The German town of Glashütte has been a centre for fine watchmaking since 1845. Nomos Glashütte is marking the occasion with three limited-edition versions of a classic model.
Patek Philippe presents the new Ref. 5303 as its first minute repeater with the striking mechanism on the dial side, together with reinterpretations of the legendary Ref. 5370 Split-Seconds Chronograph and of the classic Ref. 5270 Perpetual Calendar Chronograph.

As befits such a virtuoso of complicated timepieces, this new watch by Kari Voutilainen incorporates a second time zone with 24-hour indicator and a retrograde power-reserve indicator.

With the Récital 12 and Récital 15, this new movement has already demonstrated carefully considered versatility without the slightest sacrifice in terms of quality, reliability, esthetics or emotion, regardless of the complications it powers. The Récital 17 is another fine example, presenting new facets in the form of three time zones and a high-precision moon phase that indicates the current phase of the lunar cycle in both hemispheres.
