Rolex Deepsea Challenge Watch

Post by Mark

If you thought the Rolex Deepsea was bulky wait till you get a load of the Deepsea Challenge. Because the watch is rated for depths of up to 12,000 meters, the watch case is super thick as you can see in the picture below. [Link]

The Mikrogirder 10000

Post by Mark

God damn that’s fast, and it’s all mechanical! It’s so fast you can’t even see the chronograph hand when it’s activated. How fast? It does a full rotation of the dial in 10,000th of a second!! [Link]

Jaeger LeCoultre Titanium Master Minute Repeater

Post by Mark

This is my current dream watch but sadly costs like an arm, a leg and an additional $100,000.

Minute Repeaters do have an interesting history though. They were originally invented back in 1676 and they were very useful because before the invention of electricity this was a way of telling time at night in the dark.

If you watch the video above you’ll notice three different sets of strikes. The first series of strikes tells you what hour it is, the second series of strikes tells you the number of quarter hours and the final series of strikes tells you the amount of minutes after the quarter hours. In the video above it dings 9 times, then double dings 3 times, and then single dings again 13 times. First dings says its 9 o’clock, the 3 double dings signal 3 quarter hours which is 45 minutes, the final dings says add 13 minutes on top of the 45 which equals 58. So the time is 9:58. [YouTube]
