NEWS FROM THE BRANDS
TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 1, 2011
With BASELWORLD 2011 just a few weeks away, we invite you to discover some of the product news that will be presented at this year's World Watch and Jewellery Show:
Longines Twenty-Four Hours
In the 1950's Longines supplied watches to the Swiss national airline, Swissair. These timepieces, which had been developed specifically from the brand's aviators' watches, had a very distinctive 24-hour dial. Longines has now re-issued this watch for both historical and functional reasons, as well as for the aesthetic attraction it still holds.

Masterpiece Collection MP-01
Dubbed "Tourbillon Vendome", it was developed in tribute to the recent opening of the Hublot boutique in Place Vendôme. Hence two small columns can be seen on the dial side (two for 200 years), framing the tourbillon cage. Crafted from bronze, they are perfect replicas of the column in Place Vendôme, which celebrated its bicentenary last December.

Time for fun
When Kees de Bruïne and Dick Sijmons, decided to design a range of watches they knew it had to be different. Inspired by their love of Holland's big, bright tulip fields, the KYBOE! collection now stretches from bold to bling. With its contrasting outer bezel, dial and band a KYBOE! timepiece is a rocking fashion accessory with plenty of attitude.
