This is a good deal from Israeli luxury watch maker Itay Noy, in celebration of the Pope's pilgrimage to the Holy Land (Israel, or course) that will take place this year from May 8th through the 15th. During this time, you can get one of five Itay Noy City Square Collection

ki/Saint_Peter%27s_Square">Piazza di San Pietro (Saint Peter's Square) watches for $2,500 down from the standard price of $3,300. This is a significant discount, and apt for the occasion. I'll be the first to say that it is ironic that an Israeli brand is celebrating a Catholic event, but that event will take place in Israel - so it's all good. The Itay Noy City Square Collection of watches is pretty cool. They take an aerial view map of an area, and turn it into a Google Maps like image for the dial of the watch. Looking at the dial, you are reminded of the region all the time. Saint Peter's square in the Vatican City within Rome, is one of the most famous landmarks in the world, and makes a great center for a watch face given its relative radial symmetry. The watch itself is 42.4mm wide in stainless steel all hand assembled with a Swiss ETA 2824-2 automatic mechanical movement inside. The Itay Noy City Square Piazza di San Pietro is part of a limited edition of just 99 watches, so this special offer is made even better by that fact. The $2,500 price is available only during May 8 - 15, 2009. To learn more or get your watch visit Itay Noy here.

Question: My wife and I keep $20,000 in a passbook savings account as an emergency reserve. What's driving me crazy is that we're getting only 60 cents a month in interest. I like the security of the account and the immediate access, but 60 cents a month on 20 grand???? How can I do better? --Dale F., Waldorf, Maryland

I've not always been kind to Greubel Forsey watches. I previously stated that some of their "new" "Invention" watches looked a bit too derivative. Well Robert Greubel and Stephen Forsey have redeemed themselves with their latest creation, the Double Tourbillon Technique watch. An odd name, but the design feels just right for what the brand is all about. The watch emphasizes the mechanical inventiveness and triumph of the movement and its complications. The movement has been designed to look and function well being the centerpiece

of the timepiece. The watch has no dial, it is simply the movement that you see with a watch dial included and the hour markers placed on a sapphire ring around the dial inside of the face. The Greubel Forsey manually wound Calibre GF 02s also features a subsidiary seconds dial and 120 hour power reserve indicator. The heart of the movement is the double tourbillon - which is one tourbillon literally placed inside of another. The inner tourbillon rotates each minute, while the outer tourbillon rotates each four minutes. 385 parts make up the hand built, decorated, and assembled movement. Looking at the watch in operation is likely a satisfying ballet of mechanical intrigue. I would find it hard to remember to check the time when looking at the watch. The Double Tourbillon Technique watch is available in red or white gold, and in platinum. The case is 47.5mm wide, while the movement itself is about 38mm wide. Overall the watch is phenomenal (with a price to match that I have a feeling is about $500,000), and everything that I think Greubel Forsey timepieces should aspire to be - virtually total focus on the mechanics and presentation of a beautiful movement. The details of the watch are written on the side near the crown as the rear of the watch is one large sapphire crystal viewing window.Ariel Adams publishes the luxury watch review site aBlogtoRead.com.Filed under: Greubel Forsey Double Tourbillon Technique Watch originally appeared on Luxist on Sat, 20 Jun 2009 16:02:00 EST.

Metallics aren't usually my favorite but something about this Metallic Fabric Tote by Stella McCartney really caught my eye. It's a pretty burnished brass color that acts as a neutral as far as pairing it with outfits goes, and it has a little bit of a "structure forced to go casual" vibe about it that I really like. A wide beige strap ties around the center,

Also included in the June 11th Antiquorum watch auction is this Cartier Pasha watch model that was a gift from Rat Packer Frank Sinatra to other fellow Rat Packer Sammy Davis Jr. The watch auction comes with news photos of Davis Jr. wearing the watch, while the rear of the watch still bears the engraving by Sinatra that reads, "Sammy, I Luv Ya, F.A.S." A highly collectible item for Cartier fans and Rat Pack devotees alike. The 18k gold Pasha wa

tch is printed with its manufacture date of 1987, and bears a quartz movement, being the "in" thing of the time. Today this would lead you to believe that Sinatra might have been miserly with his gift, but this was not the case in the late 80's when quartz movement based watches were much more popular than mechanical ones. The watch complications include the time, date with day, moon phase, and second time zone. The watch is very rare, and is estimated to go for a likely lower than actual auction price of $10,000 - $20,000.

We would be in a huge amount of financial worries if insurance was not on our side. If you think about it; if you get in an accident, what happens? The first things people do that have insurance is call their insurance company; those who do not have a hard time coming to them. Face it; having insurance is an everyday occurrence. Car insurance keeps us level headed when we are in the car.
You do not fully appreciate what vehicle insurance offers you until it is too late and you are in a vehicular accident. In
Read More
our lives, we will at least use insurance once. Many of us will use our car insurance for claims many times in our lives. It really is the luck of the draw; what are your odds? Even the smallest fender bender can leave you wondering how you will pay for the damage if not covered.
The most basic form of car insurance is Liability Insurance. This insurance covers all the basics when you get into an accident, big or small. When an accident occurs, someone will pull away from it being liable, or the cause of the accident. All structural, mental and physical damages are the responsibility of this person. When it all adds up, this is a very expensive and sticky situation to be in.
Liability Insurance is also called Third Party Cover. If you are deemed at fault for the accident, you will be able to avoid bankruptcy with liability insurance. You do not want to be stuck in court because you did not have insurance coverage. This would usually involve the person who was not at fault trying to get all the money they can out of you and then some more in court costs. This is their legal right. This process is long and drawn out often times taking years to come to a resolution. The resolution is usually you being wiped out of everything.
You should take out Third Party cover on all motor vehicles in your possession; including items like motor scooters. When you have cover, you will not be responsible to go to court and fight or negotiate terms and the like. This is what you pay the insurance company a premium for. Most of the time you will not use it; however, you will eventually and it will pay for itself. In the event of an accident, you will only be responsible for the excess. This is basically the amount that was predetermined during the signing of your policy. It is the money that you have to pay out of pocket before the insurance actually kicks in.
Consider other insurance options when you choose liability insurance. You want to make sure that in the event you have an accident, you will be fully covered for damages and more. Most people wait until it is too late; do not be that person. Ask your insurance agent today for more information that would best suit your needs.

I received word sometime ago that Jorg Hysek is no longer an actual part of Jorg Hysek watches, and the newest line of these branded watches that arrived this year (including the pictured Kilada Power Reserve watch) are increasingly evident of this. Over time, the actually good designs that Jorg Hysek left are increasingly being morphed with unrefined derivatives like this model. The "Hysek" component just seems to be increasingly missing from the

timepiece line. That isn't to say that each new watch the Hysek brand releases is a dog, but there are too many models, with too little soul. So if you are a fan, make sure to search out the models that are the most attractive. The materials and construction of the watches are fine and totally commendable. So if you are keen on the looks, have no worries about getting one or learning more. This pictured model enjoys a 41mm wide DLC coated steel and rose gold case with sapphire crystal. The watch is meant to be sporty but chic. It succeeds in being somewhat both of them, but after the novelty factor wears off, you are left with a design that feels less than cohesive. Inside is a mechanical Swiss movement with an unannounced price that is likely over $25,000. Ariel Adams publishes the popular watch review site aBlogtoRead.com.
