5. The Incredibly Funny Watch Reviews On Amazon.com
Kelly Rowland: It was a collaborative effort, definitely. I definitely had a lot of ideas about how the numbers looked – from the font to how they read – as well as the concept of an all-black watch. When it came to the subdials, the TW Steel family really knew what to do; it’s a signature.
Like many 3D printing hobbyists, Falco engaged in the project to replicate his watch in 3D printed form to see if it would work. This is a common motivating factor for enthusiasts, and places like Thingverse are full of "look what I replicated using my 3D printer" experiments. Not all work out this well. According to Falco the entire project was done with a budget of under 0 - and most of that is in the cost of the 3D printing material. The real expense, of course, is in time if you want to do one yourself. Falco did all the work of designing the parts, but you'll have to print them, sand them, and assemble this very complex project. As a testament to his skills, even the ratcheting uni-directional rotating bezel system on the watch works.
So if you’re in a bind and need a dress watch, there’s usually always something from the brand to fit a wide variety of tastes. The Bambino FER24005W0 is Orient’s iconic dress offering. For a retail price just over 0 (with street prices often falling below that number) you get a classic looking, automatic-movement three-hander complicated only by a simple date window at three o’clock. It is probably the go-to automatic dress watch for anyone who needs something in a pinch and doesn't want a mere throwaway Chinese item.
Earlier this year, Ariel and I set off to attend the Couture Watch Show, held at the Casino Wynn in Las Vegas, and it was here that I had the chance to meet Leonid Khankin, CEO of Ernst Benz and also to go hands-on with some of the brand's limited edition watches. From the wide variety of watches that the brand had on display, it was a bold, bright blue dialed watch - specifically, the Ernst Benz Chronoracer Sport or "Chronosport" - that caught my attention. So coming up now is a selection of hands-on images and a personal take on this vibrant limited edition.
The Autodromo Stradale will be available in three different configurations comprising a version with a cream dial and brown strap, a black dial and burgundy strap, and a grey dial with blue strap. And for those who think this release is not "vintage" enough, all watches will come with a vintage-inspired map (yes, that), evoking the idea of a road trip in Northern Italy circa 1960. Any one of the three versions of the Autodromo Stradale are available for pre-order at the brand's website and are said to make it to retailers soon, with a price tag of 5. autodromo.com
