What does the haute horology world need now? High-end Ralph Lauren watches of course. No less with movements from sibling watch companies IWC and Jaeger LeCoultre, all under parent Richemont Group. The Sporting Collection is my favorite line of new Ralph Lauren watches. I'd certainly "sport" one (cheesy pun), but it is unlikely I'd pay the price. I have a feeling that these watches, while very high in quality, will go the way of Panerai made (also part of the Richemont Group) Ferrari watches. Those started going at half of retail eventually. Just not the right type of marketing. For reference, here is a video of Ralph Lauren watches at SIHH back in January when they first launched.
Such watches are not unreadable of course (just for people who aren't wearing the watch). To compensate for similar colors of black, the watches have different textures and other mechanisms to help with legibility. Part of the 'point' of the watch is making it difficult for people other than the wearer to know what time it is (or what watch they are wearing). I have to admit that a lot of the watches are pretty cool looking. Still pretty easy to read (on your own wrist), you will no doubt get a lot of people saying "hey, what is with you watch? Let me see that." The watch which this Black Stealth limited edition is based on is one of Sinn's newer diving watches, the U1. With a uniquely designed dial and hands, it is certainly of the most fashion (but still functional) oriented Sinn watches out there.
Oddly enough, you need to go to Ralf Tech's dedicated watch site, because their regular site has no mention of their watches. Oh, and their watch site is only in French. Honestly, a lot of their watches are really cool, but I am going to focus on just one right now from their WRX line (Subaru is gonna be pissed about that one) of watches. The main pictured watch is awesome because it has a perlage polished aluminum face. There is also a matte polished (is that an oxymoron?) aluminum face version. Perlage polish creates that pattern of overlapping polished circles that is highly reminiscent of high grade machinery. I've never see this type of polish applied to such an affordable watch, and never to a diving watch yet. If we are lucky, this trend will take root and slowly move in on the reign of carbon fiber faced watch that have absolutely saturated the market.
On the back of the watch is an exhibition caseback with a view into the decorated P-181 mechanical movement and automatic rotor. This is not only one of the sportiest Perrelet watches, but it is totally unique in its looks among competitors. Though there are a few that are thematically similar focusing on modern aircraft. I further think the Perrelet Turbine is a better alternative to the style of the Zenith Defy Xtreme watches that sometimes have a similar theme, but offer less to a wide audience. The Perrelet is a more reasonably priced luxury sport watch, as well has having more daily practicality.
While many companies won't like me saying this, a less than announced fact is that many watch makers these days have some or most of their parts made in China (movements often included). Even many high-end watch makers likely have something in the construction of the watch that is of Chinese origin. One exception are the rare (and expensive) watches with the Seal of Geneva, meaning they are the most Swiss made, "Swiss Made" watches around.
Knowing that we love watches here, below is a guide you to help you in your selection. These do not represent the ONLY brands or styles that are worthy of being such a gift, but are a mere suggestion and starting point for you to conduct your research.
MM: How do you connect your love of opera to your love of watches?
DP: When researching a role, I always look beyond the character and also examine who constructed the piece. While researching the plays of Figaro, I became fascinated by Pierre Beaumarchais. I learned that Beaumarchais was not only a revolutionary writer, whose plays were laced with social commentary much to the chagrin of his counterparts, but also an avid watchmaker. I was shocked to learn that many of Beaumarchais' patents for movements are still utilized today!
From a mechanical level, the watch is nothing totally unique. A thirty minute chronograph in a bi-compax orientation makes for a n attractive dial as well as mechanical movement view in the back. The tough part of this watch was not placing the rotor in the front, it was doing so in a way that did not look silly. On that level the watch is pretty clever. I like how the rotor is carved away to give the chronograph counters an unobstructed view when the watch is in a vertical position. Further, the rotor is placed behind the main hands as to never obstruct them. Rich perlage polishing makes up the dial face which is available in different colors.
Having said all that I think the Maitres du Temps is a luxury watch made for a select few. Actually, I don’t need to say that, as that IS the case. It is not going to be a “design classic.” The watch is more akin to a luxury timepiece built for those of royal demeanor (as I seem to keep repeating, but it is true). You won’t see this watch in a ‘good watch design book’ 40 years from now. You are more likely to see it in a museum, or being auctioned for astronomical prices. Maitres du Temps is creating modern treasures for those worthy of passing down relics or ‘a legacy.’ There won’t be a collectors market, because there will be just a few collectors lucky and wealthy enough to own them. It is a watch for a different class of person. Not necessarily a better or more successful type, but those people to whom aristocracy is a status quo, and not just bygone status of another time, in a different world. Price for the Chapter Two watch will be less than the Chapter One as it is less complicated, and will be for ,000.
The offset second hand at the 6 o'clock position further enhances the rhythmic motion of this watch, by displacing the seconds from the central hour and minute indicators in a subtle twist. Yet another sexy level. A very mythical, unexpected design element that totally works.
The newest Titanic DNA watch from Romain Jerome expressly indicates what it is, "Steampunk." Instead of just hinting at the idea and playing with the concept, this watch has "Steampunk" in the name, and fashions the watch as such. Granted, a lot of the steampunk appointments of the watch are for show only, it still looks pretty cool. The watch starts with an RJ 2 automatic tourbillon movement that has a very cool anchor shaped rotor. The movement is made by Concepto for Romain Jerome and is a new level of luxury being a tourbillon movement that is self-winding.
Taking a bit from Jager leCoultre, the crowns have a little window showing when they are locked down or not. This is intended to prevent you from diving with the crown unlocked (unscrewed). The strap is rubber, and available in black, blue, or red. This is unsurprising from a brand like Nautica, who is actually doing quite well making watches that aren't merely fashion timepiece accessories to go with their clothing line.
Doesn't Pita Barcelona sound like a hip new Middle Eastern and Spanish fusion cuisine restaurant? Sounds yummy. Actually it isn't even edible (darn, but good restaurant idea), but it is rather a spectacular watch brand. Today you'll hear about my favorite watch in their line, the Oceana Diver. This watch just has so much character I am overwhelmed with desire for it. Really.. let me tell you why you should like it too. Oh, and I don't think it has been officially released yet - they have been working on it for a while, getting it just right. The good news is that the watch is supposed to eventually be available in a host of materials and a few colors (highly customizable). Thus, someone could be having this watch in steel, another in a various shade of gold, and still another person might have a platinum Oceana. The watch will also be available in titanium. Interestingly enough the dial, hands, and strap are all customizable as well. There isn't a list of all the available options yet, but it should make for some interesting combinations. The images already looks very tool like, yet have a great avant garde modern design to them. Nearer to launch, you'll be able to customize a Pita Oceana watch on their website directly.

Like most military inspired watches Arctos decided to keep the face simple and legible - which it is. The generous amount of luminant on the dials contrasted against the black face will make it easy to read. Inside the watch is a European automatic mechanical movement - viewable through the caseback window. The screw-down caseback of the watch is titanium as these types of pieces are not wise to construct out of a ceramic material.

Size wise things have grow up a bit, but nothing massive. The steel case is 43mm wide being 48mm including the crown. Pretty wearable, even with the large aggressive looking crown. Retained from the old Aquaracer watches is a similar looking steel bracelet, but there is a newly styled rubber strap. Trying to be different ("Swiss Avant Garde" - Tag Heuer catch line), they have placed a rubber coated bezel with a circular patten that looks pretty neat. I'd have to live with it for a while, but I feel good about the design of the watch overall. The bezel number indicators and proprietary screws on the bezel look equally nice. Legibility has always been a strong point with Tag Heuer and this is no exception. The hands and hour markers do a great job at jumping out at you, making the watch easy to read. Tag Heuer goes back to its claymore sword styled hands for this one. It works relatively well, though I wonder about how it would look with an hour hand that looks a bit different than the minute hand. Speaking of which the seconds hand is really something and ought to look impressive sliding along the periphery of the based. You'll no doubt notice that the date window is placed opposite where it normally is. This is to help balance out the bulk of the crown and make the face and case design look "even." Still, I wonder if functionality suffers and the placement of the date window on the right side of the face is purposeful being the first out of your sleeve for easy reference. There is also a magnifier cyclops over the date Rolex Submariner style.
Soft white Mother of Pearl dials are always a favorite of mine - and now with the Hello Kitty icon subtly stamped upon one, the watch becomes a piece of fun jewelry as well. It's branded, but not in an obnoxious way.
