Bell & Ross AeroGT For the First Time, a Watchmaker Makes a Car... and It's a Legit Concept Car. Meet the AeroGT.

For the First Time, a Watchmaker Makes a Car… and It’s a Legit Concept Car. Meet the AeroGT and BR 03-92 and BR 03-94 Watches that Go with It. AeroGT. Good name for a concept car but not a name you’d expect from a watchmaker. Actually, there’s nothing about watchmaker Bell & Ross’ AeroGT concept car that’s expected. Just let that sink in for a second… the concept car was created by Bell...

Moto Koure MK I: Modern Watchmaking Meets Classic Racing Autstralian Micro-Brand Moto Koure Shows What Car-Inspired Watches Should Look Like.

Autstralian Micro-Brand Moto Koure Shows What Car-Inspired Watches Should Look Like with Their MK I. You don’t often think of Australia as a fertile ground for new watch brands, or for watches in general, come to think of it. Cars, yes. Watches, no. But, shiny new watchmaker, Moto Koure, is looking to change that. Oh, and did I mention their watches are inspired by 1960s and 1970s cars? Swoon. When I say that Justin Khoury founded...

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...

Patek Philippe Grandmaster Chime Celebrates their 175th Anniversary Patek Philippe Grandmaster Chime Ref. 5175 Is Possibly the Greatest Watch in a Generation...

Patek Philippe Grandmaster Chime Ref. 5175 Is Possibly the Greatest Watch in a Generation… And, it should be. The Patek Philippe Grandmaster Chime is 175 years in the making. What makes it so special, apart from the fact that Patek Philippe is only making 7 (6 for sale and 1 for the Patek Philippe museum) and that it costs $2.5 million, that is? How about 20 complications, a stunning rose gold case and six patents. This...

Bremont Jaguar Watch for Lightweight E-Type to Debut at Pebble

A few months ago, we told you about the plans Jaguar has to finish the eighteen car run of Lightweight Aluminum E-Types begun in 1963 by building the final six that didn’t make it into production the first time around. Those cars (video and photo gallery below) are going to debut on Thursday in Pebble Beach at the Concours D’Elegance.  However, what we didn’t know last May was that joining the mega-rare Jaguar XKE in its...

Cesium 133 by Bathys: First Real Atomic Watch (Video)

Some watches are innovative due to their mechanical complexities.  Others to their unique and original designs.  But, the Bathys Hawaii Cesium 133 changes the way time is kept by bringing the accuracy of atomic clocks to your wrist.   Traditionally, “atomic watches” are basically quartz watches that set themselves based upon radio signals received from larger atomic clocks, like the ones at the National Institute of...

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...
