Breitling celebrates an anniversary this year, notably 10 years of the Breitling For Bentley collection. To mark the occasion, Breitling unveiled three new models at BaselWorld, all feauring its in-house movement which ensures absolute accuracy in the product. Breitling has made some huge efforts in the last years to build its own ‘engines’. But the launch of the chronograph calibre ‘01’ was just the beginning. All the in-house calibres are now finally available for the Bentley collection.
For Chopard’s 150th anniversary in 2010, the Manufacture launched a limited edition, the L.U.C 1937 model, a mechanical tribute to the company’s proud watchmaking heritage. It has now introduced a new interpretation of this timepiece firmly rooted in the tradition of classically timeless watches. Inside the 18ct rose gold case, framing a satin-brushed silver-toned dial, beats the high-performance Manufacture movement, L.U.C Calibre 01.01-L (L.U.C 1.010). The history of the House of Chopard has been punctuated by a number of decisive moments. 1937, especially, was a pivotal year for the brand.
The dramatic dial of the new Ladymatic watches, available in deep brown or pure white mother-of-pearl, is decorated with an enchanting supernova pattern and set with 11 diamond indexes in 18ct gold holders. The polished hour, minute and seconds hands are also crafted from 18ct gold. A domed scratch-resistant sapphire crystal treated with anti-reflective treatment on both sides protects the unique dial. The Ladymatic has long been at fashion’s forefront with its feminine design and state-of-the-industry mechanics. And now, more than ever.
