Likely inspired by the idea of "if one is good then two is better," Bremont wants to make the most of this co-operation by releasing a watch dedicated to this partnership. A limited edition of 12 pieces in polished steel, the watch will be based on the 43 millimeter wide ALT1-C Classic watch, powered by the BE-50AE, ETA 7750-based movement. It will also feature a piece of oak cask used in the maturation of whiskies for Chivas Regal, along with the signature of James and John Chivas etched on the rotor. In essence, we are looking at a watch co-operation between a watch brand and a whiskey maker, spiced up with the more unique idea of a watch design-inspired gift tin.

While one indicator tells you how much power (out of a total of about 39 hours) is left in the mainspring barrel to power the watch, the winding efficiency indicator tells you how efficiently you have been adding power to the movement over time. Basically, the more active you are, the more you are helping to wind the watch. Active people will see the hand in the green. Inactive people whose wrist motion activity is not enough to put power into the movement will see the hands in or closer to the red region of the dial. Thus, because it is essentially measuring the motion of your wrist, it measures an element of the wearer's physical activity.

In wearing this watch, it is one that I immediately became comfortable with. It takes a little remembering to recall which beep means the alarm is on (or off), but past that, the functionality is something we are all familiar with. With its weight of 166g, it is a watch you feel on the wrist, but it wasn't overbearing by any means. And, should you want to lighten the load a bit, you could certainly opt for any one of the straps Gavox sells to replace the steel bracelet. With the case dimensions coming in a 41mm wide by 12mm thick, it is one that easily slips under a shirt cuff, and works well in a variety of situations. The brushed finish to the case and bracelet gives a bit of a muted shine that works well with the matte dial.

The baseplate, to me, was one of the most complex components to recreate in this watch. There are so many features and very tight tolerances, that even the smallest imperfection will render the movement completely useless. After watching the Urwerk UR-202 promotional video dozens of times and analyzing it frame by frame, I was able to better understand the exact workings of this complex barrel assembly. As one of the hour barrels revolves towards the crown, it is greeted by a peg. The peg catches a small opening in the barrel allowing it to revolve 90 degrees.

The case design will be familiar to seasoned watch enthusiasts: it is the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Concept with its unusual, angular lug structure. As per the norm, it is this case that carries the brand's experimental calibers, which pave its way into uncharted territories of fine watchmaking. Ask any master watchmaker what they consider to be the most difficult-to-make complication, and chances are that they will either mention a chiming complication (the minute repeater or grand sonnerie), or the split-seconds chronograph.

When Cartier officially debuted the Cartier Calibre Diver, aBlogtoWatch went hands-on here, earlier in 2014. There you can see hands-on images of the steel version as well as this 18k rose gold version. Why are we reviewing the gold version when this is meant to be a sports watch? Well, first of all, I think that the black dial mixed with rose gold case is very striking, and second, I feel that since this is a luxury lifestyle sports watch, why not take the luxury element all the way.

It isn't until 50 meters of water resistance that a watch is deemed OK for light swimming or being under any water. Some brands feel that 50 meters of water resistance is OK for showering with your watch on, but we generally advise against that. Why? Well, the heat pressure of shower water create a special situation that should generally be avoided as it can force water into a watch and overstress parts like rubber gaskets.

After a while, I finally went to a jewelry store to buy one, but the salesman told me that there was this even newer, more accurate watch which used a quartz crystal. I wondered why anyone would put a rock (OK, mineral) in a watch and how that would do anything useful. The tuning fork, I could sort of understand. I ended up with the quartz watch, taking it on faith that this was even newer tech. But I always considered the original Accutron a lost love.

We have mentioned the unusual match between the movement's and the case's hue, so let's see some of the more intricate details of the latter. The titanium case is expectedly light, making the rather large and thick watch wear more comfortably than it would in steel or gold. The polishing on the sides and lugs is beautifully executed, giving a deep shine to these surfaces. Both sides have a brushed stripe that runs between, but does not extend to the slightly curved lugs. The lugs feature large screws in their sides, which may be misleading as the straps can be removed with spring loaded bars (although that is a tool-free process, as a little notch exposed on the inside of the strap lets one remove the strap easily). The large screws set in the lugs then serve no function, and while they do further extend the masculine appearance of the Mecanograph, I do wonder how these sleek lugs would appear with solid, polished sides.

Back to the watches, the Chopard Mille Miglia 2014 Race Editions, which come in steel or 18k rose gold, have 42 mm cases and are 12.3 mm thick. Chopard has fitted sapphire crystals front and back and both versions come with an off-white dial and a really sharp matte brown leather strap with case-matched buckle.

While the Armin Strom Skeleton Pure watches also have skeletonized movements and hand-engraving, the results are more modern and less "decorative," without the intricate patterns and textures found on the surfaces of the movement. "Pure" in this instance refers to the simplicity of the design and how Armin Strom was able to cut down the ARM09 movement to its bare minimum. In fact, they renamed the movement in the Armin Strom Skeleton Pure watches to the ARM09-S ("s" for skeleton) for its minimalized look at feel.

Rpaige has assorted an amazing collection of antique pocket watch movements and dials over the years. Each is faithfully restored, but also very much an historic item. While the movements are each in fine working order, one can visually see the patina of time and signs of actual use. One of the most interesting parts of the movements is how nicely they are decorated. The movement restoration cleans them to back the original luster without losing the intricate engraving designs. In some instances, Rpaige offers even higher-grade movements that are less common and more impressively detailed.

aBlogtoWatch: So, is Jackmond more like a museum than a store per se?

That is one way to time things. If you want, though, you can actually use the Devon Works Tread 2 Shining as a chronograph. That's right - they managed to tuck a chronograph function into the watch. Now, as someone who normally is not a fan of chronos, this was a very lovely surprise. For starters, it is a function that is tucked away, and does not inform the design of the watch. Next, if you want to use the function, it is a very conscious action to get it going, and you can hear and feel it running - so you are not likely to forget it.

The The World's Most Expensive Watches is as much about understanding the modern ultra-high-end watch industry as it is about understanding the most notable items to come out of it. Timepieces, in many respects, represent the most niche of high-end gadgets, and I am proud to offer some of the most interesting, and most noteworthy of them in this book published by Antique Collector's Club, London.

The second reason Apple's approach is interesting, is that this surprising display may hint at some new distribution channels for the Cupertino company's Watch: according to Dan Frommer of Quartz, colette is the sort of high-fashion store that many expect to be a key part of Apple’s retail strategy for the Apple Watch, especially the luxury “Edition” version. The store presently sells sells an unlocked iPhone 6 for €1,500 (,895), and fancy jeweled iPhone 5S devices for as much as €3,100 (,920). Clearly, colette is not a newcomer to offering high-end Apple products, and such an opportunity implies that this and comparable stores can be expected to carry the Apple Watch.

Single-handed watches are not particularly common, but they are popular among certain watch lovers. Long ago, it used to be that pocket watches only had one hand. That was mainly because they were simply not accurate enough to even display the minutes. There was a time when being accurate to 30 minutes a day was pretty good. The inclusion of a minute hand a few hundred years ago was a big deal, and really ushered in the era of modern timekeeping. Today, single-handed watches are less about considering the past, and more about the unique way you can conceive the day through the way that single-handed watches that display the time. Note that single-handed watches come with either 12 or 24 hour dial layouts, the Konstantin Chaykin Genius Temporis is among the former.
