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.
13.8 billion years ago, give or take 37 million years, something remarkable happened. An intensely dense ball of quarks, leptons, and gauge bosons underwent a massively rapid period of expansion forming quark-gluon plasma (with other bits floating around). I’m sure everyone is familiar with quark-gluon plasma by now so I won’t bore you with the 1st grade science lesson (yeah, right!). This plasma then quickly cooled allowing the quarks to bind together with the help of their little friends, the gluons. This new combination is what we know as protons and neutrons, named differently based on their charges. These combined further via the strong nuclear force to create atomic nuclei, and the lepton particles named “electrons” hung around for some fun. Other particles that were left over did some crazy stuff too including a guy named the Higgs Boson who basically made all the particles that interacted with it feel heavy. Like, really heavy. He gave them mass, and he gave it completely for free because he was a nice guy. Come to think of it, I may have met him the other day at Cool Burger Town. He must have taken my order because that guy gave me free refills on my Coke! Yeah, it must have been that Higgs guy.
Speaking as we were in today’s article about the achievements of Jean-Claude Biver, Swatch Group brand Blancpain, which Biver revived in the 1980’s, has produced a watch as part of the Le Brassus collection, which is distinguished by 3 complications exclusive to Blancpain. The carrousel, a mechanism revived and revamped by Blancpain in 2008, is represented in this model by its one-minute flying carrousel.
Jean-Claude Biver, Chairman of Swiss luxury watch brand Hublot, recently travelled to Tokyo, Japan for an appearance at the 15th Nikkei Global Management Forum on October 21, 2013. As a guest speaker invited to the international Forum for the second time, Biver exchanged views on management philosophies and business visions with IMD President Dr. Dominique Turpin on the forum’s underlying theme, “Management Strategies for the Next Great Stride: The Essential Requisites of a Leader.”
Hublot celebrates Mexico with an exclusive Ferrari-Stamped Hublot watch, which Hublot believes is destined to become a collector’s item. Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO of Hublot, unveiled the new watch in the company of Ferrari and Hublot owners and fans at the Ferrari Mexico City Showroom in collaboration with Hublot Mexican long-term partner and friend Berger.
