New models from Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control line

Three great classics in the watchmaking avantgarde

At the SIHH 2012, the Manufacture Jaeger-LeCoultre presented three new timepieces in its Master Control line, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary, the Master Control, Master Ultra Thin Réserve de Marche and Master Ultra Thin Tourbillon.

Twenty years after its presentation and building on unflagging success, the Master Control reasserts its minimalist credo in a refined new interpretation. It houses Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 899, which incorporates the latest developments to emerge from the company laboratories in the fields of resistance and robustness.

The Ultra Thin models enrich the legendary reliability and minimalist aesthetic of the Master line with a new feat: the extreme slenderness of its technical execution. In its 39 mm-diameter case, the Master Ultra Thin Réserve de Marche expresses a horological philosophy based on reducing functions and their representation to absolute essentials.

Pre Baseworld 2012 from Bulgari The Bulgari Serpenti Watch 2012

Pre Baseworld 2012 from Bulgari

At the Baselworld 2012, Bulgari will be presenting the new Serpenti watches that will perpetuate the Bulgari legend with unrivalled intensity. 

Over the years, Bulgari has been able to create a number of subtle and delicate variations in the crafting of the Serpenti bracelet, combining a precious metal structure with precious stones and enamelling, while naturally preserving the innate suppleness and flexibility of this jewellery masterpiece. 

In this 2012, the Serpenti collection is a direct heir to the historical legacy of the Brand. Inspired by the Bulgari heritage collection and reinterpreted in an eminently contemporary manner, this sophisticated and charismatic new jewellery creation coils around the wrist with precious, flowing ease.

Forming a natural extension of the bracelet, the case shaped like a snake's head houses a Swiss quartz movement specifically personalised for Bulgari, and is set on either side with 6 brilliant-cut diamonds (0.6 cts) framing the black sapphire or white mother-of-pearl dial (depending on the version) graced with 12 diamond-set hour-markers.

Technical details: 

Movement: Swiss quartz movement personalised for Bulgari, Calibre B031

Functions: Hours, minutes

Bracelet: Single or double wrap-around coils in 18-carat pink gold; 18-carat pink gold scales with jet-black or eggshell enamelling

Case: Curved and polished 18-carat pink gold case, set with 6 brilliant-cut diamonds (0.6 cts)

Dial: White mother-of-pearl or black sapphire dial 

Carats: Between 2.79 cts (245 diamonds) and 4.12 cts (385 diamonds)

A retrograde small seconds for the Villeret collection

Blancpain will be unveiling a new model to the Villeret collection at the Baselworld 2012, a retrograde small seconds featuring, for the first time in this collection, a flinque lacquered dial. 

Blancpain adopts a subtly balanced approach by introducing this original touch while preserving the pure lines of its most classic collection.

This new self-winding movement powers hour and minute hands as well as an equally central serpentine date pointer, while the retrograde seconds appear at 6 o’clock.

The Royal Oak Quartz 33 mm watch

Representing a return to roots, meaning to the pure aesthetic of the collection, Audemars Piguet is launching a dainty 33mm-diameter-model to be added to its classic Royal Oak collection. 

The subtle interplay of alternating satin-brushed and polished surfaces characterising the first Royal Oak watches accentuate the clear-cut lines of this 33 mm model; while the eight hexagonal screws on the octagonal bezel are in white gold, just as they were on the original watch in 1972.

The silver-toned dial of this Royal Oak bears a “Grande Tapisserie” pattern that now becomes a signature for all Royal Oak Selfwinding and Quartz models. This motif is crafted by Audemars Piguet using historical machines according to the ramolayé or pounced ornament technique.

Reference: 67651ST.ZZ.1261ST.01

Movement: Quartz Calibre 2713, 7 jewels

Functions: Hours, minutes, date

Case: Stainless steel case with Diamond-set bezel
