MSN Direct Weather Station

0

SPOT is pretty much dead – Tissot is pulling out and Fossil is find of done with it as well – but I guess this is a good solution. It’s a weather station that runs on MSN Direct. Not quite a watch, but close.

The Suunto M9i is a GPS watch for sailors. based on the M9, it’s essentially one of the smallest GPS timepieces out there. It’s got a USB that connects to a laptop to track your course over the uncharted miles. Quite nice.

Erotic Watches

A buddy of mine sent me a crazy book on erotic watches. These things are just about kookie as can be. You’ve got a really nice pocket watch or or minute repeater and you flip the bugger over and you’ve got nekkid folk wiggling away. I found this site that sells some nice little samples of the work and I know that Blancpain is working on rekindling the art.

These things were pretty much the Deep Throat of their day and every sly raconteur carried one.

Tissot T-Race Chronograph Watch

0

Another nice Tissot. I don’t like the quartz chronos, but that’s not a biggie.

Every element of the T-Race recalls these two-wheeled sports, from the crown protection and bezel with its slanting ventilation shafts, inspired by the braking discs, to the rubber tire-track bracelet, the speedometer-like counters on the dial and the very material of the case itself in a new synthetic mix high in carbon fiber.

Wear Your Nice Watch or Not?

0

Nice fat thread about wearing a “nice” watch – do it or not? I wear my Speedmaster to death. No reason to treat these things with kid gloves.

How does everyone feel about wearing their nice watches to work and around the house? One one hand I feel that I spent alot of money on these watches and I should enjoy wearing them even with the chance that they could get a scratch or mark on them. One the other hand I don’t want to get them scratched or damaged. I’m not talking about a $10, 000 watch. But more like $500 to $2500 watches. I’m leaning toward’s “just wear them and enjoy them.”

Ok, this is why I love watch geekery. Look at that picture. That arrow means something BAD IS HAPPENING. What is it? Does anyone really know? Does anyone know aside from three guys in the world? But this is important stuff, people.
