EleeNo watches are not new to you but there is something special in these timepieces so Tokyo Flash once again offers the third version of EleeNo EG watch. This new EleeNo uses the same original procedure of time telling like the two previous one. The new EleeNo EG3 sports a metal face with a grid of raised glass windows. The colored LCD markers below indicate the time.To tell the time: Counting the LCD blocks in the top row of windows shows the hour 1-12. The middle row of windows indicate 10-minute blocks & the bottom rows show single minutes. Quite simply, if the rows show 3, 4 & 7 then its 3:47. There is also a flashing EG icon in the centre window which shows the seconds ticking by. So if you are impressed with this new timepiece, you can buy the model of your own choice as three models with different colored LCD display are available. You can choose from Blue, Red or Green. The strap is a matt finish polyurethane, is easily adjustable at home and water resistant up to 3ATM.
‘Wow! Beautiful fashion watch’ is the right expression fore this nifty Electronic Date Indicator watch. This extremely stylish timepiece sports an en electric date indicator and two characteristic circles, which play the role of hands. There is no declaration yet on whether this concept will ever go into production. Since the date indicator is an electronic display, it could be placed anywhere on the face. Due attention was paid to the placement and size of the figures for the date, with their disposition and size representing modern times. The winding mechanism is located in the upper zone, making the use of the watch easier.
I have already introduced you with the new Rolex Yacht-Master II that was introduced at Baselworld 2007. Now Rolex’s another amazing timepiece is Milgauss. This Rolex Milgauss is well known for its ability to resist a magnetic field of 1,000 Gauss. The new Rolex Milgauss uses the classic Faraday Cage construction and sports a green glass on the black dial version. I know you are wondering that how-cum this Rolex wristwatch can resist magnetic field of 1,000 Guass? Here is the answer; it has Parachrom-Blu hairspring that guarantees anti-magnetic resistance. This Parachrom-Blu hairspring is completely unaffected by electro-magnetic forces. Hmm! Pretty good achievement! Even several escapement parts and one wheel are made from a new and undisclosed alloy, which is as resistant as the hairspring. The Milgauss comes in the new, slightly larger case size of 40mm, with the 3131 movement. There are white and black dial versions available, both with a nifty and surprisingly modern lightning shaped second hand and ‘ROLEXROLEXROLEX’ around the face on the chapter ring. (As Christian noted, for better or worse, the new models are more heavily branded than their predecessors.) One difference between the two versions is that the black dial has a sapphire crystal that is slightly green at an angle, as you can see from the image gallery on their site. List price on both is rumored to be $5,900. Now let’s have insight into the history of Milgauss model. It was introduced in 1954 for those people who worked in environments with strong magnetic fields for example, power plants, research labs, etc. The IWC Ingenieur, the Patek Philippe Amagnetic, and the Omega Rail master, all of which had similar magnetic resistance, further crowded this small market. The Milgauss was the slowest seller in the Rolex lineup, and was sold for about 20 years before being removed from their catalog. This timepiece is tough and has excellent retro styling. I liked its well-designed bracelet.
I loved the Nixon Deveaux Women’s wristwatch that combines the functionality with the elements of jewelry. The timepiece utilizes a hammered metal face with strips of leather for a bracelet that can be attached securely with a push button closure. The watch also features hardened mineral crystal frame, a Nixon logo and the Deveaux’s 3-hand Japanese quartz movement. The watch is available in four colors, so you can choose the one according your choice. I liked white and brown one they just look great. And by spending $130 you can own this fashion watch.
Bertolucci’s Serena is all about sensual curves, daringness and elegance. Serena Fuchsia by Bertolucci is equipped with Swiss quartz movement. Natural white mother-of-pearl dial and case set with 52 FGV-VVS diamonds and 8 baguette fuchsia sapphires embraces women’s wrist elegantly. This elegant timepiece has curved anti-reflective crystal, Fuchsia ‘Pearl of the Nile’ calfskin strap with buckle. But if you want Deployment buckle that can also be added to it. It offers water resistance up to 30 metres. I liked the purple color but if you didn’t found it appealing you can go for orange color.
Have a look at this Reactor Trident Never Dark watch. This is a stylish sports watch and at the same time tough too. The timepiece is such designed that can be used any adverse weather conditions and in any type of lighting conditions. The watch’s new Never Dark dial illumination technology makes it quite an exclusive one and keeps Reactor Trident dial visible even in the darkest conditions. In the darkness, the watch first utilizes phosphorescent paint on the dial and hands that keep it bright for hours after exposure to any light source is gone. To back this up the Trident has tritium filled gas tubes which give off a fainter glow but will keep the dial illuminated enough to read the time for as long as 7 years. The Reactor Trident utilizes a scratch and shatter resistant glass face and offers water resistance up to 200 meters. The watch comes in the different patterns of solid titanium or marine-grade 316L stainless steel. And the pricing of the Never Dark watch varies from $300 to $450.
Bored with those traditional watches with complicated features and want to flaunt some nice looking luxury watch! Then why don’t you try Dior’s Christal wristwatch.

The timepiece is also equipped with silver sub dials, steel pushers, polished Superluminova hands, curved sapphire crystal, pure S.I. diamonds with F.G. color, engraved screw-in case back and encrusted with sapphire crystal cut pyramids.
