The dial of the Genie 01 offers a range of information, all part of the complex manually wound mechanical movement developed by Breva in collaboration with Jean-Francois Mojon's company Chronode. The 405 part movement operates at 4Hz and has a power reserve of 65 hours. There is also a handy power reserve indicator on the dial near 4 o'clock.

With a list price of ,825 USD on a strap and ,950 on the bracelet, the Tudor Heritage Ranger offers a serious value to the buyer who wants an excellent casual and masculine watch that doesn't cost a fortune. Compare the Ranger, or any other Tudor sport watch, against the competition in terms of fit, finish and case quality and you'll quickly see why people are going nuts for their current line up. Between the new blue bezel Heritage Black Bay and the Heritage Ranger, Tudor's using Baselworld to find a new place in your collection.

On top of that, although not a pilot, my father is an Air Force veteran and instilled a love of all things aircraft in my brother and I from a young age. We'd attend countless air shows, visit air museums on vacations and would be quizzed on aircraft flying overhead, challenged to identify them by profile alone. So, how cool was it to win this watch? The next question you're asking is why did this aircraft inspire a timepiece from a Georgian watchmaker? Zviad Tsikolia is the heart and soul behind UNIQ Watches, and is establishing himself primarily by designing a number of extremely limited run "vehicular" themed watches for lack of a better term. UNIQ is also the maker of a watch model supplied to the Georgian Armed Forces. Quite cool.

Earlier in 2013, MB&F announced its first non-watch item, the MusicMachine produced in collaboration with the last remaining music box maker in Switzerland, Reuge. Anyone who has been around the watch circuit knows about Reuge because their products often appear at watch trade shows and in some high-end watch stores. Together with Reuge, MB&F released a space-themed music box (without the actual box) that played such classic romantic songs such as the theme from Star Wars (by John Williams) and Smoke on the Water (by Deep Purple). I know I get teary-eyed with nostalgia when I hear those.

Rau-Tech separates these "procedures" into two distinct services. The first service is Rau-Tech Duramantan, which is when you want entire surfaces coated, and Rau-Tech Colormantan is where they coat only parts of surfaces while leaving some of the base metal exposed. Duramantan allows for different colors to be used, but only one color per each entire surface. Colormantan is for the more creative customization and allows for much more unique creations. While the example images of Rolex watches with the Colormantan treatment tends to show squared areas of color, in reality, there is no particular geometric or shape restrictions, and the client can opt for more or less what they want, if we understand Rau-Tech correctly.

As the official timekeepers of the FIFA World Cup 2014, Hublot has just unveiled its new Big Bang Unico Bi-Retrograde Chrono. Based on its UNICO movement, the new Big Bang Unico Bi-Retrograde Chrono is also the official watch of the FIFA World Cup 2014. Collectors are also nicknaming it the "Soccer Bang."

The efforts of MCT were nonetheless worth it, as throughout the 40 hours of power reserve, the clever louver-system, coupled with the large minute hand, ultimately create a dial that is extremely legible even after a quick glance at the dial. With that said, however, it is difficult to understand why they chose to not have any indexes at the four positions where the screws are set to hold the plate. It makes telling the exact time at those four "corners" rather difficult while carrying little to no aesthetic advantages.

While the original RM 036 was dedicated to Jean Todt and his initiative for road safety – as the sensor was supposed to warn the driver upon reaching “unsafe” amounts of G’s –, this time around the brand went for a collaboration that is more dynamic in its nature and perhaps more exciting for fans of motor racing. They teamed up with French rally driver Sebastien Loeb. Loeb is the most successful driver in the history of World Rally Championship (or WRC for short), having won the championship nine times in a row. In fact, he is one of the fastest and most consistent drivers ever. Just search for his name and Pikes Peak on YouTube and you will see what I mean. Despite the negligible chances of anyone using this freak-ish instrument under racing conditions, Loeb is one of the few out there who can really put it to the test.

Without argument, I proceeded to listen to where he might go with this. He knew little of a watch snob's disdain for "fashion watches," and that, for better or worse, the term is often used in a rather derogatory nature to describe timepieces that the masses consume to the chagrin of all that know about "real watches." Perhaps I was defining the fashion watch wrong.

Acrylic has some pluses and minuses. Sapphire crystal is much more scratch resistant, and tends to be a bit clearer, though high-quality acrylic is pretty clear. Acrylic is hard, but it does scratch. The good news is that acrylic crystals can be cheaply and easily buffed out, and replaced very cheaply. Sapphire crystals must be replaced if there is an issue with them, and they of course cost more. The display window to the movement on the rear of the watch is however not acrylic.

So Ulysse Nardin worked on doing just that, though in-house movements aren't new to them. All of the top-end Ulysse Nardin pieces already contained in-house movements. Having said that, the industrial needs to make a select amount of very complicated movements is very different (and arguably much more doable) than producing more basic mechanisms in larger quantities. Both designing and producing movements in-house is a rather expensive and tricky feat.

Perhaps one of the best indications of how complicated it is to design, manufacture and assemble a watch from scratch, to the finished, reliable, and beautiful product, is that a manufacture as potent and well-equipped as Julien Coudray still makes time-only watches with hour, minute, and second hands, and a service indicator (which we will discuss later), with a tourbillon-version being the most complicated piece in their selection. No perpetual calendars, chronographs, or other complications – just time-only watches. The primary reason for this is what most watch enthusiasts who have studied a watch movement more closely will certainly know: a watch movement is mind-bogglingly complicated.
