  • Ulysse Nardin Marine Grand Deck Tourbillon

    Ulysse Nardin has been inspired by the world of boating at least a few dozen times over the years, and new interpretations continue to manifest from that, such as this Ulysse Nardin Grand Deck Marine Tourbillon in 44 mm white gold case. This happens to be the first time Ulysse Nardin has introduced a new complication into the Marine case collection. The watch works as a series of "nanowires" act to pull a blued-aluminum retrograde minute hand, which is meant to act like a ship's boom. The dial miniaturizes elements of the deck of a classic racing yacht, including a wood deck, winches, lines and a mainsail boom. The dial is made of inlaid wood in a color and curved design intended to resemble the deck of a classic yacht. A blue aluminum minutes hand represents the boom, the horizontal spar used to angle the mainsail on a racing boat. It swings down from the 12 o’clock position, sweeping across a retrograde minutes scale that extends from 3 to 6 o’clock. It is literally pulled across the scale by strong high-tech fibers that wrap around two “rigging screws” and two pinions designed to resemble – and function as – the winches on the deck of a racing yacht. The lines of the winches are made of polyethylene Dyneema®, a fiber used in ship’s rigging that is many times stronger than steel. Once the boom reaches the 60-minute position, it jumps back to zero in about 4 seconds – a delay that is calibrated with a special regulator that maintains the accuracy of the minutes. The minutes scale is made of a translucent blue crystal so as not to interfere with the view of the “deck.” The hour is displayed as a jumping hour in a double window just above the minutes. A corrector positioned at 2 o’clock on the case side can be used to set the time. The Ulysse Nardin logo appears on the upper dial between two floating maritime symbols, spelled according to the nautical alphabet that was used in classic ship’s chronometers – such as those historically produced by Ulysse Nardin. The watch will be made in limited editions of 18 pieces in white gold.

  • IWC Ingenieur Chronograph “50th Anniversary of Mercedes-AMG”

    IWC Schaffhausen has been the official engineering partner of the Mercedes AMG Petronas Formula One team since 2013. The partnership is founded on the many parallels that exist between motor sport’s premier competition and the world of haute horology. The development of high-performance cars and the multiple facets of the motor racing and haute horology worlds have much in common: they both depend on high-tech materials, world-class engineering, ultimate performance and ongoing innovation. A masterpiece of engineering, the Mercedes F1 W06 Hybrid Silver Arrow, for instance, comprises over 3000 individual parts. It is equipped with innovative technologies and high-tech materials such as titanium aluminide, ceramic, and carbon fiber. IWC Schaffhausen likewise integrates extremely durable materials into its mechanical timepieces. These improve the service life of the components or enable the creation of eye-catching cases and designs. In Formula 1, as in the watch industry, the focus is likewise on teamwork. Motor sport brings together the world’s best engineers and designers with material and aerodynamics specialists. By the same token, IWC’s complex and intricate masterpieces of haute horology can only come into being through the collective expertise of high-caliber specialists representing many different disciplines.

    The IWC Ingenieur Chronograph titanium Sport Edition “50th Anniversary of Mercedes-AMG” is reminiscent of the first Ingenieur models from the 1950s. The watch has a 44.3 mm titanium case with distinctive vintage look. Aside from that, it has a flyback function and is equipped with one of the most efficient movements manufactured entirely by IWC, the 89361 caliber that grants automatic movement with 68 hours power reserve. It also features a tachymeter scale that, when used together with the stopwatch hand, allows the wearer to calculate the average speed covered over a distance of 1,000 meters. The protection against magnetic fields on the case back is inspired by the carbon brake discs that feature on Mercedes-AMG cars. This model is limited to 250 pieces worldwide.

  • Omega Planet Ocean "Big Blue"

    Last year, Omega introduced the Seamaster Planet Ocean “Deep Black” edition – a GMT dive watch with all black ceramic construction. Building on that concept, Omega released the Planet Ocean “Big Blue” this time to leverage Omega’s expertise in ceramics and watchmaking.

    This model is almost identical that opts for rich blue ceramic instead of black, with bright orange accents and a movement that shows off Omega’s technical prowess. It is a combination GMT and divers’ watch that delivers bold style and innovative design. The 45.5 mm case is made from blue ceramic, whith a blue ceramic bezel featuring a Liquidmetal™ diving scale. Just below the center point of the dial there is a chemical symbol for zirconium dioxide, the type of ceramic from which the dial and case are constructed, but in a tonal color so it doesn’t stand out too much. A blend of orange rubber and ceramic covers the first 15 minutes, while orange rubber also colors the Omega logo on the crown and helium escape valve symbol. On the wave-edged caseback, there is a patented ceramic Naiad Lock that keeps the engraved wording in position. Through the see-through case back, you can see the Omega 8906 caliber which offers self-winding movement with Co-Axial escapement and 60 hours power reserve. The “Big Blue” also carries the Master Chronometer certification, created by Omega in partnership with METAS. The blue rubber strap with orange stitching and orange edges has been designed to give the appearance of being fabric. It is treated with an anti-bacterial coating, features a wave pattern on the underside and is held to the wrist by a blue ceramic foldover clasp.

  • Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Compressor Extreme LAB 2

    Jaeger-LeCoultre released a new titanium and blue version of its most impressive sport watch – Master Compressor Extreme LAB 2(Ref. Q203T541). It is a radically different watch in JLC’s collection. The watch is “mechanically complicated, conceptually innovative, and stylistically interesting”. The Extreme LAB 2 is JLC’s successor to the revolutionary Extreme Lab, a technological masterpiece in 2007. A mechanical watch requiring absolutely no lubrication ofver its lifetime, the original Extreme LAB showcased what the JLC manufacture is capable of. Reflecting the innovation within, JLC’s two Extreme LAB watches also feature high-tech aesthetics with case and dial designs unlike any others within their product portfolio.

    22365

    Jaeger-LeCoultre created the Extreme LAB 2 as a tribute to a historical watch from its past, the Chronomètre Geophysic. Launched in 1958, the same year NASA was formed, the Geophysic was introduced during an era in which the planet’s limits were being explored like never before. As a certified chronometer, it was a robust tool watch intended for scientists’ use in extreme environments while conducting geophysical experiments around the world. The 46.8 mm case of Extreme LAB 2 was made of a special titanium and vanadium alloy exclusive to JLC – TiVan15. The outer case is 15% more scratch resistant than cases crafted from traditional titanium. A pusher integrated within the ceramic crown allows the user to select one of three positions: winding (labeled as N), GMT function, and time setting. A transparent sapphire crystal dial allows a full view of the in-house JLC caliber 781. There is also a “hidden” complication which is the stop seconds feature (hacking seconds) designed to make it easy to set the time precisely. Pulling out the crown of the movement resets the seconds indicator disc but allows the minute hand to continue moving. The idea is to allow you to set the time as precisely as you can without having to wait.

  • Grand Seiko Hi-Beat 36000

    A 10 beat caliber beats at ten times a second, a rate substantially faster than that of ordinary mechanical movements. While the faster vibration rate makes a watch more resilient to shock and thus more accurate, it also consumes more power from the mainspring and demands greater resiliency from other components. For half a century, Grand Seiko mainsprings have been manufactured in house. Using all this experience, a new alloy was created for the 9S mainspring which has the strength and durability to deliver 55 hours of power reserve and to do for generations.

    The SBGJ217 is an iconic piece of the Grand Seiko Hi-Beat 36000 GMT series. The 39.5 mm stainless steel case of this piece classically pairing with the retro-modern Grand Seiko style dial that matches any attire. Like every Grand Seiko watch, it offers highly polished, distortion-free surfaces, razor edged hands for high legibility and perfect comfort on the wrist. The long and slim markers provide a clean and refined expression. The hi-beat GMT movement 9S86 is designed, made, assembled, adjusted and tested at the Shizuku-Ishi Watch Studio in where all Grand Seiko mechanical watches are manufactured and assembled, by hand, by the studio’s craftsmen and women. In both performance and appearance, it expresses the very best of Seiko’s mechanical watchmaking. The caliber has a high accuracy of +5 to-3 seconds a day and a power reserve of 55 hours with 36,000 vibrations per hour at 10 beats per second. The GMT hand can be used as a dual time indicator with the hour hand being adjustable independently as the time of day hands continue to mark time. It is the perfect watch for international travelers.

  • Patek Philippe Basel 2017

    To salute the 40th anniversary of its acclaimed self-winding caliber 240 movement, at this Basel, the new Patek Philippe Calatrava (Ref. 6006G) made its debut. The watch has an analog date and an offset subsidiary seconds dial. The graphic look of the dial in ebony black and silvery grey is reminiscent of the legendary Ref. 5000 that was launched in 1991 and followed by the Ref. 6000 in 2005.
