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.
Each Leinfelder Meridian Antigua 2010 is individually marked and numbered and the collection is limited to 63 pieces to commemorate the year of the foundation of Leinfelder , 1963.

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.
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.
Loyal to the tradition of frequently associating this collection with the world of motor sports, the Audemars Piguet 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.
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.
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.
The “engine” of the AP 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.

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.

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.
Introduced in 2010, the Schauer Edition 10 41mm Hand winding chronograph for Jubilee is a special edition series to celebrate the famous German watch brand’s 20 years of existence.
This timepiece in a limited edition of 100 pieces, a special edition variation of Schauer Edition 10 features a solid silver dial and the automatic chronograph movement (Valjoux 7753) was modified into a hand winding version.
The bezel is slant, which brings the diameter of case down to 41mm. The modification of the movement happening by a hand-wind-bridge made of German silver.
The bridge engraved with continuous limitation number. Schauer also used the familiar steel blued hands and screws on the Edition 10 in this model. Price: from 3,200.00 Euros.
Introduced in 2010 by Revue Thommen, one of Switzerland’s oldest watch companies, this timepiece is a reproduction of its mythical Square model, launched in 1953 to celebrate the company’s centenary. While it appears more contemporary with its pink gold-plated Arabic numerals, transparent back and finely guilloched small seconds, the 2010 model nevertheless remains faithful to the brand’s identifying features: a manufactory-made manual-wound movement, refined lines and unostentatious elegance.
Not forgetting those precious materials –18K pink gold for the case and the alligator strap – that add the final touch of perfection to this historically-inspired timepiece. The Revue Thommen GT 82 calibre offers 40-hours power reserve.

Introduced in 2010, the Duomètre à Quantième Lunaire watch is the second creation based on Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Dual-Wing concept, developed to enhance the autonomy and precision of mechanical complication watches.
The Dual-Wing system separates the provision of energy to the complication from that of the movement which is fed by its own barrel in order to guarantee the constancy of its energy supply.
First unveiled in 2007, it enabled Jaeger-LeCoultre to reinvent the chronograph by endowing the Duomètre à Chronographe with chronometer-worthy precision, while displaying the time thus counted off to the nearest 1/6th of a second. It was then given a new application in 2010 on the JLC Duomètre à Quantième Lunaire, guaranteeing this model exceptional accuracy and making it the first watch enabling 1/6th of a second time adjustment without interrupting the operation of its regulating organ.
Running such an elaborate complication as a calendar within a classic watch naturally has a detrimental effect on the precision of the time indications, the watchmakers at Jaeger-LeCoultre knew they had found in the Dual-Wing concept an instrument capable of creating a perfect alchemy: a calendar watch that was as accurate as a chronometer.
Arranged on the elegant and easily readable dial, the hours, minutes, seconds and moon-phase displays appear to make the Duomètre à Quantième Lunaire a classic watch model. But inside the case and partially hidden from view beats Calibre 381, a prodigious movement boasting unprecedented precision based on the Dual-Wing concept and which propels the watch firmly into the spheres of Haute Horlogerie.
The truly extraordinary appearance of the watch lies in the actual concept behind the Dual Wing movement, which is distinguished by the presence of two independent energy sources: the first, regulated by the escapement and the balance, is entirely dedicated to the precise measurement of the passing of time; whereas the second source of energy is devoted to the display of the functions: hours, minutes, seconds, calendar and moon phases for both hemispheres. Their synchronisation is ensured by the jumping seconds hand mechanism.
The Jaeger-LeCoultre Duomètre à Quantième Lunaire watch reaches the heights of precision with a jumping seconds hand moving in sixth of a second increments while displaying the date and the moon phase on a separate subdial.
Model: Jaeger-LeCoultre Duomètre à Quantième Lunaire
