"I'm really inspired by the environment around me," Rexhepi says. "I get ideas when I see shapes, especially when I travel." Rexhepi references a trip he and Teresa took to Rome a couple years ago, where he was inspired by the architecture of old buildings, churches, even the shapes of windows and doors. At this point, Teresa jumps in to confirm that yes, Rexhepi really does pause mid-stroll, taking out his phone to draw shapes he sees, connecting them to a gear or wheel on a movement, and that yes, it can be terribly annoying. Rexhepi says he'll also take inspiration from cars, clothes, flea markets, or the items that Teresa sells at her vintage boutique in Geneva.

And, being a Sumo, the SFK001/003 are large watches. I might even argue very large by today's standards. If you have the wrist and the taste for a 45mm dive watch, the Sumo variety is definitely worth a look, but I doubt I'm alone in saying that I'd love to see this movement in some of the brand's smaller cases, like the 40.5mm case from the SPB143 (he said, surprising less than no one).
According to Hines, it seems that the regulating arm and the snail cam allow for regulation of the hairspring: the regulating arm can be directly adjusted for larger adjustments, while the snail cam allows for the micro-adjustment to 1/10th of a second that Omega's touting, allowing for regulation to 0/+2 per day. When you adjust the attachment point of the Spirate System's tail on the balance bridge, the tail pushes or pulls on the flexible blade, adding or removing tension. Since the blade is attached to the hairspring, this then acts on the hairspring. For example, pushing on the blade by adjusting the tail's attachment point closer will increase tension in the blade, then causing the hairspring to increase in stiffness, causing it to beat faster.

Bruce Wayne, aka Batman (dont tell anybody that secret, okay), is a person just like the rest of us. This means, just like you, he has a birthday, and in honor of his upcoming b-day, WB Games is advertising a big sale onGotham Knights. You know, the game where Batman dies in the first 20 minutes and you dont actually play as him at all. Huh.
If you are wondering: Batman/Bruce Waynes in-universe birthday is officially February 19. Or is it? If you do even a light amount of internet searching, youll quickly discover that there have been a few different dates given for the superheros b-day, including days in April, June, and October. However, in recent years, DC and Warner Bros seem to have settled on February 19 as the real and official birthday of Gothams caped crusader. Bats must be bummed that hes down to one birthday again; he was probably drowning in parties and presents for a while there.
Roger Federer has announced the launch of the new Wilson ProStaff V14 racket. Federer, a former 20-time Grand Slam champion, has been Wilson's brand ambassador since 1998. Together, Federer and Wilson created many beautiful memories. Now, Federer is guaranteeing that Wilson's new ProStaff V14 racket won't disappoint. "Wilson has a new ProStaff coming out the V14 and for the first time in quite some time now I won’t be the one playing or debuting it on the tour which is obviously unfortunate.
But you’ll see it in the hands of really some great other players from both the ATP and WTA tour in 2023 and beyond. The precision is still at the absolute top of the game and I know you’ll get as much joy out of the new version as with all the ProStaffs I played to date really," Federer said in a video posted on Wilson's Instagram account.

Russlands Präsident Wladimir Putin und der belarussische Staatschef Alexander Lukaschenko haben in Moskau über die Zusammenarbeit beider Länder in Wirtschafts- und Sicherheitsfragen gesprochen. Dabei unterstrich Lukaschenko nach russischen Agenturberichten die technologische Kooperation der zwei verbündeten, aber international isolierten Nachbarstaaten. Sie lasse die Sanktionen ins Leere laufen, die wegen des russischen Angriffs auf die Ukraine verhängt worden sind, behauptete er.
Die Länder des Westens hätten Russland und Belarus nicht um ihr Potenzial in der Computertechnologie gebracht, sagte Lukaschenko bei dem Treffen in Putins Residenz Nowo-Ogarjowo. Auch produziere Belarus jetzt schon etwa 1.000 Bauteile für die zivilen russischen Flugzeuge MS-21 und Suchoi Superjet. Sein Land sei mit etwas russischer Hilfe auch in der Lage, Erdkampfflugzeuge herzustellen, sagte Lukaschenko. Solche Maschinen dienen der Unterstützung eigener Infanterie-Einheiten und können gegnerische Ziele am Boden angreifen.
