SAN FRANCISCO — Apple has announced that Apple Watch, its most personal device yet, will be available on Friday, April 24, 2015 to customers in Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, the UK and the US.

According to Apple, Apple Watch is an incredibly accurate timepiece, an intimate and immediate communication device and a groundbreaking health and fitness companion.

“Conceived, designed and developed as a singular product, Apple Watch merges hardware and software like never before,” said Jony Ive, Apple’s senior vice president of Design. “In Apple Watch, we’ve created three beautifully curated collections with a software architecture that together enable unparalleled personalization in a wearable device.”

Apple Watch introduces “revolutionary technologies” including the Digital Crown, an innovative way to scroll, zoom and navigate fluidly without obstructing the display. The Retina display with Force Touch on Apple Watch senses the difference between a tap and a press, providing a new way to quickly and easily access relevant controls. And the all-new Taptic Engine discreetly delivers a gentle tap on your wrist whenever you receive a notification or message.

Accurate & Customizable Timepiece

Apple Watch can be personalized with watch faces ranging from traditional analog such as the Chronograph face, to the information-rich Modular face, or beautifully animated butterflies and jellyfish on the Motion face. Apple Watch enables millions of possible configurations. Swipe up from the watch face for Glances that quickly show you information you care about, such as the weather forecast, your current location on a map or the music you’re listening to.

Intimate & Immediate Communication Device

Apple Watch enables you to send messages, read email and answer calls to your iPhone right from your wrist. The Taptic Engine alerts you with a gentle tap so you won’t miss important notifications. With Digital Touch, Apple Watch allows you to communicate in all-new ways by sending a sketch, a tap or even the rhythm of your own heartbeat.

Groundbreaking Health & Fitness Companion

Apple Watch encourages you to sit less, move more and get some exercise every day. The Activity app provides a simple visual snapshot of your daily activity with three rings that measure active calories burned, brisk activity and how often you’ve stood up to take a break from sitting during the day. Apple Watch provides the detailed metrics you need during dedicated workout sessions for the most popular activities, such as walking, running and cycling through the Workout app.

Apple Watch is available in two different sizes, 38 mm and 42 mm, and in three distinct collections — Apple Watch Sport, Apple Watch and Apple Watch Edition.

Bearing the new codes of the rejuvenated Instrumento N°Uno collection, the de Grisogono Instrumento N°Uno Annual Calendar Mens Watch maintains its assertive traits and emblematic silhouette.

The annual calendar derives its name from its ability to run for an entire year without adjustment. Once a year, at the end of February, the calendar requires manual correction. With its streamlined design, the dial architecture has been completely updated in order to free up as much space as possible to highlight the month and small seconds counters. In addition, the arabesques of the 5, 6, 7 numerals have been removed. To ensure optimal readability, the day display has been enlarged. It features an asymmetrical effect based on a large date at 12 o’clock, month at 8 o’clock and small seconds at 5 o’clock.

The asymmetrical design is rounded off with the new integrated bracelet perfectly integrated with the 18-karat rose gold case. The final result is the masculine and sporty look of the watch.

Longines creates a watchmaking combination that has never been seen before

Longines Master Collection Retrograde Moon Phases.

Longines

ENLARGE

Longines has succeeded for the first time in bringing together the day, the night and the phases of the moon in a symphony of retrograde hands with a new timepiece that is named the Longines Master Collection Retrograde Moon Phases.

This exceptional watch reveals the intricate symphony of four retrograde hands whose movements are governed by the phases of the moon and the rhythms of day and night. In addition to displaying the hour, day, night and the phases of the moon, the functions of the Longines Master Collection Retrograde Moon Phases models include the day of the week at 12 O’Clock, the date on the right-hand side of the dial, a 24-hour second time-zone on the left-hand side of the dial and a small seconds at 6 O’Clock. These four functions are retrograde, in other words, the hands that display this information return immediately to their former position once they have completed their cycle.

The elegant and harmonious movement of the six hands under the eye of the moon makes this new creation totally captivating.

Longines is a member of the Swatch Group and is based in St. Imier in Switzerland since 1832. It has outlets in over 130 countries.

TAG Heuer Explores Luxury with The Aquaracer 500m Series and Offers a Glimpse Into The Future of Watchmaking with Its Monaco 24 Chronograph


TAGHEUER AQUARACER

Photo: TAG Heuer's Aquaracer 500M with blue dial and stainless steel bracelet.


Answering the call of diving enthusiasts who demand an exacting timepiece that is robust as well as refined, Swiss watch Brand TAG Heuer unveiled its new Aquaracer 500M series. Whether worn while swimming along the Great Barrier Reef or exploring the underwater caves of Turks & Caicos, these watches take serious sports-inspired functionality to a new extreme.

Water resistant to 500 meters, each model in the Aquaracer 500M collection is equipped with the definitive attributes of a high-performance diving watch, including a unidirectional turning bezel that ensures precise elapsed dive-time measurement. Highly luminescent markers on the hands and indexes, as well as an orange-tipped second hand, provide at-a-glance readability under water or in dim light. Additionally, the sapphire crystal and caseback are scratch-resistant and anti-reflection treated for optimum visibility.

To prevent damage to the watch and its movements, the Aquaracer 500M features an automatic helium valve that releases, upon decompression, any gases that infiltrate the watch during a deep dive. A fine-brushed, screw-in crown with double safety gaskets further protects the timepiece from water or dust penetration.


TAGHEUER MONACO

TAG Heuer also announced that it is continuing to push the boundaries of watchmaking with its Monaco Twenty Four Concept Chronograph, invoking the electrifying spirit of the world's most arduous sports car race. Introduced today at BASEL, Switzerland, this timepiece, in TAG Heuer's own words, features the same state-of-the-art engineering as the powerful GT cars that take to the 24 Hours of Le Mans circuit.

The Monaco Twenty Four Concept Chronograph's race car-inspired functionality is found in every aspect of the piece's design, most notably in the energy manifold that houses the Calibre 36 movement. Comparable to a GT car's cockpit cage, this proprietary steel-tube structure safeguards the mechanism, ensuring that the watch can better withstand shock.

The movement gains additional protection from a shock-absorbing composite filter material. Used in the racing and aerospace industry, this material insulates the Calibre 36 movement by directing vibrations into the composite filter, which absorbs and dissipates their energy. According to TAG Heuer, unlike a conventional timepiece's Incabloc system, which protects the mechanism only from external shocks, TAG Heuer's Dynamic Absorber insulates the movement entirely and the Monaco Twenty Four Concept Chronograph is able to withstand an impact of 24,000 G, the equivalent of a 65-foot fall, compared with the industry standard of 2,000 - 5,000 G, or a three-foot fall. These additional safeguards ensure the Monaco and its components will remain unscathed whether the wearer is skydiving from 15,000 feet or attending a very enthusiastic business meeting, explains the watchmaker.

The Longines Master Collection Moon Phases Ladies' Model


An exquisite marriage of watchmaking craftsmanship and feminine elegance.


Longines


Since its early days, the traditional Swiss watch manufacturer Longines has accustomed the world to horological products. The Longines Master Collection is yet another example of this craftsmanship. The success of this collection since its launch in 2005 has encouraged Longines to add new models: rose gold, yellow gold, black dials, new sizes, retrograde functions, and now an entrancing Moon Phases Ladies' Model. This model in The Longines Master Collection is a harmony between feminine beauty and watchmaking expertise.

The Moon phases ladies' model in The Longines Master Collection boasts a selection of tantalizing colors: a rich dark brown, a shimmering white and a feminine rose. This model will decorate the wrists of women who admire watchmaking craftsmanship on an alligator strap that subtly matches the color of the dial or a steel bracelet. The dial, made out of shimmering mother of pearl, enhances the luminous intensity of the piece. The heart of the watch, an L600 caliber, is a self-winding mechanical movement that beats at 28,800 vibrations per hour and has a power reserve of 42 hours. It assures the Moon phases function and the date at 6 o'clock as well as a double display for the day of the week and the month at 12 o'clock.

The various models in The Longines Master Collection offer a choice of a stainless steel or an 18-carat yellow or rose gold case with a transparent back. They are fitted on a bracelet to match the case, be it in stainless steel or 18-carat yellow or rose gold. Alternatively, there is a genuine leather brown strap with a folding safety clasp for the comfort of the wearer.

The Longines Master Collection Retrograde in Rose Gold


Longines


In order to honour its 175th anniversary, Longines has launched last year a timepiece bearing reflecting its horological heritage: This year the enhanced model of The Longines Master Collection Retrograde is also proposed in a 18 carat rose gold version. These watches, enclosing an automatic mechanical calibre developed especially for Longines, become the flagship model of a collection devoted to highlighting the horological traditions of the brand.

Over the years, Longines has dedicated numerous efforts to perfecting the mechanical measurement of time. A creator of horological movements, the Saint-Imier-based firm has nevertheless also assured that a touch of added refinement always forms a part of its creations. Longines has always regarded elegance as being the fundamental underlying principle in both the arrangement of the watch calibre and in the aesthetics of the final watch. Faithful to the 175 years of its watchmaking tradition, Longines has today realised a synthesis between its technical and aesthetic heritage in the creation of a new flagship timepiece representing its collection of horological tradition: The Longines Master Collection Retrograde.


Longines

Photo: The Longines Master Collection Retrograde in rose gold provides this model with 46 hours of power reserve. With 16 1/2 lines in diameter, 25 jewels and a 28,800 vibrations per hour beat, this first-class movement possesses more than enough resources to keep this retrograde model indicating the day, date, seconds and a second time zone on a 24-hour scale running smoothly.


The Longines Master Collection Retrograde forms part of a collection of sober, elegant timepieces, offering retrograde functions (day, date, seconds, second time zone on a 24-hour scale) in a movement with automatic rewinding,

The Longines Master Collection Retrograde combines a mechanical horological complication with simple usage. Apart from showing the time, its functions include a display of the day, set at 12 o'clock, a calendar on the right of the dial, a second time zone on a 24-hour scale to the left and a subsidiary seconds hand at 6 o'clock. These four functions are retrograde: that is, the hands indicating the information instantly fly back to regain their starting position once they have reached the end of their travel.
