The Chapter Two watch will retail for ,000 and features the 18 rose gold case (white gold will likely be available in the future as well) and automatic movement with triple date complication (big date, day of the week, month). I've written about the Chapter Two watch pretty extensively, and covered it here, which includes the original video of the watch by Maitres du Temps themselves. I still get excited seeing how decorated the stylized rotor is visible through the back of the watch.
The Chapter One/Two watch cases are still some of the only tonneau shaped cases that I could see myself wearing. Typically I don’t like the barrel shape, but it is done so nicely here, I can’t help but want to wear one. It is important that the roller indicators on the top and bottom help serve to break up the long shape. So even though the watch is in a tonneau-shaped case, the face is basically a square, and the watch face is round. This mixture of shapes helps create a piece that does in fact look more like a work of functional art on your wrist rather than just a nice watch. Along those lines, you can see in the video that this watch is in fact the design result of collaborating watch making masters. If they don't know what they are doing when it comes to watch making - no one does.
Thus, the Time Tutelary One (Single) watch winder is a good choice for an inexpensive winder for your growing, or already large watch collection. Price is currently about 25 Sterling Pounds (including shipping) if you are located in the UK at Watch-Winder.co.uk. Otherwise you can find this watch at other retailers online.
If you are thinking that this watch is sort of an odd one out for the Franck Muller line, you are right. The obvious "instrument" look of the watch is something new, and is likely a subtle hint from Franck Muller that watches are tools meant to be used and do have a functional component that is more important that just the mere look of the watch. Let's hope the message get's across.
These cufflinks (cuff links? Space, no space?) might make you blush, but they are nice right? To me they combine a few thinks I like. Let's delay the obvious for now and focus on the awesome integration of the automatic rotors in the cufflinks. These are new 18k rose gold men's cufflinks from Milus, a Swiss watch maker who also dabbles in jewelry and accessories. These nice looking men's accessories here are called Kama Sutra Butterfly cufflinks and are made in a casting process to help reproduce the look of a watch movement, which is the point. The cufflinks feature beautiful real rotating rotors (which wind nothing) that attached like normal rotors with a ball bearing mount. The casted gold has perlage polish and the look of a real movement engraved in the design. How cool! I've seen cufflinks similar to this, but none as well done. I imagine price will be up there.
My particular Globemaster is the last of the "Diver's GMTs", meaning that it has a 60-minute countdown bezel along with the internal GMT hand. That's something I've rarely, if ever, seen before and I jumped right on it. Bernhardt's bezels, while traditionally coin-edged, have a unique design, and a nice, tight ratchet. I believe Fred's current stock of Globemasters, in different colors (black or blue dial and multi-colored bezels) have a 24-hour bezel.
This is probably the nicest Daniel Roth watch I know of, which is saying a lot since Daniel Roth watches are usually REALLY NICE. No, it isn't the fanciest, or most complex watch - and to a large degree the watch is a total contradiction. For example, the name "Chronosprint" makes you think of measuring quick short times, when in reality, it is just the opposite with this self described chronograph for measuring longer measurements of time (because it does not count the seconds). Only hours and minutes are measures in the subsidiary dial with two hands that replicates the chronograph look of some modern Patek Philippe chronograph watches, along with a few other makes. The dial that looks like a smaller watch face has one hand to measure minutes (60), and another to measure hours (12). Daniel Roth describes this complication as a “simple but effective” feature of the watch. The movement is exclusive to this Endurer Chronosprint, and is the DR 1306 automatic mechanical calibre. Complications include, hour, minute, chronograph (no seconds in the watch), and a big date. Further, the chronograph is operated with just one button that cycles through start, stop, and reset.
This is a pretty incredible new timepiece from Angular Momentum. The figurine is actually part of the watch, and is situated on one of Angular Momentum’s new Time Gallery watch cases. Even if you have no idea what Il Moretto (aka "moretto Veneziano"), or a Morcic figure is, this is a pretty significant departure from your typical luxury watch. Let’s go back in time for a moment a few hundred years to Italy and Croatia to understand the development of this symbol. A Morcic is a bust figure of a Moor. The figures always have Caucasian features with dark skin, and are luxuriously dressed while wearing a turban headdress. The idea of the figure was to be “exotic,” and was typically used a good luck charm. Sailors began to have Il Moretto figurines as earrings or pendants as a ward against pirates (mostly Turkish) , who often plagued sailors who sailed along the African coast and in the Mediterranean sea.
I bet many of you don't know how to feel about a line of watches emblazoned with a cartoon cat. In Diamonds. But, think about it. This is a nearly perfect creation.
Another unique detail on the Moonflower is that the Hours, Minutes, and Seconds indicators have been replaced by traditional hands with 3 separate discs that move in harmony with the movement of the watch.
