DEFYING CON­VEN­TION

Hong Kong Tatler - - Style -

Watch­mak­ers are al­ways find­ing new ways to pique our in­ter­est, and the use of un­con­ven­tional ma­te­ri­als is one way to do it. A num­ber of brands were sport­ing new el­e­ments this year, such as Tu­dor, with its use of bronze in its lat­est Her­itage Black Bay watch. In its quest for more durable but light­weight watches, Bul­gari used a com­bi­na­tion of mag­ne­sium, ce­ramic and polyether et her ke­tone( Peek )— ma­te­ri­als used widely in avi­a­tion and F1 racing—in its Di­agono Mag­ne­sium Chrono­graph. Hublot, mean­while, part­nered with leather spe­cial­ist Ber­luti in fash­ion­ing the di­als and straps of the Clas­sic Fu­sion Ber­luti. Ulysse Nardin, on the other hand, used wood mar­quetry on the dial of its Grand Deck Marine Tour­bil­lon beau­ti­fully to evoke a ship’s deck.
