In essence, if you like its discreet design and straight-forward functionality, we can say that you will certainly not be disappointed if you put your money towards the entry-level Rolex in 2015, i.e., the Rolex Oyster Perpetual 39mm 114300 in steel – priced, again, at ,700. rolex.com
The bulk of what we know to be the traditional movement is actually in the lower segment of the case. The upper and lower segments, while mounted into the central spine, are actually "connected" via a network of magnets that allow the movement to interface with the dial system, despite it being sealed off and filled with oil.
Stepan Sarpaneva: I would like to find an Audemars Piguet Royal Oak. Not just any Royal Oak, though - the 1972 Jumbo version in steel. Of course, if I did find one, I would probably fall in love with something else to go searching for.
The latest news in this regard, as macrumors.com has reported it here, is that the Apple Watch is also appearing in the March 2015 issue of Vogue magazine as a more traditional advertisement. Now, Apple is taking the expected move of engaging in a more traditional marketing campaign to push the idea of the Apple Watch to the mainstream female consumer - a demographic who is known to seek "social and fashion acceptance" from fashion authorities such as Vogue. The placement of the advertisement in the March 2015 US version of Vogue should also be a clear sign that the Apple Watch will be available for sale soon. Several sources believe that the Apple Watch will begin to ship and be available for purchase in April 2015.

Louis Vuitton also decided to add a new version of its pretty awesome Tambour Spin Time watch (first covered here) to the Tambour éVolution in Black collection. The Louis Vuitton Spin Time was first introduced in 2010, and that first version is still my favorite. The 2015 Louis Vuitton Tambour éVolution Spin Time GMT in Black is different from the original model in some ways, but it does retain the core concept - which is to display the time in a second time zone via small cubes on the dial that turn around when it is that hour. The new Spin Time dial has been highly minimalized, and the in-house made calibre LV111 automatic movement produced by Louis Vuitton is different from that in the original Spin Time. What is different is that now the second time zone cubes are adjusted using the crown, whereas in previous Spin Time models, there were pushers on the left of the case to advance the second time zone forward or backward.
Chopard, for example, uses four barrels (2 x 2 paired barrels) for their Quattro system to get eight days of power reserve, and the 50 days of power reserve in the Hublot LaFerrari comes from 11 stacked mainspring barrels. H. Moser & Cie gets away with seven days of power reserve with a double barrel of paired springs and a movement with a steady operating frequency of 18,000 bph. That's a "slower" movement compared to the 28,800 bph (beats per hour) of most "standard" mechanical movements, but I found the H. Moser & Cie Endeavour Perpetual Calendar to be pretty accurate. H. Moser & Cie even uses a fancy "Original Straumann Hairspring" with a Breguet overcoil in the regulation system to further maintain accuracy over time.
