For a watch with so many features, the tone of the Glashütte Original Seventies Chronograph Panorama Date is rather understated. The power reserve indicator is rather subtly introduced as a cut-out in the nine-o’clock subdial. When the watch has no power, the cut-out is white. As it gets more power, the white becomes black. Instead of using a subdial for the chronograph hour totalizer, it has a 12-hour counter disk window that is subtly placed right above the center hands. The subdials are subtly recessed and a slightly lighter shade of silver than the galvanized silver dial.
As you might expect for a limited-edition watch of this nature (more on that in a minute), the movement is a few rungs up the ladder as well, with the usual Miyota being swapped out for ETA 2824. Now, back to that limited edition part. While Magarette has certainly had some limited runs in the past, they're generally counted more in the hundreds. For the Magrette Regattare Carbon, this is about as close to a piece unique as we have seen the brand make available to the public. At an asking price of ,225, all (10) pieces in the run have been spoken for. magrette.com
"I bought this watch for one reason, to survive offshore. It's obvious. When my 120,500 foot yacht sank after hitting an endangered reef outside of Fiji, I knew I was in a bad situation. I could have saved my 40,000 man crew, but I had a Phil Collins moment and didn't, they all drowned. Ironically I met up with a bunch of plane crash survivors, turned out to be the characters from the show lost. So as they're sitting there improvising survival plans, I just laugh. With this Audemars watch, I simply hit the survival function, and I spawned my own Zodiac boat and putted away, leaving them to die alone and saddened. The only problem was I contracted scurvy and had to give myself constant saltwater enemas, which sucked. They forgot the nutritional function in this survival watch.... so I then was forced to kill a whole gang of baby seals for food and used their tears for hydration. Long story short, if you're an extreme survivalist, you will need this watch. I've climbed everest naked, dived in volcanic eruptions, scuba dived the marinas trench, and base jumped from the moon, all unscathed. It's that good."
For the 75th Anniversary of Batman, Swiss Romain Jerome has partnered with DC Comics to produce the Batman-DNA collection of limited edition watches. There is one version of the watch, and it is limited to just 75 pieces, with a Batman logo on the dial and case shaped with angles on the bezel to remind of the Batmobile. It might appear as though there are two versions, but it is just a "light and darkness shot" of the watch with and without the luminant glowing. This is the first watch relationship between Romain Jerome and DC Comics, but the concept is by no means a surprise, given Romain Jerome's history of making limited edition watches in honor of pop culture icons.
I wrote before that I am a fan of Arnold & Son because, despite being relatively new to the haute horology scene, Arnold & Son has successfully established a signature look and a reputation for creating highly technical pieces - such as the Time Pyramid and the Dial Side True Beat. To celebrate the 250th anniversary of its namesake - the English watchmaker John Arnold - they have created the Double Tourbillon Escapement watch, a watch that features not one but two exposed tourbillons on the dial with two independent time indications.
Given the limited production of the Fiona Krüger Skull watches and the pretty decent suppliers she managed to work with, each is produced with the same treatment as many much more established luxury watches. So it doesn't matter that Fiona Krüger isn't a watchmaker (she never claimed to be one), you can still design a watch, and if you have the right connections, you can have them produced by some of the most talented people in Switzerland. Fiona appears to be genuinely thankful of the help she received in her efforts, but makes it clear that working with the Swiss is difficult for those who have evenly slightly "out of the box thinking" when it comes to design or manufacturing. There is a reason so many Swiss watches look the same; even if Swiss workmanship is excellent at producing particular items, the scope of their open-mindedness about what they will work on is often limited, warns Krüger (as well as a host of other people I've talked to about the same topic).
Past that, it also will grab readings throughout the day to establish what your resting heart rate is - a valuable piece of information for your fitness. You can tell this is occurring because you may notice (I did, at least) a flickering green light coming from the bottom of the watch - this is when the pulse sensor is active. Should you be done with resting, and wanting to push your heart rate, you can flip the watch into a mode that is more suited to tracking your run, for instance, as well as your heart rate.
MR-G and MT-G has been available in Japan for a while, but the newest G-Shock MT-G and MR-G models are totally new. The decision for Casio to release these models in other regions of the world is part of a larger trend of Japanese companies such as Seiko and Citizen deciding to make their high-end timepiece offerings available to select customers outside of Japan. Casio might be a little late to the game, but they certainly aren't too late. Besides, high-end Casio is nothing like high-end Seiko in regard to price or product direction.
The Tudor Heritage Black Bay checks a lot of boxes for the sort of watch I would buy for myself. At 41 mm, it's an ideal size for an everyday sport watch and the 50 mm lug to lug ensures a good fit on my wrist. At 12.7 mm thick I wouldn't call the Black Bay thin, but it's not bad for a dive watch, and I didn't find it especially difficult to wear with long sleeves. The maximum thickness includes the slightly domed sapphire crystal, which has been made to look like a vintage crystal with curved edges that raise above the inner lip of the bezel. The Tudor Heritage Black Bay has 22 mm lugs that are regrettably not drilled but can accommodate any 22 mm strap. To that end, being a nicely proportioned and classic-style dive watch, you'll be hard-pressed to find a strap that doesn't work on the Tudor Heritage Black Bay Blue.
When I first met Kevin, he was wearing a watch that has become particularly popular for those transcending the line of being a lover of mainstream luxury watch brands to the more exclusive realm of the independent watch maker. The entry point into F.P. Journe is the wonderfully simple and beautifully blue-dialed Chronometre Bleu. Mr. Journe, of course, couldn't produce just a basic watch for his entry-level piece, so he decided to make the three-hand Chronometre Bleu with a tantalum case (that looks a lot like tungsten) and unique metallic blue dial. The movement is, of course, in gold and remarkably attractive. You won't see Kevin Rose wearing an 18k rose gold Rolex or a diamond-decorated Chopard. That isn't his style, neither is it the type of so many of today's most important emerging watch collectors. For Rose, watch collecting seems to be all about discovering timeless beauty in items of strong inherent value that tantalize his love of things that work well.
The Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Calendar Meteorite Dial remains in its 39 millimeter wide case. For those intrigued by its design and array of complications, but not necessarily by precious metals, it will be good news that both the original and the 2015 versions are available in pink gold and steel. Regardless of case materials, both 2013 models came with a silvered, "sunray-brushed" dial - certainly a very restrained canvas for the conservatively (and elegantly) styled dial, with its small day and month apertures, running seconds and moon phase subdial at 6 o'clock, made complete with the central date.
ABTW: Will you remain a voice on Watchuseek? You've mentioned that you are going to stay in the watch industry. Where might we run into you again?
First, allow us to have a few words about the Sellita-based Elite, to help better understand how the Synopsis fits into the picture. As per (now ex-)Zenith CEO Jean-Frederic Dufour's claims, by 2014, Zenith has reached the very limits of its output capacity at around 50,000 movements, which was coupled with a steady single-figure growth year over year. "Single-figure" may not sound like much, but even at 5-7% growth, that deceptively small number necessitates the expansion of annual output by at least a few thousand movements. That consequently requires more people, more machinery, more space, more supply of raw materials – which in turn, makes the company act like a Jenga tower: growing constantly to a size greater than ever before, but also not as secure and steady as it had been.
Jean-Claude Biver: I have already contributed to reorganizing a few brands such as Blancpain, Omega, and lately, Hublot. Each time, I try first to learn, listen from the management before making any decisions. I also try always to help the management and to make any effort in order to maintain as much as possible the existing management. I have done exactly the same this time, and therefore, did not anticipate any departure of anybody. Now that I have taken the position as interim CEO, I will pursue the implementation of the new policy, which is to concentrate all our efforts on our strong and historical price segment, which is the segment between ,500 to ,000.
According to Greubel Forsey, "A miniature microscope set into the caseband will allow full appreciation of this chef-d'œuvre." By that, they mean the nano-sculpture, but it sounds like in addition to the lens in the crown-style appendage at 9 o'clock, there will be another microscope-like item attached to the strap? Is that what they are saying? You can now begin to understand how I feel like this is one of the most mysteriously discussed watches around.
Leeds & Son: Watch lovers in Palm Desert wear their watches. They do not just sit in vaults or are brought out for special occasions. Our clients wear their tourbillon watches, their repeaters, their gemstone watches. The environment is safe, and people in the desert enjoy sharing their passions.
Perhaps the most interesting thing to do with the Bovet Recital 16 is adjust the time. Typically such a basic act isn't all that interesting, but here you get the added delight of seeing all three of the time dials moving at the same time. It is a fun view despite being, of course, rather simple. With that said, it is clear that you can adjust all of the time zones at the same time, which will all have synchronized minute hands. That means this isn't the type of watch that allows each of the different times to be totally independently set. Having said that, you'll find that on a travel watch, that isn't necessarily a bad thing.
I mentioned the torx screws, which you'll also find in the bracelet and lugs. These are uncommon in timepieces and give the MilSub a more modern and "tool watch" look, even though you'll need a non-standard screwdriver to remove them. Use of the screws is nice, but I hope it isn't because of them that the bracelet is so thick. I want to be clear on the fact that the OWC MilSub MS-5517 is a very comfortable watch, but having said that, from an aesthetic standpoint, I think the bracelet is a bit too large for the case. First of all, even though the case is thick, the bracelet is also very thick. It also doesn't taper (a look I personally prefer). Non-tapering bracelets aren't inherently a bad thing, but in many instances, when used with a 40mm wide sport watch case (or smaller), you can get into a situation where the width of the bracelet competes with the width of the case for visual attention.
The downside to crowd-funded products is that the items have no guarantees that they will be released on schedule, or sometimes, at all. Delays of months or sometimes years are not unheard of. So, all that is a long way of saying that backing cool projects on Kickstarter is a great idea, but in many editorial aspects, we at aBlogtoWatch will often showcase a good idea if it merits it, but we can't recommend anyone buy something if it is novel until we have seen it in the flesh. In the context of Nevo, I don't actually think they are going to use the modern crowd-funded model, though they are accepting pre-orders for the Nevo smartwatch now, in advance of the 2015 release.
Well, rather "around" a watch. Giuliano Mazzuoli claims to work with Italian stone workers for the production of the Carrara watch cases. In order to strengthen their design and reduce the chances of the stone case breaking, each Giuliano Mazzuoli Carrara case is fitted with a metal inner ring between the case and movement. One of the things that I have come to appreciate with Giuliano Mazzuoli work is his mastery of materials. While not all of his work has satisfied my tastes, I have never not been impressed with the materials, finishes, colors, and textures used in his watches.
The new Junghans Force Mega Solar models are available now, with pricing coming in at ,555. Frankly, if you are only going to have one or two quartz watches, one of them should be an atomic solar model – it will run for a long time with minimal intervention, and it will have the most accurate time of anything in your watch box, coming in handy for setting your mechanicals against, for instance. While most comparable options have been very sporty models, Junghans gives you a more classic look to go with technical precision. junghans.de

Cartier Calibre Diver Watch Review
Mk II watches show up on aBlogtoWatch.com from time to time because we like to cover their unique business model. Rather than dance around the idea of producing watches which are inspired by the past as many brands do, Mk II makes a point of it. In 2002, founder Bill Yao started the company to offer parts and customization services for watches that people wanted to modify. Later, he ended that part of the business to focus entirely on Mk II brand timepieces. The Fulcrum is among his most ambitious watches yet.
