CARTIER HOME

The story of objects at Cartier begins with the story of jewellery. The objects created by the Maison are intimately tied to the arts of the jeweller, goldsmith and silversmith, exquisitely incorporating precious materials, motifs, craftsmanship and creativity. The tradition of everyday treasures at Rue de la Paix dates back to the late 19th century, when vanity cases, lighters, boxes, bottles, tumblers, frames and card holders gave expression to a delicate, luxurious and profoundly aesthetic art de vivre. Cartier rekindles the spirit of everyday objects with a modern touch in this colourful collection of contemporary designer homeware.

CARTIER HOME OBJECTS COLLECTION
The new homeware collection by Cartier cultivates a discerning art de vivre, presenting candles and candle holders, boxes, photo frames, trays and bowls which are precious and refined, stylish yet functional.
These objects exude the signature Cartier style in sublime detail showcasing precious materials and utilizing craftsmanship that draws on a broad tradition of techniques. True to the graphic inspiration characteristic to Cartier, the collection is defined by geometric motifs and the monogram. These motifs, in engraved metal or openwork detail, pay tribute to the art deco tradition in a fresh interpretation of the repertoire.
The objects are reflections of Cartier excellence, their craftsmanship evident in the finely wrought sophistication of the engraved metal and openwork detail. Further ornamentation is supplied by the dainty application of enamel on bisque porcelain, and the cabochon cut of decorative red jasper, onyx and lepidolite.

BELOVED ADDITIONS TO THE DÉCOR
As well as honouring an art de vivre, this collection by Cartier pays homage to the art of giving in its selection of beloved objects, sentimental tokens and precious gifts. A candle holder lights up the moment whilst a photo frame holds and displays cherished memories. With each piece in the collection Cartier speaks to the heart of the recipient, weaving intimate ties between the jeweller and the object, the object and its true home.

CHANEL Fine Jewellery RUBAN collection

Vacheron Constantin

Slate grey faces for the six new models joining the Traditionnelle collection

  • Pink gold cases and slate grey dials
  • Manufacture mechanical movements, manual-winding and self-winding
  • Geneva watchmaking tradition expressed in a contemporary spirit


Slate grey makes its entrance on the dials of six Traditionnelle creations available with 18K 5N pink gold cases. A modern and elegant style for models combining technical sophistication and distinctive watchmaking characteristics, interpreted through a range of varied horological complications.

A round stepped case, slim bezel and fluted caseback; a railway-track minute circle, “bâtons de Genève” applied hour-markers and Dauphine-type hands: the new models combine the signature characteristics of the Traditionnelle collection. The warm glow of 18K 5N pink gold beautifully offsets the slate-grey shade of the opaline dial, teamed with an elegant black alligator leather strap.

Embodying a contemporary expression of the grand Geneva watchmaking tradition, each model houses a Manufacture mechanical movement, manual-winding or self-winding depending on the model and adorned with exquisite hand-crafted finishing. Showcasing the full spectrum of the watchmaking art, from simple displays to the most sophisticated complications, this line pays tribute to the technical and aesthetic expertise of Vacheron Constantin, enriched by almost three centuries of uninterrupted activity.

Roger Dubuis – Excalibur Spider

Roger Dubuis further speeds up its ‘Dare to be Rare’ concept with the launch of three Excalibur Spider models inspired by performance oriented industries and supercar supremacy.

Pursuing its bold approach to watchmaking in terms of ‘progressive complications and disruptive materials’, Roger Dubuis offers three new expressions of its Excalibur Spider combining the signature features of its skeleton timepieces with the unmistakable racing design stamp of the brand’s recent luxury alliances. Prestigious partnerships that are taking the engineering skill, creativity and uniqueness embedded in the Roger Dubuis DNA to the next level.

Run to Monaco 2017 – RDDBEX0589

A powerful touch of orange

Because Roger Dubuis never does anything by halves, the Excalibur Spider Double Flying Tourbillon recalls the specific colour coding typical of supercar dashboards. The vibrant orange shade of the rubber overmolding is picked up on the two-tone skeleton dial as well as the strap and stitching, in a tip of the hat to supercar seats with their different materials and multicolour details. This zestful model is powered by brand-new hand-wound mechanical skeleton Calibre D105SQ. The twin flying tourbillons at 5 and 7 o’clock are rimmed by speedometer-type small seconds displays, while the multi-coloured power-reserve indicator is a cool nod to racing-car cockpit fuel gauges. Exclusivity is the middle name of this 8-piece limited edition.

Turning up the heat

Contrasts reign supreme as the soft and warmth glow of pink gold is paired with futuristic titanium and multi-layered carbon on the new Excalibur Spider Skeleton Automatic. The two new models perfectly embody the talent and ingenuity deployed by the ‘pioneer of contemporary skeletons’, with contrasts also expressed through finishing textures, and synonymous with the racing automobile-inspired vibe embodied in the Excalibur collection. Roger Dubuis maintains its resolutely exclusive approach to watchmaking with 28- and 88-piece limited editions.

Breguet

Breguet and its President & CEO, Marc A. Hayek, are once again taking part in Only Watch, the industry’s unmissable charity event. Loyal as ever to the Monaco Association against Muscular Dystrophy since 2005, the Manufacture dedicates this year to this worthy cause a yellow gold Classique with in-line perpetual calendar. This special one-of-a-kind model will be shown at the Monaco Yacht Show from September 27th to 30th, before embarking on a world tour. The auction closing Only Watch 2017 will be held for the second year in a row in Geneva, on Saturday, November 11, 2017.

The Breguet Classique Quantième Perpétuel en Ligne 7715 presented this year at the Only Watch event depicts the passing of time with a pleasing blend of elegance and accuracy. The customary indications are complemented by a perpetual calendar on which the display of the days, months, dates and years is designed to ensure optimal user friendliness and impeccable legibility. The hours and minutes thus play the starring role, with blued steel Breguet hands sweeping over a Roman numeral chapter ring. Set in the background at 6 o’clock, one of the most useful horological complications – the date itself – is nonetheless appropriately large and easily readable at a glance, while the other related indications are conveniently vertically aligned up to 12 o’clock.

This original design results in an apparently simple timepiece distinguished by a sense of visual balance and purity. The silvered gold dial, finely hand-engraved on a rose engine, highlights the traditional “Clous de Paris” hobnailing. The equally pure counters, rimmed by a guilloché border pattern, feature a circular satin- brushed finish. The sapphire crystal fitted on the back of the watch reveals the technical sophistication of this Only Watch special model, driven by Calibre 502QPLT. The entirely hand-engraved self-winding movement and its offset oscillating weight once again testify to the exceptional degree of expertise and skill cultivated by the artisans of the House of Breguet.

Vacheron Constantin CELESTIAL MECHANICS

Discover Vacheron Constantin’s Unyielding Quest for Excellence in the Celestial Mechanics of the Latest Astronomical Timepiece

Vacheron Constantin, the world’s oldest Haute Horlogerie manufacturer with over 260 years of uninterrupted history, debuted its latest astronomical timepieces in Hong Kong in a vivid dialogue between the infinitely large and the infinitely small: between the heavenly rhythm of the celestial rotations and the intrinsic celestial mechanics in the Maison’s astronomical timepieces.


Since its foundation in Geneva in 1755, Vacheron Constantin has been in the very heart of excellence with a perpetual determination to seek mechanical precision, and a ceaseless will to master artistic crafts. For more than 260 years, Vacheron Constantin’s masterful horological creations have been endowed with the timeless beauty of intrinsically sophisticated works. In 2015, on the occasion of the Maison’s 260thanniversary, Vacheron Constantin released Reference 57260, the most complicated watch ever made, combining traditional watchmaking principles with the latest technological advances. Reference 57260 redefined the limits of the possible with a total of 57 horological complications in one double-dial pocket watch, of which 27 were astronomical. Earlier this year, during Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie Genève 2017, Vacheron Constantin presented Les Cabinotiers Celestia Astronomical Grand Complication 3600, featuring 23 astronomical complications on a double-dial wristwatch, providing a reading of time in three modes: civil, solar, and sidereal, each driven by its own gear train. Five years of development, a dedicated master-watchmaker, along with two years of design, this Haute Horlogerie “heavenly phenomenon” is one of the most complex ever made and heir to a proud lineage of Vacheron Constantin’s astronomical timepieces.

In honour of the Maison’s technical and artistic excellence in astronomical horology, Vacheron Constantin proudly debuted its latest astronomical timepieces on Wednesday, 7 June 2017 in Hong Kong, in an exhibition called “Celestial Mechanics”, creating a dialogue between the infinitely large and the infinitely small: while the heavenly rhythm of the solar system organizes our existence, the mechanical miniatures of intrinsic horological works choreograph the complex celestial ballet of the solar, lunar, sidereal and terrestrial rotations.

Roger Dubuis dares to be rare and races with Pi

Roger Dubuis and Pirelli fast-track a new lap side by side in their adrenaline-charged partnership this May, with a new iteration of the recently launched Excalibur Spider Pirelli.

From May 23rd to 29th 2017, Roger Dubuis and car tyre legend Pirelli will once again demonstrate their “perfect fit” partnership by challenging all- comers to dare to be rare as they dare to race alongside the Run to Monaco on its 2017 journey.

The Run to Monaco 2017

Characterised by privileged exclusivity, rampant virility and shared commitment to providing authentic money-can’t-buy experiences, this great match between Roger Dubuis and Pirelli is rooted in the fact that exclusive service is a must for those who want to make a lasting imprint on scorching tarmac.

With its fantastic scenery, stunning performance, adrenaline-pumping excitement and total luxury from start to finish, the Run to Monaco undoubtedly qualifies as one of life’s extraordinary experiences, culminating in one of the world’s most famous and lavish motorsports events in the iconic town by the same name.

The Run to Monaco 2017

When the engineers from two separate fields share their knowledge, comprehensive know-how, sophisticated research and innovative drive, the result is an exclusive series of the Excalibur Spider Pirelli – Automatic Skeleton.

In the latest and colourful new lap of this exclusive luxury alliance, the two Excalibur Spider Pirelli Yellow and Red feature the proud colours of the iconic tyre logo in a stunning complement to the proudly unmistakable features of the Excalibur line.

The Run to Monaco 2017

Entirely in chromatic tune with these bold new timepieces, the Pirelli Color Edition tyres made their debut at the 2017 Geneva International Motor Show. It is no coincidence that Pirelli, taking inspiration from its longstanding experience in racing competitions – where the colouring of the tyres identifies the different compounds – will soon be applying colour to certain road tyres so as to emphasize their uniqueness.

Distinguished by a black and blue, red or yellow skeletonised flange, the colour coding of these vibrant new Excalibur Spider Pirelli models is further accentuated by a titanium black DLC crown over-moulded with matching-colour stitching on the straps as appropriate.

And as an ultimate nod to the winning streak that is embedded in the DNA of these two exceptional brands, the straps of these ruggedly reliable timepieces are manufactured from winning Pirelli motorsport tyre rubber, and their interior features the distinctive tread profile. Issued in an 88-piece limited edition, the robust 45mm skeleton case of the Excalibur Spider Automatic Skeleton provides a perfect frame for the brand’s best- selling Calibre RD820SQ.
