DEEP DIVE BLANC­PAIN

With its more than 280 years of his­tory, Blanc­pain has a rich source of in­spi­ra­tion. This year, the world’s old­est watch brand presents the Trib­ute to Fifty Fath­oms MILSPEC, which harks back to a pioneer­ing divers watch of the 1950s. The orig­i­nal, which held a num­ber of im­por­tant patents, was cho­sen by many coun­tries to equip the div­ing teams of their armed forces. The Trib­ute to Fifty Fath­oms MIL-SPEC is an au­to­matic in a 40mm stain­less steel case, and has a four-day power re­serve. It in­cludes all the sig­nif­i­cant fea­tures that made the orig­i­nal so ground­break­ing in 1953, and it is wa­ter-re­sis­tant to 300 me­tres.

FAST AND FU­RI­OUS HUBLOT

Two pres­ti­gious brands unite in the Tech­frame Fer­rari Tour­bil­lon Chrono­graph by Hublot, a lim­ited edi­tion open­work time­piece cre­ated to mark the Ital­ian mar­que’s 70th an­niver­sary. The watch comes in gold, car­bon or ti­ta­nium, each lim­ited to 70 pieces. Fer­rari’s Flavio Man­zoni cre­ated the de­sign while Hublot sup­plied the horo­log­i­cal ex­per­tise, giv­ing the 45mm watch its new HUB6311 cal­i­bre with one-minute fly­ing tour­bil­lon. The dial re­sem­bles a race gauge and the red touches are syn­ony­mous with the Fer­rari mar­que. The man­ual wind­ing watch has a five­day power re­serve.
