Key complication for FP Journe 30th anniversary wristwatch revealed

The third teaser for FP Journe’s upcoming 30th anniversary timepiece has just been released, showing only a small portion of the watch but revealing much…

After two teasers, the first revealing the enamel dial and the second, the guilloche case, the third teaser is a look at the movement. It that the watch is a tourbillon with a bridge and a steel tourbillon cage. And the movement appears to be executed in a nineteenth century style with a frosted finish on the bridges and base plate, not unlike the period works of A. L. Breguet, whom Journe has cited as one of his greatest inspirations.

The rest will be revealed on 18 October.

Introducing the Chanel J12 Moonphase (with specs and price)

Chanel recently unveiled the newest addition to its brilliant successful line of ceramic watches, the J12 Moonphase, a wristwatch with a simple but charming complication.

Though a moon phase is not a practical function (save for fishermen), it has a visual charm which is well suited for ladies’ timepieces. The J12 Moonphase adds a thin, but appealing, layer of complexity onto a bestselling and fashionable timepiece.   Displayed on a sparkling aventurine – a form of quartz crystal with metal inclusions which cause the sparkle – sub-dial at six o’clock, the moonphase is by a polished steel serpentine hand, instead of the typical aperture.

And the J12 Moonphase also has a date hand, indicating the date on the perimeter of the dial. The case diameter is 38 mm, and inside is an automatic, 42 hour power reserve ETA 2892 with a moon phase module by Dubois-Depraz. Available in both classic colours of the J12, white or black ceramic, the J12 Moonphase Classic is priced at S$12,280 (~US$9830).

And two high jewellery versions are available as well. The first is in white gold and titanium ceramic, set with 554 baguette diamonds. The retail price is S$835,200 (~US$669,000).

The top of the line model is entirely in white gold, and set with 669 baguette diamonds. This retails for S$1,286,700 (~US$1.03 million).

All prices mentioned are for Singapore and include 7% tax. – SJX
