Bell & Ross Chronograph Aeronavale

Posted on 29 November 2006 by John Biggs


Mmmm… tasty. A new B&R. This is an ETA base caliber, probably a 7750, with 42 hour power reserve. It costs about $3,500, which actually isn’t that bad, and looks like a monster.

Harry Winston Ocean Diver

Looks like Harry has made a nice diver chrono in honor of Andre Agassi. Yep, that’s right. Good old Andre. It sold at auction for $110,000. They better include all of Andre’s hair in that little package.

Another new for today – Linde Werdelin

Posted on 17 November 2006 by John Biggs

So a new watch maker Linde Werdelin has come to our attention. While I dont love the Flash website, I do like the look of a number of their models.
They have 2 basic models – the Elemental and Two-Timer, the Elemental uses an ETA 2892-2 elaborée mechanical movement whilst the Two-Timer has an ETA 2893-2 elaborée mechanical movement to provide two time zones. Each has a 42-hour power reserve, a calendar at 4 o’clock – and a personalised LINDE WERDELIN oscillating weight.
There is an add on for either of these models which turns the watch into what they are calling a Biformeter essentially is is an add on computer which can display various functions, like a compass, altimeter, barometer and even heart rate. One of the founders, Morten Linde believes: “Analogue is how you read watches. Digital is how you assimilate technical details.” and so they have created this add on to enable you to do this. The technology behind the computer unit is pretty spiffy too including “- A state-of-the-art wireless sensor network allows up to 1 Mbit/second data transfer at a distance of up to 50 metres. The network is compatible with numerous types of sensor and input/output devices.”

Anyway, enough of my rambing, head on over to and check them out.

Have a great weekend.
