The manufacture presents a new perpetual calendar that displays the day, the date, and the month on a single line in an elongated aperture beneath 12 o'clock. To combine this unique feature with crisp legibility and high reliability, the designers developed a new self-winding movement.
The “cloche” (bell) shape appeared in Cartier pieces in 1920. “Cloche de Cartier”, because, when placed horizontally, its outline is reminiscent of a service bell rung at a counter. Like many Cartier signature pieces, it has been named after its shape, made notable for the purity of its line and clear inspiration.
Increasingly, watch brands are taking environmental concerns into consideration, from renewable energy to soft mobility solutions. This is a natural progression in an industry focused on the long term.
Two independent movements in resonance indicate the time in two time zones for the debut of the Manufacture's Masterpiece collection.
Last month, Jean-Claude Biver announced he was retiring from his daily duties at LVMH's Watch division. After an extraordinary 40-year career that took him from Blancpain to Omega, then on to Hublot, TAG Heuer and Zenith, he talks about whether there is such a thing as a "Biver touch", and how he plans to spend his time.
Coinciding with SIAR in Mexico City, Hublot presents the Big Bang One Click Calavera Catrina, a celebration of one of the country's most popular holidays, El Día de los Muertos, with a vibrant and decorative skull on its dial.
Synonymous with precision and innovation, Breitling is the 43rd brand to join the FHH in its mission to promote excellence in watchmaking.
