a bit too black on black for optimal legibility. Inspecting the watch I can say that it is quite easy to read. This all depended on how well the hands stand stood - you get some idea seeing the watch in the video. There is lume on the hands. The chronograph subdials and date and day windows are all very cool in design and clearly inspired by modern weaponry and instrumentation. The standard version actually has a slightly tinted sapphire crystal that darkens the dial a bit. Overall the look is almost a perfect analog of the ideal in such weaponry genres. After checking out the watch I can say that I really like it. Totally the type of fun watch I would wear. Yes, the watch isn't cheap, but at least it is fact a hardy timepiece that is more than just a style impostor. With its hardy automatic movement and steel case (100 meters water resistant), it should put up with more than enough.
