Blancpain presents the new X Fathoms Dive Watch

The Watch of all Superlatives




Blancpain revealed its latest diving watch in the context of a spectacular event taking place in the largest aquarium in the world, the Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo in the Dubai Mall. The X Fathoms revisits the characteristics of its iconic 1953 ancestor, and combines them with a mechanical depth gauge to create the most high-performance mechanical diving watch ever produced.

With a depth measure up to 90 meters and maximum depth reached memory, the X Fathoms concept watch abounds in world firsts. Its movement, reference 9918B, is based on the Manufacture-made Calibre 1315, which has already proved its worth by successfully powering several models in the Fifty Fathoms collection.

The impressive Blancpain X Fathoms comes presented on a high-tech rubber strap and with only sketchy details and specifications available so far. We do know it’s massively big, with a 55.65 mm diameter made of satin-brushed titanium featuring a helium decompression valve for saturation diving and the unidirectional rotating bezel.

Presented in the largest aquarium in the world, the individual calibration of each X Fathoms guaranties maximal precision of depth indications. To offer optimal legibility a matt black background dial colour was chosen to enhance contrast with the three-colour luminescence hands and hour markers, making it easy to distinguish indications underwater.

The PRIX Montblanc is endowed with 10,000 EUR and the Montblanc Donation Pen Arturo Toscanini. This remarkable fountain pen edition honours outstanding personalities in the world of classical music and, at the same time, serves to promote new cultural and artistic projects, thanks to the donation made with each purchase.

Montblanc has been honouring young  emerging classical instrumentalists since 2006. This yearsPRIX Montblanc winner,Sergey Khachatryan, was born in Armenia and has already won First Prize in the VIII International Jean Sibelius competition in Helsinki in 2000, becoming the youngest winner ever in the history of the competition. In 2005 he claimed the First Prize at the Queen Elisabeth Competition in Brussels.

Montblanc has its roots in writing culture and therefore sees a particular obligation to its own cultural commitment. One of the multi-faceted projects initiated by Montblanc is the Philharmonia of the Nations, founded in 1995 and based on an idea that Leonard Bernstein and Lord Yehudi Menuhin once had and inspired by the credo “Let?s make music as friends”. On the ceremony previous to the award presentation, there will be a gala concert with the Philharmonia of the Nations under the musical direction of Prof. Justus Frantz.

Bulgari’s latest addition to the Serpenti Collection

The Serpenti Haute Joaillerie



Bulgari Serpenti


The featured timepieces of the day will go to the three stunning new variations of Bulgari’s iconic Serpenti collection. Paying tribute to the snake-like design of the collection and completely paved in gem stones,  these versions are a true expression of Haute Joaillerie.

Predominantly white and green for the white gold version with diamond and emeralds; slightly more colourful in shades of white, green and mauve for the diamond, emerald & amethyst model, also on white gold; and resolutely multi-coloured for the combination of diamonds, amethysts and pink sapphires on rose gold, the Serpenti Haute Joaillerie is a collection literally dripping with gems of outstanding purity.

The number of stones varies from 763 to 1,009, depending on the version. They are delicately set over the entire underlying structure in white or rose gold. Evoking the scales of a serpent, this sparkling creation is fully paved without diminishing the flowing feel of the watch on the wrist.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Boutique opening in St. Petersburg

Reverso à Eclipses homage to Kazimir Malevich




Jaeger-LeCoultre inaugurated a brand new Jaeger-LeCoultre Boutique in the very heart of St. Petersburg at Bolshaya Konyushennaya Street. To celebrate the occasion Jaeger-LeCoultre presented a limited edition Reverso designed as homage to famous Russian painter Kazimir Malevich.

On the 80th year anniversary of the iconic Reverso watch, the Reverso à Eclipses homage to Kazimir Malevich was created with the assistance of the State Russian Museum of St. Petersburg as a limited edition of 5 pieces. This reversible watch in pink gold case equipped with in-house Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 849 revives one of the rarest fine art traditions, the painting on enamel, which demands special virtuosity and patience.

Kazimir Severinovich Malevich (1878 - 1935) was a painter famous for his works in genres of avantgarde, impressionism, futurism, and cubism. In the spring of 1915 he pioneered abstract geometric art, which was soon known as “suprematism”. This limited edition of the Reverso, of only five pieces made, hides a refined miniature work of art – the painting “Peasant Woman” by Kazimir Malevich, which can be enjoyed opening of the shutters of the dial.

As the brand keep growing in Russian,  Wolfgang Braun, Jaeger-LeCoultre Director in Russia and CIS countries affirms his confidence on the success of the Boutique in St Petersburg turning into real club of experts and connoisseurs of the subtle art of watchmaking who live in the Russia’s Northern capital.

Third Edition of the Geneva Time Exhibition

The Art of Making Time





With an impressive list of first-time exhibitors include brands like deLaCour, Frederique Constant, Jordi Swiss Icon, Milus, and RSW, the third edition of the Geneva Time Exhibition will take place at the Espace Hippomene in Geneve from the  January 15th to January 20th.

The Geneva Time Exhibition, founded by fair organizers founded by Florence Noël and Dominique Franchino. It is the Fair to visit to discover the latest in Haute Horlogerie: cutting-edge designs of bold, exclusive, top-quality watches as it offers a new approach to the luxury sector, giving top watchmaking brands the opportunity to meet their clients in an exclusive setting supported by extensive international PR.

Exhibiting since GTE’s first edition, the famous brand of luxury watches Alain Silberstein renews its participation to GTE 2012. So does Heritage Watch Manufactory, which had received last year a special mention from the GTE Superwatch Award’s Jury. GTE’s third edition will also welcome two new exhibitors who will definitely bring audacity and creativity to the exhibition:  Evilard Watch, a "young" dynamic brand which was created in 1948, and Dietrich Watches, a new brand created by the multi-talented designer Emmanuel Dietrich.

“The Avenue” will be the place dedicated to watch manufactures exhibiting for the first time in Geneva. And adjacent to The Avenue, the GTE "Time Square" will swarm, as the famous New York district, with dynamic luxury watch brands that GTE’s fans follow with passion (i.e. Ateliers Louis Moinet, Cyrus Watches or Louis Erard Watches). Visitors may also be seduced by new promising "Watch Concepts", which could become tomorrow’s iconic watches.
