The very first Reine de Naples watch was designed by Abraham Louis Breguet for Caroline Murat, the ambitious and conniving Queen of Naples and younger sister of Napoleon Bonaparte. The watch is believed to be the first example of a wrist watch.
Walter Lange re-established A. Lange & Sohne in his mid-sixties, a time when most people are considering not making watches, but simply receiving the gold watch and retiring. He opend his company for business on December 7th 1990, in his home town of Glashütte in Saxony, a town he had to leave in 1948 after his family was expropriated.
70 years ago, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry took off on a reconnaissance flight over France and never returned. Now, IWC Schaffhausen commemorates the last flight of the celebrated pilot and author with three special limited editions, thereby strengthening its longstanding partnership with Saint-Exupéry’s descendants.
The L.U.C Lunar Big Date was first launched in 2009, but now it gets a complete overhaul by adopting the full design codes of the new L.U.C aesthetic; the moon phase is so accurate that the difference between the true lunar cycle and the indication given by the timepiece amounts to just one day every 122 years. The watch is available in 18-carat white gold.
TW Steel has created a special edition watch to celebrate its collaboration with Dutch DJ Mitchell Niemeyer. The 45mm Canteen Bracelet model called the Mitchell Niemeyer Special Edition (TW313) has been designed to reflect brand ambassador Niemeyer’s energy and passion.

It would appear that Professor Van Helsing has another Dracula legend to track down. HYT has produced the H1 Dracula DLC imbued with ‘immortal technology’. The 48.8 titanium black DLC features brushed, shot-peened and satin-finished surfaces and is water-resistant to 100m.
Arnold & Son presents two new versions of its UTTE tourbillon. With the A&S8200 movement measuring just 2.97 mm thick and the final cased watch just 8.34 mm, the UTTE is one of the thinnest tourbillon wristwatches ever produced, although not as thin as the Roshan Martin Légende Tourbillon we featured last week (it measures just 5.7mm in height).
It’s Friday once more and time for our unfailingly popular pre-weekend feature, ‘Match the watch with the shoe.’ This week we present the brand new limited edition Nike Lunar Force 1 World Basketball Festival shoe. It comes in an unusual basketball-textured brown leather colorway complemented with some nifty navy accents around the collar and heel. The sole is crisp white Lunarlon paired with an icy blue outsole.
