Looking at the Rpaige website, you'll see the range of Original Antique dial and movement watches. Some dials are popular classics, while others are more unique or even one-of-a-kind pieces. Very few collectors such as Richard Paige could even assemble a collection like this. It feels special being able to wear them as well, because of their being matched to an original movement. Prices for most of these Waltham or Elgin-dialed watches is ,800 - ,500. Only the most rare models are a bit more. That is also priced at least a few hundred dollars above the price of an Rpaige Wrocket. Nevertheless, the prices feel really quite fair.

The Lange 1 Tourbillon was released six years after the original Lange 1, in 2000. Nevertheless, A. Lange & Söhne wanted to feature the Lange 1 Tourbillon as the basis of their new 20th Anniversary model. They also decided to incorporate the new limited edition watch into their "Handwerkskunst" collection - which takes their "standard" models and imbues them with a lot of hand-decorated engravings. This Lange 1 Tourbillon Handwerkskunst model doesn't have as much hand-engraving as some other models, but I feel that the amount of decoration is appealing, and it is limited to the movement side of the case.

My First Grail Watch: Elie Bernheim Of Raymond Weil

G-Shock watches can be found with purely digital, hybrid "ana-digi" dials which mix screens and hands, as well as purely analog dials. Casio engineers have struggled to meet the durability and functional demands of a G-Shock with the prospect of having to work with hands. In a sense, it is a step backwards, but developments like the "Tough Movement" which can realign hands that move out of position due to shock, and the "Smart Access Crown" which makes adjusting the time and other settings more simple, have made analog dial G-Shock watches much better.

According to Greubel Forsey, "A miniature microscope set into the caseband will allow full appreciation of this chef-d'œuvre." By that, they mean the nano-sculpture, but it sounds like in addition to the lens in the crown-style appendage at 9 o'clock, there will be another microscope-like item attached to the strap? Is that what they are saying? You can now begin to understand how I feel like this is one of the most mysteriously discussed watches around.

More loosely organized brands sometimes even go to lengths in order to facilitate sales. Ignoring the complex importation laws designed to tax and tariff goods coming into most countries, watch company representatives who want to sell timepieces at SIAR sometimes do so in ways that might not make customs officers particularly happy. While Mexico doesn't have egregiously high taxes on luxury goods, South Americans in places such as Brazil and even Argentina have become skilled at attempting to maneuver around draconian luxury taxes designed to protect local companies. Not that there are high-end luxury brands I know of in Brazil or other regional countries who need such protection. But that is another story. The point is that in places such as Mexico, completely in contrast to places such as Switzerland, there is a marked cultural sense of "just getting things done however they can be done."

When it comes to the dial, you can see where TAG Heuer took a total departure from most Carrera watches outside of a familiar font. Pretty much everything else is different, as well as the movement and materials used. The dial is mostly made from a piece of carbon fiber and sapphire crystal - much of which is smoked.

Hands-On With The George Daniels 35th Anniversary Watch By Roger Smith Hands-On

Robert Michelsen: I can‘t say exactly, since I was so young. When I was a kid I was always around my dad‘s and grandfather‘s shop, and I showed interest in watches and watchmaking quite early. Often I became totally hypnotized trying to fix and assemble old alarm clocks. I remember the thrilling satisfaction I got when I all by myself dis-assembled and assembled an old alarm clock from Poland and made it "tic-toc."

There is no “hard sell” or solicitation at “It’s About TIME.” While we welcome follow-up inquiries, none of the timepieces on display are for sale at the events themselves. “It’s About TIME” is staged for goodwill purposes exclusively. The depth of interaction with our guests provides opportunities, impressions, and memories beyond valuation.

I would equate changing the strap as performing minor mechanical surgery. The new Rolex Submariner does come with screws for the links and the clasp, but the case uses a spring loaded pinion. And therein lies the main problem when removing the strap. Like most of these spring loaded cases one has to be super careful (even when using the appropriate tools) to avoid missing the little keeper and scratch the case.

The last thing to cover is the basic shape of the Citizen Promaster Aqualand Depth Meter watch. It's the classic round "tuna-can" style shape that Seiko and Citizen dive watches are famous for. This makes for a dial that is recessed and well protected by the unidirectional bezel. The sword teeth three dimensional design of the bezel make it easy to grasp and turn. Since the bezel seats 2 to 3 mm higher above the anti-reflective mineral crystal, it does a good job of covering the dial face while giving a truly instrument look to the watch. The rest of the dial is no-nonsense dive watch, with indicators well situated, while the inner part of the dial contains the depth gauge indicators in meters up to 70 meters, or 230 feet (typically the limit for most recreational diving). The watch itself is water resistant to 200 meters.

Now, we must note that carbon cased watches are by no means a new thing: Audemars Piguet debuted their first forged carbon cased watch in 2007 and since then we have seen carbon – this low-weight, durable and extremely hard material – premier in the collections of several watch brands. So what is exactly new here, and what is this craze for carbon all about?

Alright, we have established the new movement is thin, but what renders it a genuinely modern and more sophisticated design is that it achieves this without any major sacrifices: the P.4000 offers at least 72 hours of power reserve (as per Panerai's claims) thanks to its double barrel system, runs at 28,800 vibrations per hour, and has a hacking function. If we forgive the lack of a date or any other more complicated functionality – which is fine, since we are in fact looking at a base caliber here – the P.4000 crams a lot of practically useful features into a compact sized movement.

In it, Oris has paid tribute to many of jazz’s greatest artists – from Oscar Peterson and Duke Ellington to Dizzy Gillespie, Frank Sinatra, and even avant-garde fusion guitarist John McLaughlin. However, to be honest, despite my passion for this music, I haven’t always desired to acquire one of these models for my own collection. For one, I’ve sometimes found them a bit too illustrative and literal, more like a piece of memorabilia than something one might actually want to wear. Oris’ Miles Davis Limited Edition from 2001, for example, features a silhouette of Miles playing trumpet on its caseback along with his stylized signature; the tank-style case and rather garish deco-style hour numerals on the dial didn’t seem too great a fit for most contemporary tastes, either.

ABTW: Do you still have it? Or have you moved on to something else?

The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Concept Acoustic Research Episode 1 will came with a black rubber strap and a titanium bezel, adding that extra bit of sportiness we have come to expect from the brand's Concept pieces. More details to come in January, as we hope to see (and hear) this very promising and interesting piece of engineering in the metal at SIHH 2015. audemarspiguet.com

To say that I was excited about my first visit to the Hong Kong Watch & Clock Fair – and my first time in Asia, for what it's worth – would be a massive understatement. You see, over the years, we have written dozens of Inside The Manufacture articles, accumulating our experiences in plenty of Swiss and other manufacturers, from the tiny one-man workshop to the state of the art manufacturing facilities of industry giants like Rolex, Audemars Piguet, and many others.
