The magic of passing time
The complicated world of high-end watchmaking crosses time, anticipates it, directing research towards innovative dimensions. Measuring time, but that's not all. Because we are won over by the sidereal aspect of a superior crafted watch, like that by A. Lange & Söhne, the “1815 Rattrappante Perpetual Calendar Handwerkskunst“, which, with an exquisite blend of engraving work, is dominated by the moon in relief on solid white gold within a ring of blue enamel, with raised stars set against puffy clouds. It offers pure sophistication and unique decorative techniques on an unusual dial, which is comprised of five components and conceals a calibre L101.1 with 631 elements. Instead, it is the blue sapphire-set diamonds that captivate in Audemars Piguet's “Diamond Outrage“, the latest in the trilogy after Diamond Punk and Fury. Like a rose of ice crystals, this piece of jewellery comprises a cuff covered in diamonds or sapphires of 65 carats in the shape of blue cones, with the watch set on a white gold base, a dial hidden under one of the cones and the ‘heart' powered by a calibre 2701 quartz movement. Instead with gentle curved lines, bevelled bezel and domed dial, enclosing a diamond of 4.7 mm at 6 o'clock, “Luna“, the bright stellar timepiece by de Grisogono combines feminine sophistication with the playful representation of infinity. The asymmetrical inspiration of a harmonious silhouette transforms this watch into a jewel. The case is embellished with traditional setting and random bezel setting, and the dial with ‘sauvage' setting with some 35 different diameters of stones. A dream. “Cat's eye La Fenice“by Girard-Perregaux, inside an oval feline rim, pays homage to Venetian theatre with a drape of 83 emerald-cut diamonds ( approximately 3.97 carats) and 10 brilliant diamonds (approximately 0.21 carats), enclosed in a hand-polished white gold knot, interwoven with mother-of-pearl of iridescent reflections on a palette of pastel colours. Calibre GP033000101 with 195 elegantly finished components. In collaboration with The Watch Gallery, Hublot - “Classic Fusion Chronograph Aerofusion Red“offers a 45 mm case with a sporty feel and red-coloured lacquered rings on the dial, that enhances the rhodium-plate and highlights the stitching of the black alligator strap. It features a satin-finish titanium case and self-winding skeleton chronograph movement with 42-hour power reserve. Stunned amazement is reserved for IWC “Da Vinci Perpetual Calendar Chronograph“with round “da Vinci” design, 43 mm case with a thickness of 15.5 mm, sapphire glass back, blue screws and exclusive decorative polishing on the bridges, enclosing a complex calibre 89630 movement. In a single dial with double chronograph and lunar phase complication. With bezel adorned with brilliant-cut diamonds, Jaeger-LeCoultre - “Rendez-Vous Sonatina Séduction“blends pure artistry that includes guilloche', painting on mother of pearl (two birds over a field of lavender) in an effusion of blue and violet, and gem setting with a three-dimensional light effect, a piece of artistic creation and romantic originality, the fruit of Métiers Rares techniques. Calibre 735, self-winding movement. Piaget “Altiplano Feather Marquetry“is masterwork of style meets

innovation. This exquisite watch features a white gold case with 78 brilliant-cut diamonds that enclose a dial with a web of peacock, duck and chicken feathers partially covered in silver leaf, enclosing an ultra-thin 430P movement. And if you're fond of world records, the lightest (less than 40 grams) split second tourbillon chronograph in the world, the Richard Mille “RM 50-03 Tourbillon Split Seconds Chronograph Ultralight McLaren F1“has arrived. It incorporates TPT Carbon and graphene (developed by working with the University of Manchester), a nano-material six times lighter than steel and 200 times stronger. The watch has titanium dial, profiled case inspired by the wishbone suspension structure of the McLaren-Honda F1 car, which incorporates a movement of only 7 grams, and a blend of grade 5 titanium and TPT carbon for the baseplate and bridges. It is, however, the black Cerachrom monobloc bezel and engraved tachymeter to increase the dial's legibility that introduces Rolex, which presents three new versions of its “Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona“: with silvered dial for the 18-carat white gold version, champagne dial for the 18-carat yellow gold version or everose dial for the18-carat rose gold version. They feature a calibre (4130) with optimised components and reliability, as well as the surprise of a brand-new Oysterflex black rubber bracelet, which consists of a very elastic blade covered by a high-resistance elastomer. We take a leap into a glorious past with Vacheron Constantin “Historiques American 1921“, the modern version of a classic Art Deco watch. It features sand-blasted silvered metal, excellent legibility, and interprets an elite but distinctive design. Unusual is the shifted orientation of the dial: the subdial of the small seconds is positioned at 3 o'clock, perpendicular to the axis of the repositioned crown, which would correspond to 4.30 on a traditional dial. Movement reliable: Calibro VC 4400. A mosaic of attractive proposals, but beyond the aesthetic and technical allure, a timepiece lives on the wrist of whoever wears it. Because the search for beauty and pleasure has no boundaries.
