In Escape Plan, Sylvester Stallone’s second to latest cinematic outing, he joins forces with one time arch rival Arnold Schwarzenegger to try and bust out of a practically escape proof jail.
It's been on sale since October, and Christopher Ward describe this moody black pilot’s watch as their most technically sophisticated aviation model yet. It’s inspired by the FGR4 Typhoon fighter jet, the RAF's multi-role combat fighter.
Geneva based Breva Watches, founded by 37 year old entrepreneur Vincent Dupontreué, has recently launched the Breva Génie 02 Terre, a 100% Swiss made mechanical timepiece with a fully functional, high-performance mechanical altimeter. Not for the first time, Breva Watches is a brand founded out of a desire to have a watch created to the owner’s exacting specifications.
88 Rue Du Rhone, the watch brand founded by Elie and Pierre Bernheim, has been appointed as the Official Watch and Timing Partner of the BAFTA Awards for the second year in a row.
The horology has been very ‘haute’ all week due to SIHH 2014; all openworked tourbillons, skeletonised movements, and fancy rattrapantes. Sometimes it’s nice to talk about a watch you can actually afford, and which isn’t limited to just ten pieces. We’re talking of course, about G-SHOCK.
For SIHH 2014, Van Cleef & Arpels revisited the idea of a three-dimensional representation of the solar system and the movement of the planets around the sun in order to realise the Midnight Planétarium. This timepiece also offers a means of immortalising one’s own lucky day in the universe, while admiring the course of the planets.
While you are doubtless still marvelling at the horological fireworks on display at SIHH 2014, the brands are starting to roll out their pre-Baselworld collections. Alpina will be showing the new Startimer Pilot Blackstar automatic chronograph from its professional pilot series.
The art of openworking (ajourées) is the key theme for Vacheron Constantin at SIHH 2014, and we have covered the immense intricacies of the procedure in earlier posts. This particular series from Vacheron’s Métiers d’Art collection is based on one of the stellar in-house movements, Calibre 4400.
The Patrimony Traditionnelle 14-day tourbillon openworked model combines the tourbillon complication with the art of openworking, both of which were born at the dawn of the 19th century.
In 1912, seeking to make a clean break with the rounded shapes of pocket watches Vacheron Constantin became one of the first watch manufacturers to offer barrel-shaped or ‘tonneau’ cases. This shape was immediately of widely appeal to both men and women. Over the past century, it has come to be associated with the most prestigious horological complications, as notably interpreted in the Maltecollection.
