While I am not the type of guy who is that interested in vintage style watches, there are a lot of excellent exceptions such as the newer Breitling Transocean. When Breitling shared this piece with me I immediately liked it. Sure it is a retro-type piece, but ti is not a watch that is overtly "retro." I would rather suggest it is a traditionally styled watch - something that has a more timeless quality than looking as though it is stuck in a past era.

When I first saw this Piaget watch almost a year ago it was safely put away behind glass, teasing me with its 'no-so-thin' charms. At 43mm wide and just 5.25mm thick, this is a dream come true for people who want a stately looking watch in diameter, but also one that offers an extremely thin profile on the wrist. So thin in fact, that this watch holds the record for being the thinnest automatic watch in the world.

The Snowmobile Adventure watch contains a Swiss ETA Valjoux 7750 automatic chronograph. Not an exclusive movement by any means, but implement about as nicely as I have ever seen in this watch. The movement is polished up nicely and the engraved black Nubeo rotor is a thing of beauty. This watch really isn't about some exclusive in-house movement. Rather this watch is about exclusive everything else. I've never seen anyone else have a case that even looks close to this. It is so interesting and unique that there are far more fake Nubeo Jellyfish watches out there than real ones.

Seiko was there with their usual bevy of educational materials. Charts, trays, and a live watch maker from Japan to show everything from how cases are polished to what it looks like when assembling a Spring Drive movement. A key treat for Seiko lovers was the personal autograph received by the watch maker himself on new watches they bought (most people wanted him to sign the box, not the watch).

Inside the three-hand model is a relatively simple Swiss ETA 2824-2 automatic movement. They decorated it to look quite snazzy. The chronograph has a newer ETA A05.H31 that has 54 hours of power reserve, and some other nice features. This would be the version I would opt for - especially since the case size is a bit larger.

Signalman refers to a lighthouse. There is actually an engraving of one on the rear of the watch. The shape of the case as I recall is based on a special light used in a powerful lighthouse in England. The dial of the Signalman pieces are well done, and I think Giles spent due time polishing the design. Hands are a good length and it is very legible. There is applied SuperLumiNova for lume.

Attached to the watch is a black rubber strap that is given an alligator print. You don't see that too often, but it works pretty well for the theme. Overall this is one of the most handsome Raymond Weil Nabucco watches from the last few years. If you like the idea of it then this would be one to consider. Price is ,500 for the reference 7800- TIR-00207 model.

Montana Watch Company puts a good look on the face of American crafts. As a watch maker I feel they add nicely to the home-grown offerings we have here in the US - and I don't think anyone will complain about their use of Swiss movements.

The LCD screen is one of those special negative ones with an extremely crisp display and rounded numerals. This is about as good as monochromatic LCD screens get. Features in the watch are plentiful and operated but a scroll wheel that you can also press like a button. You get the time, alarms, chronograph, count-down timer, calendar, and all the stuff that is pretty much the standard that Casio set like a decade ago. All in a much sexier package that makes me want to jump into 2001: A Space Odyssey and hang with HAL. My favorite feature "automatic backlight control to prevent over-use." "Sparc, please activate backlight." "I can't do that Ariel." The feature that makes all of that sounds more plausible, "motion-sensor to monitor watch movements" (and your movements!).

It is the end of the year and you people are entitled to your lists, round-ups, and best-ofs. I am not a man of superlatives - so please stop asking me what my favorite watch brand, model, or food is. We thankfully live in a world were it is not necessary to choose favorites, and sampling is encouraged (my horological polyamory will continue unscathed). Having said that, I've chosen ten of the most desirable, interesting, or just plain cool watches of 2011 covered here on Check them out below is no particular order:

The steel case is 40mm wide, making it a medium-sized watches. The case is water resistant to 100 meters and has a sapphire crystal. The overall design helps bridge the gadget and sport watch look together pretty well. This is a function-oriented watch and I like that Hamilton is still keen on making a lot of these pieces. Not having played with the piece myself yet I can't comment on all the functions or its easy of use.

As you can see while the case is relatively simple, other elements of the watch have a more complex look. This includes the chronograph pushers as well as the dial. The best watches often choose either a complex case or complex dial - both can leave a watch looking too boring or alternatively too busy and cluttered. Though there are of course plenty of exceptions.
