DE­FY­ING CON­VEN­TION

Singapore Tatler Jewels & Time - - Reviews -

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, Bre­itling has re­leased a pro­pri­etary new ma­te­rial called Bre­it­light, that’s 3.3 times lighter than ti­ta­nium, but harder than steel, on its 50mm Avenger Hur­ri­cane time­piece. Hublot, mean­while, has bared the in­tri­ca­cies of its in-house Unico move­ment with a sap­phire case. Ulysse Nardin, on the other hand, uses wood mar­quetry on the dial of its Grand Deck Marine Tour­bil­lon to beau­ti­fully evoke a ship’s deck.
