It must be refreshing to work in the environment of watchmaker Laurent Ferrier. Whereas these days everything is rush, rush, rush, and there’s never enough time to do things properly so that time has to be found to do them again, and again, Laurent Ferrier insists on taking the time to do things properly the first time around.
Right from the founding of the brand in the mid 1970’s, Raymond Weil used music as his inspiration for his watch concepts, and it is an indelible part of the brands’ DNA. Now the legacy continues with the first RAYMOND WEIL Music Day to be held this June.

This year is the centenary of the outbreak of World War I. Amid all the media overload that reflects on the Great War, I hold on to one nugget of genuine wisdom from the trenches, passed on to me by a school master when I was nervous about taking exams, an event that was almost half as long ago as the war itself.

Stubbornly independent Oris introduced the new Big Crown ProPilot Day-Date at Baselworld 2014. It’s designed for enhanced legibility in a cockpit environment, with a larger calendar indication than earlier Oris pilots’ watches together with greater legibility on the dial with Super-LumiNova-inlaid hands, numerals and indices against a black dial.
Richard Mille’s calbre RM 63-01 Dizzy Hands turns to the inspiration of poetry, in particular the first lines of a poem entitled Le Temps, by Gérard de Nerval, from the French romantic era: Le Temps ne surprend pas le sage ; Mais du Temps le sage se rit, Car lui seul en connaît l’usage…This translates as ‘Time does not surprise the wise, but of Time the wise laughs, as only he knows how to use it.’
If you think you're Bear Grylls enough, the latest RANGEMAN in the GW-9400 series is a robust and reliable timepiece designed and engineered to stand up to the most grueling conditions you can throw at any watch.

As recently as 2004, the company, headed by Denis Bolzli and his two sons, decided to diversify the collection by creating a range of wristwatches for the first time in its history.
