See those gemstones on the case used for the hour indicators? They are set in a way such that each one can spin around. Each "unit" is actually a setting for three stones, and using the crown the wearer and simultaneously turns them to display diamond hour markers, pink sapphire hour markers, or blue sapphire hour markers. Fendi describes this fashion-oriented feature to allow the wearer to change the color of the stones in order to match their mood. Yet somehow a bold black and yellow fur strap works with all moods?
For 2014, we get a new Jaeger-LeCoultre watch with the famed Caliber 876SQ movement. The existing movement has been executed in a new way for the Master Grande Tradition à Quantième Perpétuel 8 jours SQ limited edition that, according to Jaeger-LeCoultre, is inspired by a grand complication pocket watch made in 1928. A lovely piece, the new watch combines enameling and engraving in addition to the highly complicated movement.
Piaget of course has their own "world's thinnest minute repeater," which this Vacheron Constantin now beats. It is the Piaget Emperador Coussin XL Ultra-Thin Minute Repeater (hands-on). Even though the new Patrimony Contemporaine Calibre 1731 Minute Repeater is a thinner watch, the Piaget is also an automatic. Though the difference in case thickness between the two is appreciable as the Piaget is about 10mm thick and this Vacheron Constantin is just 8.09mm thick. That is one thin minute repeater.
