    Closer Look at Seiko SKX013

    Seiko is one of the oldest and most knowledgeable watchmaking companies in the world. The brand has had a lot of success and experience. Seiko still strives to achieve new heights with the same zeal and zest. Which was all from its founder, a mere 22-year-old Kintaro Hattori. He opened a small repair shop where he would indulge in designing a few wristwatches for his towns’ folk. Hattori had dedication, discipline, put in the hard work, and willingness to achieve more and more. The drive to be better and to learn resulted in Seikosha. That was a company where Hattori designed his very first wall clock. Just a few more seasons later, Hattori successfully created Japan’s very first pocket watch. This act is one of the huge milestones for Japanese watchmaking art. It later resulted in Hattori designing Japan’s first wristwatch soon after – the Laurel. Bouncing Back  Seikosha was burned to the ground after the Great Kanto earthquake, though they rebuilt everything quickly. The designers at Seiko started using different technologies to create Diashock – shock-resistant devices. These components were supposed to protect the minor and sensitive parts from breaking apart if the wristwatch falls for any unforeseen reason. The years went on, but Hattori spent his days and nights working on a new era of timepieces. Soon after, Seiko’s pocket watch was appointed the Japan National Railway’s official railway watch. Seiko’s Firsts From first automatic chronograph and quartz watch to six-digit LCD quartz watch and multi-function digital watch, Seiko also claims to be the first at designing diver’s watch and the TV watch. Seiko has its fair share of firsts under its belt as well. The manufacturers at Seiko really outdid themselves when they somehow managed to fit a TV into the wristwatch. If that was not enough, they went ahead and added a voice note and analog quartz, and a number of computer functions, among other things. They may not be seen adorned by the A-listers on red carpets of after parties in Hollywood. But die-hard wristwatch lovers and experts still know where the true essence of wristwatch’s history lie, and where it all started. A Closer Look at the Affordable SKX013 Seiko has a number of incredible timepieces and designs. Seiko SKX series is the divers’ wristwatch designed by the company. The SKX series timepieces are extremely affordable, yes, but they are tough as nails, and almost nothing can ruin the timepiece or the mechanics that they entail. The popular, well-designed, and well-made timepieces are also long-lasting and better than before. Seiko SKX013 is, unofficially, one of the most affordable timepieces. Despite being easy on the pockets, the wristwatch does not compromise on quality. This particular series is resilient, artistically crafted, and has the highest amount of precision. If you are a hardcore fan of the 007 model, you are going to love this one as well. To the naked eye, or if you are not paying close attention, it will look almost exactly the same. However, it is slightly dainty looking than the 007. Beating the odds and all stereotypes with the timepiece being highly affordable, Seiko SKX013 is a grab- at-first-sight kind of watch. It offers the luxury and fashion and all the works of the timepiece that comes with Seiko all the while being affordable as well. Seiko SKX013’s Functions ThisSeiko SKX013 timepiece has an analog display with at least two years of warranty to boot. It had forty one hours’ worth of power reserve. A round case with a solid case back and uni-directional bezel. It had the screw-down crown and the stainless steel case. All of this adds up to present the timepiece from one of the most experienced companies, working their best to provide for every client and keeping their pockets and range in mind. The water-resistant timepiece has a safety lock feature as well. This particular diver’s wristwatch has been able to grab and maintain attention for quite a few respectable people and at respectable arenas. Truth be told, Seiko SKX013 may not be the most fashionable or fancy wristwatches that have come under the brand of Seiko, but an automatic timepiece which can truly stand the test of time and brutal surroundings is a pretty awesome deal.  In 1964, the designers at Seiko left the world in a daze by adding the function of a stopwatch into the tiny dial of the wristwatch. Seiko – A Redefining Era Over the years, the management and CEOs have changed; however, the drive that Hattori had back then has somehow managed to creep its way through the century into the current manufacturers and designers. They still work vigorously to improve their designs, add modern novelties, yet keep their ancestor’s essence and message alive. To top it all, Seiko is, to date, considered the Japanese powerhouse of all the wristwatches. They’re an uncrowned king of all affordable timepieces. Bearing in mind that the manufacturers at Seiko create all the required components in-house and have never outsourced their work. Nor do they plan to do so, being affordable is a big feat. All in all, the Seiko SKX013 does not have the overall profile or the aura of 007, but it can rival the best from even Seiko itself at any given moment.

  4. Why the Omega Railmaster is a Classic

    Why the Omega Railmaster is a Classic

    The first-ever Omega Railmaster watch, the CK2914, was first released in 1957. It was a part of Omega’s collection of tool watches, which also included the Seamaster and Speedmaster. There’s a lot to learn about the Railmaster and what makes it one of the many classic watches. The Birth of the Omega Railmaster The Railmaster was essentially designed for scientists and electrical engineers. What made it stood out from its other two siblings in tool watches is its anti-magnetic shielding which served as protection from the movement. Over the years, there have been several attempts to protect various watches from magnetic fields. Although the damage is invisible to the naked eye, magnetic fields tend to damage crucial and delicate parts of the watch as well as the balance spring and the escapement. To put it simply, the magnetic field can easily mess with the watch’s accuracy and with a job like that of a scientist or an electrical engineer, magnetic fields can’t be avoided. Omega Railmaster – Protecting the Movement With a Faraday Cage, the CK2914 was able to protect the movement and made the watch resistant to up to 1000 Gauss. Omega placed a NuMetal plate on the case back, thus protecting the movement under the case from magnetic fields. In its initial edition, Omega opted for the 30T2 movement which was later renamed Calibers 284, 285, and then 286. For added magnetic resistance, the company decided to make the dial to be 1mm thick instead of their usual 0.4mm. Features of the Omega Railmaster With a 38mm case, the Railmaster was made using stainless steel and was water-resistant to up to 200 feet. It also didn’t have a screw-down crown. Instead, there is a Naiad crown that pushes tighter against the seals with increasing water pressure. The watch also has a bold and beautiful black dial that house white Arabic numerals along with triangular hour markers. While this is the company’s one of the most iconic designs for Omega watches, the Railmaster didn’t receive the popularity it should have. The watch also has different variations with rare, different colored dials. One of these rare models includes a version with a white dial and leaf-shaped hands. Throughout the production of Omega Railmaster, the company used different kinds of hands, including broad arrow, baton, and dauphine hands. 2.0 In the early 1960s, the company began the production of a new version of the Railmaster. The dial was white and all the hour markers were black numerals instead of the iconic triangles. Some versions of this model also had the hours for twenty-four time mentioned in red beside the black number. However, this model didn’t really last for long in the market, and the company didn’t produce any more Omega Railmaster watches until 2003. The Revival of Omega Railmaster Omega’s line up of watches skipped out on the Railmaster until 2003. That’s when the company began reinventing themselves by producing more calibers with co-axial escapements. For this purpose, the Railmaster seemed to be the ideal fit. It could flawlessly live up to the technical achievements that were put forward by the newly-introduced co-axial escapement. Thus, the new Railmaster came with three sizes (36mm, 39mm, and 42mm), and as a first, it has a chronograph too. It is further equipped with an Aqua Terra style case, an exhibition case back, a screw-down crown, and slightly twisted lugs. However, this particular version didn’t have any special anti-magnetic properties. This version of the Railmaster seemed to be the ideal watch for all watch enthusiasts. However, it didn’t sell as well as the company had hoped and it again pulled the line back in 2012. More Recently At Baselworld 2017, Omega released two new versions of the Railmasters. The first was the Railmaster 60th Anniversary model, designed physically the samel. Therefore, it has the same hands, same dial, same 38mm case, and even the same bracelet. However, it does have modern movement, and instead of tritium, it has faux patina. Due to the silicium parts in the escapement, the Calibre 8806 of this watch is up to fifteen times more resistant to magnetic fields than the original caliber. The new Railmaster watch, however, is an entry-priced model that houses the most recent Omega movements. It’s pretty clear why this one is a classic and why it should be in every watch connoisseurs’ collection. In this model, there’s an actual and genuine appreciation for the Railmaster lineage. It has the same triangular hour markers as well as Arabic numbers at the 12, 3, 6, and 9 positions. Running along the dial of the brushed dial, there are new baton hands as well as a crosshair. The case measures 40mm wide and is water resistance to up to 150m. Like the original model, this doesn’t have a screw-down crown, closed steel case back, and a printed case.

  5. Bell and Ross Watches for Men

    Bell and Ross Watches for Men

    Bell and Ross Watches Watches have always been the best of all accessories; there is no right or wrong time to wear a watch. Whether you are attending a formal o a casual event, a watch will go perfectly with your attire. A quality watch that is backed by a Swiss brand will stay with you till the end of time. Rolex, Omega, or Audemars Piguet are the brands that come to one’s mind for luxury watches. These are the ultimate giants of watchmaking, but that’s not true. There are many contemporary watchmakers that have made a big name in watchmaking. One of these many brands is Bell and Ross. The watches manufactured by Bell and Ross are known for the unique design as well as their impeccable detailing. Bell and Ross watches are among the best watches for men, and that too with good reason. Here is why you should definitely invest in a Bell and Ross watch. The Beginning Bell and Ross launched their operation in 1992; this makes them pretty new in the business if you compare them with the likes of Rolex and Omega. The eagerness to prove themselves among the very best makes them good competition. Where other watchmakers have had the experience of centauries, Bell and Ross have decades under their belt, but that didn’t stop them from challenging the giants with their detailing and precision. The company was started by two best mates, Belamich (Bell) and Rosillo (Ross) with the help of German watchmaker by the name of Sinn. The most popular Bell and Ross watches are: 1: The Instruments The design of the Bell and Ross Instruments watch is an inspiration of an aircraft’s cockpit. Needless to say, the precision and detail on this watch are faultless. It’s one of the most popular watches of Bell and Ross. 2: BR Diving Watch Bell and Ross believes that a watch is more than just a time-telling piece and that motto has made them make expert watches for different professions that need the precision of timing more than anything. Their professional diver watches can go as deep as 1000 ft. 3: The Hydromax This watch is an innovative design that is filled with hydraulic fluid. The hydraulic fluid helps to counter external pressure. Made to withstand a ton of pressure, the watch is perfect for divers, racers as well as astronauts. Though the initial watches were designed by Sinn, they had the Bell and Ross logo on them. The partnership wasn’t as strong as the consumers were led to believe and in the year 2002, the company parted ways with their German companion and launched their own production by the name of Bell and Ross, in the heart of La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland. This was the brief history of Bell and Ross; now it’s time to check out whether the watches are a good value for money or not? Worth and Value of The Bell and Ross Watches A branded watch is a huge investment; you can’t just get one overnight. For a lot of people, a watch can be their most prized passion, so they have to give the investment a great deal of thought before procuring one. On average, a Bell and Ross watch will cost you around $2,000-3,000. And if you are a serious collector, you are looking at an impressive amount of $20,000 for a higher model. As for the value for money, the watches are a true fashion piece; they are designed to be flaunted. It’s perfect for people who crave attention and are always in the limelight for one thing or other. I’d seriously recommend Bell, and Ross watches if you are looking to impress your friends who happen to be watch collectors. Almost all Bell and Ross watches feature a robust square dial. The design, as well as the size, makes these watches stand out more than anything else. It’s their claim that Bell and Ross watches are given a square shape as it sits comfortably on any wrist and comparing it to the round-shaped watches, they do look pretty comfy. Their Movements Most of the watch collectors dismiss Bell and Ross watches saying that since they use ETA movement, their quality isn’t that good. However, this is taking things to the extreme; you can’t dismiss the quality on movement solely; there are many factors that make a watch work. Using ETA movement is very practical as well as a sensible step, as in-house movement will need time, effort, resource, and a lot of funds. Moreover, the ETA movement is altered by the maker to make it unique and according to their taste. ETA has a COSC certificate, and it’s also proven to be of great reliability as well as gives a durable performance. ETA itself boasts great performance and reliability in various grades with the top specs having COSC certification. That is more than you can say for Swiss watches as only 3% of the brands come with COSC certificate. ETA movement is a lot easier to fix compared to Rolex, so you have a great looking watch that is easy to maintain as well as amend. Conclusion  Bell and Ross watches are truly the best watches for men as they are an affordable luxury brand that gives you value for money. Furthermore, Bell and Ross watches are waterproof that makes them the perfect daily wear watch ever. The Diver collection is water-resistant; considering the profession of diver, that is an important trait.

  6. What Is A Midnight Planetarium Watch?

    What Is A Midnight Planetarium Watch?

    In the deep and fascinating world of horology, there’s a lot to remember. One can easily lose sight of just how spellbinding the careful and intricate assortment of features can be. Once in a while, you come across something special. A special watch like the Midnight Planetarium watch from Van Cleef & Arpels. The watch illustrates exquisite artistry and an elegant interplay of mechanics.  The timepiece is designed with a tiny solar system which revolves around the dial in perfect harmony. If you used this watch for 29 years, you’d see Saturn complete its orbit around the dial. To completely understand this horological masterpiece, let’s delve deeper into its design and mechanics! The Minds Behind the Solar System Watch The flawless timepiece is part of Van Cleef & Arpels’ Poetic Complications collection, which includes wristwatches with elegant and precise mechanical animations. The Midnight Planetarium watch was designed to break the monotony of watchmaking. The Poetic Complication series combines the patient and gentle art of watchmaking with the thrilling secrets of astronomy, creating a truly unique masterpiece. With the goal of creating an extraordinary representation of the vast solar system, Van Cleef & Arpels employed the help and expertise of Christiaan Van Der Klaauw – the foremost astronomical horologer. This is the company’s most complex timepiece to date. It’s a custom planetarium module that was developed by Christian van der Klaauw Astronomical Watches. The piece took two and a half years to be completed. Boasting a movement manufactured by the Richemont Group, the complicated mechanism comprises of a total of 396 parts. The most difficult part was to make the planetary mechanism both elegant and easy to operate. The timepiece was designed with two pushers which control the year, month, and day. The Midnight’s Contemporary Design Watches are typically designed for telling the time, right? But the Midnight solar system watch takes this mundane task one step further. The watch follows the orbits of the planets in our solar system. The six celestial bodies visible to the naked eye move around the dial, tracing their real-time motions around the sun. Meanwhile, a comet indicates the more practical time of day. A few years back, Van Cleef & Arpels developed a day-night watch, in which the sun and moon alternated over 24 hours for dominance on the dial. The timepiece was innovative and elegant, but not spectacular. Then, the company designed a constellation watch, a wrist-sized sky map as seen from the beautiful Paris sky. The timepiece was certainly more attractive but still wasn’t able to stimulate pure, unmitigated desire and fascination. But then, they released the Midnight Planetarium, a timepiece designed with an alluring replica of our vast solar system.  It comprises of all six planets visible to the naked eye from Earth. Each of them following its orbit in real-time around the tiny rose-gold sun. Mercury will complete its orbit in only 88 days. Saturn will diligently move around the dial for 29 years to complete a single orbit. You can even set a ‘lucky day,’ on which Earth will align with the star engraved on the sapphire face once a year. The timepiece is designed with a pink shooting star which moves around the outer orbit, indicating the 24 hours of the day. Other Midnight Planetarium Watch Features The pink rose gold case is not necessarily small and measures 44mm in diameter. The size goes perfectly with the modest thickness of the case, which measures about 13mm. As a result, the watch elegantly encapsulates the wrist, despite the structuring of the module on top of the movement. While the timepiece stays true to its roots as well by adding a hint of geology. Each celestial body is its own rock. With Mercury being a chunk of serpentine, blue agate for Jupiter and turquoise for our home planet. Also chloromelanite for Venus, sugilite for Saturn, and lastly, red jasper for Mars. Price and Availability If you visit the Planetarium’s product page, you won’t find a price tag. This is because the masterpiece is a limited edition. It will be produced in quantities of twenty to thirty pieces per year. However, one of the most interesting things about this watch is that it isn’t an extremely rare piece, but a production model. Considering other watches in the industry and those within the Poetic Complications collection itself, Van Cleef & Arpels has truly achieved something unique and wondrous. Usually, when companies try to create an ‘artistic’ timepiece, the result if often underwhelming. The watch either has too many finishes, too many diamonds, or an unmoving assortment of costly materials. Although the Midnight Planetarium is certainly a luxury object, it achieves much more. It captivates and entrances the long-enduring need to explore, admire, and explain the many secrets and mysteries of the universe. Conclusion of the Midnight Planetarium Watch The Midnight Planetarium watch enables you to carry not only the world but the entire universe with you at all times. Integrating the technical virility with the sheer marvel and wonder of the universe, Van Cleef & Arpels have truly achieved a horological masterpiece.

  7. Panerai Straps: How to Choose the Right One

    Panerai Straps: How to Choose the Right One

    The one brand that comes to every watch lover’s mind when talking about luxury is always Panerai. Panerai is one of the most popular and most successful luxury watch manufacturers. They have created the best-looking timepieces that are every man’s favorite accessories since 1860. It is an Italian brand, founded by Giovanni Panerai in 1860. The brand is widely popular for its Swiss-made watches and watch accessories too. By incorporating the highest quality in-house movements and ETA movements, Panerai watches have set a high bar in the market. However, with luxury watches comes a need for luxury accessories and maintenance. And that’s why Panerai is everyone’s favorite brand to choose when it’s about luxury watches. Not only does Panerai qualify as the top brand in watch manufacturing, but it also has the best accessories such as watch straps. Why Are Watch Straps Important? Many people often overlook the importance of watch straps and lay more focus on the dial and the functioning of the watch. Of course, the primary priorities should be the features of the watch, such as its resistance to water and the look of its dial. However, when it comes to selecting one watch to represent your style, watch straps are very important. They provide style and define your taste in fashion. Plus, the kind of strap you wear also determines the level of comfort and ease you will have. A complicated, poorly designed strap will be difficult to tie and will also look tacky. On the other hand, a high quality strap such as one made out of fine quality leather will ensure comfort and elegance both. What Kind of Panerai Straps Are Available? Considering the wide range of Panerai’s high quality products, it’s obvious that they also have a diverse range of different straps too. Some of the most common and most popular Panerai straps are leather straps, which are available in a wide range of colors too. Their popular range of calf straps is the Luminor Due Straps. These are available in various tones and are all equally as elegant. They also have tone-on-tone watch straps. Such straps have the same-colored stitching on their borders, which gives them a simple and attractive look. On the other hand, there are also caoutchouc straps. These are highly comfortable and easy to wear. They are basically made of natural rubber which gives them a durable and strong built. A Buyer’s Guide to Choosing the Right Panerai Strap If you have bought a Panerai watch a long time ago and want to renew its look without having to buy another timepiece, then it’s time for you to buy a new Panerai strap. Panerai straps are easy to change and have full detailed guidance on their website too. However, the bigger question is how to know which watch strap you should buy? The Look The first and foremost important factor to consider when buying watch straps is to match it with your watch’s design. The dial of the watch is extremely important, that’s why the color of the dial, the color and the finish of the hour markers and the hands are all important. Make sure that the watch strap you buy matches and complements the color theme of the dial. For example, if your dial is all gold with gold-tone hands and hour markers, then you should go for a strap that is more subtle such as a beige, brown, or black leather strap. Contrasting a light tone dial such as gold dial with a darker strap, will make the beauty of the dial more prominent. Material The second important factor is the material of the strap. As mentioned earlier, rubber straps by Panerai are made with natural materials, which makes them highly comfortable. However, rubber straps are not for everyone. The material and the finish of the strap should be in accordance with your style statement. If you want a watch with a sporty look but also something for everyday wear, then rubber strap might do. But for something more luxurious, professional and classy, Panerai straps in leather work the best! Leather has a touch of elegance, luxury, and sophistication to it. It is also very comfortable to wear. High quality leather watch straps such as the ones sold by Panerai are very comfortable, breathable materials that fit perfectly on your wrist. They are buckle-on and are very quick to wear and take off. Also, Panerai leather straps have adjustable sizes, so that makes them appropriate for everyone! Special Straps for Specific Collections The Luminor Due Panerai straps are specifically made for their Luminor Due watch collection. With thinner padding, the straps ensure comfort. They are available in various tones along with various patterns/textures too. You have a variety of alligator straps, tone-on-tone straps, and a variety in sizes too. So, other than the color and the pattern of the strap, you should also consider which size of strap to choose. This will depend on the case size of your watch. Panerai Straps Conclusion To sum it up, if you are planning to refresh your style statement by buying a new Panerai watch strap, then there are some factors you should consider. These include the size, the color, the material, and the texture of the straps. These factors will ensure that your strap is compatible with your watch and will look perfect on your wrist.

This is to ensure that the rubber seals are intact. During the checkup, get the watch thoroughly checked by asking for pressure tests and bench tests. The beauty of these watches is that the rubber seals in it are of high quality and hence they only require a checkup once in a year. High quality Regardless of what the product is, one thing that no one should compromise upon is the quality. The Tag Heuer Aquaracer watches are hence made with the highest quality materials.

  11. Review of the Oris Divers Sixty-Five

    Review of the Oris Divers Sixty-Five

    Oris is no stranger to manufacturing killer and limited edition watches. Oris further went into its archives and brought back a dive watch from half a decade ago; the Oris Divers Sixty-Five. This watch is a great example of a company recreating their heritage piece in the perfect way. This timepiece looks very similar to the original design but has a larger, more modern-sized casing created from stainless steel. It also has a unidirectional bezel that today’s watches own, an automatic and modern mechanical movement, a sapphire crystal and a rubber strap. By contrast, the original and old model is much smaller and was sold in a chromium-plated brass casing. It also has a Plexiglas crystal; this crystal lacks anti-glare treatment. The older version of Oris Divers Watch even had a versatile black colored plastic strap and a bi-directional rotational bezel. The Casing of the Oris Divers Sixty Five This watch is crafted using stainless steel and measures forty millimeters in diameter with a 12.99mm thickness. The length of this watch is around 47.5mm, and its lugs provide you with a 20 mm wide strap. The size of this watch is comparable to a classic vintage Submariner, and this is an excellent thing. Once strapped on the wrist, the watch works incredibly well. It has an ergonomic design, and the crown does not dig in your writs. Overall, this stylish timepiece has a perfect design. The weight of Oris is at 78.9 grams and is similar to the weight of classic vintage watches instead of a modern and contemporary watch; this means that wearing Oris is exceptionally comfortable even over long time periods. Lugs The area present in-between the lugs and the sides of the watch’s casing are fully polished. The screw-in case back that comes with the original Oris emblem engraving, the crown and the lower part of the lugs are polished fully and made brand new. Since this watch is a diver’s watch, the crown on this timepiece is screw-down. Even though it is slightly firm, it is very easy to operate and comes with an “ORIS” relief engraving. On top of the stainless steel casing is a unidirectional bezel with 0-60 minutes present on top. It also has a luminous dot present inside of the triangle in place of “0.” The bezel on Oris dive watch is black steel and has a black colored aluminum insert. Moreover, the domed shape sapphire crystal along with an anti-glare coating present in the interior of the dial gives the watch with a vintage touch. The Dial of Oris Divers Sixty-Five The watch has a glossy and curved black dial made with luminous printed indices. It has Arabic numerals in places of 12, 3, 6 and 9 o’ clock. Also, the printed inner minute track is very similar to those present on the 1965 original model on which this timepiece is based on. The nickel hands for seconds, hours and minutes, all come with a luminous filling that matches the dial. The small date aperture is practically hidden over the 6 o’clock numeral and comes with white numbering on a black background. This allows it to blend into the minute track easily and due to the trend with no-date watches, this is a great compromise. The original vintage model contains the date at the 3 o’ clock position, and the adjacent numerals were reduced in size, and this threw off the symmetry of the dial. Thankfully, the modern version went with form over function and what looked best on the watch. Oris Divers Sixty-Five Movement Powering this classic vintage yet contemporary watch is the Oris Caliber 733. This is based entirely on Sellita SW200 and comes with a date function. This movement is entirely automatic and is the complete copy of the ETA 2824-2. The movement also beats at 4 Hz and has a power reserve of thirty-eight hours and contains 26 jewels. The functions of this watch include minutes, hours, date, and central seconds. You can also manually wind the watch when you want, and this timepiece has a stop-seconds function as well. It might had been better if the movement was at a much higher level. Such as the Caliber SW-200 that comes with a chronometer-level adjustment, allowing it to be more precise. Furthermore, with an affordable yet reliable watch movement present inside, Oris was able to keep this watch at a less high price. Final Verdict You should know that this is not a professional grade diver watch. However, this is an ISO 6425 certified diver’s watch that allows it to be water-resistant at a minimum of 300 feet. But apart from this, Oris Divers Sixty-Five is an excellent vintage-inspired watch. While the Oris Divers Sixty-Five looks slightly similar to its ancestors, it contains modern upgrades and accouterments that make it stand out.
