There are currently no details on the price or availability, but it is to be expected to be very high and of course, numbers will be very limited. As a high-end watch that has almost every major complication in it, this piece is definitely the standout for Blancpain this year. Price will be in the 0,000 - 0,000 range. blancpain.comChristophe Claret Kantharos Watch Hands-On

Speedmaster '57 And A Custom Made Strap
A few years ago Busser would have no doubt been hesitant to release a non-watch item. However, with the success of the MB&F MAD Gallery and the sale of other types of mechanical art (in addition to horological machines), I think the limited edition MusicMachine will do quite well. It is much more fun than useful, but then again so are a lot of watches. MB&F quite meaningfully meant for the MusicMachine to look like a space ship, and the music box itself to look like an engine. The main body of the MusicMachine is in either white or black piano lacquered walnut wood. Why? For sound amplification purposes of course.
There is no shortage of this going on around the dial. Still, reading the time is very simple. Patek Philippe incorporates the day/date complications very smoothly around the subsidiary seconds dual. Toward the top of the dial is a power reserve indicator. At first I felt put off by the "8 day" label on the dial as being unnecessary. Then I realized that it was useful because the power reserve indicator is unmarked and it gives the wearer an idea of what the eight marks on the scale mean. The dual hints of red on the dial are elegantly inserted.
Robbins's life and career is better detailed in this story by Adam Green in the New Yorker. Very cool, but unfortunately it doesn't offer advice on how to keep your watch or wallet safe.Have Expensive Watch, Looking For Love
