Since 1986, Tag Heuer has been partnering with Formula1 racing to bring to the world its entry-level sports watch. Powered by quartz movement, the Formula1 series can be somewhat said to be less of a watch than popular models from the Tag Heuer lines such as the Carreras and Monacos. But it didn't stop the Formula1 series from being unsuccessful. In fact, it is one of the most recognizable watches from Tag Heuer, and it had just gotten a new look. What you're seeing here is the 2012 edition of the Tag Heuer Formula1 line.
From the initial look of things, Tag Heuer seems to be on the right direction with its designs. Staying true with the originals, adding a touch of elegance without comprising the Formula1 look. Given the wide arrays of models to choose from the previous Formula1 Series, the 2012 kept things a bit more conservative and focused. To keep things in perspectives, you are given three different models to choose from, the standard watch, the chronograph, and the alarm function. Personally, I preferred the alarm function.
All models are water resistant of up to 200 meters and are powered by RONDA quartz movements rather than ETA. Price starts at around 1,200 CHF (approximately $1,200). They will be hitting the stores pretty soon, be sure to check out your nearest authorized dealers this month for the new Formula1 watches. In the meantime, I leave you with these photos for your perusal.
A week left until the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH 2012
), and the famous watch manufacturer - Jaeger-LeCoultre
has been going off the charts . It is official! Jaeger-LeCoultre has just unveiled a followup to 2011's most successful Dive Watch, the Memovox Tribute to Deep Sea
. Behold the Jaeger-LeCoultre Deep Sea Vintage Chronograph, the folks over at Purists
got an exclusive preview of this monster of a chronograph dive watch. This 40.5 mm diameter watch runs on Jaeger's own in-house automatic movement Calibre 751G, that houses the chronograph counters for hours and minutes at the 9 and 3 o'clock position along with its central seconds hand. The case is made out of steel with a plexi watch glass, in matte black dial, and tropic superluminova hands that is water resistant up to 10 bars with 65 hour power reserve. Besides the iconic look of the watch, the piece also stayed true to its heritage from Jaeger's Deep Sea line by strapping it with the same embossed calf skin leather strap. The entire piece is a thing of beauty! Rarely would you see a dive watch complicated with one of the most coveted complication in a wrist watch - a chronograph. Whether you're fan of Deep Sea or not, you have to admit that this thing is a clear winner for any dive fans!
No price has yet been announced but this piece here will not be a limited edition, whether that is a good thing or not depends entirely on how you view watch collecting.

For Fall 2012 Red Wing and Nigel Cabourn will present their first collaboration ever. The Munson boot includes a strong attention to both detail and overall quality. The most prominent feature of the Munson is the shape of its toe, which is built to follow the line of the tips of the toes. The leather used is an oiled roughout leather used with the flesh side facing out. Switching the direction of the leather ensures that even if the rough exterior is scratched, the grain will remain unbroken, which results in superior waterproofing. Other features include army green Harris tweed lining, deep green thick leather shoelaces and matching eyelets. The boot comes in two colors of light-brown Hawthorne Muleskinner and the darker Chocolate Muleskinner starting late this year.
For Spring/Summer 2012, the good folks at Visvim decided to give the PATRICIAN-FOLK a linerless silhouette using a smooth, yet perforated cowhide leather upper which resembles a steel plate pattern, sitting atop a custom red brick vibram sole.
