Maurice Lacroix Pontos Watch

The elegant design of this watch attracted me to it right away. I love how they’ve integrated the luminescent points (hands and hour markers) into the dial. At night, it appears more compact and easier to read. And it’s a manually-wound watch. I don’t know about you, but I love winding my watches at the end of each day.

PowerEx MH-C9000 WizardOne Battery Charger-Analyzer

I’ve been using this advanced battery charger-analyzer for over a year and I love it. You can read my in-depth notes about it here and also see a video where I use it.

The MH-C9000 WizardOne Battery Charger & Analyzer is suitable for the casual consumer users, enthusiast and professionals. The WizardOne is capable of charging, conditioning, analyzing, cycling, forming and discharging one to four AA or AAA batteries, all while digitally displaying the battery capacity and voltage. All four slots can be operated independently in different modes and settings. Those seeing the unit for the first time will be struck by its large LCD screen, backlit by ultra-bright white LEDs. Measuring over 3.5″ by 1.5″, the display is more than three times larger than its closest competition and shows a wealth of information that is easy to read. In addition to the standard charging, conditioning and discharging, the WizardOne charger-analyzer also offers two unusual operations modes. The “Break-In” mode allows the user to input the capacity of the battery and performs a “forming” charge designed to properly break-in new batteries. The “Cycle” mode allows user to charge and discharge batteries consecutively while storing the capacity for up to 15 cycles. There are ten selectable charging and discharging current from 0.2A to 2.0A and 0.1A to 1.0A respectively. The charger also features four independent temperature sensors using Maha’s latest temperature rise detection algorithm in addition to the usual peak temperature detection. It also armed with additional patented termination algorithms found in other Maha chargers. The unit can be operated in a “basic” and “advanced” mode. In the basic mode, the user merely needs to insert the batteries with no further key press. The charger will select the appropriate settings automatically, making it suitable for the casual users.

Baume & Mercier 8692 Classima Automatic Chronograph

I love the design of this watch. It’s so elegant, so refined. Time and time again, I find myself coming back to Baume & Mercier watches, they strike a chord with me.

The eye-catching elegance of the Baume & Mercier Men’s Classima Automatic Chronograph Watch features both chronograph subdials and electric blue accents for increased functionality and style. Classima Executives watches are the heritage of Baume & Mercier’s watch-making know-how. They offer a style derived from sobriety, a classical, elegant look. Classima Executives reinterprets the brand’s watch-making tradition with mechanical movements with small, useful complications and refined finishings. Constructed with a stainless steel case, the timepiece includes a round stainless steel bezel and a metallic-brown leather wristband secured with a deployment buckle. A scratch-resistant-sapphire window shields the textured silver dial, which features silver-dash hour markers, slim minute markers, and Arabic numeral indexes at five-minute intervals. The dial also includes two chronograph subdials with electric-blue detailing, a date calendar at three o’clock, and electric blue watch hands. Featuring Swiss-automatic movement, the watch is water resistant to 165 feet (50 M).
