After sapphire, Hublot turns to transparent SAXEM, never before used in watchmaking, to produce the beautiful emerald green of the Big Bang MP-11.
IWC Schaffhausen and the Antoine de Saint-Exupéry Youth Foundation have marked the 80th anniversary of Antoine de Saint Exupéry’s historic flight across the Atlantic, with an exhibition at the IWC Boutique in New York. The Pilot’s Watch Timezoner Chronograph Edition “80 Years Flight to New York” commemorates this event.
When in 2011 Kering became the new owner of Sowind, and with it the Girard-Perregaux and JeanRichard brands, the French multinational sent its Trojan Horse into Swiss watchmaking. Ulysse Nardin is its latest catch.
Perrelet celebrates the beauty of the sea and the desire for discovery with two timepieces featuring high technical performance and unique design: Turbine Yacht and Turbine Diver.
Currency swings have taken a bite out of the main groups' results. The situation should improve slightly in the second half-year, although growth will remain slim.
70 years ago, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry took off on a reconnaissance flight over France and never returned. Now, IWC Schaffhausen commemorates the last flight of the celebrated pilot and author with three special limited editions, thereby strengthening its longstanding partnership with Saint-Exupéry’s descendants. Moreover, all proceeds from the sale of the Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Edition “The Last Flight” in platinum at an auction later this year will benefit the charitable Antoine de Saint-Exupéry Youth Foundation.
New addition to the lineSport, F.P.Journe introduces the Octa Sport with a case in titanium grade 5, high tech and ultra light material of dark grey colour with matte finishing. In a quest for performance and lightness, the movement and dial are made of aluminium alloy and this watch weighs from 60 to 70 grams depending of the model.
Rolex celebrates its partnership with James Cameron’s historic dive by launching a new version of the Rolex Deepsea.
