The First Hybrid Mechanical Smartwatch | KAIROS Baselworld 2015
Kairos (καιρός) is an ancient Greek word meaning the right or opportune moment (the supreme moment)
Kairos Watches is the world’s first and only mechanical smart watch hybrid.
It combines the centuries old traditional watch making heritage with the latest in 21st century wearable technology. Each product from Kairos consists of a fully automatic movement (Miyota 82S7 Japanese Movement for MSW115 and Soprod A10BV-2 Swiss Movement for SSW158) which is infused with a revolutionary new display called TOLED (Transparent Organic Light Emitting Diode) display. It is powered by an 180mAh battery which also powers the on board control unit with Bluetooth that communicates with a companion device (smart phone / tablet). The operating system includes a choice of Kairos OS – which provides the most essential features and functions while conserving battery (5-7 days), or Android Wear OS which provides more app-related functions but with less battery power (2 days).
The mechanical movements are rated 42 Hour Power Reserve for both models. The watch itself is rated 3ATM for water resistance.
Branded as the world’s first mechanical-smartwatch hybrid, the Kairos is unlike anything we’ve ever seen in timepieces. Featuring, self-winding watch movements and a transparent OLED display, the watch blends both tech and fashion…
The Kairos smartwatch is a fully-functioning mechanical watch that features a secondary see-through screen within the same casing. The transparent TOLED display delivers notifications and other data, while still allowing you to see the watch hands beneath when nothing else is happening.
It will work with iOS, Android and Windows Phone devices and an accompanying app will push the notifications to your wrist, while also offering camera functions and music playback. Activity and sleep tracking is powered by Misfit and the battery is claimed to last between two and three days.
Kairos watches are half mechanical timepiece, half OLED smartwatch

The Kairos Family
Rolex presents new versions of its quintessential Oyster Perpetual model, introducing an entirely new 39 mm size as well as exclusive new dials for the 26, 31 and 34 mm sizes. These new versions join the 31 and 36 mm Oyster Perpetuals unveiled in 2014, creating an entire family of different sizes and attractive dial colours for a model that affords full access to the Rolex legend. The red grape colour is available in each of the sizes – 26, 31, 34, 36 and 39 mm, providing a common thread throughout the family.
The Oyster Perpetual is the purest expression of the Oyster concept, having no other function than a reliable and accurate time display. This watch is the direct descendant of the original Oyster launched in 1926, the first waterproof wristwatch in the world and the foundation on which Rolex has built its reputation. It comprises the renowned Rolex waterproof Oyster case and Manufacture mechanical self‑winding Perpetual movement. An officially certified chronometer, the Oyster Perpetual is endowed with all the fundamental attributes of the Oyster collection. This timeless model stands out with its eye-catching new dials in elegant and sporty colours.
The Oyster Perpetual’s Oyster case, guaranteed waterproof to a depth of 100 metres (330 feet), is a paragon of robustness and reliability. The characteristically shaped middle case is crafted from a solid block of particularly corrosion-resistant 904L steel. The fluted case back is hermetically screwed down with a special tool that allows only Rolex watchmakers to access the movement. The winding crown, fitted with the Twinlock double waterproofness system, screws down securely against the case. The crystal is made of virtually scratchproof sapphire. The waterproof Oyster case provides optimal protection for the high-precision movement.
The Oyster Perpetual is paired with a solid-link 904L steel Oyster bracelet, which is very secure and comfortable to wear. It is equipped with a folding Oysterclasp, designed by Rolex.
CRISTIANO RONALDO’S SPECIAL EDITION: TAG HEUER FORMULA 1 42 MM
The green flange, matching the hands and the indices, strikes a bold note against the black chequered dial. The white TAG Heuer and CR7 logos add a necessary hint of brightness which catches the eye. The perfectly matching green and black NATO strap is an integral part of the design of this chronograph, sporting its colours in style. Directly inspired by the nylon straps used by the British Army during the Second world War, it is ultra-resilient and sits perfectly on any wrist. To ensure impeccable quality, the keepers, buckle and pin are made from 316L stainless steel and both the ends of the strap and the buckle holes are laser-cut, with "TAG Heuer" hot-stamped underneath.
The completely black bezel, coated with titanium carbide, bears the chronograph's tachymeter scale. Taking the form of a large ring, it gives this piece real impact, and a resolutely sporty look.
The chronograph is accurate to a tenth of a second, with the indication displayed by a small counter at 6 o'clock. The small counter at 9 o'clock displays the chronograph minutes, and the counter at 3 o'clock is for the current seconds. These three small counters are snailed, with their intense, elegant black set against the black chequered finish of the large dial.
The OMEGA Speedmaster White Side of the Moon is an innovative timepiece that is inspired by the radiance of the Moon as seen from Earth. Crafted from solid white ceramic, it underscores the brand’s commitment to innovative creations and unique and advanced production processes. The Speedmaster White Side of the Moon rounds off OMEGA’s collection of ceramic timepieces which includes the Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon and the Speedmaster Grey Side of the Moon.
In anticipation of SPECTRE the 24th James Bond film scheduled to release in 2015, OMEGA has created a limited edition Seamaster Aqua Terra 150M model inspired by the Bond family coat of arms.
The symbol is repeatedly interlocked to create a dynamic pattern on the watch’s blue dial. The coat of arms is also found near the tip of the yellow central seconds hand.
Among the most striking elements of this 41.5 mm stainless steel timepiece is the oscillating weight of the movement visible through the sapphire crystal caseback. This component has been cut and shaped to resemble a gun barrel, a design feature associated with James Bond.
Powered by the completely new OMEGA Master Co-Axial calibre 8507, this timepiece is resistant to magnetic fields greater than 15,007 gauss.
The timepiece is presented on a stainless steel bracelet and will be produced in an edition limited to 15,007 pieces. It is delivered with a full four-year warranty.
The North Flag is a new timepiece within Tudor’s lineup. Like most of their timepieces, it’s inspired by the past. From the Ranger/Explorer-style case and dial to the integrated bracelet (a la Rolex Oyster Quartz reference 1530), there are multiple Tudor and Rolex cues.
The Frequential One F-110 is powered by caliber MCT-F1.0 which consists of 279 components, 33 jewels double mainspring barrels and hand chamfered bridges with “Côtes de Genève finishing. The main plate features circular graining on the movement side, and Côtes de Genève finishing on the dial side. Both the bridges and the manipulate feature a black rhodium treatment.
