You can disagree with me but I think that watches containing hand-painted dials are pretty cool. Especially when the dials depict actually masculine things like dragons. Most of these watches seem to be of flowers, fairies, or family portraits. I can dig these. Not on a daily basis, but I can dig these pretty well. […]

Here is another artful creation from Angular Momentum that has caught my eye. Using beautiful Damascus steel, the La Boulle Classic Damascus watch combines the unique type of metal work with Angular Momentum’s common disc display dial and case. The dial is purely minimalistic. A black sapphire crystal has a window opening to a white […]
I love unique watches. That isn’t to say I love “wild” watches that barely function in any utilitarian manner, but rather that I like unique watches that perform well but look different enough you might need a double take. This is the case with this Angular Momentum AXIS/XXXIII Champlevé Lumineuse watch. The vital emphasis on […]
This Halloween I’d like to present you with two creepy watches from Angular Momentum. Creepy yes, but in a more subtle “Swiss way.” The one that creeps me out most is the “Little Devil” watch – with images of a maniacal looking infant laughing over hell fire. But let’s get back to the “phenakistoscope” part […]
I really think that everyone needs a wildly well-lumed “Émail-lumineuse” -based watch by Angular Momentum. The compound is a special enamel and luminant mixture that they do so well. You’ve seen lume, and then you’ve seen Angular Momentum lume. You’ll be reminded of the Jungle scenes at night in the new Avatar movie. See what […]
Angular Momentum’s newest timepiece collection is based on something very Japanese. Maybe Seiko or Citizen will be pissed? Angular Momentum’s Urushi watch collection uses just that, the ancient natural Japanese lacquer. Urushi actually comes from a tree and is likely a specialized sap from a tree native to Japan, sometimes called the Varnish or Lacquer […]
Out of the four new watches in this collection from Swiss Angular Momentum I like the painting of the Kingfisher bird the best. The little guy has a nice proud look and is wonderfully rendered in relative miniature on the reserve of the sapphire crystal. You don’t get one of the Angular Momentum Artisan Collection […]
Angular Momentum is about to release a sensational dive watch the likes of which I’ve never seen before. Most of Angular Momentum’s design are polarizing, so I don’t expect each of your to like this watch, but enough of you will appreciate the interesting concepts that went into it. Like the Pita Barcelona Oceana watch, […]
Angular Momentum Ãˆglomisé The Animal Portrait & Exotic Birds Collection Watches Available On James List
Swiss Angular Momentum is of the most experimental and artistic of all watch companies out there. Especially when it comes to sheer volume on interesting watches. Using the reserve sapphire crystal painting technique called Ãˆglomisé, Angular Momentum has a plethora of fascinating styles and watches with paintings on them that you’ll likely not see anywhere. […]
This watch is a true modern classic, in the most traditional sense of the term. The watch emphasizes design elements made popular by “classic” watches from the 1950s and 1960s, brought to life again beautifully in a modern timepiece. No doubt you can realize that just by looking at this watch, and for those reasons […]
This is a pretty incredible new timepiece from Angular Momentum. The figurine is actually part of the watch, and is situated on one of Angular Momentum’s new Time Gallery watch cases. Even if you have no idea what Il Moretto (aka “moretto Veneziano”), or a Morcic figure is, this is a pretty significant departure from […]
A lesser known fact about Angular Momentum is that most of their watch creations are custom made works. They have recently upped the value proposition for their custom watch clients with an admittedly very attractive watch package. Instead of just customizing the dials and straps, not clients of Angular Momentum have a totally new case […]
These watches might have Corum skull watches beat. They at least match them! These two watches are part of Angular Momentum’s Artisan collection Eerie Timepiece line and have illustrative names such as “A Heap of Luminous Skulls” and “Juicy Skulls.” I really love these watches, and am just awestruck at the variety of wonderful watch […]
Layered Damascus Steel Makes For A Beautiful Timepiece In The Angular Momentum COLOR-TEC Collection Damascene
It should be clear that Angular Momentum is one of those luxury brands that feel comfortable with endless experimentation. I am amazed at the sheer wealth of watch designs the company has offered over the years. That combined with their one-off pieces and limited editions make for a brand that is worth watching constantly. I […]
Before fond observation of this beautiful watch line, it is a good idea to know the historical source of the art faithfully reproduced in miniature. Without knowing history behind the art, these watches are just really nice reserve glass eglomise art pieces done with incredible skill. Much deeper appreciation for this line (and a better […]
Angular Momentum is, well gaining momentum in the creation of image series watches. Meaning collections that focus on dial imagery and come in collection sets. The eglomise method they use to paint small images on the rear of sapphire crystals looks so good, and works so well that the possibilities are really limitless. The Orbis […]
