Carl F. Bucherer Heritage Bicompax Annual Hometown Edition

Since it was founded in 1888, Carl F. Bucherer has been at home in Lucerne, one of Switzerland’s most picturesque cities. The new Heritage BiCompax Annual Hometown Edition pays a unique tribute to its home town Lucerne and 16 important cities in nine different countries.

Boasting its Swiss origin, the brand presents eight Heritage Bicompax Annual Hometown watch models to pay homage to some great places in its home country: Lucerne, Basel, Bern, Geneva, St. Gallen, Zermatt, and Zurich.

Two of Switzerland’s neighboring countries, Austria and France, are represented by Heritage BiCompax Annual Hometown Editions dedicated to Vienna and Paris, respectively.

Furthermore, models have also been created to honor two German cities, Berlin and Munich. Rounding out the offering are five other global capitals: Beijing, London, Mumbai, New York, and Tokyo.

What makes each watch so special is a compelling 3-D-look engraving on the case back’s sapphire crystal, which is dedicated to its specific hometown.

Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda GT Chronograph

The men’s Tonda GT Chronograph from the Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda GT Line is now available in new sportier versions: An 18ct rose gold model with chronograph and big date functions; and steel variant with chronograph and annual calendar functions. Both models are offered with two dial styles based on the color of subdials.

In both cases, the colour choices for the chronograph counters in Quantum Grey or Granata lend them a discreet yet very distinctive presence on the generous dial offering exemplary balance in the display of the functions.

The Tonda GT Chronograph with its substantial 42 mm diameter case in 18ct rose gold houses an integrated selfwinding chronograph calibre operating at a rate of 5 Hertz, i.e. 36,000 vibrations per hour, beneath the silver-toned guilloché dial with its “triangular hobnail” motif.

Patek Philippe Ref. 5326G-001 Annual Calendar Travel Time

In this new timepiece, Patek Philippe combines two of its outstanding patented complications: the Annual Calendar and the Travel Time system for the display of a second time zone.

The date display is synchronized with the respective local time. It simultaneously adjusts the date when the time zone is corrected. The new self-winding caliber 31-260 PS QA LU FUS 24H movement is endowed with eight patents.

For this model, the manufacture created a totally new Calatrava case. Its flanks are guilloched with the inimitable hobnail pattern and its dial is framed in the vintage genre inspired by old photo cameras. The same unique design also graces the Ref. 5226G-001 Calatrava, a watch without an additional complication powered by the self-winding caliber 26-330 S C movement.

For Patek Philippe, the technical perfection and aesthetic beauty of a timepiece have always had the same significance. The composition of the movement, case, and dial is always in the focus of the manufacture’s creations.

Patek Philippe Ref. 5326G-001 Annual Calendar Travel Time

With its self-winding movement that features two exclusive functions, its round Calatrava case with unique design and decorative features, and an inimitable dial, the new Ref. 5326G-00 Annual Calendar Travel Time delivers a perfect example of an approach that combines all facets of watchmaking artistry with balanced elegance.

In 1996, Patek Philippe merged all of its Genevan ateliers in Plan-les-Ouates under one roof and attracted attention with the launch of its patented Annual Calendar. It is a full calendar with day/date/month that only has to be manually corrected once a year on March 1.

To develop the system that automatically distinguishes between months with 30 and 31 days, the engineers designed an innovative mechanism based largely on wheels and pinions. Since then, the Annual Calendar has become a highlight among the manufacture’s complicated watches.

Today, it comes in a broad selection of ladies’ and men’s wristwatches and is also available in several self-winding flyback chronograph model versions. In the Ref. 5033, Patek Philippe even combined the Annual Calendar with a minute repeater movement.

It was followed in 1997 by a new technical launch, this time in the domain of travel timepieces. The exclusive Travel Time mechanism features a clutch based on a Patek Philippe patent granted in 1959. The ingenious system indicates a second time zone with a second hour hand from the center.

With two pushers in the left-hand case flank, it can be adjusted in one-hour increments in both directions without affecting the precise rate of the movement. Today, the Travel Time function is also available in various watch models, including the self-winding Ref. 5990 Flyback Chronograph or the Ref. 5520 Alarm Travel Time.

For the first time, Patek Philippe has extended its range of useful complications by combining the Annual Calendar and the Travel Time in one watch. The manufacture departed from the ultra-thin self-winding caliber 31-260 that had been launched in 2011 in the Ref. 5235 Annual Calendar Regulator (31-260 REG QA) and was then reworked in 2021 for the Ref. 5236 In-line Perpetual Calendar (31-260 PS QL).

Among the optimized features introduced in 2021, the new caliber 31-260 PS QA LU FUS 24H movement retains the 20% gain in barrel torque, the increased winding power of the minirotor thanks to the use of platinum, the frequency of 4 Hz (28,800 semi-oscillations per hour), and a reduction wheel that uncouples automatic winding when the watch is manually wound, which reduces wear. Energy-wise, the performance of the new movement was further improved by a minute wheel suspended between bearing jewels to increase efficiency.

Patek Philippe Ref. 5326G-001 Annual Calendar Travel Time

The connection between the Annual Calendar and the Travel Time function involved several technical challenges. The issue wasn’t just to accommodate both mechanisms in the same case. They had to interact in such a way that the displayed date corresponded with local time, hence the time at the location of the wearer of the watch.

And it may need to be adjusted when the time zone is corrected. Thus, in the new caliber 31-260 PS QA LU FUS 24H movement, the Annual Calendar is controlled by the Travel Time function and it is the local-time hour wheel that drives the calendar. Connoisseurs will be delighted to note that the principle of the Ref. 5531 World Time Minute Repeater (2017) has been retained. It is the first minute repeater that always sounds local time because the World Time mechanism controls the minute repeater.

For the new Ref. 5326G-001, Patek Philippe redesigned the Travel Time function as well. While the basic principle with two hour hands from the center is retained (solid hand for local time, pierced hand for home time), the two common time zone pushers in the left-hand case flank were replaced with a winding-stem setting mechanism that has three positions. It premiered in 2021 with the Aquanaut Luce Travel Time (Ref. 5269/200R-001).

The user merely needs to pull the crown to the middle position and then turn it clockwise or counterclockwise to adjust the local-time hour hand in one-hour increments in either direction without affecting the precise rate of the movement.

Aesthetic reasons favored the decision for this discrete crown setting system: Patek Philippe wanted a sleek design in the Calatrava style to emphasize the special motif on the case flanks. Setting the time in the home-time zone is done in the classic manner with the crown in the outermost position.

The caliber 31-260 PS QA LU FUS 24H movement has a stop-seconds mechanism that allows the time to be set with one-second accuracy. This function is only active while the crown is pulled to the outermost position. This prevents the movement from stopping when selecting a new time zone and preserves the rate accuracy of the movement. When the owner is not traveling, the two hour hands can be superposed with the crown and will then look like one hand.

To make sure the watch always displays the date that matches the respective local time, the engineers also had to modify the Annual Calendar mechanism.

In a conventional annual calendar, the display advance around midnight lasts about 90 minutes, so a date misalignment could occur if the time zone is adjusted in this time span. To assure that users see the correct date longer, Patek Philippe’s engineers shortened the display advance of the Annual Calendar discs by a factor of 5 to about 18 minutes.

Thanks to a cam system with partial toothing connected to the hour wheel, the 24-hour wheel executes its rotation in four phases instead of continuously: 180° rotation in 3 hours (toward midnight), 9 hours of standstill, 180° rotation in 3 hours (toward noon), 9 hours of standstill. This improves the coordination of the calendar switching phase with local time. But the word acceleration also suggests higher energy consumption.

To optimize the efficiency, precision, durability, safety, and operating convenience of the caliber 31-260 PS QA LU FUS 24H movement, the engineers developed several innovations that resulted in eight patent applications. For instance, these technical refinements make it possible to reduce the energy consumption and wear of certain components, to switch from the 30th to the 1st and from the 1st to the 30th without desynchronizing the calendar when adjusting the time zone, to prevent shifts and double jumps of the displays or avoid damaging parts of the movement if the moon phase, the month, or the day of the week are corrected in a time frame during which this is explicitly inadvisable.

The sapphire-crystal case back reveals the architecture of the caliber 31-260 PS QA LU FUS 24H movement with the elegantly cut and gently curved bridges. It affords a better view of the wheels of the base movement and the exquisite manually executed finissage that reflects the strict directives of the Patek Philippe Seal.

Patek Philippe Ref. 5326G-001 Annual Calendar Travel Time

The newly designed white-gold case has a diameter of 41 millimeters. With its slightly chamfered bezel and the polished, inclined lugs, it underscores the sleek and timeless elegance of the Calatrava design yet expresses its very own distinctive personality.

The case middle displays Patek Philippe’s signature hobnail motif along its entire circumference. The subtly shining pattern of tiny pyramids was showcased on the bezel of the famous Ref. 3919 Calatrava “Clous de Paris” in 1985; it was produced for over 20 years and became one of the best-known models of the watch world. In 2021, it experienced a strong comeback in the new, highly contemporary Ref. 6119 Calatrava “Clous de Paris” that is made in rose gold and white gold.

On the case of the Ref. 5326G-001 Annual Calendar Travel Time, it provides a new perspective of this very refined element of the Patek Philippe style. To allow the hobnail pattern to so elegantly adorn the complete flank of the caseband, Patek Philippe conceived an exceptional case design in which the strap lugs are attached to the case back.

The vintage-style dial is crafted entirely by Cadrans Flückiger in Saint-Imier, a dial specialist which has belonged to Patek Philippe since 2004.

Patek Philippe Ref. 5326G-001 Annual Calendar Travel Time

The dial is charcoal gray with a fine gradation to the periphery and has a slightly granular structure that is reminiscent of the cases of old photo cameras. The time of day is shown by applied Arabic numerals in white gold with beige luminous coatings.

The hours of local time and the minutes are displayed with luminous white-gold “Seringue” hands that with their long tips resemble syringes. A pierced “Seringue” hand indicates the hours of home time. The three apertures of the Annual Calendar – day of the week and month on one line at 12 o’clock, date at 6 o’clock – show easily legible black inscriptions on white backgrounds.

Two small round windows marked “LOCAL” at 8 o’clock and “HOME” at 4 o’clock are day/night indicators for local time and home time, respectively. This balanced arrangement is complemented by the subsidiary seconds that sweeps the moon-phase aperture at 6 o’clock.

The calendar indications can be adjusted with the aid of small correctors in the caseband located near the respective functions: day at 10, month at 2, date at 4 and moon phases at 8 o’clock. The vintage aspect is emphasized with a slightly raised box-design sapphire-crystal glass.

Patek Philippe Ref. 5326G-001 Annual Calendar Travel Time

The new Ref. 5326G-001 Annual Calendar Travel Time is delivered with two interchangeable straps, one beige calfskin with nubuck texture (original version), the other black calfskin with embossed textile finish and beige decorative stitching (additional strap).

The eight patents of the new caliber 31-260 PS QA LU FUS 24H movement

Time-setting with three crown positions (Swiss patent application CH 716383 A2): This time-setting system has a lever with three positions that can deactivate certain wheels as long as they are not performing any correction. This reduces energy consumption and wear of the respective wheels. The result is a gain for the balance amplitude (rate accuracy) and for reliability

Forward/backward mechanism for the Annual Calendar (European patent application EP 3776095 A1): This system relies mainly on the addition of a tooth and a spring on the month lever that allows the transition from the 30th to the 1st and from the 1st to the 30th without desynchronizing the date. Therefore, the user can easily switch the time zone forward or backward with the winding stem.

Linear time-zones spring (European patent EP 3650953 B1): This system consists of a star wheel and a jumper spring. It allows a strong torque increase between the local time hour wheel and the home time hour wheel and thus an acceleration of the date jumps despite the increase in energy consumption. It provides the user with more precise information.

Pivotable holding bridge (European patent applications EP 3714336 A1 and 070431/2021): This system keeps the day disc in position without the use of a center screw. To remove the disc, the watchmaker merely needs to pivot the bridge to the side. This releases the star without requiring the disassembly of the movement and without any modification of the settings. This timesaving and simplification is part of the improvements in watch maintenance.

Inertial delta (European patent application EP 3822711 A1): This mechanism offsets the inertia difference between a heavier and a lighter wheel. When the time zone is being corrected in either direction, it prevents an unintended forward or backward misalignment of the time displays (home time, local time, minutes). This increases the accuracy of the displays.

Braking mechanism for the date disc when a correction is made (European patent application EP 3882716 A1): This system with an additional spring (brake) is only active when the crown is pulled to the middle position. It prevents double jumps of the date disc if the user exerts too much force. It safeguards the greater reliability of the mechanism (amplitude gain and wear reduction).

Flexible correctors (European patent application 20205322.9): With a system of flexible leaf springs for switching protection purposes, this mechanism prevents the risk of a material failure when the user performs a correction during an unfavorable time window. This improves the reliability and longevity of the movement.

Featuring appliqué silver indices, the shaded black dial with velvety background features a generously-sized date window at 3 o’clock and a month indicator at 7 o’clock by means of a coloured red disc under the dial.

Enhanced with grey stitching, the corudra-look leather strap gives the GrandCliff Annual Calendar a final touch of the elegance of a classic and contemporary timepiece.

The GrandCliff Milady Annual Calendar watch comes with a steel case and diamond-set bezel. The finely wrought silver-plated dial bears a sunray decoration at 3 o’clock, complemented by a date window with black writing on a white background.

The month indicator at 7 o’clock uses a counter with heart-shaped cut-outs. The displays are read via a burgundy-coloured disc to match the leather strap, plus the seconds hand.

OMEGA Globemaster Annual Calendar Collection

OMEGA has added three new Annual Calendar watches to its refined Globemaster family.

First released in 2015, Globemaster the world’s first Master Chronometer certified collection. The new additions follow the classical styling of the series.

OMEGA Globemaster Annual Calendar Collection

Each new 41 mm model has received the signature details that fans will be familiar with, including a fluted bezel, as well as a pie-pan dial, inspired by the very first OMEGA Constellation watches released in 1952. On each facet, the months of the year have been elegantly written, while a Central Observatory medallion is set on the scratch-resistant sapphire crystal caseback – a tribute to OMEGA’s history of precision records and achievements in the early 20th century.

OMEGA Globemaster Annual Calendar Collection

Crafted in stainless steel, the first new model includes a sun-brushed green dial with 18K white gold used for the facetted hands, OMEGA logo, indexes, and Constellation star.

OMEGA Globemaster Annual Calendar Collection

The watch is set on a green leather strap and includes a hard metal (tungsten carbide) bezel for extra strength and resilience. Inside, the timepiece is powered by OMEGA’s Co-Axial Master Chronometer Annual Calendar Calibre 8922.

The second model is presented with a stainless steel case and a polished bezel in 18K Sedna Gold – OMEGA’s exclusive red gold alloy. This is the same gold used for the crown, as well as the details on the sun-brushed burgundy dial, including the facetted hands, OMEGA logo, indexes, and Constellation star.

OMEGA Globemaster Annual Calendar Collection

The design is completed by a burgundy leather strap, along with the OMEGA Co-Axial Master Chronometer Annual Calendar Calibre 8922.

OMEGA Globemaster Annual Calendar Collection

Among the three new annual calendars, the most luxurious version features 18K Sedna Gold case and bezel. Furthermore, OMEGA has used 18K Sedna Gold to create the dial, written with “Au750” to reference the material. Many of the dial details are made in the same gold, including the OMEGA logo, Constellation star, and the indexes.

Meanwhile, black onyx has been used for the index settings, and for the very first time at OMEGA, also for the hour and minute hands. Worn on a glossy black leather strap, this model is driven by the OMEGA Co-Axial Master Chronometer Annual Calendar Calibre 8923.

OMEGA Globemaster Co-Axial Master Chronometer Annual Calendar 41 mm 18K Sedna

All the new OMEGA Globemaster Annual Calendar watches are offered with a 5-year warranty and a Master Chronometer certification card.

Patek Philippe Self-winding Flyback Chronograph with Annual Calendar, Reference 5905/1A-001 (in steel with an integrated bracelet and a sunburst green dial)

Incorporating a self-winding flyback chronograph and a patented annual calendar, Patek Philippe Reference 5905 belongs to the brand’s Complications family.

Launched as a platinum model in 2015, then in rose gold in 2019, Reference 5905 is now available for first time in stainless steel. Fitted with a three-link integrated bracelet, it boasts an elegant and contemporary-styled sunburst olive green dial.

The dial ensures excellent legibility for the additional functions, with a central chronograph hand, a large 60-minute subdial at 6 o’clock and three day/date/month apertures arranged in an arc for instant reading of the Annual Calendar indications. There is also a discreet day/night indicator at 6 o’clock that is useful for ensuring accurate date setting.

The caliber CH 28-520 QA 24H remains faithful to the traditional column wheel for the transmission of chronograph commands. However, instead of a toothed-wheel horizontal clutch, it has a vertical disk-type clutch.

This modern technical solution causes almost no wear and tear, and the central chronograph seconds hand can also be used as a permanent (running) seconds display. The patented Annual Calendar automatically takes account of 30- and 31-day months, requiring only one correction per year, on March 1st. This movement is visible through the transparent sapphire caseback.

The polished steel case features a sophisticated construction with a concave bezel and recessed sides. The integrated steel bracelet is inspired by that of the Aquanaut Reference 5167/1A with its contrasting finishes (polished outer links and satin-finish inner links), while subtly distinguished from it by the underside of the bracelet and the edges which are polished, in line with the case. It is equipped with a patented Patek Philippe fold-over clasp secured by four independent catches.

The new Patek Philippe 5905/1A-001 is joining existing references 5905P-001 in platinum with a blue dial and 5905R-001 in rose gold with brown dial.

Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda PF

Celebrating its 25th anniversary, Parmigiani Fleurier presents Tonda PF, the latest and most forward-looking collection from the Swiss Maison. This new series belong to the brand’s popular Tonda collection. Fitted with new integrated bracelets, Tonda PF watches are built around the most iconic in-house movements.

Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda PF  case design

The Tonda PF series inducts a new brand signature. The PF logo appears at 12 o’clock, nestled in a vertical, oval, double-edged appliqué with extensive finishings, a harbinger of the level of care put into the collection.

Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda PF logo

The indices of each timepiece are set across two levels of the dial, while the Grain d’Orge guilloché dial pattern is the finest imaginable.

The inaugural Tonda PF collection is comprised of four models: Micro-Rotor, Chronograph, Annual Calendar with Retrograde Date and the limited edition Split Seconds Chronograph.

The Tonda PF Micro-Rotor is a slim, pared-down, high-end two-hander with platinum micro-rotor. The Tonda PF Chronograph features an almost flush dial and an integrated high frequency chronograph movement.

The Tonda PF Annual Calendar with retrograde date demonstrates how discretely and astutely advanced indications can be integrated into a pared-down design.

All three Tonda PF models mentioned above are available in steel with platinum hand-knurled bezel or entirely crafted in 18ct rose gold.

At the top of the range is a limited series of the Tonda PF Split Seconds Chronograph. To mark the 25th Anniversary of the manufacture, this timepiece is limited to 25 pieces. It features a dial, case and bracelet made of platinum 950, whose high frequency, open-worked, split seconds chronograph movement is built out of solid gold.

Tonda PF represents a mature, sartorial approach to watchmaking, where cloth is replaced by metal and weaving by dial pattern. The cutting and fitting of the shoulders and waistline take on the form of case and bracelet. These are entirely focused on silhouette, fluidity, proportions and taste.

Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda PF

Its specific hands are made of solid gold. Slim and long, they’re almost entirely openworked and of completely new design. The bezel, a direct heritage from the Tonda collection, features a sleek, polished part and another that’s been knurled by hand, and is crafted out of solid platinum 950 for the steel models.

Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda PF

Rather than using the same steel as the rest of the case and bracelet, Parmigiani Fleurier has elected to work with this highly precious metal. Not for the sake of exclusivity, but because it provides a better, shinier play with light and a more artisanal feeling once polished by hand.

Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda PF

The case band on all four references of the Tonda PF line is not straight, but slightly bassiné, i.e. wider near the bezel and narrower on the wrist. This provides the overall design with a sense of increased slimness. The surface is horizontal-satin-finished all around as is the upper surface of the lugs.

Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda PF

Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda PF Micro-Rotor

The Tonda PF Micro-Rotor measures 40 mm in diameter and owes its pure aesthetic to the uncluttered warm grey, matte guilloché dial.

It inaugurates a new version of Parmigiani Fleurier’s fundamental movement, the PF703. This ultra-slim, 3 mm thick engine is self-winding thanks to a full platinum micro-rotor. This diminutive oscillating weight allows the Tonda PF Micro-Rotor to measure a mere 7.8 mm on the wrist, ensuring comfort and elegance.

The timepiece displays hours, minutes and date. The date disc is the exact same color as the minute track’s, creating a consistent colorway.

Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda PF Chronograph

The 42 mm Tonda PF Chronograph houses the 5 Hz Caliber PF070, an integrated, high frequency, column wheel movement with small seconds and two registers. Integrating three counters on the Tonda PF Chronograph’s thinly guilloché dial demands finesse.

Parmigiani Fleurier maintains an almost flush surface by using thinly sandblasted minute track and counter outlines on the discrete blue dial.

Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda PF Annual Calendar

The 42 mm Tonda PF Annual Calendar transcends the aesthetics that had thus far been associated with Parmigiani Fleurier’s annual calendar movement.

Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda PF Annual Calendar - with polished and satin-finished medical stainless steel case and platinum hand-knurled bezel

Caliber PF339 presents a retrograde date, day, month and 122-year moonphase as visible in both hemispheres. As they come on top of the three usual time-telling hands, the very nature of the general design of the collection was at stake.

Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda PF Annual Calendar - with polished and satin-finished medical stainless steel case and platinum hand-knurled bezel

By pushing the date outwards onto the minute track and using discretely outlined counters on the warm grey guilloché dial, Parmigiani Fleurier has managed to balance the pared-down equilibrium of the collection’s design language and an elaborate layout.

Carl F. Bucherer Heritage BiCompax Annual Lucerne Limited Edition

This stunning new watch from Carl F. Bucherer takes inspiration from a classic car owned by the Bucherer family.

Carl F. Bucherer Heritage BiCompax Annual Lucerne Limited Edition

The Carl F. Bucherer limited-edition Heritage BiCompax Annual Lucerne was inspired by a classic Lincoln Cosmopolitan Town Sedan originally belonged to Carl Eduard Bucherer, the son of Carl Friedrich Bucherer.

Carl F. Bucherer Mr Jörg G. Bucherer Lincoln Cosmopolitan. (Carl F. Bucherer)

This classic car was sold in 1952 and changed hands several times over the years. In 2013, however, Jörg G. Bucherer, Carl Eduard’s son, was able to buy the family car and have it restored to its original glory. The new Heritage BiCompax Annual Lucerne watch features color details inspired by the restored automobile.

Carl F. Bucherer Heritage BiCompax Annual Lucerne Limited Edition

This remarkable watch, produced in an edition limited to 188 pieces, is a stunning celebration of the Bucherer family and its connection to classic cars. It also pays homage to the brand’s hometown of Lucerne.

Carl F. Bucherer Heritage BiCompax Annual Lucerne Limited Edition

The Carl F. Bucherer Heritage BiCompax Annual Lucerne has a 41 mm stainless steel case presented on a multi-link Milanese stainless steel bracelet with a folding clasp and a quick release system.

In addition, it is delivered with a calfskin leather strap with a folding clasp, which also has a quick release system, so the look can be changed quickly and easily according to the wearer’s choice of outfit and plans for the day.

Carl F. Bucherer Heritage BiCompax Annual Lucerne Limited Edition

The silver-colored dial on display through the double-domed sapphire crystal features light blue subdials with chronograph minutes and small seconds counters, which are complemented by a light blue ring with a tachymeter scale surrounding the dial.

Carl F. Bucherer Heritage BiCompax Annual Lucerne Limited Edition

The light blue recalls the color of Jörg G. Bucherer’s lovingly restored automobile. The watch’s dial also boasts a month aperture between 4 and 5 o’clock and a bold big date window just below 12 o’clock.

Carl F. Bucherer Heritage BiCompax Annual Lucerne Limited Edition

The watch is equipped with a modern self-winding annual calendar chronograph movement. The CFB Caliber 1972 has a power reserve of 42 hours, and its annual calendar complication accounts for different month lengths – 30 and 31 days – so the date only has to be corrected once a year, on March 1.

Ulysse Nardin Marine Torpilleur 175th Anniversary Edition

The Marine Torpilleur model, launched in 2017, is an archetype of Ulysse Nardin’s roots and history, joining the long line of illustrious Marine chronometers of the 19th century. Celebrating its 175th anniversary this year, the Swiss watch manufacture unveiled seven new models of the Marine Torpilleur during the Geneva Watch Days 2021.

These precision instruments all bear the codes of historical Marine Chronometers, such as the fluted bezel, roman numerals and the double counter. Each model, equipped with a silicium escapement, has a distinctive look and its own design, bearing the legacy and codes of the brand’s history.

Ulysse Nardin Marine Torpilleur 175th Anniversary Edition

Along with the Marine Torpilleur Blue Enamel – the icon of the collection – these include the Panda, the Moonphase (white and blue versions), the Annual Chronograph (white and blue versions), and the Tourbillon Grand Feu Enamel black in rose gold.

The above mentioned watches are produced in limited editions and bear the signature “Chronometry since 1846” at 6o’clock on the small seconds counter and a lightened minutes circle compared to the core collection.

Set with an Alligator leather strap, they are all compatible with the R-strap, made from recycled fishing fishing nets.

Ulysse Nardin Marine Torpilleur Blue Enamel

This new Marine Torpilleur watch has a magnificent Ulysse Nardin blue in-house enamelled dial made using the Grand Feu technique.

Ulysse Nardin Marine Torpilleur Blue Enamel

Thanks to the company’s collaboration with Donzé Cadrans, an independent enamelling workshop based in Le Locle, Switzerland, acquired by the manufacture in 2011, the manufacture has been able to constantly innovate and improve on this artisanal technique, which requires that over 90% of the process to be done by hand.

Ulysse Nardin Marine Torpilleur Blue Enamel

Ulysse Nardin masters this metier d’art, including the technique of Grand Feu enamel and cloisonné, in which a design is created by filling in a wire outline with colored enamels.

The Marine Torpilleur Blue Enamel stainless steel watch with a blue Grand Feu enamel dial is limited to 175 pieces.

Ulysse Nardin Marine Torpilleur Annual Chronograph

First produced from 1936 to 1980, the Ulysse Nardin Chronograph Marine Torpilleur pocket watches of that time featured the ability to read time down to 1/10th of a second.

Used during the 1936 Berlin Olympics, this precision transformed timekeeping. These chronographs, employed by automobile clubs, geodesic commissions, and scientists on expeditions, were delivered with official certification that guaranteed their extreme precision.

Ulysse Nardin Marine Torpilleur Annual Chronograph

The 2021 version includes a varnished white or a mat blue dial, and the UN-153 Manufacture movement, which is an evolution of the earlier UN-150 movement.

Ulysse Nardin Marine Torpilleur Annual Chronograph

The white dial is adorned with silvered, small counters and the annual calendar, which sits at 9o’clock just above the signature, verifying that Ulysse Nardin has been the leader in “Chronometry since 1846”.

Ulysse Nardin Marine Torpilleur Annual Chronograph

An invention by Ludwig Oechslin, the annual calendar system employed in the perpetual calendar model of 1996 has been improved, with all settings adjustable both forward and backward by using the crown, making it easy to set time and date.

Ulysse Nardin Marine Torpilleur Moonphase

Ulysse Nardin has been producing watches with moonphase display since the end of the 19th century. The moonphase is a complication that is at the heart of every astronomical instrument, as the phases of the moon control the tides, hence navigation.

LAURENT FERRIER École Annual Calendar Navy Limited Edition

Swiss master watchmaker LAURENT FERRIER has revisited his École Annual Calendar and created a new version with an attractive blue and orange color theme.

This new creation is available in a limited edition of only ten pieces, each of them numbered and engraved as “Série Atelier II”. The École- case of this timepiece is inspired by a watch made by Laurent during his studies at Watchmaking School.

The two-zone blue dial features a contrasting vertical satin-brushed centre, and circular satin-brushed hour ring. The École Annual Calendar Navy offers a more contemporary and sporting appearance compared to earlier versions. Typically associated with aviation or the navy, vibrant orange here adorns the 18K white gold hands, providing the timepiece with optimal legibility and a compelling look.

LAURENT FERRIER École Annual Calendar Navy Limited Edition

The time is indicated with LF iconic hands stamped in “Assegais” shape. A snailed small seconds dial placed at 6 o’clock gives character to the composition, while two bevelled apertures, positioned at 12 o’clock, display the day and the month. Finally, the date is indicated by a hand coated in white accompanied by vintage-inspired numerals, on the edge of the dial. The whole offers the full array of information required for daily life while remaining uncluttered and with no unnecessary adornment.

LAURENT FERRIER École Annual Calendar Navy Limited Edition

This watch is equipped with an annual calendar complication, which recognises months with 30 and 31 days, progressing automatically to the 1st of the month as appropriate. Manual adjustment is required only once a year, on the 1st of March. The day display is easily set through a pusher on the left side of the case, at 10 o’clock. All the other settings are easily controlled by a pull of the crown and rotating it accordingly, with no need for any tools.

The École case also pays tribute to period pocket watches, from the time when pioneer watchmakers began transforming them into wristwatches. The “Série Atelier II” will be the last reissue of this case, since LAURENT FERRIER has decided to realign his collection by focusing on iconic cases: the Classic, the Square and the Grand Sport. As always, the “ball”-shaped crown, the emblematic signature of the Maison, offers all the ease of a smooth and very pleasant winding.

LAURENT FERRIER École Annual Calendar Navy Limited Edition

The calibre 126.01 is at the heart of the “Série Atelier II”. This hand-wound movement incorporates a Swiss lever escapement and offers a power reserve of up to 80 hours. The power reserve indicator is placed on the movement and visible on the caseback. The long-blade ratchet, characteristic of LAURENT FERRIER manual movements, here has a polished bassiné finish, handcrafted in the brand’s own workshops.

LAURENT FERRIER École Annual Calendar Navy Limited Edition

Admirable through the sapphire crystal caseback, various finishing details of the movement represent the pinnacle of traditional fine watchmaking. Each bridge is adorned with spotless Côtes de Genève decoration, and ruthenium plating. The plate is embellished with beading while the edges and inner edges are chamfered and then polished by hand, just like the screw heads.

The LAURENT FERRIER École Annual Calendar Navy watch is presented on a hand-sewn bracelet in orange or navy Nubuck leather with a navy Alcantara lining.

The “Série Atelier II” is a limited edition of only ten pieces, available exclusively from Atelier LAURENT FERRIER on their website.

Carl F. Bucherer Heritage BiCompax Annual Limited Edition, New Model with Reversed Panda Dial

Equipped with an elegant chronograph and annual calendar, the Heritage BiCompax Annual by Carl F. Bucherer is a highly functional and utterly precise timepiece that celebrates the design and savoir faire of the early 1950s, harmoniously merging vintage charm with “Made of Lucerne” watchmaking art.

Now, two years after the original debut in 2019, the Lucerne-based watchmaker introduces a new contrasting version of its popular Heritage BiCompax Annual. Limited to only 888 pieces, this new version from the Heritage collection has a deep-black dial with silver-colored totalizators.

Carl F. Bucherer Heritage BiCompax Annual Limited Edition, New Model with Reversed Panda Dial

The Heritage collection is an ode to Carl F. Bucherer’s rich history and its roots in Lucerne, in the heart of Switzerland. In this exclusive line of timepieces that are only manufactured in limited editions, unique design and traditional craftsmanship meet sophisticated complications and the finest materials. The launch of the Heritage Tourbillon Double Peripheral in rose gold in New York in 2018 was the kick start for the Heritage collection.

In 2019, Carl F. Bucherer introduced the Heritage BiCompax Annual watch in two versions: an elegant bi-colour variant (rose gold + stainless steel) and a sporty model in stainless steel with the “panda design.”

Carl F. Bucherer Heritage BiCompax Annual Limited Edition, New Model with Reversed Panda Dial

Again, an archival piece dating back to circa 1950 served as inspiration for the Heritage BiCompax. The elegant chronograph combines the vintage flair of the watch that inspired it with contemporary features, such as a 41 mm stainless-steel case. The new edition of course also features the BiCompax dial design of its retro predecessor: two symmetrically arranged silver-colored chronograph counters are positioned on the horizontal central axis on the deep-black galvanized dial, framed by a tachymeter scale.

Carl F. Bucherer Heritage BiCompax Annual Limited Edition, New Model with Reversed Panda Dial

Thereby, the new edition of the Heritage BiCompax reverses the color concept of the first stainless-steel model, which featured a white dial and black totalizators, also referred to as the “panda design,” making the new timepiece a so-called “reversed panda.”

The black calfskin leather strap with silver-colored stitching perfectly complements the design of the dial. The new timepiece is also available on a sporty and comfortable rubber strap. The new Heritage BiCompax Annual is again limited to 888 pieces, as a nod to Carl F. Bucherer’s founding year of 1888.

Carl F. Bucherer Heritage BiCompax Annual Limited Edition, New Model with Reversed Panda Dial

The Heritage BiCompax Annual is powered by an ultramodern automatic movement (The CFB 1972 caliber) with 42 hours of power reserve. The new version also features an annual calendar and a large date display that takes the different month lengths – 28, 30, and 31 days – into account, which means it would only need to be corrected during a leap year.

Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda GT Line

Parmigiani Fleurier expands its popular Tonda collection by adding a sportier, everyday watch model, the new Tonda GT line.

Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda GT Line

Parmigiani Fleurier’s dress watches have long been revered among collectors for their elegance and fine craftsmanship, the result of its in-house manufacturing prowess combined with Michel Parmigiani’s master watchmaking talent and commitment to excellence. This commitment continues in this new introduction, a line designed to appeal to the modern gentleman looking for a watch he can wear on every occasion.

Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda GT Line

The new Tonda GT Line offers three distinct sporty, yet elegant timepieces in polished and satin-finished stainless steel or 18-ct rose gold, embodying Parmigiani’s years of expertise and design ethos following golden ratio parameters.

Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda GT Line

The case shape is inspired by the Tonda Chronor watch, which was awarded the Chronograph Watch Prize from the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève in 2017. Parmigiani Fleurier worked with watch designer, Dino Modolo, to reinterpret its design codes, resulting in a reimagined case with updated lugs and an integrated bracelet ergonomically designed for ultimate comfort.

Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda GT Line

Its fluted bezel recalls another Parmigiani Fleurier icon- the Toric collection- and the dials are finished with traditional “cloutriangulaire” guilloché. All watches are available on a polished and satin-finished bracelet or on a rubber strap with a motif that recalls the finishing on the dial.

Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda GT Line

The Tondagraph GT is powered by the PF043 automatic caliber and combines two useful complications- an annual calendar and a chronograph.

Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda GT Line

The dial displays a wealth of information and remains legible: it has delta-shaped hands with black luminescent coating indicating hours and minutes, a small second, two subdials for the chronograph function, and a big date aperture at 12 o’clock. To draw attention to the annual calendar function, the date and month are displayed in a vibrant orange color.

Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda GT Line

This impressive watch is water resistant to 100m, has a screw-down crown, a 45-hour power reserve, and is finely finished with Côtes de Genève stripes visible through the open caseback. The Tondagraph GT is limited to 200 pieces.

Two additional models will accompany this new launch, the Tonda GT Black and the Tonda GT Rose Gold Blue. The beauty of the guilloche decoration shines through on these dials, which have a big date aperture at 12 o’clock and a small seconds subdial at 6 o’clock.

Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda GT Line

They are powered by the PF044 automatic movement, which is finely finished, has a power reserve of 45 hours, and is water resistant to 100m via a screw-down crown.

The 18-ct rose-gold model is particularly stunning when paired with its sporty blue rubber strap matching the dial and the Tonda GT Steel easily transforms into a sportier watch when paired with its black rubber strap.

Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda GT Line

The Tonda GT Rose Gold Blue is limited to 150 pieces, while the steel model is limited to 250 pieces.

F.P.Journe Astronomic Souveraine Grand Complication Watch

After the success of the prototype’s sale at the Only Watch auction, F.P.Journe presents the final version: Astronomic Souveraine. It is a grand complication watch in a steel case, housing 18 complications including tourbillon and minute repeater. This exceptional creation was unveiled on 14 November in Tokyo at first flagship boutique of the brand.

The Astronomic Blue, the prototype of this grand complication, developed specifically for Only Watch 2019 Charity auction, was sold for the amount of CHF 1’800’000.-, a new world record for an F.P.Journe watch.

The 18 carat rose Gold movement of the Astronomic Souveraine is totally novel and very finely decorated. The white Gold dial, whose sub-dials are embellished with clou de Paris decoration, and the moon phases, with a hyper realistic moon that was traced from a NASA photograph.

At 3, there is the mean time (or civil time) dial, with a blue hand indicating a second time zone. At 9, there is the sidereal time dial, which allows the observation of the stars. Next to it, the mean time seconds are shown on a disc. Between the two are the central minutes and the power reserve indication, which remains optimal up to 40 h. Above all this is a blue aperture showing the sunrise and sunset. Here, metal shutters lengthen or shorten the days.

On the reverse there is the equation of time and a full annual calendar encircled by the signs of the zodiac. It is on this side that the dance of the tourbillon may be admired. In all, this watch, which also strikes the hours, the quarters and the minutes, possesses 18 functions and complications.

It is made up of 758 components, in addition to the case. However, the case is no larger than 44 mm in diameter and 13.80 mm thick. Only a very few pieces of the Astronomic Souveraine will be produced each year.

Kennsen Annual Calendar Chronograph

This innovative mechanical timepiece from Swiss luxury watch brand KENNSEN incorporates two popular horological complications: Chronograph and Annual Calendar.

Despite the complexity involved in such complication watches, Kennsen’s Annual Calendar Chronograph is simple to use, thanks to an innovative mechanism that overcomes the difficulty of building an entirely new complication in the confines of the chronograph’s reduced space.

Kennsen Annual Calendar Chronograph

Designed in-house, Kennsen’s Annual Calendar mechanism drives a date indicator at 3 o’clock, a month indicator, which is in the same plane as the date and on the left of the central axis, and a legible but unobtrusive Day/Night display positioned in the minute counter subdial to aid adjustment.

For this timepiece, KENNSEN has developed a co-axial calendar system in which the month wheel and display are co-axial to a special pipe built around the central axis of the watch. The month wheel itself then acts as an axis around which the co-axial year wheel turns. The year wheel governs the system though a unique internal tooth.

Kennsen Annual Calendar Chronograph

Protected by two patents, this new design concept ensures simplicity, low part count, svelte dimensions and very efficient performance. The svelte dimensions (30.0mm in diameter and 1.3mm in height) ensure that the watch is comfortable to wear. The few moving parts ensure efficient performance. The calendar is easily adjustable by the crown and ensures ease of use.

Kennsen Annual Calendar Chronograph is equipped with the Calibre KV775C, the in-house movement based on the iconic Valjoux 7750 self-winding movement.

The movement is adjusted to a tolerance up to -2 to +6 seconds per day and in five positions. The movement is finely decorated with Côtes-de-Genève and snailing on the plates. Movement screws have been replaced to complement these finishes. The matt and anthracite finishing of the rotor adds an interesting counterpoint to the plates.

The Day/Night display complication shows whether the watch is synchronised to a.m. (white) or p.m. (dark). It insures that the watch is set correctly, thus avoiding the irritation of a date change at noon. Referencing the Day/Night display before a manual date adjustment can also prevent damage to the watch as manual date adjustments should not be undertaken during the dark night hours when the gears are in mesh.

Designed in house by Kennsen and manufactured in Switzerland by Victorinox Company, the watch case measures 42mm diameter; 49mm across the lugs; 13.4mm height. Crafted from superior quality of stainless steel (316L1.4435 grade), the watch case ensures ease of use while wrist-friendly lugs provide a comfortable and secure fit. The case has a water-resistance of 50 metres / 165 feet.

The scratch-resistant sapphire crystal in the case-back gives a view of the movement and rotor. Each watch is individually numbered. The pusher sleeves are a rarely seen touch and are horizontally brushed by hand.

While the front and back bezels are hand-polished, a horizontal brushing (also by hand) has been given to the case-middle. The case chamfers provide a sporty yet elegant feel.

Manufactured in Porrentruy in Switzerland, the large and well proportioned dials come in either black or Kennsen Palladium shades. The special galvanic treatment gives the dials their depth and changing light conditions bring different nuances to the dials.

The indices are applied, and the dial itself has three levels with circular grain and matt finishing. The outer ring has a telemeter scale in miles and kilometres. The useful Day/Night display is positioned inside the minute counter. The date is at 3 o’clock and the month to the left of the main axis.

The Kennsen Annual Calendar Chronograph is fitted with a custom made and top grade alligator leather strap hand-crafted by Hirsch. Each Kennsen watch is delivered in a hand-made leather wallet.

Patek Philippe Annual Calendar with Flyback Chronograph Ref. 5905R-001, Rose Gold Case and Brown Sunburst Dial

Launched in platinum in 2015, Ref. 5905 unites two Patek Philippe complications beloved of connoisseurs: a self-winding flyback chronograph and a patented Annual Calendar.

The manufacture is now enriching its collection with a new version of this model in a rose gold case with a brown sunburst dial shading gently to black at the periphery.

The dial’s design combines the technical look of an instrument for measuring short times with the timeless elegance of a Patek Philippe.

It features three-face Dauphine hour and minute hands with a luminescent coating, rose-gold applied hour-markers, and luminous dots marking the five-minute points.

The sandblasted sweep seconds-hand counts the seconds for the chronograph, while the large subsidiary dial at 6 o’clock totalizes the minutes from 1 to 60. The three apertures for the day, the date and the month are arranged along an arc with a day/ night indicator.

Within this timepiece beats the caliber CH 28-520 QA 24H selfwinding movement, comprising 402 parts.

Patek Philippe Annual Calendar with Flyback Chronograph Ref. 5905R-001, Rose Gold Case and Brown Sunburst Dial

The Annual Calendar, based on the Patek Philippe patent of 1996, automatically takes account of months of 30 and 31 days and requires correction only once a year, on March 1st.

Patek Philippe Annual Calendar with Flyback Chronograph Ref. 5905R-001, Rose Gold Case and Brown Sunburst Dial

The chronograph remains true to the traditional column wheel for transmission of the start, stop and reset commands. But instead of the horizontal wheel clutch it uses a vertical disk clutch.

Since this solution is virtually friction-free, the center chronograph hand can also serve as a permanently running seconds hand without affecting the rate accuracy of the movement. That is why Patek Philippe decided not to include the usual small seconds dial in its self-winding chronograph models.

The new Ref. 5905R-001 takes its place alongside the existing models in platinum with blue or black dials (references 5905P-010 and 5905P-001).

Patek Philippe Nautilus Annual Calendar with Moon Phases Ref. 5726/1A-014, Steel Case and Blue Dial

In 2010, Patek Philippe united sporting spirit and technical sophistication in a Nautilus watch for men endowed with an Annual Calendar, a moon-phase display and a 24-hour indicator. This Ref. 5726A in steel on a leather strap has since been joined by others with a steel bracelet.

Now the manufacture is reinterpreting that steel-bracelet version by fitting it with an elegant blue dial (the color on the original Nautilus model of 1976). The horizontal embossing and the subtle shading from blue to black at the dial’s periphery create a powerful but refined decor that complements the sheen of the steel.

The hours and minutes are indicated with applied white-gold hour markers and hands highlighted with a luminescent coating, accompanied by a slender sweep seconds hand.
