Urwerk unveils the Knight, a.k.a. the UR – 105M

  • The futuristic brand made a jump back in the Middle Age to invent the Knight, its last creation. Classical and smooth, the Knight, also known as the UR 105-M, has a domed sapphire glass, a aestetic protection on its rotative carrousel and a visual distinctive signature: a large bezel. It integrates in particular visible fixing points evoking the nails of the knights shields. Designed as a contemporary symbol of courage and endeavor, the Knight is available in two versions – gray or black Altin coated bezel – for an average price of 70’000 USD.

Hermès introduces “In the pocket”, a clever and original timepiece

  • La Montre Hermès has just shown us a really interesting timepiece, one that embodies the historical skills of the House and its new watchmaking capabilities with their very own movement, the H1837. The idea of “In the pocket”" is based on a model originally developed for an Hermès family member  in 1912 and gives you 3 possibilities of wearing it: as a pocket watch, a necklace or as a wrist watch where your wrist will be fully and comfortably surrounded with Hermès leather. The downside? Well, it’s a limited edition for only 24 happy customers around this planet. The upside? We really loved it!
