LG G Watch R



Published on Aug 24, 2014


via appleinsider:

"Aside from the format change, however, the G Watch R appears to be a repackaged version of the original G Watch model. Both run a 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 chipset with 512MB of RAM, include 4GB of flash storage and come with interchangeable straps. The new version does feature a heart rate monitor built into the case back, as well as a physical power button that doubles as the watch's crown, much like the Moto 360."

OMEGA Speedmaster Apollo 11 45th Anniversary Limited Edition


"At 02:56 UTC on 21 July 1969, two NASA astronauts became the first human beings ever to set foot on the surface of a celestial body. The feat has been described as one of mankind’s crowning technological achievements and OMEGA was literally on hand on this historic occasion. Strapped around his spacesuit, Buzz Aldrin had an OMEGA Speedmaster Professional chronograph.

The OMEGA Speedmaster Professional Apollo 11 45th wristwatch commemorates the first lunar landing and celebrates its link to the iconic chronograph that was part of the adventure. Recalling the colours of the moon and the Apollo 11 lunar and command modules, this Limited Edition timepiece features a 42 mm completely brushed case with a touch of gold. The case is crafted from lightweight grade 2 titanium - a choice that was inspired by the troves of titanium ore that cover the Moon.

The black PVD dial, with its 30-minute and 12-hour recorders and small seconds sub-dial, has been produced using a special laser which creates the design elements on the watch’s face by removing the material surrounding the name, sub-dial numerals and hour markers. The indexes and hour, minute, seconds and sub-dial hands are crafted from 18K red gold and the central chronograph hand is red gold-plated.

Another striking feature of the Speedmaster Professional Apollo 11 45th Anniversary Limited Edition watch is its brown coated nylon fabric “NATO” strap which is inspired by the robust straps that have equipped the timepieces issued to military personnel since the Second World War.

This timepiece has been produced in an edition limited to 1,969 pieces; a number that reflects the significant year that the first humans walked on the Moon. The Speedmaster Professional Apollo 11 45th Anniversary Limited Edition wristwatch is fitted with calibre 1861, a manual-winding chronograph movement. It is offered with a two-year warranty and a special presentation box. This remarkable timepiece is water resistant to 5 bar (50 metres / 167 feet)."

THE CHARMING BIRD BY JAQUET DROZ

Published on Apr 24, 2013 Jaquet Droz·33 videos

"Jaquet Droz is very proud to introduce you to a revolutionary time piece on the occasion of the Baselword fair: The Charming Brid. The Charming Bird is the first singing bird automata wristwatch ever.

In line with this long tradition and to celebrate its 275th anniversary, the Charming Bird is the fourth installment of a watchmaking saga that began in 2010 with the introduction of miniature painting, followed by engraving and sculpture in 2011. Finally, the songbird celebrates the brand's DNA by reviving the techniques of the automaton and the miniature.

By combining them with the artistic skills of the Ateliers d'Art, it pays tribute to the continuity of the exceptional expertise perpetuated by Jaquet Droz."

STEINHART "MARINE Officer Bronze"


via STEINHART

"Swiss Made - 2 years warranty

The MARINE Officer Bronze is a modern interpretation of an observer chronograph, which was developed towards the end of World War II for deck officers of the Italian Navy. The wide bezel of the finely brushed full bronze case provides sufficient space for the engraved tachymeter scale, which can be used in conjunction with the chronograph to determine the speed of moving objects. The unsophisticated olive-green dial ensures good readability, which is also given in darkness due to the indices and brushed golden hands being painted with C3 Super LumiNova. Our MARINE Officer Bronze is powered by a wonderfully decorated Swiss chronograph module caliber, the Dubois Dépraz DD 2030, which is automatically wound by our skeletonized gold rotor. This process can be observed through the stainless steel encased glass case back by gently shaking the watch. The MARINE Officer Bronze is a real eye-catcher, and not only on the high seas a MUST-HAVE for ever watch-enthusiast and -collector!
