Protect the watch crystal
There are also a few features on the PAW2000 that are available on other Casio watches, but I have enjoyed here for the first time. As G-Shock, Pathfinder, and related multifunction Casio digital watches have been around for a while, their engineers have continually refined and added features. Some of these features are things like snooze functions for the alarms. My new favorite is the auto illumination (A.EL) function. It used some type of tilt sensor in the watch that automatically activates the backlight when you tilt your wrist toward you. LCD displays are impossible to read in the dark. Most people are used to pressing a pusher (here located on the front of the watch) or activate the backlight. Now you can do so without using your other hand just by turning your wrist. It is a great and reliable system. Of course the backlight often goes on when you don't necessarily want it to. So when stealth is important, or if it annoys you the function can easily be disabled. Which brings me to two other points. Casio watches are among the most "user customizable" watches out there in terms of the settings, and there is also a bit of a learning curve.
When I first handled Lynx Aqua it was clear to me that this piece is a serious watch. It really shows the heritage of Swedish design and is both modern, funky and utilitarian, as well as classic and timeless in design. It made me think of Bruno Mathssons furniture (Specially The Grasshopper and Anna as pictured) The fluid shape of hard material is the key here. Watch case is both round and soft looking as well as rigid and tough. There's the key to this watch, fluid essence which comes out in firm form. This watch is a bold statement which seems to be yelling "Tool watches want to be elegant too". It's hard to say which came here first, the form or the function, but they both work together amazingly well.
Louis Vuitton watches always feel special. They don't release new watches too often, and when they do, they barely give any information about them - they are also quite rare. They have been playing with the Tambour case for a while, adding new designs and styles all the time. This is likely to be the "highest-end" Louis Vuitton Tambour watch of them all. My favorite is still the Louis Vuitton Tambour Diver watch. Now you might not think of Louis Vuitton as a watch maker. You'd be right in theory, but you'd be missing a major point. The LVMH (Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy) Group owns several important watch brands including Zenith, Tag Heuer, and Hublot. This gives them a bit watch making asset pool to pull from. So in a sense, Louis Vuitton branded watches are not just another fashion watch. While they have been making watches for a little while, and this new Tambour Mystérieuse watch is the first in-house movement for them. Previously they pulled movements from else where. The price of the new watch is very high, almost too optimistically so, but we can get to that in a moment.
Inside the watch is a solid Japanese quartz movement. Nothing you'd have to worry about, pretty much ever unless you need to put a battery in it. The watch is big enough that you can rest it on your desk while you work and use it as a clock. Most people (including myself) who type a lot take off their watches while they work). Just don't be one of those people who forget it on your desk (unless you are at home). There really isn't a lot to elaborate on with a very straight forward and easy to live with watch like this JR1060. You know what it does right away, you don't need to think very hard when using it, and the large, but traditional style of the watch goes with just about every outfit that a brown strap would go with. Price is really reasonable as well at 5 - available direct from Jorg Gray, or one of their authorized dealers.
