Blancpain made a splash at the 2015 edition of Baselworld by unveiling a contemporary and even futuristic variation of its famous tourbillon carrousel model. The new L-Evolution Tourbillon Carrousel integrates the two complications designed to increase the accuracy of a movement. This brand is the only one who daring enough to marry these two mechanisms. But until now, it was only available in very classic, traditional versions. The L-Evolution b...

<p class="p1"><span class="s1">Chopard focused its 2015 novelties on men’s watches throughout their collection. For the first time, two new models of the Mille Miglia collection are now hosting a caliber produced by Fleurier Ebauches, a company belonging to Chopard, a move that reinforces the brand’s independence.

Rebellion Timepieces bring technical extravaganza into watchmaking with models that are ultra technical, massive and with a lot of complexity - including the design. We got the T-1000 and 540 Magnum Tourbillon in our hands to have a closer look. And they are very unique as each movement for instance ewas specially conceived for the brand with serious features. Rebellion is also an endurance racing car team that takes part to competitions such as ...

When The Car Industry Can Teach A Few Things To The Watch Industry
The car industry has gone through some major restructuring over the last 20 years with the emergence of powerful groups leading to the consolidation of the industry. This has resulted in fewer brands, improved production processes, improved service to the consumer, and improved reliability and performance. Well, those are just some of the most visible consequences, but it is interesting to make parallels with what the watch industry is going thro...

<p class="p1"><span class="s1">Girard-Perregaux introduced a brand new tourbillon minute repeater that keeps the code of the brand with its iconic 3 golden bridge feature, but shows a very distinctive and beautiful mouvement architecture. For the 70th anniversary of the 1945 line, the brand showed us a commemorative tourbillon, as well as a new titanium version of its New Tourbillon watch and some Métiers d’Art timepieces celebrating world maps.<...

The Nixie Machine is a clock that displays the hours, minutes, seconds as well as other functions. It was conceptualized by Franck Buchwald, an artist based in Berlin, well-known for manufacturing lamps with a steam-punk science-fiction design. The project...

The "Portuguese" watch is THE icon of IWC thanks to itsvery legible dial design, its large diameter and the art deco touch of the numbers that contrast with the leaf-shaped hands. All this has made the Portuguese very popular among men of taste. IWC refreshed the design of the whole collection for the 75th anniversary of its first market appearance. At that time, two Portuguese customers had asked IWC for a particularly precise watch. The brand d...
