Urwerk's Felix Baumgartner winds us up with vigorous cranking of the EMC

Urwerk founder Felix Baumgartner himself shows us how to crank a charge into the EMC's Maxon generator. If you thought he was winding the EMC's mechanical movement, the vigorousness of the cranking would be very unsettling.

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.

The Exceptional L.U.C.

Chopard presents two spectacular pieces of horological machinery at BaselworldAt Baselworld 2013, Swiss Luxury Brand Chopard treated Calibre and the rest of the world’s press to their annual presentation at their ultra-ritzy pavilion. Among all the other pavilions in Hall 0.1, the main presentation hall of the watch fair, Chopard’s is one of the only pavilions that actually looked like a standalone boutique.During the presentation,

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,

Kobe Goes to China

The collection is limited to only 250 pieces worldwide. On August 7, 2013, the basketball superstar attended the event at Shanghai, much to the delight of the local NBA fans. There,

Timepiece of Empire

Blancpain Villeret Traditional Chinese Calendar The year is 2012, auspicious year of the Water Dragon, occasion of the first Olympics after the one in Beijing, and the year when China overtook the United States as the world’s top haute horlogerie market. This year, Blancpain presents the Traditional Chinese Calendar from its Villeret collection: the first wristwatch, the Manufacture asserts, to ever feature a Chinese calendar. It is a painstakingly crafted statement, honouring an ancient culture, and recognizing modern China’s place in the present.On first blush,

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,

Deeper Than You Thought

ORANGE, simply put is a color between red and yellow. But what has this got to do with diving or the DOXA SUB? It has been tested and proven that when you go diving, the color that is most visible underwater is the color orange. The DOXA SUB has built its reputation on this fact and the color orange.Few non-divers have heard of the watch company DOXA, but if ever a definitive history of the dive watch is written, one manufacturer will stand along side the likes of Rolex, Blancpain, and Omega as being a great dive watch. DOXA S.A. Is a small company from Bienne, Switzerland,

Conquering Constants

THE SOUL OF A NEW MANUFACTURE There is an interesting constant at Baselworld. No pun intended, as it’ll be made clear. There is something I have seen since the very first time I attended that wonderful, chaotic horological meeting place almost a decade ago, and in spite of all the change and relative chaos of this year’s event I saw it again.The days before Baselworld opens, all the brands are putting the final touches on their booths. Everything from million-dollar watches to priceless antiques to vintage cars to chairs and drinking water is brought in. In the middle of all that,

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.

Go Deep

Last September, Editor-in-Chief Carl Cunanan flew north to dive deep into waters off Hong Kong, without any life support. Carl was invited to join a handful of alumnos to be instructed by freedive record holder and Oris brand ambassador Carlos Coste. The experience was both an ordeal and a revelation. Diving deep into darker waters and mounting pressure, Carl had to awaken his body's latent adaptations for hoarding finite air while being crushed at depth. Here is his story. Part 1: So Deep It's Dark

High Seas Navigator

Montblanc celebrates traditional seafaring navigation with a one-of-a-kind combination chronograph wristwatch and nautical clock set.Long before the dawn of computer aided GPS, the only way for a mariner to determine his position on the endless expanse of a vast ocean was to do it manually, with the use of highly accurate clocks and a sextant to measure his geographic latitude and longitude. To accomplish this,
