Edox – Fleet 1650

Saving World Maritime Heritage.

Hundreds of wrecks around the busy sea-lanes of Indonesia’s vast archipelago are particularly vulnerable and are in danger of being lost forever, due to looting, destructive fishing practices, ravages of time or high costs of surveys.

Edox has announced early 2017 it will underwrite a fascinating project to research, together with the Arqueonautas (company active in the research of shipwrecks and of archeological surveys) and Indonesia’s Bureau for the Protection of Cultural Heritage, for a survey of what is considered to be the final resting place of five ships of the Vereenigde Oost-Indische Compagnie, the famed Dutch East India Company. The fleet drawned in March 1650 onto a reef off the island of Kabaena in Southeast Sulawesi (Indonesia).

Junghans launches event model of Meister Pilot

From September 25th – 27th a special preview of the new Meister Pilot watch planned for 2016 was held at the site of the longstanding watch company. Guests received an in-depth insight into the company during an exclusive tour of the plant, as well as historic buildings that are not usually open to the public. To enjoy a flight over Schramberg in historic propeller planes, guests were first driven to the nearby airfield in extraordinary classic cars belonging to the Steim car collection. The terrace building of the watch factory in the idyllic Black Forest could subsequently be admired from a completely new, bird’s eye perspective. In the evening, guests and partners from around the world had the opportunity to admire the event model of the new Meister Pilot. “The special preview event in Schramberg is a further milestone for us in the development and internationalisation of the brand,” says Matthias Stotz, Managing Director of Uhrenfabrik Junghans.

Raymond Weil – a tribute

Raymond Weil – a tribute

A tribute to its founder

In tribute to its founder’s deep passion for aviation, Swiss watchmaker RAYMOND WEIL is proud to partner with legendary aviation manufacturer Piper Aircraft Inc. to present its first-ever pilot watch: the freelancer Piper.

Made of titanium and stainless steel, this 45mm freelancer features a mechanical self-winding chronograph movement with date and GMT functions, making it easy for all experienced pilots to read. The shiny blue minute and hour hands resemble the aircraft’s rotor blades while the GMT hand, with its red pointer, references a compass. The small seconds sub-dialat 9 o’clock is inspired by the attitude indicator and the openwork black leather strap completes the aviator look of the timepiece. With its tachometric bezel, 100-meter water resistance and 46-hour power reserve, flying enthusiasts can set off to conquer the skies and discover new horizons above the clouds. Each freelancer Piper watch will be offered in a special box, which will include a model of a RAYMOND WEIL-branded Piper aircraft. Read More
