Meccaniche Veloci New Quattro Valvole 48 CLASSIC


by John Sealander

The New Quattro Valvole 48 CLASSIC is as Close as You’re Going to Get to Wearing a Ferrari on Your Wrist

Meccaniche Veloci WatchesThe Italians have always known a thing or two about speed and performance. Ferrari. Lamborghini. Ducati. These illustrious Italian brands are practically the definition of performance. Now, there’s a new high performance Italian on the scene: Meccaniche Veloci.

This luxury watchmaker found the inspiration for their latest collection in their own country’s racing heritage.

Meccaniche Veloci New Quattro Valvole 48 CLASSICThe new Meccaniche Veloci Quattro Valvole, introduced at Baselworld 2011, is a masterpiece of Italian engineering. This spectacular watch takes its name from the four-valve racing engines that powered the classic 308 GTB/GTS Quattrovalvole – named for the four-valve cylinder heads that the Maranello-based automaker pioneered.

The Quattro Valvole case is created using the same hardening process used in the production of high performance engines. A solid aluminum or titanium billet is turned on a lathe in order to produce four cavities in which four separate movements are placed.

Meccaniche Veloci New Quattro Valvole 48 CLASSICEach of these precise ETA 2671 mechanical automatic movements is completely independent. The result is a watch that can monitor four different time zones at once, or be used to track a variety of different racing or yachting events.

The Quattro Valvole is as big and bold as the racing engines its unique design evokes. The massive 48mm case is available in an aircraft grade 7075 aluminum alloy, as well as titanium, carbon fiber, carboceramic material and even solid gold encrusted with diamonds.

This case is equipped with a titanium crown for each of the four independent movements. Only the finest materials are used for straps, which are attached to the case by four titanium screws. The watch features a sapphire, anti-reflective crystal and is water resistant to a depth of 10 meters. You can wear the watch with either a traditional tongue buckle or a special titanium deployment clasp and the unique four time zone dial is available in several colors to suit your own personal taste.

This bold, masculine watch isn’t for everybody, but neither is a Ferrari. If you are interested in acquiring one of these spectacular watches for yourself, contact your Meccaniche Veloci dealer immediately and reserve your Quattro Valvole today.

Louis Erard Excellence Line


by Meehna Goldsmith

Louis Erard WatchesI admit I wasn’t all that familiar with the brand Louis Erard, but it isn’t a new kid on the block by any means. It actually has quite a history, dating from 1931 and even crossed the threshold of producing 100,000 watches in 2008, which was a banner year. While many companies merely case up watches using ready-made movements, Louis Erard does not. Though it isn’t a movement maker, 2008 saw the unveiling of their own in-house power reserve module. To show its commitment to classical horology, Louis Erard only produces mechanical watches, but it’s the hand-wound watches that are a favorite and therefore these get the privilege of the modules.

Louis Erard Excellence CollectionThis year the company, located in Le Noirmont, is having a birthday and what better way to celebrate than to give yourself and your customers a present. In honor of its 80th year, the brand has added Excellence to its portfolio, launching it at Baselworld 2011. With the addition of this line, Louis Erard now has a total of four collections: Excellence, 1931, Heritage and Emotion.

Jacques-Louis DavidNeo-Classical Inspiration

Exemplified by the paintings of Jacques-Louis David, the Louis Erard Excellence line takes inspiration from the Neo-Classical period with its elegance and clean lines combined with modern details to reflect current tastes.

It is marked by elements such as a round case, understated white dial, hour-markers and Roman numerals.

Choice of Styles

Louis Erard Mens 53 230 AA 11  Excellence Collection Steel Power Reserve Mechanical Hand-Winding WatchWithin the collection are seven models: five for men and, not forgotten, women get two to choose from. The men’s include the Power-Reserve display and Regulator or simple Power-Reserve variations, a chronograph with moon phases and 24-hour indicator, and time-only iterations. All are offered in a 42mm steel or rose gold.

The ladies receive a sporting chronograph that is sprinkled with diamonds around the bezel, giving it some glam and sparkle. In a tri-compax layout, the dial with a window at 4 o’clock comes in white or white mother of pearl, while the 36mm case is in red gold or stainless steel—the look completed with a white leather strap.

All of the models are attractive, but the men’s piece that stands out is the regulator. The off-center hour indicator at 12 o’clock harmonizes well with the large seconds dial at 6 o’clock, while the power reserve provides a nice balance to the Louis Erard insignia at 3 o’clock.

Though the men have more styles to place on their wrist, these are so classic and pure that I wouldn’t be surprised if women took these 42mm as their own.

Technicality in Reach

Louis Erard Excellence CollectionIf you want to purchase a good watch, there are a plethora of possibilities at your disposal. But, you might have to dig deep into your wallet to get the complications and quality you desire. Louis Erard prides itself on producing watches that not only contain good mechanics at affordable prices but also in-house designed modules, making technicality in reach.

Striking New POLICE Watches and Jewelry at Baselworld 2011


POLICE WatchesCome see the exciting new POLICE releases at Baselworld 2011 — including the DOMINATOR and VANTAGE-X Watch Collections and the STORM Jewelry Collection.

DOMINATOR

Take What’s Rightfully Yours

Come See the New POLICE DOMINATOR Watch at Baselworld 2011POLICE is not about being demure. It’s about standing up and standing out for all the right reasons. The DOMINATOR watch brings this attitude to life in a timepiece that makes no excuses.

The black on black look is showcased in patterned black leather, brushed gun metal stainless steel, black watch faces, and black engraving on the case itself. This rectangular watch features not one face – but two – one keeping track of the time, and the other a timer, ready to prove your worth to the world.

The individual watch dials are skeletonized, with a white background showing through to separate individual numerals and markers. Individual crowns on either side of each dial. The overall effect is nothing short of powerful dominance!

VANTAGE-X

Bright Lights of The City

Come See the New POLICE VANTAGE-X  Watch at BASELWORLD 2011Watches are the one piece that can bring an entire look together, and this stylish timekeeper from POLICE is the way forward this season.

In a wide variety of colors to match every mood, personality and fashion theme, the bold, rectangular face and all-purpose rubber strap go everywhere and with everything in your wardrobe. The watch face features a color scheme to match the strap, while the three hands turn around the linear hour markers.

Strong and personality-driven, this watch is the epitome of the POLICE philosophy.

STORM

Accessorize in Style

Come See the New POLICE STORM Jewelry at BASELWORLD 2011Giving the classic dog tag a more colorful look, POLICE plays with the light with the bright effects of spring and summer in this new variation on our popular theme.

Hanging from a stainless steel ball chain, fans of this striking accessory can now choose from a range of colors: translucent, blue, orange, yellow, gunmetal black, and dark blue metal. The frame in stainless steel gives the necklace a hard-as-nails base, while the acrylic is textured along the face.

Branded with the unmistakable POLICE logo, this accessory is one to watch.
