JeanRichard even dedicated one of the Terrascope Aluminum pieces as an award in the brand's support of the Steve Nash Foundation Showdown event in New York City. Steve Nash's foundation is designed to support children's causes and the "Showdown" is a soccer match make up of professional soccer and NBA basketball players (Steve Nash is currently a player on the Los Angeles Lakers basketball team). So there is a "kid connection" right there with the watch.

Luminox calls the 3050 series the Navy SEAL Colormark collection because in addition to the black and white dials, there are other colors available. Though for us, the purest and most effective designs are still the black and white models. Still in a polycarbonate plastic case, the 3050 (especially the ref. A.3051) is among the brand's top sellers. Later Luminox released the Steel Colormark collection within the 3150 range. This model with a 44mm wide case is the 3152 (ref. A.3152) with a steel bracelet to match the steel case. Though a similar version with a rubber bracelet is available– which is possibly better for actual "active use" given the more snug fit and lighter weight.
Artya suggests that it can be used for personal defense (really not sure how), to cut seat belts and ropes (that makes a bit more sense), and of course to open letters (I can see people doing that daily). Further, as odd self-defense items go, this is by no means the most strange that exists out there. In any event, this is weird and funny, and also kinda cool. As a man who likes to be prepared, I can't complain about a hidden utility knife where there was none before. I wonder who will take this idea even further. artya.com

On top of that dial you've got what's probably my favorite bit of the watch - a whole lot of applied bits and pieces. The minute ring is applied on top (along with it's indices), as are the large lume-filled numerals. This gives some lovely dimension to the dial, meaning that light is going to play along the face of this watch in some interesting ways.
Rolex labs are as diverse as they are amazing. Perhaps the most visually interesting is the chemistry lab. Full of beakers and tubes that carry liquids and gases, the Rolex chemistry lab is full of highly trained scientists. What is it mostly used for? Well one thing that Rolex stated is that the lab is used for developing and researching oils and lubricants that they use in machines during the manufacturing process.
For our money, the Bathyscaphe Flyback is best on the sailcloth strap or the high-quality nato. For boney wrists like mine, I'd recommend the sailcloth option as it was instantly comfortable and kept the head of the Bathyscaphe in an ideal and flat position.
Needless to say, that one-of-a-kind pocket watch was the first signed F.P. Journe, and kicked off the journey that brought us the eponymous watch company in 1991. To mark the occasion of thirty years having passed since the first watch came to fruition, F.P. Journe has created a new wristwatch, the Historical Anniversary Tourbillon.
