Newsletter From golden hand to golden sands

The winning watches from the GPHG head off to the Dubai Watch Week, followed by our editor-in-chief.

With the ultra-traditional Ferdinand Berthoud FB1 chronometer scooping the most prestigious award in watchmaking last week, and the first SIHH preview models all being inspired by historical models that are up to 80 years old, classically-themed watches clearly seem to be the trend – and possibly the recipe for success – in these straitened times.

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

Like the winning watches from this year’s Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève, I will be at Dubai Watch Week this week. The event is only on its second edition, but it has already firmly established itself as a hub for information exchange and education. The emphasis is on the cultural element, with a dense schedule of creative workshops and panel discussions. I will be speaking at two of these and moderating one of them. Find out more in my preview article.

Tomorrow we reproduce on WorldTempus, with the kind permission of Breguet, the first in a series of articles that were originally published in Breguet’s Quai de l’Horloge magazine. Appropriately for this first, the article is also about a first: the first-ever wristwatch, no less. In the next couple of days we also expect some exciting information about another historic first in watchmaking.

Later on this week, David Chokron examines the split-seconds chronograph complication with his expert technical eye and Michèle Brunner, back from a busman’s holiday in Valencia, will publish her interview with Cvstos ambassador Loris Baz.
