e choose to take a moment in our latest Europa Star issue, Chapter 4/18, to digest the swirl of announcements and new releases that 2018 has brought. We introduce our very own Watch Curator featuring a selection of 147 new timepieces.
The incredible variety on display goes to show that watch culture has never been stronger! In Watch Curator 2018, we attempt to map out the landscape of current watch production, so that our readers can draw their own conclusions about the future of traditional watchmaking.
Here are the categories we present:
- SUN, MOON, STARS
- NEW DISPLAYS
Cover Story: LONGINES CONQUEST V.H.P. GMT FLASH SETTING
Longines is continuing to target high-precision quartz through the V.H.P. collection, which brings a surprising innovation. The Flash Setting mode included in the collection’s new GMT model uses a smartphone flashlight to set the time zone. This intelligent module remains operational in all circumstances, no electronic emissions needed. The guiding philosophy is to place new technology at the service of the watch, rather than the other way around.
