Carl F. Bucherer Smart Simplexity

I have no idea what ‘Smart Simplexity’ is either, but I am grateful to Carl F. Bucherer for sharing details of some of their 2011 collection with me, and now – dear reader – with you too.

Check out this Carl F. Bucherer Smart Simplexity Brochure [pdf] for a peek into the Swiss manufacturer’s range, including some nice watch-geek pics of their movements.

If you still have a hankering for more on Carl F. Bucherer, there’s a handy page for that :-)  I am rather partial to their Patravi TravelTec GMT.

Ulysse Nardin Chairman Smart Phone Docking Station

Less watch news and more phone news now from Ulysse Nardin with their ‘Chairman’ smartphone and docking station solution.

The problem with ‘brand’ phones such as these (and the same holds true for phones from Tag Heuer, Armani etc) is that they’re normally, err, pretty crappy.

Thankfully, although spec-wise the Chairman also won’t set the world alight, there are some neat touches, including the custom dial display and a crown set onto the side of the case which, if I’m reading the press release correctly, you can use to actually ‘wind-up’ the phone to supply some supplemental power.

That’s pretty cool :-)

Other than that, this appears to be a fairly standard 3G phone with bluetooth and hands-free usage.  No mention of wi-fi or email connectivity thus far.

Supplied with the phone is a very funky docking station.

The one-of-a-kind creation is comprised of over 260 mechanical parts and is entirely hand assembled.

Complemented by Alcantara leather, the docking station is hand polished and available in both a natural wood and black finish.

The docking station’s phone cradle provides battery charging as well as back-up and restoring capabilities on a supplied 32 GB memory stick.

Full multimedia capabilities, including Bluetooth Connectivity are incorporated into the base station, as well as a microphone and speakers for hands free calling.

The speakers also provide high quality music playback via Bluetooth.

Storage is provided for additional phone accessories, backup drives and chargers and a European/US/UK AC/DC power adapter makes the docking station versatile for the World traveller.
