Hermès Watch Arceau Pocket Aaaaargh!One-of-a-kind creation

Leather craftsmanship meets Haute Horlogerie to create a unique pocket watch, featuring the T-Rex from the Aaaaargh! silk scarf designed by Alice Shirley.

Beating to the rhythm of the Manufacture H1924 minute-repeater and tourbillon movement,

the Arceau Pocket Aaaaargh! frames a refined white enamel dial,protected by a cover adorned with a tyrannosaurus composed of marquetry and leather mosaic.

The design of the tyrannosaurus, which appears to be peeking through a porthole, stands out against the cover and involves a combination of several demanding skills.

The head and scales are made in leather mosaic:  thousands of finely hand-cut multicoloured leather fragments are applied one by one to faithfully reproduce the original pattern.

The domed eye of the dinosaur, visible on both sides of the cover, is made of cabochon cut Grand Feu enamel.

Finally, the jaw and tongue are crafted in leather marquetry: fine tesserae are cut from various coloured leathers, previously thinned to just 0.5 mm, before being juxtaposed on the enamel base.

Setting the final touch to this miniaturised leather artwork, a matt green alligator leather cord-strap is secured to the rectangular stirrup and accentuates the overall design.

Cartier Unveils Tank Asymétrique Watch A New Member of The Cartier Privé Collection

Cartier debuts the new Tank Asymétrique watch, a new member of the Cartier Privé collection.

Tank Asymétrique appeared in 1936 – marking a break withtradition: unlike any other watch, it questioned the establishedorder of things. The rectangle of the original Tank became a diamond; everything on the dial was shift 30° to the right, and a specific strap was developed for the watch. The presence of this new Tank Asymétrique on the wrist was simply striking.

In 2020, six new Tank Asymétrique watches have been launched with new features. On the dial, the Arabic numerals and their separating indexes have been completely redesigned. Its two horizontal shafts are connected by two oblique ones, and its numerals off-set by 30° to the right. In its refined volume, Cartier watchmakers have included the Manufacture 1917 MC movement, a noble movement due to the beauty of the manual winding gesture. Three of these novel Tank Asymétrique are skeleton watches: the 9623 MC skeleton movement appears at the centre of a bare structure, punctuated by the 12 and the 6. The integration of this specially developed calibre within an asymmetric watch fulfils the mission of the Cartier Privé collection: to apply technology to the service of design. The six elegant and unique watches, all extra-large models, have been created in a limited series of 100 numbered pieces for each aesthetic.

BREMONT EXTENDS ARMED FORCES COLLECTION: INTRODUCING THE BROADSWORD BRONZE

One of Bremont’s proudest achievements to date was the beginning of an official partnership with the Ministry of Defence (MoD) in 2019, paying tribute to Her Majesty’s Armed Forces. Through this partnership, Bremont became the sole luxury watch producer legitimately allowed to use the signs, symbols and Heraldic Badges of all three services; the Royal Navy, British Army and Royal Air Force.

2020 sees the introduction of the Broadsword Bronze timepieces, adding to the original line up in Bremont’s Armed Forces Collection. The use of bronze nods to the material’s importance in naval engineering due to its high corrosion resistance to salt water. The new Broadsword case is made of CuSn8 bronze, a solid solution strengthened copper alloy with 8% tin. The high tin content adds to strength, wear and resistance to corrosion. The Bremont Broadsword was originally designed as a contemporary take on the three handed ‘Dirty Dozen’ watch design, a series of timepieces commissioned for the British Army during World War Two when Britain’s Ministry of Defence needed watches to issue to military personnel.

The new bronze editions will be available in three different coloured dial and strap variations, complementing the existing range. The ‘slate’, ‘sotek’ (a military green/teal colour) and ‘tobacco’ dials feature a sub-seconds hand at six o’clock as well as multiple layers of luminous paint on both the dial and hands to complete the original specification for the British Army. The Broadsword Bronze houses the chronometer rated BE-95-2AV movement inside its two-piece 40mm case featuring a steel, screw-in case back stamped with the badges of all three services. As a ‘living’ metal, each model will develop its own unique patina over time, meaning no two watches will ever look the same.

In the 1940s very strict performance specifications for the original Dirty Dozen were set which included waterproofing, regulation to chronometer specification, luminous markings on the dial and a robust case construction. The Broadsword has not only been designed and engineered to meet these criteria but also to reflect the needs of Her Majesty’s Armed Forces today. As with all Bremont watches, the Broadsword Bronze will be produced at the company’s headquarters in Henley-on-Thames, UK.

Bremont’s well-respected heritage and reputation within the military, specifically with the British military, made the British watchmaker the natural partner of choice for the MoD. Bremont has created numerous special-order projects at the request of personnel from all branches of the British armed forces and is widely recognised throughout for its discretion, its patriotism and its reputation for supplying products that are fit for purpose.

Suggested retail price:  HK$29,250.

Chaumet launches the new chapter of its high jewellery collection – Perspectives de Chaumet

ONDULATION OF GOLD AND GEMS

Ondulation, the final chapter in the Perspectives de Chaumet High Jewellery collection presented in July, stands out for its virtuoso, articulate and distinctive pieces in which yellow gold enhances and contrasts with exceptional coloured stones.

For 240 years, architecture has been one of the cornerstones of the Chaumet stylistic repertoire and an inexhaustible source of inspiration for the new Perspectives de Chaumet thematic High Jewellery collection, which pays tribute to the major trends in international architecture through a resolutely contemporary and innovative approach.

Inspired by deconstructivist architecture, Ondulation, the last of the collection’s six chapters, breaks with the laws of perspective to celebrate the art of movement and the freedom of masterful creativity. Featuring enhanced articulation, this parure is the result of the coming together of craftsmanship and 3D technology in the High Jewellery realm. In this sixth chapter, this alliance of tradition and modernity serves to remove the barriers to virtuosity.

Suggestive of sun-bathed architecture, yellow gold is worked in volume like a second-skin mesh, for which flexibility and lightness are the key words. In a surprising alternating of solid and segmented, it combines a strong presence with a sense of lightness in a necklace composed of 950 gold ingots that caress the contours of the neck. Appearing to miraculously balance on this supple structure, an exceptional and bewitching bluish-green 30.25-carat indicolite tourmaline contrasts with the warm tones of gold.

Elsewhere, the precious metal’s brilliance seems to merge with the yellow sapphires of a cuff bracelet and a jewel watch whose dial features a new take on trompe-l’oeil, an historic Chaumet speciality. Rings and earrings also play up the contrasts created with indicolite tourmalines in striking hues.

This ornamental parure evokes Chaumet jewellery in the 1970s’ Pierre Sterle style, in which yellow gold is worked in singular textures and interplays of feminine curves, covering and revealing the body with a sensual allure.

Hermès Watch – Heure H

Heure H dons a new metal bracelet featuring a flowing and stylised aesthetic.

More than a watch, Heure H is a symbol.

A singular idea imagined by designer Philippe Mouquet in 1996: capturing time inside a letter providing a playful frame.

Adorned with a metal bracelet, Heure H asserts a radical and contemporary style. A natural extension of the case, the links formed by small squares correspond to the geometry of the dial and its graphic numerals.

The new Heure H is presented in three elegant steel variations: one with 114 “feather-set” diamonds, a natural white mother-of-pearl dial;  a second graced with mother-of-pearl with 11 diamond hour-markers;  and a third enhanced with a sunburst central square.

The case, dial and bracelet are crafted in the Hermès Horloger workshops.
