Newsletter Win a Corum AC-ONE 45 Squelette watch worth 11,200 Swiss francs

A great competition, exciting new launches and a dip into the results of our GPHG readers’ poll at the half-way stage.

A new month means a new competition on WorldTempus and this month’s is a great one, with the beautifully open-worked AC-ONE 45 Squelette model from Corum beckoning to those who can answer correctly the three questions about the brand.

After the first couple of weeks of our readers’ poll on the watches selected for this year’s Geneva Watchmaking Grand Prix (GPHG), a look at the statistics revealed that the ladies’ categories were particularly popular at the half-way stage.

“We move effortlessly from the specifics of new products to the generalities of the watch industry.”

Paul O'Neil

For Carlo Lamprecht, President of the GPHG Foundation, it was important to start the exhibition of the GPHG finalists in India, a growing market with enormous potential for the watch industry. Our correspondent Anita Khatri reported on the event, which was also attended by the Chairman of the Jury (and another WorldTempus contributor), Aurel Bacs. His article last week discussed the problem of putting a value on the Patek Philippe Henry Graves Supercomplication, which is up for auction in November.

Complications were also in vogue at the second edition of the Watches & Wonders exhibition in Hong Kong, which started last week. Roger Dubuis presented a tourbillon minute repeater in its Hommage collection and Vacheron Constantin wowed our readers with its new “Maître Cabinotier Astronomica” – one of the most popular articles on the site last week.

This week we shift from the specifics of new products to the generalities of the watch industry, taking a look at the many faces of a chronograph, the different types of luminescent materials used in watches and the fascinating new fluid technology behind the watches of HYT.
