[Only Watch] Cyrus Klepcys amazing display

Cyrus is the name (Cyrus II in fact) of the conqueror of Babylon during the 5th century BC. Cyrus II, seeing the cultural and technical treasures of the ancient Babylon, decided not to burn the city (Babylonians, probably discovered the use of low voltage electricity for electrolysis, aka «Baghdad battery»).
He even offers a new development to the city by promoting commercial exchanges through money, a newly created concept that also facilitated tax collection…

[Only Watch] Van Cleef From the Earth to the Moon

The «Voyages Extraordinaires» by Van Cleef & Arpels, is one of the most subtle and refreshing storytelling of these last years.
A full French response to a certain horological presumptuousness.

Watchonicars @ Blancpain Super Trofeo @ Paul Ricard

We arrived at the Circuit Paul Ricard HTTT in Le Castellet for Rounds 7 - 8 - 9 of the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo.

Clear blue sky, not a cloud! The perfect weather to race! 
We have been quite excited all the way down from Switzerland because Watchonista will finally count on two cars from Team Autovitesse (Paris) for this weekend! 
Laurent Jenny and Remy Vauthier with the green Watchonicar n°19 and Cédric Leimer with the black/green n°63. Cédric is leading the PRO AM Championship!
Not only Super Trofeo races over the weekend. The powerfuls FIA GT1 will race on this amazing track. The Paul Ricard HTTT   (High Tech Test Track - http://www.circuitpaulricard.com) looks brand new and the SRO organization is always ultra professional.
The security is quite important and we missed a pass to enter…we waited few minutes and Laurent came to pick us up with his scooter!

Watches & Net: blog revolution in "Heure Suisse"

Watchonista contributes to the heading "Media and Communication"  of "Heure Suisse" magazine. In addition to the article: 


Heure Suisse No. 111: In the kiosks from May 23, 2011

[Baselworld] De Bethune, future experimental.

I was quite astonished by the presence of De Bethune at Basel World, they launched plenty novelties during the WonderWeek of Geneva and thus I supposed that De Bethune was simply going to represent the same timepieces…

Anyway, I didn’t mean to be mean, once again they just surprised me. Overall one could expect DB28Tourbillon, even the DB25QP, but the DBM was acomplete breath-taker.

[BaselWorld] Opus XI Harry Winston, Time Bomb.

Considering the environment of crisis, it would have been more logical that BaselWorld had been poorer than the SIHH, but paradoxically, one assisted on the exact opposite event - an exciting BaselWorld - multicolored, wooow, a watchmaking full of creative explosions. While the SIHH would have sunk in the abysses of annoy without the excellent tribute of Panerai.

MB&F HM3 Rebel, new paradigme.

Today it uses the word paradigm in all circumstance. Me first!

Sometimes intensive use, but frequently justified as technology revolutionizes today more that cultures or social organizations.

This word paradigm, applies perfectly how the net has literally revolutionized the Maghreb countries, all the decades are socially agitated by riots in these countries, riots, crushed in blood , the mainstreams medias are throwing a discreet veil.

The net thus creating a new paradigm.

In the same manner, today Max Busser revolutionizes the watchmaking communication, and imposes a three dimensional paradigm of time reading with the unbelievable HM3.

De Béthune 2011 novelties - DB28 Part 2/2

About comfort at wrist, it is unavoidable to talk about the DB28,the contrast between the non-sensation of the watch (du to is ultra lightweight full titanium case), the Ufological visual is very destabilizing.

No less than 4 differents versions of DB28 for the first official presentation!
