With over a quarter of a million dollars pledged by more than 550 backers, the LIV GX1-A Swiss Automatic Watch is proving to be the most sought out Swiss watch on Kickstarter yet. Within 34 minutes of launching the watch, the entire project was fully funded on Kickstarter, replacing the LIV Genesis X1 Chronograph as the most backed Swiss Watch Project on Kickstarter.

The LIV Genesis X1 Automatic boasts the quality and craftsmanship of a Swiss watch, yet proves to not be compromised by the affordable price tag. With the consumers in mind, the Brooklyn-based brand has created a watch unrivalled in its’ ability to couple both the meticulous detail of a high quality Swiss-made automatic watch with the accessible price. Starting at $390 on Kickstarter, the watch is the only Swiss Automatic watch ever launched on Kickstarter under $500.

The rugged stainless steel casing and IP coating, creates an overall tough, yet aesthetically beautiful appearance.

Written by watch reviewer. Posted in More News, Philip Stein

It’s official!

The team at BuzzAboutWatches has nominated the Fruitz Watermelon Watch as the Coolest Holiday Watch 2011.

The three reasons attributed to the nomination are as follows:

  • Reason #1:
    The colors – a gorgeous green strap and faded red dial will make you smile every time you put this cool piece on.

 

  • Reason #2:
    The Natural Frequency Technology embedded in the watch will keep you cool and calm this holiday season, which could get stressful with all that family around! Also perfect for keeping you relaxed during stressful flights, and prevent jet lag if you’re flying far.

 

  • Reason #3:
    They are super comfortable to wear. The silicon strap and stainless steel case feel cool on your wrist – no need to worry about sweating it up in this watch.

 

This is not the first time that the Fruitz Watermelon has received a nomination of this type. Globes identified the Fruitz watermelon as the 2011 Summer watch, and JP featured this fun watch for summer beach fashion this year as well. Last year, in June 2010, ABC also showcased the Watermelon Fruitz (see below).

So congratulations to Fruitz watches, and Happy Holidays 2011 to you all!

Movado Hatman Rants about Jews and Israel

Written by watch reviewer. Posted in Movado, News

This past Saturday, a New York City Occupy Wall Street Protestor blamed the Jews and Israel for many US and global issues. When Joe Schoffstall of MRCTV asked a man in a Movado cap for his thoughts on Israel, the madman went on a long rant. How many factual flaws can you find in his long, repetitive, loud, aggressive, and bombastic speech? I found at least 10.

According to the Movado madman:

“Israel is white Eastern European who has preserved and occupied Arab land and they have displaced indigenous, Palestinian people at gunpoint.  When Israel was founded in 1948, in 1949 Israel secretly began working on an atomic nuclear program to wipe out her neighbors.  So the hatred of the Arabs for Israel is understandable. When someone moves on your block, and when they move on the block the very next day they work on weapons of mass destruction to eliminate the neighbors, that would be grounds for justifiable hatred.”

And more…

“Jews control Wall Street. Google ‘Jewish Billionaires,’ Google ‘Jews in the Federal Reserve Bank,’ Google ‘Jews on Wall Street,’ the American finances are controlled by the Jews, Wall Street, the media, the legal profession; Jewish money is the engine in politics, Jews give more money to both the democrat party and the republican party; they also lead the path when it comes to white collar crime. The Jews commit more white collar crime than any other ethnic group on the earth, and they go unprosecuted because they can buy their way out of it, when the Jew gets caught they will pay a civil penalty. So in America, Jews commit more white collar crime; whenever there’s a billion dollar fraud, there’s a Jew involved – and they go unprosecuted or under prosecuted.  Millions of people are suffering because of what the Jews did on Wall Street.

And the Movado hatman goes on…

When it comes to Israel, also, we don’t talk about the fact that Israel also introduced weapons of mass destruction in the Middle East. Currently Israel has illegal nuclear weapons, illegal chemical weapons, and illegal biological weapons. Israel intends on wiping out the Middle East so that Israel can wipe out its borders. Why would Israel need 500 nuclear weapons? Google it. Google ‘Israel has 500 nuclear weapons’ –  more nuclear weapons than Great Britain at this time!  So Israel is a very bad neighbor. Who wants to live next to a neighbor that has nuclear, biological and chemical weapons that could wipe out the entire world?
And the United States is afraid of Israel, all the congressman, all the senators are beholden to Jewish money. Because of Jewish money, the republican party and the democrat party allow Israel to go unchecked.”

Movado's not-so-great brand exposure

So the Movado Madman may not be the best Movado ambassador, but the video of his rant has become a global hit. He definitely scores some points for brand exposure.

Hey, I love Movado watches, so I do feel kind of bad that this fool is wearing their hat.  So, Movado, I will do this for you:  Check out the real Movado ambassadors on the Movado website: http://www.movado.com/world-of-movado/ambassadors/.  Oh, and if you need a new watch (classy Movado watches make great Christmas gifts), click on this link for amazing deals on Movado watches.  Truth be told, WatchesOnNet really has the best online prices (huge savings off retail prices) on authentic Movado watches – take it from me, I’ve done my research.

Reuben Ezekiel, founder and owner of Fountains Jewelers in Florida, is assisting people during these tough times by offering to buy quality pre-owned timepieces at top dollar. Reuben Ezekiel has been buying and selling fine jewelry since 1982. Fountains Jewelers currently has two locations: Fountains Jewelers in Plantation and the newly opened Fountains Jewelers & Estate Buyers in Hallandale Beach.

Having proudly served local communities for over 20 years, Fountains Jewelers has earned itself a reputation of honesty and integrity, and staff members are known to be knowledgeable in the field of luxury timepieces. Watches of significant cash value include platinum and pink or rose gold watches. Most desirable of all are complicated watches, which carry the highest cash values.

Fountains Jewelers love to come across old railroad and pocket watches, and are also highly interested in women’s watches made from platinum or gold, or set with diamonds.

Rueben Ezekiel pays cash for watches on the spot, so that there is no waiting time, which is a welcome blessing to many during the current economic climate.

Movado Watches Released that Men are Loving

Written by watch reviewer. Posted in Movado, Watch Brands

If you find yourself drawn to the aesthetic quality of Movado watches, you are not alone. A perennial favorite among the upper echelons of New York’s artistic community, Movado’s Museum Watch has won numerous accolades, even making its way into the Museum of Modern Art’s permanent collection.

While the classic Movado watch is best known for its minimalism, the company has recently released an exciting collection of luxury sports watches. Men will appreciate the Movado 800 Series, with its round stainless steel case, Arabic chapter numerals, and rotating bezel. Including both a tachometer and chronograph dial, this Movado watch is water resistant up to 200 meters and capable of calculating elapsed time and precise speed measurements.

Another popular Movado watch for men is the SE Sports Edition Chronograph, with its casual stitched blue denim dial. The hand indicators are silver-toned, which matches the luminous silver dot at the 12 o’clock hour.

If you are a Movado watch connoisseur, a fanciful take on the classic Museum watch is another option. Check out the elegant Men’s Elliptica with a black alligator strap and rectangular dial. It may not be as sporty as the 800 Series and SE, but it is an exquisite men’s timepiece, with all the hallmarks of a classic Movado watch.
