Our cover for this issue features the enchanting CHANEL J12 X-Ray Electro Caliber 3.1. Its bright and bold visage reflects the colourful heritage of the watchmaking savoir-faire of the House of Creation. Its presence symbolises the growth of the Watchmaking Creation Studio of CHANEL as well as the immeasurable capability of the brand in creating unforgettable timepieces that stand the test of time.
Jacob & Co’s mind-boggling Astronomia watch is the platform on which the brand and internationally renowned contemporary graffiti artist, Alec Monopoly comes together for an outstanding collaboration.
The Tank watch and Cartier go hand-in-hand when one describes elegant watchmaking. Pure design distilled on the wrist, the Tank, since coming fore in 1917, made a name for being a necessary item in anyone’s wardrobe. Avant-garde during its inception, the characteristic rectangular shape of the Tank remains contemporary and relevant till today and there is no doubt that it will continue to be so for times to come.
Celebrating 21 years since its arrival, Corum releases the Bubble X Ray to honour both the coming of age of this popular icon as well as the work of the man behind this legendary timepiece.
We took the opportunity earlier this year to have a conversation with leaders from various brands including Seiko President, Akio Naito and Blancpain President and CEO Marc A. Hayek. In this issue we share their insights and the challenges these brands tackling during the pandemic.
Continuing our time-honoured tradition, we gathered a range of new watch launches to highlight for your attention. They include timepieces from Rolex, Seiko, Grand Seiko, Parmigiani and Rado. Dive into our issue to find out if your favourite brand is featured along with them!
