There is an endless debate among watch lovers that stems from our cultural obsession to name a ‘best of’ anything or to label something as the ‘ultimate’ expression of whatever. We like the greatest example of this and the ultimate example of that. We like wood wedding rings because they are beautiful, eco-friendly, and perhaps the ultimate expression of socially-responsible consumer consumption you can put on your finger. Speaking of which brings us to perhaps the most defensible, socially-responsible choice among luxury watches—The Omega Speedmaster Professional. One could argue that any watch that was the first watch worn on the Moon and that is still flight qualified by NASA is no mere rich man or woman’s bauble. (Worth noting: the Speedmaster is still the only watch qualified for EVA, or extra-vehicular activity—space walking.) It’s an icon of performance, the perfect example of function over form. It may be the ultimate watch.
An Incomparable History
Every watch collector knows the Speedmaster bested stiff competition (including Rolex) in a series of grueling NASA tests in the mid-1960s to become the standard issue astronaut chronograph watch. (A chronograph is a watch with a stopwatch function.) Not as well known today is NASA caught a lot of Congressional flack for making such an “unpatriotic” choice. American watch companies weren’t pleased to see a Swiss watch on the wrist of Apollo 11’s Buzz Aldrin as he walked around on the surface of the Moon in 1969. Neil Armstrong was the first man to Moon walk, but his Speedmaster stayed in the Lunar Module as a backup timing device for the craft’s electronic computer clocks. That was a wise precaution as Apollo 13 astronauts found out several years later. They were forced to use a Speedmaster to time their re-entry to Earth after an epic electronics failure. What of the Congressional pressure on NASA? The Speedmaster prevailed in a second round of testing in 1972, too.
The Speedmaster Professional Today
Happily, you can still buy a nearly identical-to-the-original Moon watch Speedmaster, reference 3570.50, aka “The Moon Watch.” The Moon Watch is still manual wind and still has a hesalite (high-tech plastic) crystal. The hesalite crystal makes sense for a hard-use watch. Although it might scratch rather easily (the scratches are easily polished out), it is shatter proof—unlike the sapphire crystals found on other high-end watches. This is a great example of the Speedmaster being a “function over form” watch. NASA didn’t pick it because it was pretty. It’s just a nice coincidence that it is also very handsome. Collectors love the fact you can buy a watch today that looks basically identical to the one sold in 1969. It’s an instant retro watch. It is also perhaps one of the best “bang for the buck” high-end watches available. Pre-owned examples are plentiful and can often be had for very, very attractive prices. Add it all up, and it’s easy to see why for many aficionados, the Speedmaster remains the ultimate watch. If you don’t believe us, just ask NASA.

Relationships come and go and come and go until finally one comes and stays. A love like this is rare and to be cherished and it should be nurtured with reminders for its entire existence. This often seems like a really hard thing to do, but it isn’t. It’s only hard to do well. Don’t fear, future gift givers and romantics, advice is on the way! If you are fortunate enough to either have the job you want or be on track for it, there is nothing more classic, more precise and more sexy than a Rolex watch. Just saying it out loud conjures images of Caribbean beach walks, caviar and cruises. However there’s something that separates a Rolex from near every other top shelf gift. Each one is a piece of art. Each one is constructed with nearly atomic precision to be marveled at, not merely appreciated. To give someone a Rolex is to say that are a cut above the rest. That person isn’t just special, he’s perfect. She’s the love of your life.
Rolex watches are designed for both men and women and they instill confidence and class in whoever is blessed enough to wear one. Or rather, to be worn be one. Some people say that when a person wears a Rolex, the Rolex enters the room first. Not only is Rolex the zenith in watches around the world, but the company takes their clients as seriously as you take your child’s educations. You can always contact a rolex watch repairs in order to be assured the best service. They have many rolex repair centers throughout the world and you will always be treated with respect.
If going the timepiece route isn’t for you and does not strike inspiration in your gift giving loins, there are countless other top shelf ways to assist you in saying those cherished three words. An African safari is the Rolex of trips and it’s something that everyone deserves to experience though few people do. They say that humans originated in Africa and that there’s an inherent familiarity and comfort with the landscape. Take your loved one to where it all began, literally, about two million years ago and share in the experience of a lifetime visiting lions, not tigers or bears, in their natural habitat.
Maybe you want to try something close to home, and have a phobia of something perfect on your wrist. Maybe you just don’t have the time in the big old rat race of a world. Can you imagine anything easier, more fun, and intimate than a five star hotel room with five star hotel room service? I can’t. Take your loved one to the Ritz-Carlton or the Four Season. Use your trusty internet and find out which local hotels have the best massages and spa packages. Remember, you work hard, but you work to live the kind of life you want. And you want to show people you love them in the way that feels right to you. Don’t be shy and do a little research, cause a little work now can go a long way when it counts.

I think, I needed to move forward too for me to adopt and apply for myself what are these hippiest finds can made for us which these usual fashion enthusiast are getting crazed today.
Recently, the brand called Ann Demeulmeester , first time to heard it though, had got their jewellery collection released for the spring summer 2014. Actually, brands and label are used to released their collection ahead time for them to see on how does these prospect consumers can react with their pieces so that they can fix those minimal glitches as if happened they have so. Yeah! that’s how the fashion industry runs these days.
As I’ve heard, Ann Demeulmeester selling their each jewellery for $500 to $800 as they states on their recent press release. On my opinion, the ranging prices are quite high and expensive indeed for just an simply jewelry like what you are seeing on the top photos. I hope the brand will consider to have an very economical prices that in to high range of price on each jewelry they have for us this coming summer season 2014.
