Timezone watch of the year 2012

In 2010 the TimeZone Watch of the Year went to Jaeger-LeCoultre for their Duomètre à Quantième Lunaire. I think this marked the ‘official’ approval of connoisseurs of Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Dual Wing system. Last year, independent watchmakers Tim and Bart Grönefeld won the TimeZone Watch of the Year 2011 with the Grönefeld One Hertz. Something that was celebrated in style during our yearly schniztel dinner in Basel, during Baselworld 2012.

So, now the choice is up to you! Here at the Timezone website you can see photos and descriptions of all seven finalists. You can vote for your favorite timepiece, here at the Timezone website.
