How much would you possibly pay for a time-piece on your wrist? True a lot many luxury brands for watches are floating around, but the latest auction for a time piece could stun many. We sure have heard of bejeweled, crystalled and Swarovskied watches that cost the moon, but this auction saw prices hit the roof and bring in record breaking bidding, throwing recession worries out of the window.
The vintage Rolex in question, Baguette Diamond Cosmograph, was made originally in 1985. By watch manufacturing standards where designs have been changing every possible day, it can be considered vintage.
The Geneva auction was conducted by Antiquorum, billed the world’s leading watch auctioneer that brought in a total of 360,000 Swiss Francs which translates to roughly $ 315,000. Under the hammer were 481 timepieces, but this one saw some fierce bidding. The auction saw a lot of potential interest from Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Russian Federation and the United States, besides internet based interest.
GD910 is a brave and innovative attempt by LG. LG GD910 is actually a gorgeous wristwatch phone which is not at all afraid of water. Yes, this is one of the best waterproof wristwatch phones. In addition to its capacitive touchscreen display, it features a Gapless Windows and 3 mechincal keys allowing you to access it with ease.
LG GD910 measures 60 x 39 x 13.9 mm, which makes it the World’s slimmest and smallest watchphone with 3G connectivity. And its Bluetooth offering makes it a watchphone with robust connectivity options. It offers you with a multi format music player which is capable of playing MP3, AAC, AAC+,WAV, MIDI formats and features text to speech option also the phone's cost is Rs42000 so if your looking to buy a cheap one, this isn't one of it.
Greubel Forsey's finished inventions are the result of years of stringent development and exhaustive testing. One common denominator of all Greubel Forsey's inventions, besides their sublime beauty, is that they all reliably improve timekeeping precision.The 'Double Tourbillon 30°', Greubel Forsey's first invention, features two tourbillons, one rotating inside the other.In the second invention, four asynchronous tourbillons independently contribute to the extremely high accuracy of the 'Quadruple TourbillonThe third fundamental invention, the 'Tourbillon 24 Secondes Incliné, masters positional errors using a single ultra-light inclined tourbillon cage rotating with high angular velocity.
Gresso, a manufacturer of luxury mobile phones, unveiled its first watch collection Grand Wind Skeleton at BASELWORLD 2010 Show. I know Baselworld 2010 is over, but we just got the press-release from Gresso announcing the Grand Wind.
The name Grand Wind Skeleton is in close connection with the term 'self-winding'. This is what completes the creative idea of the collection - massive rotor of 18K gold is situated on the front of the dial. Elegant watch case, 45 mm diameter and 12 mm height, is executed of 18K gold. The movement is skeletonized and easy seen from both inner and outer side of the case.
Expect also a massive price tag on the Grand Wind.
