Honouring centuries of watchmaking expertise, the Classique Tourbillon Quantième Perpétuel 3797 and 3795 are assured favourites from this year’s Breguet novelties. The dial of the 3795 model vanishes to make room for a skeleton that divulges all the erudition of the movement’s construction, while open-tipped hands in blued steel and lace-like engravings ensure a second look.
The Oyster Perpetual Day-Date is crafted exclusively from precious metals. The bezel can be fluted, domed or adorned with the most striking precious stones, while the crystal is made of fundamentally scratchproof synthetic sapphire. The watch’s aesthetics are complemented by the ‘President’ bracelet with semi-circular three-piece links.
The new Ulysse Nardin Classico Luna timepiece draws inspiration from the moon, bringing its celestial magnetism to watch lovers everywhere. The self-winding model is set in rose gold on a leather strap. It makes reading the moon’s phases simple, given the moon phase that is set over a corrector at the 4 to 5 o’clock position.
The Millenary 4101 heralds a neo-classical aesthetic with its sleek form and signature off-centred dial in a unique oval shape. Available in steel or pink gold and set on a square-scaled, hand-stitched crocodile leather strap, the watch is for the male with a marked preference for udacity.
A gleaming reflection of German speed machines dating back to the 1930’s, the Mille Miglia GT XL Chrono Speed Silver is set in a titanium case with minute numerals like those in dashboard speedometers. Aerodynamic titanium pushers, along with a tachometric scale engraved on the bezel, augment its sporty appeal.
The Master Ultra Thin Date from Jaeger-LeCoultre comes in a fully polished 18k pink gold case that is both imminently suave and timeless. The eggshell beige dial features a date aperture residing at 6 o’clock and is offset by a brown alligator leather strap.
The latest addition to the Corum Bridges collection, Golden Bridge is a truly captivating automatic that gives a 360° view of the Caliber CO 113 movement — ideal for dedicated aficionados and watch collectors. The tonneau-shaped case stages an 18k gold upper bridge bearing the hand-engraved signature of the brand.

Setting new design trends for refined horology, the Patravi AutoDate TwoTone 38mm is the ideal companion for both active daywear and sundown sophistication. The combination of stainless steel and 18k rose gold extends from the circular case to the bracelet, making an intense frame for the matte white dial.
The guilloché pattern screwed crown with a red-lacquered circle is the first thing to strike you about the Chiffre Rouge A03. But in its entirety, the snazzy timepiece is a true illustration of masculine style, featuring a black dial and brushed steel case that are complemented by a handmade semi-matte black alligator strap.
The TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 5 Automatic sports a fully refreshed update of the easy-to-read dial that made the original such a trendsetter. The hand-applied TAG Heuer logo, indexes and date window are stunning in their sophistication, as is the fixed bezel in polished solid gold.
The almost-minimalist pink gold and black Tambour éVolution Tourbillon Volant is the first automatic calibre with a flying tourbillon to be assembled in the workshop. Light as air and watertight to 100 metres, it features an extremely sparse dial and houses a self-winding mechanism.
Demonstrating elegance in simplicity, the Britain Chronograph makes a statement in smoked grey. The gunmetal-plated case houses a sunray dial with Super-LumiNova hands, protected by an anti-reflective, scratch and shock-resistant sapphire crystal glass for the adventurous.
