Royal Black Caviar watch by YORK

Royal Black Caviar watch by YORK

Brilliant Royal Black Caviar is more than just a timepiece

This is a serious traditional watch created by the Schaumburg Watch company, which York serves as creative director and a shareholder. The 18k, 44mm gold case is topped by a bezel set with 53 black diamonds, that form the outer ring, and five black diamonds on the crown.

The main dial is crafted of sterling silver as well, garnished with a gorgeous black enameling with white numerals for delicate contrast. The most amazing thing is actually strapping, It was made exclusively from stingray leather from the Indo-Pacific region. Thanks to that, the black strap looks like it was made from caviar eggs. The beating heart inside this black beauty is a mechanically-wound movement SW07, engraved by hand and styled with 17 jewels.

It is available in a limited edition of 99 and a price of 59,500 dollars.

MB & F MegaWind Mechnaical Watch

MB & F MegaWind Mechanical Watch

Another fantastic masterpiece launched by Maximilian Büsser & Friends, called the MegaWind Hronological Machine No.3.
„Time and Power – who says you can’t have it all“, is the slogan for this watch. The HM3 is the most successful series from MB & F and their top-selling model collection of all time.
The HM3 MegaWind is the new generation of HM3 that improves on and replaces the first generation Horological Machine No. 3 collection. The rotor, which is designed like a battle-axe, and regulator were placed on the dial side required an inverted movement, which was only possible thanks to two large high-tech ceramic bearings that efficiently transmit time up to the revolving hour and minute cones above. “Mystery rotor”, how MB&F call this rotor, was originally conceived by Stepan Sarpaneva. The reason why they call it like that is because it appears symmetrical but still spins properly like an asymmetrical rotor – this symmetry is really an optical illusion as mass has been shaved off the underside of the blade on one side of the rotor, allowing it to function properly.
The box is made with no less than 50 components made in red gold, with red gold rotor, or made in white gold, with gold rotor coated blue and the cones are made from solid blocks of aluminum.
The MB&F HM3 MegaWind is available in red gold, with matching red gold rotor, or in white gold with a sky-blue rotor.

Black Caviar Bang is a special unique luxury piece worth one million dollar, which is also produced by the Hublot. Deep and black tones of diamonds is the only visible feature on the watch. From design to final adjustment, It took over 2000 hours of meticulous work to create this watch.

rm056

Richard Mille RM 056

The Richard Mille RM 056 takes over a thousand hours each to produce. The manually wound movement has a tourbillon, 30 minute split second chronograph, a power reserve indicator, and a torque indicator. It sits in a neat crystal sapphire case, a very brittle one at that. Even though the price is somewhat aggressive, $1.65 Million, Richard Mille have sold all of the ones they have produced so far.

C3H5N309-Experiment-ZR012-“Nitro”-Black-Limited-Edition-by-Urwerk-and-MB&F

C3H5N309 Experiment ZR012 “Nitro” Black Limited Edition by Urwerk and MB&F

The C3H5N309 is very nifty and peculiar little machine. The movement features obligatory Reuleaux polygon rotors, inspired by the epitrochoid combustion chamber of a Wankel engine. It would be rude to expect anything less from a collaboration of Urwerk and MB&F. I have done an earlier post on the HM5, a watch which also testifies to the adeptness of MB&F.

This particular limited edition of the C3H5N309 is distinguished by its black case (made from zirconium) and black movement. This wristwatch retails for $182,000.

Breva Génie 01

The Breva Génie is special in many ways not limited to being the first ever mechanical wristwatch to display weather forecasting and and your altitude. Visible on the dial there is the time at 8 o’clock in a smaller dial, a 65 hour power reserve at 4 o’clock, an altimeter on the top of the dial and the most importantly barometer at 2 o’clock. A small button marked “Air” at 4 o’clock allows for the 44 mm case to “pressurize”  and for the barometer and altimeter to the measure air pressure.

405 components is required to produce a single Génie 01 which is limited to 55 pieces around the world. It comes in either yellow gold, rose gold or white gold secured  with an alligator strap. The Breva Génie will set you back approximately $150000.

Richard Mille RM059-01

Those of you with an interest for watches might recall the watch controversy that occurred in the London Olympics 2012. The tournament was fully endorsed by Omega and only their timepieces were allowed any media coverage. When sprinter Yohan Blake wore a distinct yellow and green Richard Mille during the 100 meter heats the Olympic Committee was infuriated. The timepiece which was worth $500,000 of course received loads of attention in the media and while the Committee very loudly spoke about fining Blake and Richard Mille they did not.

On the 23rd of January 2013 it was time to release the 2.0 version, the RM059-01 Yohan Blake. The design is sure to divide opinions and it is everything but subtle. The timepiece is designed for sprinting be it both aerodynamically and movement-wise. Brilliant if you run a 100 meters for a living. This is one of our fabourite sport watches.

Royal Oak Concept GMT Tourbillon

The “Royal Oak Concepts” holds a very special place in the delicate world of horology, symbolizing cutting edge technology, without the spare of any expenses. The first RO Concept was released back in 2002 as a 30th-anniversary tribute to Audemars Piguet’s legendary octagonal Royal Oak.
The third and latest Royal Oak Concept features a titanium case with a white ceramic bezel, crown and push pieces instead of black, all heightening the contrast with the titanium case middle. However, Audemars Piguet has now gone one step further and incorporated ceramic into the movement itself, replacing the blackened upper bridge of Calibre 2913 with white ceramic. White ceramic is apparently nine times stronger than steel!
The Royal Oak Concept GMT Tourbillon to be presented for the first time at the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie 2014 (SIHH) in Geneva.
