Hublot Spirit of Big Bang

Breitling

Currently, we only have about 10 pieces available. This was done before the summer holidays in Germany. And we had a launch party in our boutique yesterday. And so far a few has been sold. So we have a couple more we can send NOW(to the few lucky owners)!

But then again - this is just a quartz movement. So it's debatable about the price...

The Sparta 1 Mini comes with two foam bricks. They are in two sizes depending on the size of your watch strap, you'll know which one to use. For me, I used the smaller brick. You can easily squeeze the brick into a closed watch strap or bracelet or close the watch over the brick. The foam material of the brick won't scratch your watches. Placing the brick in the winding unit is easy and it fits in there snugly. I don't worry about it slipping out, nor does it stick inside stubbornly. More expensive unit "house" watches more. This helps protect them from dust and from coming in contact with other things that might damage or cosmetically harm your watch. The Sparta 1 Mini has watch more or less exposed. Again, this is only a problem in certain situations and for select highly expensive watches. If you have a watch that you don't want collecting much dust or needs to be utterly protected, there are closed unit watch winders available - but realize that a "housing" just gives you one more thing between you and your watch possibly making it less convenient to use your watch winder, and watch winders are all about convenience. Also, remember that the same type of winding (via the RotorWind system) is being increasinly used in more and more Orbita watch winders, even the very expensive winders that accomodate many watches - it is just that good of a system.

So does Mr. Obama like his Vulcain Anniversary Heart watch? I'd like to think so. I don't know when he will wear it. In fact I would bet that like many of you, he's never even heard of the company until he got the watch. Oh, and I don't want to hear anything about "it is not legal for him to accept gifts" There are loopholes to that, and I am sure that after doing this for 50 years, Vulcain has found out about them.

Although many treatments and colors are available, PVD is most often used to blacken watches. Physical vapor deposit (PVD) applies a thin layer of metallic particles to the watch surface to achieve the color change. Because the particles are so evenly distributed, the finish of your timepiece remains the same as before the process. In the past few years we noticed a few small companies emerging, who did nothing but blacken Rolex watches and resell them. We even spotted John Meyer wearing a PVDed GMT Master II on the cover of Guitar Magazine. This inspired us to offer this service to our clients and the results have been fantastic.

Aside from that, the watch has the time, two power reserve indicators (one for the watch, and another for the sonnerie). The watch movement is extremely complex with about 850 parts, and manually wound. Of course the movement has a tourbillon - like you had to ask! Apparently Gerald Genta has the expertize to make an automatic version of the movement. But I haven't seen one yet. That ups the parts in the movement to about 950 pieces.

The timepiece design is actually American. The person who designed it is a great designer who I've worked with myself named Russ Schwenkler, you can check out his site right here. Russ has a good eye for watches and other fashionable/functional machines such as cars and motorcycles.

Usability for the watch is good. The chronograph like I said, is easy to read. The hands of the watch could use a little bit of a size increase maybe. This is always a tricky thing. Because if you make the hands on a chronograph watch stick out too much, they obscure the chronograph, and if they are too thin, they are hard to read. The lume on the hands is thin, but existent. The Marvin M103 is not the best timepiece for night viewing, but it is manageable. The watch case is water resistant to 50 meters - enough for a watch like this. The matte black leather strap is a good match for the character of the watch, and tapers from 22mm wide at the lugs down to 18mm near the bottom for comfort. Tapered watch straps tend to be more comfortable to wear - which is why Rolex has been doing it for year with most all their metal bracelets.

Looking at the watch band further, another issue arises. The belt buckle closure. And although it is another icon of the brand - the belt buckle closure looks downright uncomfortable. Though the Marina Watch Collection was introduced at the Cruise Fashion Show, in reality, the wearer will have to still use her hands while wearing this. Imagine resting your hand on a desk - there's the belt buckle, now an uncomfortable indentation on your wrist.

The two new models are the Blizzard 010 and the Aurora 009 watch. The numbers seems to indicate what model the watches are in chronological order. You can tell that GoS is newer, and is careful about releasing models. Both of the watches share the same thick 44mm wide steel cases and have either mesh metal or leather straps. The differences are in the dials. Both employ unique forms of Damascus metal forgery. The Blizzard has a titanium chapter ring cut like jagged teeth that double as the hour markers. There is a small signature circular blade shape that is the subsidiary seconds dial. Really no two of the watches will ever look alike. The blued steel hands are a nice chilly scene to go with the "Blizzard" name. Next is the Aurora 009 watch that has a more classic look mixed with the chemical tones of steel with dark hues and greens. Instead of a titanium chapter ring, the Aurora has titanium cylinders on the dial that make up the hour markers like raised columns.

Thoughts On The Confrerie Horlogere La Clef du Temps Tourbillon Watch Watch Releases

Have you ever been interested in an IWC Portuguese watch but couldn't afford it, or didn't want to spend the money on it? For many people, this superb classic is the epitome of luxury and style, but sometimes it is too much luxury. There are actually not too many similar watches out there (especially when it comes to the non-chronograph versions). So it is a good thing that Jorg Gray thankfully steps in to this niche with the JG1060 line of watches. The  collection has a few varieties, and this pictured version is the Jorg Gray JG1060-20. For lovers of large watch out there who want something more classic in style - this is an ideal choice. The JG1060 watch is a massive 48mm wide! Really nice and big on your wrist. Other versions of the JG1060 range has different colors or slightly different dial designs - all IWC homages.

The real draw is in the fanciful design of the cases and  bracelet. There is a lot of visual stimulation, and an important amount of high contrasting colors for your eyes to dance around at. While the dials aren't the epitome of legibility, they aren't half bad. The gold version is best with the gold hands on the steel toned dial. The watches actually come in steel, rose gold, and platinum (that's right). So you can imagine the price range for the models differs greatly. Not sure that, but there are diamonds involved! Oh yes, you can get these watches decked out - stepping you up that much closer to bling heaven. Thankfully, even on the totally diamond encrusted versions, the dial stays safe from the jewels.

This is holding true for their timepieces as well. As a relatively new extension of the brand, the watches are just a continuation of trends and designs that have already proven successful in their fashion and handbag lines. But one problem that seems to be clouding Gucci watches is that what works for handbags, does not always work for watches.

We start out with learning about what tourbillons are, what they do, why they exist, then why they were "forgotten" for years and years and their sudden comeback. Then we get into why wear a watch at all - not the same as checking the time on your cell phone. Wearing a watch on the underside of your wrist is a topic. Next, fake watches, don't get us started! Wearing your watch at the gym? Then, we talk about the watch industry and watch news (where do you get your watch news).

A watch like this is of the few examples I can think of where I really don't need to explain too much of the movement's intricacies. For one thing, I am not familiar with each exotic method or material used to construct the movement, and second, the view of the movement itself tells you so much. Though I will give you the basics. The watch movement is automatically wound and features a beryllium triple-cam. This almost no lubrication needing compound made cam (look for the gold colored round object in the movement) is the mechanism that helps the linear time retrograde cylinders jump back to their starting position.  There is also a toothed arm that is apparently called a "rack" that is done in a skeletonized honeycomb pattern motif and is visible through the side of the case.  Honeycomb patterns are all over the watch movement.
