Please enjoy my next Baselworld 2013 update

Let me present you the next novelties that will be presented in Basel at the Baselworld 2013 starting the 25 th of April.  

Bulova Accutron Calibrator

Bulova Accutron presents the first ever automatic-watch that lets the wearer individually control its accuracy thanks to the External Fine Adjustment System (EFAS). No need for a watchmaker, the wearer operates the system by inserting a key at the 9 o’clock position to achieve the best possible precision. The EFAS-indication with retrograde hand is positioned opposite the date window.


Movement: Mechanical automatic, Sellita SW200, 26 jewels, External Fine Adjustment System (EFAS). Functions: Hours, minutes, seconds, date and External Fine Adjustment System (EFAS)


De Bethune DB16 Régulateur Tourbillon

The balance of the “DB2509” calibre oscillates at a frequency of 36,000 A/h, the tourbillon is built out of silicon and titanium. The classically understated dial provides readings of the perpetual calendar and spherical moon-phase indications. The steady, rhythmical beat of the jumping seconds embodies the very essence of the horological emotions procured by this new De Bethune creation.



Movement: Mechanical hand-wound, DB 2509 calibre, silicon/titanium tourbillon, 499 parts, 45 jewels, 36,000 A/h, 4-day power reserve; double self-regulating barrel, silicon/white gold balance, silicon escape-wheel, Côtes de Bethune decoration. Functions: Hours, minutes, jumping seconds, perpetual calendar, age and phases of the moon, power reserve and power indicator


Frederique Constant Ladies Automatic World Heart Federation

The Geneva based, privately owned company and Inès Sastre join forces to support the World Heart Federation with four unique timepieces dedicated to the Hearts of Children campaign. They feature a vanilla-coloured dial and a spectacular Double Heart Beat aperture at 12 o’clock. References to the partnership abound; the rotor is engraved with a special Hearts of Children decoration while the center of the dial has been guilloched with the World Heart Federation logo.



Artya Son of Sound

This watch promises to make a lot of noise. The new model is completely in line with the spirit of collections that are daring, slightly crazy and resolutely imbued with the DNA of Yvan Arpa and his ArtyA brand. Its name, its guitar head-shaped case, its pushers inspired by tuning pegs and its hands sweeping over metronome-type discs are all elements that give time a unique rhythm.



U-Boat The Uniqum

Italo Fontana, creative soul behind U-Boat, introduces a new a creation coupled with a new concept of “Individuality”. The 2012 Baselworld novelty “U-42 B & B” has been subjected to specific treatments to create a one of a kind masterpiece: The Unicum. It exemplifies the first attempt to propose a new model that at the same time is historic in design, but with each piece, bespoke finished, unique and highly individual to its wearer. A watch design crafted by hand with each unit finished in a different artisanal way for discerning consumers who each will have a unique watch.

  • No need to show a tourbillon? Discrete? Why doesn’t the Louvre put a sheet over the Mona Lisa? Knowing it’s there just isn’t enough.

    • No need to show it to everybody around you, yeah. There are dozens of watches who do that. You can still contemplate the tourbillon if you turn the watch around. So, technically, the sheet you mentioned, isn’t really there.

  • It looks like Bulova has an innovation , a bit novel , can you advise the retail price range .

  • The DB16 Régulateur Tourbillon looks great! Can you please tell us the Price of this Watch?

  • The DB16 Régulateur Tourbillon looks very interesting to me. If I am not mistaken, a lot of the features can only be seen when looking at the back of the watch. Very discreet, I haven’t seen that on many watches yet.

    Thanks a lot for the update!

    PS: Do you know how much the FC Heart Foundation watch will cost?

    • Thanks for your comment! I also like discrete watches, there is definitely no need to show a tourbillon…

      I do not have the price of the Frédérique Constant, butI will find it out for you …
