www.escapementmagazine.com delivers watch news and on a regular basis as well as comprehensive watch reviews.
In the dynamic world of horology new watches are frequently unveiled. Twice per annum, two trade fairs provide the vehicle for the great and the good of the watch industry to show their latest timepieces.
The Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie Genève (SIHH) takes place each year and is attended by the various watch brands owned by Richemont Group, together with Audemars Piguet, Richard Mille, Greubel Forsey, Parmigiani Fleurier, Girard-Perregaux, Ulysse Nardin and several independent watch brands.
Baselworld is the largest watch and jewellery fair and plays host to a huge number of brands, keen to dazzle with their latest offerings and eager to gain competitive advantage.
www.escapementmagazine.com has representatives attending both events, taking live pictures, hurriedly gathering notes and bringing watch news to its readers as quickly as possible. However, while www.escapementmagazine.com endeavours to bring news to its readers promptly it ensures that quality and high journalistic standards are always upheld.
Unlike some watch blogs, www.escapementmagazine.com does not write about all watches, but focuses on mechanical watches typically costing from £1800 to watches with seven figure price tags. These may be equipped with numerous complications or showcase mind-blowing mètiers d’art such as guilloché, enamelling and hand-engraving.
Within the world of high-end watchmaking, personnel often move from company to company. At www.escapementmagazine.com we seek to focus on key individuals, especially the artisans who enrich the esoteric world of haute horlogerie. Whenever possible we will report a key and instrumental figure, moving from one brand to another.
Often watch companies sponsor sporting teams, sports men and women, together with events in the world of music, theatre and the silver screen. Periodically our watch news may include interviews with famous individuals, providing a fascinating insight into how their timepiece fits in with their life. Moreover, on occasions there are synergies between the watch company and the team it sponsors e.g. the technology transfer between a watch company and a Formula One team.
Whatever watch news you are seeking, the watch blog, www.escapementmagazine.com is the first place to look.
