The Meisterstück Heritage watch family includes everything from a simple three hand model, to a moonphase, perpetual calendar, of course the chronograph which is called the Pulsograph. What is a "pulsograph?" Well, it is watch marketing speak for a chronograph that has a pulsometer scale. These are designed to be used in conjunction with the chronograph in order to measure a person's pulse. These are frankly much more useful than a tachymeter scale. The way they work is simple. You first need to put your fingers on a vein to feel someone's pulse (or your own). Then you start the chronograph and count 30 pulses (on this watch). Different pulsometers are graduated to different pulse counts so many require less counting. Once you've counted 30 you stop the chronograph and the seconds hand should point to the correct pulse reading.

There is something very macho about flirting with danger. Sure, radioactivity can cause an array of harmful cellular damage, but so can smoking and people still do that. The science is unclear as to just how unsafe depleted uranium is, and Hublot doesn't suggest wearing it full time. In fact, if you really need a watch to wear with a radioactive protection suit, this would be it. Having said that, Hublot has been advised that under certain circumstances deleted uranium may be possible to wear on one's wrist and the nature of the timepiece's particular complications is dedicated to measuring that time.

TAG Heuer has had a long association with chronographs and one of their major releases for 2014 is the new Carrera CH 80 watch, which shares design cues from the original Carrera chronograph from the Sixties. Admittedly, the name is not the most sexy sounding, but it is so-called because it houses TAG Heuer’s new in-house made calibre CH 80. Check out this sporty new chronograph here.

Attached to the watches are nice looking straps that fit the theme of the watch. The Ceramic Carbon model has a black leather strap lined with rubber that has yellow contrast stitching. Don't forget that the case has a quick release system for the straps in the form of a pusher over the lug portion of the case that releases the strap. Most of these watches come with two straps so swapping them out is very simple.

Being familiar with the – rather unlikely, albeit beautifully functioning – reasoning behind the creation and running of the brand, the next question should perhaps be "how?" as in, how can the they conceive, manufacture and perhaps most importantly, how can they sell such incredibly complicated (and often stratospherically priced) pieces so successfully? With these questions on my mind, I set out to go hands-on with some of the most outrageous models of the brand in their Geneva boutique and to visit the case making and movement assembling facilities of the brand in Les Breuleux.

Most importantly, I want to honor what I recall as being the first watch I ever saw him wear - a handsome and simple Seiko. It was not until I was an adult that I even found it stuffed away in a drawer and had a memory of when he wore it. The watch was from the 1980s when getting a quartz timepiece was high-tech and the way to go for a watch. I don't know why he stopped wearing it, or when, but I do recall it on his wrist and find that years later, it still fits his personality so well. In the latter part of his life, he wore a disparate range of timepieces, mostly ones that I had gotten him, but not all. In fact, his favorite watch to wear was one that he chose exclusively to tease me.

Here is a set of new racing watches from Chopard that I really (really) like. There is something about the Chopard Grand Prix de Monaco Historique Collection 2014 that just hits a sweet spot for me on so many levels. So, let's take a closer look at these three new timepieces and you can decide whether or not you feel the same way about them as I do.

The case back is the standard steel issue familiar from previous Ingenieur models. Funnily enough for a line that started life with and became known for being highly anti-magnetic, this is the only model in the new lineup which has that property. The crown guard is a welcome addition as previous models had quite visibly protruding crowns, which made them more vulnerable (although I haven't seen any anecdotal evidence of this actually causing any problems). The case is notably slimmer (see MEASURABLE DATA) than the Omega: if you're wearing anything with long sleeves, you'll always be reminded that you are wearing a watch. In contrast, the Ingenieur has the ability to disappear until the time when you actually want or need to use it. And that is probably the main reason why

Oddly enough, I've always felt that the Caliber 876 looks better in skeletonized versus non-skeletonized form. The indicators are useful, but not always highly attractive on traditional dial. In this form on the Master Tradition a Quantieme Perpetuel 8 Jours SQ you have a pleasing symmetrical quality to the dial and the assortment of hand-engravings on the movement bridges give it a wonderful timeless appeal. Let's discuss more about this rather complicated movement before exploring the timepiece's aesthetic virtues.

We considered the Accutron tuning fork watch so important we included it in a list of the 10 most important electronic watches. About a decade later in 1969, the world was introduced to the quartz electronic watch that made all tuning fork watches obsolete overnight. Quartz watches were less expensive (eventually), more accurate, and had longer battery lives. Quartz watches also had ticking versus sweeping seconds hands.

For the One Week Skeleton, Armin Strom fully engraved and decorated the ARM09 turning it into the ARM09-S. That process took about 10 days, and they have to do it for each movement individually, as the process of engraving is done by hand. There will only be 50 of them, meaning that the One Week Skeleton isn't just the product of a lot of work, but also a rare one at that. What I later learned is that it even has a fair price. Learning all this was just too much to not consider the One Week Skeleton watch the right watch for me. So I started following it home and stalking it online.

Even though aneroid capsule based barometers and altimeters use more or less the same instrument to measure data, Breva indicates that the ones used in the Genie 01 and Genie 02 watches are calibrated differently, "Génie 02's aneroid capsules were developed specifically for registering air pressure for altitude readings rather than barometric pressure, and are different to those used on the Génie 01."

The GMT model comes in at a hefty 48 mm and uses the Calibre 04 in-house movement that allows quick adjustments of the hour hand (forward and backward) while traveling. Like the new 46 mm model, this one also includes a transparent case back and comes in a red gold limited edition of 200 pieces.

I wore a tanned leather Everest strap affixed to a Rolex GMT 116710 BLNR (Bleu/Noir bezel) that my favorite dealer, Fourtané, let me borrow for a week. Although I have worn Rolex watches for over 25 years, it was never with a leather strap, as I felt that any non-original strap did not compliment the watch. I quickly found that is not the case with the Everest leather strap. The Everest endlink looks at home with the brushed finish. Unlike wearing a stainless or rubber strap, a leather strap conforms to your wrist. After a week of wearing the Everest leather strap, the strap was working its way to fitting like a well worn work glove. Unlike silicon straps that stretch and give, they retain their basic shape. The Everest leather strap, on the other hand, has the same feeling of strength, like the stainless steel bracelet, but the lighter weight makes it disappear from your wrist. After wearing leather on a Rolex, I see why Rolex offers a leather option on some of their watches.
