This icy looking Omega Speedmaster Dark Side Of The Moon-imagined watch is of course inspired by winter. Nordic winters are rather long, and of course rather icy. The concept reminds me a bit of Gustafsson & Sjogren watch designs when you look at use of a mesh metal bracelet and quasi-damascus steel look to the dial and case.
Nearly two years later, he finished the Tourbillon No.1 table clock with a calendar, moon phase, wind up indicator, thermometer and world time indications paired with a duplex tourbillon escapement. It was then succeeded by another tourbillon clock, albeit now with a full perpetual calendar, again, developed and crafted by him. The most interesting part from our perspective though, are not clocks but watches.While his clocks certainly proved his engineering abilities, from now on we will dedicate our attention solely to his wristwatches and how they are made.
In checking out the Pebble, it's very obvious that this is a fine watch. It's not just a fashion quartz by any means. Bulbul bought the best and sweated the details.
If you like the idea of a fun tourbillon at a price way under what any European tourbillon watch will cost the stuff like what Memorigin offers is an interesting horological diversion. Also, the execution of the Transformers theme is pretty nicely done actually. The matching straps aren't half bad either. Memorigin will produce just 50 pieces each in the Memorigin Transformers Tourbillon Series which offer an Optimus Prime or Bumblebee themed looked. Price for either is ,523 USD (,800 HKD). memorigin.com
Allow us to take this opportunity to not just review a unique version of the TAG Heuer Monaco, but also to review the collection as a whole. The Monaco is one of TAG Heuer's most famous watch families, sporting a cushion/square case which was originally debuted in 1969 - an important year for watch making, and an important year for Heuer. The Monaco watch gained fame when actor and driver Steven McQueen wore one in the 1970 race movie Le Mans. More recently, the Monaco was very prominently featured in the television show Breaking Bad. The watch was worn by the lead character Walter White (played by Bryan Cranston) in the last two seasons of the show.
Rather than increasing oscillator frequency, another way of improving accuracy in a quartz movement is to combat the error caused by temperature. Rolex appears to be the first to make advancements in this area and after several years of development released their thermocompensated Oysterquartz model calibre 5035 in 1977. Rolex realized that in order to achieve superior accuracy it needed both a high frequency oscillator, combined with some way to negate the effect of temperature changes. They did this by using a thermistor to sense the ambient temperature, this data was then sent to an electronic module, which then adjusted the voltage to the quartz crystal. Although Rolex has never stated an official accuracy specification, unofficially, around 60 seconds per year was to be expected. It was one of the most exceptionally made quartz watches and was discontinued in 2004.
While this watch is certainly one that has all manner of "gee whiz" factor going for it (and one I'm rather happy to see coming to fruition), there are plenty who would prefer a more, shall we say, traditional, watch. If that's you, and you'd still like to support development of the Cesium 133, they've got some interesting deals there as well. Well, one now at the time of this writing (the Bathys Lunar level is all snapped up). For 5, you can pick up the Benthic Ti with one of two dials.
Finally, the case on its sides and in between the lugs, as well as the bezel are all engraved and pierced to create a pattern which is then filled up with matching blue enamel. The result is a Duometre á Spherotourbillon which is all covered in beautiful blue enamel, and as such, which should always be handled with excessive care for the fragility of the material.
