It’s been finally released. I originally saw a 3D rendering of the watch a few months back while on the factory tour and didn’t think much of it but now that it’s out I think it looks pretty cool. [Link]
Looks good and uses an in-house movement but sadly at 47mm it’s too big for my taste. [Link]
Today the latest Batman film The Dark Knight Rises hit theaters. In the movie Bruce Wayne (played by Christian Bale) wears a Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Grande Date. As an homage to this detail, Jaeger-LeCoultre has released a limited edition version of the Reverso Ultra Thin Tribute to 1931 watch.
The rear of the flippable steel case features an engraved and lacquered The Dark Knight Rises logo, while the front is an art-deco looking black dial. They should be available at Jaeger-LeCoultre stores in Los Angeles, London, Geneva, and Hong Kong.
The Limited Edition Audemars Piguet Royal Oak just got released today but I heard they’re practically all reserved already by fans (of both AP and Leo). [Link]
Now tell me that’s not a ridiculously cool watch. Cost = $220,000 [Vimeo]
If you thought the Rolex Deepsea was bulky wait till you get a load of the Deepsea Challenge. Because the watch is rated for depths of up to 12,000 meters, the watch case is super thick as you can see in the picture below. [Link]
The HYT H1 is a watch that tells time using liquids. Watch the video above first to get a general idea of how it’s supposed to work and then watch the video below where the CEO explains the challenges they faced when creating the watch as well as a complete and detailed explanation to how it works.
So how much work goes into the dial of a Royal Oak? A lot. [YouTube]
God damn that’s fast, and it’s all mechanical! It’s so fast you can’t even see the chronograph hand when it’s activated. How fast? It does a full rotation of the dial in 10,000th of a second!! [Link]
