For starters, take close look at the tritium tubes that mark out the hours. In actuality, these should be called pips; you have somewhat oval markers (in tritium) that match the applied minute markers around the edge of the dial. Of course, Ball being Ball, these are mostly in green, but then you have an orange pip at 12 o'clock, with a more yellow hue showing up on the handset.
Speaking of tritium tubes, the Ball Engineer Master II Slide Chronograph is making use of their new flat tubes on the dial. We have seen these before on the Marvelight, but those were much wider. Here, they almost approach the width of the round tubes. This keeps things a bit more subtle, but it also allows for (or at least, it seems to to my eye) a more even glow when viewed in the dark. It also keeps things balanced with the handset, which still relies on the round tubes.
Baselworld news aside, we also have an interesting story to share about Jose Mourinho and his watches. If you are a big fan of soccer or football - as it is known outside of the United States - then the man should be no stranger to you. Widely regarded as one of the top managers today, Mourinho also has an interesting ritual and relationship with his watches. Finally, we take a closer look at the heritage of Rolex - one of the biggest and most recognizable brands in the world. Find out more about Rolex’s history and their dedication to watchmaking in a special behind the scenes look.
Today on March 18th, at the onset of the Baselworld 2015 watch trade show, TAG Heuer made the interesting announcement that in light of the increased value of the Swiss Franc, the brand would not only decline the temptation to increase prices of their watches, but would actually be reducing prices. Here is the relevant section of the announcement from TAG Heuer:
There are no words however about notifications – such as emails, alarms, calls and others - so what the Swatch Touch Zero One presently appears to be is primarily a fitness / activity tracker that will indeed register your activities and with its bespoke app create reports on it. As a first step it is a very interesting proposition and one that marks an industry giant's entry into the smartwatch market. Price for the entirely Swiss made Swatch Touch Zero One is expected to be around 149 Swiss Francs or around 9. swatch.com

Smartwatch makers may have a lot more to thank Apple for than they realize. It will be Apple alone whose efforts will make smartwatches a successful consumer product. While the smartwatch market apparently sold 6.8 million units in 2014 (an apparent 82% increase over 2013 according to smartwatchgroup.com), the industry is still just learning to walk and has an extremely limited adoption rate among mainstream consumers. Thanks to a lot of good advice and some great hires, Apple understands that the Apple Watch (hands-on here) is a tech device which mainstream consumers primarily conceive as a fashion item because it is something they wear. Apple also knows that women are going to be an extremely important consumer of the Apple Watch and marketing to them will be a key part of the Apple Watch's first-year success.
The Rolex Oyster Perpetual is a faithful but modern take on the Rolex Oyster model that Rolex launched in 1926. The Rolex Oyster was, quite famously, the first waterproof watch in the world. That lineage can be seen in the Rolex Oyster Perpetual's straightforward and practical design. Legibility is strong and the dial design offers nothing more than is necessary to display the time.
The last major addition to the Rolex Datejust collection was the Rolex Datejust II which took the traditional 36mm wide size of the still available Datejust and increased it to 41mm wide for all Rolex Datejust II models (hands-on review here). This was seen as a way for Rolex to appeal to contemporary tastes for larger watches. In 2012, Rolex released an all steel version of the Datejust II with a rounded bezel, which previously had only 18k gold fluted bezels – even on those models with otherwise steel cases and bracelets. It is interesting to consider where Rolex might take the Datejust collection next.
At Baselworld 2015, HYT (the hydromechanical horologists) will present their third major new release - the HYT H3. A few months ago, HYT presented the Skull watch (here), which, while being a new watch, was closely aligned with the original HYT H1 (hands-on here). Unique, weird, and controversial, the HYT Skull was merely a fun distraction from what would be the main attraction for 2015 - this new HYT H3 timepieces. In a nutshell, this 25-piece limited edition watch in titanium & platinum that will have a linear liquid indicator for the hours along a rotating cubic linear hour scale, along with a retrograde minute hand.
And when it comes to branding, the Girard-Perregaux Minute Repeater Tourbillon With Gold Bridges does not forget its duty. The Gold Bridges themselves are chunky, arrow-shaped girders of pink gold and unmistakably Girard-Perregaux. The GP initials feature at 12 o'clock, nestled between the hammers, and the watch's serial number and calibre code are displayed on small pink gold plaques around 9 and 3 o'clock. The pink gold case is 45mm wide with a case back held in place by six screws, resulting in water resistance to 30 meters. The watch has a black alligator strap with a fold-over pink gold buckle. This is clearly a Girard-Perregaux, but also very clearly something unusual.
My second grail would be my Rodania RCAF one-button chronograph. This was the first vintage watch I saw online that sucked me in like a magnet. My dad actually tried to find one to surprise me with, for years on end. He even went as far as asking around amongst some older veterans to see if anyone kept their service watch, but no luck was had. Then, just about a year ago I had another watch deal fall through. I had saved and anticipated this other timepiece but the deal went south. So here I was with a good amount of cash when, lo-and-behold—a Rodania RCAF Monopusher appears on WatchesToBuy.com.
None of this is to say that I don't like the dial - which is actually the major element which first drew me to the Kentex Marineman Seahorse watch. Rather, because I like it so much, I take the time to inspect it carefully. Another plus is the minute/second scale around the dial as the flange ring - that is a welcome detail.
I can easily say that the Richard Mille RM 025 Tourbillon Chronograph Diver's watch is one of the most exotic watches in the world. There aren't very many of them around in general, and very few are alike, given the array of highly limited edition models available regionally around the world. This Richard Mille RM 025 Tourbillon Chronograph Diver's watch in a black-colored titanium and carbon composite case with red strap is and matching crown ring is a version that I've only seen this once - and chances are that I'll never see another one around quite like it, because it is, in fact, a custom piece with the red hardware elements. Is rarity alone what makes the Richard Mille RM 025 Tourbillon Chronograph Diver's watch exotic? No. Like a Ferrari FXX, this is a rare species in an already rarefied world, given what it does and what it is made out of.
One of the most visually arresting watches at Baselworld was Sarpaneva’s Korona K0 Northern Light watch. And I think you can see why, simply by looking at the photo above. Named after the northern lights, or aurora borealis, these watches feature very colorful lume that light up like nothing else you have ever seen. That aside, the watch also features Sarpaneva’s unique case shape as well as its trademark moon face moonphase indicator. If you are looking for something off the beaten path, Sarpaneva seldom disappoints.
What's so cool about the Piaget is it merges that Deco sensibility with the vibe of another art movement dominant in the "me decade": minimalism. The lack of adornment on the Piaget Black Tie makes, say, a Max Bill look like a Rolex Daytona Leopard! Next to it, a Movado Museum Watch looks decadent! Okay, those are wild exaggerations, but you get my drift: the Piaget Black Tie is one of the more successful stark offerings we've encountered of late in a flurry of deliberately unadorned timepieces.
In 2007, Omega delighted enthusiasts by reintroducing the iconic Seamaster Ploprof from the 1970s. In 2015, Omega updated the Seamaster Proplof 1200M with some new tech, material updates, and more reasons to love this cult dive watch that enthusiast adore. The large and heavy Omega Seamaster Ploprof is now a lot lighter, being rendered entirely in titanium – which also includes the supplied mesh-metal bracelet. The watch now uses a ceramic bezel and has a cleaner looking dial without the date. Inside the Seamaster Ploprof 12000M watch for 2015 is Omega’s new 8900 family of in-house movements that is more or less an 8500 movement with the addition of anti-magentic parts and Omega’s new METAS certification – “Co-Axial Master Chronometer.” The new Omega Seamaster Ploprof 1200M Co-Axial Master Chronometer versions aren’t half bad either, but these continue to be pricey timepieces, starting at ,500.
