The Cherubin lines of watches is Temption's most expensive to date, but still an exceptional value. The Temption Cherubin is a rattrapante, meaning it is a dual chronograph. You can measure two times at once, by stopping one time, starting another, and then returning to the first. This is the role of the two seconds hand on the main dial. These are made using modified Valjoux 7750 movements, which are decorated and viewable through the sapphire crystal caseback.
Another function of the large design and bulbous looks is to remind the wearer of it's nautical theme. Ocean diving vessels are often rounded and large in order to combat water pressure at depths. They also operate to allow for function wearing diving gloves. Thus the large crowns and indicators on the watch are functional along with being attractive and reminiscent of the deep.
The rubber strap has a really nice steel deployment with diving extension. The strap also helps reduce overall weight. Parts of the watch case are PVD titanium, which is really nice as well. Inside, the watch has a well-to-do ETA 2897. It is resistant to 1000 meters, so and certainly looks it. Due to the complexity of the case, it is about 46mm wide and relatively thick. Personally I love large watches like, but I don't think this watch will look totally appropriate in formal settings as it looks like you are a spy. Which may be good 🙂

The LIP lines of watches available on Watchismo represent the best of what LIP has to offer and should cater to many tastes, even though who are not per se "into watches." Anyone who enjoys something different, something retro, modern art, or simply a highly functional timepiece will appreciate these LIP watches. I tip my hat to Watchismo for making them available.
Despite the copied looks, they are decent looks to copy. The rugged and futuristic styling that these dive watches share is comfortable on the eye. I don't know that they will be remembered as testaments to design innovation, but they are adequately nice looking to make you feel good about wearing them.

When I finally was able to feel the watch, I was so impressed. Really nice quality for what I thought was a bargain watch (compared to the Chanel J12). It cost me just a few hundred dollars, and eBay auctions are mad over the watch with intense bidding. The ceramic composition of the watch is unlike steel in many ways. We are talking about very high grade ceramic materials with an attractive glossy finish that will never scratch. The interposed steel is highly polished and the entire watch gives off a lovely gleam. Few of my other watches have attracted so many compliments. I suppose other people love this watch as much as I do.
Based on the configuration and materials (steel, rubber, leather trim available) used, the price for the Tag Heuer Meridiist will be between about 00 - 00. Expect availability soon. Tag Heuer teased us with concepts such as this (Tag Heuer Link watch based phone), but now we can stare at the real thing. Look for it starting September of 2008 at Tag Heuer boutiques and select locations where Tag Heuer watches are sold.
The specifications on this extreme piece are equally as impressive and further re-enforce the notion that this is no show pony:
