The elegantly understated Patrimony moon phase retrograde date model is joining the Collection Excellence Platine concept. Launched in 2006, it offers collectors exceptional watches in 950 platinum limited editions.
Five timepieces with moon-phase displays are showcased in front of impressive star atlas images from the “Harmonia Macrocosmica” by Andreas Cellarius.
At Richard Mille, the fact that a tremendous challenge has been won is never a valid reason to stand still and be complacent. The introduction of the RM 056 Sapphire Tourbillon Split Seconds Chronograph three years ago was a watchmaking milestone of technical achievement; never before had such a complex case design for such an intricate movement been manufactured in pure sapphire. This debut was followed by the RM 56-01, which put the stakes even higher with a baseplate, bridges and third wheel additionally created from sapphire.
A titanium case with polished DLC finishing is the armour protecting this exceptional solid gold movement and dial. In a very rare combination, exemplary of traditional watchmaking craftsmanship with a fresh new approach, H. Moser & Cie. introduces the Endeavour Perpetual Calendar Black Golden Edition in a series limited to only 10 pieces. The HMC 341 manufacture calibre housed within this watch is a sophisticated execution of the ingenious perpetual calendar movement (winner of the Grand Prix de Genève for a complicated watch), with solid gold plates and bridges, hand-engraving and a Moser escapement with the Straumann Double Hairspring®.
With the new Grande Complication watch in the Haute Joaillerie line, Jaeger-LeCoultre presents an unprecedented blend of design, technical construction, watchmaking art and exquisite craftsmanship, striking a fine balance that provides a spectacular demonstration of the Manufacture's mastery and style. The watch incorporates three complications: a minute repeater, a flying tourbillon and a zodiacal calendar. Each is regarded as extremely complicated in its own right and all of them are built according to the latest watchmaking standards, bound together by the romantic soul conferred on them by true artists working together at Manufacture Jaeger-LeCoultre. This Master Grande Tradition Grande Complication will be produced in an 8-piece white gold limited edition, honouring the exclusivity of the movement and the splendour of its gem-setting.
This is a refined watch Classic Fusion pure white as snow. White diamonds, white dial, white strap, the Hublot “Art of Fusion” philosophy goes all white - as magic and eternal, so feminine and elegant, summertime or wintertime.
Sun, light, heat and tanned skin: the summer is the dream season for all men and women who wish to live their lives to the fullest, making the most of each moment. JeanRichard has also set its clocks on full summer and sunny time by illuminating in 18K pink gold three models from its flagship Terrascope collection. With their characteristic case divided into various sections, these timepieces allow for subtle combinations of materials.
