I don't like the big chunky bling that men are wearing these days. It's like a muscle car for your wrist. I prefer refinement, like the original Movado Museum. It never screams status, but I'll bet it opens doors like they were on air bearings.

I also used to have the watch posted by Mr-914, until it got bashed and the bezel broke. You can't tell from the pic, but it is only about twice the thickness of a Swatch Skin. It looks even thinner because of the side profile.

This is my current watch. Light as a feather... can't even feel it sometimes.

Tourbilloin Mechanism- "A device in some mechanical watches that eliminates timekeeping errors caused by slight variations due to shifts in gravity when a watch changes position during use. The round carriage or "cage" of the tourbillon holds the mechanisms that rotate the wheels, and thus the hands of the watch, in a continuous rate of once per minute." - like a gyroscope on a watch!

Its a $55K watch and not a lot people can make the movement


Thanks!- LED watches are making a comeback however LED technology consumes a lot of power...

It rocks , and the watchismo link is cool as well.
This Final fantasy stuff is amazing.
I'm gonna post the pix of Bulova accutron spaceview for all to see (first electronic watch, i read, before quartz, it was used by nasa in space missions, along with Omega, apparently (they fitted the accutron system in the spaceships)
Not manufactured anymore since 70s. Such a shame.

It had a "tuning fork" wich vibrates between two coils to give the rythm, awesome.

And Tag Heuer Monaco V4

Far too cool for plain people's pockets.[/i]

Did you guys see the last post on the core77 blog.
Thanks to stucon, for mentioning this thread. This is now, my favourite thread of the season. :D

Anyways, about this watch (I think its called pimp), How do you really tell the time. I was trying to figure that out, and in the picture below, Im thinking, it's 5:38? So is that correct? The website says, it tells the time, day and date. Anyone know?
