While the reason to purchase such an expensive and exclusive car may be varied and different, there is a constant, and it is that owning such a car and driving it is a lifestyle. You simply cannot drive such a car without sucking dry all the attention where ever you drive it. With only 300 (or so) Bugatti Veyrons ever produced, this is not a car you will likely encounter next time you pull up at your local WholeFoods market, unless you happen to live in the Pebble Beach or Malibu counties.

Time Warp Creations Zymosis Lockdown Watch: Easily The Weirdest Thing You've Seen All Week Watch Releases

Over the last few years, I have been fortunate to be able to experience a wide variety of watches, particularly those that feature some sort of second timezone indication. While these most commonly take the form of a second hand (with or without a moving bezel) to indicate the second time, less common, but somewhat more visually intriguing, are those watches that rely on cities on an outer disc to display the time. This is the route that the latest Frédérique Constant Worldtimer is following.

That is exactly how the Urwerk HIS has been designed to operate - polite, meaningful, and useful responses. Just such an instance might even be the first time you hear the system speak to you. You can give your Urwerk HIS a personal name or insult it, even, and it will continue wanting to assist you. During the Internship Phase, it might even make mistakes, such as lacking tact or social grace among colleagues. The bottom line is that it knows the type of information you probably want to hear and makes suggestions on how to handle it or act. Using your financial information and acting as your assistant, its further purpose is to get things done. What is more important, however, is how the system handles time and calculations - it is a watch, after all.

The MegaWind made its debut in 2013 not just as a new version of the HM3, but also as a complete replacement of the original. While the "first-gen" HM3 had smaller and less visible hour and minute markings, it also had a smaller winding rotor, giving space for a date display that was set into the large, semi-circular opening on the dial side. The MegaWind did away with that indication and, instead, it offered a larger "Battle Axe" winding rotor – another unmistakable MB&F design element.

The Apple Watch Edition also comes with a special box that doubles as a charging station. There are two colors of the box which are blue and a soft, light gray. The boxes are meant to be used as a way to protect your Apple Watch Edition while charging it, or perhaps while traveling as well. There is a Lightning cord port in the back of the box. Apple also includes the standard magnetic charging dock and cable with the Apple Watch Edition - so it basically comes with two charging options, while other Apple Watch models only come with the one charger.

SevenFriday watches represent the type of unexpected success story that I am proud exists in the modern watch industry. Leveraging social media and a more youthful mentality, SevenFriday has created a durable standard for what an accessible, modern mechanical wrist watch can be, and how to make it desirable. Today, I'd like to review the second major collection of watches from SevenFriday, the M-Series. This is the SevenFriday M-Series M2 reference M2-1. We debuted the SevenFriday M1 and M2 watch here in mid 2014. We last reviewed the SevenFriday P-Series of watches here.

At first glance, you might be tempted to think of this as "just another" skeletonized watch – and one that, perhaps, is not as artfully done as others. There is a kernel of truth there: while the German silver plates are decorated, they are not kinetically exciting – however, to stop there is to sell the Zeitwinkel 273° Saphir Fumé short. The unique bit here is, of course, that smoked sapphire crystal that comprises the dial.

First off; I’d like to thank Ariel & team for hosting this great website and giveaway, and TrueFacet for providing a great pre-owned Tudor.

Zenith Pilot Type 20 Grand Feu Watch Hands-On: A True Collector's Piece Hands-On

Although the Calatrava Pilot Travel Time may seem like a strange watch for Patek Philippe to produce, I am far from a Patek purist, and I found it to be entirely charming in person. While it's far from an original design, the implementation is strong, the proportions are excellent and, if you want a sport watch in white gold, I'd certainly recommend seeing the Patek Philippe Calatrava Pilot Travel Time Ref. 5524 in person before passing final judgement.

Today, as news both expected and unexpected, Swatch has introduced what will be its first widely available smartwatch: the Swatch Touch Zero One. What we all expected to see sooner or later – preferably sooner – was a smart / notification / fitness watch to be offered by one of the Swiss watch industry giants. The unexpected part, is that there's a direct link to, there's no other way to put it, beach volleyball. The Swatch Touch has been around for about four years and now, thanks to its trademark tactile control (touchscreen) and larger display area, it is now becoming the vehicle that Swatch uses to introduce its first mass-produced smartwatch.

The Touch Zero One adds a number of features to the curved screen, built-in backlight along with the finger-tap and side-swipe control of the original. The new, very smartwatch-like functions include a touchscreen – which will, presumably, work with greater accuracy and better feedback than the original – as well as "Beach Volley functions" such as a step counter, "power hits" and "power claps."

The geometric crown is one of the signature elements that help make the Cartier Tank... that Tank. While not as bold a watch as say the Cartier Santos 100 (reviewed here), the Cartier Tank MC more than makes a case for itself as a modern dress watch. This version of the Tank MC is in steel, but in my opinion, where the Cartier Tank MC really comes alive is in the much more expensive 18k rose gold version that costs a whopping ,000 more. With that said, if you want the ultimate in iconic Cartier Tank-style watch in the Cartier Tank MC collection, you'll go for the ref. W5330001 in 18k rose gold on a brown alligator strap with a silvered dial.

Arnold & Son CTB Chronograph 'Central True Beat' Watch Hands-On Hands-On

aBlogtoWatch (ABTW): While I am sure many of our readers already know the answer, we need to ask - who are you, and what is your relationship to the watch industry?

In addition to its orientation, the active hour disc reveals a dot on the edge of the disc that points towards the centre of the dial. When in the 'off' position the dot is hidden by the bezel. The dot is a really neat touch as it immediately draws the eye to the time. Without it, the watch would still be clear because of its minimalism, but the curvaceousness of the Arabic font might delay interpretation.

This same vintage look extends to the dial which offers remarkable composure and design abstinence compared to some modern Breitling watches, which, according to some people, go a bit far in terms of textures, fonts, and colors. The only real color breaking up the mostly monochromatic dial of the Breitling Chronoliner is the red-tipped GMT hand. The slightly recessed contrast-colored subdials are slick-looking as well. Also note that in addition to the 24-hour scale on the rotating bezel, there is a fixed 24-hour scale on the dial - allowing skilled users to track three separate time zones with the Breitling Chronoliner.

That last statement has an important implication - which is that the new Oysterflex strap (which Rolex calls a bracelet) only fits on these new 2015 Rolex Yacht-Master watch cases. Rolex is pretty notorious for making it difficult to "part swap" pieces from one Rolex watch to another, and unfortunately, you will not be able to purchase the Oysterflex strap independently.

Jaeger LeCoultre Reverso Classic Small watches

Not all the way toward the end of the high-end part of the spectrum, but certainly closer to it than the center of the line. I would say that going up from from here are the high-end family of quartz movements you'll find in some of the ritzier Seiko dive watches, and from there you go to the very impressive 9F family of quartz movements in the Grand Seiko line. After that, you have the hybrid mechanical/quartz Spring Drive movements. But now I'm getting off topic.

This same vintage look extends to the dial which offers remarkable composure and design abstinence compared to some modern Breitling watches, which, according to some people, go a bit far in terms of textures, fonts, and colors. The only real color breaking up the mostly monochromatic dial of the Breitling Chronoliner is the red-tipped GMT hand. The slightly recessed contrast-colored subdials are slick-looking as well.

The tourbillon system itself features another two axis points which make a rotation each 60 seconds, and then in a different direction each 5 minutes. Across from the tourbillon is a dial for the time, which is so cool because it points upright no matter where it is in its rotation around the dial. I just love that. Then there are the arms with the tiny hand-painted titanium globe, and across from it, a “Jacob-cut” diamond with a registered process exclusive to Jacob & Co. which gives the diamond a spherical case and 288 facets. The globe and the diamond disco ball make a full rotation each 60 seconds.

So what’s so special about the TAG Heuer Monaco V4 Phantom? We are glad you asked. You see, the carbon fiber used in the TAG Heuer Monaco V4 Phantom is a special kind called Carbon Matrix Composite (CMC), and not only is the case made out of this new material, but the seven bridges of its movement are made using CMC too. CMC is formed using a special technique where carbon fibers are placed in a certain direction in the mould and micro-blasted to give it an orderly elegant look that TAG Heuer calls “matte black vertical brushed.” This is obvious if one looks closely at the movement bridges that form the dial. The choice of material is not just for looks; by using carbon fiber for all the main components, the TAG Heuer Monaco V4 Phantom is also light. Furthermore, the extensive use of carbon fiber also encapsulates the essence of this watch very nicely as it was inspired by motor-racing and engines.

Arnold Schwarzenegger has made a brand out of the man that he has created over his lifetime of effort. Come to think of it, at least on an external level, Arnold Schwarzenegger epitomizes the definition of a "man's man." Arnold Schwarzenegger is an archetype of masculinity. He has been on a four decade winning streak, is a self-made made man, and whether or not his tastes fit your own, this is a person who commands respect like very few people living today.
