 |  August 28th, 2015

By Gordon Henderson When one hears the word “Rolex,” a host of things come to mind. Among them: iconic design, lasting durability, state-of-the-art manufacturing and innovative thinking – in addition, of course, to cool things like Paul Newman, automotive sports, diving and more. Now, we have even more to be excited about- as we witness the first generation of timepieces emerging from the brand and housing the all-new Caliber 3255 (just unveiled at BaselWorld 2015).

Up Close with the All-New Cle’ de Cartier Collection

 |  August 25th, 2015

Earlier this year at the SIHH in Geneva, Cartier made another unprecedented move. The brand introduced an all-new watch line: Cle’ de Cartier. It is the brand’s first new preconceived round shaped watch since the incredibly successful launch of the Ballon Bleu. The line, designed to be unisex, features an unusual crown meant to resemble a key more than a round crown. In fact, translated in French, the word Cle’ means key. Mind you, it is not a key resembling the conventional sense of the word, such as a key that opens a door or starts a car, but rather a key that is an instrumental feature of the watch. Instead of being a round fluted crown in the classic shape, the crown…
