I have liked the Xetum watches since they came to market and would love to have one. As for a modern watch that I am interested in, the sevenfriday P3-2 is a cool modern design. Thanks for the opportunity!

Really loving this blog.  This Stinson from Xetum would look really at home on my wrist. 

How could one not completely adore the Opus X, like many others have said, it's completely out of my league, but a guy can dream.

My favorite modern design watch would have to be the mb&f hm5. I love the rear louvre design elements. It's a watch that's so far out of my league that it also adds that dream desire feel to it as well.

Wait! There's two Xetum giveaways? Thank goodness I get your emails, otherwise I wouldn't have known.

 

My favorite watch that features a modern or contemporary design? Does Pierre Kunz's Insanity watch count? That thing is crazy expensive but if I had the money, it would be on my wrist right now!

I am usually a black and stainless steel (or white gold) guy, but this brown Xetum with leather strap has caught my eye

I like some of the Ritmo Mundo watches (men and women's)

The modern watch of choice would be Hamilton Ventura XXL, however I love the balance of the Stinson. I do not look for a watch to add to my collection I look for the perfect watch to wear everyday any occasion. The Stinson will one day fill this role for me, with the choice of bracelet or leather strap it fits any role form formal to cleaning the yard. Jamesmhowe@gmail.com

One of my favorite watches that feature a modern or contemporary design is the Sinn 857, for its bold face and super readability, not to mention it's fashionable as well. It will be my next watch on the list.

I like the Stinson it is an interesting design that I would love to show off to my uncultured slubs of friends. It would be a beautiful addition to my hopefully ever growing timepiece collection.

Love the bold look of the Xetum watches and it fits with my requirement of clear watch face. I'm also lead to believe they have some of the most comfy straps in the world.  For something a little more contemporary I think the look of a Christopher Ward C700 Grande Rapide is just wonderful. The use of carbon fibre with a mechanical drive is a bonus :-)

 Hey much love for Xetum watches,California homegrown company is the way to go! I just bought a Lum-Tec online for a good price and this convinced my owner of the jewelry store I work at to start carrying Lum-Tec's , customers kept commenting of how nice my watch was and he started carrying them. They now outsell most watches in their price range including U*BOAT, Omega and Hamiltons. The watch and jewelry shop I work at is outside NYC in CT and we get so many darn rich freaks its cRAZZY< i can convince them to buy what they see, granted these ARE great products! I buy all of my watches online, but research them and if a price is competitive locally at a brick & mortar shop, I will purchase it there. I know if i can get a Xetum on my wrist it will be good for at least 10 sales at my store, my owner loves me. LOVE XETUM & THIS BLOG. keep on ticking.....

 

Thanks

Be still my beating heart! The Xetum Stinson oozes the classy sophistication of a high end model. A horologist's wet dream. The small crown, tambourine hips, dressed in leather is just as magnetic as any hour-glass figure. 

 

Wetting my appetite, I've always loved the Doxa Sub 750t Pro with its loud, flamboyant good looks, an inspiration for today's Seiko "Orange Monster"

However, the XS with its Rolex category  Swiss ETA 2824-2 DNA speaks volume, like the percussion desire for Eve, in the forbidden garden of watches. If the Rolex Swiss cheese is a bridge too far, then the Swiss Roll with cream XS is more satisfying and within reach.

Living with hope and desires.

While I haven't personally seen one and the it is a bit pricey,  the Devon Tread is a very cool, modern, unique take on a timepiece.

I have been looking at this brands watches for some time. I think its modern, yet classic for a pilot watch. It would be a pleasure to wear it.

Really Like the Xetum Stinson look & size. . Like the modern clean dial in the Helson Blackbeard on ISO strap recently purchased.

My watch of choice is the popular Rolex Submariner Date. Of newer modern watches, the Meistersinger is very unique.

Biegert & Funk's Qlocktwo is one of my favorite modern designs. It fits perfectly in today's age of iPods, iPads, smartphones, and the technological age we live in. Xetum watches fill an important role as a bridge between traditional and contemporary.

Since I'm from Denmark, I'll support one of my favourite brands: LindeWerdelin. SpidoLite II, preferably DLC is one of the watches in my top wishes for 2013.

 This Xetum round design is one of the best looking "modern" designs and it would be a honor to win this watch, and wear it...

I enjoy reading the detailed desriptions provided on your blog as it helps me decide what to look for when deciding on the purchase of a watch.. Also like the Xetum round design and the way it stands out on the wrist. One of my favorite watches is the Ulysee Nardin Maxi Marine, very sporty and detailed.

Clean design.  Would like to see it a little thinner, however.

Xetum watches are great for new and contemporary style. But I think the design will also last for a while and you will not get tired looking at it so fast.

@waldoh Looks like you were right... no response and it doesn't seem like they're going to give us one either. That's pretty crappy.

Who won the giveaway? It would be nice to find out or for it to be listed on the post itself, otherwise anyone can post fake giveaways to create publicity and not ever give anything away lol.

I think that the desing of watches like Xetum and Lum Tec is awesome because they use the minimalism to make really beautiful watches that looks so great for everyone that enjoy the style and details. I know that this king of desings always going to be on the top, over other “ modern ” brands that made digital or led watches.

The Xetum line-up are some of the best looking "modern" designs. Most fall too far on the side of trendy...

I still love the Mr Jones watch, "The Accurate". Strangely morbid compared to my usual take on life, but it works for me. Mr. Jones has quite a few interesting & fresh designs. Just need one that's built like a tank without the bulk . .

The Nixon Automatic II is a winner and a great piece of american watch crafting.

If price is no object, then the Richard Mille "Extra Flat Automatic" RM 033 watch with the Arabic numerals would be one of my favorite contemporary watches. But in the real world, the Xetum Stinson has a great clean "techie" look (love the computer-like slashes in the zeros) and yet looks classy enough to wear with a suit.
