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.
Kristian Haagen is a man who needs little introduction. Since his first piece was published in a national newspaper way back in 1998 he has carved himself a name with Fine Watchmaking as a true expert. A journalist and writer, a speaker, an auction consultant and one of our favourite influencers, we couldn’t think of anyone better to discuss the vintage trend currently sweeping the world of watches.
From the front, an exquisite, hand-guilloché dial with honeycomb pattern. From the back, an officer-type cover, also with guillochage, that opens to reveal the L.U.C 96.01-L ultra-thin movement. The L.U.C XPS 1860 Officer matches distinction with discretion.
We fell for their design, their movement, their evocative history or originality. Discover the watches from this year's Baselworld that captured the heart of HH Journal's editorial team.
Specialists at Audemars Piguet spent more than 600 hours developing this Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar. The complexity inherent to its movement was compounded by the challenges of machining and finishing the watch's black ceramic. An impressive achievement on every level.
Neo-retro colours, a 40-mm diameter, broad fluted crown, oversized numerals and an in-house movement: the new Pilot Type 20 Extra Special 40mm is vintage for today. For men and women.
Two overlapping cut-out discs driven by an inverted gear system, and two tourbillons rotating in opposite directions bring mesmerising movement to the dial of this Mobilis.
