Bowers & Wilkins P5 Series 2 – On The Head Review

DSCF0051So we have had these Bowers & Wilkins P5 Series 2 on review now for a couple of months and I have to say they are amazing. Aesthetically to look at they are great and also extremely comfortable. With them having the amazingly soft leather on the ear cushion and headband that make these headphones both stylish and very comfortable.

I was quite easily wearing these for a full day walking around London and never had the urge to take them off. I never at one point experienced discomfort. The best part about these tho are the sound quality. The performance of these P5 Series 2 are amazing!! When you look at the size of the frame and headphones themselves you wouldn’t believe that they would make such a beautiful sound.  There is no distortion at top levels and when you need the bass to Kick, its kicks!! Pure sound quality at its best. I believe these also have taken some technology drivers from there big brother the P7. They are extremely well balanced and rich in sound. An all round winner in my book.

These are an expensive headphone at £249.99 but worth every penny.

You can buy them HERE direct from the Bowers & Wilkins site.

Lum-Tec Watches

lum-tec-logo“Maximum Darkness Visibility”

Not many of you will have heard of Lum-Tec watches. They are a family run, USA based business that strives for perfection and quality.

Lum-Tec watches are all made from the best materials possible and put together by very highly skilled and trained professional watchmakers.

The specific watch that was sent to us is the M53 Bronze. A new addition to the Lum-Tec family and what a beauty it is. From taking it out the box we put it straight to the test of London life.. RAIN!!!

Overview of the watch (taken from website)

The M53 Bronze is part of Lum-Tec’s limited-edition bronze series of men’s wristwatches. The M53 has a solid CuSn8 bronze case that will develop a patina over time. Each case is unique and will tarnish differently, and the corrosion actually protects the metal underneath. Choose whether to polish it back to new or allow it take on its own unique character. The wrist watch comes with two watch straps: a brown leather strap and an anti-static molded rubber strap. The M53 is water-resistant at a depth of 300 meters and is part of a limited numbered series of 300 watches. A free lifetime of timing adjustment and a limited one-year warranty are also included with purchase

Fresh out the box. Lum-Tec M53 Bronze

DSCF0282When you receive your watch you get a beautifully crafted wooden box. Inside is the watch and then two hidden compartments to hold watch straps (Black rubber and Tan Leather). The black leather with white Stitch is an extra charge. Such a great little detail with the compartments but makes the world of difference. Such a great idea.

Now for the London weather….

DSC_4854In my opinion this is a stunning watch and Lum-Tec have done a simple amazing job designing it. It really is a beautiful everyday watch that is an eye catcher. They also have the M54 Bronze, which is a brown dial if you were looking for something different maybe?
