Cartier Brings Together A Unique Community Of Celebrities For Launch Of The Pasha

Ever since its creation in 1985 has the Pasha de Cartier been the watch of people who enjoy style with a unique twist. While in essence, it is just a round watch, it was famed watch designer Gerald Genta who made it more, by adding the typical Vendome-lugs and canteen crown. It made the Pasha de Cartier the watch to have in the 1980s, a success which Cartier perpetuated well into the new millennium. What made the Pasha even more special is that it is a watch that was embraced by a very diverse and international clientele. For the launch of the new generation of the Pasha, Cartier is joined by a very talented group of artists who have each made their mark in different ways. Rami Malek, Troye Sivan, Willow Smith, Maisie Williams, and Jackson Wang are all at the top of their field, where they stand out by their professionalism but also by not conform or restrain their creativity by traditional standards, very much like the Pasha.

H. Moser & Cie Brings April Fools Joke To Life With Three New Vantablack Watches With Blackened Hands

Last year, on April 1, 2019, H. Moser & Cie posted an image of a vantablack watch that also had its hands blacked out, leaving just a black space. Apparently, the brand got so much interest they decided to actually make the April Fools day joke a reality and release three pieces. Fortunately, the hands are just blackened and not done in vantablack, so the time can actually be read, at least theoretically.
The in-person buying experience is non-existent at the moment, so Moser is also using these releases to tout its new e-commerce system, as well. Seeing such a low-production/high-cost brand like Moser embrace e-commerce is an encouraging sign.
These are very cool and very stark watches, and the blackened hands are unexpectedly effective in showing just how black vantablack really is. It’s impossible to tell if you’ll be able to read the time as clearly as you can from the press images, but my feeling is that it won’t be.

As for the watches, first is an Endeavour Tourbillon Concept..

RJ Brings Spider-Man To Haute Horlogerie With Two New Limited-Edition Models

Major licensed tie-ins, whether with major film franchises, pop culture icons, or comic book heroes, have become a rising trend in the watch industry over the past several years. These tie-in models have come in all manner of forms, from subtle nods to full-blown fantasy reinterpretations of existing timepieces, but for the most part these tie-in deals have occupied the more affordable side of the watch market. Enthusiasts typically see the luxury watch industry as more conservative when it comes to lending its high end designs to be shared with another brand, but paradoxically that trend reverses in the fanciful and ultra-exclusive pinnacle of haute horlogerie. Boutique watchmaker RJ (formerly Romain Jerome) is a perfect example of this luxury tie-in philosophy, and for its latest releases the brand has partnered with Marvel to create a pair of limited edition watches inspired by everyone’s favorite wall-crawler: Spider-Man. Both the RJ ARRAW Spider-Man and the ARRAW Spider-Man Tourbi..
