Full movement shot of the Eccentricity by @cyril_brivet_naudot: A debut watch with exceptional details. Note the bespoke screws holding the caseback bezel, a design echoed in the gear train wheels, escape wheel and the chrome escutcheon with the cut out for the key that allows for changing the time. The movement itself uses only finger bridges, and has some negative space to perhaps allow for some embellishment on the top plate. For technical details of the watch's tour de force, its escapement, and the unique time display, I would suggest reading pieces written by SJX for @sjxwatches and @nmanousos for @hodinkee.
Very excited to see the new creation from @cyril_brivet_naudot. Here's a detail of the Eccentricity's movement, his first watch, photographed at Salon QP last November. Lighting was perfectly set up to highlight the contrast between the gear train wheels and bridges holding them in place, a contrast that is lost in many images I've seen with far too much artificial light thrown on the movement.

@cyril_brivet_naudot has produced a beautiful piece of watchmaking sans CNC. Fine details are present everywhere in the Eccentricty, even on the lugs: two screws to attach each of the lugs to the case; one screw at the strap end of the lug that is inserted into the end of the springbar. Photographed at Salon QP, November 2018. Movement pics coming soon.
Our popular watch Valencia Steel is hot in demand. ❤️❤️ #rayiewatches

You are looking at a piece of an iron meteorite discovered in 1931 at the Henbury crater field in the Northern Territory of Australia. Rare? This fragment costs CHF25,000. One watch dial can be crafted from it.
If you follow watch sites and blogs ; ) chances are you've recently seen this Prestige HMS Stainless Steel watch from Romain Gauthier. Presented to us at SIHH 2019, it is now being shown at Watches and Wonders Miami.
HMS stands for hours, minutes, seconds, read on 2 subdials with blackened steel hands. Hour-minute hands, and the white gold applique hour markers, are filled with Super-Luminova.
And to set the time? The flat crown is on the back, wide enough to easily wind even while wearing the watch.
The finished unique iron meteorite dial measures 33 mm x just 0.8 mm thick, as shown on the following slides.
This 10-piece limited edition is also the brand's first series watch in stainless steel. In-house Calibre 2206 HMS with a 60-hour power reserve is visible through the transparent back of the 43mm case.
As always with Romain Gauthier all is superbly finished by hand.
