Sinn 140 St S
The chronographs of the series 140 and 142 belong to our most illustrious timepieces. They have gone down in both watchmaking and space flight history. The German physicist and astronaut Reinhard Furrer wore the 140 S with Lemania 5100 movement on his wrist during the D1 Spacelab Mission in 1985. He was therefore able to demonstrate that automatic watches can function even in a weightless environment. In 1992 the astronaut Klaus-Dietrich Flade took his 142 S along with him on the Mir-92-mission.
We have now subjected the 140 model series to further technical development. It incorporates the SINN SZ01 chronograph movement. The most striking feature of the new design is the centre-mounted jump 60-minute stopwatch hand for improved readability. The bead-blasted stainless steel case is surface-hardened with TEGIMENT Technology. This forms the base for the Black Hard Coating. The 140 St S incorporate Ar-Dehumidifying Technology to increase the functional reliability and prevent fogging.

The Girard Perregaux Tri Axial Tourbillon represents a major success for Girard-Perregaux, a historic specialist in the mastery of this precision watch mechanism. This is a new step for the Manufacture in its quest for chronometric perfection with a high-speed tourbillon on three separate axes.

Omega has been associated with James Bond movies since 1995. That year, Pierce Brosnan took over the role of James Bond and began wearing the Omega Seamaster Quartz Professional (model 2541.80.00) in the movie GoldenEye. In all later films, Brosnan wore an Omega Seamaster Professional Chronometer (model 2531.80.00). The producers wanted to update the image of the fictional “super-spy” to a more distinctly sophisticated “Euro” look.
This unique Epoxy table was a custom made birthday present. Inside there are ± 15 years of all-access / VIP / backstage / organisation festival bracelets from the biggest EDM events across the globe like Defqon, Sensation, Q-Base, Mysteryland, Tomorrowland, Energy and many others. This custom table was created by Epoxygieten, a small company that will capture anything in resin that your mind can think off. With a group of friends we came up with the idea and together with Martijn form Epoxygieten the idea was transformed into a building plan. After many weeks of hard work the table was finished in time for this special birthday.
TW Steel product photography.With a rich background in watchphotograhy I was asked to shoot this diver in the right setting for the Dutch version of Discovery Magazine.
Bijna zomer, dat betekent vakantie en op reis. Iets om het hele jaar naar uit te kijken, maar ook iets waar extra oplettendheid gevraagd wordt. We interviewen mensen die met een ongevraagd, soms levensgevaarlijk souvenir, in de vorm van een virus, thuis komen. En we bespreken het levenbedreigende nieuwe SARS-virus, dat in mei 2013 de wereld gezondheidorganisaties schokt. Een ander ongemak zijn de torenhoge rekeningen die bij terugkomst op de deurmat vallen. Vergeten je data-roaming uit te zetten? Dat kan je duur komen te staan. Maar wat is dat nou eigenlijk precies data-roaming? We nemen een kijkje achter de douanepoortjes op Schiphol. Wat vertelt jouw paspoort deze mensen? Wij weten inmiddels, dat is meer dan jij denkt. Daarnaast lees je over de gekste zomerfestivals, hoe het bloedpaspoort de wielrensport moet gaan redden en nemen we je mee in de wereld van de moderne piraterij. Discovery Magazine nr 3, 2013 is vanaf 25 juni overal verkrijgbaar!

Shot this Grönefeld One Hertz Techniek Nocturne for Fratellowacthes.com.
The One Hertz Techniek is the world’s only series wristwatch with independent dead seconds and features a stunning, open-work dial that showcases the intricate upper mechanics of Grönefeld’s own proprietary movement, the calibre G-02.With the One Hertz, Bart and Tim Grönefeld have resurrected the long-neglected complication of dead seconds – where the second hand advances in full steps of one second instead of the usual smooth sweeping action of mechanical seconds – and re-positioned it on the pedestal of high precision.The Grönefeld One Hertz is unique among wristwatches in that its dead seconds are powered by a secondary gear train, independent of the gear train for the hour and minute indications. While the One Hertz Techniek’s dial is dominated by the large dead seconds chapter ring in sapphire, the other indications, bridges and Grönefeld logo are crafted in stainless steel, which is relief engraved, bevelled and finished completely by hand.The open dial is framed by a gleaming high-tech Grade 5 titanium case available in two versions: natural polished and brushed titanium or black DLC – when the timepiece becomes the One Hertz Techniek Nocturne.Both versions feature the Grönefeld’s own ergonomic winding and setting mechanism, selected by simply pushing the crown in, rather than pulling it out.The One Hertz Techniek is a limited edition of 30 pieces in Grade 5 titanium, with either a natural finish – One Hertz Techniek – or black DLC coated – One Hertz Techniek Nocturne.

De Horlogefotograaf calendar 2013 is the third and final ‘Horlogefotograaf’ calendar. After the first edition, limited to 100 pieces, saw the daylight in 2011, I created another one for 2012 based on the same ingredients. And for 2013 I once again sourced 12 Rolex wristwatches, from friends and collectors, which were again photographed in various settings. For 2013 the design of the calendar was slightly changed. The calendar bar was made translucent, allowing the photos to cover the entire page, and getting rid of the dark stripe at the bottom. The focus always on the watches to make sure the final product is an eye-catching, poster like calendar. With the entire project in my own hands, it is a great outlet for my creativity.
The Marvin Fratellowatches Limited Edition is a fact!
As you’ve probably noticed a few weeks ago, Fratellowatches and Marvin designed a watch called the Superhero. Based on their Malton M119 collection, we designed a completely black watch with red accents and the use of Marvin’s superhero. Drawing its inspiration from an advert from the 1950s discovered in its archives; Marvin has created its superhero and showcases it in a fun-filled, exuberant fashion by launching an 88-piece limited edition every year. For the very first edition of this incredible adventure, Marvin has partnered with Fratellowatches. This Malton Cushion Superhero timepiece is combined with matching cufflinks. Marvin and Fratellowatches met each other a few times over the last couple of years during Baselworld trade shows and followed each other with great interest. The combination of an influential blog and the manufacturer of affordable luxury watches led to designing a mechanical watch with an edge, the Superhero.
The ceramic Rolex Submariner LV 50th anniversary edition. Photo shot for the Horlogefotograaf Calendar.
The Submariner model went into production in 1953 and was showcased at the Basel watch fair in 1954. The assigned case reference number of this first Submariner was either 6204 or 6205. It is unclear which model came first; in any event, the two watches are nearly identical. Neither has the distinctive “cathedral” or “Mercedes” hands now so strongly associated with the Submariner line. Throughout the next 40 years, the Submariner was updated with improved water resistance, new movements, and numerous small cosmetic changes. In 2003, Rolex celebrated the Submariner’s 50th anniversary by launching the Rolex Submariner LV anniversary edition (16610 LV), with distinguishing features such as the green bezel and Maxi dial.
