G by EleeNo

Posted on 31 October 2005 by John Biggs

Yep, here they go again. TokyoFlash has a new watch, the EleeNo G, which redefines user unfriendliness.

Reading the time is surprisingly simple. The top row indicates the hour & the bottom 2 rows indicate the minutes. For a detailed example of how to read the time please scroll down to the diagram below.

The instruction manual appears below:

This beast – the G is for Graphic! – is about $120.

Greatest Loves, Worst Disappointments

Posted on 27 October 2005 by John Biggs

Great thread on WatchUSeek: Best Surprises and Worst Disappointments.

The opinions expressed on this forum have helped my greatly in determining which watches to buy. Just wondering what the consensus is on this: What have been your “best surprises” and “worst disappointments” since you have been buying watches (especially online) based on quality, meeting of expectations, etc.

Biggest losers? Tag Heuer and Invicta. Who’d a thunk it?

OmegaBlogger Finds a Beauty

Posted on 27 October 2005 by John Biggs

What a great old Speedy. I’ve been eyeing Speedys since I got my own and I just can’t push myself to get another one… or write a review on the one I have. But I do enjoy a good vintage.

Restoration is a personal thing, my view is that you need to keep the watch as original as humanly possible. On this 2915, sat in a drawer since the 70’s, there is not a great deal that needs doing. It needs an original crown and one is on its way, I have acquired a full set of hands if needed, we shall see as I’m not 100% convinced that the sub hands need replacing. The original bracelet 7077 is on the way too. Dial needs a clean, maybe just maybe a relume in tritium, maybe not. That leaves us with the bezel, its a tough one to call and a personal decision but I feel that its either original or its not, that leaves me with the task, the near impossible task, of locating an original bezel. The only other possible alternative is to have an exact replica custom made, and I mean exact! Its the “right” thing to do.

How to Buy a Watch Part 2

Posted on 27 October 2005 by John Biggs

Velociphile does it again.

His most important point:

Buy one watch that you really like, then never, ever read TimeZone, or any watch publications, again. This will save you a fortune. Especially to be avoided are the watch review, brand forum, and chatroom areas of TimeZone – the WIS contagion spreads from here… If you learn only one thing from my tale of woe, learn this! Turn back while you can.

New LED Watch – XRay

Posted on 25 October 2005 by John Biggs


Simon over at LED-WATCH.com has a new model, the XRay. It’s a limited edition, very Space-like with harder lines and a nice brushed steel case. The bevelled screen looks kind of like a TV, which is also hawt.

At about $100, it’s not that bad a price for a nice limited edition LED. I have a few of Simon’s wares and they’re great.

We’ve got a new look care of Dizzain.com. They’re excellent web designers. I’ll be tweaking it this week for sexiness, but let me know what you think.

A New Bond, a New Omega?

Posted on 19 October 2005 by John Biggs

Omega Blogger comments on the new Bond and his potential Omega.

If Omega retain the “product placement” rights will they go with a new Bond watch? My money would be on the Planet Ocean, I think the old Bond watch is looking a little tired.

Check it out here.
