Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control Calendar & Master Control Chronograph Calendar (new models)

Jaeger-LeCoultre enriches the Master Control collection by introducing new interpretations of the signature complications in its collection — the Master Control Calendar and the Master Control Chronograph Calendar.

Now with interchangeable steel bracelets that are compatible with other strap systems of Jaeger-LeCoultre, the Master Control is more versatile than ever.

2022 marks the 30 years of the Master Control, launched in 1992 as a demonstration of the Maison’s commitment to the very highest levels of watchmaking excellence. The Master Control marked the beginning of the 1000 Hours Control system of internal quality standards at Jaeger-LeCoultre, a system subsequently incorporated throughout the full range of watches and which is now emblematic of the Maison’s fine watchmaking promise to its customers.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control Chronograph Calendar with interchangeable bracelets

Two new Master Control models, in stainless steel with interchangeable bracelets, bring the calendar display and chronograph function more fully into contemporary everyday life, recognising the prominence of active lifestyles in the world today.

The silver sunray-brushed dial features a tone-on-tone aesthetic, maintaining the essential design codes of the Master Control such as dauphine hands and Arabic numerals intercut with dart hour markers.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control Date & Master Control Calendar (new blue dial versions)

Jaeger-LeCoultre has expanded the Master Control collection by introducing new blue-dial interpretations of Master Control Date & Master Control Calendar models. These new versions feature elegant deep-blue dials with a sunray-brushed finish.

2022 marks the 30 years of the Master Control, launched in 1992 as a demonstration of the Maison’s commitment to the very highest levels of watchmaking excellence.

The Master Control marked the beginning of the 1000 Hours Control system of internal quality standards at Jaeger-LeCoultre, a system subsequently incorporated throughout the full range of watches and which is now emblematic of the Maison’s fine watchmaking promise to its customers.

In full alignment with this unceasing commitment to timeless quality that maintains Jaeger-LeCoultre at the forefront of 21st-century horological craft, the Master Control collection has been enriched with two stainless steel models with sunray-finished dials in a refined shade of blue.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control Date and Master Control Calendar (new blue dial versions)

All the essential codes of the Master Collection can be found in the Master Control Date and the Master Control Calendar.

These include features such as the combination of applied Arabic numerals with faceted dart markers for the hours, faceted dauphine hour and minute hands, and bevelled case lugs that curve towards the strap attachment point. The slim case bezels bring an open feel to the 40mm cases, symbolic of the inherent versatility in this case diameter.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control Date new blue dial version

Legibility and readability are emphasised, using minute scales in a subtly contrasting lighter blue, with distinct minute divisions intercut with dot markers in Super-LumiNova® for an intuitive and precise indication of the time.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control Date new blue dial version

With the Master Control Calendar, the jumping date indication makes a welcome reappearance. A slender date hand extends outwards from the centre of the dial, ending in a red-lacquered Jaeger-LeCoultre logograph that points towards the date on the outer periphery of the dial.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control Calendar new blue dial version

For optimal reading of the dual-display moon phase and small seconds subdial, the date hand makes a 90° jump between the 15th and 16th day of each month. This ensures that the moon phase and small seconds subdial is never bisected by the date hand; a small yet effective detail that increases the design clarity of the Master Control Calendar.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control Calendar new blue dial version

To complete the overall harmonious aspect of these two new models, the date ring of the Master Control Date is also in blue, with white transferred Arabic numerals.

The white-on-blue day and month indications of the Master Control Calendar provide similar aesthetic integration with the rest of the watch, with additional visual refinement found in the snailed finish of the small seconds subdial. The upper half of the subdial reveals the moonphase disc decorated with a star-studded background.

Both the Master Control Date and the Master Control Calendar come with matching blue straps in calf leather. The straps are trimmed in complementary blue stitching that continues across the strap attachment point for a touch of vintage allure.

These straps have been fitted with a quick-change mechanism, allowing the wearer to easily switch between a range of straps for a completely different look.

Within these new models beats two Jaeger-LeCoultre in-house automatic movements. The calibre 899 of the Master Control Date and the calibre 866 of the Master Control Calendar have 70 hours of power reserve, bringing close to three days of running autonomy even when they are not being worn.

The opening onto the movement structure is perfectly visible on both sides of the watch and features an anthracite grey colour achieved by NAC treatment.

Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Complete Calendar Openface Limited Edition

Surrounded by a slate grey opaline flange on which a central hand points to the date, the upper part of the sapphire crystal dial features a likewise slate grey guilloché segment as well as applied gold hour-markers.

The resulting three-part dial overlooks the sapphire discs providing an aperture-type display of the days and months. The moon-phase disc, with its two realistic transferred depictions of Earth’s satellite, is also covered by a translucent sapphire mask. This airy construction provides a chance to admire the various movement components, including the bridges and mainplate featuring an original vertical upright finish on the front.

Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Complete Calendar Openface Limited Edition

The “openface” design highlights the technical nature of the Traditionnelle complete calendar openface watch. This complication, also known as the triple calendar, indicates the date, day and month, complemented on these models by a moon phase.

Water-resistant to 30 metres, these two Traditionnelle complete calendar openface models are fitted with a calfskin-lined grey alligator strap secured by a pink or white gold pin buckle.

Featuring a velvet-finish slate grey dial framed by an 18K white gold case, the new Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Complete Calendar watch perpetuates the spirit of 18th century Geneva fine watchmaking.

With its stepped round case and lugs, fluted caseback and railway minute-track swept over by Dauphine-style hours and minutes hands, this classically styled contemporary wristwatch retains Vacheron Constantin’s signature touch of originality in the display of the calendar indications. The day and month windows are positioned around the rim of the dial, while the date is shown by a dedicated pointer. This layout particularly highlights a precision moon phase located at 6 o’clock.

Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Complete Calendar (with 18K white gold case and velvet-finish slate grey dial)

 

Already available in 18K pink gold, the new Traditionnelle complete calendar watch is now presented in a 41 mm case in 18K white gold and features a velvet-finish slate grey dial.

The Traditionnelle complete calendar watch is powered by Calibre 2460 QCL/1. This type of triple-display calendar represents a complication that is an integral part of the Manufacture’s heritage. Calibre 2460 QCL/1 with its 308 components is an evolved version of Calibre 2450, the first self-winding movement entirely designed and developed by Vacheron Constantin.

Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Complete Calendar (with 18K white gold case and velvet-finish slate grey dial)

Equipped with a stop-seconds mechanism, it beats at a rate of 28,800 vibrations per hour, has a 40-hour power reserve and – in addition to its triple calendar indications – drives a precision moon phase requiring only one correction every 122 years.

Carl F. Bucherer Adamavi Full Calendar

This new timepiece from Carl F. Bucherer’s Adamavi line combines a practical full calendar with arguably the most charismatic complication in watchmaking: the moon phase. The new model is available in two superb versions, either with a leather strap or metal bracelet.

Carl F. Bucherer Adamavi Full Calendar

The 39 mm stainless steel case houses a black or silver dial. The vertical satin finish of the dial and slender bar indices in a warm gold tone give this dress watch a modern, understated look. This is also reflected in the clear, user-friendly structure of the calendar.

Carl F. Bucherer Adamavi Full Calendar

A ring of Arabic numerals milled into the center of the dial, along which a distinctive black or white hand moves, shows the date to the viewer, while windows at 10 o’clock and 2 o’clock indicate the day of the week and the month. An exceptional striking feature is the stylish moon phase at 6 o’clock, on which a golden moon moves across a starry night sky.

Carl F. Bucherer Adamavi Full Calendar

The new timepiece is optionally available with a sporty and elegant metal bracelet with stainless steel folding clasp or alternatively with an alligator leather strap in black or midnight blue.

Carl F. Bucherer Adamavi Full Calendar

The Adamavi FullCalendar watch is both practical and easy to read. It is easy to individually set the three displays – including the date, day of the week and month – using the three correctors embedded in the case. The moon phase display at 6 o’clock can also be easily set using a corrector located at 8 o’clock.

Carl F. Bucherer Adamavi Full Calendar

The Adamavi FullCalendar houses the rugged CFB 1966 automatic movement, which keeps the watch and its features running precisely for 42 long hours without external influence.

Depancel [Re]naissance 24H

This automatic timepiece pays tribute to an iconic car manufactured by the French luxury automobile and Racecar Company Delage.

Depancel Renaissance 24H Automatic watch

The [Re]naissance collection by French watch brand by Depancel is a befitting tribute to the Delage D8 120S car which made its first appearance at the 1936 Paris Motor Show.

Depancel Renaissance 24H Automatic watch

The watch comes with a polished, brushed stainless steel case that faithfully reproduces the lines of the prominent radiator grill on the legendary Coupé. The grooved dial takes this novel interpretation even further and highlights the display of four complications: day, month, date and 24H function.

Depancel Renaissance 24H Automatic watch

The watch houses an automatic Miyota 9120 movement with a power reserve of 40 hours. Featuring a custom decorated rotor, this movement can be admired through the sapphire crystal case-back.

Depancel Renaissance 24H Automatic watch

The 316L stainless steel case, which is inspired by the shape of Delage D8’s radiator grill, measures 37mm x 42mm and has a thickness of 12.8mm. The [Re]naissance 24H is available in Silvery steel, Gun metal, Pink gold PVD and Full black case versions. Each version is limited to 1936 pieces.

Depancel Renaissance 24H Automatic watch

The Delage D8 was an eight-cylinder luxury car with a top speed of 160 km/h, an amazing feat during those times. The legendary French car manufacture Delage was founded in 1905 by Louis Delage in Levallois-Perret near Paris. In 1935, the company was acquired by Delahaye, a Tours (France) based car manufacture founded by Émile Delahaye in 1894.

Due to the depressed economic conditions of post-war France, both car brands (Delage & Delahaye) ceased their operations in 1953.

In November 2019, after more than six decades, Les Amis de Delage (the association formed in 1956) and entrepreneur Laurent Tapie  jointly announced to re-launch this iconic car brand. The newly formed Delage Automobiles has also announced their plan to produce Delage D12, a brand new hybrid supercar to be manufactured in France.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control Collection New Edition: Master Control Calendar, Master Control Chronograph Calendar, Master Control Date and Master Control Geographic

Jaeger-LeCoultre re-launches its Master Control collection with new models drawing inspiration from the classic round watches of the 1950s, such as the Futurematic, PowerMatic and Memovox models, and adding a dash of 21st-century flair.

Designed for the urban sophisticate, every element of the Master Control line has been restyled. Jaeger-LeCoultre’s designers have harnessed and modernised the Maison’s classical design codes to create a refined yet entirely contemporary aesthetic that highlights the collection’s complications. A new case design heralds the introduction of a new pink gold alloy – Le Grand Rose gold®.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control Calendar
Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control Calendar

When launched in 1992, the Master Control line was the first of Jaeger-LeCoultre’s collections to benefit from its pioneering ‘1000 Hours Control’ certification – which inspired the collection’s name. A demanding process that tests the entire cased-up watch (not just its movement), it set a new benchmark when introduced and has continually evolved in response to technological advances, to remain one of the watch industry’s most stringent testing protocols.

Naturally, with this background and the Maison’s long history of technical innovation, the relaunch of Master Control is not simply a stylistic exercise. The Manufacture’s engineers have comprehensively revised and updated all of the movements, increasing power reserves to as much as 70 hours and enhancing overall performance and reliability. Like all Jaeger-LeCoultre timepieces, the Master Control watches carry an 8-year warranty in addition to the 1,000 Hours Control certification.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control Chronograph Calendar
Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control Chronograph Calendar

With its 40-millimetre diameter, outwardly sloping bezel and dynamically curved lugs, the new Master Control case exudes a relaxed and understated elegance – timeless yet absolutely contemporary. Satin-brushing on the case-sides is complemented by the polished bezel, crowns and lugs. Refined details abound, including bas-relief engravings on the back bezel and a sapphire crystal case-back to reveal the finely finished and decorated movements.

On the dials, Jaeger-LeCoultre’s designers have reinterpreted the Maison’s classical codes in a streamlined and modern style, in order to highlight each model’s complications. The applied indexes add refinement, their elongated triangular shape echoed by the Dauphine hands. Uniting the collection, sunray brushing animates the silvery-white background colour, a blue central seconds hand adds a subtle pop of colour and, according to the model, blued subdial hands further accentuate the complications.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control Date
Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control Date

The versatility of the new collection is underlined by the choice of two case materials – steel and Le Grand Rose gold®. Seen for the first time in the new Master Control line, the new pink gold alloy has a remarkable sheen and depth of colour. The addition of palladium to the metal’s proprietary formula (the exact details of which remain a closely guarded secret) guards against oxidation and ensures that the radiant colour will not fade over the years.

The straps, too, have been re-worked for the new collection. To complement the timeless informality of the steel cases, Jaeger-LeCoultre’s designers have chosen the soft, matt finish of Novonappa® calf leather in tan. Produced by the finest tannery in France, through a vegetable-based tanning process that retains the natural variations of the hides, Novonappa gains a distinctive patina over time.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control Geographic
Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control Geographic

Thanks to a Presto Spring lug attachment and a simple clip for removing and refitting the deployant buckle, the Novonappa straps can be quickly changed, without the need for any tool. Classical alligator leather in black or chocolate brown lends a more formal allure to the Le Grand Rose gold® cases – which can also be fitted with Novonappa straps if preferred.

With the goal of improving reliability, power reserve and long-term performance, Jaeger-LeCoultre’s engineers have comprehensively revised and re-engineered Calibre 899, the high-performing pillar of the Master Control collection. The improvements, which have been incorporated into the entire range of Master Control calibres, include a silicon escapement, a redesigned barrel and various energy-saving enhancements.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control Calendar

In the 1940s and ’50s Jaeger-LeCoultre was renowned for its triple calendar moon-phase movements, and the new Master Control Calendar brings that tradition into the 21st century. With a case measuring 40mm x 10.95mm, it is offered in either steel or Le Grand Rose gold®.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control Calendar

The finely balanced classical layout of the dial is retained, with the dates marked around the periphery, indicated by a red-tipped hand, the days and months displayed in the upper part of the dial, and the moon-phase set within the small seconds subdial in the lower part.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control Calendar

But there is a fresh new twist to the date display: as well as updating Calibre 866 with the same performance-enhancing improvements made to cal.899, Jaeger-LeCoultre’s engineers have added a delightful new jumping complication.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control Calendar-calibre-866

Every month, the date hand makes a 90-degree leap from the 15th to the 16th, in order not to obscure the moon-phase display.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control Chronograph Calendar

The headline model of the new Master Control collection features a newly developed movement, Calibre 759, which combines a chronograph with a triple calendar display and a moon-phase.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control Chronograph Calendar

Brought together for the first time in a Jaeger-LeCoultre timepiece, this alliance of complications evokes the ancient links between watchmaking and astronomy. The new Calibre 759 features a column-wheel chronograph with a vertical clutch, a moon-phase indicator, and a 65-hour power reserve.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control Chronograph Calendar-calibre-759

With a balanced dial layout that combines the familiarity of two classical complications – a triple calendar and a bi-compax chronograph – Jaeger-LeCoultre’s designers have made the reading of the displays straightforward and intuitive, despite the complexity of the information shown.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control Chronograph Calendar

The 30-minute chronograph counter at 3 o’clock is balanced by the running seconds subdial at 9 o’clock, while the day and month windows in the top part of dial are balanced by the moon-phase and date indicator at 6 o’clock.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control Chronograph Calendar

The entire display is anchored by the central chronograph seconds hand and contained by the pulsometric scale marked around the dial flange.

Complementing the Chronograph Calendar’s timeless style, rectangular chronograph pushers add a purposeful, modern air to the well-proportioned 12.05mm thick case, which is offered in steel or Le Grand Rose gold®.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control Date

Thanks to its slim movement, Calibre 899, the 40mm steel case of the Master Control Date is just 8.78mm thick.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control Date

A Jaeger LeCoultre mainstay since its introduction fifteen years ago, Calibre 899 has been repeatedly updated to incorporate the latest performance-enhancing technology.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control Date calibre-899

Revised again for the new Master Control collection, the latest-generation Calibre 899 features a new escapement and pallets: reconstructed in a slightly modified shape, they are made of silicon to minimize friction and thus consume less energy.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control Date

The central-seconds wheel has been redesigned to eliminate shaking; the fixing screws of the oscillating wheel are made of highly resistant titanium, rather than steel; and new oils, specifically formulated for the new materials, have been used. In order to increase the power reserve to 70 hours, the barrel was redesigned to accommodate a stronger and longer mainspring without increasing the 3.3mm height of the movement.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control Geographic

Jaeger-LeCoultre’s unique interpretation of the travel watch has been a feature of the Master Control collection since 1990, much appreciated by connoisseurs. Rather than indicating only the hour of a second time zone, the Geographic also has a 24-hour night/day indicator and, in an aperture at the bottom of the dial, displays the city name relating to the zone. This gives travellers the option of setting the second time by location, rather than needing to calculate the time difference.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control Geographic

The dial adheres to the familiar Geographic layout, with time-zone displays balanced by a date subdial and a power reserve indicator, and heat-blued steel hands adding a pop of colour to enhance legibility. But now, the entire dial is sunray-brushed, contained within a wide, convex flange on which the elongated triangular indexes are set.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control Geographic caseback view

The profile of each index has been shaped to fit perfectly flush with the curve where the flange meets the dial – a challenge to Jaeger-LeCoultre’s artisans but entirely in keeping with the Maison’s attention to detail.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control Geographic-calibre-939

The new-generation Calibre 939 increases the power reserve of the Master Control Geographic to 70 hours, while the case is available in a choice of steel or Le Grand Rose gold®.

Vacheron Constantin Fiftysix® New Models (Fiftysix® Complete Calendar and Fiftysix® Self-winding) with Sepia Brown-Toned Dial and Matching Calfskin Strap

Unveiled in 2018, the Fiftysix® from Vacheron Constantin is a retro-contemporary collection inspired by an iconic 1956 watch. This year, the collection welcomes two pink gold versions reinterpreting the iconic reference 6073, launched in 1956 and inspired by the shape of the Maltese cross.

Heir to an iconic watch from the 1950s, the Fiftysix® collection celebrates the skillful marriage of styles and eras. Fiftysix® borrows powerful characteristics from reference 6073, introduced in 1956 and the very first water-resistant automatic watch ever created by Vacheron Constantin.

The lugs shape forming a section of the Manufacture’s Maltese cross emblem; the box-type crystal topping the bezel in the manner of post-war watches; along with a retro look that perfectly complements the timeless elegance of its 18 carats 5N pink gold case measuring 40 mm in diameter.

A new sepia brown-toned dial colour now reinforces the vintage character of this watch, available in two versions, automatic and complete calendar, fitted for the first time by a brown calfskin leather strap.

Vacheron Constantin Fiftysix® Complete Calendar with Sepia Brown-Toned Dial and Matching Calfskin Strap

The retro-contemporary character of the Fiftysix® complete calendar watch is imbued with a new vintage aura. Framed by a 40 mm-diameter 18 carats 5N pink gold case, the sepia brown-toned dial is visually extended by a calfskin leather strap. Punctuated by day, date, month indications – as well as a precision moon phase requiring no adjustment for 122 years –, the watch face conceals a wealth of details.

Vacheron Constantin Fiftysix® Complete Calendar with Sepia Brown-Toned Dial and Matching Calfskin Strap

The subtle sector-type dial features opaline, sunburst and snailed finishes creating fascinating light effects, setting the stage for 18 carats 5N pink gold moon discs standing out against a blue sky.

Vacheron Constantin Fiftysix® Complete Calendar with Sepia Brown-Toned Dial and Matching Calfskin Strap

Around the circumference, the chapter ring bears specially designed Arabic numerals, alternating with gold hour-markers coated in luminescent material, as are the hours and minutes hands also visible in the dark. This results in exemplary legibility of the complete calendar indications, accurately driven by the 2460 QCL/1 self-winding movement, also equipped with a stop-seconds device.

Vacheron Constantin Fiftysix® Complete Calendar with Sepia Brown-Toned Dial and Matching Calfskin Strap

The sapphire caseback reveals traditional Côtes de Genève finishes, swept over by a 22 carats pink gold oscillating weight delicately open-worked in a shape inspired by the Maltese cross.

Vacheron Constantin Fiftysix® Complete Calendar with Sepia Brown-Toned Dial and Matching Calfskin Strap 1

A strong symbol also evoked in the shape of the lugs and on the notched crown of this watch that stylishly mingles historical influences with the aesthetic codes of contemporary elegance.

With its new sepia brown-toned dial colour matching the colour of its calfskin strap, the personality of the Fiftysix® self-winding watch is further reinforced by an even more resolutely retro touch.

Topped by a box-type crystal typical of the 1950s, the sector-type dial is distinguished by the refinement of its opaline, sunburst and snailed finishes. The resulting beautiful interplay of light and shade enhances its legibility.

Vacheron Constantin Fiftysix® Self-winding with Sepia Brown-Toned Dial and Matching Calfskin Strap 1

This pleasing composition is punctuated by hands and hour-markers enhanced with luminescent material and matching the 40 mm-diameter 18 carats 5N pink gold case.

Vacheron Constantin Fiftysix® Self-winding with Sepia Brown-Toned Dial and Matching Calfskin Strap 1

On the reverse side, the self-winding movement visible through the sapphire crystal caseback provides an admirable view of the meticulous Côtes de Genève decoration swept over by an open-worked 22 carats pink gold oscillating weight whose design is inspired by the Maltese cross, a shape that echoes the Vacheron Constantin emblem and is also evoked in the case lugs and on the crown.

Blancpain Villeret New models in Red Gold Case and Blue-Dial – Villeret Quantième Complet (Ref. 6654-3640-55B) & Villeret Ultraplate (Ref. 6651-3640-55B)

In 2020, Blancpain is expanding its classic Villeret collection with the addition of two blue-dial versions of its Quantième Complet and the Ultraplate.

The Villeret Quantième Complet model harmoniously combines a complete calendar and moon phases. Its dial features discreet apertures indicating the day of the week and month at 12 o’clock, a calendar with a serpentine hand and a moon-phase display with a mischievous face positioned at 6 o’clock.

Blancpain Villeret Quantième Complet (Ref. 6654-3640-55B)

This timepiece is powered by the 6654 self-winding movement equipped with a safety system protecting it against any improper use of the functions. The watch owner is thus able to set the complete calendar at any time without any risk to the movement, unlike conventional calendar watches.

Blancpain Villeret Quantième Complet (Ref. 6654-3640-55B)

The Villeret Quantième Complet model is also equipped with patented under-lug correctors, enabling all the information to be adjusted at the press of a finger and thereby eliminating the need for a pusher tool.

Blancpain Villeret Quantième Complet (Ref. 6654-3640-55B)

The elegant Villeret Ultraplate features refined and contemporary expressions of the collection’s aesthetic codes. The hour and minute display is complemented by a large central seconds hand and a date window at 3 o’clock, sized to ensure optimal visual balance and readability.

Blancpain Villeret Ultraplate (Ref. 6651-3640-55B)

This timepiece is driven by the self-winding movement 1151, which ensures a four-day power reserve thanks to the use of two series-coupled barrels and high-performance springs.

Blancpain Villeret Ultraplate (Ref. 6651-3640-55B)

These new models pair a midnight-blue dial with a 40 mm red gold case for the first time. A symbol of nobility and refinement, blue exalts its depth and shimmer thanks to a sunburst dial finish.

Blancpain Villeret Ultraplate (Ref. 6651-3640-55B)

The blue face of this Villeret duo is embellished by applied hour-markers with Roman numerals crafted in red gold and slender matching hands. The hour and minute hands are shaped like cut-out sage leaves, while the seconds hands bear the initials of the House’s founder, Jehan-Jacques Blancpain.

The charm of the new Villeret Quantième Complet and Villeret Ultraplate watches is also evident on the reverse side.

Visible through a sapphire crystal case-back, the movements feature carefully executed decorations, such as the Côtes de Genève motif adorning the bridges and the honeycomb pattern that can be admired on the red gold oscillating weights.

Sinn Model 6012 – Frankfurt Financial District Watch, Stainless Steel Model, Automatic Chronograph with Full Calendar and Moon Phase

The model 6012 is a  successor of the Sinn Frankfurt Financial District Watches, which were launched in 1999 with model 6000.

Model 6012 is the first to feature the Sinn SZ06 movement. Thanks to this complex factory modification, the German watch making company has combined the stopwatch minute counter with 60-second scale and the full calendar display with a moon phase display. This also ensures optimum readability, as the stopwatch minutes from 0 to 60 can easily be read.

The moon discs on the moon phase display are made from real mother-of-pearl. Due to the special, naturally occurring surface structure, mother-of-pearl creates a matt iridescent finish, which enhances the elegance of the watch. As a clear indication of the brand’s roots and reference to Sinn’s home town, a stylish engraving of the Frankfurt skyline adorns the rotor of the fine, exquisitely decorated movement.

Sinn 6012 Rose Gold Anniversary Limited Edition – The Frankfurt Financial District Watch with Moon Phase and Full Calendar Display

In 1999, SINN presented the Frankfurt Financial District Watch 6000 – a watch that marked a very special milestone in the company’s history. And, for the first time ever, the lettering ‘Frankfurt am Main’ featured on a SINN dial to underscore the close affiliation with the brand’s home town. The new Model 6012 Rose Gold Anniversary watch celebrates 20th anniversary of the first Frankfurt Financial District Watch.

Limited to just 50 pieces, the exclusivity of this watch is emphasised by its unique horological features. For example, a series first in the form of a moon phase display featuring real mother of-pearl moon discs adorns the black dial with sunburst decoration set in a wonderful case made of 18-carat rose gold. The naturally occurring mother-of-pearl effect creates an elegant shine combined with an ever-varying shimmer.

This visual detail is accompanied by the technical finesse of the SINN SZ06 movement. Specially designed in-house for this anniversary watch, this complex modification combines an off-centre stopwatch minute counter with 60-second scale with a moon phase indicator and a full calendar display.

The 6012 Rose Gold Anniversary is also equipped with DIAPAL Technology. The lubricant-free anchor escapement ensures the movement remains accurate for much longer.

Junghans Meister Kalender with Dark Blue Dial

A Junghans classic, the Meister Kalender showcases Italian elegance in 2019. The harmonious combination of the leather strap in cognac and a dark blue dial is one of the most popular colour combinations in the Meister range.

As well as exuding elegance, this exhibits a particular sense of style. The meticulous attention to detail is evident in the design of the moon phase display developed in Junghans’s very own printing facilities: A Junghans star can be clearly seen upon closer observation of the celestial bodies.

Junghans Meister Kalender with blue sunray brushed dial

The balanced design of the dial with its harmonious proportions has been a characteristic of the Meister line since the 1930s, together with the best movements produced at the company. In the 1950s the watch designers addressed the challenge of reducing the volumes of the watch and creating intricate timepieces, despite the relatively high movement. The steeply domed plexi glasses and dials in combination with thin-walled cases lent the watches a new, elegant and graceful look.

During this time Junghans was also producing numerous mechanical calibres, such as the chronometer caliber J83, one of the finest movements to be manufactured in Germany. The design of the Meister collection continues to delight with the grace of its historical predecessors to this day. The models are an homage to the design philosophy and technical achievements of that era. Modern technology, enthralling proportions and elegant lines are still features of these Junghans classics today.

Montblanc Star Legacy New Models – Star Legacy Nicolas Rieussec Chronograph, Star Legacy Automatic Date and Star Legacy Full Calendar

For 2019, Montblanc is unveiling four new Star Legacy models inspired by the origins of classical watchmaking: Two versions of the Star Legacy Nicolas Rieussec Chronograph and two new Star Legacy timepieces with Roman numerals—one with an automatic date calibre and the other with a full calendar.

The Montblanc Star Legacy product line takes its inspiration from Minerva’s heritage and the company’s pocket watches that were made during the late 19th century and early 20th century. These timepieces were the height of innovation for the time as they featured a patented crown system, leading the company to an early and immediate global success.

In the spirit of formal elegance, the Montblanc Star Legacy timepieces showcase classic design codes such as round, pebble shaped cases; horns with steps on the side; onion-shaped crowns with the recognisable Montblanc emblem, and eye-catching dials featuring the iconic exploding star guilloché pattern.

Montblanc Star Legacy Nicolas Rieussec Chronographs

Following on from the launch of the Star Legacy Nicolas Rieussec Chronograph in stainless steel with a silvery-white dial that was unveiled last year, Montblanc is presenting two new versions — one is a combination of a red gold and anthracite aesthetic, while the other one comes in stainless-steel with an anthracite dial. Both are equipped with matching anthracite Sfumato alligator straps coming from the Maison’s leather workshop in Florence, Italy.

Montblanc Star Legacy Nicolas Rieussec Chronograph in red gold

These timepieces pay tribute to the French watchmaker Nicolas Rieussec who invented the first inking chronograph that was patented in 1821 and has marked the history of fine watchmaking.

The Montblanc Star Legacy Nicolas Rieussec Chronographs incorporate the very recognisable two rotating, horizontally-aligned, discs on the watch’s dial—one for the chronograph’s 60-second counter and the other for the 30-minute counter — which turn below a fixed double index, like on the original device. Both the counters and the off-centred hours and minutes ring are domed to give an eye-catching three-dimensional effect.

Montblanc Star Legacy Nicolas Rieussec Chronograph

Other design details on the dial include slim Arabic numerals that are surrounded by a precise railway minute track, leaf-shaped hands, azuré finishing in the centre of the dial and a “flet sauté” guilloché decoration that runs around the dial. A ring with the Nicolas Rieussec inscription has also been applied on the outer part of the dial, further paying tribute to the chronograph’s famous inventor.

The timepieces are powered by the iconic calibre MB R200 Manufacture monopusher chronograph movement with automatic winding and columnwheel mechanism that can be admired through the sapphire crystal case back. The movement has two barrels which store enough energy for 72 hours of power reserve.

For utmost precision, the Montblanc Star Legacy Chronograph Nicolas Rieussec is water resistant to 30 metres and is certified by the Montblanc Laboratory Test 500.

The Star Legacy product line was reinterpreted last year with refreshing new design codes directly rooted in the history of Minerva and classical fine watchmaking. This year, the product line is being enhanced further with two new Montblanc Star Legacy Automatic Date models and a Montblanc Star Legacy Full Calendar model featuring new black Roman numerals.

Montblanc Star Legacy Automatic Date and Star Legacy Full Calendar

The new timepieces come in stainless steel and feature trendy coloured Sfumato straps coming from the strap from Richemont Pelletteria in Florence, Italy. In line with the design codes of the product line, the Montblanc Star Legacy Automatic Date features a refined dial with the Montblanc exploding star guilloché pattern, leaf-shaped hands, a “flet sauté” guilloché motif and a unique railway track.
