Celebrates 10 years as the Main Sponsor of the Venice International Film Festival

Rendez-Vous Celestial A sparkling finery exalting the beauty of the stars.

For the past 10 years, Jaeger-LeCoultre has displayed a passionate commitment to supporting and promoting filmmaking culture.

Gala Dinner

On September 7th, Jaeger-LeCoultre hosted a Gala Dinner to celebrate its 10-year partnership with the Festival in the heart of Lido island with over 200 international guests. CEO Daniel Riedo greeted the friends of the Maison: Festival Director Alberto Barbera, Carmen Chaplin, Catherine Deneuve, Terry Gilliam, Daniel Bruhl and Felicitas Rombold, Maribel Verdú, Cristiana Capotondi, singer Kit Chan, polo players Eduardo Novillo Astrada, Clare Milford Haven, and many others… The cocktail reception followed by the gala dinner took place in the enchanting setting of one Europe’s most elegant seaside locations, on a golden sanded beach. The atmosphere of the event set against the sea and the sky was inspired by the latest Jaeger-LeCoultre collection paying tribute to astronomy and reflecting the depth and beauty of Fine Watchmaking. The collection includes such highlights as the Duometre Spherotourbillon Moon equipped with a masterfully accurate mechanism designed to keep precision for a full 3,887 years and the Rendez-Vous Moon ladies watch that vividly reveals the creative freedom driving the Grande Maison through a beautifully staged moon-phase display. To make this evening an even more memorable one, JaegerLeCoultre arranged for the fireworks to illuminate the setting and create a spectacular performance in the sky above the beach of Lido. 10

The distinctive seductive power of the Rendez-Vous Celestial lies in its ability to embellish the woman who wears it. Enriched by the expertise cultivated by the Manufacture in the Vallée de Joux, the new Rendez-Vous Celestial by Jaeger-LeCoultre subtly distils its horological messages while also showcasing the beauty of a face exquisitely enhanced by Métiers Rares® (rare crafts). In tribute to astronomy, its flamboyant finery reflects the colors of the sun through the unusual choice of bordeaux aventurine. The sophisticated aesthetic of this radiant, fiery new creation exercises an irresistible magnetic attraction. As part of the tribute that Jaeger-LeCoultre is paying to astronomy, the palette of colors gracing its new creation naturally explores variations in blue – evoking an immediate connection with the celestial canopy. Yet the observation of the heavenly bodies, considered the most ancient of sciences, was long focused essentially on the sun. The luminosity of this star, with a history believed to date back more than 4 billion years, has regularly increased throughout its life. This incandescent giant inspired the Grande Maison to create a new Rendez-Vous Celestial clothed in a fiery mantle. The dial is adorned in bordeaux aventurine, whose deep tones dotted with glittering spangles set off a powerful sensual wave. Depending on how the light plays across the watch, the RendezVous Celestial fleetingly and alternately shimmers in vibrant red, mineral ochre and even orange shades. The ability of bordeaux adventurine to so convincingly embody the sun, source of light and life, stems from its nature as a symbol of energy and creativity. Thus associated with the emblematic Rendez-Vous aesthetic, it transforms the latter into a remarkable seductive asset, like a powerful talisman. 11

Marks Artemis Racing Partnership with Commemorative Marine Diver. The America’s Cup is the most important yachting competition of all time, and for the event’s 35th year, Ulysse Nardin sails into the sport as an official partner of Sweden’s Artemis Racing. To celebrate the landmark collaboration, the timepiece manufacture is launching an exclusive line of the iconic Marine Diver.

while honoring the occasion is the original pattern on the watch’s face; here, vessels seem to float on the sea as if awaiting their turn to set sail. Highlighting the partnership is the Artemis Racing insignia and “Challenger 35th America’s Cup Artemis Racing” tribute. These details, alongside the bold hour markers, hands and strap accented in yellow, with the Artemis Racing logo just below the dial, show a highly personal connection between the brand and the team. Reinforcing the nautical roots of each is the intricate wave pattern around the dial. Boasting exceptional water resistance to 300 meters, made possible thanks to the screw-locked crown and case-back, it also features a unidirectional rotating bezel, which prevents any accidental adjustment to the dive time. Forty-four millimeters in

diameter and powered by the UN-26 self-winding base caliber, the timepiece offers a power reserve indicator, small seconds register and a date display at 6 o’clock, among other precise functionality. Complex in its DNA, robust in its aesthetic, the Marine Diver Artemis Racing is the watch for the yachtsman in all of us. Whether we are avid participators in the sport or watch from the shoreline, Ulysse Nardin celebrates the sailor spirit by way of this partnership and its celebratory timepiece. The Marine Diver Artemis Racing is available through Ulysse Nardin’s worldwide retail network.

Gold highlights Marine Diver

Vivid in deep-ocean blue with bursts of signature Artemis Racing yellow, the limited edition of 250 timekeepers was revealed in Gothenburg, Sweden, host to the America’s Cup World Series. This preliminary competition, held on August 28-30, is a fitting atmosphere to reveal the new Marine Diver Artemis Racing watch. Since the beginning, only four countries have won the America’s Cup – the United States, Australia, New Zealand and Switzerland. Artemis Racing is striving to be the Cup’s new steward, bringing it to Europe and Sweden for the first time; and Ulysse Nardin is very proud to support this historical endeavor – and commemorate it with a collectible timepiece. 14

news

“Ulysse Nardin’s history of navigating the sea, paired with the DNA of innovation and technology, which is firmly established in both companies, makes this partnership a perfect match,” says Patrik Hoffmann, CEO of Ulysse Nardin. “When meeting the Artemis engineers, technicians, and craftsmen at their base in San Francisco, I quickly realized that the spirit of passion and innovation is the driving force behind this extraordinary team.” The energy and ingenuity of the Artemis Racing team is mirrored in this special execution of the Marine Diver, made for the milestone moment. Presenting a sleek yet durable mixture of textures, including stainless steel and rubber, the piece is ideal for yachtsmen who welcome the fiercest of competition. Reflecting love for the sport

Powered by the self-winding caliber UN-26 and with a power reserve of 42 hours, the Marine Diver 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. Available in 18 ct gold mounted on a rubber strap, the Marine Diver timepiece is both a highly reliable diving instrument and a fine sports watch that can be worn on every occasion. Everything about the Marine Diver 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 or black, is decorated with a wave-like motif. The same ornamentation can be seen on the bezel. The solid case-back reveals an engraving of a boat surrounded by the inscription: “Conquer the ocean.” This embellishes a new case designed for extreme conditions, extended by the lugs with their taut, sleek lines.

In terms of performance, this watch has all the attributes required of a diving watch. Boasting exceptional water resistance to 300 meters, made possible thanks to the screw-locked crown and case-back, it also features a unidirectional rotating bezel, which prevents any accidental adjustment to the dive time. For the same safety reasons, every aspect of the new Marine Diver has been designed to facilitate the reading of its precious indications: The impressive 44 mm face displays large hourmarkers and hands with a white luminescent coating and a red stripe, for perfect visibility. The small seconds at 6 o’clock are also oversized, offering a reassuring sign that the watch is functioning as it should, even in the water’s murky depths. Lastly, the claw-shaped rubber molding over the crown ensures it is easy to grip.

WHEN THE WORLD’S THINNEST MECHANICAL WATCH MERGES THE CALIBRE WITH ITSCASE

New Limelight Gala collection Radiates a Contemporary Aura

Neither entirely a movement nor exactly a case – or rather both at once: introducing the Altiplano 38 mm 900P, the world’s thinnest mechanical watch. Merging the hand-wound calibre with the case elements, it is designed as a single entity in order to achieve record-breaking slenderness at just 3.65 mm thin. Representing a crowning achievement in over half a century of virtuoso skills displayed in the realm of ultra-thin watchmaking where Piaget reigns supreme, it conveys the excellence of the two integrated Manufactures run by the Maison. Places where the skills of the watchmakers, case constructors and designers converge in giving life to this masterpiece of reliability and precision. 2014 is a vintage year for Piaget! The Maison is celebrating its 140th anniversary and marks the occasion by launching a model that is set to defy the conventions of ultra-thin Fine Watchmaking for many years to come: the Altiplano 38 mm 900P. While clearly geared towards cutting-edge innovation, it is also a nod to history, since it gets the 900P part of its name from Calibre 9P, which was the first ultra-thin hand-wound movement made by Piaget in 1957. That particular mechanism measured just 2 mm thin and sealed Piaget’s destiny in the field of ultra-thin horology. By 1960, Piaget was ready to set a first record with its Calibre 12P, the world’s thinnest automatic movement at just 2.3 mm. The following years witnessed a spate of new slimness records in the fields of hand-wound and automatic models, with or without horological complications – like Calibre 600P, the world’s thinnest hand-wound shaped tourbillon movement; and 1208P, an automatic movement that is also the thinnest in its category, to mention just a couple of these feats.

Piaget Altiplano Chronograph Double slimness record in major complication mode

The 1960s were known as a golden age pervaded by a resolutely fanciful spirit. As the leader of that legendary era, Piaget gave full play to its creative talent and adorned the elegant women of the time with dazzling jewellery watches. In 2013, the newly launched Piaget Limelight Gala collection draws a wealth of inspiration from this fascinating period and establishes itself as the new Piaget icon.

Entirely in tune with its incomparable aesthetic, sensual curves and precious gem-setting, it reveals a distinctive personality imbued with a sense of glamorous chic. At the crossroads of art, design and jewellery, Piaget once again brings the classical timepieces of the 1960s to life, interpreting the eternal glamour of the time. Meanwhile, Piaget has also found an ideal presenter for its excellent works –Brand AmbassadorGONG Li stands as the epitome of modern women who best showcases the ultimate femininity of the time. The picture epic of Limelight Gala collection featured byGONG Li reveals the utmost glamour and radiance of the perfect pair.

On the occasion of the 25th Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie, Piaget presents a new ultra-thin hand-wound chronograph in its iconic Altiplano collection. For the first time, this line with its pure, contemporary attributes is hosting a major horological complication. And since good things always come in pairs, the Piaget Altiplano Chronograph model sets a new record in the ultrathin field – a demanding art in which the Maison has consistently excelled since 1957. With its 4.65 mm movement and its 8.24 mm case, this newcomer to the Altiplano range will set a new crowning touch to the already impressive array of Piaget timepieces distinguished by legendary slenderness. A modern-day embodiment of sheer purity and elegance, the apparent simplicity of the Piaget Altiplano Chronograph expresses the timeless understatement of the Altiplano collection. For the very first time, this emblematic line from the Manufacture welcomes a major complication, a newcomer to the range of 37 Piaget in house movements and one that is cherished by all authentic Haute Horlogerie connoisseurs: the hand-wound chronograph. While this fine watchmaking classic is generally reserved for timepieces featuring traditional lines, the Manufacture Piaget has opted to house it in a case displaying a slender, understated and contemporary design. With its 25 ultra-thin movements holding 14 world records for their thinness, Piaget is a past master in the art of extreme thinness, as through this new 883P hand-wound chronograph calibre it once again demonstrates peerless expertise in the development of ultra-thin movements endowed with major complications. The calibre and case thereby set a new double slimness record, at just 4.65 mm for the hand-wound flyback chronograph movement, and a slender 8.24 mm for its precious receptacle. 17

Traveller Large Date, Moon Phases & GMT LARGE DATE AND MOON PHASES With its perfect balance of technical expertise and classical elegance, the Girard-Perregaux 1966 collection brings together all the qualities of a fine timepiece, the cornerstone of the Manufacture. The combination of finesse and superlative watchmaking is clearly seen in this new model that, for the first time, features both large date and moon phases functions.

This new creation fits perfectly into the Manufacture’s long tradition of expertise, paying tribute to the 1960s when the technical and timekeeping innovations developed by Girard-Perregaux were awarded the Neuchâtel Observatory Centenary Prize. The pioneering watchmaker was one of the first to have its own Research & Development department, and in 1966 it introduced the first high-frequency movement that gave its watches an exceptional level of precision. Today, the 1966 collection continues the legacy of integrating useful complications in classical watches known for their aesthetic simplicity and impeccable finish. The case, with a diameter of 41mm, incorporates a slightly domed crystal and a polished, diamond-effect bezel elegantly inclined as part of its refined design. For optimal comfort on the wrist, the horns are also curved, giving the case a pure flowing line. The 1966 collection is enhanced with a moon phases indicator that is particularly beautiful. Linked to the barrel, this function is a wonderful example of Girard-Perregaux expertise.

news

The curved dial is a marvel with applied baton-type markers and curved, polished leaf-shaped hands. This special design is both contemporary and classic - a distinguishing feature of the 1966 collection. The small seconds hand is centred on the moon phases indicator, in the purest watchmaking tradition. The sapphire caseback reveals the movement composed of 290 parts, including its oscillating weight decorated with Côtes de Genève. Sophisticated finishing is a specialty of Girard-Perregaux. This collection is available in white or pink gold, on an alligator leather strap that highlights its timeless character inspired by the Manufacture’s heritage that spans more than two centuries.

For the first time the emblematic Traveller Large Date, Moon Phases & GMT watch features a transparent dial. Available in either classy stainless steel or an elegant pink gold version, this new Traveller model displays both a strong character and high degree of sophistication. A watch of great technical efficiency, its case houses an automatic mechanical movement manufactured in-house by Girard-Perregaux and notably offering large date, second time zone, moon phase and small second functions.

This latest creation from Girard-Perregaux features three watch complications housed in a case with contemporary dimensions and a 44 mm diameter, and available in either stainless steel or pink gold.For the first time in the Traveller collection, the metallic gray sapphire dial subtly reveals its finest display at 12 o’clock, in the form of the large date mechanism. This mechanism is the subject of an exclusive Girard-Perregaux patent. It is a sophisticated device made up of two superimposed disks incorporated into the GP03300 automatic caliber. The juxtaposition of the disks, one of which has pieces made of transparent folanorm with a thickness of only 0.10 mm, ensures an aesthetically perfect display in which there is no visible separation between the two disks. The most outstanding of these complications, the moon phase indication, is both realistic and extremely poetic, and is perfectly represented by an impressive metallic treatment. A further subtle detail of this model is that the moon phase indication is directly attached to the barrel, thus allowing for a very high degree of accuracy. Adjusted by a corrector button situated at 8 o’clock, it is surrounded by a circular satin-brushed ring and features a small second hand at its center. The most observant may note that the Milky Way even mischievously conceals the brand’s logo with one of its stars! Available with an alligator skin strap, this new model is attached to the wrist by a folding clasp that is a perfect combination of elegance and sportiness. 21

Admiral’s Cup Legend 42 Flying Tourbillon Designed in the nineteenth century as a mechanism to improve timekeeping, the tourbillon is today the embodiment of Swiss micro-mechanical ingenuity, and arguably the most prestigious complication in watchmaking. But the tourbillon is so precious that it is a treasure only admired on occasion. Corum conceived the Admiral’s Cup Legend 42 Flying Tourbillon to turn conventional wisdom on its head. Finely crafted haute horlogerie, yet robust and practical, the Admiral’s Cup Legend 42 Flying Tourbillon was crafted as a masterpiece for the wrist. Put simply, it was designed to be strapped on and enjoyed – every single day. With a tourbillon carriage mounted on enlarged ceramic ball bearings for resilience, the movement has the bridge and base plate machined from brass. With the base plate and bridge terminating at four and eight o’clock on both sides of the movement, the tourbillon appears to be suspended in mid-air. But it is actually tethered to the movement by the two slender steel arms that are part of the bridge. From the rear, the view through the sapphire display back is equally panoramic. Instead of a conventional full rotor that would impede the view of the tourbillon, the caliber CO 016 is equipped with a micro-rotor decorated with the Corum logo in 18k red gold.

“The essential detail that embodies the history of the Admiral’s Cup is the chapter ring with its 12 nautical pennants.”

Admiral’s Cup AC-One 45 Bois Living alliance of finesse and sophistication Inspired by its nautical origins, the Admiral’s Cup collection welcomes a new model resolutely anchored in the contemporary era. Sailing onto the scene with an innovative case developed by Corum, this newcomer cut out for great achievements asserts an eminently virile style that makes it a must-have on the contemporary watch scene. Spotlight on the Admiral’s Cup AC-One 45 Bois, an accessible mechanical model combining power, elegance and performance. 24

A TIMELESS ICON Launched at the end of 1999, the B.zero1’s radical, industrial design fuses two hallmarks of the Bulgari iconography, the Tubogas motif and the distinctive BVLGARI logo. The BVLGARI logo instead harks to its debut in 1934 when the iconic font was introduced for the revamping of the flagship via Condotti store in Rome. For the occasion, the Bulgari family decided to adopt the ancient Roman epigraphy incorporating the Latin “V” instead of the Anglicised “U” - in one fell swoop, stretching the house name far back into Roman culture which is the rich, unending source of inspiration for so much of Bulgari’s creative DNA. A timeless icon, with the lyrical purity of its lines, the B.zero1 is also anunmistakable symbol of style and creativity. Its radical and industrial design, incontinuous evolution, makes it a true statement of a dynamic woman with a strong personality and always connected with contemporary times.

A SPARKLE OF DIAMONDS ENLIGHTENS THE NEW B.ZERO1 COLLECTION After the special tribute to the Eternal City with the B.zero1 ROMA, the iconic Bulgari collection is now being enriched with new playful and precious creations. Drawing its inspiration from the most renowned amphitheater of the world, the Colosseum, the purity of the iconic spiral, is a timeless metaphor for the harmony of past, present and future, reflected in the magnificence of the eternal city. Over the years, the B.zero1 has enjoyed many interpretations, playing with unexpected materials, colours and different forms of preciousness, always in line with Bulgari’s eclectic creativity. Exalted through the playful soul of the collection, the new B.zero1 masterfully fuses two of the line’s most successful hallmarks, the use of ceramic with the preciousness of the pavé diamonds. By combining ceramic, an innovative and unconventional material, with the unique preciousness of diamonds, Bulgari has created a perfect union between these two distinctive elements of the B.zero1 collection. The introduction of ceramic in the B.zero1 collection was conceived as a tribute to Bulgari’s famed Chandra collection initially launched in 1994. This innovative and provocative line of jewels was rendered in white porcelain moulded into variously shaped beads.Simplicity and refinement characterize the new rings, offered in black or white ceramic, enhanced with pavé diamonds on the edges highlighting the stylish motif of the circular double logo. The new glittering pendants in pink gold, available both in white and black ceramic with pavé diamonds on the edges, draw their inspiration from the freshly designed rings. The spiral motif is fur ther expressed through new soft bracelets - in pink or white gold with pavé diamonds nestled in the spiral shape, or in the plain pink gold version - that can also be worn coupled with the rings. 26

TAKES INSPIRATION FROM INTERNATIONAL HOTSPOTS FOR OUT-OF-THIS-WORLD COLLECTION Swatch took some time to study abroad, but this too-cool-for-school brand majored in culture, art, fashion and fun and skipped the lecture halls. The street-beat styles of the Fall-Winter Collection 2015 are loud and exotic, each moving to the tick of its own movement; these bright and bouncy timekeepers make a statement about the beautiful things that can be created when the cultures of the world are combined! Modern with a clean-cut fashion sense, sleek Tech-Mode is creatively machined and is a tad more serious with stealth style and contemporary panache. If Tech-Mode is understated then Sport Mixer is quite the opposite, grabbing attention left and right with go-getter color blocks that steal the limelight. Playful patterns and lively mojo make Exotic Charm something worth meditating about. Bold Street Energy lets your wrist do the talking with not-so-secret messages that are exceptionally expressive. Après-Ski is preppy and posh on and off the slopes and its winter-themed glam is the stuff of holiday dreams. Grüezi All! Lets you Swiss your wrist and proves that life’s greatest pleasures start with CH – chocolate, cheese and chalets.

Fall Collection SPORT MIXER Statement-making Sport Mixer wants to be seen and its abstract and eccentric pairings place it smack dab in the centre of attention and on the top of the podium.

GRÜEZI ALL! One look at the Grüezi All! collection and you’ll have to stop yourself from yodeling out loud! Swatch pays a tribute to its homeland with a selection of super Swiss styles that reflect the heritage of the small-but-mighty country. Take a dip in MOITIÉ-MOITIÉ (SUOW118), a fun take on cheese fondue – the famous Swiss dish. Break me off a piece of that SCHOGGI (GC114) Swatch! Highlighting one of the country’s most delicious sweet treats, this deliciously good-looking wristwatch is the ultimate souvenir. Reminiscent of a ski-weekend in the Alps, GORNERGRAT (GM183) is cozy with a knit sweater and cap. DIE GLOCKE (GB285) and MUUU (YCS585) tell the story of Switzerland’s countryside, where cows roam the pastures and offer moos to happy hikers passing by.

TECH-MODE Giving a whole new meaning to “factory setting”, Tech-Mode is clean and classy with textured looks that play with light and produce smiles. Masculine TEXT-URE (SUOM102) and BUCHETTI (SUON113) stray from the norm with looks that demand a double take. Dizzying in dramatic orange, MULTI BROSS (SUOO702) has a sleek and shiny dial with a polished personality. 38

SWATCH SEES STARS AND LIGHTS UP FOR

Holiday Season

EXOTIC CHARM Vivacious and centered, harmonious Exotic Charm is feminine and just in time for a relaxing savasana surrounded by sunrays. BLUE POETRY (GW171) exudes beauty with a serene white and blue bohemian design. BREATHE (GW172) keeps your chakras in line and is a divine complement to a true yogi’s glow. Radiating positive energy with vibrant colors, SHANTARAM (SFV109) has a passion for life and a desire to dance. Malachite is known as a “mirror of the soul” and supposedly has the ability to reflect a person’s inner positive and negative feelings. Strapped to your wrist, MARMORA VERDE (SUOB122) will highlight your happiness, and your impeccable fashion sense. Swatch’s take on the gemstone is bound to make those around you green with envy. MARMOR (SUOB123) inspired by that cracked look and smooth feel of marble is just as classy as it is hardcore. 40

You can feel the sparkle and excitement in the air: with the holiday season coming up soon, Swatch has dreamed up a magical Season’s Special. Inspired by visions of sugar-plums dancing, reindeer flying through starry skies and city streets lit up by night, Switzerland’s sparkling watchmakers have created a luminous celebration. LUCINFESTA’s dial is a smooth golden mirror, its surface filled with reflections from stars printed on the glass above. Blue and gold frame the golden dial and lead the eye to the strap, where colors explode like astonishing fireworks against a midnight blue sky. It’s clearly time for a holiday, and Swatch has made a party for the eyes. LUCINFESTA comes in Special Packaging that takes the festival of lights into another dimension – lenticular surfaces produce a 3D effect that enhances the splendor of the season. The shining golden surface of the dial appears again on packaging lined with the ornamental, multi-colored designs that grace the bracelet. This year’s Season’s Special is available in a limited edition of 8,888 pieces. 41


Swatch Gears Up For A Summer Romance That May Turn Into Something More Summer is full of moments that cry out for more – more days at the beach, more hours of sunshine, more time to dream. The Swatch Spring-Summer Collection 2016 is on exactly the right wavelength. Es War Einmal turns favorite storybooks topsy-turvy to prove that fact is often far funnier than fiction. Floralia is saying it with flowers in a bunch of different ways, from herbarium-style Latin to charming superstition that brings wearers 24/7 luck. The inspiration spectrum for Africana stretches from the Sahara to mascara, while Power Tracking revs up to cruise by in the style fast lane. Tropical is topical in Beach Swing, reliably forecasting that happy hours will last much longer than 60 minutes in the summer of 2016. And the ultimate tool of cool this season? That has to be Metallix, offering time for reflection inside and out.

With the Spring-Summer Collection 2016 you’ll always want more!

ES WAR EINMAL Once upon a time, life was a fairytale. Then Swatch created Es War Einmal to show just how much fun reality can be when you take a cheeky peek behind the scenes. You don’t have to have a blue and white dress or an invitation to a mad tea party to network with the Queen of Hearts, the Tweedles or a Cheshire cat. WONDERQUEEN (GR165), DOUBLE ME (SUOB129) and CAT ME UP (SUOW125) bring the quirky magic of Wonderland to the wrist, without any risk of injury from falling down rabbit holes.

FLORALIA Seize the daisies as Floralia sows the seeds for beautiful botany and lasting luck. FLOWERFOOL (SUOW126) transforms Asian fusion into a magical floral kingdom where color rules, while FIORINELLA (SUOW127) is a romantic invitation to take time to smell the roses.

AFRICANA From artisanal to zany, Africana finds inspiration in the countless folds and faces of the vibrant culture of Africa. Patterns, prints and patinas shaped the creative palette, hotting up urban cool and giving tradition wings. AFRICAMINO (SUOW120) and BEHIND THE WALL (GS146) melt geometry with wild color combinations to make their mark. LOSANGELOR (SFE103) uses the power of pattern to fuel a contemporary style statement with glam overtones.

METALLIX Designers put the pedal to the metal with Metallix to show that things are rarely what they seem. Especially when light starts flirting outrageously with metallic surfaces.

B e the master of your time

Time is precious, something we often feel is in short supply. With the new Rado DiaMaster Grande Seconde on your wrist, however, you can be sure that every second counts and you won’t miss a beat.

Modern Alchemy A brilliant warm metallic shine emerges from white ceramic when treated in a plasma oven where gasses activate at 20,000ÂşC. This magical transformation is achieved thanks to a patented process pioneered by Rado.

The striking look of a separate seconds dial, marked at intervals of 5 in Arabic numerals, while the minutes and hours are marked with slight yet striking indexes, reminds the wearer that time is of the essence. Beautiful to behold, the new Rado DiaMaster Grande Seconde collection is made of four eyecatching models, two in plasma high-tech ceramic with brown leather straps that exude a vintage look, whereas the two black versions have an edgy futuristic feel to them. This collection focuses on leather straps with only one model featuring the famous DiaMaster five link bracelet. With its edgy yet retro design the Rado DiaMaster Grande Seconde is perfectly paired with a business suit or dressed down with casual weekend wear. The unconventional dial makes this timepiece, as well as the man wearing it, stand out. A watch to be worn with confidence, this is the ideal model for the man who dares to be different.

THE g-timeless collection presents two new TIMEPIECES & jEWELRY INTRODUCES NEW GUCCI HANDMASTER

automatic variants

When first released in 2014, the Gucci Handmaster collection embodied a new breed of luxury watches for Gucci Timepieces, showcasing the very best of its watchmaking artistry. Blending graceful aesthetics with refined materials and quality movements, Gucci Timepieces & Jewelry is delighted to extend this premium range with two new models that introduce a classic, rounded design.

diamond variants

Representing a refined and contemporary mood, the G-Timeless collection from Gucci Timepieces & Jewelry is one of the House’s flagship lines. The range, featuring elegant lines and variety of models and functionalities, is now enhanced with, two precious diamond variants.

The models, released in medium (38mm) and small (27mm) versions immediately echo style and sophistication with the use of precious materials. On each timepiece, a classic rounded case and minimalist numerals let the mother of pearl dial take centre stage, which is offset by a bezel of fine white diamonds. The medium timepiece shows 50 diamonds, and the smaller model is enhanced with 36 sparkling gems. To underscore this refined aesthetic, the bracelets are kept chic and introduce a contemporary touch: they sport the most recent style of G-Timeless stainless steel bracelet with a three-link design in a brushed-and-polished finish. House details are seen in the ‘G’ symbolon the crown, and the ‘Gucci’ logo displayed at 12 o’clock, together with a date indicator and ‘Swiss Made’ mention at 6 o’clock. With their precious materials and understated allure, these two new additions represent the expression of modern elegance.

GUCCI JEWELRY INTRODUCES NEW MARINA CHAIN EXTENSIONS For summer, Gucci Jewelry is pleased to introduce a selection of new items to the Marina Chain fine jewelry range. The collection is now extended with a pair of high-end gold necklaces and bracelets, embellished with diamonds.

With their handsome allure, range of functionalities and automatic movements, the new variants continue to uphold the Gucci Handmaster hallmarks of elegance and craftsmanship. The House’s quintessential Italian styling is seen in a wealth of smart details that include sophisticated crocodile leather straps and elegant Gucci accents on the clasp and dial. These two new models, both in a 40mm size, come in a choice of two different materials and movements: a stainless steel and black version, or a precious variant in pink gold and grey. The stainless steel model is equipped with a GP3300 automatic movement by Sowind Manufactures. This movement drives the power reserve indicator, and the watch also shows a date display and small seconds counter. The stylish 18kt pink gold variant features a GP2700 automatic movement, also by Sowind Manufactures, with three hands and date display at 6 o’clock. On each piece, these inner mechanics are visible through the 74

transparent glass case back, a window onto the oscillating weight, which is personalized with Gucci’s iconic diamante pattern. The appeal of the new Gucci Handmaster Automatic timepieces lies in their visually pleasing style: the rounded cases are echoed by Roman numerals laid out in a circular sundial display. Each sun-brushed dial, in black or grey, is enhanced with the Gucci diamante pattern at its centre, offset with silver tone numerals and indexes. Each watch, available with either a black or grey crocodile leather strap, features the ‘Gucci Automatic’ logo at 12 o’clock and ‘Swiss Made’ seal at 6 o’clock. Each Gucci Handmaster Automatic watch is part of a limited edition, one of 99 models that comes individually numbered. These unique pieces represent an ideal way to mark the year’s achievements, or to welcome in a New Year with a statement of handcrafted style.

The Marina Chain, which the House introduced in the 1950s, is part of Gucci’s signature motifs, and reflects Gucci’s love of sophisticated past-times. The chain is a nod to the yachting world, creatively inspired by nautical emblems such as anchors and boating knots. Today, the motif is worked into desirable jewelry pieces, some of which take on a new interpretation of the Marina Chain, whilst still remaining highly recognizable. Still others within these new extensions incorporate other well-known Gucci motifs, such as a horse bit clasp. The latest Marina Chain necklaces come in different styles: generously rounded or as a finer version hung with an elegant Marina Chain pendant. These can be teamed with matching chain bracelets, in beautiful warm 18kt yellow or pink gold. Long earrings will add a chic touch, whilst smaller earrings see the Marina Chain motif worked into a sensual new form. The highlights within the collection are the high-end necklaces and matching bracelets worked in 18kt pink or white gold. The luxurious and exclusive designs feature a larger Marina Chain element that sparkles with over a carat of precious white or champagne pavé diamonds. The new pieces are an expression of Gucci Jewelry’s Italian craftsmanship, and will make a timeless addition to any woman’s elegant jewelry collection. 75

Unveils Holiday Watch Trends Michael Kors is pleased to present the Holiday Watch Collection, which includes a new assortment of watches for women and men designed with both celebration and gift-giving in mind.

JET SET TIME/ JET SET MATERIALS: Inspired by his love for travel, Michael Kors utilizes carbon fiber this season on two of his iconic men’s watches: the JetMaster and the Dylan. Carbon fiber is an extremely lightweight, strong material used in the manufacture of airplanes, helicopters and boats. Whether featured as a top-ring accent or wrapped around the watch’s bracelet, carbon fiber lends these men’s styles a jet set sensibility that’s unparalleled and makes them the perfect gift.

“A watch is one of the few accessories that can be at once sporty, glamorous and utilitarian,” says Michael Kors. “That’s one of the reasons it’s such a great gift.” The collection hones in on five trends that will keep you covered from cocktail parties to gifting.

METALLIC LEATHERS: Continuing the exciting leather story Michael Kors brought to life, the Sawyer is updated in silver and gold-embossed leathers and features a party-ready dial with dozens of sparkling stones. The metallic leathers provide a glamorous versatility that enables you to dress the watch up or down for whatever the occasion calls for.

ALL THAT GLITTERS/ SHIMMER & GLIMMER/ GLAMOUR THAT GLITTERS: The timepieces in the cocktail collection were designed with holiday parties in mind. These jewelryinspired watches are set within shimmering gold- and silvertone bracelets, with sparkling pavé detailing around the dials, for stylish pieces that make a statement as well as they tell time. 78

Michael Kors Introduces The Latest Watch Collection

MODERN NEUTRALS: Drawing inspiration from the Swiss Alps at sunset, the Madelyn collection is crafted in a soft, sophisticated palette of dusky shades. These modern neutral colors -from rose dials to gray and blush leather straps -offset the elegant yet sporty silhouette of the watch and its unique details, including a slanted baguette top-ring and Roman numeral indexes.

PETITE PERFECTION: Feminine and chic, Michael Kors’ petite watches are the ultimate gift for every woman. Smaller versions of the beloved Darci and Kerry styles are perfectly sized at 33 mm. These dainty yet daring styles are available in full gold-, silver- or rose gold-tone, or featuring a pop of fuchsia at the dial.

Michael Kors is pleased to introduce the latest watch collection. Drawing on a rich palette and featuring luxe leathers, fall’s women’s and men’s watches evoke the season’s rich refinement. The Sawyer and the Whitley, both new for women, capture fall’s lush sensibility with dials and leather straps in shades of navy, merlot, gray and brown. The sporty-looking Sawyer features chronograph movements, polished stainless steel and crystal markers. Whitley’s feminine appeal derives from an oval-shaped case outlined in sparkling pave and elegant Roman numeral hour markers.For men, the new Brecken is the epitome of a modern sport watch, combining a clean, simplified dial with sophisticated Roman numerals. The Brecken comes in stainless steel or rose gold-tone with a black leather strap. Leather is in fact a key design element for fall, and straps in hues like whisky brown and black are offered on a number of other men’s watches, including the popular Gage. 79

The new assortment showcases a bevy of sleek silhouettes and semi-precious stone accents that offer a subtle look when worn alone and make a bold statement when stacked together.Of special note is the use of black agate, a sophisticated touch to necklaces, bracelets and rings.Whether it’s a chic accent on a barrel ring or added flair to a pendant necklace, agate effortlessly imbues the collection with show-stopping appeal. Modern glamour is cast in bracelets and rings with clean bold shapes, each piece designed in the brand’s signature metallic hues -gold-tone, silver-tone and rose gold-tone -and finished with a polished Michael Kors logo plaque.

Time Holiday Collection

Introduces Bold & Powerful New Collections

New collection marks a milestone for the whole concept of Diesel watches. Taking inspiration from Diesel’s biker-inspired fashion culture, we have engineered one of the biggest, boldest and most attitude-filled seasons on record. DKNY draws inspiration from the everyday details of the city, from the metals and hinges of the subway to the shapes and architecture of the skyscrapers. DKNY moves to an urban beat with timepieces evocative of the spirit and energy that define New York.

The biker persona is a core element within the DNA of the Diesel brand. The attitude is sought after by old and young alike as an escape from the norm, as an alter ego that provides a sense of freedom and true adventure.

The Urban Metals Collection reflects the very heart of DKNY. Watches that are confident and effortlessly cool come to life in modern shapes. In concrete-inspired shades of a grey palette, these styles transition day to night, desk to dance floor. The sleek Parsons is updated with a flat, chain link bracelet to create an edgy look. SoHo, a DKNY favorite, features a new dial accented with just the right amount of sparkle and is available in a variety of bracelet and strap options.

Diesel Watches introduces Leather Bound- a complete line-up of our boldest and out of- the-box designs, including our new platform, Iron side. We’ve chopped, chewed-up, burned, leather-wrapped, studded and rebuilt everything you knew to be true about watch design and have created a masterpiece line-up of adrenaline-pumped, one-of-a-kind watches that scream to the world that fading into the crowd is not an option. As if that wasn’t enough, Diesel introduces a new hero platform that has harnessed the magnitude and force of the mechanical appeal to bring to life Diesel’s raw edge and defiant personality.

The Urban Essentials Collection introduces the new Pelham style, featuring a geometric logo-patterned dial within a chic, elongated case. Paired with a modern three-link bracelet, Pelham is an instant must-have.

Introducing Machinus: Boasting a multi-level, 4-time zone index, Machinus has the power to command a room and will capture the attention of any spectator. The fusion of machinery and style makes this new platform an aggressive opponent to any brave enough to challenge.

BLACK OUT AEROLINER CHRONO: A Fresh Approach To Timeless Minimalism The color “Black” is timeless and impressive as it takes the brand renowned for its elite international chic to new levels. Against this dressed down, unconstructed background, in Spring/Summer 2015, BOSS Watches launch the “BLACK OUT AEROLINER CHRONO”, inspired by classic elegant aviator chronographs, yet reinterpreted with a touch of modernity.

Part of the brand’s modern, minimalist, matte “BLACK OUT” collection, and exuding the true essence of the BOSS brand elegance, this new iteration of the popular AEROLINER family is equipped with a flyback three-counter chronograph movement. The 21st century use of sun-blasted matte black iconic plated metal on both the 44mm -sized “BLACK OUT AEROLINER CHRONO” case and three-row steel bracelet option provides a strongly contemporary edge to the brand’s sophisticated classic DNA. Providing a festive touch to the inky depths of a sophisticated matte black dial, delicate yellow-gold colored details and Arabic numerals also conspire to bring a whole new level of convivial unexpectedness to the “BLACK OUT AEROLINER”, making it the perfect accompaniment for every occasion.


On The Road Again With Boss Orange –

Destination Sao Paolo Everything is up for reinvention. Details and accessories play a key role while characteristic elements are revisited and rethought for a new generation. BOSS Orange hits the road in style with the launch of SAO PAULO - the latest sizzling iteration of the BOSS Orange urban watch line.

Named for the Brazilian city whose inhabitants are renowned for their lighthearted lifestyle and enthusiastic energy, the BOSS Orange SAO PAULO Watches collection proceeds with its successful international predecessors, including namesakes of cities ranging from NEW YORK to BRISBANE. The collection of watches perfectly embodies the travelling spirit of the BOSS Orange Spring/Summer clothing collection which was inspired by the slogan “What if Life was a Road Movie?”. A road trip from New York City to the West Coast, via grand landscapes and breath-taking deserts, the collection seeks to add a modern, urban edge to the road movie theme with all its vintage connotations. With its unconventional twist and rugged urban chic characteristics, the BOSS Orange SAO PAULO collection fits perfectly into this backdrop. Filled with energy and confidence, it is about shared moments – and the achievement of youthful dreams. Its boldly offbeat spirit, inspired by real diving watches, brings a touch of sporty difference to any urban environment. As much rooted in an independent mind-set as it is in a free-spirited lifestyle, in 2015, the BOSS Orange SAO PAULO Watches are undoubtedly the hottest new thing in town or on the road. Available in a plain version or a ruggedly chic threecounter chronograph, the BOSS Orange SAO PAULO line offers a bright new pop fashion element as part of a state-of-the-art technical addition to its cosmopolitan siblings. This unexpected approach is embodied in a newly introduced treatment BOSS has adopted for its watch crystals, resulting in a choice of blue or yellow versions. For the more conservative-minded city slickers, a plain option is also on offer, sporting its own touch of individuality with dial details in grey or green. These hues both echo and complement the colorful

palette of the BOSS Orange collection, which includes light gray, dusk blue, pumpkin orange, deep teal, crushed berry, golden yellow and dusty olive. This maverick attitude is enhanced by an exclusive ion plating treatment on the robust, traveler style 46mm case, along with a perfectly harmonious blend of fashion and sportiness with a black matte sunray dial. Add a choice of a black silicon strap, hand-stitched to match the particular crystal of the model in question, or hard-wearing black ion-plated steel alternative and it’s on the road again with BOSS Orange.

The latest collection of Scuderia Ferrari watchs hits the fast track in style

A new generation of the most successful watch family in the Scuderia Ferrari line hitting the track for the season, Red Rev captures the thrill of race day for the true fan with a bold new honeycomb texture inspired by the layered structure of a racecar’s monocoque chassis/body construction. This new trademark texture defines not only the dial, but also the sides of the case, and the bi-level silicone straps featuring bright logo detail and grooves inspired by the front grille of a racecar. Keeping pace with the trend toward bigger, bolder, high-performance watches, new Red Rev designs reveal a more flowing ergonomic shape from case to strap. Their round 44mm and 38mm cases sport a new contrasting matte/polished finish reminiscent of a Ferrari dashboard, while a black ion-plated crown with etched Prancing Horse logo becomes a distinctive new design signature. Revving up the style of this dynamic new crowd-pleasing collection, the richly detailed, multi-level, matte-finish dials sport a brightly colored “rev counter” accent between 12 and 3 o’clock. A stainless steel classic tongue buckle with Scudetto-shaped button/ keeper secures the straps. Precise 3-hand quartz engines power all new RedRev timekeepers.

Miss Balmain Dream. Time’s salute to simplicity. From conservative to exuberant, today’s feminine dress styles display ever more diversity. Reconciling all fashions and styles, the cool simplicity of a Miss Balmain Dream... One of the most engaging features of today’s fashion scene is its wild mixture of styles, regardless of age. From late teenagers to mature women, the unexpected and unconventional reigns supreme. With one notable exception: Miss Balmain Dream. Its simple lines and proven reliability win instant approval whatever the outfit it’s paired with. For all their design simplicity – basic round case 34 mm in diameter and 6.70 mm thick devoid of superfluous adornment – Miss Balmain Dream watches come in a variety of designs typical of Balmain: 316L steel or steel enlivened with yellow PVD, occasionally set with 68 diamonds 1 mm in diameter and together weighing 0.26 ct, in steel and rose PVD and even entirely in rose PVD. All Miss Balmain Dream cases house a highly dependable ETA F05.111 quartz movement providing three functions, including a date calendar. Cases all feature an attractive choice of dial faces: silver-toned enhanced by Balmain’s own classic arabesques, white mother-ofpearl or black guilloché pattern enhanced with four Roman numerals and eight hour markers. Date-calendar aperture at six o’clock. Every model is furthermore fitted with a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. Lastly, Miss Balmain Dream watches are secured to the wrist by a 316L steel bracelet, a steel and yellow or rose PVD design or a white or black leather strap. So, however extravagant or understated her outfit, the woman who selects a Miss Balmain Dream to grace her wrist benefits from its uncontested reliability and overall quality, at home everywhere and all the time.

Time is often so precious that it’s counted to the split second Balmainia Chrono Lady Arabesques: a chronograph bearing the Balmain arabesque. Perfect for recording memorable moments. The arabesque found on the bezel of each and every Balmainia Chrono Lady Arabesques model confirms its true Balmain character: an attractive timepiece notable for its enticing charm. Dials, cases and push pieces combine to form the collection’s neat, distinctive looks. Reliable and easy-to-use, Balmainia Chrono Lady Arabesques timepieces naturally reflect the Balmain spirit, expressed here with a keen sense of style. With modern arabesques inscribed on a silvery finish, a sunraybrushed pattern on a black ground or lustrous white motherof-pearl, Balmainia Lady Chrono Arabesques dials display an elegant array of 6 Roman numerals and 6 hour markers around a minute track featuring three chronograph sub-dials and the calendar window. Available in 316L steel or in pink PVD, the case carries an elegant arabesque framed by a pair of stylishly rectangular chronograph pushpieces, while its slim bezel may occasionally sport a crown of 73 sparkling diamonds totalling 0.28 ct. Along with a new plum-coloured aubergine satin strap, a

choice of fine-steel articulated bracelet or black or white leather strap keeps the watch firmly on the wrist. All eleven watches in the Balmainia Chrono Lady Arabesques collection come fitted with a reliable ETA G15.211 chronograph movement. Its timing functions plus the hour, minute and date are all displayed on their eye-catching dial face. The top pushpiece starts and stops the chronograph hand while the bottom pushpiece returns the chronograph hand to zero.

Casio Release World’s First G-SHOCK That Receives both of GPS Signals and Radio Wave Time-Calibration Signals

Keeps Accurate Time in the Harshest of Environments

Casio Computer Co., Ltd. introduced the G-SHOCK GPW1000 watch, marking the development and incorporation of the world’s first*1 hybrid time keeping system that receives both Global Positioning System (GPS) signals and radio wave timecalibration signals transmitted from six stations worldwide.

environments or surrounded by buildings or indoors, the GPW1000 keeps accurate time anywhere in the world by receiving GPS signals and radio wave time-calibration signals transmitted from six stations worldwide.

The first G-SHOCK was born in 1983 out of an engineer’s passion for creating an “unbreakable watch,” challenging the common notion of the wristwatch. Since then, the G-SHOCK series has continued to evolve over time by incorporating advanced technology and capturing trends based on a platform of toughness, to offer features, performance, and design that surpass the imagination of users.

The watch uses ultra-small motors for the hand drive mechanism, to secure the space to mount the hybrid time keeping system. To compensate for increased power consumption, the Casio G-SHOCK GPW-1000 features a new low-power consumption, high-performance GPS LSI, as well as a new shape of solar cell with high-efficiency output. Other features include a ceramic GPS antenna and fine resin case for high signal sensitivity and shock resistance.

The GPW-1000 watch was developed to realize the ultimate in toughness through refinements in accuracy and durability drawing on Casio technology. The watch offers unsurpassed toughness combined with the world’s first hybrid time keeping system. From dense forest to desert dunes, in marine

The Triple G Resist construction features a reinforced construction to resist shocks, centrifugal force, and vibrations. A high strength and durability carbon fiber insert band, and bezel with scratch-resistant DLC coating ensure a level of toughness to withstand the harshest of environments.


Casio Computer Co., Ltd., announced that it will release a new series in the G-SHOCK line of shock-resistant watches. The new G-STEEL watches offer outstanding design flexibility thanks to the new “layer guard structure,” which boasts a double-layer bezel combining resin and metal.

Casio to Release G-SHOCK Watches with Layered Bezels Made of Differing Materials New G-STEEL Series Introduces “Layer Guard Structure”

The newly released GST-S110 and GST-S100 watches feature different colors and materials in a single bezel for a new lineup characterized by accent colors and a three-dimensional feel. The GST-S110 has a bezel made of metal in the upper layer, and resin in the lower layer. This delivers the hard beauty of metal while retaining the impact absorption of resin. Meanwhile, the bezel on the GST-S100 features shock-absorbent resin

in an upper layer that is set in a lower layer of fine resin. This design highlights the tough look of resin. Each model is available in three different color variations, allowing customers to enjoy different looks with the same tough construction. Combining analog and digital displays, the face design offers excellent functionality and readability. With a hand-concealment function that temporarily moves the hands out of the way with just a touch of the button, the LCD can be fully visible at all times. There are also double LED lights. One is found at the six o’clock position and illuminates the entire face, while the other is a backlight for the LCD. This ensures that all information is visible, even in the dark.


Casio to Release New G-SHOCK MT-G Watch With Vintage Look Achieved by Aged IP Treatment

Casio Computer Co., Ltd., announced the latest new G-SHOCK MT-G shock-resistant watch. The new MTG-S1000V watch has a vintage look achieved by Aged IP treatment. The MT-G Metal Twisted line pairs the outstanding shockresistance of G-SHOCK watches with sophisticated metal finishes that go great with a business suit. The original MTG-S1000, released in 2013, is particularly well-regarded for its solid look and the shock-resistance delivered by its new Core Guard Structure.*1 *1 The central core module, made from resin, is protected by an inner case that is enclosed in a metal frame as if the case is floating inside the frame. The frame is secured to the bezel and back case with four pipes to guard the module from impacts. The new MTG-S1000V adds a black ion plating finish to the tough and elegant look of the original MTG-S1000 watch. The ion plating is then partly buffed off to give the watch a

vintage look that brings to mind the other prized possessions of tougher men—cars, motorcycles, lighters, and leather gear. The watch features Triple G Resist construction*2 for the ultimate in durability, and it has useful features such as dual dial world time to instantly tell the time in two locations. The MTG-S1000V is a great tool for men who lead active lives and demand rugged performance. *2 Reinforced construction to resist shocks, centrifugal force and vibrations. Like the MTG-S1000 watch, the new MTG-S1000V watch, including its movement, is made at the Premium Production Line of Yamagata Casio Co., Ltd., which is renowned for engineering excellence and quality. The MTG-S1000V delivers all the toughness and reliability a man expects of a premium Made in Japan watch.


To Release Fashionable and Sporty BABY-G Watches for Women Designed with the Motif of a Sports Team Uniform

Casio Computer Co., Ltd., announced that it will release the latest additions to its BABY-G family of shock-resistant watches for women—the BA-120 lineup of new watches designed with a sports team uniform motif. The new models in the BA-120 lineup feature a simple design that incorporates a number of elements taken from sports themes. With an outlined “12” index at the 12-o’clock position that evokes the number on the back of a team uniform for basketball, soccer, or another sport. Likewise, the index surrounding the watch face is shaped to resemble the collar and cuff lines of a team jersey, and accented in green, yellow, pink, or blue, depending on the model. The watch face itself features a lattice pattern designed to evoke the look of sportswear fabric. For finishing touches, the circular, sunken digital indicator and the square decorative elements represent the crest attached to team shirts. Casio designed all of these new models with a trendy, sporty look that adds a fun new flavor to women’s street fashion.

Casio Computer Co., Ltd., announced the latest models in its EDIFICE lineup of metal watches designed to convey the concept of “Speed and Intelligence.” The new Smartphone Link EQB-500 watches feature dramatically improved usability of world time functions. *1 The Bluetooth® word mark and logos are registered trademarks owned by Bluetooth SIG, Inc. and any use of such marks by Casio Computer Co., Ltd. is under license.

In 2012, Casio released a G-SHOCK watch that pairs with a smartphone using Bluetooth® Smart technology to notify the wearer of incoming calls or emails. Since then, Casio has been using this technology to create all new ways to use its watches, including STB-1000, that display fitness data and GBA-400, that can control a music player. Now, Casio is releasing the new Smartphone Link EQB-500 lineup of EDIFICE watches featuring all the benefits of a quality wristwatch, including a solar-powered movement, waterproof toughness and a refined design that only a metal watch can offer, while also enabling smartphone connectivity. This greatly improves the speed and ease of access to world time information because users had to calculate and manually set the time to the time zones of different cities. Each watch can connect to a smartphone*2 with just one push of a button and automatically adjust the time to the local time while correcting for daylight savings time if necessary. Furthermore, users can easily set the time corresponding to about 300 cities worldwide just by selecting from maps and city lists included in a Casio smartphone app. The center-positioned hour and minute hands along with one of the inset dials not only simultaneously display the time for two different cities, but can also switch the time being displayed on each with only a push of a button. This “Dual Dial Worldtime” lets users quickly check the time in their home country as well as the time in the locations of their business trips and holidays. *2 Requires installation of CASIO for download from the App Store CASIO WATCH+ app will be concurrently with the release
