Swiss watch maker Montblanc has introduced yet another member of the growing TimeWalker family.
The new Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control 1833 Ultra Thin has a good chance of biting a healthy chunk of flesh off a market of deceptively simple while extremely elegant luxury timepieces, which is currently dominated by Patek Philippe's Calatrava family. With its remarkably clean design, which is both pleasant to look at and easy to read, the new dress watch has a good chance of becoming as desirable and highly sought after as the legendary Reverso line.
The Swiss Manufacture Audemars Piguet has revealed its new Royal Oak Carbon Concept Tourbillon and Chronograph watch (Reference 26265FO.OO.D002CR.01). Light as a Formula 1 car and sturdy as a Russian tank, this is the first watch with both case and movement made of so called "forged" carbon. Although the exterior design of this timekeeper looks a little bit too high tech to me, I must admit that, among all the recently introduced "sporty" chronographs, this is one offers the most balanced combination of cutting edge technologies and classic complications. If the Swiss brand will ever decide to make a one-off version for some charity event, I am sure that will beat a record or two when it comes to maximum price and a top number of bidders.
