aBlogtoWatch: I find a lot of people with a technical background like you gravitate towards Omega's technological innovations, which are manifold and continue to break ground.
To be honest, I am not sure if this is the Greubel Forsey Art Piece 1 or perhaps the Art Piece 1.2, etc... There have been few more mysterious ultra luxury watches released from legitimate brands than the Art Piece collection from everyone's favorite metal finishing fanatics over in Switzerland. I am told that the first Art Piece watch was finally delivered this summer in 2014. This is after the watch's "debut" in 2012. What you see here hands-on isn't even a finished model, but rather a prototype.
According to Gustafsson & Sjogren, the watchmaker/bladesmith combo team out of Sweden, the Bifrost represents their first dress watch collection. I sort of have to disagree with that premise, as many of their other watches could have easily seen dress watch duty (depending on your style). A good example is the superlative Gustafsson & Sjogren Winter Nights watches (hands-on here) that combine a lot of design and watchmaking nerd appeal.
