Nice swiss made timepieces.

They have a storied history though, and they certainly flash it with their new Machine à Ecrire Le Temps automaton. The founder of Jaquet Droz built automatons - self powered, primitive computers or toys that wowed the gilded heads of the day. Things like a wind-up, movable knight in amour. Or a life-size doll which with the press of a button, elegantly scribbled some common writing exercises in a journal. Even a chess playing mechanical man. Seeking to go back to it's roots (and have something to wow with at BaselWorld '09), Jaquet Droz meticulously engineered the fully mechanical (no electricity!) 'Time Typewriter'. Wind a crank, and the gears turn, levers move, pulleys pull, and ultimately, the pen is lifted and moved over an index card - where it proceeds to write out the current time. The YouTube link is to a video of the machine in action. JD is producing these, but essentially upon request - with a price of 400K Swiss Francs, they probably don't have many extras lying around. If you want one (and can afford it), visit: http://www.jaquet-droz.com/english/contact.html And let them know to start building one for you.

Most watches under $500 (including Swatches, Seikos, etc) use batteries and have snap on case backs. So how do you open them when you need to change the battery? If you examine the case back closely you'll fine a small groove/protrusion on the back. Insert the knife into the groove and push up. The case will pop open, exposing the innards. Really useful if you change a lot of watch batteries.

You don't have to buy new straps from the manufacturer or watch store. Either way, you'll want this handy tools from Bergeon, makers of the finest Swiss watchmaking items. The springbar tool has 2 ends - 1 finely forked end to lift and remove springs bars, those metal pins that hold your watch band in place, and a blunt, needle type end for opening watch clasps and pushing out watch band links. Extremely high quality and the best one on the market. Makes changing straps a breeze.

  • Nice style, very beautiful textiles and well manufactured. Definitely a good buy!

Besides their classic, good old fashioned Swiss glass jar, Hero produces a wide variety of flavors. They have all the classic, simple ones like Strawberry, Raspberry, Apricot, and Mixed berry. But they also have harder to find items such as Rosehip, Bitter Orange, Black Cherry, and Quince, to name a few. Obviously the best part is the taste. This probably comes from the fact that, unlike other preserves, Hero only uses the fruit itself and some sugar. No corn syrup or artificial colorings. Delicious on some whole-grain bread in the morning :)

All are true to the Tag style - modern yet timeless, fast and fashionable. Tag sunglasses feature lightweight titanium components, face-conforming elastomer inserts, and highly adjustable frames. Within a few months they will be coming out with a new pair of yellow tinted frames that are designed to enhance your night vision while driving. It's like the cheap ones you see on late night TV but MUCH cooler looking.

Their products are extremely well made and thought-out. I have the Si-Pi Shark Attack Ski/Snowboard helmet and love it. It fits my head perfectly. it has a sliding latch to adjust the amount of air reaching your head. It's got a padded chin-strap with an adjustable cinch for a perfect fit, as well as a cinch in the back to ensure the helmet stays where it needs to be. Not to mention the wicked cool styling. Perfect. They are hard to find in the USA. I would recommend looking online for them, as they are excellent products.

Have you seen your sister using tweezers? Just look away, look away. Men need one (just one!) pair of tweezers in their lives, and it's not for their legs. Just about every guy has an ingrown hair or two, and shaving only makes it worse. Use these highly pointed, surgical grade steel tweezers from Rubis to gently pry them out, then shave them away. If you're not careful you can bleed a little, so do this with 2 hands. Also, as the points are so fine, remember to cover it with the included plastic cap when not in use, and try not to drop it on a hard floor. Good luck in your quest for the perfect shave!

Quite popular in the relative utopia of Switzerland, tn has recently made its entrance to the states and is expanding its distribution here. tn Sunglasses are made for serious sport - they have excellent, non slip grips, practically unbreakable frames, interchangeable lenses and cool designs to boot!
