Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda Chronor Slate

Dubai United Arab Emirates - November 14, 2019:    Parmigiani Fleurier is proud to present the Tonda Chronor Slate. This chronograph, created by the watchmaking centre's manufactures in 18 ct rose gold or white gold, is limited to 25 pieces of each.

Each of these twin timepieces has a jumping seconds mechanism, formed of a hand which makes one revolution per second.

The Eberhard & Co. “Sistema Magini” Chronograph Sells at Auction for 156,000 Euros

Dubai, United Arab Emirates - November 04, 2019:    The “Sistema Magini” by Eberhard & Co. in its “Mod. Mag.” version was a pole of attraction at the recent Bolaffi auction where it was assigned at 156,000 euros.   The famous Eberhard & Co. split-seconds chronograph, produced in the early 1940s and instrumental for the success of an epic Italian Air Force mission, was named after the heroic pilot to whom it was issued, Publio Magini.   The chronograph was, in fact, at the centre of a relatively unknown episode of the Second World War, the round trip Rome-Tokyo flight of 1942. In that period, the Axis powers were unable to communicate via radio because their secret codes had been deciphered by the Anglo-Americans. Italy, Germany ......read more

September 12, 2019 - Dubai, UAE One of Parmigiani Fleurier’s signature details is the iconic knurled bezel of the Toric Collection.

Memento Mori- A Celebration of Life

Corum presents a new generation of hand-painted, Vanitas-inspired timepieces. Dubai, UAE, April 20, 2019:  The image of a human skull is most commonly related to death and mortality. Yet when expressed in literature or other various forms of art, it need not seem as morbid as what most people perceive of it. A good example is Vanitas, a common art genre in 16th and 17th century Netherlandish art. Symbolic still-life paintings of skulls, withered flowers and decaying fruit depict the transience of life and certainty of death, but never without a touch of romanticism. The relationship between time and mortality has often been used as an inspiration behind dial imagery on watches, with skull imagery serving as a form of ‘memento mori’.  In the 2000s, Corum released ......read more
