Secondly, the PAM579's dial has been changed to a different shade of brown from that of the predecessor PAM345. Its hands and indexes coated with tan colored SuperLuminova give this new model an appearance that not only matches the brand's more recent offerings, but also lends the watch what I would call a more vintage mood. And it is that timeless look that so many fans of the brand began to love and expect, with it perhaps being more authentic and in greater harmony with the brand's communicated history. With a consistently large demand for similarly styled pieces, this special edition of only 300 pieces will likely sell out fast.
When Girard-Perregaux announced its Constant Escapement at Baselworld 2013, it was immediately considered to be one of the most impressive technological developments, not only of that year's fair, but in the brand's more than 220 years long history as well. Incorporating a constant force mechanism into a wristwatch movement is an immense challenge and one that resulted in numerous spectacular, albeit often compromised results. What allowed GP to leave the space-consuming fusee's, chains and other devices out of the equation was the utilization of a space-age material called silicon.

So how does the Oris Big Crown ProPilot Altimeter watch work? It is pretty straight-forward, actually. The timekeeping part of the watch is an Oris caliber 733, which is a base Swiss Sellita SW200 automatic movement which sits in the middle of the case on top of a module. A stem from the movement extends to the crown at 2 o'clock, which allows you to wind or adjust the timekeeping part of the ProPilot Altimeter.
Many of you might regard Cartier as a jewelry brand, but did you that they were in fact one of the pioneers of wrist watches? Today the brand makes some very high-end and exciting pieces, such as Rotonde de Cartier Astrocalendaire Watch, but their roots were simpler, though no less important. Here is a look at some very early Cartier watches.
Note that the Meta must be secured to a USB-connected dock for charging. This also probably helped keep the size smaller, but the Meta still isn't "small" in size. Does it look sexy? I don't think I'd go that far, but it is certainly among the better looking smartwatches and is most definitely a step in the right direction. Meta is calling their watch a "premium smartwatch" and that it exists as part of the natural ecosystem of user and smartphone. Like most other smartwatches, the Meta merely tells time on its own without a smartphone companion. Its primary "smart" purpose is to connect with a Bluetooth enabled smartphone to deliver updates and notifications.

It might sound like a silly question, but why is it that you want a watch? Do you want to know what time it is? Perhaps you want to impress your friends or ladies? Perhaps you love history and want a timepiece that is indicative of an era or person. People who consider themselves watch collectors have no shortage of motivations and interests in the watches they buy. Perhaps you simply feel like you've reached a point in your life that merits rewarding yourself? These are all common (and good reasons) for getting a watch.
One should not forget that the Omega Speedmaster began life as a racing watch. This "Ms Speed" imagination of the Omega Speedmaster Dark Side Of The Moon goes back to the Speedmaster's track heritage but also combines it with some interesting femininity. Niklas thinks the intentionally androgynous look of the Ms Speed Omega Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon comments on our own gender perceptions when it comes to design. When it comes down to it, is the watch for men or women? Does it even matter?

A cable from the Exosuit goes back up to the support vessel, offering power and oxygen. The system is designed to allow for the diver to last up to 50 hours in the suit if needed. The suit has all types of communication equipment and information gathering gadgets. The diver controls the legs and arm manipulators, and the feet have propulsion systems to allow the diver to maneuver and get back to the surface.
One of the last things I was expecting from Cartier for 2014 was a dive watch, and now that we have one I can barely imagine not wanting it. That is how the peculiar "desire engine" of the watch industry works. As mixed up and backwards as the industry may be, it still has the power to create items that I suddenly desire which I would have never thought appealing until they were brought to my attention. I am not even sure that a dive watch from the famously elegant and classy Parisian brand makes sense on paper, but now that one exists I sort of really want it. Yes, there are Cartier "sport" watches... but a legit diver, water resistant to 300 meters that you can still wear with a tie and be taken seriously by Europeans taste makers? I didn't think it possible but the Calibre Diver is it.
