Say hello to the interesting Eco-Drive Proximity watch from Citizen. It is a watch that does a lot right, some things wrong, but is overall an important stepping stone in the future of the contemporary timepiece. I’ve said it many times and I will continue to say it until it is a reality, but the future of the mass-market wrist watch is in connectivity.
Rumors regarding new Apple products have lately proved to be extremely accurate. Since the death of Steve Jobs, Apple hasn’t quite kept the iron curtain pulled so tight. When mass speculation revolves around a new product or service, it is often a matter of “when” rather than “if” it will be released..
The new Citizen Eco-Drive Proximity Bluetooth watch is now for sale and available at AZ Fine Time. To honor its new release, we will be hosting an event at our retail store in Scottsdale.
We talk pilot watches and pilots – why do they love Breitling? A bit on the Asian watch market and a lot on the Brown Chronos Safe (for seriously expensive watch collections). Also, how does the iPhone 5 compare with high-end watches? Listen to the HourTime Show watch podcast episode 118 here. Download the MP3 […]
How is the iPhone 5 a lot like luxury watches? First, why compare the iPhone 5 to luxury watches? The iPhone has become the de facto phone of choice for people who can choose whatever phone they like.
At first glance this upcoming watch from Citizen is modern and cool, but it barely suggests its core appeal as a timepiece with Bluetooth connectivity. Look closely on the dial and you’ll find the Bluetooth logo to suggest it may do something else.
De Bethune has released what I think is probably the most high-end and beautiful iPhone 4s case I have ever seen. They started last year I think with phone cases when they released the classy looking De Bethune DBM. That case was in alligator and has a traditionally styled clock style watch in the back […]
This piece of rare game goes for an awful lot of coin. It has an interesting history, as well, starting out as the Gerald Genta Arena Metasonic Sonnerie watch. When Bulgari engulfed the Gerald Genta brand (head nod to Genta who just passed away), they kept this piece and made a few style changes to […]
This turns into a long a fun conversation on the value of high-end mobile phones (as centered around our discussion of the new Tag Heuer Link Smart Phone). We also discuss an iPhone app that measures the accuracy of your watch (Kello) and the goodness of Grand Seiko. Listen to the HourTime Show watch podcast […]
I was asked to give my opinion on how watch companies can best make sense of, and utilize iPhone applications by the IC-Agency over in Europe, that spends a lot of time trying to figure out how luxury brands should utilize the Internet. I do the same for watch companies so I was happy to […]
You’ve been hearing about watch makers creating iPhone app versions of their watches, but Victorinox Swiss Army has taken the concept to the next step. In addition to including digital versions of their watches (not likely all of their watches) they are using the “always connected” feature of the iPhone and the power of the […]
Is this Apple-horology? Glycine is the first luxury watch brand to make an iPhone app, but this execution of the concept is perfect. For those interested in the novelty, or who cannot afford the fine timepiece, they can get the next best thing, which is this clever app for the popular iPhone. The app is […]
The iPhone is many things to many people. For many it is an item of high fashion, and a clear signal to phone companies that tools like mobile phones carry a fashion element along with obvious utilitarian function. Watch makers have known this for years! We know this. The new iPhone 3G comes with a […]
P.E.A.R – People Enraged by Apple Relations: The New Word In the Anti-Apple Arsenal and Apple’s New iPhone Sales Policy
I am coining the acronym P.E.A.R (People Enraged by Apple Relations). Not just because Pears make a decent alternative to apples, but because mobilization and group think is an important part of rebelling against an evil empire. I think anti-Apple thinkers aren’t organized because our disdain of their policies and products is usually pretty obvious […]
As a product enthusiast I tend to have very strong opinions regarding how a company presents itself. Marketing and sales tactics, while not necessarily consumer friendly conversation is one of the most important parts of doing business. We have all had good and bad experiences with a company, for no business is perfect. However, when […]
