Time Æon is an initiative aiming to save the soon extinct traditional watchmaking know-how that once shaped timepieces. At the SIHH 2019 we spoke with David Bernard, director of the Time Æon Foundation about their past and future projects.
To the SIHH, Chronométrie Ferdinand Berthoud brought ‘Oeuvre d’Or’ limited editions of the FB 1 with patinated gold dial. Look at this beauty!
Ferdinand Berthoud came out with the Chronomètre FB 1R earlier this year, which builds upon the beautiful movement and the octagonal case of the initial FB1. However, the dial gave a completely different flavour to the piece. In Basel, the manufacture presented a special bronze edition, which become one of the highlights of this year to me.
Karl-Friedrich Scheufele and his team at Ferdinand Berthoud revealed their new model during the SIHH 2018, which radiates an even more self-conscious but elegantly reserved individuality than its predecessor. We saw the Chronomètre FB 1R.6-1 in Geneva.
Ferdinand Berthoud timepieces sailed into the boutiques of Les Ambassadeurs and we met them in the port of Espace Connaisseur.
