Newsletter The art of hand finishing at Patek Philippe

From entry-level prices to hand-finished masterpieces, we cover all your watch needs this week on WorldTempus.

Until the end of the year we are running a special focus on hand finishing at Patek Philippe. To accompany the video that you can watch on our homepage throughout the month of December we are publishing a series of articles on how the deft touch of the craftsman and craftswoman sets individual components of a Patek Philippe watch apart. Read the first in this four-part series today as David Chokron takes a look at movement decoration.

“ Win a ladies’ watch by Eterna in our monthly competition ”

Tomorrow, Camille Gendre offers her impressions of the DeWitt Lady Pressy after wearing it for a couple of weeks. We also publish Brice Lechevalier’s interview with Daniel Montandon, founder of the newly launched watch brand Montandon & Co. On Wednesday, David Chokron is back with a look at some of the most attractively priced mechanical watches on the market – perfect gifts to get that special someone hooked on the fascinating world of horology. Later on in the week we will be revealing two more exclusive SIHH 2017 previews and I will conclude the week with my interview with Patrik Hoffmann on Ulysse Nardin’s recent change of identity and collection structure, its presence at the SIHH and his outlook for the future.

Don’t forget that our Advent Calendar competition is running until 24th December. The prizes on offer this week have been kindly donated by Romain Gauthier, Christophe Claret, A.
