HARRy Winston

Histoire De tourbillon 2 Histoire de tourbillon 2 embodies the visionary spirit and the determination of Harry Winston to explore new dimensions in a daring and distinctive manner. the bi-axial flying tourbillon combines two concentric carriages to create a striking visual effect. Housed within an outer carriage completing one full turn in 120 seconds, the internal carriage containing the balance, balance-spring and escapement revolves in just 40 seconds. While this multidimensional regulating-organ complication plays the starring role, the brand’s signature excentered look is expressed in a resolutely atypical manner. Eight sapphire crystals punctuate the case, revealing the tourbillon coupled with running seconds at 9 o’clock, the hours with day/night indication at 2 o’clock, and the minutes at 6 o’clock. this is an Haute Horlogerie high-tech instrument that does not merely measure time, but actually lives it with vibrant energy and confidence. 20-piece limited edition. MoveMent_ Hand-wound bi-axial flying tourbillon with outer carriage in titanium and internal carriage set at a 10-degree angle. 95 parts, circulargrained, polished and shotpeened finishes. 50-hour power reserve.

HorologiCal maCHine n°2-sV – Final eDitions After three successful years, the HM2 is preparing to bow out with two 18-piece limited series, each fitted with the legendary sapphire crystal case – and thereby preserving the exclusive nature of this second Mb&f adventure. the backdrop of the HM2-black sv, composed of a black titanium mainplate, highlights the “engine” framed by an electric green gasket, whose intensity is reflected on the winding rotor visible through the back. Meanwhile, the HM2-Red sv combines red gold with touches of black, metallic silvered shades as well as transparency effects. the result is two superb colour combinations at the heart of these timepieces embodying a horological revolution in terms of both their technology and of the construction principles behind them.

golDen briDge automatiC

following its worldwide success, the Meccanico dg is now being offered in a new exclusive version. A veritable technical masterpiece designed by fawaz gruosi and a treasure-house of virtuosity, this exceptional piece displays the time for two time zones on a double analogue and mechanical digital display. for the first time, these are in white rather than green or gold. the timepiece, which won the grand Prix de l’Horlogerie in 2009, is a veritable interplay of contrasts with hourmarkers and micro-segments decked out in white to offset the watch’s dominant matt black appearance to greater effect. the dark alligator strap sets off a design that is both understated and impulsive. An exclusive foretaste of a special collection to be unveiled in its entirety at baselworld.

When it was presented in 1980, the golden bridge baguette movement made a deep impression and opened a new chapter in horology. thirty years on, this exceptional linear movement still exerts its magic and once more finds itself at centre stage with, for the first time, an automatic version in a larger red or white gold case. And in the spotlight is the new Co 313 calibre, a linear movement demanding an exceptionally high level of horological savoir-faire. the two-sided dial and the case’s four sapphire crystal sides have been carefully structured to highlight this exceptional automatic movement. A limited edition, not surprisingly, with 130 watches available in red gold and 70 in white gold.

tourbillon FurtiF

la stellaire

Hysek presents an extrapolation of its tourbillon through a masterful creation in which transparency is the very core of an ultracontemporary design. Conceived, developed and produced in its own Manufacture, this exclusive and intensely square hand-wound calibre beats to the cadence of a 60-second flying tourbillon fitted with a titanium balance. And because magic only takes on its true meaning through poetic evocation, its beating heart visible from all sides has been entirely hand-crafted to create an exquisite filigreework effect. this timepiece issued in a 30-piece limited edition is intended for art connoisseurs who will see it as a kinetic sculpture to be worn on the wrist.

the stellaire by badollet has its head in the stars. imbued with a dreamlike sense of mystery, it is distinguished by its mainplate entirely crafted in meteorite and by the upper bridge of the tourbillon carriage set with extra-terrestrial olivines, representing an unprecedented technical feat. the movement bridges appear to be floating weightlessly, forming galactic circles reminiscent of the path traced by stars spinning around the same centre of gravity. nature itself plays a part in making each of these watches truly unique, since the high proportion of iron in the meteorite, exposed to cosmic rays for around 93 million years, may modify the colour of the movement without altering its functionality. 30-piece limited series.

As the star model in the universo collection, the tourbillon represents the peak of horological complications by vasto, a brand engaged in a perpetual quest for excellence. the tourbillon bridge shaped like a treble clef will appeal to aficionados of both fine timepieces and classical music. such meticulous attention to detail is further displayed in the magnificent 50-diamond gem-setting adorning the tourbillon bridge and the dial opening at 9 o’clock ensuring an unobstructed view. the result is an exceptional rose gold timepiece radiating an exquisitely poetic aura.

this new creation from bijouMontre draws its inspiration directly from the mysterious and magical world of shakespeare’s play – A Midsummer night’s dream. Combining the flamboyant colours of citrine, amethyst, peridot, rhodolite and topaz, the bM 22010t injects new youth into this ethereal tale. diamond-set (0.9 carat) leaves at centre stage drift across the white mother-of-pearl dial and cascade over the case. Reflecting the exquisite delicacy of absolute femininity, this elegant timepiece is available in a limited edition of 666.

Mira’s first ladies’ collection tells a love story. once upon a time, a swan was floating above a mother-of-pearl and black aventurine lake, waiting for its companion. the incarnation of fidelity, the eternal bird invests this elegant and timeless piece with deep significance. And as it is dedicated to women, it sparkles with a setting of no fewer than 166 diamonds. Combined with pink gold and mother-of-pearl, these accentuate the beauty and purity of the fée Céleste’s plumage, which seems to skim over the passing time, symbolised here by the off-centre hours at 12 o’clock and the retrograde minutes at 6 o’clock. A delicate combination of imagery and imagination on the path to dreams.

Maurice lacroix is never one to shy away from a challenge! Having pushed back the limits with the Roue Carrée by giving a totally new angle to mark the passage of time, Maurice lacroix has now created a seconds mechanism that differs from its circular counterparts. Activated by a toothed clover-leaf wheel, the small seconds comes to life in a lively and steadfast rhythm provided by an openwork square wheel. to leave the seconds hand squarely in the spotlight, the hours and minutes are indicated by simple central hands coated with superluminova. Contemporary and revolutionary, the Masterpiece Roue Carrée seconde has given time a new philosophy, in which aesthetics and engineering go hand in hand.

Here for the first time is a watch that tells the time without conventional hands, numbers or discs! frédéric Jouvenot has achieved a real tour de force with its solar deity collection, named after the sunbeam design of its hour display. the path of the sun and the alternating day/night cycle are shown by means of 12 radio-concentric, threedimensional rays. At midday, when the sun is at its zenith, all the sunbeams are golden to represent full daylight. As time passes, the sunbeams turn black one by one as day moves towards night. All the models are named after a god, like the Helios, which won the gtE 2011 superwatch Award, or the inti. A revolutionary, avant-garde timepiece offered in a limited edition.

following on from the Mn-R1 quartz watch comes the Mn-R2 equipped with an automatic movement. the latest addition to the Mystery line by Rodania features an attractive range of assets including a date display at 3 o’clock, a highly expressive rectangular case, a ceramic bracelet and a deep black exterior. its decidedly urban and contemporary look will doubtless make this a much-coveted model just like its predecessors.

linius automatiC

the new Ernest borel collection is inspired by the cubist art movement and its initiator, the artist georges braque. the warm radiance of rose gold suffusing the case, hour-markers and bracelet instils this timepiece with a subtle blend of classicism and creativity. the sunburst guilloché motif in the dial centre creates a sense of generous space and depth, while the diamond hourmarkers represent a departure from standard conventions exuding a more impressionist vision. A cleverly executed interpretation of the geometry of shapes for a timepiece that is anything but ordinary.

Acknowledged as a brand that respects the quintessence of watchmaking, Rodania nonetheless shows no lack of creativity and boldness. Witness the new linius model now enriching the Automatic collection. its imposing rectangular case frames a powerful black dial enhanced by Roman numerals stretching towards the centre, while the see-through caseback enables one to admire the to-and-fro motion of the movement driving this resolutely masculine and extremely comfortable model.

With the loeb summer Collection, Marvin underlines the long tradition that links the brand to the passion for car racing. in 1930, it launched the “tyre watch”, a timepiece protected by a rubber tyre. since 2010, it has worked with sébastien loeb, seven-time world rally champion, on a project which reflects his image. dynamic, vibrantly coloured and high-performing, the chronograph, which is accurate to 1/10th of a second, has a 44 mm case with shaped sides meticulously designed in conjunction with the champion. the dial proudly bears his signature, while the caseback is engraved with his title, “World Rally Champion”.

While the Alliance collection has evolved constantly, its values have remained intact. Reliability, understated design, functionality and swiss quality are the unchanging core of timepieces from victorinox swiss Army. the latest Alliance model with its flowing and dynamic lines is a perfect embodiment of these standards. the lyre-shaped horns, round case and brushed steel form a complementary and harmonious whole. the charcoal-grey matt lacquered dial reflects a modest approach echoed by the counters, the hour-markers including only three Arabic numerals and indeed the entire layout. this extremely pared-down approach, combined with meticulous attention to detail and undeniable know-how, combine to make this a truly classic model with a subtly modern touch.
