Hong Kong Tatler - - Contents - JAEGER-LECOUL­TRE

Is­sued in a lim­ited edi­tion of 1,000 pieces, the Po­laris Me­movox fea­tures the spe­cial alarm function made fa­mous by the 1968 ver­sion of the watch, in­di­cated by a small tri­an­gle on a ro­tat­ing disk in the cen­tre of the dial. On the case back of this 50th an­niver­sary edi­tion are two en­grav­ings: a stylised div­ing hel­met – a nod to the orig­i­nal model – and a “50th an­niver­sary” in­scrip­tion

A LANGE & SÖHNE A new mem­ber of the Sax­o­nia watch fam­ily, the au­to­matic Sax­o­nia Out­size Date comes with a dis­tinc­tive black dial that fea­tures the date in a large size, as well as sub­sidiary sec­onds. It’s avail­able in white or pink gold.

VACHERON CONSTANTIN The uber-func­tional self­wind­ing Over­seas Dual Time was a hit this year with its strik­ing blue dial. The watch fea­tures a second time zone in­di­ca­tor and date.

TU­DOR The Black Bay con­tin­ues to be one of Tu­dor’s bestsellers and this lat­est it­er­a­tion, the Black Bay S&G, comes in a strik­ing com­bi­na­tion of yel­low gold and steel, with the ad­di­tion of a date function.

BREITLING The B01 is the lat­est ad­di­tion to the avi­a­tion-in­spired Nav­itimer 8 se­ries. The B01 Chrono­graph 43 comes in red gold or steel.
