by John Sealander  

The Horological Equivalent of the Perfect Little Black Dress

saint Honoré Paris WatchesSaint Honoré’s elegant ladies Opéra timepieces have been among the company’s best selling models almost since the day they were introduced. Now, this popular design has become even more desirable, with the seductive new Opéra Black Éclair, introduced earlier this year at Baselworld 2012. The intense contrast of the jet-black case and chapter ring with the watch’s brilliant, sparkling center and bezel is simply dazzling.

The magic of the Opéra Black Éclair is created by an exclusive new technique, called the Éclair Effect. This exclusive finish, developed by saint Honoré, gives the watch the dazzling look of high-quality pavé diamonds at a very reasonable cost. Never before has the look of pavé diamonds been so accessible to today’s fashion forward women.

The saint Honoré Opéra Black Éclair retains all the stylistic touches that have made this design so popular. The classic round case is still available in 33 mm and 37 mm sizes. You can still change the strap in seconds to suit your mood and wardrobe too. What is different about this Opéra is the sparkle. There is simply nothing else like it.

The beautiful dial is set with six genuine diamonds that enhance the glittering Éclair Effect. With the saint Honoré logo at twelve o’clock, a convenient date window between four and five, and a classic three-hand display, the total effect of this watch is like having a perfectly proportioned little black dress on your wrist.

The Opéra Black Éclair is powered by a precision Swiss-made quartz movement and is protected by a scratch resistant sapphire crystal, as well as a stainless steel case that is water resistant to 100 feet. The watch also comes equipped with a spectacular black satin strap that can be easily changed to suit the wearer’s taste.

For over 125 years, Paris-based Saint Honoré has been setting tomorrow’s fashion trends by developing innovative new ways to combine art and technology. The dazzling new Opéra Black Éclair may just be their most impressive creation yet.

Eterna Introduces New Adventic Automatic at Baselworld 2012


by John Sealander  

Inspired by a Classic 1960’s Design and Powered by
an Innovative New Eterna Spherodrive Movement

Eterna WatchesEterna has been making superlative timepieces for over 150 years from their home at the base of the Swiss Jura Alps. When other manufacturers abandoned the mechanical watch in favor of less expensive quartz designs, Eterna continued to produce its own movements in-house, introducing a waiting world to some of the most innovative advancements in watchmaking.

Now, Eterna has done it again, with the introduction of the spectacular new Eterna Adventic at Baselworld 2012. This groundbreaking timepiece is the first to incorporate an all-new, proprietary 26-jewel Eterna Calibre 3843 movement. Built around the revolutionary Eterna Spherodrive mechanism, the Calibre 3843 is the first automatic mechanical movement in the world to take advantage of the Spherodrive’s almost frictionless zirconium oxide ball bearing technology. The successful marriage of the Spherodrive mainspring barrel with an automatic winding mechanism has allowed Eterna to create one of the most accurate and reliable automatic timepieces ever produced.

The Eterna Adventic is not only one of the world’s most technologically advanced timepieces, it’s also one of the most beautiful. Eterna craftsmen took their inspiration from the classic Eterna Centenaire watches from the 1960’s and refined the design to suit contemporary tastes. The result is a quiet elegance that showcases Eterna’s ongoing mastery of the watchmaker’s art.

This spectacular 44mm timepiece is available in three models: stainless steel with a black dial, stainless steel with a white dial, or a special 4N rose gold edition limited to just 50 pieces. An inspired dial features a small running-seconds subdial between 9 and 10 o’clock, along with a date window and 24-hour GMT display at 6 o’clock. The watch is equipped with an anti-reflective sapphire crystal and fitted with your choice of a black or brown alligator strap and a practical deployment clasp.
