That is a beautiful watch, and one designer that I do not have in my collection. In terms of bezel preference...inner bezel for real diving because of less damage to the ring...but...remember you are working with diving gloves on to operate the controls of the watch. In the real world, sometimes an outer bezel is better underwater...

Junghans started as a clock company over 100 years ago, and I have the pleasure of owning some of their wall clocks and mantle clocks. The craftsmanship is excellent, the wood is beautiful, and the chimes are more like church bells.

I also have a few of their antique watches which are beautiful with German or Swiss movements.

The piece being reviewed is a knockout, I'm pleased you reviewed it.

@nateb123 Agreed...watches are mini works of wonderment, engineering prowess and sexiness. Watch nuts like the engineering and the precision...dare I say well executed toys ? It makes us happy, gives us that joy-joy feeling, and makes our lives just a bit less mundane...

You know I love my Casio's, buy have been recently using my Seiko's as well. Pro-Trek and the Orange Monster. The Casio's being flat black and non-showy, the monster in orange, well, it is a bit bright. I like my Luminox too. I still use my Citizen Aqua Master to dive with, and that baby is 15 years old and still specs out with my Edge Diving Computer. Plus, I don't own a green watch :)

@Kris C  I would say no Kris...where it however you want , however you want. I think this article speaks to the person who has nearly no interest in the watch itself but simply the name brand and it being expensive. I have a 16 place watch winder, and countless watches, but it's all about the snooty attitude that drives me crazy. Most of these folks have no idea what makes their watch such a mechanical wonder, and they have no interest in finding out. It's keeping up with the Jones's , that's the kind of behavior that drives me bananas...Otherwise...Rock out with your co*k out...  :)

I buy watches to please myself, not to impress anyone else. My grandfather had a shop on Jewelers Row on Samson St. in Philly. Caught the bug from him. He owned one watch, a solid gold Croton Nevada Gretchen which he wore everyday, it became my father's and now it's mine. I have many different watches, but I just can't get into the attitude thing. Same with my cars, same with my motorcycles, and same with my stereo gear. I have no time for self indulgent blowhards, just don't have the patience for them in all walks of life. That's the country boy in me, I'm too mellow and laid back for that kind of nonsense...

I love these watches, and the accuracy redundancy has me smiling big time. But A.A. that's between 1K AND 2k of coolness. Am I losing touch with what is considered affordable these days. The Skyhawk AT Blue Angel Titanium seems like the bargain of the year. I have to get with the times...

I met Flav a couple of times when his career was on fire, and he was and is a superstar. Also married to Brigettte Nielson. I spoke to hime for about 15 minutes, we had a record and stereo store at the time, he was promoting his band. The most unassuming gentle guy you could imagine. The Invicta is perfect for him, the largeness fits him. He won't buy into the mega-dollar watch nonsense, it's just not him...I wouldn't buy a 100,000 watch either, I'd prefer driving mine, no grass, just that funky little prancing horse on the hood...

Rolex should wake up and smell the "updating and buyers demographic changing" coffee. Rolex is an amazingly great timepiece. Is it getting old and tired looking? I think so. Are people looking elsewhere for alternatives? All you need to do is look around at what's on peoples wrist to answer that question. It's still an in house design movement and watch case, and a relative "bargain" in the in the $5000.00 price range, especially on the used market. 

 

The column however addressed design and putting a more modern face on a classic design. It's time Rolex begin offering more than just face color change outs and diamond options and check their buying demographic. It's beginning to age. With that, you need to address the younger audience of CEO's. 

 

Without giving the people at Rolex a heart attack, can we see some updated design choices. A GMT center ring isn't what I had in mind. 

 

Don't be caught nappin' boys...

Seagull movements are sweet. In many cases, they are clones of Unitas pieces of days gone by. They are super smooth, well laid out, and nice to look at. They also serve as a powerful source for part manufacturers to many extremely expensive watches that we all know and love, and one day aspire to own. Do some research, you'd be pleased. Although I can't get anyone to confirm this, but I own 3 Stuhrling World Voyagers . These pieces are built like fine precision instruments, and the movements are marketed under "Lexus" branding. No relation to the car. (Stuhrling haters  need not apply until you own one yourself, not what you might of heard. ) I'm speaking directly to the auto-winders and the fully manual winders. Check them out...
