My own thoughts included in articles over the last year was that small watches were not what the consumer in the West wanted. I proposed that the quickly evolving Chinese consumer would adapt to Western-sized watches quickly, and that fashion pressure (if even relied upon by consumers), would not be a force to get people en masse to want smaller timepieces. The under 30mm wide Ralph Lauren Slim Classique Square from past year was penned as a men's watch that women could also wear. 38mm wide watches were common, and it looked like 44mm wide plus watches were gonna be stigmatized.
Inside the DA44 is a Damasko regulated Swiss ETA 2836 automatic movement. Pictures I saw of it in the watch reveal that it is quite nicely decorated. The watch has the day/date indicators on the dial, and thankfully Damasko uses black discs for those indicators. Attached to the case is a form-fitted leather strap with red stitching or a rubber strap. Really a nice little collection of watches from Damasko and a steal at ,490 in steel and ,590 in black-coated steel. You can get them online from Gnomon Watches here.
So, who else has done this? A few people, but this is probably the least expensive timepiece I know that has this type of power reserve complication. The other watch I am thinking of that has one is the Jean Dunand Tourbillon Orbital. According to Van Cleef & Arpels, they are very proud to have worked with (none other than) Jean-Marc Wiederrecht in the creation of this complication.
Limited to 104 pieces the Hublot Niemeyer watch is in tantalum (don't ask why the caseback says "tantalum" as well as "titanium"). In the Aero Bang collection, it has a skeletonized dial and overall black/gray style. I do really like the "lemon and lime" colors of the hands and hour markers. Good for Brazil, or 7-Up.
