Our second day at 2018’s Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie revealed no fewer exciting discoveries than the first. Here’s Passions Arabia’s handpicked highlights from Day Two.
Audemars Piguet Royal Oak RD#2 Perpetual Calendar Ultra-Thin
It’s their thinnest ever, but makes no compromise on quality: 40-hour power reserve, and same frequency (2.75 Hz / 19’800 vibrations per hour) as calibre 5134
Greubel Forsey GMT Earth
The GMT Earth provides an amazing 360° view of our planet Earth all the way from the North to the South Pole. This technical feat was achieved by an original movement architecture in relation to the case shape and dimensions.
Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris Automatic
Features the iconic two crowns, one for time setting and one for the inner rotating bezel. The inner rotating bezel speaks to the diving-inspired nature of this timepiece, simplifying the act of tracking elapsed time.
Roger Dubuis Excalibur Aventador S
Skeletonized Excalibur Spider case, Ø45 mm, C-SMC carbon case with titanium container overmolded with blue rubber, fluted C-SMC carbon bezel with blue markings, titanium black DLC crown overmolded with blue rubber.
