Advertising Message


If you have spent any amount of time trawling watch forums or blogs, there is a good chance you would have come across the brand SevenFriday. Personally, I’m pretty impressed by their designs and what they have achieved with a simple run-of-the-mill Miyota movement, but I find their prices a bit on the high side. Nevertheless, this is an interesting post that charts the rise of the brand.

Harry Winston Ocean Tourbillon

One of Harry Winston’s more interesting pieces from this year is the Ocean Tourbillon Jumping Hour, which as the name itself suggests, combines a tourbillon with a jumping hours complication. Personally, what I think is the most remarkable thing about this piece is the way the tourbillon seems to be suspended within the watch.

5. Nomos Zürich Weltzeit – Review

Nomos Zurich

At a recent event, Philippe Dufour was asked what watch would he buy if he had up to US$15,000 to spend. His answer was Nomos. I’m a big fan of the brand, especially their Zürich Weitzeit watch, which is an unconventional worldtimer, which, unlike most worldtimers, is truly simple to use and read.
