Top Marques Monaco 2019 - Watches & Jewels

ART IN TIME

ART IN TIME is a unique concept in watchmaking: gathering manufactures not through the genre of the watch, the type or the style, but by the affinity of values.   These values gather around a foundation that is shared by all manufacturers which are independence, creativity and exclusivity.   In Monaco, the first art gallery dedicated to the measure of time in this area of the world has been created: ART IN TIME.   With a great spot in the heart of the Côte d’Azur, its mission is to offer nothing but the best of watchmaking, with a range of manufactures that complete each other.

CHOPARD L.U.C

Timepieces of Distinction   The L.U.C collection bearing the initials of Louis-Ulysse Chopard is a tribute to the man who in 1860 created a watch manufactory named after him in Sonvilier, a village in the Swiss Jura. A tribute driven by passion.   A passion for beauty, for art, and for Haute Horlogerie. The passion of a man, Karl-Friedrich Scheufele, who created Chopard Manufacture in 1996. In less than twenty years, this watch firm has earned the enviable title of a genuine manufacturer, since it has incorporated within its walls the entire range of Haute Horlogerie professions and created this collection of exceptional timepieces.   Its level of integration currently enables it to design, develop and produce all its own calibres in-house. This degree of reliability and quality reached by L.U.C ensures they all earn chronometer certification from the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC), and many of them achieve the rare distinction of also bearing such prestigious quality labels as those of the Fleurier Quality Foundation or the Poinçon de Genève.  

FERDINAND BERTHOUD

At the initiative of Karl-Friedrich Scheufele, Chronométrie FERDINAND BERTHOUD is earning its pedigree in the guise of a new Manufacture creating exceptional timepieces and firmly rooted in Fleurier, the native region of the watchmaker Ferdinand Berthoud.   Chronométrie FERDINAND BERTHOUD draws inspiration from the remarkable heritage of the Swiss master watchmaker while giving it a remarkable contemporary twist.   The DNA of the new timepieces produced by Chronométrie FERDINAND BERTHOUD stems from the considerable heritage of the Maison. These contemporary yet timeless watches are endowed with the signature touches embodying the excellence and the renown of the Berthoud dynasty.   Precise, complex and elegantly understated, they symbolise the natural continuity of creations by Ferdinand Berthoud. Their innovative mechanical movement, entirely developed, produced and assembled in-house, displays a characteristic pillar-type structure graced with refined finishes and housed within a distinctive octagonal case.

GREUBEL FORSEY

When Robert Greubel and Stephen Forsey teamed up and launched Greubel Forsey in 2004, they shared a common view that there was still room for creativity in the development of complications in watchmaking. Their goal was to improve the performance of existing complications but also to invent innovative mechanisms. The technical and aesthetic aspects complement one another, giving rise to bold creations. Robert Greubel and Stephen Forsey create just under one hundred timepieces each year – which speaks volumes about the quality of their workmanship and attention to detail.

Since its founding in 1995, the Maison has consistently pushed technical boundaries and shown an unswerving commitment to boldly go where no other watchmakers have gone before.

URWERK

The history of URWERK has its origins far from Geneva, in the town of Ur in Mesopotamia. In 6000 BC its inhabitants, the Sumerians, defined the first unit of time on the basis of a rhythm of 12 equal periods, by observing the shadow thrown by the sun on their buildings. This laid the foundations of time measurement, as we know it today.   In the meantime, the history of watchmaking has been in a state of perpetual evolution and change. Master-watchmakers have made great efforts to ensure its continued evolution, through their eagerness to create the perfect mechanism, worthy of reflecting the passage of one of our most precious assets, time.   This long-term undertaking is symbolized in the German language by the term werk. This word single-handedly represents all the persistence and pugnacity of these craftsmen who, at their workbenches, forged what we now call Haute Horlogerie.   URWERK embodies the essence of this illustrious heritage.
