Also exists in a version of 1,5 to 3 carats

Possession wedding bands
Possession: Piaget wedding bands symbolise the endless game of love in motion. Free and yet entwined, two rings turn endlessly around each other while remaining united in a perfect symbol of companionable love caught up in the enduring dance of time.

Embedded within each other, they celebrate love through incessant motion.

Habring² Collection For 2011

Habring² will be attending this year's Viennatime fair which is scheduled to be held between November 11th and 13th. The workshop of Habring² is now busy in designing and manufacturing of new models and new variations for this year. Some highlights of Habring² Collection for 2011 are given below.

Time-Date vs. Time-Only
The new "Time"-line: The very basic Habring² receives some new family members. The unique Habring² modular system now fully integrates Habring²'s in-house movement A09 which allows "small complications" like date function, power reserve indication or moon phases.



Foudroyante manual wind
The Foudroyante model launched in 2010, was probably the fastest sold out piece from Habring². Apart from this very first basic version with automatic winding it will be accompanied soon with it's manual wind brother. While the Foudroyante was initially planned to be a kind of top model of the Jumping Seconds range it turns more and more out that it has to stand alone and might be the founder for a new model line. The manual wind version with the new skeletonized jumping second’s bridge on top of the movement is the first variation which should be soon accompanied by a power reserve indication and an upcoming date function. The manual Foudroyante as well as the power reserve indication will be available from summer on.

Chrono COS ZM
It follows the idea of uncompromising reduction at the Chrono COS. The Chrono without pushers now loses the well known subcounters. While the minute counter moves to the center of the dial and appears newly as 60-mins counter, the subseconds disappearing completely. What remains is a very classy and gentle watch which looks like a traditional time-only watch but offers the full functionality of a chronograph. The COS ZM (which is German for "central minutecounter") will be available starting summer.



The 36mm
Since the very first beginning of Habring² in 2004 the standard case diameter has been set with 42mm. While this size did guarantee a wide range of variations with movements, functions, indications etc. From this year onwards every Habring²-model will have an option for 36mm size for those who judge the 42mm as too big for their wrist. However, due to the smaller case size it may come with some limitations regarding movements and functions. The 36mm case option is already available for the Time-Only line as well as for the manual wind jumping second. The last comes with a modernized movement in 30mm diameter and skeletonized jumping seconds bridge to show more of the dead beat second function.

Azimuth SP-1 Landship Limited Edition

The new Azimuth SP-1 Landship wrist watch is influenced by the British combat tanks during World War I - the world’s first Mk4 tanks.

Encased in a Titanium case, complete with a turret and a sponson (side gun), the SP-1 Landship looks like the mean, heavily armored war machine back in 1915. The turret contains a 3D Wandering Hour Drum, allowing the wearer to read the hour in an upright manner by looking inside the turret, different from the normal way of reading time on a flat plane. The retrograde minutes, sweeping from the right to left, can be viewed in a similar upright fashion too. The sponson on the turret doubles up as the winding crown of the watch.



This distinctive feature also means that the manufacturing process is different from the conventional means of watch-making, pushing the boundaries of watch design to new limits, and setting a new benchmark for other watch makers.



In addition, the SP-1 Landship is fitted with a Wondering Hours and Retrograde Minute complication – Azimuth’s own modified 28,800 vph Swiss-made retrograde minutes and wondering hour movement, which is not available to other Swiss watch manufacturers. Each watch will have its unique serial number, marked on a loose plate mounted on the body of the tank and bolted only when the watch is delivered – a first for the industry too. The Landship is not the only innovative design from Azimuth that drew inspiration from objects not normally associated with watches: previous Azimuth models include a Lambourghini-inspired SP-1 TBT and the Robot-shaped Mecha-1 Mr Roboto.

Azimuth Xtreme-1Collection

Azimuth’s Xtreme-1 collection has proven its ability to withstand the extremities of nature. Created in a joint collaboration between Azimuth and famed Mexican explorer, Fernando Alberto Lozano Andrade, Azimuth sponsored Fernando’s dangerous and Guinness World Record expedition, the ‘Absolute Altitude’, in December 2010 to scale the highest peak and dive to the deepest depths on the South American continent.

Fernando scaled the Ojos del Salado volcano with the Xtreme-1 Seahum GMT and Xtreme-1 Deep Diver watch, part of the Xtreme-1 collection. Ojos del Salado is the highest active volcano in the world standing at 6,896 metres and is located on the border of Chile and Argentina. It is also the second highest mountain in the Western Hemisphere.
The Azimuth Xtreme-1 watches have also gone through the rigours in high altitude diving – accompanying Fernando in his dives into the Ojos del Salado lake, which lies east of the summit. The lake remains untouched and its details undocumented.

Azimuth Round-1 Baccarat

Following the success of the Azimuth SP-1 Roulette unveiled at Baselworld 2009, Luxury watch brand Azimuth introduces another gaming-inspired timepiece - the World’s First Round -1 Baccarat. Based on the card game’s four possible outcomes – ‘player’, ‘banker’, ‘pair’ and ‘tie’, this watch has a modified movement that once the pusher embedded in the winding crown is depressed, spins the pointer which will stop randomly either of those outcomes. It is complemented by a stainless steel deployant buckle crocodile leather strap.

Azimuth is introducing 6 versions of this – a top tier, mid-tier and entry-level model for both males and females. This is also the first Azimuth watch which has a more elegant, female version.
At top of the range is a pavé diamond watch, with the case and dial of the men’s version covered with over 1100 VVS Top Wessleton diamonds (7 carats), and that of the ladies’ 800 VVS Top Wessleton diamonds (4.8 carats).

RAYMOND WEIL Nabucco Inverso

With its imposing 46mm case and a tachometric bezel sculpted in titanium, the Nabucco Inverso, the latest model from RAYMOND WEIL's Nabucco collection, gives a classical twist to the sleek, powerful and elegant design of the original collection. The number twelve of the nabucco Inverso becomes Roman, adding a greater classicism and henceforward establishing a stronger identity.

The harmony of the dial’s colors takes us from the dark to the light, as if through a process of introspection. A transition from the black of its bracelet and dial, to the grey of the case and its three small counters; from the yellow of its hands adorning the small counters and from the chronograph hand to the white of its indexes and the luminescent hour and minute hands.

Urban Jürgensen & Sønner Reference P8 Chronometer

This year, legendary Swiss watch brand Urban Jürgensen presents the world’s first wristwatch with a detent escapement. The new Chronometer P8 “with detent escapement” – adapted to the mechanical wristwatch – achieves a 40% better timing performance than the average COSC certified chronometer.

This new invention is the result of many years’ development work and a constant research and commitment. The long-held wish for a true UJS movement, with strong emphasis on precision, reliability and long intervals between servicing, has been addressed since 2003. In the 19th century, Urban Jürgensen & Sønner was the official chronometer maker to the Danish Royal Household and to the Admiralty.

The quality of the marine chronometers from the house of Jürgensen is still legendary among the collectors. In the past 25 years, in addition to individual, often complicated unique watches, the brand Urban Jürgensen & Sønner created wristwatches in small series from 50 up to a maximum of 300 examples. These watches were mainly based on ébauche movements from Frédéric Piguet, Le Brassus.

In order to close the loop from the past to modern times in an elegant and meaningful manner, development of a new movement and the chronometer escapement, suitable for use in a wristwatch, was undertaken. A particular problem was to ensure the necessary shockproof characteristics of the escapement. Having achieved this, the invention has been patented on a world-wide basis by Urban Jürgensen.

The Reference P8 is cased in either platinum, pink or yellow gold and is following the typical company tradition of a hand engine-turned silver dial, displaying hours, minutes, seconds and power reserve. The seconds are displayed on a small dial at “6”. Urban Jürgensen’s quality :

The fine engine-turned silver dials are produced in Urban Jürgensen & Sønner’s workshops. Each dial may require up to 700 operations. The typical two-piece cases are lathed and of highest standard, the middle part with double rounded profile and soldered drop-shaped lgs. The movements used to be the high quality F.Piguet calibres, upgraded by Urban Jürgensen. Today, the film is introducing his own calibre, a twin barrel movement with a patented 88 hours power-reserve indicator, either with a lever escapement or with the world’s first international patented detent escapement for wristwatches.

Features
- A highly innovative movement solidly designed: reliably calculated, simulated and tested.
- The caliber with detent escapement have undergone a thorough testing phase at the laboratories of Chronofiable SA and the C.O.S.C. who demonstrated results higher 40% than establishes brands.

- The variable design principle allows various functions and complications (basic plate prepared for 36 references).
- Highest quality of industrial and horological finishing.
- Longer delays for after sales service (5 to 7 years). Can be repair by any qualified watchmaker.

- Escapement : 32 mm - Height: 5.25 mm
- Case : 42 mm diameter – height: 12mm
- Two barrels “in series”
- Power reserve indication - Eighty-eight hours power reserve
- 21600 vph (3 Hz)
- Large free-sprung balance, diameter 12 mm, 24g/cm²
- Stop second (hack feature)
- Optimized teeth shape to reduce friction

Bertolucci Volta II Collection

Originally launched in 2009, Bertolucci’s Volta collection, inherited its name from the timeless phrase, “C’era una Volta”, meaning “Once upon a time”. It first featured a dual time-zone dial accentuated with diamonds and an oversized case complimented with flared case lugs. This year, Bertolucci has kept the elegant case design but infused the dial with amusing rotating amulets, such as a heart-in-heart and four-leaf clover.

A varied offering of stylish interpretations is being introduced to the Volta collection to suit every woman’s taste. The oversized 42mm case, available in all stainless steel or 18kt rose gold, either plain or set with 1.01 carats of diamonds, captures all the exquisite details in the dial without overpowering the simple feminine aesthetic appearance of the overall design.



The Heart series features a swiveling heart-in-heart charm, set with a combination of 18 diamonds and 35 rubies, or 18 light pink sapphires and 35 rubies, or simply with just 53 diamonds. The light pink sapphire and ruby heart combination is complimented with a matching pink alligator strap. The Four-leaf clover series features 64 diamonds or luminescent green Tsavorite stones.

The stunning opalin and concentric silver or black patterned dial is highlighted further with a gradual magnification of Arabic numerals and indexes, which contrasts with the off-centered positioning of watch hands. Each watch is elegantly fitted with an interchangeable, colour-matching alligator strap to suit the wearers ever-changing fashion wardrobe and mood.

National Museum of Singapore to Host an Exhibition of the Exceptional Watchmaking Heritage of Vacheron Constantin from June 24th to August 14th 2011

From June 24th to August 14th 2011, in collaboration with Vacheron Constantin, the National Museum of Singapore extends an invitation to discover the history of the Manufacture and that of Genevan Haute Horlogerie. The first major public exhibition of the heritage of the world’s oldest watch manufacturer in uninterrupted activity since its founding, the “Treasures of Vacheron Constantin - A legacy of watchmaking since 1755” shed light on more than 250 years of creativity and know-how.

Conceived as an educational journey revolving around the spirit of the artisans cabinotiers of the 18th Century, the exhibition is an exploration of the evolution of the measurement of time, of its crafts and of artistic influences, a trilogy that defines the history of Vacheron Constantin since its foundation.
The visitor travels back in time via 180 exceptional pieces from the heritage of the Manufacture in Geneva, in an exposition covering 600m2. From archived documents belonging to Jean-Marc Vacheron and Francois Constantin to particular watchmaking tools, and from the Genevan workbenches of the artisans cabinotiers to the machines invented by the Manufacture, the set design gives life to a technical and aesthetic universe of incredible richness.

Like an open book on the past and present, the pieces of the exhibit highlight the Métiers d’Art without which the Haute Horlogerie of Geneva would not shine as brightly. The centerpiece of the exhibition is a brilliant illustration of this truth: the pocket watch Les Bergers of Arcadia created in 1923 embodies in and of itself the alchemy of manufacturing know-how developed in the course of an endless quest for excellence.

On location for several days following the exposition’s opening, talented artisans of the Manufacture enthrall visitors with some of their secrets. Engraver, gem-setter, guillocheur, enameller and watchmaker showcase a know-how inherited from past centuries that continues to nurture constant creativity.

Stephen Webster boutique in Marbella showcases new Tiret watches along with their Les Dents de la Mer collection

Local personality, Anette Qviberg Lundgren invited her personal friends and family for a private viewing of the new Tiret watches and Les Dents de la Mer jewellery collection launched exclusively at Stephen Webster in Marbella. The evening attracted a glamorous crowd of Anette’s Swedish contacts, some of whom were here on holiday and others who are permanent residents in Marbella. Anette’s guests sipped champagne while they browsed the new collections in the boutique.

The dramatic Les Dents de la Mer collection sees the British jewellery designer, Stephen Webster continue to explore his love of the aquatic. Rose Gold and Rhodium plated silver combine to create a romantic yet striking silver collection comprised of earrings, rings, bracelets and necklaces.

Top Marques Watches 2011 : Special Report

Top Marques Monaco, the prestigious international fair of extreme and expensive machines successfully completed its 8th edition this year. This year's edition was scheduled between 14 to 17 April 2011 and the show witnessed the world premiere launches of supercars, speed boats and yachts.

If we starts to talking about these extreme machines, it may divert the focus from our main subject that is "luxury watches". So, I am strictly focusing only to the horological importance of this Show. As we know, the Top Marques Monaco 2011 was also celebrating the fourth edition of its associated fair "Top Marques Watches" and this time it carried the stamp of approval of the Fondation de Haute Horlogerie as partner.

This veritable showcase of the world’s finest timepieces and collector’s limited editions expanded this year with the arrival of five of the most prestigious brands from the Richemont Group’s rich collection - IWC, Montblanc, Piaget, Jaeger LeCoultre and Roger Dubuis, official timekeeping sponsor of the Superboats.

Also sought by serious connoisseurs who appreciate the precision of an exceptional instrument, Franck Muller’s latest addition to haute horlogerie was the Aeternitas Mega, which has earned its title as the most complicated watch in the world with more than 1,483 parts and 36 complications. Ateliers deMonaco debuted its magnificent new limited edition model, La Sirène studded with blue topaz, which was inspired by the future Princess Charlene Wittstock. The charming bride-to-be will be presented with a gift of the first of only ten to be crafted in the world.

One of this year’s novelties was a unique piece 21 Black Jack by Christophe Claret allowing the wearer to enjoy a game of roulette on the reverse side of the watch or some casual Black Jack as they check the time.

Bertolucci FORZA II

Bertolucci’s foray into men’s timepieces with the Forza I collection in 2010 has without a doubt, been a tremendous success and an homage to the masculine spirit that coexists with the femininity ever present in its extensive collection. While the Forza I features Swiss automatic movements, the new Forza II series expands its predecessor’s repertoire to include a Swiss quartz movement and juxtapose of complimentary colours and combination of materials to bring out the strength and elegance in its pieces.

In keeping with the initial Forza I’s sleek and masculine appeal, the new Forza series II uses Swiss quartz chronograph movements housed in an oval oversized 45mm stainless steel case, available in either black PVD or with a solid 18kt rose gold bezel and gold plated crown, all water resistant to 5 ATM. In addition, it features a curved sapphire crystal, pebble pushers, alternating brushed and polished surfaces and a three dimensional dial that proudly showcases the brand’s creative design and stylish use of colour.
The particularly intriguing and meticulous exploration use of colour on the dial is new to the brand, incorporating green, orange, purple, yellow, red, or blue in its hands and index design, all of which are coated in superluminova, to create a striking contrast against its sleek black PVD case. Each dial clearly displays the chronograph’s big day-date features together with three sub-dials: a small second counter at 3, a 1/10 second indicator at 6, and a 12-hour indicator at 9, all of which are set against an opalin dial base with a subtle wave pattern; a signature element found in many of Bertolucci’s timepieces.

The accents of colour on the dials harmonize further with the very individual straps, which are manufactured from black calf leather with a coloured rubber insert, adorned with a subtle wave pattern. All these unique design elements come together to once again confirm that Bertolucci is able to successfully venture and expand its collection to include distinct gents models.

Luxury watch brand Swisstek announces four new additions to its Jet-Setter collection

Luxury watch brand Swisstek is expanding its collections in the united States and has announced four new additions to its Jet-Setter collection. Each timepiece is crafted in limited edition and employs rare petite Swiss-watchmaking techniques, a craft long-forgotten in major manufacturing houses. Rugged yet classy, the Swisstek Jet-Setter will ensure the enterprising world traveler, family man and Super-Dad will never miss a single expedition.

With four new additions to the Jet-Setter collection alone, Swisstek is raising the bar in the Swiss-made luxury watch market, ensuring that every man will find a timepiece to make a statement all his own.

Employing petite Swiss-watchmaking techniques and movements from Switzerland, each Swisstek timepiece is hand-crafted and designed in limited edition. Fueled by the success of the first Jet-Setter collection which featured highly functional designs using stainless steel cases enveloped by high-grade black silicon straps, Swisstek CEO and lead designer Kunal Naik recognized an opportunity to expand the line in a more fashion-forward direction. The collection’s evolution focuses on the look of the timepiece, moving away from sleek, smooth faces and opting for a rugged, more angular design.

Four new band options emphasize the collection’s transformation, highlighting the use of precious metals fused over high-grade stainless steel. The new Jet-Setter is offered in a matte black ion finish for a masculine and refined appeal, a softer style in 18-karat rose gold, the simplest of bands in polished stainless steel, and a final option which juxtaposes 18-karat rose gold with a gleaming stainless steel bracelet.

Tailored to the needs of the modern man on the go, each Jet-Setter timepiece throughout the collection features dual time zone functionality and a triple inlay of dials displaying an alarm, the day of the week and power reserve meter. Inside high-grade stainless steel cases, delicate blue-lacquered hands expertly mark the time while a stunning sapphire scratch-resistant crystal and genuine stainless steel push-button deployment buckle complete the look.

Highlights
· Four new band options in stainless steel, 18-karat rose gold, stainless steel and 18-karat rose gold or a matte black ion finish
· Dual time zone functionality
· Triple inlay of dials displaying an alarm, day of the week and power reserve meter
· High-grade stainless steel cases
· Hand-applied blue laquer for the highest quality “blued” hands

Bertolucci Stria III

Bertolucci’s innovation in fusing gemstones and jewellery has now also crossed over into new materials such as sterling silver, now featured on the bezel of the new Stria III. The latest series to be included in Bertolucci’s Distinction collection features sterling silver set with diamonds and various precious stones, to create a delicate and organic bezel design unlike any other. Diamonds are interlaced harmoniously with other precious stones - blue sapphires, pink sapphires as well as black diamonds.

The Stria III manifests the brand’s innovation in its signature “4 C’s”; Creativity is apparent in the sterling silver bezel design, in which stones are set in a wavelike pattern, like that of the Mediterranean Sea. Bertolucci has embrassed the use of sterling silver in its bezel to allow for a more intricate and flexible design of the case adornment.
Two distinct and yet unique bezel designs are available in the Stria III series. One intricate and ornate bezel design features 2.07 carats of diamonds on the bezel of the all diamond version, and 1.64 carats of diamonds mingled with 0.5 carats of blue or pink sapphires or 0.48 carats of black diamonds. A non-diamond bezel version is also available with a matching calf leather strap. A second, even more free-flowing wave bezel design features 1.73 carats of diamonds on the bezel of the all diamond version, and 0.91 carats of diamonds mingled with 0.96 carats of blue sapphires, 0.96 carats of pink sapphires, or 0.96 carats of black diamonds.
Curves are incorporated in the bezel design as well as on the elegant white mother-of- pearl dial, which matches perfectly with the overall free-flowing feeling brought forth in the intricately cut bezel and case. The dial is designed off-centered with the domed crown positioned at 10 o’clock, both, unconventional elements, like the bezel design.

Comfort is apparent in the exquisite craftsmanship of the stainless steel case and complimented in the choice of the shiny alligator strap. Wearers can also appreciate the simple functionality of the interchangeable strap fitted with the Stria signature buckle. Construction of the Stria III is particularly refined and the case is crafted and polished to the peak of quality craftsmanship.

The Stria III is the embodiment of feminine charm in its creative use and combination of materials and fusion of design.

Bertolucci is renowned the world over as the embodiment of the Mediterranean spirit, fusing the world of Italian-inspired, elegant jewellery design together with unparalleled Swiss watch craftsmanship. Together, they bring to life the brand’s signature “4 C’s”: Creativity, Curves, Comfort and Construction. Bertolucci's visually stunning timepieces are irresistible to today's discerning customer and will prove to be timeless for this premier brand in the world of haute horlogerie.
