Baselworld 2014 New Rolex Models

in Basel 2014 | Wednesday, April 2. 2014


New Rolex Models Presented at Baselworld 2014.


Datejust Pearlmaster 34 Reference: 81348SARO, 81349SA and 81285
Some diamonds are more precious than others. Not because they are bigger, but because of their exceptional ability to catch the slightest ray of light, to amplify it through their intricate facets and radiate with a unique brilliance. The beauty of exceptional diamonds is that they glitter as if they were made of pure light. Next to them, other diamonds seem dull and lacklustre. These finest of gems are very rare: they account for less than one per cent of the world's production. Yet they are the only diamonds deemed good enough by Rolex to adorn its jewelled masterpieces, such as the new Oyster Perpetual Datejust Pearlmaster 34, Rolex's latest tribute to the art of watchmaking jewellery

Oyster Pertetual Sky-Dweller Reference:326935, 326138 and 326139
picture of a pumpkin picture of a pumpkin picture of a pumpkin This aphorism, attributed to Leonardo da Vinci, captures the essence of the Oyster Perpetual Sky-Dweller, a model that remains simple to use despite its sophisticated watchmaking technology. This classically attractive watch designed for global travellers offers particularly useful functions: a dual time zone, an annual calendar that automatically differentiates between 30- and 31-day months, and a simplified interface to set the watch’s functions via a rotatable bezel.
At Baselworld 2014, Rolex is presenting three new versions of the Oyster Perpetual Sky-Dweller. In 18 ct yellow, white and Everose gold in a 42 mm case, they expand the existing collection by introducing new exclusive dials combined with new combinations of bracelets and leather straps

Milgauss Reference:116400GV
picture of a pumpkin Rolex is presenting a new version of the Oyster Perpetual Milgauss with unique and symbolic aesthetics. Its green sapphire crystal marked a first in watchmaking when it was introduced on the Milgauss in 2007. Now this crystal is combined with an electric blue dial, an allusion to the emblematic lightning-bolt-shaped seconds hand and the watch’s technical purpose as a paramagnetic timepiece designed for engineers and scientists in the 1950s. Seen through the green sapphire crystal, the Z blue dial takes on a powerfully attractive magnetic hue.

No one had managed to discover a way of manufacturing a watch component in high-technology ceramic with bulk colouring in two distinct colours. No one before Rolex..

Sea-Dweller 4000 Reference: 116600
picture of a pumpkin
When the Hydra VIII mission by Comex (Compagnie Maritime d'Expertises) set the world open-sea diving record at a depth of 534 metres in 1988, the watch that accompanied the divers on their mission was a Rolex Oyster Perpetual Sea-Dweller chronometer. This model was standard equipment for the world leader in marine engineering.
It was the only watch the firm’s elite divers fully trusted on their saturation dives to great depths – when precise timing is of vital importance at every stage – and the watch they had used on thousands of successful underwater missions in extreme conditions. Thanks to its Rolex-patented helium valve, this legendary watch was instrumental in the conquest of the deep. It is being reintroduced in an updated version that benefits from Rolex’s latest technical innovations while remaining faithful to the iconic aesthetics of the original model.

This is one of the watches that IWC Schaffhausen will have on show at the mega Watches & Wonders Exhibition this week in Hong Kong.

The watch celebrates the 70th birthday of the highly popular novella “The Little Prince” with the launch of two limited special editions: the Big Pilot’s Watch Perpetual Calendar Edition “Le Petit Prince” and the Pilot’s Watch Mark XVII Edition “Le Petit Prince”.

With these, the Swiss watch manufacturer pays tribute to one of the best-selling books in literary history, written by legendary writer, pilot and adventurer Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. Since 2006, the Schaffhausen luxury watch manufacturer has maintained a cordial partnership with Saint-Exupéry’s heirs and their charitable organization, the Antoine de Saint-Exupéry Youth Foundation.

“It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.”
Seventy years ago, this quotation and others like it literally enchanted the world when illustrious author and pilot Antoine de Saint-Exupéry published his parable “The Little Prince”. This profound tale about the little boy with the wheaten hair is one of the bestselling books in world literature and has been translated into more than 270 languages.
“With our long tradition of manufacturing Pilot’s Watches, we feel bound to Antoine de Saint-Exupéry in many ways. We were inspired by a man who was also a passionate designer and who obtained his for a pilot who was prepared to risk his life in the name of technological progress. And we are honouring Saint-Exupéry, the great writer and humanist, with whose works many of us grew up.” Georges Kern,CEO of IWC Schaffhausen.

Watch manufacturer IWC Schaffhausen, partner of the charitable Antoine de Saint-Exupéry Youth Foundation, is using the occasion to present two special editions devoted to this classic of literary history: the Big Pilot’s Watch Perpetual Calendar Edition “Le Petit Prince” (Ref. IW502802) in red gold, limited to 270 watches, and the Pilot’s Watch Mark XVII Edition “Le Petit Prince” (Ref. IW326506) in stainless steel, limited to 1,000 watches.

“Le Petit Prince” closely follows the classic Pilot’s Watches from IWC Schaffhausen. In terms of precision, reliability and authentic cockpit-style design, it embodies their fundamental values. The caseback is decorated with an engraving that shows the little Prince with a fluttering scarf on a tiny asteroid.

The watches have been released to support a great cause. proceeds from sales of the special editions Big Pilot’s Watch Perpetual Calendar Edition “Le Petit Prince” and the Pilot’s Watch Mark XVII Edition “Le Petit Prince” will go to the Foundation to support its worldwide commitment against illiteracy.

The prototype worn by Yohan Blake donated to Only Watch
Sep. 12, 2013 - 2809 reads
Richard Mille donates the RM 59-01 Tourbillon Yohan Blake for the Only Watch’s 5th edition charity auction. A prototype, which the sprinter Yohan Blake wore during the last Olympic Games.
Always at the cutting edge of creativity, the Richard Mille brand donates this unique fluorescent piece equipped with signature motifs; a great offering for the auction bid which will unite several prestigious horology and timekeeper brands at the end of September 2013 in Monaco. This watch will surely fascinate amateurs during this exceptional day dedicated to the Monaco Association against Muscular Dystrophies, directed by Luc Pettavino, Only Watch’s organiser. picture of a pumpkin

Precursor of the sports timekeeper Under the spotlight in the whole world, this work marks its time. During the 2012 Olympic Games, the watchmaker Richard Mille benefited from media coverage due to the three gold medals won by Yohan Blake. This watch reflects the colours of the Jamaican flag; the flange and the crown are green and both the minute-markers and the velcro wristlet are yellow, the whole contrasting with the sober white case. As for the sophisticated caliber, it consists of 19 rubies.

Coming back to the case of the watch, it must be noted that it is made from an extremely robust alloy, which represents one of the current lightest manufacturing metals. After a long and delicate machining phase, this alloy is subject to an exclusive Richard Mille electro-plasma oxidation procedure.

This plating improves the alloy’s hardness and consequently, improves its resistance to shocks and corrosion. For the first time in the sprint history, the manufacture tested this piece in extreme conditions to guarantee its resistance, performance and comfort. The result is a watch particularly adapted to the specificities required for sprinting.

IWC Filmmakers Dinner in Dubai, 10 December 2012 - Winning director with the panel of judges. From left to right: Olivier Pere, President of Arte France Cinema; Cate Blanchett, head of the IWC Award Jury; Maysoon Pachachi, winner of the IWC Filmmaker Award; Georges Kern, CEO IWC and Abdulhamid Juma, DIFF Chairman.



Dubai, 19 September 2013 – The Swiss luxury watch manufacturer IWC Schaffhausen has strengthened its partnership with the Dubai International Film Festival (DIFF) and will come on board as a ‘Supporting Sponsor’ and Official ‘Festival-Time’ Partner alongside the Dubai Culture & Arts Authority (Dubai Culture) and the Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum International Photography Award (HIPA) for the 10th edition of the festival, which runs from 6 to 14 December 2013.

The extended commitment from IWC is the result of a successful partnership over the past 3 years, in which IWC has served as the Official ‘Festival-Time’ Partner of the Gulf Film Festival and DIFF. In 2012, IWC and DIFF launched the IWC Filmmaker Award to support Gulf filmmakers, and the production of a feature-length fiction film with an award that offers a cash prize of USD 100,000 to help the winner transfer their vision to the screen. Last year’s Academy

Award winner and IWC Friend of the Brand Cate Blanchett, who was appointed head of the jury of the IWC Filmmaker Award, presented the award to Maysoon Pachachi, director of “Nothing Doing in Baghdad”. Submissions have now closed for the second year of the IWC Filmmaker Award, and three submissions will be shortlisted by an independent jury in October before IWC presents the award to its selected winner during the 10th Dubai International Film Festival.
Mahsa Motamedi, Executive Director of Marketing & Events, said: “DIFF is pleased to announce this new level of support. It’s a pleasure working with IWC Schaffhausen, who so actively encourage the development of the region’s film industry, and we look forward to celebrating another year of exceptional film-making with them.”



IWC’S COMMITMENT TO THE FILM INDUSTRY AS A PATRON OF THE ARTS The common ground for IWC and the film industry is storytelling. For years now, IWC has been inspired to sponsor the film industry and its most promising young talents. With its various film partnerships around the globe, such as the Tribeca Film Festival and the Beijing International Film Festival, and its annual Filmmakers Dinner at the Cannes International Film Festival, IWC has a wealth of opportunities to express its passion for film. The company is also known for its growing number of Friends of the Brand such as Cate Blanchett, Kevin Spacey and many others. Karoline Huber, Brand Director IWC Middle East & India, comments on the extended partnership with DIFF: “We are delighted to be strengthening our ties with DIFF to further support them in achieving a mutually shared vision of promoting regional talent in the film industry and bringing the very best of films to audiences in the UAE. IWC is proud to support the local film industry, as storytelling is not only the essence of film-making, but also part of IWC’s brand DNA.” 10th Dubai International Film Festival Logo



DUBAI INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL The Dubai International Film Festival (DIFF) is the leading film festival in the Middle East and Africa. Since its inception in 2004, the festival has served as an influential platform for Arab film-makers and talent at an international level by spearheading the cinema movement in the region. The 10th edition of DIFF is set to take place from 6 to 14 December 2013. Dubai International Film Festival supports Expo 2020 Dubai, UAE bid, and is presented by the Investment Corporation of Dubai and held in association with Dubai Studio City. Dubai Duty Free, Emirates Airline and Madinat Jumeirah, home to the Dubai International Film Festival, are the principal sponsors of DIFF. The Festival is supported by the Dubai Culture & Arts Authority, the Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum International Photography Award and IWC Schaffhausen.

Basel 2013 Jaeger Le-Coultre

in Basel 2013 | Wednesday, May 22. 2013


Jaeger -LeCoultre Master Ultra Thin Perpetual Watch
picture of a pumpkin
Jaeger-LeCoultre has unveiled an ultra-thin automatic perpetual calendar timepiece. The 39mm watch has a thickness of 9.2 mm. It houses the Caliber 868 movement, the manufacture’s ultra-thin automatic perpetual calendar movement that’s a mere 4.72 mm thick. In addition to the hour, minute and central seconds hands, the Master Ultra Thin Perpetual watch comprises three counters dedicated to the perpetual calendar displays: the first at 9 o’clock for the day of the week; the second at 3 o’clock for the date; and the third at 6 o’clock for the month. Jaeger-LeCoultre’s signature appears below the moon phase. A four-digit display appears through a small aperture at 7 o’clock. A single crown changes all the indications in a simple procedure: one press moves the perpetual calendar one day forward, while any additional changes required to keep step with the Gregorian calendar take place automatically. The watch mechanism takes account of the unequal length of months with 28, 30 or 31 days. Every four years, it will naturally display the 29th of February associated with leap years. It requires no manual adjustment before March 1, 2100, since century years are an exception to the four-year cycle governing leap years. Meanwhile, the moon-phase display will portray the various states of the Earth’s satellite over the next 122 years. Just above the dial center is a small rectangular window, about the same shade as the background, which turns gradually red as evening falls. The new model comes in an 18k pink gold case with a white dial, an 18k white gold version comes with a grained silver-toned dial, and a steel model available exclusively at Jaeger-LeCoultre boutiques with a sunburst silver-toned dial.




The Rendez-Vous Celestial by Jaeger Le-Coultre
picture of a pumpkin
The new timepiece by Jaeger-LeCoultre has a rendezvous with the sky. It offers an authentic anthem to the creative freedom that has inspired the Manufacture in the Vallée de Joux since 1833. Paying tribute to artistic crafts, its elegance is inextricably bound up with its mechanical excellence. Created in complete harmony with traditional horology, it illustrates 180 years of history, expertise and technical perfection. The Rendez-Vous Celestial by Jaeger-LeCoultre is an invitation to embark on a galactic voyage and a vivid reminder that, 180 years ago, it was beneath the same star-studded sky that Antoine LeCoultre gave rise to what would become the Grande Maison in the Vallée de Joux. Nestling in its 18-carat white gold case, the watch reveals the full force of charm by a ricochet effect. Like a luminous echo, diamonds dance across the sides of the case all the way to the crowns and the bezel, before unfurling like a diadem above the numerals. The dial succumbs to the beauty of rare crafts while preserving the impeccable readability of all the functions. The collection’s characteristic hour numerals feature a contemporary shape stretching across the curve of a crescent that is hand-guilloché according to the ancestral tradition of this decorative art, and coated with a transparent blue lacquer. The hour arc tops a disc providing a spectacular vision of the sky with the constellation appearing on a precious lapis lazuli plate. Offering a delightfully lyrical touch, the designers of the model have chosen to incorporate a shooting star as a means of customising time: via a second crown adorned with an inverteddiamond, the mobile star serves to set a personal rendezvous with the stars. Accentuating the celestial ambitions that make this watch a perfect instrument for making astronomical observations, a zodiac calendar on the dial serves to show the position of the constellations at any moment of the year, by means of an annual calendar that governs the system of time display and measurement. The mechanical automatic movement, Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 809, rotates the star disc at the imperceptibly gradual pace of one turn every 23 hours, 56 minutes and 04 seconds.





Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Tourbillon
picture of a pumpkin A Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Tourbillon Caliber 978 wristwatch won the first timing competition in more than 35 years, gaining 909 points out of a perfect timing score of 1,000. Second place went to a Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Gyrotourbillon with 908 points. The Chronometrie 2009 international timing competition for mechanical wristwatches was held to mark the 50th anniversary of the watch museum in Le Locle. The Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Tourbillon The Reverso Gyrotourbillon 2 cased up The revival of competitive timing also brings back the craft of the régleur, or precision timer who prepares watches for the contest. The art consists of juggling conflicting parameters to achieve the truest time and the most constant rate in different positions and temperatures. The two Jaeger-LeCoultre watches were adjusted by a team led by the firm’s technical director, Mr. Jean-Claude Meylan. The timing results of the competition show that the Master Tourbillon gained on average 0.13 seconds a day, or less than 47.5 seconds a year, and its rate did not vary more than 0.28 seconds a day. The multi-axis Gyrotourbillon movement with a helical mainspring showed remarkable constancy of rate between vertical and horizontal positions, with an average daily variation of 0.29 seconds in the three stages of the trial.
