Baselworld 2013, Day Two: Maurice Lacroix, Chopard, Carl F. Bucherer

Chopard sent out advance news and photos of the new Superfast models in its Classic Racing series, which we featured previously on At Baselworld, the brand presented its redesigned Mille Miglia watch for 2013 and two highly complicated models in its L.U.C. collection. The L.U.C. Perpetual T (front and back, below) contains a perpetual calendar and a tourbillon, powered by a manual-wound Chopard movement with four barrels for a 216-hour power reserve.



The other L.U.C. über-watch is the L.U.C. Engine One H, which is designed to resemble an automobile’s engine block. Rather than a conventional dial, the watch, which has a tourbillon movement and a titanium case, has its hour and minute displays and tourbillon cage mounted on the horizontally oriented (that’s the “H”) mainplate.

Carl F. Bucherer celebrates its 125th anniversary this year and it marks the milestone in grand horological fashion, with its first tourbillon timepiece, a watch several years in the planning stages. Limited to 188 pieces and priced just below the six-figure mark at $91,000, the CFB Tourbillon (front and back, below) is in a 41-mm rose-gold case, and the dial arrangement places the tourbillon cage at 6 o’clock, a second time zone subdial at 12 o’clock, and an arc-shaped power reserve indicator at 9 o’clock.

    The Masterpiece Seconde Mystérieuse is one of the ugliest watches I have seen recently.

    Have to wonder, what were they thinking.

    Just my opinion.
