Just after they received the best Calendar Watch Prize at GPHG2017 for the QP à Équation, I visited the Greubel Forsey manufacture in La Chaux-de-Fonds.
Last week I visited Glashütte Original in their hometown. In the previous article we talked about how the watch industry and fine-mechanical engineering brought the people of the Saxon valley back from poverty to world-wide recognition. In this one, we selected a few timepieces.
As a curious guest of Glashütte Original I discovered the creative village the company calls home and their manufacture.
The 7th edition of the Only Watch charity auction was held on 11 November in Geneva at the Four Seasons Hotel des Bergues, on the occasion of the watch auction week when Christie’s offered the 50 lots to bidders.
The Lucerne boutique of Les Ambassadeurs organised an exclusive customer event for Zenith timepieces. We saw the first birds called Zenith Defy Lab as well as this year’s other newcomer the El Primero Defy 21.
This autumn we happened to be in Tuscany and besides the Medicis and Ferragamos there was no doubt that we would squeeze in the Mazzuolis. We wanted to feel the heat of the flames their timepieces evoke as close as possible.
Phillips Geneva Watch Auction: SIX is 11-12 November in Geneva. The two days will include three sales events: two sessions and an exceptional Heuer chronograph sale from the Crosthwaite & Gavin Collection.
Albertina opened an exhibition this autumn about Raphael with around 130 drawings and 17 paintings it covers the artist’s important projects. We visited it at the social media conference.
