In essence then, the Rubber B Rolex Deepsea Glidelock watch strap stands out because, thanks to its two distinct features, it feels more like something the folks at Rolex might actually offer as an option. First and foremost, the strap is designed so you can swap over your Glidelock clasp (for more about this clasp, check out our review of the Rolex Submariner). This way, you can still keep that micro-adjustment ability to tune things throughout the day. Oh, and if you don't particularly see yourself diving, you can remove the divers extension, cutting down on some weight as well.
Welcome to a new series on aBlogtoWatch where we discuss important stores that sell watches all over the world. We spend a lot of time here talking about the watches we think are cool or that we would recommend buying, but little time advising people where to buy them. Until now. Each of these stores has an interesting story to tell about where they operate and who they sell to.
While there are some others, the real masters of "ultra-thin" are brands like Piaget, Audemars Piguet, Vacheron Constantin, Jaeger-LeCoultre and perhaps Arnold & Son (who released the world's thinnest tourbillon watches with the UTTE (reviewed here) - though we will see what they continue to do in that department in the future. Ultra-thin movements are very interesting, but at some point how thin is thin enough? And beyond some threshold point does more thinness matter for wearability? I'd say that anything 5mm or less is going to wear pretty much the same, being of a similar practical height on your wrist. When you start to shave off fractional amounts of size you are simply getting into the realm of bragging rights. But that is OK. Toys for grown men are frequently about being able to brag to your friends.
H. Moser & Cie. is proud of the fact that they are a small manufacture. In fact, on their website, they proudly proclaim that they are family-owned, that they take pride in complications that “are simple and functional” and that every watch that they make is hand-built and finished.
In the very beginning stages of mechanical timekeeping, the great, great, great, great grandfathers of modern day watches were clock makers. They were challenged and tasked to not only create mechanical contraptions that told time, but also to solve the problem of an energy source to drive the timing device. This was cleverly achieved by a system of weights and pulleys, which was basically harnessing gravity.

10,000 Gauss = 1 Tesla. Further, 1 amp / meter = 4(3.14) (1000) Oersted, or 12560 Oersted.
The real story of course is that the Galaxy Gear (I) is the first of many. Samsung has already shared that the Gear is the first of many smartwatches that it will continue to develop and release in the near future. The Galaxy Gear was met with mixed reviews. While I think some of the criticism is sound, it is still a pretty good device given where we are currently at. The major issue of course is how few phones (just the Galaxy Note III phone I believe) with which the Galaxy Gear is compatible.
As the year was also the 50th anniversary for the brand's most popular model: the Carrera, a slew of new versions were also announced, including some with the new 1887 in-house movement as well as a reissued model in honor of the man who pretty much single-handedly created the Carrera: Jack Heuer, since the previous 80th anniversary limited edition model sold out immediately last year when it was introduced. To top all this, TAG Heuer also announced a brand new (completely in-house) column-wheel chronograph, the Caliber 1969, and a modern manufacturing facility in Chevenez that will allow them to create these movements in the quality and volume necessary to meet the demand for the popular brand.
The Omega Speedmaster Dark Side Of The Moon feels so much more than a ceramic version of the modern Speedmaster. Omega has cleverly been able to produce yet another model which really feels like more than the sum of its parts, and if you look at the minor details you'll realize that this isn't just another black ceramic-cased timepiece. It combines the history and mystique of the Speedmaster collection, with a useful material, and very satisfying design that is both masculine, and just plain cool. What do you get when you upgrade one of the world's most iconic sport watches into a cult item? You get the Omega Speedmaster Dark Side Of The Moon.
On many watches, you'll see a plain, textureless, strap, and immediately assume that it's some cheaper piece of leather that's being foisted on us– because many of us have picked up watches with straps just like that. Here, the plain leather strap instead confers a sort of understated luxury. The finish itself is a rich chocolate brown, and has a soft feel as it conforms to your wrist. While I won't call it a thin strap, it's not so thick that you feel the bulk under your wrist as you're typing (as an added bonus, it's just thick enough to keep the floating keeper in place throughout the day).
AkriviA was established less than two years ago by two young watchmakers, Rexhep Rexhepi (formerly of BNB Concept) and Etienne Deschamps. Despite the fact that they are at relatively early stages of their watch making careers, they both have gained invaluable experience during their apprenticeships at the prestigious manufactures of Patek Philippe and Chopard respectively. Rexhep, following the four years he spent at Patek, went on to work with BNB Concept (which went bankrupt in 2010 and whose best assets were acquired by Hublot), F.P. Journe, and presently at MHC (Manufacture Haute Complications in Geneva). Etienne left Chopard to pursue his studies in management. They established AkriviA in 2012 but their first watch, the Tourbillon Monopusher Chronograph debuted in Baselworld earlier this year.
The first page in the success story of the luxury sports watch has arguably been written by the Royal Oak of Audemars Piguet, demonstrating the validity of this market segment. What Richard Mille did during the early 2000s is that they took the concept of a high-end sports watch a step (or a mile?) further, sensing that there still was room to grow, both in terms of crazy designs as well as crazy prices. And grow big Richard Mille did, as they have been expanding by around 15-20 percent year over year, reaching an annual production of around 3,400 watches. With prices starting at €40,000 (or around ,000) for the very "cheapest" model in their collection, these figures indicate just how much extra potential there was in this niche.
According to Arnold & Son, to do this is no easy feat and the end result is that when the chronograph is activated, it looks as if the sweeping seconds hand is trapped in an endless game of cat and mouse with the dead beat seconds hand, because at the end of each second, the dead beat seconds hand quickly jumps away. Sounds interesting? I can’t wait to see this movement in action.
