When the next yearly WatchTime New York show wrapped up on Saturday, lots of attendees walked off with either a new watch on their wrist, or an idea for their next buy–or simply tuned to the horological high that all these fans thirst for. For a lot of visitors, in addition, it provided a chance to see timepieces that had been announced but hadn’t yet been shown to the public. One such exle is that the eight-piece, limited-edition Geo. Graham Orrery Tourbillon, an unexpected high complication from a brand most notable because of its devotion to high-octane sports watches. Geo-Graham Orrery Tourbillon – frontThe Graham booth was packed through the two-day fair as people crowded around to find that the timepiece inspired by manufacturer eponym George Graham’s invention of the modern orrery in 1713. In the 2017 Geo-Graham Orrery Tourbillon, a tourbillon made by Christophe Claret forms the beating heart of the galaxy while Moon and Mars figures–crafted with real fragments of their celestial bodies taken from meteorites that fell to Earth, and a Kingman-turquoise Earth–circle the tourbillon enclosed within an 18K pink stone bridge. At the center of the engraved star exle, a cabochon diamond marks the dead center for the solar rotations.

Graham pin-up girls went out on the streets in Hong Kong on June 29 to meet watch lovers and curious spectators. 

In a very festive atmosphere, the pin-ups walked around the streets wearing the Chronofighter Vintage Nose Art limited editions, bringing the “nose art” girls inpsired by that found on allied warplanes during the second world war to life.

As part of a Chronofighter Vintage Nose Art Ltd exhibition at Oriental Watch Co., the four models also presented the collection to the guests and posed for photographs with their cartoon lookalikes.
