Bulgari's Bold Move To Integrate With Daniel Roth & Gerald Genta Watch Industry News

This watch comes with a great back story. A tale of a man they called crazy. A tale of a man, who probably is crazy, but we can all love him for that. It all started with Romain Jerome and their previous 'lord & ruler,' Yvan Arpa. The watch community generally has the perception that Yvan Arpa is a bit of an... eccentric. One who creates ideas that are pretty wild. Half the time the ideas work, the other times, they most surely don't. One example of a failed idea was an all rusted watch (on the outside) enclosed in a hermetically sealed glass case. The idea was that once the glass was broken, the watch inside was guaranteed to work. To make a long story short, once some wild and wealthy people bought and subsequently broke the glass, the watch did not work at all - having been totally rusted through.

IWC Portofino watches

Last year at Baselworld Universal Geneve presented its Cabriolet watch with the new UG 101 movement. Important to the movement was its use of a micro rotor used to automatically wind the movement (Universal Geneve calls it the "Microtor"). Micro rotors are nothing new, but have traditionally stayed far away from "reasonably priced" watches. I am not saying the Microtor watch is going to be Seiko prices, but it certainly will be within the range of "I could save up for that." While last year's Cabriolet was more of a unique watch with a square flip around case, this year's Microtor is a lot more sober of a looker.

If you look at the lower side of the case you can see the tourbillon cage spinning around. The placement makes sense because as your wrist rests, your can have a nice view of the tourbillon at all times. This is done well. The crown on the right of the watch is used for adjusting the time, and the crown on the left is used to adjust the speed of the time. Mathias Buttet,  founder of the Confrerie Horlogere came up with this idea. He wanted to give people the luxury of speeding up dull moments in life, while slowing down good moments. Who can deny that this is a sweet and pleasant ideal. The concept of symbolically doing this is appealing, but is it 0,000 - 0,000 appealing? Buttet seems to explain that only the ultra wealthy should be able to afford "the luxury of time." Reading this I just smirk, because no matter how much money you have, you can't buy time, or spend it for that matter. That is something equally distributed for all of us. Now if the watch could actually speed up and slow down time... we are talking about a good use of a few hundred thousand bucks.

IWC Portugieser watches

Orient designed the rotating diver's bezel with a quirky style, but it gets the job done. The bezel rotation is on par with the higher-end timepieces available at this price level. The bezel clicks in a satisfying manner with minimal jiggle. It is aligned properly and there is a lume tip on the "60" minute mark. I do think that the numerals are a bit small on the  bezel though, and the intermittent notching on the grips is odd looking. Still, it does make the watch stand out, and you don't easily confuse it with the legion of other Japanese made diver's watches from competitors such as Seiko and Citizen. Orient is certainly the more interesting and the less mainstream of choices among the group.

You can also see that the watch is attached to a number of different types of straps that are alligator, and there are a few with that interesting 3D stacked cube design that feels pretty hip. They are a functional and friendly take on the ultra stylish indy watch for lovers of watches and unique mechanics. Each version of the Hautlence HL-Q (maybe half a dozen or so) is limited to just 88 pieces. Check out more at Hautlence here.

Rolex Date Explorer watches

A thick and wide leather strap is massive at 27mm wide - matching other leather wrist wear with ease (especially for the biker bunch who loves black leather). The buckle is signed with the Dexter Sinister logo. The Hex has character - a lot of it. There is an unrefined wild streak that is almost defined by the red devil's trident chronograph seconds hand (normal second hand on the three-hand automatic model). The chronograph model has a Japanese Miyota  movement with a 60 minute timer, subsidiary seconds hand, as well as a synchronized 24 hour hand (useful for 24 hour time reference and as an AM/PM indicator). Subdials contrast for a good look that aids with legibility - this is one of the best elements of the dial design. Hour markers are luminant filled, while there is a strip of luminant on the hands as well, for easy night viewing. The chronograph Hex watches are available with a  gray or black toned dial.

Replica Jaeger LeCoultre Rendez Vous Night Day

It also makes fantastic marketing sense for Cricket watches to be presented to Presidents by Vulcain. Talk about effective and easy marketing. What a sell that is if you know a few world leaders are wearing the same watch. It is certainly a step up in value from the Jorg Gray 6500 watch that Obama currently wears. The fact that he wears that watch shot Jorg Gray into the stratosphere of success. I don't think the same will happen to Vulcain - even if everyone knows about it. I don't know that Obama has even been seen wearing the watch as is the fact with the Jorg Gray, maybe once his second term in office comes he will switch it up a bit with the watches. The Jorg Gray watch means a lot. Mostly because it is a simple piece that most people can afford and relate to. That is not the fact with the Vulcain Cricket Anniversary Heart watch that doesn't go for lower than about ,500.  From 0 to ,500 (or more) is not an easy move for most people. So Vulcain has the tough task of convincing the more well-off segment that a luxury watch a President owns (and maybe doesn't wear) is a good personal investment. But you know what... at least here in America... Vulcain doesn't market at all. Not even a magazine ad. It would catch attention having a statement like "What can you and the President have in common? This fancy Vulcain watch!" No, they don't do that, and I have a feeling they haven't done things like that since the vintage French ad you see before you. Way to throw away a half-way decent marketing pitch Vulcain. I once visited a watch shop in Germany that sold Vulcain watches. They also sold like antique clocks that didn't seem to work. Those were much more prominently displayed than the Vulcain watches that sat in the back collecting dust. All I am saying is that Vulcain spent 50 years creating this well mannered trend, only to waste it in current times by not sharing it with potential American buyers (and others it seems).

DWATCHes are big at about 46.5mm wide and taller still. Still, the case is curved a bit and fits nicely on your wrist. The case is heavy with a retro styled design that gives it broad, thick looking lugs. You see this in hardcore diving watches from the 1970's. Even the most recent Rolex Submariner watches have revitalized this style a bit. The chunky high grade steel case is given a soft brushed finish (black PVD, sandblasted and polished finishes are also available) and looks like it was given the same smoothing treatment as a pebble you'd pick up on the beach. Integrated into the case is an automatic helium escape valve (also known as a helium release valve, or "HRV") just like you'd find on a Rolex Sea-Dweller. So as not to jab your wrist, the crown is moved to the 4 o'clock position - a good idea. You can see that the screw-in crown is large and easy to use. It has a grated texture that means you can grip it with gloves or while your hands are wet (through you should never submerge a diving watch with the crown unscrewed). The end of the crown is engraved with the brand's signature "D." Together, the case elements give the watch 1000 meters of water resistance. More than you'll ever need.

Last March I was very intrigued by the marketing images of this new Roger Dubuis Easy Diver SED Tourbillon watch with its intense level of skeletonization, in carbon fiber, that looked like tree branches. If you look closely, you can tell that the movement is barley even there. The biggest parts are the one minute flying tourbillon and the mainspring. Surprisingly, the manually wound Roger Dubuis caliber RD 02 SQ3 movement has a 60 hour power reserve (movement bears the Seal of Geneva). One thing that I want to make clear is that the "branches" of the movement are done in carbon fiber - which now makes it clear what you are looking at. I've never seen anything like this before. Like other models in the Easy Diver line, the watch has other carbon fiber sections built in, such as here seen on the sides of the lugs.

Lastly, I wanted to talk about the dial. The most important part of the watch. It is covered in a gently curved sapphire crystal that has been anti reflective (AR) coated on the inside. Each of the hour markers is large and has a rich amount of SuperLumiNova applied on top of a highly polished steel base. It make for a good look. I would have however liked the hour indicator at 12 o'clock to be different looking, but that is a personal preference. The hands are also easy to read and share the high level of polish and luminant coating. I would have liked the the luminant to extend a bit further down the hands though - a small issue. Overall the dial is very easy to read, and has individual minute markers. The center of the dial has a slightly depressed ring that is normally for the hour hand to follow. This is a curious part of the design that frankly took me a while to figure out. At first glance I though the numbers scale was upside down. Meaning that the top of the ring shows "30" and the bottom shows "0." It seems as though it should be the other way around, and then I realized that this scale is meant to be followed by the counterweight arrow on the seconds hand, not the front of it. Using that end of the seconds hand to follow the center ring, it makes sense. Accordingly, the red lightning bolt with arrow as the counterweight of the seconds hand is a nice touch that I enjoy.

There is also the high-end independent watch maker show known as the Geneva Time Exhibition, that I will be attending. Another load of great watch makers will be here including, but not limited to, Alain Silberstein, Linde Werdelin, HD3, Clerc, BRM, Marvin, Magellan, and Pierre DeRoche. I can't possibly check everything out by all the brands, but I will do my best to give you the largest overview possible.

So it was that the first version of the Ocean Diver was not in compliance with the simple need for a high quality product. Sure it was salable, but it was not what Prometheus desired. The difficult decision was made to rewind the clock so to say and start almost fresh. A new series of suppliers and contractors was obtained so that Prometheus could fulfill its promise to those eagerly anticipating the final result. That being an affordable "Swiss Made" watch with a design that fans competed for. Delays plentiful, the limited edition Ocean Diver received its wink from grace, and is now available.
