DualTow by Cristophe Claret

Posted on 27 May 2009 by John Biggs

Man alive: look at this monster. It’s the DualTow watch by Cristophe Claret. This watch has a single-pusher chronograph and striking mechanism to chime when you activate the chronograph. The coolest additions are the two belt displays showing the hours and minutes. Then you’ve got a tourbillon to round things out.

It’s a manual-wind movement with 50-hour reserve and only 68 will be made.

Ladies and gentlemen, the ugliest watch ever produced

Posted on 26 May 2009 by John Biggs

fuglyDiesel, what were you thinking? Admittedly you don’t make the prettiest watches around, but I find it amazing that you are responsible for this abomination. This is like trying to cross an elephant with a pig, it might seem like a good idea, but no good can come from it.

This is not a photo-chop, just a poor design decision; even down to the half-leather, half-steel band. Retail on this ugly POS is $219.00, but honestly, you shouldn’t buy it even if it was available for $10.00.

Just say no to bad design! This is how the Edsel came to be, people!

Inside the Blu MT3 Majesty

Posted on 22 May 2009 by John Biggs

First off, why didn’t anyone tell me about TimeTV? These guys have created a video blog about watches and the production quality is excellent. They just came back from Basel and I’ll try to share a few videos with you guys once I dig through their mess of video.

Second off, this is the Blu MT3 Majesty Tourbillon, a watch that uses an amazingly small and light Tourbillon movement to reduce the total weight of the watch to mere grams. The bugger doesn’t even really have a face, just a little hand that rides the Tourbillon wheel. Very cool.

The watch costs 205,000 euro. Just sayin’.

Debaufre updates their fatty Aviator line

Posted on 22 May 2009 by John Biggs

Debaufre, a watch company that uses great movements inside cool cases, has redone their line to reflect a more personal touch – a great move considering their Aviator-8s were just on the edge of copyright infringement. The new models have a curved case with a different, more attractive marker font and come in all of the Aircraft-8 colors. The new models also have an exhibition back and run a hand-wind Unitas movement.

Pop over to their store right now to grab the watch for $485. More specs after the jump.

Hunting For A Tide Watch

Posted on 21 May 2009 by John Biggs

Nixon Lodown Titanium

I recently developed a burning need for a watch that displays tides. No, not the University of Alabama Crimson Tides, the ocean’s tides. High tide, low tide, slack tide, whether the tide is coming in or going out have much more import for me than ever before.

This calls for a new watch.

Phosphor launches two new e-ink watch styles

Posted on 19 May 2009 by John Biggs

digital-hour

We liked the original Phosphor e-ink watch and these two new models, one complete with calendar.

The Digital Hour model has two views – a digital view and and a “regulator” view with circular hour register as well as a minutes register. It starts at $175.

The Calendar model is a bit weirder. The full calendar appears on the face along with the current time. It starts at $185. All of the watches come on leather, rubber, or steel bands.

Both models are are available now.

Your bucket of Bell&Ross crazy just arrived

Posted on 11 May 2009 by John Biggs

emailing-airborne-04052009

Not content with making me happy with their GMT, Bell&Ross has just released this weird piece for Colette, some sort of artsy shop in Paris. This is some kind of tribute to Airborne Rangers, I suspect, with a little skull and two sword hands. Not sure how much it would cost in Earth money but I’m willing to bet a few grand.

Kazimon Eins B

Posted on 11 May 2009 by John Biggs

kazimon-eins-b

The Eins B from Kazimon Watches in Netherland is a handsome watch with a little extra flair. This 39mm watch with a black face, white markings and hands, and red highlights has a good balance of class and color. An ETA 2824-2 movement in a stainless steel case, with a sapphire crystal, and rated to 100m water resistence. The watches are made in Germany for this Dutch Company. It is available directly from the manufacturer for 790 Euros, a fair price for a European made watch with a Swiss movement.
