With the P.4000, Panerai managed to create a new caliber that does more than just allow the engineers to stretch their muscles a bit. The P.4000, thanks to its bi-directionally winding micro-rotor. which is literally sunken into the plane of the movement's top plate, is a mere 3.95 millimeter thin, which for an automatic movement, really is a very compact size. This, as we shall see, directly (and very positively) affects the overall thickness of the watch to which it is fitted.

The Rotonde de Cartier Tourbillon Chronograph does what it says on the cover: its hand-wound movement offers a one-minute tourbillon exposed at the 9 o'clock position of the dial, a 30-minute chronograph counter at 3, and a most welcome power reserve indicator at 6, to help keep track of the movement's impressive eight days' worth of power reserve. Despite that impressive – albeit nothing groundbreaking – list of features, the movement inside this piece is interesting for another reason.

The A. Lange & Söhne Zeitwerk Minute Repeater features the same case used in the Zeitwerk Striking Time and measures 44.2mm wide. It is available only in platinum. And instead of a conventional slide, the A. Lange & Söhne Zeitwerk Minute Repeater uses an elaborate pusher system at 10 o’clock for activating the striking mechanism.

Breitling Cockpit B50 Watch With Exclusive New SuperQuartz Movement Watch Releases

To fully appreciate the Michael Bastian MB Chronowing smartwatch, you need to first understand how it came to be and the three entities involved in its development and design. The ménage à trois is almost like the plot of a television show. aBlogtoWatch originally debuted the Michael Bastian MB Chronowing smartwatch here.

The Origin Story

Ariel Adams: When Apple announced the Apple Watch, they stated that it was the "most personal product" they've ever produced. This goes to the notion that smartwatches are technology you must wear, and they must be fashionable. What separates a "personal design" from an "impersonal design?"

Recently, aBlogtoWatch reader Griffin C. from Chicago, Illinois, joined me here in Los Angeles for a few days of geeking-out watchnerd-style and to attend The World's Most Expensive Watches book party with us. This was a result of Griffin winning a giveaway prize early in the year that we had intended to experience with him over the summer. Unfortunately, despite our best efforts, the originally planned trip to the watch maker RGM in Pennsylvania was cancelled by RGM, and resulted in a dispute between the company and aBlogtoWatch that the online watch community has discussed a few months ago. Nevertheless, despite the setbacks, I had an obligation to Griffin and wanted to make the most out of the situation.

A simple button on the case where the lug structure is can be pressed to release the strap. This means that wearers can swap out straps easily and securely - a feature I wish most luxury watches had. Assuming you have a series of straps to go with the watch, this makes a lot of sense. On the down side, it means you can't use just any strap you want, given that the connector is proprietary. Furthermore, the Hublot straps are tapered and have other features which won't be easy to find in after-market straps. Let me put it this way, if you are seriously into high-end sports watches and straps, you'll need to find a pretty serious custom strap maker...

Next is the consumer sales site, which has grown from being a flash sale website for men into a more established e-commerce platform for all things fashion. Gilt is a modern success story born of consumer demand for discounts, fast paced buying, and a perception of a cool and curated selection of items that allows guys to feel like someone is doing the shopping for them. As I understand it, Gilt was approached by HP who wanted, not only a sales partner, but a suggestion on who might design the exterior of their upcoming smartwatch user interface. The time frame to production was perhaps half a year from the time time HP decided to involve an external partner.

People with deep pockets have the luxury of buying many of the new watches they want without having to think too much about it. That is just a fact and something the luxury watch industry is well aware of. Because these types of people are more concerned with "cool, exclusive, new, etc..." versus mere price, many high-end watch makers seek to appeal to them in areas outside of offering a good price for a good watch. What has made this worse is that watches that were once much more affordable 5 to 15 years ago are now sometimes two to four times their historic prices.

We brought you the Fiona Kruger Skull Watch for Halloween, but with Halloween behind us, the Christmas season is upon us. Poor Thanksgiving gets gobbled up by the ever-earlier end of the year holidays. Just when you are sure the Swiss watch industry is uber serious, along comes the Swatch Holiday Twist watch. This holiday special watch for 2014 is a limited edition of 14,999 (no, not 15,000) watches. Limited Edition numbers for Swatch mean something different than they do for Mrs. Kruger. But that means that this watch for 0 is within reach of more than the "One Percenters" who might be picking up a Patek Philippe or A. Lange & Sohne as a stocking stuffer.

ABTW: Do you serve mostly locals or tourists, or is it a good mix? Also, what percentage of your customers would you call "knowledgeable watch collectors?"

Now, if you were paying attention to my article closely, you will have picked up on some key words that will hint at the price. The Ambrelus Dreadnought has a starting price of ,995 (I say starting price, because it sounds like there are customization options as well). Now, this is well outside the realm of what we would normally recommend to pay for a good, reliable, winder. As with watches, however, those sort of considerations sort of fly out the door with a winder like this.

Austria-based Habring2 had a lot to celebrate in 2014. For one, this year marks the tenth anniversary of this little watch manufacture that was established by Maria and Richard Habring and, more importantly, the brand has debuted its first fully in-house designed movement and the first watch that comes equipped with it: the Habring2 Felix. We were among the few to attend the unveiling event and visit the Habring2 manufacture in Völkermarkt, Austria. So, beyond an extensive review of the very first production model of this important release within the market of boutique watch brands, we will also take a look into the workshops where all Habring2 watches are made.

Ressence's other major model right now is the Type 3. His first major watch, (which we just called the Ressence watch), was a success but is no longer produced, as he finished the run. Looking back on things, Benoit admits that he may have entered the "limited edition" thing a bit hastily, but like a good student, he has become keen to learn from the watch industry.

Cellini Jewelers: I think watch lovers in all cities are approximately the same with similar tastes and desires.

Regardless your design choices, the Martenero Ace watch comes in a 42 millimeters wide 316L stainless steel case, that measures just about 50mm from lug to lug and is a very wearable 12.5mm thick. Thanks to a screw-down crown, it offers 100 meters of water resistance, making it suitable for swimming and snorkeling, lending the watch a reassuring robustness. The quality of the case is surprisingly high, and once we consider the price point, it becomes all the more impressive.
