Magazine GMT Back to watchmaking in 2020

In addition to being the most comprehensive issue on Geneva Watch Days available in print, this issue offers an in-depth analysis of new products from Breguet, Eberhard & Co., Longines, Panerai, TAG Heuer and Vacheron Constantin.

WorldTempus is offering its readers the current issue of GMT magazine, published on the occasion of the Geneva Watch Days, of which both GMT and WorldTempus were official media partners. Discover over forty new timepieces, as well as an exclusive interview with the CEO of A. Lange & Söhne, Wilhelm Schmid, where he explains how “the Odysseus family is growing” and why “the new Lange 1 Time Zone is for people who are open-minded and connected to the world.” In lifestyle, our photographer Joy Corthésy shot half a dozen watches in the colourful textiles with the help of the Swiss department store Bongénie. Other highlights of GMT magazine (available for download at the end of this article) include the following articles written by our team of experts.

On the cover: Breguet’s essence, in style

The Classique 7137 bears all the sophisticated design elements that are part of Breguet’s lasting legacy in watchmaking – the deep “Breguet” blue, the familiar hollow-tipped hours and minutes hands, the fluted caseband and curved lugs, as well as the traditional guilloché patterns which the maison likes to refer to as “hand-engraved on a rose engine”.

Eberhard & Co. Scafograph: the little-known deep-sea gem

Although still mostly known to insiders, it is nonetheless a deep-sea icon much appreciated by collectors. Eberhard & Co.’s Scafograf has crossed the oceans and the depths, backed by 60 years of R&D in watertightness. Developed by a company founded in 1887, it is unashamedly displayed alongside the greatest diver’s models in watchmaking history. The story of a deep-sea epic driven by accuracy, rigorous discipline and authenticity.

The feats of legendary pilots and their Longines

The characteristics developed to assist the first aviators are now united in the new Longines Spirit collection: unfailing precision, a crown characteristic of pilot’s watches, highly legible numerals and luminescent hands for night flights. Equipped with a state-of-the-art movement housing a silicon balance-spring and certified by the COSC (Official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute), Spirit timepieces guarantee precision to chronometer specifications.

What’s in the name Carrera? 

Let’s take a moment to evoke a name that conjures up the sweet sound of a Porsche flat-six engine for all lovers of beautiful mechanics: Carrera. The famous Carrera Panamericana (Pan-Am) race roared across the roads of Mexico between 1950 and 1954 and left a lasting impression. Organized by the Mexican government, its reputation quickly spread beyond national borders, and it became a playground for the world’s best drivers and the biggest brands. Given its configuration, it set a sad record by becoming the most dangerous race on the planet, killing drivers, co-drivers and spectators alike.

Vacheron Contantin Overseas Tourbillon

As soon as the object of this test bench became known, the question arose regarding the legitimacy of a tourbillon in a sports watch collection. The name Overseas already offers an answer to this question, taking us back to the 18th century and the famous “Longitude Act” that drove watchmakers, and John Harrison in particular, to embark on an unprecedented quest for chronometry. At that time, maritime navigation required highly accurate time measuring instruments. On an intellectual level, the name Overseas therefore perfectly justifies the use of a tourbillon regulator.
