September 2014 : 2nd edition …

The only watch magazine to be circulated around the entire world (across over 80 countries) in the same version, the GMT XXL World No. 2 was published in late September for the opening of the Monaco Yacht Show, an event hosting the highest concentration of UNHWIs per square mile at the time. Just as it did last year, this magazine with its iconic format and top-rate Haute Horlogerie content has since set off on its journey to meet clients of Art Marine (Middle East marinas), Christie’s, Julius Baer, Kempinski, Lamborghini and Prestige Yacht. Passionate watch enthusiasts remain the core target for GMT, of which the XXL World version is also distributed at the entire range of watch shows taking place on three continents between October and March, as well as by the best retailers on the planet. With Patek Philippe on the front cover and Richard Mille on the back, readers savor a “mille-feuilles” brimming with emotions and innovations, delighting the senses with a stunning blend of Haute Horlogerie and Haute Joaillerie creations. Also available at and from the main digital newsstands.
