Tehnomarine is known for its distinctive look and rugged builds and the Swiss made Hummer example delivers on both counts. The 40mm x 12mm case is crafted in 316L steel, housing the accurate and maintenance free Swiss ETA 251.274 chronograph quartz movement, also delivering quickset date complication at the 4 position. The dial is a true landscape with numerous precisely raised areas creating the polished arablic numerals and frames creating the sundials. A focal point is the small seconds at the 6 being a recreation of the rim of a Hummer, all beneath AR coated genuine sapphire crystal. Presented on white silicon rubber 39mm 8” strap modeled after the tire tread, the finished work is tested to 10 ATM water resistance. MSRP is 2999.99 but reserves yours through TAW, NOT preowned, for just 599.99, shipping included!
From the Technomarine Cruise Ceramic series, this piece delivers both style and functionality. Much of the watch and 22mm 8” bracelet is crafted from solid white ceramic, which in addition to being hypoallergenic is also extremely scratch resistant, lightweight, and colorfast. What is not ceramic is 316L steel, so the overall visual is a beautiful white/silver display on the wrist. Housed within the 40mm x 14mm case (not including screw down crown) is a Swiss quartz 1/10th second chronograph movement with small seconds and quickset date displayed via textured dial. Markers and hands are luminous, protected by genuine sapphire crystal! Tested to 20 ATM water resistance, the finished work lists for $1650.00.
While preparing for Tim's and Michael's trip to Switzerland for the upcoming Baselworld 2018 show, we found very strong indications that Invicta and Invicta owned brands will not be attending this year. While we have reached out to contacts at Invicta for comment, we have not heard back from them on this yet. Since this newsworthy to many of the readers and customers here on Talk About Watches, we did want to present the information that we do have as well as some individual commentary as well. Most importantly, it must be pointed out that not attending is NOT necessarily a bad thing for the brand. But, it is certainly interesting. Check out what we can report to you now and if (or when) we get more information, we will update this posting immediately.
We experienced some unfortunate and unexpected email issues earlier in the week and due to that, we have decided to extend our "Big Game" sales (there are three of them) for a very short time to ensure that everyone is aware of them and has the opportunity to get one or more if they need to be in your collection. Please do have a look to see what is still available and make sure that you act before the count down timer on the page reaches all zeros. To those that were effected by our email issues, we do apologize and are working hard to ensure that we do not experience such issues again in the future.
At this price this piece is an outstanding buy if an unknown brand, given size, sapphire crystal and the movement being a Swiss ETA 2824. But it’s not an unknown! The Royal Marine is a significant sought after series from TechnoMarine! With a captivating asymmetrical 316L steel case, this timepiece takes inspiration from high end contemporary boats. It has a sapphire crystal, of course, and is presented on a very high end and supple silicone strap. Additionally, a vertical texture on a soft white dial with applied markers and a blue tinted unidirectional bezel. At only $550.00, this is an absolute steal on a remarkable wristwatch!
In 1998 a new brand created by a diver in southern France hit the market and the naysayers pounced. No one would pay 3k to 4k for diamonds in steel on a jelly strap. A year later the fans had spoken, the naysayers were silent, and the face of the sport watch had been changed. TechnoMarine was a hit. This piece is of course a current build. 40mm case of 316L steel is presented on the legendary TM silicone strap. The case houses a Miyota OS60 chronograph movement and is tested to 200M dive watch water resistance. From day one TechnoMarine was known for diamonds and this piece delivers there as well. The mother of pearl dial features frames which have been layered in rose gold around the subdials as well as markers and selected numbers that have been filled with INDIVIDUALLY HANDSET DIAMONDS IN CROWN SETTINGS. The finished work lists for $1695.00. You can have one now in the original factory packaging for just $299.99, shipping included!
