Without further ado, let's begin our manufacture visit or, in other words, our journey behind the scenes at Richard Mille. Opposing one of today's key marketing trends and yet in line with the practices of the majority of the industry, there is no one singular manufacturing facility that builds Richard Mille watches from A to Z. Instead, the brand works with a number of suppliers and partners in what is a complex system of co-operations. Our article on the history of ETA explains this historical structuring of the industry in more detail, and for now, we will just say that ever since the 18th century, watch manufacturers have worked with a great number of diverse suppliers such as case makers, blank movement (also known as ébauche) makers, dial painters, and many others. As a direct consequence, one company has scarcely comprised all manufacturing capabilities simultaneously.

I think it’s time for the hard-core mechanical watch enthusiast to give their “distant cousin” - quartz watches - a little more respect. I guess in my own way, I’m as guilty as the next guy, when it comes to comparing mechanical watches to quartz watches. When I was in the watch repair business, I flatly refused to take in quartz watches, and felt it below my standards as a watchmaker to change a battery in a quartz watch. I felt that quartz watches would make watchmakers obsolete, and in a way it actually did.
Quite literally, Finnish Stepan Sarpaneva's face is on the dial of the piece unique Woodoo watch. This individually made watch is based on the Sarpaneva Korona Moonshine that came out a few years ago. What Stepan did is overlay a diamond-studded skull mask over the face of the grimacing moon. The face is loosely based on Stepan's own face - and if it isn't, then it seems all too convenient. That's actually him below modeling off the face paint inspiration. What followed was probably a hell of a night for Mr. Sarpaneva.
All-black and delightfully "mean," the Breitling Super Avenger Military is a rare example of a 24 hour watch. In the United States we refer to 24-hour-format time as military time. That is because here, it is primarily the military that uses this format while civilians use a 12 hour format. We are partial to our AMs and PMs. Many who live or travel outside of the US know the the 24 hour format is used heavily all over the world for a range of purposes from television schedules to movie times. Having said that, if you want an analog watch (mechanical or otherwise) that indicates the time in a 24 hour format you have precious few options. Though, you are in luck if you want to wear a digital watch full time.
For 2014, Audemars Piguet decided to release a new limited edition version of the Royal Oak Concept GMT Tourbillon in white and titanium. This went with two other white watches that included the Royal Oak Offshore Diver in white ceramic, and a new white version of the Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph 44mm. With three new white watches for 2014 you could call it a trend over at AP. Given their efforts in markets such as Miami and other parts of the world were white-colored watches work well, that isn't at all surprising to me. As someone who happens to like white watches I particularly enjoy the result.
The Torgoen T32 Automatic is water resistant to 100 meters and has a sapphire crystal. The dial adds some orange color accents to the traditionally monochromatic aviator-style dial. Inside the Torgoen T32 Automatic is a Swiss Valanvron automatic movement, which is part of a new breed of mechanical movement makers that has come about since ETA stopped supplying firms outside of the Swatch Group. The Torgoen T32 Automatic ref. T32103 watch has a retail price of 0 and you can enter for a chance to win one this month on aBlogtoWatch below.
In February 2010, Hublot announced that HEAT guard, Dwyane Wade, would join the "Hublot family," a highly elite circle of Hublot ambassadors who are living legends in their respective disciplines. Wade’s commitment to excellence, which he strives for on and off the court, and his passion for the sport, parallels Hublot’s vast achievements in fine watch making.
On a more entry-level basis, many Montblanc watches contain base Swiss ETA or similar movements, sometimes with modules on top of them to offer additional functionality. That is the case with this Montblanc Meisterstück Heritage Moonphase, which uses a base Swiss movement with a module for the moonphase and calendar functions. They refer to the movement as the caliber MB 29.14, and it is an automatic with a 4Hz movement that is visible through the sapphire crystal caseback (my apologies for not getting a rear picture of the watch).
To say that A. Lange & Söhne makes some pretty spectacular timepieces would be an understatement. Aesthetically, the new 1815 Tourbillon watch looks simple –a tourbillon at 6 o’clock is nothing unusual. However, the 1815 Tourbillon combines both a spot mechanism and a zero reset function, which means the tourbillon not only stops when you pull out the crown to adjust the time, the seconds hand also automatically resets to zero for more accurate time setting.
A downside to those timepieces that display the tourbillon on the dial side–and hence also to the in-house caliber of the Parallax–is that they do not showcase much eye-candy when viewed through the case back. The way Grönefeld tries to compensate for such aesthetic penalties is by displaying a number of bridges and cocks on the back of the movement, all done in stainless steel instead of the much more common brass, and all hand-polished, micro-blasted and relief engraved. This sounds (and in fact looks) promising, save for the array of 13 screws securing the components, along with another eight which are holding the case back in place. Having said that, shaping and decorating stainless steel is a considerably more difficult task than brass certainly offers a number of appreciable improvements over the latter, more traditional material. The extra effort is rewarded by a more thorough shine that is present in case of polished stainless steel (when done right, that is), and also a greater resistance to rust.
But how does it know, you may wonder. Well, despite being equipped with state-of-the-art sensors, the Time Mover Handwound does require a bit of calibration before it can work properly. Firstly, owners need to input the power reserve of the watch so that the winder knows roughly how much winding is required to achieve maximum power reserve. Thereafter, it will wind the watch fully and then stop to allow it to run down to half its power reserve. It will then rewind the watch to maximum to accurately determine just how much winding is required to keep the watch at full and half wound states. Over time, it will accurately and reliably keep the watch at around 50% of its power reserve so as not to keep too much tension on the mainspring. There is also a “speed winding mode” that winds the watch quickly, should owners decide to want to wear the watch out.
The 2014 Asian Games are similar to the Olympics, but I am not an expert on the event. They have a range of sporting events and competitors from all over Asia come to win medals. Rather than the global appeal of the Olympics, the Asian Games appear to only include participants from countries on the Asian continent, and that includes India and the Middle East. Check out more information about the 2014 Asian Games on Wikipedia here.
Overall, I am very happy with the Gc-3. It is a versatile watch with a great aesthetic that I really enjoy having on my wrist. I was aware of the brand before this giveaway, but after winning the watch and spending some time with it, I have taken a good look at the rest of the collection, and I would urge you to have a look yourself, especially if you are looking for a good looking, entry-level timepiece, with a solid movement. Many thanks to Gc, and aBlogtoWatch for selecting me as January’s winner!

Swatch Scuba Libre Chlorofish Watch Review
Trademarks are the sort of things where "use it or lose it" applies; that is, if you don't defend the mark, you lose the right to it. As the owner of a mark, you have to defend against others with confusingly similar marks, especially in confusingly similar fields.
As of late, world timer and GMT watches have really captured my attention, and I've had the pleasure of checking out quite a few different ones from different brands as well. While I still think I prefer the tried-and-true method of a secondary GMT hand, there is something alluring about the use of a world city disk that allows you to see the time in any of the main 24 time zones around the world at a glance.
For a watch that has this much going on, and for a case with the extra curves included, you might be tempted to think that we've ended up with a monster of a watch. To the contrary, the relatively small movement (36.4mm by 9.8mm thick) allows for a case that's 43.5mm in diameter (and is 16.14mm thick). I won't try to pretend that this will wear as a slim dress piece. Not at all.
