Inspired by the 1858 collection, Montblanc has launched a connected watch combining the aesthetic codes of luxury watchmaking with cutting-edge technology. It features the latest Google operating system, Android Wear, and one of the most advanced processors available on the market, Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2100. A curved sapphire glass protects the dial which can be personalised. The watch contains a microphone for voice commands and many detectors: heart monitor, step counter, gyroscope etc.
Thanks to their robust appearance and outstanding functions, the Aero aviation watches by M-Watch Mondaine convey a taste of adventure. In the version with three hands with date and day of the week displayed on a black dial accompanied by a pierced leather strap or chronograph with cream and black striped Nato strap and matching dial, all these pieces are guaranteed Swiss made and water-resistant to 100 metres. Ronda movements are fitted in the 45 mm stainless steel cases.
Many exceptional technical characteristics hide below the surface of this astonishingly understated timepiece. The finesse, purity of the lines and dial, the innovative architecture of its regulating element, the sharp profile of the hands or the engraving on the caseback lay at the origin of this timepiece. A unique balance can be seen at the very heart of the movement with impressive aerodynamic qualities, generating outstanding regulating performance. Available in a limited edition of 33 pieces in white gold.
Like ballet dancers, this new model has a particularly light touch. The stamped silvered opaline provides a soft frame for the dial embellished by four diamond indexes scattered over the hour circle. The iridescent reflections of this play of light create a genuine sensation of movement. Available in two sizes - 22 mm and 29 mm -, this timepiece makes a distinguished addition to any wrist. Jewellery lovers can wear it discreetly round the neck in a pendant version. Available with two or three hands.
The brand continues its journey across the Scafograf world with a seductive GMT version. Behind its cult lines, this self-winding model features a triple time zone which is adjusted by the position of the rotating bezel and that of the central GMT hand. Fashioned in steel, the bidirectional bezel has an insert in black or blue ceramic material depending on the chosen version of the curved dial which is also available in the same colours. This watch is fitted with a black or blue rubber strap or a steel bracelet.
This elegant and sophisticated high performance timepiece is designed for women. Set with 60 diamonds, the bezel rounds off the dial in snow white mother-of-pearl or velvet chestnut. This COSC certified timepiece features the in-house CFB A2050 calibre with central hour and minute display, a small seconds hand at 6 o’clock and the date at 3 o’clock. The self-winding movement derives its energy from a winder mechanism fitted with a peripheral oscillating weight, acting in both directions of rotation.
Ideal for a day at sea or an appointment in the city, this model features a dial with striking contrasts and perfect legibility when diving. Reinterpreting the triangular indexes of the house, this timepiece is available in three colourful modern versions. The unidirectional bezel is enhanced by a touch of bright orange, a direct-drive seconds-hand and a matching minute circle. The bi-colour Nato wristlet ensures maximum comfort, while the steel version has its own distinctive styling.
With this self-winding timepiece, Breguet has successfully feminized a timepiece whose aesthetic essence resides in the watch mechanism. In its centre, the upper side features a barrel decorated with a rose window on which a mother-of-pearl dial with Clou de Paris engine-turning is juxtaposed at 12 o’clock. Although they are exposed, the bridges and gear trains are discreet to permit instant reading. The bottom plate and bridges with a sand-finished aspect are rhodium-plated contrasting with the case in rose gold set with 68 diamonds.
Skin is embarking on a new era with its collection of ultra-slim and ultra-flexible watches. The range comes in eleven different models with minimalist styling available in two sizes, regular and big, which are worn lightly, giving their owner a sensation of freedom. This new design embodies comfortable and easy to wear elegance with an innovative bi-colour double injection-moulded case. From Skinskin to Skinnoir, to say nothing of Skinamour, each watch has a distinctive curving line of its own.
Chic and relaxed, the Happy Sport line surprises us by diving into the deep blue of the oceans. Water-resistant to 300 metres, this timepiece sports the famous dancing diamonds of the Happy Sport line on its dial. Its bi-colour rotating bezel features notches which are reminiscent of waves. The indexes and hands light up in different colours. Fitted with a self-winding movement made in house with a 60 hour power-reserve, the Happy Ocean has a Nato bracelet, a first in the Chopard collections for women.
As the first timepiece to feature a mechanical digital display, this watch takes its inspiration from electronic watches of the 70s. Based on a complex interplay of cams and carriages, the in-house movement - known as D1 - is powered by a gold micro-rotor and displays the hours on segments at the centre of the dial. A hand placed on a sapphire disc discreetly indicates the advancing minutes. Available in a titanium or titanium and 5N rose gold version, each limited to just 25 copies.
This reinterpretation takes on new attributes. With an eminently contemporary design, the curved lines of the yellow gold coloured steel case espouse the contour of the wrist. Depending on the particular version, it features black and chestnut or red and black enamel incrustations. The maker’s signature is revealed subtly, showing the fine character of the new Milanese mesh bracelet. At 6 o’clock and 12 o’clock, two diamonds add a touch of light to round off this timepiece with its elegant modern style.
