Experience, History, Refinement and Aspiration combine in Girard-Perregaux's Temple of Time resulting in a flowering of breathtaking new novelties. In the Minute Repeater Tri-Axial Tourbillon (CHF393,500) a 48mm titanium case houses the opulent hand-wound movement which may be easily admired through the box-type sapphire crystal. When activated, the striking mechanism chimes sweetly with a crystalline sound and acoustic wave, emanating from the gong-ring to the exterior. #GirardPerregaux #minuterepeater #SIHH2018 #rrmalaysia #robbreportmalaysia #hautehorlogerie #highhorology #timepiece #time #luxurytimepieces #luxurywatches #instawatch #swisswatches #watchesofinstagram

@iwcwatches celebrates its 150th anniversary with a limited edition jubilee lineup across its family of collections; Portugueser, Portofino, Pilot and Da Vinci. A special release, the IWC Tribute to Pallweber, proposes a return to historical pocket watches where time telling is done through discs and in digit form rather than analogous and with hands. A choice of 45mm cases in stainless steel (RM98,00), red gold (RM152,000) and platinum (RM247,000) are proposed, each of which are limited - 500 for the steel, 250 for red gold and only 25 for platinum. Each and every watch sports the 150th anniversary jubilee medallion in 18k gold on its movement. #IWCSchaffhausen #IWCwatches #150years #SIHH2018 #rrmalaysia #robbreportmalaysia #hautehorlogerie #highhorology #timepiece #time #luxurytimepieces #luxurywatches #instawatch #swisswatches #watchesofinstagram

Proving its motto of never standing still, @alangesoehne outdoes itself with the world’s first mechanical split seconds chronograph which allows multi-hour comparative time measurements. The succintly named Triple Split has additional rattrapante hands on the minute and hour totalisers, making it possible for this timepiece to measure the hours, minutes and seconds of not just one but two discrete reference times. An example would be measuring the time it takes to complete for the winner and second-placed finisher in a triathlon, Formula 1 race or Tour de France leg. with limits of measure up till 12 hours. Limited to 100 pieces, each Triple Split comes in a 43.2mm white gold case, with a height of 15.6mm, and is priced at €139,000 per piece. #SIHH2018 #alangesoehne #lange #explicitcomplication #horologicaladvisory #triplesplit #rrmalaysia #robbreportmalaysia #hautehorlogerie #highhorology #timepiece #time #luxurytimepieces #luxurywatches #instawatch #swisswatch #watchporn

The year 2018 for @panerai serves up a tribute to Galileo Galilei, with the 50mm Luminor 1950 Moonphases Tourbillon Equation of Time GMT. This timepiece is a truly bespoke proposal by Panerai with every timepiece configured to measure solar time based on a location of the owner's choice. This, plus a host of other customisations; hands, case material and even type of finish – enables one to own a truly bespoke timepiece, the first from Panerai which integrates the moonphase and tourbillon in a single piece.

The new Santos from Cartier echoes with refinement and Parisian geometry, harking back to the larger-than-life inspiration figure of its namesake, aviator Alberto Santos-Dumont. Its multi-purpose strap - in a choice of steel, gold, calfskin or alligator - come equipped with the QuickSwitch system which enables the wearer to swap between the options for a more varied look to their ensemble. Inside, the 1847 MC automatic calibre has been upgraded with anti-magnetic properties; a paramagnetic alloy shield and movement components which better resist the vicissitudes of magnetism. #SIHH2018 #Cartier #Santos #rrmalaysia #robbreportmalaysia #hautehorlogerie #highhorology #timepiece #time #luxurytimepieces #luxurywatches #instawatch #swisswatch

Using Fibonacci codes to create the snazzy 2018 Kalpa collection, @parmigianifleurier continues an horological adventure which began 20 years ago, when Michel Parmigiani created a tonneau-shaped movement. In the 18k rose gold Kalpa Chronor (CHF85,000 ) the ergonomics of chronograph activation is brought to life through the world’s first solid-gold, self-winding integrated movement. Its COSC-certified calibre PF365 had required six years to develop, boasting an oscillation rate of 5Hz for an accuracy in the reading of one tenth of a second. A closer inspection will reveal the master restorer’s detailed execution, with 54 internal angles and a hand-guilloche "Tresse" dial. #parmigiani #SIHH2018 #goldmovement #rrmalaysia #robbreportmalaysia #hautehorlogerie #highhorology #timepiece #time #luxurytimepieces #luxurywatches #instawatch #swisswatch

Comprising armoured sapphire and titanium bridges, the RM53-01 Tourbillon Pablo Mac Donough is the second coming of a polo timepiece by @richardmilleofficial. Every possible shock encountered in the game of polo was carefully considered in this timepiece's creation, with carbon TPT on the case and a cable-suspension mechanism for the movement. Pendulum testing of up to 5,000 Gs was applied to the sapphire crystal construction with no ill effects, while a hammer blow doesn't leave any fragments of sapphire among the movement. The final reckoning is of a timepiece which is virtually indestructible even under the most extreme stresses of a polo match, displaying a durability which Richard Mille is famed for. #SIHH2018 #RichardMille #polo #PabloMacDonough #rrmalaysia #robbreportmalaysia #hautehorlogerie #highhorology #timepiece #time #luxurytimepieces #luxurywatches #instawatch #swisswatch

This year, at SIHH, Vacheron Constantin returns you to a dreamy longing for the early days of exploration, discovery and flight through its Metier d’Art Les Aerostiers collection. A sumptous rendition of five historical flights undertaken in France between 1783 and 1785 is brought to life with engraving, pounced ornament and exquisite plique-a-jour enamel in the 40mm 18k gold pieces. Each hot-air balloon requires three weeks of craftmanship while the translucent background of enamel recalls the technique of stained class windows with subtle shades. This collection is produced in a limited number of five numbered pieces per reference. #VCSIHH #VacheronConstantin #SIHH2018 #rrmalaysia #robbreportmalaysia #hautehorlogerie #highhorology #timepiece #time #luxurytimepieces #luxurywatches #instawatch #swisswatches #watchesofinstagram

Half a century ago, the Memovox Polaris by Jaeger-LeCoultre was released for the first time. That mid-century spirit is now infused into a new 2018 Polaris collection which includes a full range of timepieces; automatic, date, chronograph, world time as well as the Polaris Memovox. The latter is a 1,000-piece limited edition with an iconic three-crown design on a 42mm stainless steel case. On this piece, one is able to set the alarm using the top crown, activating a striking mechanism with a gong, which rings even in the water, with a resistance of up to 200m. #MadeOfMakers #JaegerLeCoultre #SIHH2018 #rrmalaysia #robbreportmalaysia #hautehorlogerie #highhorology #timepiece #time #luxurytimepieces #luxurywatches #instawatch #swisswatches #watchesofinstagram

Baume and Mercier breaks new ground with its Baumatic calibre, the brand's first in-house calibre which leverages on the combined expertise of Richemont's deep research and innovation hub. The result: a calibre with greater attributes of antimagnetic (25x more resistant than industry average) and power reserve (5 days). Accuracy is within the -4/+6 variance per day and its durability is enhanced, with service intervals of five years. Housed in the Clifton case, five variants are made available including a two-toned proposal (RM13,400) and a COSC-certified limited edition. #BaumeetMercier #SIHH2018 #rrmalaysia #robbreportmalaysia #hautehorlogerie #highhorology #timepiece #time #luxurytimepieces #luxurywatches #instawatch #swisswatches #watchesofinstagram

What does it take to reinvent a calendar watch? Five years, for a start. This year’s fruition of that half-decade journey results in the Royal Oak RD#2 by Audemars Piguet features the new ultra-thin 5133 calibre (at only 2.89mm) with the perpetual calendar complication. This piece of haute horlogerie is sheathed in an ultra-thin proposition offering ergonomy, efficiency and robustness in a 950 platinum case and bracelet. Its 41mm case of 6.3mm takes 2mm off the Royal Oak Extra-Thin Jumbo, making the Royal Oak RD#2 the thinnest automatic perpetual calendar on the market today. #AudemarsPiguet #AP #SIHH2018 #MadeInLeBrassus #PerpetualCalendar #rrmalaysia #robbreportmalaysia #hautehorlogerie #highhorology #timepiece #time #luxurytimepieces #luxurywatches #instawatch #swisswatches #watchesofinstagram

Montblanc’s idea of watches with character is brought to its zenith through the 2018 iterations of the maison’s mountaineering-inspired 1858 collection. The spirit and savoir-faire of the historical Minerva, now fused with Montblanc through its 2006 acquisition, is alive and well with the Montblanc 1858 Monopusher Chronograph Limited Edition (EUR28,000) which recalls the design-protected v-shaped chronograph bridge, engraved with the twin provenance of Minerva and Villeret. This bridge and the movement construct is based off the historical 1920 opus – Minerva’s first instance of a fully integrated chronograph movement in a wristwatch.A 40mm stainless steel case and smoked dial with beige luminescent numerals is augmented by alligator straps from Montblanc’s Pelletteria in Florence. #SpiritOfExploration #Montblanc #SIHH2018 #rrmalaysia #robbreportmalaysia #hautehorlogerie #highhorology #timepiece #time #luxurytimepieces #luxurywatches #instawatch #swisswatches #watchesofinstagram

The Carre H by @hermes, a Marc Berthier-designed timepiece, first debuted in 2010. Its square case and emphasis on instant legibility made it an easy favourite for adherents of cool design. Now, eight years later, Berthier enlarges the square and employs light as the means to illuminate the new Carre H (RM34,400). Polishing and microbead-blasted finishes on the 38mm-squared case, as well as right-angled guilloche work on the dial, add refractive surfaces for an animated, almost hypnotic lustre. In the refreshed design, its square edges are softened by light. The use of an exclusive font for the indices – including the novel use of zero – adds a wholly new character to an Hermes favourite which comes with dial choices of dark grey or black, paired with natural or black Barenia calfskin.

DAY 7: The H. Moser & Cie Venturer Small Seconds XL (RM99,000) available exclusively at @sincerefinewatches. In the present day, H Moser & Cie continue to have the representation of a Moser family member in Roger Nicholas Balsiger, the great-grandson of Heinrich Moser who serves as the helm of the company as its honorary board chairman and as president of the Heinrich and Henri Moser Foundation. This foundation, created by a descendent of the trailblazing founder of this eponymous watchmaker, intends to keep the family history alive by seeking out antique pieces for the Moser Museum, located at Charlottenfels Manor, the family home of Heinrich Moser. #aweekwithmoser #moser #hmoser&cie #neuhausen #rheinfall #venturer #hautehorlogerie #highhorology #timepiece #time #luxurytimepieces #luxurywatches #instawatch #swisswatches #sihh2017 #rrmalaysia #watchesofinstagram

DAY 6: Sexy and innovative, the notion of @moserwatches today has undergone an evolution from its more sombre origins. In the Venturer Small Seconds XL (RM99,000), a funky blue fume dial and hand-stitched kudu leather strap – with a lime green reverse – hint at the cool and contemporary spirit of the watchmaker today. What has remained a constant is its provenance, with its Neuhausen am Rheinfall home employing 50 people, manufacturing haute horlogerie components such as regulating organs and balance-springs – used for its own timepieces as well as supplying to other partner companies. This area of Switzerland was the birthplace of Heinrich Moser, who was born into a watchmaking family where both his father and grandfather were creating timepiece of the highest calibre. Heinrich, would go on to found his own watchmaking facility at the tender age of 21, and his prosperity and entrepreneurial zeal would eventually lead him back to his birthplace where he played a pivotal role in completing the largest dam in Switzerland at the time, situated on the Rhine. #aweekwithmoser #moser #hmoser&cie #neuhausen #rheinfall #venturer #hautehorlogerie #highhorology #timepiece #time #luxurytimepieces #luxurywatches #instawatch #swisswatches #sihh2017 #rrmalaysia #watchesofinstagram

Aston Martin Kuala Lumpur (@astonmartin_kl) and Robb Report Malaysia present Beautiful is... Charisma, with Dato' Vincent Leong.
The Managing Director of #Stamford College Malaysia, the oldest private #college in Malaysia, values #British engineering as much as British education. "British systems, ranging from engineering to cars to education, have been built layer upon layer through the centuries. This constant refinement is why, even without understanding, we subconsciously choose #British." The #AstonMartin #VanquishS, he says, puts him in a different zone as a #driver, full of charisma. And charisma is something that he wants all of his students to possess.

DAY 3: The ‘Very Rare’ tagline by @moserwatches is due, in part, to a limited production of only 1,200 timepieces yearly. This flagship Venturer model is an exemplar of the high craftmanship invested in the timepiece. The manner of artisanship within the timepeice results in pure lines, curved hands, a white gold case, a convex sapphire crystal and a hand-stitched beige kudu leather strap which make up the Venturer Small Seconds XL (RM99,000), available exclusively at @sincerefinewatches. #aweekwithmoser #moser #hmoser&cie #neuhausen #rheinfall #venturer #hautehorlogerie #highhorology #timepiece #time #luxurytimepieces #luxurywatches #instawatch #swisswatches #sihh2017 #rrmalaysia #watchesofinstagram

DAY 2: First launched in 2014, the Venturer collection by the 190-year-old Swiss watchmaker H Moser & Cie quickly became a hit. This version, the Venturer Small Seconds XL (RM99,000) is a 2016 release with a 43mm white gold case and an offset seconds hand. A part of the reason for its great reception lies in the collection’s design codes embededded within the timepiece such as; the convex shape recalling the 1960s and a shapereminiscent of historic pocket watches by @moserwatches. The watchmaker Heinrich Moser found great fame in St Petersburg with a clientele comprising Russian princes and members of the imperial court. Many Faberge table clocks in the mid 19th century were also equipped with movements by Moser.
