Welcome to Haute Time Timepiece Madness! Our Haute Time curators have carefully selected the hautest timepieces shown at this year’s Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) and Basel World 2012. In our haute spin on March Madness, 32 of the most luxurious and technologically advanced timepieces from the finest watchmakers will compete against one another–with two timepieces going head to head each week, for readers to vote for their preference within each faceoff. The competition will be fierce and each week will deliver faceoffs between the most coveted timepieces in the world. The watches with the most votes, at the end of the week, will be deemed hauter than their challengers and advance to the next round. The single timepiece remaining at the end of the tournament will be crowned with the distinction of being our ever-discerning readers’ favorite new timepiece. That’s haute.
