Bell&Ross iPhone App, revisited

Posted on 28 August 2009 by John Biggs

scaledemailing-iphone-082009v2Yeah, I don’t know why they made an another iPhone app either. It seems, after noticing B&R style clocks on the HTC Hero, that there is a real fetish for interface designers over these things. That’s the only way I can explain it.

The List

Posted on 27 August 2009 by John Biggs

Doxa 2I was talking with an friend of mine online recently, and the subject of “The List” came up. You know, the list of watches that you someday hope to own as a collector, a wish-list if you will. Since I’m fairly new to the collecting part of things, my list is relatively short and common, but I’m sure as time goes on, my tastes will expand, and someday I’ll want a big boy watch too.

Here’s a list of the watches I plan on owning someday, in no particular order:

Seiko Orange Monster

Doxa SUB300T (yeah, I’m a Cussler fan)
Omega Seamaster
Tissot T-Touch Trekking
Suunto Core All Black
Debaufre Aircraft-8 Chronograph

Again, I realize that this isn’t going to be the same list as everyone else has, but I like what I like. What’s on your list?

Own a bit of Hollywood memorabilia: Marlon Brando’s watch is going up for auction

Posted on 24 August 2009 by John Biggs

vacheron-constantin-brandoThe movie “On the Waterfront” is a classic. A masterpiece of directing, writing, and acting.. it features Marlon Brando at the peak of his ability. Much like the Vacheron & Constantin presented to a young Mr. Brando by his co-star, Eva Gabor to celebrate his Oscar nomination. And much like the fighter that he portrayed, the watch is slightly worn around the edges, but is made from 18k gold. It’s also coming up for auction on September 17th, and expected to sell for anywhere from $3000 – $5000 dollars.

The “watch case ball” removal tool

Posted on 24 August 2009 by John Biggs

watchcaseballRemoving a watch back can be an exercise in frustration. You want to open the thing up to replace the battery or clean it, but you don’t want to scratch the crap out of your precious time piece. Sure, you can get a tool on ebay, or from some other place, but it’s still risky. Enter the “Watch Case Ball”. Designed to remove a standard screw on back, it grips the back firmly, and won’t scratch due to the soft material it’s made from. At $5.00, it’s quite the deal as well.

LUMzilla, Reviewed

Posted on 24 August 2009 by John Biggs

Our boy Ariel at ABlogToRead reviewed this monstrous LUM-TEC LUMzilla automatic, a huge watch with huge hands and numerals. The watches run in the $600 range and have Japanese automatic movements. They’re 50mm which makes them a little hefty for most men – heck, this would look big on the bucket of a ditch digger – but it looks like a good deal for a watch that makes a statement.*

* Note: The statement would be “I like big watches with lots of lume.” The statement in no way should be “Girls will like me because of this.”
