Girard-Perregaux : Neo Tourbillon With Three Bridges Skeleton

Coups de coeur (1)

Neo Tourbillon With Three Bridges Skeleton © Girard-Perregaux

Stefano Macaluso, Product Development Director at Girard-Perregaux, has a degree in architecture and its shows in his interpretations of the brand’s iconic three bridges models as he successfully incorporates architectural touches to the bridges, inspired by some of the world’s most outstanding structures. If the new skeleton version of the Neo Tourbillon with Three Bridges brings to mind the Millau Viaduct, the Mohammed VI bridge in Rabat or the Oversteek Brug in Nijmegen, it’s not by accident. The beautifully sculpted bridges, the distinctive signature of the design, are brought out by the carefully considered skeletonisation of the movement, yet nevertheless keep a level of understatement with their tone-on-tone finish. - Paul O'Neil

A.Lange & Söhne : Triple Split

Coups de coeur (1)

Triple Split © A. Lange & Söhne

At last year’s SIHH the press presentation by A. Lange & Söhne was marked by the emotional announcement of the passing of Walter Lange. This year the brand unveiled a new 1815 model with a deadbeat seconds in tribute to Walter Lange. Alongside this model born from emotion comes one born from technology that is a world first. This triple split chronograph is the only timepiece capable of measuring aggregated and comparative times over a period of up to 12 hours. There is not enough space in this paragraph to list all the technical achievements of the hand-wound calibre L132.1 here. They are impressive, unsettling and difficult to understand. What you can easily see, however, is the aesthetic harmony of the Triple Split with its clear dial as a light and pure expression of its powerful motor. A signature trait of A. Lange & Söhne. - Michèle Brunner

HYT : H0 Gold

H0 Gold © HYT

With its case in 2N yellow gold and its ultra-modern design, the latest model in the H0 collection caught my eye. It is both striking and audacious! The luminous colour contrasts with the previous models in steel, with their grey and black tones, with the natural exception of the fluidic hours, hour markers and power reserve indicator. This new watch takes its inspiration from the world of archaeology and forges a new path for the brand, since it is the first time that HYT is using a gold case and the first time it is offering a leather bracelet on a H0. In my view the subtle mix of gold and black is a resounding success. - Cloé Mugny
