The quartz chronograph movement is likely a Ronda, as Xemex has been known to use their movements in the past. The functionality is simple and straight forward, but it is the interesting design direction for Xemex that interests me. The entire watch is focused around the asymmetrical case, with a lot of it leaning toward the pushers. This concept is not new (though it is for Xemex). Asymmetrical cases like this have been showing up since the 1960s. In the 1980s, Seiko was playing with similar designs a lot. This watch features a lot of those ideas with the Xemex twist. Frankly, the design is not a Xemex as it could be. The logo, seconds hand, and hour markers are pretty iconically Xemex, but the rest isn’t. For instance, parts of the case and the main hands of the watch remind me more of Panerai than Xemex. Few companies other than Xemex can pull off this bold of a yellow face, which is also luminescent. The face is also available in white and black, in addition to the yellow. The strap is rubber with a steel deployment clasp.

You'll notice that three dial colors are available. Rubber and steel straps are available, with the exception of the blue faced model that apparently only comes with the steel bracelet. The bracelet itself features a diver's extension in case you were wondering. Retail price of the new line is about ,600. Expect a solid street price at just over ,000. I'd say that is a reasonable prices given the design, Tag Heuer name, and solid reputation behind the brace.

Now comes Longio's second tourbillon watch, the yet to be properly named 1000m Diving Tourbillon. Diver tourbillon watches aren't new, but this combination of 1000m water resistant case, sporty looks, and cost of about ,000 simply cannot be found in any European watch for double, triple, or even quadruple the cost. In fact most European diving tourbillon watches cost north of 0,000. So while ,000 sure isn't cheap, it is a bargain compared to the competition. As a special benefit to Longio, it is part of a company that produces many watch parts for German and Swiss watch makers. The only difference here is that it bears a name that is openly Chinese in origin.

You'll notice that the metal bracelet is Sinn's five link steel bracelet that it tends to use on it's higher-end watch models, and the thick leather strap has a nifty looking attached plate with the Sinn logo on it. With a thin bezel, the watch features an internal rotating bezel that is turned via the crown located at the 10 o'clock position. The internal rotating bezel is highly functional and something I have never seen before in this style - with Arabic numeral indictors for each minute. Very precise and a look that I like. You then have the indicators (Arabic for every other number) for the UTC hand as well, that while visible - don't seem to get in the way. Sinn "guarantees" high visibility and the luminant-covered hands contrast well with the galvanized black watch face. The little "Ar" indicator means that the face is filled with argon gas - part of a special system to keep the inside of the watch free from moisture, and running smoothly in almost any climate condition, and under all types of pressure conditions. Further assisting the moisture free zone of the watch is a moisture absorbing capsule in the watch indicated by the other little icon above the "Ar" on the watch dial.

This is a single watch winder under the Time Tutelary brand, but it could easily go under different names. I received this winder from Watch-Winder.co.uk which is probably the best place to go for an inexpensive, practical watch winder in England (yes I know I am not in England, which means I need to use a US adapter for the winder).

As I mentioned, the articles on Examiner.com will be different than what I write elsewhere, but will be geared more toward people who aren't as deeply involved as we all are in watches - though I hope to convert as many people as possible. One of my overall goals is to bring a love for watches back to Americans. Stroll down the street in any US city and you'll find legions of people wearing watches. Sure it isn't everyone, but at least half of the other men I see have a watch. This means that people are wearing watches, but unfortunately they aren't always nice watches. This doesn't just have to do with money, as there are tons of reasonably priced cool watches out there.  I'd love to see more people place increased effort into discovering great watches as they are most likely going to wearing them each day. Keep an eye at my Examiner.com page as there will inevitably be things there you'd want to read about that I don't cover here.

Located at the manufacture are various machines that work on the plates. One such machine is the CNC (Computer Numeric Control) device. This large machine is responsible for taking the metal plates and making the famous 3/4 German watch movement plates. The machine bathes the plates in a mineral oil while drilling and cutting them based on a pre-programmed design. That programming is what is essential to the entire process. Computer and hand drawn designs are blown up and carefully scrutinized by measurement machines. When the dimensions are perfect, the movement designs are programmed into the CNC machines to be cut on into the German Silver plates. The machines have a tolerance of just 4 microns. Deviations are not acceptable, and almost never experienced. The process of making the movement plates is about as calculated and time consuming as you might expect. The machine shops look like a cross between an optician's lab and an autoshop, but ultra clean and highly functional. Lots of white, and the hum of expensive machinery with the sweet scent of lubricating oil. No white coats just yet, you need to get further into the process for that.
