Leinfelder Meridian Antigua 2010 Limited Edition

The Leinfelder Meridian Antigua is a special edition chronograph which was made for the Antigua Sailing Week 2010.

Professor Dr. Ulrich L. Rohde, himself a devoted fan of watches and also a keen yachtsman, inspired this watch after he won the Antigua Sailing Week 2009 with his boat Dragon Fly Plus and his crew. The chronograph with its smart-casual style also captivates with its unique design: in cross-section, the watch case evokes the capitals of ancients columns, with their fluid forms and shapely curves.

To cut a blank out of gold, the Leinfelder team developed a data set containing over one million commands to direct an ultra-modern-axis-milling module. They then finished it off with goldsmithing of the highest order.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Jarno Trulli Chronograph Limited Edition (2010)

The Royal Oak Offshore is an extreme version of the legendary Royal Oak, the quintessential sports watch that has become an Audemars Piguet icon, this superlative line of timepieces embodies the talent and inventiveness that the Manufacture has dedicated to serving aesthetics and performance. In 2010, the brand unveiled a special edition Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph to honour Jarno Trulli, the Italian racing champion.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Jarno Trulli Chronograph Limited Edition (2010)

The Royal Oak Offshore Jarno Trulli Chronograph embodies the values shared by the racing driver and the Manufacture: a passion for perfection and precision, coupled with an obstinate determination to maintain high standards.

Jarno Trulli

Loyal to the tradition of frequently associating this collection with the world of motor sports, the Royal Oak Offshore Jarno Trulli Chronograph combines a highly innovative exterior with a remarkable chronograph movement.

Its 42 mm diameter case, which is water-resistant to 100 metres, is composed of innovative materials including forged carbon, which Audemars Piguet was the first to master and to introduce into haute horlogerie. The amazingly light middle is made from 12.5 grams of carbon fibres compressed at pressures of more than 300 kg/cm 2 and measuring a total of 100 km in length.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Jarno Trulli Chronograph Limited Edition (2010)

For the famous octagonal bezel – the part of the watch most exposed to impacts – the brand has opted for Cermet, a material notably used in creating the space shuttle heat shield. A contraction of the words “ceramics” and “metal”, this composite material combines the finest qualities of the two materials: extreme hardness of 1,450 Vickers as well as resistance to shocks, extreme temperatures and corrosion.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Jarno Trulli Chronograph Limited Edition (2010)

In addition to its physical and chemical properties, Cermet has also been chosen for its aesthetic qualities: its deep grey colour is nuanced by the mirror-polished bevel and the radiance of the eight distinctive polished steel screws.

The combination of the intense grey of this Cermet bezel and the shimmering black of the forged carbon case middle creates an elegantly understated and sophisticated effect.

These graded shades of grey are further complemented by the matt sheen of the sand-blasted titanium used for the caseback, pushers and crown, while a few bright red accents lends a sense of dynamic vibrancy to this harmonious overall appearance: the hour-markers circling the slate grey dial featuring the “Méga Tapisserie” motif, the hour and minutes hands, as well as the chronograph seconds hand.

Jarno Trulli’s signature, also in red like a dramatic scratch on the transparent sapphire crystal caseback, also accentuates the sporting essence of this model. These vivid touches endow it with an aura of controlled power very much like that of a high-powered racing car revving up on the starting grid.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Jarno Trulli Chronograph Limited Edition (2010)

The “engine” of the Royal Oak Offshore Jarno Trulli Chronograph is in the same vein as its bodywork. Visible through the transparent caseback, the mechanical selfwinding 3126/3840 movement, based on Manufacture Audemars Piguet Calibre 3120, makes it a formidably accurate measuring instrument.

Its reliability and its performances stem in particular from a variable-inertia balance fitted with eight inertia-blocks and a cross-through bridge; while its user-friendliness is guaranteed by a fast-adjustment instant-jump calendar, a 60-hour power reserve and a time-setting mechanism equipped  with a stop seconds device.

The impeccable technology of Calibre 3126/3840 is admirably matched by its finishing. Audemars Piguet is indeed a benchmark in the field of movement decoration, and this entirely hand-assembled movement is no exception to the rule.

The chamfering, polishing and Côtes de Genève on the bridges, and the circular-graining on both sides of the mainplate, are all meticulously executed by hand. The 22-carat gold oscillating weight is galvanic coated to give it the same modern touch as the watch as a whole and it also bears the heraldic crests of Audemars Piguet’s founding families.

This timepiece is secured firmly to the wrist with a black rubber strap and a sand-blasted titanium folding clasp. The Royal Oak Offshore Jarno Trulli Chronograph was issued in a limited, numbered edition of 500.

STOWA Chronograph

Introduced in 2010, the STOWA Chronograph takes inspiration from a historical pocket watch on display at Stowa museum. CEO Jörg Schauer, reacting to the demand by the customers for a Chronograph model, decided to create the new model by following the design principles that used in the construction of an antique pocket watch made by Stowa.

The very sober typography of the dial, as well as the production process of the dial itself (it is a pressed dial) is very attractive. For this procedure a „Pfaff“ (Positivform) needs to be used. After harden the Pfaff, a „Gesenk“ (Negativform) needs to be pressed.To realise the dial was quite difficult, since there are only a few specialists on the market who are able to manufacture classical press-tools. When the „Gesenk“ is getting too hard, it can be that the „Pfaff“ gets damaged or even ruined.

Jörg Schauer selected the classical manufacturing process in order to be able to get sharp numerals – just like the Original. Modern dial work tools are getting cut directly into the „Gesenk“which can be detected by the rounded edges of the numerals. At the end every milling tool needs a certain radius, which can be seen on the made product.

In this case the authenticity was more important and also more expensive, but it was worth it. The basic dial is made of bronze. Therefore the numerals are perfectly polished with only one single diamond cut.

The matching hands are pink gold plated. Naturally the used hands are made with Stowa own tools and therefore they are well-matched to the entire look. This Stowa Chrono has been built in a 41mm stainless steel case and has no date display.

Zeitwinkel 312° Automatic Watch

Zeitwinkel 312° watch is an elegant and modest timepiece having a classical, minimalistic design. The timepiece displays the hour and minute and no second hands or other indications. This classical timepiece is powered by Zeitwinkel manufacture movement ZW 0102.

This watch movement with automatic winding and 72 hour running time ensures that the owner will always receive precise information about the time of day. The luxurious design of this generously proportioned movement with German silver plates in order to forgo any kind of embellishment on the back of the watch.

The Zeitwinkel 312° was developed for those who see a watch as a reliable companion that precisely displays the time. One hand to display the hour and another for the minute – anything more is necessary. The result of intentionally omitting the second hand is the modest serenity that the Zeitwinkel 312° radiates.

The length of the hands was coordinated precisely to the minute markers and the indexes set at intervals of five minutes. The edges of the hands and indicators refract incident light in such a manner that a high contrast to the dial is achieved, always making the time easy to read.

The dial is accentuated with a fine latticework that can only be seen at certain angles. The crown of the Zeitwinkel 312° can be pulled out in several steps. Due to its easy-to-grip surface structure and ample dimensions, the watch can be wound easily and the time set precisely.

The Zeitwinkel caliber ZW 0102 is a mechanical manufacture movement with automatic winding. Developed by Zeitwinkel especially for watches from the first series, it is manufactured in small-quantity lots in Jura (Switzerland) with high precision machinery and meticulous diligence.

Zeitwinkel caliber ZW 0102 is a robust, accurate and versatile basic movement that can be equipped either with a sweep or a small second and has a relatively large date display as an option.

The running time is 72 hours. The movement has the formidable diameter of 30.4 mm, 30 jewels and a total of 257 components, a frequency of 28,800 oscillations, a Glucydur balance and a robust three-quarter plate that plays a significant role in the mechanical stability of the movement. All plates and bridges are made of German silver.

This material is noticeably harder than the brass that is usually used and requires the greatest precision in its manufacture and ornamentation. Zeitwinkel caliber ZW 0102 is chamfered and hand-decorated.

After thorough quality inspection and five-stage calibration, it is installed in house and subjected to a running test that lasts several days. Only when the measured accuracy lies within a strict tolerance range is the caliber ZW 0102 sent on its journey to a new owner together with its Zeitwinkel watch.

The case for the Zeitwinkel 312° was developed over a period of 14 months in precise accordance with the Zeitwinkel caliber ZW 0102 movement. It is constructed of 1.4435 steel alloy which, due to its high resistance to inter-crystalline corrosion and non-oxidizing acids, protects the valuable manufacture movement especially well. In addition, this alloy is especially well suited for products that are in continuous contact with the skin.

To attain interplay between the polished surfaces and those with a matte structure, the casings are prefabricated using precision machinery at a traditional German business and construction is then completed, primarily by hand.

In this process, 26 parts are assembled in more than 80 individual steps for each case. The case is water resistant up to a tested pressure of five bar due to the back cover, which is attached with six screws.

Despite a diameter of 42.5 mm and a height of 10.97 mm, the Zeitwinkel case displays an elegant and well-proportioned appearance. The case’s unique design becomes immediately apparent the very first time you take a glance at the side of the watch.

In particular, the interplay of polished surfaces with strikingly structured, precisely worked areas provides a Zeitwinkel watch with its distinctive appearance. This clear-cut design is continued on the back, with its large window showing the movement, as well as in the design of the crown.

Sapphire glass is used on both the front and back sides of Zeitwinkel timepieces. The convex lunette crystal has a diameter of 35.4 mm. It has multiple anti-reflection coatings on the inside so that the hands do not reflect on the interior surface, and because a coating on the outside of the crystal could wear down.

The case back glass is flat and has an anti-reflection coating on the inside as well. As a result, the time can always be easily read, even under extreme lighting conditions. Both crystal and back plate glass are tightly inserted into the casing of the Zeitwinkel watch using a complex sealing system, ensuring that the watch is sealed up to a pressure of 5 bar.

On the back, there is an extraordinarily large (30.9 mm) window to match the manufacture movement, which also has the extraordinary diameter of 30.4 mm. This allows you to admire the details of the hand decorated inner workings of your Zeitwinkel watch, instead of an industrial retainer ring.

The crown of Zeitwinkel watch combines a high-quality exterior with excellent operating functionality. Due to its 12 grooves and large diameter, the crown is very easy to grip. With its easy pull, the crown allows you to set all the functions of the watch and then disappears into a precisely sunken, space-saving notch. Screw-drown crown is often difficult to handle and must always be wound completely to ensure that the watch remains sealed. The brand uses a multi-stage sealing system with dual O-rings.

Dial of Zeitwinkel 312° watch is sober and pure. Nothing distracts from the most basic and distinctive function of a watch: the reliable display of the time. Despite this, it is striking due to its discreet latticework of Zeitwinkel logos, which becomes apparent only when the watch is viewed from an angle.

The indexes set every five minutes and supplementing the minute markers, have the classic arrow shape and are coordinated precisely to the length of the hands. With their beveled edges, they always form a strong contrast to the dial, and are thus easily visible in all lighting conditions. Zeitwinkel 312° is available with a choice of a black or a silver-faced dial.

The hour and minute hands are carefully balanced and produced in one of the best specialized manufactures in Switzerland. It is precisely coordinated to the indexes and the minute markers for easy time reading.

The hands are diamond-cut to facilitate easy reading of time even in varying lighting conditions. This ensures that one side of the hand always reflects incident light in such a manner that there is a strong contrast to the dial. However the hands are not coated with any fluorescent compound by intention.

Ulysse Nardin FREAK DIAMonSIL® Platinum Limited Edition

Half a decade ago, Swiss luxury watch brand Ulysse Nardin created a buzz in the history of traditional watchmaking by unveiling a watch code named “FREAK”. Until now, this watch has represented the pinnacle of both technological and artistic watchmaking. Produced in very small numbers, the original FREAK is sought after by the most elite and respected watch connoisseurs around the world.

No watch company has ever produced a timepiece like the FREAK – one of the most technically innovative watches conceived, designed and produced in the past 100 years. The concept was a technical tour de force, requiring the combined efforts of three of watchmaking’s most renowned engineers. The arrangement of parts was inconceivably unorthodox – it had essentially no true case. The crystal and the bezel were actually part of the movement; the Freak had no crown, no hands and the movement pivoted to indicate time.

It contained fewer parts than the simplest watch today, and remained a Carrousel Tourbillon by necessity. No watch had ever been designed this way. The development of the FREAK pioneered the use of silicium in the context of necessity – not for decoration or to be different. While developing this novel escapement the Ulysse Nardin engineers explored the various opportunities to be had with the implementation of nanotechnology. Indeed, the accuracy and lightness (accompanied with the ease in designing complicated movement parts) confirmed the unique abilities of silicium for the production of our escapement wheels.

The primary goal of the brand continues to be the improvement of the products, while increasing their maximum life span and protecting the mechanism against external strains and stress. Diamond “forever” is the ideal material to achieve this purpose. Beginning in 2005 Ulysse Nardin successfully applied diamonds on the FREAK DIAMOND HEART. The latest advancements in technology allow for alloying the light and easy-to-design silicium with diamond. Years of intense work at La Chaux-de-Fonds and Le Locle have culminated with Ulysse Nardin presenting the incredibly supercharged and highly tuned version of the FREAK – the FREAK DIAMonSIL®.

The FREAK DIAMonSIL® in platinum is the first timepiece sporting a synthetic nanocrystal diamond escapement grown on a silicium raw part. This noble material was developed in cooperation with Sigatec (a highly qualified manufacturer of precision silicium parts) and its partner GFD in Ulm (leader in producing components in diamond with nanotechnology for various industries). The FREAK DIAMonSIL® represents the next leap forward for Ulysse Nardin.

The FREAK DIAMonSIL® is the embodiment of its proud tradition of 160 years of Innovation with Ulysse Nardin leading the way in silicium and diamond technology. The FREAK DIAMonSIL® is a technical work of art, a symphony in white and blue in a Limited Edition of 28 pieces in Platinum.

Dual Ulysse Escapement
The Dual Ulysse Escapement is the most vital part of the watch movement and is made in this very light but extremely strong and novel material : DIAMonSIL®, a registered trademark of Ulysse Nardin. The Dual Ulysse Escapement has 2 wheels, allowing natural force transmission: the force and the move have the same direction, alternatively clockwise with the first wheel and counter-clockwise with the second. The wheels have 18 active teeth, guaranteeing excellent energy transmission to the oscillator. No lubrication is required – the transmission occurs through a “gear like” mechanism. The impulse is given to an alternator, which passes it further to the balance shaft. This alternator is a gear which turns alternatively in one direction and then the opposite direction. The innovative principle of the Dual Ulysse Escapement permits a dramatic reduction of the lift angle from the usual 50-52 degrees (Swiss Anchor) down to approximately 30 degrees. The lift angle is the arc run by the balance between its first contact with the escapement and its last contact. The shorter the arc, the lower is the disturbance of the natural oscillation of the balance.

Da Vindice Vindex Tourbillon Barometer

Vindex Tourbillon Barometer is an amazing horological masterpiece from Da Vindice, a promising young Swiss luxury watch brand founded in 2009.

Originally launched in 2010, this revolutionary mechanical timepiece represents a fascinating fusion of a tourbillon and an aneroid barometer , which evokes a great historical discovery in the field of mechanical watchmaking.

Da Vindice Vindex Tourbillon Barometer watch pink gold version

The barometer is part of the measuring instruments which have contributed to the birth of meteorology, this instrument can measure the atmospheric pressure and thus get weather forecast. The first aneroid barometer was introduced around the year 1840.

The type of barometer used in this watch is an aneroid barometer. The atmospheric pressure is managed in a capsule, known as « Vidie capsule» hermetically sealed with the air partially removed from it.
The walls of the capsule are held apart by a spring. Small changes in atmospheric pressure cause the capsule to expand or contract. Therefore, a mechanical system can amplify the movements resulting from changes in pressure to make them visible on the dial.

The Tourbillon Barometer watch by Da Vindice is a noble creation endowed with a power reserve at 10 o’clock. The tourbillon complication is visible on the centre part of the partially skeletonized dial.

This exclusive wristwatch is water-resistant up to 3 ATM, despite its mechanical complexity. The Vindex Tourbillon Barometer  is a limited edition of 50 pieces.

Glashütte Original Marine Chronometer Set Limited Edition – Restored Glashütte Marine Chronometers with Officially Certified Senator Chronometer Platinum

In 2010 Glashütte Original announced an exceptional tribute to marine chronometers and the art of navigation at sea: the noted German maker of high-end mechanical watches recovered and restored thirteen original marine chronometers and paired each with an officially certified Senator Chronometer Platinum. The two mechanical chronometers are linked, apart from aesthetic details, by a shared tradition of high-precision watchmaking in Glashütte.

Both timepieces represent the finest of German watchmaking traditions: the marine chronometers originally manufactured in Glashütte have been lovingly restored by experts from Glashütte Original’s Atelier. The second member of this extraordinary set is the Platinum edition of the high end Saxon manufacture’s extraordinary Senator Chronometer, winner of multiple “Watch of the Year” awards in 2010 and one of the finest of contemporary mechanical timepieces. Set side by side in a handmade oak case, these exceptional chronometers form a unique and distinctive tribute to the history of navigation and the role of precision timekeeping at sea.

Construction and development of mechanical marine chronometers began in the 19th century. Over the course of more than a century, some 13,000 were manufactured in Glashütte. Thirteen of these historic instruments, manufactured during the final years of production in Glashütte, were discovered during preparations for the opening of the German Watch Museum Glashütte. It was an astonishing find, and each has been carefully restored and lavishly finished: the entire chronometer housing has been carefully polished and given a sophisticated rhodium finish, as have the fittings and screws.

Glashütte Original’s restoration experts built new gimbal mountings for each of the chronometers, and highly skilled artisans crafted thirteen wooden cases in matt black oak. In addition to the technical testing and adjustment of all components, restorative work performed on the chronometer movement includes extensive finishing. All plates, bridges, screws and pillars have been finely ground, polished and finished with hard gilding. The balance rim, weights and adjustment screws have also been carefully examined, re-worked and polished. The dial has been restored too: the sophisticated frosted silver plating has been refurbished in such a way as to retain the original milled, black inlay numerals and indexes. New fonts and the numbering of each unit complete the unique style of this distinctive nautical timepiece.

The contemporary component of the Glashütte Original Marine Chronometer Set – Limited Edition is the Senator Chronometer Platinum. The evident „family relationship“ between the two timepieces is by no means coincidental. Its elegant „Chemin de fer“ minute ring, for example, quite intentionally evokes the classic look of Glashütte marine chronometers and many other details have been inspired by the historic navigational instrument.

The Senator Chronometer is the first precision timepiece from Glashütte Original to receive official chronometer certification. Tested over the course of 15 days by the chronometer-testing branch of the Office of Weights and Measures of the State of Thuringia, this prestigious timepiece passed a series of severe tests with flying colours, thus earning an official chronometer certificate – certified assurance of the highest rate precision in a mechanical watch.

Notable features of the Senator Chronometer Platinum include an innovative stop-seconds reset mechanism that makes it much easier to synchronize the minute and second hands when setting the time. The new feature has won considerable praise from watch experts, who have commented as well on the Senator Chronometer’s rapid date change mechanism – the Glashütte Original panorama date display jumps ahead precisely at midnight – and noted the newly developed planetary gear train for the power reserve display.

On the back of the exclusive platinum case, an antireflective sapphire crystal reveals the artful mechanics of the Caliber 58-01. The finely decorated three-quarter plate, screw-mounted gold chatons and hand-engraved balance cock provide impressive further evidence of superb horological craftsmanship. Black Roman numerals and indexes and polished blued steel hands lend an elegant aspect to the sophisticated silvery dial, framed and complemented by the precious platinum case and hand-crafted Louisiana alligator leather bracelet.

The marine chronometer marks the end of the journey after two eventful centuries of precise mechanical timekeeping at sea. For its part, the Senator Chronometer offers ample evidence that the technical and artistic brilliance of an extraordinary era in Glashütte remain a living heritage, one that continues to evolve and to inspire the creation of the most extraordinary of timepieces.

BOVET – Pininfarina Tourbillon Ottanta®

Introduced in 2010, this exceptional timepiece by BOVET FLEURIER heralds Pininfarina’s first ever collaboration with a luxury watch manufacture. The development of this new calibre and every aspect of the design and production of its 514 constituent parts is the work of DIMIER 1738’s engineers and watchmakers. It is housed in a convertible case, meaning it can be worn on the wrist with either of its two faces displayed, or combined with a titanium chain – also exclusively designed – for use as a pocket watch, or deployed as a miniature table clock.

The energy required to power the two barrels of this movement is supplied by an off-centred, bidirectional platinum micro-rotor. This choice poses an immense technical challenge, yet the result is the preservation of the transparency of the tourbillon cage, which is never concealed regardless of which face of the watch the user wishes to display. To obtain optimal inertia and efficiency, a manufacturing process was developed after many hours of research which allows the micro-rotor to be made from a single block of platinum. Despite many different operations including stamping, machining and decoration, this process was masterfully carried out.

As well as displaying hours and minutes in a traditional layout, a reverse hand-fitting carrying a single hand that allows the hours, half-hours and quarter-hours to be read on the movement’s other face. Reminiscent of the single hand of the very first pocket watches dating back to 500 year ago, it is a type of display ideally suited to a reversible watch. Offset at 12 o’clock, it overlays the intricacies of the mechanical movement on a level with the apex of the micro-rotor of the automatic system.

As a tribute to the 80th anniversary of Pininfarina, the technical designers of DIMIER 1738, created a tourbillon which makes one complete revolution in exactly 80 seconds, whereas traditionally this operation lasts one minute. To achieve this, they created an intersection in the going train. After the third wheel, the train is divided into two separate reduction trains: one powering the seconds-crown, which makes one revolution every three minutes, the other, specially designed, transmitting its energy to the tourbillon cage to ensure that it completes each of its rotations in 80 seconds; a solution both simple and ingenious.

It will be noted also that the rim of the balance wheel has been designed in the shape of an ‘8’, centred in the ring representing the ‘0’, evoking once more with subtlety and attention to detail the 80th anniversary of Pininfarina. The upper pivot of the tourbillon cage carries a hand which naturally does not display the seconds but traverses eight segments, recalling the number of decades in Pininfarina’s history, and points to eight emblematic phrases penned by Pininfarina and engraved on the timepiece. The assembly is balanced by a specially designed Pininfarina screw.

Because the tourbillon cage does not carry a 60 seconds-hand, an inventive solution was adopted. Many hours of research were required to obtain a crown that was concentric with the tourbillon cage.

The latter, measuring 18mm in diameter, would have provided an impractical indication, its one-minute rotation allowing insufficient time to comfortably read the numerals appearing in the aperture. It therefore rotates every three minutes on seven ruby bearings, which reduces the coefficient of friction to a minimal amount. Advanced technology was required for its production to ensure that its thinness and concentricity were within a tolerance of 2 microns. Lastly, to reduce friction and consequent loss of amplitude, a special smooth surface finish was applied, optimising frictional efficiency.

The power reserve is indicated at 9 o’clock. To round off this perfect symmetry, the big date is displayed at 6 o’clock by means of two concentric discs. The big date also benefits from all the ingenuity of the designers and technicians of DIMIER 1738, since its rapid adjustment is possible at any moment, regardless of the time shown by the hands, affording much appreciated security in an otherwise delicate mechanism. The instantaneous date change system, especially developed for this occasion, consumes little energy and over a limited duration and therefore has virtually no effect on the amplitude and performance of the regulating organ and by a consequence maintaining impeccable precision.

The essence of the partnership between Bovet and Pininfarina resides in the decoration of this automatic tourbillion. BOVET provides its exceptional expertise in mechanical architecture and its mastery of multiple, age-old and modern decorative techniques, while the latter contributes its virtuosity in terms of design, elegance and colour associations.

In close collaboration with their counterparts at Pininfarina, the design team at DIMIER 1738 developed exterior parts and a “motorization” that merge into a single, coherent entity, managing to overcome considerable obstacles to create an overall effect of clarity and depth despite the extreme complexity of the movement.

Experts in the art of showing materials and volumes to optimal effect, Pininfarina designers suggested using the widest possible range of nuances of grey, sensing that the adoption of a monochrome approach would have the effect of smoothing volumes while recourse to different colours would prove aesthetically unappealing.

To achieve unsurpassed refinement in terms of decoration, the engineers and craftsmen of DIMIER 1738 analysed 56 decorative samples and shades of grey and anthracite. Many of these were specially designed and developed for this occasion. All were rigorously tested to guarantee technical and aesthetic results that are unalterable over time.

In a final detail that symbolises the virtuosity of DIMIER 1738 craftsmen, the surfaces of bridges on either side of the tourbillon cage feature circular bipolar Clous de Paris decorative work, a feat seemingly impossible to achieve until now.

The visual identifiers of both Houses are expressed to perfection by the watch’s exterior parts, which together revoke their most prestigious creations. The case is a revisited version of the already famous AMADEO by BOVET, proposed here in titanium and steel completed with black DLC covering. Two other versions with a white or rose gold bezel and case-back are also available. If this AMADEO case is uncompromised aesthetically, it remains a fantastic distillation of mechanical craftsmanship.

Two push-pieces on either side of the bow allow the upper section of the wristlet to be extracted. A “minute repeater” type slide releases the bottom bezel which pivots on a hinge at 6 o’clock. This operation allows the lower section of the wristlet to be released. The watch can then be removed and transformed into a miniature table clock resting on a stable support assured by the lower bezel. According to mood or necessity, the user can then reattach the wristlet and choose which face of the watch to display, or reclose the lower bezel and replace the upper section of the wristlet with a chain, turning this prestigious object into an elegant pocket watch.

In addition to Pininfarina’s active contribution to the design of the watch, eight emblematic phrases each reflecting one decade of the brand’s existence and signed by Mr Paolo Pininfarina himself have been engraved around the middle of the case. The work of engraving was the most demanding task in the manufacture of this case in terms of time and resources, to ensure that despite its size, the wording remained clearly legible to the naked eye.

The strap for its part is composed of two types of rubber whose surface reflects the block-polish and sand-jetted finish of the movement’s constituent parts. It has duplicate-moulded stainless-steel inserts ensuring harmonious integration with the case and an “alcantara effect” calfskin lining created specifically for optimal comfort. Fifty different operations were required for its manufacturing.

Adding a final touch to this anthology, the dial has a brass flange with an anthracite colour finish and a rock crystal lower plate which reveals, in addition to the movement in its entirety, the power reserve hand and balance decorated meticulously in the same shade of blue as the Pininfarina logo, which appears also on the stitching of the sumptuous leather presentation case.

Naturally the OTTANTA® Tourbillon co-signed by BOVET and Pininfarina is produced in a limited edition (numbered on the movement and engraved plate of the presentation case) of naturally 80 pieces.

A legend in the making
A legitimate source of national pride, Italian design is world renowned and appreciated for the unsurpassed elegance and refinement of its creations. Pininfarina, a true standard bearer of this activity, celebrated its 80th anniversary in 2010. Eight decades during which Pininfarina has laid down creative milestones whose elegant profiles have helped define a modern style and aesthetic, becoming a source of reverie and wonderment for many generations. From the first blueprints produced in 1930 to the veritable empire it has become today, the Turin based group has seen its fame spread in the wake of automotive, nautical and aeronautical collaborations. While it has never ceased to diversity its activities, Pininfarina has, until now, not collaborated with the world of fine watchmaking.

Yet, there could be no better way of commemorating a jubilee of this importance than with a prestigious timepiece. What was needed therefore was to find, in the rarefied circles of luxury watch manufacturers, a brand whose history and identity were on a par with the prestige of Pininfarina and whose capacity to complete this complex project was assured.

Mr Pascal Raffy, the owner of BOVET and DIMIER 1738, Mr Paolo Pininfarina

During an initial meeting with Mr Pascal Raffy, the owner of BOVET and DIMIER 1738, Mr Paolo Pininfarina received the assurance of having found in BOVET the brand with which he would co-write a new chapter in history to magnify the legendary past of each House and proposing a shared vision of the future. In contrast to the notion of a private label, the concept was based from the very start on an active and equal partnership, marrying the specific strengths of the designer and watchmaker while taking into account the constraints of their respective activities. Those behind the project felt that this was the only way to achieve a perfect symbiosis of technical virtuosity, performance and beauty without compromise. Indeed it is this very philosophy that forges the praise and success of BOVET FLEURIER and Pininfarina, and the masterpiece: The OTTANTA®Tourbillon was born.

BREITLING New Wave Superocean

In the 1950s, at a time when it had already established itself as “official supplier to world aviation”, Breitling took on another challenge by setting out to conquer maritime depths. 1957 thus saw the launch of the famous Superocean, equipped with an ultra-readable dial, an armoured glass and a mono-hull case watertight to a depth of 200 meters (660 ft) – a remarkable feat at that time.

Originally designed to equip professional and military divers, and particularly special troops, this model soon gained a following among enthusiasts in the booming field of leisure diving. It subsequently gave rise to a whole line of diver‘s watches and chronographs, which have distinguished themselves over successive generations by their extreme sturdiness as well as their peerless performances – including water resistance to depths of 500, 1,500 and even 2,000 meters.

In 2010, Breitling gave a fresh impetus to this legendary collection by launching a Superocean with an entirely revamped design.

More youthful, more modern and more dynamic: while the new Superocean makes no compromises on the technical qualities that have consistently distinguished Breitling‘s diver‘s watches, it immediately catches the gaze by its stunning makeover. A fresh, sporting and original look that is bound to be equally at home in the ocean depths as on dry land.

The rubber-molded bezel is particularly pleasant to the touch and is enlivened by sloping numerals and a fluted pattern accentuating its technical nature and its adventurous vocation. The strikingly distinctive dial echoes this vigorous geometrical motif with applied hour-markers and numerals standing out clearly against a matt black base.

Water-resistant to 1,500 meters (5,000 ft), powered by a selfwinding chronometer-certified movement and available at a particularly competitive price, the new Superocean has exactly what it takes to break the waves and sail across changing trends while keeping several lengths ahead of the competition.

Blue, yellow, red, silver or black: the new Superocean offers a broad spectrum of colors to adorn the beveled inner bezel ring surrounding the Abyss black dial. This bright touch picked up by the tip of the seconds hand gives each model an especially strong personality.

A born diver, the new Superocean confidently faces underwater pressure down to a record depth of 1,500 meters (5,000 ft) thanks to the ultra-sturdy construction of its case, its screw-locked crown and its extremely sophisticated gasket system.

The rotating bezel is equipped with a unidirectional rotating device that avoids any inadvertent disturbance of the dive time during an actual diving operation. The case is fitted with lateral reinforcements effectively protecting the crown from the hazards involved in such underwater adventures.

The Superocean is also equipped with a safety valve at 10 o‘clock, an unmistakably characteristic feature of professional diving instruments which serves to balance out the differences in pressure inside and outside the watch. As soon as internal overpressure reaches about 3 bars, this valve automatically releases the helium stored up after time spent at great depths, thus preventing the case from exploding.

Extreme conditions call for extreme sturdiness: the Superocean is made from a steel alloy that is particularly resistant to corrosion in a saline environment. The case is formed from a metal bar subjected to a succession of high-pressure stamping and firing operations that have endowed it with peerless endurance. The bezel is slightly hollowed to show off the slightly raised numerals and hour-markers, and then coated in black rubber finely molding the brushed metal surface.

To provide wearers with a free-ranging variety of styles, the Superocean comes with a choice of three sturdy and comfortable wristbands ready to take on all manner of challenges. Originality and boldness are the keynotes for the Ocean Racer rubber strap punctuated with a line of round perforations reminiscent of 1960s racing straps; while the Professional bracelet with its three rows of oblique-cut links radiates a powerfully masculine look; and the new black rubber Diver Pro strap with its raised central ridge exudes a resolutely sporting appeal. The two rubber straps are equipped with a pushbutton-clasp featuring a folding mechanism that enables extremely precise adjustment, and a comfort-enhancing extension system that is adjustable in a few seconds.

Along with its unique appearance and the original style of its numerals, the new Superocean neglects none of the functional qualities that have earned the reputation of all Superocean models – and indeed of all Breitling wrist instruments. Readability, thanks to oversized hands and hour-markers accentuated by a luminescent Superluminova coating that is visible even in ocean darkness.

Security, provided by a thick sapphire crystal glare-proofed on both sides to avoid any glinting that might reduce readability in dim light. And last but not least, user friendliness, ensured by the knurled relief of the bezel that facilitates handling even with gloves – much like the large fluted crown. As befits an authentic Breitling, each and every detail has been designed to ensure a maximum of efficiency and optimal performances.

F.P. Journe Chronomètre à Resonance 10th Anniversary Edition

Chronomètre à Resonance is an emblematic timepiece that will significantly mark the research on precision made by master watchmaker François-Paul Journe. Introduced in 2001 for the first time, this unique watch represents one of the wildest challenges ever in the field of the mechanical watch. Utilising the natural resonance phenomenon, this exceptional mechanism revolutionized the classic standards of watch-making by offering an unequalled precision for a wristwatch.

In 2004, F.P. Journe introduced a second version for the Chronomètre à Résonance with the introduction of the first movement ever made in 18K rose gold, a specification that would from then on apply to all the precision chronometers of the brand.

In 2010, F.P.Journe added a new face to the renowned Chronomètre a Résonance, acclaimed by collectors and professionals of the brand worldwide. In an ultimate quest for precision, the dial at 9h now offers a time indication of 24 hours, defining precisely the hours of day and those of night. The dial at 3h in silver guilloche indicates the local time but can also be used for the same time zone. Hardly a small modification for the subtle 18K rose gold mechanism with its two perfectly synchronised beating mechanical hearts that are revealed through a sapphire crystal case-back: there is now a different gear transmission making the hands turn in 24 hours instead of 12 hours.

The Chronomètre a Résonance Anniversary Edition is available in two versions: one with a platinum case and white gold dial and the other all in red gold. The two dials in silver guilloche indicating the hours, minutes and seconds are secured on the 18K gold dial by polished steel rings, a patent by F.P.Journe.

The bezel design features a CNC machined grip and is intentionally designed to be 6mm high for ease of handling. The additional height also gives the illusion of depth for the dial, making the watch appear more sculptured.

The lugs are also designed to hug the wrist better and make for a much better fitting watch for smaller wrists. The Professional Diver is different to the other designs in that the bezel has numerals for 15-0, is accented in orange and has a more subdued GMT hand.

It is also bead blasted for a more robust appearance and comes with 2 link stainless steel bracelet with a diver’s extension. 50 pieces of this design has been produced and each watch is numbered. Suggested retail price for Bead Blasted model is USD 420 and the DLC Black model sells at USD 490.

moVas AG Diver

Whereas most MoVas watches highlight their legibility and clarity in the presentation of time, the AG diver does the complete opposite. It takes the form factor of a dive watch, but strips it of all its complexities to further highlight its true sculptural form.

Still the usual dive watch specs are covered, 120 click anti-clockwise unidirectional rotating bezel, crown protector with double crown locking mechanism, Superluminova C3 lume, anti-shock and large lume pip. Beyond that, the AG diver also features a sub sec, GMT, linear power reserve indicator and a 30atm rating, something exceptionally rare in Asian assembled dive watches.

The bezel design features a CNC machined grip and is intentionally designed to be 6mm high for ease of handling. The markings are kept to minimum, only showing the important countdown markers. The additional height also gives the illusion of depth for the dial, making the watch appear more three dimensional.

The lugs are also designed to hug the wrist better and make for a much better fitting watch for smaller wrists. The AG Diver is different to the other designs in that the bezel has countdown markers for 15-0, is monochrome and has a black on black sandwich dial. It is bead blasted for a more modern appearance and comes with our very own unique 2 link stainless steel bracelet with a diver’s extension. 50 pieces of this design has been produced and each watch is numbered.

OMEGA Speedmaster Broad Arrow Co-Axial, Steel Case

The OMEGA Speedmaster Broad Arrow Co-Axial watch is a fashionable interpretation of the historical Speedmaster chronograph that has been part of more than a hundred NASA missions including all six lunar landings.

The dial, available in black or silver, features a distinctive “Geneva Waves” pattern. The familiar chronograph counters, or sub-dials, are characterized by three applied rings which surround a unique “beehive” structure, giving the Speedmaster Broad Arrow Co-Axial its own personality. The sub-dial rings on the silver dial are blackened and those on the black dial are silver for a particularly appealing contrast. There is a date window at the 4:30 position on the dial.

The hour and minute hands, which are either blackened or rhodium-plated, are coated with white Super-LumiNova which makes them easy to read in all lighting conditions. The central chronograph hand has a red tip as do the hands of the sub-dials.

The 44.25 mm stainless steel case has the shape which has been associated with OMEGA Speedmasters for more than half a century. The Speedmaster Broad Arrow Co-Axial is presented with either a stainless steel bracelet or an integrated black alligator strap.

The Speedmaster Broad Arrow Co-Axial is powered by the exclusive OMEGA Co-Axial calibre 3313. The accuracy of the self-winding chronograph is independently confirmed by its status as a COSC-certified chronometer. The movement is equipped with OMEGA’s Co-Axial escapement on three levels. It delivers outstanding chronometric performance over a long period of time which increases service intervals and has allowed OMEGA to guarantee it for three years. It also allows the possibility of changing the hour hand independently of the minute and second hands – ideal for travelling between time zones. The movement is visible through the sapphire crystal case back.

The outstanding chronograph performance of the Broad Arrow Co-Axial is ensured by its column wheel chronograph mechanism. The watch is water resistant to 100 metres / 10 bar / 330 feet.

ROMAIN JEROME Steampunk Limited Edition

Swiss luxury watch brand ROMAIN JEROME adds one more model, named Steampunk, to its explosive and innovative collection of timepieces – DNA of famous legends .

The entirely dial-free Steampunk is housed within a 50 mm-diameter case providing unobstructed views of the sturdy, rigorously constructed mechanism that naturally commands respect and is held in place by four screwed-down pistons symbolising the RJ’s signature “X” motif.

ROMAIN JEROME Steampunk Limited Edition watch

Imbued with the Steampunk inspiration, the Roman XII and VI numerals are left “raw” and coloured according to the model. These vigorous aesthetic codes energise the upper bridge satin-brushed or circular-grained, depending on the model, by the watchmaking craftsmen at RJ – ROMAIN JEROME. Faithfully reflecting the inimitable Titanic-DNA style, the small seconds is distinguished by its stand-out propeller shape.

ROMAIN JEROME Steampunk Limited Edition watch

OMEGA Skeleton Central Tourbillon Co-Axial Platinum Limited Edition

Each model from Skeleton Central Tourbillon Co-Axial Platinum Limited Edition is handcrafted in OMEGA’s Cellule Haut de Gamme in Bienne by a select group of horologists.

In a Tourbillon movement, all of the main components responsible for the timepiece’s precision are assembled in a rotating cage. OMEGA is the only watchmaker ever to have created an automatic central Tourbillon. Its titanium cage rotates completely every 60 seconds, offsetting the effect of gravity on the performance of the watch.

The Skeleton Tourbillon Co-Axial Platinum Limited Edition combines the complex Tourbillon technology with dazzling design elements. The movement has a luxurious sun-brushed and circular graining finish with an anthracite galvanic processing; its bridges and mechanisms are hand polished. The rotor with its sapphire plate has been newly designed and is metallized with the words “Limited Edition” and the watch’s individual serial number (out of 18). The Skeleton Tourbillon Co-Axial Platinum Limited Edition is equipped with a Breguet balance spring.

The Central Tourbillon’s hands cannot be mounted on a central shaft in the conventional way. They are gold metallized onto sapphire crystal disks and propelled by gearing at the peripheries of the disks. The result is dramatic – they appear to float freely above the movement.

To make a skeleton version of the Central Tourbillon, the watchmaker begins by sawing away any non-essential material from the plates and bridges, then bevelling their edges. Unlike products from conventional workshops, each Tourbillon is the work of one watchmaker who spends up to 540 hours on the creation of the skeletonized version of the watch. This means that every Skeletonized Central Tourbillon is unique – no two are exactly alike.

Each watchmaker engraves his or her personal initials on the underside of the Tourbillon base to assure that all parts can be returned to their maker after they have been galvanized. When a Central Tourbillon is returned to OMEGA for servicing, it will be placed in the hands of the original watchmaker.

The outstanding chronometric performance of OMEGA’s exclusive Co-Axial calibre 2636 is enhanced by the state-of-the-industry escapement which has re-defined the way mechanical wristwatches are being made. The complex movement is assembled from 320 individual parts. The remarkable Central Tourbillon calibre is housed in a platinum case presented with a black alligator bracelet.

While the Skeletonized Central Tourbillon watches are accurate – each one is a COSC-certified chronometer – they are particularly valued for their beauty and the complexity of the Tourbillon mechanism. Every component in the movement and case is produced exclusively for the Central Tourbillons.

Only 18 pieces of this Skeletonized Tourbillon Co-Axial Platinum Limited Edition are produced.

Meccaniche Veloci SuperQuadro Podium

The SuperQuadro Podium from Meccaniche Veloci’s SuperQuadro collection is an elegant and refined chronograph with two different semi-squelette dials: white or black. The preciousness of the materials is mixed with the inborn passion for engines, for a chronograph characterized by unmistakable personality. The attention to details is expressed through refined elements such as the 18 kt pink gold round case that contains the mechanical automatic chronograph movement ETA (Valjoux) 7751 with screw-down crowns and chronograph buttons to ensure water resistance up to 5 atmospheres.

The movement, visible through the partially squelette dial, allows you to find the calendar at 12 o’clock. The visible movement has always seduced the true watch connoisseur who appreciates the complexity, technical merit and beauty dictated by perfect gears which can be admired through the semi-skeletal structure of the dial and the transparent case back. The fascinating transparency reveals the perfection of the movement, and arouses admiration for the delicate structure. The technology comes to life and proudly shows itself as a true work of art.
The name SuperQuadro refers to one of the most efficient types of engines where the diameter of the piston exceeds the race – the main feature of a high power, high rotation engine. The SuperQuadro is identified as a type of engine that reaches powers greater than normal engines. For this reason they are the preferred engines on the race track and suitable for experienced pilots. Meccaniche Veloci has created a “race” watch that interprets the “turn out” world of the two wheeler connecting it to the elegance and preciousness of gold.

Meccaniche Veloci Corsa Corta Titanium

Meccaniche Veloci, the Italian watch company which is now famous worldwide for its celebrated timepiece Quattro Valvole, revolutionises its collection range by introducing a new version that is completely different from the famous piston with four dials.

The Corsa Corta, a hand winding three hands, that partially reveals the movement enclosed inside the case inspired by the naked motorcycle. The fulcrum of the Corsa Corta collection is the single dial which comes in several colours and the feature of an opening next to the winding shaft to reveal the watch mechanism in pure naked style. A ETA 6497 (UNITAS) hand winding movement is assembled inside equipped with a screw crown to guarantee waterproofing up to 10 atmospheres The watch is available in several versions: one with a titanium case, also available in titanium with brown finishing, and one with a steel case with black finishing.
In order to create this watch, Meccaniche Veloci has combined aggressive materials and an innate passion for motorcycles. In fact, the name Corsa Corta (literally, short stroke) is inspired by a type of engine where the diameter of the piston is larger than the stroke, a main feature of high performances engines. The distinctive Meccaniche Veloci shapes have successfully interpreted a new piece of the world of high performance motors, in a unique object in the world of watches.
