Jaeger-LeCoultre Duomètre Unique Travel Time An original world-time display system Celebrated Its Fourth Year As Major Partner Of The Abu Dhabi Film Festival Following the successful collaboration with the Shanghai and Venice Film Festivals. Jaeger-LeCoultre further supports the creative ingenuity of filmmakers with its four-year partnership with the 8th Abu Dhabi Film Festival. From October 23rd to November 1st 2014, Jaeger-LeCoultre was actively involved in all the highlights of the Abu Dhabi Film Festival, one of the largest and most influential international film festivals in the Middle East. To celebrate this four-year partnership, Jaeger-LeCoultre was honored to welcome Carmen Chaplin, Friend of the Brand, as guest of honour during the Abu Dhabi Film Festival. Belonging to a long lineage of artists, Carmen Chaplin, Charlie Chaplin’s granddaughter, followed her grandfather’s path and also became an actress, director and writer.

The Abu Dhabi Film Festival was also an occasion for JaegerLeCoultre to showcase the Hybris Artistica collection. To stay in a range of refinement, Jaeger-LeCoultre also presented the eleventh piece of the Hybris Mechanica collection, the Master Ultra Minute Repeater Flying Tourbillon, and the Rendez-Vous Ivy Minute Repeater, the first minute repeater to make it entry in a feminine collection. Adorned with a sunburst guilloché ivy motif, this timepiece cultivates the power of the imagination and a legendary aura in order to give time its rightful place. Warmer, richer, sweeter, inherently feminine – the melody played by the Rendez-Vous Ivy Minute Repeater stirs the heartstrings and the ear in unison. The iconic Reverso was also part of the celebration, as JaegerLeCoultre, loyal supporter of the Arab community.

The Grande Maison in the Vallée de Joux undeniably owes its incredible destiny to the inventive spirit of its founder, Antoine LeCoultre. Since 1833, every watch bearing the Jaeger-LeCoultre signature is crafted with the same passion, guided by a constant quest for technical enhancement. Each masterpiece, heir to over 180 years of expertise, benefits from state-of-the-art research. A fresh interpretation of the revolutionary Dual-Wing movement, the Duomètre Unique Travel Time watch in pink gold reflects the technical breakthroughs achieved by the Manufacture in the field of worldtime watches and offers original solutions for travellers with a love of Fine Watchmaking. The Duomètre Unique Travel Time is the first world-time watch enabling to-theminute adjustment of the second time zone. This enables travellers to accurately set the second time zone on all continents and countries regardless of the time difference. In keeping with the technical and aesthetic spirit of the creations by the Duomètre line signed Jaeger-LeCoultre, the Duomètre Unique Travel Time watch reveals the various facets of horological excellence by the Manufacture in the Vallée de Joux. It asserts itself as an absolute reference in terms of mechanical watchmaking and of the intrinsic elegance with which all creations from the Grande Maison have been imbued since 1833. Past, present and future converge in perfect harmony in this exceptional creation.
For this movement, the Dual-Wing system is divided into two distinct mechanisms: the first is devoted to displaying the local time, and the second to showing that in a second time zone. The two mechanisms share the same regulating organ but each has its own independent source of energy, thereby avoiding the losses due to interaction between the mechanisms. The operation of the dual time-zone display does not in any way influence the running of the watch, a fact that considerably enhances the precision of the watch. Each mechanism has a 50-hour power reserve and, governed by a wish to achieve ideal userfriendliness, the same crown serves to wound both barrels. The timekeeping barrel is wound by a counter-clockwise rotation, and the travel-time barrel by a clockwise rotation. Given the complexity of the functions, the finely grained dial provides impeccable clarity. Two magnificent symmetrically arranged subdials lend a perfectly balanced touch to this horological creation: the first subdial at 2 o’clock sets the stage for the hour and minute hand; while the second at 10 o’clock hosts the jumping hour and minutes of the travel time. The globe at 6 o’clock displays a world map surrounded by the time-zone indications and the day/night ring. The globe is synchronised with the travel time. The single crown is used to adjust the local time in position 2 and the travel time in position 1, and, as well as to wind the mainsprings when in position 0. Once both time zones are synchronised, the traveller can simply use the push-pieces at 8 and 10 o’clock to adjust the jumping hours in the left subdial according to the destination.

Imperial Blue Radiating light, as if suspended in time by a flying tourbillon, this Grande Sonnerie Westminster Carillon bears witness to the ultimate mastery of the watchmaker’s art.
While Grande Sonnerie wristwatches today are the exclusive domain of some half-dozen prestigious manufactures, the invention of this function dates back, paradoxically, to the origins of watchmaking. In around 1300, a century before most dials and hands made their appearance, the first monumental clocks were designed to «sound» the time, so they could be heard from a distance or at night. Over time, the bells on these mechanisms were made increasingly smaller, until they fitted into table-top clocks, then pocket watches.
Energy management was undoubtedly the most difficult aspect of crafting this masterpiece. The sounding of the passing hours, as well as the hours, quarter-hours and minutes on demand, is powered by the same barrel. This barrel is wound either partially by activating the repeater slide on the case middle at 9 o’clock or fully by rotating the crown counterclockwise. When rotated clockwise, the crown winds a second barrel that is dedicated to the movement, with a 50-hour power reserve. Furthermore, an ingenious system controls the level of energy available, thereby always guaranteeing a fully operating Sonnerie. 18
Ulysse Nardin, Six-Time Principal Sponsor of the Monaco Yacht Show, Introduces the Marine Diver – Monaco Limited Edition. In the 19th century, to protect its marine chronometers from the corrosive effect of the salty sea air and to overcome the technical challenges of a floor in constant motion, Ulysse Nardin decided to invest in time. The treasures of audacity and ingenuity it deployed have endured over the centuries. Today, Ulysse Nardin Manufacture not only pays homage to this spirit of innovation and independence that prevailed over its creation, but celebrates it with pride, perpetuating the legend. The official sponsor of the Monaco Yacht Show for six consecutive years, Ulysse Nardin further emphasizes its passion for the marine world with the Marine Diver – Monaco Limited Edition. Everything about this timepiece evokes the marine world in which the Le Locle watchmaker is steeped, starting with Ulysse Nardin’s anchor emblem, proudly displayed at 2 o’clock. The dial, in blue is decorated with a sailing boat-like motif. A wave pattern can be seen on the bezel. The solid case-back reveals an engraving of a boat surrounded by the inscriptions: “Conquer the ocean” and “Monaco”. This embellishes a new case designed for extreme conditions, extended by the lugs with their taut, sleek lines. In terms of performance, the Marine Diver – Monaco Limited Edition requires an exceptional water resistance to 300 meters, made possible thanks to the screw-locked crown and case-back.
The world of fine watchmaking is like a complex maze full of centers of ingenuity, traditional workshops and daring laboratories, interconnected by the long corridors of history. A world populated by passionate, groundbreaking and erudite individuals, both traditional craftspeople and guardians of the vitality of this ancestral art. Within this world, there lies a unique place, the heart of horological excellence, known only by the chosen few. This place is so enchanting that it seems as if natural laws have been suspended, know-how has made way for learning, and apprenticeship has become the handingdown of secrets. Here, in this annex to eternity, the Imperial Blue was born. Showcasing a transparent mainplate on which floats a flying tourbillon, adorned with a blue-tinged sapphire bridge that leaves no room for doubt as to its noble origins, this luminous yet mysterious watch holds within it a Sonnerie Westminster Carillon. The quintessential watch complication, it rings out on four notes for every passing hour and also sounds the hours, quarter hours and minutes on demand. It is an object of immense rarity.
Ulysse Nardin occupies an illustrious place in the history of Sonnerie watches. In 1893, at the Chicago World’s Fair, it was the only watchmaker to win a gold medal for its minute-repeater chronograph. A century later, Ulysse Nardin was also one of the first to revive the tradition of Jaquemart watches, with the San Marco in 1989, followed by the Genghis Khan. Now, once again, the watchmaker has retained its place in the pantheon of fine watchmaking with its Imperial Blue. Not content with the huge number of technical challenges overcome by the miniaturization of this Sonnerie mechanism, which combines a minute-repeater with the sounding of the passing hours, the Ulysse Nardin Manufacture has added a date indicator at 12 o’clock, which can be quickly adjusted using a pusher at 2 o’clock.
Marine Diver - Monaco Limited Edition
Powered by the self-winding caliber UN-26 and with a power reserve of 42 hours, the Marine Diver - Monaco Limited Edition displays, in addition to its time functions, the date in an aperture at 6 o’clock and the power reserve in a counter at 12 o’clock. Limited to 100 pieces, engraved and numerated, available with a rubber strap in blue and red, it is both a highly reliable diving instrument and a fine sports watch that can be worn on every occasion.
Thus, every hour, a delightful sparkling melody “Sol” rises from the watch case. However, if desired, an on-off pusher at 11 o’clock on the back of the case ensures that the mechanical masterpiece stays silent. Perhaps this allows more attention to be paid to the minute-repeater, which on the Imperial Blue features a captivating Westminster chime played on four notes. Once activated and released, the repeater slide instantly sets the hammers dancing and the gongs singing. It is an enchanting symphony, punctuated by the flying tourbillon at 6 o’clock, as if suspended in time, levitating on its sapphire plate. The delicate openwork hour and minute hands are adjusted using the crown, which also features a safety system that stops the sounding of the passing hours while the time is being corrected. In the colors of white-gold and blue-tinged sapphire, bathed in light, the Imperial Blue is a watch for the connoisseur. Just 20 numbered pieces will be produced, each bearing witness to the ultimate mastery of the watchmaker’s art.
Glitz and glamour at the 14th Fraser Yachts Captains’ Dinner and Awards This year the 14th Fraser Yachts Captains’ Dinner took place at the brand new Monaco Yacht Club and welcomed well over 300 guests. Ulysse Nardin, Six-Time Principal Sponsor of the Monaco Yacht Show, took part to the event. The 2014 winning Captain was named as Grahame Shorrocks, from motor yacht Imagine, one of the most stunning vessels in the Fraser Yachts charter fleet. Grahame was welcomed on stage to a round of rapturous applause to collect his prizes. Susanne Hurni from Ulysse Nardin awarded the main prize of a Marine Chronometer Manufacture. After the Awards the buffet was opened and guests enjoyed culinary delights from all around the world while admiring the beautiful views from the terraces of the new Yacht Club. Then the music went up, the lights went down and guests piled onto the dance floor. 19
Supports Artists for Peace and Justice in Hollywood The Swiss watchmaker BOVET 1822 once again supported Artists for Peace and Justice (APJ) by sponsoring the Hollywood Domino pre-Oscar event at the historic Sunset Tower Hotel. Owner of Bovet, Mr. Pascal Raffy, was joined that evening by APJ founder and Academy Award winning director, Paul Haggis and stars supporting the cause including Jon Hamm, Kevin Jonas, Maria Bello, Vanessa Hudgens, Kate Beckinsale, Adrian Brody, Jimmy Jean-Louis, Rumer Willis and Omar Epps.
Collection Dimier Jumping Hour, Retrograde Minute and Seconds Carriage Calibre Virtuoso II Spécialité Horlogère Dimier 1738 Virtuoso II, the new movement manufactured by DIMIER 1738, presented jointly this year with the Récital 12, here underlines its versatility by revealing the first f many personas in conjunction with the Récital 15. While unusual and original, the display mode of this timepiece is familiar to collectors of watchmaking since it is the same as that which has underpinned the success of the Tourbillon Amadeo® Virtuoso since its launch in January 2013. In keeping with the collection’s identity, indications are displayed on the horizontal axis of the timepiece. As we lift our sleeve, the dial reveals hours, minutes and seconds in chronological order. First, the jumping hour, in a separate aperture at 3 o’clock. Also off-centered at 3 o’clock, the retrograde minute which sweeps the left segment of the dial. While making the designers’ task more complex, its long, angular course allows its dial to be clearly graduated despite the reduced size of the latter. For a precise, instantaneous jump, two star-wheels in series regulate the fineness and rapidity of the action. Visible in the centre of the hour and minute circle, they also contribute to perfect synchronization of the jump of the hour disc with the retrograde minute hand. It is precisely this difficulty that makes the simultaneous display of a jumping hour and a retrograde minute so rare in the world of horology.
Pascal Raffy, Kate Beckinsale, Paul Haggis & Kevin Jonas
Having helped raise over $1.7 million in 2013 Bovet hopes to aid in raising even more vital funds this year to continue to support the Academy for Peace and Justice in Haiti, which was created for children affected by the earthquake of 2010. This was the 3rd year in a row Bovet has been the main sponsor of this event and it marked the first part of Bovet’s standing commitment announced this past December for a minimum of 5 years for $5 million of continued support for the charity.
David Belle, Kevin Jonas, Jon Hamm, Pascal Raffy & Paul Haggis
BOVET craftsmen employed all their expertise and experience to accurately convey the intent of the Italian designers and create a dial of spellbinding technical complexity. The finished article, comprising 35 components on five levels, meets all design criteria to the letter (design, volumes, legibility and sportiness). After a night full of passion from all of those who came to support APJ’s mission toward education there was a total of over half a million dollars raised for a truly sweet ending to a beautiful night.
In efforts to further support APJ and with Mr. Raffy’s commitment to providing full and focused support to the cause chosen by BOVET, a handcrafted unique timepiece was offered as the grand prize for the Hollywood Domino Tournament that was held at the culmination of the evening’s event. As additional grace the winner was offered the choice between two timepieces; first was a ladies timepiece, the Miss Audrey which was only released this January 2014 and is the first in the US and the second a Cambiano chronograph designed with Pininfarina which ultimately was given to the winner. The BOVET CAMBIANO self-winding Chronograph which is a 45mm stainless steel timepiece part of the collection designed with the Italian car design House Pininfarina. The superbly proportioned AMADEO® convertible case allows the timepiece to be used as a wristwatch, miniature clock, pocket watch or sports counter. The steel case-band and case-back have a circular satin finish, while the bezel, support, bow and crown are in ball-milled steel with black DLC coating.
Lastly, at 9 o’clock, a small-seconds hand runs continuously across the 360° of its graduated ring. A ring, since its openwork centre reveals the same intriguing coaxial mechanical ballet as that described by the gear-trains of the Récital 12, so intriguing that one is tempted to turn the timepiece over to see more. On the back of the timepiece, the sapphire case-back confirms that this is indeed the in-house specialties caliber, since it presents the characteristic features of the Récital 12 movement, albeit cased-up here the other way round. The view of the barrel, the
visible sprung-balance and the five-day chronometric powerreserve indicator confirm the ability of this caliber to adapt to the inspiration of Pascal Raffy and his teams. The sheer density of technical virtuosity and tradition contained in the Récital 15 within such a small volume is astonishing. However, the triple seconds-hand, present on the rear of the timepiece, reveals to us its most cherished secret. The object of an international patent, this seconds-hand runs on the reverse of the movement on the same axis as the secondshand of the other face. A remarkable feature would not exist if the direction of rotation of the hands was not also reversed. Named “seconds cage” because its kinematics looks like those of a tourbillon, this coaxial reverse seconds-hand reveals once again the ingenuity of its designers and the extent of the expertise of watchmakers at the Manufacture DIMIER 1738. The time and care devoted to every detail of the design, from the manufacture to the decoration of the “seconds cage” allowed watchmakers to achieve a level of efficiency on par with that of a traditional gear-train. All 2014 collections give pride of place to the artisans of the Manufacture de Haute Hologerie Artisanale, DIMIER 1738. Here, dial-makers demonstrate a passion for perfection which is rarely encountered. Two slender white or black lacquered rings share the indication of hours, minutes and seconds.

Cat’s Eye Day & Night
Traveller Large Date, Moon Phases & GMT The Traveller Large Date, Moon Phases & GMT model has been conceived by Swiss watchmaker GirardPerregaux as the latest in a long line of watch creations specifically designed by the brand over the years with the international traveling public in mind. This high-performing timepiece is constructed especially to accompany the planet’s globe-trotting citizens on the road to adventure. With its evocative name, its contemporary-sized 44 mm case available in steel, in pink gold or in a limited edition dedicated to John Harrison to mark the 300th anniversary of the Longitude Act, its role as an invitation to travel is clearly displayed for all to see.
Long-distance travel Conceived to meet the needs of long-distance travelers, the Traveller Large Date, Moon Phases & GMT watch aspires to be accepted into the lives of those who have chosen it, just like any other much-loved possession performing an essential function, which explains why this new timepiece in the Traveller Collection is made to both to sit easily on the wrist and to catch the eye of watch connoisseurs in the kind of location where this model is most likely to be worn. An obvious choice for airport lounges, very much at home in the lobbies of grand international hotels and an invaluable companion for journeys across the planet, this watch is destined to be synchronized to local time wherever it is, since it is a timepiece that is perfectly attuned to its era. Urban by vocation and totally at ease in its home environment, all it needs is a simple invitation to go on a trip or attend a meeting – little matter if it’s in a neighboring country or on the other side of the world – and all its huge potential and ability to adapt soon make themselves felt.
The Girard-Perregaux Manufacture presents this seductive new version of its iconic Cat›s Eye collection, widely acclaimed for its magnificent aesthetic and mechanical features. At the heart of this watch with its dazzling mother-of-pearl dial decorated with delicate guilloché work, a Girard-Perregaux Manufacture movement poetically marks out each hour of day and night as a precious moment.
The beauty of this «Day & Night» model stylishly combines the curves of the Cat›s Eye case with beautifully keeping a steady rhythm for the constant ballet of the hours around the dial. Its emblematic oval case – the signature feature of the collection – is crafted out of pink gold, while its bezel sparkles with 62 brilliantcut diamonds. Its lugs, curved delicately inwards, harmoniously extend the proportions of the case, providing the wrist with a perfect fit to ensure maximum comfort for the wearer. Its crown, carefully chiseled into the form of a flower, emphasizes even further this model›s ultra-feminine elegance. Its guilloché mother-of-pearl dial is an open invitation to dream. Like the sun, its rays shine outward from the day and night indicator. So as to intensify the brilliance of the dial, the hours are indicated by teardrop-shaped hour markers set with diamonds. Time is measured out by delicate leaf-shaped hands for the hours and minutes, and by a baton-type hand for the seconds. 28
Their path is protected by a slightly domed sapphire crystal. To follow the constant dance of the hours through day and night, the Manufacture employs an intricately-crafted disc in 22-carat pink gold. The product of extraordinarily skilled craftsmanship, this disc features two alternating polished and satin-finished sections, giving extra volume and realism to the sun and the moon surrounded by stars. The mechanical, self-winding movement GP03300-0090, exclusive to this collection, is made up of 218 different components. its remarkable finishes and its gold oscillating weight, engraved with repeated images of the GP logo, may be admired through its sapphire crystal case-back. The Cat›s Eye Day & Night watch is available with a black or gray alligator leather strap with pink gold folding clasp, or with a pink gold bracelet.
The art of detail So as to ensure that the Traveller Large Date, Moon Phases & GMT offers the wearer maximum comfort, every last detail has been attended to, from the curve of its case band to the perfect alignment of its screwed-down crown. Thanks to its ideal dimensions, generous 44 mm diameter and a slim bezel combined with a deep flange, the case offers exceptional legibility. The date is handsomely displayed on the dial in an impressive aperture located at 12 o’clock. The information relating to the second time-zone are indicated in the counter situated between 4 and 5 o’clock, while the details concerning the moon phases are observed through the aperture opened into the permanent seconds counter. Since every detail counts in a model such as this, the precise pattern outlined on the dial, inspired by the Earth’s interlocking meridians and parallels, gives the model an outstanding feeling of volume. In addition to acting as a subliminal invitation to travel, these lines, merging into the dial’s narrow indexes, help to draw the eye to the aperture in which the moon appears. The precision of its displays and its ultra-detailed graphic treatment combine to make this watch truly unique. Its stylish design gives this understated and atypical watch an air of unmistakable strength, while seducing even the most rational among us through the poetic attraction of our planet’s natural satellite, the Moon. 29

Corum And Rebecca’s Time Admiral’s Cup AC-One 45 Squelette Mechanical Exploration With its new Admiral’s Cup AC-One 45 Squelette, Corum offers a full immersion into the heart of its intricate horological workings. The airy architecture of a finely open worked mechanism, together with the transparency of remarkably modern date disk and the lightness of the titanium clothing the case with its iconic lines, all contribute to earning this new model a place of its own within the world of Fine Watchmaking. Right from its launch in 1960, the Admiral’s Cup asserted itself as a frontrunner in the field of design with its powerful style emphatically defined by a twelve-sided bezel unlike any other. It was the kind of model destined to find its way through the decades with the tranquil assurance of those that have their finger firmly on the pulse of time and are able to anticipate trends. Ever since, it has consistently surprised observers by its ability to show up in consistently avantgarde compositions. The new Admiral’s Cup AC-One 45 Squelette is no exception. At the heart of its grade 5 titanium case beats a high-precision (28,800 vph) mechanism: automatic Caliber CO 9000. For the first time, this movement with its 42-hour power reserve appears in an entirely open worked architecture that draws all eyes to explore the heart of its intricate gear trains with their resolutely contemporary finish. Its power of attraction is further heightened by the absence of a dial, while a highly original transparent date disk bearing fully visible numerals lends an even more modern touch to the overall effect. While their base is applied on an anthracite-colored dial, the Superluminova-enhanced hour-markers are extended to the point where they appear to be levitating around the rim of the date disk. This play on contrasts and depth effects is accentuated by the galvanic-treated inner bezel ring, duly framed by the Admiral’s Cup iconic nautical pennants. The generously sized 45 mm grade 5 titanium case with its layered construction is topped by its famous twelve-sided bezel, while black PVD inlays are strategically placed between the various elements to create an even more powerful effect. While the titanium features alternating polished surfaces and satin-brushed side plates, the sapphire crystal bears the metalized Corum logo. The equally transparent caseback offers its own perspective on the CO 9000 movement, and particularly on the finely open worked, Corum-personalized oscillating weight. Alongside its remarkable style, the case also boasts impressive water resistance to 300 meters. An extremely elegant black crocodile strap fitted with a grade 5 titanium folding clasp sets the perfect finishing touch to this new Admiral’s Cup AC-One 45 Squelette. 32

Rebecca de Alba Foundation tries to improve quality of life of the population through the development of prevention campaigns and early detection, they inform and encourage changes in their habits of life. The Admiral’s Cup Legend 38 is dressed in a precious mother-of-pearl dial. It is adorned with nine hourmarkers se with diamonds totaling approximately 0.10 carats, along with the number 30 and 60 appearing as appliques at 6 and 12 o’clock respectively. This limited edition has mechanical movement with automatic winding-caliber C0082-equipped with a power reserve of 42 hours and offering the hours, minutes and date.

ADMIRALâ€™S CUP REINVENTED, BREAKING THE WAVES FOR MORE THAN 50 YEARS
Bulgari Watches & Jewelry available at: BTC Duty Free Cairo International Airport Terminal 3 - Travel Hall
Announces Two Spectacular New References as Fitting Additions to The HMS1 Line The Royal Collection from Arnold & Son consciously references the magnificent timepieces made by John Arnold in his fledgling years as a watchmaker for King George III and members of the monarch’s court. The timepieces were distinguished by their elaborate decoration, intricate workmanship and ingenious mechanical sophistication. To complement the collection, Arnold & Son is proud to unveil two beautiful new models that sit firmly within the inimitable English watchmaking tradition. Both of the new timepieces feature gorgeous, silvery-white guilloché dials in two distinct patterns. These combine with the indices, starkly three-dimensional hands, and recessed subdial to create a spectacular illusion of depth that is in sharp contrast to the ultra-slim case. Housed inside the case is an in-house A&S1001 nickel silver movement, just 2.7 mm in height and decorated with Côtes de Genève rayonnantes – a particularly apt choice of ornamentation because the iridescent reflections mirror those of the dial. The rhodium treated calibre is meticulously fashioned, featuring Haute Horlogerie finishing and manually chamfered bridges with polished edges as well as blued screws and fine circular graining. Secured by a brown or black alligator strap, the two new HMS1 references are available in 18-carat rose gold and 18-carat white gold, and are also available with a diamond-set bezel. All timepieces in the HMS1 line feature a classically styled 40 mm case in white gold, rose gold or stainless steel, with a seethrough back cover and water-resistance to 30 metres. The hand-wound movements have double barrels that generate a power reserve of over 90 hours with more constant force and hence greater accuracy throughout the watch’s run time. The line is available in a range of dial colours and with various finishes, depending on the model.

Grande Seconde Quantième Ivory Enamel Time In Evolution Jaquet Droz has written a new chapter in the story of the Grande Seconde by incorporating a silicon balance spring in the escapement of its movement and rethinking its aesthetic aspect. The Grande Seconde Quantième, launched in 2011 and inspired by one of the brand›s legendary models, reveals a new face and movement this year, reenergizing the conventions upheld by Jaquet Droz and reaffirming its excellence as a watchmaker.
For the first time, major changes have been made to the movement with the addition of a silicon balance spring and inversed horns on the pallets fork. Silicon is a highly flexible material that only a small number of watchmaking brands have mastered how to use. It can withstand shock and variations in temperature and pressure, and its properties allow it to remain unaffected by magnetic fields, maintaining perfect stability over time. As with all its movements, Jaquet Droz plays with a range of fine finishing techniques: the plates are circular-grained above and below, the wheels are chamfered, shaped and circulargrained, the steel parts are chamfered and softened, and there are patterns of straight lines and hand-polished angles. All these features compose a unique aesthetic signature, visible through the watch›s transparent case-back. For the launch of the new Grande Seconde Quantième Ivory Enamel, the movement is further embellished with fanned Côtes de Genève decoration, which reinforces the brand›s identity. Such modernity, however, is executed with state of the art perfection. The enlarged bridges 40
and the finishes that bring together tones of gray and black give this model a more contemporary feel, all the while integrating perfectly with the brand›s decorative signature. In tandem with these significant changes, the Grande Seconde Quantième Ivory Enamel›s dial, available in two versions - red or white gold with a diameter of 39 or 43 millimeters - has also undergone an aesthetic evolution. It has been double enameled using the historic Grand Feu enamel technique, peculiar to Jaquet Droz. This gives a lower subdial of increased depth that accentuates the beautiful balance between the two subdials as they describe a figure eight, the brand›s lucky number. By focusing on changes of a technical and aesthetic nature, Jaquet Droz has again expressed its watchmaking philosophy - the prioritizing of evolution over revolution, while in no way compromising its values of high standards and excellence in terms of both mechanics and ornament. 41
In 1784, the groundbreaking Pierre Jaquet Droz established Geneva’s ﬁrst ever watchmaking factory.

Tissot Chemin des Tourelles Skeleton
No place like home The Tissot Chemin des Tourelles Skeleton takes its name from the place in which it was created. Chemin des Tourelles is the street on which the Tissot factory was built in 1907 and where the company still remains today. This watch takes pride in its origins and reflects more than 160 years ofexpertise. The art of watchmaking is clearly visible through its dial thanks to its skeletonised movement.
Heritage The beauty lies in the revelation of its works, with furtherrich details demonstrating itslegacy. The simple and fine hands may seem like a modern touch at first, when in fact, the blue tint, also seen on the Arabic indices, is a result of an ancient method used to protect steel from corrosion. This shows a certain tradition, while at the same time, adding eye catching details to the piece. Remaining on the vintage side, the counter at nine o’clockbrings an original feature to the Tissot Chemin des Tourelles Skeleton. Tissot will be sure to please watch enthusiasts with this piece.

Says Goodbye To Summer Flings And Makes Way For Cool-Weather Trends! Sun-dripped adventures that speckle the summer months fade away as Swatch celebrates the FallWinter Collection – an assortment of models that remind us to let color rule our world all year round. Glitzy styles flirt with starlight and daredevil patterns stand out from the norm in this brand new collection. A World In Colors kicks it off with funky color blocks and vibrant hues that play with shapes. The Classic theme is next to strut its stuff with dapper designs and a dash of retro. Winter takes over when sparkles come out to play with Let it Shine, born to be the center of attention with head-turning metallic glam. High-Lands Mix shouts from the top of its plaid-striped lungs that wild designs never go out of fashion.
With the suave characteristics of a rugged gentleman from a previous era, these Classic models let you get in touch with your inner grown-up – the one with the classic sense of style and attractive confidence. Prepared for an adventure any time of day, BRUSHED EARTH (YCS4053), SPECIAL UNIT (YWB402) and THE CAPT (YGM7000) stand out with their smooth, dark and vintage attributes and aim to please with their high-flying take on adulthood without losing sight of any bit of youthfulness. BACK TO THE ROOTS (YVS414), a chronograph with a robust side, has a sporty personality that’s highlighted with a dash of elegance. A retro look with polished flair is just what you need to succeed.
WINTER COLLECTION LET IT SHINE: Glitz, glam and pizzazz are center-stage as dazzling designs beckon for a second glance. These models light up the city with an element of brilliance that’s fit for a queen. LIGHTS ON (SFM128), a disco ball diva of the most elegant nature, combines impeccable style with a vivid sparkle ready for a night out on the town. HIGH-LANDS MIX: Patterns take their inspiration from the allure of optical illusions. High-Lands Mix takes a stand against the ordinary and proves that a walk on the wild side needs a good accessory. Cozy patterns give cool a new name with headturning style that boldly proclaims winter has arrived. SUMMER SOCKS (SUON110) and COLOR-KILT (SUON109) look warm to the touch and heat up the scene with a realistic printed pattern. MCPATTERN (SUOB114), a palette of plaid, is anything but uniform and stands out with its Scottish roots. Strap it on your wrist and you can almost hear the bagpipes (you can decide for yourself if you want to try the haggis)… RUBY SILVER (LK342), set with appealing printed precious gems, makes it possible to look like royalty but party at the pub. This lively piece was designed for those of us who’d rather enjoy the downtown scene of our favorite city than the stuffy old throne room of a castle. And whoever said diamonds are a girl’s best friend obviously meant rubies…
FALL COLLECTION: A WORLD IN COLORS Inspired by a rainbow’s extended playlist of light and color, these playful wristwatches are soaked in vibrancy and are known to work hard but play harder. Tangy is the name of the game for sweet-and-sour models COLOR MY LACQUERED (SUOS101), DIP IN COLOR (SUOP103) and COLOR PALETTE (SUOJ101). Nostalgic for summer but looking forward to cooler days, these watches say that flamboyant fun will own the season. Geometric beats on daring dials have their own personality with swish straps that are ready to surprise with a delightful and oh-so-welcome pairing of hues. Fragmented light – composed and decomposed – is interpreted through a kaleidoscope point of view. COLOR EXPLOSION (SUOV101), CHROMOGRAPH (SUSW404) and CHROMATIC WATER (SUUB401) are abstract, bold and trendy with a sense of sophistication. 52
Fancy with just the right amount of fun, ROSE EXPLOSION (SUOW110) knows how to enhance any outfit with a bang. While this one isn’t known for its smell, it sure does look sweeter than a watch by any other name. Never-ending flower power adorns your wrist with ROMANTIC BUZZ (SUBB126A/B), alive with eye-catching style and bursts of color. Springtime spirit is bound to bloom from the floral design and polka-dot print even on the coldest winter day.
FESTIVE PEEP SHOW
Swatch presents the perfect holiday season gift for those that can’t resist a peek inside the parcel So now it’s time to unpack childhood confessions – the pulling back of giftwrap trying desperately not to tear it, or secretly hoping aunty chose the bargain paper with its appealing see-through quality. The Swatch Seasons Special, HOLIDAY TWIST (SUOZ709S), is an open invitation to countdown to the celebrations without any fear of the loaded seasonal accusation, “If you are not good….” Each one of the 14,999 pieces making up this numbered and limited edition reveals a secret symbol or color of holiday fun every day, through an Xmas tree shaped window on the dial. Peeking looks to be trending this season.
Swatch Prepares To Wear The Summer With Hot Styles Inspired By Beachside Lifestyles Longer days mean it’s time to take off and play, and Swatch knows just the trick with a brand new SpringSummer Collection 2015 – a bevy of eye-catching watches that scream for ice cream, sailboats and sun-soaked days at the beach. The season starts off with a delicate and feminine Spring Breeze that brushes against the skin with a pastel touch. Gran Turismo revs its engine and shows off the bolder side of the season with dark and daring looks. My Pet & Me captures the sweetness of our animals in a stylish way while Red White & Blue salutes our seas and the sporty sailors who conquer them. Rainy days can come and go but there’s no stopping fun In The Playroom where memories are made and nostalgia is the real name of the game. Surfing The Wave is all about the California lifestyle and long days spent in saltwater, and Mediterranean Dolce Vita celebrates life, sustenance and fine dining in another salty section of our Earth.
The Spring-Summer Collection 2015 is on deck HOLIDAY TWIST is geared up for party-time, glamorously mirroring the fashion world’s current claim that gold is the new black. The dial is a glittery golden snowball, while the strap hosts more traditional small white snowballs falling against a romantic sparkly sky. Do you want to build a snowman? There is even a reminder to do just that as one of the symbols looking periodically through the Xmas tree window is one of these charming chaps - all dressed in pink to add his own twist. As he melts away after his 24-hour appearance, stars, bells, parcels and other iconic images of the season are waiting in the wings to do their spontaneous shifts in the spotlight. Maybe these symbols will even double as conversation ice-breakers on and around the dance-floor?
SPRING BREEZE A little luxury and a dash of dazzle, Spring Breeze is as lavish as it is delicate and it’s simply oh-so-classy. ANISETTE (LL116A/B) and BLUE POSH (SUBK157A/B) take the shape of spring with circles and squares that give texture to a breath of fresh air. Glammed-up but down-to-earth, TRI-LOOPER (YLS1033) and DOUBLE ME (YSG139) are in touch with their feminine sides, skinny dipping with barely there leather straps.
Confirming that a sneaky look inside is no longer a no-no, HOLIDAY TWIST comes in a special packaging scattered with cut-out Xmas trees to reveal a rich red, green and gold landscape beneath. Extra potential for being good is provided by a golden, three-dimensional Xmas tree on the box lid, which can be used to decorate the top of the real thing. What better example of “upcycling”? Probably trending just behind “peeking” according to the Swatch festive forecasts.
So how many sleeps are left until the big day? That depends where on the planet you are celebrating, but if in doubt, ask a passing pink snowman!
Grab the keys! Come on, let’s ride with Gran Turismo – a lean, mean, stylish suave machine. With hard-to-miss dials, GOLDEN FRIEND (SUOB716) and SILVER FRIEND (SUOB717) are all about a classic look with a metallic twist. These stylish pieces don’t need a stoplight to tell them when it’s time to go. Shifted into gear and ready to burn rubber, BLAKE BRAKE (SUOB117) and RED BRAKE (SUOR104) have a need for speed and aren’t shy about showing it. DOPPIOGIRO (YWS409) is bold and brooding with a dark tan and handsome features that counter DESTINATION MADRID (YVS419G), a sleek alternative with powerful lines and a mighty engine that could, can and will – just take a look under the hood. 55

Rado DiaMaster RHW1 Limited Edition
The Rado Esenza Ceramic Touch Fibonacci Diamonds Limited Edition Touching perfection
Modern materials and a masterful movement for ultimate lightness The ability to reinvent, constant innovation and pushing the boundaries to effect real change. If this is Rado, then the Rado DiaMaster RHW1 Limited Edition is the epitome of the brand. The show-stopping stand out piece in a collection of pareddown design watches, the Rado DiaMaster RHW1 mixes the Rado business of high-tech materials with the pleasure of adding something new in the world of watchmaking - this time an unusual movement for a high-tech ceramic watch. The case material was chosen for being twice as light as standard ceramic. Si3N4 TiN is a form of high-tech ceramic composite that Rado has researched and developed in its latest quest for innovation. Made by heating the mixed powders at 1800°C in an over pressure atmosphere of nitrogen, it is known for its superior wear resistance. The ‘old bronze’ colour gives the watch case a rugged, lived-in appearance. This is a watch that seems to have a story or two to tell about where it has been. The choice
of leather for the strap adds to the windswept and mysterious appeal of this undeniably cool and manly timepiece. Hard as nails, light as a feather, the materials may give this DiaMaster its look, but it is the movement that gives the watch its soul. Rado innovations are usually seen in the materials used for the outside of our watches – this DiaMaster also has a Rado innovation on the inside. Lightness and comfort are two qualities that are always taken into consideration at the design stage of a new Rado watch. As the Si3N4 TiN that is used for the RHW1 is half the weight of high-tech ceramic Rado usually uses, it was important to develop a movement that was equally light, but that suited the personality of the watch. The first stage was to remove the oscillating weight, so this had to be a hand-winding mechanical watch. Next the plates and the bridge, which are traditionally made in brass were replaced by lightweight aluminium. Aluminium is known for its low density and, therefore, for its lightness as well as its durability. In order to make the aluminium parts even more durable, they have been anodised to increase their hardness. Anodisation changes the structure of the metal near the surface of the aluminium and also makes it easier to colour. In the case of the RHW1 the plates and bridge are black. Aluminium movements were used in pocket watches in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries because of their lightness. It was this past trend and focus on lightness that inspired Rado to use such a movement – the RHW1, which is exclusive to Rado – for the first time in an extremely light and high-tech wristwatch. As ever, the Rado designers have given this limited edition a modern twist to create a watch that oozes 21st century style. Rado: typically unconventional ideas lead to outstanding design.
At Baselworld 2013 Rado presented a world first in watchmaking with the Rado Esenza Ceramic Touch. Now the Esenza Ceramic Touch returns and it is more glamorous than ever before. The gleaming black high-tech ceramic case is a sleek and subtle background with its gently curved, sensuous oval shape. Smooth, strokable and scratch-resistant it is the perfect material to showcase the 534 individual diamonds that adorn the dial of this innovative model. The glittering gems, set in a Fibonacci spiral, call to mind the organic patterns seen in nature in flowers, and underline the kaleidoscopic beauty of this ladies model. This mesmerizing mathematical marvel also alludes to the technology behind this outstanding piece of functional jewellery. The technology behind the touch: Controlled by the gentle touch and sweep of a finger along the side of the case – left for hours and right for minutes – time can be made to fly by or can be turned back in a single stroke. The monobloc construction of the case, the production of which is carried out under high pressure using a sophisticated injection process, ensures the success of the ceramic touch technology. Limited to 300 individually numbered pieces, and using a perfect combination of ceramic and diamonds, the Rado Esenza Ceramic Touch Fibonacci Diamonds Limited Edition is yet another beautiful breakthrough from Rado. 61
Rado and Andy Murray 77 magic Rado minutes in the London Hour Passion store with Britain’s tennis superstar
Tennis superstar Andy Murray took 77 minutes out of his busy training schedule to meet fans at the Hour Passion store on Oxford Street in central London. As Andy’s official watch partner, Rado provided a specially branded cab to take Britain’s most famous sportsman from the famous Queen’s Club in West London to the Hour Passion store in the heart of the West End. Arriving on the green carpet, Andy was greeted by Rado CEO Matthias Breschan in the store, which had been decorated with eye-catching visuals of the Rado HyperChrome Court Collection – including the HyperChrome Court Chronograph with green details, which Andy wears. In a nod to Andy’s amazing achievement at Wimbledon last year, when he became the first British man for 77 years to win the singles title, he spent 77 minutes in store, meeting as many fans as he could and having pictures taken with them which could be instantly shared across social media. The 195 lucky fans also took away a printed memory of the event in an envelope branded with the event’s hashtag #greatshotandy. As they waited for their chance to meet Andy, fans feasted on strawberries and cream and were able to watch their sporting hero in action in the Rado ‘Your Life, Your Game’ television commercial which was shown on big screens in store. Speaking during the event, Rado CEO Matthias Breschan said: “We all know what a huge sporting star Andy is and we’re very proud to have been able to bring him to the Hour Passion store to meet some of his many fans. It’s great to see how much he means to people here . 62

Rado DiaMaster Ceramic Automatic Skeleton Limited Edition Make no bones about it: this is a new Rado special
A skeleton in the collection is normally something you’d want to hide, but the Rado DiaMaster Skeleton Limited Edition is far too exciting to be locked away out of sight. Brand new for 2014 Rado has produced three striking limited editions for the mechanical watch enthusiast who also needs the comfort and scratch-resistance of high-tech ceramic. Rado’s groundbreaking monobloc high-tech ceramic case features on all three models – each of which is limited to 499 individually numbered pieces. Polished black high-tech ceramic is a stylish Rado staple since we first started working with ceramic in 1986. Smooth, shiny and incorporating the minimalistic DiaMaster case, this is a masterclass in Rado style. The five link ceramic bracelet uses both shiny and matt links to add texture, depth and complexity to the equation. Plamsa has been one of Rado’s buzzwords for the DiaMaster collection and this breakthrough material features on 20 models in the whole DiaMaster collection including two of the new Skeletons. Each individual ceramic piece used to create the full plasma DiaMaster Skeleton – the monobloc case, the crown and each tiny bracelet link - starts life as white high-tech ceramic. The pieces are fully finished to be either matt or polished. The pieces are then placed in the plasma oven where they reach up to 900°C during the plasma process, and where the warm grey metallic colour emerges from the inside out. Technically complex in construction yet minimalistic in design, the plasma version with black leather strap adds an element of futuristic vintage to the collection. Whichever way you look at it the Rado DiaMaster Skeleton Limited Edition will show you what it’s made of, with sapphire crystal front and back giving a clear view of the movement that beats at the very heart of this watch. Make no bones about it; Rado has created a unique ceramic limited edition that is sure to make a big impression. And for those who like to have a story behind their watch, this latest Rado speaks volumes. 63

Styling choices enable the Hamilton Jazzmaster Auto Chrono to harmonize with the rhythms of diverse lifestyles. A new five-row stainless steel bracelet for instance merges seamlessly into the contemporary case. While rose gold-colored indexes bring warm tones to a version with a silver dial and crocodile-pattern brown leather strap.

“IT’S LIKE DRAWING IN THE SKY” Leading aerobatic pilot, Nicolas Ivanoff, appreciates the “creativity” involved in taking skill and technology to their limits
Nicolas Ivanoff’s aerobatic career seems ironic when he puts it into the context of his childhood ambitions: “As a kid I dreamt of getting into motor racing but my mother didn’t want me to because she thought it was too dangerous!” He discovered aerobatics almost by accident, after spending several years making a living as a private pilot. But then came the fateful day at the beginning of the 1990s when he flew a CAP 10 aerobatic plane for the first time. “It was a revelation”, recalls Ivanoff, who originally comes from Corsica. “I was angry at myself for not getting in to this the sport sooner”. Nicolas’s expertise can be found not only in the sky but also in the design and development of Hamilton timepieces, providing the brand with a great deal of insight on integrating real, relevant aviation functionality into the Khaki collection. He joined the design team to create pilot watches like the Khaki X-Wind that provides a drift angle calculator and the Khaki Pilot with its typical pilot look made of big dial and easy-to-read luminous numbers and indices. Or more recently the Takeoff, a pilot watch, which simultaneously acts as a wrist-, cockpit- and table watch. This dynamic timepiece is detachable and can be placed in the dashboard of a helicopter or airplane cockpit.
member of the French Aerobatics Team. Every year since then, he has consistently finished in the top 10 in various aerobatic competitions, be it European or World Championships. Considered as a French leading pilot, the Quick Corsican, as he’s called, joined the Hamilton team as the brand ambassador in 2005, since then he’s flying the world in his Hamilton branded aircraft. Performing every season at international official competitions, but also giving strong emotions to the audience of various Air Shows worldwide like Oshkosh, Wisconsin (US), Tannkosh, the Free Flight Shows in France and the Red Bull Air Races around the world. Smoke on: loops, snap rolls, verticals up, etc. turn himself upside down while leaving a white smoky mark in the sky and the public on the ground impressed and dreamy…
True to its cockpit instrument inspiration, the contemporary pilots’ watch has a bi-directional turning flange, driven by the bezel, which has the capacity to record a countdown. The Hamilton H-31 movement in the Khaki Takeoff Auto Chrono Limited Edition has 60 hours of power reserve for extended operation airborne or otherwise.
Nicolas Ivanoff’s Portrait Nicolas Ivanoffis a French pilot and instructor, born in Ajaccio (Corsica) on July 4th 1967. He started Aerobatics at the beginning of the 1990s and by 1997 he was already a 68

Pharrell Williams Receives The Raymond Weil International Artist Award
MAESTRO – RAYMOND WEIL LIMITED EDITION TRIBUTE TO A LIFE’S WORK Raymond Weil was a great man whose vision led to the creation of a Company which, over the course of almost four decades, has gained international renown – the Company remains to this day one of the last few independent family-run watchmakers – and is the legacy left by an exceptional man to his family. Elie Bernheim, grandson of the founder, today heads the RAYMOND WEIL family business, and with the maestro collection is offering a truly unique limited edition timepiece, paying fitting tribute to a life’s work. In April 2014, Elie Bernheim took over the reins from his father Olivier at the head of the RAYMOND WEIL family business. Here watch-making is more than a family affair, as it was at the end of the 70’s that the late Raymond Weil, eponymous founder of the watch Brand, had the audacity and courage required to launch his own business.
Pharrell Williams and Craig Leach, RAYMOND WEIL’s UK Brand Director
RAYMOND WEIL, luxury Swiss watchmaker presented international superstar Pharrell Williams with the RAYMOND WEIL International artist Award at the annual Nordoff Robbins O2 Silver Clef event, held at The Hilton Hotel, Park Lane. Pharrell was on-hand to receive in person the award from RAYMOND WEIL’s UK Brand Director Craig Leach at the starstudded event that was attended by some of the biggest names in the music business: Jimmy Page, Sir Tom Jones, Black Sabbath, Chas & Dave, Paloma Faith, Giorgio Morodor, Laura Mvula, Gaby Roslin and Gareth Malone. Having just reached Number One with his critically acclaimed new album, ‘G I R L’, Pharrell Williams has sold over 5 million copies of the single ‘Happy’ which was the first taken from the album; it also featured on the ‘Despicable Me’ soundtrack and was nominated for an Oscar this year. He has recently collaborated with Daft Punk on the massive Number one ‘Get Lucky’ and with Robin Thicke on the biggest selling single of 2013, ‘Blurred Lines’. The multi Grammy Award winner, with a career that has spanned over two decades, built global support throughout the nineties and naughties, producing chart toppers Britney Spears’ ‘I’m A Slave For You’ and Nelly’s ‘Hot In Here’. Pharrell then featured in Snoop Dogg’s ‘Drop It Like It’s Hot’ which was named Billboard’s ‘Song of the Decade’ in 2009 just a few of his vast collaborations and achievements. Elie Bernheim, CEO – RAYMOND WEIL says: “We are delighted to have presented Pharrell Williams with the RAYMOND WEIL 74
International Award this afternoon at the Nordoff Robbins O2 Silver Clef luncheon. Pharrell has had the most incredible year within the music industry with releases “Happy” and “Girl”, which have enjoyed huge success across the worldwide charts. His appearance and successes at The BRIT Awards and The Academy Awards mark a truly memorable year for him. We have had the privilege of awarding the industry’s most decorated artists over the past 11 years of working with Nordoff Robbins and are thrilled that Pharrell Williams is the latest recipient of the Nordoff Robbins O2 Silver Clef RAYMOND WEIL International Artist Award for 2014.” The O2 Silver Clef Awards have collaborated with artists from all areas of the music industry since 1976, to raise funds for Nordoff Robbins’ music therapy work. This year, the O2 Silver Clefs will continue to shine as the pinnacle event in the Nordoff Robbins fundraising calendar and a highlight of the year for the music industry, with some of the biggest names coming together for this special event.
It is this same independent and valiant spirit which drives Elie Bernheim today, both in terms of his way of understanding the market and his involvement in creating and designing the models which form the RAYMOND WEIL collections – continuing the tradition of high-quality, ever-reliable and sophisticated Swiss watch-making. A timepiece in tribute to a life’s work is the quiet testament the Company wished to pay its founder. A subtle reference to Raymond Weil’s favorite complication, an automatic winding mechanical heart, equipped with a 42-hour power reserve, sits inside this COSC-certified chronometer. Each timepiece is engraved with a unique number on its movement and comes with a certificate issued by the COSC official organization. The 45mm 18K rose gold case shelters a dial featuring Raymond Weil’s handwritten signature. The chronograph pushbuttons sit on both sides of the crown and allow for the chronometer to start, stop, restart and reset. It is an expertly conducted harmony of decoration which comes to life under the baton of the music-loving watchmaker, granting this timepiece all of its pedigree. The distinctive sign of high-quality watch movements, a “côtes de Genève” decoration embellishes the skeleton oscillating weight adorned with the RAYMOND WEIL monogram. Presented in a prestigious box made of olive tree wood and bearing Raymond Weil’s signature, the timepiece expresses all of its personality, flattered by an impressive showcase of craftsmanship. With this 100-piece numbered limited edition tribute timepiece, RAYMOND WEIL is not only highlighting its attachment to watchmaking values but above all to family values, which will continue through high-quality creations, flying the flag for renowned Swiss watch-making expertise.
Music charity Nordoff Robbins uses music to transform the lives of people of all ages all over the UK. Supported heavily by the music industry, where they are the charity of choice at the BRITs and the MITs, to date, the O2 Silver Clef Awards, now in its 39th year, has raised over £8 million for Nordoff Robbins since 1976. Previous reciprocates of the RAYMOND WEIL International Artist Award have included: Vampire Weekend, Michael Bublé, Swedish House Mafia, Kelis, Meatloaf, John Legend, Foo Fighters, Bob Geldof, Bon Jovi and Kylie Minogue to name a few. 75

Silver Hearts From Gucci Jewelry TIMEPIECES & JEWELRY PRESENTS NEW STYLES IN THE HORSEBIT WATCH COLLECTION For Valentine ’s Day, Gucci Timepieces & Jewelry is pleased to introduce two elegant red variants as part of the Horsebit watch collection. One features a charming small bangle while the larger version is worked into a bolder interpretation of the Horsebit icon.
Both styles incorporate the signature Gucci horsebit motif, which was first developed in the 1950’s by the House founder, Guccio Gucci. Taking his inspiration from the equestrian pastimes of Florentine high society, a unique and lasting design was born. Today, the horsebit is embodied in a series of accessories that show off the motif’s sensual forms. The small version displays a rounded bangle bracelet in polished stainless steel, embellished with Gucci’s iconic horsebit clasps. This emblem encircles the bezel and is integrated into the bracelet design, resulting in a graceful, jewelry-style timepiece. The femininity of this watch, which comes in a 28mm size, is 90
enhanced by a dark-red dial offset with a series of elegant Roman numerals at 12 and 6 o’clock. The Gucci logo at 3 o’clock adds a finishing touch. The bolder variant of the Horsebit timepiece is seen in a larger, round watch (34mm), which comes in the same darkred colorway, blending stainless steel with leather. The dial is encircled by the streamlined forms of the horsebit motif, also employed as a decorative accent on the clasp. A sun-brushed dial in a chic dark-red shade offers a creative mix of Roman numerals and plain indexes, together with the Gucci stamp at 3 o’clock. A dark-red calf leather strap completes the look.
The Trademark collection from Gucci Jewelry marries tradition and modernity by offering a contemporary interpretation of charm-based jewelry. The collection for Valentine’s Day, entirely in sterling silver, includes a matching bracelet and necklace adorned with delightful heart pendants. Each piece is engraved with the unmistakable ‘Gucci Made in Italy’ trademark, reflecting Gucci’s commitment to both beauty and quality. In addition, the necklace is adjustable to 50 or 55cm. The appeal of this range lies in its versatile aesthetic: Trademark can be worn in a different way, every day, making it a charming addition to any woman’s jewelry collection.

BOSS Watches Menswear Collection Fall / Winter DRIVER’S WRITS
It’s impossible to overstate the beauty of the joints - for example, the wrist, which is often decorated with a watch. The wrist above all represents mobility which, once mastered, embodies the essence of virility. Rather like a car, you might say. So imagine a wrist set off by a watch that reflects the design elements of a car… The epitome of virility, for once in a distinguished incarnation. This year, BOSS Watches has accomplished this feat, in the shape of a DRIVER with an even sportier character. The silver dial evokes the dials on the sports car and the holes in the strap bring to mind peccary gloves. Still waiting for inspiration? You have two options. Street hero, à la Ryan Gosling. No time or inclination to chat. It’s all about the emotion and the look in the eye. And a little help from the DRIVER, which helps establish your style. Gentleman - think Sean Connery at the wheel of his English classic. And if you don’t have the car, the DRIVER will give you the missing vintage touch… In either case, the new DRIVER from BOSS Watches will instil confidence and enhance the most virile of wrists with its incomparable style. 108
MOVADO GROUP MEETS HUGO BOSS The starting point for BOSS Watches was in 2004 with an encounter between two companies, German fashion and lifestyle Group, HUGO BOSS and the American MOVADO Group, specialized in the watch business. Already partner to some of the world’s greatest fashion brands, the MOVADO Group is world renowned for its watchmaking expertise. The HUGO BOSS Group is one of the world market leaders in the premium fashion and luxury segment of the apparel market. With its brand world, HUGO BOSS targets different, clearly differentiated consumer groups. The brands cover an extensive product range consisting of classic-modern business wear, elegant evening wear and sportswear, shoes and leather accessories, as well as licensed fragrances, eyewear, watches, children’s fashion and home textiles. The partnership between the MOVADO Group and the HUGO BOSS Group evolved naturally. Passion, creativity, and a concern for fine workmanship and quality are key values which HUGO BOSS shares with MOVADO. The brand’s respect for shapes and inherent elegance are vividly conveyed through the designs of understated, classic timepieces. In 2006, the first BOSS Watches collection hit the market. Featuring refined design that perfectly reflected the brand’s spirit, the collection of timepieces was an immediate success. Building on this success, the BOSS Orange Watches collection was launched in 2007. Sportswear-oriented, these timepieces have a more relaxed allure and feature the line’s iconic orange. This more youthful range appeals to a whole new audience and consolidates the cooperation between the two companies.

Scuderia Ferrari Latest Collection
The popular Pit Crew watch family captures all the thrills of race day with its case design inspired by the air intakes on a racing car, its rubber “tire”-capped crown and its chequered flag patterned stamp-textured dial with reflector ring, applied indexes and Racing Shield logo rendered in iconic Scuderia Ferrari colors. This season, Pit Crew adds exciting new 3-hand strap and bracelet models powered by precise quartz engines to its bright fan favorite offerings. Matching their red, black or white TR90/steel-core cases, the new bracelet models with deploymentclasps feature bold colored links made of silicone-wrapped TR90, a high tech thermoplastic composite prized for its light weight and rich color. One of the two new graphic black silicone strap styles features bold red, yellow or white stylized stripes suggested by an aerial view of the Abu-Dhabi Ferrari World theme park, with matching colored logo detail. The other new strap is branded by a colored Racing Shield logo on the upper half, mimicking the position of the shield on the sides of the racing cars, and a contrasting Scuderia Ferrari logo on the bottom half. All the straps feature a Racing Shield button/keeper and stainless steel classic tongue buckle with etched Racing Shield. Water resistant to 50 meters/5 ATM. 2-year limited international warranty.
Formula Italia Inspired by the interior materials and colors of revered 60’s Ferrari racing cars, the new Scuderia Ferrari Formula Italialimited edition collection of strap timepieces captures the simplicity and function of their time-honored Italian craftsmanship. Sporting a clean, classic feel, the slightly domed, easy-to-read dials with date display are detailed by a printed Racing Shield logo, minute track and Arabic numerals that replicate the font found on the dashboard gauges of the Testarossa. Chronograph subdials, one with a gradient red-orange-yellow accent, resemble that car’s rev and speed gauges. They are positioned at 3 and 9 o’clock, typical of chronographs from the era. Formula Italia reprises two other distinctive characteristics of 1960’s watch design. Rendered in brushed solid or black ion-plated stainless steel with a custom case-back design, the case –43 mm wide for the 3-hand, and 45 mm for the chronograph – has a classic tonneau-shaped silhouette with fluidly extended lugs, its contours inspired by the iconic 156 F1. Its bombémineral crystal, domed like the glass covering the car’s gauges, is designed to minimize light reflection for enhanced dial readability. The edges of the crown and round polished bezel and the roller on the strap buckle all sport a knurled texture reminiscent of the grips on an auto mechanic’s hand tools. Designed and made in Italy, the heritage-inspired Formula Italia watch collection comprises three chronographs and two 3-hand models powered by precise quartz engines. Presented in a special box, each of these elegant time-keepers is being issued in an exclusive limited edition for fall 2014. Water resistant to 50 meters/5 ATM.
A bold automotive influence drives the Lap Time family, designed for Ferrari’s dedicated race fans. Taking their inspiration from the air intakes on Scuderia Ferrari race cars, the matte finish cases with screw-in backs are constructed of stainless steel wrapped in TR90, a high-tech thermoplastic polymer. An integrated silicone strap secured by a Race Shield-shaped button/keeper and brushed metal tongue buckle with etched Racing Shield unites refined comfort with masculine detailing. This season, Lap Time adds striking new 3-hand models with 44 mm black TR90 cases topped by a round brushed solid, black ion-plated or rose gold ion-plated stainless steel bezel with a contrasting red Scuderia Ferrari logo. The matching metal crown is finished with a Prancing Horse logo. The intricate multi-level dials of these new models sport signature red brake caliper detail and a date display. Creating a truly signature look, the watch crystal with printed Racing Shield logo at its “hub” is protected by a metal grille with spokes inspired by the wheels of the FXX car, while the perforated textural detail on the all-black or black/ red silicone strap suggests the look and feel of a vented race car seat. The Lap Time line is equipped by a range of quartzpowered engines: a 3-hand with date, a fully functioning analog chronograph, and a high-performance ana/digi movement with analog hour, minute and central seconds hands plus a digital display for chronograph, alarm, day/date, and second time-zone functions. Water resistant to 50 meters/5 ATM. 2-year limited international warranty.

Balmain Maestria Lady Round: unanimously popular The Maestria Lady Round is unanimously praised by women, irrespective of age, social class, taste or character, since it appears to have universally appreciated qualities: modern while being traditional and refined, simple, but at the same time sophisticated, discreet, yet glittering, gentle and still full of energy. And that›s not all. Other strengths contribute to this acclaim: its round shape, its pure lines, the perfection of its finish and its pleasing detail. And also its versatility: thirteen models for a range that is guaranteed to bring luck. Whether its face is made up in black, white mother-of-pearl or silvered arabesque motifs, it retains the same sparkling smile . It remains equally appealing whether its body is covered in diamonds (66 on the case, 12 on the dial), steel, pink PVD or yellow PVD. Whether its arms are satin or steel, it embodies elegance in all its styles. As for its arabesque motifs, having danced in the centre of dials, flitted across cases and twisted across the straps of other Balmain creations, for the first time they make their appearance here at six o›clock. As if a stage had been deliberately prepared for them. All that remains is to applaud!
Balmain Maestria Round Automatic pair watches: an eternal declaration of love With these pair watches, the Balmain woman no longer has the prerogative on beautiful watches, meaning the Saint-Imier brand is contributing in a small way to restoring equality, as it already did with the Elysées Round Automatic collection, among others. And celebrating great love stories. Operating with an automatic ETA movement, the six Balmain Maestria Round Automatic pair watches offer extremely refined black or silvered dials, featuring a date window. They are available with a two-tone case and steel strap, or a black leather strap. These models do not feature arabesque motifs and their size is specially adapted to the Asian market (29mm for the ladies› version, 39mm for the men›s model). The Balmain Maestria Round Automatic family also has 13 additional members, specifically designed for women this time. All exude elegance and return to the arabesque motifs, the firm›s core identify, and are also available with a white mother-of-pearl dial, set off by 12 diamonds. An identical model for him and her… 120

Hiroshi Nakamura, Senior Executive Managing Officer and a member of the Board of Directors at Casio, had this to say: “Based on our popular and newly produced models, we have designed this lineup to capture the image of Infiniti Red Bull Racing. Among the new models, the EQB-500RB in particular makes it easy to set times to international time zones, so it is an excellent watch for people who travel around the world like the team members of Infiniti Red Bull Racing. Christian Horner, Team Principal, Infiniti Red Bull Racing, said: “We are delighted to partner with such a strong brand such as Casio. It was evident from day one that they shared our passion for precision engineering and like us, they are single minded in their pursuit for excellence. The new EQB range is another step forwards in this relationship. From a personal point of view, the use of digital technology presented in this range of watches is excellent; having a watch that synchronizes perfectly to the world time via a smart phone will be of great help for the members of the Infiniti Red Bull Racing Team as we travel around the world.” 130

Six confident colors make up the “LACOSTE.12.12” watch design palette - grey, red, blue, white, green and black.
