Swatch Group Cracks Down


OmegaBlogger pointed out this interesting article on the Swatch group’s efforts to kill fakers.

Speaking to Khaleej Times yesterday Elsa Emch said the Swatch Group is committed to protecting the rights of its customers around the world and it will do whatever possible within its strengths to protect its customers from fake products. ???We will work closely with our local dealers to make sure that there is adequate brand awareness among customers in the region. A number of initiatives will be taken to enhance customer education, while brand awareness in the region will be increased through extensive media campaign and distinctive outlets.???

All the brand awareness in the world won’t stop folks from picking up a $40 Seamaster.

Inside the Seiko Spring Drive


Great in depth look at the Spring Drive from one of Timezone’s finest.

And so we come to the latest Seiko innovation, the Spring Drive. Although virtually all mechanical watches use a spring as a power source, the Spring Drive is extremely unique in that it dispenses with the 300+ year old idea of a mechanical escapement for the regulation of time. The result is a watch that avoids the age-old problems associated with mechanical escapements such as hairsprings, delicate balance wheels, pallet forks, and escape wheels (not to mention maintenance issues).

Review – Military Watches Mall Divers Review


Military Watches Mall is a pretty well-known eBay seller who offers some nice quartz divers with some sexy, sexy looks. At about $23 each, you really can’t go wrong. v_roomy looks at his two acquisitions.

The first one I opened was the black PVD ???plongeur??? model on the olive NATO strap. I was immediately struck by the quality of the PVD finish ??? beautiful, surprisingly lustrous (I???d expected a matt finish) and very consistently applied. The bezel operates quite precisely, though does not feel as well machined as the bezel of my ORSA (a comparison many people will make, given the styling similarities). The strap is of decent quality, with good solid buckles rather than the roughly plated ???tin??? you sometimes find on these NATO look-alikes ??? I???m not sure whether the black watch and olive strap are an ideal colour combination, though!

Bell & Ross Belgian Grand Prix


Bell & Ross has just announced the Belgian Gran Prix chrono, a charming looking little piece. I’m getting the full specs as we speak. A Gran Prix? In Belgium? Wouldn’t they all stop for beer and pomme frites the whole time?

Hmmmm… a Ferrari or a Vacheron?


(alternate text)

Gee, I just happen to have a bit more than three hundred grand burning a hole in my pocket. I was goofing around on eBay and now I just can’t decide between a 1954 Vacheron Constantin 4261 Minute Repeater in platinum or a 1991 Ferrari F40. Decisions, decisions, decisions.

If you need to tell time, and most of us here cherish the act of timekeeping, then check out the Vacheron auction here. Got absolutely no clue if it’s for real or not.

If you need transportation, or maybe to catch the eye of a young lady, then check out the Ferrari auction here.
