COVER STORY

  • FORGING AHEAD | The year-old Manufacture des Forges is just one part of the new Audemars Piguet.

WATCH TESTS

  • TENTH POWER | Zenith’s marquee model at the 2010 Baselworld watch fair can measure time to the nearest 1/10-second. WatchTime put this innovative chronograph to the test.
  • THE SINKING MAN’S WATCH | We test the new Omega Ploprof, a re-edition of a classic divers’ watch from 1970 with double the original’s water resistance and a new manufacture movement.

FEATURES

  • BASELWORLD 2010 | Part two of WatchTime’s review of watchworld news and new products from the world’s biggest watch fair
  • WRESTLING WITH TIME | WWE wrestler-turned-actor “Stone Cold” Steve Austin is a tough guy with a collection of luxurious but rough-and-tumble watches.
  • POWER PLAY | Swatch Group Chairman Nicolas Hayek wants Swiss watch firms to make their own mechanical movements. To that effect, he has asked Switzerland’s antitrust commission for permission to cut sales of mechanical movements and components to third parties.
