That's right, if what I hear is true, then Doxa was among the first historic watch makers to decide it was best for them to bypass retail sales channels altogether and go with a direct-to-consumer sales model. If you want a Doxa you'll have to go to their website. It isn't the most sophisticated site in the world, but at least you don't need to speak with a human being if your wish is to shop in your underpants at 2am (the new luxury buying experience).

Make no mistake, although the Constant escapement's debut preceded that of the Anchor escapement by a year (having been announced at Baselworld 2013), there can be no doubt in that both brands have invested years and large sums in developing their very own escapements–even if both designs are based on the same principles. With that said, Ulysse Nardin presented a remarkable achievement with this new anchor escapement, an invention that functions in its own beautiful–and incredibly nerdy–ways, ultimately propelling the fine watchmaking industry forwards by prioritizing engineering prowess and years of research and development instead of going down one of the countless much less challenging avenues of marketing.  ulysse-nardin.com

OMEGA Speedmaster Professional X-33 (318.90.45.79.01.001) 3rd Gen

Drawing from what's labeled as the "golden era" of the 1950s, these new automatic Clifton chronographs will be formally introduced at SIHH in January. Intrinsically, the three are mechanically the same - 43mm stainless steel case, ETA 7750 movement (decorated and visible through the case back), sapphire crystals, and a 50m WR rating, to mention some of the highlights. Where the three models differentiate themselves then, is in the styling.

Two of Rolex's foundational Oyster Professional watches were born in 1953; they were the Explorer and Submariner. 1953 was also a moment when Rolex experienced one of their most important social achievements that would mark how the brand would be perceived thenceforth. Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay were part of the British expedition to climb mount Everest, and succeeded in being the first people in the world to do so. It was an amazing feat of human endurance and today watch fans recall the fact that Hillary (and Norgay) wore a Rolex Oyster Perpetual timepiece. The model would quickly evolve into being the now iconic Rolex Explorer, which was also released that year. The message to the public was that the Explorer was the timepiece of people who went to extreme lengths to get to where they wanted to be– an allegory that would transcend scientific exploration into the lives and struggles of normal people.

OMEGA Features Video Manuals

I like the execution of some SevenFriday watches more than others. The minute hand begins with a large wheel with spokes style design and has a smaller hand jutting out of it. The hour hand, by comparison, is a bit hidden underneath. It is not difficult to read, but isn't a model of legibility. The dial, like the case, is full of whimsical design elements that play out as a sort of satire on industrial design. SevenFriday watches don't take themselves ultra seriously because they aren't trying to be tool watches. Rather, they are trying to be interesting, gadgety fashion watches for men who don't use the term "fashion" in their vocabulary.

Along with the men's model that we've featured here in the article. Tissot introduced a companion ladies model. Styling is reminiscent of the mens model, though the hard angles have been softened for a more rounded look to the piece, and it's here in this model that you'll find mother-of-pearl entering in as a dial choice. Oh, and the handset is appropriately sized to the case here. Past that, specs are similar, with titanium making up the case, and (I assume) the same solar-powered movement at the heart of the watch.

The sale of vintage (as well as new) Rolex watches is big business. Like many contemporary wealthy watch collectors, Mayer relied upon the advice and trust of people like Bob Maron in selecting (and often buying) timepieces for his collection. Experts help educate and inform collectors of what the rarest and more important timepieces to collect are. At the time of writing Robert Maron has not yet responded to the complaint, which was filed in his local jurisdiction.

More surprises come in the form of the movement. Entirely made by hand and exclusively by Thomas Prescher himself, the movement is both an automatic and tourbillon-based. Bi-axial tourbillon actually. The tourbillon spins in two directions, with each being in 60 second rotations. The tourbillon is visible through the front of the case and it makes for a pretty awesome view in the entirely see-through case.

I've been following Halios since their first model was released back in 2009, and while four years is essentially just a few particles of sand through the hourglass of horology's history, Halios hit the ground running. Expanding from that first diver, the Holotype, with repeat successes like the Bluering, Laguna, the 1000M (aka "The Puck") and now the Tropik.

aBlogtoWatch debuted the TAG Heuer Monaco V4 Tourbillon here earlier in 2014. The TAG Heuer Monaco V4T does not materially change the appeal of the original Monaco V4, but in many ways now includes the simple involvement of a tourbillon. However, from a technical perspective, the TAG Heuer Monaco V4 Tourbillon is not like other tourbillons. This is because a belt actually drives the rotation of the tourbillon cage, rather than it being powered by the anchor and escapement wheel. The result is a tourbillon with an extremely smooth rotation, and one that, according to TAG Heuer, is less susceptible to shock.

Good luck, and thanks to Egard Watches, the sponsor of the Shade Black watch giveaway here at aBlogtoWatch!

What Do Jewels In A Watch Movement Do?

First off, I would just like to take a moment to thank aBlogtoWatch for selecting me, the lucky winner! It certainly was an incredible surprise – during an insomnia-fueled horology binge – to see an email from Ariel to flash up on my phone, congratulating me... ME! It was quite hard to believe at first that I had actually won. The phrase ‘but I never win anything’ has escaped my mouth a fair few times since the initial email, but it just proves that these things really do happen!

IWC Replica Watches add another rookie

Going back to my mother, after seeing the Audemars Piguet watch initially, she had no doubt about her decision and purchased a stainless steel and yellow gold Royal Oak Automatic, from the iconic Leon at Cellini. Her watch, just like the Men’s Jumbo, was larger in size, and somewhat unusually shaped at that time. Seeing the watch for the first time, her sister was surprised and commented that she expected her to come home with a nicer watch. When my mother asked what was wrong with the Royal Oak, she replied, “I don’t understand why the screws are showing.” We could not stop laughing! To this day, everyone I repeat that story to, laughs. It proves beyond a doubt that the Royal Oak turned luxury inside out, literally!

The movement is said to have been located as part of a stockpile of vintage movements at the Zenith manufacture (how many nooks and crannies does this place have?). The movement is about 50mm wide (yes) and was designed for competition use, not really to be in wrist watches. When it was developed in the 1960s no one was making 50mm plus watches, anyways. To learn more about the movement, I suggest you reference the article linked to above where I discuss it more. In a nutshell, it is manually wound, operates at 18,000 bph, is designed to be very stable, and comes with a subsidiary seconds dial and a power reserve indicator (about 48 hours of power reserve total).

JeanRichard even dedicated one of the Terrascope Aluminum pieces as an award in the brand's support of the Steve Nash Foundation Showdown event in New York City. Steve Nash's foundation is designed to support children's causes and the "Showdown" is a soccer match make up of professional soccer and NBA basketball players (Steve Nash is currently a player on the Los Angeles Lakers basketball team). So there is a "kid connection" right there with the watch.

NASA Artifacts In The Orland Park Library

It was a great choice for the trip and it was interesting taking my American watch out of the country. Usually I bring a foreign watch into America. The Runwell feels great on the wrist, and makes me smile each time I look at it. Why? Well it is inspiring to see American's produce watches, the majority of which are mainly made overseas. This American made a splash with the American on his wrist. I went it to one high-end watch boutique and the manager loved it. I took it off to show him, and told him it was made in America. He was astounded, and immediately put it on his wrist and posed for the classic "Wrist Shot" as we watch folks call it. That was an interesting sign and proof that even people internationally are interested in the resurgence of "American made..." more »

As I mentioned above, the three-hand Seastar 1000 is finally a timepiece I'd like to personally wear. Before, it was a nice watch to recommend, but with the new features and design elements it has become a handsome and comfortable weekend watch that won't break the bank. Prices for the Tissot Seastar 1000 Powermatic 80 dive watch are 5 for the ref T066.407.17.057.02 in black on a strap, 5 for the ref. T066.407.17.057.03 in black with the red bezel on a strap, and 5 for the ref. T066.407.11.047.02 in blue on a bracelet. tissotshop.com

Sotheby’s Reveals Important Watches For May, 2014 Auction

While both the concept and the term "tool watch" has been watered-down through consistent overuse, the idea of a tool watch is one that has always intrigued me. To my mind, few brands better define the watermark for tool watches than Sinn. The German manufacturer has been making role-specific tool-style watches for decades, from pilot's watches like the 144 ST to cult-hit dive watches like the formidable U1. Among Sinn's Baselworld 2014 additions, my favourite was easily the new Sinn EZM 13 diving chronograph. With an accessible case size and a mission-timer platform, this simple but highly functional chronograph is an excellent example of the modern tool watch.
