Jacob & Co. Epic X Racing

This year, Jacob & Co. expands the EPIC X collection with the EPIC X Racing, new coloured versions of the EPIC X that take the sporting nature of these timepieces to a new dimension. Introduced in 2013,  the Epic X watches are modern versions of one of the most traditional forms of watchmaking: the open-worked, or skeletonized, watch, where the movement is visible both through the dial and the back of the watch, and, as well, has had as much metal removed as possible without compromising the functionality of the movement. The goal of the craftsperson making an open-worked watch is to achieve the highest level of transparency possible, and it’s this combination of visual lightness with structural integrity that gives this type of watchmaking its fascination.
Unlike most open-worked watches, which are skeletonized versions of normal watches, the Epic X collection is built around a specially constructed movement – the exclusive Jacob and Co. caliber JA, which has been designed as an open-worked caliber from the beginning.

The movement components are supported by two girder-like structures which flank the two most prominent elements in the movement: the mainspring barrel, which stores the energy necessary for the watch to run, and the balance wheel, at 6:00, whose oscillations allow the watch to keep track of time. The high tech nature of the movement contrasts vividly with its meticulous finishing, including carefully chamfered bridges and mirror-polished screws, with the entire composition punctuated by the highly polished settings for the going-train and balance jewels.
The engineers and watchmakers at Jacob & Co. have found a way to add color to the EPIC X, in the form of inserts into the distinctive case, while at the same time using new materials in the case itself. The two case styles are micro-blasted and Satin-finished Grade 5 Titanium (the EPIC X Racing Titanium watches) and Black DLC-coated Grade 5 Titanium (the EPIC X Racing Black timepieces).
The colour is added via inserts that fit into the structured case. In all versions, the right-hand bridge has EPIC X engraved, with matching coloured lacquer on these bridges. Likewise, the engraved Jacob & Co. logo appears on the inside of the case. The colours available in the Titanium (Grade 5 Titanium with coloured rubber inserts) and Black (the black is Black DLC Grade 5 Titanium with coloured Neoralithe inserts) versions are red, blue, orange and white.

GLYCINE F104 (New Models)

The traditional Swiss watch maker GLYCINE is extending its F104 line. With the F104, Glycine pays tribute to the legendary Lockheed F104 aircraft, the leading fighter plane of the 1950s and 1960s.The unmistakable F104 can be identified at first glance thanks to its harmonious yet ergonomic shape and perfectly-balanced dial.

Glycine has recognised the possibilities offered by this timelessly beautiful, unique shape and expanded the F104 family (diameter 48 mm) with the particularly successful smaller version bearing a diameter of 40 mm.

The Glycine F 104 has a flat sapphire crystal as well as a special leather strap in a "pilot look" with two rivets on either side. The glass back, fixed by six screws, allows you to view the fascinating Swiss automatic movement. The polished stainless steel case, which has a rounded shape, looks good on any wrist thanks to the movable lugs. The elegant conical crown - carried over from the original model - adds a touch of nostalgia to this watch, which is waterproof to 3 atm.

With this watch, Glycine will not only make fans of smaller watches happy, but also re-establish itself on the ladies' watch market in an impressive manner, a mere 100 years after it was first founded. The new F104 (40 mm) will be available in the classic steel version with a black, sand-brown or silver white dial or blue and black mother-of-pearl dial with diamonds. And for those who would like something a little more sumptuous, Glycine has a particularly classy piece of jewellery for you with its diamond-studded black case with mother-of-pearl diamonds.

OMEGA De Ville Prestige “Butterfly”

Swiss watch maker OMEGA enhances its Prestige collection with new model De Ville Prestige “Butterfly” which features a delicate butterfly design. The exquisite butterfly motif on the dial is inspired by Chinese popular culture, which associates the delicate being with love and longevity.

This unique wristwatch is presented with an attractive champagne or silvery dial featuring a beautiful butterfly design created using a decorating technique known as ramolayage, or “pounced ornament”.
The polished and domed Roman numeral indexes are plated with rhodium, red gold or yellow gold to correspond to the case and bracelet. Facetted hour, minute and seconds hands match the material of the hour indexes. The dial is also available with eight diamond indexes and Roman numerals at 3,6, 9 and 12 o’clock.

The De Ville Prestige “Butterfly” is available with a polished or diamond-set bezel featuring a polished crown and is presented on a polished bicolour or stainless steel “Prestige” bracelet or a satin-brushed leather strap with a white mother-of-pearl effect.

Patek Philippe - Twenty~4 ®Haute Joaillerie Ref. 4909/110 "Aquatic Life"

Debuted at Baselworld 2014, this Twenty~4® Haute Joaillerie timepiece reflects Patek Philippe’s expertise and know how in the field of high jewellery watches as well as in traditional horology craft. Established since 1839, Patek Philippe has been safeguarding all the artistic skills needed to make the precious inner life of its timepieces visible from the outside, transforming them into the most beautiful and rarest treasures. The sparkling Twenty~4® Haute Joaillerie Ref. 4909/110 is a latest addition to this legacy.

Altogether 1937 diamonds and sapphires grace the dial, case, bracelet, and clasp of the Twenty~4® Haute Joaillerie Ref. 4909/110 with its poetic "Aquatic Life" motif. All gems are flawless and immaculately cut, the baguette diamonds sparkle in Top Wesselton white, and the fire of the sapphires is intensely blue. With a total weight of approximately 43.73 ct., they form a marine still life that was composed in Patek Philippe's design department and implemented in the manufacture's ateliers according to venerable traditions. It shows blue sapphire fishes of various sizes that swim in an ocean of diamonds.

Closed-set baguette diamonds beam on the gently inclined flanks of the 18K white gold case and bracelet. The diamonds in the case are arranged in subtle fan-shaped pattern, which made it necessary to cut every single one to a shape corresponding to its exact location. The baguette diamonds on the upper side of the bracelet and on the dial are invisibly set. The invisible setting is considered one of the most challenging techniques and from the gemsetter's point of view the most risk-fraught way to set gems. To make sure all stones are seamlessly joined side-by-side and neither parts of the setting nor the white gold of the case and bracelet can shine through between them, the lapidary must grind a narrow groove into the facet on the underside of each diamond baguette. The counterpart of each groove is a delicate gold clip raised out of the bracelet and case which clamps the precious stone and secures it in its place.

The positions of the countless clips and of the delicate grooves in the diamonds must correspond to fractions of a millimeter to assure that in the end, the set stones are perfectly adjacent to one another. Each of the blue fishes fashioned from rich-blue sapphires is then applied on this sea of diamonds. The smaller ones are navette-cut sapphire solitaires with a closed rose-gold setting. The larger ones are composed of many small brilliant-cut sapphires held by rose-gold bead settings arranged to depict the contours of the fishes and their speckles.

Because fine white diamonds lie beneath these sapphires, the light can easily shine through their blue body colour from below, thus amplifying their colour intensity and brilliance. Additionally, 855 small brilliant-cut diamonds totalling approximately 1.7 ct. glisten vibrantly between the links of the bracelet.

The lavishly finished caliber 16-250 is a manually wound mechanical movement that proudly reveals itself through the case back. The two bridges and the balance cock feature round-chamfered and polished edges. Their surfaces are adorned with Geneva striping. Gleaming red bearing jewels provide colorful accents while the balance, the center wheel, and the engravings on the bridges emanate a golden sheen. But above all, it is a mechanical movement crafted to the finest watchmaking standards, one which showcases its functionality: the balance, that vibrates 28,800 times an hour (4 Hz) and with an anchor-shaped lever transmits each semi-oscillation to the escape wheel, which in turn transmits each impulse via the fourth wheel to the third wheel and then to the center and hour wheels that carry the minute and hour hands. The two baton-style hands and the applied Roman numerals at XII and IV in 18K rose gold are typical design features of Patek Philippe's iconic Twenty~4® ladies' watch collection.

When Antoine-Norbert de Patek established the Patek Philippe manufacture 175 years ago, he clearly formulated his objective: "to build the world's best and most beautiful watches". This credo explicitly defines a watch as the totality of its mechanical inner life and the facets of its external appearance. It is an aspiration that has remained unchanged and is expressed in writing in the Directives of the Patek Philippe Seal. For this reason, the focus throughout the years was not only on watchmaking artistry.

Great emphasis was also placed on the many highly specialized artisanal techniques with which movements and cases were refined. They include different enameling arts such as painting on enamel, cloisonné enamel, champlevé enamel, relief and line engraving, guilloching, as well as the jeweller’s and gemsetter's handcrafts. As the demand for lavishly decorated timepieces waned in the 20th century and the community of gifted finissage artists grew smaller, the manufacture still retained their services. This was the case even if the results could not be sold and in the end were added to the private collection of the company's owners, the Stern family. Quite a few of these creations are now highly admired exhibits in the Patek Philippe Museum and so precious that it is justifiable to call them priceless. But perhaps the most important aspect is that, thanks to Patek Philippe's commitment, the last of these artisans were able to pass on their expertise to younger talent, preserving their valuable know-how for current and future generations. These rare handcrafts represent a cultural heritage without which Swiss watchmaking artistry would not have attained its globally unique status.

Jacob & Co. Epic X Tourbillon Baguette

The EPIC X collection, first introduced last year, was definitely unexpected from Jacob & Co. The brand has become famous for spectacular jewelry creations and larger-than-life, unique watches like the famous 2006 world premier Quentin Vertical Tourbillion 31-day power reserve. At the same time, Jacob & Co. has emphasized creating high watchmaking pieces of mechanical art. A unique combination of watchmaking and sport, the EPIC X caught the attention of people who were looking for a serious timepiece that could be worn just about anywhere – and still make a statement.

This year, Jacob & Co. expands this collection with the EPIC X Tourbillon Baguette (in two versions), which takes the nature of these timepieces to a new, sparkling dimension. The Epic X timepieces are modern versions of one of the most traditional forms of watchmaking: the openworked, or skeletonized, watch, where the movement is visible both through the dial and the back of the watch, and, as well, has had as much metal removed as possible without compromising the functionality of the movement. The goal of the craftsperson making an open-worked watch is to achieve the highest level of transparency possible, and it’s this combination of visual lightness with structural integrity that gives this type of watchmaking its fascination.
A skeletonized manually-wound tourbillon movement is the biggest treat of all, as the spinning tourbillon adds a kinetic element that captivates and mystifies.

Jacob & Co. adorned the watch with incredible baguette stones – diamonds and rubies or diamonds and blue sapphires. The 44mm 18K white gold case is set with baguette stones and the two vertical bridges in the movement are set with ruby or sapphire baguettes. The timepiece comes on either a honeycomb rubber or alligator strap, set with baguette diamonds.

Jacob & Co. Palatial Opera Flying Tourbillon

The Jacob & Co. Palatial Opera flying tourbillon is an exquisite masterpiece that reflects the high standards of horology and gem-setting techniques. Constructed to resemble an amphitheatre, every superbly executed detail has been designed and crafted to invite the apparently free-standing or flying tourbillon to take center stage.

While a traditional tourbillon is held in place by a bridge, a flying tourbillon is designed to appear as if it is floating above the dial of the watch.The exacting art of delicately hand-setting precious gems simultaneously elevates this watch into the status of a rare and magnificent jewel.
Behind the scenes at the Jacob & Co. Geneva, Switzerland atelier, micro-mechanical engineers and gem setters working on the Palatial Opera Flying Tourbillon employed a repertoire of complicated diamond setting techniques to plan in advance the precise angle, position and cut for every stone, one diamond at a time, creating special tools as part of the process.

The smooth appearance of the fully set diamond pavé dial is the culmination of 18 months of work. The invisible setting of the baguette diamonds, with no visible rose gold in between each one, extends all the way across the watch dial to include the tilted inner bezel. In this row of dazzling diamonds that shines the spotlight on the tourbillon, resting precisely between the tourbillon cage and the outer bezel, each baguette diamond is set at a slightly different angle, requiring knowledge, experience and the patient work of dexterous hands.
The Jacob & Co. logo is set on the pavé dial giving the impression that it is hovering just above it. Every carefully selected baguette diamond is internally flawless, Top Wesselton AVVS quality. In a measure of its outstanding performance, the watch has a power reserve of 100 hours and is finished with a baguette-set buckle and a rose cut diamond on the crown.

Jacob & Co. Brilliant Skeleton Baguette

Adorned with 260 gemstones on its case, bezel, crown and buckle, the Jacob & Co. Brilliant Skeleton Baguette reflects a successful alliance between the classic skeletonising techniques and the jeweller’s art of meticulous, invisible gem setting.
The Brilliant Skeleton Baguette shines the limelight on every lovingly crafted component of the movement through its sapphire crystal front and case back. As is the tradition with skeleton watches, all non-essential metal on mechanical parts of the watch has been trimmed away, including on the bridge, plate and wheel train, leaving just the barest skeleton of the spectacularly executed movement that makes the watch tick, with the hand-wound balance wheel fully visible at 6 o’ clock.
Thanks to the dedicated, detailed work by gifted gem setters in the Jacob & Co. Geneva atelier, who have over half a century of experience between them, the invisible setting of the baguette diamonds, with no visible gold in between each one, has resulted in a breathtaking bezel with an alluring, tactile quality and a super smooth finish.
The Jacob & Co. Brilliant Skeleton Baguette is available in a limited edition of 101 individually numbered watches. The watch is available in rose or white gold and the crown is topped with a rose cut gemstone.
Precious gemstone and alligator leather strap options: white diamonds with black strap, rubies with green strap, orange sapphires with brown strap, blue sapphires with white strap, pinks sapphires with green strap, tsavorites with brown strap.

Jacob & Co. Brilliant Skeleton Northern Lights

Created for ultra modern women who love high end horology creations with a fashionable twist, the Jacob & Co. Brilliant Skeleton Northern Lights collection comprises five meticulously crafted manual winding skeleton watches, each one bursting with vibrant colour.
The Northern Lights is an inspirational natural phenomenon in regions of high latitude that fills the sky with surges of rich colored lights above the clouds. Reflecting the extraordinary hues of these captivating lights, the dial above the movement is made of hi-tech mineral crystal in a choice of red, green, yellow and blue - colors that echo the magnificent, iconic design of one of Jacob & Co.’s earliest watches, the Five Time Zone collection.
The watch is also available without mineral crystal resting above the movement, leaving the skeleton’s mesmerizing, meticulously polished and beveled architecture entirely open.
Every intricately crafted moving component of the Brilliant Skeleton Northern Lights is in plain sight through both the front of the watch and its sapphire crystal case-back. As is the tradition with skeleton watches, all non-essential metal on mechanical parts of the watch has been trimmed away, including on the bridge, plate and wheel train, leaving just the barest skeleton of the spectacularly executed movement that makes the watch tick, with the hand-wound balance wheel fully visible at 6 o’ clock.
The coloured mineral crystal used by the Jacob & Co. Geneva atelier in the Brilliant Skeleton Northern Lights collection is a material used in machinery for medicine, chosen for its ability to reproduce remarkably vivid colour.
With a 46 hour power reserve, the Jacob & Co. Brilliant Skeleton Northern Lights is encircled with rows of 360 pavé diamonds meticulously set on the stainless steel bezel and case, along with 76 diamonds on the buckle. The collection is offered with sumptuous satin straps in an extensive selection of colour options.

Jacob & Co. Brilliant Arlequino Flying Tourbillon

In the Brilliant Arlequino Flying Tourbillon timepiece, Jacob & Co. poetically merges the exceptional gem-setting artistry with spectacular high horology. This model is a daring, imaginative and enticingly feminine timepiece that echoes the richly coloured, chequered costume of a harlequin.

Produced in a limited edition of just 18 watches, and available in  18K white, rose or yellow gold versions, this sparkling and colourful timepiece is adorned with 205 vibrant, precious gemstones extending across its dial, bezel, crown and clasp. The flying tourbillon, constructed to appear as if it is floating above the dial of the watch, is a statement of the passion for extraordinary craftsmanship which lies at the heart of Jacob & Co. atelier.
The setting combinations of gemstones, which each have different levels of resistance to pressure is a mission that can only be undertaken by a master craftsperson with extensive experience. Like the original harlequins known for their physical agility on stage, the gem setters in the Jacob & Co. Geneva, Switzerland-atelier working on the Brilliant Arlequino watches had to constantly adapt their techniques to meet the specific demands of every gemstone, one by one – a task that requires patience, knowledge and agile, dexterous hands.
The invisible setting of the baguette diamonds, which leaves no visible precious metal in between each gemstone, forms part of a carefully constructed design that reveals just the rose gold of the crown, topped with a rose cut yellow sapphire. Adorned with sparkling white diamonds and pink, blue, green and orange sapphires, the Jacob & Co. Brilliant Flying Tourbillon is also available in fully pave, single-gemstone versions in a choice of ruby, blue sapphire, pink sapphire or orange sapphire.

Jacob & Co. Astronomia Tourbillion

Representing the pinnacle of watchmaking craftsmanship and the horological decorative arts, the Astronomia Tourbillion is an exceptional timepiece that redefines both the tourbillon and the concept of astronomical watches. This poetic astronomic watch combines a three axis tourbillon with an orbital display of the hours and minutes as well as an orbital representation of the Earth and the Moon. For the development of this highly complex mechanical system, Jacob & Co. worked with the horological atelier of Studio 7H38 –its collaborator in the development of last year’s SF24 dual time-zone watch.

The heart of the Astronomia is a four-armed carrier, which rotates once every twenty minutes. On one arm is the tourbillon, which in addition to rotating once around the dial every twenty minutes, also rotates around the dial every twenty minutes, also rotates around the axis of the arm carrying it once every five minute, and around its axis once every 60 seconds.
The tourbillon carriage is finished to the highest haute horlogerie standards, and constructed according to those standards as well, with a large, screw-poised balance beating at 18,000 vibrations per hour, and with an over coil balance spring featuring a mathematically correct Phillips terminal curve. Opposite the balance is the dial showing the hours and minutes. The open worked dial makes for a beautifully visually balanced counter point to the revolving tourbillon carriage and its Roman numerals lend a touch of classicism and formal beauty to the overall design.
The dial is mounted on a different platform which causes it to rotate as the central carrier turns this ensures that the 12:00 marker is always uppermost and that the time can always be easily read. Two celestial objects complete the composition: the Earth, and the Moon. The Moon is represented by a spherical, briolette-cut diamond which, in addition to rotating around the dial once every 20 minutes on the carrier, also rotates its own axis once every 60 seconds, with each of its 56 facets constantly catching and refracting the light, produce a spectacular kinetic display of diamond’s radiance.

The earth, which rotates once every seconds on its own axis is represented by a globe made of white gold, with the oceans represented by deep blue, translucent grand feu champlevé enamel.
The backdrop to this tour-de-force display of mechanical art is a dial of deep blue aventurine – a precious stone that contains tiny inclusions of sparkling minerals that give it the appearance of a midnight sky dusted with stars.  The entire dazzling mechanical display takes place under a complex, highly domed sapphire crystal, almost hemispherical in shape.

The  47mm  case  is  kept  both  light,  and  strong,  through  the  use  of  a sophisticated polycarbonate composite strengthened with diamond dust, and is enhanced with 18k rose gold.

DIETRICH 1969 - Organic Time Companion Model A (OTC-A)

Founded by Emmanuel Dietrich, the Zug (Switzerland) based watch brand DIETRICH 1969 produces exceptional timepieces based around the concept of “Organic Time Companions”. DIETRICH 1969 made its public debut in 2012 at both Basel World and the Geneva Time Exhibition (GTE).

This year, DIETRICH 1969 is introducing their first complex watch the Organic Time Companion Model A (OTC-A) to the market. Designed and engineered in Switzerland, the watch is framed in micro-beads blasted steel. DIETRICH1969’s OTC-A timepiece combines impeccable performance with affordable luxury.
Inspired by the organic curves found in nature, the OTC-A’s design echoes the contained tension of time. Crafted for the modern trendsetter seeking refinement and utility, DIETRICH 1969’s latest addition offers a timepiece that can accompany it’s wearer from life in the city, to an escape into the landscape.
Featuring an open worked dial design, the OTC-A timepiece beats to the rhythm of a modified Myota 82-S-7 automatic mechanical movement, which is visible though the sapphire glass face. The Night luminescent “Superluminova” is found throughout the watch, from the indexes to the hands, resulting in an easy to read dial.
Crown sealed with a double O-ring, the OTC-A is water resistant up to 50 meters. The OTC Model A is available in three-color variations: silver palette, or confident black and red model.
Lacing through the center of the instrument’s case is the watch’s band, available in either a Nato type Nylon, or carbon-finished leather.

ANONIMO MILITARE

The MILITARE was created in 2001.Having collaborated for several years with Italian navy divers, Anonimo wanted to develop a diver's watch with a crown winding system. The team of Italian designers therefore set to work on the project. The watch had to have flawless technical qualities in order to perform in conditions of extreme stress. Yet the designers were aiming for complete simplicity of use, and for the technical aspects to be hidden behind the attractive design. This very Italian philosophy dominated the creation of the product and had a marked impact on its appearance.

The crown, protected between the side contacts of the case, can be accessed very easily via the adjustable hinges. The patented system guarantees the water resistance of the case by closing it with one click. A distinctive sign, a signature which, associated with the cushion case and its 43 mm dial, is recognisable at a glance and gives the Militare quite a presence on the wrist.
