Swiss Montblanc introduced a pair of new world-time watches in its TimeWalker collection, called Montblanc Timewalker World-Time Hemispheres, at SIHH 2013. Each of the watches has a dial with a world-map motif as seen from the poles — one for the northern hemisphere, one for the southern.
Emile Chouriet new website in three languages (French, English and Chinese) was launched early September. It offers visitors a new way of exploring the products and experience the passion that has fuelled the brand since 1998.
Every watch collection has its own section with in-depth detail and a moodboard. The juxtaposition of images is a creative tool that’s used as visual inspiration to define and showcase a watch collection’s style.
Every year Baume & Mercier release an emblematic limited edition that speaks to the brand’s 185-year history and legacy. This year, they’re celebrating with something unusual – a beautiful and complicated pocket watch. This red gold Clifton 1830 features an unusual five-minute repeater, which strikes the time to the nearest five minutes when you operate the slide at five o’clock. The prettily finished movement is powered by a Dubois Depraz module, which is shown off behind the sapphire caseback.
The Christophe Claret Maestro is visually very similar to the style we have become used to from the brand over the the last few years, a technical and architectural piece of modern horology, however still relying on traditional codes of Swiss watchmaking. In the Maestro we can find design cues from the Soprano (Minute Repeater Tourbillon), the Allegro (Minute Repeater) and the Maestoso (Constant Force).
With the new Lady Serenade models, Glashütte Original develops the play of opposites: light and dark, matte and polished surfaces, clean lines and playful details.
Crafted by the manufactory's own dial-makers in Pforzheim, the deep black dials are enhanced with a sun-burst decoration and then coated in a galvanic bath. They are framed by finely worked 36 mm cases in stainless steel or warm rose gold.
