The Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) is taking place this week in Geneva. It is the 25th edition of the watch fair exhibiting new novelties from 16 of Richemont‘s watch maisons. We’ll be highlighting a favorite from each brand throughout the week. First up are two pieces from A. Lange & Söhne and Panerai that are new takes on classic looks.
A. Lange & Söhne‘s Datograph Up/Down first appeared in 2012, but this year it has got a whole new look: a pink-gold case and black solid-silver dial. The contemporary look feels both sleek and warm. And all the technical prowess is still there, too: the jumpin minute counter and flyback function, the column-wheel control mechanism, the oversize date indicator, and the balanced dial layout for seconds and minutes.
Panerai added a surprising design flourish to its collection this year with the PAM 604 Radiomir Firenze 3 Days Acciaio. The 47mm brushed steel case features Floretine-inspired engraving by Italian craftsman. The motifs are done entirely by hand and offer an elegant accent to a Panerai staple. From a brand we’ve come to love for its no-frills approach, we did not expect to be won over by the watch case’s floral patterns, and yet, we totally were. It’s the perfect balance of style and subtle sophistication.
