The Chopard Group has added an illustrious new brand to its portfolio: La Chronométrie FERDINAND BERTHOUD SA. Chopard co-president Karl-Friedrich Scheufele intends to bring back to life the memory of Ferdinand Berthoud and restore this substantial watchmaking legacy to its rightful status.
Gravity, starring George Clooney and Sandra Bullock, has been one of the smash hit movies of 2013. The 3-D thriller centres around Dr. Ryan Stone, played by Bullock, a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (Clooney). But on a seemingly routine spacewalk, disaster strikes.
Ahh, the holiday season is upon us! Snow and tinsel, dreidels and Sufganiyot’s, Yule logs and meditation; whatever you do to celebrate this time of year, it brings you close to friends and loved ones. Many people spend the time reminiscing over the past year and looking forward to the next. One thing that I look forward to is the next season of carnivals and fairs! (I know, that’s random. But for the sake of the segway, just go with it)
Movado Group owned Concord Watches have created a watch dedicated to the phenomenal rise of underground techno-music. Called the C2 Teknologic, it’s an up-to-the-minute grey PVD treated 43mm stainless steel watch powered by a mechanical, self-winding movement. The silver-toned dial glows with electric green LED lookalike superluminova, while vertical Côtes de Genève and the brand name CONCORD takes centre stage.
There’s a new Certina DS (Double Safety) Podium Chronograph from Swatch owned brand Certina. The case is in stainless steel with black steel PVD pushers, measures 42mm x 13mm. The bezel has a tachymetric scale. It has an AR-coated sapphire crystal, a display back and it is water resistant to 100 metres. The watch has sub dials at 12 and 6 and 9 o'clock as well as numerals at 3 and 9 o'clock.
One of the newest Breitling watches, known as the Super Avenger Military, is a mighty, macho limited edition of 500 pieces. It’s built for stealth, with a non-reflective finish on an imposing 48-mm case and a “volcano black” dial featuring a 24-hour military time display with white Arabic numerals.
Incredibly, it’s 100 years since Seiko introduced its first wrist watch known as The Laurel. However, it’s clear that in the past 100 years Seiko have not rested on their laurels. Seiko President at the time Kintaro Hattori was determined that Seiko would always be “one step ahead of the rest”, and largely it has proven to be the case.
Last week I missed the Gavox event near Bruxelles Belgium, organized by Michael Happé, founder, owner and watchmaker of Gavox Watch Co.
As any JLC fan will know, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso was originally developed in the 1930s to enable British colonial officers to play polo without fear of breaking their expensive wrist watches while at play. As the name suggests, the watch was able to swivel round so that it was protected from any potential harm.
As Christmas draws ever closer it’s time to decide what you dream about versus what is genuinely affordable, and the new Powermatic80 series from Tissot could be a worthy contender for a happy compromise. Earlier this year Tissot introduced the Powermatic80 series which features a record-setting power reserve of 80 hours.
