Hublot Big Bang Pop Art Collection

 "A timepiece that brings the avant-garde spirit of the Pop Art movement to life"

THE ART OF FUSION GETS A SPLASH OF COLOR WITH THE BIG BANG POP ART

Bright, bold and strikingly colorful. Inspired by the Pop Art movement of the 1950 and to a greater extent the 60s, the Big Bang Pop Art collection is a horological canvas for artistic expression. A veritable fusion between the worlds of watchmaking and modern art, it is the very notion of challenging the conventional that Hublot related to in Pop Art.

Much like how Andy Warhol took American popular culture and reinterpreted them into vividly colored paintings, the Pop Art reinterprets Hublot’s signature Big Bang into the most prismatic ladies’ line to date; watches that are as much mechanical marvels as they are pieces of wearable art.

The Big Bang Pop Art come in either steel or, something of a rarity for Hublot, yellow gold cases that capture the retro spirit of the Pop Art movement. Accentuating the playful colors of the dial, the bezels are skillfully set with baguette cut precious and semi-precious stones, including blue topaz, purple amethyst, pink sapphire and green tsavorite.

CAPTURING THE STROKE OF A PAINTBRUSH

Against a rich blue background, the chronograph registers and indexes are truly one-of-a-kind, painted in two contrasting colors. Around the register and markers one is given the impression of paintbrush strokes with paint matching the chronograph registers. The date wheel blends in perfectly with its matching blue tone.

The strap is just as brightly colorful as the rest of the watch, done in alligator leather with a contrasting colored rubber backing for added comfort, flexibility and durability.

Hublot continues to explore the realm of Pop Art and modern art in general, as can be witnessed from the collaboration with Brazilian artist Romero Britto’s Pop Art-inspired football design for the for FIFA 2014 World Cup, as well as promoting young emerging modern artists such as Gao Ludi in China and Hebru Brantley in the USA.

Bovet Watches | Récital 11 "Miss Alexandra"

bovet-watches-chicago

Geneva Seal Fine Jewelry & Timepieces, a Chicago watch and engagement ring boutique is the only Authorized Dealer for Bovet watches in Illinois. The Bovet Récital 11 “Miss Alexandra” features the same precision phase of the moon and characteristic hands of the Récital 9 Tourbillon. The hour and minute hands are offset at 6 o’clock.

Their atypical silhouettes, forming a heart every hour, stand out clearly against the guilloché surface of the finely-worked mother-of-pearl dial crafted by artisans of the Dimier 1738 Dial Manufacture.

With its assurance of proven reliability and chronometric precision, the self-winding movement of this new timepiece guarantees a power-reserve of 72 hours, or three days. A comfortable margin, since it allows the timepiece to be taken off for an entire weekend and put back on without the need for any adjustments.

The precision moon phase module was entirely developed and manufactured by artisans of DIMIER 1738. More complex than a traditional indicator, this precision complication requires only a single one-day correction every 122 years. Its display method was also revised. Rather than showing two moons on a moving disc, here the moon is rigidly attached to the dial. The system features a disc engraved according to an exact cartography of the lunar surface.

Hollow parts have been filled with luminous material. As a result, the moon appears exactly as it can be observed in the sky and therefore seems to directly reflect the sun’s light. The sky through which the earth’s satellite moves has been chased and black treated.

The Manufacture’s engravers then reworked this sky so that bright points appeared, reminiscent of stars. Two circular pallets moving above this assembly are decorated with the same motif as the sky. Reading the phase of the moon is therefore both intuitive and realistic.

Diamond Ring | Geneva Seal Fine Jewelry & Timepieces

Geneva Seal Fine Jewelry & Timepieces, a Chicago engagement ring and watch boutique located at 112 E Oak Street houses the rarest diamonds in the world. Recently added to our collection of diamond rings is this stunning 18K white gold domed band ring with 167 round brilliant cut diamonds. 

Who doesn't love diamond rings? Not only are diamond rings romantic gestures that profess your love for each other, but they also are stunning fashion accessories. Diamond rings are elegant gifts that can be used to celebrate a personal milestone such as graduating from college, having a baby, or getting promoted. Diamond rings are often used to symbolize a shared commitment or given simply because they are beautiful and significant. No matter what the occasion, a diamond ring is a gift that always brings joy.

If you've ever wondered why your diamond ring looks different in sunlight versus candlelight or daylight versus office lights, it's because the cut of your diamond responds differently depending on the light and the environment you are in. How - and where - you look at your diamond can greatly change its appearance.

URWERK Unveils a Lady's Piece & It's One of the Sexiest Watches We Have Ever Seen

URWERK watches have a strong reputation. They are rare, technically advanced, elaborate to the point of complexity, and classy. Yet URWERK watches have lacked in femininity - that is - until now.

The new URWERK watch, the UR-106, is the first from the independent brand that is made for women. Elegant slender and graceful, it shows the sensitve side of URWERK's nature. For you, ladies, URWERK unveils the UR-106 "Lotus".

The UR-106 “Lotus” features the brand’s signature satellite hours in a guise never before seen. Three satellite hours wander across the dial to create the most graphic of horological blooms. Martin Frei, the company's chief designer and co-founder said: 

“We never made watches for men and watches for women because we never thought in those terms when we put our ideas down on paper. We thus embarked on a stylistic exercise that was unprecedented for us.
We have of course long considered what we regard as the ultimate challenge, because creating for women is indeed a perilous undertaking. With its glittering gemstones and soft curves we created the UR-106 with one image in mind; that of the lotus flower, which in my imagination represents the beauty of women in all their complexity.”

Geneva Seal Fine Jewelry & Timepieces, a Chicago watch and jewelry boutique is the ONLY Authorized Dealer for URWERK in Illinois.

Hublot Big Bang Broderie Watch | Chicago

Geneva Seal Fine Jewelry & Timepieces in Chicago is proud to house The Hublot Big Bang Broderie watch is irresistible fine embroidery – the most feminine of materials – worn directly against the skin it is synonymous with intimacy… Romantic and sexy, embroidery is the stuff of fantasies.

As delicate as it is frivolous, it embodies a savoir-faire which masters the subtle art of discreet revelation. Hublot continues to revisit Arts and Crafts in its own distinctive way, here paying homage to the memory of our grandmothers’ needlework with this fine St. Gallen embroidery – an ancestral art which is 100% Swiss Made – created by Bischoff, the leading Maison Suisse.

hublot-big-bang-broderie

The creative teams from both companies came  together to develop an exclusive pattern in order to create a fusion with the Big Bang’s iconic design. It shows a rebellious spirit, with its skull pattern on a dial studded with 11 diamonds, and soft arabesques on the bezel and strap – a technical feat which took several months of Research & Development.

After the embroidered elements produced in St. Gallen were delivered to Hublot in the canton of Vaud, part of the solution was found and developed in the Jura: in a process akin to the manufacture of high-tech carbon fibre components, the elements embroidered on tulle are encased and moulded – like a stack of sheets – in carbon fibre to amplify the texture. The process is new and exclusive.

The components are then assembled in the Hublot manufacture in Nyon, the ladies’ timepiece being completed for connoisseurs with an HUB1110 automatic mechanical movement featuring 63 components and 21 jewels. 42-hour power reserve. The Big Bang Broderie, the ultrafeminine watch now featuring the most delicate details, is initially available in 3 versions: gold, silver or All Black, studded.

When deciding on the engagement ring, choosing a metal type could be a little difficult. Geneva Seal in Chicago recommends considering her preferred jewelry style when deciding on the precious metal of her engagement ring. 

Yellow Gold is for the bride who wears a lot of yellow gold jewelry. Choosing this metal for her engagement ring will complement her current style and taste. Yellow gold is a classic choice for engagement rings, complementing those with warmer skin tones.

White Gold is for the bride who wears mostly white gold or sterling silver. White gold offers a smooth contemporary appeal and blends well with other jewelry pieces and clothing colors.

If you're unable to decide on a metal for your engagement ring, go with both. An engagement ring similar to the 2 carat round cut diamond engagement rings below are always a timeless option.

#TBT: Mother's Day Love: Meet the Geneva Seal Family Part II

"All that I am or hope to be, I owe to my mother." Abraham Lincoln

Mother's Day is extra special at Geneva Seal Fine Jewelry & Timepieces in Chicago. Being a family-owned business, family is first, second and third. We wanted to honor the amazing women who created the Geneva Seal family by introducing them to our digital family.

From our family to yours, here's a little motherly love we're happy to share with you.

Alex Kats has a vivacious mother who comes to the boutique quite often. Alex's parents don't live in Illinois, but whenever they're in town, his mother Rachel comes to Geneva Seal to work. Rachel used to organize and set the business in the right direction a long time ago, but when she's in town, you best believe she continues where she left off. She comes in at 9am and doesn't leave until the end of the day.

Much like his mother, Alex has a work ethic you don't see in most people. He doesn't take a day off and will stand for most of the day, giving Geneva Seal his 110% on a daily basis. I was talking to Michael, our Geneva Seal jeweler yesterday and he told me that Alex's leadership changed him from being a salesperson to a friend. Alex's clients always brag about his honesty and laid back approach and we definitely believe in thanking his mother for those sincere compliments. Happy Mother's Day Rachel. We hope to see you soon.

Igor's mother Larisa in no way looks like a mother of two grown adults, let alone a grandmother to three teenagers. Larisa is Alex's mother-in-law, making Igor his brother-in-law. They are closer than most brothers and their family bond is unbreakable.

I met Larisa at the Geneva Seal holiday dinner. Her and her stunning daughter, Alex's wife Irene laid out the most amazing and tasteful spread you could imagine. I could tell that these two ladies were the bond that holds this family together. Irene raises two teenage girls, a husband, and works full-time as an optometrist. I'm not sure how she finds the time to manage her schedule, but she makes it look effortless.

There's strength in motherhood no one but a mother could understand, which reminds me of the story Alex told us about Irene. Two days after his wife gave birth to their beautiful daughter, she was back at school to take the test which determined her becoming a doctor. Strength like that is rare and once again, the only woman to thank for acquiring such strength is her mother Larisa.
