Ceramic is a bit lighter than steel, and is very (very) scratch and wear resistant. For me, this makes it a really tough to pass up material. Aside from the screws, I think most of the case and bracelet are ceramic. There is also supposed to be a black tinted sapphire crystal over the caseback - but the prototype I saw didn't have that.

As you can see from the image of Scott wearing the pocket watch around his neck like an alternative universe Flava Flav (who is also arguably from an alternative universe) the piece is rather large. Still, Scott seems to suggest that you can wear it in your [giant] pocket, around your neck (with a red matador jacket), or hanging off your purse. Jeremy, what purse do YOU usually tote around? Then again, the Hypnotic Heart pocket watch might not be that large at all. Rather, Jeremy Scott might just a little guy! You should also know that the Swatch Hypnotic Heart pocket watch will be available as a limited edition of only 777 pieces.
What is this collection all about? These are super high-end fun novelty watches. Each has a tourbillon and a minute repeater. When the minute repeater is activated, the little characters on the dial come to like and act as though they are striking the bells. So each time you hear a chime for example, one of the little character swings a sword. Lucky you I took a video so that you can see it in action - otherwise you just don't get it.Read more ›

Design-wise the Avanti really holds it own in a room. Orbita's concept behind the look of it was to fit in most any room, but look good without having to blend into the background. It goes without saying that the dark wood and carbon fiber is masculine in style. One thing I find interesting about the design is that it feels appropriate as a housing for modest timepieces up to the most high-end ones available. The front of the Avanti opens up with two lockable glass doors. Orbita supplies two keys for the lock. The system works well, but the doors don't close with the tautness of a vault. They are secure though. While the front doors lock, its use as a security mechanism is of course limited by the Avanti itself. While the locked glass doors will deter a "casual thief," anyone can just pick up the Avanti 3 and haul it away. The cabinet weights 22 pounds, and it isn't even plugged in. Dimensionally the Avanti 3 is 13.5 inches tall, 15.25 inches wide, and 8.25 inches deep.
One of the most notoriously difficult to find German watch brands is Damasko. They tend to make cool, high-function tool watches for a fair price. If you are a fan of Sinn, you'll also like Damasko - and it goes without saying that Damasko's designs are highly inspired by Sinn timepieces (which are also less than ironically hard to find).

The Nubeo brand is one that offers diversity I really like. Offering something extremely unique, Nubeo watches also seem to do it with a high level of refinement and sophistication. I am unclear of exactly what is going on with the quiet Nubeo brand, but you should be familiar at least with what they have done in the past - for me, this is really a one-of-a-kind gem. Released a few years ago, this piece is the Arctic Snowmobile Adventure Chronograph Limited Edition watch. It is one of two pieces that Nubeo made for a little snowmobile endurance race they sponsored in the arctic (duh). The race also has some cool outfits made and if you have one of those jackets (as a few people do), consider yourself incredibly lucky.

I first covered the Gotham watch collection back over here. Clearly I needed to include a host of Batman references when discussing a watch with the name "Gotham." The design of the watches is also pretty wild. The large square case is full of details and interesting segments. If you like complex case designs, you'll be at home here. One of the more interesting elements are the individual columns on the side of the case. These are in metal or ceramic I believe and stand in front of a sapphire viewing window of the movement. There are also unique screws and of course the system which connects the strap to the case.Read more ›
This here is the Edmond Pole Guardian watch. When I first learned about it I was taken by the innovative dial, and then I started to ask myself what the name meant. It sort of sounds like a car racing term - like "pole position" - but I don't think that is it. Perhaps it is in honor of a flag pole that needs protection? Not likely. In fact the name has to do with protecting the Earth's poles. How it protects our planet's poles, I am not sure, but it is certainly a nice gesture.Read more ›

Listening to Omega’s head of product development speak sheds light on some of the mysteries of watch-making and design. Good thing I recorded it. The best stuff I have for you in this article doesn’t come from me at all. The two videos included are interviews with Jean-Claude Monachon (Omega's head of Product Development) and Omega’s CEO Stephen Urquhart. I think you’ll enjoy the two of them.
Decent looking, this is a nice sport watch if you are looking for something all black with blue trim. That is, as opposed to something with red trim (that is so popular). The Class-1 Chronoffshore will be limited to just 250 pieces, and if you are a Class-1 fan, I bet you are really excited about it. Price is a bit up there at ,030
Dubois-Depraz has a long list of talents and clients, but their unofficial specialty are chronograhs and calendar mechanism. They also like making movements that feature both. Making a reliable chronograph is a pain, and many important brands work with Dubois-Depraz for a host of needs ranging from entire movement modules to specific hard to manufacture parts. You'd honestly be surprised at who uses their services on a regular basis.Read more ›
