Four rea­sons why black is back.

BLAST FROM THE PAST

Fea­tur­ing an ana­log date and a sec­onds sub-dial, the Re­f6006G by Patek Philippe was cre­ated as a trib­ute to the 40th an­niver­sary of the Cal­i­bre 240, a highly pre­cise self-wing­ing move­ment with a rate tol­er­ance be­tween -3 and +2 sec­onds per day that was used to power the ul­tra-thin and highly cov­eted Cala­travaRef5000. In this lat­est it­er­a­tion, the Re­f6006G presents el­e­gant hol­lowed whitelac­quered ba­ton hands for the hours and min­utes, which grace­fully sweep across plain Ara­bic nu­mer­als, while an ad­di­tional hand tipped with a red­lac­quered ar­row in­di­cates the cur­rent date. The watch is pre­sented with an en­larged case, paired with a dial in sil­ver or ebony, fea­tur­ing in­ter­est­ing tex­tures and con­trasts that serve to en­hance the leg­i­bil­ity of the time­piece.

STEP UP

When it comes to ef­fort­less style, no one does it bet­ter than Sal­va­tore

Fer­rag­amo. The lat­est ad­di­tion to the Ital­ian lux­ury brand’s Spring/Sum­mer col­lec­tion presents a so­phis­ti­cated

PlainToeDerby shoe with mod­ern de­tails that will make strut­ting in the ur­ban jun­gle a de­light­ful en­deav­our. Con­structed with a su­pe­rior fit and un­par­al­leled arch sup­port, ad­di­tional fea­tures of th­ese clas­sic kicks in­clude three eye­lets and a sturdy leather sole.

GO­ING PLACES

De­signed with both func­tion and at­ti­tude in mind, the Al­phaBravo col­lec­tion from TUMI of­fers a trio of lug­gage op­tions in time­less black with con­trast­ing gun­metal de­tails. Ma­jor de­sign up­dates of this sleek col­lec­tion in­clude an in­te­grated logo plaque, sump­tu­ous leather de­tail­ing on the front ex­te­rior, up­dated zip­pers and pulls, and an ap­peal­ing web­bing de­sign el­e­ment that re­mains a key func­tion­al­ity in this col­lec­tion. This lim­ited edi­tion se­ries comes in var­i­ous con­struc­tions, in­clud­ing durable bal­lis­tic ny­lon, an­thracite polyester and clas­sic leather.

AS­TRAL AS­PI­RA­TIONS

For se­ri­ous col­lec­tors with a fond­ness for the avant garde, MB&F presents a new horo­log­i­cal ma­chine de­signed with the world’s first-ever pro­jected moon­phase dis­play. Cre­ated in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Stepan Sarpaneva, the MoonMa­chine2 is de­rived from the same mech­a­nism and case found in the

HM8 by MB&F. Housed in­side this cur­va­ceous yet an­gu­lar case is a non-mag­ni­fy­ing prism that al­lows both the time and moon phase to be dis­played ver­ti­cally, while fans of Sarpaneva’s work will im­me­di­ately recog­nise the watch­maker’s dis­tinc­tive moon face dis­played on the moon disc and brushed ti­ta­nium ro­tor. The MoonMa­chine2 is avail­able in three lim­ited edi­tion vari­ants: a ti­ta­nium case with white gold moon faces; a black ti­ta­nium case with white gold moon faces; and a red gold and ti­ta­nium case with red gold moon faces.
