Think of Saxony watchmaking and the first name that usually comes to mind is A. Lange & Sohne. But there is another Lang in the neighbourhood, in Dresden to be precise, creating watches with equal passion and precision.
Pilot watch fans may already be familiar with Nesterov, the Russian pilot watch brand, and it is a fact that they are planning a major global expansion campaign. Nesterov was in evidence at Baselworld, alongside RFS watches, both of which are owned by a large Russian retail group.
Following a hectic, breathless month of Baselworld and its blitzkrieg of new collections and novelties (and there are still many more to show), it’s time for a brief respite to feature ‘match the watch with the shoe’.
Alpina has revived a famous sports watch first introduced in 1938. Perhaps more than any other brand, Alpina was responsible for the concept of the modern Swiss sports watch. Alpina founder Gottlieb Hauser devised a list of attributes which have shaped the concept of the sports watch of the sort we know today.
Launched at Baselworld, the new limited edition interpretation of LW’s Oktopus, last seen as the Oktopus Moonphase Tattoo, takes on an ethereal ghostly glow with the new Oktopus MoonLite.
Part of Hublot's skull series, this is a Skeleton tourbillon movement with distinct Keith Richards’ appeal. Sleek and contemporary, the ceramic-coated aluminium gives this piece a truly striking appearance.
The Tourbillon with Three Bridges, created nearly 150 years ago by Girard-Perregaux, has undergone a quantum leap in design. While the architecture and codes from which it derives its strength and originality have been preserved, the changes are in the design of the bridges, the shape of the crystal, and in the completely redesigned calibre.
On show at Baselworld 2014, the new G-Shock MTG-S1000D is an LED-infused Tough Movement, alpha Gel dampeners, MT-G Tough Solar power charging, and Multi-Band 6 atomic timekeeper, and it’s made of plated stainless steel and resin. It’s a follow-up to last year’s ‘Twisted Metal’ MTG-S1000.
After three months of boatbuilding, the Maxi Trimaran Spindrift 2 was re-launched on Wednesday, April 2 in Lorient (France) and returned to the base in La Trinité Sur Mer. The largest racing trimaran in the world, it has been optimised for the demanding North Atlantic and 24-hours crewed records and then for the solo Route du Rhum.
Louis Moinet has released the MECANOGRAPH City, a new design for the Mecanograph series of watches that perpetually beat at eight vibrations a second (28,800 vibrations per hour) with the busy action of the escapement lever with its ruby palettes releasing the slow rotation of the train wheels all entirely visible on the dial through a cut away.
