In a sense, it speaks to the maturity of the Greubel Forsey collector. Few of the brand’s timepieces are suitable for daily wear, but the watches are difficult to top in terms of an impressive feeling on the wrist. I believe that the Greubel Forsey Tourbillon 24 Seconds Vision is the answer to the question of “what can I wear if I want my Greubel Forsey experience, but also something simpler?” That is also to say that few people who buy a Vision are first time Greubel Forsey customers.
The result ends up being minimal, yet utterly formal; masculine, yes, but in a way that doesn't scream "Dude!"in any way, shape, or form; glam, yet dead serious as a serious timepiece. It also manages to be a bit avant-garde, but classy (admittedly one of the worst adjectives in the English language, save coming out of the gape of Ron Burgundy). Most compelling is the bold contrast between the white gold case, jet-black dial, and absolutely spectacular, luxurious crocodile strap. That essential graphic quality vividly evokes - and certainly would wonderfully complement - a tux's traditional black/white combo. Gazing at it longingly, one wonders whose wrist at this year's Academy Awards is going to be rocking this. And that's a nice chunky buckle pictured below, too, huh? Definitely not too dainty.
None of this is terribly surprising, as Mr. Mayweather is a known lover of luxury watches - especially those of the blingy persuasion. Like some other celebrities who have made it big after coming from humble beginnings, Mayweather enjoys showing off his collection of luxuries and speaking about his timepieces that together form a massive assortment of watches worth well into the many millions of dollars. Articles on the Dupont Registry and the sports website SB Nation each detail some of Floyd Mayweather's typically richly diamond-studded watches.
Compare that with high-end watches and other luxury items which by nature are niche in their appeal or affordability. It's a brave new world for watches - which the Apple Watch certainly is. My continuing hope is that watches - as an item people wear on a daily basis - make a come back, and that useful, connected electronic watches are the dominant player (which I think implies that the basic quartz watch might not have the brightest of futures) leaving room for enthusiasts and collectors to enjoy traditional mechanical watches in a new way, with a new scope of appreciation from their peers.
The crown is engraved with Ball’s double-R logo and is rendered in stainless steel. It offers contrast to the DLC case, but it looks a little out of place to me, and should have had a matching DLC finish. The crown action is good and solid. Winding is really smooth, and the crown clicks into its positions solidly.
As different as the design language of Greubel Forsey and Philippe Dufour are, just as mixed is the Le Garde Temps Naissance d’Une Montre piece: the highly asymmetric dial reminds us of the former, while the clean, round case takes after the beautifully proportioned cases we have been seeing from the latter.
Hublot can be a tough brand to figure out. The watches are styled to grab your attention, with a great emphasis on presence and color. But every so often they bring out a timepiece that has a subtler tone and it really works. If you're a classic dress watch fan and extol the virtues of a Jaeger LeCoultre or a Vacheron Constantin above all others, you might find even the most discreetly designed Hublot a mechanical monstrosity. But if you're a fan of modern, edgy sports watches that respectfully nod to the past, the Hublot Classic Fusion Chronograph Aerofusion might whet your appetite.
This same vintage look extends to the dial which offers remarkable composure and design abstinence compared to some modern Breitling watches, which, according to some people, go a bit far in terms of textures, fonts, and colors. The only real color breaking up the mostly monochromatic dial of the Breitling Chronoliner is the red-tipped GMT hand. The slightly recessed contrast-colored subdials are slick-looking as well. Also note that in addition to the 24-hour scale on the rotating bezel, there is a fixed 24-hour scale on the dial - allowing skilled users to track three separate time zones with the Breitling Chronoliner.
Welcome to the light-powered T-Touch, with the newer Tissot T-Touch Expert Solar. I've had a love affair with the Tissot T-Touch for well over a decade now (it originally came out back in 1999). Very few modern watches have remained as cool for as long. The T-Touch is easily the most popular type of Tissot you'll see on people's wrists, and many watch lovers have or have had at least one. When the Tissot T-Touch originally came out, it was difficult not to be mesmerized by its sapphire crystal touch screen. Offering similar functionality as Casio's popular Pathfinder (now Pro Trek) collection of outdoors/hiking watches with their "ABC" functionality (altimeter, barometer, compass), the Tissot T-Touch offered the same, with a slick analog/digital dial, with hands that repositioned themselves in order to show the various functions along with the digital screen.
Among the more utilitarian new super luxury watches from Hublot debuting for 2015 is the Hublot Big Bang Tourbillon 5-Day Power Reserve Indicator that comes in either titanium or 18k King Gold. Why utilitarian, you ask? Well, in the most strict of senses, this ain't no tool watch, and at around 0,000, I wouldn't dare refer to it as practical. But with that said, it is straight-forward with a more-or-less clear definition of what it is supposed to be and a clear purpose in mind. What you have is a large-diameter tourbillon on the dial, a useful power reserve indicator - rendered in a new way for the brand - which makes sense with a manually-wound movement, and an impressive skeletonized movement designed for your viewing pleasure. You don't have to love the watch, but you have to admit this is an Hublot tourbillon that is very comfortable in its own skin.
In person, the Jacob & Co. Billionaire watch is surprisingly approachable. While you may have a different opinion on its design, this is not an ugly item. In fact, in its own particular way, I find the Jacob & Co. Billionaire watch to be rather beautiful. The quality is excellent, and the stones are all impossibly clear and of a good color. Baguette-cut diamonds don't refract light like brilliant-cut ones, so looking at the Billionaire watch isn't a blinding ordeal of sparkles. Instead, the size and shape of the diamonds really allows you to appreciate the beauty of each. Its like wearing dozens of engagement ring stones for the world's most beautiful women all at the same time on your wrist. Part of the appeal of a timepiece like this is the accumulated meaning people ascertain from what it all means, and what else you could do with the sum of its parts.

At the end of the day, crowd-funding is an exciting and low-risk means for a lot of people to see how viable their watch product ideas are. It also appears that the major crowd-funding websites often get enough eyes to successfully fund many projects, which further incentivizes people to start their own projects.
The Piaget Black Tie houses Piaget's cal. 534P - one of the manufacture's wonderful automatic movements that shows up in its Emperador and Polo collections, with a vph of 21,600 and a (pretty basic at this point) 42-hour power reserve. While it has a bit of Geneva striping, some beveling and graining, and a few blued jewels here and there, among the Piaget engine options, the 534P is a more robust than visually seductive movement.
There have been many "ana-digi" dialed watches over the years, and many agree that Tissot's T-Touch collection is perhaps the king. That is even the case after all these years. Of course, Tissot hasn't sat on its laurels with the T-Touch. We've seen an amazing variety of T-Touch models over the years, and along the way, Tissot has remedied some of the technical issues early T-Touch models had (such as water resistance issues). The ultimate water resistant T-Touch came with the Tissot Sea-Touch (reviewed here).
Underneath the dial beats Jaeger-LeCoultre’s caliber 942, which is assembled and decorated entirely by hand. The movement is made up of 437 parts, including 58 jewels, and a new 22k gold rotor bearing the logo of Jaeger-LeCoultre with polished and grain finishes. Caliber 942 also beats at 28,800 vph and has a power reserve of a very decent 40 hours. The caliber 942 also features Jaeger-LeCoultre’s special crystal gong, which is machined to from a single piece from a top secret alloy. The gongs are then welded directly to the sapphire crystal, so that when the hammers strike, it creates a loudspeaker effect, allowing the minute repeater mechanism to be easily heard.
