Louis Erard Regulator Power Reserve,It is powered by ETA Peseux 7001 RE9 mechanical hand-winding caliber with Louis Erard complication. This movement is based on well-known ETA 7001 movement and one extra module developed by Louis Erard in cooperation with the manufacturer of Swiss-made movements, Soprod S.A. A sober white dial showing hours by Roman numerals on an offset subdial at 12 o’clock, small seconds at 6 o’clock, and power reserve at 9 o’clock accentuate the classic sophistication of a richly nuanced collection.
Regulator-type watches are typically typified by their use of three distinct dials for the hours, minutes, and seconds. Minutes are displayed on the bigger important dial whereas an higher sub dial is used to point the hours and a decrease one is used to point the seconds.
The polished stainless steel case is water resistant to 165 feet (50 Meters or 5 ATM) and protected with an anti-reflective sapphire crystal on both sides. Additional comfort on the wrist ensures 100% leather black crocodile imitation strap with stainless steel folding clasp.
Although there are three sub-dials and four hands, the dial leaves an impression of tidiness and refined elegance.
White background makes the perfect combination with blue hands and beautifully written Roman numerals.
Over the last three years, Oris has been reclaiming its watchmaking heritage with the launch of Calibres 110 and 111, two innovative references that offer watch buyers a unique combination of complications – at a reasonable price.
This year, Oris adds a third unique calibre to this landmark portfolio, Calibre 112. As before, the new calibre has been developed in-house by Oris’s engineers. It features a 10-day power reserve (delivered by a single barrel), a patented non-linear power reserve indicator (which shows the remaining power reserve in ever greater detail as the time to wind the watch approaches), a date function, and a GMT function with day-night indicator, a combination never seen before in Swiss watchmaking.
The watch’s second time zone appears in a subdial at 12 o’clock and shows the time in full, with dedicated hour and minute hands, while the day/night indication is shown by two apertures in the dial. One is round and shaped like the Sun, the other crescent-shaped like the Moon. Under the dial there is a two-tone rotating disc. During the day this turns the Sun white and the Moon dark, and the reverse at night. At sunrise and sunset, both indicators become a mix of the two colours to show the progression. Each of the watch’s functions is operated through a single crown.
There’ll be a stainless steel option with either a blue-grey or opaline silver dial, and a bi-colour model with an 18-carat rose gold bezel and an opaline silver dial. All models come with Louisiana crocodile leather straps with a stainless steel folding clasp. There will also be a bracelet version of the stainless steel models.
The Grande Seconde Off-Centered Onyx displays a striking graphic simplicity and its stylized black dial of edgy, intense black draws one deep into the heart of Jaquet Droz’s history. The creative concept underlying this model was born in the 18th century, at the height of the Enlightenment, when Pierre Jaquet-Droz revolutionized watchmaking with his Grande Seconde. In conceiving two barely superimposed dials, one of them off-centered at 6 o’clock and with an extra-fine hand marking the seconds, Pierre Jaquet-Droz invented more than simply a new form of mechanism: he originated a new conception of Time, whose minutest instants became infinitely precious. Together the two dials form the figure 8, a symbol of balance and wholeness that the brand known by its twin stars would adopt for its lucky number.
The craftsmen at Jaquet Droz had already given an aesthetic twist to this understated motif by shifting the second dial slightly to 7 o’clock. 2016 sees a new variation introduced, featuring a 43-mm stainless steel case for the first time, whose diameter further amplifies the magnetic blackness of the dial. An exceptional color celebrated by artists since time immemorial, black takes on a whole new dimension in the Grande Seconde Off-Centered. Following in the great tradition of the mineral dials created by Jaquet Droz, an onyx disc has been painstakingly cut and polished to form the dial of this watch. Its deep black harbors an extraordinary intensity, recalling the mystery of an inkpot, where an author dips the quill, or the silky satin that a couture designer fashions into a garment.
Watchbazar loves the winding stem positioned at 4 o’clock which adds a dynamic touch to this iconic new watch, which also comes in a version that teams a silvered opaline dial with an alligator leather strap.
Jaquet Droz brings new mystery to the poetry of time in the Grande Seconde Off-Centered Onyx, sparking the same luminous flashes that inspire artists in the depths of their darkest nights.
As its name implies, the new ROADSTER BLACK NIGHT is inspired by night-time. It gives form and substance to an unusual design featuring a clever blend of materials, finishes and details.
Each watch in the collection features a sturdy sapphire-coated crystal, a 316L stainless steel case, a Swiss Made quartz movement and water resistance to 100 metres.
All models feature a 45 mm-diameter stainless steel case, bearing powerful and vigorous testimony to time and exuding even greater energy in the black PVD-finish version.
The black dial is subtly highlighted by a play on red and white effects recalling the Swiss flag and the essence of the brand. The standout red accents are provided by the ROADSTER BLACK NIGHT signature appearing below the Wenger logo, as well as the seconds hand. Creating a striking contrast with the black dial background, the white hour-markers and the rims of the three chronograph counters lend an elegant touch to this model with its sporty yet refined design. The luminescent hands, hour-markers and Wenger logo ensure perfect readability in the dark.
The date window at 3 o’clock and the presence of the unidirectional rotating bezel complement the functions of the three-hand model.
Available in chronograph or three-hand versions, this timepiece with its resolutely urban-inspired mood combines passion, strength and precision.
A broad range of straps ensures a pleasing diversity of personalized options available on the ROADSTER BLACK NIGHT model.
A choice of variations – ranging from an additional racing leather strap with red top-stitching or a black silicon strap to vintage chestnut brown leather NATO version or camouflage-patterned green nylon versions – serve to accentuate the classic or trendy colors.
A wrist mate designed for daily use, the steel-bracelet model highlights the urban spirit of the collection and is synonymous with sturdiness and robustness.
Hans Noll created and founded Hanowa in Bienne, Switzerland in 1963 and his brand soon earned an enviable reputation for exceptional watchmaking. By 1990, Hanowa had firmly established its signature style of robust sport watches at accessible prices. The cognomen “Swiss Military” Hanowa was later adopted to underscore the virtuesthat this brand shares with Switzerland’s armed forces: robustness, endurance, high precision, and the ability to function reliably under extreme conditions.
Officially licensed by the Swiss Confederation, Swiss Military Hanowa is recognised around the world for its strong expertise in the genres of sport, performance and lifestyle watches. High-quality materials and a stylish vocabulary of diverse colours and shapes make these timepieces uniquely special and ideally suited for individualistic, quality-conscious lifestyles. The Swiss cross logo bears witness to the exacting standards of quality upheld by Swiss Military Hanowa.
Swiss Military Hanowa has added seven new versions to the Crusader Chrono line. Stainless steel cases and metal bracelets distinguish three of these newcomers; the other four combine stainless steel cases and genuine leather straps with contrasting white stitching. Each case is crafted from stainless steel, measures 43mm in diameter, and is equipped with a precise Swiss quartz chronograph calibre.
Watchbazar loves the tidily arranged dial with partially luminous hands and the indices which deliver superior legibility under all lighting conditions.
A date display occupies a window at “4 o’clock”, while clou de Paris embellishment lends a decorative touch to the centre of the face. A tachymeter scale along the bezel adds even greater functionality to this multi-talented chronograph.
In 2014, Jacob & Co stunned the watch industry with the launch of the Astronomia Gravitational TripleAxis Tourbillon. This year, the brand is further extending upon the
innovations of the Astronomia with the launch of the Astronomia Sky, adding a never-before-seen complication: a sidereal display in three dimensions combined with an oval sky indicator and a 24-hour day and night display.
The patented Jacob Cut of the spherical 288-facet diamond symbolizing the moon lights up the celestial vault depicted on the dial that it sweeps around in 20 minutes, all the while performing 60-second rotations on its own axis. Truly mesmerizing! Yet this is only one of the eight main characteristics of the Astronomia Sky, equipped with a triple-axis gravitational tourbillon with astronomical sidereal display.
For the first time ever, a sidereal calendar is depicted in three dimensions, while a star-studded sky appearing on a grade 5 titanium dial makes one rotation in a sidereal year: the time required for the Earth to complete its orbit and, as seen from the earth, for the sun to regain the same position among the stars in the celestial vault. The globe levitating in the center naturally performs its rotation in one sidereal day and is complemented by a day/night indicator. The Astronomia Sky also comprises a perpetual calendar, with months displayed on the edge of the dial and visible through the domed crystal.
Only 18 individually numbered pieces will be made.
Watchbazar feels that The Astronomia Gravitational Triple Axis Tourbillon was already an extremely complicated watch. The new Astronomia Sky takes the challenge even further and Jacob & Co did it well.
Watchbazar was exicted to see the new masterpiece from Credor. A tourbillon with three-dimensional engraving and lacquer work inspired by the art of the Edo period.
FUGAKU Tourbillon Limited Edition in the Credor brand, Seiko Watch Corporation (“Seiko”) is honoring the Japanese ideals of beauty in a unique and dramatic style. Based on the ultra-thin movement, Caliber 68, this remarkable luxury watch demonstrates Japanese craftsmanship at its finest in its movement adjustment, its metal engraving and its lacquer finishing. Just eight watches will be made and they will be presented at Seiko’s Boutiques worldwide in 2016.
Seiko’s first ever tourbillon movement, caliber 6830, is less than 4mm thick and was created utilizing the utmost in mechanical movement manufacturing expertise, with the base part a mere 1.98mm thick. Including the carriage, the whole movement measures just 3.98mm in depth, and the diameter is just 25.6mm, with the result that it is the world’s smallest tourbillon by volume2 is made and assembled by Satoshi Hiraga. Kiyoshi Terui is the engraver, and the overall design, including the integration of the tourbillon, metal engraving, and lacquer work, is the work entrusted to Nobuhiro Kosugi, the first watch designer to be selected as a Master Craftsman. Urushi expert Isshu Tamura contributes the lacquer finish. Together, their skills and advanced techniques have yielded a work of art that expresses the essence of the Japanese sense of beauty.
Katsushika Hokusai’s series ‘Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji’ is renowned worldwide and is an icon of Japanese culture. Painted in the 19th century in the Edo period, The Great Wave off Kanagawa, brought Hokusai worldwide fame, thanks to its strikingly dynamic composition and use of perspective. This print inspired the creation of this watch. The delicacy of the dial engraving is extraordinary. Kiyoshi Terui worked to the limits of his technical skill in engraving to breathe three-dimensional life into the wave that dominates the scene depicted on the dial. The 18k yellow and white gold wave is 1.6mm at its thickest and 0.5mm at its thinnest, a true marvel of manual craftsmanship.
The reverse side of the watch features the same wave, combining engraving and lacquer finishing to create a modern, sharp and brilliant version of the theme. On the balance wheel bridge is the outline shape of Mt. Fuji, which is so central to Hokusai’s work and to the world’s view of Japan today. The watch’s name, FUGAKU, is another way in which the Japanese language describes Mt. Fuji.
Seiko Credor Fugauku Tourbillon Limited Edition watches are priced at about $450,000
Its been 10 years since Hublot launched its first All Black Watch,In sync with the same trend Hublot presented the new Big Bang Unico Sapphire All Black.
“By its nature, black absorbs all visible radiation and does not reflect any light,” explains Jean-Claude Biver, Chairman of Hublot. “In this original interpretation of our All Black concept, Hublot is once again playing with received ideas. The Big Bang Unico Sapphire All Black is both transparent and completely robed in black. What is more, it does not absorb light. In fact, it lets light pass through. It embodies the dichotomy of the visible and invisible, the seen and the unseen”.
The case middle, bezel and back of the Big Bang Unico Sapphire are cut from blocks of sapphire, a material which is almost as hard and scratch-resistant as diamond (9 on the Mohs scale as opposed to 10 for diamond). Hublot has called on the expertise of a Swiss specialist as part of an exclusive partnership to develop the unique material. Only a few pieces forming the spine of the watch are made from titanium: the screws, the crown, which is over-molded with silicon, and the deployant buckle. Its skeleton dial, made from transparent resin, reveals all the gears of the proprietary Unico HUB1242 movement and its finishes. Complementing its ethereal silhouette, its strap – transparent – is invisible so that the skin can be seen through it.
The Big Bang Unico Sapphire is water-resistant to 50 metres.
