According to Dedegumo, they hire artisans who are Japanese trained to make all the little parts for these fascinating timepieces. All of this seems to be based on some old technique from Kyoto - so I will just take their word for it. These artisans reside in the boutiques and are making watches all the time in there while you shop. Using many of the same tools as watch makers, they create custom little parts and designs for these artistic timepiece creations.
The movement also has an aged look to it - steampunk lovers will rejoice. If you don't find appeal in the half bubble moonphase and the less than precise indicator of time, the good news is that Konstantin Chaykin will use the case design as a model for future watches that will feature other complications. These guys are just getting started with the Lunokhod legacy. I think that, with some inspiration, this collection could be interesting for years to come. Price, however, isn't going to be on the affordable side for most people. If my memory serves correctly these will go for about 100,000 Swiss Francs a piece.
The Concepto movement will be a 1,500 Swiss Franc upgrade to any Maurice de Mauriac chronograph watch. You can get it in new watches, as well as upgrade an existing Maurice de Mauriac timepiece. Of course you don't need to use the movement with a semi-skeletonized dial, but Maurice de Mauriac does have them available (as seen above). Another new option is the solid 18k rose gold exhibition caseback for Mauric de Mauriac watches that is 3,500 Swiss Francs.

IWC Replica Watches Tech Review
I just had to have this watch when I saw it. It was like Flash Gordon on my wrist. This lighting bolt Swatch is a clever version of the famous watch designed - not by Flash Gordon - but by fashion designer Jeremy Scott. The bold looking timepiece is, by all accounts, a fashion watch. It is for show and fun and truly succeeds at being a spectacle.
The watch itself is placed in an 18k pink gold case that is matched to a black alligator strap. Not sure about the case width or thickness though - but this isn't going to be a small timepiece. It really is an incredible machine and I can't wait to get some hands-on time with one.
For this collection there will be three models available. Each are limited editions. Actually all Romain Jerome watches are limited editions. The primary case material options are steel (ref. RJ.T.TO.CH.003.01), PVD black steel (ref. RJ.T.TO.CH.001.01), and 18k red gold (ref. RJ.T.TO.CH.002.01).
I love writing about Invicta watches because you readers get so worked up about them with your polarizing viewpoints. Some of you swear by Invicta carrying around your collection of 47 'ShopNBC specials' in a duffel bag at all times, while other wouldn't touch them with their worst enemy's wrist. It is true that Invicta has a lot of hit and misses, as well as a broad range prices to go with their watches. Sometimes it is actually not fair, because you can't compare a ,000 Invicta with a one - but they both have the same name on the dial, so what are you to do?
Here is some watch porn for you. Custom watch modifier Black-Out Concept USA is one of a handful of companies that can competently modify Rolex watches. Their newest mod is a limited edition called the Paul Newman Tribute Daytona. Based on a modern steel Rolex Daytona Cosmograph, BOC coats the case with DLC black and customizes the dial to look like one of the famous Paul Newman Daytona watches. I think it looks pretty sweet looking - and Black-Out Concept did a nice job making it Newmanish. Don't forget that original Paul Newman Daytonas are very expensive (and much smaller in size that this one). Price for this limited edition Paul Newman Tribute Daytona watch is ,000. If you want one or more info contact BOC at the link above or call (857) 204-0837. Don't forget that Black-Out Concept has no relationship with Rolex.
