Omega Speedmaster Professional 145.022 Buyer's Guide

Korsbek is one of these new types of high quality style emulation brands.  The company uses a mixture of German and Swiss parts to create high quality limited edition watches that under-cut the price of Kobold watches by more than half much of the time. Here is one of their nicest watches that was part of a limited edition of 100. They are on to their next models, but this Korsbek Ocean Explorer watch is worth looking closely at.The Kobold retails for over a 00 more than the Korsbek. I think the Korsbek Ocean Explorer is an excellent value and interpretation of the design. Lets look at its details a bit.

Watches such as this with retrograde arms were popular in the 18th century, and a bit into the 19th century. Their complexity and character being cherished. As they became a bit less practical, and most decorative, their numbers subsided, but the creative watch maker could always produce something inspiring such as this Tempusvivendi. Thomas Prescher delights in the 'old" and really excels and making such artistry feel fresh again.

French painter Philippe Burlet knows his way around a brush as well as cars and watches. Burlet's medium of choice is watercolors, which he uses to aptly recreate the essence of sport racing and the watch loving spirit. Although relatively obscure in the United States, Burlet is a favorite among European motor sports enthusiasts, who often commission work from the talented painter.

Then you have what I consider to be one of the first 'whimsy' luxury watches that might have began the 'movement' trend in luxury women's watches. I am speaking of the Chopard Happy Diamonds, and all the derivatives that came after it. This proved to be a very popular watch for Chopard with an endless amount of colors, sizes, and styles. What they all have in common are gold cases diamond studs that move freely in a compartment sandwiched between two sapphire crystals above the dial. While the effect hindered one's view of the time, it was an interesting novelty that many adoring fans still covet today. Chopard has done an excellent job with this, and it is still one of their best sellers.

These new types of electronic watches started to show up in the 1960s and were pretty revolutionary for the time. They were not exactly cheap, nor this they provide every advantage over mechanical watches. However, they did not need to be wound, and were far more accurate. Bulova watches created its own electronic tuning fork movement and called it the "Accutron," which later become its own sub-brand. One of the best-known Accutron watch lines is the Spaceview.

Banking on the success of the design, Corum keeps releasing variations, the most recent of which are pretty large. The Blag Flag and Black Hull share the 48mm wide case that does serious justice to the boldness of the watch. Each also has a combination of case materials including titanium and rubber; making the case light and durable. The strap is of course also rubber.

The Oceantimer 1330 Blue has...a metallic blue face, large red toned minute hand, and a striking legibility. The maximum sized minute hand is supposed to allow for supreme visibility under water, and just looks cool. While it is hard to tell in the images, the minute hand is a rich red metallic tone with lots of luminant in the middle. The smaller hour and seconds hand are while, also with luminant.

The Grand Port Royal are among Zenith's only rectangular watches, and it is obvious a lot of time was put into the design. Interestingly enough, the watches are not mere squared watches that house an El Primero movement. Instead, the highly modern approach to the design focuses on simplicity and texture, emphasizing minor details and the functions of the watch. Details of interest involve the high grade materials, texturing on the dial, and design of the hands and font for the numbering. The case is self looks chiseled almost, stressing the angularity and displaying an overall faceted look. It is a simple shape that evoke sporty strength without pretention. The dial is framed nicely and displays another world into itself. While the case is simple, the dial is more complex. Functions involve a 30 minute chronograph, and a power reserve, in addition to telling the time. Included is the typical tiny propeller style seconds indicator in the "open" window to the movement. It is sometimes hard to see, more for looks that use, but it is fun to watch. Interestingly enough a date window is absent. Zenith probably decided it would have looked too cluttered with a date window. Actually, many 30 minute chronograph watches don't have date windows.

The bracelet itself features a nicely crafted locking clasp and a diver’s extension. The watch is water resistant to 100 meters, making it perfectly safe for diving. The bracelet is comfortable, though it took me a while to size it properly. I would have liked the underside of the broad case to be a bit more rounded, though this would have likely proved to be more effort for Tissot than it might have been worth. The bracelet has links that are a bit more flexible than they look (a good thing), making it wrap around your wrist well. The links are attached via pins. Come to think of it I don’t think I know of many titanium bracelets that feature screwed links. This is probably the perfect watch to have a metal and alternative strap option for, as you want to protect the handsome bracelet if you are taking the watch along during a potentially high impact activity.

The Pink Panther was designed by Virtual Ideas, a specialized design firm.

Although you really could not tell from merely looking at the Illum Aqua's face, it has an automatic movement inside. This is nice to know, as I prefer my artsy watches mechanical. Angular Momentum does provide quartz movements in some of their entry-level watches, but remain purists when it comes to those watches they mean to impress the world with. If anything, I give them respect for taking chances. This is an example of that, and the risk is a success in my opinion. I'd have to say that your money well-spent on an Angular Moment, especially when they come out with watches such as the Illum Aqua (Water Sports Watch).

Thick dagger hands add to these watches' personality. I like the change in color on the hands and dial from the steel case. The hands and dial are done in "Champleve," which gives them a slightly bronzed tone. The 42mm steel cases themselves are satin and polish finished attached to alligator straps. The crowns have black enamel inlays, and probably look as cool as the rest of the watch. Inside both watches have automatic mechanical movements, and 3mm thick sapphire crystals. They are also water resistant to 10ATM.

Beautiful Bentley Watch Safe By Stockinger Begs, 'Please Steal Me' Luxury Items The people behind this limited edition line of Bentley branded safes by English Stockinger say that they felt traditional safes were too ugly and bland. Big rugged looking cubes that just say "eh" and sit there in a drab gray or black. Well that is true, but that was the point. They are supposed to be hidden and out of site, not to attract attention and give the idea that boring paper work is contained within only interesting and of value to the owner. Welcome the age of truly flaunting your wealth.

Pricing is competitive at about 00 on the high end, 00 on the lower end. Nivrel German watches are not the easiest to find, but you'll get one if you look online hard enough.

This particular model available on eBay is used and available a price below retail of course. Starting price is ,800, though deals can be made. The buyer invites you to make him an offer, which I suggest you do if you are interested. Watch lovers will almost get upset if you don't haggle a bit. It shows you have pride in your horological pursuits.  Check it out.

Both models features the Corum caliber CO753 automatic movement which has been certified as a chronometer. The watches have a 300m water resistance, and all the high quality construction and finish you can expect from Corum.

More importantly is what these watches represent for the future of computer watches and mobile phones. We haven't heard the term "convergence device" in almost a year, but don't worry, the concept is still strong. This is a real convergence device that makes sense. They just need to work out the practicality kinks. Think of it though. This little device actually delivers two way video conferencing on your wrist. While this service has been available in advanced Asian nations for a while, it is something that we haven't received here in America on any wide scale, even though it has been promised to us since childhood. LG has promised full production with US distribution for the LG GD910 is North America starting this year.
