ROLEX Oys­ter Per­pet­ual Cos­mo­graph Day­tona Rolex,

the of­fi­cial time­keeper of For­mula One, marks high qual­ity per­for­mance with the new Oys­ter

Per­pet­u­alCos­mo­graphDay­tona. Bestowed with a Su­perla­tive Chronome­ter cer­ti­fi­ca­tion, this 18K yel­low gold watch is pre­cise to the or­der of −2/+2 sec­onds per day after cas­ing, more than twice the re­quire­ments of an of­fi­cial chronome­ter. The im­pres­sive move­ment is the Cal­i­bre 4130 me­chan­i­cal chrono­graph, equipped with a self-wind­ing mod­ule fea­tur­ing a Per­pet­ual ro­tor and patented Parachrom hair­spring in the os­cil­la­tor, mak­ing it vir­tu­ally im­mune to shocks and tem­per­a­ture fluc­tu­a­tions. Atop the 40mm case is a patented monobloc Cer­achrom bezel en­graved with a highly leg­i­ble tachy­met­ric scale marked with a thin layer of 18K gold. The

Cos­mo­graphDay­tona re­mains firmly at­tached to the wrist at high speeds thanks to the Oys­ter­flex bracelet fit­ted with an 18K yel­low gold Oys­ter­lock safety clasp that pre­vents ac­ci­den­tal open­ing.

HUBLOT Big Bang Fer­rari Unico Car­bon

The speedy BigBangFer­rar­iUni­coCar­bon in uni­di­rec­tional car­bon by Hublot is a piece that any Fer­rari lover will ap­pre­ci­ate. The Fer­rari de­sign prin­ci­ples are clearly seen through the rhodi­umplated dial, where the minute counter and date window are di­rectly in­spired by the Ital­ian sportscar man­u­fac­turer’s dis­tinc­tive tachome­ter gauge, while the sec­onds counter re­sem­bles an air ex­trac­tor. The nu­mer­als are po­si­tioned in line with the in­dices, cre­at­ing a cool 3D ef­fect that com­pletes the watch’s au­to­mo­tive spirit. Em­bla­zoned across the left-side pro­file of the 45mm car­bon case is the Fer­rari name, while the stream­lined push­ers with dual red stripes are in­spired by the ped­als from Fer­rari car cabins. Un­der the hood lies the Hublot Man­u­fac­ture Unico au­to­matic fly­back chrono­graph move­ment, with the col­umn wheel vis­i­ble on the dial side and an os­cil­lat­ing weight re­sem­bling the iconic star spoke de­sign of the Fer­rari wheel rims.
