TAG Heuer brings the Monaco's 50th anniversary celebration to a close with the one-of-a-kind Monaco Pièce d’Art. This restored and decorated 1969 Monaco will be auctioned to raise money for United Way of New York City.
CEO of Baume & Mercier then secretary-general of the Association Interprofessionnelle de la Haute Horlogerie, the late Eugen Maier dedicated his life to watchmaking, and his belief in ethics and excellence as its founding principles.
Brazil is on a fast-track to growth, and watchmakers are impatiently looking out for the least sign of an opening in this still to be conquered market. Some even claim that with lower import duties, sales of timepieces there could outstrip those in the United States.
Watchmakers have demonstrated no end of imagination to equip those magnificent men in their flying machines with suitable timepieces… the "pilot watches" that are a horological speciality in their own right. One such manufacturer is Zenith, now giving its vintage models a new lease on life.
Fine Watch movements, Swiss components, but flying the flag of the Principality of Monaco. While others find happiness under Swiss skies, the owners of Frédéric Constant and Alpina have taken a different tack.
Felix Baumgartner, who with Martin Frei co-founded Urwerk fifteen years ago, now belongs to the coterie of watchmakers who have invented a new language of time; a language that hasn't always been understood.
Alongside the SIHH 2012, De Bethune presented its finished Dream Watch IV, new interpretations of its DB 28, and an exceptional demonstration of the horological métiers d'art. As well as returning to a major breakthrough by the name of résonique.
