Contemporary Tyson Mai’s Casio Smart Watch

Originating from Japan as an electronics company, Casio took the title of “smart watch” in the late 1950’s. Casio smart watches were performed as products for better living. Casio released lines with calculators, heat sensors, cameras, mp3 players, and even remotes to control your TV or VHS. Till this day Casio and G-Shock hold the longest lasting and most durable watches in their target market. Paying tribute to this legacy, Tyson Mai‘s Casio concept combines familiar elements from over the years. It doesn’t appear to have any of the smart features mentioned, rather, it’s a fashion throwback that’s purely aesthetic in purpose. While it looks quite cousinly, one new feature is a removable face dial that doubles as a Philips screwdriver for removing the back plate when it’s time to switch out the battery.

One-of-a-kind Urwerk UR-210 Dubai

The UR-210 Dubai is a unique watch engraved by the expert hands of Florian Güllert. The artwork will be unveiled at the now established Dubai Watch Week hosted by Ahmed Seddiqi & sons, retailers. This one-of-a-kind UR-210 is themed on the spellbinding superlatives of Dubai, the maddening, yet tantalising megacity. For all its wealth and display, Dubai is also rich in sophisticated traditions. The cocktail of emotions stirred by the first experience of this breath-taking city is engraved forever in the metal of this timepiece. In the press release announcing the watch, co-founder of Urwerk, Felix Baumgartner shares about the first time he visited Dubai in 2007 and how fascinated he was by the paradox the city encapsulates. A city of extreme lavishness set with extreme aridity to its east and the Persian Gulf to its west. He describes the city as, “strong and often contradictory,” and it is this very characteristic that he wanted to imbue into the UR-210 he dedicated to the city. Which is why the intricate patterns and mosaic chosen to adorn the watch are those that are found on ancient middle-eastern places of worship and royal palaces. And the watch – UR-210 – is anything but ancient. And this watch can easily get into our list of the world’s most expensive watches.

Sleek Wristwatch Arpal One Inspired By 1930s Automobiles

Laurent Ferrier and Urwerk joined forces to create the Arpal One, a piece-unique (one-of-a-kind) watch that will be on sale at the Only Watch 2017 charity auction in order to help finance research on Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. The Arpal One is essentially an Urwerk designed by Laurent Ferrier, so it has rotating satellite wandering hours display that’s an Urwerk signature, but the case is a sleek construction reminiscent sof classic cars; Ferrier himself was once a racing driver who took part in the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1979. The case was shaped from an exclusive alloy called ARPAL+, specifically developed for this unique watch. ARPAL+ consists of 75% precious metals and resists wear and scratches better than white gold or steel. Its colour never fades, nor does it oxidise. While the case is perfectly polished, the Urwerk’s movement is almost colourless. The four hours satellites are in a matt pearly grey with diamond-polished outlines while the hours and minutes markers are painted in white Super-LumiNova. The time is shown by four satellites, each bearing three hours numerals, which successively sweep past the track of minutes. This original and intuitive way of telling the time is aided by a cover in polyetheretherketone, a thermoplastic known as PEEK, which hides the satellites that are not engaged in indicating the time. The satellites turn on a hidden carousel, at the heart of the successive passage of the hours. Engineering the smooth and silent revolutions of a module that weighs 500 times as much as a conventional set of hands is one of the many challenges involved in the manufacturing of this movement. Beating at a frequency of 4 Hz (28,800 vph), the self winding UR5.03 is governed by a double turbine and offers a power reserve of 48 hours. The cabochon winding crown recalls the stripes of the satellite hours. The Arpal one is completed by a nice sand-coloured leather strap. The Arpal One will be sold at auction on November 11, 2017 at Christie’s in Geneva, alongside the four dozen other unique watches created for Only Watch 2017.

Breathtaking Anura Rafael Write Time Luxury Watches

Combining calligraphy with the art of high-end watchmaking, Anura Rafael Write Time is one of the most incredible watches, because it’s both a tourbillon timepiece and a fountain pen, mixed into one breathtaking package. This is Anura Rafael’s first wristwatch, that’s why it probably had to stand out of a crowd, combining a linear movement with a tourbillon in a removable module in the most beautiful way possible. The name of this watch, Write Time, seems appropriate as well, with a cylindrical module made out of sapphire crystal, pink gold, and partially wrapped in alligator leather blending the best of two worlds. The case measures 42 mm, while the capsule is locked in place in the receptacle by means of a rotating ring. Time can be told thanks to three discs that are housed under the large sapphire crystal, with all the numerals on the discs being hand-engraved and painted. On a technical level, a hand-wound movement called Calibre ARS001/T keeps everything ticking thanks to exactly 472 parts, an impressive mechanism which took Rafael two years to develop and comes with a 48-hour power reserve. As you can see from these photos, the wonderful tourbillon is visible at one end of the case, under the large sapphire crystal, but you’re probably more captivated by the incredible transformation from a watch into a fountain pen. The pen itself is also made out of pink gold and presents itself in the same alligator leather used to make the strap of the watch. Available with either a piston filler or cartridge, the pen may also display the nib in different sizes. This innovative timepiece is entirely Swiss-made by artisans in the Jura mountain region, and if you totally like what you see right now, you should know the Anura Rafael Write Time will be made to order and starts off at 245,000 CHF.

Ressence Type 1H Limited Edition For HODINKEE Watch

If you’re familiar with Ressence, certain aspects of the Type 1H may look familiar to you. For anyone new to the brand, instead of displaying time using static scales (like most wristwatches you see), Ressence watches use a unique orbital display that utilizes a planetary gear train called the ROCS (Ressence Orbital Convex System). Designed and developed in-house, the system is composed of nested discs and rings that move in concert, creating a different dial with every passing moment. We decided to take the innovative Ressence display a step further, sandblasting and skeletonizing the convex German silver dial discs to reveal the mechanics within the watch. The edges of the discs have been sharply beveled, adding a touch of shine to outline the openings. The markings and “hands” are milled and filled with a dark grey SuperLuminova that glows bright green in the dark. The stunning effect of watching the mechanics manipulate the display isn’t the only special aspect of this timepiece. This is the first time that the Type 1 has been offered in stainless steel, and the case shape itself has been rethought too. It is now 41.5mm in diameter and 12mm thick, so it balances nicely on the wrist while still having great presence. The wire lugs of the Type 1 have been replaced with arched lugs that have the tiniest bevel at the edge, adding some additional dynamism to the case. You’ll notice there is no crown at all on the Type 1H, but you simply turn the caseback to set and wind the watch (though it is self-winding). You’ll be surprised at how quickly you become used to reading the unusual display too – it’s much more intuitive than you might expect. The Type 1H combines a futuristic display with classic old-school finishing and attention to detail, making this watch incredibly wearable.

Anicorn’s TTT – The Hidden Time Watch

It’s always fascinating to see how different designers create wildly different products using the same concept as a starting point. It’s even more interesting when that concept is as captivating as the passage of time. Anicorn aims to illustrate the beauty of design and time by launching the “The Trio of Time” international artist collaboration project. The company’s founders, Joe Kwan and Chris Chan, will travel the world to work with prominent designers who will then transpose their view of time into distinctive timepieces that display different cultural perspectives and design methods. Just like the “Series 000” and the “Series K452”, which launched on Kickstarter with resounding success, the first chapter of the TTT saga begins on the crowdfunding site. “We will collaborate with a local designer in three different cities around the world to create a timepiece together, which will be released here on Kickstarter. Each watch will feature a unique design that represents the designer’s view on passing time.” And Hidden Time is the fisrt watch from this series. Hidden Time’s watch face features a beautiful gradient display under a crystal covering where numbers are firmly printed. As hours pass, the hour gradient disc rotates and “hidden time” is revealed. The watch helps you focus on time in the moment, using a modern interpretation of the camouflage effect to hide the passing hours.

Limited Edition Jaeger-LeCoultre Hybris Artistica Mystérieuse

Take a look at the Jaeger-LeCoultre’s newest creation, a ravishing timepiece called Hybris Artistica Mystérieuse. Set to adorn only 5 lucky wrists, this eye catching watch is just another example that the virtuosity and artistry of Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Rare Handcrafts (Métiers Rares) knows no boundaries, as you can easily see. The watchmaker’s incredible Hybris Artistica collection seeks to combine mechanical excellence with artistic inventiveness, with this watch boasting an orbital flying tourbillon, that’s considered one of the most prestigious complications. Of course, you can’t ignore the original design and the exceptional decorations either, and please note that the mother-of-pearl applied on the dial is not the only skeletonised element at this watch, the rotor also benefiting from the same treatment. Showing off an amazing 18kt rose gold 42 mm case, that’s also skeletonised and features Aventurine on its lugs, this watch comes with double sapphire crystals and it’s apparently able to handle 50-meter deep waters. Movement is provided by the Swiss automatic Jaeger-LeCoultre caliber 941, meaning 49 jewels, 28,800 vph and a power reserve worth about 50 hours. Finishing everything off is a black leather strap, with an 18kt rose gold skeletonised folding clasp. Price tag is unknown at the moment.

Retro Styled Nixie Tube Round Watch NIWA

NIWA’s nixie tube timepiece merges past and present with retro technology enclosed in a sleek aluminum case. Already renown for their Nixie Tube clocks and iPhone docking stations, NIWA have downsized their delicate components into an eye-catching watch that measure just 55mm in diameter. Nixie Tubes, which NIWA employ to form the face of the watch, are an old electronic device used to show digits. The tubes work in a similar way to the neon signs that they closely resemble. Each tube contains ten decimal digits made out of negatively charged wire. These are arranged in a stack, one in front of the other, and enclosed inside a sealed glass bulb filled with neon gas. Each tube also contains a positively charged wire mesh. When electricity is applied to each number, the wire lights up, producing a soft orange glow reminiscent of a neon sign you might find outside an 80’s diner. Unlike most digital displays, the wire numbers are typographically designed and shaped for perfect legibility. The delicate tubes are enclosed within solid, andonized cases made from aircraft aluminum. The watch has two reed buttons, and comes with a magnet which must be used to set the time. It’s not all old-school mechanics however, since NIWA use a gyro sensor to save power. This means that the watch lights up only when you move your arm to check the time. The tubes produce no noise or heat, and use very little energy. Should the battery run down, the timepiece comes with its own USB-powered docking station for charging. Given its delicate chemical components, NIWA has granted a lifetime warranty for the watch and all its pieces. The watch is available in grey and black colors with anodized aluminium cases.

Impressive Cool Diving Watch From MB&F

The renowned Swiss watchmaker MB&F has planned to impress everyone at SIHH 2017 with the new Horological Machine No. 7 Aquapod , a cool diving watch that can handle 50-meter deep waters, but it’s absolutely incredible from any angle you look at it. This exquisite timepiece is actually the first round-cased Horological Machine designed by the Swiss brand, with the odd fact being that the MB&F HM7 Aquapod has been released after the introduction of the HM8. Showing off a 53.8 mm case consisting 95 parts, this precious watch also benefits from a sapphire sandwich inner case where a spherical mechanical automatic movement makes everything come to life. One crown on the MB&F HM7 Aquapod is for winding the movement, and the other one is for setting the time, a perfect balance and a visual effect that will surely charm everyone. The MB&F HM7 Aquapod also benefits from a lot of luminant, making this watch a very noticeable piece in the dark. The movement inside of the MB&F HM7 Aquapod comprises 303 parts, operating at 2.5Hz (18,000bph) and bragging about a 72-hour power reserve. Inspired by jellyfish tentacles, the automatic rotor was produced from titanium, with the weight having been constructed out of platinum. A black rubber-style strap, that’s actually an aircraft-grade Fluorocarbon FKM 70 Shore A elastomer, finishes everything off and keeps this watch attached to your wrist. The HM7 Aquapod will be available either in titanium or 18k rose gold, with 33 pieces in titanium priced at 98,000 Swiss francs, and 66 pieces in gold costing you exactly 118,000 Swiss francs.
