Roshan Martin Légende Tourbillon Watch

Roshan-Martin-Legende-Tourbillon-4

Watch prices go up and watch prices sometimes go down (well, in a way) in response to the market. While I can’t say for sure, I wound venture to guess that the last 15 years have seen more activity and disparity in watch prices than any other time in history. When else in history could you get a watch for a $1 or over $1 million? While the market seems to be cooling to massively priced mega watches, you simply cant stop ambition. Watch designer Roshan Martin debuts his collection, the highly limited edition Roshan Martin Légende Tourbillon with prices from over 500,000 Swiss Francs to over 1,000,000 Swiss Francs.

Greubel Forsey Art Piece 1 Watch Hands-On

Greubel-Forsey-Art-Piece-1-watch-6

To be honest, I am not sure if this is the Greubel Forsey Art Piece 1 or perhaps the Art Piece 1.2, etc… There have few more mysterious ultra luxury watches released from legitimate brands than the Art Piece collection from everyone’s favorite metal finishing fanatics over in Switzerland. I am told that the first Art Piece watch was finally delivered this summer in 2014. This is after the watch’s “debut” in 2012. What you see here hands-on isn’t even a finished model, but rather a prototype.

Omega watch lovers are given an almost tedious amount of good options when it comes to what watch to want next. The “Omega love” is high here but let’s be honest, when it comes to wanting a new Speedmaster or Seamaster choosing the right model for you is just under being as complicated as determining a new neighborhood to move to.

Introducing The MeisterSinger Paleograph Chrongraph

MeisterSinger-Paleograph-Chronograph-3

Quick! How many hands normally appear on a MeisterSinger watch? One, right? Well, up until recently, that would certainly be the case. With the introduction of the MeisterSinger Paleograph, however, that answer is no longer entirely accurate. Sure, you’ve still got the singular hour hand (no minutes hand needed), but then there is a whole new compliment of hands showing up on the dial.
