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...

HYT H1 Watch

Ok, now this is new.  So new, HYT has filed seven patents for this watch alone.  The HYT H1 is a revolutionary new watch from the Hydro Mechanical Horologist at HYT led by former Concord CEO Vincent Perriard.  The H1 uses a “fluorescein” liquid-filled tube to indicate the hours.  It reminds me a bit of an old bubble level filled with neon green goop.  Two bellows, controlled and regulated by the mechanical movement, push and pull the...
