ACHTUNG BABY! Italian bravura meets German engineering

References to the super Irish rock band aside, the first thing you notice about your average U-Boat watch is its diminutive size…all 50mm of it on the average model! Yes, your typical U-Boat timepiece is not for the weak of disposition: conservative types need not apply. Indeed, the alpha male types of Hollywood royalty grace several pages of the manufactures’ equally oversized brochures and press kits. In case you haven’t figured it out, U-Boat watches, just like their original submarine namesake, are bold, aggressive and oversized. One model, the FLIGHTDECK ECLIPSE, is so masculine,

Porsche introduces the Macan compact SUV

It’s new, smaller than its closest sibling, agile as a cat, and oh so powerful. The new Macan is Porsche’s first ever compact SUV--it’s flagship for a whole new class of vehicles. It’s not a matter of introducing a compact SUV to Porsche’s stable, but of putting a Porsche among compact SUVs. Bear with me, you’ll see.To start with, where the Macan S has an already impressive 3.0 litre V6 biturbo that hides 340bhp under the hood, the top-of-the-line Macan Turbo just can’t help declaring itself with a never-before-used 3.6 litre V6 biturbo that, with 400bhp of rated output,

Sartorial Sundials

The Navitron Steampunk Wrist Compass and Sundial Advertisements in gas-lit England would’ve labelled this a sunwatch, as made by sunwatchmakers with names composed of initials and notable surnames. Now the things have been fashioned into wearable sunwatches, wrist-sunwatches if you like, to attract steampunk aficionados with their off-beat tastes for improbable practicalities. I’ll admit that I’m one of them.But does it really work? It should, though not while being worn on the wrist.

Deeply Mechanical

On the move again. Deeper. TAG Heuer has put something new forward for those with the need for depth and the love of the visually mechanical.Many collectors are enamored by the timepieces of the deep, those that are not just dive watches but deep, deep dive watches. Watches that will keep on going long after your own mortal body will have been crushed if you happened to actually test the thing in the water. These watches are big, bulky and heavy in order to withstand the pressures you will see as you start reaching past where the light can go.

The Way The Future Was

MB&F REINVENTS THE DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Maximilian Busser is the First among Friends at Maximilian Busser & Friends, otherwise known as MB&F. He and the people that he gathers to him have given us four of their Horological Machines, the unconventional and free-fancy watches that turn the ideas of watchmaking on their head. He is free to roam where his imagination takes him. Many of his watches don’t even make sense… until you see them in person, in action. Once you see how they work, they become not only sensible but… almost inevitable.

Czar of a Russian Chronometer

When one conjures up Russian creations, we tend to bring up familiar names like Igor Sikorsky (Sikorsky helicopters), Mikhail Koshkin (chief designer of T-34 Russian tanks) and Alexei Tupolev (designer of the Tupolev Tu-144 and the Boran space shuttle). With watch enthusiasts, Poljot is a brand that comes to mind as the company was the earliest watchmaking company formed in the Soviet federation.The Russian watch industry during the Czar Russia was focused on the assembly of imported movements mainly from Germany and Switzerland,

Bred by America, Born for Britain, Blooded Over Manila

Bremont salutes the P-51 Mustang with a limited edition chronograph. An actual reliquary, the timepiece incorporates parts fashioned from the aluminum skin of a WWII veteran with a history that puts it in sorties above embattled Manila. In 2011, the award winning British brand Bremont introduced the Limited Edition Mustang P-51 watch—a salute to this phenomenal American-built fighter plane of World War II.From Bremont’s pre-release press statement (for the complete text and specifications,

The MB&F Legacy Machine No. 2, from Geneva, in Geneva

Editor-in-Chief Carl Cunanan takes a stroll through old Geneva with the MB&F Legacy Machine No. 2 perched proudly on his wrist. With him on loan from the MB&F showroom in Geneva, Carl felt compelled to document his fleeting moment with the LM2--short, but so very sweet.

Defining Classical

Jaeger-LeCoultre uses a brand new model line to remind us of their history.Jaeger-LeCoultre has been making some very strong statements lately, bringing forth wristwatches that grab attention and generate discussion at a glance. Their new pieces have been strong, masculine and daring, all in the direction of the next generation of wristwatches.But Jaeger-LeCoultre has been around for rather a long time, and has earned itself the reverential nickname of the Grande Maison. Since 1833,

In The Cold Rare Air

Christian Redl’s next challenge and the Edox Iceman II For a man, the irony of it will be excruciating, and for his timepiece, the extremes, mollifying. Extreme free diver Christian Redl who set the world record for diving under ice last year, now joins the Gokyo Project at Nepal’s Mount Everest National Park to challenge the glacial lakes of the Gokyo wetlands.On February 12, 2011, Redl dove 200 feet down into the frigid waters of Lake Weissensee in the Austrian Alps. The dive saw Redl descending at a rate of almost five feet per second and touching down after 42 seconds,

Big, Bold and Beautiful

The new face of luxury timekeeping. Do take the time to stop and stare. The name and the brand Hermès has always been synonymous to luxury and quality craftsmanship. First established by Thierry Hermès in 1837 as a harness workshop, the product lines of the company soon grew to include clothing, leather goods, handbags, perfume, tableware and jewelry. Today, Hermes is a multi-million dollar firm with hundreds of boutiques and franchises across the globe, and continues to provide nothing but the highest-quality goods for its clientele.In the year 2000,

Linderhof: Enough Gold to Make You Pass Out

There are many castles in Germany, but Linderhof in the deep Bavarian south ranks among the most famous and is certainly a fascinating gem to visit.Linderhof was built by Ludwig II, the king of Bavaria from 1864 to his mysterious death by drowning in a mountain lake in 1886. He was also called the “fairy-tale king”, because for much of his life he personified a romantic figure that might have emerged from a distant, primeval mythology. Linderhof is the only one he was able to complete during his lifetime.It is patterned after French prototypes of the preceding century,
