Of course, what most people will notice about the Swarovski Piazza Mesh is the strap, which has a white leather inner lining and a mesh of set Swarovski crystals. The buckle is magnetic, and you actually need to take in the strap to have it sized - which is an inconvenience. With that said, it is among the most distinctive straps around, and for women who like the idea of a nice looking yet original watch with a very shiny strap, I think the Swarovski Piazza Mesh will hit the spot.
Speaking of entry-level, the lowest price watch in this group is also one of the most attractive, with its simple vintage military styling inspired by 1940s Bulova watches. I am talking about the Bulova Accutron II Military 96B229. The 42m wide (10.8mm thick) steel case looks to be thematically like an original Rolex Oyster watch from 1926 - only bigger with its cushion shape and coined-edge bezel. Water resistant to 100 meters, the Military is matched to a green fabric strap and is easily the most mainstream and fashionable of the bunch. The black and white dial has just a hint of red and looks to be really legible (even though it appears that the minute and hour hands are a bit too similar in size). I like that the date window has been integrated into 6 o'clock with a matching color disc!
When you think of watch-related cufflinks, you probably think of the ones that use salvaged vintage movements, generally in rectangular shapes. While those are interesting in their own right, what we have with the Baz Persaud Horological Cuff Links is something that is a good deal more elegant and refined. For starters, lets talk material. The cufflinks themselves are made of solid sterling silver, and then plated with either white rhodium (to match the finish of many white gold watches) or rose gold. How do we get to the designs they are producing? Well, that is a bit more of a time-consuming process.
The L688 has been a strong movement for Longines, as they attempt to corner the market at their price point. Running at 4 Hz, the L688 offers a maximum chronograph record of 12 hours and has a power reserve of 54 hours.
