In 1931, British Officers who were stationed in Colonial India would play polo in their spare time. However more often then not the crystal of the wrist watches would get damaged during the game.
Cesar de Trey, an influential businessman, who was a close associate of Jacques-David LeCoultre visited friends in India.
A polo player approached him, "Sir, I challenge you to create a timepiece that can survive a game of polo with its crystal intact."

This challenge founded the legend of the Reverso. A Patent for Reverso was filed on March 4, 1931: A watch capable of sliding in its base and of turning completely on its axis to turn the crystal inward.

Who will win the Ladies' Watch Category of the Gran Prix d'Horlogerie de Geneve

Competition is fierce and the watches are bedazzling. Impeccable craftsmanship, superb functionality and heart stopping aesthetics are just a few aspects portrayed by the watches of the Ladies' Watch Category at the Gran Prix d'Horlogerie de Geneve.

My favorite in this category is the Odyssey Lady Skeleton by Clerc. I love the combination of pink gold and titanium of the case. The dainty skeletonization of the watch is analogous to an intricate sculpture set high on the facade of a building, and yet the obvious attention to the minutest detail is like the perfections of nature. Wesselton VVS diamonds perfectly set on case and dial add subtle grace to this haute joaillerie watch. Hands and hour markers are gracefully fashioned from 18kt gold diamond. A bold 12 and 6 command attention and complete the look. Although alligator straps are available for this watch, I love the look of the soft satin strap.
Movement is automatic mechanical movement with a 42 hour power reserve.
This watch ,manufactured in 2009, is a well known and much admired addition to the Clerc Collection of fine haute joaillerie timepieces.

Hublot Official Timekeeper for Formula One Turns Red

You are quite correct if you perceive the dial of the Hublot King Power Formula 1 Monza Limited Edition (only 200 pieces) encapsulated in a slight reddish hue. This effect is cleverly created by a red tinged sapphire crystal. The sapphire crystal is not simply colored red by some clever chemical process, it is naturally that way. Of course, this is done all in the spirit of Formula One, the world's most popular motor racing event, where red is raw energy.
Hublot has chosen the historic Italian Race Car Circuit - Autodromo di Monza - to unveil its Formula One Luxury Watch. It is no wonder Hublot has chosen this particular circuit as it is the fastest circuit on the F1 calendar.

The energy powering the Hublot King Power Formula 1 Monza is an original in-house skeletonized Valjoux 7750 automatic chronograph movement. Original, because of the new skeletonization of the movement which allows for complete scrutiny of the movement. A sapphire crystal plate beneath the dial enhances the perception of depth. In addition, components comprised of cutting edge materials such as 48mm micro blasted black ceramic case; micro blasted black ceramic bezel with molded black rubber and 6 relief black PVD H-shaped titanium screws; carbon fiber bridge; tungsten carbide rotor (3 times tougher than steel); PVD titanium screws, black PVD titanium crown (with rubber inserts), black composite resin bezel lug and lateral inserts all add to the extreme resiliency of the timepiece. The watch strap is made of Nomex which is a fire retardant material - the same material used to make the race car driver suits. Red stitching on the side of the watch band compliments the bold red hand and hour indicators.

The furiously red hands are micro blasted red with white SuperLumonova thus enabling time display in the dark. Other features include a water resistancy of up to 100 meters and a power reserve of 42 hours.

A metal plated Formula One Logo is located at the 9 'o'clock.

Hublot has crafted the perfect watch in color, style, function and precision to represent a motor sport watched by millions.

From Outer Space to You

Arnold & Son, an English watch brand founded in 1764, has incorporated an unearthly component to its latest timepiece in its True Moon Collection: The True Moon Meteorite watch. Plainly visible is a dial comprised of rare meteorite matter retrieved from the Arizona dessert. The meteorite plummeted to earth thousands of years ago. This meteorite material has a high concentration of iron making it extremely hard. The 46mm wide case is available in steel or 18k red gold with matching hands and hour markers as well as a matching earth orb at the 12 'o'clock position. The moon phase appears at the 6 'o'clock position indicating the true phase of the moon, which is a cycle of 29 days, 12 hours and 44 minutes. A tiny date indicator is nestled at the 3 'o'clock position. This automatic calibre A1788 movement keeps perfect time.

Arnold & Son brings longstanding tradition into the manufacturing of this timepiece. After all this company has been in business since 1764 when John Arnold set up shop in Strand, London. The company was highly regarded in society and its timepieces were treasures given as gifts to kings and princes. King George III received a minute repeater-ring gift. The company joined the Longitude Act Competition. A fascinating historical competition about which I have written in depth.

Arnold & Sons co-wins the competition. In the 1770's Arnold's Son , John Roger, joins the company. He studies with his father's good friend A.L. Breguet. Responsible for the invention of the detent escapement as well as the manufacturer of the first pocket chronometer - N° 36, Arnold and Son becomes the leading supplier to the Royal Navy.
Arnold and Son chronometers assisted many British explorers, such as Cook, Phipps, Dr Livingston, John Franklin and Sir Ernest Shackleton to name just a few, on their expeditions.

To wear an Arnold and Son True Moon Meteorite timepiece is to wear a timepiece fusing the history of the earth with the history of man.
