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).
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.
The main story for Cartier this year at SIHH was their new dive watch. But there was also another very interesting men’s watch that launched at SIHH along with the diver — the Tank MC Chronograph.
