U10 Tourbillion Lumière from Angelusu10_front_1920

 

A unique movement, the dial is housed separately, parallel to the tourbillion, a mechanical vision that took over two years to realize. Influenced by the brand’s multi-display travel clocks of the ’60s and ‘70s, the Angelus piece combines vintage aesthetics with a state-of-the-art tourbillion to create a rare modern timepiece. Featuring hours, minute, dead-beat seconds and a 90-hour power reserve indicator on the wristband, the U10 Tourbillion Lumière is a potential collector’s piece—only 25 of these limited-editions watches will be available.

Classic Fusion Chronograph Aerofusion from Hublot and The Watch Gallery

The first limited-edition timepiece to be released after Baselworld comes from Hublot and The Watch Gallery. The two brands have collaborated twice before and each time they have created successful watches that have captured the attention of horology fans around the world. Here’s their third piece, the Classic Fusion Chronograph Aerofusion, surrounded by a satin-finished titanium case, black ceramic bezel and titanium crown. Beneath the sapphire glass lies the skeletal watch face faceted with rhodium-plated indexes and hands, and littered with 59 sparking rubies. On the back each watch will be engraved with “Special Edition, XX/25” denoting which number the watch is out of the 25-piece, limited-edition run. The piece also comes with a 42-hour power reserve, 280 components and has a 5ATM rating—about 50 meters of water resistance.

Monaco V4 Phantom from Tag Heuer

This year’s most surprising timepiece from Tag Heuer may be the Monaco V4 Phantom, a matte-black piece that gives new meaning to the term incognito.
In the latest’s V4 edition, the watch casing and movement’s seven bridges are made from a micro-blasted, patterned Carbon Matrix Composite to give them a brushed appearance. The interior is also done entirely in black, with numerals, indexes and hands painted a dark grey and coated in anthracite Super-LumiNova for visibility in the dark. Even the alligator strap and closure get the blackout treatment. Carbon fiber is also used in the production of the timepiece, making it extraordinarily durable, shock-resistant and lightweight. A total of 48 jewels can also be found in the movement—the only part of the watch to have escaped the monochromatic color.

 

Diagono Magnesium from Bulgari

Diagono-Magnesium-Still-Shot-(3)

Unveiled in a world premiere in Basel, the first smartwatch from the Italian brand is a ceramic and magnesium model that is still in the prototype stage. The Diagono Magnesium stands out for its NFC chip, which Bulgari is touting as a security key that would allow users to securely and easily unlock a smartphone. Bulgari has stated its intention of launching a production model before the end of 2015.

Eventhough these models are stunning and breathtaking, they’re not the only ones. If you want to know more about 2015 Baselworld, give a look to Baselworld brand book.
