The Latin phrase “in memoriam” is often used in place of “in memory of.” And to my mind, people also use it to signify departed who may be gone but shouldn’t be forgotten. Every year people working in the watch industry pass away, and brands come and go. Elizabeth Doerr highlights a special few of those we lost in 2020.
The prevailing financial atmosphere may be pointing toward Spartan classicism in some areas of life, but fortunately for us the worlds of art and beauty – which include haute horlogerie – still express joyful color. Enjoy the bursts of vivid hue in these five time-telling rainbows we found at Baselworld 2016 from Kari Voutilainen, de Grisogono, Chopard, Ulysse Nardin, and Fabergé.
Fawaz Gruosi, founder and CEO of de Grisogono’s creations, has infused such strong DNA into his products that they cannot be confused for anything else but a product by de Grisogono.
From his remarkable insight ability, he introduced at Baselworld 2016 a smartwatch. A luxury smartwatch powered by Samsung technology . . . and decorated with plenty of black diamonds.
This week’s photo was taken during Baselworld 2016 and features a fairly blingy skull with (in my mind a least) a bit of attitude. What fun, funny, or sarcastic caption can you suggest for this image?
