Available in French only – Protecteur de l’artisanat traditionnel mais aussi des talents artistiques, la Maison Piaget continue de manifester son soutien des jeunes joailliers, en décernant deux prix pour la 9e année consécutive aux élèves des différentes écoles de Genève. Philippe Léopold-Metzger, Directeur général de la Maison Piaget, vient de présenter le prix du meilleur designer et celui du meilleur joaillier, lors d’une cérémonie à la Manufacture Piaget à Plan-les-Ouates.

Ces deux distinctions ont été reçues par deux élèves du Centre de formation professionnelle des arts appliqués (CFP AA) et de la formation DUAL de l’Association romande des métiers de la bijouterie. Depuis 2005 Rolex Replica Watches, la Maison horlogère et joaillière soutient les formations genevoises en récompensant les meilleurs élèves de l’année, avec ces prix qui s’adressent aux élèves de 4e année de bijouterie joaillerie, futurs talents de l’industrie.

Le Prix Design Swiss Replica Watches For Sale, qui récompense l’exploration artistique et esthétique en Joaillerie selon un thème donné, a été remporté par le jeune étudiant Beili Wang. Ce jeune homme, arrivé de Chine en 2006 sans parler un mot de français, est aujourd’hui complètement intégré et francophone. Il a séduit les juges du concours avec sa création joaillière.

Youna Gygax est lauréate du Prix Joaillier qui demande aux étudiants de réaliser un objet selon un dessin artistique. Youna a décidé de se consacrer à la vocation de la bijouterie-joaillerie lors de sa 3e année du collège. Bien qu’elle ait réussi le concours d’entrée au CFP Arts Appliqués pour un apprentissage à plein-temps, elle a choisi de faire son cursus en dual en suivant un apprentissage. Le prix décerné par Piaget valide l’excellence de son travail, et la précision de son exécution technique.

Philippe Léopold-Metzger, Directeur général de la Maison Piaget explique : « La qualité du travail et la créativité sont d’un niveau excellent. Le travail des deux lauréats a séduit le jury de la Maison Piaget ainsi que le jury de l’école par son imagination et un rendu final d’une qualité professionnelle malgré leur jeune âge. Il est d’une grande importance pour la Maison Piaget de reconnaître et d’encourager de jeunes talents d’année en année, afin d’assurer la continuation de l’innovation et de l’exploration artistique pour l’avenir. »

La Maison Piaget a offert à la lauréate du Prix Joaillier, un stage de 6 mois au sein de son atelier de Haute Joaillerie, pour qu’elle puisse continuer son développement professionnel et artistique.

Architecture The future in the spotlight

— Meeting between Rolex Replica watchmaking and architecture.


Brazil’s Niteroi Contemporary Art Museum (MAC)

Text by Marie de Pimodan-Bugnon & Alex Leuzinger

UK Rolex Replica Watchmaking and architecture share common terminology as well as identical construction principles. Parallel to this, form and function interweave to underpin design. Philosophical resemblances and structural similarities under the scrutiny of architect Alex Leuzinger.

The Replica Watches UK: Nautilus Travel Time Chronograph by Patek Philippe ref. 5990/1 A

A cult design, two of the most sought-after complications, exemplary readability… The Nautilus Travel Time Chronograph adds the famous mechanism that makes it possible to read the second time zone at a glance to a classic chronograph movement. Two useful functions that Patek Philippe blends with the iconic aesthetics of the Nautilus whose porthole-inspired shape as well as its two lateral hinges on the case prove to be particularly suited to using these complications. While the righthand hinge acts as a protective reinforcement for the crown and chronographer pushbuttons, its left-hand counterpart has been replaced by the pushbuttons making it possible for the local time hand to go forward or backwards in hourly jumps. Smooth handling that is positively child’s play, coupled with a day/night indicator for each time zone and a perpetual calendar pegged on the local time. The dial reflects the collection’s emblematic design with its horizontal Nautilus textured pattern in subtle shades of black. Excellent aesthetics working in conjunction with useful functions driven by the new CH 28-520 C FUS mechanical self-winding caliber.

Its architectural equivalent : Brazil’s Niteroi Contemporary Art Museum (MAC) by Oscar Niemeyer

Designed by Oscar Niemeyer, one of the most famous Brazilian architects, the MAC opened in Niteroi, opposite Rio de Janeiro in 1996, after five years of construction. Intended to house the João Leão Sattamini Neto art collection, the museum is a work of art in itself that the public discovers when it comes to look at the some 1200 works exhibited. Rising to the heavens “like a flower” in Niemeyer’s own words, the 16-meter high, 18 to 20-meter diameter circular building, offers a staggering view of Sugar Loaf Mountain and the Corcovado. The building’s silhouette has a unique influence on the view over Rio de Janeiro and gives visitors a sense of being confronted by a futuristic headlight rising out of the earth.

Its contours reveal the mature, daring work of an experienced artist… The influence of Corbusier (1887-1965) can be seen through the rational use of materials and the formal, adornment- free language which promotes the architectural concept of the building. The way in which Oscar Niemeyer positions simple, linear shapes enables him to use a hard, raw material such as concrete which he makes lighter and which he engineers into a playful dance between the water of the swimming pool in which it is mirrored and the surrounding sea. This harmonious, poetic simplicity makes this building a futuristic element, as well as a classic that is able to convey unique emotions.

The Nautilus Travel Time Chronograph fits into this mind set. The choice of steel – a “hard” material like that of the concrete used for the MAC – is thus transformed through a bold idea into a poetic object capable of transporting us into a new universe as well as becoming an icon of modern design. Inspired by the shape of a porthole, with the changing shades of its dial and its harmonious curves, the Omega Replica watches is reminiscent of the ocean and the reflecting pool in which the curved silhouette of the building created by Niemeyer is mirrored and outlined.

Ulysse Nardin Marine Diver

Posted on

The fully redesigned Marine Diver showcases all the qualities of a genuine diving Replica Watches, with its screw-locked crown, rotating bezel and case that is water-resistant to 300 meters.

The marine world holds no secrets from Ulysse Nardin. Having contributed to the conquest of the oceans through the development of its legendary marine chronometers, the Rolex Replica watchmaker has now anchored its impressive know- how in the sub-aquatic depths. Fully redesigned, the popular Marine Diver is both a highly reliable diving instrument and a fine sports Swiss Replica Watches that can be worn on every occasion.

Everything about the Marine Diver evokes the marine world in which the Le Locle watchmaker is steeped, starting with Ulysse Nardin’s anchor emblem, proudly displayed at 2 o’Clock. The dial, in blue or black, is decorated with a wave-like motif. The same ornamentation can be seen on the bezel. The solid case-back reveals an engraving of a boat surrounded by the inscription: “Conquer the ocean.” This embellishes a new case designed for extreme conditions, extended by the lugs with their taut, sleek lines.

In terms of performance, this Rolex Replica watches has all the attributes required of a diving watch. Boasting exceptional water resistance to 300 meters, made possible thanks to the screw-locked crown and case-back, it also features a unidirectional rotating bezel, which prevents any accidental adjustment to the dive time. For the same safety reasons, every aspect of the new Marine Diver has been designed to facilitate the reading of its precious indications: The impressive 44 mm face displays large hour-markers and hands with a white luminescent coating and a red stripe, for perfect visibility. The small seconds at 6 o’clock are also oversized, offering a reassuring sign that the Replica Watches UK is functioning as it should, even in the water’s murky depths. Lastly, the claw-shaped rubber molding over the crown ensures it is easy to grip, even with diving gloves.

Powered by the self-winding caliber UN-26 and with a power reserve of 42 hours, the new Marine Diver displays, in addition to its time functions, the date in an aperture at 6 o’clock and the power reserve in a counter at 12 o’clock. It is available in steel, mounted on a rubber strap or steel bracelet.
