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.
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.
Born from an iconic line, the Dual Time Manufacture enables the second time zone and date to be adjusted both forward and backward. Like the Marine collection, it is now equipped with a movement that has been developed and manufactured entirely in-house by Ulysse Nardin.
The technical and aesthetic research pursued by De Bethune through its watchmaking creations seeks to define tomorrow’s watchmaking, even when that entails entirely rethinking its mechanical architecture and defining new aesthetic codes geared toward achieving a universal ideal. This approach is conceived a continuum with the accomplishments of the great historical mastery.
The brand's sales grew 12% last year. Its chairman, Jean-Claude Biver, is taking the reins of LVMH's watch division.
