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.
Copper inclusions lend a characteristic glimmer to aventurine glass, like infinite specks of gold that illuminate the dial of the Tonda 1950 Galaxy.
Dovetailing watchmaking and jewellery, the Royal Oak Frosted Gold stands out for its shimmering sparkle, inspired by the traditional "Florentine technique" of hammered gold.
The Italian watchmaker revisits its best-selling model. A slimmer silhouette and the P.9010 automatic movement add to the elegance of the Luminor Marina 1950 3 Days Automatic Acciaio.
NTPT carbon is no longer a male preserve, thanks to Richard Mille and the new RM 07-01 and RM 037, both in carbon studded with diamonds. A truly brilliant idea!
In an "Age of Transitions" - the theme of the 2016 Forum de la Haute Horlogerie - we cannot disregard values that have survived the centuries and which hold us steady in a sea of perplexity. Speech by Mr. Franco Cologni, President of the Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie Cultural Council, at the opening of the Forum.
