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.

Italian Architect and Designer Andrea Morgante has always been inspired by organic engineering, that is, the influence of shapes found in nature on his work. So when he was offered to do a wristwatch for Alessi, he couldn’t help but apply the ribbed look of a tray he designed previously thus creating a watch where grooves permeates through it entirely, from the bracelet to the case and then to the glass.

Every year for the past decade, Issey Miyake has released a single wristwatch designed by a prominent designer. This year, the eleventh new series is called simply, the ‘W’ and it has been created in collaboration with Japanese car designer Satoshi Wada. Satoshi’s design milestones include designing the A5 for Audi and a long history with Nissan.

The watch is intended to be a minimal no-nonsense design and it features a quartz chronograph movement but has a second hand that moves instantly like that on an automatic watch with the same button click feel of an automatic movement. Those who’ve worn an automatic watch would probably appreciate this.

Billed as the ‘watch that understands time zones’, Seiko has created the first solar powered GPS watch that receives GPS signals and identifies the time zone, time and date data using four GPS satellites. The watch updates automatically once a day and also on demand. It’s named after the company’s 1969 predecessor which was the world’s first quartz watch. It will be released in the fall of 2012 with a price of around 2000-3000 euros. There will be five models with one special edition limited to 2500 units.

CK knows when it has a hit on it’s hand (pun intended). Every single person at their booth at this year’s Baselworld was sporting one of their new ‘Cogent’ watches. The cogent is a very minimal watch with a mineral crystal glass that also covers the side of the watch. There are four visible screws that hold it up giving it a more modern / architectural look.

Ikepod has always had one of its foot in the art world thanks to its designer Marc Newson’s prolific work in the field. This year, they go one step further with a collaboration watch called the ‘THE HORIZON BY KAWS’ with infamous street artist named KAWS.

For those who don’t know Kaws, he is one of the few that have been successful both as a contemporary artist with his paintings and sculptures and also commercially with his vinyl toys and his clothing brand named Originalfake. He is most famous for his trademark ‘X’ symbol that he’s used to rework familiar icons such as Mickey Mouse, the Michelin Man, SpongeBob SquarePants and now an automatic Ikepod watch.
