Swiss watch exports have increased for the fourth consecutive month. In August, shipments grew to CHF 1.4 billion in value, a year-on-year increase of 4.2%.
Hewn from bronze, a first for Hublot, and anchored by a hand-embroidered deer leather strap, the Big Bang Bavaria sings the praises of the region and its traditions.
TRENDING RIGHT NOW
Kristian Haagen is a man who needs little introduction. Since his first piece was published in a national newspaper way back in 1998 he has carved himself a name with Fine Watchmaking as a true expert. A journalist and writer, a speaker, an auction consultant and one of our favourite influencers, we couldn’t think of anyone better to discuss the vintage trend currently sweeping the world of watches.
From the front, an exquisite, hand-guilloché dial with honeycomb pattern. From the back, an officer-type cover, also with guillochage, that opens to reveal the L.U.C 96.01-L ultra-thin movement. The L.U.C XPS 1860 Officer matches distinction with discretion.
We fell for their design, their movement, their evocative history or originality. Discover the watches from this year's Baselworld that captured the heart of HH Journal's editorial team.
Specialists at Audemars Piguet spent more than 600 hours developing this Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar. The complexity inherent to its movement was compounded by the challenges of machining and finishing the watch's black ceramic. An impressive achievement on every level.
Neo-retro colours, a 40-mm diameter, broad fluted crown, oversized numerals and an in-house movement: the new Pilot Type 20 Extra Special 40mm is vintage for today. For men and women.
Two overlapping cut-out discs driven by an inverted gear system, and two tourbillons rotating in opposite directions bring mesmerising movement to the dial of this Mobilis.
