Hermès

Please allow me to draw your attention to Only Watch 2017

 

This synergy, under the patronage and support of HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco, driven by the enthusiasm shown by individuals within the brands and partners, shows a deep wish to help this noble cause. In six editions, Only Watch has raised more than 25 million euros for Association Monégasque contre les Myopathies (Monaco Association against Duchenne muscular dystrophy) helping make significant advances in research over a decade.

 

Christie’s will be conducting the auction for the first time 

Another four brands join the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) in 2018

Good news from Geneva! The Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie continues to grow, while the number of exhibitors at Baselworld has been dramatically declining. The central aisles of the SIHH in Geneva are extended for the arrival of Hermès, while a bigger Carré des Horlogers makes room for DeWitt, Chronométrie Ferdinand Berthoud and Romain Gauthier.   

31 Baselworld 2017 novelties that really impressed me.

Why 31? That´s the number I counted when finishing my choice and putting the story together.  Please do not expect a product listing of ticking superlatives here or a ranking of the most expensive / crazy watches. What I will show you instead are watches that really impressed me - 31 in total. Either through their good and cool design, technical realization, impeccable quality and/or reasonable price. 

Baselworld 2017: Hermès Slim d’Hermès L’heure impatiente

 

This is what you do with the Hermès Slim d’Hermès L’heure impatiente: You set the counter of the watch to the time of an eagerly awaited event that will take place in less than 12 hours. Exactly one hour before it occurs, the mechanical hourglass (the sectoral countdown scale at 7 o´clock position) is set in motion and its progress can be followed on the dial.
