AVI-8, AV-4003-04 Hawker Harrier II

AVIGREEN

I stumbled upon this watch on my internet travels. I haven’t spotted it out being worn, so I am making a judgement just on the photos, but it really caught my eye. I really fancy a green faced watch and have highlighted the Limited edition Breitling Chronospace green faced watch here and also the Alpine Startimer Green faced watch here. Now I am not saying that this one can really keep company with the other two but it does look a handsome watch at a much more affordable price. You can check out the website here http://www.avi-8.co.uk/ but in truth this really tells you very little about this watch company, such as where they are based as a simple starter for ten. So if you have one of these watches or you know more about them please let me know. Meanwhile check this one out, it is on my wich list as of now! Continue reading

Gucci Coupe XL Chronographs

20131013-092219.jpg

Gucci’s XL Quartz Chronograph is the latest addition to the Gucci Coupe collection and it now rolls up in a larger 44mm rounded square case. The watch is inspired by coupe sports cars, so with our JCW MINI Coupe and Opel GT this line of chronographs is right up our street. Gucci’s modern interpretation of vintage style is very definitely a hit with us.

The stainless steel case on the XL Quartz Chronograph is available stainless steel or in black or gray PVD coating. All case variants house a Swiss quartz movement. The timepiece’s increase in size promotes the legibility of the SuperLuminova indices and all its functions. The dial also displays, three subdials and the date at four o’clock.

Each of the XL Quartz Chronograph variants reflect their motifs on the strap and Gucci has created a coordinated look that subtly let’s you know instantly that this watch is Gucci. The stainless steel version boasts a three-link bracelet and the black PVD version utilizes a nylon strap with Gucci’s green-red-green web stripe. The gray PVD version features a blue-gray-blue web-striped nylon strap. Green stripes outline the chronograph pushers and a red stripe decorates the crown.

A sapphire crystal glass completes the detailing.
