Quantum Solace Seamaster Planet Ocean by Omega

The upcoming James Bond movie, Quantum of Solace, will feature a new limited edition Omega Seamaster. The Limited Edition Seamaster Planet Ocean (pictured) will be available in a limited number of 5,000 pieces. The watch features a polished and brushed stainless steel case and bracelet with a self-winding movement. The watch is capable of withstanding water pressure down to a respectable 600 meters assisted by a helium escape valve. The Quantum Solace logo is imprinted on the sapphire crystal, very cool if you are a collector I guess. One other notable design element is the textured black dial which was inspired by the grip of a Walther PPK, 007's weapon of choice.

Pagani Zonda F Chrono by CVSTOS

[ Cvstos ] I like the collaboration between Cvstos and Pagani. The end result is a very pleasing design. The Cvstos Pagani Zonda F Chrono is made of a high grade 5 titanium with double sapphire dials. The crown and push pieces feature the same design theme as the car. The rotor was made to replicate the wheel of a Pagani roadster, and of course, is visible through the sapphire crystal caseback. A leather strap provides the finishing touch for this ultra sporty timepiece. The Pagani Zonda F Supercar costs close to...

LOUIS MOINET Vertalis Tourbillon

[ via SwissTime ] Louis Moinet is proud to present what many experts already consider to be one of the world's finest tourbillons. The unique VERTALIS model features an innovative aesthetic concept distinguished by a modern and original blend of technology and design. As its name implies, the difference here is all about verticality: VERTALIS intensifies the magic of the tourbillon by connecting its carriage to the barrel by means of a hand-drawn and bevelled vertical bar. To add to the fascinating vision of the tourbillon carriage in motion, VERTALIS offers an openworked version of the barrel. The latter's cover performs an average rotation in 6 hours and enables one to keep visual check on the power reserve according to the state of wind of the barrel spring. Louis Moinet displays its determination to combine aesthetic and technical aspects,
