The Khaki Navy Pioneer Edition Limitée aims to be different. First for its functionality, as
Louis Moinet takes us 20,000 leagues under the sea with the Jules Verne Instrument III, a timepiece that sends us off on a voyage with Captain Nemo. Inventive, technological and original all describe this chronograph. Inventive for the subaquatic-style monopusher and an astonishing function indicator (patent pending) inspired by chadburn ships' telegraphs. Technological because of its high-precision mechanism featuring ceramic ball bearings that ensure more efficient winding. Original with its black dial finished with "Côtes du Jura" guilloché, and a gold and titanium case with more than a hint at Nemo's Nautilus submarine. The monopusher at 2 o'clock also rates high in the originality stakes. A journey into time that fans of Louis Moinet will not want to miss! Proposed as a 365-piece limited series.
Introduced in 2010, the Tudor Heritage collection is home to the brand's iconic models revisited to meet the latest stylistic aspirations. The Heritage Black Bay is the perfect example with its curved black dial - a fabulous vintage touch -, striking burgundy bezel and snowflake hands, all three inspired by the iconic, early dive watches of the 1950s. The long, slender lugs of the original model have been supersized to match the contemporary 41 mm steel case that is water-resistant to 200 metres. The pink gold of the hands and hourmarkers adds a hint of nostalgia by suggesting the distinctive patina of older timepieces. With characteristic attention to detail, the same burgundy circles the insert for the winding crown, which is engraved with the Tudor rose.
2012 has brought the renewal of the Night Vision by Victorinox Swiss Army. First launched in 2003, the watch has been entirely revamped and was presented at Baselworld 2012. The new edition features a more urban, streamlined design, seamlessly incorporating into the case design the lighting features of the original model – LED light modules for the dial illumination, flashlight and emergency strobe. As of October 2012, this iconic timepiece also shines on the internet via the nightvision.victoriniox.com website, inaugurated to coincide with the market launch of this new model. Devotees of the brand with the Swiss shield logo will thus have the possibility of testing all the watch functions online. They will also be able to follow the exhibitions and events featuring the Night Vision around the world, as well as attempting to win one model per month. A fine example of what can happen when Swiss multi-functionality is expressed through a timepiece.
