Whether it be on the water or in the factory, the idea is the same: shed excess weight and replace heavy materials with ultra-light ones. That’s exactly what the crew on the maxi trimaran Spindrift 2, with Dona Bertarelli at the helm, is doing: designed to be manoeuvred by 12 crew members, the ship is setting off on a solo voyage on the Route du Rhum this year.
Finally! Some 12 years after joining forces with Patek Philippe and the Swatch Group for initial studies at the Swiss Centre for Electronics and Microtechnology in Neuchâtel, Rolex has introduced silicon into one of its movements! Ladies are the first to experience Rolex’s newest feature: the diamond set 34mm Oyster Perpetual Datejust Pearlmaster has inherited the 2236 calibre fitted with the new silicon Syloxi spring.
The Gouten/Guten family holding certainly hasn’t wasted any time. Barely five months after taking over Manufacture Royale, Gérard Gouten, Marc Guten, David Gouten and Alexis Gouten, united under GTN Luxury Holding, have designed the first piece from the new collection.
Omega has really pushed the boat out with the new Seamaster 300: this piece features all the latest technological developments! In terms of design, the steel version has a polished black ceramic bezel and a Liquidmetal® diving scale whilst the luxury versions feature Sedna™ gold, a patented gold, copper and palladium alloy designed to guarantee the rose gold’s long-term endurance.
“The long-awaited second coming!” These words heralded the arrival of Patek Philippe’s new model at Baselworld. First launched in 2006 in platinum then rose gold, the brand’s first self-winding chronograph is now available in stainless steel.
