“The aim is to capture the spirit of Louis Moinet himself (1768-1853) and embody it in an urban, modernistic rendition. Simply put, it’s a union of the visionary talent of the inventor of the chronograph and high frequency with a contemporary work of architecture. Metropolis is a city watch”, explains Jean-Marie Schaller, CEO Ateliers Louis Moinet. “Its ethos combines ergonomics with design, and function with style. We’ve broken free of neoclassical conventions and adopted a committed, contemporary approach that’s unlike anything we’ve ever done before”. The Metropolis features three different sets of openwork – on the hour markers, on the dial, and on the lugs and vertical bridges – giving the timepiece a uniquely three-dimensional aspect. The first openwork feature is on the Roman numeral hour markers, themselves a first for a Louis Moinet timepiece. The manufacture has therefore taken extra special care with them in order to ensure a completely new, ultra-modern res

The Third Edition of the Vagabondage Trilogy F.P. Journe presents the third and last edition of the Vagabondage Series, “Vagabondage III”, produced in a limited series of 69 pieces in Platinum and 68 pieces in 18K red Gold. F.P. Journe is the only Manufacture to design and produce a specific calibre for a series limited to only 137 pieces. Let’s recall the events leading up to the creation of the Vagabondage, which is the quintessence of anti-marketing. In 2004, François-Paul Journe designed 3 unprecedented watches with a flat Tortue case (patented model), a digital time display and a dial without signature, for the 30th anniversary of Antiquorum. Those 3 watches, one in white Gold, one in yellow Gold, and one in rose Gold, with brass movements, were sold at a charity auction for the benefit of the ICM, research institute for brain and spinal cord diseases (www.icm-institute.org). The watches captured the interest of the public, and sold for three times the estimate. VI – Digit

Richard Mille congratulates Sébastien Buemi on his victory in the Buenos Aires ePrix Last weekend Renault e.Dams of which Richard Mille is the watchmaking partner, entered its two drivers Nicolas Prost and Sébastien Buemi for the Buenos Aires ePrix in the streets of the Argentinean capital. The team’s Swiss driver continued his flawless performance by scoring his third victory on the bounce in the FIA Formula E Championship, and the first in the 2017 season as Buenos Aires hosted the opening round. Buemi continues to impress. He was third on the grid and fought his way into the lead before the round of pit stops. He went on to take the chequered flag in first place in front of French driver Jean-Eric Vergne and Lucas di Grassi from Brazil on the 2,48-km Puerto Madero circuit on which the cars ran in an anti-clockwise direction. “I’ve always been very quick in Buenos Aires, but it’s the first time I managed to transform my speed into a victory. It’s the concrete result of a


The Academia Out of Time model scintillates with gold in celebration of 2017. After rendering this iconic timepiece in elegant black, blue and white shades of lacquer, the DeWitt Manufacture now presents the Academia Out of Time with its dial lacquered in a chocolate colour tone highlighted by specks of gold. The Maison has built up the skills and know-how to manufacture our extremely complex dials in- house, perpetuating and advancing traditional artistic crafts, guilloché-work, enamelling and lacquering so all our dials can be entirely crafted by hand. The mastermind behind this patented invention, Jérôme de Witt, gives us a highly personal interpretation of time with a combination of bold design and a grand watch complication. Housed in a round 42.5 mm diameter case, the Academia Out of Time watch is driven by an automatic DeWitt calibre indicating the hours, minutes and seconds, and entirely developed, produced and assembled by hand by our master watchmakers at the Mey


Totally black and totally matt, TAG Heuer is unveiling its very first proprietary men’s chronograph made entirely from ceramic, including the bracelet.

Presented for the first time two years ago at Baselworld, the Carrera HEUER-01 is THE signature Chrono model from the TAG Heuer manufacture. In 2015, the watch formed the cornerstone of a burgeoning new collection, with a new design, a new HEUER-01 in-house calibre, and a new modular case design with 12 different elements enabling multiple combinations of materials and colours.

For this 2017 version, the sleek chronograph — the brand’s current best-seller — has been entirely produced using matt black ceramic. The case, bezel, lugs and case middle (all the parts exposed to friction) are made from black ceramic. This material offers unparalleled scratch-resistance. It presents a micro-blasted finish for a flawless deep black design.
