In skeletonising the 3mm-thin movement of its new Classique Tourbillon Extra-Plat Squelette 5395, Breguet demonstrates its technical and artistic skill to stunning effect.
By presenting their latest releases actually inside the Manufacture (except Glashütte Original which located to one of Geneva's luxury hotels), Swatch Group's prestige brands were able to highlight the singularity of their watches while making clear the complexity inherent to production.
After slamming the door on Baselworld, Swatch Group had to come up with an alternative way to present its new releases to the press. The solution, the Time to Move roadshow, was the opportunity for the world's biggest watch group to flex its industrial muscle.
These previews of what brands will be serving up in Basel, or in Swatch Group's case, Zurich, make for tasty viewing. Mechanisms are laid bare or clad in unusual materials. Let's get this party started!
Breguet offers its Classique 5177 a Grand Feu enamel dial in a unique "Breguet blue" that mirrors the brand's elegant sobriety.
Attention to detail is evident throughout this limited-edition Breguet Marine 5517, especially created for the Swiss retailer's Blue Editions collection.
With 12 different animal symbols, the Chinese zodiac is an amusing as well as exotic theme for animal-loving watch collectors – and not only from China.
For the most romantic day of the year, Breguet has imagined a new interpretation of its Reine de Naples, in shades of pink and mauve, spotlighted with diamonds. The white gold case encloses an automatic movement with a moon-phase display.
