Golden El­lipse – Rare Hand­crafts

The sto­ried watch­maker cel­e­brates half a cen­tury of the Golden El­lipse with this spe­cial edi­tion, which is lim­ited to 100 plat­inum time­pieces, each com­ing with a pair of match­ing cuff­links. The “golden” in the name refers to the golden ra­tio math­e­mat­i­cal for­mula, which is ex­pressed in the watch’s half- rec­tan­gu­lar, half- cir­cu­lar shape. But most strik­ing of all are the bold vo­lute pat­terns, exquisitely hand- en­graved into the black- enam­elled gold dial plate.

Cape Cod Mir­ror

The Cape Cod man­ages to be square and rec­tan­gu­lar at the same time – by cut­ting its an­chor chain mo­tif in two for the lugs. Her­mès also had a lit­tle fun with the Mi­lanese mesh bracelet: it’s dou­bled to make it not only more se­cure but also more play­ful. The rhodi­umplated dial, pol­ished like a mir­ror, sports highly stylised hour num­bers. The watch is avail­able in large and small sizes – and an op­tional sin­gle bracelet for those who don’t want to dou­ble the fun.

Pan­thère de Cartier

These clas­sic watches are all about the bracelet, which on some ver­sions of the Pan­thère de Cartier is length­ened to coil two or three times around the wrist in sleek, sen­su­ous fash­ion – at­tributes of­ten as­so­ci­ated with the big cat that gives the col­lec­tion its name. In pink gold, white gold, yel­low gold or steel, or a com­bi­na­tion of pink gold and steel, they’re also avail­able with a di­a­mond pavé bezel. All fea­ture Cartier’s sig­na­ture blue hands.
