HUBLOT novelties 2020 presented by CEO Ricardo Guadalupe at LVMH Watch Week Dubai

This was the philosophy upon which Hublot built up an excellent reputation in just a few decades on the very competitive high-quality timepiece market. The focus is perfectly ingrained in the idea of the art of fusion, which Hublot has applied since 1980 (40 years ago!) when Carlo Crocco designed the first case combining natural rubber and gold with a shape inspired by a ship’s porthole.

Exclusive Hands-On: H. Moser & Cie. Streamliner Flyback Chronograph Automatic

Edouard Meylan, CEO of H. Moser & Cie., explains: "We started with the bracelet, comfortable, elegant and different. We then designed this model around the chronograph function, as this was what we really wanted to highlight. The Streamliner is a chronograph which displays the time rather than a watch which features a chronograph. We preferred understatement, ergonomics, and legibility, opting for a central display with no sub dial: perfectly matching our minimalist philosophy. We took the very essence of the chronograph, and raised it to the next level".

Hamilton CEO Dolla presents the 33x36 mm Khaki Pilot Pioneer Mechanical

One of the most popular watches was the so called "W10", which Hamilton produced between 1973 and 1976. The "W10" was mainly issued to pilots. The 2019 Hamilton Khaki Pilot Pioneer is a re-edition of the "W10". The 33 x 36 mm stainless steel case (isn't this a good size for all of you seeking for a smaller watch?) is brushed to avoid unnecessary glare. The matt dial and box-shaped crystal with double anti-reflective coating also keep the readability up and reflections low. The Hamilton Khaki Pilot Pioneer powered by the "H-50" hand-wound calibre with 80 hours of power reserve.

The new HAMILTON Chrono-Matic 50 presented by CEO Sylvain Dolla

It was a time of innovation and many brands succeeded in producing watches that have stood the test of time, serving as a base for further innovation. HAMILTON/Büren worked in partnership with other brands (Breitling, Heuer-Leonidas, Hamilton/Büren & Dubois Dépraz) to develop the caliber 11. The series of watches that featured the movement were grouped under the Chrono-Matic name. Let us also not forget Zenith with its El Primmer caliber. An evolution that propelled the watch industry forward into a new chapter in its history.
