Overall I like Bathys a lot. There are lots of little touches and character in the watch that make it more interesting that you average Tag Heuer diver watch for example. The Bathys Benthic Ti watches retail for 5 with the automatic models (with steel cases going for more). If you want to learn more or get one, you can do so directly at Bathys Hawaii's website here.

You'll notice the large crown that is located at 4 o'clock, very typical of Japanese diving watches. The crown here is large and easy to use, with really massive guards on the sides of it. The crown has the Orient logo laser etched on it. I would have preferred it to be engraved, but again, a little thing. The back of the watch is engraved though - also typical of high-end Japanese diver's watches. Oh, and if you are not familiar with the watch, you should know that it comes in a striking orange faced version as well.

Next for Seiko is working to share with people outside Japan what they have been doing for decades. While it may be late, Seiko has finally decided to share themselves with the world. You’ll be hearing more impressive things about Seiko, and more importantly, you’ll have access to some of these fantastic timepieces that mostly only Japan has been able up until now. The first step is the new Ananta line of luxury Seiko watches that will beat your expectations.
To operate the 5 minute repeater you depress the pusher located on the bottom of the case at 6 o'clock. The watch will then play back a melody that you decipher to determine the time. Pretty nice. Getting automatic minute repeater watches is very hard as they are quite rare (most are part of manually would movements) - Nivrel of course being an exception. The watch case and strap buckle are in 18k pink gold, with the case being 38mm wide and 13mm thick. The crown for the watch is in an "onion" style and located at 2 o'clock. Both the crystal on the front and rear are sapphire and anti reflective coated. The black straps are crocodile. These watches from Nivrel are a perfect rendition of a classically decorated 5 minute repeater watch with the convenience of an automatic movement and the luxury of a gold case and rotor. Plus, the price of about ,000 isn't cheap relatively speaking, but is an excellent value compared to comparable watches.

In the video Biver gives us a few hints about the future of Hublot. Namely "manufacture." We know that Hublot is gonna get its own movements to go inside of its watches already with price points as though they already do have their own movements. So in maybe 3-5 years we will start to see something new from Hublot. All that bangin' Big Bang success has been able to fund some serious expansion and deserved ambition by Mr. Biver. He also talks about some of the peripheral things that they haven collaborated on. Like the Hublot bicycle or skis. I have a feeling that these products are only branded Hublot, without and of their design, which is probably good. Why then, is it fair for him to talk about them like they are Hublot products. What the hell Biver, you talk about them however you like, I still like the watches!
