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!

To further appeal to an aficionado's burgeoning collection, Longines would be a nice throw-back model to gift. This brand, with the handsome face of Andre Agassi immediately eliciting images of strength and competition, is a true classic that happens to be moderately priced. Especially the Longines Sport Collection - Grande Vitesse. This attractive chronograph exhibits watchmaking expertise at its best. And at the price of ,500 or so, that is truly a steal.

Despite the unorthodox design of the case, the Cameo is still water resistant to 100 meters. No doubt the screw down crown and screw secured caseback assist this. I like knowing that I don’t need to be too delicate with the watch, as it is perfect for causal or formal wear. The rear of the watch features an exhibition caseback with a view into the moderately decorated movement. Perlage polishing coat some exposed parts of the movement, with cotes de Geneve polish is applied to the Temption signed rotor. A few nice details are included on the back — including the numbered watch as part of the 500 limited edition, as well as part of Temption’s design theory in Latin, “pulchritudo in claritate,” or “beauty and simplicity.” On the side of the case is a tiger's eye gem cabochon set in the crown.

You can tell that the new Polo Forty Five watch is something new for them. The first titanium Piaget watch, and certain the most sporty. As I have mentioned before, I think this is also the first Piaget watch to ever use a rubber strap. It is an evolution on the Polo theme, and we will see where the new direction takes Piaget. Another benefit of videos like this is the actual images of the watch. Too often we are presented with computer watch renderings that just to give enough of a story. While I love such imagery, it doesn't give you the full view that you want to have. At well over ,000, the new Piaget Polo Forty Five watches are no bargain (and even more for the chronograph version pictured), even given their in-house Piaget made movements. Check out the video and see what you think, these are always fun to watch.

This particular watch is the very limited edition of 10 pieces Magrette Kupe's Voyage based on their Regattare model line. The reason it is limited is because each beautifully decorated bezel is hand engraved by New Zealand artist Andrew Biggs. The same artist also creates other limited editions for the brand that offer similar (but different) engraved bezels on the Magrette watch line, such as the Ta Manaia. The best part of all this is the price. How often can you get a limited edition mechanical watch with hand engraving for just ,585? You'll also notice that the Magrette Regattare has a striking resemblance to Anonimo watches. Probably not a coincidence, but not a bad thing either as the Magrette watches cost at least half of the Italian Anonimo watches.

Digging deeper into the functionality of the watch you'll continue to appreciate how nicely designed the operating system of the watch is. On-screen instructions are incredibly helpful, and absent in competitor watches. It is nice to have the watch say "Hold To Reset," while pressing a button to let you know how to use the function. This is very welcome indeed, and like I said, something you really don't see in most watches. I typically gloss over a lot of the functionality when it comes to the logging functions, but the included graph combined with the easy to use metrics makes it a breeze to use. Play with it for a bit and you'll know what I mean. You will however need to calibrate some of the functions yourself - but the instructions on doing this are pretty simple, so expect to sit down with the watch for an hour or so when you first get it to figure it out and go over all the settings and calibration. In addition to the user manual, Timex throws in a larger quick reference guide with lots of pictures that helps make using the Expedition WS4 watch as simple as possible.

What I really love about the Daniel Roth Endurer Chronosprint watch is the design. Even without knowing what the design is based on the watch looks good. Then, when you are able to understand what Daniel Roth was emulating, you get a new found appreciate for it. The design influence comes from an implement of the ancient Japanese martial art called Kendo, which is sometimes referred to as “Japanese fencing.” With an active Kendo community all over the work today, the fighters can be recognized by their traditional projective garb and wooden sword. The ‘Kendoka’ mask has a bit of a fearsome though recognizable look to it with use of protective thick horizontal metal bars on the case, and an enclosed head with protective neck and shoulder pads.

You have to realize that what the engraver is doing in the video is really hard. They make it look easy, but they have been doing it for years. Most of their tools they even make themselves. Applying the right amount of pressure, being able to articulate shapes, and not making mistakes takes years of training. I actually tried doing this myself under a microscope in Germany, it is not easy to get anything that doesn't look like a bunch of random scratches. In the video the engraver at Audemars Piguet designs a rope motif which makes the exposed parts of the movement plate, rotor, and bridges look like threaded rope. The engraving process on a watch like the Jules Audemars Equation of Time Skeletonized can take weeks if not months. The same engraver does a lot of the work and must do everything carefully. All the effort does pay off in the end, and the decorated "competition" quality movements look phenomenal. So again, why all the work? Because that is really part of luxury. Your expensive watch has been lovingly decorated by masters in their field using time honored techniques without a hint of robotic programming or synthetic style. It is all by hand, and it is all by professionals. It is important to see them in action as just viewing the final result doesn't tell you the entire story. Once you realize how long they put into it, that 0,000 plus price tag starts to make a lot more sense.

The 585XLTMXB and 585XLTMXM watches are traditional two-hand (no seconds) watches with full titanium cases and bracelets. The faces are totally minimalistic with just the hour indicators and thin hands used for quick reference by the wearer, not everyone around him. I like how the crystal shape integrates with the bracelet design, something you don't see everyday. The watch case is thin at only 8mm, and the case is 38mm wide. A quartz movement powers the watches, and Skagen is nice enough to provide a lifetime movement warranty. They can easily do this as problems with the movements are very rare (and they don't cost that much anyway).

I am excited to see what else comes from this brand as they are positioning themselves very well, in my opinion. Too often brands get caught up in trends and competing with each other that the very art of innovation gets lost. I hope that RSW continues to move forward with blinders on, creating their own real path.

Hands-On With The Perrelet Turbine Double Rotor Watch Collection Hands-On

This watch is dedicated to the story of Kupe's Voyage, a Maori tale about Polynesian adventure and folklore. The story describes how Islanders first came to the New Zealand land mass to settle, complete with the trial and tribulations. It is  almost like a Maori version of Columbus, but without all the controversy and killing of the natives. These were the real ocean adventurers who traveled for thousands of miles not in galleons, but canoes.

The hour markers on the black colored dial as well as the hands have luminant. It isn't the strongest lume, but it suffices for most near darkness viewing. A curious part of the watch is the style of the mineral crystal. It is slightly domed, which creates a mild lens affect (not sure if this was an intentional part of the design). It also has an anti-reflective coating that you can tell because light sometimes reflects blue against the crystal. The effect of the crystal is that the dial looks a bit distorted when looked at from an extreme angle. Looking at the dial from most angles is clear and crisp. The lens also seems to magnify the dial at certain angles. Just a little quirk of the watch.

Robert Lighton New York has had a line of nice watches for a while. Apparently that will cease to be the case as they are closing that side of the business (I blame poor marketing and distribution). Thus, they are closing out their inventory - and the sale is incredible with 55-75% off already fair retail prices. I was fortunate to learn about the sale from my friend at FratelloWatches, who learned about the sale before me. I don't know how many of the watches are left, but there is a nice selection to look from.
