Don’t expect anything from IWC but Portuguese. And the reason is the 75th anniversary of the brand’s success – without any chance left for the Ingenieur or any other collection to have a glimpse of attention!
It’s again a world record. It’s again, a ultra-thin caliber. And it’s again, signed Piaget. But this time, it’s a complicated watch : a chronograph.
The announcement could have been missed if it was not Piaget : it’s not again a ultra-thin movement, it’s the first chronograph in Piaget’s collection, ever, amongts the 37 calibers developed by the manufacture, including 25 ultra-thin – and numerous world records.
Panerai is often compared with Rolex. The two brands have many similarities, with rather simple products, faithful to their original models, a design that never changes, very clear collections and a very powerful club of passionate fans around the world – in Panerai’s case called the Paneristis.
This new high jewelry tourbillon takes all of its cues from the swirling form of a twisting spiral, a shape expressed in many organic forms in the natural environment.
The Swiss fascination with the art of fine horology is well known, yet there is an equally age-old Swiss tradition regarding the creation of mimetic mechanical objects of art that imitate nature, thus blurring the dividing lines between artistic creativity and life itself.
Hublot presents the first tourbillon in the new Big Bang line. With its new case (unveiled in 2013), the watch features a skeleton movement and an added power reserve indicator function on the dial side.
The first major horological event of the year kicks off Monday January 19 at Palexpo in Geneva. The Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) is celebrating its quarter century this year. It started in 1991, when exhibitors took the decision to stage an exclusive fair, reserved for watchmaking professionals.
Fans of CLERC will be happy to note that we have secured an appointment with the brand at SIHH next week. Of course on show will be the CLERC Hydroscaph collection – described by the brand as the most powerful Swiss luxury dive watches ever created, but also combined with fun a technical prowess.
Those two much treasured words ‘Swiss Made’ are about to become a cost which for some manufactures may be too much to bear. Yesterday the Swiss National Bank removed the minimum exchange rate on the Swiss Franc. This could see the Swiss Franc rise by 30% or more against the Euro and the Dollar, making the cost of exports ruinously uncompetitive.
If you are not one of those who are helping to put the ‘Rich’ in Richemont, then the glittering haute horology fest that is next week’s SIHH will hold little for you save to gaze through the cold and frosty glass of your computer screen as the great and good get to try on all the latest dazzling and priceless novelties.
