Seiko Velatura SRH005 video review from

Posted on 27 November 2007 by John Biggs

# Seiko’s new Direct Drive Kinetic movement. The watch can be charged manually by hand winding it, and it charges naturally as the movement of your arm rotates an internal rotor.
# Anti-reflective sapphire crystal.
# Date at the 6 o’clock position, and a retrograde day indicator.
# Stainless steel case and bracelet.
# Three-fold clasp with push-button release.
# Very bright LumiBrite paint on the hour hand, minute hand, and on the hour indices.
# Recessed reset button in case the integrated circuit ever needs a quick reboot.
# Automatic hand alignment which ensures that the power indicator hand is always accurate (calibration occurs every 24 hours).
# Water resistant to 10 bar, 100 meters, or 330 feet.

Ball Engineer Master II Diver TMT with thermometer

Posted on 27 November 2007 by John Biggs

Why spend money on a pricey quartz movement when you can get a monstrous Ball with a built-in mechanical thermometer.

This is a dive watch, but the coolest feature is the mechanical thermometer that reads Fahrenheit and celsius. They used tritium tubes in the watch dial and the rotating inner bezel for excellent illumination. There are 2006 Limited Editions available worldwide for $3,299.

What is the Equation of Time?

Posted on 13 November 2007 by John Biggs

Timezone takes a close look at cosmology and the equation of time. Take a gander so you can see what that weird complication actually does.

Having put ourselves in Fred Flintstone’s shoes (or saber-toothed tiger loafers, as the case may be), we can see that one fact must have seemed obvious to our flea-bitten ancestors — looking up at the sky, day or night, the natural conclusion to draw is that the earth is stationary, with heavenlybodies moving around it.

Chanel J12 GMT

Posted on 13 November 2007 by John Biggs

I don’t usually post boutique models but this Chanel looks OK for maybe an effete world-traveller with a watch scratching phobia.

The new Chanel J12 GMT with a black ceramic case has a nice 42 mm wide and 10 mm thick. Chanel claims that is unscratchable and stain-resistant. I have never had a problem with stains on any watch, but scratches are a different story. I do find it hard to believe that they made this ceramic material unscratchable and I would definitely have to see it to believe it.

Help victims of Hurricane Felix, win a Girard-Perregaux timepiece

Posted on 12 November 2007 by John Biggs

Very cool. G-P gave the ANF a free, one-of-a-kind watch to raffle off for victims of Hurricane Felix.

“Virtus White” is an utterly exclusive piece handcrafted by Girard-Perregaux for ANF. The only one ever manufactured of its kind, this extraordinary watch was created to strengthen ANF’s efforts of providing hope and relief to children and families such as those affected by Hurricane Felix. Through the Foundation’s “Bright Future Reconstruction Fund” and relief operations, ANF seeks to rebuild lives and create new sources of opportunity. All suggested contributions of $100 made to the Foundation will merit participation in this historic drawing for Girard-Perregaux’s “Virtus White.”
