Whiplash Movie Editor Tom Cross Chooses Perfect Jaeger-LeCoultre Watch For Academy Awards
Arnold Schwarzenegger has made a brand out of the man that he has created over his lifetime of effort. Come to think of it, at least on an external level, Arnold Schwarzenegger epitomizes the definition of a "man's man." Arnold Schwarzenegger is an archetype of masculinity. He has been on a four decade winning streak, is a self-made made man, and whether or not his tastes fit your own, this is a person who commands respect like very few people living today.
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.
The movement in the Angelus U10 Tourbillon Lumiere is called the Angelus A100, and it is, of course, exclusive to Angelus produced by La Joux-Perret. Arnold & Son's penchant for dead-beat seconds hands that tick versus sweep make an appearance here. Since the watch more-or-less looks like something born of the era when electronic watches began, it sort of makes sense in an ironic sort of way for this mechanical movement to have a ticking seconds hand that is a nod to quartz timekeeping technology. The movement is hand-wound with a power reserve of 90 hours between two mainspring barrels. Thankfully, there is a "linear" power reserve indicator which is viewable from one of the windows on the lower side of the case.
The new Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Grande Tradition Minute Repeater also comes with an alligator strap and with a matching pin buckle. It is priced at 9,000. jaeger-lecoultre.com

Their movements are at least as important to the company’s legacy. Very few companies can boast a lineup with 100% in-house manufactured movements, and almost no company Nomos’ age can. Nomos has been ahead of the curve in the return to in-house manufacture by many years, and as a result, they have a wide stable of movements available, from simple no-date manual winds to sophisticated double barrel power reserve calibers and, beginning this year, an astonishingly thin automatic movement to complement their existing automatic movements, the DUW 3001.
