- The manufacture Vacheron Constantin celebrates its 250-year anniversary – it was founded in 1755. For this reason, in addition to three other new releases, the Tour de L'Ile is presented an extremely valuable and elaborate watch which unites many complications. Furthermore, the first edition of the later continued series Métiers d'Art is presented, which comprises models of elaborate enamel or gold engraving and impresses by an unusual time display via digital discs. This model wins the “Aiguille d'Or” Grand Prix at the Grand Prix d'Horlogerie de Genève in November.
- The Glashütte manufacturer Nomos brings out the model Tangomat with its inhouse produced self-winding movement, first as a test watch, then as the official sale. The movement has been constructed by the 29 years young Mirko Heyne. At the same time also the Nomos manual winding movements are converted to self-production. The company can therefore call itself a true manufacture.
