I found Roger Smith himself truly a personable character, open and willing to explain everything that I wanted to know about him and about his watches. I found him as well, a man on a mission in what he had set out to do, and doing it in an extremely principled manner in the way that he had chosen to make his watches.
This is not De Bethune's first go at a watch with this overall look but I feel that the way in which they have minimized the impact of the time and moon phase display has allowed additional dial real estate (and visual attention) to be invested in the nature of the design. Not only will the DB28 Skybridge be a perfectly functional and reliable dress watch, but you have to assume there is a sense of occasion when you choose to wear a watch like this. While not a simple-looking watch, the De Bethune DB28 Skybridge does offer a distinctive and enchanting wrist presence that would be sure to rival anything else in your collection.
Neither Casio nor its ProTrek (formerly Pathfinder) line of outdoor watches need any introduction. On aBlogtoWatch we've listed these timepieces as among the ultimate survival watches as well as some of the highest-value watches when it comes to bang for your buck. Casio continues to raise the bar with more features and designs each year. ProTrek watches should be a staple of any watch diet. Up for grabs is a Casio ProTrek PRG550 (specifically a PRG550-1A1). In a stealthy black case, this analog/digital ProTrek model has a Tough Solar movement, triple sensor array (compass, barometer, and altimeter), and a host of other features.

Ordering began last week and the first watch ships out this month. This edition is limited to 125 total pieces with around half of the pieces already accounted for. Additionally, all Harbinger owners will receive a lifetime discount on all future pieces from Refined Hardware, such as their upcoming ‘Carbon Tourbillon’ and ‘Bronze Diver.’ Check out the website for more information.
Add to that the fact that the Emergency didn't have enough power to send the signal up to a satellite, but only to relatively nearby search and rescue teams, the bottom-line was that while it was a useful device to have, it was not the be-all-and-end-all solution of a truly global distress beacon.
Watches used to be small, like really small. In the early days of the wristwatch, men’s watches were just around 32mm in diameter. Can you believe that? Today, most men’s watches begin at 40mm and more and more watchmakers are offering watches that are 45mm and above. Interesting then, how watches have grown, but is this a trend or is it a natural evolutionary process that is here to stay? Your guess is as good as mine.
One problem encountered during testing was female response to wearing a watch during intercourse, let alone looking at it after sex. However, making the watch comfortable for both parties proved less difficult than making it romantic. The ultra-light case of the Thrustograph is made from high-end materials and is 100% hypoallergenic. Like the Nadal watch, Richard Mille wants the Thrustograph to barely feel as though it is there. "We don't want it to feel like a third wheel in the bedroom." It is also carefully designed to have smooth edges and nothing that will catch on hair. Plus, "no cold metal here" says Mille. Even at room temperature, the timepiece does not feel chilly to the touch. "We like to think of it as an extension of one's self."
The Kantharos uses the same case and aesthetics of the Christophe Claret Blackjack 21, Baccarat, and Soprano watches. It looks like the brand will settle on this case design and dial style for a while to come. While we have just one picture at launch, the Kantharos will be available in five versions. Pictured is the black titanium model, but other versions will includes cases that mix titanium and various tones of gold. The case here is 45mm wide and looks quite sporty for a high-end collector's watch.
In this article you see two distinct versions of the Son of Sound watches. One with a double retrograde dial with the hours and minutes, as well as a second version with chronograph. Each of the watches has high-end mechanical automatic movements, apparently co-developed by Concepto and SC2. These easily could have been quartz-based and it is interesting that ArtyA decided to go so high-end with them. Good watches to wear while showing off your gold and platinum record collection mounted to the walls of your mansion for guests?
Earlier setting mechanisms utilized a series of fragile gears to engage the function. Essentially, movement design necessitated an intertwined calendar function that tied up energy from the barrel and made changes to each function separately and over the course of a few hours. Manually adjusting these settings during the time of day when the mechanisms were engaged could adversely affect the movement – and even break it outright. With the 66R9 movement, the functions are built with a clutch-like mechanism for each complication that enables changes to be made independently and instantaneously without any damaging repercussions through the movement. And all of this is operated from the under-lug corrector levers.
Case material: Platinum 950
Strap/bracelet: Alligator Leather
In honor of what made Chanel watches so popular, the dial of the Première Tourbillon Volant is done with a piece of polished black ceramic. Note how the sapphire crystal over the dial has beveled edges. What I like about the watch is that despite the fact it is heavily about being covered in diamonds, it does not appear that way at first glance. The mostly minimalist dial is stark and attractive, focusing on the hands and tourbillon. Even though they do have diamonds, it is not meant to be a blindingly shiny timepiece. Once you look at the case from other angles, then you start to see the delicate stone work.
An instantly recognizable brand name to those in the know, RGM manufactures high-quality American timepieces in Pennsylvania’s Lancaster County. RGM’s commitment to excellence in design is apparent across their whole range – from their basic three-hand models to their epic tourbillons. Most cases and components are manufactured in the United States, and are hand assembled. RGM just announced their third entirely in-house movement, Caliber 20, to celebrate their first twenty years of American Watchmaking. 00-0,000+rgmwatches.com
The automatic movement inside the watch is an RW 4600 caliber which is a modified ETA 2824 movement to include day, month, and moon phase complications. The transparent case back shows the sparsely decorated movement. The automatic rotor includes the caliber number and the RW name.
I have always been interested in compass watches in some form or another due to a latent survivalist mentality that wanted to anticipate what equipment I would need in a disaster scenario. Aside from food and water, a compass watch would always be in the mix, so that I could, in my hypothetical emergency, find my way somewhere to safety.
The Panerai Luminor 1950 Regatta 3 Days Chrono Flyback Automatic Titanio is Panerai at its best. Excellent dial design, a thoroughly impressive movement and a feature set that is practical, legible and easy to use. Backed with 100m worth of water resistance and an anti-reflective sapphire crystal, the Regatta should be ready for your day at the races whether you're actively racing or simply spectating from the shoreline. The 47mm case is too large for both my wrist and my tastes, but I still really dig the Regatta 3 Days and cannot fault anyone who falls for this incredibly cool ,000 chronograph.
For me, this was my top watch pick at the 2013 SIHH show at Jaeger-LeCoultre. No, it wasn't the most technically innovative or outstanding watch, but it was on a short list of timepieces that in my opinion are desirable and also come with a price that is within the realm of accessibility. I can lust after a Gyrotourbillon 3 for years but that won't bring me (as well as the majority of other watch lovers) any closer to being able to afford it. Pieces like the Deep Sea Chronograph Cermet, and other versions have that Jaeger-LeCoultre prestige, in-house made movements, and a price that is something we could conceivably save up for, and that is why I get much more excited about pieces like this.
