Tagheuer Mikrotimer Concept

MIKROTIMER-Flying-1000-Dial-Detail

MIKROTIMER-Flying-1000-Concept-Chronograph

MIKROTIMER-Flying-1000-Back

Tag Heuer’s new concept chronograph is the world’s first mechanical watch that measures and displays the 1/1,000th of a second, making it 125 times more accurate than most existing mechanical chronographs and 10 times faster than the Heuer Carrera Mikrograph 1/100th Second world first presented in Geneva in January 2011.

At 1/1,000th of a second, a Formula One racecar at full throttle travels about ten centimeters. Over a 305 km race, this might not seem much — the length of a finger — but it is the difference between second place and a World Championship.

Reveal watches

Apology for the poor image but i liked Elle’s version of the reveal disc concept. This has been done before but last year’s Vue by Yves Behar has set off a trend with Elle and Axcent bringing out their own version.

The new Hublot

Hublot-Cle-Temps-1 (1)

One of the watches I missed at Baselworld: The La Clef du Temps watch by Hublot. Apart from looking science fiction, the watch allows the user to slow or speed up its movement (i was about to write speed up ‘time’ but that would factually incorrect :^)). Again, Ablogtoread has covered an interesting back story on the watch.

Casio Bluetooth Watch

BLE_G-SHOCK_press

Casio plays it safe and simple with its first next gen bluetooth watch at Baselworld. Since this is their first bluetooth product, the watch only does one function while communicating with smart phones – it automatically synchronizes with the time in smart phones so if your gps enabled smart phone automatically corrects its time zone based on where you are, your watch will too.

China drives Baselworld 2011

screen-china.national.flag

One of the things I noticed about this year’s fair was the amount of classic models. I chalked it up to recession and the demands of buyers for something more discreet, however, a reuters article shed further light:

“But the watch industry is also being pushed into redeveloping classic models, encouraged by Chinese demand.
As a result, many brands are re-fashioning old models such as Tag Heuer which last year launched a new version of its classic Carrera model, endorsed by actor Steve McQueen, which starts at 2,000 euros.

“Chinese prefer classic watches, watches with a heritage,” Guy Semon, Tag Heuer’s (LVMH.PA) vice president for sciences and engineering, told Reuters in an interview. “And as they have become major customers, this has helped drive the brand to return to some of its historical models.”
