SIHH 2017 The editorial team's personal favourites (3)

Every day of the SIHH 2017 our editorial team bring you their personal favourites among the many new watches.The editorial team's personal favourites.

Paul O'Neil - A. Lange & Söhne Lange 31

A. Lange & Söhne’s Tourbograph Perpetual “Pour le Mérite” has probably been stealing all the limelight, but my preference from the venerable Glashütte manufactory is the much more understated Lange 31 in white gold with the grey dial. The one-month power reserve puts it at the upper end of the spectrum and yet it has been in the collection for nearly a decade. Packing 744 hours of power reserve into a watch is already a technical masterstroke and requires two mainspring barrels, each with a 185 centimetre long spring. But what sets the Lange 31 apart is its constant-force mechanism which ensures that its massive amount of torque unfolds at a regular pace, ensuring optimum amplitude from the balance wheel from day 1 to day 33.

Camille Gendre - Girard-Perregaux, Laureato, 38 mm rose gold
The year 2017 marks the return of the Laureato collection. There are four different case sizes, quartz and self-winding automatic movement, cases in steel, gold, steel/gold and titanium and the collection has never been as extensive or as varied. With 30 references, this collection is designed to appeal to a broad range of customers. The Laureato is one of my favourites watches of the entire week. My final choice is without any doubt the 38mm model in rose gold, with the in-house self-winding Girard-Perregaux movement. I love the architectural side to this piece and its versatility.

Michèle Brunner - Roger Dubuis, Excalibur Spider Pirelli Double Flying Tourbillon

In 2017 a new partnership has been formed between Roger Dubuis and Pirelli, which is heavily involved in motorsport, in particular with its  P Zero tyres. But how could the brand represent this new partnership in a timepiece? The answer comes with the Excalibur Spider Pirelli Double Flying Tourbillon (but also in the Excalibur Spider Pirelli Automatic Skeleton) unveiled at the SIHH: its strap is made of Grand Prix-winning Pirelli tyres and bears a motif resembling that of a used Formula 1 tyre. But fans of mechanical things in general will be delighted to find inside this 47mm diameter watch in black DLC titanium with its blue accents a manually-wound movement with two tourbillons. All in the typical architecutre of the Excalibur Spider case. It's a beautiful and powerful machine.
