As any JLC fan will know, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso was originally developed in the 1930s to enable British colonial officers to play polo without fear of breaking their expensive wrist watches while at play. As the name suggests, the watch was able to swivel round so that it was protected from any potential harm.
As Christmas draws ever closer it’s time to decide what you dream about versus what is genuinely affordable, and the new Powermatic80 series from Tissot could be a worthy contender for a happy compromise. Earlier this year Tissot introduced the Powermatic80 series which features a record-setting power reserve of 80 hours.

For 2013, Swatch has released a fun gents Christmas collectible inspired by the currently hugely popular trend for Christmassy knit jumpers. Called Red Knit, the watch is designed to look as if it has just been knitted as a Christmas sweater of the type your grandmother usually gives you, but in fact is now readily available in several leading stores.
Just in time for Christmas, Jaquet Droz releases The Lady 8, a new fine jewellery watch which elegantly plays on the sensual curves of the figure 8.
It’s been a long time coming but Great Britain will now receive its very own set of limited edition Big Bang Ferrari timepieces.

The limited edition will only be available at selected Hublot retailers and Hublot boutiques in the UK.
In England, the Viking Age began on 8 June 793 when Vikings destroyed the abbey on Lindisfarne, a centre of learning that was famous across the continent. Monks were killed in the abbey, thrown into the sea to drown, or carried away as slaves along with the church treasures. It was an outrage of 9/11 proportions.
Have you ever been sitting in an Asian restaurant and thinking that those chopsticks you are holding don’t seem like the most logical eating utensil? I know when I was young and had a tough time using them I wondered that very thing. A fork just seemed like a much better tool for the task. What if I told you that they weren’t originally designed as eating utensils but as a tool for stirring the meal you were cooking or even stirring the fire? That is one of the oldest examples of re-purposing objects that I know of, but there are many more modern examples of products or materials finding new uses in industries that would have never thought to use them that way.
