Blu Galaxy Watch: Pretty Little Cosmos Watch Releases

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 am always curious as to what the thought process is when admirable watch makers design watches after cars. They never seem to look too much like the cars they are modeled after. this might be a bit of an exception as at least the colors match. Do you think that cars are ever modeled after watches? Maybe. Well this is the Audemars Piguet Millenary MC12 Tourbillon Chronograph. Let me unravel that name for a moment. The "Millenary" title alludes to the stlye of the case and the "MC12" name refers to the Maserati super car that the watch is based on. The MC12 is basically a race car, not even really sure if it is street legal. The MC12 is Masterati's version of the Ferrari Enzo. Then you have the tourbillon complication and the 30 minute chronograph. Audemars Piguet also throws in a power reserve indicator for the Calibre 2884 manually wound movement.

This article isn't just me recommending a movie with "watch" in the name, but I wanted to point out that Watchmen is another movie you can throw in the pile of films with nods to watch appreciation. There is of course the doomsday clock, that slowly moves closer to midnight. There is the fact that it was his watch that got Jon Osterman his unfortunate opportunity to turn into Dr. Manhattan because he forgot the watch in the experiment chamber and went to get it. There is also the fact that Jon's (Dr. Manhattan) father was a watchmaker - with the accompanying childhood flashback scene where the young Jon is asked by his father to take apart and put back together a mechanical watch. And of course there is the product placement of the (older) mechanical Timex watch near the end of the movie.  This is an impressive list of watch related content. Of course, all of it is from the graphic novel (not the Timex though), but I applaud the screen adapters' choice to include as much as they did in the film.

There is something sadistic in this watch. What is it trying to say about time and your timepiece? Maybe people will think you should not be messed with. "He was able to crush his watch and keep it running with the crystal intact?!" Alternatively this is pure Dali-esque  art with a slightly different take on the surrealist master. I don't know much about Churchill Watch Co. that was/is based out of London, but I take it the English watch company is not very popular (at least anymore) as I cannot find much mention of them online. Nevertheless, during at least one point they were brave enough to release with Churchill Crush watch. This piece is apparently #6 out of a limited edition of 100.

Living with the Expedition WS4 watch is pretty easy. While big, it is relatively comfortable (the wrap around strap helps this greatly. . The watch is easy to read, and Timex's Indiglo illumination makes it easy to read in the dark. On the back of the watch is an easy to use battery replacement compartment - which uses CR2430 batteries that can be bought at most drugstores, meaning you don't need to visit a watch repair place to get a new battery. I believe that the crystal over the screen is mineral crystal, while the watch is water resistant to 50 meters.

Bill Paxton Wears IWC Aquatimer Chrono-Automatic Watch In Big Love Season 3 Feature Articles It took me the better part of season three so far to spot this watch. I knew that earlier seasons of Big Love (on HBO) had Bill Paxton (playing as character Bill Henrickson) wearing an Omega Speedmaster. This was likely out of his own collection. Season three sees him wearing something similar looking on camera (both steel with black and white faces), but a different watch. I eventually decided that it was an IWC Aquatimer Chrono-Automatic. It look a lot of pausing and staring to figure this out (trust me). This is a good choice for a man with three wives, and a ton of duties on his plate. When he is not "living the principle" the character acts as a strong businessman and Salt Lake City responsible citizen!

Enough of my intro, check the clip of this "corporate movie" and feel yourself driven to drop a few (hundred) grand on a new Audemars Piguet watch. Each year Audemars Piguet commissions several 'movies' for specific watches, but this is the overall corporate movie for 2009. Pretty well done for a watch company.

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.

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.

For all you moves and shakers, the ETA movement captured within this model, along with most manufactures, uses Incabloc shock resistance for the RSW Moonflower. So Ladies - whatever you call it - this means that the balance is not damaged when the watch is dropped or bumped. Excellent for use in action.

The Casio G-Shock classic series is really the perfect surfer watch (unless you want the tide charts which are available on other Casio watches). This is because they are inexpensive, can take a beating, and often solar powered, and highly water resistant. Likely realizing this, Casio and the Surfrider Foundation teamed up and will release the Casio G-Shock X Surfrider watch in July 2009. The watch is model G5500SRF-1 and will feature special colors and a Surfrider Foundation logo on the face behind the data. A portion the money for each watch sold will go to the Surfrider Foundation. Interestingly enough the partnership is stressing the eco-friendliness of the watch because it is solar powered and does not need batteries. This is true, but a kinda salesy if you ask me. I would prefer to see a testimonial by a surfer saying, "I can thrash the watch around all I want and not worry about it, and at the same time I never need to replace the battery that makes it the most reliable piece of gear I own." Wearing a watch while surfing is actually very important. You don't want to get caught out in the dark, and you need to judge the daily tidal ranges that are all time based. You should also remember that you have a life on shore. For 0 retail (out in July) it isn't a big commitment, and the connection with the Surfrider Foundation gives it that special added bonus that should make it on your list of surf prep for the summer (unless you are one of those pyscho surfers in industrial wetsuits wading near the razor sharp rocks at the mouth of the San Francisco Bay - then you've been surfing all winter haven't you? Nevermind, the Summers in San Francisco are pretty cold too).

IWC Aquatimer Watch Collection For SIHH 2009: Nice Tech, Weird Looks? Shows & Events IWC dive watch enthusiasts rejoiced to see a freshened up line of IWC Aquatimer watches released recently at SIHH 2009 in Geneva. There are a number of new models, and a slightly updated a depth gauge version as well (the Deep Two). IWC seemed to take a completely different approach this year as the line is much more colorful and shiny than it was previously. I am sure that the watches are mechanically and functionally superb, but I have mixed feelings on the new looks. Still the details are impressive, especially the use of sapphire crystals over the rotating bezels.

Linde Werdelin 3-Timer GMT Limited Edition Watch, More Versions Watch Releases

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.

This is probably the most popular watch of 2009 - even around the world. It is the main watch that President Barack Obama wears, and has worn since before he was elected President of the US. Obama received the watch for his 46th birthday by the Secret Service in August of 2007. He's been seen countless times wearing the watch, while in public, conducting state business, and during his personal time. It is a curious thing that what was such an obscure brand of special order corporate gift watches, is now almost a major brand. But like many have stated, you cannot buy better publicity than this - for the promotion of Jorg Gray makes sense. Obama did, in an almost random manner, receive the watch, but he has chosen to wear it proudly almost continually since. As you can imagine this fact has done wonders for watch maker Jorg Gray, who has now launched a brand new full line of watches. I've had the opportunity to meet with them and have myself acquired the famed "President Barack Obama watch." So here is my take on the timepiece that is seen on the most powerful person in the world. You too, can own the President's watch.

It should be clear how the time is displayed. The dial is constructed from three circular plates, each with a section of inset diamonds (or diamond). These sections are the hour, minute, and seconds indicators. The central seconds spins continuously thanks to the Calibre BL706 Automatic movement inside of the watch. The movement is actually quite impressive as it contains a rotor that winds the movement no matter which direction it is spinning in, and is set on ceramic ball bearings that help reduce friction. You can see an image of the rotor in the image of the back of the watch - how cool is that with the "blu" logo as the rotor?
