This Popular Masculine Design is Making Waves Again

saint Honoré Paris WatchesThe sleek design and meticulous finish of the Worldcode Collection, introduced by saint Honoré at Baselworld 2012 earlier this year, has made these distinctly masculine timepieces one of the Paris watchmaker’s most popular models. Now the Worldcode name has even more to offer with the introduction of the all-new Worldcode Diving instrument.

The 43 mm Worldcode Diving model is the ideal timepiece to conquer the underwater depths. The rugged stainless steel case is water resistant to 330 feet, with a dial protected by a scratch resistant sapphire crystal. For diver safety, this watch incorporates a graduated unidirectional rotating bezel that provides a clear reminder of a diver’s last fifteen minutes of air.

The rotating aluminum bezel insert is available in four different colors: black, brown, navy or rose gold, with a matching sunburst dial of the same shade. To ensure that the dial is completely legible, even while underwater, saint Honoré has made the luminous Arabic numerals and stick shaped hour markers even larger than on the original Worldcode timepieces.

To ensure accuracy in critical diving conditions, saint Honoré has replaced the mechanical movement found in Worldcode automatic models with a precision Swiss-made quartz movement. Equipped with either a comfortable black caoutchouc strap on a deployment buckle, or a stainless steel bracelet, this watch is a serious tool for snorkeling and skin diving. A solid screw down stainless steel back and an easy to read three-hand configuration with a date window at 6 o’clock complete the contemporary design, making this watch ready for anything.

For over 125 years, saint Honoré has been providing fashion forward men and women with the timepieces they really want. The impressive new saint Honoré Worldcode Diving watch proves once again that saint Honoré has been able to use their unique blend of artistry and imagination to create something entirely unexpected. Diver watches are not new, but somehow this one is! You can see the difference on your wrist. If you’d like to make waves with your own saint Honoré Worldcode Diving timepiece, contact an authorized Saint Honoré dealer today and dive into a watch you can be proud of.

Haurex Launches Compactwatch Collection at Baselworld 2012


by John Sealander  

Introducing the First Watch So Thin
That It Fits Perfectly in a CD Case

Haurex WatchesItalian watchmaker Haurex has created an international sensation with their bold use of new materials and their unique ability to translate the latest fashion trends into affordable, fashion-forward timepieces. Now, Haurex has outdone themselves with their amazing new Compactwatch Collection, introduced earlier this year at Baselworld 2012.

The Compactwatch is so thin that it will fit perfectly inside a normal CD case. This watch is available in two sizes, two different shapes, and six different models for both men and women. Both the 37 mm version and the slightly larger 42 mm version are only 6.9 mm thick. This makes the Compactwatch one of the slimmest timepieces ever made.

The stylish Compactwatch features an aluminum case and crown with a stainless steel back. A durable mineral glass crystal protects the fashion forward dial and the case is water resistant to 100 feet. A precision quartz movement powers this innovative timepiece and both the round and square shaped designs can be equipped with either a silicon or natural leather strap.

Like many Haurex timepieces, the Compactwatch is available in a wide variety of rich colors, due to its advanced anodized aluminum construction. Even the packaging for this watch is completely original. All Compactwatch models come in a box that is exactly the same size and shape as an audio CD case. This makes it extra fun to give one of these surprisingly affordable timepieces as a gift. Imagine the surprise of opening what everybody suspects to be a compact disc and finding a beautiful and fashionable watch instead.

Haurex’s fresh and original approach to timekeeping is one of the reasons the brand has skyrocketed in popularity in recent years and is now available in more than 40 countries worldwide. If you’d like to be wearing something thin, fashionable, and fun on your own wrist, contact an authorized Haurex dealer today and reserve your own Compactwatch immediately.
