Louis Moinet’s Mecanograph watch has achieved third place in the Classic watch category of the 2013 International Chronometry Competition for 2013. The competition is organised biennially by the International Chronometry Competition Association under the supervision of the Musée d’Horlogerie in Le Locle and in partnership with the Swiss Chronometer Control Office (COSC), the Besançon Observatory (France) and the Haute École Arc engineering college in Le Locle (Switzerland).
Last week I attended the Speedy Tuesday VIP event at Space Expo in Noordwijk, The Netherlands.
My first thought was "Oh Boy..", my second thought was "Wow, Gorgeous!". My third thought was "what price would they be?", and finally "Can I afford?" I'm sure you will have your own thoughts, so please allow me to introduce to you the new Clifton Chronographs:
Established in 1995, BUBEN&ZORWEG have established themselves as the outstanding luxury storage provider to the professional watch collector. Whether you wish to securely store a dozen watches, or a thousand, there is a luxury solution from this Austrian company.
Baume & Mercier has released two new ladies models. The two watches are designed to be enjoyed as pieces of jewellery as well as fine timepieces. The look is inspired by Baume & Mercier’s back catalogue of 1950s modles, but the Linea range has been steadily reinventing itself since it was launched in 1987.
Chrono 24, who claim to be the world’s most popular online marketplace for high quality luxury watches, is organising the world's first auction selling tourbillon timepieces with a total worth of two million Euros. The auction is organised in partnership with online art and auction house Auctionata, and it’s likely to be one of the most exciting auctions in the luxury watch industry.
If you thought Hermes was all about silk scarves and costly leather accessories, think again. They are equally well known for creating impeccably fine watches. The Cape Cod GMT is a good example. An ideal travel watch it’s equipped with a mechanical self-winding movement with a power reserve of 42 hours.
Further to Ernie’s report on Romain Jerome winning the best watch advertising award campaign for 2013, OMEGA has scooped the award from the same show in the Cyber & Films category. Yes, not content to win awards purely for superlative watchmaking, many Swiss manufactures also vie to win awards for the advertising that promotes their products.
For the first time, independent Swiss watchmaker Raymond Weil is offering a ladies watch in a sleek all black PVD casing. The watch is studded with 86 black diamonds and offers a glimpse of the automatic movement thanks to an aperture in the dial at 12 o'clock. The shagreen-imitation calf leather strap adds to the elegance of the timepiece. Raymond Weil describe it as an ultra feminine watch; a fusion of horological know how, with an off-beat urban look.
Ulysse Nardin inscribed his name in the annals of the merchant navy during the second half of the 19th century. His marine chronometers became world-renowned measuring instruments, and were used on many ships.
