COVER STORY

ADVANCED FLIGHT INSTRUMENTS

By Roger Ruegger | IWC maintains one of the largest fleets

of pilot watches and also offers an impressive choice of

materials for one of its most popular models, the 41-mm

Pilot’s Chronograph.

 

TESTS & REVIEWS

CITIZEN OF THE WORLD

By Martina Richter | Like a second time-zone complication,

but better, a world timer provides a more complete function for

travelers. The Bulgari Octo Roma WorldTimer offers an amazingly

simple and accurate reading of time around the globe.

 

SARTORIAL & SKELETONIZED

By Bilal Khan | The new Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda PF Skeleton

grows the hit luxury sports watch collection and gives a revered

but old-fashioned technique a fresh new look.

 

BORN TO COMPETE

By Martina Richter | Seiko pays homage to its sports timekeeping

heritage with the new Prospex Speedtimer Automatic Chrono[1]graph that joins two limited-edition Speedtimers. We put it to our

test.

 

EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED

By Alexander Krupp | The new Oris ProPilot X Calibre 400

may appear understated at first glance, but it gradually reveals

unforeseen attributes.

 

AND INSTEAD OF OR

By Alexander Krupp | There are elegant watches, and there

are functional watches. Grand Seiko’s Hi-Beat 36,000 GMT 44GS

55th Anniversary Limited Edition (SBGJ255), however,

feels at home in both worlds.

FEATURES

TOUCHDOWN IN LE LOCLE

Questions by Roger Ruegger | WatchTime talks with Green Bay

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers during his first visit to the

Zenith manufacture in Le Locle.

 

 

IN PURSUIT OF PERPETUAL PERFECTION

By Martin Green | Rolls-Royce meets A. Lange & Söhne, Jaeger[1]LeCoultre, H. Moser & Cie., Parmigiani Fleurier, Greubel Forsey

and Purnell.

 

THE LASTING INFLUENCE OF THE NINETIES

By Bilal Khan | A look back at the decade that saw an

industry recover from crisis and steady itself at the cusp

of a new millennium.

 

HEART-STOPPING MOMENTS

By Rüdiger Bucher | The TAG Heuer Autavia embodies

the excitement of 1960s motorsports and the optimism of the

time. The new 2022 models reflect the Autavia’s beginnings

as a cockpit instrument and build on this history.

 

LICENSE TO DIVE

By Jens Koch | Underwater explorers and frogmen play as

prominent a role in the history of Omega’s dive watches as do

the seahorse and the world’s most famous secret agent.
