WorldTempus is offering its readers the current issue of GMT magazine, published on the occasion of the Geneva Watch Days, of which both GMT and WorldTempus were official media partners. Discover over forty new timepieces, as well as an exclusive interview with the CEO of A.
A direct descendant of Auguste Golay, founder of the Golay-Leresche company in Geneva in 1837, Christophe Golay began his career in pharmaceutical research. Carried by a longstanding family watchmaking tradition, in 2001 he turned to watchmaking by founding Golay Spierer, a company whose speciality is unique and tailor-made pieces.
On the occasion of GMT Magazine’s 20th anniversary (and WorldTempus’s upcoming 20th anniversary in 2021), we have embarked on the ambitious project of summarising the last 20 years in watchmaking in The Millennium Watch Book, a big, beautifully laid out coffee table book.
Choice. A choice must be made. But why, oh why should it be so hard? If I should name one brand that constantly outdoes itself, it's indeed Richard Mille. Yet, focusing on their latest creations to nominate their most interesting ones would be tantamount to myopia.

Designed by Henri d’Origny in 1978, the Arceau watch displays an understated yet distinctive nature. Its timeless silhouette takes the form of a round case with stirrup-like asymmetrical lugs. A one-of-a-kind model in rose or white gold, the Arceau Lift tourbillon répétition minutes features a white or Abyss blue-lacquered dial revealing part of its mechanism.
By the time you read this, the final selection of watches for the 2020 edition of the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève (GPHG) will have been confirmed.
From late May until the beginning of June, the GPHG Academy was able to nominate the watches that they felt were deserving of recognition in the various categories of the competition.
Such watches are few and far between. Instantly recognizable, completely unique, profoundly revealing of a brand’s identity, abilities and values, such is De Bethune’s DB28. The line has been carrying a seemingly never-ending series of mechanical innovations.
A play on nuances, lights and shade, housed in a dial reminiscent of the romantic atmosphere of Roman sunsets. A spectacle of nature that—like Hublot’s Art of Fusion— combines different yet complementary elements.
