COVER STORY

DEFYING THE STATUS
By Roger Ruegger | Since the late 1960s, the Defy has been Zenith’s go-to recipe for a progressive take on watchmaking. WatchTime takes a look at the current state of the Swiss brand’s collection.

TESTS & REVIEWS

PROTOTYPE IN SERIES
By Martina Richter | Based on a prototype from the late 1960s, the Black Bay P01 reveals a little-known aspect of Tudor’s history. We test the current serial model.

A HERO MADE OF STEEL
By Jens Koch |
With its first stainless-steel model, A. Lange & Söhne seeks to gain a foothold in the world of luxury sports watches. How does this new watch, which bears the name of a legendary hero from Greek mythology, perform in our test?

SPORTS FAN
By Martina Richter |
After the brilliant return of the Girard- Perregaux Laureato in 2016, chronographs have been added to this line. The latest addition is the Absolute Rock chronograph with a carbon glass case, which is manufactured using a patented injection molding process. We test a classic version with a 42-mm stainless-steel case and a high-contrast dial.

MYSTERY TRAIN
By Mark Bernardo |
The H. Moser & Cie. Streamliner, named for a classic locomotive, not only hides its chronographic complexity behind a stark, minimalist dial; it even hides the rotor that brings it to life. We plumb the secrets of this limited edition from the Schaffhausen manufacture.

MADE IN MONACO
By Alexander Krupp |
The brand-new TAG Heuer Monaco Calibre Heuer 02 is the first true manufacture chronograph in this legendary watch collection. Is it the best of all time?

FEATURES

VACHERON CONSTANTIN MARRIES HAUTE COUTURE WITH HAUTE HOROLOGY IN ÉGÉRIE
By Roberta Naas | When everyone else is steering toward gender neutral as the new buzzword, the venerable Vacheron Constantin unveils an all-new collection created especially for women and inspired by haute couture.

HAUTE UTILITÉ
By Mark Bernardo | Richard Mille makes ultra-expensive, ultrahigh- end timepieces for the few. It also offers an array of materials, functions and complications that are driven by practicality rather than sheer luxury.
