Here is a (growing) comprehensive list of all the one-of-a-kind watches made and donated by brands to the 2011 edition of the Only Watch charity auction to be held in Monaco in September. As of writing there are 34 participating Only Watch 2011 brands that will offer a piece for auction. The below list will be updated as new information comes in. The names of the piece are under the image of that respective piece.
Among the nicest points regarding the style and design in the observe, and a thing which genuinely adds to its daily-wearableness, is Blancpain has omitted just about anything unnecessary in the design and style; most conspicuously, there’s no “annual calendar” written anywhere as well as the observe is significantly better for it. George Daniels famously wrote that considered one of the terrific dangers in developing challenging watches is it’s tough to prevent building them seem like a “gas meter” and that pitfall is one to which the Blancpain Villeret Annual Calendar GMT isn’t going to fall victim. The slight asymmetry of the date indication windows using the placement of your GMT dial gives you a little much-needed dynamism at the same time; with out it this kind of factor can wind up becoming rather static. Blancpain made use of to try and do plenty of this and even now do it better than most.

Ceramic like a watch situation material continues to sometimes evoke skepticism, as ceramic features a brittle failure mode – to place it plainly, it’ll break ahead of it’ll bend – but modern technical ceramics largely seem to be capable of deal with the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune and undoubtedly the observe internets are not precisely littered with pictures of broken ceramic observe situations with indignant captions (although you may come across them in case you appear). Ceramic being a situation materials is just not a mere freak of modern-day luxury advertising both; Seiko started utilizing a ceramic bezel shroud in its 1000m Pro Diver quartz model in 1986. You will find benefits and disadvantages to any materials and also you spend your dollars and also you takes your odds, but the obstacles to wider adoption of ceramic as being a case material appear to be technical as opposed to sensible.

As opposed to making an attempt to ape the usual seem and come to feel of the perpetual calendar, the Omega Globemaster Annual Calendar boldly does its own thing. The case type sits somewhere among dressy (fluted bezel) and casual (sturdy lugs and thickness) and the pie-pan type dial exhibits the date down at 6 o’clock plus the month with a central hand and abbreviated months drawn in between the hour markers over the outer section in the dial. The view has one among Omega’s significantly high-tech METAS-certified movements within, so it isn’t going to just look revolutionary. If you want a badass calendar observe which is just a small bit various, this really is it.
