Peer into Bulova’s Heart

Posted on 31 October 2011 by Patrick Kansa

Alrighty folks – yesterday, I showcased a watch with a brown dial; the day before that, we had an “open heart” watch.  Toss those together, and what do you get?  Today’s watch in a flavor of (very affordable) Bulova.

Be A Good One

Posted on 30 October 2011 by Patrick Kansa

Be a good citizen, that is!  Today’s watch comes to us courtesy of some fieldwork that was done by my wife.  She was out and about, and this particular watch caught her eye, and she brought it to my attention.  And now, of course, it goes on to you.

Wear Your Heart On Your Wrist

Posted on 29 October 2011 by Patrick Kansa

From what I’ve been able to tell, this style of dial is called an open heart – it allows you to peer into the movement without having to resort to a display case back or skeletonization.  I don’t know about you, but I like being able to see the mechanical bits whirling around on a watch.  Today’s watch offers that, and a whole lot more.

Let’s Jump In Some More Saltwater!

Posted on 28 October 2011 by Patrick Kansa

Today, we’re going to take a look at another Ocean7 model, the LM5.  Many people will say that this is an imitation of the Blancpain 50 Fathoms.  While I conceded that there are indeed some striking similarities, I err on the “benefit of the doubt” side of things, and will say that this was obviously inspired by that famous (and much more expensive) model.

Want To Carry A Painting On Your Wrist?

Posted on 27 October 2011 by Patrick Kansa

Then you had better get yourself over to the opening of Jaeger-LeCoultre’s new boutique in St. Petersberg.  This very limited edition watch (only five pieces have been made) has a very interesting twist to it.  Under it’s unassuming dial hides an enamel reproduction of a Kazimir Malevich painting.  This painting is revealed by shutters moving back, hiding away the dial.

While the painting itself doesn’t do anything for me, I do like the mechanism of how it’s hidden and revealed – it seems like a unique way to present two different faces on a watch.  And of the watch itself?  It’s the Reverso model we’re all familiar with, presented in a rose gold with a Calibre 849 movement.  Of course, with only five in existence, you and I aren’t likely to see one anytime soon.

If you do, you may wish to know about the artist being represented:

Kazimir Malevich (1878 – 1935) was a painter famous for his works in genres of avant-garde, impressionism, futurism, and cubism.  In the spring of 1915 he pioneered abstract geometric art, which was soon known as “suprematism”.

His painting “Peasant Woman” is the piece showcased on this watch, and is currently owned by the State Russian Museum.

Prometheus Manta Ray Is Iconic

Posted on 26 October 2011 by John Biggs

I’ve had my eye on Prometheus for a while now and it looks like they’ve hit on a winner. The Manta Ray is a 1000M diver that looks like a tank and has the styling of a un-oranged Doxa. It has an ETA automatic movement and gas release.

Tokyoflash Goes Tron With The Kisai 7

Posted on 26 October 2011 by John Biggs


Another day, another Tokyoflash watch. The Kisai 7 is a clever, fairly cool watch that looks like something Jeff Bridges picked out of his magisterial beard in the last Tron movie. Priced at $99 for the next 30 hours, you, too, can look like a Program just looking to get out of the CPU.

Still Want A CW Jumping Hour?

Posted on 26 October 2011 by Patrick Kansa

If so, you’re in luck!  When I originally wrote about the Christopher Ward Jumping Hand model, it appeared that the model was out of stock.  However, we’ve received word that it is now available for pre-order, and will be shipping in the beginning of November.
