Giuliano Mazzuoli Manometro Italia Rinuova

Giuliano Mazzuoli presents its new timepiece, the Manometro Italia Rinuova.

The inspiration for the Giuliano Mazzuoli Manometro Italia Rinuova watch comes from the Renaissance with the motto that was created for Lorenzo the Magnificent after the Pazzi Conspiracy of 1478: “Le temps revient” (‘Time is renewed’).

Lorenzo, just like the evergreen laurel that grows even more luxuriantly after being pruned, would have continued the Medici dynasty with even more vigor, restoring peace and prosperity. Hence, the inspiration to reinterpret Manometro Italia, the watch dedicated to Italy by linking it to history and the concept of time that is continually renewed.

Giuliano Mazzuoli Manometro Italia Rinuova watch

The Italian flag that embellishes the case is first engraved and then enameled one color at a time by Giuliano’s expert hands. The carrure is evenly rectified and polished creating a very reliable and resistant decoration. Crafted with care and dedication, this detail becomes a declaration of love by Giuliano for his country.

Giuliano Mazzuoli Manometro Italia Rinuova watch with blue dial

The dial of the watch is available in white or blue with Arabic numerals. The hour and minute hands have a luminescent thread and the red seconds hand has an arrow end.

Giuliano Mazzuoli Manometro Italia Rinuova watch

Measuring 45mm in diameters, the robust cylindrical stainless steel case houses a mechanical movement with automatic winding calibre ETA 2824. On the side of the case the precious detail that distinguishes this Manometro can be found: the flag of Italy is engraved and enamelled in a declaration of love for Italy.

The elegant strap, handcrafted in Tuscan leather, is available in two colors that recall Italian summers: Portofino sky blue and Capri blue.

In the handcrafted black leather box, there is an extra strap in natural leather that can be used in every season. Manometro Italia Rinuova is a special series limited to only 25 pieces.

The Giuliano Mazzuoli Manometro Italia Rinuova Blue (the version with a blue dial) comes with a Capri blue color strap where as the white dial variant (Manometro Italia Rinuova White) features a Portofino sky blue strap.

The retail price of each Manometro Italia Rinuova timepiece is 3,100 Euros.

Speake-Marin TUTTI FRUTTI Limited Edition

Speake-Marin revisits its iconic Piccadilly case in red gold with an inspiring dial, made of carbon and decorated with contrasting colours touches.

The Tutti Frutti combines the elegance of black and tonic colours inspired by paint splashes which give this timepiece its unique look.

Speake-Marin TUTTI FRUTTI Limited Edition

The Tutti Frutti is part of the Art-Series Collection and is equipped with the SMA03 caliber. A self-winding movement with an integrated micro-rotor is nestled in 5N red gold Piccadilly case. Tutti Frutti timepiece takes its inspiration from art and nature.

The dial is inspired by the natural aspect of stones, which play with light. As a consequence, a carbon dial has been therefore chosen to give the watch a modern look playing on the effects of the mineral world.

Speake-Marin TUTTI FRUTTI Limited Edition

The multi-coloured indexes are inspired by the colour spectrum of a rainbow. Each index has two complimentary colours, for instance orange and blue, or red and green.

The black cow hid strap has been developed with a double stitching to pick up the colour of the indexes. Besides, the black calf leather is lined with blue, as a tribute to the Speake-Marin signature colour.

Speake-Marin TUTTI FRUTTI Limited Edition

The Tutti Frutti houses a SMA03 movement: Hours Minutes with small seconds at 1:30 and integrated micro-rotor.

This movement is nestled in a new version of the Piccadilly, an evolution of the iconic case of Speake-Marin. The new case is more technical than the original allowing the straps to be integrated closer in the case, moving the crown further into the case so as to soften its aesthetics whilst maintaining its original DNA.

Speake-Marin TUTTI FRUTTI Limited Edition

The bezel and the case back slightly overlap the central case section altering the overall “look” of the watch whilst maintaining the iconoclastic feel of Speake-Marin.

Speake-Marin TUTTI FRUTTI Limited Edition

In addition, the glass traditionally set into the bezel has now been altered to a box form, reducing the overall thickness of the case and accentuating the technical aspect of the watch.

Speake-Marin TUTTI FRUTTI Limited Edition

This limited edition will be available in red gold only.

Bell & Ross BR V2-92 Orange Limited Edition

The new Bell & Ross BR V2-92 Orange sports watch features the graphic signature of the dial of the very recent BR V2-92 Full Lum. It incorporates the same indexes, numerals and hands that light up in the dark.

It spotlights an orange dial just like the Bell & Ross BR 03-92 Diver Orange, the Diver who initiated the Orange family in 2020. The BR V292 Orange is the second element of this collection. These two watches have the colour orange in common.

Bell & Ross BR V2-92 Orange Limited Edition

Their emblem is the surfboard for one and the skateboard for the other. Skateboard and surfboards are two equivalent sliding accessories, one land-intended for the macadam, the other aquatic, for the ocean.

The BR V292 Orange watch is characterised by the Pop colour of its dial, a very pure and bright orange.

On the BR V2-92 Orange, the combination of this bright colour and the black outlines of the hands, numerals and indexes, offer optimal reading. Readability has always been one of the fundamental qualities of Bell & Ross instrument watches.

Bell & Ross BR V2-92 Orange Limited Edition

The BR V2-92 Orange pays tribute to the world of skateboarding. Its neo-retro design and its Pop colour associate it with this stylish sport, born in California in the 70s. The roundness of its case evokes in particular the roundness of the wheels of a skateboard.

Its rubber strap with a “braided” tropical print is reminiscent of the grip that covers a skateboard deck. The BR V2-92 Orange is also available with an integrated full steel bracelet.

Bell & Ross BR V2-92 Orange Limited Edition

The BR V2-92 Orange is a sports watch whose objective is readability and reliability. This classic 41 mm steel watch has an assertive neo-retro character. It features the Bell & Ross elegant Vintage case with timeless rounded lines.

Ready for action, this novelty is well suited to outdoor activities. Robust, designed for sport, it is water-resistant to a depth of 100 m.

Bell & Ross BR V2-92 Orange Limited Edition

The BR V2-92 Orange is powered by the self-winding BR-CAL.302 calibre. Reliable and precise, this mechanism displays the hours, minutes and seconds by central hands and the date in an aperture. Its notched bidirectional rotating bezel is used to set benchmarks in time.

Bell & Ross BR V2-92 FULL LUM Limited Edition

Bell & Ross presents BR V2-92 FULL LUM, a brand new sports watch that aims for superior brightness and maximum readability day and night. Water-resistant to a depth of 100 m, it has a 41 mm steel case.

Bell & Ross’ FULL LUM concept appeared in 2019. This denomination means totally (FULL) luminous (LUM). These watches are distinguished first and foremost by their photoluminescent dial. The BR V2-92 FULL LUM is the fourth element of this unique watchmaking family.

It was preceded by:

– The BR 03-92 FULL LUM in 2019, with a sand-coloured dial.
– The BR 03-92 Diver FULL LUM in 2020 in water green, the current signature of this collection.
– The BR V2-94 FULL LUM in 2021, the first sports chronograph in the series.

The new BR V2-92 FULL LUM from 2022 is the latest addition to this successful series.

Bell & Ross BR V2-92 FULL LUM Limited Edition

This 3-hand watch features the Bell & Ross Vintage case with timeless rounded lines. It is equipped with the BR-CAL.302 calibre with resistant and precise automatic winding. It displays the hour, minutes and seconds by central hands and the date in an aperture.

Also unique and original, it adopts the very contemporary FULL LUM finish. It stands out in particular for its completely luminescent dial in the dark.

Bell & Ross BR V2-92 FULL LUM Limited Edition

“Lum” also evokes Super-LumiNova®, a phosphorescent substance that lights up in the dark. The dial, hands, numerals and indexes of the BR V2-92 FULL LUM benefit from this ultra-luminescent coating in two distinctive colours.

During the day, the dial covered with Super-LumiNova® C5 offers two unique shades. The base of the dial is adorned with a subtle, slightly mysterious water green, unusual in watchmaking. The hands, numerals and indexes are covered in pale yellow Super-LumiNova® C3. During the day, these unusual colours are discreet.

Bell & Ross BR V2-92 FULL LUM Limited Edition

At night, the Super-LumiNova® glows. The background of the dial radiates an intense blue. The hands, numerals and indexes light up in a dazzling light green. These fluorescent tones contrast with the black contours of the indexes on the dial. The entire watch is adorned with light.

Tag Heuer Formula 1 Senna Automatic Special Edition

Just a few months after releasing a quartz version of the new TAG Heuer Formula 1 Senna Special Edition, the Swiss luxury watch manufacture is launching a new version equipped with a powerful automatic movement and an even stronger design.

To pay tribute to Ayrton’s legacy, TAG Heuer continues its quest to create the perfect Formula 1 watch, the one the legendary driver would have loved to wear on his wrist. With its bold design and its nods to Ayrton’s original watch, the TAG Heuer Formula 1 Senna Special Edition perfectly illustrates TAG Heuer’s continued admiration of the illustrious driver and celebrates his lasting influence on the sport.

Tag Heuer Formula 1 Senna Automatic Special Edition

For this new edition, the designers of TAG Heuer – in collaboration with the Senna Brand – wanted to work specifically with the colour red, a reference to Ayrton Senna’s original watch, which also has touches of red tint in the dial. The whole look of the TAG Heuer Senna Special Edition is a very elegant mix of red, anthracite and black, in line with the design codes the brand SENNA’s iconic S.

The red lacquer is present in the 2 o’clock pusher, in the crown and at 12 o’clock in the double S, which is the Brazilian driver’s iconic logo brand. Likewise, the subdials are adorned with red touches, and the sporty and elegant design of the model is further accentuated thanks to the azure finishing and the 6 o’clock subdial customised with the Senna logo in red.

Tag Heuer Formula 1 Senna Automatic Special Edition

The watch has a beautiful sunray-brushed anthracite dial with black “azurage” minute, hour and permanent second chronograph counters, bringing to the dial a bright and luminous effect highlighted with vibrant red touches.

The white Super- LumiNova® on the rhodium-plated applied indexes and hands ensures at-a-glance legibility at all speeds and in all lighting conditions. The timepiece also features an ultra-resistant black ceramic bezel, with the number 400 engraved as a reference to the symbolic 400 km/h speed that has never been reached in Formula 1.

Tag Heuer Formula 1 Senna Automatic Special Edition

This contemporary reissued edition is also inspired by the first TAG Heuer chronograph watch worn by Ayrton Senna and its famous S/EL bracelet. Highly shock-resistant, the bracelet has a folding clasp with a driver extension to fit over the sleeve of a racing suit.

Tag Heuer Formula 1 Senna Automatic Special Edition

The TAG Heuer Formula 1 Senna Special Edition timepiece is equipped with the automatic Calibre 16, which is protected by a stainless-steel screw-down caseback engraved with the Brazilian driver’s iconic helmet on the back and alongside a special engraving of “SENNA SPECIAL EDITION”.

Launched in 2019, the Cayman collection pays homage to the sea with inspiration from DELMA’s divers’ watches of the 1970s.

Like the original DELMA skin divers, the Cayman possesses a smaller case in comparison to professional divers’ watches, with a focus on comfort and style.

Frederique Constant Highlife Ladies Automatic

Frederique Constant presents the Highlife Ladies Automatic watch in two new sparkling 34 mm versions adorned with yellow gold plating – the first one being fully gold-plated, while the second, two-tone, alternates it with steel. The latter are fitted with the collection’s iconic integrated and interchangeable bracelet and come with an additional white rubber strap.

Frederique Constant Highlife Ladies Automatic

By marrying two timeless elements, yellow gold and diamonds, Frederique Constant has created a new Highlife Ladies Automatic timepiece. Its 34 mm case is entirely plated with yellow gold, as are its bracelet, indexes and hands. The dial features eight genuine diamond hour-markers, complemented by a date window at 3 o’clock, the edge of which is also yellow gold-plated.

Frederique Constant Highlife Ladies Automatic

To better highlight the rich palette of reflections offered by yellow gold, Frederique Constant has opted for a wide range of finishes alternating between matt and polished surfaces. This is true of the bezel, which is entirely mirror-polished to emphasise the harmony of its perfect circle. It is doubly echoed in the heart of the dial with on one hand the engraved representation of the globe – the aesthetic signature of the Highlife collection – and on the other hand, the ring setting of each diamond, whose brilliance is reflected with infinite purity.

Frederique Constant Highlife Ladies Automatic

The delicate curved case is satin-brushed, the angle of which hugs every line of the timepiece, right up to the edge of the caseband where an entirely yellow gold-plated bracelet unfolds. It alternates two satin-finished links with a polished central link.

Frederique Constant Highlife Ladies Automatic

This very chic bracelet will have its shock counterpart, with a second strap (delivered with the watch) in white rubber and featuring a yellow gold-plated pin buckle.

At the same time, the Highlife Ladies Automatic has been given a second version. The piece offers both, articulated around a simple principle: all the surfaces previously satin-finished gold-plated are now declined in steel.

Frederique Constant Highlife Ladies Automatic

The others remain in mirror-polished yellow gold plating. The result: a superb alternation of tones, metals, finishes and reflections. The steel material plays against the shimmering, brilliant, mirror-polished gold, highlighting its slightest reflections. Like its yellow gold counterpart, this new model also comes with a rubber strap.

Frederique Constant Highlife Ladies Automatic

And for these two timepieces, Frederique Constant has chosen an automatic calibre with a 38-hour power reserve, richly decorated in a spiral pattern and visible through the open case-back.

Frederique Constant Classics Heart Beat Moonphase Date

The Classics Heart Beat Moonphase Date watch by Frederique Constant is now available in a new avatar which is classic in its spirit, modern in its execution. Its 40 mm stainless steel case houses a deep blue dial, giving pride of place to the emblematic Heart Beat aperture. A Maison signature, it offers a view of the balance wheel at 12 o’clock, which powers the self-winding FC-335 mechanical calibre.

Frederique Constant Classics Heart Beat Moonphase Date

The Classics Heart Beat Moonphase Date is the embodiment of one of Frederique Constant’s most iconic designs. The piece was designed to transcend styles, trends and decades. The aperture at 12 o’clock, known as the Heart Beat, is a testament to the aesthetic mark Frederique Constant has made on the noble watchmaking tradition. Today, this line’s latest creation continues to explore its classic nature with a perfectly balanced 40 mm case.

Frederique Constant Classics Heart Beat Moonphase Date

The composition of its dial reflects the same balance. At 12 o’clock, we find the expression of watchmaking expertise that has set Frederique Constant apart since the very beginning. The “Heart Beat” aperture, designed almost 30 years ago, reveals the beating heart of the watch.

Frederique Constant Classics Heart Beat Moonphase Date watch new model 2022

The self-winding FC-335 mechanical movement, which beats at 28,800 vibrations per hour, is a testament to the Swiss craftsmanship dear to Frederique Constant. It has been designed with a particular focus on simplicity: winding, hours, minutes, date and moon phases are all adjusted with the single crown.

Frederique Constant Classics Heart Beat Moonphase Date

The first position winds the movement, while the fourth adjusts the time. The date can be changed in the second position, and the moon phases in the third, as long as the hands are first positioned at 10:10, as this protects the mechanism from being damaged.

Frederique Constant Classics Heart Beat Moonphase Date

In perfect symmetry with the Heart Beat aperture, a moon phase sits at 6 o’clock. This poetic complication, with an almost monthly cycle (29.5 days), balances the accurate and quick cadence of the seconds hand, bridging the gap between short and long periods of time.

A contemporary set-up unfolds around these two poles, sat against a deep blue. Much like the flame-blued finishes of 19th century timepieces, the moon phase’s theatre of expression evokes the immensity of space. As is customary, Frederique Constant decorated this with guilloche, here a “Clou de Paris”, a centuries-old motif that reflects light in multiple directions.

Frederique Constant Classics Heart Beat Moonphase Date

At the centre of the dial are four hands. The first two, the hours and minutes, end in a so-called “hollowed apple” motif—in Breguet style—, a subtle historical nod to the traditional aesthetic canons of early watchmaking.

The next, the seconds—long and slim—keeps the time of the self-winding FC-335 movement with a 38-hour power reserve. The final hand, standing out with its arrow motif, points towards the date, shown in a circle on the flange.

It is fitted on a blue leather bracelet, with white topstitching and a steel pin buckle.

DOXA Whitepearl New Edition

Following the success of the SUB 200 Whitepearl launched last year, DOXA’s SUB 300 Carbon, SUB 300, SUB 300T, SUB 600T and SUB 1500T models are now available in the Whitepearl versions.

DOXA Whitepearl New Edition

The new line-up begins with the now-iconic SUB 300 Carbon that blends discreet elegance with advanced material engineering. The forged carbon case is not just uncannily lightweight and robust: The random graining, subtly different from watch to watch, makes each one a one-off in a way. And then there’s the dial: pure white during the day and just as radiant in low-light conditions thanks to a full-dial Super-LumiNova® coating.

DOXA SUB 300 Carbon COSC Whitepearl

42.5 mm in diameter and water-resistant to 30 ATM (300 meters, approx.980 feet) and incredibly light at a mere 87 grams, the SUB 300 Carbon Whitepearl offers a radical combination: a case made of a high-performance material in shades of black and anthracite, whose iridescent effects play off the white dial and strap.

DOXA SUB 300 Carbon COSC Whitepearl

A fresh take on an icon that is not just certified Contemporary. Precise, robust and dependable, the SUB 300 Carbon Whitepearl’s movement also meets the standards set forth by the prestigious COSC (for Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres), which certifies the chronometric performance and the scrupulous respect of the requirements in terms of reliability, shock resistance, automatic winding and ease of maintenance.

From this day forward, Whitepearl white is also an option for the legendary SUB 300 and SUB 300T in steel.

DOXA SUB 300 Whitepearl
DOXA SUB 300 Whitepearl

After Sharkhunter Black, Searambler Silver, Aquamarine Turquoise, Divingstar Yellow, Caribbean Navy Blue, and of course Professional Orange (the one at the origin of the timeless legend), the family welcomes Whitepearl White into the fold.

The SUB 300 by DOXA is COSC-certified and water-resistant to 30 ATM (300 meters, approx. 980 feet). The 300T is rated to 120 ATM and can go down to 1,200 meters or about 4,000 feet.

DOXA SUB 300T Whitepearl
DOXA SUB 300T Whitepearl

The new SUB 600T in steel, presented to great acclaim last November, and now enhanced with a unidirectional rotating bezel featuring a white ceramic or sandblasted steel insert with time and depth scales.

DOXA SUB 600T Whitepearl

Instantly recognizable by the offset crown at 4 o’clock, its 40mm case is carved from a block of 316L stainless steel. This model is water-resistant to 60 ATM (600 meters. approx. 1,970 feet). Its sheer massiveness, the chamfered edges and angular lines mean business, a sense of purpose expressed even more unequivocally now with the white dial.

DOXA SUB 1500T Whitepearl
DOXA SUB 1500T Whitepearl

The DOXA SUB 1500T Whitepearl is the pièce de resistance in the collection. It is resistant to 150 ATM of pressure – i.e., rated to a depth of 1,500 meters, approx. 5,000 feet. Its stainless steel case measures 45 mm diameter.

YEMA MEANGRAF SOUS-MARINE

Inspired by YEMA’s 1960’s iconic model, the new MEANGRAF SOUS-MARINE is a high-quality, all-rounder tool watch with a distinct neo-vintage design.

YEMA MEANGRAF SOUS-MARINE

The new MEANGRAF SOUS-MARINE watch has a stylish 39mm 316L stainless steel case with elegant brushed-polished finishes with built-in bezel. A helium escape valve has been integrated as to achieve water resistance of 990ft / 300m. A high quality 2.60mm thick double domed sapphire crystal provides a resolute vintage look.

YEMA MEANGRAF SOUS-MARINE

The MEANGRAF’s bi-directional diving bezel is made of extremely durable, scratch resistant sapphire. The aluminium insert beneath offers luminous markings to easily calculate dive time under low light conditions.

YEMA MEANGRAF SOUS-MARINE

The second-generation in-house Caliber YEMA2000 is powered by optimised components offering a Daily Rate of +/- 10 s/d and a power reserve of 42h.

YEMA MEANGRAF SOUS-MARINE

The dial design is instantly recognisable by the slightly recessed hour markers, the large minutes and 24h rehauts and the famous yellow vertical stripes and sweeping second hand.

YEMA MEANGRAF SOUS-MARINE

For MEANGRAF SOUS-MARINE, YEMA is offering two types of straps. The vintage brown leather strap with large perforations is reminiscent of ancient sports cars’ steering wheels. It is fitted with a new high-quality steel buckle.

YEMA MEANGRAF SOUS-MARINE

The new RUBBER FKM VITON® BAND has been developed for the Meangraf and engineered for intensive use in all extreme conditions thanks to its light, flexible and highly resistant VITON® material which also repels dust. The elegant 316L Stainless Steel deployant buckle adds style and comfort.

This new collection is available with two models of 250 timepieces each.

Kross Studio Boba Fett Collector Set

One of the most enigmatic characters in the Star Wars galaxy has inspired Kross Studio’s latest creation, in collaboration with Lucasfilm.

The Swiss design studio has revealed a new and limited edition of ten Boba Fett-inspired collector sets, each complete with a numbered, manual wound Boba Fett-inspired central Tourbillon timepiece and a watch display by EFX, inspired by Boba Fett’s famed starship.

The central tourbillon is showcased within a 45mm grade 5 titanium case, coated with chocolate PVD. Kross Studio engineers reached another level by undertaking the challenge of manufacturing a miniature starship on its landing platform at the top of the tourbillon’s cage.

Kross Studio Boba Fett Collector Set

Composed of eight pieces, each miniature tourbillon resembling Boba Fett’s firespray starship has been produced at Kross Studio and manufactured in CNC machines. Each piece has been meticulously engraved and hand painted to mimic the weathered appearance of Boba Fett’s ship as it appears in Bespin™ at Cloud City in the Star Wars film saga.

The level of detail is incredible, and it highlights the unique savoir-faire perpetuated by artisans in Switzerland. It took 90 hours to make each of the ten pieces that are based on the starship and each one is a unique piece.

Kross Studio has employed a unique peripheral format for reading the hours and minutes through a planetary gear system that orbits 360 degrees around the tourbillon. A 12-factor gear ratio allows the planetary minutes system to empower the progression of the hours.

Kross Studio Boba Fett Collector Set

In order to optimize the movement’s efficiency as much as possible, the hour and minute display system is fixed on two very wide and high-precision ball bearings. The hour hand is inspired by Boba Fett’s jetpack and the minute hand by its rocket, two iconic items that the bounty hunter carries permanently.

The clarity and symmetry of the Boba Fett-inspired Tourbillon dial belies the complexity of its manual-wound central tourbillon movement, which is composed of 220 parts. Each of the ten numbered timepieces was designed and assembled within the Kross Studio atelier in Gland, Switzerland.

Kross Studio Boba Fett Tourbillon

No visible crown impedes the case’s perfect symmetry thanks to Kross Studio’s ingenious D-ring crown system, placed instead on the case back. The barrel’s mainspring is wound by lifting the D-ring on the case back, which is turned like a key, offering a more intuitive and more efficient user experience than a traditional crown.

Kross Studio Boba Fett Tourbillon

The timepiece offers a maximum power reserve of five days. Time-setting is just as simple, completed by pressing the “Time Set” push button at 3 o’clock while simultaneously turning the case back D-ring in either direction.

Kross Studio Boba Fett Tourbillon

Cleverly hidden quick-release strap buttons on the underside of the case also help preserve the timepiece’s clean lines, a handy feature which allows quick strap changes from the included green polyamide strap embossed with the pattern of Boba Fett’s chest armor to either of the other included straps: the chocolate color calf leather strap and the black rubber strap. To optimize durability and comfort, each included strap has been reinforced with black rubber inlay.

Kross Studio Boba Fett Collector Set

Kross Studio worked with EFX to create ten unique watch displays that would fit the Boba Fett collector set. The company is known worldwide as an exceptional manufacturer of extremely high quality “screen accurate” limited edition prop replicas and collectibles from favorite films, television, video games and other entertainment media.

It made perfect sense to take inspiration from Boba Fett’s iconic starship and to make a watch display that can carry the Boba Fett Tourbillon in its cockpit while being displayed as an art piece in a select few collectors’ rooms.

Each EFX Boba Fett’s starship watch display is the same scale as the actual filming model as seen in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back™. They are made with an aluminum and acrylic substructure with the detail parts cast in resin.

Each detail piece is individually cast from a master made from the same model kit parts used to make the screen used prop and then carefully finished and painted by hand. The parts of the EFX Boba Fett’s starship-inspired watch display were developed with a thorough review of the screen used prop.

The starship-inspired watch display comes affixed on a platform resembling a ship landing pad and made of wood in Kross Studio ateliers.

Boba Fett leaves no detail to chance, a quality that cemented his legendary status for legions of Star Wars fans. Kross Studio shares his consummate quest for precision, and with each subsequent design, the brand secures its iconic status in our galaxy.

Like the Death Star™ Ultimate Collector Set before it, this 10-piece series of Boba Fett Collector Sets will never be produced again, joining the pantheon of the galaxy’s most highly sought Star Wars collectibles.

Boba Fett collector sets ($120,000 USD each) will be available for individual sale at kross-studio.com, or through official partners and select authorized retailers.

Porsche Design Chronograph 1 All Black Numbered Edition

With the Chronograph 1 – All Black Numbered Edition, Porsche Design is bringing the next generation of the legendary 1972 classic back to the market.

Based on the design of the Chronograph 1 – 1972 Limited Edition, of which 500 pieces were originally produced and sold, and which was released in January 2022 to celebrate Porsche Design’s 50th anniversary, the new Chronograph 1 – All Black Numbered Edition features numerous upgraded details. The inimitable design of the original wristwatch has retained its legendary status. But the time has come to write a new chapter in the history of the Chronograph I.

Porsche Design Chronograph 1 All Black Numbered Edition

Starting in November, this exclusive timepiece will be released as a limited series, with a maximum of 1,000 timepieces produced per year worldwide. The sequential numbering on the back of the housing makes each piece truly one of a kind.

Manufactured at Porsche Design Timepieces AG, the in-house watch-making facility in Solothurn, Switzerland, the Chronograph 1 – All Black Numbered Edition pays further tribute to the iconic original and will continue to exude the essence of Porsche Design long after the anniversary year is over.

Porsche Design Chronograph 1 All Black Numbered Edition

The Chronograph 1—All Black Numbered Edition is reminiscent of the pure design of the completely black timepiece from 1972.

In similar fashion to its revolutionary predecessor, the Chronograph 1 — All Black Numbered Edition impresses with its matte-black dial. It was the first time F. A. Porsche had succeeded in transferring his idea of the design, aesthetics, and functionality of a sports car to a watch.

The easily readable dial behind anti-reflective glass was inspired by the dashboard in the cockpit of the Porsche 911. The crown and wristband feature the current Porsche Design logo. On the back, the sapphire-crystal case back reveals the Porsche Design icon of the winding rotor.

Porsche Design Chronograph 1 All Black Numbered Edition

The double-sided, seven-layer anti-reflective and scratch-resistant sapphire-crystal glass with its hardened coating ensures optimal readability, no matter what time of day it is. The tachymeter and the day/date display use the current Porsche font. Last but not least, the minute hand captures the tapered design once optimized by F. A. Porsche.

The ‘All Black’ wristwatch is powered by a mechanical, COSC-certified WERK 01.140 chronometer for maximum precision. Details such as the all-black coated titanium detachable wristband with minutely adjustable folding clasp breathe new life into this historic classic: a unique and timeless precision instrument that carries the Porsche Design DNA through and through — today as much as in the past.

Porsche Design Chronograph 1 All Black Numbered Edition

Like all chronographs manufactured by Porsche Design, this wristwatch is made by hand with a keen eye for detail. Porsche Design has had its own exclusive manufacturing company in the Swiss town of Solothurn since 2014: Porsche Design Timepieces AG.

Porsche Design Chronograph 1 All Black Numbered Edition

The Chronograph — All Black Numbered Edition can now be pre-ordered online as well as in Porsche Design Stores and from selected watch retailers for €8,950.

Formex Essence Leggera Chronometer Carbon/Ceramic 43mm and 41mm

Swiss watch brand Formex unveils new variants of its best-selling Essence Leggera Collection. Crafted from lightweight carbon and ceramic, the Essence Leggera is light in weight, but heavy in technical features.

The collection is available in the original 43mm size, and on popular demand, in a new, smaller and even lighter 41mm version.

Formex Essence Leggera Chronometer Carbon/Ceramic

The Leggera Chronometer collection is available (43mm pre-order with delivery end of May / 41mm pre-order with delivery beginning of July 2022) in five dial versions – Forged Carbon, Cool Grey, Electric Blue, Arctic White and Mamba Green, starting at US$ 1,640.00.

Formex Essence Leggera Chronometer Carbon/Ceramic

The Essence Leggera watch is extremely light, but thanks to the high-tech materials used, it is also strong, hypoallergenic, anti-magnetic and corrosion-resistant.

Formex Essence Leggera Chronometer Carbon/Ceramic

In addition to reducing the weight by about 40% compared to the steel version, the proprietary carbon fiber composite used in the Leggera’s case gives the watch an extremely smooth feel on the wrist. Made of same material, the folding clasp features a patented, gradual fine-adjustment system that perfectly adapts to the wrist’s ever-changing size due to heat and humidity.

Formex Essence Leggera Chronometer Carbon/Ceramic

The case of a watch protects the movement, but it has a few vulnerable points – the crown and bezel, for example. With a hardness that surpasses that of any traditional metal used in traditional watchmaking, Formex utilizes Zirconium oxide ceramics on both the bezel and the crown, making them virtually scratchproof.

Formex Essence Leggera Chronometer Carbon/Ceramic

Four hexagon screws connect the upper and lower case, and hide Formex’s patented 4-fold Case Suspension System, which adapts to the wearer’s movement and increases the comfort on the wrist.

Formex Essence Leggera Chronometer Carbon/Ceramic

The Swiss Made Sellita SW-200 automatic movement ensures both accuracy and reliability. It comes in its highest quality grade ”Chronometer”, using top of the line components only found in Chronometer-grade movements. It’s beautifully decorated with perlage on the bridges and thermally blued screws on the movement and the custom-made rotor.

Formex Essence Leggera Chronometer Carbon/Ceramic

Each of the movements undergoes the COSC-certification process, a meticulous 15-day rate test to ensure extraordinary levels of mechanical accuracy and precision. Only the movements who pass the stringent assessment will be certified and engraved with a unique serial number. The movements’ power reserve extends to 41 hours.

Formex Essence Leggera Chronometer Carbon/Ceramic

 

The new collection includes five dials that are different in looks but all ensure perfect legibility due to the contrast and finishing of hands and hour markers, which are deep filled with BGW9 Super-LumiNova lume.

The glossy Cool Grey, sunray Electric Blue, brushed Arctic White and Mamba Green dials are priced at US$ 1,640.00 on a custom NATO strap designed by WatchGecko, and US$ 1,790.00 on Formex’s leather/rubber/nylon strap with their patented carbon clasp.

Formex Essence Leggera Chronometer Carbon/Ceramic

The Forged Carbon dial, made of an extremely thinly cut Forged Carbon blade, each with an individual pattern, is slightly more expensive at US$ 1,840.00 on a custom NATO strap designed by WatchGecko, and US$1,990.00 on Formex’s leather/rubber/nylon strap.

Louis Erard x Alain Silberstein Le Diptyque

Swiss luxury watch brand Louis Erard celebrates 2022 with a special edition of two pieces made in collaboration with Alain Silberstein.

Louis Erard x Alain Silberstein Le Diptyque

This new diptych comes with two new variants, Le Régulateur Louis Erard x Alain Silberstein Blanc and La Semaine Louis Erard x Alain Silberstein Blanche. The two references are produced in a limited series of 178 pieces.

Louis Erard x Alain Silberstein Le Diptyque

The first Louis Erard x Alain Silberstein watch collection was introduced in 2019. In 2021, the Louis Erard x Alain Silberstein Le Triptyque Mono-Pusher Chronograph was released. Diptych is the third collaborative project.

Apart from the white dial and the light grey strap, this diptych takes up the exterior elements of the 2021 triptych version.

Louis Erard x Alain Silberstein Le Diptyque

A case composed of a tubular container in microblasted grade 2 titanium and transparent caseback, fixed on a vertical sidebar called “brancard” in polished grade 5 titanium and flanked by a signature conical crown stamped with the Louis Erard symbol.

The strap is made of special nylon, breathable, ergonomic and adjustable for perfect wearing comfort.

Louis Erard x Alain Silberstein Le Diptyque

The individual sale price is CHF 4,000. The previous chapters of the Louis Erard x Alain Silberstein collaboration have already proven this with a sustained rating on the secondary market. A price that also signs Louis Erard’s profession of faith: to be the access point to exceptional watchmaking, through capsule editions with contemporary creative artists, and special series dedicated to métiers d’art.

Louis Erard x Alain Silberstein Le Diptyque

Fifty-six watches in a special diptych box set will be available at the exceptional price of CHF 7,777.

Laurent Ferrier Classic Origin Blue

LAURENT FERRIER has launched an intense blue version of one of its emblematic models, the Classic Origin.

Initially developed to pay tribute to all the aesthetic codes created by Mr Laurent Ferrier himself in 2010, the Classic Origin has succeeded in becoming an icon of the LF collection.

After the Classic Micro-Rotor, the Classic Traveller, the Square Micro-Rotor, the École Annual Calendar, the Grand Sport Tourbillon and the recent Sport Auto, it seemed self-evident to adorn the Classic Origin with a deep blue dial.

Laurent Ferrier Classic Origin Blue

The carefully selected intensity of blue on this new dial, along with the graphic lines borrowed from the Annual Calendar, give this latest reference a very modern and dynamic feel, similar to the previous Classic Origin Opaline and Classic Origin Green.

The opaline dial presents a gradation of blues that transition from a lighter shade in the centre to deepest blue around the periphery. The discreet powdery-grey hour track is punctuated by sky-blue numerals.

Laurent Ferrier Classic Origin Blue

The composition is finished off with a powdery-grey centre cross and four of the brand’s iconic drop-shaped indices. A snailed seconds counter at 6 o’clock features subtle sky-blue markers. Sweeping over the dial are LF’s famous Assegai-shaped hour and minute hands, in 18-carat white gold.

This intense blue dial sits within the brand’s timeless Classic case. The Grade 5 titanium 40 mm diameter case features the same harmonious contours as the very first LAURENT FERRIER creation, the Classic Tourbillon.

It also features the same emblematic ball-shaped crown whose gracious architecture is inspired by 19th-century pocket watches. Its original proportions and plump shape make winding a true pleasure.

Laurent Ferrier Classic Origin Blue

The manual-winding Calibre LF116.01 has been crafted with the greatest refinement. Visible through the sapphire case back, it incorporates a screw balance and Breguet-type overcoil balance-spring. This combination enhances precision and mitigates positional timekeeping errors while improving isochronism.

The brand’s famous long-blade ratchet system is another highlight of the movement. This polished, hand-crafted ratchet is emblematic of the LAURENT FERRIER brand, offering an inimitable sound during winding that is characteristic of the most demanding watches.

When the Classic Origin Blue is perfectly wound, it can operate independently for 80 hours thanks to its excellent power reserve.

Laurent Ferrier calibre LF116.01
Laurent Ferrier calibre LF116.01

While the Calibre LF116.01 may be more minimalist than some of the brand’s complication movements, it offers the same high-end finishes as every other LAURENT FERRIER creation.

The bridges are microbeaded, with black rhodium finish and entirely hand-polished edges. Each screw-head is mirror polished and the escapement bridge is adorned with a hand-made interior angle, reflecting the workshop’s meticulous attention to detail.

The Classic Origin Blue is fitted with a midnight blue Nubuck strap with tone-on-tone Alcantara lining.

Hublot Big Bang Unico UEFA Champions League 42 mm Limited Edition

To celebrate seven years of collaboration with UEFA Champions League, Hublot is launching an exclusive edition of the Big Bang Unico, limited to 100 pieces.

Hublot Big Bang Unico UEFA Champions League 42 mm Limited Edition

Hublot has been associated with the UEFA Champions League since 2008 with an initial collaboration with the UEFA EURO which then became a long-term partnership in 2012 as timekeeper and official watch.

Then in 2015, Hublot became timekeeper and official watch for the UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Europa League. Hublot is also the official supplier of the referee’s watches. Since 2018, Hublot has been the partner of the UEFA Europa Conference League (UECL) for the first 2021-2022 season and since 2019 for the UEFA Women’s Champions League.

Hublot Big Bang Unico UEFA Champions League 42 mm Limited Edition

For this new limited edition of 100 pieces, the Big Bang Unico sports the iconic UEFA Champions League blue, cut from micro-blasted ceramic. The key moments on the pitch are timed with the Unico 2– Hublot’s manufacture chronograph movement – a more complicated and advanced movement for irreproachable reliability.

Hublot Big Bang Unico UEFA Champions League 42 mm Limited Edition

The UEFA Champions League is the most prestigious European interclub competition – created 67 years ago as the “European Champion Clubs’ Cup”. At the time of its creation in 1955, UEFA had just written its articles of association.

In 1991, the straight knockout format was replaced with group stages after the round of 16, and the Cup changed its name to the UEFA Champions League in 1992, with eight teams initially in the competition. Today, the UEFA Champions League is the most-watched annual sports competition in the world. It’s also the favourite amongst the players, the clubs, and the fans.

ARTISANS DE GENEVE “Rusty”

ARTISANS DE GENEVE is an independent Swiss horological workshop that offers a service of personalization of timepieces at the request of customers.

With the Rusty Project, the client wanted to travel his Daytona® back in time to make it completely unique. To do this, ARTISANS DE GENEVE developed an oxidized patina method — a technique to control the aging of the counters and reach the exact tint the client wanted for his dial.

ARTISANS DE GENEVE “Rusty”

After being applied with a specific treatment, the dial was sent to the Azores, an island with one of the highest rates of humidity. The piece was carefully monitored during 10 weeks to develop this unique brown patina.

ARTISANS DE GENEVE “Rusty”

The oxidized dial is complemented by counters in amber, the hands are delicately polished and features lume backlight technology with a phosphorescent brown in the dark. The hands are polished and rhodium-plated, thanks to Luminova Backlight technology. The bezel features a brass brown insert to enhance the aged dial.

ARTISANS DE GENEVE “Rusty”

The case-back is fitted with a sapphire crystal, allowing the owner to admire the self-winding movement featuring a 21K gold oscillating weight. The unique skeletonization of the 4130 caliber reveals the gold gear trains.

DOXA Army Watches of Switzerland Edition

50 years after the DOXA Army was born, the iconic Swiss watch brand honours its history with the Swiss Army’s elite divers unit by reissuing, for the first time, a limited edition of the famous model that has become an instantly recognizable cult timepiece.

DOXA Army Watches of Switzerland Edition

Limited to only 100 pieces, this timepiece was created in collaboration with DOXA’s partner, Watches of Switzerland.

DOXA Army Watches of Switzerland Edition

Six months after receiving the official recognition (in November 2021) from the Swiss Army Combat Divers by Federal Councillor Viola Amherd, Head of the Federal Department of Defence, Civil Protection and Sport DDPS, DOXA pays a fitting tribute by reissuing the iconic DOXA Army.

DOXA Army Watches of Switzerland Edition

DOXA stands out in the Swiss watchmaking landscape as one of the finest examples of a discreet watch brand with a rich and exciting history. Now located in Biel, in the heart of the watchmaking industry, and owned by the Swiss Jenny family, DOXA remains one of the legendary brands in the field of diving watches. Numerous patents and prizes at national and international exhibitions, too, have contributed to its remarkable history and outstanding heritage.

The SUB 300 and SUB 300T unveiled at Baselworld in 1967 were the first 100% professional diving watches designed to be affordable to a broader public. And because of their quality and the radical innovations they introduce, they quickly became the reference for uncompromising professionals as well.

These two models, water resistant to a pressure depth of 30 ATM (short for atmospheres, i.e., 300 meters or just over 980 feet), were also the first diving watches ever to feature a patented unidirectional rotating bezel for calculating and monitoring the dive time to ensure a safe ascent without decompression stops.

DOXA Army Watches of Switzerland Edition

Another first in the diving watch universe: the bright orange dial, a legendary hallmark of the DOXA SUB concept.

Besides cementing its credentials as a tool watch, the orange dial makes a DOXA SUB instantly recognizable from afar – and quite distinctive from the standard black or white dials on all the other dive watches at the time. In addition, prominent indexes and an oversized minute hand (after all, that is the main unit of time when diving) coated with beige Super-Luminova™, makes it easier still to register mission-critical information in the low visibility conditions encountered underwater.

Within a year, in 1968, Captain Jacques-Yves Cousteau, co-inventor of the Aqua-Lung breathing apparatus and the spiritual father of modern scuba diving, adopted the DOXA SUB concept. The SUB’s orange dial became the sign of recognition on the wrists of the divers jumping into the water from the deck of “Calypso” to take millions of viewers on the legendary missions of “The Undersea World of Jacques Cousteau”.

In 1969, the DOXA SUB concept passed muster as the Official Watch of the Swiss Army’s Elite Combat Diving unit.

In 1966, the Swiss Army established a special force of military divers, trained to become an elite corps. The first members of this highly specialized Swiss diving unit began training in 1968. It was also around this time that the DOXA SUB 300T passed the stringent evaluation procedure set up by the Swiss Army for the items that would be part of the standard equipment issued to its divers.

Between 1968 and 1975, Swiss Army combat divers were systematically equipped with a SUB 300T Professional – the same as the one launched in 1967.

Approximately 150 SUB 300T Professional watches were issued to the Swiss Army’s elite divers. Etched on the back of each case: the serial number matching the personal diving equipment with each diver, who was also allowed to use the watch off-duty.

The SUB 300T was so popular with the Swiss Army’s elite diving unit that other units outside of Switzerland also adopted this model.

DOXA Army Watches of Switzerland Edition

In 1969, within the framework of its collaboration with the Swiss Army, DOXA developed a dedicated model, aptly designated “Army”–and branded “The ideal watch for military divers”.

The distinctive matte black case, matte black insert diving bezel and sand-beige dial eliminated any risk of glare whilst ensuring excellent readability in low visibility conditions. In fact, Dr. Peter Nussberger, the Swiss physician of world renown at the forefront of diving medicine (also referred to as undersea and hyperbaric medicine (UHB) and author of numerous reference works, actively accompanied the Swiss Army’s divers – and received his personal DOXA Army as part of his own military service.

DOXA Army Watches of Switzerland Edition

The DOXA Army occupies a special place in the brand’s history not only because of its connection with the Swiss Army. It was also one of the very first watches to use a coating process for cases that was relatively new to the watchmaking industry: the stainless-steel case was blackened by oxidation, giving it a matte black finish that prevented any glare, a key criterion for military equipment. This visual effect, quite original at the time, is maintained in today’s reissue through the choice of matte black ceramic for the case.

DOXA Army Watches of Switzerland Edition

The DOXA Army remains a fine example of DOXA’s innovative spirit in the development of diving instruments perfectly adapted to each situation, be it for scuba pioneers such as Captain Jacques Cousteau and his team aboard the Calypso (who praised the patented no-decompression dive bezel introduced with the first SUB models), for professional divers (who appreciated the additional safety and utility of the helium valve-equipped SUB 300T Conquistador), or for use in the military (with the discreet DOXA Army).

DOXA Army Watches of Switzerland Edition

Just like the first SUB with its original orange dial, the DOXA Army of that era is now one of the rarest and most sought-after models of the DOXA brand.

DOXA Army Watches of Switzerland Edition

Today, more than 50 years after its debut, DOXA and its Anglo-American partner Watches of Switzerland are reissuing the DOXA Army in a very small Limited Edition of only 100 pieces.

DOXA Army Watches of Switzerland Edition

Each watch comes in a packaging designed specifically for this edition and sporting the original camouflage pattern used by the Swiss Army at the time the watch was first issued. The box also includes two straps: one made from black FKM rubber and one NATO strap with a camouflage pattern.

DOXA Army Watches of Switzerland Edition

The DOXA Army reissue is available at all Watches of Switzerland retail outlets where DOXA Watches is represented, and on the Watches of Switzerland and DOXA Watches e-commerce platforms.

RGM Type 1 – Montgomery (Marginal Minute Dial)

Celebrating its 30th Anniversary year, RGM adds another Railroad dial to the Model 222-RR series.

Inspired by America’s Great Railroad Watches from the past, the Model 222-RR is a modern wristwatch with a vintage heart, featuring a Hamilton pocket watch movement. RGM was the first to use these wonderful classic movements in a wristwatch.

RGM Type 1 - Montgomery (Marginal Minute Dial)

These vintage Hamilton movements are rebuilt using parts that are in optimum condition, including a new mainspring made for this movement. The watchmaker of RGM flat polishes the steel parts by hand on a tin block to better-than-original condition.

RGM Type 1 - Montgomery (Marginal Minute Dial)

The entire process of careful reassembly to precise adjustment of the movement is managed by one watchmaker. The grade 921 movement has 21 jewels and was made in large quantities; the grade 923 has 23 jewels and is rare, with less than 4,000 movements manufactured.

RGM Type 1 - Montgomery (Marginal Minute Dial)

The Grand Feu Real Enamel dial is modeled after American railroad watches from the past. The blued-steel hands remain true to the classic form and the 1:30 crown position pays homage to early 20th century timepieces. It’s also very natural to read the time when worn on the left wrist.

Henry S. Montgomery was the General Watch & Clock Inspector of the AT&SF Railroad from 1896 to 1923. Mr. Montgomery patented his first marginal minute safety dial design Type I around 1906. This is the design that has inspired the new version of RGM’s Model 222-RR watch.

RGM Type 1 - Montgomery (Marginal Minute Dial)

A Montgomery dial displays minutes 1-60 along the outer edge, with every fifth number in red. Some collectors say that a “true” Montgomery dial must have an hour number 6 visible inside the seconds’ register. Dials approved for use on the railroads needed to be functional and readable, even under adverse conditions. Most American watch companies used Montgomery dials on many of their railroad-grade watches.

RGM Type 1 - Montgomery (Marginal Minute Dial)

The watch features the crown at the 1:30 position. During the Transitional Period from the early 1900s into the 1920s, some wristwatches appeared with the winding crown in this less common position on the wristwatch case.

RGM Type 1 - Montgomery (Marginal Minute Dial)

Some watch companies converted movements and dials that were originally designed for a pocket or pendant watch into a wristwatch by making the crown position on the wristwatch case at the 1:30 or 2:00 O’clock.

Celebrating the unique look of those early wristwatches is the inspiration behind the RGM Model 222-RR. It also keeps the orientation of the sub-second in line with the 12 O’clock position thus preserving the original design of the railroad-style dial.
