I believe that smartwatches, or some form of smart wearables, are the future. It is only a matter of time. They won’t replace our good old mechanical watches, but I think they will become more relevant and useful as technology improves. So in this round-up, you will find an overview of the smartwatch market today and also highlights of some of the most popular smartwatches on sale.

Next, we have a smattering of watches from the Land of the Rising Sun, beginning with the humble G-Shock GWX5600C-7. This watch is special because it is said to be similar to only one of two G-Shock watches that G-Shock inventor, Kikuo Ibe, owns. Next, we have the return of the Seiko Samurai, specifically the Prospex Blue Lagoon Samurai limited edition watch. And finally, we have the absolutely sublime Grand Seiko SBGA011, a watch with one of the most remarkable dials in all of watchmaking.

1. Casio G-Shock GWX5600C-7 ‘Kikuo Ibe’ Watch Review

BEST FROM: aBlogtoWatch & Friends May 19, 2017 ABTW Round-Ups

There are an unfathomable number of G-Shock watches, but the humble GWX5600C-7 is one of the more special ones simply because it is a model similar to one of only two watches that Kikuo Ibe owns. Who’s Kikuo Ibe? He is the inventor of the G-Shock. Actually, it is not hard to see why. The GWX5600C-7 is simple, quite understated (apart from its rather bright white case), and embodies all of the qualities and traits that we have come to love from a G-Shock watch. It is hardy, tough, and comes packed with all the features and functions that just about anyone could want – chronograph, world-timer, alarm, it is all there. G-Shock fans should definitely consider adding the GWX5600C-7 to their collection.

2. Seiko Prospex Blue Lagoon Samurai SRPB09 Limited Edition Watch Review

Aside from the slightly disorientating outer dial on one variant, the Commander II is a fine looking and legible watch. I’d have liked to find a few more components of the original if it were up to me personally (which sadly it seldom is). Those components include the more squared hour mark as well as the classic Mido logo, which has a lot more spirit than the industrial seeming modern interpretation of Mido-ness. I can certainly live without the mesh metal bracelet. The 1960s can keep those.The Commander II watch is 40mm wide in steel with a couple of dial fashions and silver, gray, and black colors. Inside is a Swiss ETA 2836 day/date automatic movement. It seems like some variations of the movement are Chronometer certified. At least the dial retained the unique “Datoday” label on it. The Commander II arrives with a slightly higher-end brother, a new version of the Great Wall watch.I think the Great Wall was initially introduced a year or so ago and like its title implies, is a visual and thematic nod to the Great Wall of China – where lots of Mido watches would be likely sold. For me personally, it has a small edge over the brand new variant of the Commander. To begin with, the Great Wall is somewhat larger at 42m wide, but has a very similar case layout. The steel case has a unique looking bracelet and a more complicated dial. Mido appears to use the same hand layout for the two of the collections, and they both have day/date dials with ETA 2836-2 automatic motions. On the other hand, the moves inside of the Great Wall are COSC Chronometer certified while the Commander II movements aren’t. Do not overlook the neat moments hand on the Great Wall.There are a few Mido Great Wall watches on the market and people seem to actually enjoy them. In case the same holds for the Commander II afterward Mido will be off to a fantastic year. I’d like for them to however concentrate a little more to the West again. I think that the brand could be something intriguing in america. Their rates are pretty reasonable as well. Mido claims that the Commander II watch will be under $1,000 while the Great Wall will probably be between $1,000 – $2,000.

If you are a big Seiko fan, then you probably know that one of the hottest and most sought-after watches of the past couple of months is the limited edition Propsex SRPB009 watch, or more affectionately and simply known as the Blue Lagoon Samurai. Why is this watch so popular? One of the reasons is because the new Blue Lagoon Samurai is based on the original Samurai (SBDA003), which was produced from 2004 and then suddenly discontinued in 2008. It was a good-looking watch and had always been popular among Seiko fans, so its discontinuation left fans puzzled. The other reason is quite simply because it’s a good-looking watch that offers lots of bang for the buck.

3. A Look At Smartwatches In 2017 So Far

BEST FROM: aBlogtoWatch & Friends May 19, 2017 ABTW Round-Ups

Lovers of mechanical watches, I come with bad news – smartwatches are here to stay. But more importantly, I think it is only a matter of when, and not if, it becomes truly mainstream. This year, TAG Heuer reaffirmed its commitment to smartwatches when it announced its second-generation smartwatch – the Connected Modular 45 – while Montblanc also signaled its smartwatch ambitions with its new Summit watch. Here is an overview of the smartwatch scene this year so far and what you can expect in the world of smartwatches.

4. How The High-End Watch Industry Is Robbing Itself Of Relevancy & What To Do About It

BEST FROM: aBlogtoWatch & Friends May 19, 2017 ABTW Round-Ups

If you live in a watch-crazy city like I do, chances are that you will see a couple of watch advertisements every day. But of all the watch advertisements that you see each day, how many actually make sense? That’s a big problem that the watch industry is facing today. Business is bad, but generally speaking, a lot of watch brands do a bad job when it comes to marketing and selling themselves. Of course, there are a couple of brands who do well, but that’s mostly because they have the luxury of a strong heritage and high desirability, but even they will soon find themselves in trouble if they do not appeal to a wider and younger audience. In this article, we discuss some of the problems that watch brands are facing, the mistakes they are making, and also offer some insights and possible solutions.

5. Panerai LAB-ID Luminor 1950 Carbotech 3 Days PAM 700 Watch Hands-On

BEST FROM: aBlogtoWatch & Friends May 19, 2017 ABTW Round-Ups

For me, the most innovative watch to come out of SIHH 2017 was the Panerai LAB-ID Luminor 1950 Carbotech 3 Days, or more simply known as the PAM 700. Why? Because it is an amalgamation of high-tech materials that actually has real-world, practical benefits. The case, for example, is made out of Carbotech, which is extremely light and yet strong. This makes it comfortable to wear and also ultra-resistant to scratches. But most of all, the movement is made of tantalum-based ceramic and the silicon escapement is DLC-coated, which means the watch does not need any kind of lubrication. As a result, Panerai was able to provide a 50-year-long warranty on this watch. 50 years! If that doesn’t impress you, I don’t know what will.

6. Hublot Big Bang Sang Bleu Watch Hands-On

For the hottest Mido watch observing well-known structures and landmarks across the world, the brand has launched the Mido “Launched By Architecture” Limited Edition using a design intended to reference the structure of New York City’s famous Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. The term “inspired by” is frequently used to describe a watch design’s concept, but this limited-edition Mido watch actually puts it directly on the flange ring together with the engraved words “INSPIRED BY ARCHITECTURE.” Some respectable specs including a COSC-certified movement using a long power book must satisfy watch snobs — as a 500-piece limited version, it merely has to appeal to certain groups of individuals that are attracted to its specific subject matter.That could be fans of architecture and design generally or fans of the Guggenheim’s celebrity architect, Frank Lloyd Wright. The lugless layout of the 40mm steel instance (water-resistant to 50m) fits right in with the posh “modernist” theme, and should ensure it is wearable even for thinner wrists. In Mido’s universe, this seems near the Commander II watches or the Mido Commander Icône we lately saw hands-on because of its lack of lugs, but the case itself differs in size, shape, and other layout elements and does not fit neatly into additional Mido collections — although very much remaining on-brand. To link it to the structure of this museum, the inward-sloping instance sides comprise grooves to reference the curved ribbon-like structure of the Guggenheim’s atrium, and the three-dimensional dial design references the framework of the Guggenheim’s domed ceiling (above image). The dial is in an “eggshell white” with a grained texture that ought to be good for legibility, as well as the applied indices (no more lume) are glistening using a satin-finished inner section. I enjoy the hand design ( all are lumed), and especially how the seconds hand counterweight mirrors the shape on the other end. A domed sapphire crystal using anti-reflective coating (that is now something I value greatly) covers the dial, and the display caseback comes with a view of the movement with a customized Mido rotor, blued screws, and Geneva Stripes (sorry, no caseback pictures from Mido for today).

Hublot has a lot of limited edition watches, but most of them are simply tweaks and variations of existing references – new dial colors, new case materials, new straps, that kind of stuff. But as you can see from the photo above, the Big Bang Sang Bleu is an entirely new take on the Big Bang. The case has been dramatically reworked, and the dial is completely unrecognizable from your typical Big Bang watch. Find out what the inspiration is behind this radical Big Bang watch in this article.
