Buys - Watch These!

New watches have arrived to help you keep track of time and stop you from saying that you have none! Just launched at The Hour Glass:

For Girlies:

Hublot's Big Bang Steel Tutti Fruitti Rose comes in an elegant mother-of-pearl dial, satin-finished case, steel bezel set with 48 baguette-cut pink sapphires and its signature adjustable pink alligator fusion strap. This mechanical chronograph beauty with automatic winding movement and Hublot's Calibre HUB4300 adds a touch of femininity to your wardrobe.

DeLaneau presents the industry's first fully functioning timepieces Magnolia and Lys, with side-by-side jumping hours and jumping minutes with an aligned focal point for quick, easy reading. Adding the jumping minutes to the equation requires two complementary discs – one for tenths of minutes and another for single minutes. So, instead of moving a single disc once an hour, this movement must generate enough power to activate a disc every minute. Three discs jump simultaneously 24 times a day, totaling 1608 jumps a day, hence giving rise to the calibre's name - 1608. High-fire enameling, miniature enamel painting, hand engraving and precision gem-setting and impeccable hand finishing on every detail make this a true beauty from inside out.

For The Boys:
Ikepod launches an horological piece that combines elements of the world of art and design, collaborating with leading contemporary artist Jeff Koons, one of the most exciting living artists today. This masterpiece uses the Horizon model inspired by the hemispheric shape of the unique IKEPOD case and the Marc Newson dial and concept. The result is the Horizon "Cannonballs", using a classic triangle of cannonballs as a minimalist approach to a greater concept. The "Incredible Hulk's" colour has also been used as a double reference to colonial American culture merging seamlessly into pop culture within the context of contemporary art world. 
MB&F's brand new HM2-SV combines highly engineered, state-of-the-art technology and crystal-clear sapphire featuring a totally transparent sapphire case with titanium back, sapphire dials, carefully hand-finished details and a powerful 349-component engine that drives the indications on its iconic twin dials. This beauty's entire top half of the sapphire case is extremely scratch-resistant, since sapphire's hardness is second only to diamond. The engine, developed by award-winning master watchmaker Jean-Marc Wiederrecht, features the world's first mechanical movement offering, with Instantaneous Jump Hour, Concentric Retrograde Minutes, Retrograde Date, Bi-Hemisphere Moon Phase and Automatic Winding. 
Urwerk returns to robotics with the latest UR203. The satellite complication is the nerve centre of this amazing timekeeping instrument, crafted from ARCAP P40, a stable non-ferrous and non-magnetic alloy. The internal clockwork is CNC machined and milled with micron-precision, with incredibly demanding precision of manufacture, as the cams, rubies and transporters that ensure the ultra-precise alignment of the telescopic minute-hands are all revealed. This feather-light satellite complication is a mere 3.57 grams and is also equipped with an innovative mechanical automatic winding movement regulated by Urwerk's double turbine system, with an oil change indicator and a horological odometer spanning 150 years that keeps track of the total number of years of the movement's operation, similar to that of a car.
