Calling it little is probably wrong. For whatever reason, Buben & Zorweg neglected to let us know how large the watch is. If Antoine Martin watches are a hint, then this piece is going to be at least 44 - 46mm wide (UPDATE: Size is 46mm wide). The movement alone is almost 40mm in diameter. Inside the watch is the caliber BZ01-MHO. While I don't know who produces the movement, it was designed by Martin Braun. As you can see, the movement is adopted from the movement in the Antoine Martin Perpetual Calendar watch. The dial elements are mostly the same - with some rearranging. The only thing removed is the AM/PM indicator hand.

Each of the watches have bull-head style pushers with the crown being on the top of the case. The designs are overall very interesting and I like that Dzmitry Samal braved using a material that you really don't see in timepieces. For urban living or design lovers, these Dzmitry Samal's will be of particular interest. Each of the eight watches will be limited to either 100 or 150 pieces, and will be available on Dzmitry Samal's website at prices of between 980-1240 Euros each. Available for pre-order now, look for a November 2012 release.
Rather than having names, the watches are just given numeric names between the One and the Eight. Yes, there are eight models total in the first limited edition set. The dials play with monochromatic colors and hints of blue, red, yellow, and green. The dial designs look like creative fusions of maps, buildings, and blueprints. The hands all look like buildings or building spires. It is well done, and certainly well evocative of a theme. I like that some of the dials themselves are produced from cut and then engraved concrete, that is pretty cool.

Nixon, the California-based watch brand, wants a lucky aBlogtoRead.com winner to wear a Steelcat timepiece for the rest of the summer. The Steelcat is a large 48mm wide, steel cased watch available in three styles. Inside the watch is a Swiss quartz chronograph movement which also has the date. According to Nixon, the Steelcat is made for the "waterman's life." Funny since steel sinks and cats tend to dislike water. Though as a diver, it is water resistant to 300 meters so perhaps sinking is a good thing. It certainly has a fun surfing flair to it. Attached to the watch is a custom silicon strap. Price is 0 - 0 depending on the style. Winner gets their choice. Enter for a chance to win one below.
The next and least expensive of all the Golgo 13 Seiko watches is the Golgo 13 Air watch (Ref. SBDL011). Seiko also sometimes calls it the Golgo 13 Sky. This is based on popular Seiko pilot watches and again is done in black and red. The case is 43mm wide and has a rotating slide-rule bezel. On the metal bracelet, this is one of the most handsome version of the standard quartz Seiko pilot watch. Inside is the solar powered Seiko quartz caliber V172 movement. It has the time, date, chronograph, and alarm. The Seiko Golgo 13 Air watch will be limited to 500 pieces and price is 63,000 Yen.
