Jacob & Co has built a horological monument to crypto in the form of the 25-piece limited edition Astronomia Solar Bitcoin.
Basing the watch around Jacob & Co.’s most diminutive Astronomia movement, the JCAM19, allows for a comparatively slight 44mm case diameter, aided by the shrinking effect of a full black DLC coating of its titaniumframe.
Today, Jacob & Co. and Bugatti unveiled their latest creation: the Bugatti Chiron Tourbillon. After spending nearly a year thoroughly developing a timepiece that honors the legendary Chiron hyper sports and reproduces the sensation of the renowned Bugatti 16-cylinder engine.
Ulysse Nardin has always been a brand that nurtured its creative side. In order to give itself extensive freedom to express itself, it also has to be technologically very advanced. The two combined have resulted in some of the most extraordinary timepieces, of which the Blast Free Wheel is one. It takes mechanical watchmaking to new heights by presenting it completely different from what we are used to.
Inventive watchmaker URWERK has developed another new method of displaying the time with its latest model, the UR-112 AGGREGAT.
The new model from the inventive Swiss watchmaker uses a series of rotating aluminum prisms for jumping hours on the left hand side of the display and minutes on the right.
Collective Horology has brought together URWERK and New York’s Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum to create a seriously limited watch inspired by the Space Shuttle Enterprise.
Audemars Piguet (AP) and Marvel have revealed the first product of their new partnership, the Royal Oak Concept “Black Panther” Flying Tourbillon. The reveal doubles as the launch of a partnership that will produce more Marvel-inspired luxe timepieces in the future.
For the Swiss watchmaking industry, 2020 was not a great year. It was actually bad for everyone, obviously, but the hard times that fell on many as the coronavirus pandemic shut down entire industries inevitably put a dent in the luxury goods market in general. One casualty was the offbeat Romain Jerome (RJ) studio, famous for their sophisticated luxury mechanical timepieces often created with superhero tie-ins, like Spider-Man.
