Hublot Classic Fusion Tourbillon Cathedral Minute Repeater Carbon Watch Hands-On Hands-On

Matt Johnston: I've always loved making things. About twelve years ago, I began learning to design websites, and because it wasn't enough just to see my designs in Photoshop, I learned to code. The next 6 years, I stumbled upon more and more freelance work until I was able to design and develop full-time. As a freelancer, I was forced to wear a lot of hats, but my passion was always found in design work. After years of designing brochure websites and blogs, I started looking for new design challenges through product design. My wife and I moved from Los Angeles to the San Francisco Bay Area so I could join a startup as the lead designer, and soon after, I co-founded a peer-to-peer boat rental startup, Boatbound.

These are most evident on the ivory-dialed version; although for me, I think I actually prefer the dark blue dial MeisterSinger Paleograph . Aside from my own color preferences, the dark blue dial sort of "hides" the chronograph functionality a bit more, making this look and feel more like a traditional MeisterSinger, in my opinion. Further confounding the expectations of a chronograph is the fact that there are no pushers flanking the crown.

This movement creation also allows some neat tricks in design that are not as readily apparent, unless you can get up close and personal with the watches as I did. For instance, you will notice in the movement pictures in this article that there is a gear train forming a straight line from the stem to the other side of the dial. Armin Strom also has the flexibility, as we see with the Armin Strom Gravity Date, to move components around in other ways. While many watches will have a rotor (be it regular or micro) on the back of the movement. Here, it is actually on top, which of course presents its own engineering "opportunities."

This is a watch I was really quite happy I got to spend some time with. Weiss seems to be doing a lot of things right, and have been making the move towards producing more and more of their components here in the States (again, more on that here ), as well as assembling the movement here as well. To me, it shows a sign of maturity in a brand that they can take up that challenge, as well as a commitment to what they are producing (and where it's being made).

How Screwed Is The Watch Industry Thanks To The Apple Watch? Feature Articles

The official announcement of the Apple Watch has answered many of the broader questions about the company's first, and much anticipated, venture into wearable tech. For an in-depth look at what it will offer, check out our hands-on coverage about the Apple Watch, but for now, let us just say that we know what it will look like, what key functions it will have, and how we will be able to customize it so that it suits our personal style better. With that said, there are many details which are yet to be clarified, one of the more interesting ones being, in what new ways the Apple Watch will be offered for customers, beyond having it displayed in its own stores.

Some aBlogtoWatch writers as well as people I know actually spend relatively little new money on watches when they acquire new items. They do this buy selling and trading what they have for what they want. aBlogtoWatch has a good article on how to trade watches here, but the basic idea is simple: work with a dealer or private individual to trade a watch you have either wholly - or with some money for something else you want. Sure this makes it difficult to "grow" a watch collection, but you do get the benefit of variety and being able to explore many more watches than you'd otherwise be able to afford. Even a lot of "rich guys" engage in frequent watch selling and trading - only with watches that are at levels most people might never be able to afford in the first place.

We are pretty excited about this new IWC Portugieser Annual Calendar watch which debuts with the IW503501, IW503502, IW503504 references. For SIHH 2015, IWC will dedicate their focus the brand's iconic Portuguese collection with a range of new models - even though until this point, the new watches that IWC has thus far announced are in the Portofino collection. This includes the new IWC Portofino Mid-Size for women as well as the attractive and simple IWC Portofino Hand-Wound Pure Classic watch. The only new actual Portuguese collection watch for 2015 that we've seen is the IWC Portuguese Annual Calendar, and it boasts an impressive new movement, dial layout, and perhaps some hints about where IWC is going in 2015.

Looking to combine something as practical as a two time zone watch with something as delicate and prestigious as a tourbillon? Well, Swiss H. Moser & Cie has the watch for you, with the lovely looking new H. Moser & Cie Venturer Tourbillon Dual Time. The watch also happens to feature the first tourbillon-based movement offered by H. Moser & Cie, and it contains dual hairsprings along with some other interesting features that I will discuss below. In short, H. Moser & Cie presents a tourbillon watch potentially capable of overcoming the accuracy issues inherent in many tourbillon watches. For those who understand tourbillons, this is a clear irony.

That is about all there is to say about the Torgoen T32 dial – it's clean, it's legible, and there is not much to change in this sort of a style. Well, ok, perhaps there is. While the minute hand is appropriately sized, the hour hand comes off a bit undersized. I think here a simple widening of the hand a touch would do wonders for the look. Oh, yes, and one other thing – the date wheel over at 4 o'clock. Being as it is already inverted in comparison to the dial colors, it is surprising to see a white outline around the cutout. For my tastes, I would rather have a dark date wheel and no outline, allowing the date complication to fade away until it is needed.

Therefore, my first virtual encounter with Martenero ended up in a 20-minute long session of deciding upon which model I liked more and what mix of dial color, hands, and straps I wanted for myself. What made my decision that difficult was that I liked nearly all of the options that I could come up with. Okay, so with that confession out of the way, let's see in detail what the Martenero Ace offers exactly, and why I have grown so quickly fond of it.

Those latter models are what tend to be the lots that beat auction estimate values. Most auction lots fall within the conservative estimate values or come in below. So, not only are watches that can achieve million dollar prices rare, but most watch auction lots yield extremely predictable prices or come in under estimate.

For starters, let us talk about Sjöö Sandström. They are a Swedish company (not too many watches coming from there as of late), with roots going back to 1986. It was then that two engineers, Christer Sjöö and Mikael Sandström, came together over a love of watches. Their first effort was an automatic piece produced in 1993, and a worldtimer introduced in 1997. Now, in 2014, they're introducing the Sjöö Sandström Royal Capital, a new watch with an interesting movement.

While I believe some mechanical Uniform Wares watches are on the horizon, currently each of their watches contain Swiss quartz movements. Inside the Uniform Wares 351 Series 351/RG-01, for example, is a Ronda caliber 1004 quartz movement. It would be nice to have this watch be mechanical, but I don't think that is going to happen too soon, and it would have a major impact on the brand's pricing. More important is the biggest question of what Uniform Wares' customers want. Like I said, as a watch brand, Uniform Wares does really well with the design and fashion community, but there is a lot to enjoy for watch lovers who enjoy their designs. In a sense, these are high-end quartz watches, given the overall nice quality of the cases and the refined looks.
