When it comes down to it, that is what the Meta is all about - notifications. The new company slogan is actually "Art of the Glance." The idea being that the Meta serves to take your eyes away from your phone to let you know if you have new messages, missed calls, etc... Meta promises an improved lifestyle by being less glued to your phone and able to merely glance at your watch rather than pull something out of your pocket or purse to check for a new e-mail or text. I think it is a clever position for the product, but it also means that there really isn't any functional innovation with regards to the features of a smartwatch.
The Gc-3’s bezel – which is very reminiscent of that of an Audemars Piguet Royal Oak – and the unusual shape of the case and crown guard, makes the whole watch look slightly larger than the dimensions would suggest. You could describe the Gc-3 as being a bit ‘bling,’ but this is largely down to Gc’s fashion heritage, and it certainly is not ‘too much’ – for me, at least.
Finally, the Oro Bianco is the only one to get a sandwich dial, in which the luminous elements of the black dial are actually cut-outs that reveal a luminous layer underneath the main dial, another distinctly Panerai design trait. Each model has its merits and the overall design is one that mixes a bit of current-day Panerai with a lot of vintage-sourced style.
2. Omega Seamaster Bullhead Chronograph Watch Hands-On
You see, the benefit of the Precisionist family of movements is three-fold. These quartz movements have a sweeping seconds hand just like mechanical watch and also feature far greater accuracy than traditional quartz movements. Most of the quartz movements you'll find in watches are accurate to about 15 seconds a month. With a three-pronged versus two-pronged quartz crystal inside, the Precisionist movement operates at an amazingly fast frequency of 262.144 kHz (kilohertz). That means these Precisionist watches are accurate to just a few seconds each year.
What do we know about the 2014 Rolex watches? The video doesn't share much, but there is a teaser of the side of one watch. It is clearly an Oyster style case and it has a fluted bezel. The flutes however are rather shallow so it might indicate a brand new model– versus a revision on an existing model. My guess is that it is a new version of a Datejust of a Day/Date, or something similar. We shall see soon! rolex.com

Rolex has a room with multiple electron microscopes and some gas spectrometers. They are able to take an extremely close look at metals and other materials to investigate the effects of machining and manufacturing techniques. These large areas are extremely impressive and are used seriously on a regular basis to remedy or prevent possible problems.
To begin with, we used official retail prices dating back as far as 1957, based on data compiled by Minus4Plus6.com. This magnificent price table contains authorized retailer prices in about 5-year steps for just about all important Rolex references that debuted in or after 1957. We processed the raw data linked to two of the more popular models of the brand, namely the Submariner no-date and the Cosmograph Daytona, and we have also looked at the Submariner in 18k gold to see how this precious material has affected affordability. We dedicated charts to each of these examples. On the charts, we have marked in black the respective retail prices for each year, while in red we indicate how the price of each watch would have changed over the years had Rolex raised prices only to counter the effects of monetary inflation.
Honestly, as a big watch it wears well. 48mm of width and about 16mm of thickness can't be disguised, but the watch wears it well, and the short lugs are curved for maximum comfort. Even with my smaller wrists I'd be more than happy to pull something like this off on a regular basis. Perhaps not as a daily wear, but a timepiece like this makes a case for itself combining style and utility. The dial is perhaps the strong-point of the Pilot Montre d'Aeronef Type 20 GMT. Excellent contrast and easy-to-spot numerals and hands make it a breeze to read. Zenith - always a quality producer of hands - uses a brushed polish for the properly-sized hands and fills them with lume. Thus, you not only have a dial with ideal proportions, but also one that is free from reflected light due to the lack of reflective surfaces. Allow me to once again plead with watch makers; please stop putting improper reflective surfaces on watch dials.
Welcome back to an original aBlogtoWatch feature, "My First Grail Watch". In this series, we ask prominent people in the watch industry about the first timepiece that they lusted after.
