Baselworld SIHH 2008

For this year we have welcomed two different creative aspects of Cartier, one that is technical and the other aesthetic. On the technical side we have created a beautiful movement with a Geneva seal, which is an extraordinary tourbillon watch on a Ballon Bleu design. Talking about aesthetics, we have worked on different aspects of Cartier’s creativity. The first one is a beautiful collection called Animal Circus and the circus stops at Asia this year. We have selected three Asian animals – a Panda from China, and an Elephant and a Tiger from India – to make these watches exciting.

warovski is a family business established in 1895 and is now in the fifth generation. We still try to keep in line with the vision of our founder Daniel Swarovski, a master craftsman and visionary himself. Even today we try to respect everything that we do, and we are trying to be visionary ourselves. It is our way of celebrating tradition. We constantly strive to push the company forward.

We intend to focus on mechanical watchmaking of the 21st century. At this year’s Baselworld, we presented prototypes of the new Bathy V.2, indicating a return to our own traditions. The Bathy V.2 is equipped with the specific technology of the Favre-Leuba depth metre, which functions by means of pressure on a membrane whose composition remains confidential. It will be available in three models.

The Harry Winston Opus 8 watch is a bold attempt to artistically express the time concept in the most advanced and exceptional way. The design of the watch has been inspired by a vintage television set. Pin art games, used for creating 3D images of items pressed against them, suggest the time displays.

Nabuco’s youthful and modern elements are striking a chord with the future generation of collectors. With Nabuco we are rejuvenating the customer base – young males who have their own money and the buying power to spend on a variety of luxury items are our target audience. Raymond Weil’s brand followers are different and somewhat unconventional.

Our association with brand Pershing stems from the fact that yacht owners are our consumers as well. Anybody who is spending 10 – 20 million euros for a yacht is our target consumer.
