A 3rd generation Heuer Autavia

Vintage watches: the Heuer Autavia

The interest of vintage watches has never been bigger than it is today. And while the Newmans, Nautilus’ and tourbillons keep breaking records, collectors start to look elsewhere for that new interesting timepiece. One of these interesting news is the Heuer Autavia. When Jack Heuer designed the Autavia, he wanted to create a stopwatch that could be used by motor heads as well as pilots of all trades.

Patek Philippe Ref. 5930G World Time Chronograph

Patek Philippe Ref. 5930G World Time Chronograph

The radiant blue Ref. 5930G is an exceptionally beautiful creation. It is a 39.5mm white gold world timer that also has a chronograph function. The world time theme is like a canvas that can only be changed on a few points; after all, the world looks the way it does. Colour, case shape and proportions must be used to express uniqueness in a controlled theme. Patek Philippe has made a great job of it. With just a 30-minute counter for the chronograph on the dial with its hand-applied guilloche it is obvious at a glance that the world timer function is the central theme.

Urban Jürgensen Reference 1741 Platinum

Jürgen Jürgensen is the undisputed king and godfather of watchmaking in Denmark. In 1798 for instance he travelled to Paris to study with Abraham-Louis Breguet, in 1801 he built a remarkable bimetallic thermometer and after that he started to create very precise chronometers. The Jürgensen watch dynasty ended in 1912 with the death of the last Jürgensen but the company stayed alive and went abroad to Switzerland. In 2014 the ownership returned to Danish hands and with CEO Søren J. Petersen at the helm Urban Jürgensen moves into the future.

An interview with Frédérique Constant CEO Peter Stas

Ambitious, young and independent: in a very short period of time Frédérique Constant managed to build a reputation in Switzerland and in the global watch market. The not-so-rough diamond with Dutch roots didn't stay unnoticed in Japan either and so Citizen checked in with ‘FC’ owners Aletta and Pater Stas. After a full year of negotiating Frédérique Constant, including its other brands Alpina and Ateliers deMonaco, has now become the property of Citizen. We talked to Peter Stas about the reasons for the sale.
