This latter notion is important because collectors are often highly emotionally driven when it comes to what they purchase. Just a few collectors hot on particular products can completely alter the market because some of those items are very rare and collectors' purchasing habits are closely monitored. What that means is that the value of certain timepieces can go up several hundred percent for short durations of time, and such an increase in value has nothing to do with their actual inherent or comparable value, but rather because some collectors have a temporary interest in something. So, the moral of the story is that a combination of niche collector activity as well as zealousness from watch auction houses can result in inflated pricing that does not always relate to larger market demand, but rather what entities with a vested interest feel that market demand should be. In short, the best watch auction houses are experts in collector psychology as much as they are auctioning off goods.
One of the more deceptively simple features of Watchville is the clock and calender function. This part of the app is arguably as useful as the news feed. Kevin designed a clock that averages times from a series of servers around the world with data originating from atomic clocks (to ensure as perfect timing as possible), as well as a full calendar system with a moon phase indicator designed to make it easy for people with calendar complications to set their watches. New for the Android version of Watchville (likely to be later rolled out to iPhone iOS as well) are updated calendar and timing functions such as the day of the year of the year, time nearest to the next new moon or full moon, and a 1/100th of a second countdown timer with chime. These features alone make Watchville worth downloading, in my opinion.

10 Things You Should Know About Wrist Watch Auctions
For the watch called Time Savior, Mr. Jones Watches worked with New York-based artist Kirsten Ulve who expressed being influenced by the "kitsch Jesus" aesthetic. Here the character of Jesus Christ finds integration into pop culture in a number of non-ordinary ways. The cartoon style crucified Jesus on the Time Savior dial is meant to suggest the theme of "when would Jesus do?" each time the wearer looks at the watch.
On a personal note, the original 1972 Royal Oak 5402 "Jumbo" is my favorite Royal Oak designs, and as far as I am concerned, in many ways, the Offshore – and many of its different versions – have made for a completely new model, a new watch. The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Grande Complication, while for obvious reasons incomparable to the sleek and understated looks of the original 5402, reminds me of what I felt looking at the 5402 and, more importantly, it brings the Royal Oak into the 21st century – while remaining completely mechanical, in fact, while offering the pinnacle of what can be achieved with a set of brass wheels and gears.
The popping light blue base color of the dial really is highly unusual – it was my first encounter with a watch that featured this color – and yet it looks cool in the metal, without appearing to be trying too hard. For fans of historical motor racing, the color scheme may be familiar: Ernst Benz notes that the inspiration is coming from that industry, certainly referring to the famous Gulf painted Porsche 917K and others. This color palette of course may not be for everyone, but it sure is a nice design element that takes a few steps away from the traditional white, silver or black colored faces. In fact, this color is the centerpiece of this release that makes it special – and also what made me pick this one up from a box of at least a dozen other pieces.
Speaking of elegance and grace, there are other Bovet watches for that. Recital timepieces are often about technical excellence and pushing the design envelope. I also like that Bovet sort of exists out side of the rest of the watch making world. They produce their own movements, they produce a lot of their own parts for the cases and dials, they produce parts for other brands, and their design ethos is refreshingly unconcerned with what other luxury watch brands are doing.
No. 16 Atomic Wrist Watch tech specs from Hoptroff:
The new movement follows suit in terms of general design and, much like previous in-house made movements by Panerai, does away with traditional movement layouts and decorations. Instead, it is a blend of industrial design with a few curved edges here and there for better aesthetic balance. While the P.4000 is technically very impressive and also delivers in the decorations' department, there are other in-house movements out there on the market which arguably do a better job at being a "watch lover's watch movement," thanks to their more traditional design elements. That being said, seeing Panerai choose and follow its own design DNA when it comes to its new movements is a respectable development: like the brand itself, it offers a more unusual alternative that will certainly not be for everyone – but it hits just the right tones for many, allowing the brand to enjoy the love of its cult following.
Another great watch improvement by Apple is in their steel metal bracelet. Not only can the bracelet be sized (by removing links) without a tool, but the butterfly-style deployant clasp (even when closed) is totally flush with the bracelet and doesn't add any thickness. It feels rather natural on the wrist, especially when compared to many other metal bracelets. This is in addition to the clever quick release system allowing a bracelet or strap to be very easily removed from any Apple Watch case. For something even remotely comparable in a high-end Swiss watch, you'd need to spend at least several thousand dollars.
Love luxury watches but can't afford them? Feeling slighted that all the cool timepieces you seem to be interested in are out of your budget? Frustrated when people with more money and less taste than you get to enjoy the finer watches in life? You aren't alone. One of the most difficult parts of being a watch guy (or woman) for many people is reconciling with the fact that a lot of the products you want to buy are more expensive than you can afford. This is tough to deal with, and we can't pretend that we can teach you secret ways to own your favorite high-end watches without having to pay for them.
When it comes to the "engine" of the MB&F HM6 Space Pirate, high amounts of hand-applied perlage and long, swirling edges with polished bevels dominate the view. Unsurprisingly, unique movement features necessitate more unusual components (lots of them), and here, even these have been painstakingly hand-finished – notably, it is just about impossible to have these highly unusual parts and their weird shapes and angles decorated by machines.
Since people are more used to thinking about size in reference to the diameter of round watches, it's a little harder to visualize the wrist presence of a 29.5mm square watch. While the pure surface area of the Nomos Tetra is around the same as a 33mm round watch, it's square shape gives it slightly more wrist presence. The overall feeling is probably most similar to the original Tangente and Orion.
Today, the Mille Miglia is a classic and vintage car event that runs as a regularity race, where teams must follow extremely precise goals for time and average speed. Still held on public roads, the regularity race format makes for a much safer and road-legal event. Using a classic Porsche 550 Spyder, Chopard's Co-President Karl-Friedrich Scheufele has run the modern Mille Miglia with none of than "Monsieur Le Mans" (and Chopard ambassador) Jacky Ickx. Chopard's participation at Mille Miglia also includes being the official timekeeper since 1988 (you can read more about Chopard and Motorsports here).
In her self-described role as “first lady” of TW Steel, Rowland has collaborated with the team overseen by father-and-son founders/owners Jordy Cobelens and Ton Cobelens to create two special editions. The first was a colorful, bedazzling, decidedly feminine take on TW Steel’s CEO Tech chronograph model; now, Rowland has unveiled a brand new, decidedly sleeker, more minimal revision of another signature reference, the TW Steel Kelly Rowland Canteen Bracelet Special Edition TW312. Rendered in a coolly stark, graphic contrast of PVD black coating and rose gold accents, with a 40mm case size, it's a fresh, slightly edgy statement for female wrist – that is, if that’s the watch’s target audience...
Case: 50x47mm, thickness 15.10mm
- 18kt pink gold case with transparent case back
- 18kt pink gold crown with unique numbered sapphire plate
- Lug activation system for Minute Repeater function
Dozens of times each year, large and small watch companies sponsor popular people and widely-attended events (or so they believe), in the hopes of reaching the eyes and hearts of fans and followers. The accumulation of these marketing efforts, and others like them, probably add up into the billions of dollars each year.
Martin Pulli: I think watch lovers in Philadelphia are mostly on the "down low." I tell folks interested in watches that watches are our toys, for grown folks. I hear potential buyers ask questions about watches as an "investment" or something similar, but I never encourage that thought process. Watches are tiny machines, with a lot of moving parts. They all need service in time, and they are worn daily on our bodies. So, they are consumables. But, watches are also lovely and very personal, so they are our toys to enjoy. A lot of the collectors here enjoy their watches and keep their hobby largely to themselves. I don't see too much showboating.
After a few bumps in the road in 2013 and fine-tuning the micro-fluid capillary module, HYT are now expecting to produce a total of 500 pieces by the end of the year - which is an impressive amount given the uniqueness of the watches. Having said that, HYT was fortunate to receive high praise from the start, upon the release of the HYT H1 watch in 2012.
It is said that watch sales people have a saying, “You only need to sell the dial.” For enthusiasts like us, we all know that what lies underneath the dial is just as, if not more, important. I’m referring to the movement, of course. Made up of hundreds of tiny parts, enthusiasts like us can just sit around and talk about movements all day. And one topic that is often a point of contention is in-house movements. Just how “in-house” must be it to earn that designation? Are they truly better than ebauches? And is there any difference between in-house made and in-house designed? Ariel shares his thoughts.
