Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Concept GMT Tourbillon Review Since its inception, Urwerk has always been about pushing the boundaries of what a mechanical watch can be. Founders Martin Frei and Felix Baumgartner continue to innovate in terms of both design and mechanics, while always using their solid watchmaking foundation to ground their work in the history of horology. Their latest creation, the UR-111C uses a totally new kind of time display that’s a bit of a departure from the orbital satellite system that the brand is best known for. And it’s a doozy. On the “front” there are two conical displays – jumping hours on the left and running minutes on the right – and a unique helix-shaped minutes indicator in the center that also has a retrograde function. As if that wasn’t enough, there’s also a jumping digital seconds display on the top of the watch that uses an array of optical fibers to project the numbers up toward the sapphire crystal window. Like I said, it’s a doozy.

Urwerk’s watches are tough to appreciate without seeing them in the metal, but even from the images here and the brief descriptions Urwerk sent over, I’m really impressed here. This watch is completely excessive in its pursuit of doing things in different, surprising ways, and the various indicators are constructed to an extremely high level, in terms of both precision and craftsmanship.

In addition to the new ways of showing the time, Urwerk wanted to give wearers a new way to interface with the watch. You’ll notice that there’s no traditional crown to speak of. Instead, there are a pair of mechanisms for winding the setting the watch. For the former, you use the cylindrical roller that’s set into the top of the case, just below that jumping seconds display. Now, to set the watch, there’s a lever that pops out of the right side of the case that can then be used to turn things forward or backward. This is definitely a watch that’s all about doing things differently and if you’re looking for something genuinely unique, the UR-111C looks like a heck of an interesting option. replica Hublot Big Bang Meca-10 Nicky Jam price

Richard Mille Replica RM 07-03 Automatic Litchi Review Since the beginning of time, since the dawn of Homo erectus, and seen in evidence from the Serengeti plains reaching back 500,000 years, mankind and his forebears have left their decorative mark on the talismans, armor, weapon and tools that populated their personal universes. And it is perhaps in the regressive purity of marking a surface using a sharp tool known as a burin as a way to express the inchoate, to unearth the expressive vision buried beneath the subconscious, to honor one’s gods and express one’s Freudian Id that engraving resonates most powerfully.Intended to function as an avant-garde “drivers” watch, the hour and pair of minute indicators are located on the front side. Hours are displayed digitally on a truncated cone on the left side; a skeletonized helix/cylinder displays the minutes linearly and stretches diagonally across the face of the watch; the second minute display is located to the right on its own truncated crown and shows the time digitally for enhanced precision; and the seconds are told in five-second intervals via two rotating plates set deep within the movement ( a Zenith Elite base caliber with an in-house module) and brought to the face of the watch via an image conduit constructed of optical fibers.

Since the onset of the Swiss watch industry, engraving has been inextricably linked with the craft of watchmaking. Engraving techniques can be as simple as personalization with initials, or as elaborate as chased and filigree techniques on cases. The art of guilloché is the hand-engraving of massive gold dials with mimetic patterns used in both Anglo-Saxon art and neo-classical architecture. Engraving is also celebrated in conjunction with enameling in the art forms of flinqué, which involves painting in translucent enamel over an engraved surface, or in champlevé, where parts of a dial or case are excavated and enamel is used to fill the remaining voids to create ethereal artistic microcosms. wholesale Greubel Forsey Art Piece Edition Historique watch

While I have nothing but the greatest respect for the high art forms of traditional engraving, the fact is that many of these métiers belong to a world that is classist and backward-looking. Conversely, I’ve always wanted to create a powerful new relevance for this art form by connecting it with the visual identity and iconography of today. I’ve always wanted to change the perception of engraving from something ornate, decorative and (let’s face it) feminine to something bombastic, visceral, even aggressively masculine. Through a chance encounter on Instagram, I discovered the work of Johnny Dowell aka King Nerd, a former master engraver at revered British gunmaker Purdey, and my entire perception of engraving and its expressive potential experienced a seismic shift.

For 2018, URWERK, Revolution and Johnny “King Nerd” Dowell will create a series of pièce unique engraved watches in motifs depicting symbols of power and ancient warriors of the Far East. Our ambition is to create watches that will explode into your cerebral cortex, shatter your impulse-control matrix and enflame you with desire.Revolution’s master engraver Johnny embodies two colliding worlds: That of the iconoclast and rebel, and that of the devoted artisan. There is a powerful primacy to his work that perfectly complements the spirits of URWERK and Revolution. Zenith Defy Classic Replica watches for sale

The first brand I knew we had to collaborate with was URWERK because of the intellectual and philosophical alignment between the brand and Dowell’s work. Felix Baumgartner and Martin Frei created their brand with the exact same desire as Dowell, which was to simultaneously respect their craft and advance its story and contribute to its evolution by creating the watches of today for the contemporary audience. Says Baumgartner, “My father was a watchmaker. His father was a watchmaker. I respect them but I did not want to repeat what they did. I saw that the vast majority of brands were content with repeating the past. Ninety-nine percent of watches today are miniaturizations of complications dating back 200 years. We wanted to create an all-new complication. We wanted to advance horology. We wanted to redefine the language of time.” When I met Felix Baumgartner for the first time and peered into the seductive engine of fire that was his sapphire-canopied UR-103.03, I recognized that I was witnessing the creation of a new chapter in horology. URWERK watches unveil the passing of time using a system of orbital hour satellites that traverse a fixed minute track on the bottom edge of the case. This system in fact has its roots in antiquity. But the end result is something totally modern.
