Please RSVP if yo can join us for an evening with Martin and his new models from this years' Baselworld show in April. He developed a new watch with an ultra slow beat, so that one can see the oscillating wheel change direction. New materials, namely silicon, have enabled this technology to exist whereas previously this was not possible. Sporting a huge 18mm balance wheel, Martin has executed a real coop with this masterpiece.
Check out this video:
He'll also be bringing with him, last years amazing watch, the Tourbillon Perpetual Calendar. I was able to have Martin describe some of the features found in this piece during a short video I recorded on his visit to Passion last year.

We're going a bit "off piste"‚ in this Blog post, by introducing our Passion friends to the wonderful world of African Travel. Tim's brother-in-law Rich Hilton, based in Cape Town, owns a specialist Travel company, helping all inbound foreigners to Southern Africa plan their perfect vacation. Oh, and if you're into wine, he's also a boutique Cape wine producer too, with a vast knowledge of all things vinous.
So if you've been toying with the idea of a trip to Africa, but just don't know where to start or who to trust, look no further!...Please read on
From Richard Hilton, Founder and MD of Greatest Africa Travel:
"As a boutique wine producer in the Cape, with over 20 years‚ experience in the industry, both in Burgundy, France, and here in the Cape, I saw an opportunity a few years back to start offering exclusive private wine tours for discerning wine lovers visiting South Africa. I'm passionate about the 350 years of wine-making history in the Cape and wanted to share my knowledge and experience with travelers to our beautiful yet complex country! From private wine tours the offering mushroomed into a full service travel advisory company ˆ Greatest Africa - arranging clients‚ entire vacations to South Africa including Safari experiences, wine tours and fantastic hotels in Cape Town and the winelands with all the necessary air and road transfer in between. This year we launched our new website www.greatestafrica.com which also incorporates trips and safaris to other African countries like Botswana, Tanzania and Kenya. Personal service and trust are key (Tim and Janna know this!). Africa can seem a daunting country if you have not been here before. We are on the ground here in Cape Town and only recommend hotels and lodges that we have personally visited. We will create a tailored holiday itinerary to suit your budget and interests, and are here to look after you once you arrive in South Africa, should anything go wrong!
We are offering all friends of Passion Fine Jewelry a very special deal, if you book a trip with Greatest Africa:
