Avatar

Patek Philippe, a name synonymous with quality, history and attention to the fine detail. At this years Baselworld, Patek once again proved true to these qualities. Where perhaps it is not so obvious at first, the collection this year has become richer with new complications, beautiful revisions of existing complications and celebrated the birthday of one of its most renowned complications. So where to begin? For me, with my favourite new novelty, a complication that is perhaps for many the signature complication .....Story

UPDATE 20 March 2016: LIVE PHOTOS added at bottom of this report Forumners, This is just a flash report of perhaps the most stunning news for both watch "lovers" and consumers globally. Currently, it is buried amongst all the chaos and hype that are Baselworld public relations media distractions. This is like the 2015 announcement of Rolex 3255 movement being "photobombed" by Google/Intel/Apple connected wristwatch frenzy. Last year, everybody got excited by the Apple Watch and forgot to notice that the biggest .....Story

For the first post of the new year, what better than more details on one of the new watches to be launched at SIHH 2013. Cartier just released movement photos of the Ballon Bleu tourbillon with double jumping second time zone, which is, in my opinion, the most interesting of the watches shown as part of the SIHH 2013 preview. The view from the back... And from the front...Story

The latest embodiment of Piaget's virtuosity in the field of ultra-thin movements since 1957, the Emperador Coussin Automatic Minute Repeater sets another double record for slenderness in its category: 4.8 mm for its calibre, and 9.4 mm for its case. This exceptional model was entirely crafted in-house thanks to the twin expertise of the two Manufactures Piaget: the one located in La Côte-aux-Fées for the calibre, and the other in Plan-les-Ouates for the case. And since the exceptional loves to rub shoulders ... ...Story

Pre-SIHH 2013: Officine Panerai Introduces the PAM530 Luminor 1950 Rattrapante 8 Days Titanio

Avatar
AnthonyTsai
Officine Panerai presents the new Luminor 1950 Rattrapante 8 Days Titanio, a sophisticated haute horlogerie model in which the classic Panerai design is perfectly combined with the technical aspects of high quality sports watchmaking. PANERAI LUMINOR 1950 RATTRAPANTE 8 DAYS TITANIO - 47mm The Luminor 1950 Rattrapante 8 Days Titanio is a split-seconds chronograph with vertical clutch and twin column wheels, and it offers numerous functions that are characteristic of top-of-therange mechanical watchmaking, all assembled in the P.2006 movement, entirely developed and created in the Officine Panerai manufacture in Neuchtel. The split-seconds function, also known as rattrapante, operates two hands that are superimposed and partially independent: the first is entirely controlled by the button at 8 o'clock, which starts, stops and resets the chronograph hand; the second, controlled by the button at 10 o'clock, is used for measuring partial times or a second event simultaneous with the first. To make it easier and clearer to read, the hand of the small minute counter moves in jumps instead of continuously...Story

Montblanc's TimeWriter II Chronographe Bi-Frquence 1,000 challenges the Laws of Physics On Monday, January 16 th 2012 at the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) in Geneva, the new Montblanc TimeWriter II Chronographe Bi-Frquence will be unveiled to the public and the international press. The laws of physics are inviolable. The principle of conservation of energy decrees the impossibility of ever constructing a perpetuum mobile . And in order to measure time to the nearest 1/1,000 th of a second, a mechanical watch must have a balance that completes 3.6 million semi-oscillations per hour, i.e...Story
