It […] Visit Introducing: The Corum Bubble 47 Central Tourbillon × Label Noir — A Buoyant Return Of The Superdome to read the full article.

When are we going to accept that fashion brands can make legit timepieces? 5 amazing references from rulers of the runway

If a luxury brand is synonymous with handbags or jewellry, most watch collectors won’t usually give them the time of day, as we tend to get hung up on the fact that these names are known more for haute couture than haute horology. Despite the best efforts of the watch press, a whole segment of … Continued The post When are we going to accept that fashion brands can make legit timepieces? 5 amazing references from rulers of the runway appeared first on Time and Tide Watches.

Independence Journey: From A One-Man Show To A Successful Independent Kari Voutilainen, Founder and Owner of Voutilainen SA (Switzerland) February 6, 2023 Watch manufacturing has always been a complex endeavor that requires expertise in many different areas. That expertise is usually spread out with a network of suppliers or a large manufacturer. Being able to concentrate that expertise with one small team, independent of traditional industry suppliers, is not an easy thing to do. But some watchmakers have done exactly this and have shown remarkable success. One such independent watchmaker is Kari Voutilainen. At the February 6 meeting of the Horological Society of New York, Voutilainen will discuss his journey from a "one-man show" to a small and totally independent workshop producing incredible mechanical watches. Doors open at 6PM ET, lecture to begin at 7PM ET. RSVP is required. Due to the anticipated demand for this lecture, tickets will be released according to this schedule: January 30, 2023: HSNY Gold Members January 31, 2023: HSNY Silver Members February 1, 2023: HSNY Bronze Members February 2, 2023: General Public The lecture video will be available to members immediately, and to the general public following a two-month delay.

VIEW THE GALLERY HSNY Introduces Three New Financial Aid Opportunities for 2023 Honoring Innovation in Horology, Watchmaking Students & School Watches The Horological Society of New York (HSNY) is welcoming 2023 with three brand new financial aid opportunities for watchmaking students in the United States: The Charles Sauter Scholarship for Innovation in Horology, the Charles London Scholarship for Watchmaking Students, and the Simon Willard Award for School Watches, created to further support HSNY’s mission of advancing the art and science of horology. About the Charles Sauter Scholarship for Innovation in Horology Horology may seem like a mature science, but there are still opportunities for improvement in all aspects of the field. There are many examples of innovations in horology that improved our lives, and HSNY is committed to fostering meaningful innovation through scholarship. A Pennsylvania native, Charles Sauter (1922–2016) studied mechanical engineering at Pennsylvania State University and later studied watchmaking at the Hamilton Watchmaking School. After a stint in the U.S. Army, including time at the Manhattan Project, Sauter joined Bulova Watches as an instructor, where he encompassed many different positions including working as the Principal Engineer for the Accutron watch and as the Principal Engineer for the Apollo 17 Lunar Seismic Profiling Experiment.  CLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL ANNOUNCEMENT...  DEADLINE TO SUBMIT APPLICATIONS IS WEDNESDAY, MARCH 1, 2023. DON'T DELAY! HSNY Welcomes Europa Star as a Sponsor The Horological Society of New York (HSNY) announces Swiss publishing house Europa Star has joined as a sponsor. Europa Star, which is currently offered to HSNY members worldwide, operates a network of international publications covering the watch, jewelry and microtechnology sectors.   The company's origins date back to 1927, when Hugo Buchser, its founder, was a young Swiss entrepreneur with a passion for watches. An experienced traveler and globetrotter, he toured the world for his own watch brand called Transmarine and then had the idea to launch a guide for watch buyers as a first step into the world of publishing. This guide quickly became an essential tool for the entire watch industry.  Under the impetus of Gilbert Maillard, Buchser's son-in-law, who became president of the company in 1962, the network of magazines published in various continents and languages were grouped together under the Europa Star brand in order to cover all the international markets and become a truly global publishing company, establishing Europa Star as a leader in the watch industry's specialized press.  CLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL ANNOUNCEMENT...  HSNY Welcomes Paul Boutros and Lenise Logan as Trustees The Horological Society of New York (HSNY) welcomes Paul Boutros, Head of Watches, Americas, for the Phillips Auction House, and Lenise Logan, President of Kalpa Art Advisory, Inc., to its board of trustees.

Find the first post here and the second here. Some might be tempted to think that all technology that exists today is digital, but as watch people, we know that watchmakers still use their hands–their digits–to create intricate, accurate, and beautiful timepieces. As a new member in the world of horology, I’m interested in this kind of artisan labor, and as a librarian, I’m also interested in a different kind of handiwork: handwriting in old books, that shows how these books were used and loved. One example I recently found in the HSNY archives is a note in a book published in 1824 in London, The Book of English Trades.¹ This book, which was reprinted in many editions, would have been an important resource for young people seeking to learn how to get into “the business”–any business. It contains 78 trades listed in alphabetical order, with details of what qualifications you might need for an entry level position, and helpful illustrations that would allow someone who lived before the internet to understand, say, what a printing shop looked like, or what you needed to start making straw hats for a living.
