Illumination for the Ladies

Traser has a line of watches for women! Traser manufactures Swiss made watches with trigalight® technology. Trigalight® is a self-activated self-powered light source. Traser states on it site that the watches’ luminosity is 100 times better than in other watches without the technology, and that the luminosity will last twenty years, or more.

At 44mm, the large-faced watches are designed with women in mind, and the company claims they are the easiest watches to read. The lume on the ladies’ watches even matches the color scheme of the watches–pink watches shine with pink Trigalight®, and blue watches shine with blue Trigalight®! This is a pretty neat trick, and one I have not been seen before.

Just something new and fun!

Ceramic Watches

There is something about a watch made from ceramic. The cool, smooth feel is truly unique. My first ceramic watch is an Invicta Women’s Pro Diver Collection Ceramic Two-Tone Watch in black and white. Like Invicta’s Lady Abyss Diver, it is a typical smaller-faced dive watch, with a simple design.

The face of the Pro Diver Ceramic has a subtle pattern to it that does not distract so much as to prevent the wearer from seeing the hands clearly. The hands are just wide enough to make them very easy to read, and are painted with Tritnite® luminous paint, as are the hourly indices. A magnifier above the date window makes the date hard to miss on this watch. The bezel is unidirectional, bearing larger dot, dash, and arabic numbers than those on the face. The crystal is sapphire-coated and scratch-resistant. It is a true dive watch, with a screw-down crown and water resistance to 200 meters (660 feet)

The sharp, two-toned band of this watch is ceramic The band has some play in the links, but not enough to make it feel loose or flimsy. The push-button clasp is tight and secure. The black of the case and band is not a true black. It is closer to the color of hematite, but is still quite pretty against the white center stripe on the band. Unlike many technical looking dive watches, it is a stylish watch that can be worn in most casual or dressy situations. The feel and design is simple, but beautiful.

The Invicta Women’s Pro Diver Collection Ceramic Two-Tone Watch comes in blue and white, and brown and white, along with the black and white. As with all other Invicta watches, it is available at many Online retailers, as well as many brick-and-mortar locations.

Spring has Sprung!

Spring is here. The sun is shining, the flowers are blooming, and pens are in the air. Well, not really.

The Namiki Nippon Art Flower Basket Fountain Pen

However, if you really want to celebrate spring with a pen, then the Namiki Nippon Art Flower Basket fountain pen is one way to do it. The Nippon Art Pen uses the beauty of the hira-maki-e technique against a beautiful black lacquer background. The flower basket design displays images of several flowers native to Asia. The fountain pen comes with a 14K gold nib, available in fine or medium. The pen comes in a traditional-style wood gift box from the Orient. This pen is available at many fine pen retailers, and would add functional beauty to any collection.


There are a lot of people who wear their watches on the side of their wrists. My father is one of them. He has a small flat spot on the side of his wrist, that his watch rests on perfectly. Not many watches fit this spot on his wrist, so he is picky about his watches. He only has a few, and he wears them because they feel comfortable on that spot on his wrist.

Side Watch manufactures watches for people like him–its watches are designed to be worn on the side of the wrist. Side Watch offers nine styles of watches, ranging from a simple fun-faced watch, to a chronograph with gems around the bezel. With tons of colors and faces to choose from, Side Watch may just be the perfect watch for side-wrist wearers!

A New Line From Seiko…But No Women’s Models!

At Baselworld 2009, Japanese watch manufacturer Seiko introduced its new line of watches. The International Ananta line incorporates some of the Seiko technology that was perviously available only in Japan. There are five styles available, including some spring drive models. However, there are no women’s models! All of the great technology that Seiko offers, and not one women’s model in the new line.
