The Swiss watchmaker's second collaboration with the Godfather of Streetwear, Hiroshi Fujiwara, has produced a one-of-a-kind chrono, equipped with the Heuer 02 manufacture movement.
The two partners embarked on a very personal journey to create a unique masterpiece: a Rolls-Royce Wraith Black Badge inspired by Franck Muller’s famous Crazy Hours.
Since its founding in 1865, the Manufacture Zenith has been part of all the dreams and daring endeavours that transform utopian dreams into reality. Among the human adventures that have punctuated its history, there is one particular conquest that the brand accompanied right from its beginnings in the early 20th century: that of the SKIES. Driven by the same enterprising spirit as these pioneers who gave life to Icarus’ dream of flight, Zenith pays tribute to the Wright brothers through a watch issued in a 1,903-piece limited edition: the Pilot Montre d’Aéronef Type 20 GMT 1903.
Just one lot - a 1953 Rolex - broke the million-dollar mark at the final session of 2013 in the Big Apple. Sales were, as always, dominated by Patek Philippe, although Panerai and Longines again produced some exciting bidding.
In 2011, Greubel Forsey revolutionized the field of GMT (dual time zone) watches with their innovative timepiece and its original technique, aesthetics and practicality. Its exceptional precision movement, featuring the 24-second tourbillon with 25° inclination, now comes set against a platinum backdrop.
Cheval Blanc Randheli, the new second Cheval Blanc Maison, is an intimate and contemporary haven for the most demanding clientele, on the unspoiled Noonu Atoll in the Maldives.
With watch exports having attained a particularly high level in November 2012, it was difficult to do better in November 2013, especially with one fewer working day. However the monthly result was practically identical at 2.1 billion francs (-0.5%). Once again, watch exports have confirmed their consolidation at a high level.
The Rotonde de Cartier Astrocalendaire watch transforms the very essence of the perpetual calendar's functioning and appearance. The Maison's idea involves inventing a creative central display that stems from a revolutionary concept.
