"It makes no sense to produce a chronograph with a power reserve of 20 seconds," in his opinion. I agree. The Mikrotimer from last year was a big achievement for being able to measure 1/1000th of a second. The central seconds hand flew around like crazy needle and the world marveled at the technology. Mr. Babin was wearing one on the opposite wrist of the Mikrogirder. He personally tests these watches on a daily basis. The watches are then sent to the lab for analysis to see how they hold up. The wear and tear on a machine when an escapement moves so fast is intense and must be engineered really specifically.

I first wrote about the new Seamaster Planet Ocean watches for 2011 here and discussed details on the Omega Calibre 9300 movement here.

I recently had an ironic conversation with the CEO and COO of Ulysse Nardin. They explained to me the importance of building useful complications that people would use on a regular basis. That they weren't into making wildly designed watches that had a very niche appeal. To that I responded, "well what about the Freak?" Correcting themselves, "Beside the Freak we mean. That is why we called it the Freak, because it is wild and different." It most certainly is. The Freak has recently been followed up with the Freak Diavolo. Not exactly a replacement, the Freak Diavolo improved upon the original design in a few ways, and also added a tourbillon complication. The "Diavolo" part of the name came from two horn looking windows in the back of the watch next to another window of the mainspring that act like a power reserve indicator. I first talked about the Ulysse Nardin Freak Diavolo watch when debuting it to the world here.

I usually don't like such "laundry lists," but everything works nicely here. This isn't the first watch that boasts all these features (not by far), but the power of the Supermarine 500 is that it feels like it is more than a mere sum of its parts. The design is influence by the Supermarine water landing place. I discuss this in my first article on the watch (link above). You can feel the retro influence in the dial, the numerals, and the shape of the case. It feels pleasantly nostalgic and tasteful - as opposed to ephemeral in its appeal. Over a year of knowing about this watch and it still looks good. Which is actually a test for if a watch has a nice design. You should all remember this. See a watch and are not sure whether it is a design you'll love in a few months? Here is what you do. Look at the watch you want to buy. Then don't look at it for a bit. Instead, look at tons of other watches. Online, in stores, where ever... After that go back to the original watch you liked and wanted to get. Does it still look good? Still hold that place in your heart compared to everything else you've look at? If so, you know it might be a good purchase choice.

In the end, being taken seriously is a simple formula: being noticed + valuation of worth = degree serious perceived. The watch will help get you noticed, and the watch you are wearing will indicate the value of your worth. How's that for a short response?

About two years ago Audemars Piguet released a watch that for me was the predecessor to this timepiece. It was the Royal Oak Skeleton watch that I discussed hands-on here. A very cool watch, the Royal Oak Skeleton was offered in steel and rose gold. It was highly esteemed and hard to get. Price was from about k - k. Now there is a much more limited and much more exclusive version that will be available in 2012.

The movement itself is very interesting and actually produced and finished by another very admired watch industry talent: Kari Voutilainen. Kari is more or less considered by watch makers and collector's alike as being a "super guy." He is also pretty good at making timepieces. Mojon is the movement architect and Voutilainen is the guy who makes them. Both gentlemen are honored on the movement itself with their names being signed in cursive on a bridge visible through the exhibition caseback. The movement is highly finished and beautiful, but not in an ostentatious manner. MB&F has always impressed me with their movement finishing, and here they get to express their dedication to detail on a very classic looking caliber.

Pierre DeRoche is a decidedly small brand with a big sense ambition. The brand owner is Pierre Dubios, one of the three Dubois brothers. The other two run Dubois-Depraz, the important watch movement module maker that I discussed here. For Pierre, Pierre DeRoche is sort of the unofficial Dubois-Depraz watch brand. They use all Dubois-Depraz movements, and the three brothers each wear one.

The first thing that is very obvious, is the visual depth of carbon fiber that comprises the face. As someone who has a great love for carbon fiber, and who has items comprised wholly from it, I can say it is the absolute best that I have seen on a watch and 'moves' with the light, as good carbon fiber should. Secondly, the pushers of the chronograph feel different than your average pushers. When first depressed, it gives the characteristic 'click' that you expect when starting the function, however, each additional push of the same pusher does not. The motion is smooth and silent until the chronograph is stopped and reset, then it clicks again.
