    I thought this was a spoof thread from the Watch Snob claiming that the watches of the world leaders are the most important, but it appears it has some interesting things in.
    Thanks for sharing.

    cheers,

    Oooohhh noooo....not another list of "The Worlds Most Important Watches". Those lists seem to be populated with watches having some of the following criteria: Expensive european brands using mechanical movements and purposeless features like some variation of the tourbillon. Conspicuously absent are real innovations that had an impact like the ball bearing supported rotor, shock absorbing jewel mounts and the battery powered quartz timed movement. And for some reason known only to the author asian watch companies are conspicuously absent. I'm probably the last person to ask about Rolex history, but I do not believe Rolex invented the Oyster Case, the screwdown crown and marketed their version of the rotor wound movement in 1910. And yet the website seems to say so. Someone needs to be less speedy on the keyboard and do some fact checking.

    "Inside the watch is a miniature globe that rotates on all axes like a miniature planet."

    I did not know that planets rotated around ALL axes. All??
    WTF does that even mean???

    With an austere, iPod-like design, the Breguet Reveil du Tsar is elegant and complicated at the same time.











    I don't see it. Does anybody else?

    Maybe the author of that piece uploaded brand names and adjectives into a text generator and pressed the go button.
