Union Glashutte Averin Chronograph Watch

leave a comment »

d003_525_16_051_01A watch that makes a statement – the Averin Chronograph should be worn with pride, courage and grandeur. Striking elements are brought together in an extravagant square design. The unconventional arrangement of the triple date indicator is accentuated by the structure of the dial. The latter is made from a single piece which is relief-embossed with seven strikes – a technique which requires the highest levels of horological skill. A particularly distinguished mechanical chronometer which will charm demanding timepiece enthusiasts.

Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City

with 2 comments

info_boxart

If you’ve already played through last year’s Grand Theft Auto IV, you have a pretty good idea of what to expect in Episodes from Liberty City. The included episodes–The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony–take place concurrently with the original game’s storyline, and while each introduces a handful of new features, the core game play remains largely unchanged. The Ballad of Gay Tony injects Liberty City with an overdose of guns, glitz, and grime. As Luis Lopez, part-time hoodlum and full-time assistant to legendary nightclub impresario Tony Prince (a.k.a. “Gay Tony”), players will struggle with the competing loyalties of family and friends, and with the uncertainty about who is real and who is fake in a world in which everyone has a price. On the other hand in the lost and demand Johnny is a veteran member of The Lost, a notorious biker gang. Johnny has been creating business opportunities for The Lost in Liberty City, but his first loyalty must be to the patch he wears on his back and to Billy Grey, the club’s President. However, when Billy returns from rehab hell-bent on bloodshed and debauchery, Johnny finds himself in the middle of a vicious turf war with rival gangs for control of a city torn apart by violence and corruption. A neat feature introduced in The Lost and Damned, which also made it into The Ballad of Gay Tony, is a mission checkpoint system. Some of the missions take a long time to beat, and a good number of them involve riding or driving to locations that might be a good distance away before the action really gets under way. In GTAIV it could be frustrating to fail these missions, because doing so meant restarting them from the beginning, but the checkpoint system addresses that problem by giving you the option to restart from the last checkpoint that you made it through successfully. Unlike the more inventive and varied missions in The Ballad of Gay Tony, the missions in The Lost and Damned rarely deviate from the original GTAIV formula. You get to ride alongside your gang brothers occasionally, and you can call for backup from them during certain missions, but playing as Klebitz feels a lot like playing as Bellic for the most part. Lopez has a very different group of friends and acquaintances than the other two protagonists, but he’s a killer-for-hire and he dabbles in drug-dealing, so he inevitably ends up moving in some of the same circles–or at least looking at them down the barrel of a gun. Again, you get to see a handful of missions play out from a second or even third perspective, and given Lopez’s penchant for parachutes and the prominence of helicopters in his episode, his view is often very different. Parachutes are perhaps the most obvious new feature introduced in The Ballad of Gay Tony, and while there aren’t many missions that use them, those that do are definitely some of the episode’s best. You can use parachutes outside of story missions as well. When you’re not trying to progress through one of the episodes’ stories or killing time with optional activities, you might like to put your skills to the test online in games that support up to 16 players. Each episode comes with its own multiplayer modes. The Lost and Damned has seven and in addition to the requisite Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, and Race options, there are some really inventive ones. They include Chopper vs. Chopper, in which a player on a bike has to race through checkpoints while a player in a helicopter gunship tries to stop him, and Witness Protection, which casts one player as a bus driver that a team of police must protect from a team of bikers. Club Business is a lot of fun as well, since it lets you and up to seven other players play as a biker gang and complete missions cooperatively.

The Ballad of Gay Tony, on the other hand, has only four multiplayer modes, and they’re all enhanced versions of modes from GTAIV. The Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch modes benefit from the inclusion of new weapons like sticky bombs, an advanced sniper rifle, and an automatic shotgun with explosive rounds. Meanwhile, Race and GTA Race modes feature new street courses and now give every driver access to a nitrous tank that gradually refills after every boost. This multiplayer content can be a lot of fun if you get in with a good group of people. However, it can be tough to find people playing some of the modes, and it’s unfortunate that to move from one episode’s modes to the other’s you have to go back out to the main menu, load up the other episode, and access the multiplayer options from the in-game cell phone again. A single multiplayer lobby that combines content from GTAIV and both episodes would be much more convenient. If you’re still playing GTAIV you might want to wait until you’ve beaten that game, and if you’ve already downloaded one episode it’d obviously be more cost-effective for you to just download the other. Episodes from Liberty City might not be the best way for you to experience these downloadable episodes, but do make sure you experience them. ref (www.gamespot.com)

Bremont Martin-Baker Watch

leave a comment »

Watchespopup500

The Bremont watch MB1 has successfully endured 12-30G throughout the 1st second of ejection
 
1. Catapult phase 12 – 15G
2. Rocket motor 12 – 15G
3. Drogue Stability 30G (600kt sled test)
4. Parachute deployment 15G
 
Bremont Watch Company and Martin-Baker have collaborated to design and build the ultimate aviation watch. The alliance has produced a unique aviation watch that will embody all that is meant by ‘Made in Britain’.
As the pioneer of the ejection seat and supplier to over 70% of the Western world‘s air forces, Martin-Baker represents the pinnacle of British engineering. The partnership combined Martin-Baker’s knowledge of testing, materials and design with Bremont’s watch making skills. The aim was to challenge conventional mechanical watch design, by applying standards that truly define ‘a matter of life and death’.
An ejection seat may sit unused for 40 years, but the day it is needed it has to work. As a company, their testing facility is unique, and the Bremont MB watches have been through trials found nowhere else. An example is the ability to simulate 30 years of aircraft life through a vibration testing machine and this is the first watch ever to go through a live ejection testing programme.
The movement is assembled at Bremont’s atelier in Switzerland, but final assembly of the watches will take place in the UK. The MB1 and MB2 will be Bremont’s first ‘Made in Britain’ wristwatch.
 
Exclusivity of the first edition of the Bremont MB1 is unparalleled in the watch industry:
it will only be available for purchase to those who have ejected a Martin-Baker seat.
Martin-Baker seats have saved over 7283 lives to date; each watch will be engraved with the individual’s ejection number.
The second edition of the watch, Bremont Bremont “>MB2, will be available for sale alongside the full range of Bremont watches, but – as with all Bremont timepieces – the annual production will be very limited.
 
Specifications:
 – Swiss Made BE-36A automatic chronometer movement
– Trip-Tick® case design with inner rotating ball click bezel
– Aluminium Trip-Tick® case barrel
– Water resistant 100m
– Anti-magnetic Faraday Cage
– Anti-shock movement mount
– Super-LumiNova®
– Sapphire crystal with 9 layers of anti-reflective coating
– Case diameter 43mm
Can be supplied with a Leather
or NATO canvas strap.
