The name of the collection derives from sturgeon roe, Caviar. The setting used for the earrings is known as a pressure setting, meaning there are no visible gaps between the diamonds, mimicking the exotic delicacy.
“This intricate technique creates the illusion of one solitaire stone. But in fact, seven are housed within the mounting.” Said Quincy Dash, Creative Director.
The Caviar Collection is constructed in 18k Gold Alloy and is available in three metal colours – White Gold, Yellow Gold and Rose Gold. Set with premium handpicked colourless diamonds and finished with screw back fasteners for absolute security.
Wearable on any occasion, with opportunity to go bigger in size without breaking the bank. Makes the collection the perfect gift and fashion accessory this festive season.
The Caviar Collection will be available to purchase from £395-£1,250 on the official House Of Dash website on 7th December 2018

The Alpiner 4 Automatic
The Alpiner 4 is one of the most emblematic Swiss sports watches, combining beautiful aesthetics while offering performance and accuracy to alpine and nature enthusiasts under the harshest conditions.
Alpina introduces a new version in black PVD-coated stainless steel with its famous red triangle adorning the seconds hand and the 12 o’clock mark on the bi-directional turning bezel, while the Alpina 1883 logo is engraved on the 44mm back case of the watch. The date window is displayed at 3 o’clock and the luminova-treated indexes are delicately placed over the sunray-finished dial. The AL-525 automatic caliber offers a 38-hour power-reserve, the stainless-steel case allows for a 10 ATM water-resistance as well as the other three main features of the Concept 4 anti-magnetic, anti-shock, and stainless steel.

Historiques Triple Calendrier 1942 wins the « Revival» Prize in the 2018 Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève
The Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève (GPHG) awards the “Revival” prize to the Historiques Triple Calendrier 1942 watch. This model is a perfect illustration of a unique savoir-faire. A deliberately vintage look for these new models reinterpreting the creativity and the aesthetic of the iconic timepieces born in the 1940s.
The Historiques Triple Calendrier 1942 watch in its steel version, is inspired by reference 4240, of which the first executions in yellow gold, pink gold or steel were introduced in 1942. In keeping with the original, this understated and elegant model drives the hours, minutes, small seconds at 6 o’clock, along with hand-type date and day and month by aperture. The calendar indications appear in dark blue, on a two-tone silvered dial typical of the era. The sunburst satin-finished centre and the outer zone punctuated by Arabic numerals clearly enhance the legibility of the respective functions and accentuate its retro-chic elegance.
Speaking at the GPHG award ceremony, the Maison’s Style and Heritage Director Christian Selmoni said: “Above and beyond the model itself, this prize rewards the passion and the savoir-faire perpetuated within our Manufacture for generations.The pride Vacheron Constantin takes in developing watches stems from a true vocation, a mission to create beauty, combining the excellence of Fine Watchmaking and horological complications with the refinement of dedicated design and aesthetic. That is what we in the Manufacture refer to as manual intelligence.”
Zenith Unveils Special-Edition Watch In A Philanthropic Partnership With Wounded Warrior Project.
Zenith has launched its first limited-edition timepiece in partnership with Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP). The Manufacture is proud to be expressing its support by making a donation to this charitable organization that honors and empowers injured service members who bravely volunteered to serve their nation on or after the events of September 11, 2001. The new Pilot Cronometro Tipo CP-2 USA Edition watch will be sold nationwide in a limited run of 50 units. This is particularly appropriate for a Manufacture reputed for equipping various armed forces with models meeting their demanding technical specifications in terms of reliability, readability and robustness.
Veteran pilot’s watch
The ranks of Manufacture Zenith historically include models that have made an indelible imprint on watchmaking, notably including its iconic pilot’s watches. The original 1960s TIPO CP-2 is often identified under that name. ‘CP’ stands for cronometro da polso (wrist chronograph). TIPO CP-2 chronographs belong to the exclusive circle of legendary chronographs that have earned the status of exceptional timepieces in both military and horological history and are now sought-after collector’s items. At Baselworld 2016, Zenith presented its tribute to one of the most coveted military pieces, the Heritage Cronometro Tipo CP-2, and is now paying a fresh tribute simultaneously serving a concrete philanthropic purpose.
Stars and stripes for the Pilot Cronometro Tipo CP-2 USA Edition
Commenting on the partnership, Julien Tornare, CEO of Zenith shared: “In recognition of Veteran’s Day, Zenith is honored to partner with Wounded Warrior Project to launch this very special limited-edition chronograph. We are happy to support the important work that Wounded Warrior Project is doing for the nation’s service members and their families through this project. We could not think of a better way to celebrate this moving annual commemoration.”
The 43mm case of the Pilot Cronometro Tipo CP-2 USA Edition features a rotating bezel inspired by the US flag, a theme picked up on the oscillating weight with its Côtes de Genève motif. In addition, for the very first time, the watch features a matte blue dial coordinated with a matching aluminum ring inside the bezel. The triangle marker and hand have both been changed to red. Fitted with a special blue kudu-hide strap with white and red stitching, the USA Edition puts on a modern spin on patriotism and pays tribute to the nation and its soldiers.
Gary Corless, warrior support for Wounded Warrior Project commented: “We’re extremely grateful for the support of Zenith and their newest campaign, which enables us to address the challenges warriors face head-on. Our warriors paid their dues on the battlefield, and never pay a penny for our programs and services.”
The latest in a series of legendary timepieces, the Pilot Cronometro Tipo CP-2 USA Edition indeed offers the ultimate tribute to a legion of brave men and women by celebrating courage, sacrifice and commitment.

The INTERGEM 2018 drew to a close with a mixed picture. The trade fair for gemstones and jewellery in Idar-Oberstein saw 2,900 visitors attend this year’s event, held from 28 September to 1 October, 300 fewer than last year. However, the majority of the 120 exhibitors reported good business.
“The INTERGEM was unable to escape the general situation in the markets,” says the fair’s managing director, Kai-Uwe Hille. “Sales were slow for jewellers, resulting in less demand for new goods. This also had an effect on the number of visitors attending. In view of the overall economic situation in the jewellery sector and the negative trends at the majority of trade fairs worldwide, the specialist nature of the INTERGEM enabled it to perform well – even if not to our satisfaction: we need to work further on optimising the event.”
This was confirmed by Jochen Müller, President of the Diamond and Precious Stones Bourse: “The sector is in crisis, the decline is certainly not due to local reasons.” The lower number of German visitors compared to the previous year was particularly noticeable. Instead, there were more international visitors, particularly from France, Benelux, Great Britain, Scandinavia, Japan, China, USA, Switzerland and Austria, making their way to Idar-Oberstein.
In addition, buyers for prestigious brands such as Louis Vuitton, Bucherer and Wellendorff put in an appearance at the INTERGEM, spending heavily. The fair’s strengths in rare varieties and fine stone qualities were particularly important here.
Despite the fall in visitor numbers, the majority of exhibitors struck a positive note. Roman Ruppenthal of the eponymous Idar-Oberstein firm says: “After a very quiet Friday and Saturday, on Sunday we saw a lot of interest, with good sales. Despite fewer visitors, we were by all means satisfied with the outcome.”
This view is echoed by Vikar Ahmed of AV Gems: “We are satisfied, the number of visitors was lower than last year, but the quality of the purchasers was good. We were able to make some interesting contacts and do good business. We are also confident about the post-fair business.”
Designer Andrea Sohne also draws a positive conclusion: “On Saturday in particular there were not enough people there, but the visitors that did come appreciated the good atmosphere, the relaxed mood and the great selection of unusual gemstones.” These strengths will also form the foundation for the next INTERGEM, from 3 to 6 October 2019.
