JLC dazzling rendez-vous banner

A little known fact about Jaeger-LeCoultre: they were one of the first watch brands to make watches that catered to women. For a bit of context, during the 18th and 19th century women saw wrist watches as jewellery pieces rather than timekeeping tools. And this gave Jaeger-LeCoultre a chance to get a bit more creative. Thus began their journey honing their specialization in gem-setting. 

The Rendez-Vous collection, first released in 2012, remembers this specific part in the Swiss watch manufacturer’s history. The recently reimagined models embody the essence of femininity and flaunt such stunning, rich details. 

With their latest Dazzling Rendez-Vous they had expert artisans to ornament the timepiece with precious stones. It’s a rather slow and painstakingly meticulous process, but delivers the most beautiful and elegant results.

The prong, or griffes, is a kind of setting that maximizes the presence of each stone on the watch by using thin claw-like metal strips to hold each diamond in place. This allows the light to pass through the diamonds from every angle.

This dazzling timepiece comes in a 36mm white or pink gold case on alligator leather straps in either blue or taupe. It features a mother-of-pearl dial, floral roman numerals, and a day and night function at 6 o’clock.

The Philippine Watch Club says their passion for watches is what makes them tick. They offer a space where watch enthusiasts from all areas in the Philippines can share ideas and have in-depth discussions about watch components, complications and innovations. They are marking their 10th anniversary with a special limited edition of the Longines Heritage Military. Each of the 55 pieces of the limited run has a caseback engraved with “Philippine Watch Club 10th Anniversary 2010-2020” in the top half and a series number engraved at 6 o’clock.  The one marked 01/55 is on display at the Longines museum in Switzerland.

Caseback of Longines' special edition of the Heritage Military

Longines’ Heritage Military draws inspiration from an early 1940s military timepiece made specially for the British Royal Air Force. The timepiece they modeled it after belonged to Stanley Turner, a highly-decorated radiotelegraph operator.

Mr. Turner’s original Longines 1940s military watch on the left and the Longines Heritage Military on the right.

Much of the Heritage Military’s look remains faithful to the minimalist design of the original watch. It features the same oversized winding crown and uniquely shaped blued hands. The 38.5mm timepiece displays a silver, opaline dial with faint and tiny black droplets to mimic the oxidation pattern found on the original. No two dials look exactly the same as the black droplets were applied entirely by hand.

Owners have the option to wear a leather or nato watch strap that comes in the same shade. Both straps, as well as the required placement tool, are provided with each timepiece.

The Heritage collection commemorates Longines’ iconic timepieces by reissuing past models with updated watchmaking techniques and materials. Among the models in the collection is the Longines Heritage Classic, which is a faithful reproduction of a sector dial watch originally issued in 1934.

Longines 1934 watch Longines Heritage Classic
The Longines 1934 timepiece on the left, and the Longines Heritage Classic on the right.A sector dial is made up of two lines that slice the dial into four equal quarters, or sectors. Although not a common sight today, this design was a common feature on watches during the early 20th century.

Like the original, the sectors on the Longines Heritage Classic are surrounded by a satin-finished silver circle with painted Arabic hour markers at 12, 3, 6 and 9 o’clock. It also maintains small seconds on a subdial above 6 o’clock, and the original Longines logo below 12 o’clock.

Unlike the original, the reissued watch comes with more prominent markers, as well as brightened blue hands. It also comes with slimmer lugs and a slightly bigger stainless steel case measuring 38.5mm.

Driving this timepiece’s functions and endowed with a 64-hour power reserve is the calibre L893, which was especially developed for the timepieces of the Heritage line. This self-winding mechanical movement does not carry the date and enables the small seconds display to be located under the central axis for a design that is even closer to that of the historical pieces.

Longines HydroConquest full ceramic

Longines HydroConquest full ceramic

Earlier this year, Longines released a new set of models under its HydroConquest collection, inspired by the field of aquatic sports. Among them was the all-black HydroConquest.

The HydroConquest comes with features that meet the ISO standards for dive watches such as 300-meter water resistance, unidirectional rotating bezel and double security folding clasp.

What makes the HydroConquest a cut above the rest is that it’s made from ceramic — Zirconium dioxide to be exact, as denoted by the chemical equation (ZrO2) printed on the dial at 6 o’clock. This material has extremely high resistance to crack propagation and thermal conductivity, which helps keep the watch intact during dives even when there are changes in the environment.

The use of different textures on the watch such as a matt dial, a round satin brushed bezel, and a rubber strap lend the HydroConquest a dynamic appearance despite its monochromatic colorway. Providing a nice contrast to it are white Super-LumiNova® coated hands and indexes (blue in the dark), which also makes for superb readability regardless of lighting conditions underwater.

Jean-Claude Biver Chairman of Hublot and President of the LVMH Watch Division

Jean-Claude Biver Chairman of Hublot and President of the LVMH Watch Division

Jean-Claude Biver is an institution in his own right in the watch industry.

He got his start in the world of horology in 1974, when he joined the sales department of Audemars Piguet. For most people, this was an inopportune time to be part of the mechanical watchmaking industry. Quartz had upended traditional watchmaking, and now almost all makers were either closing shop or scrambling to develop quartz movements of their own.

But as the world would eventually find out, Biver was the type of man who thrived on challenges.

Jean-Claude Biver at his desk

In 1979, Jean-Claude Biver became Omega’s youngest deputy director.  It was in his time here he began to develop his views of using traditional mechanical movements instead of converting to quartz to save Swiss watchmaking.

Biver got to test his ideas when he left Omega so that he and his friend Jacques Piguet could manage their newly purchased brand: Blancpain. The brand had ceased operations for over two decades, and the only thing it had was a name that Biver and Piguet could build on.

Piguet was in charge of the production of their timepieces and Biver was in charge of marketing, introducing the tagline, “Since 1735, there has never been a quartz Blancpain watch. And there never will be.”

While the world around them was focused on quartz, Biver and Piguet produced and sold mechanical complications such as moon phases and minute repeaters. They focused on the value and craftsmanship of traditional watchmaking and in less than two decades, they sold Blancpain to the Swatch Group for a profit.

Biver returned to Omega as a director of international marketing, and under his supervision they began one of their most memorable partnerships yet: Omega and James Bond.

After a string of improbable successes, Biver was asked to take the helm of Hublot, a small Italian brand that had introduced rubber straps on gold watches. The founder, Carlo Crocco, knew Biver from when he launched Blancpain in 1983, and was a Blancpain distributor in Spain and Italy.

Jean-Claude Biver
Biver entered Hublot as the CEO in 2004 and made changes he believed would bring success to the brand. One of which was to switch from producing mostly quartz movements, to creating mechanical movements. The next was to move from 38mm cases to larger and more modern 44mm cases.

With these changes, Hublot entered Baselworld 2005 with a big bang. Quite literally. It was at this year’s fair Biver introduced Hublot’s most successful line: Hublot Big Bang.

Much like the very first Hublot timepiece, the Hublot Big Bang resembled a porthole and married unusual materials.  It was a hit, and in November of the same year, it won the best design prize in the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Geneve.

And that was just the beginning. Biver continued to bring forward the concept of “the art of fusion” in Hublot, resulting in some of the most unexpected collaborations and materials.

Jean-Claude Biver at Baselworld 2016 press con
In the watchmaking industry that spans hundreds of years, Hublot’s success has been an almost overnight phenomenon. And it is owed to the passion and dedication of the inimitable Jean-Claude Biver.

Although he has stepped down as an active executive of Hublot, Biver continues on as a non-executive president to look over the brand.  He also continues to tour the world, making sure more people gain deeper insight into the unconventional world of the Art of Fusion. His next stop? Metro Manila.

UPDATE | November 18, 2019: Details about Blancpain when Jean-Claude Biver bought it have been corrected.

Hublot Loves Art

Big Bang Sang Bleu banner
“The art of fusion” has been a guiding principle of Hublot, beginning with their first timepiece that featured a gold case and rubber strap. Since then, the watchmaker has released one daring watch after another, receiving design prizes along the way.

Hublot makes it a point to frequently collaborate with artists and designers from various fields who share the same visions and passions as they do. In 2015 the watch house established the Hublot Design Prize, an award which enables young artists and designers to garner the public’s attention by showcasing their boldness and creativity.

Discussing the importance of art, Jean-Claude Biver, chairman of Hublot’s board says, “Unlike technology, art never becomes obsolete. A painting by Matisse or Renoir may not be liked by the new generation, but it can never be obsolete.”

Hublot and Richard Orlinski

Richard Orlinski is a top-selling French contemporary artist represented by more than 90 galleries around the world. Orlinski is an advocate of art’s democratization which is why his works revolve around everyday subjects and are presented in public spaces. His sculptures feature bright colors and diamond-cut like facets, which take inspiration from pop art and industrial materials. It was their shared enthusiasm for innovation as well total design freedom that led Orlinski to collaborate with Hublot.

Fusing the world of watchmaking and sculpture, Orlinski incorporates precious metals with his artistic style. As seen in the Orlinski Classic Fusion 40mm in King Gold and in Titanium Pavé, the watches display a faceted case and dial that plays around with light and shade, similar to the French artist’s sculptures.

The same thing goes with the Aerofusion Chronograph 45mm in King Gold Jewellery and in Titanium Pavé. Once again, Orlinski’s characteristic folds are present but this time presented with an open-worked dial.

Hublot and Sang Bleu

Maxime Plescia-Büchi is a renowned Swiss tattoo artist and the founder of Sang Bleu, a multi-disciplinary company that encompasses a tattoo studio, magazine, clothing brand, and creative agency. Plescia-Büchi works mainly with black ink and uses architectural motifs along with ancient iconography.

Maxime Plescia-Büchi

Upon describing his collaboration with Hublot, Plescia-Büchi calls it a match made in heaven. He firmly believes that they are the epitome of the highest level of technical and creative innovation in their respective fields.

Plescia-Büchi designed the Sang Bleu models with the intent to showcase how the world of tattooing can be fused with the world of watchmaking. He does this through unifying precious materials symmetry and strong geometric lines as seen in the Sang Bleu One Click 39mm in King Gold Pave and in King Gold Blue.

Hublot Magic Gold luxury watch materials

With the best of both worlds—cutting-edge technology and traditional watchmaking—at Hublot’s side, the luxury watch brand is only limited by their imagination. Materials not withstanding, the pioneering watchmaker has dared to use what others would not, even going so far as to create new materials.

Magic Gold

Since it’s not possible to use pure gold due to its softness, people have mixed it with different materials to come up with more durable alloys. Hublot, in particular, found the balance between 24K gold and boron carbide, also known as ceramic. This resulted in Magic Gold—the hardest, most scratch-resistant 18K gold worldwide that can only be cut by diamond.

King Gold

Hublot also came up with another kind of gold: King Gold. It’s Hublot’s version of red gold, but even redder. They achieved the fiery look by upping the copper content. To prevent the oxidation that comes with the higher percentage of copper, they also added platinum into the mix.

Colored sapphire cases

Hublot Big Bang Unico Blue Sapphire

For decades, sapphire has only been used to cover the dial or the movement. Hublot is one of the first to manufacture sapphire as the material for a watch case and in several colors including yellow, blue, pink and red. The various tints are achieved by fusing different chemicals. For example, Hublot combined aluminum oxide with copper to come up with yellow. Replace copper with titanium oxide and the sapphire will be tinted with pink. Switch it out with iron oxide and out comes a nice sky-blue.

Ceramic

Hublot Big Bang Unico White Ceramic

As a material for watches, ceramic has been known for its scratch resistance and lightness. Having used ceramic as a vital ingredient for Magic Gold, Hublot didn’t shy away from experimenting more with the material. Just last year, the watch manufacturer patented their invention of not only vibrantly colored ceramic, but the most resilient as well.

Carbon

All of the strength and none of the weight, carbon fiber is one of the revolutionary inventions of our age. Hublot is one of the few watch houses to manufacture and use carbon fiber composites in their watches. For more intricate watch components, they utilize carbon fiber-reinforced polymer instead.

Come and see these watches and more at the “Hublot Celebrating Art of Fusion Exhibit” at the Greenbelt 5 Fashion Walkway, from November 12 to 15.

Classic Fusion Ferrari GT

An Iconic Duo

When Hublot and Ferrari announced their partnership in 2011, they made it clear that theirs would not be just a case of co-branding events and timepieces, but an intertwining of their activities.

Hublot has since been the official timekeeper and watch for the carmaker’s events, and the two brands have collaborated to produce over 50 timepieces to date.

The first was the Hublot Big Bang Ferrari Magic Gold. The 45mm timepiece was the first from Hublot to bear the prancing horse, and was also the platform used to introduce the watchmaker’s new proprietary material: Magic Gold. A combination of boron carbide and gold, the patented material is currently the only 18K gold alloy to be entirely scratch resistant.

 

Hublot Big Bang Ferrari Magic Gold
The Hublot Big Bang Ferrari Magic Gold is the timepiece that marked the beginning of Hublot and Ferrari’s successful relationship

In the year that followed, Ferrari unveiled the LaFerrari, the carmaker’s first hybrid vehicle and their “most ambitious project yet”. Soon after, Hublot revealed the MP-05 LaFerrari.

The unusually configured timepiece was designed to resemble the profile of the eponymous car. Its movement – stacked instead of spread horizontally – could pass as a miniature version of a car’s engine at first glance. Comprised of over 600 parts, it boasted a 50-day power reserve the likes of which had never been seen before.

The Hublot MP-05 LaFerrari has no dial. Time is indicated on the barrels located on the right side,
while the power reserve is indicated by the barrels on the left.

Four years later, in 2017, the partners commemorated the prancing horse’s 70th anniversary by launching the Techframe Ferrari 70 Years Tourbillon Chronograph. The limited-edition timepiece was designed by Flavio Manzoni, Ferrari’s head of design, and was made to look like the chassis of a GT Ferrari.  The movement that drove all its functions, the hand-wound HUB 6311, was developed entirely in-house by Hublot. The timepiece was well-received by watch enthusiasts and designers alike, and was awarded the prestigious iF Design Award in 2018.

The Techframe Ferrari 70 Years Tourbillon Chronograph commemorated the 70th anniversary of Ferrari’s prancing horse.

This year, Hublot and Ferrari have expanded their joint portfolio with the Hublot Classic Fusion Ferrari GT.  Inspired by the Grand Turismo spirit of “driving over long distances at high speeds in comfort and with style,” the timepiece is a departure from Hublot’s more angular aesthetic. The 45mm case – available in titanium, King Gold or 3D Carbon – gives the timepiece the illusion of concentric circles, and was made to resemble the dials on the Ferrari 1959 California and the air vents of the Ferrari GTC4 Lusso.

The timepiece was designed by the “Centro Stile Ferrari” (Ferrari’s internal design team) and outfitted with Hublot’s in-house UNICO chronograph movement. Awarded four patents, the movement drives the hours, minutes, seconds, date and flyback chronograph.

Sapphire crystal protects both sides of the movement, allowing a glimpse of the inner workings of the watch from the front and back.

 

Classic Fusion Ferrari GT
The new Hublot Classic Fusion Ferrari GT comes in King Gold, Titanium and 3D Carbon.

The Hublot Classic Fusion Ferrari GT is fastened to the wrist with rubber straps wrapped in Schedoni leather – a nod to the seats of the Maranello historical race cars.

What to expect from this iconic duo moving forward is difficult to predict, but Hublot and Ferrari fans can be sure that design and innovation will be at the forefront of their next project.

See some of the most memorable timepieces from Hublot at the Hublot Celebrating The Art of Fusion Exhibit on November 12 to 15 at the Greenbelt Fashion Walk.

Zenith A384 Revival 1

Back To The Beginning

Zenith A384 Revival 1

For the 50th anniversary of the El Primero, Zenith’s most emblematic movement, the watchmaker released the El Primero A384 Revival.

The 37mm steel chronograph, with its white lacquered dial and black counters, is an exact reproduction of the timepiece that introduced the first automatic chronograph movement to the world.

Zenith A384 1971 publication material
At the time of  its first release in January 1969, the El Primero was considered groundbreaking. Until then, no other automatic movement was configured to integrate a column-wheel and horizontal clutch, nor were other movements designed to beat with frequencies as high as 5 Hz. These features were what lent the timepiece the ability to measure elapsed time up to 12 hours and with an accuracy of up to 1/10th of a second.

Zenith was heralded as a pioneering leader in the watchmaking industry, but in a dramatic twist of fate, the first quartz movement was introduced later the same year.

The company was sold to a new owner in the United States who decided that the best way to deal with the quartz crisis was to focus on quartz. Instructions were given to shut down Zenith’s Swiss manufacture, and to sell all the equipment in it.

Charles Vermot, one of the watchmakers who had helped develop the El Primero defied the orders. Instead, he dismantled all the equipment used to produce the movement, and stored them in the company’s attic.

It wouldn’t be until a decade later, when Zenith was resold to Swiss owners, that the El Primero was revived. Thanks to Vermot stealing away the equipment, there was no need to re-engineer the production of a chronograph. He had also kept meticulous notes, which eliminated the need to repeat the research and development of the El Primero.

Through the years, there have been many iterations of timepieces that housed the movement. But the El Primero A384 Revival is the most fitting way to celebrate reaching the movement’s half-century mark.

Zenith A384 Soldier
Just like the original, the timepiece has a black tachymetric scale and a red central chronograph hand that doesn’t have Zenith’s signature star-shaped counterbalance. The subdial for small seconds is found at 9 o’clock, while the 30-minute and 12-hour counters are found at 3 o’clock and 6 o’clock, respectively. The chronograph functions are triggered by the same kind of pump pushers found on the first A384, and the date aperture is still found nestled between the 4 and 5 o’clock markers.

The only aspects of the 2019 model that are unlike the original is the sapphire crystal protecting the dial and used in the caseback, and the Super-LumiNova® that coats the hands and hour markers.

The Zenith A384 Revival is available with a rubber-lined leather strap, or a stainless steel ladder bracelet.
