New Bulova Accutron II UHF Sport Watches For Baselworld 2015 Watch Releases

Currently, the Vacheron Constantin Overseas is available in a range of versions in steel as well as 18k rose gold. Of course, there is the neat bracelet option as well, which I happen to like, but the leather or rubber strap is more casual and sporty, offering a more simple fit. Dial colors are this lovely blue in the ref. 49150/B01A-9745 as seen here, as well as gray, black, and white. Additional colors will be available later in 2015, which will once again add some accents colors to the Overseas collection that have been missing from the main collection for a while. Perhaps they will be in anticipation of a future overall Overseas update?

Additionally, a low train count could have been selected to conserve power, as higher operating frequencies drain a watch's power reserve. The V-11 already features 2 barrels out of necessity - the alarm needs its own power source - and the movement designers might have dropped the vph in an attempt to reduce the strain on the mainsprings. That's a decision I can't really fault, given this watch's primary complication is the alarm.

Louis Vuitton is part of the larger LVMH (Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy) group which also owns major watch makers such as Zenith, Hublot, TAG Heuer, and Bulgari. It isn't as though LVMH really needs more watches, but a brand as powerful as Louis Vuitton doesn't do too poorly with whatever it decides to offer, and its watches are certainly among its more exclusive offerings. So let's take a look at these new DLC-coated black steel Louis Vuitton Tambour éVolution GMT watches for 2015 and who they might be good for.

The last time we visited a mechanical Citizen was with the Signature Grand Touring Sport (hands-on here). The Signature Grand Touring Sport had a three-hand automatic, and in the Citizen Signature Grand Classic, we have a brand new automatic movement with the caliber 9184. Visible through the sapphire crystal caseback on the rear of the steel case, the 9184 automatic movement operates at 4Hz with a 40 hour power reserve and offers the time, synchronized 24-hour hand (that acts as an AM/PM indicator), and my favorite complication, a power reserve indicator. It is a bit rare to find power reserve indicators on automatic watches, but you have one here at a pretty nice price.

Founded in 1860 as Uhrenmanufaktur Heuer AG in St-Imier, Switzerland, by Edouard Heuer, the watch maker soon made a name for itself manufacturing chronographs. One of its greatest inventions, the oscillating pinion, is still widely used today, and it went on to make many other groundbreaking and historically important chronographs. From 1962 to 1982, Heuer was run by Jack Heuer, the great-grandson of Edouard Heuer. However, Jack Heuer was forced to give up the company under tragic circumstances in 1982. The modern name of TAG Heuer came about after the TAG Group acquired a majority stake in the company in 1985. Today, the company is owned by LVMH, who also owns other watch brands like Hublot, Zenith, and Bulgari.

New Victorinox Swiss Army INOX Watches For 2015 With Red, Remade, Naimakka Models Hands-On

The new Alpina Alpiner 4 Flyback Chronograph is 44mm wide in stainless steel with with a sapphire crystal and a screw down crown. While not a dive watch, water resistance is 100m (330ft) and the case back is solid (presumably to ensure anti-magnetism). Lume is provided by SuperLuminova and legibility is very good.

Speaking of indices, the options include the more traditional stick hour markers which are said to have improved lume - a welcome development despite the rather formal appearance of the Rolex Day-Date. On the other hand, you have the also hand-applied Roman numerals, each of which are made up of several faceted pieces of gold, resulting in a "deconstructed" look. Despite the historic flair of the Roman numerals, this design looks highly technical and perhaps a bit more masculine, particularly compared to the simple way how Roman numerals are usually constructed.

I look forward to playing with the Breitling B55 Connected myself, since I am excited to consider the possibilities. I have a feeling that with an app controlling the timepiece's functions via Bluetooth, and a battery that last months (as opposed to hours) this is going to be a very interesting merger of the smartwatch world and the traditional Swiss sports watch world. If there is a high-end quartz watch to own in 2015, it just might be the Breitling B55 Connected. No price yet, but I have a feeling it will be similar to that of the B50. So figure a price in the ,000 range for the Breitling B55 Connected in the black titanium case on a strap. breitling.com

The dial is incredibly attractive too. With it’s black/grey/orange color scheme, plus the small seconds at 3 and the 45 minute totalizer at 9, you can see the homage to the older version. The chronograph hand stands out from the rest of the dial and allows for pretty accurate timing even at a glance. The lume on this is incredible as well, just look at it on those home-plate looking markers and on the hands: very cool.

There is a lot to like about the design of the Uhrenfabrik Junghans Max Bill range. The cool, clean lines, the wearability, the timelessness, the nicely finished in-house movement, and, most crucially perhaps, the price. The three ladies watches are a snip at 7. The gents quartz is only slightly more, with a price of 3. Next in line is the gents automatic, which comes in at ,049.49, and is only topped by the Chronoscope, which is priced at ,105.40 for the white dial version, ,171.40 with the black dial, and ,237.40 if you want the black dial on the Milanese bracelet.  junghans.de

As these carvings are done by hand (and a skilled hand at that), there are definitely some unique possibilities. If you have a particular watch that you love, Baz Persaud can likely create something that will match what you're thinking of (and even create a lapel pin for it as well). We were able to spend time with quite a few different models from their collection, and I want to start with the one I spent a lot of time with, their chronograph. At first, your eye tries to figure out what specific watch they pay homage to, but that turns out to be a futile exercise. As Baz Persaud president William S. Lerner puts it, the "cufflinks are based on a combination of Rolex, Zenith, Omega, etc - I wanted them to be generic."

And there you have it – the only "major" complaint I have with the watch. Sure, I would not have minded seeing a more original font being used for the numerals (especially with Team Ayoub being designers), but that is a minor thing, and I can only guess we will see them spread their wings with future designs. Getting past the nit-picking, and viewing the watch as an overall whole, there really is a lot to like. The design manages to be unique without venturing into the realm of outlandish, and truly does well as an homage to the D.

What that actually means, is that the completely mechanical movement features a number of overlapping and rotating discs which make for a digital-like time display – something reminiscent of what you would find on much, much more usual items like, say, an alarm clock, microwave oven or your phone. It's a deceptively simple concept, because to create the digital layout and jumping effect in a mechanical timepiece, a 514-component caliber had to be created. After a limited production run in white gold, rose gold and titanium, 4N will debut a 46mm wide, sapphire-cased version at BaselWorld 2015.

The workshop will take place on Saturday, April 25th, 2015, between 10am and 2pm, at Vacheron Constantin Boutique, 729 Madison Avenue at 64th Street, New York, New York. You can turn up whenever you like between those hours, but please let them know that you and your mini-micro-mechanic will be attending. Get in touch with VC, either by emailing them at rsvp@vacheron-constantin.com, or by calling Daniel Adams at 212-891-2307.

Let me stop here for a moment and remind you that Bremont is an independently owned brand. They are not an internet-based startup, nor are they part of a large industry conglomerate. They are producing watches in serious volume at a level unparalleled by any other independent and are less than a decade old. They have a real footprint, with production facilities and brand boutiques (their first North American boutique is opening in New York City in April of 2015), and aren’t being funded or supported with the billions of dollars and resources available to nearly every other significant brand in their segment. Furthermore, they are telling their own story, without any heritage or history (manufactured or otherwise). This is an uphill battle, a tremendous undertaking, and in my opinion, Bremont is squarely on the path.

Seeing how tritium gas tubes are made will surely remain among the coolest experiences I have had on these horology-related manufacture visits. Tritium gas tubes are these extremely tiny (about 0.5mm thick and at least 1.3mm long) glass tubes that are filled with (mildly) radioactive tritium gas – although, as we will see, there is a lot more to them than that. What these tubes do is that they are guaranteed to glow brightly and continuously for at least 10 years, without having to be charged by external light (like the luminescent material used on other watches), or needing to be activated with electricity or otherwise. These little tubes just glow, unstoppably, for up to 20 years, no matter what.

Inside the 2015 Omega Seamaster Ploprof 1200M Co-Axial Master Chronometer watch is the Omega in-house made caliber 8912 automatic movement. This is the "no date" version of the 8900 and operates at 3.5Hz with a power reserve of 60 hours. It is really a great movement for all those times you are concerned about harsh magnetic fields while diving 1000 meters or more under watch. Are those not situations you frequently find yourself in?

People come to me and say, “My watch is not keeping time.” So I usually ask them what they do. There are loads of jobs where people come into contact with machines or appliances that could magnetize the watch: doctors work around x-rays, people that travel through airports a lot going through x-rays, electricians work with electrical appliances with strong magnetic fields, sound engineers around stereos, all these things can affect the watch. Sometimes people tell me they take it off for the night, so I ask them where they put it and they say, “Next to the alarm clock.” Well, that’s got a magnetic field too, and so does your phone.

The new 39mm Rolex Oyster Perpetual joins the 26, 31 and 34mm versions that were announced last year.  Being the same size as the Rolex Explorer, the 39mm Rolex Oyster Perpetual uses the same movement, Rolex's calibre 3132. It's a simple but robust automatic movement offering three hands, no date, and COSC certification.
