Moonwatch Only 2nd Edition Book Review

OMEGA 1957 Trilogy Limited Editions - Railmaster, Seamaster 300, Speedmaster'57

The last two models are in the Harry Winston Midnight Limited Edition Shanghai ladies collection. Here the appeal is in the dial designs. Each of these two models draw inspiration from a traditional Shanghai (and Chinese) residential architectural structure called a Shikumen. These buildings are highly coveted in modern Shanghai and are kept intact as much as possible by the local people. The design of the dials on these two watch mirror elements of the structure's overall layout, as well as aesthetic elements found in many of them.

This is the Mille Miglia Rosso Corsa limited edition of 1000 pieces watch. In this instance, the Mille Miglia comes full circle in celebrating Italy once again as the Mille Miglia itself was an Italian race. Rosso Corsa is the Italian tradition of coloring their race cars red. Different teams use different shades of red, but all you need to know is that Italian racing simply equals the color red. That should explain the bright red face of this watch. Fashion types who love red will appreciate the color without understanding the nature of Rosso Corsa.

MOONWATCH ONLY – 60 Years of OMEGA Speedmaster

"Fortis is opening up its Private Label Program to any US or Canadian business or group wanting fine Swiss timepieces for members, staff, or clients at costs far below their respective retail prices. Buying in bulk gets a great price. We reduce prices substantially for our private label customers. Of course, the final cost will depend upon quantity required, colors used, and any add-ons, such as engraving the watch back (e.g., “2012 top sales division,” “National Pennant winners, 2012″). Fortis offers private label clients a wide selection of mechanical timepieces, as well as watches from its lower-retail Fortis Colors quartz line, and only 25 watches are needed for a minimum order. Delivery can take from two weeks to six months, depending on the number of watches ordered and the extent of customization requested."

It is easy to tell the time on all of these? Not at all. For me the BR 01 Radar series was cool, but mentally the hardest to read. At the same time, I think the BR 01 Altimeter is super easy to read - and is non-coincidentally my favorite piece. Visually, the BR 01 Turn Coordinator is pretty interesting. It uses the same system as the BR 01 Compass to tell the time, which are discs instead of hands. You read the time where the numbers line up via the vertical line that goes down the middle. There is a small disc in the center for the running seconds. I think it would have been really cool for Bell & Ross to include the level ball in liquid on the timepiece as well.

What Burberry does however make clear is that the Britain watch is meant to be influenced by their iconic trench coat design. For those young people who don't know, Burberry is actually a coat company. The rest of that stuff came later. The design of the watches is a bit trench warfare looking, but you'll need to decide for yourself if you see a lot in common with the trench coat. I personally don't own one so I am not the best judge of their similarities.

The hands are strong and actually skeletonized hands that I will stand behind. Integration of the Swiss ETA Valjoux 7751 movement is extremely clever. I always like to mention how this is a very difficult movement to design around due to the emptiness on the right side of the dial. What Ferragamo did was create a visual heaviness at the bottom of the dial with the silvered area around the moon phase indicator. What this does is pretty much make you forget that the left side of the dial is more cluttered and the right. Nice work right?

MTM is an American company based out of here in Los Angeles. You get that nice "USA" label on the back of the case in addition to their dagger logo. I think they should supply a dagger like that with the watches. You do however get a nice Pelican case carrrying box. Those cases are damn useful actually. Inside the MTM Falcon as I said is a custom made movement for MTM. It is quartz, and I believe Japanese. The Titanium Black on Black Falcon is among the more expensive pieces in the collection at a price of 0. The Falcon pieces however start at about 0 in steel. This piece might be worth the additional expense because the combo of titanium and DLC coating offer reduced weight without the easy scratching you usually get with naked titanium. You can get this and other MTM timepieces via their website here.

You can kind of see the correlation between the brand and its founders when you meet and speak to Jorn and Morten. Both are quite young guys in terms of watch brand CEOs, and their personalities really show through their watches. Like active but with some refined qualities (is that another way of saying sports luxury? I didn't want to use that term...oh well I've just used it now!). I find it easy to relate to these guys and also their products because I am personally someone that also shares a lot of the same ideas and interests. So for this small feature I wanted to break away from shots of the watches and kind of show a bit more personality that I find appealing about them.

In the watch industry, safes have most recently been combined with watch winders and other hobby "furniture" Brands I have written about such as Dottling and Buben and Zorweg have transformed the stalwart safe into a bona fide high-end lifestyle item. No longer something to hide in a closet or behind a false wall, they made the safe a beautiful piece of furniture to be flaunted - complete with built-in stereo, humidor, and whiskey cabinet. These companies helped make the safe itself a luxury item - in addition to the items it was meant to store.
