The New Watch Alert The Swatch Group couldn’t stop! As our man Jack reported on Wednesday, the Swiss watchmaking behemoth is busy suing Vortic for using the Hamilton name. Besides, this is just a pleasant little curated round-up of the week’s new watches with a soupçon of snark. OK, it’s a twelve-course meal of sarcasm and horological truth telling. Napkins in place? Here’s the first course . . .

If keeping up with the New Watch Alert series is a bit like drinking from a firehose now, imagine what it’s going to be like when I report from Watches & Wonders (the new, user-friendly Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie). The SWATCH group and Seiko won’t be there, but I will. Meanwhile, I’m here to spill the temporal beans, beginning with a very strange watch . . .
