As Bloomberg quotes him, just two years ago we have heard Nick Hayek Jr., president and chairman of the Swatch Group, say that he does not think the smartwatch will be a revolution for the industry. Now, however, we are at a point where Swatch may have something to bring in to the fight against Apple's – presently non-existent but imminent – domination over the smartwatch market. Swatch enters the game with the Touch Zero One which will compete with a considerably lower price point, much better battery life and – at this point the promise of – a wide variety of models designed and programmed to suit the specific requirements of different sports out there.
The Apple Watch Edition models with their 18k gold cases have proven to be one of the most widely discussed tech items of 2014 and 2015. Both provocative and controversial, the gold-cased version of Apple's new smartwatch is an interesting product that nevertheless causes tension in both the traditional tech industry as well as the luxury industry. However, I posit that the Apple Watch Edition is one of the least understood technology/luxury products of today, and it fits nicely in an open niche that Apple has correctly identified. On April 10th, 2015 - "Apple Watch pre-order day" - I visited the Apple Store here in Los Angeles at The Grove, one of the select Apple Store locations around the world where customers will be able to actually purchase an Apple Watch Edition. Let me tell you more about this interesting product and what the experience buying it will be like in comparison to the steel and aluminum versions of the Apple Watch.Read more ›
2015 is also the 40th anniversary of the iconic Bulgari Bulgari collection which originated as a design by Gerald Genta. The collection is referred to as such because of the double use of the Bulgari name on the bezel. This Bulgari Bulgari model is in steel and 41mm wide with a slight curve to the case which adds to its extreme comfort on the wrist. The steel case goes very nicely with the blue dial color. The Bulgari Bulgari in blue comes on either the matching steel bracelet or a blue alligator strap.

That is exactly how the Urwerk HIS has been designed to operate - polite, meaningful, and useful responses. Just such an instance might even be the first time you hear the system speak to you. You can give your Urwerk HIS a personal name or insult it, even, and it will continue wanting to assist you. During the Internship Phase, it might even make mistakes, such as lacking tact or social grace among colleagues. The bottom line is that it knows the type of information you probably want to hear and makes suggestions on how to handle it or act. Using your financial information and acting as your assistant, its further purpose is to get things done. What is more important, however, is how the system handles time and calculations - it is a watch, after all.

Less than a day before Apple debuts their highly anticipated Apple Watch and presents its full details, high-end Swiss watch manufacturer H. Moser & Cie wanted to have their say about the whole smartwatch craze. The message is that smart watches have been around not for a few years but in fact for centuries – and, dating back to 1828, they claim they are one of those manufacturers who have been producing them for so long. The vehicle carrying that message is the beautiful – and indeed very smart – H. Moser & Cie Endeavour Perpetual Calendar Funky Blue, now available in white gold with a stunning blue dial.Read more ›
What follows here is a short report on this "dream" lifestyle from my experience at the Concours d'Elegance 2014 during that memorable weekend, as well as a first hand account of Veyron owners that I met and had a chance to talk to. Please note, however, that I am far from even being able to test drive a Veyron, let alone own one, so this is not a lifestyle I can really fathom, but over two days, while surreal, I was a part of it and will try to report about it from the perspective of Parmigiani and watch lovers alike.
When the Richemont Group purchased Roger Dubuis in the early 2000s, it was (in part) their manufacturing capacity and skills that Richemont wanted. As unique as Roger Dubuis can come across at times, they are still a reputable true manufacture of watches - many of which bear the prestigious Geneva Seal. In fact, Richemont's purchase of Roger Dubuis proved a blessing in many ways, because immediately prior to that, the brands' watches had a reputation for not being reliable, as production problems resulted in some poorly made components that broke. At least, that issue is a thing of the brand's interesting and short history.

We again look in on a Colorado retailer, this time, in the capitol city of Denver which is home to Oster Jewelers. While they started selling watches back in 1991 in Aspen, they have been in business as Oster Jewelers in Denver since 2002. Run by Jeremy (a passionate watch collector) and his wife Melissa, Oster provides an intimate watch buying experience in the Cherry Creek shopping area of Denver.Read more ›
Attached to the Breitling Chronoliner case is either the Breitling "Ocean Classic" mesh metal steel bracelet or the standard Navitimer bracelet. I would probably prefer the latter, because try as I might, I can't seem to find "Milanese" mesh metal bracelets all that amazing for daily wear. The Breitling Chronoliner will also likely look fantastic on the right straps. Think of how cool this would look on the right color and textured brown strap.

One of the most interesting things about the video is how little time Rolex spends talking about the modern Rolex Datejust watch collection, with just a few brief glimpses of Rolex Datejust models that you can buy today. In a sense, the video is very much an homage to the Datejust product family name and the history of the collection, along with some of its most distinctive features (such as the date window, and later magnifier lens over the date window).
It really is cool. It's so easy to just glance at the place name and see the number on the 24-hour dial beneath it. All you've got to do is disregard the hour hand in the center and you can tell the time in any of the featured time zones in seconds. Remember, however, this complication will need some manual adjustment if you're traveling to certain parts of the world where the time zones are irregular. For example, New Delhi is UTC +5:30 and Kathmandu a bizarre UTC +5:45. You can still set the minutes yourself, though, so your watch will always be able to give you the right time.Read more ›
All-in-all, Pebble's second generation smartwatch promises to be a rather competitive package. To sum it all up, it features a slimmer case, extended functionality, much refined screen, seven days of battery life, an interface that seems to be considerably more user friendly than before and a competitive starting price of 9 on Kickstarter – suggested retail will be 9 and the first shipments will be delivered in May. Sounds good, and not just for us: although the Pebble Time fund-raiser campaign on Kickstarter has just been launched today, it went on to set the new record by raising million in less then 30 minutes; still into its first day, the campaign already has nearly 30,000 backers and over ,2 million pledged.

The Omega Speedmaster Dark Side Of The Moon Pitch Black carries on this two-tone color scheme, albeit in a more dynamic and vibrant way: the infinitely deep black of the ceramic is matched with the electrifying green of SuperLuminova that has been applied to the tachymeter scale, all hands, as well as the indices.
For those of you who scoff at a 35mm men's watch, Nomos offers many larger case sizes, from the 40mm Ahoi and Zurich Worldtimer to the 41.5mm Club Automat Datum Dunkel. Only time will tell if Nomos will update the current 38.3mm Nomos Tangomat with the DUW 3001, but it would certainly seem in keeping with their statements about the future of this new movement.
