Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Twin Beat Perpetual Calendar: To Eternity And Beyond

Arguably the biggest R&D news of the latest SIHH came from Vacheron Constantin. In some sense we’ve got a new complication, and a pretty useful one. We’re talking two independent regulating systems – one for standard duties at your wrist and the other – for running your perpetual calendar when the piece lies idle for… 65 days!

La Chaux-de-Fonds: My heart's in the highlands

The population of La Chaux-de-Fonds barely reaches 40,000 people, but don’t let the modest size mislead you: this is one of the two largest watchmaking areas in Switzerland. By the number of watch-related factories and offices, the city located some ten kilometers from the French border, can only be compared to Biel/Bien.

It’s all about love: Romantic timepieces

DeWitt Academia Hour Planet Titanium Black DLC: The Globe (un)chained

There are quite a few GMT designs around, but a globe moved by a chain is certainly not something we see that often. And if you’ve heard the name DeWitt before, you probably already know, their watches never act like a one-trick pony.

Swatch Group: Size matters

With all due respect for the big independent brands, the lion's share of today's market is de facto owned by just a few watchmaking groups. And it’s quite logical to start a long conversation about their origins and structure with the largest one: the Swatch Group.

H. Moser & Cie. Swiss Alp Watch Concept Black: A Sound of Time

Swiss Alp Watch Concept Black is a minimalistic culmination from H. Moser & Cie. manufacture. After removing both logo and indices from the dial of its Concept models, it now presents a watch with no hands at all. The glossy black dial features a one-minute flying tourbillon at 6 o'clock and so its rectangular case with rounded corners looks like a smart watch on standby.

Glashütte: in the heart of German watchmaking

Unlike Switzerland, where a visit to the key watchmaking areas will require a sightseeing tour across half the country, the main chorological heritage of Germany is located in one region. Well, sometimes greatness do come at a very modest size.

Ulysse Nardin Freak X: Meet the unXpected

While the new entry point to the flagship Ulysse Nardin collection – remember, it was Freak in 2001 who pioneered the silicon parts in top Swiss movements – clearly comes with some shortcuts, it’s fully packed with trademark Freak DNA and screams attitude. Oh, and for the first time it features a winding crown!

Geneva: A perfect place to be called the watchmaker’s capital

The city stretching along lake Geneva seems to be a calm tourist Paradise. The old Europe atmosphere, a wide variety of museums and restaurants, gorgeous views of the Alps and the world-famous cheese and chocolate. However, from the viewpoint of a horology fan it’s primarily the birthplace of numerous legendary brands.

The watchmaker is enriching his collection of traditional complication watches with a limited-edition anniversary model combining a tourbillon with a long detent escapement and a cable-type fusee transmission system.
