Halogen Energy Saver from Osram

Osram Bulb


Osram has developed halogen lamps that can be screwed into normal light bulb sockets. The lamps' service life is at least twice as long as that of conventional light bulbs, however. The biggest advantage of this lamp -- the Halogen Energy Saver -- is that it consumes as much as 30 percent less electricity than normal light bulbs, while providing the same level of light intensity for interior lighting. The new lamp is available in a range of different designs. It comes in the socket sizes E14 and E27 and is also available in low-voltage variants for applications of a more commercial nature. |GlobalGiants.com|

The foundation of the TX series, a proprietary German-engineered six-hand mechanism, offers a full spectrum of features not typically found in traditional analog timepieces. Each model is made of solid stainless steel or titanium and incorporates a sapphire crystal, screw-down crowns on select models, sculpted dials and luminous features that enhance the distinctive look. Each watch is water resistant to 10 ATM (100m / 330 ft)."
