The art of nature

Posted by Schwarzschild at 1:42:34 PM in Yvel (21)

Nature is often seen as the main if not the only source of everything artistic. It has endowed man with the ability to distinguish that which harbors beauty. The earliest art forms known are but plain sketches scribbled on cave walls. They often reflect natural subjects that our ancestors perceived as aesthetically deserving to be reproduced on their crude but perfectly preserved canvasses. Jewelry designer Yvel pays tribute to nature with its Rainbow Collection. This line of fashionable pieces was designed by Orna and Isaac Levy. Inspired by their love of nature, these pieces are made of fine gold, colored stones and stunning diamonds. It’s a real find for women who appreciate nature and fine jewelry.

Operating from several bases around the country, the air force makes the Dubendorf as headquarters during peace time. Traditionally, the service is composed of militia, including its pilots. However, the Air Force has undergone significant downsizing, it is currently a 1600-strong military organization. One of the service's main helicopter bases Alpnach has served as inspiration for master watchmaker Swiss Army's Alpnach Mechanical Chronograph Limited Edition. The base, which sits at 445 meters is also incidentally the number of pieces released for this edition. The Alpnach's design also reflects the features of the AS 532 Cougar helicopter. Like all things military, this timepiece is made sturdy with a pure stainless steel casing. It is also scratch resistant and water resistant up to 100 meters.

Time for the ladies

Posted by Schwarzschild at 10:21:30 AM in Omega (26)

Somebody once said grace is what sets ladies apart from women, the true female counterpart of the gentleman. The word ‘lady’ was once used exclusively to denote women of high social stature but it eventually came to be used to refer to all adult females. For the English, the “lady,’ for centuries, was used as a term of address for a woman whose name is not known. Today’s women, having retained much of the excellent qualities of their predecessors are viewed as deserving of the title. Omega continues to honor this tradition with its relaunch of the Ladymatic wristwatch. This timepiece is truly reminiscent of the ladies of the past albeit specifically made for today’s elegant woman.

Look Ma! No winding!

Posted by Schwarzschild at 9:48:37 AM in Breitling (27)

During the 1770s, a Swiss watchmaker named Abraham-Louis Perrelet developed the first self-winding mechanism for pocket watches. Working on the same principle as the pedometer, the mechanism was designed to wind itself while the wearer is in motion.  A 15-minute walk was required then to fully wind such watches to last for eight days. However, credit for the invention did not go to Perrelet as it was Hubert Sarton who drew the first accurate description of the watch for the French Academy of Sciences in 1778. Today, Breitling continues this legacy of creating fine self-winding watches in its Chronomat 41. This elegantly crafted watch makes use of the self-winding chronograph Manufacture Caliber 01 motor. Its lustrously designed case, which makes it a one-size fits all timepiece, comes in steel and rose gold. This watch is a fitting gift for men who want style and functionality.

In this technique, metal wires are used to hold the stone. Innovations in the stonesetting process continue to be developed, with capable designers seeking to further improve the craft. Memoire’s Memory Fit Diamond Eternity Band is the product of such innovation. The piece is mounted using hot extrusion, producing more durable and solid bands.

A Piece of Railroad History

Posted by Schwarzschild at 5:00:00 AM in Ball (25)

Railroad chronometers were first developed in the United States to ensure the sound operation of the country’s railways. These timepieces were used to make sure that no two trains will be on the same track at the same time. The efficacy of railroad chronometers led to their adoption as a standard for railroad personnel. However, the industry did not stop there, noted watchmaker Webb C. Ball, who started out his career as a time inspector, eventually established a far more uniform set of time inspection standards. Today, Ball Watches continues to focus on quality and excellence in creating its line of chronometers. The Chronometer Red Label GMT under the company’s Engineer II collection is a testament to such commitment. It features multiple innovative functions and a design perfectly suited to the demands of harsh environments. This timepiece is a fulfillment of the goals that Mr. Ball conceived more than a hundred years ago.

Timeless perfection

Posted by Schwarzschild at 1:00:40 AM in Baume & Mercier (23)

The roots of Swiss watches can be traced back to the 16th century, when goldsmiths and other such artisans were constrained to create new products owing to the prohibition of wearing jewels in public. The growth in the popularity of the new craft led to the establishment of the Watchmakers’ Guild of Geneva in 1601. The popularity of watchmaking forced artisans to settle elsewhere to avoid the already saturated Geneva market.  Swiss watches, then already known for their excellent quality, further increased demand. In 1830, brothers Louis-Victor and Joseph-Celestin Baume established the watchmaking company, Frères Baume. The brothers’ strictly adhered to the motto: “Accept only perfection. Only manufacture watches of the highest quality.” Today, Baume and Mercier continues this tradition, steadily making creations that comply with its commitment to providing excellent and affordable luxury watches. Its Clifton Collection showcases classic timepieces that reflect hundreds of years of excellent craftsmanship.  These are no ordinary Swiss watches, they’re Baume and Mercier timepieces.

Indonesian folklore holds some of the most mythical creatures known to man. Balinese legend tells of a great serpent called the Naga dragon.

Like a fish out of water

Posted by Schwarzschild at 1:00:00 AM in Breitling (27)

Despite the numerous modern day applications of the chronograph, the device was originally developed with only one thing in mind…to please a king. In 1821, King Louis XVIII tasked Nicolas Rieussec to invent a device that could determine how long a horse race will last. The contraption was the predecessor to the automatic chronograph developed in 1969 by Breitling in partnership with other firms. The first automatic chronograph was called Chronomatic. To this day, Breitling continues to drive innovation in chronograph design. The company’s Chronomat 44 Flying Fish has been proven to withstand the rigors of deep-sea diving, capable of working in depths of up to 1,650 feet. The Chronomat 44 comes with an all-black dial, encased in a pure steel body.  The watch is a must have for divers who value time.

Silver has long been regarded as the purest of metals. In ancient Europe, the metal was believed to harbor mystical properties, linking it to the supernatural. For centuries, silver was associated with everything that is good and pure. Wearing articles made of silver for good luck, prosperity and safety was a common practice in olden days. Folklore also holds silver in good light, as it was believed to ward off evil and provide protection. But modern science has lifted the veil of mystery surrounding silver. The metal has been found to have antibacterial properties and an excellent component for alloys. Luxury jewelry designer Charles Krypell has taken this noble metal and fused it with gold to create its Sterling Silver and 18K Gold Collection. Be it rings, necklaces or earrings, these timeless and unique pieces will surely make perfect gifts to be cherished for a long time.

For men only

Posted by Schwarzschild at 1:00:00 AM in David Yurman (31)

Many women call them brutes, insensitive or even unbearably devoid, but men have proven themselves invaluable in the shaping of society. The concept of masculinity continues to evolve, transcending both time and culture. Ancient people viewed it in terms of courage, associating the idea with folklore that depicted gods and heroes. In medieval Europe, the masculine was construed as that which is Christian and chivalric. With the passage of time, men eventually grew in sophistication, both in form and thinking. When it comes to gifts, men have developed a more discriminating taste. Unlike their feminine counterparts, they have become partial to simple yet stylish and highly useful items. David Yurman offers a wide array of gifts for today’s gentleman. The company’s Griffin Tag is an elegantly crafted necklace that prominently displays the mythical creature, Griffin, known to possess the esteemed qualities of men. A truly ideal gift for men who know what they want.
