The NEWEST and CRAZIEST Watches
Exploring the Wonders of Watchmaking: A Journey Through Geneva Watch Week
The Essence of De Bethune's Craftsmanship
During the Geneva Watch Week, we had the opportunity to delve into the world of De Bethune, a brand renowned for its exceptional craftsmanship and innovative designs. The CEO, Mr. Pierre Jacques, introduced us to their latest creations, each embodying the brand's commitment to excellence.
The DB28 Stares: A Celestial Marvel
One of the highlights was the DB28 Stares, a unisex timepiece that captures the essence of the night sky. With a 38.8 mm case and a unique floating lugs system, it features a "random guilloche" dial, creating an illusion of waves and constellations. This design is inspired by the reflection of the sky on the sea's surface, making it a true masterpiece of horological art.
The DB28 XP Kind of Blue: A Symphony in Sapphire
Another remarkable piece is the DB28 XP Kind of Blue, which showcases De Bethune's mastery in titanium oxidation. The process gives the watch a stunning blue hue, perfectly complementing its sleek design. This watch is not just a timepiece but a statement of style and sophistication.
The DB28 Digital: A Fusion of Art and Mechanics
In collaboration with artist and producer Swizz Beatz, De Bethune created the DB28 Digital, an annual calendar watch with a mechanical heart. This limited-edition piece, priced around $135,000, is a testament to the brand's ability to blend artistic vision with mechanical ingenuity.
MB&F's Ingenious Creations
Our journey continued with MB&F, where we encountered the HM9 SV, a marvel of sapphire crystal and gold. This watch, priced at $490,000, features two independent regulating systems, a testament to MB&F's innovative spirit.
The HM9 SV: A Fusion of Art and Engineering
The HM9 SV is a spectacle of design, with its sapphire crystal case and intricate movement. It's a driver's watch, designed for ease of time reading while keeping hands on the wheel. The movement's horizontal layout is transmitted vertically through a complex gear system, showcasing MB&F's commitment to pushing the boundaries of watchmaking.
Discoveries at Geneva Watch Days
The event also featured other notable brands and their latest offerings. From Girard Perregaux's unique color schemes to Ulysse Nardin's Freak collection, each brand brought something unique to the table. We also explored watches from Armin Strom and Jacob & Co, each showcasing their distinct style and craftsmanship.
A World of Color and Innovation
The diversity of designs and innovations at Geneva Watch Days was truly remarkable. From the green astronomia of Jacob & Co to the elegant simplicity of other brands, the event was a celebration of the art of watchmaking.
Conclusion: A Tribute to Horological Excellence
Geneva Watch Week was more than just a showcase of luxury watches; it was a tribute to the artistry, innovation, and passion that drives the world of horology. Each brand we visited, from De Bethune to MB&F, displayed a commitment to excellence that goes beyond mere timekeeping.
