Black Caviar Bang X3bBo 48
What better way is there to tell time than having this stunning $1 million Caviar Bang on your wrist? Every glance down brings that feeling of sophistication and that feeling of absolute class! It comes decorated with an 18k white gold case and clasp with hundreds of precisely cut black diamonds, totalizing 34.5 carats. There are 322 diamonds on the case, 179 on the bezel, and 30 on the clasp. The one million dollar watch has only one visible feature, which forms the black and deep tones of the diamonds. The harmonious combination of the watch features a special Hub Solo T tourbillon movement that symbolizes the fusion between the essence of watchmaking and jewelry.
Day & Night watch
Snapped up within 48 hours of its launch by watch fanatics, this day and night watch uses the complex tourbillon movement, that was invented for the purpose of overcoming earth’s gravity that used to affect the accuracy of watches. Thank goodness technology has evolved!
Maîtres du Temps’ Chapter One
Christophe Claret, Peter Speake-Marin and Roger Dubuis, masters of timeless pieces, known as Chapter One is a world first combination of complications comprising a tourbillion, mono-pusher chronograph, retrograde date, retrograde GMT and two idiosyncratic rolling bars, indicating the day of the week and the phase of the moon. The laser-pierced moon and stars on the outer roller of the moon phase indication add to this watches elegance and beauty.
MB&F’s Horological Machines
Strange in design but intricate in elements the two Horological Machines No3 (HM3) watch designs named Sidewinder and Starcruiser have an amazing visual distinctiveness whereby each presents its own angle whilst telling the time. The hour and day/night indicator is on one sapphire cone and the minute’s indicator is on the second cone. I have heard that the most striking feature of these two MB&F models is the fact that it has an upside down automatic rotor, which allows for easy time telling where you don’t have to turn your wristwatch over to show off its most appealing element.
Moon Dust-DNA collection
Quite vintage in its look, well so I think…The “Moon Dust-DNA” collection includes watches that have been fashioned out of moon dust, parts of the Apollo 11 rocket and bits of spacesuits. Dials of the new upcoming collection will feature craters with dust in them from moon rock. Steel from the Apollo space shuttle will be used for the case while the strap will use fibres from a spacesuit that was worn during the ISS mission. Quite space age I must admit!
Hublot’s Big Bang
The Big Bang theory of time claims a fully visible setting which allows for disappearance of the material, and the only thing that is revealed are the diamonds. The tourbillon movement of the watch is veiled under 493 Top Wesselton baguette diamonds of dissimilar sizes. Even though it is a stunning timeless piece I do feel that it is quite Kitch, but credit at the end of the day goes to the craftsmen who overcame the tedious task of making this watch which was not feasible a few years ago.
Now were talking sophistication! The Titanic-DNA watches have been made from the hull of the Titanic ship itself. The metal on the watch has been mixed with contemporary ship-building steel to make the casing of the timepieces. The black artistic and elegant dials have been made by mixing the recovered coal burned in the Titanic’s furnaces with ceramic.
Vacheron Constantin’s Quai de I’lle
Quai de I’lle is its name and class is its game! This watch features invisible UV marking, laser perforations, high-security inks and other detailed techniques employed to secure passports and currencies. Some of the models in this phenomenal collection include tiny tout text on the dials which can only be read with help of a magnifying glass.
Ulysse Nardin Tellurium J. Kepler
This worldly way of thinking, allows one (depending on which part of the globe you live), the ability to order a Ulysse Nardin Tellurium J. Kepler that shows Earth as it can be viewed from the North or South Pole. Being in any part of the world, the watch tells you which part of the Earth has daylight and which does not. The watch is divided in to two parts: one part rotates once a year and the other shows you when there will be a solar or a lunar eclipse. But personally, id rather watch the news.
DeWitt Concept No. 1
Gothic in look and spaceship in size, this watch sets new standards for steampunk artefacts with its expanding riveted case, flying tourbillon which has been added in order to counteract the force of gravity and to keep the watch accurate, five barrels and a 21 day power reserve.
Cabestan Winch Tourbillion Vertical Watch
Another version of steampunk is this Cabestan Winch Tourbillion watch which in my books does really have a unique and stunning feel. With 1,352 components that all work together, this masterpiece is driven by a 450 link chain and 2 main nickel silver drums which indicate the time, while a few other drums show power reserves. A bit too technical for me.
When you want to watch the world spin on your wrist, the only choice would to go for this Hysek Colosso watch. Featuring a 12mm three dimensional globe that sits at 12o’clock, the movement is executed by a cathedral timbre and 62 jewels with a 48 hour power reserve. It also indicates the cities of the 24 different time zones that are linked to the GMT.
