Watches like the Citizen Proximity Bluetooth and the Casio G-Shock notify you of an incoming call, SMS, or email, but they don’t tell you any more information about it - who was calling? What were they emailing about? You still end up reaching for your phone to find out.

I don't get to drive the Huracan unfortunately, but better yet, I get some time behind the wheel of an Aventador LP 700-4. This is Lamborghini's flagship car and contains a V12 engine that is naturally aspirated to make 700 horsepower. It also happens to have butterfly doors, four-wheel drive, and a driving personality that you will never come to expect.

First off, I would just like to take a moment to thank aBlogtoWatch for selecting me, the lucky winner! It certainly was an incredible surprise – during an insomnia-fueled horology binge – to see an email from Ariel to flash up on my phone, congratulating me... ME! It was quite hard to believe at first that I had actually won. The phrase ‘but I never win anything’ has escaped my mouth a fair few times since the initial email, but it just proves that these things really do happen!

Since its resurrection during the early nineties, A. Lange & Söhne has turned into one of the world's finest and most sophisticated manufactures - a position it fails to lose, no matter how economic crises or ever-changing trends affect the industry. As grandiose as that sounds, Lange has always represented the more relaxed end of the market, remaining consistently "German" with calm and collected novelties, bringing forward the brand and its most famous collections by one small step at a time. But sometimes there is more than one small step that has to be made, and the Richard Lange "Terraluna" tells us that the brand is picking up the pace.

They also wrote a standard for dive watches, called the ISO 6425 divers' watches standard. This standard covers the much more extreme depths a dive watch can be subjected to. They start at 30cm, perform temperature shock, condensation testing, and overpressure at 125% of the rated pressure.

The Master Ultra-Thin Minute Repeater Flying Tourbillon breaks a different type of record being the world's thinnest watch that combines automatic winding, a tourbillon, and a minute repeater. The case is just 7.9mm thick, and none of its main features operate in a traditional manner. That means Jaeger-LeCoultre didn't just cram existing elements into a smaller movement and case size. Rather, they re-imagined and re-engineered the elements for this particular purpose.

In 2013 Ulysse Nardin has begun producing their own in-house made chronograph movements with the caliber UN-150, adding to their roster of in-house movements and serving as a base for the Marine Chronograph Manufacture watch collection. With a limited edition model featuring an in-house made enamel, as well as a broad range of standard models, the caliber UN-150 sees a full deployment in the Marine watch collection for this year.

One name is arguably at the front of ultra high-end independent watchmaking, and that name is Greubel Forsey. Famed for its watches with multiple tourbillons, their GMT watch takes things one step further with a rotating globe that acts as both a 24-hour timezone and day-night indicator. The asymmetric case and dial layout may not be everyone's liking, but one cannot deny the theatrical quality of that globe indicator and the high-level of finishing that is evident in every Greubel Forsey watch.

From a traditional (ahem… "traditionnelle") standpoint, the non-skeletonized Vacheron Constantin Patrimony Traditionnelle 14 Day Tourbillon is more legible and comfortable in its design. This is Vacheron Constantin at their best and most at ease, with a dial that combines simple features and an opening to a complex mechanism. All the hands and markers are well-proportioned, and the indicators such as the power reserve scale are easy to read. You, of course, have to love the dauphine hands that are easy to spot. Emphasis on the Openworked version of the dial is a bit different.

First, a quick history lesson for those not all that familiar with Nomos' watches. Nomos is based in Dresden in the Glashutte area of Germany and has been designing and manufacturing watches since 1990, when three employees and a single phone line (shared with a local restaurant) came together shortly after the fall of the Berlin Wall.

The first step was ensuring the newly designed system has a mechanism to prevent the detent from "turning over." The in-house made Caliber DTC07 has an anti-pivot cam that puts the escapement between two sapphire crystal bridges which allows for shock absorption. There is also a "flexible thrust bearing" that is fitted on the wheel and connected to the balance to absorb shock. Further, the watch also has a constant force escapement.

Swiss Cubli Takes The Balance Wheel To A New Level Luxury Items

Cartier has made it pretty clear that the Calibre case is going to enjoy a lot of life. It has served as the base for everything from mainstream luxury to ultra-high-end Cartier models, and continues to have a promising future as Cartier currently prefers the Calibre as their premier men's model. One of my personal favorite aspects of the Calibre is that no one has ever referred to it as "unisex." Many Cartier timepieces have that fluid sense of French polish that makes them good enough for a man, but appropriate for a woman. The Calibre is "all dude." Earlier in 2013 the collection was extended with the Calibre Chronograph model (debuted here).
