Another interesting art watch is the last one shown being the Rotonde de Cartier 42mm watch, white gold, tiger motif, enamel grisaille. By the way, each of the 2012 Cartier art collection watches contain Cartier in-house made caliber 430 MC or 9601 MC manually wound mechanical movements. Enamel grisaille is basically a form on black and gray enamel work - here used to create the face of a tiger. The result is a crisp animal in black and white tones, with an almost life-like face aside from the watch hands  sticking out of the predatory cat's nose. I try to convince myself they look like additional whiskers but alas, they only tell the time. Good for big game hunters back at the safari lodge, this watch will be limited to 100 pieces and reportedly requires about 40 hours of enameling work on each one.

Looks like Nautica will offer the NMX 650 in serious colors such as blue, orange, and yellow. I hope they are also planning on something a bit more sober such as a black colored model as they did with the NSR 100. While there are some nice manly colors here, a lot of the NSR 100 and NMX 650 pieces look like Oprah Magazine chose the tones for them. The overall designs are pretty good, and the inexpensive prices will make them appealing as fashion pieces or beaters (or gifts). Prices for all of these should be from about 0 - 0 if my guess is correct.

Houston Speedmaster Event Report

The coolest part of the watch is easily the RM053 movement. It is inclined to a 30 degree angle and looks as such when seen through the rear sapphire caseback window. You've never quite seen a movement that looks like this. The tourbillon is visible through the dial to the left under the seconds hand. Not too easy to see, but it is there. The movement is manually wound and has 48 hours of power reserve.

The below essay is a contribution from Evan Tich:

If you haven't really investigated upgrading or switching your watch strap, it is a good idea. Not only can a new strap dramatically enliven a tired watch, but playing with different types of straps can really change the look of a watch in ways that you might not be able to anticipate.

Your Chance To Own A Flown Speedmaster X-33

A. Lange & Söhne Datograph Up/Down Watch Hands-On Hands-On

Part of Bremont's product strategy includes producing special military-only editions of their watches, the ALT1-WT was originally seen dressed-for-duty as the C-17 Globemaster. Public response to the Globemaster was enough to warrant Bremont producing the civilian version featured in this review. The ALT1-WT takes its place in the Bremont family among fan favorites like the ALT1-C and ALT1-P military inspired chronographs. Personally, I feel the watch world has been thoroughly inundated with marketing fluff concerning watches which have been designed for military, or designed with help from various military groups. Provided that the watch in question is a good watch, I don't actually care if it is the same watch worn by the Navy Seals, GSG 9 or even the Girl Guides. That said, Bremont is able to use strong connections with many military outfits to test their watches, vet new technologies, or soft-launch new designs. From the ejection-seat-ready shock system of the MBII to the gauge-like design of the U2, I believe that Bremont's genuine passion for military, especially for pilots and aircraft, makes for a better final product.

Hands-On With The Speedmaster Moonphase Co-Axial Master Chronometer in Platinum

Inside the Horizon KAWS watch is a Swiss ETA 2892 automatic mechanical movement. The case is water resistant to 50 meters and the watch feels good on the wrist - as most all Ikepod watches are. The unique creation will speak the loudest to KAWS fans and collectors. Especially the more dedicated collectors who purchase KAWS' original works. This interesting collaboration watch is a good thing, and I like it when artists unfamiliar with the wrist watch world get involved with these types of projects. Price for the Ikepod Horizon by KAWS watches is ,000 each.

Christie's Speedmaster 50 Auction Report

Author Mark Carson's note: I grew up in the ancient days before electronic calculators. My father, being an engineer, used slide rules and taught me how to use one when I was about 12. I preferred circular slide rules. While their inner scales lack precision, an advantage of a circular slide run is that you never have to move the center slide back to the other end when you exceed the scale on one end.  And that makes them good for  visualizing that a logarithmic scale conceptually have no beginning or end,  it just keeps rolling around from 1.0 to, well, 1.0 at the next order of magnitude. Sometimes people ask, how will I know if the answer is 1.1 or 11 or 111, etc. As my father used to drill into me, you have to "know" the answer  already (roughly) in your head. A slide rule only gives you precision. That is, you know for a restaurant tab plus a 15% tip, the total won't be either 23 cents or 0. So, it must be logically be .

Tissot T-Race MotoGP 2012 Automatic Chronograph Watch Review

Tissot T-Race MotoGP 2012 Automatic Chronograph Watch Review

So the ISA movement gives you two time zones, the second of which is digital-only, a stopwatch and alarm. Nothing exotic here, though I'd love it if they added a countdown timer. The analog portion is synchronized to the digital, and there are separate bidirectional motors for each hand, so when the hands move out of the way it only takes 2-3 seconds. Quite fun to watch.

This watch doesn't have the famous tire tread style rubber strap of many Mille Miglia watches. Here Chopard uses a quite attractive padded black leather strap with red contrast stitching to match the dial. The strap pieces are also punched with portholes to make them more racing and sport themed. The buckle is also in titanium and has an engraved Chopard logo.
