Breitling and Freediver, Herbert Nitsch

Who is Herbert Nitsch, and how did he earn the title “Deepest Man on Earth”?  Well, Herbert is the free diving world’s phenom and the newest representative for Breitling’s Superocean watch.  He is the perfect choice for the job, given the fact that he has acquired 31 world records in free diving.  The Breitling Superocean has traveled that road to the bottom of the sea and back to dry land…but the story doesn’t end there.  Herbert is an extreme pilot, as well, achieving world record status in both arenas.  Nitsch is also known as “The Flying Fish”, as he is the only human to free dive to the incredible depths of 700 feet, on a single, deep breath, as well as being a pilot, who takes his plane to intense heights.  It seems appropriate that Breitling would join forces with this amazing individual.  Breitling has equipped Nitsch with the perfect performance watch for his adventures, the Breitling Superocean.  This precision instrument has accompanied Nitsch on his previous dives, and will be his partner on his next endeavor…an attempt to reach his ultimate goal of free diving to the celebrated 1000 foot mark.  The Breitling Superocean will be on his wrist when he meets that challenge!

Jason Bourne Sporting A TAG Heuer

First and foremost, TAG Heuer is a watch making company.  They have earned a legendary reputation for their innovativeness and dedication to timekeeping.  Creating the most accurate chronographs in history and developing inventions, which were patented, and still in use today by many fine watch companies.  They obviously have strong ties to the Formula One racing world, but did you know that TH has a presence in Hollywood?  As early as 1960, TAG Heuer was working on the development of the, now famous TY Film Master stopwatch.   The Film Master was designed to give Hollywood directors the ability to track how much of their film footage had been used in a particular filming sequence.  These innovations for the film industry gave TAG Heuer a place on the big screen.  Today, the avant-garde watch maker has a presence in the filming of many great movies.  In “Good Luck Chuck” starring Dane Cook and Jessica Alba, Dane is wearing a TH Monaco Chronograph.  In Jodie Foster’s film, the “Brave one”, her character sports a TAG Heuer Twin-Time Carrera, and in “The Bourne Ultimatum”, the famous character which Matt Damon plays, wears a TAG Heuer Link Chronograph, featuring a blue dial.  This huge screen presence is evidence of the respect that actors and directors have for the TAG Heuer name.

Breitling Chronomatic Diamondworks Will Blow You Away

Ok, the superior watch makers at Breitling have done it, again.  Wow! That is the reaction I had, and I’m sure you will have, when you get a look at the newest creation from this authoritative watch maker.  The Breitling Chronomatic Diamondworks watch was recently unveiled, and isn’t it spectacular.  The 01 Chronomatic Diamondworks is the 2nd generation of the Chronomatic watch, which was produced in 2009.  Looking over the original Diamondworks, it’s hard to believe that Breitling could raise the bar any higher, but they have.  The 01 Chronomatic Diamondworks is dripping in 18 carat rose gold and diamonds.  The setting of the diamonds is one of a kind, as is the movement which runs the timepiece.  The powerful automatic winding mechanical movement is one of Breitling’s proprietary innovations.  Breitling, leaders in their industry, have infused this watch with some surprising and unique design elements.  The Diamond setting is like nothing you’ve ever seen before.  The diamonds which mark the hours are displayed in a double row, atop a beautiful Mother-of-Pearl dial, and the bezel diamonds are meticulously integrated with numerical carvings, giving off an almost hieroglyphic appearance.  There is no way to mistake this for any other, than a Breitling.  The combination of exceptional horologic design and superior craftsmanship give this watch real collector appeal.

TAG Heuer’s Carrera Calibre 360, Mechanical Genius

Written by Debbie. Posted in Men's Watches, News, TAG Heuer, Watch Brands, watch history

TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 360

Starting with the release of the first Carrera Calibre 360 by TAG Heuer, there has been a buzz.  This concept watch first appeared at the Baselworld exhibition of 2005, and got plenty of attention.  TAG Heuer created the Carrera Calibre 360 with mechanical ingenuity dating back to the early 1900’s, when Heuer’s grandfather invented the first mechanical chronograph, with the ability to measure time by 1/100th of a second.  The introduction of the 2005 Carrera Calibre 360 was witness to the first wrist worn chronograph, with these capabilities.  At the heart of the watch beats two independently designed mechanisms, which allow for regular speed during normal use of 28,800 beats per hour, and super revved-up speed of 360,000 beats per hour in chronograph mode.  At chronograph speed, the Carrera Calibre 360 moves ten times that of any other mechanical wrist worn watch in the world.  What gives the acceleration?  Ask TAG Heuer, who earned 3 elite patents for their mechanical design of this watch. 

The next version of the Carrera Calibre 360 would come in 2006, and be crafted of 18 carat Rose Gold.  This concept watch was in limited production of just 500 pieces, and was designed with the collector in mind.  If you appreciate master craftsmanship and innovative technology, you’re going to love the TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 360 watches.
