Inside the watch is an in-house made Lange calibre L043.2 movement. It is manually wound with 36 hours of power reserve and a constant force escapement system for the jumping digits. The case is 44.2mm wide (maybe a bit larger than the standard Zeitwerk) and will come in 18k white gold with a silver and black dial, or as a limited edition (seen here and of 100 pieces) in platinum with a silver dial.
Priced at $90,800 in white gold and $111,400 in platinum. WOW!

Only a fool would buy this. And there are a lot of fools.
This year Hublot makes another big bang with this baguette diamond covered 18k white gold Big Bang tourbillon watch. This follows up the Million Dollar Bing Bang from a few years ago that used black diamonds. The $3 Million Big Bang has something like 142 carats of diamonds all over the case, dial, and bracelet.

Talk about a fly ass pocket watch! All I need now is a monocle and top hat. OK, that’s overboard but it is very dope.
The Arceau wristwatch imagined in 1978 by Henri d’Origny lends itself ideally to a pocket-watch version.
Its asymmetrical attachment and its lugs naturally invite a cord-strap fixed to the arch like a stirrup leather to a stirrup, thus evoking the saddle- and harness-making origins of Hermès.
Whether in a trouser or jacket pocket, the manner of wearing the Arceau Pocket further accentuates the innate classic chic of the original watch design.
The Arceau Pocket Promenade de Longchamp introduces a new dial that is a true work of art sculpted from a block of natural mother-of-pearl.

Nothing like a simple and clean watch.
Mr. Williams on ACL discusses some Chinese heritage in the form of this chronograph from Seagull. “While out in Vegas I was chatting with a designer friend and his watch happened to catch my eye. It was pretty classic looking, and upon further inspection, I noticed a red star and a few Chinese characters on its face. Intrigued, I needed to know more and inquired as to it. “It’s a reproduction Chinese pilot’s watch from the ’60s.” my friend said. I took a few photos and when I got home did a little investigating on the internets. Sure enough the watch is called the Seagull 1963 and it has been recently reissued.”

Jeremy Scott is making moves. Could it be the year of the wings?
The animated life and mind of fashion designer Jeremy Scott just gotten a little closer to reality as his exclusive Swatch timepiece begin to drop today. Be a bit bold, a little wild, or just plain fun with the 3 models available – a flash of yellow lightening bolt, the winded flight of fancy in white, or seek audience with King Louis XIV in a baroque-inspired bezel. Mix and match as the perfect accompaniments to his adidas Originals by Originals collection, the Jeremy Scott x Swatch watch line is now available at select boutiques, such as colette of Paris.

I don’t know if its a watch or a detonator. I can’t describe this beast so here’s words from the manufacturer.
The UR-110 indicates time by means of a revolving satellite complication on planetary gears featuring three parallel hour/minute modules resembling torpedoes. The time is displayed on the right side of the watch, with the satellites following a vertical line – 0 to 60 minutes – in a downward motion. The ingenuity of this layout lies in allowing the wearer to view the time discreetly and elegantly without the need to pull back a cuff.
Enveloped in a secure titanium case, a central carousel provides the complication with stability and equilibrium, while planetary gearing keeps the three counter-balanced time modules in parallel formation. The dial side Control Board features small seconds; an “Oil Change” indicator to alert the user when it is time for a service; and a Day/Night indicator to help keep track of changing time zones. Visible on the back, twin air turbines minimize wear in the automatic winding system.
