The Fonderie 47 Cufflinks are a shining example of the type of things that Roland can dream up. And as far as I know this is the only item that he has produced which has a purely aesthetic function. In short this is a men’s bracelet that transforms into a pair of cufflinks. You can then combine them again to be a wearable bracelet. I should note that these are not the first pair of cufflinks that Roland Iten has designed.
According to Tissot the Sea-Touch abides by European EN 13319 diving watch norms for legibility, water resistance, anti-magnetism, shock resistance, durability, and other properties. This with 200 meters of water resistance means that you can not only dive with the watch, you should. According to Tissot the recommended maximum dive depth with the Sea-Touch is 100 meters. Perfectly fine with me, especially as earlier T-Touch models were known to have water resistance issues. The watch has slits in case back for air and water to enter to reach the sensors.
In honor of Monaco, the city that will host the Only Watch 2011 charity watch auction, participating brand Romain Jerome has come up with this special piece unique watch. The dial is a piece of rock based on the stone that Monaco was literally built on - they call it the "Rock the Rock DNA" watch.
If I were a brand making watches I don't how I would react to the prospect of making a single watch to donate for charity. On the one hand it is fun. You can design and develop a watch without much regard for marketability. On the other hand, you still need to built the watch. Designing a new case, dial, etc... is expensive. For this reason you rarely see brand new movements in watches here. I think that only DeWitt offered such a creation. Making a new case is expensive and time consuming enough. People sometimes don't get how much work and expense goes into just the machining necessary for a new case design. None of that matters this night though.
Starting a new watch brand these days is a tricky endeavor. No one I've spoken to in the last few years who was part of starting a new line of timepieces mentioned money being their primary motive. That isn't to suggest that these aren't profit ventures, but rather that it takes a certain sense of drive and artistic desire to do what is necessary to bring a watch brand to life. John Isaac is just such a brand. It popped up recently with some interesting ideas and eye-catching designs. My favorite part is seeing how new ideas and new people add life to my favorite world.
On one side of the Antikythera was a sort of Earth-centric solar system. It has the Earth in the center with the moon going around it (which also spun between a light and dark side to show the phases). The is also a sun indicator that actually pointed to zodiac markers, which in the modern version has been incorporated with a month indicator. The scales also show a constellation chart, as well as another scale for the Egyptian calendar (which was 365 days long). Indicators around the dials showed what might be ways of determining what stars would be visible in the sky.
Jorg Gray's JG9500 collection has a range of three-hand and chronograph watch models with healthy sport demeanors. Inside the watches are Swiss quartz movements, and the cases are 44mm wide in polished to black-coated steel. Retail price is 5.
Movement decoration and engraving is a big deal at Blancpain. This year they announced a new collection of limited edition pieces with city scenes engraved on the movement surface. A few watches (each totally unique) will be engraved for Blancpain boutiques around the world. I sat with Blancpain’s engravers and designers as they looked at photographs of cities for inspiration. One gentleman was looking at pictures of buildings in New York City. He uses these to create drawings of proposed scenes that might make their way on to watches. The drawings are handed to Mr. Hayek who makes the final decision on what drawings will be realized in engraved form. It is a tough decision as each engraved scene takes hundreds of hours to hand-engrave under a microscope on the movement surfaces and bridges. It is trying work and the people at Blancpain are some of the best.
Behold the HM3 Frog Zr, aka "Black Frog," the newest highly limited watch from MB&F - there will only be 18 pieces. Unless I am mistaken, this is the first watch offered by the boutique brand done in zirconium (hence the Zr part of the name). Zirconium is a rare metal similar to titanium, but known to be more robust. According to MB&F, most zirconium is used in nuclear reactors and high-tech aerospace applications. There are a few high-end watches that utilize the exotic metal, and now MB&F has an interesting piece imbued with Zr.
Student groups were to compete against one another, with each group's result being a few designs. Tag Heuer would reserve the right to actually produce the watches. Produce them if they liked the watches of course. The pictured three watches were the winning models. These were the best. Will Tag Heuer make them? Does Tag Heuer want to make them?
I love this watch, but not everyone will. Some people might not get it - but the beauty is crystal clear to me. This watch was announced last year and was a curious release for Chopard. Part of the larger Mille Miglia collection, this watch combines Chopard sexiness with Superquartz geekiness - something that is really hard to find.
It would have taken years to fully compute and study each of these scales and cycles to indicate them properly. Not only that, but the sheer precision needed to construct the device requires technology that most of us don't give credit to the ancients for having. The existence of the Antikythera mechanism really calls into question what we know about the ancient world, and makes you wonder just how much knowledge was lost.
Inside the watch is a new movement called the caliber H31. The movement is made by ETA exclusively for Hamilton and it has 60 hours of power reserve. Nothing wild here aside from some standard tie-in branding on the back of the watch. Honestly, I would much rather prefer to have Harrison Ford's smiling face on the back of the watch - that would be pretty nice actually (but lord the licensing costs from Ford's people!). Price for this urban off-road good looker is ,895.
I like the 'aged lume' version; it's also available with plain white, pepsi bezel, etc.
New version of the Konstantin Chaykin Lunokhod is a topic - Ariel thinks it's better than the one he wrote about earlier.
