Anyone with some knowledge of the history of personal timepieces is aware that the Hamilton brand is over a century old and that it has been a company that has brought innovation and high quality products to the market since it’s inception. My grandfather owned a 992b 16 open face Hamilton that his father gave him in the 1920s.

I think he loved that old timepiece as much as he did my grandmother.

Storm of London already had an interesting, edgy offering of wrist watches and then for 2011 they exploded with wild new colorways and kick-ass designs. All of the new products are quite reasonably priced and are all available on-line now – you don’t have to wait like some manufacturers make you. A few of the pieces are limited edition, so if you are a collector, here’s another opportunity to sock away some wearable equity.
It’s hard to know where the Meister designers might have been heading when they started, but now it’s becoming more evident with the release of each new model – this is a clubbing, hip-hop and street savvy line that we’ll see especially on the wrists of guys that spend the money for top-shelf branded apparel and know how to mix it up for a distinctive look. And look who’s rockin’ Meistro these days; CeeLo, SnoopDog, Peanutbutter Wolf, Drama, and even dk-head Terrell Owens
