Courtesy of Eberhard
The three days of racing on Garda lake have been intense for the Audi-Eberhard Melges 32. 
 The boat skippered by Edoardo and Giovanni Pavesio ranked first in the 4th leg of the Audi Sailing Series circuit.

The team has been well-served by tactician Gabriele Benussi and mainsail-trimmer Riccardo Simoneschi, and has been rewarded by their consistency, remaining focused in some of the most demanding phases of the race.

“The sailing universe is governed by precise timing, skill, coordination and precision like the watchmaking world”, was the satisfied comment of Mario Peserico, CEO of Eberhard Italia.
“Thanks to these expertise and values we have been able to produce measuring instruments for well over a century, since Eberhard & Co. is celebrating this year its 125th anniversary, 
a very long history of precision, reliability and technical research that are the strengths of the company and the brand”.

The Audi-Eberhard team has moved up from the sixth to fourth place in the general Melges 32 ranking, while ranking second in the Melges 20 category 
and remaining one of the main contenders of the Melges 24 class, thanks to victories in the Austria Cup and Kieler Woche.

Following the Malcesine competition, the Melges 32 are now on their way to the finals in Naples, as are the Melges 20, reaching the same port after the leg scheduled in Viareggio.  
Meanwhile, the Melges 24 is preparing for the season’s main event, the World Championship that will be contested in Torbole from July 28 through August 4.

The teams that will rank first in the Audi Sailing Series will be awarded two prestigious Eberhard & Co. timepieces.

BOVET supports the Gstaad Menuhin Festival

Courtesy of Bovet
Classical music and fine watchmaking share many values in common. Extraordinary vectors of emotion, both
these arts have a universal ability to unite enthusiasts the world over. It is the attention paid to every detail, invisible or inaudible though it may be, that magnifies watchmaking or musical masterpieces.

Moreover, music is omnipresent in watchmaking.  The regular pulse of the regulating organ within a
timepiece, akin to a metronome, creates the precision that characterises Swiss watchmaking. In addition to
their exemplary rhythmical regularity, numerous BOVET timepieces also provide musical accompaniments, as in the case of the minute-repeater. In such timepieces, crafted by virtuoso artisans of BOVET 1822, the
movements strike the hours, quarters and minutes on request, on gongs tuned by watchmakers to the exact
frequency after being shaped to obtain a crystal-clear sonority.
 

On a more philosophical note, BOVET 1822 is renowned for sustaining its unique heritage and skills
such as engraving, miniature painting and jewel-setting, regardless of fashion, which is by nature ephemeral. The links that unite watchmaking and music also inspired the name of a BOVET collection, called Récital. In view of these facts, it was only natural that the House of BOVET 1822 should support the Gstaad Menuhin Festival (from 20 July to 8 September) and we are delighted to mark time together at this prestigious event.

Fine Arabian Stallions Timed by GRIEB & BENZINGER

It’s gotten around in the world of watches: GRIEB & BENZINGER fulfills horological dreams. In order to realize the wish of a watch collector and horse enthusiast from the Arabian region, GRIEB & BENZINGER created the POLARIS from 2011’s BOUTIQUE Collection in solid white gold and palladium alloy. Thanks to the passion for his noble Arabian stallions, the watch for this collector needed to have an unostentatious color scheme to harmonize with a special saddle especially made for him as well as made-to-measure riding boots and the steel parts of a riding harness. A white-gold-and-honey-brown combination allowed GRIEB & BENZINGER to fulfill the wishes of the client. This watch crafted in the subtle white gold and palladium alloy displays an impressively restrained hand-guilloché bezel and a solid case that simultaneously testifies to the substantial value of this watch.
Courtesy of Grieb & Benzinger
Like hardly another, GRIEB & BENZINGER knows how to fulfill the wishes of its clients with traditional technology and exceptional design, creating a handmade unique piece with high exclusivity. The mechanical movement with in-house modifications was, like all GRIEB & BENZINGER watches, created in traditional craftsmanship using historical machines and tools: skeletonization, guilloché and engraving are all completed by hand to achieve one impressive movement with a great deal of character.

The multiple-part dial is a work of art: the hand-guilloché and semi-skeletonized base dial allows a view of the technical movement modification of the hour and minute indications. It is crafted in solid Sterling silver and glows with a white Breguet frosted finish, a technique that is currently only applied by GRIEB & BENZINGER. The applied red gold skeletonized dial elements hover gracefully over the base dial.

Linde Werdelin’s Oktopus II is just 3 weeks away from you!

Previewed at BaselWorld 2012 in March, now Oktopus II is just 3 weeks away from you.

Linde Werdelin’s interpretation of an ideal timepiece for modern diving.
The Oktopus II is designed to carry the Reef, our very own dive instrument and offer the most sophisticated dive tool for the way we dive today.
Courtesy of Linde Werdelin
The Oktopus II boasts a brand new case construction. Individually crafted in titanium, rose gold, and ceramic to offer excellent anti-corrosive performance against the impact of lengthy submersion into sea water, the Oktopus II houses an upscale custom-made movement that powers a big-date display in double wheels in an air-sealed cylinder that forms the heart of the timepiece.

Drawn upon in-house expertise of developing dive computers, the case is meticulously and robustly constructed based on the structure of an air-tight pressure chamber to offer absolute water resistance, using the most innovative case construction technology and precision that would not be possible 10 years ago.

Perrelet's Turbine Toxic Special Edition

Perrelet Rocks With the New Release of the Eye-Catching
Turbine Toxic Special Edition


Courtesy of Perrelet
The slightly provocative Turbine Toxic model plays with danger by displaying an eye-catching trendy skull symbol, appearing in precious form at the heart of this Special Edition timepiece featuring an automatic P-331 Double Rotor movement, exclusive to Perrelet. 
A universally adopted aesthetic intended to signal the presence of toxic substances, the skull appeared in classical art as a symbol of the past, before coming to symbolize piracy in the 18th century, and then cer­tain well-known motorbike fans in the 1950s... It has now lost its taboo connotations to become a symbol of freedom that has spread throughout all echelons of the fashion world.

Courtesy of Perrelet

Beneath the optical effect created by the 12-blade wheel rotating across the Turbine Toxic models, the human skull appears in a truly luxurious interpretation. The men's version is set with 210 dia­monds (0.82 cts) and the ladies' variation with 155 dia­monds (0.59 cts). The resulting effects are all the more luminous in that they are set against an all-black back­ground spread across the cases, dials and straps.
Courtesy of Perrelet

The line offers a choice of two sizes - the bold Turbine Toxic XL model measuring 50 millimeters (mm) in diame­ter; a DLC-treated steel watch on a rubber strap, and the more demure 41 mm-diameter Turbine Toxic XS in DLC-treated steel on a rubber or satin strap.

The boutique will be more than a traditional watch store. There will be an explorers club based from there, a considerable watch library and it will also be the only place in the world to see unique items like the Bremont B-1 Marine Clock. It is never an easy decision to launch your own boutique, but when we were approached by Grosvenor regarding the location there was no hesitation. We felt it was perfect for our brand.”

PRIMUS Desert Pilot – for the modern adventurer The

The models featured in the Primus collection offer a contemporary take on the legendary chronographs produced by Hanhart. In 2012, the Swiss-German watch brand is launching the Primus Desert Pilot pilot’s chronograph, which sports a trendy outdoor look with a sand-blasted case and a sand-colored dial and fabric strap.
Courtesy of Hanhart

The Swiss-German watch brand Hanhart, which is celebrating its 130th anniversary in 2012, is known for its precision-perfect and absolutely reliable instrument watches designed for use in the air, on the land and on the sea. The pilot’s chronographs it started producing in its manufactory in the southern German town of Gütenbach back in 1939 were instrumental in shaping the iconic design of this type of timepiece. Hanhart has produced a contemporary version of these legendary chronographs in the form of the Primus Pilot, which cleverly combines historical details with progressive design.

The perfect outdoor look
Inspired by the desire for freedom and adventure, Hanhart is now introducing the Primus Desert Pilot, a watch with a cool outdoor look that highlights the independence of the wearer. Its solid stainless steel case with flexible lugs has a matt sand-blasted finish, giving it a technical and sporty appearance. Another new feature is the sand-colored dial, which presents a striking contrast to the large Arabic numeral 12, clearly readable index marks and distinctive hands – all of which are finished with a black Super-LumiNova® coating. It is encased by a convex, internally anti-reflective sapphire glass, while a screwed-down sapphire glass case back allows the wearer to see the fascinating interplay of the movement and the rotor. The Primus Desert Pilot is finished off with a coarsely woven fabric strap – also sand-colored – along with a practical, easily adjustable folding clasp made from sand-blasted stainless steel with an inlaid red marking.

Committed to tradition
However, like all the models in the Primus collection, the Desert Pilot also bears the recognizable hallmarks which hark back to Hanhart’s watch manufacturing tradition: one of the brand’s distinctive features, the red reset button, underlines the relationship between Hanhart’s first pilot’s chronographs, its mechanical stopwatches and the current collection. It has been a distinguishing characteristic of Hanhart watches since 1939 and was previously intended to prevent pilots from unintentionally resetting the stop time. For the models featured in the Primus collection it has been finished with anodized aluminum. The thin, distinctive fluted bezel with inlaid red marking is also reminiscent of the design of the legendary chronographs from Gütenbach.

Top functionality, ease of use and maximum readability
In order to ensure safety and ease of use for the measurement of time intervals or for air and water navigation, or when using a stopwatch to measure interval times and end times or distances on dry land, the first priority was to ensure maximum functionality, ease of use and outstanding reading precision. There was no need for unnecessary gimmicks or design features on the case and dial, and Hanhart continues, as always, to stand by this maxim. To ensure an accurate
time display and precision chronometry, the models in the Primus collection are equipped with an automatic calibre modified to a bicompax display, featuring a rotor with a skeletonized Hanhart logo. This allows the small seconds to be clearly positioned at 9 o’clock and the 30-minute counter to be arranged at 3 o’clock – a configuration which Hanhart has customarily used from the very beginning. Perfect readability is guaranteed not least by the clear design of the
dial and the black Super-LumiNova® coated hands.

Movement: HAN3809 modified automatic chronograph movement (bicompax), based on the Valjoux 7750 calibre; 28,800 vibrations per hour, 4 Hz; 28 jewels; rotor with a skeletonized Hanhart logo; power reserve of min. 42 hours

Functions: Small seconds at 9 o’clock, 30-minute counter at 3 o’clock, date display at 6 o’clock

Sea God Black & White

From our partner site - Tempus Fugit

Watches are fun - at least they should be.  Writing about this stuff, sometimes several times a day, 365 days a year - it's easy to get bogged down in LUXURY, EXCLUSIVITY, etc.  It can actually get a bit tiresome.  I think it is easy to forget that a watch is something that is not necessarily needed, but rather something that is WANTED.  Hopefully, something that is fun.  To that end, if you are not already familiar with them, allow me to introduce you to Sea God.  This is their Sea God Black & White.

Graham's new Chronofighter Oversize


Daring GRAHAM is prepared to brave the elements to put its new generation of
Chronofighter Oversize to the test of real life. The sturdy and wandering chronographs do
not fear extreme conditions and have been developed for explorers and modern
conquerors. The new Chronofighter Oversize is already a legendary wrist machine as the
performance goes far beyond technological limits.

Courtesy of Graham
Every adventurer knows that the world is dangerous and insecure. Wind howling, weird
sounds from nowhere. Thick forests, sharp mountains, dangerous animals, fickle weather,
unknown tribes...everything is conceivable. A nameless world appears around you. A world in
which the most exciting adventures can happen.

The new Chronofighter Oversize has been developed to survive in today’s toughest
environments. Completely re-engineered, the Chronofighter Oversize features many
characteristics which will help explorers of modern times to survive and move forward through
real life conditions.
Courtesy of Graham
The start and stop lever on the left of the case, renowned GRAHAM signature, is made of
plain carbon material and results from a very specific machining process. This means that the lever is a unique piece of carbon which provides the watch with more stiffness and enhanced usability. The black ceramic bezel gives the watch its strength and shining personality.

To brave the elements, each watch is also endowed with a calculated telemeter scale. It enables
to measure distances thanks to speed of sound by starting the chronograph when a visible event
occurs (e.g. lightning) and stop it when the sound reaches the observer (e.g. thunder). As the
temperature influences the speed of sound, our engineers have based their calculations on 25°C,
the average temperature on Earth. The distance in kilometres can be measured on the dial
thanks to the scale rim (346 m/s).

Courtesy of Graham
High-tech material and processes have been used to create a watch that withstands dangerous
and rugged environments: a watch you can absolutely rely on.
The watch is light to wear and safe. The colours of each watch will help you blend into every
world.

Get your back-pack ready. GRAHAM will take you to the most inspiring climes.

Main features also include:
47 mm steel with black PVD case, calibre G1747, automatic chronograph, 25 jewels, 28’800 A/h
(4Hz), Incabloc shock absorber, 48 hours power reserve, domed sapphire crystal with antireflective
coating on both faces, smoked sapphire case back, integrated beige fabric strap.
