HAMILTON KHAKI TAKEOFF AUTO CHRONO LIMITED EDITION
With this timepiece, you have a system that allows you remove it from the wrist strap entirely and mount it in a presentation box, perfect for display. It is inspired by a clock Hamilton Aviation produced during the WW2. Its 46.3mm case is made of stainless steel with black PVD, and the gauge that drives the calibre H-31 is automatically loaded with 60 hours of power reserve.

PARMIGIANI TORIC RÉSONANCE 3
Parmigiani has exceeded itself again with this beautiful watch, which has the date included atsix o’clock. But what is this again? A large date, which requires a lot of energy to rotate the disks, and at every midnight the change is as quickly as the hundredth of a second. This is achieved through a double ingenious cam developed by the watchmakers of the brand. Moreover, it includes a minute repeater with cathedral gong, which is activated by a trigger on the left side of the case. The movement is the hand-wound calibre PF359. White gold case with engraved bezel. Correa Alligator skin strap created by Hermès.
CHOPARD LUC TOURBILLON QF
The new tourbillon model in the Chopard LUC collection does not need many arguments to convince us that it is a remarkable watch. Its powerful gold case of 43mm, the grey dial, the “dauphines” hands and Roman numerals, handwound LUC 02.01-L with nine days of power reserve and of course, the beautiful tourbillon that dominates the whole form—all reason enough to surrender. Moreover, it is the world’s first watch manufactured with Fairmined gold from South America—meaning the gold has been mined to fulfill strict social and environmental requirements.
GIRARD-PERREGAUX TRI-AXIAL TOURBILLON
If we were already overwhelmed by the technical efficiency achieved with the Constant Escapement L.M. 2013, watchmakers Girard-Perregaux now surprise us with a tri-axial tourbillon. That’s three different rotating axes and at different time intervals (the tourbillon cage a completes rotation in one minute; the second axis completes rotation in 30 seconds; both are inserted into a third axis which rotates together in two minutes). Even more spectacularly, they decided to show it in a sapphire crystal bubble, allowing you to enjoy their movement. The case is 48mm, made in rose gold and with a hand-wound calibre GP093000001 with 52 hours of power reserve. Limited to 10 pieces.
It is impossible for Hautlence designs to go unnoticed. There are four models of the Destination in different materials (steel coated black DLC and grade 5 titanium with different treatments). The watch displays the hours and minutes, date and moon phases, plus a dial for a second timezone with 12 hours at six o’clock. It’s an unusual distribution of elements, yet simple and easy to read. Two models have dials decorated with Clous de Paris and the other two have honeycomb decoration. Its movement is an automatic calibre 9351/A10-2 from Soprod with 42-hour power reserve. Comes with alligator leather strap.
GRAHAM SILVERSTONE RS SKELETON
The firm led by Eric Loth decided to eliminate its characteristic and functional chrono trigger with this piece. The reason? They chose to focus their attention and the attention of their clients on the inside of the watch, and were given the task to skeletonise the G1790 automatic movement, which remains a chronograph activated by conventional push buttons. The beautiful mechanism can also be observed through a lateral opening at 10 o’clock. The 46mm case is made in DLC black steel, while the bezel is made of black ceramic and has tachymeter scale. It has a 46-hour power reserve.
HARRY WINSTON PROJECT Z8
Zalium is not a magic word, but the name of the material—resulting from combining zirconium and aluminium—mades it harder than titanium and highly resistant to corrosion. This forms the case of the eighth Harry Winston Project Z: a dual time equipped with the new calibre HW3502, made exclusively for the brand, which has a f lat silicon spring and can be adjusted from the crown. The second timezone functions in retrograde fashion. Importantly, it has a white gold rotor and is skeletonised, allowing for easy observation of the movement decorated in Côtes de Genève style. It is a limited edition of 300 pieces, with a rubber strap.
PANERAI RADIOMIR 1940 CHRONOGRAPH PLATINO
A beautiful piece whose vintage case also available in 45mm rose gold and white gold. The dial is made of ivory and dotted luminescent hour markers.

To maintain the aesthetic vintage mentioned above, the dial is protected by 2.8mm plexiglass crystal. Correa Alligator leather strap.
JAQUET DROZ GRANDE SECONDE QUANTIÈME IVORY ENAMEL
Handmade by the vanguard and closely inspired by the original Pierre pocket watch that Jaquet-Droz made in 1784. Among its innovations is the inclusion of the automatic silicon spring, which helps to support shocks and variations in temperature and pressure. This calibre Jaquet Droz 2660Q2P comes in a case of 39 or 43mm in red gold or white. Its power reserve of 68 hours is due to a double barrel, and can be submerged up to 30m.

RICHARD MILLE RM 3601 SÉBASTIEN LOEB
Designed to accompany Sébastien Loeb, nine-time winner of the Championship World Rally (WRC), this watch includes a G-force sensor; which was first presented at the 2013’s RM No 36. But now the pusher of this function is located in the centre of the crystal sapphire, which covers the reading area. It is lighter than the previous model, and at 12 o’clock is a scale indicating the G force which is at safe level (green) or if you are reaching a point critical (red). This helps the driver to view the lateral slowdown, longitudinal and cornering forces acceleration and braking on the straights. Carbon nanotubes case and grade 5 titanium hand-wound movement with one-minute tourbillon.
VAN CLEEF & ARPELS PIERRE ARPELS HEURE D’ICI & HEURE D’AILLEURS
The automatic movement of this watch allows you to deploy two jumping hours, sharing the retrograde minutes. It’s a poetic way of presenting a dual time joined by the phrase French “Heure
d’ici & heure d’ailleurs” (“time to time here and there”). The man that inspired this piece, Pierre Arpels, was a tireless traveller. The mechanism was developed in collaboration with Atelier Genevois d’Horlogerie and is equipped with a micro rotor to ensure the white gold case is not too thick. Alligator leather strap.
LINDE WERDELIN OKTOPUS MOONLITE
The brand has produced only 59 pieces of this watch because of the complexity involved in making its case in ALW (Alloy Linde Werdelin)—an alloy of colourless aluminum, zirconium and magnesium which is half the weight of titanium and twice as resistant as steel. The total weight of the timepiece, complete with movement, is 62.5g. In the skeletonised area, can be seen the moon phase indicator with moon filled in blue and red indices. The numerals 3, 9 and 12 have been coated in white luminescent material. Part of the caseback bears the figure of an octopus. Automatic movement from ETA. White rubber strap. Waterproof to 300m.
ROMAIN JEROME SPACECRAFT BLACK
Intergalactic is a good word for this watch that was inspired by stealth aircraft, like the famous F-117 Nighthawk that sailed the skies unobserved for over 20 years. Its unusual PVD coated titanium case and trapezoidal shows time in one flank of the case with orange numbers and minute on a rotating dial at the top.

MAÎTRES DU TEMPS CHAPTER ONE TONNEAU TRANSPARENCE TITANIUM
The Chapter One concept emerged some years ago through a partnership between master watchmakers Christophe Claret and Peter Speake-Marin. Now, it has been reinterpreted with a sapphire crystal sphere through which you can see the calibre SHC02.1 hand-wound movement, which displays six complications: one-minute tourbillon, monopusher chronograph, retrograde indicator date, retrograde GMT, moon phases and day, these last two indicated by two rollers placed on the top and bottom of case, respectively. The case is in titanium. sixty-hour power reserve. In an alligator leather strap. Limited edition of 11 pieces.

The movement is the calibre hand-wound DUW 4401, with 42 hours of power reserve, which has a new escapement (swing system) developed by watchmakers of the brand, something only some watchmaking firms are able to achieve.—The steel case measures 37mm in diameter and is only 7.65mm thick. Displays hours, minutes, small seconds and power reserve indicator.
DE BETHUNE DB28 DIGITALE
Few watches are as beautiful as the independent brand De Bethune, founded in 2002 by David Zanetta and Denis Flageollet. In this case, a good part of the face is adorned with barleycorn guilloché. In the spherical centre is the indicator of moon phases. At 12, there is a window for the jumping digital hours, and at the top, minutes can similarly be read off a rotating disc.
