World of Watches is Going Sunglasses Crazy: Huge Sales on Top Shades.

Everyone wants to get in on smart watches and the Michael Bastian MB Chronowing is one of the more interesting smart watches we have seen. Michael Bastian is an American designer who has spent time in labels such as Tiffany & Co. and Polo Ralph Lauren, so he clearly knows a thing or two about watch design. In fact, the MB Chronowing even looks like a cross between an IWC Ingenieur and Hublot Classic Fusion. Whether this is a good thing or not, we leave up to you. But looks aside, how does it hold up? Ariel offers his thoughts.

Like I said, the system is elegant and simple, and very easy to understand and operate. The way Vogard mixes up the various models that feature the Timezoner complication is by playing with the dial as well as the bezel. There are a range of themed versions of the watch, with bezels that have standard reference cities, the names of major golf courses, shopping destinations, etc... Vogard even places a small "s" next to those cities that observe daylight saving times.

World of Watches’ Best-Seller Spotlight: Swiss Legend

JW: Ever since I was a little kid. I remember getting a Citizen red LED watch for Xmas when I was seven, and thinking I was way cool. Also, my dad always had cool watches I admired. When visiting my grandparents, the best adventure was always to hunt around in the attic of their old farmhouse - tons of neat old stuff up there.

The new Graham Geo.Graham The Moon in white gold will come with a matching black crocodile strap and will be limited to just 8 pieces, and will be priced at $295,000.

Botta Design UNO 24 Neo Single Hand Watch Watch Releases

The simple three-hand dial is immediately “Cartier” in style but here matches black Roman numerals with black - versus blued steel - hands, which we find to be rather sharp looking. Inside the Clé is an in-house made Cartier automatic movement with traditionally laid out central seconds, hours, and minutes hands. This is a bit distinctive from the layout of the also in-house made 1904 MC movement which has a subsidiary seconds dial. Going back to the “key” part of the watch’s name, Cartier developed a pretty cool new crown for the Clé, which they say is inspired by the winding keys from old clocks. While not round, it is simple to use and has a nice turning and locking action which is difficult to describe, but very pleasant in its operation. Cartier even offers a new bracelet design which has thin links and is very comfortable. In the end, the Clé is yet another tasty flavor of Cartier watches for mainstream luxury consumption which adds to the brand’s existing portfolio of attractive models. The 2015 models in only gold are priced accordingly (which is a lot, with the optional bracelets), but be sure to keep an eye on the evolution of the Clé as Cartier likely adds steel models in the future. Priced at ,000 in 18k white gold.

Having said that, not all watches are created equally, even though timepieces made today are far more durable than ever. When it comes down to it each individual watch has its own level of durability, and watch brands and retailers should be aware that consumers need to be notified how to wear their watches.

Normally, a concept like this would not really appeal to me, for much the same reason that I am generally not a fan of single-handed watches: I like to know the exact time that I am at, not some vague approximation. With this watch, it is something of a different beast. It adds an extra element of surprise to looking down at your watch to determine how much time has surprisingly slipped away – and you can also always have the accurate, two-hand indication when you need it.

Watches That Wow!

MB&F HM6 Space Pirate Watch Hands-On Debut Hands-On

There are some people who might not understand the concept of a three axis tourbillon, so allow me to explain a bit. Of course, the best understanding will come from viewing the video. First of all, we are not talking about three different tourbillons. There are some watches (such as from Roger Dubuis and Greubel Forsey) that have multiple tourbillons. Rather, we are talking about a single tourbillon that rotates on three axis points - versus one axis point.

Of course aftermarket customers could just remove the Rolex name off the dials of the customized Rolex timepieces, but that would be really eroding at the whole concept, wouldn't it? In regard to George Bamford, "Rolex" is really very much part of the point. While Bamford Watch Department certainly does customize non-Rolex watches (mostly Audemars Piguet and Panerai), somewhere between 80-90% of their work is on Rolex timepieces.

the Speedmaster Tintin Revisited

Making a prototype watch isn't easy, but harder is getting to the point of having production partners and suppliers which will take your timepiece from concept to reality. Fiona was perhaps lucky to be a part of an established design department at a well-respected school - a gateway to necessary contacts. Even then, it was through kindness and luck that she was able to get the right contacts necessary to make the Fiona Krüger Skull watches a reality. The truth is that, unless you have "an in" at many Swiss watch making suppliers, etc... their doors will be mostly closed to you. Fiona Krüger gave special thanks to Peter Speake-Marin.
