This is the first version of the timepiece to be produced in titanium, a metal Patek Philippe rarely uses. The unique piece features a blue dial adorned with a hand-guilloched carbon-fibre pattern. It is powered by the calibre R CH 27 PS QI movement, which is black rhodium-plated and can be seen through a sapphire-crystal display back.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar Only Watch
This unique piece features a skylight-blue Grande Tapisserie dial, polished counters in solid grey gold and orange-tinted photo-realistic moon, calling to mind the colour palette as dusk settles and daylight wanes. It features a hand-finished black ceramic Royal Oak case, bezel and bracelet and is the first black ceramic perpetual calendar wristwatch with a black ceramic caseback and sapphire display showing a hand-finished black oscillating mass.
A mini J12 set with baguette-cut diamonds sits on a beaded cuff tailored by Maison Lesage, which is famed for its couture embroidery. The combination is a tribute to both Lesage’s savoir-faire and Chanel’s horological expertise, merging fashion and watchmaking with precision and pizzazz.
Armin Strom Manual Hunt Slonem Edition For Only Watch
Swiss manufacturer Armin Strom teamed up with American artist Hunt Slonem to give new meaning to the term, the art of watchmaking. The timepiece in a titanium case features Slonem’s art on the dial and is decorated and hand-engraved with the finesse watch aficionados have come to expect from the independent watchmaker.
Bovet Secret Beauty For Only Watch
Bovet, a master of decorative arts in watchmaking, struts its stuff once again. This timepiece comes with a twist: The watch face changes when the lights go off, thanks to glow-in-the-dark SuperLuminova, and the geisha hand-painted on the dial will bare her female form.
Chopard Superfast 8Hz Power Control Porsche 919 Only Watch 2017
Created with Jacky Ickx, this titanium watch is fitted with a new Chopard high-frequency, highperformance movement. It honours the Belgian motor-racing legend, whose signature is featured on the dial.
Konstantin Chaykin Joker
Telling the time has never been so fun — or funny. The hours and minutes are shown on separate dials that form the eyes of the face, while a moon phase passes for a tongue. The expression changes throughout the day but is always delightfully silly. The Russian watchmaker has given the Only Watch model a special zirconium case and a bright red dial ring, as well as unique engraving on the case back.
Ressence Type 12OW
Ressence teamed up with watch blog Hodinkee for this one-off TYPE 12 model with an open dial and sintered case. The technique, a first in the watch industry, compacts various layers of material into the titanium case by laser heat.
Hublot Big Bang Unico Sapphire Usain Bolt For Only Watch
Inspired by one of Jamaican sprint king Usain Bolt's favourite models, this green and gold design with a transparent strap honours the colours of the Jamaican flag. It will be auctioned with another strap, in yellow-gold calfskin, that features the silhouette of the country’s flag. The watch is crafted from sapphire, said to be one of the most difficult materials to machine.
Hautlence Pinball, Ball-E — Mechanical Pinball
It might not tell the time, but Hautlence’s titanium offering promises the wearer a good time with one of its signature wrist games, a mechanical pinball model. This unique version has a bonus feature: A robot face appears in the dark, outlined by SuperLuminova.
Hermes Slim D’Hermes L’Heure Impatiente Only Watch Edition
