    Classic and Classy Breitling Watches

    Founded way back in 1884, the company’s watches are separated into three categories: diving watches (known as SuperOcean), aviation watches (known as Navitimer) and Luxury watches (Breitling for Bentley). Their polished cases and bracelets, as well as their large watch faces that are designed to make readability simple have long characterized Breitling watches. Many of the watches created by Breitling feature an automatic winding mechanism that’s purely mechanical, while other models of Breitling watches feature complications. All of the watches made by the brand are manufactured in Switzerland, despite the company’s German-sounding name. In the early 1940s, the company revolutionized the watch business by adding a circular slide rule to the bezel of their chronograph models – these watches were meant to be used by aircraft pilots. This watch later evolved into the now-famous Navitimer model, and during the 1950s and 1960s, this watch was offered by the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association with the association’s logo on the dial.

    The next innovation in the Breitling world came courtesy of famous astronaut Scott Carpenter, who approached the company in 1961 and suggested that they should incorporate a twenty-four hour dial instead of their usual twelve-hour dial. For Carpenter, such an innovation was a necessity, as he was one of the original astronauts in the Mercury space program and required a watch that worked regardless of whether it was night or day, as space travel eliminated the distinction between the two. Breitling agreed, and produced a special Navitimer model for Carpenter to wear on his 1962 flight to space.

    Many Breitling watches are specialized – just as the Navitimer was originally created for airline pilots and was later tweaked for Carpenter’s flight into space, the Breitling Emergency watch includes a radio transmitter, which was worn by civil aviators. This watch is also used by many in the military, and under normal conditions (flat terrain or calm seas) the signal from the watch can be picked up as far as 90 nautical miles by a search aircraft. The importance of this innovation was discovered in January of 2003, when two British pilots crashed their helicopter in Antartica and were rescued by crews only after they activated their Breitling Emergency watches. The aircraft that rescued the two men was only able to find them after picking up signals from their watches. While this watch is generally used by military men and women and pilots, it’s available for purchase by regular citizens as well, but normal folk who attempt to purchase the watch must sign a letter of agreement stating that they’ll carry the costs accrued from a rescue intervention should they trigger their distress signal on the watch.

    Though many Breitling watches, such as the ones described above, seem overly technological and not suited for the average individual, the truth is, the brand is also known for producing simply beautiful and functional timepieces. Though pricey, the watches produced by Breitling are the kind of watches that withstand the test of time, making them excellent gifts and true family mementos. For example, the Breitling Women’s Colt Oceane Swiss Automatic Diamond Accent Stainless Steel Bracelet Watch is a beautiful, dazzling design that literally sparkles with diamonds. This beautiful watch comes with a matching stainless steel bracelet and boasts a unidirectional rotating bezel that’s studded with diamonds. Diamonds are forever, but this watch will outlast even the hardest of gems. The perfect gift for the love of your life, Breitling watches studded with diamonds are beloved by celebrities across the globe.

    Another great option is the Breitling Women’s Cockpit Swiss Automatic Rose Gold-tone Accent Stainless Steel Bracelet Watch. Another beauty, this one melds superior style with timeless execution, putting silver and gold together with a stainless steel case and back that features a matching two-tone bracelet. This watch boasts a unidirectional rotating bezel that features a white dial that hits all the right marks, with Roman numerals at 12:00, 6:00 and 9:00. At all other hours, the watch boasts rose gold-tone index markers. This watch pairs beautifully with a crisp white suit, but looks just as sophisticated with a rocker tee and jeans. No matter what your wife wears, she’ll look great in this timepiece. The best news? Though you’re dropping a lot of dough on it, it’s the sort of piece she can pass down to your daughter, and then to her granddaughter. Unlike cheaper, more easily replaceable pieces of jewelry, Breitling watches are the types of pieces you keep for a long time – they’re in it for the long haul.

    Armani Watches Ceramic

    The Emporio Armani brand was created by Giorgio Armani as a brand that would operate separately from the main Giorgio Armani brand. The Emporio Armani brand has become much more than just a Giorgio Armani sub brand. In the late 1990’s the Emporio Armani launched a partnership with Fossil group a small American watch manufacturer to create a range of designer watches, which would carry the Emporio Armani brand into the next millenia. This collaboration has made Fossil Group one of the biggest manufactures of designer watches making such brands as DKNY, Diesel, and its own Fossil range of watches and it has also made Emporio Armani one of the biggest names in the designer watch industry with the Armani watches now becoming just as aspirational as the suits or clothing to the consumer¬†marked the launch of Ceramica a range of Armani sports watches and fashion watches that would be made almost entirely of Ceramic material.

However with the price tag almost double that of any Armani watch ever made, it was believed that the range could have been a step to far, and so small amounts of this watch range were created to test the water. The scale of demand for these 6 watches was to astound the watch industry and the Fossil group distributors. Within days the entire collection was sold out and retailers and consumers were crying out for more of this new Ceramica range. Especially the white sports chronograph AR1407 and the black ceramic chronograph AR1400, these 2 watches became the must have watches for Christmas and it was only May.

It has taken almost 3 months for Fossil and Emporio Armani to catch up with the demand, but with Christmas coming the demand has increased again and once more Fossil have had to warn their retailers that it will be impossible to keep up with the demand.

    Women’s Watches for Winter

    Dress

    Start your dress watch collection with a Geneva Platinum women’s quartz watch with its Mother-of-Pearl dial and simulated pearls and rhinestones on the band. This isn’t a watch you will wear every day. It has to be the right outfit, but then again, it’s under $50. You don’t need to wear it every day to justify the price. Pair it with a simple dress and let your watch splash the flash.

    Geneva also makes a Platinum Women’s Japanese quartz watch with textured link bracelet – again for under $50. The rectangular links close with a toggle clasp. It comes in all silver or two-toned, silver and gold tones.

    Classic

    If you are looking for a watch you will wear every day – or a watch that goes with your everyday outfits, then look for a classic style like the Stuhrling Original Women’s Gatsby Swiss quartz watch with the tooled alligator leather strap. For under $150, this watch comes in your choice of a stainless steel case in rose-tone, silver-tone or gold-tone. The rectangular silver-tone dial has a sub-dial at 6:00 and Arabic numerals at 3:00, 9:00 and 12:00. It all comes together with an elegant genuine leather strap with a Stuhrling Original logo-engraved push button deployant clasp.

    For under $100, you can go with a classic like the Citizen Women’s Eco-Drive quartz watch with a black dial and a gold tone case. A square date box at the 3:00 hour keeps you on scheduled. It affixes with a rich brown leather strap. And even better, it features a solar battery that will never need to be changed.

    Sport

    If you are looking for a watch that will accommodate more than an occasional jog, you should check out the Invicta Mid-size Pro Diver quartz watch with a pearlized dial, stainless steel case and nylon strap. It has a classic round gold-tone stainless steel case with a unidirectional rotating bezel and diver’s scale. The white pearlized dial has luminous index markers at all hours, except the quarter hours. The gold-tone hands show the time in any light. The black nylon strap fits up to an 8 1/2 -inch wrist.

    Glamour

    Looking for a watch that attracts attention? Consider the Adee Kaye women’s Cobra quartz watch with its crystal accents, Mother-of-Pearl dial and embossed leather strap. This is a watch that is equal parts jewelry and timepiece. The beautiful jeweled bezel is made up of 48 eye-catching purple or orange stones. The way the stones are set around the dial resembles flower petals surrounding the flower’s stigma. The brass gold-tone case surrounds a platinum-colored mother-of-pearl dial that features the image of a coiled cobra. The snake is bejeweled with Austrian crystals, as are the hour positions. A Japanese Miyota quartz movement drives the watch. It comes with either a brown or navy leather strap.

    For true glamour, go with a designer watch – like those produced by Gucci. This women’s Twirl Swiss quartz watch has an elegant black dial with the Gucci logo embossed on it and two silver-tone hands.

    Sexy Watch for Men

    Do you know that wrist watches are sexy? Or they could be if you like. When I meet a man with a nice wrist watch, I fancy that he removes it slowly before going to bed. If he wears some silly boy’s timepiece, things will begin to turn sour.

    It is important to view your timepieces as an extension of your sexual attraction. You don’t need to worry for this is not about price or famous brand. It doesn’t matter how much you will spend on your watch. The most important thing is that it should be suitable for you. Wrist watches are the only pieces of jewelry I would like to see on men.

    There is a huge selection of styles on the market. But in my opinion, I think men will look the most competent with large strap and large watch dial wrist watches which are the choices of the real man. They will make your wrist look strong.

    Sports Wrist Watch (Silver Is Preferred.)

    Yes. It is the timepiece I would like to see on your wrist. You don’t need to worry about the brands name. Any brand will be OK if it looks elegant and classic in your wrist. You don’t have to spend a small fortune. What matters most is the style.

    Digital Watch

    This watch makes me think of boys in 6th grade. It will make me think of you in the same way if I find a digital watch on you.

    Calculator Watch (also Digital Watch)

    Do the people who have it really use it for calculating? The truth is that all the serious mathematicians usually have expensive and fancy calculators. You will miscalculate with watches which have incredibly tiny buttons.

    Designer or Jewelry

    If you are wearing a jewelry watch, I will think that you are a woman at heart. I have a friend who has some jewelry watches and I always ask him not to wear them whenever he goes out with me. If you are going to meet me, I hope you will not look like Thurston Howell’s lost son.

    Dress Watch (Usually with Leather Straps)

    Many men like wearing these watches. But frankly speaking I don’t like them. These look girlie and flimsy to me. What’s more, leather in my mind is not strong enough.

    Other Factors to Think about:

    Shape – I prefer circular. Square always looks a little bit odd.

    Finish – I think matte is the best because it is the easiest one to keep clean. People always leave greasy fingerprints on shiny surfaces, which is very yuck.

    Gold – Don’t choose gold unless you are going to some special occasions. Because this will make other people think that you want to show off.

    Model Watch – This design makes it impossible to tell time. It is useless. Buy a real timepiece!

    White Watch Dial – This goes well with a sports watch. But you must remember that this doesn’t go with a leather band. The sharp contrast usually will make the watch look cheap.

    Black Watch Dial – I love this for a sports watch. I think it looks sexy.

    Dive Watches – Never buy dive watches unless you know how to apply them. I have asked many men to tell me how dive watches worked. But many of them told me that they had no idea and they just loved the look of their watches.

    Of course, these rules are not always right. Some gold watches are elegant, and some leather watches look perfect on the right wearer. However, if you want to be safe, I advise you to stick with these rules.

    Seiko Diving Watch

    The night-time luminosity is excellent, the watch uses Seiko’s Lumibrite technology, which is an organic luminous material. It is not radioactive and works very well. In any ambient light, the matte black dial with clear, tasteful luminous markers and dissimilar hands ensure that you always have the time at a glance. The absence of shiny metal surrounds for the hour markers keeps the dial look clean. The large arrow shaped minute hand on this Seiko diving watch is effectively differentiated from the hour hand so that I never confuse the two. Luminosity of dial and hands are roughly equal. If anything, the hands appear brighter. The luminous dot and bold triangle on the bezel also assures that you are able to track elapsed time in any lighting condition. The 120 click unidirectional bezel moves smoothly and with just the right tension to assure that accidental turns are minimised. I use that feature every day. I find a watch without a rotating bezel to be less useful unless it is a chronograph. Exposure to sunlight or light high in UV (fluorescent, for example) charges the luminous material, making it environmentally friendly. I have no trouble seeing the time at night. The flat crystal sits slightly below the bezel, which should help prevent scratches. I like a day and date function on a watch. Most diver’s watches don’t display the day and that makes this Seiko diving watch seems an even better choice. I love the blue Saturday and red Sunday.

    I swapped out the as delivered rubber strap with a Seiko jubilee style bracelet with flip lock clasp. I found that dresses the watch up nicely and is very comfortable. The strap is great, and conforms to the shape of your wrist after a while, I just prefer a metal bracelet. The crown at 4:00 is large, with fine grooving affording a good grip and is not irritating at all. Thanks to the domed back of the watch, it sits high enough on the wrist so that the crown of this Seiko Diving watch doesn’t form that annoying little callous on the back of one’s hand. For a watch this large, it is surprisingly comfortable. My wrist measures 6 1/2″ around, so I have relatively small wrists. The SKX173 Seiko diving watch crown guard is a visually delightful and wonderfully functional design that I have not seen work as well in any other watch,a terrific feature that is under-reported, IMHO. I remember thinking, on taking the watch out of the box, “Now this is a crown guard… ” It has never snagged on anything. Even if you don’t scuba dive, a Seiko diving watch has a tougher, thicker case /crystal and excellent sealing system, affording maximum protection for the movement within. It just makes sense if you want trouble free operation.

    A lot of concern has been expressed about timekeeping, so I should address that. Due to the Seiko Magic Lever winding system and despite the low mass rotor of the 7S26 movement, winding for me is efficient. I have not set the Seiko diving watch in two weeks, and it is currently indicating within a few seconds of the correct time as checked against an atomic clock using just these two simple tricks. In essence, fully wound, a little slow; not fully wound, a little fast. Your mileage may vary. Some combination of rest position and activity level will dictate your actions if you want the watch to be spot on. This is excellent performance for an unadjusted mass produced watch and says a lot about Seiko’s design talents and quality control. The 21,600 BPH (6 ticks per second) movement ensures lower stress than a high beat movement, increasing longevity. The lack of a hack feature can be overcome by applying slight backward pressure on the crown during setting. Care should be used to not have the watch run backward at this point, because that is bad for the escapement. This works best if the watch is not fully wound. I do not often use this approach, since I can speed the watch up or slow it down in use to achieve a good synchronization within a few days.

Rado, the Swiss watchmaker always focus on the quality of their watches and so they give emphasis on the objects that make their watches ahead than others. They are the ones that first used “ceramic” as a material to make models. From then, they have entered into the history.

    Accessorizing With Watches

    For some women, a standard leather or metal band watch is too masculine. Although such watches have long been unisex, those looking for something feminine go for a detailed watch face. Even though watch faces on these standard designs can’t separate from the bands, feminine details are added to the faces to give them more feminine character. Some options include colored watch faces, as well as those with a patterned or rhinestone edge. Pairing such a face with a basic leather or metal band gives a classic design a slight feminine touch that doesn’t appear ostentatious or gaudy.

    The other option for accessorizing with your watch is to wear a watch bracelet style. For women, these watches are designed like metal cuffs, bangles, or charm bracelets, and all have a face added. For the former two, one option for matching your watch to your outfit is to use a series of interchangeable bands or faces. A standard gold or silver face can be paired with a number of patterned bands made from metal, plastic, enamel, or beads that attach to the sides of the watch face. The opposite is to have a solid color band made from one of these materials with a series of decorative watch faces that slide on and off.
