When Zenith launched its Defy Midnight collection at the start of 2020, a line that’s all about modern femininity and versatility, the brand decided to bring together visionary, independent and inspirational women from all over the world that live by Zenith’s “Time to Reach Your Star” philosophy.
“Sculpture is based on emptiness”. Should we perceive a visionary indication of Ulysse Nardin’s watchmaking creations in this line of thinking uttered by the Swiss artist Alberto Giacometti (1901-1966)? In any event, when we discover the brand’s Skeleton X, we’re left breathless by the work undertaken to flatter the architecture of the hand-wound UN-371 caliber.
With its XXL moon, the Perpetual Moon is ruled by Selene, the goddess of this celestial body. Arnold & Son presents a limited edition of 28 pieces featuring this distinctive complication, adorned with an extraordinary material rarely seen in watchmaking.
To complement the collection’s complex architecture and countless details, the Manufacture’s dial makers have covered the timepiece’s gold dial with a blend of crushed aventurine glass and “Grand Feu” enamel for an expressive touch of creativity.
Eagerly awaited by watchmaking enthusiasts as well as industry professionals every year, the Grand Prix d'Horlogerie de Genève (GPHG) is an ode to creativity that awards timepieces appointed by an esteemed jury across fourteen categories.
So many watch brands today understand the necessity of giving back. Whether the initiative is toward saving the planet, saving the animals or helping people in general, today’s society mandates that luxury brands take social responsibility.
Built in iconic 1970s style, the Girard-Perregaux Laureato embodied the elan and design flair of its era. Boldly geometric, with a minimally textured dial and brushed surfaces, the Laureato formed part of the first generation of high-end sports watches that accompanied the changing face of luxury.
