[BaselWorld] DeWitt 2011 novelties.

The brand is seldom accounted for on the horologic forums, it simply doesn’t generate enough buzz
With its polished look, traditional appearance from a distance, discreet in terms of communication, nobody really talks about De Witt .

100% People, Christie's Auction 15/05/11.

After the post on the best watches in the Geneva Auction of 15/05/11:

Alex realized for use a live report directly from the auction.

The purpose of today's post is to share with all of you a bit of ambiance of the afternoon session of last Christie's auction! Enjoy!

[BaselWorld] Christophe Claret BlackJack.

Having worked for years as an inside-guy (especially with Gulio&Papi), Christophe Claret eventually launched his own factory.

Since 2009, two very complicated watches had been produced, with mixed success: the first had too much of a baroque style, whereas the second, in spite of a flawless design, was not exclusive enough.
This year, Claret factory presents its third watch. A state-of-the-art product.

Christie's auction of may 16. Sci-fi watches and bids.

This report was realized on May Friday 13, 3 days before the auction, in Geneva.
We had chosen the watches by interest, and were trying to keep variety, between the brands, the modern and the vintage, the sport and the dressed, of this selection:

LOT 19, a crazy Rolex 6542 GMT, 38mm, SS case, Used Bakelit bezel, tropical burned dial by the radium and the sun... The dial is amazing, the GMT hand is weird...
And we are in the absolute myth of the Rolex GMT. The watch has been retired before the sale...

Exclusivité: Les nouvelles Chopard Mille Miglia 2011!!

Depuis plus de vingt ans, Les Mille Miglia sont l'évènement « phare » parmi les nombreuses collaborations entre l’horlogerie et le sport automobile.

[BaselWorld] Nouveautés DeWitt 2011.

Marque peu présente dans les forums horlogers, car elle n’y remplissait pas les critères habituels aptes à créer le « buzz » auprès de cette audience, De Witt renverse méthodiquement la vapeur. Premièrement en renforçant la bien facture ainsi que l’identité propre des modèles et deuxièmement par une communication contemporaine intégrant l’échange avec les prospects ainsi que le suivi des clients.

[nouveauté] MB&F Frog Zr purple.

Mardi 10 mai 2011, Max Busser présente sa nouvelle déclinaison de la HM3 Frog, la Frog Zr, pour Zirconium. Ce métal de transition, possède des propriétés exceptionnelles de résistance à la chauffe et connaît donc de nombreuses applications dans l'industrie de production d'énergie. Seul Hublot l’avait déjà employé pour la carrure d’une Big Bang.

[Baselworld] De Bethune, future experimental.

I was quite astonished by the presence of De Bethune at Basel World, they launched plenty novelties during the WonderWeek of Geneva and thus I supposed that De Bethune was simply going to represent the same timepieces…

Anyway, I didn’t mean to be mean, once again they just surprised me. Overall one could expect DB28Tourbillon, even the DB25QP, but the DBM was acomplete breath-taker.

[BaselWorld] Ulysse Nardin, entrée dans la légende.

C'est délicat d'écrire un article d'actualité horlogère, alors que patron-gourou de la marque concerné vient de décéder.
Rolf Schnyder, visionnaire, qui avait su insuffler un renouveau technologique dans Ulysse Nardin, qui inspirera sans doute, la nouvelle vague indépendante, du milieu des années 2000.

The wedding of the year: The watch of William of England.

Kate thinking:
"What did my boyfriend wear as watch??"
"My God (and he willn't save the queen), he wear a watch of villein"
