Posted on 26 April 2006 by John Biggs


Cool new blog by a very cool watch guy in Pittsburgh. I met this guy at the Glashuette watch trip during which time we hoisted quite a few beers. Best of all? He’s go exclusive pics of the new Kobold creation, the SMG-1.

Kiddo’s Fake Daytona

Posted on 26 April 2006 by John Biggs


Wow. RJ over at Fratellowatches paused Kill Bill Vol. 2 to find that Uma is wearing a fake Rolex Daytona. What madness! Couldn’t maybe they call someone cool and get a watch in there? I know Fossil would KILL to get their best stuff on Bill’s wrist. Anyway, I hope it was just an inside joke.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Grand Réveil Fantasy

Is it just me or are blocky serif fonts on watchfaces a little off-putting? When the serif font is thin and spindly, I think it really works well.

That said, I’m sure the movement in this new JLC beast is amazing, but the face I could probably do without. What think ye?

Nasty Seller Acts Nasty – Watch Out for Dualtime.CH

Posted on 19 April 2006 by John Biggs


A shifty store, Dualtime sold one of the watch folks a Glycine with box and papers. Apparently, the buyer received only the watch and then got a broken box and weird papers for his trouble. I suppose they’re someone to watch out for now.

Review: Suunto T6

Posted on 18 April 2006 by John Biggs

B0002T67JC.01.LZZZZZZZ.jpgI love me a good smartwatch, and Suunto makes some of the best. This beast has a pedometer, heart rate, and bike speedometer and can dump all of your data to your PC.

The power of the t6 is not just from the heart rate monitor, or the optional footor bike pod; the power of the t6 is in the outstanding, (free) included software that allows you to sync your t6 with your computer. With this device hooked up to either your PC or Mac (via virtual PC),you can look at analyses of 7 body parameters including EPOC (excess post-exercise oxygen consumption), training effect, oxygen consumption, energy consumption, respiration rate, heart rate, and ventilation. You can read more on monitoring respiratory activity in field, the accuracy of heart rate based V02 monitoring, and the technology behind EPOC and the other Suunto products by clicking on any of the hotlinked words.

Looks like Citizen is going for the clownfish look with their new Eco-Drive diver. Live from Basel 2006, apparently.
