5 Most Popular WeWood Watches

The story of WeWOOD begun in 2009 in Italy, more precisely, in Florence. This watchmaker’s timepieces have no doubt been touched by the creativity atmosphere of this artistic city.  In addition to design care, WeWOOD have also shown interest in eco-friendliness. The claim to be the first who create watches made of wood which are absolutely free of toxic materials. Exotic remnant hardwoods from different corners of the world are the main source of WeWOOD’s timepieces. Not only that, they stated that they plant a tree every time they sell a watch. This initiative is the fruit of a collaboration with NGOs like American Forests and Trees for the Future. This is in fact a very interesting project which combines profit and non-profit benefits.

Invicta Watch Group and Rolex

invicta-watches-united-states-rolex

No created thing is invincible as everyone knows already, but Invicta is the name that a Swiss has named its watchmaking company. This is in fact a very big and catchy word and which requires hard work to prove when it comes to making timepieces.

Invicta’s Ultimate Inspiration

It’s not a secret, at least for watches collectors, that Invicta copy the design of many Rolex successful timepieces. The Submariner is a great example and which Invicta replicated in one of it’s watches from the Pro Diver collection. Invicta stated clearly that it’s an homage. But many Rolex fans were furious after that the American watchmaker have released the copy of the Submariner. I don’t know if Rolex have sued Invicta Watch Group, but I don’t think that stating “homage” in the Pro Diver description, whether on the website or on the catalogue, will make the case look legit.

Invicta and Rolex : Same Class ?

I have to admit that the Invicta Pro Diver is really a masterpiece when it comes to copying. Of course I’m talking about the look of the watch not what’s under the hood. The watch case, bezel, dials, band, stainless steel, polished and non polished…. Everything almost looks the same. Except for the logo and the wings of Invicta’s logo ehich you can find on the seconds sweeping hand. There is no doubt that Rolex chooses high quality materials to create its timepieces. Now when we compare the components of the two, we notice the differences. The luxury watchmaker uses a very high quality movement and which is the Calibre 3255. This is a new-generation mechanical movement with 14 patents they provide a high precision compared with others in the market. On the other hand, the movement used in Invicta Pro Diver, more precisely thr 9094, is NH35A caliber from Japan. And because the movement is the central piece of a watch there is no big need to go through other mechanical details.

Invicta watches are not Rolex watches for sure, but their low price makes them a nice deal especially for low budget watch collectors dreaming if owning a Rolex.

Humidity Issues And Solution

dehumidifiers-humiditySince many homes suffer from humidity, I decided to tackle this issue and share some info on it. it’s true that not all people are sensitive to moisture and molds, but in the positive case, it could lead to serious health issues. Throat irritation, nasal stuffiness, eye irritation are some of these problems. In case the person has mold allergy the reaction could be even worse. This is why this issue should be taken seriously.

WHERE DOES THE HUMIDITY COME FROM IN A HOUSE ?

Air indoors become highly humid as a result of many factors.
I Western ares, moisture is most felt in winter days when weather is cold and damp. This happens because humidity indoor comes from the confrontation of water vapor coming from the house and cold coming from outside that infiltrates a poorly insulated interior.
Indeed, our daily activities generate moisture: dishes, showers, baths, drying clothes, cooking, the simple fact of breathing also generates moisture.

These everyday activities and the moisture they generate will not be a problem if the site is properly heated and insulated, however, if not, moisture will concentrate and condense in the coldest parts of the house. Consequently, moisture is often found on thin walls exposed to outside air, near windows or in an unheated room. Moisture can also be felt and noticed in a non-homogeneously heated room where the air can not circulate. Similarly, a closet that is stuck to a cold wall will very likerly cause your clothes to suffer.

HOW IS MOISTURE MANIFESTED AND HOW BAD IS IT?

The humidity in the air is not a totally bad things as it’s part of nature that has a role, it is even desirable because otherwise the air would be too dry. However it is important that it does not exceed a certain level. For us as humans, the most comfortable relative humidity is between 45% and 65% of water vapor in the air.

moisture

Generally, we known that an interior is too wet when notice that small droplets of water have appeared on the glass of a our windows. These droplets of water are the result of condensation. This doesn’t become a problem until this phenomenon of condensation begin to give rise to mold. The effects of mold are particularly unpleasant in an interior

– Damaged parquet flooring
– Damaged paint
– Peeling wallpaper
– Dark grayish spots on the walls
– Bad odors
– white powdery mold on clothes

A Popular Solution

Home Health Improvement Devices

When one member of the family is an allergy sufferer, it´s the beginning of a story that could develop until it ends by trying all sort of medicines and devices. This is a big field of research for both scientists and engineers that together collaborate to come up with new solutions. From Ventolin to air purifiers, all sort of devices are created and developed.

Technology, Design and Health

“Give me something easy, not painful, looks nice, not expensive and which will improve our health as soon as possible”. This is how I see what people hope for today. There are many disciplines, as this subheading suggests, involved in the process of creating a health improvement device and which are Technology, Design and Health.

Technology

To come with the faster processing device, technology is high priority for companies as it’s the main pillar on which they could praise the merit of their products. The company Guardian Technologies for examples have implemented various technologies in its GermGuardian air purifiers. HEPA Filters, UV-C Technology and Charcoal Filter are all technologies which are used to market their air cleaning systems. For more in depth info check GermGuardian.net.

Design

Design is an essential component today because of it’s different benefits. Design is ergonomy. A nicely designed device will fulfill the task it’s designed for in the easiest way possible. Design is decoration. A dehumidifier for exam

ple is a device meant to lower moisture level inside homes, but if it shouldn’t compromise the interior design. Design is also used to give a feeling of sturdiness while using only plastic, so buyers should pay attention to this fact.

Health

This is in reality the most important aspect of these devices. Because air purifiers, dehumidifiers and humidifiers are all meant to serve a health purpose, failing in this mission would nullify the value of technology and design. Many customers are aware of this aspect and are looking for review all around the internet before purchasing any home improvement unit so that they could base the quality and efficiency of these devices on the experiences of owners.

Ozeri Brezza Desktop Fan Review | Keeping Cool in the Summer Heat !

Ozeri-Brezza-Oscillating-High-Velocity-Desk-Fan-review (2)Summer is almost upon us and in Southern California we’ve already had many spring days that felt more like summer with temperatures reaching the upper eighties.

Our house is energy efficient with dual paned windows and a house fan to keep air circulating. We also have shutters that really help with temperature control. It usually has to be in the upper 90’s, low 100’s before we have to use our air conditioning. It can get a little uncomfortable though so we like to use portable fans in each room to stay cool, especially at night.

My daughter didn’t have much space in her room for a full sized floor fan so I went with this Ozeri Brezza for her because I could set it on her dresser without taking up much space. It’s all ready to go and set up with no assembly required. Just plug it in.

We like to have “white noise” in all our rooms at night to drown out the sound of barking dogs, house noises and kids waking up at all hours. This fan is definitely the loudest in the house. It’s not quiet at all, even on the lowest setting. I have to keep it there for my daughter so it doesn’t make TOO much noise.

It’s a very simple basic fan with one knob to turn to the different settings and push for oscillation. My daughter prefers not to have it moving so we just keep it on number one without oscillation but it’s nice to have the option. When we had our carpet cleaned I had it on the highest speed and oscillating to speed up drying. This setting is extremely loud.

The Ozeri Brezza is great for what we need and a nice basic fan. It’s a bit loud if you care about that but otherwise a solid little fan.
