Hublot La Clé Du Temps Watch

If you aren't familiar with the movement in the La Cle du Temps, let me explain it. It starts with a tourbillon based movement, where the tourbillon juts out of the bottom side of the watch. This is called a vertically mounted tourbillon. You can see it in the picture looking like some space age propeller. The watch dial, to tell the time, is on the upper right of the dial. The lower left of the dial is a power reserve indicator (looks like 5 days worth in the manually wound movement), and above it is the selector for speeding up for slowing down the time. This is where it gets interesting, and Hublot has clearly changed the format of the dial a bit from the previous watch. Using a crown on the left of the watch you can alter the time to run fast or run slow. A fun, but gimmicky way of "controlling time." The neat part is that the movement always retains knowledge of the correct time - so you can always switch it back to "normal" mode and the time isn't all screwed up.
When is a watch like this useful? Honestly, I am not sure it ever is above and beyond appreciating the complexity of it all. In a sense, it is a metaphor about controlling time. The name of the watch itself is the "key of time." If you can afford it, you can say that you hold the key to time - and what greater power is there than that?

Video: The Sony NGP (PSP 2) In Action

Check out this video exhibiting some of the amazing things the Sony NGR can do, as I watched this video all I could say is "WOW! That's pretty amazing!"

The PSP 2 (NGP)

Last night, Sony held an event in Tokyo to unveil a new product, I stayed up to cover this event via satellite. They introduced us to their new system called the NGP (Next Generation Portable) aka The PSP 2. Check out the specs below, it's pretty awesome if it can really do all that stuff...




The PSP2 features a high-resolution, touch-sensitive OLED screen that's larger than the original PSP screen, tilt-sensitive SIXAXIS controls, dual analog sticks, front and back-facing cameras, and a touch sensitive back panel.

Sony boasts that the new PlayStation Portable is as powerful as a PlayStation 3. The device features built-in WiFi and 3G wireless connectivity and uses an all-new form of media storage for games—no more UMD.

Here's how Sony describes it: "NGP adopts a new game medium, a small flash memory based card, dedicated for NGP software titles. Taking advantage of the flash memory feature, this innovative card can store the full software titles plus add-on game content or the game save data directly on to the card. By adopting flash memory based card, SCE will be able to provide game cards with higher capacity in the future, allowing developers to store more game data to deliver rich and immersive games."

For now, Sony is officially calling the new PlayStation Portable by its codename, Next Generation Portable or NGP. It will be out this holiday in Japan.

The Trussardi 1911 men's collection for fall-winter 2011-12 pays homage to the Maison's origins as an artisan glove manufacturer and celebrates Trussardi's one hundred years of experience in leather-making.

The collection is made exclusively of leather, which was an ambitious challenge for Milan Vukmirovic, who has been the Creative Director of the brand since 2008. Leather-working is the true nature of Trussardi that, in this case, perfectly reproduces th appearance and patterns of the most elaborate fabrics.

This collection reveals a heritage and luxury that are unparalleled in Italy.
