On the last day of SIHH 2018 in Geneva, Elizabeth and Ian met with Marc André Deschoux of Watches TV to discuss what we had seen during the second part of the fair.
La Montre Hermès moved from Baselworld to Geneva for the 2018 SIHH and picked the perfect theme for its debut there: “Let’s Play.” The brand’s fun-filled booth and watches were a welcome contrast to the often overly serious business side of the fair. Check them out right here!
The unabashed star of Greubel Forsey’s 2018 SIHH presentations was the GMT Earth, which enables a simultaneous view of three separate time zones and features an enchanting three-dimensional titanium globe showing universal time (both summer and winter) on the back. And the gorgeous new Différentiel d’Égalité is equally as technical. Check out these new watches from SIHH 2018 right here.
To honor Walter Lange’s life and legacy, A. Lange & Söhne organized a really organic live round table conversation during the 2018 SIHH to remember the great man that included our own Elizabeth Doerr and GaryG. Watch the video here!
Philippe Dufour, watchmaker, legend, and frank opinionator, was asked by the Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie (FHH) to choose his top five watches of the 2018 SIHH. While some of his choices may seem unusual, they absolutely resonated with me!
Halfway through the 2018 SIHH, Elizabeth and Ian met with Marc André Deschoux of the Watches TV to discuss what we had seen so far.

True solar time is measured by the position of the sun and can run up to sixteen minutes ahead of and fourteen minutes behind the time shown on our clocks and watches. Our friends at The Watches TV spent a day with Philippe Dufour to have a look at this phenomenon in a personal way.
Our friends at The Watches TV visited Agenhor and have published a very interesting video with a behind-the-scenes visit at the Meyrin (Geneva) workshop. Enjoy the video!
If you love fine timepieces and A. Lange and Söhne, do yourself a favor and take the next 22 minutes to see what might not have been if it weren‘t for the passion and determination of Walter Lange, Günter Blümlein, and the city of Glashütte featured in the film “A. Lange & Söhne: A Legend Comes Home.”
Jaquet Droz’s history is long, but this gorgeous film is thankfully short – and visually stunning. It begins with a depiction of Pierre Jaquet-Droz’s historical feats, which really took off with the famous automata, and follows with beautiful images of the brand’s modern timepieces as well as an artistic look into the métiers d’art workshop.
