Piaget Altiplano 38mm 900P: Thinnest Mechanical Watch (Price) [SIHH]

On display at the 2014 Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) and built in celebration of the brand’s 140th birthday, the Piaget Altiplano 38mm 900P is the thinnest mechanical watch… in the world.  And, at an astonishing thickness (or should I say thin-ness) of 3.65 mm the Altiplano 900P beats out the previous champ, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Ultra-Thin Jubilee, by a nearly-infinitesimal 0.4 mm. Jenny Craig...

Christophe Claret Poker: Ante Up (Video, Price) [SIHH]

I think Christophe Claret has a gambling problem.  The Swiss watchmaker seems to be obsessed with cards.  First there were the Baccara and 21 Blackjack watches, both awesome in their own right.  But, now… Now at the 2014 Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) in Geneva, there is a new gaming automaton watch, the third (and probably final) installment.  It’s called the Christophe Claret Poker.  And, Christophe...

De Bethune Dream Watch 5: A Starfleet Watch? (Specs and Pricing) [SIHH]

Picture this… A Starfleet ship, the USS TickTickVroom, is accidentally sent back to the year 2014 through a freak tear in space-time caused by an anti-matter explosion too close to a quantum filament.  The only way to acquire the supplies needed to alter a stable Einstein Rosen Bridge to open a path back to the 27th century is to beam down to Earth and scavenge organic diodes from LG OLED TVs and cycle-olefin polymers from iPad...

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Concept GMT Tourbillon [SIHH 2014]

The first thing you might notice about the new Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Concept GMT Tourbillon is that it is stark… very, very stark.  Audemars Piguet uses bright white ceramic and titanium to create a watch that is not dissimilar in appearance to a Star Wars Storm Trooper and is actually quite cool.   The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Concept GMT Tourbillon is just the latest addition to the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Concept...

A. Lange and Söhne Grand Lange 1 Lumen: A Pre-SIHH Peak

With Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie, or SIHH, coming up in just nine days, many watch brands are keeping all of their cool new toys under wraps until the Swiss show.  Thankfully, A.

Richard Mille RM 19-02 Tourbillon Fleur My Favorite Watch of SIHH 2015

My Favorite Watch of SIHH 2015 Fresh from Switzerland and SIHH 2015, one might be tempted to compare the Richard Mille RM 19-02 Tourbillon Fleur to last year’s Christophe Claret Margot. Both are rather florally inclined. Both contain elaborate automaton mechanisms. Both are limited pieces from brands know for pushing the limits of traditional watchmaking, Richard Mille and Christophe Claret.   But, while the $315,000...

Christophe Claret Margot: She Loves It? She Loves It Not?

She loves it.  Yep.  She does, despite the even number of petals.  The Christophe Claret Margot is the first women’s watch from the incredibly innovative Christophe Claret.  Similar in layout to the TTV Watch of the Year award-winning Christophe Claret Poker, the Margot takes the old flower-torturing “He loves me, he loves me not” game to a new mechanical and horological level.   The Christophe Claret Margot...

MB&F Starfleet Machine: A Star Trek Deep Space 9 Clock

The MB&F Starfleet Machine (YES, STARFLEET!!!) is by far the coolest, geekiest, most awesome clock I have ever seen.  I am a huge Trekie.  I love Star Trek, as is evidenced by my review of the De Bethune Dream Watch 5.  But, this clock… this masterful piece of nerdy goodness from MB&F and L’Epée 1839 takes Star Trek-inspired art to a whole new level.   It combines science fiction awesomeness with the...

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Diver White Ceramic

Audemars Piguet is huge into developing and using new materials in their watchmaking.  Tantalum, forged carbon, ceramic… AP has used some fascinating metals and composites.  But, if the 42 mm Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Diver White Ceramic (reference number 15707CB.OO.A010CA.01) is any indication, it seems like 2014 is Audemars Piguet’s year of white ceramic, or as should I say Super Ceramic (it’s a real...
