Perrelet

Perrelet’s Split-seconds Chronograph “Louis-Frédéric” is a tribute to the founder’s grandson. Some History here: Louis-Frédéric emigrated to Paris towards the end of the 18th century, became watchmaker to three successive kings of France, won competitions and in 1827 applied for a patent for his invention – the split-seconds chronograph counter, which also received an award from the Academy of Sciences in Paris. Almost two centuries later, Perrelet is reinterpreting this complication in two exceptional versions: one in white and pink gold limited to 50 pieces; the other in white gold in a limited series of 27. The movement is automatic (Perrelet P-241 calibre, 28,800 vib/h, 25 rubies, 46-hour power reserve)

Jules Verne and the Lunar Rock Watch

louismoinet_jules_vernesinstrument1_small

Louis Moinet’s new Jules Verne Instrument 1 is named after science fiction writer, Jules Verne who famously wrote Journey to the Center of the Earth. Though, they want to refer specifically to a particular novel – From the Earth to the Moon for the reason that the watch has an authenticated piece of lunar rock in the side of the case at 9′o’clock. Sure, it also provides a new method to start and stop a chronograph but A LUNAR ROCK?

Someone needs to tell Concord that its a recession. They just released the Tourbillion Gravity which has a bi-axial tourbillion. I really can’t tell how it works but its definitely awe inspiring to look at. The movement is a hand-wound, Concord C104 calibre (21,600 vib/h, 72-hour power reserve).

I didn’t know this but Movado claims they were the first one to show a complete date window in their watch back in 1946. This year, they bring it back. The watch uses an ETA movement.

Look at the two date disc go round and round

degrisogono_instrumento_grande_open_date_big

.. And round and round. De Grisogono’s Instrumento Grande Open Date is a “2009 replica” of their previous case rather than an updated model. It features an automatic movement that lays bare a dual date window disc as a design feature.

Talk to Me, Harry Winston

Harry Winston’s new self indulgent model is called ‘Talk to me, Harry Winston’. A little tacky but it definitely works as a marketing gimmick. The watch is a homage to Mr. Winston’s fetish for diamonds and the press release mentions how the words “Talk to me, Harry Winston” stamped on the watch moves around the case which I don’t know if it means that its stamped all around the case or that the ring actually moves.
