Replica Frank Muller Gravity skeletion Watches

I am watching a video right now on Swatch's website that is a TV commercial for the Swatch Touch watch. I haven't actually seen it on television, but then again I am not likely watching the right channels. The video is graphical and friendly and MC Hammer's famous song from the early 1990's is playing. Only Swatch changed the lyrics from "can't touch this" to "can touch this." I wonder what percentage of the target demographic recalls or is aware of the song in the first place? This is a watch clearly aimed at generation Y and younger. For me, the song is a distant reminder of grade school.

Everest Horology’s EH-1 installs similarly to any other Rolex Oyster bracelet because the section of the strap that fits between the watch lugs is designed to be a precision fit with the watch head.  Because there is more space for a springbar tool, installing an Everest EH-1 Band is actually easier than installing a Rolex Oyster bracelet. For Rolex wearers accustomed to removing the bracelet for occasional cleaning, installing the Everest strap is a breeze. (A tutorial on removing Rolex straps can be found at http://www.minus4plus6.com/maintenance.htm#removal). Everest’s EH-1 is designed to replace 4.5 Oyster links on a Rolex bracelet and is fitted utilizing the existing adjustments in the Rolex clasp.  Everest Horology found that 4.5 Oyster links fit the majority of Rolex wearers while keeping the clasp centered on the wrist.  If the strap is too short an existing Oyster link can be used to lengthen one side of the bracelet.

Baselworld Best: Timepieces To Watch In 2012 Shows & Events

The Hublot safe isn’t just a safe and a watch winder – but also a stereo. This seems to be a bit of a trend, where high-end “watch winder furniture” seems to include a stereo. It also includes an iPad. There is an iPad dock at the top of the safe that is used to control all of the safe’s functions as well as unlock it. Each of the winding modules is programmable, and you can control the stereo and other functions. Using WiFi you can control the safe with the iPad off the dock as well. Everything is done via a custom application pre-loaded on the iPad. A cool function is the ability to indicate precisely what each watch is and where it goes to have it receive the right amount of turns per day. You can also apparently hook up the Hublot Safe to your home security system. Presumably the safe will hide the watches if the alarm is triggered. Or perhaps messing with the safe will trip the alarm. Dottling really thinks all this stuff through.

Whether you consider tourbillons to be the ultimate in haute horlogerie, or – like me – you think they belong in pocket watches, Breguet’s anti-gravity device remains the yardstick by which watch houses are judged. It should therefore be no surprise that TAG Heuer, a brand feverishly pursuing credibility not just as a manufacture, but one able to produce movements to challenge the very best, has chosen to fit a tourbillon to its latest assault on the state-of-the-art.

As with RGM's other high-end watches, you can usually assume it'll a) have their honest-abe engine-turned dial and b) not be cheap. Both are true here, and this piece is all about the dial as other brands have pieces with 7751 movements.

As a dive watch the Octea Abyssal Automatic comes in a 44mm wide case that is water resistant to 200 meters. It has a rotating ceramic bezel, and an easy to read dial. Of course there is the rubber strap with faceted crystal placed in it near the lugs. The bezel is also lightly faceted for a great look. I like the minimalist use of numeral indicators on the bezel.

For 2012, the Datograph gets a size increase to 41mm wide in case diameter. That is just 2mm more than the original, but the size does matter. Lange doesn't make the largest watches, but they are mostly thick in size which helps them look larger. With size preferences for men's watches up for good, it made sense to offer the same package in a slightly more modern size for today's watch lovers. The case is thick enough to be noticeable at 13.1mm.

The two Poetic Wish watches go together thematically but are sold separately. They also come with special wooden boxes that recreate the dial designs on the boxes in a beautiful way. Van Cleef & Arpels watch presentation boxes are stunning collectors items unto themselves. I hope they come out with a book on this (hint, hint). Van Cleef & Arpels will create a limited amount of the Poetic Wish watches, but I am not sure how many. Word from them was that buying the pair together will cost about ,000,000.

A few months ago Ball Watches & BMW jointly announced that they would enter into an agreement to produce high-end watches from Ball for BMW. I got to see some prototypes and pictures a few months ago but was not allowed to discuss them until now. The relationship marks yet another watch brand plus car maker looking to make cool timepieces to appeal to both watch and car lovers. Will this be a success?
