These Novelties From The Geneva Watchmaker Are The Favorites Of The Editors

We have already presented some 90 watches from the SIHH 2017, the Geneva watchmaker, and more will follow. With this set of new models it is not easy to keep an overview. That is why the editors of Chronos, WATCH MAGAZIN and Watchtime.net have put together the novelties which are the best for them. Read here in alphabetical order, why these ten watches are the most beautiful and interesting.

# 1 Of The Best Watches From The SIHH 2017: A. Lange & Söhne 1815 Jahreskalender

Thomas Wanka, editor-in-chief of WATCH MAGAZINE:”The second year’s calendar from A. Lange & Söhne stands with a hand-held movement for Glashütter watchmaking tradition in its most classic form. With its 72 hours of gear reserve, it is necessary to raise it every three days, but to help its date display only once a year.”

Case: Red gold or white gold, 40 millimeters – Movement: L.0513, hand wheel – Price: 37.500 Euro

# 2 Of The Best Watches From The SIHH 2017: Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Diver

Rüdiger Bucher, chief editor Chronos: “Blue and green are my favorite colors. But since blue is so common in everyday life that it is no longer noticeable, green is the more daring and thus also the more exciting variant. At the SIHH 2017 there were some models in green, but the Royal Oak Offshore Diver from Audemars Piguet is my clear favorite. Due to the color, which by far does not appeal to everyone, this fashion diving watch from Electronicsencyclopedia gets a very personal touch for me.”

Case: stainless steel, 42 millimeters – movement: 3120, automatic – price: 19.500 euros

# 3 Of The Best Watches From The SIHH 2017: Baume & Mercier Clifton Shelby Club Cobra

Gwendolyn Benda, Transaction Editor Watchtime.net: “To be honest, it was more of a stumble than I first saw this chronograph. But this is often the case: things you like at first sight are happy to see you. The Clifton Shelby Club Cobra by Baume & Mercier, on the other hand, has such a peculiar retro style that one has to deal with it first – but then the impression remains the more strongly. At the Geneva Watchmaker 2017, La Joux-Perret’s Valjoux-based automatic 8147-2 chronograph was one of the more ground-breaking models. The 44-millimeter stainless steel model was a pleasant addition to the extremely demanding complications and new materials exhibited by the Richemont brands Contrast.Really cheap, however, he is not, his price is 7,450 euros.”

Case: stainless steel and titanium, 44 millimeters – Movement: La Joux-Perret 8147-2, Valjoux base, automatic – Price: 7.450 Euro

# 4 Of The Best Watches From The SIHH 2017: Jaeger-Lecoultre Master Chronograph

Melanie Feist, responsible online editor Watchtime.net:”The most exciting new feature is the for me Chronograph from Jaeger-LeCoultre. The 751G automatic manufac- turing caliber, in which the stop function controls a shift wheel, operates in the 40 millimeter stainless steel housing. But also optics and price can convince: a silver-colored dial with blue accents, that thanks to the Bicompax division of the counter for 8,250 euros sprays retrocharme on its own wrist. ”

Case: Stainless steel, 40 millimeters – Movement: 751G, automatic – Price: 8.250 Euro

# 5 Of The Best Watches From The SIHH 2017: MBF HM7 Aquapod

Alexander Krupp, editor Chronos: “The mixture of bionic design, technical requirements and successful detail solutions – such as the tentacle-shaped rotor or the rotating thrust outside the case – is simply fascinating. Max Büsser emphasizes, by the way, that the MB & F HM7 Aquapod is a sea-inspired design object and not a diving watch.”

Case: Titanium or rose gold, 53,8 x 21,3 millimeters – Movement: MB & F, automatic Price: 131,000 euros in red gold (66 copies), 110,000 euros in titanium (33 copies)

# 6 Of The Best Watches From The SIHH 2017: Panerai LAB-ID Luminor 1950 Carbotech

Melissa Gößling, editor of UHREN-MAGAZIN: “Housing materials were a big topic at this year’s Geneva Watchmaking. Panerai operates at the LAB-ID among others, carbon (fibers) to produce a durable housing and a deep black dial. Another highlight is the new caliber, which is largely lubrication-free. ”

Case: Carbotech, 49 millimeters – Movement: P.3001 / C, manual lift – Price: 50,000 Euro

# 7 Of The Best Watches From The SIHH 2017: Panerai Radiomir 3 Days Acciaio

Jens Koch, Editor Chronos: “No technical innovation, no exciting complication, not even a completely new design – but this Radiomir is one of the most beautiful novelties of the Geneva Fair for daily wear.”

Case: stainless steel, 47 millimeters – Movement: P.3000, hand wheel – Price: 9.500 Euro

# 8 Of The Best Watches From The SIHH 2017: Piaget 60 Years Altiplano 40 Mm

Nadja Ehrlich, Transaction Editor Volontärin Watchtime.net: “Since the Geneva watchmaking show has featured a large number of sporty models, the elegant Piaget Altiplano has hit my eye. I am convinced by the combination of the classic design elements of a two-time watch with the bright dial colors and the matching leather strap. There are three variants of the model, which have either a blue, green or anthracite dial. The 40 mm housing is made of rose, white or yellow gold. The Dress-Watch provides the in-house automatic caliber 1203P. ”

Case: rose gold, white gold or yellow gold, 40 millimeters – movement: 1203P, automatic – price: from 25.500 euros

# 9 Of The Best Watches From The SIHH 2017: Ressence Type 1² Squared

Katharina Studer, online editor Watchtime.net: “Those who are looking for a reduced, extraordinary watch design are just right with the Type1² from Ressence . The revolutionary dial concept of rotating discs, hours, minutes and the weekday are displayed via Regulator-style discs. New are the pillow-shaped housing and an integrated fold-out lever on the housing base. If this is flipped out and rotated, the time and day of the week can be set. In the previous models the housing floor had to be turned. Thanks to the new lever mechanism, the housing height falls flatter. The technical basis of the stainless steel watch is a modified Eta 2824-2. Only the price of 17,500 euros frightens the ‘immediate purchase’. ”

Case: Stainless steel, 41 millimeters – Movement: Eta 2824-2, automatic – Price: 17.500 Euro

# 10 Of The Best Watches From The SIHH 2017:
Ulysse Nardin Marine Regatta Chronograph

Martina Richter, deputy editor-in-chief of UHREN-MAGAZIN: “The Marine Regatta Chronograph by Ulysse Nardin shows a real count-down function, which has never been implemented before. The solution impresses me as a test and technology editor. ”

Case: Stainless steel, 44 millimeters – Movement: UN-155, automatic – Price: 15.900 Euro
