WOSTEP The WOSTEP Watch Ref­er­ence 100

A group of 16 alumni from WOSTEP, a school in Switzer­land that trains watch­mak­ers from around the world, col­lab­o­rated on this time­piece. It is the first school watch made at WOSTEP that is be­ing of­fered to some­one who has not stud­ied at or grad­u­ated from WOSTEP. With all the 16 names en­graved around the bezel and case­back rim, it is also re­port­edly the first watch ever to have been signed by so many no­table watch­mak­ers.

MB&F Horo­log­i­cal Ma­chine N°8 Only Watch

MB&F worked with young bal­let dancer Cas­san­dra Le­gen­dre to cre­ate this unique HM8 in white gold and ti­ta­nium. It fea­tures a sap­phire crys­tal en­graved with a draw­ing created by the 15-year-old, along with a minia­ture white gold ele­phant be­tween the hours and min­utes. A smi­ley face re­places the MB&F logo, an ap­pro­pri­ate el­e­ment given that Only Watch raises funds for a con­di­tion that af­flicts mainly the young.

De Bethune DB1318-OW2017 Piece Unique

The ta­ble chronome­ter boasts unique horo­log­i­cal en­gi­neer­ing and is said to be among the most ac­cu­rate in the world. It is based on the em­blem­atic ar­chi­tec­ture of Yacht Club de Monaco and billed as an “ex­cep­tional piece of con­tem­po­rary de­sign and a tremen­dous demon­stra­tion of crafts­man­ship”.

Agen­hor X HEAD Carpe Diem

This is the first and only Agen­hor-branded time­piece, as Geneva-based Agen­hor spe­cialises in de­vel­op­ing move­ments and com­pli­ca­tions for other brands and is not a brand. Agen­hor worked with Geneva Univer­sity of Art and De­sign (HEAD) to pro­duce this de­sign of a trans­par­ent ball mag­ni­fy­ing the cut­ting-edge chrono­graph move­ment. Carpe Diem is pow­ered by the world’s most ad­vanced chrono­graph move­ment, which Agen­hor un­veiled ear­lier this year.

Lau­rent Fer­rier X Ur­wek Ar­pal One

This de­sign is billed as the ex­cit­ing joint ef­fort of two in­de­pen­dent watch­mak­ers that could not be more dif­fer­ent. Lau­rent Fer­rier is the mas­ter of clas­sic time­pieces while Ur­w­erk is a mav­er­ick brand famed for its bold orig­i­nal­ity. The re­sult is a sleek, fu­tur­is­tic de­sign in­spired by clas­sic 1930s au­to­mo­biles, blend­ing tra­di­tion with in­no­va­tion.
