Reviews: IWC Aquatimer Cousteau Diver

An excellent review of a beautiful watch. Very Steve Zissou.

In terms of functions and technology, the Aquatimer Automatic is virtually identical to the titanium IWC Aquatimer Automatic 2000. One of the few differences is its pressure resistance, which is designed to withstand up to 100 bar or the pressure encountered 1000 m below the surface. As a result, the case is only 12.8 mm thick, rather than 14.8 mm. Another distinctive feature is the fact that this one is available exclusively in stainless steel with a blue rubber strap.

Review – Omega Speedmaster Pro

I love my Speedy Auto, but I still pee a little when I see a Speedy Pro. Les Zetlein writes a very cute review of the Pro and mentions that Buzz Aldrain actually hated his Speedy. This, however, is a GREAT exchange:

“Yes,” said Carretta, “I’m looking for a high-quality, accurate but sturdy chronograph that can time events up to 12 hours.”
“Hmmmm. Manual wind or automatic?”
“Doesn’t matter, as long as it can be wound by hand as well.”

Review: Chase-Durer Special Forces Underwater Demolition Team Chronograph

Special Forces 1000 UDT Chronograph

This is a serious piece of timekeeping machinery. Yeah, it’s quartz, but the Rambo factor of the watch earns the term “serious” in my book.

Review – Fossil Wrist PDA

The biggest piece of vaporware since Windows Longhorn has finally hit the street: the Fossil Wrist PDA. Yes, it’s here, dropping mad science on all you geeks out there.
