The Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph LeBron James Limited Edition watch is in fact a very subtle experiment when it comes to AP's limited edition fare. It is nevertheless unique, but we don't see Audemars Piguet playing with a lot of new design features. We do however see a sort of novel mixture of elements they've used before, and a true homage to gray and gold as the 44mm wide Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph case is done in 18k pink gold and titanium.

Each Augustus I watch will be made to order per the specific wishes of each customer. That is natural because there is no way for Lang & Heyne to make the watch without knowing the the 12 events and their dates. To that effect Lang & Heyne has claimed that they will produce perhaps three Augustus I watches each year. The concept of how the watch works is relatively simple, but explaining it is a challenge mostly because their press release reads like East German shortwave radio instructions.
Why am I mentioning golf when discussing the new Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra collection that was founded on dive watch principles? Well, the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra has become its de facto dressy sports watch and the model they choose to associate with their golf ambassadors such as Rory McIlroy. In Omega's latest TV commercial, they focus on Rory playing golf... in what looks like a quasi-desert landscape. On his wrist is the new "golf version" of the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Master Co-Axial with a green seconds hand and and metal bracelet. This version of the Aqua Terra Master Co-Axial is also available with a very nice looking Barenia brown leather strap.
These seemingly waving "lines" which connect the two furthest points of the frame are the blades and their sole duty is to lend the pivoting motion of the pallet fork the exact same momentum, time after time, 6 times a second, every second of every hour of every day. The brand's video demonstration of last year still applies and beautifully illustrates the snapping motion of the blades.
I have high hopes for the Montblanc Meisterstück Heritage collection of watches that came out this year at SIHH 2014. We've discussed it before, and today we'd like to look at the elegant looking Montblanc Meisterstück Heritage Moonphase watch model. This simple timepiece has the time, lacks a seconds indicator, and has a subsidiary dial with the date and a moon phase indicator. In a sense, this is a scaled down triple calendar watch, as it lacks windows indicating the the month and day of the week.
Remember the Twist-O-Flex watch bracelet? I remember I had a Swatch with one of these. These were essentially flexible bracelet straps that could twist and easily fit just about any wrist. Interestingly, one of the companies responsible for the early popularity of these bracelets is still around and continues to make such bracelets and watches. We decided to pay them a visit to have a chat.
Last year, Girard-Perregaux amazed the world with its Constant Escapement L.M. watch. It is not everyday that one sees a whole new escapement design, much less one that was designed to work as a constant force escapement and one that was crafted out of high-tech silicon. This year, Girard-Perregaux is offering its breakthrough watch in pink gold and we thought it was a good chance for us to get reacquainted with this breathtaking watch.
Are there too many automotive-themed watches out there? That is a good question. Some might suggest there aren't enough. As I write this article, I am in the midst of considering the strong correlations between why people love cars and why they love watches. What you might consider an easy "given" is that watch lovers often also like cars–what is more difficult is how to wrap that shared interest up into a satisfying timepiece.
The cushion style steel case is perhaps one of the most desirable as well as distinctive elements of the Eterna Heritage Military watch design - and the new model has a case very similar to that of the original. Eterna wasn't clear on the size of the 1939 original, but you can imagine it was much smaller than the 40mm wide size of today's Eterna Heritage Military watch. The case, in steel, is very well finished and the unique angled sections of the bezel look very cool, I must admit.

Glashütte Original Seventies Panorama Date Watch Review
I typically don't prefer manually wound watches, but for interesting and beautiful creations like the Lambda I can make an exception - especially when they are designed with a long power reserve and easy to read power reserve indicator. Germans understand very well how to extract a lot of function from a pretty design, and that is one of the reasons people appreciate Nomos as much as they do. The Lambda is also very much a dress watch, but certainly not in a stubbornly traditional manner. That often means no lume (which is true in this case), but the trade-off is a bit of extra style.
Set in a 44mm wide case there will be three initial versions of the Skylab. It appears to have a case with a similar design to that of the original Moon Dust DNA but perhaps a bit more simple in its look (notice the new crown design). This is the first fully skeletonized Romain Jerome watch, but there have been prior pieces with semi-skeletonized dials offering a view into the movement. With a piece like this you have a movement sandwiched between two pieces of sapphire crystal and you can see all the way through with ease.
Having said all that, comparing Swiss tourbillons with a Memorigin tourbillon watch is sort of silly. Memorigin understands the communicative and artistic value that a tourbillon has. For them playing around with the concept is more fun than trying to beat the Swiss at their game. In fact, the last time I checked, Memorigin only produces watches with tourbillons.
With both a chronograph and a dual time feature, the 5990 makes about as strong a case for practical versatility as is possible from a ,300 USD watch. Really though, the price shouldn't be surprising and the 5990 will almost certainly be a very popular watch for Patek in the coming years and will likely make it's way onto many a watchnerd's grail list. The 5990, along with it's other new steel sibling the 5960, show that Patek Philippe is serious about their steel-watch offerings and, despite what we predict will be a very limited supply of both of these new models, is willing to produce watches with true mass-market and enthusiast appeal. patek.com
Lang & Heyne Augustus Watch Hands-On

Lang & Heyne Augustus Watch Hands-On
Jeff Kuo (JK): I am the founder of Xetum, which offers a collection of modern automatic watches, designed in California and made in Switzerland.
As you can imagine, this is especially complex from a planning and execution standpoint as they are not simply cutting away excess metal from an existing movement, but rather organizing all of the essential aspects of a movement so that the design promotes a view of the mechanical elements while still offering a functional and legible display.
The aBlogtoWatch team has just returned from the 2014 edition of the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie watch trade show in Geneva - otherwise known as the SIHH. If you aren't already aware of what this show is about; it is one of a few major watch trade events each year where new products are debuted. SIHH is operated by the Richemont Group and a few other participating brands. There are about 16 brands that show there. The other major Swiss watch trade show is Baselworld that happens later in the year around March - and a lot more brands present there. SIHH is an important event and helps us understand what some of the major luxury brands are doing, and what their focus will be for this year and beyond.
On to the watch! This is, by modern sensibilities, a larger watch, just on the cusp of what I consider to be comfortably wearable. The stainless steel case comes in at 45mm in diameter. While it's not as thick as some divers I've recently reviewed, it's not the thinnest of watches either. The domed mineral crystal (AR coated on the underside) also contributes to this height as well. It wasn't a problem slipping it under a cuff, but it can be a snugger fit. The watch comes in at a weight of only 126g, so this isn't one that you'll feel weighed down with.
TAG Heuer and aBlogtoWatch hosted a special event to close-out 2013 at their new Silicon Valley boutique in San Jose. Since I am local, Ariel asked me to proxy him and MC the event as I can virtually bike to that store and have been there when it first opened to add a rubber strap to my Grand Carrera 36 RS Caliper.
Regardless of the selected approach, he will never use computer-aided design software, but rather creates stick prototypes to help calculate the distances, dimensions and the geometry of the piece at hand. Seeing how complex, and yet how sublimely balanced the functioning of his sculptures are renders this "choice" all the more impressive.
