Oyster Perpetual Sky-Dweller
The Oyster Perpetual Sky-Dweller presented at BASELWORLD 2012 is the latest addition to the Oyster collection. With 14 patents the Sky-Dweller provides the information global travellers need to easily keep track of time: a dual time zone, with local time read via centre hands and a reference time display in 24-hour format read via a rotating off-centre disc visible on the dial. The Sky-Dweller is also equipped with a new calibre, the 9001, an officially certified Swiss chronometer entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex.
Chopard unveils at BASELWORLD, the L.U.C 8HF model. This exceptional timepiece houses the first high-frequency (8Hz) escapement to have successfully undergone the rigorous tests conducted by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC), a token of excellent precision and reliability. Entirely in keeping with the futuristic movement housed within, the 42 mm-diameter case of the L.U.C 8HF model is made of titanium. It is water-resistant to 30 meters and distinguished by its crown at 4 o’clock, also in titanium and bearing the L.U.C logo.


Jaquet Droz
Yonger & Bresson
De Vigny
Siviglia Sapphire Collection
Surprising the eye with its artistic prowess as well as its technical excellence, the Grande Heure Onyx takes a revolutionary step in luxury watchmaking. A disc of onyx, cut with great care by the master dialmakers at Jaquet Droz, brings out all of the magic of monochromatic black. It’s as if time had been completely reinvented. The minutes and seconds have vanished from the face of the watch until all that remains is a majestic hours hand, making its rounds once a day.
The French watch brand, Yonger & Bresson offers to its in-house movement a new model with a classic design: the De Vigny. The De Vigny features a 42 mm case in stainless steel, highlighted by a black hypnotic dial, vertically guilloché in the centre. Harmonious is the glowing progression of the hands that magnify the Arab numbers placed at the 4 cardinal points, and the flattering reflections of the steel pyramidal indexes.


Marco Bicego
Gebrüder Schaffrath
Siviglia Sapphire Collection
Vendetta The Princess
Marco Bicego launches a limited edition collection with yellow hand-textured gold confetti beads set with brilliant sapphires. The carefully selected sapphires form imperfect shapes in a range of soft sorbet shades with the occasional pop of bright color. Each piece within this very special collection is a one-of-a-kind jewel, handcrafted by master artisans who have selected individual sapphires and have carefully placed each stone within a harmonious gold setting.
Grace and beauty are a princess´ symbols. Beyond that fact these two symbols are the new characteristics of the latest and exclusive creation of Vendetta collection. A four-carat princess cut diamond crowns the ring, while another 30 diamonds in baguette cut are placed around it in a perfectly shaped ring made of platinum. The inlay made of corundum in vibrant red further accentuates its uniqueness.


Christiaan van der Klaauw
The Tread 2
The Real moon Series
Devon has unveiled at BASELWORLD 2012 the Tread 2 – follow-up timepiece of Devon’s debut watch the Tread 1. Tread 2 continues the use of the Tread 1’s patented movement technology employing an innovative system of fiberglass-reinforced nylon Time Belts. The belts are only 2/1000 th’s of an inch thick and are a technology appropriated directly out of the cockpits of airliners like the Boeing 747. The belts are mounted on a central chassis and driven by two extremely compact microstep motors.
With the Real moon series Christiaan van der Klaauw Astronomical Watches presents a number of masterpieces with a three dimensional moon at the six o clock position as a unique complication. Each Real moon Astronomical Watch features a rotating moon showing the actual phase of the moon. The moon rotates around the earth in 29 days, 12 hours and 44 minutes. Every 1,971,000 days the Real moon complication will show a deviation of only 1 day.
