Emmanuel Bouchet Complication One with blue case and dial

Funky Colors For Emmanuel Bouchet’s Head-Turning Complication One

We are big fans of Bouchet’s work in general and the ingeniously complicated Complication One in particular.

What we were shown at Baselworld 2016, though, was truly imaginative: funky new, definitely out-of-the-ordinary colors for such a serious and technical timepiece. Take a look a springtime on the wrist with these new versions of the Complication One.

Jaguar F-Pace: C’mon, Bremont, Let’s See What You Can Do With This

/
My biggest concern with the Jaguar F-Pace was actually with the styling: Jaguars have always been elegant creatures – and an SUV must be one of the least elegant automobiles there is. But in the capable hands of Ian Callum, Jaguar’s design director, who hates SUVs as much as I do, the result is a car that fits beautifully in Jaguar’s current lineup while maintaining a certain feline elegance.

The A. Lange & Söhne Zeitwerk Handwerkskunst: I Can Just Feel It!

/
The A. Lange & Söhne Zeitwerk was already an icon of modern haute horlogerie thanks to its debut in 2008 of the first instantaneously jumping digital minutes and hours display. Little could anyone have predicted the release of the sensational Zeitwerk Handwerkskunst edition four years later.

Does Hand Finishing Matter? A Collector’s View Of Movement Decoration (Archive)

/
Like many people, my starting point for serious watches was with a well-priced brand long known for its expertise in developing movements, justly viewed as offering good value for money – but not necessarily for the refinement of its movement finishing, at least on its less expensive pieces. What have I learned since then?

Can't Put Your Finger On It? Caption Competition #33

/
I saw this "hand" with disconcertingly realistic fingers impatiently tapping at the MB&F M.A.D.Gallery in Geneva. Entitled "Fingers Mk III by Nik Ramage for Laikingland," it is actually a piece of playful mechanical art. But what else might you use a handy device like this for? Leave your suggestions in the comments.

My Vote For The 5 Ugliest Watches Ever

/
As the saying goes, “There’s an ass for every seat.” I still find it so hard to believe that some watch designs are ever even considered, much less actually produced and ultimately purchased. In fairness, the following list may not actually contain the five ugliest watches ever, but they sure aren’t easy on the eyes.

James Heeley Sel Marin: The Smell Of Summer

Lemon and Italian bergamot were used as the top notes for the James Heeley Sel Marin to provide freshness. It's easy to imagine being on the Hamptons constantly exposed to the ocean breeze when you sniff it. But what else makes this my perfect summer scent?

"Whether collecting art or watches, when I fall in love with something, then I need to understand, I need to research deeply," Mo Coppeletta explains.

A Watch Collection Begins: GaryG And His Bucherer Chronometer

Just as the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step, a collection, no matter its eventual size or value, begins with a single watch. This is the story of the first watch that I bought for myself, one that I still own and wear 45 years later: a chronometer bearing the Bucherer name.

Attentive readers may have already noticed "Roland Iten" engraved on this prototype device, a name synonymous with mechanical luxuries for gentlemen. But what on earth is this device for?

Antoine Preziuso’s Stella Polare Tourbillon Muonionalusta Fell From Heaven

Despite all its scholarly technology, I find Antoine Preziuso's Stella Polare Tourbillon Muonionalusta to be far more wearable for slimmer wrists than some of Antoine Preziuso’s other creations. And a meteorite on the wrist is the culmination of Preziuso's journey to capture a shooting star.
