Breitling Bentley B06 S:

It involves a central hand sweeping around the dial in half a minute and thus ensuring extremely precise eighth-of-a- second readings of the times it measures. Another feature is the “variable tachymeter” with rotating bezel, serving to calculate average speeds whatever the time elapsed, the distance covered or the speed reached. The Bentley B06 S is available in steel or red gold and comes with on a bracelet or strap in leather, crocodile or rubber. Price: $10,630 read more

Inside The Horological Smartwatch

Frédérique Constant and Alpina have each launched an analog-dialed Horological Smartwatch that offers wearers the ability to monitor sleep and activity by connecting it to a mobile device.

As the watch is worn, the data accumulated in a specially developed module is synced to the owner’s app on a handheld device via Bluetooth technology. The watch will not require charging as its quartz movement operates via a two-year watch battery. The timepiece will operate independently from the handheld device and store data for approximately thirty days. The wearer activates the activity or sleep modes via the crown, and the function is then indicated in the subdial at 6 o’clock. read more
