This year Tag Heuer presented few new watches in collaboration with celebrities like David Guetta, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Cara DeLevingne. These are all quartz watches aimed towards the Millennials.
The DS-8 chronograph from Certina adds a new complication indicating the mean duration of the cycle and quarters of the moon. So as to position this function at 10 o’clock, the high-precision PrecidriveTM movement offers an original layout of the chronograph counters. While the 12-hour display appears through an aperture inside the 60-minute counter, 60-seconds timing is done by a central sweep-seconds hand.
In celebration of the 10th anniversary of Hublot’s Big Bang model, the brand is revisiting one of its most practical complications – the alarm clock. One of the oldest complications, the alarm clock function preceded even the advent of hands. The Big Bang Alarm Repeater is the fusion of two functional complications: a mechanical alarm clock and a second time zone.
It has already been reported on Watchuseek’s German Watches Forum that GUINAND Uhren will be back very soon. GUINAND set up a brief statement on their transitional web site informing the public that Guinand will continue to exist. Together with the previous shareholders it was decided that Guinand passes into new hands and continues to be located in Frankfurt am Main/Germany.
G-Shock in 2015 is evolving itself into a mid-priced range brand with use of new materials and technology. Classic G-Shocks are still base for the collection, but the brand is most definitely evolving this year.
Italo Fontana, founder of Italian brand U-Boat, has unveiled Capsule at Baselworld, inspired directly by the first undersea exploration modules.
Fascinated by depth gauges made in the early 1930s, Italo designed this watch with their characteristic features in mind, from the rounded shape to the porthole windows with water pressure resistant glass to ensure that the people inside the cabin survived the dive. These spherical portholes made from strong glass were clamped to the outside surface of the capsule using a system of levers to ensure water resistance.
2015 marks the 130th anniversary of SAINT HONORE, and to celebrate the occasion the Paris based brand has brought out a limited series of watches that encapsulate the brand's history.
Music has always inspired family-owned Raymond Weil for mould-breaking timepieces. The latest offering from the music-loving watchmaker celebrates the one-and-only Gibson guitar, an icon of modern music played by the greatest rock, jazz and blues musicians, from Eric Clapton to U2's The Edge, from Jimi Hendrix to BB King.
A visit to the Patek Philippe stand at Baselworld is always a must. In 1959, Patek Philippe’s patented Travel Time mechanism became something of a legend, and in 1996 it attained a new level of perfection. When the local time hand is moved forwards or backwards in one-hour increments, an isolator uncouples the time-zone mechanism from the main movement.
