Haute Timepieces: Franc Vila FV Evos 8 Cobra Blue Bandido Watch

Watch collectors either love or hate designs from Franc Vila. No other watch has a face that loosely resembles a cobra head—set into a case that looks like an egg sitting on its side. The reptilian look is furthered by the segmented scale style of the rubber strap (a separate crocodile strap is also included). With an almost ominous look, the famed FV Evos 8 Cobra watch is in all black and blue here; a special limited edition set reserved for the U.S. only. Eighty-eight people will be able to enjoy the look of this timepiece. While technologically speaking there READ MORE

Haute Timepieces: Rebellion T-1000 Watch

There is no doubt that the name of Rebellion’s newest flagship “T-1000” model holds a double meaning. While “T-1000” clearly refers to the watch’s intense volume of power reserve for the mechanical movement, it is also the name given to the villainous liquid metal android from the future in the 1991 movie Terminator 2.  And while almost 20 years has passed since the iconic film left theaters, many fans recall the delight of the movie’s ability to render the transformative robot from the apocalyptic future. Rebellion hopes that watch lovers of all types will have a similar impressive and lasting READ MORE

Haute Timepieces: Perrelet Diamond Flower Prestige Limited Edition Watch

Perrelet, the inventor of the automatic movement (yes, a long time ago) recently developed the concept of a double rotor—where the automatic movement rotor on the rear of the watch is connected to a second rotor on the dial of the watch. The result is an instant sense of wearer-controlled movement in the timepiece, where the rotor visible on the dial spins with the movement on your wrist. Technical benefits aside, this system begs to be used for fun. Perrelet recently crafted the Turbine watch for men, along with its lovely cousin, the Diamond Flower collection for ladies. Near the READ MORE

Haute Timepieces: A. Lange & Sohne Grande Lange 1 Luminous Watch

Many watch owners take for granted their luminant watch dial; though this component is typically a standard feature on timepieces, many classic luxury timepieces do not possess this luminescent ingredient. So, no, your typical high-end watch will not glow in the dark. Not, that is, until the debut of the Grande Lange 1 Luminous watch. In the ‘tradition inspired’ world of the German watchmaker, contemporary conveniences like the luminant feature is a rare find on their beautiful watch dials. In fact, only a handful of their watches have ever offered glow in the dark hands, and the Grande Lange 1 READ MORE

Haute Timepieces: Blancpain Carrousel Répétition Minutes Le Brassus Watch

Haute Timepieces: Blancpain Carrousel Répétition Minutes Le Brassus Watch

For serious watch enthusiasts the most interesting fact about the new Carrousel Repetition Minutes Le Brassus watch from Blancpain is a relatively obscure technical feature. If you are familiar with the high-end movement complication known as the tourbillion, you may have heard of its cousin, the carrousel (aka “karrusel”)? Both of these complications bear names referring to items that revolve in circles. “Tourbillon” is a French word for whirlwind, while “carrousel” is an object that spins on its axis—similar to the carnival favorite. Each is an analogical name for the complex balance wheel and escapement assembly made to delight the READ MORE
