Oris Aquis Date Upcycle, a unique and fun watch

oris aquis date upcycle

Do you want to wear a watch that is totally unique and special? Then the Oris Aquis Date Upcycle is for you! Oris has a daily commitment to fighting against plastic pollution in our oceans, and to further this fight the watchmaker chose to release a watch to reflect this initiative. In this post, GENEVE introduces this watch model and explains how it is made.

A timepiece made from PET plastic

Unlike other watches by the brand, this model is made from a recycled synthetic material called PET plastic, which is part of the polyester family, a manmade synthetic material derived from petroleum. As the watch is made from this recycled material, each blend is unique and no two dials are exactly the same. Oris wanted to prove that it was possible to create a watch that was both beautiful and made from recycled plastic, and they did an excellent job!

For all wrists 

There are two Oris Aquis Date Upcycle models to ensure that no one is left out. Indeed, you can choose between a 41.5 mm diameter and a 36.5 mm one, ensuring that the watch will adapt to your wrist. Both sizes contain the Oris 733 automatic calibre based on the Sellita SW200-1, which builds up a power reserve of 38 hours. The model features all the elements of a diving watch, i.e., the screw-down crown, the unidirectional rotating diver’s bezel, the luminescent dot and the luminescent hands and indexes. The timepiece is water resistant to a depth of 300 metres. The ceramic bezel has an attractive light grey colour that contrasts with the coloured details of the dial. Meanwhile the dial is surprising, fun and colourful and gives your wrist an artistic touch.

How to wind your watch

wind watch

Do you have a hand- or self-winding watch? These types of watches need to be wound from time to time to ensure that they continue to work properly. If you are unsure how to proceed, GENEVE explains what you need to do!

Hand winding

As you know, unlike self-winding watches, hand-winding watches must be wound by the owner. Otherwise, the watch will stop working. Before doing so, find out the power reserve of your timepiece. Based on this power reserve, you will need to wind the timepiece more or less often, for example in the morning before putting your watch on. Some watches have a long power reserve (80 hours), which will allow you to wind it less often. To do so, all you have to do is turn the crown clockwise until you feel resistance. Do not force the crown. When you are finished, all you need to do is set the time.

Self winding

Self-winding watches are wound automatically through the movement of the wrist, which causes the oscillating weight to rotate back and forth. When a self-winding watch is worn daily, there is no need to wind it. However, if it is not worn for several days, the power reserve will run out and the watch will have to be wound by hand. Similar to a hand-winding watch, self-winding watches are wound by turning the crown clockwise until you feel resistance. Once you have finished this first step, all you have to do is set the time!

What if diamonds really were your best friend?

diamonds

Who doesn’t dream about wearing one or more beautiful diamonds? This beloved gemstone has become a jewellery must. In addition to having a pure, unique beauty, diamonds also offer (often unsuspected) benefits. Here is a closer look at this stone whose popularity is well founded!

The benefits of diamonds 

Diamonds are known for detoxifying the body. They can be considered cleansers, purifiers. According to Indian beliefs, diamonds are an excellent remedy for exhaustion. They lead to a long life and, above all, good health.

Diamonds are said to boost the wearer’s confidence and creativity. The stone is able to purify the soul and expand energy. Diamonds also protect against harmful thoughts and negative energy. 

Hence, it goes without saying, diamonds are good for the body and for the soul.

The diamond selection at GENEVE

At GENEVE, we carry a wide array of diamond jewellery. Here is our selection of sparkling pieces.

Siempre un icono: Chanel Première

montre première

«La moda pasa de moda, el estilo nunca», si esta frase le resuena, seguro que el reloj que le vamos a presentar le encantará. Porque Chanel no es sólo Alta Costura o maquillaje, sino también relojes que resisten el paso del tiempo sin arrugarse. Centrémonos en el Chanel Première, un reloj minimalista y totalmente único que nos hace girar la cabeza. 

Los orígenes del Première

Gabriele Chanel imaginó todo, desde el perfume, el maquillaje, la joyería y la marroquinería, por lo que le quedaba crear un reloj. ¿Pero cómo llamarlo? Chanel es una Casa refinada y elegante que siempre va al grano y a lo esencial. Un nombre parecía obvio. El primer reloj de Chanel se llamaría simplemente: Première. En 1987, los relojes solían ser redondos. Pero Chanel no quiso ser como los demás y optó por innovar creando una nueva geometría de reloj inspirada en la forma del tapón de su famosa fragancia Nº5. La correa también es única, ya que toma la cadena de cuero entrelazado del emblemático bolso acolchado. Nace el Première, el reloj rompe los códigos de la relojería tradicional y se convierte inmediatamente en un referente.

El Première a través de los años

El Première sopla sus 55 velas y continúa siendo muy actual. Los modelos de la gama se mantienen relativamente cerca de su antecesor. Sin embargo, las manecillas y el grosor de la caja se han perfeccionado para lograr una mayor comodidad y delicadeza. En cuanto al movimiento, por supuesto, se ha optimizado: es más preciso y tiene una mayor autonomía. Y el detalle que marca la diferencia es el cierre, que tiene forma de «C» en total coherencia con la Casa, mientras que en su momento tenía forma de «T».

A thousand and one shades of pearls

pearls

Pearls come in all kinds of sizes and colours. Often perceived as classic, they are making a comeback and looking more modern and radiant than ever. Do you want to know more about this gemstone? Learn more about pearls and discover our selection of jewellery.

How do pearls form?

Pearls are the result of a natural phenomenon. They form inside oysters when a foreign substance slips inside their shell. The oyster then protects itself by covering the intruder with layers of nacre, eventually resulting in a smooth, round, nacre pearl. These highly coveted natural pearls are used by many brands, because the gift of pearl jewellery is a timeless piece that can last a lifetime.

What do pearls symbolise?

The pearl is a gemstone that symbolises elegance, refinement and confidence. Often associated with Venus, the goddess of love, it conveys femininity. It is also the stone that represents 30 years of marriage. This trendy gemstone is an integral part of today’s fashion. 

Our selection of pearl jewellery 

Each pearl is unique, no two are the same, which is why we like to work with them to create extraordinary pieces.

Un cronógrafo, tres variaciones. Descubra el Panerai Luminor Chrono.

panerai luminor chrono

El primer modelo Luminor se remonta a finales de los años cuarenta. En ese momento, Panerai eliminó lentamente el radio de los índices y lo sustituyó por una capa de tritio. El reloj Luminor se distingue por su diseño único, en particular por su puente de protección de la corona, sus asas fabricadas con el mismo bloque de acero que su caja en forma de cojín y su bisel plano y ampliado. Nos centramos en el cronógrafo de Panerai, disponible en tres modelos.

El Panerai Luminor Chrono, un cronógrafo preciso y potente

El Luminor Chrono está equipado con un movimiento mecánico de cuerda automática. El calibre P.9200 late a una frecuencia de 28.800 alternancias por hora y ofrece una reserva de marcha de 42 horas. Las correas están disponibles en piel de aligátor o de cocodrilo y también en acero. Son fácilmente intercambiables para que puedas cambiar de look según tu estado de ánimo. Los tres cronógrafos son resistentes al agua hasta 100 metros.

Bonitas proporciones y detalles equilibrados

Más allá de su precisión y potencia, las líneas del Luminor Chrono no pasan desapercibidas. Está equipado con una caja de acero satinado de 44 mm, un tamaño que se adapta perfectamente a las muñecas grandes. El bisel es de acero pulido. La esfera está disponible en tres colores: azul, negro y blanco. Todas las esferas tienen un acabado satinado con rayos de sol y números arábigos e índices luminiscentes. Las esferas en «sándwich» y la anchura del reborde proporcionan una legibilidad óptima. La idea de un cronógrafo es inculcada por los pulsadores que se encuentran frente a la posición de la corona.

Si le atrae este reloj de hombre, puede elegir entre los tres modelos que le ofrecemos en nuestra tienda o en nuestra página web.

Cases from every angle

watch case

When choosing a watch, you do so based on a range of criteria, including the material, the colour, the design and the shape. The case shape is crucial, as it is an expression of your personality. While we usually go with a round shape –the most popular–, there are in fact others to choose from. You will increasingly come across different shapes, such as rectangular or even triangular. Let’s take a closer look at case shapes.  

Different case shapes

Here is an overview of the most common case shapes in the world of watches. 

The standard shape: round 

The quintessential classic shape, a round case suits both men and women. It is an easy-to-wear shape for every occasion that goes with every style of clothing.

The geometric shape: square and rectangular 

Square and rectangular dials and cases have been very popular in recent years. These shapes, which convey a more serious and formal image, are often used in the watch industry. 

The feminine shape: oval

The oval is a highly regarded shape among women. With this shape, it is possible to stick with a rounded form while adding a touch of originality.

The in-between shape: cushion-shaped

Are you deciding between square and round? Then the cushion shape is made for you! This square shape featuring rounded corners captivates enthusiasts with its unconventional lines.

The ultra-masculine shape: barrel-shaped

Drawing on the silhouette of a barrel, this shape is used less often than the others. It is more popular with men than with women. It is a bold choice that looks good with a range of styles.

Come visit our shops to learn more about our models! We look forward to helping you discover all the secrets of our case shapes. You will inevitably find the perfect one for you.

Elegance and durability with the Portofino Chronograph 39

gisele bundchen iwc portofino chronograph 39

The new IWC Schaffhausen campaign focuses on the latest addition to the Portofino collection, the Portofino Chronograph 39. It is worn by supermodel Gisele Bündchen. Here is a closer look at this timepiece that is both elegant and durable, like the new muse.

The perfect ambassador for the Portofino Chronograph 39

Gisele Bündchen, the new face of the Portofino Chronograph 39, perfectly represents the environmental values that are so dear to IWC Schaffhausen. The famous Brazilian supermodel is part of this focus, serving as IWC’s first Environmental & Community Projects Advisor. Moreover, she has been a UN Environment Goodwill Ambassador since 2009. In the campaign, Gisele Bündchen wears several watches from the brand, most notably the new Portofino Chronograph 39, an elegant designer timepiece. A collaboration that makes perfect sense.

A chronograph for everyday use

The 39 mm chronograph has a stainless steel case, a silvered dial and rhodium-plated hands. It is powered by the IWC-manufactured 69355 calibre. The durable and precise chronograph movement features a classic column-wheel design allowing for the measurement of time intervals up to 30 minutes. It is visible through a domed sapphire glass that has anti-reflective coating on both sides and builds up a power reserve of 46 hours. The watch is water resistant to 5 bar. The Portofino 39 comes with a beige calfskin strap. The strap can be changed quickly and easily, allowing you to go with a different style whenever you want.

Jewellery that matches your skin

jewellery skin

Pieces of jewellery are not simply fashion accessories; they reflect the personality of the wearer. From white gold to yellow gold, there are many metals used in the design of jewellery creations. Did you know that some metals suit you better than others? While it is important to follow your tastes and instincts, don’t hesitate to ask your jeweller for advice to help you choose the metal that is best for you. Below are our tips on choosing your jewellery according to your skin undertone as well as a selection of jewellery that may be just right for you.

Know your skin undertone

It is not always obvious which skin undertone you have. The easiest way is to look at your wrist, especially your veins. Do you have blue veins? Then you have a cool skin undertone. Do you have green veins? In this case, your skin undertone is warm. If you are not sure, it’s because you have a neutral skin undertone.

Which metals and stones are best for warm undertones?

Naturally tanned and sun-kissed skin will undoubtedly be enhanced by yellow gold, which will highlight and illuminate the skin. Warm undertones can also opt for rose gold jewellery. As for stones, we advise you favour yellow, orange and green ones. Yellow sapphire, imperial topaz and emerald are your best bets.

Which metals and stones are best for cool undertones?

Cool skin undertones, and thus paler complexions, are enhanced by silver, white gold and platinum. These metals can be paired with red, purple and blue coloured stones such as rubies, amethysts or even blue sapphires for a pure, fresh look.

Which metals and stones are best for neutral undertones?

Those with neutral undertones are very lucky, because you can wear anything. Indeed, you can switch from white gold to yellow gold without a second thought and even wear them together if you want. To stay on top of the latest trends, you can have a wide variety of jewellery to create beautiful combinations.
