Following a total revamp and expansion of its premises, Chopard reopens its Bond Street flagship boutique and celebrates with eight very special models of its L.U.C XPS 1860 Officer model. The ultra-thin white gold L.U.C XPS 1860 Officer Royal Arms of England features a hinged officer-style caseback that has been appropriately decorated to mark the […]
Last year, at the SIHH 2018, Audemars Piguet presented a case study, a concept watch made to show the brand’s savoir-faire in terms of watchmaking: the Royal Oak #RD2, also known as the world’s thinnest self-winding perpetual calendar. Impressively complex inside and very familiar outside (clearly it had all the traits of a Royal Oak […]
Back in 2017, Audemars Piguet showed an innovative spirit by presenting its first full ceramic watch (bracelet included), the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar in black. Needless to say, this watch is one of the hottest editions in the collection, with its unique stealth look and its complex movement. Based on this concept, Audemars […]
The Tonda is the largest of all Parmigiani’s watch collections and caters to both men and women. Meaning ‘round’ in Italian, the Tonda 1950 family of automatic watches represent Parmigiani’s take on the ultra-thin, elegant dress watch genre. The date 1950 is a reference to master watchmaker Michel Parmigiani’s year of birth. Three new models in sumptuous 39mm rose gold cases and dashingly handsome dials in contemporary colours – slate, blue and grained white – join the Tonda 1950 collection.
The classic Villeret has been one of the best-selling and most emblematic lines of Blancpain for years. One of the latest additions to the collection, the new Villeret Extra-Plate 6605 is very much in tune with its refined and understated style. Balancing timelessness and sense of place, this ultra-slim dress watch concentrates on the bare […]
Back in 2014, Breguet introduced what certainly is one of its best watches, a watch that both sums up the classic design of the brand and its innovative spirit: the Classique Tourbillon Extra-Thin Automatic 5377. Thin, elegant, fitted with a tourbillon (of course, it’s Breguet), complex and equipped with a peripheral rotor… It was followed […]
For over five years now, blue has been the predominant colour for watchmakers when it comes to the dress watch. Blue is elegant, dressy and has this small “je ne sais quoi” about it that a black or silver dial doesn’t deliver… But not all blue watches are born equal. Some have a special pedigree, and Vacheron Constantin‘s models play in a different league (see the new Blue FIFTYSIX for instance). Today, an emblematic model from the Patrimony collection dons a midnight blue shade especially created for the line.
Chopard capitalises on its role as the official partner of the Cannes Film Festival (14-25 May) and launches an azure version of its ultra-thin L.U.C XPS gent’s model. Dressed for the red-carpet event, the L.U.C XPS Azur dons a handsome blue suit and comes in an 18k ethical gold case. Limited to just 10 pieces, […]
Slim, sophisticated and with just the right hint of complexity, the new Chopard L.U.C Flying T Twin is a collector’s dream. Recently unveiled at Baselworld 2019, it’s the first calibre equipped with a flying tourbillon from the Manufacture. Cased up in 100% ethically sourced “Fairmined” gold, it cuts a striking figure on the wrist. We managed to get our hands on one and were impressed by its perfect proportions and high-level finishing, the latter of which earned this model the Geneva Seal. Read on for a closer look at this handsome timepiece.
Debuted in 2014, the Bvlgari Octo Finissimo collection has emerged as one of the most striking watch designs of the past years. It allowed Bvlgari to break several thinness records: thinnest tourbillon movement, thinnest automatic watch, thinnest minute repeater and thinnest chronograph in 2019. Besides the addition of new complications, Bvlgari is also expanding the […]
