Attached to the same retro-futuristic rubber strap, the Horlogical Machine No. 5 RT retains the bold looks of the original. It isn't a watch for everyone, but as we stated in our original review, the watch is exceptionally well done for what it is. MB&F will release the HM5 RT as a limited edition of just 66 pieces at a price of ,000.

The secret to the Big Bang was how it was aimed at the right demographic with the right design. Hublot wasn't trying to convince Blancpain wearers to suddenly wear a modern looking high-end sport watch. Instead, Hublot was trying to offer Rolex and other more standard luxury sport watch wearers something novel, and arguably more "now" to wear. Hublot was innovative in that it was perhaps the first major Swiss watch brand to focus on the affluent black community in the United States. This helped the brand make headway in pop culture, and even got itself named in a few songs. Despite not having the heritage or prestige of some other brands, the Big Bang really took off.

My two favorite elements about the Scuba Libre Chlorofish are the diving style case and the skeletonized dial. Swatch is perhaps the only company who can offer a cool skeletonized quartz movement-based watch for such a cheap price. In fact, you really don't see skeletonized quartz watches that often at all. Our favorite of those is still the Swatch Random Ghost, which probably has the same or a very similar three-hand movement as the Scuba Libre collection.

The Gc-3’s bezel – which is very reminiscent of that of an Audemars Piguet Royal Oak – and the unusual shape of the case and crown guard, makes the whole watch look slightly larger than the dimensions would suggest. You could describe the Gc-3 as being a bit ‘bling,’ but this is largely down to Gc’s fashion heritage, and it certainly is not ‘too much’ – for me, at least.

I cannot wholeheartedly admonish these timepieces even though a very reasonable reaction to them is "WTF?" There is artistic merit here, and because the cases aren't shaped like geological findings they in no way match the status of the Andre Checa watch. In the end, these are nice ladies pieces wearing thick fur coats, and that is all I have to say about that.

SevenFriday's founder, Daniel Niederer, was a bit tired of the typically stuffy and stiff way the watch industry approached design, as well as how it sold watches. A former luxury watch distributor, Niederer shared with me that he felt some of the watch industry's margins on their products were out of line with production costs, as well as consumer expectations.  He also hated how the brands he helped sell were stuck on (literally) the same old designs and marketing practices. Seeing tons of room for change and improvement, for Daniel, the only solution was do it himself.

Here is watch that you won't see everyday. In fact, you will probably never see it at all. This is a totally unique Voutilainen Decimal Minute Repeater GMT watch with a semi-erotic display and a hunter-style case back that is probably one of his coveted Masterpiece watches. There are a few unique elements to the watch in addition to the artwork on the rear of the case that makes it distinct from other known watches by Kari Voutilainen. Whether or not the theme of the piece is to your taste, this is an amazing watch by one of today's best independent watchmakers. This watch once again represents the "seven daughters of atlas" (Plediade) from Greek mythology. Voutilainen produced his Masterpiece No. 7 watch in a similar theme in 2006, also with seven ladies on the rear of the case. So while I am not sure if this is technically another "Masterpiece" model, it does once again revisit the theme for a totally unique piece.

On the plus side, fashion brand watches are often very well designed and of a high-quality. The element that some people dislike about these watches having known names is a plus factor to others. Also, and while this is not a universal rule, these brands often have access to really good suppliers or materials that only the biggest brands have access to. I'd say that in the end, it really depends on the person. Some people are totally OK (or even eager) with the idea of wearing a watch from a major fashion label, and others for equally legitimate reasons simply won't go near them. For that reason luxury fashion watches are among the most controversial items in the world of watches.

The outer internal bezel of the Oris Big Crown ProPilot Altimeter watch has a scale for the altitude, while the inner part (which is recessed) uses the rear of the yellow tipped hand to indicate the barometric pressure. Oris will actually make two versions of the watch available, one with a scale for meters and another for an altitude scale in feet.

There is something very macho about flirting with danger. Sure, radioactivity can cause an array of harmful cellular damage, but so can smoking and people still do that. The science is unclear as to just how unsafe depleted uranium is, and Hublot doesn't suggest wearing it full time. In fact, if you really need a watch to wear with a radioactive protection suit, this would be it. Having said that, Hublot has been advised that under certain circumstances deleted uranium may be possible to wear on one's wrist and the nature of the timepiece's particular complications is dedicated to measuring that time.
