LOUIS VUITTON Tambour Slim Monogram Dentelle watch via 360 MAGAZINE

Tambour Slim Monogram Dentelle

New to the scene is the ultra elegant and feminine Louis Vuitton Tambour Slim Monogram Dentelle. And, as first introduced earlier this month on acclaimed actor and director, Bradley Cooper, the Tambour Watch’s Twentieth Anniversary is commemorated by the limited edition of 200 pieces, and a custom-made trunk in Monogram canvas.

Adorned with white mother-of-pearl in 2019, the Tambour Slim makes a comeback this year in a sophisticated, new iteration. This timeless, refined model pays tribute to the iconic Monogram flower, as first fashioned by Georges Louis Vuitton in 1896. Encrusted with brilliant-cut diamonds, the silvery blossoms sparkle subtly on the black-lacquered dial.

Enlightened by a diamond-set bezel, this feminine collection is available in two different diameters, 28 and 33 mm. It is equipped with a quartz movement and the innovative, Louis Vuitton-patented system of interchangeable straps, making it possible to infinitely customize the watch, by choosing from a selection of over one hundred different designs. Offering two white mother-of-pearl versions, this collection is enriched with black lacquer dials with stunning silver accents, and is set with diamonds. The dial is devoid of hour markers to accentuate the sophistication and femininity of the timepiece. Playing with contrasts, this watch is magnified with a diamond-set bezel: a creation defined by femininity and elegance. Other features include an interchangeable black alligator strap fitted with Louis Vuitton’s patented system, 50 Meters of water resistance, an ardillon buckle, and a stainless steel case.

Louis Vuitton Twenty Tambour inside 360 MAGAZINE

Louis Vuitton Tambour Twenty

Join us in commemorating Louis Vuitton’s storied history in watchmaking. The Maison’s Tambour Twenty celebration honors two decades of success with the Tambour watch, as highlighted by 24 of Louis Vuitton’s timepiece creations.

In 2002, the Maison unveiled a watch like none other: the Tambour. Bold and innovative, it was recognisable at a glance with its unprecedented shape, its round case sculpted from a block of metal, and its signature applied horns. This launch opened up the doors to the closed world of watchmaking for Louis Vuitton. Having become a symbol of Louis Vuitton’s watch collection over the years, the Tambour has seen different expressions over time, all the while staying true to the Maison’s DNA: a devotion to the art of travel, technological innovation, and exceptional craftsmanship.

Maurice Lacroix pontos s chronograph announced in 360 MAGAZINE

Maurice Lacroix – PONTOS S

Maurice Lacroix now unveils a new interpretation of its popular model, the PONTOS. Endowed with chronograph, day and date indications, sumptuous details and a scratch-resistant ceramic bezel, the PONTOS S Chronograph bridges two seemingly disparate worlds, elegance and sport, and unites them to form a cohesive design befitting any occasion.

The PONTOS S Chronograph features a sandblasted dial, offered in a choice of two colors: silvery white or dark blue. The hour and minute hands are partially open worked and lined with Super-LumiNova. Facetted and applied indexes denote the hours, shining brightly with just the merest suggestion of light. Positioned between each index and the minute track, a rectangular-shaped soupçon of SLN augments readability in dim light conditions. The aforementioned track uses a combination of crisp lines and red Arabic numerals, optimizing overall legibility.

At first glance, the dial appears to have just two counters, arranged along a north-south axis. However, closer examination reveals there is a small second’s display at 9 o’clock and a day and date display positioned opposite, all of which prove simple to read. The dominant counters comprise a 30-minute register at 12 o’clock and a 12-hour register below, each endowed with sandblasted centers and framed with snailed detail. The Maurice Lacroix design team have enriched the composition with numerous elements, presenting dial components at different heights and judiciously using colors in order to enrich the ownership experience.

The bezel is executed in scratch-resistant ceramic and is equipped with a tachymeter, a function that allows the wearer to determine the speed of an object over a known distance. This underlines the sporty character of the watch while simultaneously exhibiting a classical, retro appearance.

Maurice Lacroix has retained some design elements found on former models such as the elongated push pieces and the distinctive double-stepped lugs. The case juxtaposes satin-brushed and polished surfaces, delivering contrast and a notable sense of style. To the rear of the watch, a pane of sapphire crystal affords sight of the automatic ML112 caliber. Upholding Maurice Lacroix’s reputation for delivering high-perceived value, the movement is appointed with a combination of Côtes de Genève, perlage and sun brush decoration.

The model is supplied on a color coordinated, M-branded nylon strap with tone-on-tone stitching that is lined with luxurious nubuck leather. The PONTOS S Chronograph is also available with a 3-rows steel bracelet. Owners can modify the appearance of the watch courtesy of the Easy Strap Exchange system, swapping the strap or bracelet for an alternative, without the need for tools.

With its capacity to measure elapsed periods, or determine speeds using the tachymeter scale, the PONTOS S Chronograph is unquestionably sporty. However, this watch proves eminently elegant while remaining highly versatile, thereby befitting any situation. Quite simply, Maurice Lacroix has produced a watch that bridges two seemingly disparate worlds, elegance and sport.

Louis Vuitton introduced LV diamonds campaign via 360 MAGAZINE

LV DIAMONDS

Louis Vuitton continues its journey into the world of jewelry with the LV Diamonds collection.

This new chapter celebrates the LV Monogram Star diamonds and offers a unique vision of diamonds through unprecedented creations that spark universal emotions and transcend individual personalities. As symbols of commitment, these pieces of jewelry pay homage to our bonds with other people, both to loved ones and to ourselves. They are there to celebrate each facet of our lives. The LV Diamonds collection reaffirms our attachment to ourselves and others, and to those precious moments spent together. 

LV Monogram Star, A Revolutionary Cut 

The monogram flower, Louis Vuitton’s iconic pattern, resonates throughout the House with its timeless and bold design. With the LV Monogram Star diamonds, the motif confirms its status as a symbol of eternity. Innovation, tradition and technology, combined with creativity and jewelers’ savoir-faire, have inspired the Maison with this specific cut, named LV Monogram Star. Instantly recognizable with its fifty-three facets with pointed ends, it repreises the star-shaped monogram flower created by Georges-Louis Vuitton in 1896. A bold, graphic cut, with a brand new outline to make the sleek authentic jewels sparkle like never before. 

The Creations

The exclusive pieces in the LV Diamonds collection designed by Artistic Director for Watches and Jewelry, Francesca Amfitheatrof, showcase LV Monogram Star and brilliant diamond cuts. Rings, unisex bands with understated yet bold designs, earrings and pendants are all tributes to the Mainson’s signature aesthetic. The platinum, rose gold or half-aveed rings rekindle the Art Deco-style V with the Gaston-Louis Vuitton would have adorn his suitcases in the 1920s and 1930s. An even more precious version is enhanced with a central LV Monogram Star diamond, while another one dominates over other rings made of platinum, encrusted or entirely paved with diamonds. THanks to the Louis Vuitton jewelers’ expertise, this monogram flower is turned into a bezel, with tiny V-shaped claws embracing the curves and edges of this rare gem. Playful and graphic, irresistible bands complete the collection with a sparkling checkerboard that calls to mind the Damier canvas created by Georges Vuitton in 1888. Finally, a pendant and earrings, new daily essentials combining the must-have brilliant cut with a flower paved with diamonds let a double motif in diamond and gold resolute on the hollow of the neck or the ears. The new jewelry sets are highlighted by the harmonious use of the same colors and materials – the white and pink of gold, the purity of platinum and the intense shine of diamonds. These exclusive unisex cfreations were designed to be worn by themselves or in conjunction with other pieces, combined, stacked, or mixed or matched in an eternal dialogue. 

The LV Diamonds Certificate 

Louis Vuitton presents the first LV Diamonds certificate. This document reflects their commitment to transparently sourcing their gemstones. Provided with each LV Diamonds creation set with a central stone, this unique file lists each diamond’s weight, color, purity and cut quality. It also tracks its journey, from the country where the diamond was extracted until its arrival in its case, through the workshops where it was cut, polished and mounted. Each chapter in the story of an LV Diamonds creation is written down, thus carefully documented. In order to reinforce such a certificate’s security, Louis Vuitton uses blockchain. This modern technology, operated by Aura Blockchain Consortium – a platform dedicated to the luxury industry – allows for the recording and issuing of forgery-proof data thanks to decentralized storage. This solves many issues related to responsible sourcing, as well as the diamond’s durability since the platform provides direct access to the stone’s history, and its life cycle from its creation to its distribution.

Maharishi x Reebok

Reebok and London-based streetwear label Maharishi announce their first collaboration, bringing Maharishi’s military design ethos to Reebok’s heritage-inspired Classic Leather Legacy AZ (GW4452, $150), available beginning June 10.

Founded in 1994 by Hardy Blechman, Maharishi is defined by its ‘pacifist military design’ aesthetic and focus on deploying products that are practical, long-lasting, and offer an unforgettable presence. For their first collaboration with fellow UK brand Reebok, Maharishi have applied this approach uniquely to the Classic Leather Legacy AZ, a modern interpretation of Reebok’s timeless Classic Leather running shoe inspired by the archival Aztec II and adapted with contemporary shaping and material application.

“The Classic Leather Legacy AZ looks futurist and modern whilst retaining what makes it an iconic shoe,” commented Maharishi. “A big part of our design ethos is exploring duality, so this shoe – being a design classic infused with ultra-modern sensibility – fits well.”

The sneaker draws inspiration from United States military flight suits and uniforms, featuring a nylon construction based on historic military jackets, contrasting black ripstop panels in reference to the olive/black patch insignia used on traditional camouflage uniforms, and 3M reflective highlights for added visibility seated atop the iconic Reebok gum sole.

Gucci Watchmaking Fiftieth Anniversary

Half a century ago in 1972, in the watchmaking heartland of La Chaux-de-Fonds, Gucci Swiss Timepieces presented the world with a new horological design proposition—watches combining unparalleled Swiss technical know-how with the best in Italian design. In 2021, Gucci made its long-awaited debut in high watchmaking with a series of Swiss-made designs showcasing technological flair, elevated materials, and unique decorative artistry. Now, to mark the 50th anniversary of Gucci Swiss Timepieces, the House celebrates its next bold step into this mesmerizing universe.

Gucci Wonderland

In 2022, Gucci presents its second high watchmaking collection at the Gucci Wonderland event in Geneva. The mood of this kaleidoscopic collection is inspired by a magical fairground, where the most refined watchmaking complications appear alongside rainbow-like gems and celestial wonders. Entering this enchanted universe is like being catapulted onto a thrilling series of roller-coaster rides. Three new Gucci-designed watch movements are revealed:

Gucci 25H Skeleton Tourbillon: With its impossibly sleek, 8mm-thick case and captivating see-through dial, the Gucci 25H Skeleton Tourbillon arrives with a new Gucci-exclusive caliber flying tourbillon. Because the watch is designed around movement, it creates a fantastic illusion of the mechanics floating above the brushed and polished titanium bridges that cross the base of the dial. With skeleton hands adding a subtle layering effect, the Gucci 25H Skeleton Tourbillon is a feat of craft, style, and extraordinary skill, announced by a flying tourbillon at 6 o’clock. This complication regulates timekeeping while its sparse technical design adds a contemporary, decorative touch. Created in 100% recycled gold—in white and yellow bracelet variations—and in slate-grey titanium with a rubber strap, the Gucci 25H Skeleton Tourbillon becomes a retro-futuristic time machine for the wrist.

G-Timeless Planetarium: A pioneering addition to the high watchmaking genre, with its halo of 12 princess-set gemstones circling the dial, the G-Timeless Planetarium shines a precious light on time’s ever-changing view. It also conceals a showstopping power: the gem-set wheel is activated at the touch of a button, rotating around the dial in a gala of light. This delightful on-off control is made possible by a groundbreaking invention: the Dancing Hours Flying Tourbillon, a new Gucci-exclusive caliber with a hypnotic diamond star at its center. The arrow-shaped watch hands pay homage to high watchmaking’s heritage of fine technical detail, while each turn of the dial is a playful reminder of Gucci Swiss Timepieces’ dynamic fusion of new technology and timeless Italian style. The G-Timeless Planetarium is offered in white, rose, or yellow-gold variations with its rotating wheel of green tsavorite, blue tanzanite, or yellow beryl gemstones.

G-Timeless Moonlight: Gucci takes the carnival of time to the skies with the G-Timeless Moonlight. On the dial, a beautifully decorated moon waxes from a gleaming silver crescent to a pearlescent whole before beginning its celestial journey all over again. Created around the new, Gucci caliber GGV838.MP, the sheer technological precision of the G-Timeless Moonlight allows it to dictate its own time, following the 29.5-day lunar month. A feat of high watchmaking excellence, this timepiece only needs to be adjusted every 360 years. It is presented in pink gold and white gold, with a natural meteorite dial, where fairground planets spin and stellar diamonds shine. 

G-Timeless Dancing Bees

In 2022, Gucci presents new diamond-set additions to its family of G-Timeless Dancing Bees tourbillon timepieces. In homage to historical en-tremblant jewelry styles, where jewels were exquisitely engineered to move in rhythm with the wearer, 12 bees shimmer around the diamond-set dial as the wrist moves. Experimenting further, master craftsmen have heightened the natural, glossy sheen of two rare opal varieties—pink and green—to form rectangular ‘bricks’, from which they have created a miniature chevron pattern on a mother-of-pearl dial. The natural markings of the opals render each dial design unique, while the mirrored caseback allows a personal message to be engraved. Each G-Timeless Dancing Bees marquetry edition is presented either in white-gold and yellow-gold bracelet or in alligator straps variations. 

50 Years of Visionary Watch Design

To celebrate 50 years of Gucci Swiss watchmaking, Gucci Wonderland presents, for the first time, a journey through five unparalleled decades of Italian-born, Swiss-made design. For the very first time, the House has assembled a treasure-trove of modern-era watch creations, from the curious desk-clocks and watch diaries of the 1950s, to the handbag watches of the 1960s and semi-precious stone bangle watches of the 1970s. The golden ‘floating’ penny-dial watches of the 1980s, with circular dial designs in the House’s red and green palette with luxurious lizard leather straps, are a strong reminder of how, through every era, Gucci has seamlessly translated its classic fashion motifs into stylish watch designs. Iconic equestrian symbols, for instance, appear through decades of Gucci watch design in various creative guises. The futuristic 1990s steel watches, some with diamond-encrusted ‘G’ cases, illuminate the House’s pioneering move into fashion watches created with precious decoration and technical artistry. This very special Geneva exhibition underlines the Florentine luxury House’s visionary influence on watch design, from 1970 to the present day.

Gucci 25H 

Three new 30mm Gucci 25H quartz models are offered: stainless steel, stainless steel and gold plated, with a dazzling diamond dial design. 

Also revealed are two gender-neutral Gucci 25H glass dial designs in 38mm quartz variations. Whether in turquoise-blue or pink glass, each dial is designed to light up the wrist with a ray of opalescent color that changes tone with the light. 

Another dynamic, color-coded Gucci 25H design blends pink, blue, and green aluminum with a pink-brass dial. The caseback also reveals a very special touch—the Gucci exclusive caliber decorated with a special wave pattern.

G-Timeless

The G-Timeless with bee motif arrives in new editions, in 32mm and 38mm dial varieties, with a quartz or automatic movement and an 18kt yellow-gold, steel, or bi-metal case. The subtle dial decoration is offset by vibrant material mixes so that light reflects across the metal finishes. Designs include sun-brushed silver and gold dial options, as well as pink lacquer and black onyx dials. The black onyx dials form a dramatic, semi-precious backdrop of 15 golden bees, while the sun-brushed golden dials are accented with harmonious yellow-gold bee motifs. Case and strap variations include all-steel, all-yellow-gold, or bi-color yellow-gold and steel. Each dial is emblazoned with Gucci bees. 

Gucci Dive

A seriously sporty timepiece, the Gucci Dive is reinvented with bio-based materials, housing a Swiss automatic movement with 200m water resistance. Three new designs are presented, each with a case and strap in a new rubber-like material created from plant substances including oil and corn. The Gucci Dive is offered in matte white, aquamarine, and natural moss green.

Grip

In 2022, the signature Grip appears with a highly contemporary yellow-gold PVD dial case, in 27 or 38mm. With its warm, 1970s vibe heightened by an elegant black alligator strap, this new iteration blends eras of style.

Bianchet Tourbillon B1.618 Titanium-Carbon Limited Editions inside 360 MAGAZINE

Bianchet Tourbillon B1.618

Titanium-Carbon Limited Editions

Revealed during Geneva Watch Week at Barton7, Bianchet unveils two new limited editions of the Tourbillon B1.618 Openwork, which unite noble materials with a sporty and technological soul, and reflect the Franco-Italian brand’s statement to define a new essence of style in contemporary watchmaking.

Timeless design principles

By using the iconic Golden Number 1.618 and the work of Italian mathematician Fibonacci as design basis, coupled with a minimalist essential approach to watchmaking construction, Bianchet creates a collection of modern and refined watches, in which beauty and harmony come to the fore. 

Known as “The Divine Proportion,” the Golden Number 1.618, which underlies the beauty of the universe, is found in some of the most harmonious and everlasting creations in art, architecture, music – from Leonardo da Vinci, Le Corbusier, to Debussy – and in nature.

Fascinated by the capacity of the Golden Number, and its timeless design principle, to create beauty and harmony, Bianchet founders have chosen to immortalise its proportions in their horological compositions to build an everlasting legacy.

Italian by design, French in the details 

Created by the Franco-Italian couple Rodolfo and Emmanuelle Festa Bianchet, the brand lays the foundation for its inspiration through its faith in the purity of lines, its passion for contemporary design and architecture, coupled with a pure, intuitive sensibility nourished by Italian roots, and an innate attention to details.

The flowing lines, the sense of colour, the engineering concept behind every Bianchet timepiece are a perfect illustration of the Italian design approach and eagerness to create an object of desire, that is beautiful from its conception to its aesthetic execution. 

The tonneau shape of the case, the openwork design of its movement, the high-end finishing, illustrate the combination of Italian aesthetic sensibility and French sense of detail. Everything within the Tourbillon B1.618 Titanium-Carbon watch expresses refinement, pure lines and a natural sense of balance that makes it a watch of our time for our time.

Crafted with soul

Every Bianchet watch is designed, crafted, produced, and finished by hand entirely in Switzerland, including the strap and buckle. Each person involved in the creation of a Bianchet timepiece, from the founders, designers and craftsmen, to carefully selected partners, put their heart and soul into their work to produce the best of Haute Horlogerie in Switzerland.

The process of making a Bianchet watch is focused as much on quality and aesthetic, as on technical excellence, the main objective being to obtain a perfect balance between form and function. The art of Haute Horlogerie, mainly executed by hand, requires complete undivided attention; a suspended moment in time when the passion of the creator transfers to the object and conveys the highest level of quality.

Conceived for an active lifestyle, the slightly curved carbon & titanium case offers perfect comfort. The union of hand-finished Grade 5 Titanium on the bezel and back, and a light carbon fiber composite with an added titanium powder, which Moiré effect creates unique patterns on every timepiece, is underlined by soft vulcanized rubber seams which bring a sensuous feel. The perfect curves, the lightness and softness sensations, the high-end materials, create a unique horological experience.

Titanium Caliber B1.618

The movement of the Tourbillon B1.618 Openwork is the result of genuine aesthetic research. Conceived from the outset as a skeletonized movement, the Calibre B1.618 is all about a sensation of plumbing untold depths, a feeling accentuated by the curves, whose radii’s progression and interlacing are derived from the Fibonacci sequence. The symmetrical plays off the asymmetrical, in a balance that is natural to the eye, with a harmony that is intrinsic to the Golden Ratio.

Crafted from grade 5 titanium, that only master watchmakers are able to harness, the calibre B1.618 is able to withstand shocks of up to 6000G in all positions. The superposition of titanium arches and curves, in various shades of black, the floating skeletonized flanges which adorn the movement, play with light and transparency to create a sculptural architecture that is both strong and ethereal.


The tourbillon cage, the main plate and bridges, are all crafted from titanium and finished by hand, using mineral sands and natural fibres. Every wheel of the B1.618 gear-train is decorated by hand and coated with rhodium – today the most prestigious and expensive metal on earth.

Contemporary Haute Horlogerie

Thanks to peerless Haute Horlogerie techniques and the use of noble materials, featuring a sporty and technological soul, Bianchet timepiece collection reinterprets mechanical art in contemporary high-horology.

Uniting the sensory, cultural, mathematical, and mechanical, the new Tourbillon B1.618 Openwork Titanium-Carbon limited editions feature a hand-finished case in Grade 5 Titanium on the bezel and back, mixed with a light carbon fiber composite infused with a titanium powder, stylishly signed with two soft colorful rubber seams.

1.618 by Bianchet

Focused on re-engineering a timepiece by applying the Golden Ratio to contemporary watchmaking, Bianchet breaks free from the classical and traditional culture with which the iconic number 1.618 has generally been associated, and applies the Golden Ratio to a modern conception, using the materials, manufacturing techniques and performances of today, in the respect of centuries of high horology know-how.

Limited to 21 pieces each, the new Tourbillon B1.618 Openwork titanium-carbon blue and green editions stand as a modern and timeless testament to beauty in watchmaking, and bring a sporty-chic Haute Horlogerie timepiece to refined watch lovers in search of a unique horological experience.

MR-G SERIES

G-SHOCK EXPANDS PINNACLE MR-G SERIES WITH NEW MODELS IN THE CLASSIC SQUARE SHAPE OF THE FIRST EVER G-SHOCK

Premium Timepieces Feature 25 Individually Polished Components Assembled Precisely for a Timepiece that Showcases Craftsmanship

Casio introduces the newest additions to its pinnacle G-SHOCK MR-G lineup with the launch of the MRGB5000 series. With the new models, the MRGB5000D-1 and MRGB5000B-1, the trademark square shape of the original G-SHOCK DW5000 is elevated to provide shock resistance with the addition of premium materials and the artisan craftsmanship and quality that the MR-G series represents. The enhanced bezel and case have been constructed of 25 individual components with Sallaz polishing applied to each part prior to assembly, giving the watches a stunning, elegant finish.

The new MRGB5000 models pay homage to the original G-SHOCK, DW5000C, by retaining the iconic brick pattern and red outline of the original G-SHOCK dial design. The MRGB5000B-1 is crafted with a DLC coating on the case and band to deliver enhanced wear resistance and a sleek, all-black look that pays tribute to G-SHOCK’s signature brand color. Gold-colored ion plating on the buttons and screw-lock case back evoke the refinement of the MR-G series as well. The silver-colored MRGB5000D-1 is made with a titanium carbide finish to enhance the beauty of its bezel and band.

The bezels of the new timepieces are made from premium materials, such as COBARION, a cobalt-chrome alloy that is four times harder than titanium and is part of a 25-piece Multi-Guard Structure, specifically developed for the MRGB5000, to protect the module with superior shock-absorption by incorporating flat springs and resin buffers between the components of the watch. Additionally, Ti64 is used for the case and the band employs DAT55G, a titanium alloy about three times harder than pure titanium to further enhance the absolute toughness of the models.

In addition, the MRGB5000D-1 and MRGB5000B-1 boast premium G-SHOCK technical features including Bluetooth® functionality that allows the watch to be connected to a smartphone via the CASIO Watches app, MULTIBAND 6 Atomic Timekeeping, Tough Solar Charging, Super LED illumination, and more.

As part of the release, G-SHOCK has unveiled an exclusive collection page taking consumers through the features, which can be viewed HERE.

The new timepieces also come equipped with G-SHOCK technology including:

  • Shock Resistance
  • 200M Water Resistance
  • Sapphire Crystal
  • LED (Super LED)
  • 1 Sec. Timer (24Hr)
  • 5 Daily Alarms
  • Full Auto Calendar
  • World Time (39 Cities)

The MRGB5000D-1 will retail for $3,500 and the MRGB5000B-1 will retail for $4,000. Both models will be available for purchase this March at select G-SHOCK retailers, the G-SHOCK Soho Store and gshock.com.

Greubel Forsey – Balancier S2

Live from the Dubai Watch Week: Greubel Forsey unveils its Balancier S2 at Cipriani

The new Balancier S2 by Greubel Forsey made its entrance onto the watchmaking stage on 27 November 2021 in the middle of the Dubai Watch Week – an event, a date, and a timepiece to remember!

Drawing inspiration from the strengths of the Atelier’s iconic Balancier S, the Balancier S2 is another signature timepiece, placing Greubel Forsey firmly at the heart of twenty-first century Fine Watchmaking. Spirited, contemporary, in step with its times, and it’s the final outcome of a painstaking process of minimalism embarked on by Greubel Forsey: an imposing 46.5-millimetre titanium timepiece.

“Dubai Watch Week was the ideal platform for the launch of our new Balancier S². First of all, because of the exceptional relationship we have with our partner Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons, but also because of the quality of the event and the audience participating in it. A new chapter opens for Greubel Forsey.” says Antonio Calce, Chief Executive Officer and Executive Board Member.

Mohammed Abdulmagied Seddiqi, CCO of Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons announces: “The launch of the new Balancier S2 and of the Balancier S – the Ether is a momentous milestone between Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons and Greubel Forsey and the long-standing partnership between both entities. The first ever carbon Balancier S – the Ether, developed in collaboration with the brand, with a large titanium bridge limited edition is indicative of the progress made in watchmaking while commemorating the UAE’s 50th anniversary.”

The launch event organised by Greubel Forsey on 27 November at the Cipriani Dubai was redolent with success. The guests discovered a timepiece exuding tension, contrast, and strength. The legendary inclined balance wheel remains the beating heart of the piece, housed here in a new case replete with all-new finishes – new for this model, and indeed for Greubel Forsey.

For the first time, the central double-arched bridge has been openworked, epitomising the quest for something lighter, simpler, and uncluttered. The new titanium strap further enhances this ethos, blending seamlessly with the case – also made from titanium, as is the bezel with its polished sides. The latter has been shorn of the manufacturer’s traditional engraved values, while the barrel cover no longer bears the outsize ‘Greubel Forsey’ signature, but instead a modernist, circular pattern designed exclusively for the piece.

Only 38 of these new Balancier S2 watches will be produced per year, for four years: 22 with an anthracite grey caseback and 16 with a light grey caseback, accompanied by a plain or textured black rubber or titanium strap.
