A com­fort­able, sporty, su­per-re­li­able time­piece, the Cal­i­bre de Cartier Car­bon Diver’s watch has a black dial and Ro­man nu­mer­als, as well as a smaller dial show­ing sec­onds. The case is stain­less steel.

The Rolex Oys­ter Per­pet­ual Date never goes out of fash­ion. Dis­tin­guished by its ex­cep­tion­ally el­e­gant de­sign, it’s in­stantly recog­nis­able be­cause of its char­ac­ter­is­tic Oys­ter ar­chi­tec­ture, gold bezel and Cy­clop lens over the date. This model com­bines Oys­ter­steel and 18ct yel­low gold to cre­ate an op­u­lent feel on the wrist, with its slate dial and rich green Ro­man nu­mer­als com­bin­ing a modern aes­thetic with vin­tage ap­peal.

The per­fect watch for any­one who loves vin­tage or clas­sic cars, given the brand’s long as­so­ci­a­tion with mo­tor­sport. The 42mm JaegerLeCoul­tre Po­laris Chrono­graph is equipped with a tachymeter bezel. The tachymeter scale al­lows you to de­ter­mine your speed over a fixed dis­tance – per­fect for check­ing your speed on the high­way. The push­ers of the watch have been re­designed for bet­ter grip, while the dial has been opened for eas­ier read­abil­ity.

For the man who prefers un­der­stated style, the new Pan­erai Lu­mi­nor Cal­i­for­nia 8 Days DLC 44mm PAM00779 has an un­mis­tak­ably mas­cu­line de­sign, with fea­tures such as a DLC-coated titanium case, a Cal­i­for­nia dial with a time-only dis­play, blue hands, a brown leather strap and and eight­day power re­serve move­ment. Ideal for ev­ery­day wear.

The edgy Tu­dor Black Bay has an aged leather strap with a rose-en­graved wind­ing crown, a 41mm dial and a self­wind­ing me­chan­i­cal move­ment with bi-di­rec­tional ro­tor – the ideal time­piece for dress-suit for­mal oc­ca­sions and a per­fect in­vest­ment, as it em­bod­ies the ex­per­tise and crafts­man­ship of 60 years of the Tu­dor brand. The new sporty TAG Heuer Link Chrono­graph ver­sion watch is a per­fect gift for your­self. It has a steel crown and is avail­able with a blue or black dial. It also has a chrono­graph push-piece at 2 and 4 o’clock, is wa­ter-re­sis­tant to 100m and fea­tures an hour, minute and sec­ond counter with a metal­lic strip. Bal­anc­ing class and el­e­gance, the Ro­tonde de Cartier Mys­te­ri­ous Day/ Night time­piece is worth in­vest­ing in, with an 18ct white gold-set case and a blue sapphire cabo­chon crown. The face is black and gold with Ro­man nu­mer­als, off­set by a blue steel sword-shaped minute hand, while the al­li­ga­tor strap and dou­ble ad­justable folding buckle are both prac­ti­cal and trendy. For the man who knows who he is and what he wants. Wa­ter-re­sis­tant to 30m. The Longines Record col­lec­tion has been launched in hon­our of the brand’s 185th an­niver­sary and are the first time­pieces to be cer­ti­fied as “chronome­ters” by the Swiss Of­fi­cial Chronome­ter Test­ing In­sti­tute. The Record Au­to­matic COSC 40mm, with its white dial and strik­ing el­e­gance, is an ideal in­vest­ment and a great com­bi­na­tion of crafts­man­ship and so­phis­ti­ca­tion.
