Fine Watch Journals

"60 brands and close to 170 watches, hand-picked by experts at the FHH"

Haute Horlogerie journals, 2014

Each year since 2012, the Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie has published its Fine Watch Journal. Experts in watchmaking, including an historian, a watchmaker and a specialised journalist, make their selection of the year's most noteworthy launches.

No other publication offers an exhaustive and independently compiled inventory of the emblematic timepieces proposed by brands in the Fine Watch segment. Certain conditions guide this selection, such as to include a maximum of four watches per brand, and to feature only those which display genuine innovation in their mechanisms or aesthetic. The result is a no less reliable view of advances made in the industry as a whole.

For the third edition in 2014, experts from the FHH reviewed 60 brands and selected close to 170 watches. Black emerged as one of the year's trends, beefing up the contours of sports watches or underscoring the virtues of a classic design, which continues to express itself in extra-thin timepieces.
