From a dial standpoint, Lange uses a familiar layout with three subsidiary registers – a monthly calendar at 3, day at 9, and sub-second & moonphase display at 6. Date readout sits directly below 12, with twin windows for the outsize date in traditional Lange fashion. Each of these registers is adjustable from micropushers located at 4, 8, 9, and 10. The dial plate itself is silver tone, which comes alive under the antireflective coating, bathing the dial with a slightly bluish hue in direct light. The hands are polished steel except for the subsidiary seconds register, which is blued, complementing the dial palette brilliantly.

A confluence of factors conspired to cause Ariel to put up a post last October asking for people who were London-based and able to cover the Salon QP. I looked at it with mild amusement and sent a reply, not really expecting anything to come out of it. I reasoned to myself, why not? Since I was living in London, and that I was able to take pictures and write with some degree of ability.
Higher-end brands such as Breguet, Montblanc Villeret, Glashutte Original, and others have offered enamel dial versions of this dial style. Those watches are extremely expensive. Longines uses lacquer dials which offer a very similar look, with bright colors and high contrast. The hands are pomme style and lumed, and the antique instrument style dials still look cool. While the time, date, and chronograph functions are all useful, the tachymeter and telemeter functions are vestigial scales at best. They simply aren't very useful these days. Call these watches nostalgic treats.
In the end, looking at the clocks around the gallery and meeting Miki Eleta was all in all, a wonderful experience. Aside from enjoying the pieces themselves, I enjoyed meeting Miki, as people like him are a testament to the power of human creativity. He has made me realize that when an idea is met with unrelenting action, anything is possible. The mere fact of the clocks in the exhibition attest to his level of achievement in a field that he had no formal training in, only blind passion, an a willingness to find a way to make his idea work.
MSJ: It was for me a surprisingly short road to get the first strap online. I was already working on getting Teenage Grandpa together in terms of the silk pocket squares I sell, but I started practicing strap making early last summer. The first one I made took four hours and it was absolutely hideous. It frustrated me but it also drove me to dedicate much more time to the craft. By the time late July arrived, I could make a strap but my materials were boring. My enthusiast friends caught wind of what I was doing and I started making straps for them... At first I just gave them away but then they started to offer payment, which let me know I was on the right path. I also did trades. Bring me interesting vintage leather and I'll make a strap in exchange. I also learned a lot online during this time, pouring over tutorial videos and DIY blogs. But there are some things I just figured out for myself through trial and error, like the flame and wax sealed edges. No idea if anyone else does that, but I like the look and it's kinda fun to do. In October I started to make stock for the store, and by November the straps were ready, before the pocket squares, which was not the original plan... Quite unexpected!
I wondered whether Eric thinks the route he took into watches, while circuitous, has helped him at all. He explained: “Oh yeah. In architecture there’s the structural art, the inside, outside, transparency. It’s amazing, but the reflection (in watch design) is the same for me.
In the world of haute horology, you have your classics like Patek Philippe and A. Lange & Söhne, and then you have wacky brands like Rebellion. The Rebellion T-1000 Gotham gets its name from its 1000 hours long power reserve and Gotham City-inspired dark color scheme. Time is told off two belts, not unlike the Devon Tread One; however, unlike the Devon Tread One, the Rebellion T-1000 is completely mechanical and therefore costs considerably more too.
Zenith will be the first one to point out that the escapement mechanism is not in fact a tourbillon. A true tourbillon is an escapement that rotates on its own axis. Many things which are called tourbillons are not. In this case, the escapement is designed inside of a cage which is meant to remain upright by being weighted down and mounted on a gyroscopic-style gimble to the movement. It playfully moves around as you turn and spin the watch. It is quite cool to look at and a miniature technical marvel that requires many parts to complete.
Timepieces like the Random Ghost (ref. SUOK111) are examples of how Swatch made inexpensive timepieces cool in the 1980s, and how Swatch's artistic way of approaching wristwatches is still extremely relevant today. The Random Ghost is in the New Gent collection and is a totally transparent watch with a colorful, exposed quartz movement. The reason Swatch calls it the "Random Ghost" is because the pieces of the movement are colored and chosen at random when the watch is produced resulting in 15,120 possible color combinations.
General Norman Schwarzkopf was born in New Jersey with his father being a military and police man. He moved to Iran when he was 12 with his family which offered him early exposure to the Middle East. Schwarzkopf was a lifelong military man but spent a lot of his time earning degrees. Most of his childhood was spent in some form of military prep school, and he later attended the United States Military Academy in New York, which we also often refer to as "West Point." A few years later he moved to Southern California to study mechanical engineering at USC. In the 1960s Southern California and Los Angeles was a hotbed of aeronautical development, which meant it was the best place to study advanced mechanical engineering at that time. Later still General Norman Schwarzkopf went to the United States Army War College in Pennsylvania to study more high-level strategy and leadership.
“Indeed, the watches we create are often so complex that components to achieve the required machines are extremely elaborate and accurate. But the golden rule is that the technique must always take precedence over aesthetics. "For me, the most important part when we realize a new project, is that it must have a technical and aesthetic coherence of all complications combined. I think what annoys me the most is a poorly executed watch from a technical standpoint (rather than a visually ill-designed one).”
The number of hours that is spent on perfecting each piece is truly extraordinary, and for all the bluster that big brands make about handcrafting their watches, the truth is that hidden away from the marketing messages are big machines that crank out parts like any modern assembly line. In stark contrast to the method that Roger Smith uses to make his watches, it is night and day.

Bell & Ross BR01-94 Pro Titanium Carbon Fiber Watch Review
The original Chargé d'Affaires was released in 1956 using an A. Schild caliber 1475 manually wound movement. A. Schild movements aren't really made anymore, but are considered pretty good vintage movements and are often restored today. The caliber 1475 is faithfully reproduced for the Chargé d'Affaires of today. Back in 1956 it was the very first alarm watch produced by Corum. Today Corum calls the movement their caliber CO 286.
In the mid 1930s, IWC cemented perhaps what is its most iconic lineup, the pilot watch family. The resulting pilot design language is often imitated but is rarely duplicated. As I mentioned, the brand is having a resurgence in the US and positioning itself as a serious contender to the other more common Haute Horlogerie brands with unique designs and movements such as the perpetual calendar in the new Big Pilot and in its Portuguese lines. However, since the Portuguese perpetual calendar is currently beyond my means and is on my grail list, I want to review the new Worldtimer, which has been part of my weekly work rotation for the past six months or so.

The LUC XP movement is the completely in-house calibre L.U.C 96.17-L, exhibiting a handsome blend of Cotes de Genève and circular graining. The movement benefits from Chopard’s Twin Technology, where two stacked mainspring barrels result in a power reserve of 65 hours - about 50% more than what is common, and even more noteworthy when you consider the thinness of the movement.
