  • Gold watches - All that glitters

    When it comes to gold watches, not all golds are the same. Beyond the simple differences in yellow, red and white gold, brands are increasingly differentiating their collections with their own personalized alloys of the precious metal.

    For many, a Swiss Made gold watch is the ultimate status symbol, regardless of the complexity of the movement that beats inside it. But the sheer range of different types of gold offered by luxury watch brands, each clamouring to ensure us that their version of gold is better than anyone else's, can be confusing.

    How gold is your gold?
    It's interesting to note that the ISO 8654 standard that governs the colours of gold is actually derived from a Swiss watchmaking industry standard that was first drawn up in 1966. This standard classifies gold colours in six grades, from 0N to 5N, the latter of which you may well have seen in numerous gold watch specifications. But what do these numbers mean?

    They refer to the observed colour of the finished product, rather than any specific alloy of gold. The 0N and 1N colours contain only 58.5% gold and are therefore not 18-carat (or 18K or 18 Karat if you are American) alloys. Any alloy containing 75% gold or above is considered 18-carat, which is the case for 2N to 5N gold. At the top of the scale, 5N gold contains the least amount of silver if it is used in the alloy and therefore offers the reddest hue to the finished product, which is referred to as red, pink or rose gold, depending on the watch brand.

    The World Gold Council, however, uses a much more specific notation, subdivided into three colours of 18-carat gold as follows:

    • Yellow gold: 75% gold, 15% silver, 10% copper
    • White gold: 75% gold, 25% platinum or palladium
    • Rose gold: 75% gold, 9.2% silver, 22.2% copper

    As we can see from the current offerings from the leading watch brands, not all rose gold alloys - the predominant one at least as far as men's gold watches are concerned - are the same, as the brands carefully juggle the three main constituents of the alloy to create their own "house blends".

    Magic Gold - Hublot
    Hublot's unique and proprietary Magic Gold alloy is produced in the brand's own mini-foundry on site at the manufacture in Nyon. The secret recipe combining gold, copper and platinum creates the world's first and only scratch-proof 18-carat gold alloy.

    Sedna Gold - Harry Winston
    First used by Omega, this gold alloy that is exclusive to the Swatch Group brands contains a higher proportion of palladium, which gives the case a warmer colour and finish. Harry Winston uses it for the first time this year in its Avenue collection. The palladium ensures a long-lasting lustre to the red tones in the case. The alloy is named after the trans-Neptunian object that astronomers called Sedna and is renowned for its red glow.

    King Gold - Hublot
    King Gold is the other gold alloy used by Hublot. Its exclusive colour is even redder than traditional 5N red gold. To achieve this result, the brand's metallurgists increased the percentage of copper and added platinum in order to stabilise the colour over the years and neutralise oxidation.

    5Npt gold - Panerai
    Surprisingly, Panerai only introduced its first models in red gold at the SIHH in 2012. The 5Npt alloy used by the Florentine brand consists of almost one-quarter (24.1%) copper, which adds a redder tinge to the gold Panerai watches. Like Hublot, Panerai adds a tiny percentage of platinum (0.4%) to prevent oxidation of the metal.

    Chopard - Fairmined gold
    Chopard cares more about the provenance of its gold than it does about its colour. The brand has gone to great lengths to incorporate Fairmined gold into its collection, since it requires an entirely separate foundry and production line and it must ensure that the Fairmined gold is not contaminated with any other type of gold - even in the waste recovered during the manufacturing process. The Fairmined appellation means that the gold was mined in a responsible manner and that the miners themselves receive fair payment and an overall premium for demonstrating that gold can be mined sustainably.
    Chopard was the first brand to launch a high-end luxury watch made of Fairmined gold: the L.U.C Tourbillon QF Fairmined, which was presented at Baselworld last year.

  • Piaget - Previewing the Altiplano Skeleton


    WORLDTEMPUS - 27 October 2011


    "I fully understand why other watch companies do not make super-slim watches," Piaget CEO Philippe Leopold-Metzger told Worldtempus from a sunny terrace in Seville, where Piaget showed its new Altiplano Skeleton.
    The Altiplano is an impressive timepiece. This is not only due to the fact that it is already powered by the thinnest automatic movement available on the market with a slender height of 2.4 millimeters. The Altiplano is also the thinnest automatic watch with a case height of only 5.34 millimeters.


    True artisans
    Leopold-Metzger's remark was a salute to the master craftsmen behind the watch who had to pretty much create the impossible: skeletonizing an already slim and - therefore - fragile movement: Caliber 1200S. Skeletonizing, also known as open-working, reveals only the most vital parts of the movement structure. In this case it was achieved without losing the well-known, luxurious look of a Piaget movement with its own decor and inner beauty.
    "This is a task reserved for only a few of the world's most talented artisans," Leopold-Metzger claimed, indicating that Piaget employs some of the most talented hands in the Swiss watch business. "Mind you, at Piaget we do not ask external and independent watchmakers to design a movement for us. We do everything ourselves," Leopold-Metzger underlined the strength of the watch company that he has captained for the last 12 years.


    The choice of Steve Jobs?
    We wanted to know from Leopold-Metzger why Piaget is so keen on being the master of the slim watch when some of its closest competitors are exploring new and exotic materials and multiple mechanical functions. "Piaget is an elegant company, offering elegant watches. But we are also very much movement makers, talking a lot about our calibers and how we put much effort into the aesthetics of our movements. Our super slim watches offer elegant simplicity, and I think that our Altiplano is a watch that Steve Jobs would have worn due to the extraordinary simplicity of the design." Jobs would probably not have protested against this remark, as Piaget's Altiplano indeed reflects elegance and simplicity paired with incredible technological features.
    Tough job
    Even though the Piaget Altiplano may look simple, creating its super slim movement certainly is not, as some of its components are as thin as 0.12 millimeter. On top of that, the Altiplano Skeleton is elegantly finished: a blackened platinum rotor elegantly decorated with Piaget's coat of arms rotates against the backdrop of a movement featuring satin-brushed, hand-sawed and hand-beveled plates and bridges. This caliber has been painstakingly skeletonized, yet the time is still very visible due to the blackened dauphine hands that provide a much needed contrast to the satinized, sunray-polished movement.


    Masters of the ultra-thin
    With this new open-worked model, it is hard to see how Piaget will be able to come up with another record-breaking Altiplano. The Skeleton version has been stripped down to its bare essentials, and it would take an even slimmer movement to move this new model out of the champion's circle: Piaget is indeed the "Master of Ultra-Thin Movements."
    The Altiplano Skeleton has a case diameter of 38 millimeters and is only offered in 18-karat white gold. Suggested retail price is 50,000 Swiss francs.
