IWC Schaffhausen Ceralume Concept Watch

IWC Schaffhausen has pushed the boundaries of watchmaking innovation with the introduction of their new concept watch featuring the groundbreaking Ceralume® technology. For the first time, IWC has created a fully luminous ceramic timepiece, marking a significant milestone in the horological world. This concept watch, designed in the style of the Pilot’s Watch Chronograph 41, showcases a unique and captivating aesthetic with a fully luminescent case, dial, and strap. The watch's dial and strap are both enhanced with Super-LumiNova® pigments, ensuring unparalleled visibility and a striking appearance in low light conditions. The dial's brass base is meticulously sprayed with a Super-LumiNova® solution before the additional markings are printed on top, creating a seamless luminescent surface. The white rubber strap, produced through an injection moulding process, is also infused with Super-LumiNova® pigments, contributing to the watch’s uniform glow. Learn more at IWC's website.

Audermars Piguet [RE]Master02 Selfwinding Limited Edition

The [RE]Master02 Selfwinding pays tribute to the original 1960 Model 5159BA, a Brutalist-inspired watch, and follows the legacy of the [RE]Master01 launched in 2020, which re-imagined a rare 1943 chronograph. This new limited edition of 250 pieces features an asymmetrical 41 mm rectangular case crafted from a new 18-carat sand gold alloy, launched earlier this year. The [RE]Master02’s "Bleu Nuit, Nuage 50" dial is a work of art, subdivided into twelve individually machined brass triangles, each decorated with a linear satin finish. These triangles are meticulously placed on a brass plate with minuscule feet and separated by sand gold partitions, making time reading effortless. The intricate design of the dial adds a unique geometric flair, combining different geometries for a visually stunning effect.

Equipped with the Calibre 7129, the [RE]Master02 merges vintage aesthetics with cutting-edge performance, embodying the perfect blend of tradition and innovation. Read more.

Isotope x Revolution

The Isotope x Revolution Mercury is the latest collaborative effort from Isotope, showcasing an extraordinary blend of original design and meticulous polishing techniques. This 150-piece limited edition watch draws inspiration from the multifaceted symbolism of Mercury, encompassing its identity as a liquid metal, a train, and the Roman god of positive tidings. The brainchild of Revolution's Wei Koh and Isotope founder Jose Miranda, this timepiece features a fully polished stainless steel case and boasts the first-ever mirror-polished convex dial. This abstract exploration captures the essence of Mercury in its various forms: the fluidity of the metal, the sleek lines of the American Art Deco streamliner, and the uplifting spirit of the Roman deity. Creating the mirror-polished convex dial was a laborious endeavour, with a rejection rate exceeding 50 percent. Over 350 dials were produced, resulting in 160 acceptable dials, of which 150 were finally assembled. Ensuring an environment free from dust and humidity during assembly was crucial to minimise the risk of contaminants on the delicate surface. Further details can be found here.
