The short documentary film ‘Time Piece’ features two of the world’s best living watchmakers, Philippe Dufour and Vianney Halter. It provides insight into what makes the watches by these masters so special.
German watchmaking was well represented at Baselworld 2018, so without further ado let’s have a look at three Saxon manufactures with a variety of interesting new products introduced at the world’s largest watch fair in these The Watches TV videos
Armin Strom is one of the smallest complete watch manufactures in Switzerland and for nearly 10 years has introduced about one new movement per year, including a tourbillon in 2012 and the most recent highlight, the Mirrored Force Resonance, a true technical tour de force. Take a video tour through the factory right here.
This visually stunning video is a treat whether you like watches or not. And there’s also a bonus video of the recently released Tropical Bird Repeater.
The Watches TV went to Watch Time New York for the first time in November 2017. And while there had the opportunity to talk to Roland Murphy of RGM and discover this luxurious American brand based in Pennsylvania.
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!
