Quick looks

Just a quick look at any watch models that catch my eye.

The Cartier contradiction . .

It is I suppose a model that blithely flies along just under the radar in the “must have” stakes and yet, for me personally, I think out of all Cartier models, is the one you would be a fool to pass up, given the opportunity to own it.

Feice Bauhaus – Budget or Bargain?

But for Fiece, the clever idea of using the Bauhaus concept and promoting to the global market promoted with – Form, Function and a certain marketing seriousness, hasn’t hindered them in their mass market approach and by increasing the quality is a real bonus.

Minimalist

Their web site shown quite a few variants, with minimalism and simplicity being the theme running through the range. And for the price, these are what I call very neat fashion style watches, which to my mind are just the thing for gifts to cheer someone up. 

Is it just me?

So basically this is an overly fancy single hand watch – and I’ve had them before, bought for the novelty, but which unfortunately in practice soon wears off – and I sold them on to some other geek somewhere. 

Edgemere by Martenero

So as I say, at last a neat, new clean looking model from the USA that manages to catch my eye at last.  So many models today seem to be blah, blah – more of the same.  The Martenero I’m pleased to say is not one of them

It looks the part!

There is also another digital window opposite the 2, which has a mobile segmental style counter of sorts – I say of sorts as I have to discover exactly what it represents.  The square segment markers don’t seem to run in any identifiable order, though I suspect they should count 10 seconds in sequence, but they don’t – maybe a glitch just on this particular watch.

Day Date survivors?

A great feature of the Automatic is that a) it doesn’t have a battery, b) it doesn’t require a light source and c) setting Time Zones or Summer Times is a simple case of crown out, move hands, crown in – job done. No instruction booklets
