The Mutewatch(€199) is a fully functioning watch with a hidden touch screen that can be navigated with a swipe. The Mutewatch is as silent as the name states. Its alarm doesn’t make a sound. It just vibrates your wrist and can be dismissed by pinching the watch. "Mutewatch is a silent alarm in the shape of a vibrating wristband. This discreet device with its disguised touch screen brings structure and time back to its user. It serves as a quiet reminder that helps you to follow your own agenda without disturbing people in your surroundings. Mutewatch is always at hand and allows you to navigate swiftly between its functions, its clock, alarm and timer, giving you the ability to set your vibrations as you go. "
MB&F has just announced the Horological Machine No4 Thunderbolt watch. The watch inspired by aviation, it is made of titanium and and crystal. Only 20 watches will be made this year and will be for $158,000! Watch a video of it after more. "The sleek aerodynamic form of the Thunderbolt’s titanium and sapphire envelope has its roots in Maximilian Büsser’s childhood passion for assembling model plane kits, though none looked remotely as futuristic as this. The striking transparent sapphire section of the case requires over 100 hours of machining and polishing to transform an opaque solid block of crystal into a complex, exquisitely curved panel allowing the light to come in and the beauty of Thunderbolt’s engine to stand out. Every component and form has a technical purpose; nothing is superfluous and every line and curve is in poetic harmony. Articulated lugs ensure supreme comfort. Highly legible time is a fringe benefit."
