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.

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.

How to choose an engagement ring?

How to choose an engagement ring

At GENEVE, we are here to help you live life’s greatest moments to the fullest. The engagement ring represents a major step, commitment and, most importantly, great love. We can’t convince your beloved to say yes, but we can help you choose the perfect engagement ring. Here are our tips!

Define her tastes

It would be a shame to give her a ring that does not suit her. For this reason, the first thing to do is to determine your future fiancée’s style. Does she like timeless looks or, on the contrary, does she prefer to wear unusual, extravagant clothes? Is she discreet, or does she like to assert her personality? If she usually wears jewellery, make sure to look at it closely. Does she wear yellow or white gold? Is her jewellery classic, bold, colourful? All of the answers to these questions will give you an initial idea about the ring of her dreams!

Which material to choose?

You should choose a colour and material for the ring that she will never want to take off. So, do not hesitate to take a look at her jewellery box to determine which colour she likes best. Is it white, yellow or pink gold? If you are doubting between two colours, we are here to help you choose which will suit her best based on her complexion. Know that white gold is extremely popular for engagement rings, as it is a solid, resistant and precious material.

Which stone to choose? 

After choosing the metal, you will need to select the stone that will adorn the ring. The diamond is the gemstone par excellence. However, you can certainly opt for a blue sapphire, an emerald or a ruby. 

Know her ring size

Another aspect that is as important as the rest: the size of her finger. When you give the ring to your soon-to-be life partner, she will want to put it on immediately. That is why we suggest that you discreetly borrow one of her rings to bring to us, so that we can determine her ring size. In the event that she does not wear jewellery on a daily basis, you will have to be inventive and describe the size of her finger in as much detail as possible.

All you have to do is ask for your dearly beloved’s hand and enjoy this magical moment.

Anya Taylor-Joy, the new face of the Reverso Classic Duetto

jaeger-lecoultre anya taylor-joy

This year, Jaeger-LeCoultre has sought out a new face, a symbol of elegance. The Swiss watchmaker has chosen the talented actress Anya Taylor-Joy as a new ambassador. Let’s take a closer look at Anya Taylor-Joy, the latest Reverso Classic Duetto and the wonderful models that we carry at our GENEVE shops.

Anya Taylor-Joy and Jaeger-LeCoultre, a perfect match

Anya Taylor-Joy was born in Miami to Anglo-Argentine parents. She spent her childhood in Buenos Aires and London. You are likely to have seen her in critically acclaimed roles like in the series The Queen’s Gambit. She is also part of a family with close ties to Polo, and she herself is very interested in watchmaking. The actress perfectly embodies timeless elegance and multifaceted charm. For Jaeger-LeCoultre, there is no doubt that she is the epitome of the Reverso Classic Duetto. 

The new Reverso Classic Duetto

The Reverso Classic Duetto timepiece is both elegant and brilliantly modern. It draws its inspiration from the codes of Art Deco style with its rectangular case, reversibility and iconic gadroons. The latest piece is a reinterpretation of a model from the late 1930s that features a similarly elegant, although completely different, style on the other side of the dial. This feminine watch has two sets of hands. It also features the three-lined gadroons, 12 Arabic numerals, two-tone finished dials and sword-shaped hands. The distinguished look is enhanced with the circular graining adorning the inside cradle. Two different perspectives offering incredible beauty and finesse to all who wear it.
