1. Jaeger-LeCoultre

Master Memovox Or Rose FB

This handcrafted 18-carat rose gold timepiece has 268 parts and features the mechanical automatic Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 956, with 28,800 vibrations per hour. It offers a 45-hour power reserve.

2. Cartier

Ballon Bleu

With the winding mechanism creatively decorated with a sapphire cabochon and protected by a precious metal arch, the legendary Ballon Bleu de Cartier is at once classical and modern.

3. David Yurman

The Classic 1957 Limited Edition

Inspired by American sports cars, the bold and sleek 43.5mm stainless steel case (with integrated cable design) houses a Swiss automatic Dubois Depraz movement, while the calf strap is supposed to resemble a driving glove.

4. Piaget

Altiplano Double Jeu

The Altiplano Double Jeu actually consists of two watches, superimposed so as to form just one. With two calibres driving different time displays on each dial, it is particularly useful for travellers.

5. Montblanc


The Timewalker illustrates how refined contrasts and the skilful use of colour can result in a stylistic statement, while the chronograph function gives an unmistakably technical aspect.

6. Bulgari

Sotirio in steel and pink gold

With a 43mm case framing a black sapphire dial, the new Sotirio is driven by Calibre 168, a mechanical self-winding movement entirely designed and produced in-house by Bulgari.
