UNDONE x Monopoly collection: MONEYMAN by Stephen Bliss

This limited edition collection was created in collaboration with Stephen Bliss, the artist of one of the biggest titles in videogame history. In this ground-breaking collaboration, Stephen Bliss, the artist who established the highly recognizable, illustrative style we all know and love, brings his iconic pop-culture influences and a morbid sense of humour to UNDONE’s set of two limited edition Monopoly Collector’s timepieces. Each model is limited to 500 pieces.

UNDONE x Monopoly collection-MONEYMAN by Stephen Bliss

The Benjamin

“The Benjamin” by Stephen Bliss is a United States Series 2006A, $100 banknote you can wear on your wrist! Signed off not by the US Secretary of Treasury but by Stephen himself; the dial features the authentic Monopoly board-game patent number (“No. 2,026,082” registered by the Parker Brothers back in December 31, 1935) cleverly disguised as a U.S. Mint issuance number.

The greenback themed timepiece is complimented by Genuine Brown Calf straps featuring UNDONE’s signature quick-release technology. The sub-dials featuring the Monopoly seal and Uncle Pennybags lume up under UV light, much like the anti-counterfeiting measures of modern banknotes. The ‘applied sword’ indices and the silver tachymeter reinforce the theme by adding an extra dimension of Mr Monopoly breaking out of a bank vault.

The Godfather

“The Godfather” by Stephen Bliss has all the elements and subtleties expected of a classy dress watch; applied indices, a Monopoly-red minute track along with the blend of brush and polished finishing ensures a sophisticated feel without the garishness of too-much gold. The Black Cordura quick-release strap makes this a versatile piece perfect for both tux and party occasions. But there’s more… the glint of the gold-pressed banknotes spraying out from Mr Monopoly’s twin cash cannons against the guillochéd subdials are visible only from particular angles.

Each watch caseback comes laser engraved with one of five special parodies of the classic “Chance/Community Chest”, all designed by Bliss. Both the Benjamin and the Godfather watch models come in a premium “Luxury Tax” tin case, complete with a commemorative golden 1M Monopoly bill featuring Rich Uncle Pennybags and Penny Gladrags.

UNDONE x Batman 80th Anniversary Collection: “The Caped Crusader” and “The Dark Knight”

On 5th December 2019, UNDONE announced a three-year global licensing agreement with Warner Bros.

Since his first appearance on the pages of DETECTIVE COMICS #27 on March 30, 1939, Batman’s role and look as a crime-fighting cultural icon continues to evolve in our collective consciousness. In 2019, Batman celebrated his 80th anniversary and to celebrate this milestone UNDONE designed a premium collection, which is also the first Titanium model from the Hong Kong based watch brand.

UNDONE x Batman 80th Anniversary Collection The Caped Crusader

The UNDONE x BATMAN 80th Anniversary Collection pays homage to perhaps two of the most definitive eras in Batman’s evolution: The Caped Crusader and The Dark Knight.

UNDONE x Batman 80th Anniversary Collection The Caped Crusader

The Caped Crusader model features a Grade II Titanium body. The cushion-case, crown and pushers are light weight, agile and highly corrosion resistant.

UNDONE x Batman 80th Anniversary Collection The Caped Crusader

The case has a micro-blasted finish for ultimate stealth and its aggressive shoulder lines are reminiscent of the Batmobile. The distinctive yellow can be found on the centre console, circling the tachymetre and its “80” mark, a nod to Batman’s 80th anniversary.

UNDONE x Batman 80th Anniversary Collection The Caped Crusader

Further, on the chronograph seconds, hands and subdials, the classic oval insignia (1989-1993) in the form of a Batarang (the bat-shaped throwing weapon used by Batman) can be found.

UNDONE x Batman 80th Anniversary Collection The Caped Crusader lume shot

Equally fearsome in the dark, the dial reveals a green luminous detect-a-scope and Bat-Signal minute subdial whilst the hands and applied indices are an icy blue.

The Dark Knight is a realistic interpretation on the duality of Bruce Wayne/Batman’s identities. The matted grey look of the Titanium micro-blasted cushion case along with the two-tone dial design converges to an almost “Noir”/ “B&W movie” aesthetic.

UNDONE x Batman 80th Anniversary Collection The Dark Knight

Here you will find the 2011 NEW 52 COMICS version of the Bat emblem stealthily debossed into the subdial. In the darkness, the lume on the appliques and chronograph counters come alive like the blue-nitrous boosters of the Batmobile’s powerful engine.

UNDONE x Batman 80th Anniversary Collection The Dark Knight

“The Caped Crusader” and “The Dark Knight” will come in an open glass case back, laser serialized with a special commemorative Batman 80th Anniversary badge based on the cover of DETECTIVE COMICS #27 on March 30, 1939. Both models will arrive in a tactical, yet stylish metal carrying case featuring the Bat emblem.

UNDONE x Batman 80th Anniversary Collection The Dark Knight

UNDONE has committed to donate a portion of the proceeds on this project to support the heroic work of the Hope For Henry Foundation; who help seriously ill children and their families through difficult times.

UNDONE x Batman 80th Anniversary Collection The Dark Knight

Both “The Caped Crusader” and “The Dark Knight” are housed in Grade II Titanium; a 25% weight reduction from the regular UNDONE Urban series. The case measures in at 40mm diameter (43mm including crown) and 48mm lug-to-lug length. Height has been reduced by 0.5mm to 13.3mm; making this whole new chassis lighter and thinner. The case back highlights the commemorative Batman 80th Anniversary badge.

UNDONE x Batman 80th Anniversary Collection The Dark Knight

The watches are powered by the Japanese TMI VK64 Mechanical-Quartz Hybrid Flyback Chronograph movement.

Recommended retail price of UNDONE x Batman 80th Anniversary watch is USD $359.

BOTTA TRES 24 Plus Titan

TRES is a three-hands watch from German watch brand BOTTA, who has been renowned for their classic single hand watches. This 12-hour, multi-hand watch combines apparent contrasts and builds a bridge between the classic functionalism of the BAUHAUS and timeless modern design. BOTTA also offers a 24-hour version of this three-hands watch.

Featuring a 24 hour dial, the TRES 24 represents the time analogous to the sun. The 24-hour dial mirrors exactly the day on earth: 12 hours day in the upper half and 12 hours night in the lower half. One complete rotation of the hour hand corresponds exactly to the rotation time of the earth around their own axis – that is 24 hours or one day. The date changes as soon as the hour hand crosses the date line on the lower half of the dial.

Made from stainless steel or titanium, both 12H and 24H watch models are available with automatic and quartz versions. The TRES 12H watch is available in 40 mm or 44 mm case size and the TRES 24H comes with an option of 40mm or 45mm case size.

In 2019, BOTTA introduced TRES 24 plus titan, the new 24-hour three-hand watch with a protected design, three-part titanium case and second indicator. For the second generation of the all-day watch, the dial graphics have now been made much quieter. Instead of the usual second hand, it now has the innovative second indicator.

BOTTA TRES 24 Plus Titan Automatic

The TRES 24 plus titan features a 45mm diameter case made entirely of titanium. Each TRES 24 plus titan automatic version houses a Swiss made ETA 2893-2. Its quartz counterpart is powered by the RONDA 515.24H Swiss-made calibre.

BOTTA TRES 24 plus titan quartz watch

Three different titanium alloys are used for the new three-part case to ensure the best characteristics. This special case construction is currently only available from BOTTA. Like the entire watch, the second indicator is registered for “protected design”.

BOTTA has developed the new C pointer for the new TRES 24 plus titan. It consists of a small second disc with an open circle printed on it. The opening replaces the usual second hand. In favour of a calmer display of the progressing time, the second hand is deliberately omitted. The minimal movement of the “C” only becomes visible on closer inspection – nevertheless, half or quarter minutes can be easily estimated.

BOTTA TRES 24 Plus Titan Automatic watch

Titanium is the most precious of the light metals and has numerous outstanding properties such as high strength at low weight, good dimensional stability or absolute absence of allergies. Depending on the type of titanium, one of the properties predominates. Thanks to the new three-layer structure, BOTTA has optimally combined these properties in the TRES 24 plus titanium.

For the most stressed top ring around the sapphire crystal, a particularly resistant titanium alloy is chosen, which is otherwise used in turbine and aircraft construction, for example. The central part of the housing is made of a mechanically improved version of pure titanium. The bottom itself is made of a titanium grade that is used in the medical sector.

ROUE TPS (Tachymeter Pulsometer Chronograph)

Launched at the end of 2019, TPS, which stands for Tachymeter & Pulsometer, has been dedicated to the vintage watch aficionados who look for modern interpretations. The new model is based on the early sixties refined and detailed chronographs.

ROUE TPS (Tachymeter Pulsometer Chronograph)

ROUE TPS is a tribute to the Porsche 910, winner of the Nürburgring 1000 kilometer race in 1967. This car gave Porsche the most sentimental of its victories after a decade of trying an overall win in Germany’s most prestigious sports car race.

ROUE TPS (Tachymeter Pulsometer Chronograph)

The homage is present in an elaborated embossed car front drawn on the screw case-back. This new ROUE watch houses a reliable Seiko VK63 meca-quartz movement. Manufactured by Seiko Instruments Inc. in Japan, this hybrid mechanical-quartz movement incorporates a mechanical module for chronograph function and quartz technology for other indication.

ROUE TPS (Tachymeter Pulsometer Chronograph)

The ROUE TPS watch dial features centre hour& minutes hands, small seconds at 6 o’ clock, 24 hour indicator at 3 o’ clock, 60 minute counter at 9 o’ clock and chronograph centre second hand. Featuring a triple-layer design, the dial features Swiss Super luminous hour indexes and Tachymeter & Pulsometer scales.

ROUE TPS (Tachymeter Pulsometer Chronograph)

The model has a round stainless steel case with circular brushing on top, horizontal on the sides and polished details on the sharp lug edges. With large chronograph pushers its measures are 40 mm in diameter, 13.4 mm thickness, and 48 mm lug to lug. It fits 20 mm wide straps.

ROUE TPS (Tachymeter Pulsometer Chronograph)

The crystal is a double dome K1 mineral glass with anti-reflective treatment inside and sapphire coating outside. The screw-in case-back of the watch is embossed with a 3D art-work.

ROUE TPS (Tachymeter Pulsometer Chronograph)

The ROUE TPS watch is available in three color-ways: TPS 1 (Black dial), TPS 2 (silver dial) and TPS3 (blue dial). Each timepiece is delivered with two straps: Genuine perforated Driver style leather and Sports silicone.

ROUE TPS (Tachymeter Pulsometer Chronograph)

REC Watches RJM Bluebird Limited Edition

Introduced in 2019, the RJM Bluebird by REC Watches incorporate aluminum from the wings of a 1944 Spitfire aircraft that crashed on the Russian Tundra during WW2. This timepiece is limited to 334 pieces.

REC Watches RJM Bluebird Limited Edition

The RJM collection was first introduced in December 2008 as a tribute to the mighty Spitfire aircrafts. The RJM 04 BLUEBIRD is the fourth timepiece from this family. In 1945, a Spitfire aircraft crashed on the Russian tundra during a dogfight. This incredible story is captivated in the RJM 04 BLUEBIRD, which also marks end of an era for the RJM as it completes the collection.

REC Watches RJM Bluebird Limited Edition

The RJM 04 BLUEBIRD features a blue sunburst dial and a blue woven strap, honoring the RAF pilots and their famous blue uniform. The story of how the azure color became synonymous with the uniforms of the British Royal Air Force pre-dates the RAF itself, as the blue fabric was originally manufactured for the Russian army. However due to the Russian Revolution the RAF acquired these uniforms after having been founded in 1918.

REC Watches RJM Bluebird Limited Edition

It sports a 40mm diameter stainless steel case with sapphire crystal top glass and mineral crystal case-back. The mechanical engine that powers this timepiece is a MIYOTA 9015 automatic caliber with a power reserve of more than 40 hours. Its oscillating weight takes inspiration from the spitfire metal rivet construction.

REC Watches RJM Bluebird Limited Edition

In honor of this one-of-a-kind aircraft, the brand has been donating part of the proceeds of every sold RJM timepiece towards the restoration of PT879, the donor Mark IX Spitfire aircraft.

REC Watches RJM Bluebird Limited Edition

Design highlights

  • The four “holes” on the tip marks the number of blades on the MK IX Spitfire Aircraft Rotol propeller.
  • The crown guard is heavily inspired by the Spitfire elliptical wing shape & wing structure.
  • The blue woven strap is as a tribute to the RAF pilots and their famous blue uniform.
  • The case shape is inspired by the watches worn by the British Royal Airforce and the British Army during WWII – with a modern twist and proportions.
  • The crown tip is inspired by the nose cone of the Spitfire fighter mixed with a traditional diamond shaped crown.
  • The rotor decoration is inspired by the spitfire metal rivet construction.
  • The date window is recycled from a piece of untreated aluminum cut directly from the PT879 MK IX Spitfire aircraft.

Feynman One

Feynman is a Singapore based watch brand founded by Yong Keong. In December 2018, the brand announced its first timepiece, the Feynman One. To realize their first project, the brand successfully raised an amount of S$ 58,750 from its online crowd-funding campaign hosted on Kickstarter.

The inaugural model from the brand, the Feynman One is a mechanical wristwatch created as a tribute to the Mother Nature, and mankind’s creations inspired by the Nature. It is a modern mechanical watch specially designed for urban customers.

Feynman One watch

This timepiece takes its design inspiration from the Golden Ratio. If you closely observe the watch, you will find the perfect utilization of the Golden Ratio principles at multiple locations. Interestingly, some minor deviations to the principle were also made to allow for an overall sense of balance.

Feynman One watch

The Feynman One boasts an interesting, multi-layer dial design featuring three closely blended dials: The main dial ring, the centre dial and the small seconds dial. Adhering to the principle of the Golden ratio, these three dials are all in perfect proportion and distance to each other.

The main dial’s sunburst radial-effect surface provides a picture perfect aesthetic to the largely rounded designs of the other components. The honeycomb pattern on the centre dial is a reference to one of the finest examples of nature’s application of the Golden Ratio.

Feynman One watch

The honey-comb patterned centre dial is circled by a slightly escalated ring structure with a side opening (from 6h to 8h) beneath the top hour marker ring. This opening allows uninterrupted movement of the seconds-hand of the small-seconds dial, whose utmost area is placed on the centre dial and leftover area with the main dial. At the dial centre, you can see Feuille shaped hour and minute hands as well as a pinion cap.

Feynman One watch

In the small-seconds dial, the area placed on the centre dial features honey-comb pattern where as the area on the main dial has a radial pattern. A white colored dial ring with black markers circles the small-seconds dial.

Although the rehaut (flange) as well as the dial rings of centre and small-seconds dials share a similar design, you will find some small differences when you observe the dial details closely. On the rehaut, 12 & 6 hours are Roman numerals where as on the centre dial ring Arabic numerals are used to indicate 12h and 6h. On the small seconds dial ring, 30 and 60 are represented by their corresponding Chinese numerals.

Feynman One watch

The main dial also features an offset, three-dimensional ledge to display the brand name without distracting from the overall design of the watch face. It is interesting to see that the curved seconds-hand and branding ledge impersonate the tails of lizards, while the lugs of the watch were inspired by their legs.

Feynman One watch

Each Feynman One watch features a meticulously finished stainless steel case with 39mm diameter, which is a perfect size for classic dress watches. The case thickness is 12.5mm including the front and back crystals.

Feynman One watch

Front glass is domed sapphire crystal and the rear side of the watch is secure with a sloped sapphire exhibition case-back. The additional depth of the case design ensures sufficient space for the “floating” hour track, as well as the elevated hour and minute hands.

Feynman One watch

The coin-edged case-side is inspired by the fine gears within a mechanical watch movement, along with the facets of the crown. Finishing plays a major part in the Feynman One collection. Vertical brushing and mirror polishing alternate around the case, while the coin-edge case side is polished on every facet like high-end watches.

Feynman One watch

The Feynman One watch is driven by the ETA Peseux 7001 Swiss mechanical manual wound movement. The movements used in the Feynman One collection are all certified ETA TOP-Grade, and also fully decorated. This legendary movement can be admired through the sapphire crystal caseback.

Feynman One watch

All Feynman One watches come with a pair of genuine leather straps crafted by local artisan Yi Leather in Singapore. Each strap has been crafted from lizard leather, cut to taper, stitched by hand and painted to finish by Shuyi Ng. The straps feature a proprietary signed clasp attached, designed to provide a snug fit on the strap.

Feynman One watch

The Feynman One watch is available in six variants: Classic, One-Eye Panda, Founders edition, Eclipse, Wine and Olive retail exclusive edition.

Highlighted with a monotone and harmonious palette, the Feynman One Classic model features an elegant grey main dial, black honey-comb patterned centre and small-seconds dials, silver hands and blued pinion cap. This watch is fitted with a matching grey lizard strap.

Feynman One Classic

Alchemists Cu29

The Alchemists Cu29 is the introductory piece of the trilogy of timepieces from Alchemists Mechanical Healing S.A., an haute-horlogerie company based in Saignelégier in Switzerland.

Cu29 refers to Copper, the chemical element with the atomic value of 29 and represented by the symbol Cu (from Latin: cuprum). Since ancient times, Copper has been known for its medicinal properties and its potential to relieve certain ailments. To implement these benefits of copper in high-end watchmaking, the company has developed Cuprum 479, an innovative horological alloy. The Cu29 is an extra-ordinary mechanical watch made from Cuprum 479.

Alchemists Cu29 watch

The team Alchemists consists of three creative geniuses: Hervé Schlüchter, Fabrice Thüler and Denis Vipret.

As mentioned above, the Cu29 is the first opus of the total three timepieces proposed by Alchemists. For the trilogy, Alchemists developed three different manufacture movements on a common basis, infusing harmony and a soul for their project.

The Cu29 is the most essential timepiece of the trilogy. It is a horological masterpiece from Hervé Schlüchter following traditional horological art’s methods and savoir-faire, transmitted by Philippe Dufour, the world renowned master watchmaker. It is also a showcase for an innovative horological alloy, Cuprum 479.

Alchemists Cu29 watch

The Cu29 highlights a universal heritage of traditional horological arts and crafts. The entire calibre and case are hand finished, with traditionally buffed and polished corners, drilled and hand-polished balance bridge and sweep second cock, escapement wheel on black polished end-stones, rounded and moveable Geneva hairspring stud holder, moulded, ringed and beveled wheel and intermediate wheels, and black-polished and hand-blued screws.

Amongst other techniques, the pivots are traditionally rolled on a lathe roller and the polishing of the pinion’s leaves is made with wooden wheels mounted on a specific machine.

Alchemists Cu29 watch

The hours, minutes and seconds hands are rounded by hand and then blued and lacquered. The power reserve and selector dial are made of black-polished steel adorned with a lacquered engraving. The double barrels linked in parallel are beveled and polished by hand. Each caliber leaving the Alchemists’ workshop is then individually numbered.

The Cu29 has numerous specialties, drawing inspiration from horology’s heritage and history.

The regulating organ is held by a titanium bridge on its hairspring’s stud, finished and formed by hand. Its finishing and its curve make it a spectacular piece to behold in the Cu29’s mechanical landscape. The cylindrical hairspring is a tribute to ancient Marine chronometers, which once represented the apogee of horological precision and were constructed with a tridimensional architecture.

Alchemists Cu29 watch

Finally, on a more philosophical manner, the Alchemists like to consider the assembly of the regulating organ and the cylindrical hairspring as a representation of spiritual elevation. It is also worth noticing that the escapement wheel is mounted on traditional end-stones.

The energy of the movement comes from the double barrels, this assembly of energy balance is a tribute to a watchmaker who marked history and whose career and philosophy are sources of inspiration for Hervé Schlüchter since years: Sir Georges Daniels. Dividing the energy between the two barrels allows attaining a greater stability in its diffusion; the two springs deliver a stable and linear torque, being the reason why the Cu29 offers a 72 hours chronometrical power reserve.

When carefully observing the double barrels’ assembly, there is one thing that is sure to catch the Cu29 wearer’s attention: the two mustache-shaped pawls. These two pawls are black polished and angled by hand by the Alchemists’ watchmakers. Their design and their location right above the barrels are uncommon and bring an additional charm to the timepiece.

The indirect second is suspended above the barrels and completes the assembly, the elevation of the small second derogates to horological tradition and represented a technical challenge in the conception of the movement, the gears had to be conceived in such manner as to remove potential play between them.

Alchemists Cu29 watch

Among the last two displays of the Cu29’s dial are the peripheral rack and the functions selector. The peripheral rack is a rare display in watchmaking. By definition, the display is made along a curve, and the display arm is suspended in a vacuum, reinforcing the lightness and the aerial side of the timepiece’s architecture.

The functions selector is a visual indicator that allows the wearer to permanently know the position of the crown and easily wind or set the timepiece, removing the risks of wrong manipulation.

Finally, the global architecture of the timepiece, composed of a blend of different levels, was inspired by the suspended gardens of Babylon.

The Cu29’s fabrication also calls for particular techniques belonging to arts crafts’ heritage. “Shields”-shaped bridges, visible from the timepiece’s dials are hand decorated and allows for several types of finishing, among which hand-hammering or hand engraving. Both are techniques requiring years of expertise to achieve their perfect realization. The hand engraving of the “shields” also brings forth numerous personalization possibilities in which customers can let their imagination run freely.

The same holds true for the dial’s gemstones which are cut and formed by hand. Extraordinary craftsmanship skills are required and it demands an immense precision when cutting these pure gemstones, which do not require any surface treatment, before being pad printed and installed on a Cuprum 479 base. The dial assembly naturally preserves the beauty and purity of the stone.

The dials made from Grand Feu enamel are true works of art. The process to create enamel not only requires a highly specialized savoir-faire, but also a material base allowing its formation. Indeed, enamel dials can usually only be created on gold or copper bases, but after several months of development, the Alchemists were able to create Grand Feu enamel on a Cuprum 479 base, attesting once more of the purity and quality of this horological alloy.

All the Cu29’s parts thus obtain genuine added value from the watchmaker’s hand. The
Alchemists have no finishing workshop: the watchmaker receives the kit for each watch as a “blank”, meaning non-finished, and must do the hand-finishing him- or herself, as done back in the glory days of fine watchmaking and which very few traditional Maisons still know how to do today.

The skill level and passion required from each watchmaker of the Alchemists are particularly high. Only a small few of craftsmen in Switzerland are still able to hand finish and assemble each of his creations by him- or herself. Each creation of the Alchemists will be the child of a single individual watchmaker, from its assembly and adjusting to its most detailed hand finishing.

The production of Alchemists timepieces is consequently very limited, traditional methods on which their fabrication is based are not compatible with an industrial process. Each timepiece coming from the Alchemists’ workshop will therefore be an exclusive piece, carrying a will to perpetuate ancestral savoir-faire.

The hybrid case of the Cu29, the Alchemists’ signature, is composed of a Cuprum 479 base but most importantly, of a unique “atmospherical” glass.

Alchemists Cu29 watch

The glass’ conception has no common measure with the glass-box from yesteryear, for three reasons:

  • Shape: It is atmospherical. The base of this atmosphere glass has a smaller diameter than that of its outside edge, meaning that the glass’ diameter gradually expands from the base until it takes on an atmospherical curve at its apex—exactly like the earth’s atmosphere, from whence it gets its name.
  • Construction: The Cu29’s atmosphere crystal is pierced by the crown tube, which is usually found in the case middle. Here, it is integrated directly into the atmosphere crystal.
  • Casing: This atmosphere glass has forced the Alchemists to perform the casing from above. The movement is thus screwed to the case middle, which is then covered by the atmosphere glass.

Finally, the Cu29 has no bezel or flange, thus enabling the movement to occupy the entire case. By this unique conception, the atmospherical sapphire glass of the Cu29 represents around 65% of the case’s volume, offering his or her wearer an emotional spectacle. It also highlights the 3D architecture of the manufacture movement.

Similar to traditional horology pieces, the Cu29 is constructed towards the notions of volume and symmetry; however the atypical arrangement of the Cu29’s case has led to the total transposition of the movement’s architecture.

Created in-house, the manufacture calibre composed of 362 parts and 56 jewels, is completely inverted compared to the traditional design. This conception allows the display of the hours, minutes and seconds but also the visual spectacle orchestrated by some of the movement’s parts, such as the double barrels linked in parallel extend directly from the winding stem.

In the Cu29, the symmetry of the double barrel at 6 o’clock offers a totally unique visual spectacle during the winding process, which allows to see each spring of the suspended moustache-shaped pawls wind with each click of the ratchet until the timepiece is fully wound.

The Cu29 is a timepiece equipped with a variable inertia balance and a cylindrical hairspring, located at 8 o’clock. Just above, between 10 and 11 o’clock, the power reserve is indicated by a cursor moving along a peripheral gear bar indexed from 0 to 72 hours. On the opposite side, between 2 and 3 o’clock, the selected function is indicated: W (Wind) or S (Set).

The hour dial, made from Grand Feu enamel or gemstone, is placed at 12 o’clock, and displays the hours and minutes. The small second is displayed off-center at 6 o’clock. The ring, calibrated into 60 trailing seconds, covers the two barrels of the Cu29.

Alchemists Cu29 watch

The Cu29 can be highly personalized by the integration of dials, offered in different stones, up to the customers’ preferences. The selection of gemstones was guided by their elegance and their purity. In harmony with the spirit of their work, the Alchemists searched for pure gemstones which can be sublimed by hand and without treatment in order to preserve their quality and shine. As of now, Alchemists is offering two versions of the Cu29 timepiece with Lapis Lazuli or Black Jade dial.

Copper has been known across cultures for millennia for its benefits to the body and its potential to soothe certain ailments. Inspired by these beliefs, the Alchemists imagined how a timepiece could capture their essence, which led them to develop the Cuprum 479, a new innovative horological alloy, but also to reflect on its field of expression in their works. In this case, by placing it in contact with the skin thanks to the bottom of the case, made entirely with the alloy, delivering their interpretation of this historical lore.

The case of the Cu29 is crafted exclusively in Cuprum 479. The crown is also made of Cuprum, as well as the pin buckle, bottom plate, dial’s base, hours, minutes and seconds hands as well as the majority of the bridges.

Louis Erard Limited Edition Regulator Watch Designed by Alain Silberstein (The First Collaboration between Louis Erard and Alain Silberstein)

In October 2019, Swiss watch maker Louis Erard announced the launch of a reinterpretation of the brand’s regulator watch in collaboration with the architect and watchmaker Alain Silberstein, available in two limited editions of 178 watches. This is a double first: in its 90 years of existence, Louis Erard has never given carte blanche to a designer, while Alain Silberstein had never before designed a regulator watch.

Louis Erard Limited Edition Regulator Watch Designed by Alain Silberstein (The First Collaboration between Louis Erard and Alain Silberstein)

The regulator complication goes back through the history of watchmaking. Traditionally, the principle of the regulator is to separate the indications of the hours, minutes and seconds in order to improve chronometric precision.

Louis Erard Limited Edition Regulator Watch Designed by Alain Silberstein (The First Collaboration between Louis Erard and Alain Silberstein)

This is a pillar of Louis Erard’s timepieces, with the regulator at the heart of its collections since the brand’s relaunch in 2003. The regulator remains more than ever at the centre of the brand’s strategy.

Louis Erard Limited Edition Regulator Watch Designed by Alain Silberstein (The First Collaboration between Louis Erard and Alain Silberstein)

Alain Silberstein’s design starts with the central minute hand, reduced to the most basic form of an indicator: an arrow, large and yellow on the black version, and deep blue on the white version. This minute hand points to simple lines like those on the train station clocks that were his inspiration. The rest is designed in the same style of geometric simplicity: rectangle, triangle, and circle.

Louis Erard Limited Edition Regulator Watch Designed by Alain Silberstein (The First Collaboration between Louis Erard and Alain Silberstein)

Reflecting Alain Silberstein’s signature style, the hour hand is a large red triangle, while the seconds are indicated by a serpentine hand. The colours follow a similar logic, reduced to the basic spectrum of blue, red and yellow, inspired by the Bauhaus movement.

Louis Erard Limited Edition Regulator Watch Designed by Alain Silberstein (The First Collaboration between Louis Erard and Alain Silberstein)

The watch houses a ETA Peseux 7001 movement with Louis Erard RE9 complication. Decorated with Côtes de Genève decoration, blue screws and Louis Erard engraving, this top grade movement can be admired through the sapphire crystal caseback.

Petermann Bédat 1967

Petermann Bédat is an independent luxury Swiss watch brand co-founded by Gaël Petermann and Florian Bédat. The brand’s debut watch model is 1967, a hand-wound mechanical watch equipped with the dead beat seconds function.

Petermann Bédat 1967 hand-wound watch with dead beat seconds

Graduates of the same watchmaking school in Geneva, both Gaël and Florian had been working with various haute-horlogerie manufactures before they jointly decided to establish their own venture.

They have selected the Swiss town of Renens as their operational base. The reason behind choosing this place was the proximity of the horological workshop of world renowned master watchmaker Dominique Renaud. In November 2017, the duo incorporated the company Petermann Bédat Sàrl.

Also in 2017, with the help of Dominique Renaud, the company created a 3 hand mechanical watch movement featuring the rarely used dead beat second complication. This hand-wound movement is the engine of the Petermann Bédat 1967 watch. In 2018, in collaboration with a specialized partner, they created the brand’s first timepiece.

The final design of the 1967 watch was carried out in collaboration with Barth Nussbaumer of Barth.Studio. Petermann Bédat unveiled the brand’s first in-house creation in 2019.

Petermann Bédat 1967 hand-wound watch with dead beat seconds rose gold version

The first ever timepiece from the Petermann Bédat brand reflects the most classic expression of time but with a twist, a dead beat second.

Christened 1967, this classic three-hands mechanical watch draws our attention to a radical technological shift in the field of timekeeping. It was in 1967 the first working prototype of a quartz movement was created in Switzerland.

Usually, the seconds hand in an analogue quartz watch jumps from one second to another while performing its revolution. However, in most of the mechanical watches, the second hand follows a smooth sweeping motion.

In mechanical watching, the jumping seconds motion strikingly resembling to that of a quartz watch can be orchestrated by incorporating the dead-beat seconds mechanism. Although a historical mechanism with its roots trace back to the 18th-century clock making, the dead beat seconds has been rarely used in traditional watchmaking due to its complexity.

Petermann Bédat 1967 hand-wound watch with dead beat seconds

With their in-house developed Calibre 171, Petermann Bédat revisits this iconic complication.

For their dead beat second complication, Gaël and Florian took inspiration from the Gafner system. It is an independent seconds system envisaged by Rober Gafner, an instructor of the Watchmaking School of La Chaux-de-Fonds. The Gafner system demands the most exemplary craftsmanship to adjust while offering great room for creativity.

Petermann Bédat 1967 hand-wound watch with dead beat seconds

The anchor of second is the most complex component to manufacture in the system. Carefully adjusted by experienced hands to the hundredth of a millimeter, the complex construction of such mechanisms needs the watchmaker’s exceptional skill.

Petermann Bédat 1967 hand-wound watch with dead beat seconds

This complex mechanical movement features a large balance wheel with a diameter of 11.5 millimeters. It beats at 18’000 vibrations per hour and regulated by a swan-neck regulator.

Petermann Bédat 1967 hand-wound watch with dead beat seconds

The Gafner system also allowed the watchmakers to use and revive traditional techniques such as the deep matte finish of the dead beat second bridge. Achieved with “poudre du levant” mixed with olive oil, this historical technique was traditionally used on grande sonnerie pocket watches but has since then nearly been forgotten.

Petermann Bédat 1967 hand-wound watch with dead beat seconds

Every detail of the movement is made with the same desire for perfection. Breguet’s spiral spring, black polished, polished bevels, everything is finished by hand with the same care.

The watch boasts a balanced design by blending 19th century technical and aesthetic influences, some mid-20th century design codes for the body and a contemporary passion. Made from 18 carat rose gold or white gold, the 39mm diameter case of the watch judiciously follows the classic watch designs of the 1960s.

Petermann Bédat 1967 hand-wound watch with dead beat seconds white gold edition

The eye-catching dial of this fine horology creation was made by Comblémine SA, the dial making company owned by master watchmaker Kari Voutilainen. The semi-open dial highlights the outstanding craftsmanship and also represents the new design language of the brand.

The central plate cut-outs are designed to frame the nicely sized rubies, as they are one of the vital elements of the movement. A significant attraction of the dial design, its seconds track graphic plays with the same ideas of cut lines. These breaks visually emphasize and enhance the idea of jumping from one second to another.

All the hands of the 1967 watch are hand-made. The white gold model features blued hands whereas the rose gold version has rose gold colored hands. The hands are highlighted with ancestral techniques, such as bevelling, black polish and ‘berçage’. The hour and minute hands boast a unique form that seamlessly combines the shapes of the dauphine hand and a 19th-century hand.

Ollech & Wajs OW P-101

Introduced in 2019, the Ollech & Wajs OW P-101 watch pays homage to the MC Donnell F-101, the very first fighter jet in service capable of exceeding 1,000 mph, setting a world-record in 1956.

Inspired by military style watches, its design is both uncluttered and perfectly functional, paying tribute to the thousands of soldiers and officers who favoured an OW as a reliable tool for survival during their time in Vietnam. Resolutely faithful to the classical principles of the early OW models, it is crafted with well-balanced proportions, pronounced lugs, an extra size crown and semi-domed glass.

Ollech & Wajs OW P-101 watch

The watch houses a robust mechanical self-winding movement, the ETA 2824-2 OW3, carefully regulated by hand and designed to withstand the test of time and passing fads.

Ollech & Wajs OW P-101 watch

Handcrafted and assembled in the Swiss Jura, like all OW watches, the OW P-101 lives up to a tradition of authenticity. Water-resistant to a depth of 300M, it is equipped with a sapphire crystal, and SuperLumiNova® hands and indexes. Guaranteed 3 years against any manufacturing defect. Retail price is CHF 956.

Fears Redcliff _Streamline_ - Forties Silver dial on a Mink Brown Goat's Leather strap - on wrist - by Mitch Helson (@mitchellvito)

Introduced in 2019, the Redcliff “Streamline” is inspired by a popular watch from the 1946 Fears centenary range called the “Streamline”. This timepiece features a galvanised dial similar to its name sake with an antique silver colour called ‘Forties Silver’.

The surface of the German made dial is vertically grained with gilt printed numerals and black surrounds, just like the original.

Time is displayed using black ‘Fears’ shaped hands filled with Super-LumiNova for easy reading. The central seconds hand is painted in a special patina red, reminiscent of Fears watches with central seconds hands from the 1940s& 50s, which all featured red seconds hand.

Fears Redcliff _Streamline_

Each Redcliff “Streamline” watch is hand built in the UK using a slim, elegant case that’s made in Switzerland before being finished in the UK. The slim case’s sides are brushed with a polished bezel sitting on top securing a flat sapphire glass featuring anti-reflective.

On the tip of the crown is engraved the Fears “Pipette” logo, taken from the design of the hour markers on the first Redcliff Date that re-launched Fears in 2016.

The Redcliff “Streamline” is limited to 100 pieces. The retail of this Fears watch is £483, the same amount of the originals’ £11.2s.6d – simply adjusted for 73 years of inflation.

Fears Brunswick Blue

Introduced in November 2019, this new timepiece featuring a blue dial is the second Brunswick model in steel from the Fears Watch Company Limited. This new watch joins the popular white dialled Brunswick in its improved second-generation case, retaining the same elegant proportions and curves of the original.

Fears Brunswick - Fears Blue dial on a Fears Blue Bristol Leather strap - reflections

Known as the Brunswick Blue, the new watch’s dial perfectly encapsulates the Fears ethos of “Elegantly Understated”. Each dial goes through 56 different processes, resulting in a subtle yet enchanting new face to the Brunswick.

Fears Brunswick - Fears Blue dial on a Fears Blue strap - back lit

With three different layers, two colours of printing and two complementary finishes, the real beauty and detail of this dial lies in the second glance.

Fears Brunswick - Fears Blue dial on a Fears Blue strap - blue stones

The Brunswick Blue’s dial’s layout is reminiscent of a 1940s Fears model, with hand-applied alternate Arabic numerals. Each numeral and cabochon is highly polished before being rhodium plated to match the rhodium plated, hand polished skeletonised Fears hands.

Fears Brunswick - Fears Blue dial on a Fears Blue strap - dark background

A volatile galvanic process, with a high failure rate, is used to create the unique Fears Blue colour. This decadently rich shade of blue combines with the hand-grained surfaces of the dial to catch the light beautifully.

Fears Brunswick - Fears Blue dial on a Fears Blue strap - side

The outer ring and centre of the dial are lowered and have a matt finish, along with the sunken sub-seconds. The surface around the appliques is vertically grained by hand, giving the dial a two-tone effect in the right light.

Each Brunswick Blue is hand built in the UK, made in small batches of 20 watches at a time.

The watch is fitted to a Bristol Leather strap in matching Fears Blue, made from vegetable tanned leather created in Fears’ home city of Bristol by Thomas Ware & Sons.

Mouvex 1911 Art Deco collection

Mouvex 1911 is a Swiss watch brand based in Neuchatel. The Mouvex brand was originally established in La Chaux-de-Fonds in 1911 by Eugène Blum and Alice Levi-Blum, the founders of the iconic EBEL watch brand.

Mouvex 1911 Art Deco swiss made automatic watches

Mouvex was founded as a manufacture to produce mechanical watch movements and timepieces. Under the Mouvex brand, Eugène Blum and Alice Levi-Blum created timepieces inspired by the Art Deco architecture of the cities like Paris and La Chaux de-Fonds.

Mouvex 1911 Art Deco swiss watches vintage advertisement

During the second half of the 20th century, the Swiss watchmaking industry witnessed a massive shutdown of several homegrown brands due to the influx of cheap quartz watches from Asia.

After a period of inactivity, the Mouvex brand has been acquired by a family of passionate designers lead by Valentin Guidi. In 2019, this historical brand was revived with the launch of Mouvex 1911 Art Deco collection.

Mouvex 1911 Art Deco swiss made automatic watches

Offering exceptional Swiss made automatic watches, this first collection from the resurrected brand pays tribute to this Art Deco artistic period that saw the creation of Mouvex.

Mouvex 1911 Art Deco swiss made automatic watches

These contemporary timepieces combine innovations and Swiss watch making know-how with the rich heritage of the brand. Murex 1911 is the first Swiss made mechanical watch brand to introduce straps that are also compatible with the Apple smart watches.

Made from stainless steel, the squared mono-case of this watch measures 38mm diameter, 45mm length and 11.5mm thickness. Its dial features a multi-layer design featuring decorations and dial openings. Made from sapphire crystal, the pie-shaped centre dial structure allows the view of mechanical movement beating inside.

It also features all numerical hour markers except 2, 3 and 4. The hour-markers 2, 3 and 4 are applied on the metallic surface of the dial. You can also find a date aperture on the right side of the dial. The dial houses hour & minutes hands with luminescent pointers and red second hand.

MeisterSinger Neo Pointer Date

MeisterSinger watches show the time with just one single hand. The same is also true of the new model, the Neo Pointer Date. Although the watch is equipped with an additional hand, its only function is to display the date in the middle of the dial.

MeisterSinger Neo Pointer Date

This form of display was a traditional one for wristwatches, as the date used to be indicated by a hand at the center of the dial long before the first date windows appeared. Moreover, the design, which is rare today, follows the MeisterSinger principle of not showing the current moment individually but in context, providing an overview of both the weekly and the monthly course of events, just like the open date rings on the Perigraph or the Pangaea Day Date.

MeisterSinger Neo Pointer Date

The Neo Pointer Date is a variation on this idea and follows the classical rule that the hand for indicating the longer periods of time, in this case the full days, is the shortest. The date circle is somewhat recessed and located tightly around the center of the dial, clearly different from the minute scale and the hour numerals. Its typography and the small, needle-like hand are highly typical of MeisterSinger.

MeisterSinger Neo Pointer Date

With its slender bezel and domed hardened acryl glass, the Neo is one of the most elegant models in the MeisterSinger collection. It is 36 millimeters in diameter and just as popular as the Neo Plus in its 40 mm case. For that reason, the Neo Pointer Date is also available in these two sizes, each in two versions, i.e., opaline white and sunburst blue.

MeisterSinger Neo Pointer Date

The Neo Pointer Date and the Neo Plus Pointer Date are both powered by a Swiss automatic movement. The screwed back of the stainless-steel case is engraved with the fermata logo, stamped with a serial number, and water-resistant up to 3 bar.

MeisterSinger Neo Pointer Date

All models come with a finely meshed milanaise bracelet and are available from March/April 2020.

AXIOS WATCHES IRONCLAD

Introduced on Kickstarter by AXIOS WATCHES on the 20th August 2019, the Ironclad is an affordable 500m depth rated, Swiss Automatic diving watch, built with the high-end specifications of a serious dive watch.

The AXIOS IRONCLAD maintains the definitive dive watch silhouette and is infused with the brand’s design ideas, resulting in a watch that is reminiscent of the past but wears its own character.

AXIOS WATCHES IRONCLAD

The Ironclad is made of 316L surgical stainless steel, fully brushed with high polish on the case sides and exhibiting high corrosion resistance, high durability and strength. The case measures 40mm diameter, 13mm thickness (13.8mm with crystal) and 20mm lug width.

A 120-click unidirectional ceramic bezel offers higher scratch resistance, a “nearly indestructible” property, strength and superior longevity. Generous and uniform application of C3 X1 Swiss Super-Luminova and BGW9 on applied indexes, hands and engraved bezel markings allow for maximum visibility in low light conditions.

AXIOS WATCHES IRONCLAD

AXIOS IRONCLAD is available in 5 versions: First Flight (Black sunburst dial, golden hands and accents, ceramic bezel with a splash of red at the 12 o’ clock triangular marker), Ocean Gulf (Black sunburst dial and blue-black ceramic bezel) Deep Blue (Blue sunburst dial, red seconds hands and blue ceramic dial) Horizon (Blue sunburst dial, blue ceramic bezel orange and white accents, orange minute and second hands and Northern Sky (Deep green sunburst dial, green ceramic bezel red seconds hands).

AXIOS WATCHES IRONCLAD diving watch

The AXIOS IRONCLAD watch is equipped with the Sellita SW200-1, a workhorse Swiss Automatic Movement. The SW200 is self-winding with an oscillating weight providing a 38-hour power reserve. The balance runs at 28,800 vibrations per hour (VPH) and the movement hacks, comprising 26-jeweled bearings.

AXIOS WATCHES IRONCLAD

The collection is named after the ferocious iron clad battleships used in the early part of the second half of the 19th century. The caseback of each Ironclad is engraved with an image of its namesake warship.

The caseback also bears its name, “Axios Ironclad”, the movement “SW200” and the words “Now comes the reign of iron”, immortalizing the words of Rear Admiral John Dahlgren as he witnessed the first Ironclads ending the 3000-year reign of wooden man-of-war ships in naval warfare. Additionally, the batch and serial number of each Ironclad will be engraved on the caseback “A XXX/XXX”.

AXIOS WATCHES IRONCLAD

The bracelet is a fully brushed; three-link stainless steel build which tapers from 20mm to 18mm. The clasp is milled out, double locking with six micro-adjust positions.

The Ironclads come fully coated with a scratch-resistant coating increasing the hardness of the watch exterior to 900-1100 HV. A double-dome sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating on the underside ensures a high degree of scratch resistance and minimal light distortion.

Axios Watches was conceived in 2018 by Elshan Tang, Stuart Ho and Justin Chiam. Incorporated in early 2019 in Singapore, Axios Watches was founded to produce high quality watches at a great price.
