It is the final day of the SIHH presentation before the doors are open to the public. All eyes are on Jaeger-LeCoultre, who engineers its elegant timepieces in Le Sentier, where it was founded in 1833. Famed for its intricacy and expertise, the brand has developed over 1,200 individual calibres and holds 400 unique patents. Here we highlight our favourites.
We are headed into Day 2 of the SIHH in Geneva, and it is another full and exciting day of amazing novelties from brands like A. Lange & Söhne, Cartier, Montblanc and Vacheron Constantin. Here are our top picks.
The wait is over and the horological community turns to the highly-anticipated fine watchmaking event – the SIHH, Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie, to discover the latest releases from the world's most prestigious watch brands on the first day.
Swiss Watch Gallery presents you with a sneak preview of this year’s highlights from much sought-after brands such as A.Lange & Söhne, Audemars Piguet, Baume & Mercier, Cartier, IWC, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Montblanc, Panerai, Piaget, Roger Dubuis and Vacheron Constantin.
Given just three words to define a watch, they would undoubtedly be “case, movement, dial”. If would be difficult, if not impossible, to miss out any one of these elements. However, true innovation lies in questioning certainties and exploring brand new paths. This is exactly what Bell & Ross did when designing its new BR‑X2, where the case and movement form a single element.
The Da Vinci Perpetual Calendar Chronograph is the brand’s first watch to combine the hour and minute counters with the moon phase in a single subdial. Achieving this called for a development of the IWC-manufactured 89630 calibre. A silver-plated or gold-plated disc depicts the full moon in all its glory. At the same time, the rounded, dark blue section of the disc – representing the earth’s shadow – rotates to show the waxing or waning moon.
Bell & Ross has a passion for the military world and its codes. Since its inception, the watch company has considered those who serve in the military to be heroes. The brand shares the values of performance and excellence with these men and women and has enlisted their expertise to develop timepieces with optimal functionality.
Bell & Ross —the official partner of the Renault Sport Formula One™ Team since their return to Formula One last year, as a constructor— unveils its newest timepiece: the BR126 Renault Sport 40th Anniversary.
When IWC decided to refresh its Da Vinci family of watches a decade ago, it introduced a unique tonneau-shaped case that harked back to the hexagonal case that defined Da Vinci watches in the 1970s. It garnered a cult following for its distinctive silhouette and the innovations IWC would introduce in the family.
The saying, “bigger is better”, might now always hold true, but in the case of Tudor’s new Heritage Black Bay timepiece, it certainly does. Previously clocking in at 36mm in diameter, the emblematic model is now presented in a 41mm case, which is a good 5mm larger than its predecessor.
