GaryG has been to Monterey Car Week around 20 times now to meet up with friends and enjoy the array of cars and, more recently, watches on display. While in recent years they have focused on the “big” events at The Quail and Pebble Beach, this year the group decided to add some variety and go off the beaten path a bit – with satisfying results.
As material science progresses, the watch industry finds itself flush with ever more ways to disrupt the conventional norms of finishing and coating surfaces, many of which have persisted in traditional watchmaking for centuries.

Here are 10 things that caught our eyes at Dubai Watch Week 2017.
There was much to enjoy at Dubai Watch Week 2017’s day 2, but the best part wasn’t written on the formal schedule: it was the many moments throughout the day when little knots of people gathered here and there to chat about watches – and not just any people, but the who’s who of watchmaking from all over the world with “ordinary” watch fans welcomed to join in. For that alone, Dubai Watch Week is unlike any other horological event in the world.
The H. Moser & Cie. Venturer Concept for Only Watch expresses the idea of a truly minimalist dial reduced to its bare essentials while offering a carpe diem-style message that is gracefully accentuated by the vibrant red fumé dial.
