SELECT WATCHES ACROSS MULTIPLE FUNCTIONS AND MARKET AVAILABILITY
This 46mm titanium case houses the Hysek HW06 caliber. The movement features an automatic double tourbillon: the two tourbillons are connected by a central differential, which regulates the speed of each tourbillon and increases the accuracy. The dial displays the date and can be adjusted by a push button. The watch is a limited edition of eight numbered pieces.
Mühle Glashütte’s traditional aesthetic, here inspired by vintage German pocket watches, is highlighted with the five-layer lacquer dial, black Roman numerals and the blued Breguet hands. The watch is powered by the ETA-based MU 9415 hand-wound movement with woodpecker neck regulation and Glashütte three-quarter plate, visible through the transparent caseback. The watch comes on a crocodile strap with steel butterfly clasp or with a steel bracelet.
This U.S.-based watch company debuts two different smartwatch collections, one with the Movado name and one under the Bold moniker. The pictured Swiss-made Movado models feature a watch for men (Museum Sport) and one for women (Bellina, not pictured here). Both offer multiple alarms, get-active alerts, two-year battery life and automatic world clock with time/date setting through sync with paired device. There are six timepieces in the collection with an opening price point of $995. Movado Bold Motion notifies users of incoming phone calls and texts, manages time and priorities and monitors daily steps and tracks progress through app-enabled functionality. Offered in two different unisex styles, it maintains up to a full-week of smart module battery life.
The forged carbon 44mm watch features a black ceramic bezel, crown and pushers and adds titanium push piece guards. The black dial displays a signature raised pattern, Tapisserie. Inside is the selfwinding Caliber 2897 with an impressive peripheral oscillating weight in brushed platinum.
This new model replaces the existing one that François-Paul Journe used to launch his brand. The 40mm platinum or red gold watch with tourbillon escapement is powered by the 1403 Caliber, using a constant force system and now with dead-beat seconds. The case and strap are available in a variety of options.
This in-house automatic caliber is inspired by an automatic Alpina model from the 1950s. This 41.5mm stainless steel edition uses this new movement while retaining the essential Swiss aesthetic: a cream dial, applied pearl-black numerals and clean lines. Three central hands indicate the hours, minutes and seconds. It is available with a silvered dial and silver numerals.
Pierre DeRoche has composed an anthem to pure, uncluttered lines with its new GrandCliff Pure Nacre. Destined to establish itself as an ageless feminine classic, the timepiece embodies a vision of watchmaking pared down to essentials, retaining only complications that are useful in daily life. The understated date and power-reserve indicator are beautifully highlighted against the backdrop of a natural blue-tinted natural mother-of-pearl dial – framed by a round and slender case graced by clean, sleek lines. At its heart beats an automatic movement, offering a fine example of what can happen when mechanical horology meets exquisite femininity to mark off a time that will transcend the passing years.
H. Moser & Cie. is adding to the Venturer family with a big date model, featuring the Flash Calendar which has brought the company’s date movements such recognition. Its design is perfectly in tune with the characteristics which have ensured the success of the Venturer collection: uncluttered lines, a curved profile with a convex sapphire crystal, an extremely refined bezel that opens up the dial completely and the off-centre small seconds at 6 o’clock, in reference to the aesthetic of antique pocket watches. The Neuhausen-based manufacture has dedicated the very best to every element of its Venturer Big Date.
The DSTB is part of the Instrument Collection and, like every other model from Arnold & Son, features an in-house mechanical movement. The true beat seconds is a traditional complication of Arnold & Son, and this watch pays tribute to the watches produced by John Arnold during the second half of his career, when he and his son were the first to develop marine chronometers that could be produced in quantity at reasonable prices. Those technically superior, widely distributed chronometers reflected Arnold & Son’s commitment to exceptional precision and solved the problem of determining longitude at sea.
A tribute to the Continental GT3, this 500-piece limited series celebrates Bentley’s contribution to motorsports. The titanium case is light and sturdy, two qualities a driver needs during a race. Inspired by the racing car’s own aesthetic, the dial is made from carbon fiber. The display system features a 60-minute counter via a central hand and a combined hour/minute counter at 9 o’clock. At the heart of the watch is a selfwinding movement, chronometer-certified by COSC.
This moon phase watch is forged in a stainless steel 40mm round case and is powered by a Swiss high-precision quartz movement. It has a white dial with Roman numerals and baton indexes—a classic design. The date window is at 6 o’clock and the moon phases may be read through the central display via a crescent-shaped opening. A scratchresistant sapphire crystal protects it from the onslaught of time. With its black alligator strap and triple folding clasp with security pushpieces, it is a great watch for everyday wear and may be engraved with a personal message for the perfect gift.
The new 42mm Ref. 5524 Patek Philippe Calatrava Pilot Travel Time recalls classic aviators’ timepieces. But its blue dial, white gold case and time-zone function are all Patek.
“We have wonderful pieces in the Patek Philippe museum that have historical relevance to us, and this particular piece was inspired by two pieces that are in the museum, from 1836. The blue dial mimics the technical dials of the cockpit while the pushers have a patent pending on the locking system.”
