Top 5 – Extraordinary Watches 2012

Le 31 December 2012

Last day of the year! It is time to present our latest TOP 5. Starting with this ranking of best 2012 “Extraordinary Watches“. We are not concerned by the price here (fortunately…) but by the mechanical (or other) inventiveness necessary to produce these kind of watches. Truce of blah blah, let’s go.

HYT : Hydro Mechanical watches

HYT offers a range composed of 4 versions that give the time thanks to two reservoirs located in the bottom of the watch connected to two tubes filled with fluids, oil and fluorescent water.

A strange name for a formula that is quite common in fact: Nitroglycerin. C3H5N3O9 arrives with a first asymmetric watch with an experimental name “ZR012 Experiment” made of zirconium (chemical element). Welcome to the land of weird chemical names and formulas…

Urwerk UR 210

Just like its big sisters 202 and 202s, the UR-210 displays the time in a surprising way and adopt a futuristic design. In spare parts it’s amazing, totally built and working, it’s amazing!

Christophe Claret X-Trem 1

Suspended Time. « X-TREM » for Experimental Time Research Engineering Mechanism. A watch with an impressive time display system via two steel spheres that move thanks to magnetic fields… Intriguing isn’t it?

Greubel Forsey GMT

Even if Greubel Forsey Invention Piece 2 watch has been priced “high complication watch” of the year we do prefer the GMT model of the brand. Unconventional and even even three-dimensional!

Here it is for this selection. Feel free to send us YOUR favorite discoveries of this year!
