When Brendan Cunningham learned of Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Sound Maker exhibition in New York, he quickly decided to attend and participate in the accompanying Atelier d’Antoine, a 1.5-hour workshop to discover why watches go “tick tock” and how time can be expressed. He shares his experiences here.
Sabine Zwettler dives back through time to have a closer look at five vintage-style diver’s watches. With their robustness and air of discovery and adventure, diver’s watches leave a striking impression on the wrist – whether on dry land or in the water.
Gérald Genta’s claim to eternal horological fame is closely connected to the rise of high-end stainless steel watches: he designed both the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak (1972) and the Patek Philippe Nautilus (1976).

Ahead of the ninth edition of the biennial Only Watch auction taking place on November 6, 2021 in Geneva, Elizabeth Doerr highlights all 53 of the unique watches going under the hammer.
To this day, when most people think about luxury watches they picture a wizened, white-haired man in a white lab coat bent over a workbench against the backdrop of snowy Alps busily filing away at watch parts.

What a diverse bunch of tourbillons in this Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève category: two of them are beautifully transparent, while one of them is combined with a chronograph. Yet another contains a constant-force device, while one example here can be flipped around. And, finally, the sixth is involved in a space war. Oh, to choose a winner!
The Maurice Lacroix Simon Nogueira x Aikon Urban Tribe adds even more spice to the Aikon collection with its cool engravings and amazing price/performance ratio. But Martin Green thinks you’ll just be wowed by its looks.
