However, the inclusion of DLC coating really takes this watch to a new place. DLC stands for Diamond like coating, and is an extremely tough addition to any case. The coating is virtually scratch-proof, and offers an attractive dark gray sheen. Currently, the major implementers of DLC on watches are Casio (MR-G line) and Citizen (Attesa line). As Japanese watch makers frequently test new type of technologies, their European competitors take notice and emulate successful trends. It was only a matter of time before DLC technology made it Swiss watches, and the Ball Engineer Master II Diver GMT is one of the first examples. DLC is a seriously tough coating, and very impressive to experience. I've seen videos on YouTube of people stomping on them and throwing them around with little to no effect on the coating.
Common to many of the Campanola watches, this minute repeater also offers a full perpetual calendar and two alarm functions along with its minute repeater function. A minute repeater is watch with a chiming complication. Meaning that at various time intervals, the watch will chime. The Citizen Campanolas are quite adept at this, and use the chiming function for a variety of purposes. These include, telling the time without looking at the watch or indicating specific times of the day or hour. The chiming sound is really a pleasure to hear, and is worlds beyond the beeps you might be used to hearing coming from a watch. I recall the smile which appear on my face the first time I heard my Citizen Campanola sound its little bells.Read more ›
Oh man, this one is rare, but you've got to love it. I think this is a perfect combination of style and technology that is bested in few places. Further, this particular Citizen Campanola is extremely rare. Probably only a handful are in the US. One of these is available right now on eBay. There are only 2000 of them in the entire world.
5. Just because they don't take Paypal, does not mean it is a sham. Sure Paypal gives you comforting insurance, but not all sellers want to go with it because it takes a cut of their money. If everything else seems kosher, but they don't take Paypal, it should not break the deal.

This is by no means a comprehensive list, but merely a few options. Feel free to add your own suggestions and thoughts for watches fitting the Darth Vader attire.
For one thing, the Outland will be available in more colors and materials than just the PVD black on black strap. In fact, there is a pink gold version available, and a matte steel version, along with various dial colors (black, gray, and gold). Further, the Outland can be fitted with inset diamonds. To be honest, I am not sure why a watch like this needs diamonds, but it seems to be on the haute list of things to do right now. So RSW probably feels inclined to do as such. It is not a problem, because the masculine versions of the watch look great. The inspiration for the design is 1970s post modernism, but with a 21st century touch. In fact, the main idea behind the watch was to imbue a watch with the look of a compass. Personally, I don't see a compass, I see something more akin to a modern V6 engine. The large hex screws look like piston shafts, and the whole watch has a very machine-like quality to it. Nevertheless, RSW had it's heart in the Outland while designing it.
It would be easy to go into more details, but most of you already know what I am talking about. Because watches are almost universally available online, I would recommend buying a watch from an online seller rather than a brick and mortar retail location. You are going to get a better price, and not feel like a second rate purchaser in the process. However, know this, some watches are very hard to get. Especially German watches, and will have a handful of dealers in the US, if any. At times like this you may need to go into a watch store. If they are giving you the attitude, simply say that, they may be the only retailer of such watch, but there are many decent, if not better alternatives. It would be in their best interest to promote the brand, than be pretentious about it. Simply one man's advice.
When you get your Nettuno 3 or Tridente, Marcello C. provides a really nice leather case for them, but they are different for each watch. The Nettuno 3 comes in a pouch of sorts made for a single watch, while the Tridente has a zippered case with two compartments so that you can travel with two watches. Nice thing to have with a new watch. Watch "presentation" is a big deal when buying a new watch, but I really like it when the case that comes with a watch is one that can be used if you want to carry it around or travel. Most large square boxes are anything but practical for such use. It is good that Marcello C. figures you'll want a case that you might use, as opposed to stowing it somewhere because it is too nice to throw away, but functionally useless.

Having said that, however, one of the things that really impresses me about this watch is that despite the fact it has been designed to stand out, Clerc has not sacrificed functionality for form. Thanks to a helium valve (pictured on the reverse side of the watch), which is adjusted by a rotating bezel and unique in its genre, this sumptuous timepiece is water-resistant to 1000 metres. It also features a power-reserve indicator and a world-first system for adjusting it to the wrist.
For those of you who spend time reading about watches off-line as well as on-line, I am proud to announce that I, Ariel Adams, am now a regular contributing writer to the watch lifestyle magazine hr: (www.hrwatches.com). Pick up a copy of the latest issue (April), and you will notice a feature article by me discussing the Chopard L.U.C. Pro One GMT Diver watch.Read more ›
Steampunk-derived products are rare in the mainstream, and almost never mass produced, just as Vianney Halter's are that exclusive. The average watch owner or collector will appreciate the looks of these watch, but not necessarily be aware of the theme which the watches are trying to emulate. These expensive and beautiful fantasy science fiction watches. Emulating a combination of gauges, early underwater submarine portholes, and steam-powered machine era measuring instruments. The off center and bulbous placement of the various indicator windows is reminiscent of a gauge array on a steam engine, where the constant observation of pressure and temperature were essential to safe operation. Likewise, Vianney Halter watches are meant to be looked at and admired. You do not spend in excess of ,000 to see anything but the finest materials and craftsman's ship. Surprisingly enough, the small "factory" in rural Switzerland were each of these watches is assembled is a converted barn over 100 years old. It is some how fitting that these little machines be lovingly crafted outside of modern times. The bottom like is that they don't make instruments like they used to.
The Wearfone is the first watch phone for the masses. The bright OLED screen displayed has a traditional analog watch face as a default. It is unclear what the specific touch screen input method may be (keyboard on screen, etc...) but suffice it to say that you'll be able to make calls and SMS text message with the Wearfone. The designers indicate that the clock screen would be the default input screen for accessing functions of the phone, meaning that you'll probably have to use the tip of your finger or some stylus to input data and use the device.Read more ›
In response to the confused looking (but nice) watch, Seiko has added a few models to the Velatura line, but did something interesting. Not all of them have a Kinetic Direct Drive movement. In back the diver watch shown here has a traditional automatic made by Seiko. The movement (Seiko 8R28 automatic) in the new Seiko SRQ001J, could most easily be compared to an ETA Valjoux 7750, in terms of functions. Oddly enough, this new automatic is only rated at 100m water resistance, while the two quartz models are rated at 200m resistance. Don't asky why, but 100m resistance is not considered a true divers watch, which 200m will cut it, and 300m is the standard. Take my word for it. The cost of the Velatura diver automatic will retail for about 2,500 Euros. This is serious watch territory, but other Velatura watches are still in the sub ,000 dollar range.

The Damasko DC66 is a bit less expensive than the Sinn 757 but hard to get (not available from its authorized dealer at this time). One is available right now on eBay, and I highly recommend you take a look. The auction started as next to nothing, but I am sure it will end up at a great value below the ,200 retail price.

These two watches together are being offered starting at over k. Which yes, Is a lot of money, but considering that is less than a quarter of what they would if purchased together from a retailer, it is a great deal. Coming together in a dual display box, you have watches that can be worn for any occasion. My personal preference would be to switch the bands, as I love the black on all gold look, and the brown alligator strap looks very nice complimented with the shimmering arctic blue.Read more ›
