Replica Longiness Les Elgantes Watches
Last are the Omega Olympics Timeless De Ville 5-Counter Chronograph and the Olympic Timeless Planet Ocean Chronograph Ladies watches. These are pretty straight forward really. You know the movements, you know the style. They are simple revisions of other Omega styles. The De Ville is in steel and 44mm wide with an alligator strap, and a very clean white face. Price for it is 5,760 euros. The most expensive of the bunch oddly enough. Last is the ladies Planet Ocean that looks good but quite masculine. Size is for the ladies though at 37.5mm wide. Price for it is 4,530 euros. Again, I am not sure about US prices or when the watches will be available (though likely early next year). I do however think that they are a great idea for Omega and look forward to seeing them soon.
The show is really good though, and from now on we will be using good ol' American high-speed Internet! Happy New Year, all!
The watch is really all about the dial - which looks great. First and foremost for Seiko is function. As you can see the Chronograph and GMT models are extremely easy to use and read. For a simpler look you can go with the GMT model. It has the time, date, GMT hand, and a power reserve indicator. Very clean lines, and impressively bold, yet beautiful. The chronograph model adds a 12 hour chronograph to the mix, with the chronograph subdials being stacked for the easiest reading possible (all the chronograph hands are also red). Let me tell you why Seiko high-end chronographs are the best on the market to use (in my humble opinion). First, the chronograph movements utilize a column wheel and vertical clutch (if you don't know what these are, that is OK, but they are things you want in a chronograph movement). In addition to being accurate (and actually increasing the power reserve time on the Spring Drive watches!) they utilize a "ready, set, go" feature. The chronograph pushers have a two-stage operation. Let me explain this simple but important concept. Press the chronograph start/stop pusher down and you feel a gentle springy resistance until it comes to the first stop. You've just gone from "ready" to "set." Then press down a bit more and you start the chronograph. The chronograph starts precisely when you press the pusher down the second time, without any lag time. This way you start the chronograph at just the right time, and it feels so nice! The second you try it, you'll be sold - I was. It might even make you use the chronograph function much more than normal. The chronograph is also used for the tachyemeter scale on the bezel. That is a function no on uses.

Guess what, China could care less about intellectual property rights. So copyright, trademark, and patent in infringement is just a whim away most of the time. The watch industry has had to deal with this for many years when it comes to replica or fake watches, but there are also other types of trademark infringement situations such as this. Certain Chinese mobile phone makers like to attach high-end names to phone such as this "Rolex" mobile phone. Taking out the legal issues, this is a cute if not slightly pathetic looking homage to what Rolex might be as a phone maker. Who knows, after companies such as Tag Heuer and Ulysse Nardin have made luxury mobile phones, maybe Rolex will someday? How knows.
