Van Cleef & Arpels added two elegant new men’s timepieces to their Pierre Arpels collection this year: the Pierre Arpels Platinum and the Pierre Arpels Heure d’ici & Heure d’ailleurs. The former is a basic time only model and the latter features double jumping hours with retrograde minutes (in video above).
At Baselworld later this month, Christophe Claret will release a new men’s Maestroso timepiece (pictured above) with a traditional detent escapement. For reference most modern timepieces use a lever escapement. Christophe Claret will also launch their first ladies’ timepiece, called the Margo (movement pictured below).
This is the new Richard Lange Perpetual Calendar “Terraluna.” Terraluna means Earth moon, and signifies that this is no ordinary perpetual calendar. In addition to a regulator dial which separates all of the functions into independent displays, this timepiece also has a unique world’s first orbital moon phase display, not to mention an impressive 14-day power reserve. Furthermore, it has a constant force escapement with remontoir spring.

As part of our new lifestyle series, each month we will feature a collaboration between a fine timepiece and a related lifestyle product. For February, we chose two products from Japan: a Grand Seiko 44GS Limited Edition wristwatch in steel and The Yamazaki Single Malt Whisky Aged 12-Years.
