Some of my favorite new Swiss Vacheron Constantin watches for 2018 are these two Traditionnelle Tourbillons (in 18k pink gold or platinum) as references 6000T/000R-B346 and 6000T/000P-B347. The Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Tourbillon was also on our list of the top 10 watches of SIHH 2018. If there is anything that historic Swiss Vacheron Constantin does well (in addition to their art watches), it is producing very fine tourbillons.
Swiss Jaeger-LeCoultre is expanding its Polaris collection, presented at the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie in Geneva last January, with the Polaris Geographic WT, a new model limited to 250 pieces exclusively available at Jaeger-LeCoultre boutiques.
Differently from the Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris Geographic WT Watch models presented at SIHH, the new Polaris Geographic WT does not feature a chronograph function making it possible to reduce the diameter of the case from 44 mm to 42 mm.
This Throwback Thursday we go not as far back in time as we normally would. Instead, we take a closer look at an icon of more recent making, yet an icon it is. We are talking here about the Richard Mille RM 011 Watches. Introduced in 2007, it became not only one of the pillars of the brand, but also broke the mold of high-end sports watches. Now almost a decade in existence it is time to look back at some of the most memorable versions of this watch.
An unusual site suddenly appeared over the picturesque port city of Newport, R.I. It was the sun. Fog, cold winds and periods of strong rain dominated the weather during the days leading to the yacht race held May 19 by some of the greatest competitive sailors in the world. The fog cleared and the sun appeared right before the start, leading to a spectacular day of racing.
A classic among Hublot’s classics, the Hublot Classic Fusion Watches collection nevertheless continues to push the envelope even if, when it was launched at Baselworld in 2010, five years after the audacious Big Bang, it was specifically designed to be conservative. The concept of fusion, an important idea for the company, brings contemporary materials such as ceramic and titanium to these models inspired by Hublot’s very first watches from the 1980s.
