SIHH 2014: Greubel Forsey QP à Équation

greubel_forsey_150

The perpetual calendar timepieces on our wrists today are not only among the oldest horological complications, they are descended from devices used by the clergy during the Middle Ages to calculate seasonal feasts.  For 2014, Greubel Forsey will create a unique perpetual calendar combined with an Equation of Time, all in an easy to read and easy to use, though not necessarily easy to afford timepiece called the QP à Équation. … [Read more...]

Five “Uber Watches” from SIHH

Greubel Forsey Double Balancier

There are watches and there are watches. Included in the second category are pieces so technically extravagant, so hyper-engineered that they belong to a very special club.

SIHH Day Four: Vacheron Constantin and Ralph Lauren

VC_Metiers_dArt_150

Geneva’s luxurious SIHH watch fair rolls on. Here's a taste of the new releases from two more of the exhibiting brands. Vacheron Constantin raised lots of eyebrows this year with its bold and unexpected (at least by those of us in the watch press) decision to focus its 2013 SIHH novelties entirely on ladies. That’s correct: not a single new release from Vacheron this year is a men’s watch. Fortunately for the fairer sex, the women’s pieces that the brand introduced have a little … [Read more...]
