Equipped with a mysterious star running around the periphery of the dial, this piece incorporates an all-new function discreetly reminding the wearer of an appointment by a limpid sound. At the selected time, a note sounds under the pressure of a single hammer stroke. Adjustable at the level of the first crown, this function comes as a surprise to the wearer’s ear: hence the limpidity of its name, Sonatina, with a melodious accent. Available in rose or white gold this timepiece is powered by the in-house 735 self-winding calibre.
The Clifton collection has been broadened to include this new model destined for travellers and fitted with a GMT function. Displayed at 12 o’clock the latter is completed by a power reserve indicator at 6 o’clock and a date aperture at 3 o’clock. This elegant model comes in a 43 mm case with polished and fine-brushed finishes. On the deep blue dial the triangular hands and direct-drive seconds hand move against Arabic numerals and polished rhodium indexes enhanced by a minute-circle. This piece is powered by a self-winding movement.
To celebrate the fifteenth anniversary of its famous Chronofighter, Graham is launching four new models. With their distinctive lever on the left of the case, these watches with a touch of British eccentricity in their design, propel nostalgia for the past into the future. Despite their imposing appearance, they are in fact extremely comfortable to wear thanks to the slender horns and a supple leather strap. The self-winding GG1747 movement beats below a navy blue, chestnut or black dial; a 48 hour power reserve is provided.
The vertiginous architecture of this timepiece in grade 5 titanium or rose gold can be admired through a glass dome. At the very heart of the mechanical movement the trio consisting of the balance with recessed screws, the cylindrical balance-spring and the Swiss-style pallets has been developed and manufactured in-house. At 12 o’clock, two barrels mounted in series ensure a seven-day power reserve. Placed at 5 the big date consists of two conical aluminium discs. An ingenious notepad at 3.30 reminds the wearer of his appointments.
Bulgari highlights poetry and bold design by uniting the finest expertise in watchmaking with its talent as a jeweller to create these timepieces whose dials are fashioned by arts and crafts techniques enhanced by such a sophisticated skeleton finish that the two aspects combine. This is nature in full colour reflecting the art of gardening enriched with 76 brilliant cut diamonds. The BVL 208 hand-wound movement used in this timepiece provides a 64 hour power reserve.
For the first time ever, Cartier has added one of the most challenging complications of all, the minute repeater, to its mysterious movement. At the heart of a Rotonde model, this encounter takes up two challenges: the first is technical and consists in putting 448 components together in an 11.15 mm case. The second is aesthetic with the pierced mechanism and contrasting black rhodium-plating displaying the transparency of the double mysterious tourbillon and revealing, on request, the rhythmic tones of the minute repeater.
This revisited Golden Bridge comes in a small round version specially made for women. The hand-wound CO113 baguette movement can be admired through a light and airy structure designed by Dino Modolo. The association of a round case and horizontal movement superbly decorated with engravings and resting on its side create a magical effect. The resin and precious diamonds which surround the fully exposed calibre add colour, style and brilliance to this watch in the art deco style.

HYT has introduced its fluid technology to a pocket watch. For the first time the Metropolis luminescent module is associated with a skull. This module comprises two LEDs positioned under the rider at 6 o’clock. It works like a dynamo: converting mechanical power into luminescent energy. The dynamo is charged by rotation. Pressure on this pushpiece then activates the LEDs which bathe the piece in a soft blue light for five seconds. This process does not require the use of a battery.
