2358-3631-55B

For Baselworld 2013, Blancpain launched another world first complication, a women mechanical chronograph and a diver’s his and her collection.

The most notable from the introductions is the complication, where Blancpain combined the tourbillon and the carrousel. These are two devices added to a mechanical movement to reduce the effects of gravity on it’s accuracy. For the first time, both of these time regulators are combined in a single watch by Blancpain, though it isn’t clear whether having two different regulators actually is an improvement or it’s meant to be another feather in Blancpain’s hat for have acheived another complication milestone.

The Hublot Masterpiece LaFerrari

Masterpiece MP-05 LaFerrari

Masterpiece MP-05 LaFerrari

Hublot’s new addition to the world of exceptional watchmaking is the all new Masterpiece MP-05 LaFerrari. It’s a hand-wound tourbillon wristwatch with an eyecatching line of 11 barrels interconnected together that discharge and give the watch its 50 day reserve which I’m told is a world record in power reserve capacity.

If you caught the Ferrari in the name, it’s because its tied to that very car and the watch was developed alongside the Ferrari team, though I would suspect that their contribution was limited to the co-branding.

Finally, 637 components; The vertical face in front shows the seconds and the hour/minute are displayed to the right of the barrel. No word on price and limited to just 50 numbered pieces.

Harry Winston Opus 12

For those who aren’t familiar with Harry Winston, every year the brand launches a truly innovative mechanical monstrosity that would leave anyone drooling. This year marks their 12th release which has been created in collaboration with watchmaker Emmanuel Bouchet and it really lives up to the hype of the series – The money shot in the watch is when the hour and minute markers roll 180 degrees. It is hard to explain the visual effect so the best thing to do is watch the video presentation at the top. The price is approximately $260,000.
