About these measurements: Looking at the Bell & Ross Watches Canada Replica BR 03-92 Diver on the wrist, an individual may not guess that it measures just 42mm wide. It might be a bizarre or subjective thing to say, but I’d describe the Bell & Ross BR 03-92 Diver as sporting much more like a 44mm-wide watch. Square instances are going to wear bigger than their measurements would imply — if you are familiar with watch measurements and have a habit of imagining how a watch might fit you based on pictures and specs before seeing it in person. Perhaps a corner-to-corner measurement is a great means of assessing the size of a square eye since that may better represent how much wrist property it occupies. I truly made an attempt to portray in some of the photos how well it wears on my 6.5″ (17cm) wrist — though I probably couldn’t pull off even a millimeter larger.Dive watches tend to be chunky, and water-resistance of 300m is more or less standard nowadays for “professional dive watches” — even though some manufacturers get away with calling a 100m water-resistant watch a diver, and many others take it much farther to 1000m and more (Bell & Ross’ Hydromax in 1997 was rated into no less than 11,100m). Water-resistance is frequently understood by consumers as a shorthand for or way of quantifying general durability. The Bell & Ross BR 03-92 Diver is graded to 300m and matches all of the other ISO dive watch specifications, and also the brand emphasizes how those specifications determined the design.
aBlogtoWatch is now the official Watch Media Partner of The Couture Show. Couture (@by_couture) is a high-end watch and jewelry trade show event that takes place each year in Las Vegas during the same time as the JCK event, which this year will be on May 29 – June 2, 2014. aBlogtoWatch will be bringing you exciting live watch coverage of the event from the Wynn Hotel.
For our first year with Couture, we will be making some changes to how the event is covered. That means we’ll place more of an emphasis on social media and internet coverage, in order to not only display the new watches brands are displaying, but also to help you, the consumer, feel like you are there with us. Couture is a private, industry-only event not open to the general public, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be a part of it with us.
In future years we have many more ideas we will hopefully try to implement, but we and Couture are excited to bring you news, views, and fun from the show, Couture 2014. To follow along, stick around here at aBlogtoWatch, and of course be a part of our social media coverage on Instagram, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and more. Don’t forget to comment on or follow #Couture2014.
Want more? You have an opportunity to be part of the coverage by sending aBlogtoWatch your questions, opinions, suggestions, or to generally communicate with us during the show. The aBlogtoWatch team will be roaming the Couture show and meeting with brands mostly on May 30th and May 31st, 2014. Some of the watch brands showing at the Couture 2014 show are:
- Bell & Ross
- David Yurman
- Ernst Benz
- Philip Stein
- TW Steel
- and more…
This list will continue to grow as we work with Couture to develop the watch category at the show which has traditionally specialized in fine jewelry brands. We look forward to interacting with the aBlogtoWatch audience when covering the show and for all things “watches in the real world.” See you in Las Vegas.
