Panerai Luminor due
I've seen a number of steampunk and steampunk-esque watches in my day. None look quite like this. Or should I say that this Nemo Captain watch doesn't look like any of them? I actually think the watch is cool, and I certainly see the ship component inspired design elements. But would I go so far as to describe the Nemo Captain as a steampunk watch? Nope. But then again Thomas Prescher says that this is how he imagined Captain Nemo's watch in 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. You can't deny a man his imagination.
For the time being, the Arnold & Son Time Pyramid will only be available in 18k red gold. Moving forward we anticipate more versions of the Time Pyramid in other materials. Interestingly enough this watch is not a limited edition - meaning that at least for the near future, it will be part of Arnold & Son's standard collection.
For many years, Rolex deployant clasps stuck out awkwardly under your wrist. With the newest generation bracelets, they offer a much more clean profile - which was a welcome improvement. A lot of people buy the Rolex Submariner over other Rolex watches because of its Glidelock adjustment system. The idea is that you can micro-adjust the size of the bracelet within a few millimeters on the fly. This means that as your wrist naturally expands, you can re-size the bracelet with ease, or increase the size of the bracelet to be worn over a jacket or dive suit. The design and comfort of the bracelet should not be under-estimated, nor should you ignore these elements as a major selling point behind this model of Rolex watch. Sadly Rolex doesn't offer the Glidelock system with even similar watches such as the Explorer II - though you can get it in the beefier Deepsea models. As an interesting tangent, you should check out the spring-loaded system that Rolex/Tudor designed for the Pelagos here.
While there is still some question as to how successful the smartwatch segment will be, that hasn't stopped brands (mostly newer) from pushing innovation to get new models out on the market. Today's example has technical chops paired with design from a watch brand.
