The MIH watch company - or Musée International d'Horlogerie at La Chaux-de-Fonds is a watch that struck all the right chords with me. My personal preference in watches has always been understated designs that cloaks complex features that the owner or afficinados only knows about. Very much like BMW M5. For me, this watch in its very Germanic like designs epitomises this design philosphy. It's simple dial design hides its Annual Calendar and monopusher like Chronograph functions. Whilst the base is a popular Valjoux movement, for me that does not detract the wonderful concept in decide and delivery of the watch. To read a wonderful report on the watch by Magnus Bosse, click on the photo.

A very kind friend and fellow Purist loaned this wonderful watch for me to photograph. I tried to do justice to the watch but somehow I feel I am not able to convey the wonderful balance this watch. The dial is mesmerising and the white gold case, exquisite. I hope you like the photographs here.

Ian Skellern in his usual wonderful style and photography reports on the opening of the new JD Boutique in Geneva. The three page report also showcases the launch party as well as the stunning new watches for ladies. The new watches continues with the JD signature design with embellishment of jewels to adorn the wearer with some bling. What is most subtle is that women's designs appear to have the watchcase size increased considerably. But this fashion change does not odd or seem out of place at all - judging how the models are able to carry it off. To read the report, just click on the photo!
