Rolex Daytona Wristwatch at LOST

Lost is the American serial drama television series that follows the lives of plane crash survivors on a mysterious tropical island, after a commercial passenger jet flying between Sydney and Los Angeles crashes somewhere in the South Pacific.

Season 6 premiered on February 2, 2010, at its new timeslot of Tuesdays at 9:00 pm in the US and Canada and will feature 18 episodes. The sixth season follows two timelines, each an outcome of the detonation of a hydrogen bomb in the previous season finale.

Jin and Sun (Daniel Dae Kim and Yunjin Kim) on Lost

One of the series’ main characters, Jin-Soo Kwon, was given, at the beginning of the series, two identical Rolex Wristwatches; two Rolex Daytona.

Two identical gold Rolex watches were given to Jin by Mr. Paik to deliver to business associates in Sydney, Australia and Los Angeles, California. Jin delivered the first one, but crashed on the Island before he could deliver the second one.

Michael found the remaining watch on the beach and decided to wear it. When Jin saw this, he attacked Michael. After Sun explained to Michael why Jin acted the way he did, Michael gave the watch back to him. After the second raft was launched, Jin returned the watch to Michael.

After returning to New York, Michael pawned the watch at Gus’ Pawn Shop in exchange for a revolver in an attempt to take his life. Gus noticed the watch’s Korean inscription: “Congratulations… mutual cooperation… business development… Mr. Paik”

Rolex watches are popularly regarded as status symbols and BusinessWeek magazine ranks Rolex #71 on its 2007 annual list of the 100 most valuable global brands. Rolex is also the largest single luxury watch brand by far, producing about 2,000 watches per day

There are two series of the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona. The original series, produced in small quantities from the early 1960s to the later 1980s, has a four-digits model or reference number, for example the reference 6263. This original series eventually became iconic[vague] but in very short supply in the early 1990s, which led to a second series to meet demand. The second series has a six-digit reference number, for example reference 116520. The new six-digit Daytonas are certified, self-winding chronometers with chronograph functions. Rolex was, and remains today, a sponsor of the 24 Hours of Daytona race at the time, and named its chronograph watch after that famous race.

Due to its limited production and iconic status, the four digit series Rolex Cosmograph Daytona is considered a rare watch to own.

Breitling News – AVENGER SEAWOLF CHRONO BLACKSTEEL LIMITED EDITION

A special version of the Avenger Seawolf Chrono – the only chronograph that is watertight and fully operational at a depth of 1,000 meters (3,300 ft) – the new Blacksteel limited edition is distinguished by its unconventional look matching its exceptional performances.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

Black is the keynote here, variously interpreted in the steel case subjected to an ultra-resistant carbon-based treatment; the unidirectional rotating bezel; the large screw-locked crown and non-slip pushpieces; and on the dial base creating a striking backdrop for the white luminescent hands, hour markers and red-rimmed counters. Its original, technical and powerful appearance makes the Avenger Seawolf Chrono Blacksteel limited edition an unmistakable standout model among diver’s watches. But its greatest feat is hidden inside its case, thanks to its magnetic pushpiece system. This exclusive Breitling patented device serves to activate the controls through the metal of the case, without any direct mechanical contact. This means that whereas most chronographs cannot be used when diving, the Avenger Seawolf Chrono is the only instrument of this type to be watertight and fully operational at a record depth of 1,000 meters (3,300 ft). To accompany professionals to great depths in complete security, this extreme chronograph has been equipped with a decompression valve and a glareproofed sapphire crystal guaranteeing optimal readability in all circumstances. Its SuperQuartz™ caliber – also exclusive to Breitling – ensures a level of accuracy ten times superior to that of standard quartz movements, enabling it to measure times to within 1/10th of a second complete with split-time indications. The Avenger Seawolf Chrono Blacksteel, issued in a 2,000-piece worldwide limited edition, is available on a – naturally black – Diver Pro rubber strap or on a perforated Ocean Racer strap. In a nod to Breitling’s special ties with aviation, its inner bezel ring is adorned with a windrose serving to memorize a course – both underwater or in the air.

Back in ’74, the Silverstone timepiece featured the Chronomatic Calibre 11, the first automatic self-winding chronograph ever made.

For its re-issue, Silverstone is now powered by an updated version of the Calibre 11 with Dubois-Depraz module.

Stainless steel pushbuttons at 2 and 4 o’clock, a hand-applied date window at 6 o’clock and curved, sapphire crystal with double anti-reflective treatment complete the watch’s look.

Apple CEO, Steve Jobs, unveiled the Apple iPad device

(Apple CEO Steve Jobs unveiled the Apple iPad, a $499 device for surfing the Web, reading e-books, watching movies and more)

Apple finally announced its iPad tablet computer last week, a magical, revolutionary and ambitiious product which price is just unbelievable.

iPad keyboard: a huge and bulky version of the iPhone keyboard, but with much more room between keys making easier and faster writing quick text, such as e-mails or chatting. It will also work with Bluetooth keyboards and, also, Apple will sell a charging dock with a built-in keyboard, even the on-screen one is more than enough to work and write.

It’s software: iPad will virtually run all iPhone applications without modification, meaning it’ll work with more than 150,000 programs on the day it ships.
Even though it doesn’t feature a camera or support for Adobe’s Flash technology and only Apple’s programs can run in the background (making possible listening to music while browsing the Web) and all applications run only in full-screen mode, they are not enough reasons for not giving iPad a try. Even though it comes with a splendid photo viewer, it doesn’t have a USB port or memory-card slot, there’s no way to print from the device.
What about price? Even it was expected to run $1,000 or so, iPad starts at $499 for the version with 16GB of solid-state storage and no 3G broadband, and tops out at $829 for one with 64GB of storage and AT&T 3G. iPad’s most impressive thing is that Apple came up with a user interface optimized for a touch-centric, no-keyboard computer.
Comparing to netbooks, the ones that have bought one in the past as a secondary computer will buy an iPad instead, specially if they’re primarily interested in consuming music, movies, e-books and Web pages.
Apple announced a second-generation iPad in 2011 that fixes most of the biggest gripes and packs more features at a better price.
