This statement is true, and shows that Ballouard isn't in the game to create a wall of smoke and mirror around what he does. Many watch makers (metaphorically) provide an illusion that they enter a cave of watch making with nothing but tools and lubrication grease to sustain themselves for a month, only to come out with a perfectly formed new timepiece formed with help from grace.

There is something comical about just how busy Fortis made this B-47 Calculator watch. Even the name is silly. When you hear the term "calculator watch" you immediately think of something digital quartz, and Japanese. I've had calculator watches when I was a kid. I loved those. I wouldn't wear them today as I am a grown up, and I don't know if I would wear this comically designed watch either. With enough stuff going on to make a weak-minded person tremble. "I just wanted to know what time it was.

While thermometers in mechanical watches aren't at all common, they aren't new either. Back in the days of Breguet you saw some pocket watches with thermometers in them. Today the mechanical thermometer is very rare in timepieces. Customers who wants this feature tend to opt for "ABC" (altimeter, barometer, compass) digital watches such as the Protrek from Casio. These and similar watches usually have thermometers built in to them. As is the case with wrist mounted thermometers, you really need to take your watch off for about 10 minutes to get an accurate reading of the ambient temperature as the watch will be highly effected by your body temperature.

According to Konstantin Chaykin, the manually wound mechanical movement is entirely in-house made and designed. There is more Wootz metal on the movement. For fun, the back of the half-moon or says "The dark side of the moon." I do like that the watch isn't too thick, and the protruding moon phase bulges out on the top, but not the bottom. Overall the Konstantin Chaykin Lunokhod is a very interesting watch from an equally interesting independent Russian watch maker and brand.

Measuring a bit larger than last year's model, the Zenith El Primero Stratos Flyback Striking 10th watch sites in a polished steel Stratos case that is 45.5mm wide. There is also an Alchron black limited edition piece. Just like the standard Stratos is looks great, and offers the same durable sporty looks for those who want the Striking 10th complication versus a standard El Primero chronograph. For more information on the Stratos case you can read about it here.

Quite fun to wear. Visibility day or night is excellent, with plongeur-style hands that are nice and large. Lots of SuperLuminova makes the dial and bezel visible for many hours:

Citizen is the top selling watch in the US from a volume perspective. A lot of that is thanks to their Eco-Drive Japanese quartz movements that are light powered. In fact, all three of the major Japanese watch brands (Citizen, Seiko, and Casio) feature light/solar powered quartz movements. The benefit here to those not familiar with them is convenience. A little light goes a long way for watches that need little to no maintenance when light keeps your watch battery charged. In my experience most women aren't particularly interested in winding and setting watches all the time.

Fine finishing. The fine finishing and decoration throughout the case, dials and components of the Zeit Device are a harmonious blend of the contemporary and the traditional, echoing URWERK’s ethos of 21st century watchmaking based on a solid foundation of the very best in traditional horology. Circular lines engraved into the top of the case give hint to the fact that the form of the Zeit Device’s case is actually a circle with cut sides. Clous de Paris guilloche on the dial provides both a rich texture and a pleasing contrast with the flat surfaces on the indications. The satellites and their hands feature diamond-cut bevels that reflect light during the day, while flush embedded white Super-LumiNova ensures legible reading of the time at night. Clous de Paris guilloche surfaces continue on the back of the timepiece and in a tip of the hat to URWERK’s home,   Geneva waves (Côtes de Genève) are engraved on sections of the bridge supporting the base of the Hour Satellite Complication.

The dial is all 1930s and the case is much more 1970s. According to Tag Heuer the design of the watch draws from both eras. In steel, the case is 38mm wide and cushion shaped. I like the brushed bezel and polished outer side of the case. The dial is exceptionally easy to read with its high contrast hands and numerals. Tag Heuer uses their "heritage" logo that is just "Heuer, " with "Monza" right above. The numerals are very retro looking and they used a cream colored lume outlined in blue (to match the hands).

It kind of reminds me a of a poor-man's “Henry Graves" Patek. The estimate for this watch is Sfr 200'000- 300'000, roughly USD 8,000 - 3,000. My guess is that it will fall neatly in the middle of that range.

The only drawback is that the watch cannot receive a signal indoors. Think of it like a GPS unit. To receive a signal from the satellite it needs a clear line of site. The watch can receive information from one of 24 navigational satellites the are going around the earth. These satellites bounce the atomic clock information to each other so that are each all accurate. In addition to the time, the signal also has the calendar information. What amazes me the most is that the watch has enough power to do all this.

The case is large and done in 18k white gold and 18k rose gold. It is 48mm wide and 67mm tall. I suppose you could refer to it as a square, or maybe rectangle. I don't think the study of geometry has a name for this/these shapes. There is something very "deconstructionist" about the design. It is  almost abstract, but still functional, and has a lot of design elements that are purely artistic. Note that the piece I checked out was a prototype - so the final version will be much better finished and polished.

Since the Hublot F1 King Power as a watch is not new I will not going into detail about the technicalities. This is a new limited edition of 250 pieces (like all of them) for Japan's Suzuka race track released recently at 2011 Formula 1 Japanese Grand Prix. It has a cool skeletonized dial and ceramic disc brake-style bezel. The case is 48mm wide in zirconium (a lot like titanium). The neatest part are the predominantly white and red colors meant as an homage to the Japanese rising sun flag.

New from Hamilton is this Khaki Flight Timer. Done in collaboration with the Air Zermatt helicopter rescue team in Switzerland, this is their new high-function pilot watch with a Swiss ETA quartz movement. You can see the Air Zermatt logo engraved on the caseback. Functionally this watch should do a lot even though I don't have a full spec sheet. The dial is broken up into a few negative LCD screen sections and the case has a crown along with three pushers. You can still read the time easily enough, and I like the large applied metal minute/hour markers. You'll of course see that the dial is a available in a silver or anthracite tone. Skeletonized hands make it possible to see the screens below them without too much interference.
