Fortis Art Edition Mattern Watch Collection


by Meehna Goldsmith  

Fortis WatchesIn continual existence for over a century since 1912, Fortis specializes in watches for use in space, aviation and maritime. To hold their composure in these environments, you know these watches need to be tough.

Fortis proved the watches metal in 1994 by pushing it to the extremes of modern physics with endurance tests. This got the attention of the Star City Training Center, a Russian training facility for cosmonauts located in Star City, Russia. The organization chose the Fortis Official Cosmonauts Chronograph as part of their Official Cosmonauts’ equipment. They used the automatic watch during several missions while working inside the space station and also in the actual atmosphere of space outside the station.

From this collaboration came an evolution of the Cosmonauts watch, the Official Cosmonauts Chronograph Automatic Alarm, which was a world’s first of putting together both an automatic chrono with a mechanical alarm. So reliable are these Fortis watches that they are still the official supplier to the Russian Space program on board the ISS today as well as the MARS-500 mission, which started in 2010. Therefore, the company name Fortis, literally Latin for “strong”, lives up to its billing.

In addition to producing watches that can perform by land, sea, air and space with conventional good looks, the company has also ventured into their more artistic side by partnering with freelance German artist Michael Mattern. Though he did attend art school for a time, Mattern had to drop out due to family reasons and therefore is more or less self-trained. He developed a style that works off the basis of technical form and function logic in the school of constructivism. Considered part of the Fluxus movement, which attacked fundamental art and celebrated the creative idea, Dr. H.C. Bazon Brock called Mattern’s of the pictorial analysis of technical systems and constructive image worlds “diaphane constructivism as well as knowledge images.”

Fortis partnered with Mattern to come up with a tool watch that has artistic merit. As there are few, if any,tool watches that dare dress up artistically, the Automatic Art Edition Mattern stands in a class by itself and, in fact, could be considered part of the Fluxus movement itself.

Like all Fortis watches, the Art Edition Mattern, with a water resistance to 660 feet, is a rugged specimen capable of weathering the elements be it by land, air or sea. Since it hasn’t been officially tested in space, I can’t officially claim the watch space-ready, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it was.

The dial of the Art Edition Mattern has a Bauhaus sensibility infused with color, specifically pops of yellow and blue. The open construction shows the date ring and rotor, revealing functionality while also contributing to the aesthetic sensibility. On the bottom of the dial is marked “Limited Edition” marking the exclusive nature of this offering from Fortis, which will only produce 2,012 of these models.

Mattern aims to depict the reality of the times using Neo-Constructivism without falling into mainstream contemporary art, and he transfers this philosophy to the Art Edition Mattern. “Experts have argued that my work must be seen as the renewal of constructivism,” he says. “I am led to agree, as the basis for my work—geometry—has been the driving force of the great Constructivists of the past, while being the core element of all technical renderings we find determining our life today.”

In a 40 mm case and powered by an ETA 2824 automatic movement, the Art Edition Mattern comes with a screw down crown and the option of a rubber, calfskin or stainless steel band. Fortis’s partnership with Mattern proves that art can spice up the tool watch category.

Fortis Men’s Official Cosmonauts Automatic GMT Watch Collection


by John Sealander  

A Space Proven Watch with a 24-Hour Display

Fortis WatchesFortis has spent the past 40 years perfecting the space rated watch. As early as 1962, a Fortis Spacematic was selected for use by several of the original Mercury astronauts. In 1994, the sophisticated and incredibly durable Fortis Official Cosmonauts Chronograph Automatic became part of the regulation equipment handed over to cosmonauts at the Yuri Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Center in Russia when they completed their training. Even today, a Fortis watch is a common sight on board the ISS space station.

Since 24-hour time is so important for astronauts and aviators, Fortis developed a specially designed GMT watch just for them. The Fortis Men’s Official Cosmonauts GMT Watch is a masterpiece. This superbly engineered 38 mm timepiece features an easy-to-read four-hand configuration with a bright orange GMT dial that lets you independently track Zulu time or a second time zone. With its rugged matt finish 316L stainless steel case, screw down locking crown, and a water resistance rating of 660 feet, this amazing watch is ready for anything.

A precision Swiss made ETA 2893-2 automatic movement equipped with a fine timing adjustment and integrated shock absorber powers the Official Cosmonauts GMT. The special T-Swiss Tritium hands provide optimal night viewing and a bi-directional rotating bezel makes it easy to track events or monitor a second time zone. This individually numbered, space proven timepiece has a reliable stainless steel screw down caseback that has been embossed with the official seal of the Russian Star City Cosmonauts Training Academy. The Official Cosmonauts GMT can be equipped with your choice of a premium topstitched leather band, or a solid 316L stainless steel bracelet.

Fortis space watches are subjected to some of the most rigorous testing ever endured by a production timepiece before they receive the prestigious “Official Cosmonaut” designation. Unlike many of today’s “performance watches,” the Official Cosmonauts GMT isn’t just a clever marketing gimmick. It’s the real thing! To this day, Fortis remains the only timepiece officially endorsed by the Russian Space Program.

If you’re looking for a 24-hour timekeeper that has actually proven itself in space, look no further than the Fortis Men’s Official Cosmonauts GMT. To put one of these professional timing tools on your own wrist, contact your authorized Fortis dealer immediately. Supplies are limited.

Gevril 1758 Men’s Pocket Watch Collection


by John Sealander  

If you’re looking for someone who understands pocket watches, Gevril has been making them since 1758.

Gevril WatchesGevril has been making fine Swiss watches for more than 265 years. Jacques Gevril, the company’s founder, created his first chronometer in 1743, and by 1758, the company’s reputation had grown to the point where Gevril became Switzerland’s first official exporter of Swiss timepieces. Many of the spectacular Gevril timepieces created during the 1800’s are considered true works of art and are now on display in museums throughout Europe.

When Samuel Friedmann acquired Gevril Horlogerie in 2001, he was determined to keep this unique heritage alive. Production of Gevril timepieces, including the historically significant 1758 Collection, has been strictly limited. These fine timepieces are hand crafted at the company’s manufacturing facilities in Switzerland using the finest available materials.

Jacques Gevril’s original pocket watches were so well received that he was appointed Royal Swiss Watchmaker to the Spanish Crown. Luckily, you don’t have to be royalty to obtain a modern Gevril pocket watch. You just have to have the good taste to appreciate them.

Each Gevril 1758 pocket watch is assembled and finished to the highest standards by old world craftsmen. These fine luxury timepieces are powered by a proprietary hand-wind mechanical movement that is housed in a beautiful brass or sterling silver case. Traditional details include blued steel hands, Roman numbers, intricate guilloché engraving on the dial, and a free running sub-second dial at 6 o’clock.

These 49 and 50 mm hunter style timepieces feature beautifully engraved cases that open on both the front and back to reveal the spectacular dial, as well as the precision mechanical movement inside. Each of these fine Swiss made pocket watches is a masterpiece of the watchmaker’s art and serves as a testament to Gevril’s unique heritage.

Mario Andretti Wins the 1981 Indianapolis Trophy


by Erica Love  

Mario Andretti was honored for a lifetime of achievement by the National Motorsports Press Association’s Hall of Fame. As a teen, Andretti came to America from post-World War II Italy, and went on to reach the pinnacle of auto racing, garnering worldwide fame.

During a career that has spanned four decades, Andretti was a Formula One, Daytona 500 and Indianapolis 500 winner. He also won 33 times in IndyCar, and 19 in CART. Andretti remains the only driver to capture the Indy 500, Daytona 500 and the Formula One championships, and is one of only two drivers to win in Formula One, Indy car racing, NASCAR and the World Sports Car Championship.

73 and still one of the most recognizable names in sports, Andretti said being voted into the NMPA Hall of Fame was one of the highlights of his career. “You get that beautiful call and then it gives you a chance to pause and look back at everything that has happened to you, to count your blessings,” he said. “The greatest compliment is your work has been acknowledged, and this is what it’s all about.”

Andretti was awarded the traditional plaque and grey NMPA jacket. “Quite honestly, when some of these invitations still appear, it’s the ultimate compliment that can be paid to you,” said Andretti. “It’s because somehow they still are looking at your career after all the years.”

“I count my blessings every day because I’ve been so, so fortunate to have a long career and be able to meet so many incredible people along the way – and some of them are in this room,” he said. “I look back with no regrets whatsoever.… to be able to have a long career like I have… it allowed me to retire on my own terms.”

Gevril Avenue of Americas Women’s Super Mini Mother of Pearl Watch Collection


by Meehna Goldsmith  

Gevril WatchesThose who are in the watch business or students of horologic history know that Gevril is a brand with roots dating back to the mid 1700’s. Founder Jacques Gevril and his descendants were quite talented fellows, standing out from other watchmakers of the day. King Ferdinand VI was so impressed with Jacques Gevril that he appointed him Royal Swiss Watchmaker to the Spanish Crown. In fact, Gevril made his first chronometer, a watch that must keep very accurate time to qualify for the designation, in 1743, and a minute repeater, a watch that tells time through acoustics, in 1758. More than just a master of mechanics Gevril also gained a reputation for making fine dials.

As the centuries moved on, the Gevril brand faded… until watch veteran Samuel Friedmann decided he wanted to own it. Looking into the annals of history he discovered Gevril and its combination of traditional foundations that combined potential for modern relevance. He first presented the new incarnation of the Gevril brand in 2001, all of whose collections have been named in deference to New York City, one of the most spectacular places in the world.

The Avenue of Americas Super Mini Mother-Of-Pearl Collection takes its name from one of the grand streets that runs through New York City. Also referred to as Sixth Avenue, Avenue of the Americas has witnessed the growth of the City with buildings such as Macy’s department store, Rock Center and Radio City Music Hall taking up residence there.

The Avenue of Americas Super Mini Mother of Pearl collection comes in a delicate 22 mm rectangular case that features a blue or pink-colored mother-of-pearl centerpiece framed by stylized Salvador Dali-esque type hour markers, giving it an avant-garde look. The date window at 6 o’clock blends in seamlessly with the design yet remains at the ready for easy reference. 42 top Wesselton full cut diamonds totaling .45 carats are tastefully embedded on the horizontal sides of the case and lugs, adding just the right amount of sparkle to the Avenue of Americas Super Mini Mother of Pearl to be appropriate in either casual or more formal environments.

These two Avenue of Americas blue and pink mother-of-pearl dial models are limited to 500 pieces each and are matched with a corresponding blue or pink calfskin leather band. Reliability is assured with a solid Swiss quality quartz movement.

Gevril Avenue of Americas Glamour Women’s Watch Collection


by Meehna Goldsmith  

Gevril WatchesThe Gevril name has been around since the mid 18th century when founder Jacques Gevril made his first chronometer in 1743. Gevril went on to achieve many accomplishments, such as inventing the repetition dial in 1744 and being appointed Royal Swiss Watchmaker to the Spanish Crown under King Ferdinand VI. The brand continued to pass through the generations maintaining a reputation for making fine watches and clocks, including a specialty in enamel dials. To give you an idea of the quality, the Wilsdorf family, the founder of Rolex, chose one of Gevril’s pocket watches to put on display in their own museum.

However, Gevril watches receded to the background until 2011 when Samuel Friedmann bought the rights to the name in order to rejuvenate the brand to its former glory.

All Gevril collections pay tribute to what many consider one of the greatest cities in the world: New York. The Avenue of Americas models take their name from that landmark street that runs through the Big Apple. Otherwise known as Sixth Avenue, Avenue of the Americas has played host to many grand buildings including the Hippodrome Theater, Radio City Music Hall, and one of the granddaddies of them all, Rockefeller Center. It is also the street of choice for the Village Halloween Parade in Greenwich Village.

With such a grand billing, the Gevril Avenue of Americas Glamour women’s watches have a lot to live up to-and they do. In a rectangular stainless steel case that curves to hug the wrist, these limited edition watches have a distinct Art Deco styling reminiscent of the 1930’s. The dial features a date at 6 o’clock and characteristic Arabic script hour markers that punch up the pizzazz.

The Avenue of Americas Glamour watch offers a mother-of-pearl dial in pink, light blue and white along with matching colored Alligator-textured leather straps. To give some sparkle to the piece, the Avenue of Americas Glamour watch has top Wesselton full cut diamonds embedded in the case and lugs ranging from a total of .58 to 2.21 carats.

Gevril adds even more distinction to the women’s Avenue of Americas Glamour line by putting in an automatic movement, as more and more women are realizing the beauty and value of a mechanical movement.

Ferragamo Buckle Watch Collection to Debut at Baselworld 2014

Ferragamo Buckle Watch Collection - FG5060014

by John Sealander  

A modern reinterpretation of the traditional buckle inspires a new line of Ferragamo timepieces and eyewear.

Ferragamo WatchesThe humble buckle has always played an important role in Salvatore Ferragamo’s history. The celebrated shoemaker often incorporated stylish buckles into the designs of his iconic shoes. These stylized buckles, which often took the shape of Ferragamo’s trademark Gancino hook, quickly became associated with the brand. As the brand grew, these familiar buckles began to appear on purses, belts and other fashion accessories.

Now, a new chapter in the distinctive Ferragamo buckle begins with the debut of the all-new Ferragamo Buckle Collection. This special project celebrates the importance of the buckle as an ongoing part of the brand’s heritage by reinterpreting the role it has played in defining fashion trends through the years. This excitingly original collection of fashion forward eyewear and watches takes the buckle beyond its role as a clasp on shoes, belts, and purses, and turns it into a pure esthetic symbol.

Ferragamo Buckle Collection Ensemble

Ferragamo Buckle Collection watches made their debut at Baselworld 2014.

These distinctive 37 mm watches take their name from a stylized buckle shaped case that was derived from the iconic Ferragamo Gancino. This Gancino shape has been refined to become a beautiful cloche shaped buckle that mimics the form of Ferragamo Buckle Collection eye wear. The bezel is even available in tortoiseshell acetate, to match the frames of the glasses.
