The cycle of the night star and the depiction of the constellations are an invitation to embark on a poetic journey through the shimmering nuances of white and blue mother-of-pearl, lit up by the fire of diamonds. This supreme sophistication extends through to the very heart of this new creation, the self-winding Chopard 96.25-C movement stemming from the expertise of Chopard Manufacture. The subtle stylistic echoes of the Roman empire have...Read More

La colaboración con TAG Heuer, también de LVMH, ha permitido a Zenith evolucionar El Primero y lograr pasar de una precisión de una décima de segundo a la ansiada centésima. Para ello se ha partido de una mecánica de doble regulador, uno para la función horaria y otro en exclusiva para el cronógrafo, este último funcionando con una frecuencia de 360.000 alternancias a la hora.

Hunter, cushion, barrel (tonneau): these are all everyday words that horology has adopted to describe the shapes of watch cases, but only the French term Galet (pebble) has become inextricably bound up with the Laurent Ferrier universe. Galet is the name of the first collection from the Manufacture, unveiled in 2010. Six years later, polished by time and shaped by experience, the ‘pebble’ is revealing a new facet. On the occasion of the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie, Laurent Ferrier presents its new model: the Galet Square Boréal. Its evolution has been gentle and gradual, like the curves...Read More
