Exhibiting for the first time in Baselworld since its reinvention as an independent watch manufacturer, Porsche Design introduced the newest of its revamped watch collections, the 1919 Datetimer Eternity, a timepiece the brand says was inspired both by Bauhaus design and by the aesthetic codes of the legendary Porsche 356 swiss sports watch.
Baselworld 2016 officially begins tomorrow, but the press/media kick-off is today and so thus the new releases start flowing. I’m gonna start with look at the new revamped Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Watches collection, specifically the new SMPO 43.5mm “Master Chronometer” in black and orange.
Founder’s Note: When we posted the Swiss Omega Speedmaster Moonphase Chronograph Master Chronometer earlier today we were reminded of one of the real highlights of 2015; our trip to Texas to celebrate the Speedmaster. And to shake hands with George Clooney. In a year of many press trips, it was the one. The unforgettable. And it resulted in one of the longest stories we’ve ever produced. So please, put the kettle on, settle into your most comfortable chair while we fly you to the moon.
It's the Swissness at the very heart of Swiss Tissot that makes the brand such a distinguished one. The"+"in the Tissot logo is the same as the Swiss flag, symbolising the quality and the reliability that watchmakers have proudly demonstrated since 1853. The innovative brand remains in its home in Le Locle in the Swiss Jura Mountains, keeping its Swiss identity at its core.
It’s getting harder to dismiss smartwatches as a passing fad when some of the biggest names in traditional timepieces are creating their own wearable devices. One of the early innovators in the field was Pebble, the upstart that got its smartwatches on the market ahead of major companies like Apple and Samsung. Now Pebble’s CEO is making a bold prediction about the future of the connected device.
