Newsletter From the electronics of the smart watch to mechanical light

We start the week with a review of the TAG Heuer Connected smart watch before moving on to examine new ways of illuminating wrist watches, in between looking at new jewellery models and interviewing Bulgari’s CEO Jean-Christophe Babin.

After recovering from the momentous news of the discovery of gravitational waves, we found ourselves in the middle of awards season, with the world’s celebrities decked out in watches and jewellery from a number of WorldTempus partner brands as they took to the stage to receive their awards. Following the Grammy Awards and the BAFTAs last week, the BRIT awards this week has a much more tangible horological component thanks to the association of Raymond Weil, which has produced a watch with a typically British dial especially for the occasion.

« Ce mois-ci, gagnez une montre Eterna pour dames »

Today we publish our first hands-on review of the TAG Heuer Connected smart watch, together with a look at a special series of photographs commissioned by the brand to show off the people behind the brand’s watches rather than the watches themselves.

Later on this week, Nazanin Lankarani will preview the new Chaumet watches for ladies, while Isabelle Guignet takes a look at the latest offerings from Mouawad. For the gents, Olivier Müller looks back at ten years of the Hysek Abyss range, while your editor-in-chief examines two new technologies used in traditional mechanical watchmaking to illuminate dials without any need for a battery or other external power source. 

As Baselworld approaches, Jean-Christophe Babin, CEO of Bulgari, shares his views on the global economic situation and the impact not just of the Chinese economy, but the country’s economic policy, on the luxury industry. He gives a hint of what to expect from the brand at Basel and his strategy for developing Bulgari for the years to come.
