Tag Heuer Launches New Watch Line
When looking for the best watch news, you should consider checking out the latest Tag Heuer watch line. They are launching three new watches at Baselworld this year, which will be available to purchase later this month.

Breitling Introduces Solar Power Movement Technology
At Baselworld 2019, Breitling introduced its new Solar Power Movement Technology. Over the last five years, Breitling developed a movement that can power the watch for up to five days when fully charged by solar energy. This allows wearers to enjoy their timepieces at any time of day or night without any risk of winding or manual battery replacement. Furthermore, the self-winding rotor never needs to turn while exposed to light and will last much longer before it becomes unserviceable.
Hamilton Creates a New Everyman Brand of Watch
Hamilton introduced a new line of watches called Everyman to the world for the first time at the 2014 Baselworld watch trade show.

They also have a good size, not too big but not too small either (that means it's perfect for smaller wrists).
Seiko Invents New Timekeeping Technology
Today, Seiko has announced a new timekeeping technology available on their watches starting in 2021.

As a result, we have found a way to significantly improve accuracy, said Mr. Hattori, without changing the fundamental design.
Omega Reinvents Its Movements

Omega Buys Audemars Piguet, Patek Philippe Sells Majority Share to Invest Group
On December 4th, Omega acquired Audemars Piguet, one of the most historic watchmakers. Initially founded in 1875 by a Parisian goldsmith, Audemars Piguet was also the only Swiss company to offer an annual calendar wristwatch until it stopped production of this line after World War II. As for Patek Philippe, this prestigious brand sold its majority share to an investment group led by Henry Kravis and the late Stephen A. Schwarzman, who will now serve as board co-chairmen. Founded in 1839 by Antoine Norbert de Patek and Adrien Philippe as Patek, Czapek & Cie (later Patek Philippe & Co), the company has always been family-owned and operated in Geneva, Switzerland.

Named after watchmaker Antoine Norbert de Patek, the Patek Philippe brand was established in 1839 as a manufacturer of high-quality timepieces. And while they are most known for their luxury timepieces, they also produce moderately priced fashion watches and jewelry.
With so much good news coming out from this company, it is no wonder that its stock has been steadily rising ever since last year. With new store openings across Asia and promising partnerships with other companies, it will be interesting to see what changes lie ahead for this brand!
