la Montre Verte City Pulse Pollution Detecting "Green Watch" Feature Articles

Still with the Tag Heuer Carrera look, the Certina DS 1 Chrono Automatique (Automatic if you aren't in Europe!) takes everything I love about the Valjoux 7750 movement and emphasizes on its sober tool-like demeanor. That isn't to say the watch is without beautiful good looks, but it is more handsome than flashy. You'll notice that Certina chose to include two different types of pushers for the chronograph. The start and stop pusher being a bit larger and easier to use. The presence of three distinct pushers/crown on the side of the case is a nice design feature.

Hands-On - Omega Speedmaster Professional Silver Snoopy Award

Here is a cool idea that is more than just a concept, but actually being done right now. Pictured above is the "Green Watch" and it is part of the la Montre Verte City Pulse project currently taking place in Paris France. It was started by the FING (Fondation Internet Nouvelle Generation) The project's goal is to create a system to measure air and noise pollution in urban centers, eventually learning how to create environmentally sustainable cities. There are currently three prototype Green Watches being worn that have air and noise sensors. The watches collect information and use a mobile phone that the wearer has to transmit information back for the database. What you get is map as seen below that measures in extreme detail the areas of the highest noise and air pollution in the city.

I have come to admire Panerai for their unexpectedly handsome designs. Though they seem to fly under the radar, these are truly masculine yet beautiful designs that play perfectly upon men's wrists. They are instantly strong and powerful, and represent a brand dedicated to precision and time. The Panerai Luminor with Power Reserve is one such intro model that could definitely work for both dads and grads, lending to a life already filled with aesthetics and adventure.

The offset second hand at the 6 o'clock position further enhances the rhythmic motion of this watch, by displacing the seconds from the central hour and minute indicators in a subtle twist. Yet another sexy level. A very mythical, unexpected design element that totally works.

Introducing A New Swiss-Made Automatic Diver’s Watch For Men That Is Big On Performance And Not On Your Wallet

People have funny dreams. Some people have dreams of making watches with incredible water resistance. This Swiss Military 20,000 Feet Diver watch was a dream to do just that; create a mechanical watch that can survive just that, 20,000 feet under water. Not just any mechanical watch, but a chronograph, which is harder to keep as water resistant. The watch was made, it survived the pressure chamber, and it got awarded the word record. The 20,000 Feet Diver defeated the record Rolex set in 2008 with the new DeepSea Sea-Dweller watch by about 50%. It is rather cool that you can buy a Guinness world record holding watch.

Frederic Jouvenot Automatic Chronograph Evolution Watch: Rotor On Front Watch Releases

The project aims to have 1000 Green Watches in Paris that will constantly be measuring the environment. The Green Watch contains a few pieces of technology including a GPS chip, Bluetooth chip, and the ozone (o3) and noise (dB) sesnors. In addition to telling the time (see the little hands on the watch), the dial has color coded sensors that change depending on the environment. Thus, the wearer knows whether the air quality is good or bad, and (if they are deaf) if it is a loud area. To have the watch itself send data over mobile digital networks would be too burdensome on the battery. Instead, the device connect via Bluetooth to a nearby mobile phone which relays the data in real time. In the event there is no mobile phone, the wearer can have the Green Watch auto synchronize with the City Pulse network by connecting it to their computer in a manner similar to an iPod.

The majority of new Breitling watches that are released don't excite me. It is a lot of the same to be honest. Oh look, another chronograph watch in a heavy highly polished metal case, maybe with a rotating bezel or a slide rule. That is basically most Breitling watches - although some are better looking than others. This watch is different because it is of the few that has the cool SuperQuartz calibre 78 movement. This is the movement that the famous and popular Aerospace models had. Yes, it is a quartz movement, but it is what is known as a "themoline" quartz. Meaning it has a temperature sensor that adjusts the vibration frequency of the quartz crystal to adjust to temperatures so that the watch can remain as accurate as possible. This takes the watch from being accurate to within a few seconds a month to being accurate to within a few seconds a year. Like the original Aerospace watches, the Airwolf Raven is a COSC certified Chronometer.

I bet many of you don't know how to feel about a line of watches emblazoned with a cartoon cat. In Diamonds. But, think about it. This is a nearly perfect creation.

In order to manufacture this Art Deco timepiece, Eterna was able to capitalize on their own history of movement excellence while continuing its tradition of elegance. Inspired by art, and driven by perfection, Eterna has captured a very wearable watch for women, and one that they will be proud to wear.

So you want to know what's inside this rock - What's powering this machine... The RSW Moonflower features the Automatic ETA 2824-2 Movement, manufactured by powerhouse ETA, with 28,800 vibrations per hour, or 8 beats a second. ETA has earned a solid reputation for creating high quality movements that require less wrist movement to wind the mainspring.

Really not a lot to add to this video in terms of stuff to say. The merits are there for your eyes. You have the very friendly Arnd at A. Lange & Sohne wearing TheTimeTV's signature little microphone talking about the new Richard Lange "Pour le Merite" and new 1815 watch line that was officially released at SIHH in January a couple months back. These videos do the new watch line justice, and it is interesting to get a glimpse at the set up's that brands display at SIHH (always impressive). You can see a little bit of the super-sized Lange 1 made clock sized at the display. Another cool feature is the supersized exploded model of the new 1815 watch's movement.

The rooms where the watch makers sit is always headed by a leader - who sits in the back. The room leader is a more senior level watch maker who is there to answer questions and over see work. These leaders are not only there to ensure that the output is as planned, but to mentor the more junior members of the team. You can see from the pictures that the rooms are neatly organized, and have large open windows as to not make anyone feel stuffy. The rooms are kept small on purpose (I saw no more than 20-30 people per room), as to enhance the level of team work and cohesion as everyone is there to focus on a common goal. It is also important to communicate what everyone is working for. One feature of this ideal was how the watch making rooms were decorated, with framed images of watch movements or pieces there of. As if saying to the people in the room, "remember what you are working for, and remember that they are treasures fit for wall decoration and to be framed." It was a nice touch, and I thought it charming to at least see people proud of their work.

Longio Watches has been the back-bone of a few popular watch companies that you are probably aware of. While who they supply and work for is a secret, it is no secret that Longio makes watches under their own name now. They typically use a number of different brands (the Chinese never were very good at branding to conform with Western ideals), but there are some interesting pieces now being offered - several thousand dollar timepieces.

If you are gifting someone who is traditional, classic, and smooth, then Rolex is another perfect option for you. And the wearer, of course. The Explorer Collection would be most symbolic for a college graduate, as they are on to the next phase of their life. But would also fit perfectly upon a father's wrist. You can't go wrong with a Rolex, no matter the year, no matter the model. But with the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust Explorer II, you are securing a future filled with success. People trust a Rolex, with the solid engineering and austere of integrity. And as a dynamic and functioning watch, durable beyond belief, this is a gift not only for the wearer, but for future generations to come.
