Omega De Ville Prestige Co-Axial Chronometer 424.20.37.20.02.002 Mens Watch : Understated, Elegant, Classic

Omega De Ville Prestige Co-Axial Chronometer 424.20.37.20.02.002 Mens WatchWhat makes it great?

Purely a timeless classic, the Omega De Ville Prestige Co-Axial Chronometer 424.20.37.20.02.002 Mens Watch is a timepiece that makes for a treasured item in the formal and ethnic wardrobes.

In its full details and charm:

A great dial and case styling and a reasonable price makes the Omega De Ville Prestige Co-Axial Chronometer 424.20.37.20.02.002 Mens Watch a substantial watch. But those are not what make it so special; it is the Co-Axial escapement (invented by Englishman Dr. George Daniels) that stays responsible. The large and loyal following it gathered over the years is not just because of its elegant design; it is also for the co-axial movement that’s chronometer certified. Pure luxury in a timeless design, it’s the style of the Omega De Ville Prestige Co-Axial Chronometer 424.20.37.20.02.002 Mens Watch that speaks volumes.

The Omega De Ville Prestige Co-Axial Chronometer 424.20.37.20.02.002 Mens Watch features a pristine white dial with gold-accented Roman numeral hour markers. The dial has a date window at 3 o’clock and is covered with a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, which is mounted on an 18K yellow gold bezel. Measuring a very decent 36.8 mm across and fitted with a two-tone steel and yellow gold accented bracelet, at its heart it nests a Co-Axial calibre 2500.

The Omega De Ville Prestige Co-Axial Chronometer 424.20.37.20.02.002 Mens Watch looks way different than other models in the current De Ville Prestige line up, resembling more the famous Omega Constellation watches of the 1950’s, evident from the pie-pan dial, the rather large markers and the shape of the lugs. It is considerably hefty compared to its size, which adds all the more to its substantiality. It is also somewhat thicker than the Constellations of yesteryears and that’s what makes the initial impressions truly stunning.

The Omega De Ville Prestige Co-Axial Chronometer 424.20.37.20.02.002 Mens Watch is high-polish all over, including the dial and its elements; the case, the crown and the bracelet and its links. The uniform shine brings a great balance to its appearance.

The Co-Axial calibre 2500 the watch runs upon is based on the Omega Cal 1120, which is again a modified and decorated version of the ETA 2892-A2. It is the addition of the co-axial escapement that makes it almost an entirely new calibre. The chief difference is that the co-axial escapement bears two escape wheels that are mounted together and help in releasing the torque from the main spring. The two wheels working in conjunction has added jewels to reduce friction, (instead of two jewels sliding along the teeth of a single wheel, it has three jewels that just catch the edge of the teeth on two wheels) resulting in a longer life and extended service intervals. All that means:

When you buy the Omega De Ville Prestige Co-Axial Chronometer 424.20.37.20.02.002 Mens Watch, you are buying complete peace of mind that will stay intact over the next couple of decades, to say the least.

Tissot Automatic T97.1.483.31 T-Classic Ballade III Mens Watch : Classy Confidence With A Modern Touch

Tissot Automatic T97.1.483.31 T-Classic Ballade III Mens WatchCutting it short:

The Tissot Automatic T97.1.483.31 T-Classic Ballade III Mens Watch has one of those designs that proved to be hot favourites over time and again. From the interwoven waves lining the dial to the elongated, skeletal hands and beyond, everything about the Tissot Automatic T97.1.483.31 T-Classic Ballade III Mens Watch is confidently modern. Moreover, it is of a size that can suits both the genders.

Going all the way:

Despite its labelling as a men’s watch, the Tissot T-Classic Ballade III T97.1.483.31 can be donned both by men and women and its style helps both the genders to express their true personality – for a man, it proves to be stylishly masculine and for women, it brings a no-nonsense feminine feel high on charm. For both, it heightens the sense of elegance, no matter what outfit is in question.

The Tissot T-Classic Tradition T97.1.483.31 T-Classic Ballade III Mens Watch has an impressive appearance; thanks to its mid-large sized case and a pristine white, classy dial. There’s a scratch resistant sapphire crystal covering the dial, which is a combination of classic and timeless design elements. The elongated skeletal hands keeps things undeniably charming and their extended points help to read every marking precisely. That aside, they don’t interfere with reading the date as many watches do with broad hands.

Inside, there sits one workhorse of the ETA mechanical line movements - the ETA 2824-2 that has undergone continuous refinements to come up to its 28,800 vph version. It is a self-winding movement in its standard format with twenty-five jewels and an ETAchron regulator mechanism. As for the barrel spring, pallet stones, balance wheel, shock protection and hairspring, they are the same as in the chronometer version, which is actually a more fine-tuned and regulated version of the same. The standard ETA 2824-2 is accurate to +12 seconds a day; in worst cases, it might go up to +30 seconds. It is well-built, accurate and much easier to maintain. Based on the Eterna 1427 from 1961, it is also durable and relatively inexpensive while maintaining the core functionalities of the basic three-handed watches with a date function and a pretty big power reserve, stretching to almost two days on a fully wound mainspring.

The movement of the Tissot T-Sport T97.1.483.31 T-Classic Ballade III Mens Watch can invariably be guaranteed to last long for its more generously proportioned wheels, a balance wheel with a larger diameter and a ball bearing race support with smaller diameter and the crown and the ratchet wheel fitting on top of the barrel bridge. Its other prominent features are the two reversing wheels that form the most important parts of the automatic winding system and an automatic unit that fits on top of the movement.

Omega De Ville Prestige Co-Axial Chronometer Automatic Power Reserve 424.13.40.21.03.001 Men's Watch : Captivating, Inspired Engineering

Omega De Ville Prestige Co-Axial Chronometer Automatic Power Reserve 424.13.40.21.03.001 Men's WatchDon’t take the Omega De Ville Prestige Co-Axial Chronometer Automatic Power Reserve 424.13.40.21.03.001 Men's Watch as a straightaway tribute to the historical De Ville lineage. Rather, treat it as a representation of the evolution of the De Ville line; a contemporary classic in a timeless design with a well-calculated vintage feel.

The Omega De Ville Prestige Co-Axial Chronometer Automatic Power Reserve 424.13.40.21.03.001 Men's Watch is one of the smallest of the watches Omega makes for men. Just a couple of millimetres larger than the true vintage size, it is calculative in its understated appearance and sleek in its build.

The Omega De Ville Prestige Co-Axial Chronometer Automatic Power Reserve 424.13.40.21.03.001 Men's Watch has a bit of the vintage Seamaster in it; especially the hands, which brings to mind the factor that made the De Ville decades ago.

The evolved De Ville is a seamless blend between luxury and performance. The brand’s reputation for redefining mechanical watch making holds true here as well; the Omega De Ville Prestige Co-Axial Chronometer Automatic Power Reserve 424.13.40.21.03.001 Men's Watch commands attention without delay with its confident mix of style and innovation. It qualifies as a functional timepiece that serves both as an everyday staple and an occasional wear. It is exquisite at its own merits and equipped to the brim to stand the test of time.

The dial is an even combination of plain markers and Roman numeral hour indexes; the latter occupying the three-hour gaps. Adjacent to the Roman numeral hour markers are the date window, power reserve indicator and the small seconds counter, which keep the dial from turning bland and boring. From the top, the dial is protected by a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal.

But everything aside, it’s the Omega De Ville Prestige Co-Axial Chronometer calibre 2627 movement that brings the real thrill into the watch! It complements the OMEGA 2500 and is a self-winding, COSC-certified chronometer grade movement with a circular-grained finish, polished and bevelled bridges, rhodium-plated surfaces and Geneva wave decor with gilt engravings i.e. Fausses cotes embellishment. There are 29 jewels inside; a shock absorbing mechanism and a co-axial escapement that George Daniels designed.

Going further into technicality, you’ll come across a mono-metallic balance wheel with a self-compensating, flat balance-spring. It’s vastly different from the principles of the Swiss lever escapement system, with 3 jewels on the pallet fork. The balance wheel has one. Together, they receive radial impulses from the coaxial wheel before delivering to the pallet fork and performing the locking action. They receive almost the entire energy with very less sliding whereas the opposite impulse is received directly by the jewel attached to the balance.

The biggest advantage is definitely that the co-axial escapement doesn’t require any lubrication. This is because there’s no sliding action occurring inside, which results in longer service intervals.

With a power reserve of 44 hours and the double-gasket crown, you are sure to wear the Omega Seamaster Co-Axial Chronometer Automatic Power Reserve 424.13.40.21.03.001 Men's Watch with complete peace of mind.

Tissot T-Race Automatic Chronograph T011.414.16.032.00 T0114141603200 Men's Watch : Speedy Notes

Tissot T-Sport PRC 200 Automatic T055.427.16.017.00 WatchThose who need speed as a way of their life, the Tissot T-Race Automatic Chronograph T011.414.16.032.00 T0114141603200 Men's Watch shall throw enough excitement towards them to make their priority stay grounded. It’s not that you need to be on the tracks for it necessarily, but outside as well. Lovers of speed sports rejoice! The Tissot T-Race Automatic Chronograph T011.414.16.032.00 T0114141603200 Men's Watch is an offering from the Swiss giant that will bring you inspirations by tons!

The influences of speed sports show profusely through the Tissot T-Race Automatic Chronograph T011.414.16.032.00 T0114141603200 Men's Watch; from its short headlamp visor inspired magnifying date window to the chronograph sub-dials resembling speed-gauges in automobiles. Apart from those, the tyre-tread of motorcycle front tyres add sumptuously to this stunning package. Overall, the Tissot T-Race Automatic Chronograph T011.414.16.032.00 T0114141603200 Men's Watch strengthens the bond between the racing sports and you further.

More so, for Tissot is into a partnership with the MotoGP event for almost two decades and a half! The long association helped the brand to pick from the best of the details that are so necessary for the high-speed activities. As a symbol of that honour bestowed through this tie-up, Tissot came up with the limited edition T-Race Automatic Chronograph T011.414.16.032.00 T0114141603200 Men's Watch.

That itself makes the Tissot T-Race Automatic Chronograph T011.414.16.032.00 T0114141603200 Men's Watch an item drooled upon by collectors; to the connoisseurs of technology, it brings further marvels like its fifteen-jewel, 3Hz, ETA Calibre C01.211 movement and its 46 hours of power reserve. It is a custom designed movement by ETA, to be used only for the Tissot T-Race Automatic Chronograph T011.414.16.032.00 T0114141603200 Men's Watch.

Apart from the inspirations mentioned before, the Tissot T-Race Automatic Chronograph T011.414.16.032.00 T0114141603200 Men's Watch also exhibits a build quality that’s equivalent to that of the automobiles and superbikes used in the races. Add to that the ridged crown and pushers; they maintain the visual parity all right, but additionally, they ensure firm grip even with the gloved hands. More racing aesthetics can be seen through the screws, resembling cam-covers found on the engine heads.

The Tissot T-Race Automatic Chronograph T011.414.16.032.00 T0114141603200 Men's Watch despite being a radically new T-Race design also flaunts some of the elements of a classic chronograph. The tachymeter scale, for example; laid along the flange of the dial, it showcases the biggest attribute of its racing spirit. It helps to find out a moving vehicle’s mean speed over known distances when used in conjunction with the large, seconds-counting hand of the chronograph. The other two sub dials total the minutes and the hours but the sub-dial at 9 is for counting the regular seconds. It’s an important feature alright, but aesthetically, it makes the face of the Tissot Automatic Chronograph T011.414.16.032.00 T0114141603200 Men's Watch appear fuller.

The anti-reflective sapphire crystal is a vital addition since it enhances the visibility of the watch dial and its different components by many times than ordinary mineral glasses; besides, sapphire is more immune to sudden shocks, which ensures your Tissot Carson Chronograph Watch is not going to give away any soon.

Undeniably, the Stuhrling Original Aquadiver Manta Ray is a piece that makes for a serious diver style without the geek kinda look.

An art in black IP solid stainless steel, the Stuhrling Original Aquadiver Manta Ray Swiss Quartz 718.04 Mens Watch is a great dive watch that’s exceptionally versatile and wearable.

It kind of gets you into a committed relationship; thanks to the great silicone rubber strap gripping that way.

The Stuhrling Original Ascot Prime Swiss Quartz 718.04 Mens Watch is not the usual sporty iteration. It has more of a casual watch feel despite the presence of important sportive features like the unidirectional ratcheting bezel and prominently embossed Arabic numerals on it. The ridged, charcoal-black, hydraulically stamped dial has a central circle containing the brand-name and keeps the monochrome monotony from setting in, while at the same time, the uniform colour scheme makes the luminous baton markers all the more visible, taking readability factor up by several notches.

Below that gorgeous dial, ticks the Ronda 515 quartz movement; genuinely Swiss and made in Switzerland. The Ronda 515 movement contains 1 jewel, which lines the opening of the shaft-insert and is harder than metal components most of the ordinary quartz movements use. This increases the longevity of the movement and if you decide to pull out the stem to the 3rd position, you will cut down power consumption by 70% flat. While it is certainly not the best Swiss Made movement out there, it is all about the highest quality that you can get at this price point.

It might even get you into building a basic, essential watch collection, for the Stuhrling Original Aquadiver Manta Ray Swiss Quartz 718.04 Mens Watch is way ahead than the tricky, expensive models that promise you rose gardens but land you up among thorns.

Stuhrling Original Antilles Automatic Skeleton 773.01 Mens WatchYou’ll like the Stuhrling Original Antilles Automatic Skeleton 773.01 Mens Watch if elegant simplicity is your style and for which, you are not ready to sacrifice the masculine looks. Combined, they bring forward the Antiless’ classic style.

When something comes out from the house of Stuhrling, it is understood that quality and dependability is integral to its style. For today’s executive, all three are essential factors to represent success; to impress all in the boardroom.

The Stuhrling Original Antilles Automatic Skeleton 773.01 Mens Watch, also known as the Regatta Antilles, is a sturdy and rugged Stuhrling Original timepiece. Crafted entirely from stainless steel, it boasts of a partially skeleton dial exhibiting an exquisite automatic movement inside. The Regatta Antilles is a true example of an elite, executive timepiece in an eye-catching silver and grey (case and dial respectively) combination that never runs of admiring glances. Crafted of 316L stainless steel, the case, bezel and the bracelet have a subtle gleam that doesn’t die even under dim lights.

The Stuhrling Original Antilles Automatic Skeleton 773.01 Mens Watch brings an added touch of elegance and strength that is in accord both with formals and semi-casuals. It is a timepiece that dazzles with almost every outfit and a must if you want to enhance your corporate sense of style.

The dial of the Stuhrling Original Antilles Automatic Skeleton 773.01 Mens Watch is cut in a circle at the middle, exhibiting the classic three-hands, 20-jewel automatic calibre ST-90050 based on the calibre Hangzhou 2189. Around the periphery of the cut-out are the lume-filled rectangular index- markers with pointed ends.

There’s another side to the Stuhrling Original Aviator Automatic Skeleton 773.01 Mens Watch too and the unidirectional ratcheting bezel tells about that. The Regatta Antilles also doubles up as a watch suitable for recreational diving, as long as you do not more than 300 feet under water. It comes under the category of Aqua Divers and that’s for a reason. The bezel acts as a timer and lets you know how much time you have left for a particular event that you have set it for. With it, you can time everything from the parking meter to the simmering cauldron, not just your diving time.

The caseback is a transparent one, covered with Stuhrling’s own Krysterna crystal, radically different from the mineral and the sapphire. It is the same material that creates the high-end eyeglasses. Krysterna is unique because it has more strength over a spread surface area than both mineral and sapphire and hence, less prone to shatters and breakages. It is the same Krysterna that covers the dial, ensuring a long life to your watch.

That much said, the Stuhrling Original Cuvette Automatic Skeleton 773.01 Mens Watch is both your occasional wear and the go-to watch, for seldom does the quality of toughness gels so intricately with the delicate style signatures.

The timepiece lives up to the very claim; its wide and black genuine leather strap and a 45mm stainless steel case together with an aviation-inspired black dial creates a look so sharp you can’t just miss; even from a mile away!

It’s been quite some time that Invicta started combining traditional Swiss craftsmanship with vintage designs, as a result of which, the cutting-edge Invicta I-Force Chronograph Quartz 300M 22273 Mens Watch was born. A bold and big dial grants it an easy access to anywhere between formal and high-fashion categories while the rest of its meticulous construction in the finest of materials makes it fit to be worn at places where you just can’t afford to appear cheaply dressed.

There’s no tactical gimmickry about its multi-faceted vision quest; just plain and simple regular time-keeping with a time-splitting function. The calibre 6371B is an advanced chronograph movement, allowing the three sub-dials to display the regular progression of seconds along with a 30-minute counter and 1/10th splitting of chronograph seconds. While we don’t call this format revolutionary, but Invicta definitely deserves a pat on the back for keeping these features low on price, without compromising on quality. It brought to us all something that was once in the reach of the privileged.

The dial is made of mother of pearl and adds a luxurious touch to the overall appearance of the Invicta I-Force Chronograph Quartz 300M 22273 Mens Watch’ tilt it to different angles and you shall be stunned to see the interplay of light upon it.

Covering the dial of the Invicta Russian Diver Chronograph Quartz 300M 22273 Mens Watch is a Flame-Fusion crystal, created the same way as the rubies are made today for automatic movements. It is mineral and sapphire crystal fused into a single material that doesn’t allow the two to be separated, so you are gaining twice the strength as you might expect from a mineral crystal or a sapphire.
