Laurent Ferrier offers a few dial variations of the Galet Classic Micro-Rotor from a brush slate dial to one in a silver tone. Again, while they are quite attractive, I find them less engaging than the very beautiful enamel dials of the tourbillon. Which actually is a rare timepiece with Roman numerals that I like. Still, the dials on the Micro-Rotor should satisfy most. I bet they would customize one for you as well if you asked.
For April we have a very unique watch from Ritmo Mundo available for one lucky winner. This is the Ritmo Mundo Persepolis Triple Time. It starts with a huge 52.5mm wide steel case that has a middle section that "orbits" around to reveal one of two faces. The watch contains three total movements, each being a Swiss Ronda quartz. One side has two distinct dials each with their own time, and the other side has one time zone with the hours and minutes on separate dials. The architectural case has skeletonized lugs and an interesting style. Despite the large size, the Persepolis is quite wearable with the snug rubber strap and angled lugs. Retail price for most versions of the Ritmo Mundo Persepolis Triple Time is ,600. Enter for a chance to win your choice of either the black or steel and gold tone Persepolis Triple Time watch below.
The movement, which can be viewed via the expansive display case back, is beautifully finished and offers another example of the level of attention paid to every detail by Arnold & Son. The hand-wound A&S 8200 is both designed and manufactured in-house by Arnold and Son and offers 80+ hours of power reserve. Based on nickel silver, the A&S 8200 is finished with blued screws and Cotes de Geneve. Not a massively complex view, but one that has been given all the detail and attention one would expect from a watch such as the UTTE.

On top of all that, you will get to see the Seiko Astron GPS Solar in person and discuss its intricate details with Seiko representatives themselves! Seiko will also be providing autographs to purchases made during the event. If you're not in town, we can arrange for this to happen by phone. Again, if you are in the Scottsdale/Phoenix area this Friday, it's an event you won't want to miss. I've listed our details below...
Performance-wise the Magrette Moana Pacific Professional has a lot of juice. Over the dial is an AR coated sapphire crystal. The case is water resistant to 500 meters and it contains and automatic helium release valve. Will most people use these functions? I think you know the answer to that, but I like that Magrette is upping the value proposition of their watches without really thrusting up prices.
This striking expression of ‘auto-horology’ is offered as lot number 56.
In-hand or on-wrist, it is hard to deny the charm of this new Speedmaster edition. The 41.5mm sizing is modern without being too big and provides an excellent alternative to those wanting a bi-compax Co-axial Speedmaster that is smaller than the 44.25mm Moonwatch Co-axial. Dial design is a mix of old and new, featuring hands that are similar to those used on the Moonwatch "First Omega in Space" model (ref 3126.96.36.199.01.001) and the bezel is done in a matched metal brushed finish.
