breitling-maintenance

Somehow, I’ve managed to run into a lack of ideas to cover in Historical Horology, so I’m going run a few videos for you here of how Breitling maintains and polishes their watches, should you decide to send yours in for service.  Not 100% in line with what we’ve covered in this series before, but they interesting (and easy) viewing.

5 Hands, No Waiting, the De Bethune DB29

Posted on 18 April 2014 by Matt Himmelstein

DeBethune_DB29MaxichronoTourbillon_PR

To title this article, I had the shorten the name a bit, because it is quite a mouthful.  The full name of the watch is the DB29 Maxichrono Tourbillon, and there is a lot going on with this timepiece.  From the name alone, we know that the watch has two complications, a chronograph and a tourbillon.  Then looking at those lovely blued hands and the sexy curved dial, we see no subdials, so all the time keeping and chrono functions are built off a single axis.

TRIWA’s ‘Sort of Black’ Flips it Around

Posted on 17 April 2014 by Matt Himmelstein

Sort-of-Black-Gold-Chrono_04

TRIWA (Transforming the Industry of Watches) is a Scandinavian watch company more aligned with the fashion of watches than the intricacies of the mechanics.  They sell in fashion boutiques and follow the fashion calendar, with two releases a year.  For the Spring collection, they have taken their existing Sort of Black Watch (all black with a bit of gold on the hands) and reversed the color scheme, producing a gold watch with a bit of black on the hands, in both a 3-hander and chronograph version.

Miró Watches, Hands On

Posted on 15 April 2014 by Matt Himmelstein

Miró Watches is a relatively new brand, founded in 2012, bringing a clean, minimalist look to their watches.  Though the name is taken from a Spanish (Catalonian) Surrealist Artist, the design cues for the watch are pure Scandinavian, simple and functional.  Miró was kind enough to loan me a quartz watch in the Creme/Honey combination, but there are 5 different dial colors and 4 different strap options, so you have plenty of options.

Do you want an accurate watch?  Is a certified automatic too inaccurate and a quartz too, well, uninteresting?  How about an atomic clock.  Not a quartz watch that uses the atomic clock broadcasts, but an honest to goodness atomic clock that you can wear on your wrist?  Well Bathys has the Kickstarter project for you, the World’s 1st Atomic Wristwatch.

Historical Horology: Why Do We Say “O’ Clock”?

Posted on 13 April 2014 by Patrick Kansa

clock-340x455

Frankly, this is a question I hadn’t ever given much thought about it – until I ran across an article that raised the question, and then answered it. Now, making a quick jump to say that the phrase likely comes from “of clock” or “of the clock” isn’t too much of a stretch. But why would that even be of a concern? Where else would you be telling the time from? Continue Reading
