IWC Schaffhausen and its partner Solaris Yachts have worked on a very special customised sailing yacht, the Double Moon. A 55-foot Solaris 55 from the Italian boatbuilder was designed to perfectly reflect the new Portugieser watch collection.
Jaeger-LeCoultre and Mr Porter present the Master Ultra Thin Kingsman Knife watch, a limited edition of 100 timepieces, specially adapted for The King’s Man, the upcoming film directed by Matthew Vaughn.
The Chiming Jump Hour Ref. 5275 is a commemorative Patek Philippe watch that enriches the manufacture's 175th anniversary with considerable elegance and finesse, but also with verve and musical poetry. This timepiece, presented in a classic tonneau- shaped case, combines three jumping indications with an acoustic indication at the top of every hour. A feast for eyes and ears, it incorporates four patented mechanisms.
A two-tone dial with two vintage-style counters, and a double caseback complete with a cover: the Transocean Chronograph Edition limited series reinterprets the contemporary classic style of the Transocean line in a highly exclusive spirit. A tribute to Breitling’s priviledged ties with the chronograph.
In 1977, Corum celebrated the most universal of precious metals by creating a gold ingot watch. Drawing upon its rich history, the House based in La Chaux-de-Fonds pays tribute to this iconic 1970s model through a version featuring a dial graced with 15 grams of 24-carat gold resembling a freshly poured ingot and aptly named Heritage Ingot.
The Volvo Ocean Race is back. From the start in Alicante in October 2014 to the final destination in Gothenburg in June 2015, seven teams will be battling for victory under the most extreme conditions. IWC Schaffhausen will be at the heart of the world’s toughest offshore race as Official Timekeeper for the second time, and celebrates the event with a special edition: the Portuguese Yacht Club Chronograph “Ocean Racer”, limited to 1,000 watches. IWC is also consolidating its partnership with the Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing team, which is taking part in the race for the second time, too.
To pay tribute to its 175th anniversary, Patek Philippe created a collection of limited- edition commemorative timepieces, and one of them stands out in particular. It is the so far most complicated wristwatch of the eminent family-owned watchmaking companies and decidedly one of the world's most elaborate wristwatches.
Every enamel dial is a unique, uncommon part crafted entirely by the hands of an experienced enameller. These traditional techniques have been passed down the ages, without alteration to their essential requirements, formulas and know-how. These techniques consist in fixing the enamel powder and ensuring its harmonious balance through heat during delicate firing stages. The colour obtained remains unaffected by time or external factors, and stays the same year after year.
