MB&F doesn't apply frost-finishing to the movement but, rather, to just the dial. Come to think of it, I can't think of any other watches that have dials with this finishing. I wonder if there are others out there. For watch collectors, the design is reminiscent of antique pocket watches from the era of Abraham-Louis Breguet. I've seen this finishing on his watches as well as those on pocket watches and other timepieces from some of his contemporaries. MB&F makes a very literal "legacy statement" for the MB&F LM101 Frost by applying this finishing to the dials.

Nick, Giles, and the team at Bremont have decided not to dwell on this recent kerfuffle either. As Nick said to me in a recent interview, “We make mistakes every day, and we learn from them.” To anyone who has met with them on this issue, it is beyond clear that they have taken their lumps, made their apologies, learned from the situation, and moved on toward their end goal.

The price for the Konstantin Chaykin Carpe Diem is €60,000, which is quite a lot for a watch with a relaxed attitude towards timekeeping, but arguably a fair amount for a functional work of art that references the past of the industry as well as the future of the wearer. It is ridiculously profound and profoundly ridiculous. But it is beautiful in its own well-defined way and a very welcome addition to horology's ever-growing catalogue of curiosities. konstantin-chaykin.com

Watch De Luxe: We have been a major partner every year of the prestigious Opera Ball event, but in the last few years, that event has not been organized. Now we participate in events sponsored by brands which we represent. Furthermore, while we, as a shop, do not sponsor an event, we do organize our own events usually within our store. On these occasions, we invite collectors and enthusiasts, and we always focus on a single brand, with participation of some representatives of the selected brand or manufacture.

It is not loud or prominent enough to ever be a distraction when wearing a watch; I never found it to be an annoyance, and again, it does not affect the feel or secured fit of the bezel. In essence, it is something that is worth mentioning but not worth getting hung up on.

Easily one of the most impressive things I strapped to my wrist at Baselworld 2015 was the completed Jacob & Co. Astronomia Tourbillon watch (as well as the diamond-set Jacob & Co. Astronomia Tourbillon Baguette). There was a very real and very wide smile on my face as I gazed into the enormous sapphire crystal-wrapped mechanical planetary system on my wrist that, according to some people, has no business even existing because it is just so over the top. It is an insane watch, which is Jacob & Co. at its best – a watch and jewelry company that I think deserves a lot more attention than it is getting from watch lovers. I’ve written a lot about Jacob Arabo over the years and his controversial life and company. Let’s face it, he is in the business of dazzling the world’s rich and famous. That’s a tall order, and people need to appreciate that with so many companies trying to wow the world’s money, it isn’t easy to get the attention of people whose lives are often spent avoiding attention.

Apple's aluminum alloy will be used for the Apple Watch Sport. Apple says the anodized aluminum used is "exceptionally pure," 60% stronger than standard alloys but just as light. It will be available in silver and space gray. Adding strength to aluminum as a material is important – especially for a watch that will be used while working out or doing sports – as aluminum watches are notoriously easy to scratch and ding, and are considerably more difficult to repair when compared to stainless steel. The Retina display is protected by strengthened Ion-X glass and matching high-performance "fluoroelastomer" Sport Band in five colors.

If you invest 18,000,000 Swiss Francs rather conservatively and make only... say, 7% per year on it, that is 1,260,000 Swiss Francs per year. That is about .3 million dollars at the current exchange. Meaning that if you spend all of the interest income per year, the price of the Jacob & Co. Billionaire watch will let you live on .3 million dollars per year (give or take) for ostensibly the rest of your life. Sure, there are taxes involved in that, but that is a really nice way to live for the majority of people on this planet. Being set for life... or this assortment of 260 carats of large, baguette-cut diamonds on what apparently is my too-small wrist to wear and enjoy; this ultimate reminder that you can buy and sell people without giving it much thought. That's sort of the brand Jacob & Co. is, in case you haven't been paying attention.

Jean-Claude Biver made it very clear to me a few months ago that the future of TAG Heuer was in more traditional pricing and ceasing focus on its very high-end watches that includes some exotic chronographs and tourbillons. In practice that has certainly been the case and Biver's tactic seems to be implementing very aggressive pricing for models with in-house made movements, but there are still some higher-end models such as 45,000 Swiss Francs V4 Phantom Carbon and the upcoming 14,900 Swiss Franc TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph Tourbillon CAR2A8Y.FT6044 that we'll learn more about later in 2015. tagheuer.com

Singapore is also one of the 10 cities, which is apt because the F1 Singapore Grand Prix is in town from September 15 to 17. In 1971, TAG Heuer became the first watch brand to be involved with a Grand Prix team. And today, it is the official timekeeper for Red Bull Racing. The highlight of the Singapore exhibit is the 18k gold Heuer Carrera from 1970, which Jack Heuer presented to each Ferrari driver, with their name engraved on the watches’ casebacks.

The movement inside of the Voutilainen GMR is in-house made and produced mainly from German Silver (for the plate and bridges). I don't believe that Voutilainen has the practice of independently naming his movements - so this would be the GMR movement inside of the Voutilainen GMR watch. I am not sure of the frequency or power reserve of the movement at this time, but I can say that like the GMT-6 (GMT 6 O'Clock) the operation of the GMT hand is done by pressing in the crown. The GMT subdial even doubles as a subsidiary seconds dial, as it has two hands.

The Aquascope dial is remarkably legible but unsurprisingly so, thanks to the large applied hour markers and generously sized hands. I really like the combo of the very stately arrow-shaped hour hand and the sword-style minute hand. The dial is also generously lumed and well balanced, with an attractive flange ring where the minute markers are placed. Over the dial is a flat AR-coated sapphire crystal, and around it is a uni-directional rotating diver's bezel. I also happen to like brushed steel rotating bezels - which the Aquascope in this form has.

Any immediate skepticism about the Ball Engineer Hydrocarbon Spacemaster Orbital II Chronograph I had before wearing it melted away after enjoying time with the watch on my wrist - this really turned out to be my type of timepieces. In titanium, the 45mm wide case wasn't too heavy, and honestly, you'd never know it was titanium by looking at it, given the excellent finishing. The dial proves both functional and legible, and the overall design is exactly what I like in a modern sports watch: traditional without being retro stale, and visually contemporary. Of course, there is no one Ball watch with all the best features. The Ball Engineer Hydrocarbon Spacemaster Orbital II Chronograph doesn't have Ball's SpringLOCK feature - which admittedly would be a bit redundant with the Amortiser. Sadly, if you love Ball timepieces, no one watch will satisfy you - so get ready for some collecting...

Hugh Taylor: So I understand you’re going to dismantle a Submariner today?

Without having tested the Olio smartwatch operating system in much detail, it is difficult to sum it up or discuss what it is like to live with it. More on that in the future... What I can talk about is the bigger picture of what Olio is trying to do with how users conceptualize interacting with the watch and making the best use out of the notification system.

Much as anyone should, these pilots have selected Bremont purely for the quality of their timepieces and their obvious and authentic connection to aviation. Nick and Giles’ commitment to engineering the best timepieces they can is perhaps best illustrated by this point: Unlike other brands that would jump at the chance to market “militarized” versions of their timepieces to civilian consumers, Bremont does so discreetly and professionally. They aren’t in it for the fanfare, they are in it for their commitment to providing outstanding timepieces for serious military use.

I might even wear a Zymosis watch if I can get my hands on one... if anything, just to see people's reactions. I've said it before, and I will say it again: I might not be Time Warp Creations' target customer for something like the Time Warp Creations Zymosis Lockdown watch, but I am pretty happy to live in a world where stuff like this exists. You can order from their website (if so inclined) and the price (which is actually different on which version of their website - desktop or mobile - you visit) for each is ,200 - ,500. timewarpcreations.com

De Bethune DBS Tourbillon Watch For 2015

De Bethune DBS Tourbillon Watch For 2015

The Omega Speedmaster Co-Axial Chronograph isn't new to white ceramic, actually, but hopefully, the Omega Speedmaster White Side Of The Moon will do better than the last one. In 2012, Omega debuted a white version of the Speedmaster Co-Axial Chronograph watch (hands-on here) that I understand was never commercially released. I really like that model, but agree that the Omega Speedmaster White Side Of The Moon that matches the white ceramic dial and bezel insert with a fully white zirconium oxide case does it even better. It is entirely possible that in 2012 the world simply wasn't ready yet for a white Speedmaster. My understanding is that, since then, it has finally become cool to wear white men's sports watches (which I've personally been saying is cool for over five years now - so, pat on the back, Ariel).
