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.
In 2015, Rolex introduced a new standard of precision with a tolerance of -2/+2 seconds per day. In order to measure this precision, it had to first look at how its watches are worn. A task it has approached with characteristic thoroughness.
For the past four decades, the Nautilus has epitomised casual elegance, a milestone Patek Philippe has chosen to mark with two limited editions. What better way for the brand to wish its many admirers and collectors a happy anniversary.
Aurélie Branchini and Masaki Kanazawa are both restorers of antique clocks and watches at the Musée International d’Horlogerie (MIH) in La Chaux-de-Fonds, under Daniel Curtit.
Black case, yellow dial, manufacture movement… the Chronomat 44 Blacksteel Special Edition has performance written all over.
After a debut in steel, the 19Thirty Fleurier lends itself to red gold. With three dial colours and a choice of Arabic, Chinese or Roman numerals, it is a collector's delight.
