Samsung just jumped into the smartwatch fracas with a mean machine. It syncs with your Galaxy phone & offers over 70 compatible apps. Check notifications, control music play, take calls, & so on. It’s also got a 1.9 MP camera, 2 mics, & shoots 720p movies.
50 years ago, back when America had a space program, some brave dude got in the experimental rocket and orbited the earth 3 times wearing a Breitling. To celebrate the anniversary of that historic flight, Breitling has created a new version of the classic Cosmonaute chronograph featuring a distinctive 24-hour display.
Even while out for a run, what you really want to do is stare at a screen & absorb more data, right? This Smartwatch indulges your desire. As long as your phone is somewhere on your person, it will deliver data from your favorite fitness apps right to your wrist.
This is Breitling’s newest release in their classic Unitime Series. The Transocean Unitime Pilot in the all-black steel model is limited to a 1000 piece production run and features a unique worldtime mechanism. With 24 global time zones to choose from, you simply twist the crown to your chosen city for accurate date & time anywhere in the world, at a glance.
Paying homage to World War 2 era British codebreakers, this new chrono from Bremont uses actual parts from Britain’s once secretive Bletchley Park Government Code and Cipher School. The rotor of the watch is made from the wheel of an original Enigma cipher machine, while the crown is inset with a piece of pine taken from the floor of the fabled wartime facility.
With design cues taken from Italian race cars of the 1960s, the Portofino Chronograph’s 42mm case looks sporty yet classic. Nice move. And nice movement, as well. The self-winding mechanical movement is, of course, Swiss Made.
You’re looking at the smartest watch ever made. Not only will it tell you the correct time anytime, it also does all those other smart watch things like linking with your phone, and offering loads of apps to compliment your data-driven existence. It re-charges via Qi and runs 2 processors, one for high-speed wrist-computing, the other, a power-saving mode that will run the watch for 30 days without a recharge.
The new TAG Heuer Monaco Automobile Club de Monaco Black Edition is a new watch that’s somewhat connected to another vintage TAG from the 70s, but not exactly. Unless you happen to be a major league watch dork, the complicated lineage of this watch is much less interesting than the obvious & simple fact that it’s a black TAG and it looks good. Limited to 225 pieces.
The Breitling Emergency II is a Swiss-made luxury chronograph that also features a built-in dual-channel emergency satellite transmitter. When the ship sinks, the plane crashes or the summit push turns into a survival situation, this watch will signal rescue services through the international Cospas-Sarsat system, ensuring your call for help is heard. via
The award-winning TAG Heuer atelier has created some of the 21st-century’s biggest breakthroughs in watchmaking. At this year’s Baselworld Watch & Jewelry show they unveiled another: The first ever magnet-driven 100th-of-a-second chronograph. We think it looks wicked but it’ll take experts to explain the technology.
