At first we just knew the name of the watch as the 4000m Diver, until the Oceanographic part of the name was designated later on. It comes from an aquarium in Monaco (do they have one of everything in Monaco?) called the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco - and Hublot partnered with them for the watch. Was the partnership necessary? Not really, but Mr. Biver does like a nice party and partnership to go with almost each new watch the brand releases. It is fun enough. I wonder if they sell the watch in the gift shop next to the stuffed seals and plush crustaceans.

Jaeger-LeCoultre also of course makes their own movements – that is sort of the point of the place when it comes down to it. But the larger point is that they not only make their own movements, but they really make most all of the even tiniest parts, cases, and many of their hands and dials. Having everything under one (well several) roof really gives Jaeger-LeCoultre some special strengths as a brand. Strengths that you can probably see in their products.

As a tourbillon there are two main differences here that make the Spherotourbillon unique. It was hard to name this watch because there isn't anything really spherical about the tourbillon. What you have is a tourbillon that moves around in a special motion similar to that of those spotlight clubs rent to point into the night sky so that people flock there. It is a cool motion to watch in its gentle gyration. The tourbillon itself has a balance spring that isn't flat, but rather cylinder shaped. It looks very cool in operation and is similar to conical balance wheels that I have seen before. I got to check out the piece operating under a microscope and was pleasantly delighted.
