Millions of tourists visit Switzerland every year for its famous Alpine ski resorts and five-star spas on pristine lakes, but watch lovers know another Switzerland that combines the thrill of horological discovery with breathtaking scenery. Instead of the resorts and casinos of Lugano or the glamour and excitement of St. Moritz and Gstaad, they are drawn to the hamlets of Fleurier and the charms of Lake Neuchâtel, and instead of Alps, they savor the scenic peaks and valleys of the rugged Jura Mountains. This is the birthplace of watchmaking, a mecca for watch aficionados and the perfect destination for anyone READ MORE

DeLaneau had their own artists making watch the faces right there so READ MORE

Green Light: DeLaneau Rectangular Dôme Sunrays Watch

What you can’t easily tell by looking at the dial of this attractive and artsy timepiece is just how complex the mechanics of it actually are. A mere handful of watch makers have been able to achieve the development of the movement type located on the inside — for its sheer defiance of how standard mechanical movements want to work. The automatic movement displays both the hours and minutes in what is called a “jumping” style format. The digits are located on discs that move behind the dial. They “jump” into place (rather than slowly move all the time) when READ MORE
