Available in a black or a silver dial, the black feels sportier while the silver feels somewhat more classic. If you don't want the added weight of a steel bracelet, or simply prefer a strap, Alpina is also offering the Alpina Alpiner 4 Flyback Chronograph with a black alligator strap. With pricing starting at ,895 USD, the Alpina Alpiner 4 Flyback chronograph is priced aggressively and is only a bit more expensive than a base Omega Speedmaster, which is 42mm wide, uses a manually wound (non-flyback) chronograph movement and retails for around 00. For something closer in size to the Alpina, consider the Speedmaster Co-Axial chronograph at 44.25mm, which has a list price of 00.

Omega "Master Chronometer" movements will first be sent to COSC for Chronometer certification and then cased into watches and given an additional certification process (which is the one referred to above that has been approved by the Swiss government agency METAS). Rolex is actually more or less doing the same thing with some of their new movements - namely, the 3255. Though Rolex doesn't have a fancy new name like "Co-Axial Master Chronometer." Omega has mentioned that average rate results for caliber 8900 (and 8901) automatic movements that are Co-Axial Master Chronometer watches are - 0, + 5 seconds a day. At least you know your Omega Globemaster Co-Axial Master Chronometer will never run slow.
In the continued pursuit of accuracy, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Duometre Spherotourbillon Moon is host to the same flyback seconds reset feature found on the original Spherotourbillon. The flyback seconds is controlled by the pusher at two o'clock and allows you to reset the seconds display to zero (to sync with an external time source) without interrupting the balance. This means you can synchronize to the nearest second without affecting the overall timekeeping of the watch.
Kentex is the Japanese watch company you probably haven't heard of, but they should be on your radar. In fact, I actually had to travel to Asia to learn about the brand. It wasn't until I first attended the Hong Kong Watch & Clock Fair in 2012 that I had the pleasure of learning about this impressive watch maker. Unlike the bigger Japanese watch companies like Seiko, Citizen, Orient, and Casio, I don't believe that Kentex produces their own movements. In fact, this Kentex Marineman Seahorse includes a Seiko mechanical movement (more on that later). What Kentex does excel at is offering remarkably well-composed and good-quality watches for fair prices - something which at its core is one of the biggest reasons to get a Japanese-made timepiece. More so (and in my opinion), Kentex watch designs are a bit more reminiscent of European designs, being a bit less "Japanese" in flavor.
Of course, something like the Zenith Pilot Type 20 Grand Feu ref. 04.2420.5011/17.C714 watch is going to be hard to find and expensive. It is limited to just 10 pieces with a price of $165,000. zenith-watches.com

It is interesting to further speculate why the Museum Dial watch did so well in the 1990s - an era when digital timepiece usage was at an all time high, and when consumers started to wear watches less. The Movado Museum Dial was the poster child of wearing watches for style and emotional reasons versus sheer utility. I recall seeing these watches on countless people and always thinking "that looks really nice, but I have no idea what time it is." In an era when people started to have other sources of time in addition to their wrist watch, style and design started to become more important than the sheer utilitarian value of wearing a timepiece. In the 2000s, this concept became even more pronounced, as timepieces began to rapidly consume the attention of the high-luxury world.
Manfredi Jewels: The majority of our clients live within a forty mile radius of the store. That being said, we have collectors that live around the globe. Probably about 50% of our clients are very savvy about watches and own five watches or more.
Well, toeing that line might feel a little hypocritical, if you've ever lusted over a luxury quartz watch. I certainly have. I even used one in my previous example: the Breitling B55 Connected is a luxury quartz watch that connects to your smart phone using similar, if not identical technology to the Bulgari Diagono Magnesium Concept. There are plenty of purists who dismiss quartz as it is. I've never been that strict on the matter, because I tend to care more about what the watch stands for. That said, there comes a point when even I believe a line should be drawn.
This happens because sometimes a watch company simply doesn't have the resources or time to make a complicated, tiny machine work. Don't forget that these are machines with a lot of working pieces, and sometimes they can take years to get right. In an environment with few regulations and only a small group of people to "make happy," there are instances when the world's most impressive watches don't ever work really impressively. Like I said, I am not pointing fingers to Patek Philippe, as they are not the type of brand to have this reputation, but this conduct occurs in the industry because most brands see the mere existence of these mega-complicated watches as being of paramount importance to the eyes of watch lovers, compared to the weight given to durability experienced by the actual owners.
If you are not entirely familiar with the Swatch Touch you can find our detailed review of it here. Swatch did announce the Swatch Touch Liquid Metal recently, which was to be a very limited edition Touch with Bluetooth connectivity. Now, Swatch has debuted the Swatch Touch Zero One – accompanied by a single page press document that shares very few exact details about Swatch's entry; but with a little extra research we did get much closer to the full picture. Here's what we know.
Publishing update: while I stand by everything I wrote in this review (first drafted in November 2014), it's worth mentioning upfront that Garmin has released early in 2015 the Fenix 3, which is an updated version that seems to address many of the shortcomings of the Fenix 2 and adding various features to make it an even better multi-sports watch. If I end up upgrading to the Fenix 3, I will make sure to review it here. I also have a Garmin 920xt which has many of the same features of the Fenix 3. I will likely review the 920xt first. However, all that said, please note that Garmin still sells the Fenix 2 and the price remains the same while the Fenix 3's price starts at 0 more than the 2.
The L688 has been a strong movement for Longines, as they attempt to corner the market at their price point. Running at 4 Hz, the L688 offers a maximum chronograph record of 12 hours and has a power reserve of 54 hours.
Artur Akmaev began his journey studying the art of jewelry design, taking classes on hand engraving and attaining a degree as a Jeweler. It wasn’t until his continued education at the University of Applied Arts in Moscow that his passion for watches and watchmaking quickly grew. His early work began on a robust Russian movement known as the Poljot 3105, as part of a project that was created for his personal enjoyment – and that fueled what would soon become a long line of beautifully crafted pieces.

A lesser company, if charged with producing something like the Grandmaster Chime, would have likely ended up with a dial extremely difficult to read. The main dial with the moon phase indicator on the 5175 actually has a lot of various windows, sub-dials, and indicators. Patek Philippe cleverly designed them to all work together while also preserving a lot of clarity and relative simplicity to the dial. Sadly, this talent is often overlooked by collectors because they really boil down to the whole "less is more" thing. Just be aware that making all the information readable and logical on the various dials of the Patek Philippe Grandmaster Chime 5175 was due to great effort by Patek Philippe.
Once we consider how every single component has to fit and work together, from every screw securing bridges and plates to all the wheels and teeth meshing, it is easy to understand why it takes about two years of work to create a perfectly functioning time-only movement. The only movement components purchased from suppliers are some of the jewels, the escape wheel, as well as the mainspring and balance springs. Everything else, up to the threads on the smallest screw, through the pinions, to the pallet jewels on the pallet fork are made in-house. The point to be seen here is the fact that, yes, one man can make just about every single component in a wristwatch movement, and that often begins with crafting the necessary tools to begin with. To put the amount of work required into perspective, let's now discover how one vital component in the escapement, the pallet fork, goes from design through production, all the way to the finished piece.
2015 sees the release of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Grande Tradition Minute Repeater watch. Jaeger-LeCoultre is one of the most revered names in watchmaking and is fondly referred to as “La Grande Maison,” which can be loosely translated as The Great Manufacture. In its rich 182-year history, the company has created over a thousand calibers, registered 400 or so patents and has numerous inventions credited to its name. And for the most part of the past century, it even provided movement blanks to Patek Philippe, Audemars Piguet, and Vacheron Constantin. The caliber 920 is a great example of this and is still used even today by Audemars Piguet in Reference 15202 Extra-thin Royal Oak, also known as the “Jumbo.”
