With almost a rectangular case and almost a cushion case, the Piaget Black Tie collection is complete having almost a round case. The Gouverneur is a fine timepiece family with a unique style and all that Piaget pedigree (that I know I like). You can even wear it during non-hoighty-toighty tuxedo affairs, and with Piaget being a serious maker of movements, you never have to feel like you are wearing something from a high-end fashion brand. I last want to applaud Piaget for updating their website with prices. Admittedly I don't frequent brand websites enough (given my work), but when I was researching this article and found the watch prices (save for the pricier tourbillons) on the Piaget website - I almost shed a tear of joy. "We've come so far people!" Good of the industry to start sharing a bit more of these - you know - little details. Price for the Piaget Gouverneur starts at ,000 for the rose gold three-hand model, ,000 for the rose gold chronograph, going up to ,000 and ,000 for the white gold with diamonds versions of those pieces respectively.

I've mentioned before how the Ceramic XV watch was water resistant to 300 meters, then the Engineer Hydrocarbon Spacemaster from 2013 was rated to 120 meters, and now this Hydrocarbon Black model is water resistant to 300 meters. They all have the same case so I really don't understand what the deal with the new Spacemaster is. It really begs the question if Ball is just putting a lower water resistance rating on the Spacemaster to help differentiate the models more. When it comes down to it, the Engineer Hydrocarbon Black and Spacemaster are only separated by a DLC coating, different dial, and different movement.

Our culture works in the same way, with people talking about and treating the time much like how they read it. Is your day measured by hand placement cycles or chronometrically measuring how many minutes are left in the day to get things done? Most people are increasingly doing the latter as digital time telling is more prolific these days than analog watch and clock dials (at least outside of watch lover circles). Related to that I find it very sad that here in the US we have tons and tons of non-operational analog clocks in public. They are much more depressing than seeing broken payphones.

General Norman Schwarzkopf served considerably in Vietnam, continuing to rise in military rank. In the 1970s he first achieved the rank of General. In the 1990s he led the US forces in the Persian Gulf during the Gulf War. It was an extremely decisive victory, taking the US military only about 100 hours to gain control over the region and ejecting the Iraqi forces from Kuwait. It is during that time that General Norman Schwarzkopf wore the two watches. Check out an excellent video presentation by the General on how we so easily were victorious in the Gulf War from the early 1990s.

In a nutshell, the Rolex Milgauss was introduced in the late 50's when electricity, electronics, aeronautics, and nuclear engineering was bringing about what we now call the technology and information revolution.  As a species, we had just discovered the power of the atom, we were finally in a position to leave mother earth (albeit for short periods of time), and the amount of innovations around transmitting, storing, and transforming information, created a series of revolutions that would forever change mankind.

Omega isn't officially talking about the Omega Aqua Terra Chronograph GMT yet so we didn't get the precise size. Though, it is about 45mm wide, wearing large on the wrist but a bit thinner than say, the Planet Ocean Chronograph. I personally prefer the Planet Ocean in its three-hand or GMT form, and believe that if you want an Omega with a chronograph, it should be an Omega Aqua Terra or Speedmaster.

Now, the HM4 Thunderbolt goes out with a model simply called the "Final Edition." The anticlimactic name halts the limited production model with an all-black version that has hoods over the time and power reserve dials to hide them from uncouth onlookers. I mean really, how dare people try to read the time off MY watch without asking? Hooligans...

"Some info to add to the story; although one would surmise that Romney would not buy Nixon for himself, the story goes that he did, in fact, purchase the watch himself. Romney owns a home in La Jolla, CA (a beach and surfing community) and we were told that he bought the watch at Mitch's. Mitch's is a surf shop in La Jolla. It's a small but highly popular shop and an essential retailer for the area. Mitch's has been in business since the 60's. We were told that Romney himself was in the shop and bough the watch; as it's located nearby to his home."

Braun BN0095 Watch Review Wrist Time Reviews

In contrast to the often minimalist look of other Piaget Black Tie watches, the Gouverneur is more busy in its approach. While it is not a 1950's era design, it does seem to have that era's hallmark fascination for sunburst displays and dauphine hands. It is actually a very retro design without feeling at all retro. You saw elements of this sunburst design in a more complex form in something like the Piaget Emperador Coussin Tourbillon (which was a rather spectacular thing from a mechanical standpoint), as well as many other Emperador and Emperador Coussin models. While the Gouverneur has redundant markers on the dial, they are all there in the name of style, and I think they work best on the three-hand models. Those models seem to have the right mix of complexity and breathing room. By the way, the three-hand models contain Piaget's well regarded in-house made 800P automatic movement that is visible through the sapphire caseback window. Finishing on the movement is as always, pretty sexy and is has a power reserve of 80 hours (pretty good for a 4mm thick movement).

The end result is a beautiful watch which features a simple but elegant design that pays tribute to Hamilton's American roots.

Handwinding is one of the pleasures of being a watch person. Nice and smooth, with the definite stop characteristic of a pocketwatch. Similarly, the monopusher is smooth and definite, with hands snapping back to zero. The symmetric dial design is impeccable, and that awesome monopusher kinda lets you sneak a sport watch into a dress watch design. Hold it up to your ear for trip back in time; nice loud and slow tick-tock. Very tactile.

"One of the most common things I steal are watches" says renowned pickpocket Apollo Robbins. The famed master thief talks to New Yorker writer Adam Green in a new video and article discussing his honed craft. In the video Robbins demonstrates with incredible ease and agility how he is able to deftly remove a man's watch right off his wrist without suspicion.
