“The UR-210 represents a serious accomplishment for URWERK. This timepiece opens a new chapter in the evolution of our complications. It doesn't just measure a universal value in a completely original way, but starts a real dialogue between the watch and its wearer. The UR-210 indicates your personal activity; this is yours and nobody else’s.” - Felix Baumgartner, Urwerk Co-Founder and Watchmaker
Famed Swiss watchmaker Jorg Hysek poses the question can a timepiece be both beautiful and technical? And then contends that the Maison’s new Abyss is ample proof of it. The new Abyss Automatic Tourbillon is designed to reveal its in-house calibre, at the same time as showing off highly accomplished detailing. With this twofold appearance, the watch appeals both to those who admire aesthetics and to connoisseurs of Haute Horlogerie mechanical movements.

I am back from Baselworld with some interesting news from Laco. Met up with Andreas Günther an his team yesterday and they were proud to announce three new models which are not to be found on the Laco online shop yet.

Astron GPS Solar was launched with caliber 7X in 2012. In 2014, the collection was expanded with a second-generation caliber, 8X, featuring a chronograph. In 2015, the Astron revolution continues apace with the addition of a third caliber, designed specifically for the global traveler.
Inspired by a mainly medical timepiece from the early 1920s, the Longines Pulsometer Chronograph measures the number of heartbeats, in addition to the time. The original model of this reissue was used as an instrument by the medical profession to calculate a patient's heart rate reliably and quickly. The white lacquered dial is adorned with painted black Arabic numerals which subtly enhance "Breguet"-type blued steel hands, while the red of the pulsometric scale stands out in perfect refinement.
