Master Compressor Extreme LAB by Jaeger-LeCoultre

This is the new Master Compressor Extreme LAB concept watch. The most innovative feature is that the watch operates without any form of lubricant. The Jaeger-LeCoultre 988C is not only lubricant-free it is also resistant to extreme temps - 40° / + 60° C. This completely redesigned movement has gone through two years of development to achieve a high-tech movement that requires no oil. It is actually capable of running smoothly for years without any wear on the parts or deterioration of its performance. This concept watch and movement actually has six patents pending and it looks great too.

MANOMETRO S by Giuliano Mazzuoli

This is a cool new watch that was introduced at Baselworld 2007 by Giuliano Mazzuoli called the Manonmetro "S". The "S" logo on the dial signifies "Sport".

This is an Italian designed timepiece powered by a Swiss movement. The case is 45.2mm in diameter and 14.8mm thick. The black rubber strap is fitted into the case and held by two screws. Since carbon fibre is porous the case is coated in with a Formula water resistant material. I love the all black design and it appears that many watch companies do to, as black watches are very popular this year.
