BaselWorld 2014 - Beat Haldimann

Beat Haldimann showed his H1 flying central tourbillon and H11 central balance watches at BaselWorld this year.
The big novelty this year is the shape of the hands.  He has also has finally found sapphire crystals with an anti-reflection coating that is up to his standards, a big improvement.  
Beat has discovered vintage Haldimann pocket watches with beautiful heart-shaped hands and has decided to use them on his new watches.  Take a look.  Pictures of the original pocket watch are in the background.

And don't miss Valentin Blank's video of the H1 that he posted here

H1 - still, or now more than ever, the most beautiful tourbillon I know ...

... but the sober H11 is very intriguing as well!


Yes, H1 is THE tourbillon.

This is one watch that everyone should have IMO.  It's such a classic beauty!


What about the H3?

Thanks for the report Don!

Could you see the H3? I mean the one with the minute repeater. It is listed on BH web page but I never saw any picture of it.
