So it’s time for something completely different now! It’s weekend for us and probably most of our readers. Today we present you an easy to digest article. Going through our vast photo archive, we dug up the watch macro photo A to Z. Some unpublished material or re-editited images. Taking a few detours to fill in the few missing brand names in the alphabet. Maybe an interesting quest for the upcoming Baselworld fair.
Kicking it off with the A for A. Lange & Söhne. We didn’t want to zoom in too much as there is so much going on for this Datograph Perpetual Tourbillon.
B for Blancpain L-Evolution Tourbillon Carrousel, limited to 50 pieces. Note the crazy little details on the shock absorber!
C is for Cabestan and the Dragon Nera. If the movement that is constructed of over 900 parts isn’t impressive enough by itself already, the handcrafted dragon guard sure is.
D is for De Monaco, or Atelier de Monaco. Showing this unique edition up close. The Ronde d’Or Grand Prix de Monaco 1966.
E is for Emmanuel Bouchet and their Complication One. Placing essential parts of the movement on top of the dial in plain sight. Excellent for a watch macro.
F is for Fiona Krüger and her Skull watches.
G is for Greubel Forsey. Known for their inclined tourbillon movements.
H is for Hublot and we picked the Unico Sapphire Big Bang for this series of watch macro photos. The beauty is in the details!
I is for IWC and the new Da Vinci collection that was introduced during the 2017 SIHH in Geneva.
J is for Jaeger-LeCoultre and the Duomètre Quantième Lunaire. Looking at the double barrel movement.
K is for Kari Voutilainen. Another unique piece in this watch macro serie. The Kaen features an art decoration made by the legendary Japanese lacquer studio Unryuan which can also be seen on the dial of this unique piece.
L is for Laurent Ferrier. Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder! Unlike many watches this tourbillon on this Galet is neatly hidden for the wearer of the watch.
M is for MB&F and their newly launched horological machine No. 7 the Aquapod. Inspired by a jellyfish this symmetrical watch features a central tourbillon.
N is for Nomos and the Minimatik. Sometimes you become special by staying normal.
O is for Omega and the legendary Speedmaster. Up close and personal with a ’71 Speedy.
P is for Parmigiani Fleurier Pershing Tourbillon
Q is Quai Des Bergues. Yes, the Q is missing as a watch brand in our photo library so we picked the Quai Des Bergues by Czapek to fill in the Q.
R is for Romain Gauthier and the Logical One. Close up of the fusee chain used for the constant force movement. Note all the rubies that are used.
S is for Speake Marin and the J-Class Magister double tourbillon.
T is for Tag-Heuer and the Monaco V4, the worlds first belt driven tourbillon.
U is for Urwerk and the massive pocket watch UR-1001.
V is for Vacheron Constantin Patrimony Perpetual Calendar.
W is for water that was used to create the cognac that is found in this Armin Strom Cognac Watch. The liquor was taken from a 1762 bottle of Gautier Cognac.
X is for XIII version of the Harry Winston Opus using a unique way to tell the time. No less than 242 jewels have been used in this timepiece.
Y is for Yachting timer in this Ulysse Nardin. Unique feature is the bi-directional second hand.
Z is for Zenith and the Academy Christophe Colomb Hurricane Georges Favre-Jacot. Limited to 10 pieces only.
