In this dedicated horology issue, we get up close and personal with a selection of intricate faces, shooting a host of luxury watches to showcase their fascinating dials – engraved, enamelled, painted, skeletoned, feathered – in larger-than-life detail; we talk to François Moreau about leaving a highly successful career in international banking to follow his passion, and create a luxury watch brand, Reservoir; and we explore how Longines is delving into its archives for the latest additions to its Heritage collection.
Elsewhere we travel to Paris to meet the multifaceted artist Richard Orlinski who has created watches in his signature style for Hublot, chat to three titans of sport about their favourite wristwear, explore Breguet’s historical links with the ocean as the new Marine Collection is launched, and get a Grip with Gucci’s new timepiece, inspired by the skateboarding community.
Our new columnist, Robert Johnston, is also on hand to advise on whether you should follow rules about what to wear on your wrist, or just style it out.
We hope you enjoy the issue.
