This was a great watch to write about because it is just a good execution of the jumping hour theme. Does it mean that I am partial to digital watches because I like it? That is basically what a jumping hour watch is, a hybrid between a digital watch and an analog one. Of course it would still be a mechanical digital watch. No quartz movements here. Read about this lovely Perrelet Jumping Hour watch on my AskMen.com article here.
But as one discerning woman... I trust that it will continue to be savvy, sexy, and most of all, complicated.
Timex is one of the most important watch brands in the world, and is certainly the king of US watch brands in terms of volume. The company has lots of sub-brands or departments, and they consider the "Timex Expedition" line to be its own mini entity. This watch is the result of some interesting development, and is one of the most appealing male watch designs that I've seen in a while. While the watch is unique looking, it is trying to be familiar. Let me explain. It basically strives to resemble that world of wrist-borne gadgets and instruments that we've been seeing in movies and video games for years... finally ready for us real people! The best part is that the Expedition WS4 is more than just looks, the user interface is genuinely well-designed to be easy to operate and useful. All this needs to be taken in consideration with the reasonable price of the watch, as well as it's pedigree.

You can get a great feel for exactly what the watches look like here. I wish you could see the turbine spinning in action - it looks so cool. Nothing like wheel spinners 🙂 The finish in the turbine blades is a brushed polish, to give that an authentic aviation look. Like I said in my original review, the spinning turbines (that spin with the automatic rotor to wind the mechanical automatic movement) do not hinder the view of the hands which are nicely conspicuous. The naked titanium model is the easiest to read due to the high contrast of the hands. Each is covered in lume which is nice. The face of the watch as a nice deep feeling to it. You can look down into it and see all the layers. The periphery of the dial is sloped inward, and you can see the easy to view hour makers that make this more than simply a showy watch.
Other brands should look to them as an example that works...
Another unique detail on the Moonflower is that the Hours, Minutes, and Seconds indicators have been replaced by traditional hands with 3 separate discs that move in harmony with the movement of the watch.
Living with my Skagen for a while has told me a lot about a brand that I was missing in my collection. It isn't a watch like the other ones that I have; so obsessed with function, materials, and construction. It is a simple and elegant timepiece, about as simple as you'd want while working to perform its task well. The Danish minimalist design and attitude carry throughout the watch and make it easy to live with. It doesn't seek to replace my more rugged looking or functional watches. It is instead like a breath of fresh air on less serious days, when what you wear isn't nearly as important as having an attractive clean looking watch that no one can argue with. And then there is the price, which at at 5 retail (a bit less online in most places), makes this watch a bona fide bargain for what you get. I think the only way Skagen can keep the price low is because they enjoy a high volume of watches being made and sold each year - thus keeping costs per a unit down. It means a good value for you, and a testament to their worldwide high marketability. You won't find too many similar watches with a good value like this. And for that reason I am going to consider a good deal and a recipient of my aBlogtoRead.com Good Value award. skagen.com
Wow, I did not expect to see something so bold from Blancpain this year. This is a totally new route for their diving watches. At first I was torn about the look (didn't see to be much more than what Invicta could come up with), but then I began to appreciate the more subtle items. Retained are the sapphire crystal tops on the rotating bezel (such a nice feature by the way), and new are the hands, and the face. The hands are really designed for perfect legibility in both light and dark situations, not one or the other which is sometimes the fact. They also remind me of torpedoes. I think that is intentional. The wild looking lume on the face is also fucntion, and not just for show. Somehow, it seems to make the watch easy to read in the dark when you aren't used to simply using the hands.

So what do I think about the watch overall? I think it is a conservatively styled, handsome watch, that has a feeling of quality easily capable of many good years of wrist service. Though it is not the type of watch that hardcore watch aficionado's will lust for, aside from the historic and collectible significance of it. You know, Bill Clinton started a modern trend with wrist watches in wearing an inexpensive Timex Ironman during his presidency. His doing so was a clever tactic to appeal to the "average person," (even though it pissed off other politicians and foreign dignitaries). The Timex was admittedly an ugly watch, and Clinton coincidentally is currently a major high-end watch collector. I think that Obama is doing something similar, but trying to be more tasteful about it. The Jorg Gray 6500 won't offend anyone, and has a suitable amount of function, style, and classic demeanor - especially for a politician, or the president. Plus the watch is analog, not digital. It makes total sense for him to wear it, and I think he made the right choice to keep it on his wrist. The decision he made was a good one also for Jorg Gray, and put this timepiece forever in the place as a relic of the times, and all that his presidency means to many different groups. So once again, if you want to own the "the President's watch," you can, and you should have no qualms about it. It is not the last wrist watch you'll ever get, but a fun and meaningful addition to your collection.
You'll notice how I removed the motor which is directly hooked up to the winding carriage. A few more small crews allows you to remove and unclip the winding motor. Like I said, the internal components of this winder are better than what I have been in the past (some actually use tape to hold down cables). This also goes for the Japanese made motor which communicates a lot more confidence. Further, I don't imagine it costing more than about to replace if it went bad. The entire "operation" or switching out the motor should take someone who knows how to use a screw driver about 10 minutes max. About 2 minutes if you do it everyday. It is really that simple. From that perspective I am happy about the simplicity and ease of operation with this watch winder. Sure the device is make out of plastic, and isn't going to raise the property value of your bedroom or office, but it won't scratch your precious watches and is certainly no liability whatsoever.
