Hermès has a history of cooperating with talents across various professional fields. This time the Maison asked Californian born, Lausanne studied industrial designer Ini Archibong to create his interpretation of a Hermès women’s watch. The SIHH 2019 shed light onto the fruit of their collaboration and other novelties, such as a curious moon phase watch.
With the Art Piece Edition Historique Greubel Forsey closes the collection that explicitly proclaimed Greubel Forsey’s view of watchmaking being a form of art and self-expression. We admired the final edition and the surprisingly small Balancier Contemporain with its large balance wheel at the SIHH 2019.
SIHH gives us the chance to encounter many interesting minds working either on the creations and / or influencing the present and the future of a brand. In the magical forest of Jaeger-LeCoultre at the SIHH2019 we met with Mr Stéphane Belmont, Heritage & Rare Pieces Director at Jaeger-LeCoultre.
Richard Mille shuck up their last SIHH appearance with the mouth-watering Bonbon collection. We put our hands on probably the sweetest and most divisive collection at the Geneva show.
To the SIHH, Chronométrie Ferdinand Berthoud brought ‘Oeuvre d’Or’ limited editions of the FB 1 with patinated gold dial. Look at this beauty!
The creative duo of MB&F + L’Epée 1839 fished out their 10th co-creation since 2014, the Medusa. We admired the piece at the SIHH 2019.
Challenge, Own, Dare, Evolve – Audemars Piguet kicked off their largest product launch since the seventies at the SIHH 2019. Representing the last minute of the wait before the day of a new challenge, CODE 11.59 brings a formerly unseen shape and anticipated movements into the AP portfolio. We looked behind the collection.
Longing for the summer and the sparkle of the azure sea in cold Geneva? Head into the pop-up beach Piaget created at the SIHH 2019. The sand hid the novelties that the brand introduced this January.
At the SIHH 2019, Ulysse Nardin dedicated their appearance to Xtremity. In the shark tank we discovered the new Freak X, Skeleton X and an XXX themed art collection made in collaboration with Italian erotic illustrator, Milo Manara.
