London design duo Antoni & Alison (since 1987) have collaborated on a his n’ hers watch set with G-Shock. Best known for their hand drawn designs they explain “we love the
idea of this hi-tech wrist piece and have made it our own by drawing all over it, to make it
happier for women’s and more abstract for men.” The white body features cheerful scribbles in their trademark humorous style across the G-Shock classic and Baby G. Available at Selfridges & Casio Covent Garden.

We haven’t reached the point yet where we can time travel, but then again you have to walk before you can run. Watches showing different time zones is nothing new, but Montblanc‘s Timewalker World-Time Hemisphere Watch is very, very different. As its wearer travels across the timezones, they can rotate the brushed titanium bezel and crown to have the watch face show the daytime-nighttime range for the selected zone, indicated by city. Understandably, the Montblanc TimeWalker World-Time Hemisphere Watch is a set of two watches, one for the Northern Hemisphere and one for the Southern, each with its own distinct colorway and a view of its half of the world from above. On the 42mm steel caseback, Montblanc also added essentially an engraved cheat-sheet, cleverly listing additional reference points to aid in dialing-in your timepiece. The price begins at 00, but that’s only for the model in your neck of the woods. You’ll have to buy the other separately to complete the set. Arriving at Montblanc retailers in the coming months.

Different parts of the IWC‘s new flagship watch, the Ingenieur Constant-Force Tourbillon watch, fight for your attention. Do you stare at the meticulously well-crafted face and platinum casing or inside at the extremely precise inner workings? As is not often the case in life, both are the right answer. Surrounding the dark black dial with moon phase and power reserve displays is a solid, 46mm platinum and ceramic case fitted with a black crocodile leather strap. Inside, IWC used their caliber 94800 movement with patented constant force mechanism within the tourbillon, guaranteeing an extreme level of precision. Other features include a 96-hour power reserve, a porthole to the inner mechanics that can be fully seen from behind, and a countdown display showing the phases until the next full moon for both the northern and southern hemispheres. Available now from IWC and their select retailers for 0,000.
Magnetic fields may not be as painful or obvious as gravity can be, but that doesn’t mean that its affects can’t still be felt by our gear. Each year, we are surrounded by more and more magnets, presenting the commonly used Faraday cages within our timepieces with an almost constant barrage of energy as they try to protect the watch’s internal accuracy. Just a quick look around your desk probably reveals an iPad or similar device with a magnetic case built with at least 20 magnets around its edge. Now if you’re holding that thing in your hand while waiting for a snack cooking in the microwave, you can see what we’re talking about. Rising to the occasion, however, is Omega with their Anti-Magnetic Seamaster Aqua Terra watch, which uses a new inner soft iron case built with anti-magnetic components, called the Calibre 8508. With this in place, this watch can be protected far beyond the conventional piece on the market, up to 15,000 gauss. Paired with a black dial, a bright yellow second hand, and a stainless steel case and bad, this Seamaster Aqua Terra watch is ready to serve you and your family far into the future. It is expected to release sometime in 2013 at a currently undisclosed price..
Swedish watchmaker Halda has revealed its first modern watch design, the Halda Space Discovery watch. This unique watch consists of three parts: a Time Platform and two Time Modules. Each Time Module is a fully encapsulated watch designed to operate in a specific environment. The Mechanical Module, designed for use on earth, is, as the name suggests, a mechanical watch with a New Old Stock automatic movement that operates at 36,000 beats per hour, making it more accurate than traditional movements which beat at 28,800 beats. The Space Module features a TECAMAX case for superlative durability and precision; inside the case is a digital movement developed in-house with an eye towards low power consumption and efficiency. Combined with the Time Platform watch bracelet, the two Time Modules make the Space Discovery watch a truly comprehensive time-keeping solution. Admittedly, most of us won’t be going into space anytime soon, but with this watch you wont have to worry about the time wherever you may find yourself. For more information check out Halda.

Best known for its handcrafted leather goods, workwear, and denim, British label TENDER CO. embarked onto the foray of horology circuit with its “Hands-On” Mechanical Watch. Like everything else, artisans assembled each timepiece by hand in TENDER CO.’s workshop. It features a hand-wound Swiss-made movement with a dial face rotated by 45° to ease reading of the time. Citing TENDER CO.’s long association with railwork, indices on the watch were made to look like train tracks, with the brand’s Plautus logo as the 12 o’clock mark. Encased in solid stainless steel and protected by a reinforced acrylic crystal dome, there is also a clear caseback to observe the mechanical functions. Like the watch, the leather band itself went through an elaborate production process. Tanned for 18 month in oak bark, each fashioned to NATO-spec and appointed brass hardware. A true rustic work of art, the TENDER CO. “Hands-On” Mechanical Watch is currently available through select retailers around the globe, including Melbourne’s Up There store.
