Christopher Ward C1 Bel Canto

With one exception, all complications reveal their purpose visually. Chronographs, perpetual calendars, GMTs – every type requires a display. The exception to the rule are complications which convey information with sound: watches which chime the hour, the quarter or the minute. For the first time, this most elevated of functions has been made accessible by Christopher Ward, with the aptly-named C1 Bel Canto. Chiming on the hour, Bel Canto challenges the watchmaker in two ways beyond non-sounding complications. The first is to create an audible note from so small a device. The laws of acoustics are immutable, and the assembly which contains the striking elements must be able to deliver a ring that its wearer can hear, even on the wrist. The second challenge, one which does not apply to the chiming watch’s cousin, the alarm watch, is that it must produce a melodious note.

Girard-Perregaux Tourbillon With Three Flying Bridges

In 1867, Girard-Perregaux unveiled the ‘Tourbillon with Three Gold Bridges’ and an icon was born. The three bridges' functional parts are typically hidden from view but were made into an appealing aesthetic element. The Girard-Perregaux  Manufacture became known for making the invisible visible. This approach has been employed in several subsequent Girard-Perregaux models. With the advent of the new Tourbillon with Three Flying Bridges, the Maison perpetuates this design philosophy but with a few fascinating twists along the way.

A. Lange & Söhne Zeitwerk In 950 Platinum

The Zeitwerk is the first mechanical wristwatch that displays hours and minutes with jumping numerals. The time bridge is one of the most prominent design elements of its dial.

The new generation Zeitwerk features subtle design changes and a refined Manufacture calibre that enables a double power reserve of 72 hours. The model version in platinum features a rhodié-coloured dial crafted from solid silver.
