The 'Lady Arpels Planétarium' watch illustrates the Sun and the closest planets: Mercury, Venus and fnally Earth, along with its natural satellite, the Moon.

Each heavenly body moves at its actual speed, orbiting the dial in 88 days for Mercury, 224 days for Venus and 365 days for Earth.

In a key innovation for this piece, the Moon itself rotates around the Earth in 29.5 days. 

Pre-SIHH 2018: Vacheron Constantin Overseas Dual Time

 

Vacheron Constantin Overseas Dual Time

The one and only question I ask when I get to see a new watch that was conceived for traveling is: Can I, when traveling through timezones with changing zone-times, adjust my local time without loosing the correct indicated minutes and seconds? In case of the new Vacheron Constantin Overseas Dual Time you can. The watch will independently indicate you your home-time and the date is of course linked to the local time.

Pre-SIHH 2018: 25th anniversary of the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore

 

After the introduction of the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore in 1993, more than 120 references of the 42 mm watch have been launched in various materials such as stainless steel, titanium, gold and platinum.

42 mm! At the time being this was a real huge timepiece. It even looked enormous on the wrist.

Of course today we know, that the Royal Oak Offshore was a trendsetter ...
