Remember that putting the lever and chadburn back in the middle position will always return the watch to the correct time. Why does the Horus Ultramarinum do this? As a novelty. To time travel, or to make it so that you can look at your watch and say "look at the time. I gotta go," more often and it look later than it is. Trust me, this is a more useful, useless novelty than some I have seen (that means you Franck Muller Secret Hours watch). It is kind of cool as well. Oh, and The Marine watch is water resistant to 200 meters, which is actually not bad given this type of watch. Good if your luxury sailing vessel capsizes. Down with the ship, does not need to mean down with your investment.
The winner of the watch was Dennis K. from New Jersey. He was chosen truly at random. I gave each entrant a number and then used this random number generator that picks a number between two values (1 - 100 for example). Between the three choices Dennis chose the Dievas Zeta Pro Phantom, which has the all black dial (as opposed to red or yellow). The Professional watches all have black PVD applied to them, and each Dievas Zeta watch is an automatic. It is a good look as you can see. Here are some thoughts from the winner about the watch:
The Swatch Automatic Chrono models comes with metal, rubber, or leather straps. The Silver Class model has a metal bracelet that is comfy to wear and looks pretty nice. It has a certain relaxed charm to it. Swatch is able to apply a brushed and polished finish to the large links giving them a more dynamic look. I further had a very easy time sizing the bracelet that uses torsion pins. The deployment clasp has micro adjusts as well for precise fitting - something I more or less expect to be in bracelets, but get pissed when they are not.

Either way - the Dior Christal Mystérieuse is an amazing timepiece to behold. And it's an interesting progression into horlogerie, to create a watch that is visually striking - but in truth, is not exactly functional as an easily readable timepiece.
If you are interesting in maybe getting one of these downers they are not expensive at 5. The watch is not too big at 35mm wide, and a long 46mm tall. The case is in steel, and has those nice long, curved lugs. Likely a mineral crystal with 50 meters of water resistance and a quartz movement inside. It comes with a nice box and a black leather strap with contrast white stitching. I must admit that the retro chic styled watch isn't half bad. I even like how Mr. Jones Watches designed the dial and hands, but the message is fearful in my opinion. For a sure way to scare the neighbor's kids this year, this watch is your best bet.

A great way of summing of the design of the dial is being "functionally simple." Everything you need to use the functions, with some design elements subtly built in. Nothing looks cluttered and I like the ring in the center of the dial that wraps around the power reserve indicator and date window. Plus I like that the date window is circular and not square. The hour indicators are applied and I like the thin hash marks around the periphery of the dial that add to the classic, instrumental feel of the timepiece. There is SuperLumiNova applied on most of the hour markers and the hands. You'll need a rich amount of sunlight to charge them. The M104 is not the best watch for night viewing, but at least it does have some lume. Luminant is tricky in that you really need to have a wide application of it for it to be remarkable. You can also see the hallmark red applied on the 8 o'clock hour marker. The Arabic numerals that are present on the dial are in a font that is being used on a number of watches today. Such as on the Bell & Ross BR01 watches. This is a good thing and Marvin has successfully keyed into a noteworthy facet of popular watches. This font is used on many of their current watches and help them feel more familiar to those of us who are not familiar with the brand.
This is not even a list of their accomplishments and technologies, as this would be a very long list not suitable to this discussion. Seiko is part of a group of companies that includes Epson. There are actually a few companies that make up what the world knows as "Seiko" - and while the relationship is complex (maybe even by Japanese standards), I mention this to explain why some watches or Seiko products may have slightly different nomenclature. In America, Epson is a printer and scanner company (along with related items), but they are the proud part of the various Seiko watch facilities. Seiko right now has no real Japanese competitors. The closest one would be Citizen, but they don’t follow the same dedication to mechanical watches or watch movement technologies. For all the fine timepieces (and even luxury ones) that Citizen makes, Seiko is a different creature altogether.

In addition to the blade looks, the watch case also features something that Seiko calls blade polishing. The mirror polished surfaces are done in a special technique that gives them a superior shine and polish compared to most of what is out there. I got to see a little side-by-side discussing the differences and I agree that the Seiko blade polish system is easily superior. The polishing is done by hand, and another touch of luxury that is easy to appreciate.
The Ocean Diver is a distinctly retro style, looking back to the days when ocean diving was a frontier for exploration as romantic as space, and equally mysterious. Diving watches of this era have more in common style wise with other underwater gear and machinery than they did with their prissy cousins back in clean displays in luxury watch shops. The Ocean Diver is thematically similar to vintage offerings from notables such as Jaeger-LeCoultre, Longines, Blancpain, and other luxury brands that supplied professional divers as much as they did corporate board rooms. Ocean Diver style on the dial, numerals, and even the case hearken back to the 50s and 60s.
