    Haute Horology and Ultra Complications

    A thread I started somewhere else. It would be a major chore for me to have to re-do it here. Some real good pictures.

    [sorry no linking to another forum]

    Reposting a few pictures - I didn't copy the pictures that were not supposed to be copied because of the copyright - which I hope you had permission to do if they aren't your own work. Photographers get VERY possessive about that.

    I made it to the end of page 4, but not before my eyes glazed over by the end of page 3.

    Those are some very impressive time pieces. But I guess I just don't "get it". Well, I should say I "get it" as pieces of art; but, I don't understand the purpose of making watches overly complicated for the sake of it.

    Watches with Ultra Complications manufactured by the Haute Horology(ie) companies have a common theme. In the race to create ever different and more complicated watches they have forgotten that watches are used to tell time. Most of those watches seem designed to make the simple task of telling time at a glance very difficult.

    Plus send the cost of service and repair out of sight.

    I love the Antiqua, and the Trio too. Probably the best high end steampunk watches ever. Did you get a chance to see what he was wearing?

    I think it may have been the Antiqua, the Classic is the only one I like, the rest
    are really up there on my, ugly watch list.
