The Tiffany & Co. diver watch in question is very sparsely labeled, aside from the Enzo Mechana logo on the back. You know that it is an automatic (inside is a Swiss ETA 2892-2), and that it is a certified chronometer. Some of you might be thinking that the spare information about this watch signifies that it may be a fake or some Frankenstein watch. This is unlikely as it is common for short lived Tiffany & Co. watches to have little historical information available about this. Again, this is common with the Streamerica, which is another beautiful watch.
People have been diving for probably thousands of years, but it really became a science in the 20th century, after lots of envisioning occurred in the 19th century. The first diving watch was a Rolex because of its water resistance (Rolex Oyster case), but divers, like all people needed a variety. IWC decided to release the Aquatimer in the late 1960s, perhaps a little late on the bandwagon, but the Aquatimer was a nice watch. With the IWC Vintage Aquatimer, IWC pays homage to the original Aquatimer while at the same time releasing a fully capable diving instrument.
Most of the design elements on this watch are meant to remind you of diamonds, and diamond edges, along with traditional London architecture. Hence the many sharp corners and polished surfaces, along with mod-Romanesque high stature design. The hands, almost over-sized for the face exude a sense of wealthy excess. As though the watch is conceding that the hands are too big for the face, but are meant to make a statement. Think of a solid gold cars, with solid gold 25 inch wheels. Total overkill, but seemingly appropriate. Having said that, I don't need to remind you that the watches are all gold, or white gold, or other more expensive and luxurious materials. I might be sarcastic about it, but you take these things for granted when talking about watches of this caliber.

Although big on size the new Oris is a real must for purist divers who desire a functional and reliable timepiece, and not just a great deal of marketing hype.

Legally speaking, first off, is the idea that they will not accept cash. Because they are a private company, the law here allows them to refuse cash and accept only certain types of legal tender, such as credit cards or checks. Laws such as this started in the 1950's due to often obscure reasons. For example, the laws attempted to protect businesses from being forced to accept payments in all pennies. This law is now being used to allow Apple to reject cash whenever it likes.
My choice for a Zenith watch, is the Defy Open Xtreme, which comes in various materials and color schemes. For going all out, my pick is the black titanium with gold and carbon fiber accents. Prices for Zenith watches, while on the mid to high level, and very fair when compared with other manufacture makers such as Patek Philippe, Breguet, and Vacheron Constantin. A Zenith watch is sure to become part of my collection as soon as possible.
Talented clock and steampunk artist Olga Narozhna has a new item for auction on her eBay store. She does a wonderful job of combining steampunk elements with modern style and function. Her art is all hand made, save for the watch itself that is taken apart and tastefully integrated into her work. Here you have a natural leather cuff made from several pieces of quality leather, with rivets for structure and display. Attached is a skeletonized watch movement and a number of gears and interesting mechanical elements. Not only do these pieces look very steampunk cool, but they are also comfortable unique works of art. No two are the same, and because all production is by hand, only a few are made.

The name "Altiplano" literally means "high plain." Whether this regards the "elevated" status of the watch and its design, or it refers to a geographic location best suited to appreciate this watch, it is a fittingly "high-class term." The Altiplano is a very thin watch with a movement just 2.5mm thick. To allow for this slim size, it has a manually wound movement, which requires winding from time to time. This however is an in-house movement and offers over 60 hours of power reserve. So you only have to wind the watch each couple of days. Piaget is uncommon in the jeweler class of watch makers that provide manufacture movements.
