Porsche Design Launch New Custom Build Watches

Porsche Design Launch New Custom Build Watches

With the launch of its custom-built Timepieces programme, Porsche Design is starting a new chapter in the manufacture of wristwatches.

The idea of a

“sports car on your wrist” timepiece is founded on an entirely new production process. “To be able to offer, in series production, a watch with more than 1.5 million options, we had to make significant changes to the current ordering and manufacturing processes. These include the way in which a customer configures a personal chronograph to match a car,”

Van’t Hoff watches are subtle creations, more jewellery than watch. The discreet hands are hidden within the glittering spires that radiate from the jewels embedded in the black firmament. The oval shape of the watch softly curls round the wrist, with a sparkling diamond frame that enhances the face and the 3.78 carats of diamonds that make up the stars.

Surrey Clockmaker Creates Iconic Replica Of The First John Harrison Clock

Surrey Clockmaker Creates Iconic Replica Of The First John Harrison Clock

Following his experience restoring a client’s John Harrison clock, Surrey-based specialist clockmaker Matthew King has created what is believed to be the first ever replica of the earliest Harrison wooden clock, originally produced in 1713 by John Harrison, who later succeeded in solving the problem of calculating longitude while at sea.
To make the clock replica, self-taught clockmaker Matthew had no guides or instructions, but instead took much of his direction from the original Harrison clocks and his own research. The project was a true exploration of Matthew’s passion.

New Open Art Fair Duke Of York Square Chelsea

New Open Art Fair Duke Of York Square Chelsea

There will be thousands of objects at the  Open Art Fair from an eclectic and inter- disciplinary mix of dealers, to surprise and delight visitors who relish ‘intellectual and decorative shopping’.
 
This apt phrase comes from a new book (The Man in the Red Coat by Julian Barnes)  true story of three French grandees of the Belle Epoque (1880s and 90s), a prince, a baron, and innovative  surgeon  to the great and good:  all three dedicated  aesthetes, aware that the West End of London would be the most promising destination for a treasure hunt. .    .

Best Watches: Zenith Defy Zero G Watch In Blue

Best Watches: Zenith Defy Zero G Watch In Blue

Dating back to 1865, Zenith has been creating innovative time pieces, driven by the passion for developing accurate and reliable watches. In 1969 Zenith became the first brand to develop a high-frequency automatic integrated column-wheel chronograph that beats at 36,000 vibrations an hour.
The Zenith Defy Zero G watch is exceptional due to the revolutionary escapement which is designed to maintain both the escapement and balance wheel upright at all times, whatever the position of the watch so that it keeps better time unaffected by a change in the direction of gravity.
