Stowa Flieger watch Automatic Type B (Re edition of the historic Stowa Flieger watch with the Baumuster B dial)

Stowa Flieger watch with the Baumuster B dial and its respectable size of 55 mm is one of the rarest historical Flieger watches. Introduced in 1940, only 42 pieces of this remarkable model have been built. The remake of this historical model comes in the popular case size of 40 mm with riveted Flieger strap. The remake Stowa pilot watch type B features a unique black dial without logo.

Built in is the automatic movement ETA 2824-2, well-known for its resilience, in a high quality version with blued screws. If desired, even a version with a tested COSC chronometer work is available.
Special attention was paid to the authenticity of the design between the dial and hands; the hand however was designed more harmonically. The counterweight of the sweep hand is based on the length of the hour hand. The different interpretation of the crown and the sweep hand of the original Flieger watch are based and designed on the personal taste of Jörg Schauer.
The sweep hand of the historical original Flieger seemed to be not a part of the design - so Mr. Schauer had some thoughts in mind in order to link the second hand perfectly with the design. The Flieger Baumuster B watch is offered with handmade German silver rotor and various strap combinations.

Swiss watch brand Longines and The Hong Kong Jockey Club announce their partnership for the “Longines Hong Kong International Races”

Swiss watchmaker Longines and The Hong Kong Jockey Club (HKJC), have announced their partnership for the “Longines Hong Kong International Races”. A signing ceremony was held on 27 Jun 2012 at the Club’s iconic Happy Valley Racecourse. Longines will be the Title Sponsor and Official Timekeeper of this prestigious event. Mr Walter von Känel, President of Longines, Mr Winfried Engelbrecht-Bresges, Chief Executive Officer of HKJC, Mr Juan-Carlos Capelli, Vice President and Head of International Marketing at Longines, Mr Kevin Rollenhagen, Managing Director of The Swatch Group Hong Kong; Mr William Nader, Executive Director, Racing of HKJC, and Mr Richard Cheung, Executive Director, Customer and Marketing of HKJC, were present to witness this milestone in Hong Kong’s racing history.

The Longines Hong Kong International Races provide an exciting climax to the horseracing year. The 2012 event will take place at Sha Tin Racecourse on Sunday 9 December. The occasion is one of the most prestigious in the international calendar with four International Group 1 races. The G1 Longines Hong Kong Cup (2000m) boasts record prize-money in 2012 of HK$22 million. The G1 Longines Hong Kong Vase (2400m) and the G1 Longines Hong Kong Sprint (1200m) have also each received purse boosts and are now worth HK$15 million, while the G1 Longines Hong Kong Mile(1600m), one of the richest turf mile races in the world, offers an alluring HK$20 million. Total prize money of HK$72 million makes the Longines Hong Kong International Races one of the most lucrative horse racing events anywhere on the globe and explains why it attracts many of the best jockeys and horses from around the world year after year.



In the past eight years, over 148 Group 1 winners from Australia, France, Germany, Britain, Ireland, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, Singapore, South Africa, UAE and the USA have competed alongside top Hong Kong runners in this annual extravaganza.

Longines is also the title sponsor of the Longines International Jockeys’ Championship, an exciting prelude to the Longines Hong Kong International Races. The exciting event at Happy Valley Racecourse is recognized as one of the world’s leading jockeys’ challenges and attracts a stellar line-up of globally-acclaimed riders every year. This year’s event will take place on Wednesday 5 December and offers a prize fund to the winning jockey and runners-up of HK$800,000. In addition, Longines will sponsor the Longines Jockey Club Cup, a lead-up event to the Longines Hong Kong International Races. This international Group 2 race over 2000m, worth HK$3 million, will take place at Sha Tin Racecourse on 18 November 2012.

Longines’ passion for equine sport dates back to 1878, when it produced a chronograph engraved with a jockey and his mount at the case back. Since at least 1881, Longines is committed to horseracing and its chronographs have been since then highly sought-after by racegoers. Today Longines’ involvement in equine sports includes flat racing, show-jumping and endurance competitions. The brand can boast its involvement in some of the most famous flat-racing events in the world, such as the Dubai World Cup, the Prix de Diane Longines, the Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe, Royal Ascot, the H.H. The Emir’s Trophy presented by Longines, the Longines Singapore Gold Cup, the Melbourne Cup Carnival, the Gran Premio Longines, the Longines Handicap de las Américas, the Grand Prix Longines Lydia Tesio, the Longines Grosser Preis von Baden, Belmont Stakes and the famous Kentucky Derby.

ProWatCH association releases Swiss Watch Passports, a collection of passport guides on the theme of watchmaking

The Swiss Watch Passports, released by The Prowatch association, is a series of themed passport-style booklets, distilling the very essence of a watchmaking culture based on the transmission of knowledge. Proudly proclaiming its Swissitude, with its spotless ad-free cover sporting embossed white and gold markings against a Swiss red ground, the Swiss Watch Passport, no less, is a streamlined addition to the current media landscape in the contemporary Swiss watchmaking world: a handy-sized booklet that fits neatly into the inside pocket, an independent mine of information based on the notion of service, a unique format that already has nearly 5,000 subscribers and that will also be sold in bookshops and in the top tourist spots.

The result of five years’ work by an ardent collective of watchmaking enthusiasts, collectors and industry players, the themed Swiss Watch Passport collection will be rolling out its first edition by the end of 2012. No, not another magazine, but rather an ensemble of watchmaking creations crafted in the form of a series of booklets, themed guides, updated from one issue to the next.



Behind this unique project is the not-for-profit association Prowatch (for the promotion of Swiss culture and watchmaking expertise), who has entrusted the editorial task to Joël A. Grandjean, specialist journalist and founder of TàG Press +41, a press agency with a strong presence in the world of watchmaking. The first theme, still top secret, will be unveiled shortly.

100 high-profile portraits, three levels of content
‘The editorial content of the Swiss Watch Passports captures the pure unadulterated essence of watchmaking genius. They are a tribute to the art of miniaturisation, the principles of which have been similarly applied to the carefully worded copy, where the accent is on quality not quantity’, confides Joël A. Grandjean on behalf of the founding collective. The keystone is a gallery of portraits of around a hundred watchmaking brands. ‘Ask anyone to come up on the spot with the names of a few Swiss brands and they will be able to cite 5 or 6; they are often the same and the best-known. Thanks to the Swiss Watch Passports, anyone travelling to Switzerland, or living there, will be aware of the sheer wealth of the watchmaking legacy. In addition to the 100 portraits rich in historical and cultural detail, 150 other active brands will receive a mention through the inclusion of their website addresses.’

The second level of content comprises a section devoted exclusively to the reader’s needs, including a glossary, useful addresses, a watchmaking roadmap, names of institutions, public and private museums, collectors’ associations. Finally, the third level sets the editorial tone of the whole publication by establishing the theme of the edition. ‘The list of themes, from complications to watchmaking territories or classification systems, is never-ending. Not including the re-editions, there should be enough to keep us going for a good ten years!’, claims Olivier Broto, Vice-President of Prowatch, journalist and inveterate collector. For example, if the chosen theme happens to be Asia, the Swiss Watch Passport will indicate, by means of a symbol, which of its ‘gallery of 100 brands’ are present in China, giving their retail outlets in Switzerland. Then, through a series of feature articles on the theme, the Swiss Watch Passport will describe how the love affair between China and the Swiss watch came about and flourished. The reader will be swept back into the Imperial era and given an exceptional insider’s sneak peek into the Forbidden City.

A discerning approach
Needless to say, the Swiss Watch Passports will not be addressing those brands that do not have at least the minimum amount of Swiss-made content. Allowing only a limited number of hand-picked advertisements, based on a discerning mix of prime positioning and scrupulously selected symbolic brands, the Swiss Watch Passports have been structured in such a way as to cultivate an independent tone and content. Before the publication announcement, the Prowatch association looked to the non-watchmaking luxury environment, financial world and symbolic Swiss companies for support. It now has all the necessary ingredients for making this an economically viable new adventure… What is more, a key industry figure will be penning the preface of each edition, in reference to the chosen theme.

About ProWatCH
Founded in 2006, this not-for-profit association aims to promote watchmaking as a national cultural good and strives to ensure that it is no longer perceived merely as a commercially viable economic sector responsible for generating jobs. To do so, it relies on a network of collectors, an historian, a number of communication and subcontracting professionals and labels of renown. ProWatCH, already the owner of the independent webzine bloghorloger.ch (www.bloghorloger.ch), received the support of the City of Geneva for its idea that the floral clock could be powered by a mechanical movement.

Frédérique Constant Runabout Venice Limited Edition

In 2009, Swiss watch Manufacturer Frédérique Constant introduced a new attractive series of limited edition timepieces named “Runabout” by taking inspiration from the legendary Runabout yachts of the Roaring Twenties. This year, Frederique Constant enhances this line with the ‘Venice Editions’ of the Runabout, consisting of a Chronograph version and a Three-hand Automatic with date.
Both timepieces from this limited edition collection feature a stainless steel case and a silvered dial with applied rose gold plated Arabic indexes. A light brown strap with off-white stitching accentuates the rose gold plated indexes on the dial. Our Italian clientele defined this sophisticated combination of design elements. This year Frederique Constant hosts the Runabout Challenge in Venice, Italy, so it was only logical to design the Runabout Venice Edition, based on the input from the Italian market.
The new models are available in limited editions of 1’888 pieces per version. Featuring a case diameter of 43mm and presented in stainless steel, the new Runabout Venice Editions offer finely decorated silvered dials. With a delicate guilloche decoration at the centre, hand-applied Arabic indexes, and perfectly positioned Chronograph counters, these watches exude an uncluttered elegance, just like the Runabout yachts by which they were inspired. Through the sapphire case-back, the decorated automatic movement can be admired. Traditionally, each Runabout timepiece comes with its own luxurious, handmade wooden case that echoes the passionate craftsmanship of the yachts. Alongside the watch, a miniature reproduction of a classic Runabout boat can be found inside the unique gift box.

Runabout Challenge 2012 in Venice
End of April 2012, Frederique Constant hosted a unique event on the waters of Venice, to celebrate its connection with Runabout boats. After sponsoring the Helice Classique on Lake Geneva and the Lake Tahoe Concours d’Elegance in the USA, it was time to organize a dedicated Frederique Constant Runabout event. A select group of 200 clients and members of the press enjoyed a three-day event in the City of Water.

A large fleet of Runabout boats, gathered specifically for this event proved to be stylish means of transportation and offered amazing views of Venice. During the actual Challenge, teams in each Runabout boat had to compete for the Frederique Constant Runabout Trophy. The event’s aim was to pay homage and to gather many of the remaining Runabout yachts. Yachts that today - as in their heyday - symbolize elegance, sophistication and ageless design. It is these characteristics that make the devotion of Frédérique Constant to Runabout boats so apt, so perfect, because those same values and qualities apply to the Runabout Collection.

Runabout
A Runabout is a gentlemen’s motorboat holding between four and eight people, well suited to moving about on the water. The first runabouts date back to the 1920s and were originally small, fast, powerful varnished wooden boats created to take advantage of the power of a V8 inboard engine. In order to gain speed, the hull shape had to be designed to take advantage of hydroplaning; a hydrofoil-like design would allow the boat to skim atop the water's surface at high speed instead of needing to push aside large quantities of water to move forward. A classic Runabout boat is a design icon, a moving sculpture in wood, chrome and glass that commands attention wherever it goes. Add to this a long list of famous owners and an association with exotic Mediterranean locations such as Monaco and San Tropez, and it is no wonder that the Runabout has, over time, become a legend. The iconic style of Runabouts frequently features in advertisements and editorials.

Montegrappa 2012 St. Moritz Limited Edition Luxury Pens

Montegrappa, Italy’s most revered manufacturer of fine writing implements, has captured the spirit of St. Moritz in a series of luxurious pens. The hand-crafted fountain pens and roller balls are apt representations of both the village itself and the aura that surrounds it. For 2012, a new quartet of pens has been introduced, in the tradition of the previous series, now highly collectible.

St. Moritz is like no other resort, for it has come to symbolise all that a Swiss destination should be: genteel and refined, exclusive yet welcoming. So great is the impact that St. Moritz has had on the global consciousness, since it first welcomed skiers nearly 150 years ago, that it has grown to be both cinematic and literary “shorthand” for luxurious getaways.

Located in the Engadin valley, St. Moritz first attracted visitors and functioned as a proper resort in 1864, when hotelier Johannes Badrutt made a wager that would resonate forever throughout Switzerland. His bet with four British summer-season visitors proffered that, should they return in winter and not find it as pleasurable a vacation as their warm weather sojourn, he would pay the cost of their round-trip. It was a win-win situation for them, as he also offered to pay for their visit, to stay as long as they wished, if they did find St. Moritz to be attractive in winter. That example of genteel gamesmanship not only established St. Moritz as a ski resort, it also launched the Alps on the whole, as a destination for vacationing skiers.

Over the years, St. Moritz would host the first European Ice-Skating Championships (1882), the first golf tournament held in the Alps (1889), a horse race on snow (1906) and the opening of Switzerland’s first ski school (1929). It has twice hosted the Winter Olympics – in 1928 and 1948 – as well as over 30 Bobsled World Championships, four Alpine Ski World Championships and numerous 40 Engadin Ski Marathons. So rich is St. Moritz’s winter sport heritage that it now exemplifies the Swiss sporting vacation ethos.

As far back as 1934, Alfred Hitchcock used it for the opening scenes of The Man Who Knew Too Much, while it was cited exactly 30 years later in the James Bond film, Goldfinger, and referred to in 1981’s For Your Eyes Only. Bond’s creator Ian Fleming clearly knew a good thing when he found it: locations near St. Moritz also served as headquarters for the villain Blofeld in the novel, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. Most romantically, singer-songwriter Peter Sarstedt listed St. Moritz amongst the elite locales in his immortal “Where Do You Go To My Lovely”, its mere mention conveying haute monde elegance.

But St. Moritz supports much more than skiing, golf and other leisure pursuits. Every year, this town welcomes the arts, celebrated with exhibitions, seminars, walks and other attractions. The St. Moritz Arts Masters is an annual gathering of artists and collectors, experts and critics, presenting a rare opportunity for the public to savour the art world in all of its aspects, in a breath-taking Alpine environment.

It is fitting, then, that the representation of the village be both a tool an artist might use – a pen – and an objet d’art embellished with visual representations of St. Moritz itself. To decorate the pens’ barrels, Montegrappa’s designers have chosen four historic posters redolent of St. Moritz’s charms, each image hand-painted by artist Lorena Straffi. The pens are fashioned from celluloid, a costly material made from cotton fibre mixed with natural pigments and mother-of-pearl, and are further adorned with either sterling silver or 18K gold.



Montegrappa’s new St. Moritz collection encompasses four themes, represented by period posters of timeless appeal:

Automobile Week 1929, by Baumberger – encapsulated in the image of a sleek red racing car heading toward the mountains at great speed

Grosses Ski Rennen der Schweiz (Big Swiss Ski Race) 1911, by Kupfer – with a pensive skier pondering the race in which he is about to compete

Tea time by the Engadin lake 1920, by Stiefel – showing the restful aspects of St. Moritz, as an elegant resort

Woman in a red jacket 1925, by Daester – redolent of the great Art Deco period during which it was created

The 2012 St. Moritz Limited Edition comprises 300 fountain pens and 300 rollerballs with sterling silver trim and a special limited edition of eight fountain pens and eight roller balls with solid 18K gold trim per design.

The Audi Italia sailing team supported by Swiss horology brand Eberhard & Co dominates and wins the Kieler Woche

The Melges 24 Audi-Eberhard, skippered by Riccardo Simoneschi, intent on rounding the buoys of the Kieler Woche, stayed in the lead for the three days of the competition and, achieving a “clear round”, triumphed once again. Eberhard & Co., the partner of the Audi Italia Sailing Team for the whole 2012 sailing season has announced this new victory, which is particularly important for the international sailing calendar, as it is valid for the ranking list of the Melges 24 class.

The Italian crew, with its sail signed Audi-Eberhard, were at the fore in all eleven trials, despite the challenging weather conditions, leaving the second and third-placed teams behind by 16 and 49 lengths respectively. For the company from Bienne as for the Team it supports, this is a year of particularly important challenges and goals; Eberhard & Co., is in fact celebrating its 125th anniversary and is doing it with the best result of its expertise: the “Extra-fort Roue à Colonnes Grande Date 125ème Anniversaire” which has been specially created for the occasion.

An exclusive model, produced in a limited edition - 500 pieces for the steel version and 125 for the gold version. The chronograph stands out for its perfect combination of technical brilliance, as found in the column wheel controlling the chronographical functions of the mechanical self-winding movement, and aesthetic refinement. Over the past 125 years the company has never stopped looking to the future, giving life to innovative creations while at the same time being receptive to the richness of its history.

The sailing season of the Audi Italia Sailing Team supported by Eberhard began in the best of ways with the second place achieved in the Bacardi Cup in Miami on 8 March, continued with its triumph at the Austria Cup, and presses on with this new victory. It will then forge ahead by participating in the last leg of the Volvo Cup circuit, scheduled for 5 - 8 July in Riva del Garda, before the much-anticipated Torbole World Championship, in which over 120 crews will be taking part, representing four continents.

Swiss luxury watchmaking house Carl F. Bucherer enhances its classic Manero line with the new Manero MoonPhase model. This beautiful rose gold watch is packed with functions such as current date, day and month and in addition, the classic Moon phase indication.

The special appeal of the Manero MoonPhase lies in its detailed calendar function. A glance at the wrist provides the wearer with a quick overview of the current date, shown by hands around the center of the dial. While the indication of the weekday has been placed at 10 o’clock, the current month can be read off on the right at 2 o’clock. The finishing touch for this special calendar is provided by the moon phase indication, shown centrally at 6 o’clock. The CFB 1966 automatic movement unique to Carl F. Bucherer is at the heart of this extraordinary calendar, making it a reliable companion.
The Manero range from Carl F. Bucherer represents the supreme craft of the master watchmaker in its most authentic form. Thus the Manero MoonPhase also reflects elegance and timeless design. With a diameter of 38 mm and a height of 10.85 mm, a classic size for top quality Manufacture watches, the 18 K rose gold case forms a harmonious setting for the silver-colored or black dial with its 12 index marks in the same color.
In spite of the many indications of complications, Carl F. Bucherer placed special emphasis on optimum legibility during its design, as can be seen from the wedge-shaped index marks and the tapered Superluminova-coated hours and minutes hands. A particularly eye-catching feature is the moon phase indication, which consists of a gold-colored moon disc shining against a blue background.
The shimmering effect is continued in the clasp, also made of 18 K rose gold, which is used to close the high quality alligator leather strap, thus underlining the elegant appearance of the timepiece. The look is completed by the polished surfaces of the watch case and the harmoniously rounded strap bars.

IWC Schaffhausen - Pilot’s Watches for Father and Son: Big Pilot’s Watch for Father and Son & Pilot’s Watch Mark XVI for Father and Son

Legendary Swiss watch brand IWC Schaffhausen, after the successful launch of remarkable series of Pilot watches this year, presents an exclusive special edition Pilot’s Watches for Father and Son. With the Big Pilot’s Watch and the Pilot’s Watch Mark XVI, father and son retain their individuality while demonstrating a mutual passion for the exquisite. These two unusual timepieces form a perfect family unit and are symbolic of a fascination with precision engineering and aviation handed down from one generation to the next.

In 2012, the year of the Pilot’s Watches, the watch manufacturer renowned for masculine timepieces is launching its second special edition since 2008 for the men in the family; or – to retain the language of flying – the pilot and co-pilot. In life, as in the cockpit, it is a question of being able to rely on one another and of giving the junior member of the team an increasing degree of responsibility. Fathers pass on to their sons vital personal qualities, such as self-confidence, ambition and a sense of responsibility. And not infrequently, a father’s enthusiasm for engineering and perfect craftsmanship will be inherited by the younger generation.



For fathers, the model of choice is the Big Pilot’s Watch with power reserve and date display. With its impressive 46-millimetre case diameter, it is one of the seriously big players in its field. In watchmaking terms, it goes way beyond conventional limits: the automatic 51111-calibre movement with its spring-mounted rotor and Pellaton pawl-winding system builds up a power reserve of 168 hours. The power reserve of the mainspring would last even longer, but the movement is stopped automatically after 7 days to ensure the requisite high level of precision.

The smaller edition for the son, with its 39-millimetre case and automatic 30110-calibre movement is, technically speaking, virtually identical to the Pilot’s Watch Mark XVI. This functional timepiece has a 42-hour power reserve and, apart from the time, also shows the date. Water resistance to 6 bar and a glass secured against drops in air pressure make the Pilot’s Watch for sons a reliable everyday companion.



Even if the technical specifications of the two models differ, the visible similarities are unmistakable. Both watches have a stainless steel case, an eye-catching crown and a black, riveted alligator leather strap. The shape of the hands, outlined in black, is reminiscent of propeller blades. The inner surface is coated with green luminescent material to guarantee optimum legibility against the rhodium-plated dial. The Big Pilot’s Watch is fitted with a folding clasp while the Pilot’s Watch Mark XVI comes with a pin buckle as standard or, at additional cost, with a folding clasp.

It is a hallowed tradition to present the people who mean the most to us with valuable timepieces. Whether as a sign of affection, out of recognition for special service or in memory of a joyful occasion, watches are simply one of the most personal gifts of them all. In this respect, the Pilot’s Watches for Father and Son send out a clear signal. Inscribed with a dedication, both the Big Pilot’s Watch and the Pilot’s Watch Mark XVI become valuable family heirlooms that can be passed on from one generation to the next. The inner circle on the case back of both watches is reserved for the engraving of a name, as a stylish dedication and to prevent mix-ups: a practical feature, because this Pilot’s Watch set can be extended to include several watches for fathers with two or more sons.

KAZIM KENZO - Kazimon Zeitmessinstrumente Eintausend Diver Limited Edition

This limited edition flag ship diving watch created by Kazim Kenzo has an amazing water resistance of 1000M/3300ft and also features shockproof and anti-magnetic properties. The EINTAUSEND is a precision timekeeping instrument designed to exceed the requirements of professional divers.

The design philosophy of the EINTAUSEND begins with the CAD designed heavy 44mm case cut from a single block of the high quality 316L stainless steel, with the outside surface smoothed to a satin bead blasted finish. An integrated automatic Helium Escape Valve (HEV) provides a safe means to vent case pressure, making the EINTAUSEND suitable for saturation diving. Extreme water protection is provided by double O-ring seals for the massive metal case-back and large, easy-to-grip 7mm screw-down crown.
The caseback is individually numbered and engraved with the Kazimon custom logo that also serves as the indentation for opening the watch-case. The unidirectional dive bezel is clearly marked to monitor dive times, with a large serrated edge for excellent grip, even when wearing thick gloves. A heavy duty bezel spring ensures positive clicks when setting the initial dive time. The bezel surrounds a 3mm thick scratch-proof domed sapphire crystal, which features an anti-reflective (AR) coating on the inner surface for clear viewing from all angles.

The EINTAUSEND is powered with a 25-jewel shockproof Swiss ETA 2824-2 automatic movement, which features handwinding, hacking, quick set date, and hours, minutes, and seconds functions. The EINTAUSEND features a soft iron inner case, which protects the movement from magnetic fields on the order of 80,000 A/m.

The dial and hands of the EINTAUSEND are coated with C3 SuperLuminova for superb readability under reduced lighting conditions. The clean appearances of the hands are enhanced by the color matching of their base to the color of the matte dial. The EINTAUSEND comes with a stainless steel 22mm bracelet attached to the case with a solid screw-bar. The individual bracelet links are also connected via screw-bars for easy resizing. The bracelet clasp features both a dive extension and microadjust for optimum fitment.

The packaging includes a water resistant hard shell Pelican case with tailored foam cushioning, custom caseback removal tool, and warranty card of unconditional guarantee.

Girard-Perregaux "The New Face of Tradition, Eight Young Watchmakers and the Art of Making Time Exhibition" - Beijing

Girard-Perregaux, iconic luxury Swiss watch brand, broke the laws of watchmaking with its recent unveiling of an industry first, The New Face of Tradition, Eight Young Watchmakers and the Art of Making Time. This journal, featuring eight young watchmakers from its famed atelier, launched the international Young Watchmakers Tour.

After the successful exhibition at the first stop in New York City, the Young Watchmakers Tour took hold of Beijing on June 20th. Pictures of the talented crew of young watchmakers were shot at their watchmaking benches at many iconic and historical relics in the city, mixing the traditional Swiss craft and the deep cultural richness of Beijing. Following the shoot, the Zen Living Space was transformed into a GP World to showcase the exquisite timepieces and profound cultural foundation of Girard-Perregaux. Guests enjoyed participating in one-on-one workshop, learning about the sophisticated structure of watch movements, and the built movements on their own under the guidance of the brand’s talented watchmakers.



Girard-Perregaux believes that the new generation of young watchmakers can passionately perform multiple roles, which are just as colorful and diverse as the precious Girard-Perregaux watches they build. They perfectly interpret the classical combination of watchmaking and their innovative spirit, full of vitality.

Dominique Loiseau, Girard-Perregaux’s famed watchmaker, also joined and hosted an in-depth discussion with Mr. Alexandre Bigler, watch expert from Christie’s Hong Kong. Their discussion included timing art, machine manufacturing and the inheritance of classics, as well as Girard-Perregaux’s 221-year tradition and Loiseau’s vision for the future development of the Brand. A legend in the watchmaking world, Mr. Dominique Loiseau has been engaged in the watch-making industry for more than 30 years giving birth to some of the most amazing contemporary creations

The New Face of Tradition, Eight Young Watchmakers and the Art of Making Time: The journal and The Girard-Perregaux Young Watchmakers Tour was launched at Cipriani Dolci in New York City on May 1st 2012. The Cipriani Grand Central location was transformed into a Swiss atelier where guests were able to participate in an in-depth one-on-one workshop with four young watchmakers. They demonstrated the intricacies of the movements and included hands-on lessons. In addition, Girard-Perregaux showcased the latest 2012 novelties and Museum pieces from its historical archives.

New York City was the first stop of The Girard-Perregaux Young Watchmakers Tour. The watchmakers were photographed throughout New York City, bringing watchmaking to locations such as the Brooklyn Bridge, Times Square, Wall Street and others. The watchmakers were shot on their workbenches in the midst of the city that never sleeps. The New Face of Tradition is a first in the luxury watchmaking industry, highlighting not only the work of the incredibly talented watchmakers in their famed Manufacture based in La Chaux-de-Fonds, but also the diversity of passions these artisans possess. From rock & roll stars to puzzle masters and international alpine horn champions, the young watchmakers are as multi-faceted as the Girard-Perregaux luxury timepieces they create.

Longines Ambassador of Elegance Ingeborga Dapkunaite at Royal Ascot

For the sixth consecutive year, Swiss luxury watch brand Longines was delighted to have been the Official Timekeeper for Royal Ascot. This year, Royal Ascot was an even more elegant affair with the attendance of Longines Ambassador of elegance actress Ingeborga Dapkunaite on Tuesday 19th June. Naturally elegant, the talented Russian actress has been devoting her charm and grace to Longines since 2005 and has starred in a number of Hollywood films including Seven Years in Tibet and Mission Impossible.

It was her first visit to the prestigious race course and to the UK with Longines so she took great pleasure in welcoming guests to an elegant reception in the Royal Enclosure. Guests enjoyed the racing, fashions of Ascot and betting on the favourites throughout the day. Ingeborga then entertained guests at a gala dinner held at the magnificent Avington Park, a Georgian manor overlooking sweeping lawns and a lake, the perfect English Countryside retreat.



Royal Ascot is the perfect venue for the Swiss watchmaker to present the new Longines collection named after the origins of the brand. This, the Longines Saint-Imier Collection was created to highlight the heritage of the company which was founded in the Swiss village of Saint-Imier in 1832 and stays true to Longines historical values of tradition, elegance and sport’s timekeeping. With Longines being the only watchmaking company that was set up and still remains in Saint-Imier, The Longines Saint-Imier Collection is formed by a series of exceptional timepieces fitted with mechanical movements, in an homage to the brand’s historical home. The shape of the case – inspired by a model dating from 1945 – is a common theme throughout the collection and the distinctive lugs provide these new models with a subtle balance between classical and contemporary design.

HUBLOT KING POWER 48 MM OCEANOGRAPHIC 4000 KING GOLD WHITE

Swiss watch brand Hublot adds a new King Gold White model to its Oceanographic 4000 line that was created in association with the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco in 2011. This exceptional diver's watch has a water resistant to the pressure exerted at the record depth of 4,000 metres and also meets exacting specifications of the international standards of Swiss watchmaking (NIHS).

Starting with its seal, tested by Hublot in a Roxer tank, submerged and pressurised to the equivalent of 5,000 metres. To ensure the watertightness of the watch and to resist this extreme pressure, the synthetic sapphire crystal is 6.5 thick. This is thicker than normal, but is reasonable for this level of resistance. The case back is screw-down, a sine qua non for reaching such depths. It is made of grade 2 titanium, an extremely strong stainless material.

As its case is made of King Gold (18K gold with 5% of platinum which gives this special intense red color), the Oceanographic 4000 is still light on the wrist - although its diameter of 48 mm and its volume is substantial.



From the brightness standpoint, the time and elapsed time measured by the flange must be legible from a distance of 25 cm in the dark. To meet this requirement, the dial, the flange and the hands of the Oceanographic 4000 have been optimised to have a larger surface area treated with SuperLuminova™, a luminescent material emitting a white colour.

The reading method has been made as safe as possible, using an internal rotating flange which is unidirectional and rack-driven, with a dive time indicator. The dive time indicator being placed as close as possible to the dial minimises the risk of inadvertently altering the dive time.

It also makes the dive time easier to read. In accordance with the standard, the Oceanographic 4000 has a minute scale on which the five-minute periods are clearly highlighted. The watch is fitted with two screw-down crowns (a protective measure that helps ensure water resistance by compression of an O-ring seal).The flange crown which sets the dive time is placed at the 2 o'clock position for easy access and more comfortable use. It is unidirectional, again for safety reasons, with a bayonet fitting and protected by an oversized crown guard, for extra safety and easy operation when handling diving equipment. The second crown, for winding and setting the time and date, is positioned at 4 o'clock to avoid obstruction.

Finally, the Oceanographic 4000 has a helium valve, a feature essential to any diving watch capable of descending to great depths.An essential feature when the watch is used in diving chambers, the helium valve allows gases that have infiltrated the watch during the descent to safely escape during the ascent. The valve fitted to the Oceanographic 4000 is made of stainless steel, positioned at 10 o'clock, visible from the left-hand side lug.

The watch comes with two tongue and buckle straps ("Town" & "Diver"). This type of fastening is more secure than a folding clasp for this type of use, and is also easier to handle and close when using gloves. Note that the design of this buckle is original (because the use of a tongue is rare in the normal Hublot collections) and that its method of attachment to the case is even more so with two small push buttons built into each end of the case to allow the strap to be changed instantly without the use of a screwdriver or any other accessory. The "Town" strap is in white rubber. The "Diver" strap, a blend of white rubber and Nomex™, longer than a standard strap, has been developed to be worn over a diving suit up to 8 mm thick.

Piaget Jewelry and Watches Sparkle at 15th Shanghai International Film Festival Along with Glamorous Celebrities of Chinese Film Industry

The 15th Shanghai International Film Festival (SIFF) kicked off at the Shanghai Grand Theatre on June 16, 2012. Over 400 celebrities from home and abroad walked the red carpet at this grand opening ceremony, making the annual “Oriental Oscar Night” more spectacular than ever before. LU Chuan, QIN Lan, HUO Siyan, QIN Hao, SONG Jia, Chie TANAKA, Terri KWAN, Laura WEISSBECKER, YAO Xingtong, Charlene CHOI, Ivy CHEN and Joseph CHENG all opted for Piaget jewelry and watches for the fabulous opening gala.

Chinese stars have made a collective move at SIFF this year. Fresh from their latest film, The Last Supper, famous director, LU Chuan, and actress, QIN Lan, attended the opening ceremony with the regal elegance of an Eastern royal family. LU Chuan paired his black tuxedo with a Piaget Altiplano watch. Exemplified by the flowing contours of a round dial, the simplistic design vividly showcased his fine taste, while the shining watchcase occasionally peaked out from his sleeves hinting at the delicate balance between the discrete and the distinctive. Moreover, the dark brown leather strap was another perfect match for LU Chuan’s attire on that day, which was all about exuding an air of composure and refinement.
