Some of the highlights from this year’s SIHH are the new Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar: A powerful combination of modern aesthetics and prestigious traditional complication. The Royal Oak Chronograph is celebrating its 20 year anniversary with a new model certain to catch your attention.
Officine Panerai did not disappoint either. The new LAB-ID, a watch which uses advanced technology previously unknown to the world of watches, showcases unique solutions that have revolutionized its design and mechanics, making use of the infinite potentials of Carbon. The BMG-TECH™ is both harder and lighter than steel, and iis the first watch made from this innovative technology. BMG-TECH™ is a bulk metallic glass with a disordered atomic structure, obtained through a high-tech process, so that the atoms do not have enough time to become arranged in an ordered, regular structure. This technology also makes the watch 100% corrosion resistant.
