Watches like the Temption Cameo aren't the types that "wow" you right off the bat. They aren't glitzy showpieces but well thought out "eventual classics." These are my favorite types of watches as of was you can appreciate how well they perform their main function of telling time, along with looking wonderful on your wrist. At about ,500 - ,000 these watches are a good value as I previously mentioned. Especially when you consider that all quality is top notch, and that you are getting a true designer's watch. I will definitely keep my eye out for a Temption Cameo to add to the collection.

IWW does not have a fancy website, but they do have a loyal following. Visit IWW here online. While they are located in North Carolina, you can easily send them your watch to get any manner of work done. Along with their standard services, they are open to a number of flexible customization options based on your particular vision. This is a nice benefit of working with a smaller operation, because you can have real personal contact with the watch mechanics and share your ideas as well as enjoy their feedback and advice.
Sadly, this is the closest picture I could get of the gold Bvlgari watch that is worn in Tony Stark's garage/workshop. The movie watch shares the gold case and "Bvlgari Bvlgari" names on the bezel, though it has a new chronograph feature which utilizes two retrograde indicators on the each side of the face. Traditional Bvlgari chronograph watches features typical round subdials for the chronograph registers. Use of retrograde registers is a stylistic approach that offers a more unique sense of functionality. Assuming I find images of the exact watch, I will place them in this post. Any heads up would be appreciated.
The Sinn 203 Arktis was designed as an extreme conditions chronograph. Meaning it retains accuracy well below freezing, and almost at boiling temperatures. The metal used resists corrosions, and of course you can dive to 300 meters with it. The case is filled with Argon gas for deep watch pressure sustainability, and the modified ETA Valjoux 7750 movement uses a special lubricant that will not freeze. All these features, plus more are designed for the planetary extremes, and yet most Sinn Arktis wearers will never experience most of what this watch can sustain.
While not knowing the details behind the C1's design, it is hard to accuse Concord or the new CEO of bad taste, or hasty decision making. Viewing the end product of any campaign is not a full telling of the efforts and intentions that went into the process. I therefore cannot say that this is a bad watch, or indicative of future watches to come out of Concord's new rule. I can however say that from a design perspective, this watch fails to live up to what a ,000 -,000 watch should be. No doubt many will be impressed by the Concord C1's bold and assertive looks. Others however will take issue with the many incomplete elements of the watch. The bottom line is that the C1 is not meant to be a cash cow for Concord. It is intended to bring attention to the brand. So that the new styling of the La Scala, Saratoga, and Mariner that I anticipate will arrive soon, will be all the more noticed by the watch loving public. These mainstream watches will be more important to Concord's future, and I can hope they will be given the necessary design treatments.
