Now on to the screen and functions. There are four displays that you can choose to look at, and each in either the positive or negative color tone. What I mean by the latter is that by pressing the right pusher on the watch in any screen will juxtapose the colors. For instance if the numbers are dark, and the background is light, press the button and the numbers before light, and the background dark. The four screens show: 1) the time with stacked hours and minutes, a calendar with stacked date and month, the alarm setting, and an alternative time display with a semi-analog hour on top of digital minutes. The watch also has an adjustable tone that will beep on each hour, but this can be turned off. The pushers are easy to use, but require a deep push into the case. A few downsides to e-ink are that there is no current backlight option, and there are no seconds indication available. Both are understandable given the nature of the screen, and are not merely left out of the design. e-Ink needs energy each time the screen "changes." If the watch were to count seconds, the screen would need to change each second, and thus use up too much energy. This way it only needs to change each minute. e-Ink does require a bit more voltage than a standard LCD display, but with the CR2025 battery, you should get 18-24 months of battery life. Plus, these types of batteries shouldn't be hard to find at non-watch stores as they are also used in non watch devices.
Previous contributor to aBlogtoRead.com Tom Mulraney posted a nice interview with MB&F's owner Max Busser. To be honest, most of the time I could care less about interviews with watch executives. It is a lot of "blowing smoke up their own asses." However, Max Busser is different, and the information provided in the interview is quite interesting if you care at all about the business side of the watch industry - especially when it comes to popular independents like MB&F (a brand that I cover pretty often).
The event will be at Lussori over the two day period from 11am to 5pm. In addition to Perrelet watches, they have an very impressive list of many hard to find luxury watch brands. If you are in the Monterey, CA area and can make it out, I recommend it for a enjoyable time.

Little things like beeps and alerts can be turned on or off, and in some instances you can choose what is displaying on the screen. While there isn't a mountain of customization options, there are enough to make you feel as though Casio cares about the watch being just right for you. This is further seen in their metal bracelets that often have ability to be micro adjusted. Casio really wants its owners to have a positive use and wearing experience. But with all the functions and options you get, there is a learning curve. Actually, if you've been using Casio watches for years like many people, there isn't that much to learn, but for people using a complex watch like this for the first time - I certainly recommend spending some time with the manual. Once you get in to it and understand how the watch works, you'll appreciate the elegance and refinement of the system. For such a small thing that uses so little power, to do so much, is amazing to me.

You might want to consult with your horologist about your current levels of Orthorhombic titanium aluminides. They might be dangerously low, or even, "gasp" not present. If you are Orthorhombic titanium aluminides deficient, not to worry. Richard Mille's new RM022 Aerodyne Dual Time Zone watch has got JUST what you need. Up from the RM021 watch, the Areodyne's gotten fancier. The tonneau shaped case in titanium holds many secrets and complexities. Richard Mille has the crown these days for watches that make you feel like there is an impossible amount of stuff going on inside of the cases.The RM022 is about 40mm wide and 48mm tall. The case is in titanium, or 18 white or red gold. All versions come with alligator straps and matching buckles.

Mr. Ruchonnet is actually a very famous watch designer being behind a lot of popular models. Just Google the guy and you'll be impressed. Well he and a few others I believe are behind Snyper with the "One" being their first model. While there is only one base watch right now, you can can all sorts of bezel treatments. Funny how you go from a very tool oriented style watch in all stealthy black to the same thing with a blingy diamond bezel and rubies. There are also versions with blue sapphires, and lots in between. Just click the link below for a PDF on all the styles available.
Now for the most important part of the watch, the face. This is the aspect of a watch that you are going to be looking at the most, so you'll want it to be good. Perrelet designed an interesting face for the A1021/3 Day Date power reserve. First, the sapphire crystal is about flush wit the case and uses a few good application of anti-reflective coating. The dial itself is a black with a slight sheen and done with a sunburst pattern. It is subtle, but a good touch that adds to the luxury composition of this timepiece. The Arabic hour indicators remind me of those on certain Jaeger-LeCoultre watches. They also remind me of the "gentleman traveler." Perhaps a fellow on a train when such means of transportation was still widely popular. Each hour marker and the hands are covered in a high quality luminant - likely SuperLumiNova. As you can see in the image, they light up brightly and are easy to view. As an added benefit of the lume being so thickly applied on the hour markers, they are raised up a bit from the dial. There is a centrally located seconds hand, and the three other complications that include the date, day, and power reserve indicator.
