Many people have asked what impact the world of 3D printing will have on the watch industry. While 3D printers are still relatively new, the allure of being able to produce watch movements and case parts immediately and locally is extremely tantalizing. Anyone who makes watches now will inform you that prototyping and production can take so long because going back and forth with suppliers and the companies who can make the parts you need is extremely time-consuming. Even large companies with onsite production still need to rely on the efforts of internal teams and traditional production techniques to prototype watches and movements.
In the pursuit of building a better mousetrap, Everest looks to enhance the Rolex wearing experience with their latest strap collection for Rolex watches. Coming September, Everest Bands will release their Everest Leather Series bringing another element of comfort and versatility to Rolex watches. This is in addition to Everest's rubber strap series for Rolex. The Everest Leather Series watchstrap combines the comfort of quality leather with the reliability of a solid 316L stainless steel end link, topped off with a replaceable 316L stainless steel tang buckle.
As I understand it, Nicholas went where most movement lovers go, and that is to the work of the late and great George Daniels. Many talented young watchmakers have found themselves "answering the Daniels call" by reading his texts and doing their best to create movements and parts on their own. Of course most fail, but that wasn't an option for Manousos. In fact, he was able to produce a working version of something that George Daniel invented, but only on paper.
UK watch retailer, The Watch Gallery has recently introduced its latest limited edition partnership, this time with Hublot. Following successful TWG limited edition pieces from brands like Zenith and Bremont, Hublot has produced two limited Classic Fusion models, a chronograph and an automatic three hander. Both models will feature the TWG signature blue on their seconds hands as well as the inclusion of blue tinted case back sapphire crystals. In addition to this distinctive use of color, this is also the first time that Hublot has produced 45mm Classic Fusion models in titanium with ceramic bezels.
With cone-shaped lugs and a width of 46 mm, the rose gold DB29 Maxichrono Tourbillon sports a large and distinctive case. Featuring a monopusher chronograph control, the Maxichrono Tourbillon is entirely controlled via the crown at three. Below the crown there is a small button that opens the rear pocketwatch-style door which covers the case back of the DB29. The rear panel is smooth, with no labels or text, and covers not only the complex architecture of the movement but also the only view of the tourbillon within.
The Longines Conquest Classic Chronograph is everything its name implies it to be: a tri-compax chronograph with traditional design elements, made as part of the brand's Conquest collection and hence styled to represent what Longines likes to call "sporting elegance." We went on to spend some wrist-time with it, as it was the timepiece handed out to the winning jockey of this year's stop in the Triple Crown race of thoroughbred horses. In 2014, Longines continued their long support of professional equestrian sport as the official timekeeper for the Triple Crown. And while California Chrome offered up a disappointing show at the Belmont Stakes, Longines stayed the course, as they have for well over one hundred years.
Chinese people still love watches though, and "shopping tourism" is still huge. From what I understand a huge percentage of the luxury watch sales in Europe and the United States are due to tourists - often Chinese - who come to the United States for good prices. In fact, from our own research it looks like the United States is currently the best place in the world to buy watches when it comes to prices.
Jörg is clearly no stranger to watch photography and many examples of his work can be seen on his website. Watches are notoriously difficult to photograph and it’s fascinating to see just how much effort is required to create those ultra-polished images.

Rpaige Wrocket Watch By Richard Paige Uses Vintage American Movements, Review
Here was the original post of the contest:
A detent escapement is used in some mechanical clocks and is considered very stable over time. The problem is that most of them must be very stable themselves, and movement of the clock would harm their operation. So the challenge in making a detent escapement for a wristwatch was making sure it could be moved and jolted around. Christophe Claret developed a new anti-shock system for the detent escapement so that it could be used in a wrist watch. I discuss more about detent versus lever escapements and what Christophe Claret did to incorporate them into the Maestoso watch in our earlier article on the watch linked to above.
We first thought the retail price was about 0 but then it turned out to be closer to 0. So we are simply saying between 100 - 200 Swiss Francs as we aren't sure about the final price at this time. As of publishing time Swatch hasn't put the price on their website. UPDATE: In Switzerland at least the retail price of Swatch Sistem51 watches is 150 Swiss Francs. Also, the watches are only currently available for sale in Switzerland. Swatch has announced that the first four models of the Sistem51 collection will be slowly released around the world in 2014. The Sistem51 is actually already delayed as it was supposed to be available for global sale at least a month ago for the 2013 Holiday shopping season. Yes I know, surprise surprise, delays in the Swiss watch industry.
Rolex uses machines in the process for sure. In fact, Rolex easily has the most sophisticated watch making machinery in the world. The robots and other automated tasks are really used for tasks that humans aren't as good at. These include sorting, filing, cataloging, and very delicate procedures that involve the type of care you want a machine to handle. Most of these machines are still human-operated though. And everything from Rolex movements to bracelets are assembled by hand. A machine however helps with doing things such as applying the right pressure when attaching pins, aligning parts, and pressing down hands. Having said that, all Rolex watch hands are still set by hand via a trained technician.
Why are there so many brands that follow this formula? Well, it really has to do with popularity of the military/diver-style beater watch. Brands like Traser and Luminox made the "several hundred dollar tritium-lit military watch" a timepiece of choice for many men who want something durable and functional for daily wear. The military-esque angle makes for a good macho appeal, while the rest is about having a reliable timepiece that doesn't bore you to death each time you look at it. Let's just say that people like watches like this for a lot of the same reasons they wear boots more often than they actually need to.
The Kairos smartwatch announced recently combines the best of both worlds. A smart watch, and a competent mechanical watch. Smartwatches, as we've seen before, are hard to make well.
The very Swiss and very new Revelation is one of the latter, as this more recently founded brand comes to the battle of luxury sports chronographs with a high quality package and a technical feat that I just could not ever get bored of. But, just like the "big ones," each and every small brand has its own story, so before we dive into the details of the watch at hand, let's quickly acquaint ourselves with Revelation and the people behind it.
