Citizen luxury watches

At Baselworld I had a chance to photograph three of Citizen’s Eco-Drive concept watches, all part of the CITIZEN Basel Project 2009. The Eco-Drive RING is designed to receive light from a solar cell situated around the edge of the case. The Eco-Drive DOME features the new Cal.H610 movement, a dome-shaped dial and a unique case. The Eco-Drive VITRO features an invisible solar cell that is spread throughout the glass, and a skeleton-type dial that is integrated with the case.

Jaeger-LeCoultre has released more images of their upcoming Hybris Mechanica à Grande Sonnerie three-piece collector’s set. As I mentioned last week, the set will include the new Hybris Mechanica à Grande Sonnerie, the Gyrotourbillon Mechanica and the Reverso Mechanica à Tryptique. Each set will include a beautiful custom made 1800lb Doettling safe, with Jaeger-LeCoultre logos. Jaeger-LeCoultre will begin delivering these exclusive luxury watch sets in September 2010.
