In the winter of 2014, the twelfth issue of the Great Magazine of Timepieces (GMT for short) was long overdue, but finally met with readers before Christmas. Today, GMT Magazine has gone through 15 years, and the Jaeger-LeCoultre Duomètre Sphértourbillon Moon watch has appeared on the cover of the new issue. This watch has been properly adjusted for its moon phase function. , Errors will not occur until 3,887 years. Although it is impossible to conquer time itself, Le Sentier’s Jaeger-LeCoultre Grande Maison (Grand Workshop) explains the watchmaking industry’s unremitting pursuit of innovation. In order to elevate the brand value to a new level, Jaeger-LeCoultre turned her energy to the creativity and shaping of space, which also gave her a more charming charm. In the foreword, the Chairman of the Swiss Watch Association, Jean-Daniel Pasche, talked to GMT magazine readers more about the stakes of 2015, which is already a ‘decisive stage’ for the watchmaking industry.
The fifth element that combines earth, water, wind, and fire is intangible, but its value is infinite and universal. Even if we try our best to shape it, unlike those perishable things, human beings cannot control and modify the fifth element, but each of us has a responsibility to protect, respect and share. Time is the key, and GMT Magazine has been explaining this key significance for 15 consecutive years. Alternatively, you can pick a timepiece published in a new issue of the magazine and listen to her heartbeat and emotions. This extraordinary experience will definitely stimulate your strong interest in the art of timekeeping and try to approach these delicate objects. Try again.

This GMTeaTime picture was taken by the famous Swedish photographer Martin Botvidsson. It can be described as a harmonious unity of visual and olfactory appeal. By analyzing the similarities between the Breguet Classique Chronométrie 7727 watch and the Arab World Institute (designed by Jean Nouvel), the Zurich architect Axel Leuzinger builds a bridge between the historical and technological world. As described in the 12th issue of the magazine, when the watchmaker tried to draw inspiration from classical art, the fifth element’s omnipresent influence on the watchmaking industry was immediately revealed. Some watchmakers also spent a week disassembling and assembling the Richard Miller ultra-thin tourbillon RM 017 watch and sharing the exciting and extraordinary experience with everyone. So, has the fifth element found its own ‘Ark of the Covenant’?
