GMT Magazine - The Baselworld issue is out

GMT Magazine The Baselworld issue is out

With two pull-outs on Zenith and Les Ateliers de Baselworld, watch magazine GMT talks about what’s new and launches a dedicated app.

At Baselworld and the SIHH, the world’s most important watch fairs, watch brands launched their campaigns to win back hearts and minds. They proved to be more open, for the most part, but often slightly cautious; generally more approachable, but still focused on innovation – a theme to which GMT No. 51 devotes three special features (balance wheels, new materials and striking mechanisms) – and creativity, which has been a watchword of the Great Magazine of Timepieces’ editorial approach since 2000. Over the magazine’s eleven dozen pages, GMT’s 11-strong editorial team looks at the latest watchmaking trends. A further two dozen pages, in the form of two pull-out sections, focus on Jean-Claude Biver’s takeover at Zenith, and the most dynamic independent brands exhibiting in the new Les Ateliers de Baselworld area.

The many faces of fine watchmaking
The first green shoots of spring in the watchmaking landscape are reflected in the vigour and diversity of GMT’s articles, which take in the big groups as well as the more modestly sized but fiercely talented brands. Highlights of this issue include a feature on Breguet’s Classique 7147, a timeless classic, which we have chosen for our cover photo.  In an exclusive interview, Albert Bensoussan, CEO of Kering Watches & Jewelry, notes that “In times of uncertainty it is crucial for brands to focus their actions on preparing for the future.” Technical enthusiasts will enjoy the test carried out by our in-house watchmaker on the Patek Philippe World Time 5230, and the more adventurous souls among them will certainly learn something new from our special feature on the Manufacture Contemporaine du Temps. The equally in-depth feature on the TAG Heuer “machine” will be of great interest to many of our readers. Venturing into more abstract territory, Zurich-based architect Axel Leuzinger draws a parallel between the lines of the MasterGraff Structural Skeleton Tourbillon and those of the MuCEM in Marseille. And, just two months before the start of the America’s Cup by Louis Vuitton, we reveal that, for the first time, every single team is sponsored by a watch brand!

GMT & Worldtempus.com app
GMT and its online sister publication Worldtempus.com, the digital influencer of reference for luxury watches, have pooled their expertise to provide daily high-quality, informative content. Their app was designed by US startup Volleto, already an active presence in the luxury world in general, and in the watch world in particular. The GMT & WT app will give watch lovers access to what is probably the world’s richest source of freely available content, direct to their pockets, as well as giving them the opportunity to select just the brands and categories that interest them.
