  There is an old saying that goes something along the lines of: “It’s an ill wind that blows no good to someone”, and as the international airline industry once again looks worriedly towards the storm ravaged north Atlantic, and in particular the beautiful island of Iceland and its explosive geological armoury, for them and their winged fleets an ill wind hangs ominously in the air. Following weeks of intense seismic activity, including 1,000 earthquakes in one

Cartier add a new piece to their acclaimed portfolio of watches, the Cartier Rotunde de Cartier Second Time Zone Day Night model. There is no such thing as a "busy dial" in Cartier's Rotunde collection, and despite its abundance of indications, this new model manages to maintain equipoise and elegance.  At a first glance you would be forgiven for thinking that the "second time zone" in the title was perhaps a misprint.  However look closer and

Do we expect more from our timepieces these days?  You bet we do, and thanks to silicon we're getting more.  More precision, more longevity and now with the latest development announced by Vaucher Manufacture Fleurier and CSEM, more power reserve - enough in fact to keep a wristworn timekeeper ticking along happily for a month.  Or more.   Having spent a lifetime researching, developing and inventing you would think that on his retirement Pierre Genequand would perhaps

Ah - modern-day Horology.  In order to get noticed, and then to hold one's attention long enough to be admired, nowadays a timepiece really does need a meritorious feature - or two.  And, of course as the old saying goes "beauty is in the eye of the beholder" so it follows that we all have our preferences. Some enthusiasts prefer a busy dial - the whirr of the tourbillon or perhaps the flutter of multiple retrograde

The Architectural Beauty of the Louis Moinet Mecanograph New York Edition (… and that artisan “niche”).

The watch industry has had its fair share of “artisan” watches this year. All have been beautiful, all have been meritorious. We can safely say that traditional artisan techniques have been preserved, at least for now anyway. Métiers d’Art timepieces have been so plentiful that they have even been grouped together and have been described, albeit loosely, as a “trend” – a most plebeian term considering the wealth of materials and techniques involved and the

Enthusiasts of the El Primero may not appreciate this but die hard Rolling Stones fans will flutter towards it like moths to a flame - Zenith have "lipped and tongued" the 12-hour chrono counter of the El Primero Chronomaster 1969 as a tribute to the iconic rock band .... and the man behind this Stones/Zenith pairing is ..... Jean-Claude Biver, Director of the LVMH Group (... Who else?).     The Rolling Stones say "We are delighted to

GoS make jaw-droppingly beautiful watches.  If you had the opportunity to handle one of their timepieces at BaselWorld, then you may have failed to notice the hubbub of the great halls for just a few moments while you became entranced by the mystical properties of these unique artisan watch dials and cases.  Now there is a new collection to ogle over, the GoS Bifrost Isblå.

6o years ago Longines registered the name "Conquest", now the original typeface appears once again on one of their watch dials, this is the Longines Heritage 1954 - 2014.   For their new collections Longines often look backwards to move forwards, there is vintage-styling aplenty to be found in their portfolio, and when it comes to being sensitive to their original issues, Longines nail it time after time.   Let's get to the nitty gritty - the size.  The
