This refined yellow gold timepiece combines the best of the 1950s with today’s technology. The sunburst motif on the domed dial plays with the light. The retro-look numerals are coated with Super-LumiNova, as are the hands and date window. The yellow gold PVD-treated case surfaces alternate between a polished gleam and a satin-brushed finish. The lines formed by the lugs flow into a triple-row bracelet featuring satin-brushed and polished centre links and sides.
The Le Brassus company is adding two 38mm models to its Code 11.59 collection, designed to fit even the daintiest wrists. The contemporary 18-carat pink gold case features an octagonal middle integrated between the extra-thin bezel and the round caseback. The two timepieces feature a purple or ivory-coloured dial, stamped and adorned with outwardly receding waves. They are powered by Calibre 5900 and complemented by an alligator strap.
With its discreet profile, classic style and aesthetic variations that are both modern and ageless, this timepiece reflects the watchmaker’s understated luxury and contemporary elegance. It is available in four colours: ivory white, mint green, blossom pink and serene blue. The interior of the rectangular Roman dial features a guilloché look, creating a striking contrast. Adorned with 38 diamonds, the case houses the L178 quartz movement and the overall look is complemented by a matching alligator strap.
Following its Rose Carrée, an exclusive timepiece designed on the basis of a Grande Sonnerie calibre and presented in 2021, the watch Maison based in Val-de-Travers unveils Les Roses Carrées “Collection Grand Feu”. These five one-of-a-kind timepieces feature a minute repeater movement combined with exceptional engraving and enamelling. Respectively named Rosa Cosmica, Rosa Celeste, Rosa Mundi, Rosa Alba and Rosa Mystica, these treasures vividly illustrate the expertise of the Manufacture’s artisans.
The Le Locle-based Maison pays tribute to frogmen with a new version of its diving watch designed in the 1960s, equipped with an alarm that can be heard underwater and displays decompression stops. Designed by French retailer Ocarat, the Lagoon blue dial features a subtle blue gradient enhanced by a touch of yellow, while retaining its original vintage spirit. The timepiece, produced in a 25-piece limited edition, is powered by the Vulcain Cricket V-10 manual-winding movement.
A pillar of the brand’s collections, the BR 03 line has been enriched by a new timepiece paying tribute to the world of aeronautics. Issued in a 999-piece limited edition, it is equipped with the self-winding BR-CAL 302 movement housed in a 41mm black ceramic case with the typical “circle in a square” shape. The dial features the eye-catching outline of a fighter plane: the aircraft’s nose indicates the hours, while the minutes hand features a generous white arrow.
With its emblematic stainless steel and yellow gold case, the latest addition to the 1911 collection is distinguished by the brilliance of its champagne-beige mother-of-pearl dial and its ten diamond hour-markers. This brilliance is further accentuated by the 60 gems sparkling on the yellow gold bezel. The date is displayed in a discreet round window at 6 o’clock. This daintily elegant timepiece is available in two sizes (30 and 34mm), with a two-tone bracelet in steel or a strap in an environment-friendly beige fabric.
This timelessly elegant collection has been enhanced by a new creation in pink gold with a gradient sunburst midnight blue dial. Beating at the heart of the 39mm case is the new-generation Jaeger-LeCoultre 925 automatic calibre. The long tapering applied triangular hour-markers echo the dauphine-type hands. The moon phases are displayed through an aperture at 6 o’clock, while the date is indicated by a small hand on the ring surrounding this window.
To celebrate its 35th anniversary and the 15th anniversary of its tourbillon calibre, the Geneva-based brand is unveiling its Classic Tourbillon Meteorite Manufacture in platinum. This exceptional timepiece, produced in a 35-piece numbered limited series, features a meteorite dial barely 0.5mm thick. The aperture at 6 o’clock reveals the FC-980 tourbillon movement equipped with a silicon pallet-lever and escape-wheel. All the components are entirely hand-finished.
Inspired by an oriental basket-making technique, this 45mm white gold pocket watch features a pair of proud horses facing each other, like yin and yang. Issue in a single-piece edition, this interpretation of the equestrian world dear to Hermès combines engraving and horsehair marquetry. For the weaving adorning the cover and dial, the horsehair strands were selected, cut and then individually glued to create the motif of the first steed. Using burins and chisels, the engraver then brought the second horse to life.
