The 2018 edition of the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) was brimming with technological innovation and vibrant designs.
JAEGER-LECOULTRE The Polaris Memovox is inspired by the original Memovox Polaris watch from 1968. This 50th anniversary timepiece has an iconic three-crown design: one for setting the alarm, another for the inner rotating bezel, and one for setting the time.
AUDEMARS PIGUET The Royal Oak RD#2, the world’s thinnest selfwinding perpetual calendar at just 6.30mm thick, marks a new watchmaking record for the company. The platinum case houses the ultra-thin 5133 calibre with perpetual calendar and a 40-hour power reserve.
MONTBLANC The vintage-inspired 1858 Geosphere watch is dedicated to the world’s Seven Summit mountaineering challenge, the holy grail of mountaineering adventures where climbers set out to ascend the highest mountains from each continent. It features a world-time complication with two turning domed hemisphere globes (the seven summits are marked with red dots), which make a full rotation in 24 hours.
ULYSSE NARDIN The Freak Vision is the first automatic watch in the Freak collection, incorporating a super-light silicium balance wheel with nickel mass elements and stabilising micro-blades to increase accuracy. The new 3D carved upper bridge is inspired by a boat’s hull.
A. LANGE & SÖHNE The Triple Split is the first mechanical splitseconds chronograph in the world that can measure additive and comparative times for as long as twelve hours. It comes in an 18-karat white gold case with a grey dial, in a limited edition of 100 pieces.
