Bernhardt Globemaster GMT Watch Review By aBlogtoRead.com Reader

Bernhardt Globemaster GMT Watch Review By aBlogtoRead.com Reader

The 18k rose or white gold case is 44.3mm wide by 48mm tall - a substantial size for a substantial watch. The watches will be available in a limited edition of only 18 pieces, but that should be per a model. There is something very old world about the design, yet the cut-away of the face as well as the design of the movement is more modern. I think that DeMonaco did a good job trying to recreate the "substance" of Monaco in this watch. Like I said before on Luxist, the case and look appear to be more architecturally inspired versus traditionally horologically inspired, and it is a fresh change of pace done well.

People associate professional instruments with IWC watches. The Aquatimer series was always for the serious enthusiast. The new line has models that almost look cartoony in some angles, and the sheer range of colors available seems to miss the point of why people chose IWC Aquatimer watches over competitor offerings. Looking at the large hands, and bight yellows, oranges, blues, and other colors, I kept thinking to myself where I had seen this before. All over Japanese dive watches of course. These looks are usually typified by watches in a much lower range, not the price points at which IWC prides itself (,000 plus).  I can't say what type of success IWC will have with the new watches, and it is possible they will be a strong commercial success. Further, this commentary isn't solely in regard to the marketing images. You can see this in the video and other images of the watches. Decide for yourself the resulting looks of the new line.

MM: How do watches fit into some of your most profound memories?
DP: Watches have been purchased or gifted to me during milestone or touchstone moments throughout my life. So these watches then help those memories stay alive and relevant throughout my daily life.

The rest of the Cameo S model will be the same as the regular Cameo watch. This includes the architecturally themed square case unique to Temption with an ETA 2892A2 automatic movement powering the watch. Temption is proud of the special technique they use to chemically bond the square sapphire crystal to the case. This process is very difficult to do because the Cameo is of the only square watches with a true square sapphire crystal. The stainless steel case is beautifully cut in a high polish and brushed finish, with some satin finished segments on the side.

Each time I wear the watch I like how it feels, and how it looks. It is a unpretentious look, that appears comfortable being what it is. It doesn't try to hard, and the element coalesce together nicely. My thoughts are that this watch is good for any guy who wants a nice watch, that will last, that has reasonably good internal mechanics, and is different enough for other guys to notice. I further feel good about recommending this watch because it has a solidly built case and bracelet. As is the case with most Japanese watches, the quality control is impressive. All the pieces fit together nicely, and there is no travel between the bracelet end pieces (which are solid steel) and the lugs. The bracelet itself is better than most I've seen from Japanese brands. Sometimes a Japanese watch case looks great, and you wonder why a mediocre bracelet is attached to it. Here the quality of the case and bracelet match well. The bracelet tapers just a bit, and is a five link design - with alternating satin and polished finishes. The links are solid metal, and use good quality pins. I actually think that the bracelet on this Orient watch was the easiest I've ever had to fit. Usually the bracelet fitting ritual is a slightly delicate and sometimes frustrating procedure. I think it was about 5 minutes from when I started the procedure until it was perfectly sized on my wrist. Included on the deployment are three micro adjustments that are infinitely useful if you like that precise fit that I do. Too many watches that don't feature this always feel just too loose, or just too tight. It is funny how most Japanese watch makers are mindful of this, while a great deal of high-end Swiss watch makers totally over look it. I have no complaints with the deployment either. This is actually one of the most important parts of a watch because you use it at least twice a day (putting the watch on, and taking it off). The clasp has a stamped Orient logo, with a push-button release and a safety clasp. It is on par with the value of this watch, and hassle free to use.

Tag Heuer's booth at Baselworld 2009 was quite controversial. Why? Because they didn't let anyone near the watches. I wasn't there, but reports indicate that Tag Heuer goons kept the press away offering to show them images of the products only. WTF? Yea, it doesn't make a lot of sense, but at least we have these videos that help make the watches more lifelike when all we typically have are marketing photos. Not really sure why Tag Heuer was so defensive about their booth, but hopefully in the future they will realize that us press people needs some intimate time with the timepieces.

Overall the new Seamaster Aqua Terra Co-Axial GMT Chronograph watch is done well. A few areas I am not sold on such as the dial and the length of the hands. One other area is the bezel. Not that the bezel does not look nice, but I am not sure whether it fits the character of the rest of the watch. It looks very much like an instrument and less part of the "luxury boat lifestyle" that the dial is speaking to. Maybe I am the only one that sees it like that. I know that Omega is a brand that likes to focus on functionality, and that is good. I might possibly see the the Seamaster Aqua Terra GMT Chronograph a few times and change my mind, but those are my initial reactions. Not sure about price, I would guess ,000 - ,000 for the steel version with a 40-70% premium over that for the 18k red gold version.

Some additional information from Casio:

In the 1970s watches like the Nautilus were ground breaking. They offered something you didn't see much of before. New styles of luxury sport watches. At high prices to match. I believe that the Nautilus is still one of the most expensive sport watches given what you get, but it is worth it. Not only are you getting something from the Patek Philippe brand, but also an in-house made movement, and world class Swiss watch finishing that really isn't beat anywhere else. You can view the movement through the sapphire caseback window with ease on the Jumbo version of the Nautilus watch, complete with Calatrava cross signed rotor.

The Marcello C. Pegasus Model represents a perfect watch for the perfect day. This is a beautifully manufactured watch, with just enough details to strike up conversations wherever the wearer goes. The Superluminova inserts in the hands make this such a functional and attractive watch. With such a modest price for such a solid watch, any man or woman would be proud to rock this timepiece.

Inside is a modified automatic Valjoux 7750 movement. In addition to the Diapal system, the seconds dial has been removed and a GMT hand has been added. The Diapal version has a different colored dial than the standard 756 watch without the lube free movement. The watch comes on Sinn's high quality steel bracelets a both the 43mm wide case and bracelet are specially hardened tegimented steel. I really want ones of these watches myself someday.
