GMT Magazine 148 pages for spring

GMT no. 56, issued in time for Baselworld 2018, spotlights the Breguet Marine 5517 and features interviews with the CEOs of Breitling, Frédérique Constant and Zenith.

Although Swiss watch magazine GMT celebrated its 18th anniversary during the SIHH 2018 (see video here), it came out on the first day of Baselworld, which was also the first day of spring. The mechanical and bejewelled creations that decorate its pages are a feast for the eyes of watch lovers. “With its past that is no more, its future which is yet to come and its eternal present, continually vanishing in memories and plans, time is the most prodigious of all machineries,” notes with wonder the French academician and writer Jean d’Ormesson in his book Comme un chant d’espérance (Like a song of hope). We share this vision, as does Carlo Lamprecht who, in 2012, while president of the Fondation du Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève, put forward an initiative to immortalise the art of measuring time by naming it the 12th Art. As an early supporter of these values, GMT continues to promote the 12th Art in the eponymous column of this springtime issue. There, you can find out the qualities watch design shares with the first six arts, as described by the German philosopher Hegel (read more about it here).

Through exclusive interviews (which we also share with WorldTempus readers), Georges Kern (Breitling), Peter Stas (Frédérique Constant) and Julien Tornare (Zenith) share their vision of the future. GMT showcases around forty new watches from as many different brands, and takes an in-depth look at some exceptional pieces including the Edouard Bovet Tourbillon and Ulysse Nardin’s Freak Vision. Ulysse Nardin fans will also appreciate the eight-page portfolio devoted to the brand. Another special feature showcases the spectacular creations of Rebellion, with a dazzling photo shoot setting eight fantastic watches against a backdrop of Caran d’Ache pigments.

For watch lovers looking for the latest information on current issues and trends in this highly creative sector, including design, techniques and vintage styling, our editorial team has prepared features on the growing trend for watch customisation, brands that have chosen to invest in their own movement design, and collectors’ watch auctions. Finally, a special 12-page insert on independent brands completes this fascinating issue, which is available from newsagents and here.
