This year’s unveiling of the precious, mysterious and sparkling 18ct yellow gold version of the Cosmograph Daytona caught the attention of many. The emblematic tachymetric scale is replaced with 36 trapeze-cut diamonds. On the paved black lacquer dial, champagne-colour chronograph counters are intertwined with black lacquer and diamonds. Elegant and powerful, this is the perfect statement piece for the metropolitan man.

Oyster Perpetual GMT-Master II

One instrument, several time zones. This is what makes the GMT-Master II the watch of choice for travellers. The GMT-Master II can display the time in two time zones simultaneously: either the local time and the reference time, or the local time and that of an alternative time zone. With its combination of peerless functionality and rugged good looks, it certainly checks off all the boxes as an ideal travel companion.

Designed with artist Richard Orlinski, this high-jewellery timepiece features a multi-faceted case in white gold or King Gold, illuminated with 319 baguette diamonds set into the middle, bezel and crown, totalling approximately 21.7ct.

Omega

seamaster Diver 300m

Sporty and elegant at the same time, the Seamaster Diver 300m can be worn anywhere, any time. The classic underwater timepiece is not only a James Bond favourite, but also an icon of gentlemanly style. Presented on a blue rubber strap, this modern update features a 42mm case in stainless steel and 18k Sedna gold. Blue ceramic is used for the bezel and the dial, with laser-engraved waves that flow between the 18k gold indexes and hands. For some extra magic, look no further than the Master Chronometer certification, guaranteeing the highest standard of precision, performance and magnetic resistance.

seamaster aqua terra

Designed with the seafaring lifestyle in mind for the stylish urbanite, the 41mm design is all about simple refinement, with a brown leather strap and a combination of stainless steel and 18k Sedna gold. Look a little deeper, however, and you’ll also find magical details that pay tribute to Omega’s ocean heritage. The triangular indexes, for example, are taken from diving watches of the past, while the silvery dial features horizontal stripes that replicate the wooden decks of luxury yachts. Inside, adventure-ready power is delivered by the Omega Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8900.

speedmaster 38mm

In winter, the green pine forests of Switzerland are usually seen shimmering with snow. For this Speedmaster 38mm model in stainless steel and 18k yellow gold, Omega has complemented the green tones with a different kind of sparkle. Here, the dual bezel design is cleverly split between a circle of radiant diamonds and the iconic tachymeter scale on a green aluminium ring. The magic continues with green chronograph hands and markings on an elegant opaline silvery dial with oval subdials and a date window.

CORUM

Golden Bridge Round 43 Art Deco

Corum’s Golden Bridge collection is celebrated for its unique aesthetics that combine art, architecture, technique, style and a deep respect for fine watchmaking traditions. The new Golden Bridge Round 43 Art Deco continues this renewed vision of the watchmaking art. As always at Corum, the piece is universally admired for its aesthetic dimension and pictorial power. At the same time, it likewise charms experienced collectors with the boldness of its mechanics; mechanics which are embodied by the legendary baguette movement. It dominates in all its length, at the centre of the piece, vertically. This unique watchmaking composition has become one of the identifying hallmarks of Corum, a concentration of its character, both transgressive and respectful of the canons of Fine Watchmaking. Its gold bridges and mainplate are engraved with the brand name and finish at 6 o’clock by the crown, used for time setting and the winding of the 40-hour power reserve.

Four symmetrical series of cables extend across both sides of the movement. They continue the architectural inspiration of the aptly named “Bridge” collection. Through exploring the aesthetic of the bridge, Corum illustrates the watchmaking metaphor. The piece links to the “bridge” that keeps its gear train in motion for those who travel across cities and rivers to connect with others. An age-old symbol of openness, of encounter, the bridge has always been one of the most complex works of art ever created, a technical prowess capable of defying centuries and the elements.

The Golden Bridge Round 43 Art Deco endorses this heritage and its symbolism. No fewer than 16 cables in brass, a watchmaking material par excellence, are drawn from the 43mm titanium case and settle higher up, underneath the flange. The construction, suspended in the void, conjures up the aesthetic of the largest bridges ever built including the Millau Viaduct (France), the famous Øresund Bridge that connects Denmark to Sweden, Malaysia’s 13.5km-long Penang Bridge and the Akashi Kaikyo Bridge in Japan. Available in two series strictly limited to 188 pieces, the Golden Bridge Round 43 Art Deco is available in a rhodium or gold finish (movement, cables, crown) on a black vulcanised rubber bracelet.

Aquaracer Green Dial

Inspired by the mesmerising blue and green shades of the ocean, TAG Heuer has created two green-dialled Aquaracer models that offer sporty functionality on any terrain. The stylish timepieces for men and women are distinguished by their everyday versatility and dive-ready technology. Whether for cruising on the waves or exploring the world below the surface, these modern Aquaracer models invite the wearers to live the good life.

The 43mm Aquaracer has a stunning green dial that creates an eye-catching light display with its sunray effect. The horizontal lines that run across the dial resemble the wooden docks where sailboats are moored. There is a date window at 3 o’clock on the dial, and the numerals on the bezel are filled in with black lacquer, as is the triangle marker at 12 o’clock. This model’s smaller 32mm counterpart features the same stately sunray green dial, but, instead of horizontal lines, it is decorated with elegant diamond hour markers. Both watches are crafted from stainless steel and presented on stainless-steel bracelets. At the heart of the 43mm model is the Calibre 5 Automatic movement, while the 32mm model is powered by a quartz movement.

These two Aquaracer timepieces are as robust as they are stylish. Prepared for experiences and sporty activities on any terrain, they are particularly well-suited for underwater exploration. They are both equipped with the six standard diving features of all models in the Aquaracer collection: water resistance to 300m, a unidirectional rotating bezel, a screw-down crown, luminescent hands and markers, a double security clasp and sapphire crystal.
With their comfortable bracelets and timeless style, these bold yet elegant designs are prepared to accompany watch aficionados wherever their experiences take them.

Baume & Mercier

CLIFTON BAUMATIC

A must-have for the dapper gentleman, the Clifton Baumatic in 18k pink gold takes elegance one step further with a perfectly proportioned 39mm round case. The “warm” white porcelain-finish dial is adorned with golden hour markers and hands. Faceted, riveted trapezium-shaped markers set the pace for the elegant, slender alpha hands, while an oversized date aperture opens at 3 o’clock.

The minute track and the central focal point symbolise COSC certification and bring out the beauty of this harmonious display. The self-winding caliber features carefully crafted traditional finishes – circular graining, sandblasting, snailing or even Côtes de Genève – on the plate, bridges and on the open-worked gold-toned tungsten oscillating weight. The black alligator strap with pin buckle adds a final touch of comfort. The case-back can be engraved with a personalized message to bring a special, memorable touch to your holiday gift. An expression of affection for a truly unique object.
