Just lately, I realized firsthand to in no way once more take as a right the devoted features of my mechanical replica watches. Supplied the chance to sit down down in a watchmaker's bench and use the tiny instruments to painstakingly and precisely? attach wheels and jewels to your stripped-down baseplate, it turned extremely clear just how much focus, dexterity, and endurance — as well as plain previous horological expertise — was demanded to place collectively a caliber from scratch and also to make it hum. Naturally, I'd a educated watchmaker named Ines wanting above my shoulder, and my workbench was not in a few sterile atelier in Switzerland but with a balcony at New York's Cipriani Dolci restauarant, overlooking the rush-hour bustle of Grand Central Terminal's most important concourse.
The bizarre function, wherein users on the push were invited to get up near and private with numerous of Girard-Perregaux's talented — and youngest — watchmakers in one-on-one workshops, was held to start the brand's new print and on the internet journal, The new Facial area of Tradition: Eight Younger Watchmakers as well as the Artwork of constructing Time, and also the beginning of its Younger Watchmakers' Tour. Girard-Perregaux created the journal to toss a highlight on what Michele Sofisti, CEO of the Sowind Team, which owns Girard-Perregaux, believes are some of the company's biggest assets: the younger watchmakers on their own, who, since the journal reveals, even have a diverse number of interests and abilities, from performing rock 'n' roll music to mastering puzzles to bike racing. (Ines Patoz, the watchmaker I was paired up with, has been horseback driving given that age five. )
Girard-Perregaux set up its watchmakers' workshop within the balcony of Cipriani Dolci, overlooking Grand Central Terminal's primary hall. Watchmakers, l-r: Ines Patoz, Laetitia Pino, Raphael Jacquet-Richardet, Jean-Luc Borel.

Way too frequently models disguise their gifted watchmakers behind the curtains of their manufactures , Sofisti claimed. We've been proud of your youthful artists who share our enthusiasm for watchmaking with and so are excited to indicate for the planet who they are really. The new Experience of Tradition seeks to break faraway from the existing image lots of persons have with the craft. It is not an antique (and certainly not a lifeless) artwork; it truly is youthful, revitalized and regularly evolving, much like the persons driving it.
In addition on the hands-on workshops — which drew intrigued glances from normally jaded New Yorkers at its kickoff in Grand Central final 7 days, not forgetting at many other legendary venues in which the watchmakers quickly set up shop for image ops — the tour will function Girard-Perregaux's new products for 2012 as well as historical pieces in the brand's archives. Later this yr, G-P's youth movement — or, need to I say, its movement-making youth — travels to Beijing, Paris, and several other global towns.

The Salon Internacional de Alta Relojería (SIAR) took place in Mexico City last week for the seventh consecutive time. Fully contained at the luxurious Four Seasons hotel, this regional fair with a distinct Latin flavor attracted the attention of both high-powered executives of Swiss watchmaking and interested Mexican, Latin American and South American connoisseurs. Some of the CEOs present at the three-day fair included Armin Strom owner and CEO Serge Michel, who explained he was inspecting the market and talking to the interested public. There was quite a response to this first-time exhibitor, which probably explained the smiles to be had by both Michel and his head watchmaker, Claude Greisler. Carl F. Bucherer managing director Sebastian Marten, Cyrus co-founder Laurent Lecamp, De Bethune CEO Pierre Jacques, Stephen Forsey of Greubel Forsey, Louis Moinet founder and director Jean-Marie Schaller, Hautlence co-founder Guillaume Tetu, Jacob & Co. founder Jacob Arabo, new Montblanc global CEO Jer? me Lambert, Monsieurs Richard Mille and Romain Gauthier themselves, Slyde director Jorg Hysek Jr. , and Vacheron Constantin's prominent creative director Christian Selmoni were all present in Mexico City. New replica watchesA number of new timepieces found their way to Mexico City, making visitors to the sunny location among the first to see them. These included both the A. Lange & S? hne 1815 Rattrapante Perpetual Calendar and the Montblanc Exotourbillon Rattrapante, which came directly to Mexico from Hong Kong, where they had debuted at replica watches & Wonders. Hot on their heels was Audemars Piguet's new Royal Oak Offshore LeBron James, which arrived directly from the launch event in Miami. New 1815 Rattrapante Perpetual Calendar, fresh from Hong Kong. Erik Meza/SIAR Cyrus' Lecamp brought the brand-new, manually wound Kambys limited to 188 pieces, while Hautlence introduced the HLRQ 01 in rose gold in honor of the boutique brand's fourth showing at the SIAR: a 44 mm rose gold timepiece featuring a black DLC-coated titanium case band housing a manually wound movement. Louis Moinet debuted the Stardance, an automatic ladies' replica watch in a white ceramic case that has been preselected for the upcoming Grand Prix d'Horlogerie de Geneve. Richard Mille created a thirty-piece limited edition of the RM 30 just for the event, whose case and dial is adorned with the country's patriotic colors: its ultra-light carbon nanotube case bears the green, white and red hues of Mexico's flag, while green carbon fiber decorates the upper flange and the crown protector is a vibrant red. The case and dial of the limited edition RM 30 is adorned with the country's patriotic colors. Richard Mille Girard-Perregaux brought along its historic La Esmeralda pocket watch, which was the inspiration for a one-of-a-kind rose gold Bi-Axial Tourbillon with Three Golden Bridges for the Mexican market presented at the fair. And Corum announced a new partnership with Rebecca de Albar, a top model and TV presenter in Mexico, during the SIAR. Girard-Perregaux's Tourbillon Bi-Axial, whose engraving was inspired by the historic La Esmeralda pocket watch. Girard-Perregaux Mexican Only WatchVacheron Constantin, Sotheby's and the organizers of the SIAR also created something unprecedented: a private auction to sell a unique version of the Patrimony Traditionnelle World Time in a 42. 5 mm 18-karat rose gold case. The highly unique element aside from the world time display, which cleanly depicts 37 time zones, is the enameled map in the center: instead of the regular blue-toned dial, this version made just for the Mexican market possesses a map that is more green than anything else in honor of the Mexican flag. The pre-auction estimate was US$40,000, but after the bidding - which took place at dinner solely among those in the room - Sotheby replica watch head Geoffrey Ader finally hammered the replica watch for $80,000. "We are very pleased with this result," Ader confirmed the next day. SIAR AwardsThe elegant fair was crowned by the presentation of the SIAR awards, which took place at the end of the final day in the presence of hundreds of interested guests. In the hotly contested ladies' replica watch category, Jaeger-LeCoultre's Rendez-Vous Celestial just edged out Vacheron Constantin's Florilege. De Bethune took home the honor of up-and-coming brand of the year as signified by the DB28T Black Gold, a prize that visibly delighted CEO Pierre Jacques. Girard-Perregaux took home two awards on that evening: the Constant Escapement won both best concept replica watch and the "premio de la critica" (critics' choice). Cartier was also a double winner with the Rotonde Double Tourbillon Mysterieux taking home the jury-awarded "best watchmaker's value" prize and the visitors to the SIAR awarding it the "people's choice" prize. The best chronograph was hotly contested, but the Louis Vuitton Tambour Twin Chrono won out over the established competition, while Blancpain's Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe took home the prize for the best sports watch. In the high complication category, A. Lange & S? hne's Grand Complication edged out Blancpain's Tourbillon Caroussel. The winners of the SIAR Awards Erik Meza/SIAR The SIAR replica watch of the Year drew an interesting comparison: the final three replica watches in this category were Antoine Martin's Slow Runner, Omega's Seamaster Aqua Terra 15,000 Gauss, and the Swatch Sistem51. Here we have an exotic independent, an industry standard looking to improve overall quality and stability, and the anniversary Swatch, which is not only 100-percent made by Swiss robots, but also contains progressive synthetics and no lubricants. The Swatch Sistem51 took home the much-anticipated prize, proving the international jury's ability to think in all directions and appreciate various levels of watchmaking. Finally, Carlos Alonso - founder of the magazine Tiempo de Relojes and the SIAR - took the stage to present the Premio Especial (special award) of Tiempo de Relojes. This went to TAG Heuer's Guy Semon, who was unfortunately not present, for his contributions to the science of watchmaking.
