5. TAG Heuer, New Aquaracers, A Smartwatch, Team Oracle, And The America’s Cup In San Francisco
The picture above is an early drawing of what will be the Porsche Design Timepiece No. 1, the first watch actually officially made by Porsche Design as we understand it. Porsche Design has been involved in watchmaking since 1972, and has worked with a range of different watch companies to produce its watch designs. These have included brands such as Orfina, IWC, and Eterna over the years, but a new era of in-house production will come to Porsche Design soon.
To begin, readers might have noticed the new Master Co-Axial denotation. The reason for this is to distinguish Omega’s newer watches by its ability to resist magnetic fields. You see, the new Omega Seamaster 300 Master Co-Axial features Omega’s Master Co-Axial calibre 8400, the same used in the Aqua Terra >15,000 Gauss watch, which also means that the new Omega Seamaster 300 Master Co-Axial is also capable of resisting magnetic field of up to 15,000 gauss. The calibre 8400 is also COSC-certified and has a power reserve of 60 hours. Going forward, Omega plans to use this new anti-magnetic calibre in more watches.
5. Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe Flyback Chronograph Watch Hands-On
This watch is very much about clarity. The black face and body is heavily contrasted by the red and white hands and detailing, making telling the time very easy indeed. This is further exemplified by the real trick this watch has. The tritium gas tubes, marking the indices and on each of the hands, make it very easy to see what the time is in the dark, particularly as the tube at the 12 o’clock position is red, whilst the others are white. There’s even a marker on the zero position on the bezel, though, oddly, not at the 20 minute mark. It’s the first watch I’ve seen with this technology and I’m very impressed, as it’s far better than the lume on any other watch I’ve seen and lasts all the way through the night. If you have a job where you work in the dark a lot this could well be the watch for you.

Mayer's complaint paints Maron as the type of industry expert who not only should have known better, but did know better. In one of the causes of action, Mayer accuses Maron of fraud, which requires specific knowledge of the false information delivered to Mayer about the nature and authenticity of the watches. Therefore, Mayer not only accuses Maron of selling him watches that were not 100% authentic as promised, but also knowing that he was selling Mayer inauthentic timepieces.
