Review Watch News Sihh

Part one was the big new releases, part two was elegant and part three is moving outside the mainstream – brands that are small, new, exclusive or otherwise stand out from Richemontskaran…
Ralph Lauren’s bet on a slightly more serious clock line (from the previous, pretty jeans-and parfymtillverkartypiska, sniklinjen) in partnership with Richemont (they each own 50%) continues. During the SIHH appeared on the one hand, several stylish options in the Slim Classique series, but most attention was the model RL67 Safari, a rough sequel to the Sporting line. In the same 1930s romantic stuk as the other watches from Ralph Lauren RL67 has a unique look with its clear utomhusinspiration; dark gray case, Matt black plate and a green canvasband in same stuk on IWC Top Gun. Especially interesting are two things – to appeal to the market as a whole will model both in 39 mm and 45 mm, and is operated by Jaeger-Lecoultre chronograph movement 751/1.
Maybe not exclusive or narrow per se stand still, Girard Perregaux out at SIHH in years for the simple reason that they say “adieu” – from next year found companies in the Sowind Group (including JeanRichard Diverscope who released his LPR with a innovative power reserve display in the tolvmarkering) at the Basel fair. To celebrate its exodus chose Perregaux, among other things, to introduce the next part in his unadorned, elegant 1966 series, namely minutrepeater. The highest level at our workshop in an under-powered external and of Girard-Perregaux follow tradition just as affordable as discreet.
The Manufaktur Parmigiani Fleurier from urmakarbygden is something you do not stumble over each day in Sweden, but has a very good reputation among connoisseurs – for this year, the company released their seventeenth own movements in the form of a yearly calendar with moon phase andretrograddatum (extending over the top of the dial). Available in either white or pink gold watch is equipped with the brand’s characteristic Tonda-case.
Richard Mille continues to surprise with both terms like technology and applications. We showed earlier in the last part of materials series the all-new RM56 whose case is made of Sapphire Crystal and this year was released in addition to RM53 (for Argentine Pablo Mac Donough polospelare, in 15 ex) even the startling RM52 which sticking out with his work based on a döskalleformad plant bottom. Unlike other watches with döskalletema (Bell & Ross or Corum) it is therefore in this case (as always with Mille) is not art but a fully functional part of the design. The skull is also attached in the case of four bridges that make up bone knotorna of Jolly Roger-a little plojigt but with the greatest circumspection and oeftergivlighet in the technology.
Greubel Forsey is one of the many relatively young and quite advanced brands one can see in Geneva – founded in 2004 became Robert Greubel and Stephen Forsey soon renowned for their expertise, the result of that one since 1992 worked at Renaud & Papi is one of the most famous specialhusen for really complicated solutions to major brands (which is why it is now owned by Audemars Piguet). At SIHH released Quadruple Tourbillon Secret, a wristwatch from with a total of four tourbilloner, two of which are hidden and then only anas; really heavy technology in a in the context of extremely sober style.
Diamantexperterna Harry Winston, the Opus series into real living room furniture urmakeriets seriously – Histoire de Tourbillon 3 moves to certainly not from there. In a performance that smells of 1980s, cyberpunk and industrial fit technology designed by none other than … places to eat, Robert Greubel and Stephen Forsey, who made a trippeltourbillonkonstruktion with differential and the least odd display. Everything is packaged in white gold and quartz zalium a kilo (who is Harry Winston’s “House of metal”-an alloy of Zirconium) for this year’s undoubtedly with unique piece. Roger Dubuis is the last out of a a new interesting take on design and technology – in the new Pulsion-chronograph in titanium (which, of course, movement technically complies with all the requirements for the prestigious Genèvesigillet) enclosed not glass of any glasring, without screwed through the holes in the same; a different and very stylish solution.
