Newsletter The new Opus 14 and the Oscars of watchmaking

WorldTempus heads off to the unlikely location of Baden-Baden to discover the new Harry Winston Opus 14 tomorrow. You can see it on our homepage on Wednesday and then watch the GPHG awards ceremony live on Thursday evening.

The 2015 edition of the SIAR in Mexico last week further cemented the regional exhibition’s excellent reputation among brands, visitors and the watchmaking press. There were some new exhibitors, a healthy mix of big names and innovative independent brands and an impressive number of CEOs who were happy to talk to WorldTempus in the relaxed ambiance of this luxury exhibition. Read all about it over the next couple of weeks. At the same time, the first-ever Dubai Watch Week was held by local retailer Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons in collaboration with the GPHG and the Dubai Ministry of Culture, who brought together and exceptional panel of independent watch brands for a week-long exhibition with a human and educational vocation. WorldTempus presented the artistic, commercial and human dimensions.

“Jean-Claude Biver is a genius of the industry who rightly merits a biography”

Paul O'Neil

In the meantime, however, we have two huge watch-related events to cover this week: The first is the much-anticipated launch of the Harry Winston Opus 14. In the fifth and final part of my series of articles reviewing the Opus series, I consider what Harry Winston might have in store for us. This remains pure personal speculation, of course, since the new model has been kept so tightly under wraps that there is not even the slightest hint of what it might be. All will be revealed in full on our homepage on Wednesday right after the launch, with a more in-depth follow-up article to come once I have had time to see the latest Opus up close.

On the very next day we have one of the highlights in our annual calendar: The Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève. You can watch the ceremony live on our homepage from 6:00 pm (local time) and be among the first to see the results. We will publish the full list of finalists as soon as they are announced and bring you live updates on our social media channels. If you have been following us since the candidate watches were announced, you know that we have the GPHG covered. Our series of round tables, for example, concludes today with our in-house team’s thoughts on which watch should or might win the coveted Aiguille d’Or ?
