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.
