    You learn something new every day. Apparently Montres duManège is the only Swiss brand of watches to display the name La Chaux-de-Fonds on its dials. Now the brand is launching a timepiece in the lounge of the Hotel Ramada, on the plaza in front of Baselworld.

    The market launch of the DM-Exploration Silver Edition reinforces some of those unique and inspiring values derived from a specific urban setting and relationship with one of the historical cradles of top-drawer watchmaking. This is a city where even the construction of the houses was done according to the lighting needs of the watchmakers who worked inside them.

    The case is composed of nine steel or ceramic components, and is 44.5mm, and water-resistant to 50 meters. The DM-Exploration Silver Edition highlights the case's curves by alternating satin-brushed surfaces with polished beveled edges.

    The automatic mechanical caliber was produced by one of the top movement builders of the region, the company Technotime in Brenets. It has a power reserve of 120 hours, which is indicated by a hand, it has two barrels and a module for the date, also indicated by a hand. The oscillating weight and the finishings have been given some subtle and elegant customization touches, in order to demonstrate that a young, creative designer is at the origin of the DM-Exploration Collection.

    The power reserve indicator is located at 11 o'clock, the calendar with hand dates is at 7.30. It's an unusual arrangement but it has a functional reason: the caliber was mounted into the case backward to allow the winding crown on the left of the watch, a trend that is popular with some of the major brands. Its purpose is to protect shirtsleeves made of delicate material.

    Aficionados refer to the DM-Exploration Silver Edition as a "watchmaker's watch," because it is liable to kindle admiration among the industry’s big players. Others will also feel a spontaneous desire to actually own one.

    A nine day power reserve is truly impressive. I'll be checking these guys out this week for sure.

    It has 5-day PR, and while it is an impressive movement, it is a standard Technotime movement used by other brands as well.
