A New Year Equals New Watches

Posted in Watches with tags , , , , , , , , on January 25, 2013 by chronoshieldwatches

Good day and Happy New Year watch world. I know that’s a little late. I’ve been away for a while. It seems 2013 has already produced an explosion of innovation, ingenuity and down right coolness when it comes to men’s watches. Let’s tally it all up. Jaeger LeCoultre has a new Deep Sea Chronograph Cermet. Kobold Watch Co. has gone on a spiritual journey & produced the Himalaya Deity Edition. IWC has fused analog & digital into one watch with the Ingenieur Perpetual Calendar Digital Date-Month timepiece. Luminox continues to soldier on with the Nav SPC( Navigation Specialist), a new model from their RECON series along with the Steel Color Mark Chronograph 3180 series.I’m excited to see what else 2013 has in store in the world of horology.

Can’t Live Without My Chronograph

Posted in Science and Time Keeping, Watches with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 14, 2012 by chronoshieldwatches

In today’s fast paced environment, we may find ourselves constantly multi-tasking. This habit even applies to time keeping. It doesn’t matter if you’re behind a desk, in a cockpit, playing spy vs. spy, climbing a mountain, chasing bad guys, diving to find Nemo or having a romantic dinner. Having a chronograph watch on your wrist always comes in handy. I’m personally addicted to chronograph time-pieces. From Casio to Audemars Piguet and everything in between. If it’s a chronograph, it gets my attention. My eyes light up even more if you add instruments like tachymeters( measures speed), telemeters( measures speed of sound for phenomenons like thunder & lightning). Oh, and don’t add a compass rose on a rotating bezel! I can’t live without my chronograph.

Good Monday watch world. I’m sure you guys have enjoyed many of the movies that have been released this year. I took the time to try to find out what time pieces were being worn on the big screen. Samuel L. Jackson wore a Piaget Polo white gold chronograph in ” The Avengers”. Tom Cruise donned a Tudor Heritage Chronograph in “Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol”.  Will Smith wore Hamilton Ventura while chasing ET in “Men In Black 3″. The Active Duty Navy Seals in ” Act of Valor” put Jaeger-Le Coultre watches to the test. Jeremy Renner of course wore the IWC ‘s Pilot’s Watch Double Chronograph while taking on the role of Aaron Cross in ” The Bourne Legacy”. I mean, the list goes on but I wanted to highlight some of my favorites. Oh! How could I forget about the cast of “Battleship” and Luminox.
