Inspired by the Frecce Tricolori watch that Breitling created for the hotshots of the Italian Air Force’s aerobatic fleet in 1983, the Super Chronomat is a supercharged, all-purpose sports watch.
After meteoric growth between 2015 and 2019, Gucci is looking for new ways to boost performance. The roadmap for 2021, the brand’s 100th anniversary year, includes a foray into Haute Horlogerie. The first watches are already on display, Place Vendôme in Paris.
Over the past twelve months FHH Journal has reported on watch industry news, covering everything from the markets to brands and their products. Here, in brief, are some of the events that marked this unusual year.
Whether representing traditional or contemporary watchmaking, the Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie is pleased to announce the arrival of two new partner-brands: Louis Moinet and Rebellion Timepieces. In joining the Foundation, they show their support of its action to promote the culture of watchmaking through training, information and by showcasing watchmaking excellence worldwide.
The limited-edition Panerai Luminor GMT Bucherer Blue, for the first time with blue Super-LumiNova®, features signature details such as an electric blue rubberized crown and blue strap stitching.
H. Moser & Cie. adds to its Streamliner collection with the automatic Funky Blue Flyback Chronograph.
The Vintage Collection gives a new lease on life to iconic movements from the past. For its latest release, the brand has chosen a much-loved movement from the 1950s: the Valjoux 88.
Hublot, in collaboration with L’Epée, has supersized its famous Meca-10 manufacture movement to clock proportions.
