I've personally seen this happen with people close to me in my life and it is sad no matter which way you look at it. My only hope is that more people focus on the factors that cause people like Robin Williams to feel that there is no escape other than suicide, and for more of society to consider these types of deaths part of a larger outcome of mental problems rather than some type of anomaly or mystery. I think it is too naive to ask "why didn't they get help," because clearly many people who end up committing suicide do seek out many forms of help over the years.
Omega's relationship with METAS, for the foreseeable future will be to test Omega's Co-Axial Master Chronometer movements, which will be officially certified for the following key factors: METAS will test the function of each and every Co-Axial Master Chronometer movement when exposed to magnetic fields greater than 15,000 gauss; the function of each watch when exposed to a magnetic field of the same strength; and even the average daily precision in different positions and temperatures to fall between 0 and +5 seconds per day (that is considerably less forgiving than the -4 to +6 second tolerance of COSC's chronometer certificate). Furthermore, the power reserve and water resistance of the watches will also be tested. This does not include other movements that may be included in Omega watches.
I’ve always been nervous about chipping or cracking unprotected crystals that stick out above the case with a careless arm movement. That being said, but I have never actually damaged one before (knock on wood), and the shape of this crystal really stands out, matching the style of the watch perfectly.
There are very few companies – if any – that truly make all the parts necessary to produce a complete watch case and movement. The Swatch Group can probably claim to be one, but that is simply because they own so many companies that do so much. Another exception might be Seiko in Japan, that even produces synthetic sapphire for watch case crystals. Aside from those two, and perhaps a few exceptions, almost all watch companies rely on at least some parts from outside suppliers. Before moving on, I want to unequivocally state that there is nothing at all wrong with that.
I took off slowly, cautiously, expecting the car to surprise or scare me. The speedo was less intimidating because I am used to the metric system, and the Bugatti Veyron does a lot to insulate the driver from the ever-blurring world around them. When driving like a regular person in a regular car, the Bugatti Veyron is compliant and more comfortable than I expected. It took roughly thirty seconds for me to tire of cruising speed, and a quick pull of the left paddle brought all 16 cylinders to attention. I stomped on the accelerator and the response forced a complete perspective change within my mind. For a brief moment, pseudo-panic set in, the sort of feeling I've had in the slow-motion seconds before a car accident. That panic is quickly dissipated in a crashing wave of adrenaline. While only a moment has passed, I'm going very fast and pushing towards the top of third gear.
Rolex is the most popular luxury watch maker in the world, and also one of the top names in luxury across all categories. There are entire businesses dedicated to fixing, copying, re-selling, auctioning, and buying Rolex watches that exist outside of the official Rolex sales or service channels. Rolex long ago had to reconcile with the fact that it cannot control all elements of how people buy and wear their timepieces. Nevertheless, Rolex officially admonishes the practice of customizing its watches. A position that might seem cold, but Rolex has pretty good reasons for this policy, even if it prevents some interesting opportunities. Nevertheless, Rolex can't always control what happens after people buy its products, and like the automotive world, the aftermarket watch customization industry can be big business.
The Cartier Calibre Diver watch combines a high-luxury sense of design and prestige with the presumed durability of a sports watch. It is either? Is it both? Those are good questions, and ones that are okay to ask, given that Cartier has been among the few major luxury watch brands who have been very consistent in making sure that their dressy lifestyle watches for men are almost always founded on sporty principles.
Cindy Livingston: My true fascination with watches started when I was merchandising women's accessories along with watches and jewelery for a department store in the USA. We were selling traditional watch brands, and in the early 80's, along came the introduction of Swatch, a colorful plastic watch that retailed for .00 US. These watches quickly became the accessory of choice and transitioned timekeeping into an accessory.
The good thing about matte versus polished black DLC is that it doesn't pick up nearly as many fingerprints and it does have a "cool guy" look to it, whereas polished black watches aren't always the preferred masculine choice, despite being a bit more showy. Montblanc even compliments the Montblanc Timewalker Extreme watch with a high-grade leather/rubber strap that it uses in some other products. The strap also has a matte finish and a sort of textile pattern on the surface.
Admittedly, it is a little busy looking, but Panerai has done a good job of fitting all the complications on the dial. The circular indication of the months is particularly clever, but a part of it is cut off because of the date window. Also, since its unusual for months to be displayed in this fashion, reading it will take some getting used to. If you think that regular Panerais have dials that are too plain-looking, this one is for you.
One of the unique things, especially for a young watch brand these days, is that there was no thought of going in the direction of crowd-funding to get the Astor+Banks Chrono off the ground. The company itself is privately backed, and it allowed them to focus on different channels of distribution. While you can pick up an Astor+Banks Chrono or Chrono S on the Astor+Banks website, you will also find it popping up in independent clothing stores around the Chicagoland area.
Whichever trade type an owner decides to pursue, it is important to keep three core concepts in mind: value, purchasing power, and flexibility. The best trade for an individual will be the one that maximizes his ability to preserve value while providing the greatest purchasing power and flexibility in trade and payment options.
The second pocket watch clearly is more complicated – and as such, has fetched a whopping 2,547,000 Swiss francs (.748 million) in 2012 at a Christie's auction, about 50 times more than the other piece we just discussed - so let's discover what makes this watch so interesting. It is the Breguet No. 4111, and it was sold on the 10th of January, 1827 to a certain Mr. Peyronnet for the sum of 7,500 francs – although it was taken back just seven years later and sold to another buyer, a count, for 8,000 francs; that's some Breguet-business right there for you.

After such an instance of acceleration, Andy jumped on the brakes and I'd bet the pavement folded up in front of the wheels. The braking opened my eyes to the ethos of the Veyron. It's... more. Moments later, we had pulled over and, after a few quick photos, I was in the driver's seat, facing a twisty bit of California side road with the sun on my face, the wind in my hair, and 1200 horsepower under my right foot.
The bottom line is that no one actually needs a minute repeater or a tourbillon, as they add zero functional utility to a watch in 2014. Nevertheless, the child-like glee we receive from seeing mechanisms such as this in operation is what keeps up coming back for more and more. This is the logical extension of having a fascination for shiny things. Appreciating the work involved in this Roger Dubuis Hommage Minute Repeater Tourbillon Automatic watch goes to basic human attraction for items that require a lot of effort and our desire to want to own those and somehow capture part of their majesty for ourselves. It doesn't matter what the watch does, when it comes to a piece like this, it simply matters that it required a lot of effort and looks beautiful in the process.
You can imagine the joy I felt after asking a question to the artist, during the press conference, about the parallel (if any) of his Leonardo DaVinci-esque beasts’ design to mechanical watch movements, that Olivier Audemars (member of owning family and Chief Officer of Audemars Piguet) stood up and added a thoroughly philosophical yet personal viewpoint to my question. After that, it was clear that I needed to sit down with him and find out more.
