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...

NASA Countdown Clock Nears Retirement After 47 Years, the Iconic Clock Counts Down Its Last Seconds
