Insignum Watches for Christmas

In my collection, "I" stands for Insignum.  If you are looking for something a little different from the watches that are so commonly advertised in late night infomercials, you might see if you can find a watch from Germany's Insignum brand. 
An Insignum watch would make an unusual and unexpected Christmas Gift for the watch enthusiast.  Unfortunately, supplies of Insignum watches in the U.S. are dwindling.
The company makes a number of attractive sport and dive models.  For example, the Insignum Activa 3-Eye'd Black Blue Sports Chronograph shown below is waterproof to 100 meters and shows the day and date.

Insignum watches are offered in a wide variety of colors such as shown in this orange Campus Date, Day, Chronograph watch.  These watches can be as bold as you want to be.

While I love the more creative Insignum designs, I was also drawn to their classic diver style watches.  For example, this Insignum Subwave is a fantastic looking watch.  With 200 meter water resistance and a screw down crown, it has the fortitude for any underwater mission.

Since I didn't have a real dive watch, when ZuluTimeZone.com offered me a chance at a  Subwave I jumped at it.  The Subwave is a 48 mm diameter watch so it brings a little heft to the wrist.

Unfortunately, Insignum watches are now in short supply here in America.  If you'd like to buy an Insignum watches, your best online source is ZuluTimeZone.com.  Since these watches are becoming rather rare here, you may find yourself with a rather exclusive timepiece.
