A Trio of Ter­rific Time­pieces

Proof that all good things come in threes.

Virgin Australia Voyeur - - SIGN OF THE TIMES -

When it comes to lux­u­ri­ous, tra­di­tion­ally crafted time­pieces, not much sur­passes Jaeger-LeCoul­tre, whose new Po­laris Me­movox of­fers ev­ery­thing this 185-year-old Swiss pow­er­house is known for: straight­for­ward de­sign, orig­i­nat­ing in a his­toric model pow­ered by a me­chan­i­cal au­to­matic move­ment out­fit­ted with an alarm func­tion. Not rooted in any­thing his­tor­i­cal what­so­ever, Ressence’s Type 2 e-Crown Con­cept is char­ac­terised by for­ward-think­ing hy­brid tech­nol­ogy com­bin­ing the best of an au­to­matic me­chan­i­cal watch move­ment with elec­tronic con­nected tech­nol­ogy, form­ing a very real and very clever bridge be­tween the two. The wearer can choose how they would like to use the watch: fully me­chan­i­cally, with some elec­tron­ics, or us­ing an app to make pre­cise time ad­just­ments and add var­i­ous time zones. The Jung­hans Max Bill MEGA is an af­ford­able, pre­cise, self-ad­just­ing ra­dio­con­trolled watch jus­ti­fi­ably proud of its elec­tron­ics: its beau­ti­ful, min­i­mal­ist, con­tem­po­rary de­sign orig­i­nates in the ba­sic prin­ci­ples of Swiss de­signer Max Bill.
