Indulge in a venerable orgy of carbon fiber as it caresses your wrist and arouses your eyes. I just made myself laugh with that last comment. But really, for carbon fiber watch lovers, you'll be happy to know Bell & Ross is there for you. In more ways one - case, strap, and dial. New in this BR01 limited edition watch collection are two all carbon fiber watch. The BR01-92 (three hand) and BR01-94 (chronograph). You'll further notice that the watches pick up the "Pro" styling that was first seen in the BR01-94 Pro Titanium watch discussed here.
eBay is my default place to go for just about anything - especially watches. While eBay isn't liked going to have the particular watches from the above special retailers, it is going to have over 300,000 watches with great deals available for whatever, or whoever you are looking for. Use their search tools to find out exactly what you need, and get it in minutes. Need suggestions? Use the tools there and try searching for women's watch under 0 from sellers located in North America (I most always use this last option for quick shipping situations). How about vintage gold watches under ,000? You can search for more than one item at a time, but using a "search in the alternative" query like this for example, "watch (swatch, tissot, omega)." That will have eBay look for either items with "swatch, tissot, or omega" and the term "watch" in it. eBay can easily supplement your holiday watch purchase needs, or be your one stop shop - especially if you know what you want.
For a lot of people who are interested in entering the world of mechanical watches for the first time, a cool Swatch like this is a good choice. It is also a good choice for people who aren't really prepared to spend higher "luxury" amounts on more expensive mechanical watches. Priced at between 0 - 0, the Swatch Automatic Chrono is an incredible value for what you can. Plus, you really can't find Swiss made mechanical chronograph movements for less! There is a world of people out there that are destined to enjoy these Swiss watches,with Swiss style, without the Swiss price.
I don't think that the popular Valjoux line of movements will stop being used, in fact I think they will be used quite a bit, but expect to see new Valgranges watches in many of the watches that will be coming out - already a good deal of watches have the Valgranges movements that have been out for a little while. Let's look over the new movements.
I have been fascinated with this Breguet watch model since I wrote an article on Luxist a while ago about how it was seen on the wrist of Russian president Dmitri Medvedev. By the way, the above image is from Antiquroum via this webpage here. You can blame Breuget for not having enough images of their watches floating around the internet. So you probably know that Breuget is the king of "old school" watch brands. The love of Swatch Group kingpin (Chairman) Nicolas Hayek, and founder way back when by the father of modern watch making. Abraham Louis Breguet himself. The brand keeps mulling forth with classic watch creations that refuse to modernize - and that is a good thing.
This is the ugliest watch case I think I have personally ever seen. What is so ironic is that the watch movement and dial itself are just fine, and totally mismatched with the watch case. This timepiece gets a "Fraggle Rock's Finest Award" for most cartoon rock formation style watch ever. What was Andre Checa thinking when he designed this watch? He was likely watching episodes of old Jim Henson Muppet television shows or movies. I get the watch, I just don't like it. This is another "home run" design from the radical French artist.You might remember the first quizzical creation of his that I discussed here (that he made as a piece unique for Romain Jerome).
Swarovski is making bold moves, ladies! (Guys, be at least idly aware).
