For the die-hard, cult followers of the brand, this limited edition could be cold comfort, but with its trendy colors and retro-chic appearance it could still intrigue many. I feel that it could be equally interesting for those following the latest trends as well as to those who have always wanted to have a vintage watch but were afraid of buying a several decades old watch for daily wear.??If this watch manages to keep its fairly straightforward promises of being a retro-styled, yet fresh looking and quality made timepiece, then it just might prove to be a quick sell-out. Anyhow, if Zodiac's new go at retro styling manages to pull that off or not is still in question and it's something we could only tell after we get some hands-on time with one of these. Again, price is $595, and these will be available at? LUM TEC 500M Watch Coming In 2010 watch releases It was only a matter of time until LUM-TEC created a diver watch, and I couldn't be happier about the result (that will be released late next year). While LUM-TEC still refers to the watch as the 500M concept sometimes, it is going into production as a limited edition of 500 pieces. The watch includes all of that LUM-TEC DNA we love in a package that we can't resist. Personally, I am a sucker for nice diving watches and this items knows precisely how to get my attention (and desire). The design is a mix between modern looks, classic diving watches, and some other LUM-TEC pieces. The case is in steel and 44mm wide with a massive rotating divers bezel (with an equally large lume dot). The case is made with a series of aggressive looking sharp angles. Notice the thick lugs which add to the visual strength of the watch and also look like the tips of Japanese katana swords. LUM-TEC looked at other aggressively styled diver watches for inspiration when designing the face of the watch. You can see the large orange bordered minute hand and very easy to read face. Of course LUM-TEC places their special MDV (maximum darkness visibility) lume on the dial for easy darkness viewing (even underwater). There is also the extra large crown - makes the watch visually more impressive, and also make it easy to operate with gloves. Crystal should be sapphire. As the name of the watch goes, the timepiece will be water resistant to 500 meters. This is a step up from the original 300 meters was aiming for. Inside the watch is a new movement for LUM-TEC. This time they will use a high quality Seiko Sii NH15J automatic mechanical movement. This is a similar movement to the one used in their ,Replica rolex watches, but it offers automatic as well as handwinding. The Seiko people will of course be proud to have one of their movement in these exclusive American watches. Attached to the watches will be high quality rubber straps as well as likely metal bracelet options. Like I said, when the watches are due for released in late 2010, the price will be around $895. A step up for the brand, but for a stepped up watch. Once again LUM-TEC has successfully been able to achieve a gleeful "wow" from me. More on the LUM-TEC 500M watch as it comes closer to release next year. As much as I love , I don't see them pop up very often. The boutique German watch maker only produces 700 watches each year, few of which ever reach American shores. All Temption watches exude Bauhaus design, and this particular model has its share of art deco inspired influence as well. Owning a , I can easily say that Temption watches are one of the most well built, highly functional, and solid watches I have ever had the pleasure of interacting with. There may be no watch I am more comfortable living with on a day to day basis than a Temption. Replica Handbags

The campsites are nestled among tall evergreen trees at the confluence of the Dewatto River and White Creek. You can drive or walk the Dewatto River 3/4-mile to the saltwater beach on Dewatto Bay, which is part of Hood Canal. Features camping, hiking, fishing, shellfish.

The campground is a delightful area for families with young children because the river bed is a wonderful area to explore and play in.  The summertime water levels and current are not threatening except to the youngest children. Groves of tall trees protect  and cool on warm days. Electricity is available for 37 campsites; there are 4 maintained toilets; a covered community kitchen area is located centrally to parking.  Here is diagram of the campsites. Don't forget to make reservations.

Did we say 'primitive'? Aside from the 37 campsites with electricity, there is no water system, sewage dump or garbage facilities. Please be prepared by bringing drinking water and removing your waste. Here is a list of our campground rules.

The campground is a park for the whole family to experience and enjoy.  There is fishing, hiking or just sitting back watching the world go by; that is being "Dewattoized".

Dewatto Bay is just a short jaunt down the road, with a public beach area for oyster picking, clam digging or just watching the sun go down behind the Olympics.
