Horology as a Matter of Expression

The expression of time as the conveyance of numbers corresponding to the movement of the Earth in relation to the Sun has existed for centuries. This equation has been displayed over the years by sundials, sculptures, rock formations, pocket watches, wristwatches, and a host of other less conventional formats.

Art Piece 2 Edition 2

An expression of Art can often change your mindset and thus your way of thinking about your surroundings or environment.  The latest Art Piece from G.F. is not focused on time, but rather “The Time Remaining.” The largest feature of the watch is the Power Reserve indicator, and one must engage a small push button on the case to reveal the time, which is not visibly present on the watch face. While time is not finite, our time is, and this piece expresses the point graciously.

Ovale Pantographe

Creativity does not always need to be expressed in bold and provocative applications. The oval shape of the case immediately draws the eye, but it’s the “barley grain” pattern engraved on the watch face that holds one’s attention. The movement is constructed of pure rose gold and displayed beautifully through the exhibition case-back, but the true sophistication of the piece rests with the telescoping hands of the watch. As the hands rotate around the oval face, they can expand and contract to fit the non-circular shape.

Cellini Moonphase

The latest creation from Rolex is a masterpiece defined by its details. The intricately fluted bezel frames an exquisite white enamel dial dominated by Rolex’s latest moon phase complication. This expression of the moon’s lunar cycle is unlike any previously released by Rolex. A blue steel hand tipped with a crescent moon indicates the date symmetrically positioned around the exterior of the face. The Everose gold case comes adorned with a brown alligator strap secured with a folding crown clasp.

Rendez-Vous Watch

In honor of the 74th annual Venice Film Festival, JLC has created three limited-edition watches with only eight examples of each. Three art forms are expertly displayed on each watch, with hand painting on mother of pearl, guilloche, and gem-setting. Because three separate artisans must complete all of their individual work by hand, each of the 24 watches will amount to a completely unique piece of art, slightly different from the other eight.

World Tim

e Minute Repeater, New York Special Edition

In July 2017 the storied brand from Geneva displayed nine new creations that exemplified the expertise of their watchmakers. This example combined a world time complication with a minute repeater but also accomplished something more unique than simply combining these two complications. A different sound from the chiming mechanism was able to resonate depending on which time zone was displayed at the 12 o’clock, instead of the traditional application which only presented the home time zone on the hour. This unparalleled accomplishment required a proprietary 462-part movement that is also self-winding.
