JeanRichard Terrascope, a relatively new family of “masculine” timekeepers has just been updated with a number of “two-tone” models that successfully combine gold and steel. Carefully mixing textures and colors, the Swiss-based brand effectively delivered one of the most attractive cushion-shaped watches currently available on the market.
The 2014 Girard-Perregaux Chrono Hawk Pink Gold (Ref. 49970-34-633-BB6B) sports traditional for the Swiss brand extremely well-balanced look that comes as a successful combination of good taste and almost unrivaled design skills. While the new timepiece has a number of elements that are a bit too ahem stylized, they somehow manage to be organic when you look at the gadget as a whole. I have a strong suspicion that GP uses some sort of magic to make such beautiful accessories.
Celebrating the 90th anniversary of its legendary Meisterstuck pen that Montblanc has first released in 1924, the Swiss luxury brand releases the dressy Montblanc Meisterstuck Heritage Pulsograph by Minerva. Limited to just 90 pieces, the timekeeper features a working mechanical pulsometer: a thing that was popular among wealthy medical doctors during the first decades of the last century.
For the year 2014, the Italian fashion brand has updated its Octo family with a beautiful Bvlgari Octo Chronograph.
A. Lange & Sohne has presented whole seven new models at the SIHH 2014 event, yet it is the gorgeous Richard Lange Perpetual Calendar “Terraluna” that will possibly get the most attention from both journalists and connoisseurs alike.
With its water resistance rating of just 100 meters the 2014 IWC Aquatimer Perpetual Calendar Digital Date-Month (Ref. IW379401) is not the first watch to be recommended for a serious diver. Yet, the new member of the legendary Aquatimer family still looks appealing thanks to its sexy “digital” display of the date and month.
Dubail Paris, a particularly expensive boutique, which is located on the famous Place Vendome, will soon start selling a limited edition version of the dressy Vacheron Constantin Patrimony Contemporaine Bi-Retrograde. Sporting the same hours and minutes, as well as days of week and date indicators, the Ref. 86020 differs from the 2010 model only with the choice of materials and color combinations.
Here is a nice update from Chopard. Re-established back in 1963 when it was sold to a goldsmith Karl Scheufele III, the company rose to its former glory like a ballistic rocket. A pair of limited edition Chopard L.U.C 1963 50th Anniversary Chronometers (refs. 161963-5001 and 161963-9001) marks the semi-centenary of the luxury brand.
A. Lange & Sohne, an elite German watchmaker as well as a jewel in the crown of the Richemont Group (just for context, their portfolio also includes such gems as IWC, Jaeger-LeCoultre, and Panerai,) has recently launched its new masterpiece. The A. Lange & Sohne Grand Lange 1 Moon Phase (Ref. 139.032) features a familiar design of its face with lots of off-centered sub-dials and the signature big date indicator, which is now powered by a new version of their gorgeous Caliber L095 hand-wound movement.
Back in December 2010, when the Swiss manufacturer was going to celebrate the 80th anniversary of its iconic 1931 Reverso model, the brand has introduced an outstanding Jaeger-LeCoultre Grande Reverso Ultra Thin Tribute to 1931 Limited Edition. The timekeeper proved to be so popular among thousands of fans that exactly a year later JLC introduced an even more appealing Grande Reverso 1931 Rouge Hand-Wound, and a later year still a splendid Grande Reverso Ultra Thin Duoface Bleu. This year, the company introduces Jaeger-LeCoultre Grande Reverso Ultra Thin 1931 (ref. Q2782560) that features a slightly different, but an even more historically correct dial.
