Luminosity is at the heart of the latest creation from Urwerk. The time display, left visible by the cover that locks over the trademark satellite hours, gives off a green glow, hence the Kryptonite name. Guaranteed danger-free.
Having acquired Watchfinder, a UK-based platform for buying and selling pre-owned watches, Richemont is the first big name to enter the increasingly coveted and fast-growing market for second-hand timepieces.
Putting the seal on the partnership, the watch brand is presenting a limited-edition Navitimer Aviator 8. Following this, a curated selection of 31 Breitling watches will be available for purchase from the Mr Porter site.
A packed programme, a shorter schedule, and more connected than ever. Geneva, Thursday June 7, 2018 – Save the date: the next Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) at Palexpo, Geneva, will take place January 14-17, 2019. Setting the tone for the twelve months to come, it adopts a four-day schedule instead of the usual five with the convenience of longer opening hours, every day from 8.30am to 8pm.
Opened in January 2016 in Alserkal Avenue, Dubai's art district, the gallery has been a fabulous asset in promoting MB&F within the United Arab Emirates. Sixteen months on, following discussions with Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons, the decision was taken to up the stakes and move to new premises inside the giant Dubai Mall.
The movement-maker is an exhibitor at EPHJ in Geneva. One of the products on show will be the Seed VMF 5440 calibre – an extra-thin (3.40 mm) automatic flying tourbillon movement with micro-rotor.
It seems there is always someone doing their level best to pit Baselworld and SIHH one against the other. As though these two fine initiatives were opposites that could never attract... when for the past 28 years they have coexisted on perfectly good terms, each having "just about" found its market and its audience. And it's this "just about" that should be occupying our thoughts.
