TAG Heuer - "Art Provocateur"

A hip artsy crowd gathered at Condesa, Mexico City’s trendy neighbourhood and home of established and up and coming artists to join an event hosted by TAG Heuer, the Swiss avant garde watchmaker. The American street artist Alec Monopoly transformed an art space into his workshop. The guests got a closer look into his creative process. Alec was putting finishing touches to a canvas in tribute to the Mexican solidarity and strength after the devastating earthquake of September 2017.

Cartier - So mysterious

The Mysterious Double Tourbillon movement created at the La Chaux-de-Fonds Manufacture in 2013 represents a milestone in Cartier watchmaking history: the tourbillon appears to be suspended in mid-air with no connection to the rest of the movement.

Roger Dubuis Excalibur Automatic Skeleton

In addition to its multiple motivations for pursuing its victorious vanguard charges into the skeleton- work kingdom, Manufacture Roger Dubuis inds in these impressive feats of miniaturisation – much like its ground-breaking micro-rotor also featured in this model – a perfect opportunity to reveal the prestigious inishes that earn it 100% Poinçon de Genève certiication. All faces of the 167 parts composing the new in-house RD820SQ automatic skeleton calibre are individually inished. Despite the constraints naturally entailed by the automatic movement, the Excalibur Automatic Skeleton maintains its architectural and powerful design.

Cadenas®, a jewel that tells the time

Created in 1935, the Cadenas watch marks the birth of one of the Maison’s most emblematic pieces. A symbol of sentimental attachment in the image of its clasp, the watch is said to have been inspired – like the Zip necklace – by the Duchess of Windsor. The first version of this jewel that tells the time was in gold, with a double snake chain acting as a bracelet. The lines of the case are straight and pure; the attachment takes on the rounded form of a padlock. The design is unique, asserting its status as an emblematic and instantly recognizable symbol. Graced with femininity, an angled dial underscores its refinement: the time is read discretely, in the manner of elegant ladies of the period. Boldly avant-garde, the Cadenas watch is notable for its unashamedly modern design. The curves of its hoop-shaped attachment blend perfectly with the straight lines of the case.
