In a nutshell, and based upon my above statement, I feel that separately, the case design with dial and the DW 8030 movement are interesting and laudable creations. When put together, they make for a lovely design, but I still don't feel that the dial design of the DeWitt Academia Grand Tourbillon is able to fully demonstrate the technical and legible intelligence of the jumping hour and minute hands. It would actually be easy for DeWitt to come out with a "purer" version of the watch that remedies this.

Baselworld 2015 sees the release of the De Bethune DBS Tourbillon, a futuristic homage to the brand's recent past. The De Bethune DBS Tourbillon's raison d’etre is to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the De Bethune DBS, and to simultaneously showcase how far this ambitious company has come in the last decade. Founded in 2002, the manufacture has created a recognizable brand aesthetic that counts distinctive size, astute visual consistency, and surprisingly unusual color schemes amongst its most eye-catching traits. By adding a tourbillon to the De Bethune DBS model, De Bethune is updating one of its more iconic pieces for their avid fans.

However, the dial is where all the action is at. To commemorate SG50, Ball has used micro gas tubes to spell out SG at 12 o’clock and 50 at 6 o’clock. For those keeping track, this is the first time Ball has arranged its micro gas tubes to form letters of the alphabet. And as a result of this, the Ball Fireman Night Train SG50 also holds the record for most number of micro gas tubes used in Ball Watch, at a whopping 93. Legibility in both day and night is not an issue. And at night, the watch really comes alive, putting on quite a “light show,” and is really fun and useful. I got a kick out of showing it off to friends at the cinema. And in case you were wondering, the Ball Fireman Night Train DLC on which this watch is based on has 75 micro gas tubes.

So now in 2015, Tiffany & Co. watches return with the larger Tiffany & Co. CT60 collection (initially) that is very much a back-to-the-basics concept, even though the case designs and detailing very much fit into the Tiffany & Co. timepiece brand DNA (if you are familiar with many of their previous offerings). My all-time favorite Tiffany & Co. watch is the Jorg Hysek designed Streamerica, which I included in my list of "6 watches that I want them to make again" here - which initially came out in 1993. For 2015, the Tiffany & Co. CT60 collection is inspired both by Tiffany & Co. founder Charles Lewis Tiffany ("CT") as well as a wrist watch Tiffany & Co. gave to Franklin D. Roosevelt (FDR) in 1945. The "60" part of the Tiffany & Co. CT60 name refers to 60 seconds (one minute) and the famous term - "The New York Minute" - attributed to Charles Lewis Tiffany who made the clever marketing decision to put a clock above the Tiffany & Co. store in Manhattan.

I don't know if the above really explains why a Richard Mille tourbillon needs to cost upwards of 0,000, but I think it does explain how it requires exponential investment to add just a few percentage points of "refinement" to a very high end watch. Take a Richard Mille watch under a loupe (magnifier), and you'll be impressed at how well they do things correctly with an incredible attention to detail. You don't have to love their aesthetics, but they aren't joined by competitors offering the same product for a fraction of the price. In fact, when people ask me for a budget Richard Mille, I tell them to buy an Hublot.

Aside from the design, the Bremont ALT1-ZT offers the same multi-role functionality of the ALT1-Z. You get a 12-hour chronograph, independent GMT hand with Roto-Click adjustable 24-hour bezel and a date at three, all managed by Bremont's BE-54AE, which is their expression of an ETA 7750 with a GMT module. This platform offers a huge amount of functionality and, with the adjustable 24-hour bezel, you can even track a third timezone if the need should arise.

Even though a Roger Dubuis Excalibur 42 Automatic Skeleton watch won’t cost you the expected 0,000 (and up), it does inherently come with luxury pricing – but pricing that is a bit more down to earth. Prices for the Roger Dubuis Excalibur 42 Automatic Skeleton watch start at ,500 in DLC-coated titanium and go up to ,000 in 18k pink gold (without diamonds). rogerdubuis.com

That same Roger Dubuis Excalibur Spider Skeleton Flying Tourbillon watch exists in a more "traditionally" sporty Roger Dubuis Excalibur case (ref. DBEX0479) that is without the black coating and in a brushed titanium case. Here, you get what is one of the most proactive luxury sport-lifestyle watches in the world, in my opinion. The 45mm-wide Roger Dubuis Excalibur case is a bold (and remarkably comfortable) statement on the wrist and has a pseudo-diver's style bezel design (non-rotating) that alludes to an active lifestyle for the wearer. On the rubber strap, you get to wear this big, lightweight timepiece that feels like a sport watch, but really contains a meticulously constructed and hand-finished skeletonzied tourbillon movement. Yes, it is all about show - but at the end of the day, there is still impressive technique and a true horological spirit to the piece.

The new T-Touch system continues to use an AR-coated sapphire crystal and activation button for the touch screen system. What is new compared to the outgoing Tissot T-Touch Expert is the improved responsiveness of the screen as well as the extremely fast movement of the hands. This is something that Tissot also included in the T-Race Touch watch that is lower priced, has fewer features, and does not include solar power generation. The fast moving hands of the Tissot T-Touch Expert Solar and improved movement performance alone are reasons enough to upgrade - the solar power generation is really the icing on the cake.

A simple analysis of Apple's marketing efforts shows a clever and very wise multi-front approach to spreading news and desire for the Apple Watch. While the Apple Watch debut in September 2014 (and subsequent announcements) have been designed to get the gadget and tech community speculating about the mid-2015 Apple Watch release, Apple has, at the same time, been focusing considerable elements on the fashion industry. It is also important to note that the luxury watch industry has been focusing on marketing toward the fashion industry for almost a decade now, and for the last two years, that focus has been heavily on women. The luxury watch industry hopes that for 2015 and beyond, women, as well as men, will be major growth areas of luxury watch consumption. It is interesting that both Apple (the luxury smartwatch maker) and the traditional high-end watch industry are focusing on women almost at the same time.

At a glance, the Bovet Recital 12 and Recital 15 watch models are very similar. The case is the same 42mm wide style, though the Bovet Recital 15 is a bit thicker, due to the extra complication of the jumping hour and retrograde minute functions. In truth, I think it was very strange from a marketing perspective for Bovet to release both of the watches during the same year, and for the numbers in their names to also be so far apart. Though, that is sort of how Bovet works, being independently owned and operated. So they can do whatever they want.

In a nutshell, and based upon my above statement, I feel that separately, the case design with dial and the DW 8030 movement are interesting and laudable creations. When put together, they make for a lovely design, but I still don't feel that the dial design of the DeWitt Academia Grand Tourbillon is able to fully demonstrate the technical and legible intelligence of the jumping hour and minute hands. It would actually be easy for DeWitt to come out with a "purer" version of the watch that remedies this.

The man "Roger Dubuis" is still around but was not with his eponymously named brand for a long time. He sold the company to investors who later sold it to Richemont. A few years ago, the Roger Dubuis company hired back the man to serve a mostly ceremonial role within the company - but one that does at least appear to have Mr. Dubuis act, in a sense, as the shepherd of the company he started. The Roger Dubuis Hommage collection of watches are nearest to his original designs.

The Van Cleef & Arpels Heure d’Ici & Heure d’Ailleurs is the newest addition to VC&A’s Pierre Arpels Collection, a small but impressive assortment of men’s timepieces amongst a predominantly feminine line. Since 1949, VC&A has offered men’s timepieces, but this piece represents a serious departure for the manufacture. While most pieces in the Pierre Arpels collection are relatively simple two hand designs with manually wound movements, the Van Cleef & Arpels Heure d’Ici & Heure d’Ailleurs (which translates to “Time Here & Time Elsewhere”) is the first dual time complication, also featuring an automatic movement with double jumping digital hour display and retrograde minutes.

The Omega caliber 8900 is a rather lovely movement, and the 8901 adds some 18k Sedna gold elements. The 8900 shares a lot with the 8500 architecture, but, as noted, boasts anti-magnetic properties as well as the "Master" designation. The "Master" part of the name implies that it uses the non-magnetic parts, making for an extremely anti-magnetic timepiece (and of course, it is visible through the sapphire crystal caseback). Operating at 3.5Hz, the 8900 offers 60 hours of power reserve through two mainspring barrels and, functionally, offers the time and date on the dial.

For a long time I've been after a cool sporty dive watch with a mother-of-pearl dial. One that is nevertheless masculine... I think with the Kentex Marineman Seahorse I got exactly what I was asking for. The naturally glossy and slightly colorful dial material looks attractive and gives the otherwise utilitarian design a decorative look.
