Victor Marks: You know, I'd still like to have a MKII Vantage. I've got a lot of love for the 1016 and 14270/114270 Explorers, and I do regret letting a MKII Explorer dials-and-hands-homage that was fitted to a 36mm Hamilton get away from me recently. I have a Seiko with a sterile (unbranded) MKII dial and MKII Milsub hands, and there's something very tasteful about it.
Alright, that's enough about the strap. One very great thing about a larger case like on the Longines Avigation is the fact that the dial can be larger as well. Combine that with the crisp white-on-black as we have here, and you have a very legible dial. This is helped along by the appropriately-sized handset (at least in terms of length, as the hands could, perhaps, be a touch wider) that stands out in stark contrast to the dial.
Given the complex shape of the cones, their angled and round surfaces needed to be hand-painted by a specialist, who was able to paint the indices and numerals in a way that allowed for the application of just the right amount of lume while also maintaining a uniform font for all the numerals throughout. Her efforts were every bit worth it: the cones do stand out high and bold from the plane of the case, and legibility of the numerals and stick indices is in fact quite good. One thing about C3 Super-LumiNova is that, yes, it does provide the brightest glow when fully charged, but, in my experience, it lags somewhat behind BG W9 in terms of "glow reserve," meaning that it fades somewhat faster than the blue-ish W9. Nevertheless, the green of the C3 works beautifully with the stealthy black PVD coating of the case.
Let’s discuss the TAG Heuer Calibre Heuer 01 movement for a second. What you need to know is that structurally it is more or less an existing in-house produced TAG Heuer caliber 1887 automatic chronograph movement. However, it has been skeletonized a bit and given some new colors (such as the eye-catching red column wheel) and turned into the Heuer 01. It won’t replace the 1887, but just add some spice to it in models starting with the 2015 TAG Heuer Calibre Heuer 01 watch.
ABTW: I can only imagine how exciting that occasion must have been! What other creations have been highlights for you?
5Hz movements are going to be a bit more accurate over time compared to the more common 3Hz or 4Hz mechanical movements you'll find in most movements. Though, this is less of an issue these days, as the market has proved people are buying watches less for pure accuracy and more as a celebration of craftsmanship. Though, I do think it was interesting, to say the least, that Halda decided to go this route with the movements inside of the Mechanical Module for the Halda Space Discovery. It was able to avoid using a generic three-hand movement, while at the same time, offering something a bit exclusive for the limited edition watch.
Female consumer acceptance of the Apple Watch is extremely important for the smartwatch industry who, until now, has mostly male buyers. Smartwatch companies have, for the most part, failed to convince women that smartwatches are useful, sexy, trendy, and aspirational. If anyone can remove the "geek element" from a connected wearable communications device, it is Apple, and they know it needs to be done right off-the-bat if the Apple Watch is going to be perceived as an object of desire for women.
In conclusion, as opposed to saving these four visually very different and yet thematically extremely consistent releases for the coming years, Omega – to our most pleasant surprise – decided to debut all four at the same time, at Baselworld 2015. The four new colorways of the Omega Speedmaster Dark Side Of The Moon all feature something unique beyond different colors – from bezel materials through dial treatments all the way to the era they are inspired by – making for a total of no fewer than six amazing Omega Speedmaster Dark Side Of The Moon offerings in ceramic – with the original DSotM and the Grey Side Of The Moon included – to choose from. omegawatches.com
The dials/movement plates are in 18k gold as well, and meant to match the case material of the watch. This adds a new harmonious looks to the MB&F LM101 Frost that did not exist with the previous models. It changes the nature of the watch, and these are certainly a bit more "blingy," being gold on gold. I wouldn't call them gaudy, though, as they take on a more traditional look which calls attention more in the sense of visual fascination versus pure status items. I think the MB&F LM101 Frost watches add an interesting look to the brand, even though they aren't what I would call "traditionally MB&F designs." In my opinion, the popularity of the Legacy Machine watches added a new tangential personality to the MB&F brand which is distinct and in some ways separate from its Horological Machine (HM) personality.
The Olio Model 1 smartwatch will initially ship as a limited edition of 1000 pieces with half of those being in steel and the other half being in black-coated steel. Available for pre-order now, the Olio Model 1 Steel Collection will start at 5 and the Olio Model 1 Black Collection will start at 5. oliodevices.com
Buyers will have the choice of a slate grey (above) or light silver (bottom) dial and both feature a bright red seconds hand and matching "36,000 VPH" text. Being an El Primero, the Zenith El Primero Sport rocks Zenith's 5Hz El Primero 400 B automatic integrated column wheel movement. With a maximum measure of 12 hours and a resolution of 1/10th of a second, the 400 B is no slouch, and it finds a natural fit in a watch like the Zenith El Primero Sport.
For 2015, Omega continues to release exciting new watches that are inspired (often directly) by their own history while also serving to debut new technologies or features that make these modern watches so exciting to enthusiasts. The brand new Omega Globemaster Co-Axial Master Chronometer is something that requires a lot to fully explain, but few words are necessary to appreciate the style of this dressy, though still sort of sporty, new timepiece inspired by original Omega Constellation watches - namely those with the so called "pie pan" dials. Omega could not, however, call these watches just "Constellations," because currently the Constellation is a totally different model family (and that might confuse people today, just a little bit). With that said, the technical full name of the collection does include "Constellation." So we now have the 2015 Omega Constellation Globemaster Co-Axial Master Chronometer.
For what I believe is the first time (or it's a rare occasion) Breitling uses black ceramic for the bezel on the Breitling Chronoliner. I am pretty sure there have been some black-cased Breitling models, but I don't recall any that have had steel cases mixed with black ceramic. This follows a trend set forth by many other brands. In this instance, it makes a lot of sense, because this black bezel on steel case combo is something borrowed from Breitling's history. Though in the past, the black bezels were merely painted metal and prone to wear. Black ceramic does not wear off, so the color and shine remain forever, so long as the bezel is not physically broken.
The reason I'm telling you all this is that, while those six pieces in white gold were expected to be priced somewhere around ,000 each, with the Bremont Jaguar MKI and Bremont Jaguar MKII in steel, we are looking at watches that look extremely similar and yet are priced at a fraction (a sixth or fourth of that price, depending on the model) of the limited edition. Let's now see what we have here, exactly.
Jewelry Atelier: Our emphasis is on small boutique brands like Bremont, Meistersinger, Ball, etc. Rather than a specific brand, I think it’s our commitment to offer our customers the best value for the feature set they desire which really sets us apart. Our customers appreciate our breadth of experience and knowledge of the industry. We have a unique background having sold many of the top brands in the industry which allows us to seek out what we believe are the brands which offer the best value.
The latest addition to the DS line-up is the Project X Custom Rolex Daytona DS7. As the brand describes it, "vintage watch enthusiasts will immediately recognize the look & feel of the original iconic 'so called' Paul Newman Rolex Daytona's from the 1970s." Project X has done a similar project some six years ago and they say that has been their most successful edition to date – and it's easy to see why. Original Paul Newman Daytonas have been selling for hundreds of thousands of dollars as resale values skyrocketed on the auction market. And while that price increase is for another discussion, the iconic design of the 70s Rolex Daytonas is something many would like to enjoy, but - tough we need not say this - a lot fewer can afford.
In 1983, Jim Genone created Jewelry Atelier in world famous Carmel-By-The Sea, California. In the ensuing years, the location, name, and ownership have changed, but this remains a family owned and operated business which has been in its current incarnation since 2010. However, they have been selling watches for over 10 years and have a special affection for interesting smaller brands. We spoke with co-owner Ryan Genone whose father was the founder of Jewelry Atelier.
To explain the reasoning behind that unusual name, we have to briefly discuss the interesting way Porsche Design used to operate. For the past four decades, the company had 15 to 20 year-long contracts with watch manufacturers – notably (after working for a few years with Orfina), with IWC between 1977 and 1997, and with Eterna between 1997 and 2012. When that collaboration with Eterna ended, Porsche Design decided to follow its own route and not go into another 15-20 year long licensing agreement with an external manufacturer.
From a design perspective, even though the Tissot Pocket Touch is modern, it feels quite retro-futuristic. The case is thick and bare, reminding me of similar design aesthetics from the 1990s. This is further echoed by the mostly monochromatic color elements. Tissot admits that there is a retro flair to the design which is an interesting take on what is essentially meant to be a modern timekeeping instrument. Of course, because the Tissot Pocket Touch is a pocket watch in style, it comes with a chain attachment. While the design goes well with an outdoors theme, if you try to dress up with this pocket watch I hope you find yourself at the "android's ball."
So, what about the Tissot T-Touch Expert Solar watch itself? The good news is that Tissot returns with a titanium case with available bracelet or various strap options. The style is a bit different than existing T-Touch models, but you can see how they share the same DNA. There are elements I like about the more historic models and elements I like about the new Tissot T-Touch Expert Solar - so neither is a clear design winner, in my opinion.
From a design perspective, the engravings are a nice mixture of the traditional, yet appropriate for the design of such a masculine watch. There is a floral motif - but just a little bit. I do find the designs to be extremely tasteful and like how Panerai was able to find space all over the dial surface as well as the crown. The only place I felt engravings were lacking was on the strap buckle. This would have been a really nice touch to help round-out the experience. Perhaps Panerai will remedy this before the limited edition pieces are delivered.
Manuel Emch, who runs Romain Jerome, has a sharp sense of humor and refined eye for art. His personal tastes are, of course, for items produced in or inspired by the 1970s and 1980s. He decided to produce the Romain Jerome Spacecraft because I think it is a watch he wanted the brand to make. It is a functional piece of art through-and-through, and like most art, it is best when not everyone agrees that they like how it makes them feel. I was recently wearing a Romain Jerome watch (not a Spacecraft) around a group of watch collectors who seemed to be mostly experienced with more traditionally-designed timepieces. The fact that I had a Romain Jerome on my wrist both confused and intrigued them. "Why would Ariel Adams wear a Romain Jerome, of all things?"
