Also, Itay Noy watches are alternatively available at Ace Jewelers here.
The more time I spend with innovative independent watch makers, the most I find myself being drawn to that world. Nubeo is one of my newest favorites because founder Ivan Castro is first a jewelry man, second a watch maker. The sentiment translates into a totally unique interpretation into watch design as well as construction ethic. He is a humble guy, but has a no tolerance attitude for deviations from his strict concepts of quality in both aesthetic and construction. These are a few watches from one of his first lines of watches, the Jellyfish. There is also the Black Jellyfish, and Medusse (which is the women's line). Then for the ceramic built versions, they are called the Keramik watches. All of these are based on the same type of design. The Jellyfish looks comes out best when you turn the watch on its side and look at the outline shape. Looks like the profile of a jellyfish right? All Nubeo watches has this theme of "organic" influence, and it works really well for the brand.
The hour markers on the black colored dial as well as the hands have luminant. It isn't the strongest lume, but it suffices for most near darkness viewing. A curious part of the watch is the style of the mineral crystal. It is slightly domed, which creates a mild lens affect (not sure if this was an intentional part of the design). It also has an anti-reflective coating that you can tell because light sometimes reflects blue against the crystal. The effect of the crystal is that the dial looks a bit distorted when looked at from an extreme angle. Looking at the dial from most angles is clear and crisp. The lens also seems to magnify the dial at certain angles. Just a little quirk of the watch.

At Basel next month we will see the new Hamilton Ventura XXL Automatic watch. A serious update on the styling makes it a true Ventura watch only to serious enthusiasts. New comers to the model might not even associate it with the original iconic watch design. The watch gets some needed refinement and updating. Notable are the smoother integration between the lug structure and the strap, as well and the more angular look of the case and face. Still, smooth curves define much of the surface, but don't make up the shape itself. The crown itself is integrated - Cartier Roadster style - into the case and crystal (which looks to have some curvature). The case is made of steel with an Anthracite PVD color coating. Size is up to 42mm wide, and taller still - hence the XXL name in the watch. Regardless, the watch is not huge, just larger than the original that was maybe 35-36mm wide. Right not at least, only a rubber strap will be offered. I hope to see a return to the two-tone contrasting strap look soon.
