      Late last month, the Grand Prix d'Horlogerie de Genève (GPHG) took place at the Grand Thèâtre complete with a red carpet entrance, cameras and impressive light show on the façade. The ceremony is comparable to the Academy Awards, though, in place of the famed movie stars are the creators of the world's finest timepieces. The event hosts over 1,500 guests, including the President of the Swiss Federation, Ueli Maurer and Mayor of Geneva, Sandrine Salerno as well as prominent leaders and influences in horology. Lucky for me, I was sitting front row for all the excitement. GPHG Each year a jury is selected to award the finest watches and most important operators in the watchmaking industry in addition to saluting excellence in worldwide horological production. The elite and qualified jury voted by secret ballot. Members of the jury included watch historians and industry experts like iW's contributing writer, Elizabeth Doerr, and celebrities such as musician John Mayer and famed French designer Philippe Starck. iW Magazine: http://iwmagazine.com/2013/12/10/video-behind-the-scenes-at-the-gphg-awards/ Instagram: http://instagram.com/iwmagazine Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/iwmagazine Twitter: https://twitter.com/iwmagazine Pinterest: http://www.pinterest.com/iwmagazine/ YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/user/iWmag

          If you're a fan of independent horology, then you know Peter Speake-Marin. Peter has a long history of fine watchmaking, having been involved with Harry Winston's Excenter Tourbillon, the MB&F HM1, and of course, the Maîtres du Temps Chapters One and Two. His eponymous brand is now his focus though, and his own caliber, the SM2 and SM2m (manual) has brought even more attention to his already lauded timepieces. In the video you will see the Marin 2 Thalassa, two example of the Marin 1 (one simple white enamel dial and another laser cut enamel dial that happens to be Peter's own watch), and a Serpent Calendar that was hand engraved by master engraver Kees Engelbarts.

            • Inside MB&F's Legacy Machine No. 1 Xia Hang

              MB&F introduced last week, a timepiece incorporating the futuristic sculptures of Chinese artist Xia Hang entitled the Legacy Machine N°1 Xia Hang. The sculptures are appropriately named Mr. Up and Mr. Down, and identify the power reserve in a playful manner. When the vertical power reserve indicator is at full power Hang's sculpture sits tall as Mr. Up and as the power decreases Mr. Up slumps into Mr. Down. "When I first met Max he was wearing an HM3 and I loved the playful sculptural nature of it. Through him, I learned that watches could also be very creative," Hang said. "I admire Max's passion in finding artists who share similar tastes and the MB&F M.A.D. Gallery in Geneva is one of my favourite art galleries in the world. I hope to be able to collect Max's watches one day and I think that MB&F's mechanical art work is unsurpassed. I am very pleased to have had the opportunity to collaborate with MB&F, their Machines inspire me." Legacy Machine N°1 Xia Hang is a limited edition of 12 pieces in red gold and 12 pieces in white gold and each Machine is accompanied by large-scale versions of Mr. Up and Mr. Down in stainless steel and signed by Xia Hang. Büsser looks forward to future collaborations. "Legacy Machine N°1 Xia Hang is the first time (and hopefully not the last) that there has been a cross-pollination between a MB&F M.A.D. Gallery artist (Xia Hang) and a MB&F watch (LM1). In curating these amazing artists at our M.A.D. Gallery in Geneva, it opens a world of possibilities in possible co-creations with MB&F's Machines." iW Magazine: http://iwmagazine.com/2014/03/03/inside-mbfs-legacy-machine-no-1-xia-hang/ Instagram: http://instagram.com/iwmagazine Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/iwmagazine Twitter: https://twitter.com/iwmagazine Pinterest: http://www.pinterest.com/iwmagazine/ YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/user/iWmag

                Back in Basel, we had the chance to sit down with Martin Frei, chief designer for one of our very favorite modern haute horology brands, Urwerk. He walked us through his entire design philosphy and explained each of Urwerk's timepieces. Just a few weeks back, Urwerk released their Black Cobra CC-1 and that got the whole world buzzing. The Cobra looks good, there is no doubt about that, but after reading some other blogs posts on this watch, it was clear that readers can't really grasp this watch until they see it in action. Luckily, we have this video of Martin explaining the original Cobra. This watch is, without hyperbole, one of the Hodinkee top five in the world. Watch below and you'll see why.
