Patek Philippe Ref­er­ence 5208T-010

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.

This is the first bi-colour ver­sion of An­der­sen Gen­eve’s Tem­pus Ter­rae created to mark the model’s 25th an­niver­sary. It fea­tures a white gold bezel, a red gold case and a white gold hunter case 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.

Chanel J12-XS

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.

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

This Only Watch ver­sion is clad in spiffy black with yellow ac­cents, but is pow­ered by the same me­chan­i­cal self-wind­ing H1912 Man­u­fac­ture Her­mes move­ment found in other L’heure Im­pa­tiente watches.
