Swatch Originals Snowcovered Swiss Quartz GK733 Unisex Watch

Swatch Originals Snowcovered Swiss Quartz GK733 Unisex WatchConsider the Swatch Originals Snowcovered Swiss Quartz GK733 Unisex Watch as the first step towards spending wisely for fashion. It’s for those times when you like to save your disposable income, which will make affording a real high-end watch easier in the future.

Quality often suffers in those pursuits but this time Swatch – the most light-hearted brand from the Swatch Group – ensures that you don’t. Rather, expect some amount of playfulness that gels perfectly with the holiday flow. There’s no confused feeling about it; just smile and go with it.

That’s the beauty of a Swatch Original that turned the world upside down right from the start. Swatch has put its heart and soul into bringing out the creativity in simplicity; this time, minus the eye-popping colours. The amazing materials and an arresting design is; however, at par with the rest of the collection.

The Swatch Originals Snowcovered Swiss Quartz GK733 Unisex Watch is a stark contrast to the peppy, flashy and naughty designs that have kind of become synonymous to Swatch. So this time, they were to prove it’s possible to be popular with simplicity and carry beauty, harmony and precision without compromising on any of them.

At most, you can call it the festive watch with a day and date window and embossed numerals blending with the dial. Time is not that important amidst a festive mood but it also must not be the ‘holiday unknown’. You notice the time when you really want to, for the colours of holiday fun are far more spectacular to watch.

Despite being labelled as a Unisex timepiece, it is more fun for the ladies to wear it albeit men can also sport it when they dress full in white. It is a nice alternative to the more expensive horological toys during the times when you really don’t want to worry about what’s on your wrist; more so, for there’s nothing to be damaged in the watch, including the movement. Again, it is simplicity the Snowcovered owes to!

It’s the frosted look of the winters that’s going to cool you down during the hot months.

The Snowcovered from Swatch captures the love of frost on a watch! The all white face has frosted straps to match and stands out as a fashion piece with its pristine white colour scheme.

The Swatch Something New GK733 Unisex Watch has been seen on the hands of Rosamund Pike in the movie What We Did on Our Holiday. This funny, dark comedy provided the perfect background for the Snowcovered to exhibit; simple but beautiful. As a part of the Originals, it too features a transparent case that’s just 34mm wide and 39 mm long. Sleek and stylish, its white band helps to bring the look together and catch the eyes.

Tag Heuer Aquaracer Chronograph Grande Date CAN1011.BA0821 Mens Watch

 

Tag Heuer Mens WatchThe Tag Heuer Aquaracer is a gorgeous timepiece designed specifically for the deep seas. It is one of the most renowned watches used for undersea diving and by the most dedicated professionals/ Created for professional divers with ideas coming from professional divers, the Aquaracer chronograph has undergone many rigorous tests so far that are considered the ultimate in terms of both water resistance and accuracy.

Crafted to operate flawlessly till 900 feet under the sea, the name Aquaracer itself speaks about its inspirations. It is dedicated to the sport of sailing; it is an arena where requirements, even shorter by a grain, can spell disasters. The Aquaracer, with its unrivalled, sportive distinction, is an affirmative nod to the turbid oceans. Above the dial is a domed, scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, which brings more clarity to the things underneath, offering max legibility in murky, dark waters. So you can guess how the visibility will be outside the water.

Extra functionality comes from the date display and the chronograph; its staggering, 300m of a water resistance making it resistant to every force of nature. The screw-in caseback bears a special diver decoration and the helium valve (at 10’o clock) comes with an extra protective seal. Its inner workings are as impressive as its exteriors. Yes, despite it being quartz.

The watch has several unique features which accommodate deep sea divers and should be noted:

• A three-dial chronograph.

• An unidirectional turning bezel.

• A screw-in crown with double gaskets.

Some might ask what a chronograph is doing in a diving watch. Well, it not only suffices in tracking the time you are under water (and therefore, tells you about the amount of oxygen you have left) but also helps to measure anything where accuracy is paramount! Here, you get the accuracy of 1/10th of a second. Such accuracy and fine division of time has logical relevance for any kind of fun you want to experience with ultimate safety; here, you can take it up to 12 hours at a stretch.

The unidirectionally turning bezel is another safety feature that works as a countdown timer that charts exactly how long you have been engaged in a specific task without engaging the chronograph. Or, to say differently, it helps you to preset the amount of time you want to spend at a job and track the lapse of time. It turns only to the right, so there’s no chance of knocking it with a surface and let the reading to haywire. The six large studs surrounding the bezel ensures you do not lose grip while turning it under wet conditions or when you are wearing thick gloves. The same applies to the oversized, screw-in crown. And the clasp – well, with TAG, you really don’t need to explain things.

All in all, the incredibly accurate, immaculately designed Tag Heuer Aquaracer 300M is suitable to people from all walks of life, not just divers.

 

Hamilton Automatic Khaki Field H70515137 Mens Watch

Hamilton Automatic Mens WatchHamilton’s American roots have now changed into Swiss, thus strengthening further its century long experiences and expertises in the horology domain. From precision pocket watches for the railroads, they are now the manufacturers of highly stylish and rugged wrist wear watch aficionados often swear by. Being currently under the Swatch umbrella, Hamilton continues to be one among the leading Swiss watch brands within an affordable price range. Most Hamilton watches use the ETA movement, which is a Swatch product itself. That’s how the prices stay low despite the very high qualities.

The Hamilton Automatic Khaki Field watch comes with a piece of history attached to it. Back in the WWII era, Hamilton was appointed as the official supplier of watches to the US army. This is when Hamilton designed a new series of military watches and named them Khaki-s. There were one million units of the Hamilton Khaki produced that time. The new Hamilton Automatic Khaki Field pays respect to those veterans.

Meant for the battlegrounds, it’s obvious that the Hamilton Automatic Khaki Field will be rugged and edgy. Therefore, it is appropriate for the outdoors (that goes without saying) though a lot of people go for it due to its simple looks that make for a perfect piece for everyday use. Whether you work in the lab or with heavy machineries or is simply bound to a desk job, the Hamilton Automatic Khaki Field is going to fit every environment you belong to.

A bold dial with highly visible indices, it’s a clear indication of the Hamilton Automatic Jazzmaster watch’s active and adventurous side. It belongs to Hamilton’s own military watch series, sporting a historical military design. It’s the same as it was in the ‘40s except for its case size, which is 42 mm; 4mm larger this time. It makes the watch finely balance between elegant and rugged without crossing the simplistic borders. Incredibly captivating, it will make you stare at it for hours together.

At its heart is an automatic ETA 2824-2 – a true workhorse of a movement, in its standard (base) form with 25 Jewels and running at 28,800 BPH. The movement offers a date function, a corrector and a hacking mechanism. The seconds-hand sweeps smoother than many others within this price range and has a tremendous shock protection, rendering the watch a functional piece and not a military-styled watch as many brands came up with the type later on. Moreover, it comes very close to chronometer specifications after breaking-in; till then, expect anything between +12 to -30 seconds variations a day.

We’ll end with the C1 Superluminova so that those obsessed with the lume of a watch do not miss out on this absolute piece of beauty. Let’s just say it provides an awesome look at night, right from the time of initiation through hours long. And the red tipped arrow at the end adds a pop of colour to make the subtle theme come alive every now and then!

Orient Automatic 21 Jewels World Time Power Reserve FA06001B Mens Watch

Orient Automatic 21 Jewels World Time Power Reserve FA06001B Mens WatchOrient signed to sponsor the SUBARU TECNICAL INTERNATIONAL INC. (STI) in 2009 to test the functionality and durability of their watches as they share the pressure of the racetracks with their respective wearer. It was to prove that Japanese Engines are always the best. It’s the same degree of seriousness that goes into the Orient Automatic 21 Jewels World Time Power Reserve FA06001B Mens Watch.

The first thing we can say about the Orient Automatic 21 Jewels World Time Power Reserve FA06001B Mens Watch is it has something very different from other world time watches. This brings the watch its WOW factor and puts it head and shoulders above competitions, even with some of the Swiss!

The highlight of the watch is its dial. Apart from the exuding class and a fine craftsmanship, emphasis goes into its two-layer main dial. There are two chapter rings, with the world time (inner) and names of the cities (outer) written on them. Very clearly printed and therefore, very legible, the external ring rotates as the 4’oclock crown is turned.

Setting the world time needs aligning your current city to the current time on the 24 hour chapter ring. This aligns the rest of the cities (all in different time zones) to their respective current time; however, this is not a digital watch so daylight savings time does not apply.

Inside, there ticks an Orient M-Force Automatic 46K40 movement, which doesn’t take manual winding and doesn’t hack. But, with the power reserve meter, manual winding is not a big factor since you always know when to shake it up a bit. But then again, with its fabulous wrist presence, you shall give it a fair amount of wrist time, which takes care of the winding part. Four to 6 hours of wearing winds it up fully.

As for the hacking part, it is important for COSC certified watches or those syncing to atomic signals; besides, this one is much more accurate (+ 7 seconds a day) than normal mechanical watches and doesn’t require resetting every now and then. Among the extra, there’s a display back that allows seeing the movement inside. The movement is a decorated one with 21 jewels; there are Geneva-styled waves and swirls machined on it. Sapphire crystals on both sides (on the dial and on the caseback) with ARC (anti-reflective coating) make it even more attractive!

Overall, the Orient Automatic Fashionable World Time Power Reserve FA06001B Mens Watch is a very satisfying watch that never fails to perform its duty. It is of a great value and compares very well with entry-level Swiss made watches, at a price that’s far lower. Agreed even by fans of Swiss timepieces, the Orient Star Standard Date FA06001B Mens Watch conveys a quality that’s simply great and capable of changing the perceptions of a lot of people to whom Swiss is synonymous to watches.

Suunto X-Lander Black Digital SS012197310 Watch

Suunto X-Lander Black Digital SS012197310 WatchActive outdoorsmen swear by the ABC watches and it’s Suunto who kind of re-invented the type. The Altimeter, Barometer and Compass combination is a versatile one aiding anything from golf to rock climbing; from sailing and surfing to skiing. But, it has to be hard enough to stand the ordeals; else a tactical package is of no use. The Suunto X-Lander beats others on this ground. Lightweight and tough as a nail, the X-Lander serves you as much in the backcountry as within your luxurious yacht or when you are high above on the mountain trail. It’s not for nothing the geek circles call it the Mil-X (Mil is short for military) and this is the reason behind it. The design has proven itself in military operations and is less whiz-bang compared to many other of its ABC brethren, despite upgrades like the mineral glass (in place of acrylic) and carbon-fiber reinforced aluminum case instead of resin or stainless steel. All that makes for a package that’s both tougher and lighter.

Stinger buttons are another ground on which the X-Lander scores magnificently; these used to come formerly in the Suunto dive computers. These push buttons can be operated underwater, which is a stark contrast to the rest that have a strict restriction on underwater operability. Do it and they are gone! The Suunto X-Lander is prepared for such tough situations as well.

Apart from time,date and the ABC functions, the Suunto Core Light Green keeps track of a second time zone; measures and splits time with its stopwatch function, allows for countdown, programs two separate daily alarms and also determines a wearer’s position relative to the sea level. Remarkably accurate on hills if you know the reference altitude; that way, you can know for sure if it’s just a rise or fall in altitude or an approaching storm. It leaves nothing to guesswork.

The Suunto Vector Watches doesn’t allow you to make compromises, for if there’s one thing real professionals hate, it is making compromises. However, it’s not just professionals who are only entitled to go for the X-Lander, anyone with an eye and a want for a multi-functional sports watch is going to find this tight, little and tough package an elegant one. An abundance of features does not complicate things; on the contrary, they are extremely user-friendly with easy operating logic behind. The large display allows for big numerals, which is a privilege when you are under stressful conditions and an electro-luminescent backlight makes it fully usable even when its pitch dark. Exclusive looks within a rock-solid foundation, that’s the best way to describe the Suunto Core Watches, its non-allergenic materials (both for the case and the strap) making prolonged usage absolutely a breeze.
