Baume & Mercier CLASSIMA New Models

Baume & Mercier has released four new self-winding watches from its CLASSIMA collection. Among them, three models are for men and the remaining one is dedicated to women.

CLASSIMA – M0A10695 & M0A10696

Baume & Mercier revisits the street style codes in a play of materials and timeless shades. Khaki is in the spotlight, with a versatile palette ranging from sand beige to olive green, offering a natural effect that adapts to every style.

With two large-sized models for a casual yet refined look, Classima explores this trend with elegance and understatement: khaki and sand hues, and a mixture of canvas, slate and steel.

Each watch features a 42 mm polished steel case with a screwed back and a self-winding movement with a 38-hour power reserve.

Baume & Mercier CLASSIMA 42 mm Automatic (with slate-grey dial and sand coloured flange), Reference M0A10695

The CLASSIMA M0A10695 model comes with a slate sun satin dial and sand-colored flange which coordinates with the hue of the solid canvas strap.

Rhodium-plated leaf hands delicately sweep along the enchanting undertones of the slate, pointing to the white Roman numerals and indexes which adorn the round dial. A date aperture appears at 3 o’clock. For an aesthetic touch, the seconds hand is beige, the dominating color of this model.

The CLASSIMA M0A10696 model reveals a warm silver sun satin dial, with a green flange that emphasizes the perfect roundness of this adventurous Classima. Black Roman numerals and indexes are indicated by black leaf hour and minute hands.

The seconds hand is green, like a camouflage for this setting. The interchangeable green canvas strap provides casual character, but the timepiece remains a smart, understated, contemporary watch.

CLASSIMA – M0A10694 & M0A10691

Made for the perfect classic chic look, these Baume & Mercier CLASSIMA watches feature eye-catching burgundy color dial.

CLASSIMA M0A10694: This gent’s Classima watch comes with a polished 42 mm steel case. It features a large burgundy sun satin dial with a blue flange which brings the minute track a more pronounced depth. In turn, it emphasizes the perfectly balanced circle.

The three rhodium-plated leaf hands delicately point to the white Roman numerals and indexes. An elegant date aperture is unveiled at 3 o’clock.

The self-winding movement, which offers a 38-hour power reserve, is nestled within the case. Its solid back offers room for the creativity of a personalized engraving. A straight spring-bar system makes it possible to change the strap easily.

CLASSIMA M0A10691: This adorable 34 mm ladies watch has a polished steel case, mounted on a five-row metal strap that elegantly nestles against the wrist. The quick, simple interchangeability system makes it easy to switch to the blue canvas version, offering a versatile look.

The small, perfectly round case is incredibly slender, and it reveals a sun satin dial with hypnotic burgundy and blue undertones. The eye is then drawn along the iridescent minute track that curves along the edge. It features the rhodium-plated Roman numerals and indexes characteristic of this collection. Leaf hands sweep lightly along them. A date aperture appears at 3 o’clock.

BAUME & MERCIER BAUME OCEAN II

Swiss watch brand BAUME & MERCIER presents BAUME OCEAN II, a new timpiece crafted from upcycled materials in collaboration with the Belgian NGO Waste Free Oceans (WFO) and the Spanish organization SEAQUAL INITIATIVE.

These two leaders in ocean protection, with which the House has been working since 2018, collect plastic pollution from the oceans and to transform it into innovative products. The Swiss watch maker released this new BAUME OCEAN II watch on the World Ocean Day (06 June) this year.

BAUME & MERCIER BAUME OCEAN II

The case of the new BAUME OCEAN II model is made with marine debris plastic that is recovered throughout the world by WFO and then processed. Special attention was brought to the selection of the material to ensure that it is of a high quality in terms of performance and durability. The watch case features a recycled plastic cover produced by WFO, composed of 80% plastic waste gathered by the NGO that has been mingled with 20% fiberglass in order to reinforce its resistance.

BAUME & MERCIER BAUME OCEAN II

By combining a movement protected by an aluminum container with the case that clips onto it, the innovative structure of the BAUME OCEAN II brings life to a creation that perfectly mingles design with Swiss watchmaking quality.

The great purity of the sun satin-finished oceanic blue dial is heightened by the ideal proportions of the shapes and finishes so distinctive of BAUME & MERCIER. The model maintains emblematic BAUME features like the off-center knurled crown at 12 o’clock reminiscent of pocket watches, as well as articulated lugs in black anodized aluminum.

BAUME & MERCIER BAUME OCEAN II

The reworked case is open-worked on the side instead of being solid, revealing the blue anodized aluminum container that protects the movement. The blue vibe and open-working emphasize the athletic line of this exquisitely designed timepiece, while white transfers contrast with the blue background to lend the piece a depth evoking the ocean.

BAUME & MERCIER BAUME OCEAN II

BAUME & MERCIER has gone one step further into its original approach to displaying time by replacing the large minute hand with a small hand in the shape of a bird’s beak to create the illusion of a single central hand.

The BAUME OCEAN II watch is equipped with a Swiss Made self-winding mechanical movement with a 38-hour power reserve. It is water-resistant to 30 meters.

BAUME & MERCIER BAUME OCEAN II

The new BAUME OCEAN II features a woven strap in upcycled PET (made of 100% recycled plastic) with lighter blue overstitching. The edge is remborded and lined with black cork for improved comfort in wear. The interchangeable strap may be detached and changed thanks to a system of recycled walnut buttons.

BAUME & MERCIER BAUME OCEAN II

The new BAUME OCEAN II model comes in a hexagonal recyclable cardboard box with a felt lining in recycled polyester.

BAUME & MERCIER will donate 5% from the proceeds of the BAUME OCEAN II watch to its two partners, Waste Free Oceans and SEAQUAL INITIATIVE.

CITIZEN PROMASTER Eco-Drive Diver 200m Limited Edition Model BN0225-04L

CITIZEN’s new limited edition PROMASTER Eco-Drive Diver 200m watch is a tribute to the endangered whale shark. This new model is a limited-edition of 5,000 pieces worldwide. A portion of the sales revenue from this model will go to support the marine conservation activities of international NGO Conservation International (CI).

The design of this model was inspired by whale sharks that can be found in plankton-rich, temperate seas near the equator. The dial and bezel feature a beautiful deep blue color evoking the ocean, and the pattern on the dial is inspired by the unique spot patterns on each whale shark’s back.

CITIZEN PROMASTER Eco-Drive Diver 200m Limited Edition Model BN0225-04L

The case design is inspired by the iconic 1982 Professional Diver which had the highest depth rating in the world – pressure resistance up to 1,300 meters – at the time of its release. The lug-less case silhouette, the four bezel guards, and the large indentations on the rotating bezel give the watch a bold, distinctive look.

The new PROMASTER Eco-Drive Diver 200m also features a sandblasted finish to recreate the distinctive rugged look of the original model. The massive 45.8mm diameter case is made from Super Titanium™ finished with CITIZEN’s proprietary Duratect MRK and Duratect DLC surface hardening technology, making it resistant to scuffs and scratches.

The bold hands and indices also ensure superior visibility. This light-powered Eco-Drive watch does not require regular battery replacement. An ISO compliant diver’s watch to 200 meters, it features an embossed whale shark silhouette on the case back.

Hermès ARCEAU Pocket cheval punk

Hermès has created a unique tourbillon minute repeater pocket watch that combines artistic techniques like engraving and enamelling with complex horological mechanisms.

The unique Arceau Pocket cheval punk reveals a playful alliance of craftsmanship and fine watchmaking. Its open-worked white gold cover, adorned with an engraved equestrian profile painted in miniature enamel, frames a champlevé enamelled dial and a Hermès tourbillon minute repeater movement.

The punk horse motif is drawn from a men’s silk scarf designed by Daiske Nomura in 2021. The Japanese designer illustrator, who loves to divert and stage the company’s emblems, was inspired by a figurine from the Emile Hermès collection: a horse whose thick mane evokes a punk crest.

The artist has mixed in numerous elements from the museum in a whimsical and futuristic interpretation of the Hermès universe.

Fashioned in white gold, the horse with its flamboyant crest, harness and tattoo combines several demanding techniques and gives a glimpse of movement. Hundreds of hours of meticulous work bring the silhouette to life beneath under the burins and chisels of the master engraver, before being painted in miniature enamel.

Its slim cut-out then reveals an equally meticulous creation: a crisscrossed gold dial crafted in champlevé enamel. To achieve this, the artisan applies several layers of coloured glass powders mixed with natural oils to the engraved cavities, which are successively dried and fired in the kiln.

The cheval punk watch comes in an elegant round white gold case measuring 48 mm in diameter. It is equipped with the Hermès H1924 tourbillon minute repeater movement. An abyss blue alligator strap is attached to the rectangular stirrup and highlights the deep nuances of the decoration.

Hermès Cape Cod crepuscule

Known for the «square in a rectangle” case formed by two «anchor chain» half-links, the Hermès Cape Cod watch is now available with a blue-tinted monocrystalline silicon dial.

In 2018, Hermès initiated a meeting with the Neuchâtel-based Swiss Center for Electronics and Microtechnology (CSEM) as part of its search for a technological innovation that would be dedicated to creativity. This gave rise to a project for a dial made from a silicon wafer, which was to feature the intimate and refined «Crépuscule» (dusk) motif by designer-graphic artist Thanh-Phong Lê.

The dial with its slender gilded hands reveals the bluish shades sprinkled with yellow gold achieved by this unique method combining creativity and nanotechnology. A navy blue calfskin single or double tour strap crafted in the Hermès Horloger workshops sets the final touch to the Cape Cod crépuscule watch.

Used in microelectronics for its semiconductor properties, the silicon wafer was chosen here for its purely aesthetic qualities, representing a first. Depending on the amount of material deposited during production, its colour varies across an infinite palette of subtle and unique shades. This highly technological process is carried out by specialised engineers in the CSEM labs.

Hermès Cape Cod crepuscule

The dials of the Hermès Cape Cod crépuscule Hermès are created from a single 0.5 mm thick plate, which is coated in an extremely precise manner with a tiny (72-nanometre) film of silicon nitride to obtain the desired intense blue colour.

Then comes the photolithography stage, during which the wafer is exposed to a blue light so as to print the pattern. The process involves several successive baths, before the gold-coating stage, followed by other baths to remove any superfluous material. Finally, the plate is precisely cut to the shape of the Cape Cod case.

The new Arceau Les folies du ciel watch from the House of Hermès combines painting, engraving and animation to create a unique composition, inspired by Loïc Dubigeon’s «Les folies du ciel» silk scarf motif designed in 1984 to honour aerostatics.

The dial of Hermès Arceau Les folies du ciel evokes the early days of the conquest of the sky. They testify to the research conducted until the start of the 20th century in the field of hot-air balloon, airships and flying vessels.

On a mother-of-pearl dial whose textured hue can be seen through the wisps of smoke from the chimneys, two neoralite pink and green hot-air balloons billow in the wind. Their kiln-fired canvas takes on a curved relief that creates the illusion of the volume of hot air filling them and enabling them to take flight. Each surface is hand polished to give it a radiant sheen.

The two balloons are attached to a hand-painted white gold gondola in the shape of a bird. Perched above the tableau at 12 o’clock is a hand-painted and applied animated balloon. Designed as a balance, it spins on its axis in step with wrist movements, expressing the light, unexpected touch typical of Hermès creations.

«Hermès Par is» is embossed like a secret signature reserved for each of the 24 travellers for whom this limited series is intended.

Dressed in a 38 mm diameter white gold case, the Arceau Les folies du ciel watch houses a Manufacture Hermès mechanical movement with automatic winding and 50 hour power reserve. This timepiece comes with a Chantilly alligator leather strap.

It combines two magnificent horological complications. The complex mechanism of the double-gong minute repeater can be admired through the horse-shaped dial cut-out. The flying tourbillon is revealed through a round aperture at 6 o’clock.

The double-H tourbillon structure of the ARCEAU Lift Tourbillon Répétition Minutes So Black watch is inspired by an emblematic motif of the Hermès boutique in the Faubourg Saint-Honoré in Paris. This distinctive design surmounting the carriage and barrel bridge echoes the shape of the wrought iron adorning the entrance, railings, staircase and elevator of the Parisian establishment.

Swept over by slender, hollowed-out hands, the dial is punctuated by sloping numerals evoking a galloping horse, the signature of the Arceau line.

Hermès Arceau Le temps voyageur

The new Arceau watch presents a new expression of style and evokes the spirit of travel according to Hermès.

Crafted in platinum and titanium or in steel, the Arceau Le temps voyageur watch reveals the “Travelling time” mechanism developed exclusively for Hermès. It provides a disc-type display of 24 time zones. The satellite gravitates on a fantasy map, imagined by Jérôme Colliard for the “Planisphère d’un monde équestre” silk scarf.

Hermès Arceau Le temps voyageur (38mm stainless steel version)

The mobile counter and the home time indication at 12 o’clock are driven by a 122-component module, measuring just 4.4 mm thick, which is integrated within the Hermès H1837 mechanical self-winding movement. The mechanism powers the hours, minutes and dual-time display with city indication.

Hermès Arceau Le temps voyageur (41mm platinum version)

Two Arceau Le temps voyageur models are available. The first one has a 41 mm-diameter platinum version with a matt black DLC-treated titanium bezel. It spotlights a galvanized dial with grey and black color them. The second model features a 38 mm steel case and blue dial details.

BALL Watch Engineer Hydrocarbon Original, New Models

In 2020, to mark the 15th anniversary of its most robust and distinctive collection, the BALL Watch Company launched the Engineer Hydrocarbon Original watch with a black dial and matching bezel. The year 2021 witnessed the addition of new versions featuring blue or green dial with matching bezels.

BALL Watch Engineer Hydrocarbon Original, New Model with green dial and green sapphire bezel

The Engineer Hydrocarbon Original’s unidirectional bezel is made of blue or green sapphire and is graduated so that the diver can measure their dive time accurately and adjust their decompression stops in complete safety. For optimum handling of these specific diving functions, the bezel features special indents that allow it to be used with bare hands or with diving gloves.

BALL Watch Engineer Hydrocarbon Original, New Model with blue dial and blue sapphire bezel

Water-resistant to 200 m/660 ft, this model is one of the few to feature micro tubes of H₃ gas inside the sapphire bezel. The brand’s iconic tubes can also be found on the hands and, for the first time ever, under the dial, allowing for unrivalled luminosity in the dark. This cutting-edge Swiss technology does not require an external charging source and consists of glass microcapsules filled with gas. These are up to 100 times brighter than the Super LumiNova paint usually used in the watchmaking industry.

BALL Watch Engineer Hydrocarbon Original, New Model with blue dial and blue sapphire bezel

Powered by the COSC (Official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute) certified automatic calibre BALL RR1102-CSL, the Engineer Hydrocarbon Original features hour, minute, central seconds, day and date functions.

BALL Watch Engineer Hydrocarbon Original, New Model with green dial and green sapphire bezel

An already robust piece of equipment, this particularly resistant timepiece is complete with the patented Amortiser® shockproof system. Inside the movement itself, the SpringLOCK® and SpringSEAL® systems ensure continued accuracy in the event of shocks to the piece.

BALL Watch Engineer Hydrocarbon Original, New Model with green dial and green sapphire bezel

Faithful to the specifications of the Hydrocarbon collection, the crown is equipped with a protection system consisting of a valve covering it, so as to ensure that it is securely screwed-in and inaccessible when diving. To ensure its superior reliability, this model is resistant to shocks of up to 7,500 G and anti-magnetic to 80,000 A/m thanks to the mu-metal shielding.

BALL Watch Engineer Hydrocarbon Original, New Model with green dial and green sapphire bezel

Mumetal is an alloy of nickel, iron, copper and molybdenum with very high magnetic permeability, which enables it to attract and deflect static or low frequency magnetic field lines, against which other methods of attenuation are relatively ineffective.

BALL Watch Engineer Hydrocarbon Original, New Models

Originally designed for submarine exploration and diving, the Original is equally at home in the water and on dry land. This 43 mm steel watch is not only versatile but suitable for adventurers and explorers, as well as more urban and conventional individuals.

BALL Watch Engineer Hydrocarbon AeroGMT Sled Driver Limited Edition

Introduced in 2021, this limited edition timepiece pays tribute to United States Air Force (Ret) Major Brian Shul, one of only 92 pilots to fly the SR-71 Blackbird.

BALL Watch Engineer Hydrocarbon AeroGMT Sled Driver Limited Edition

Called “The Sled” by some pilots who flew it, the Blackbird was a long-range, high-altitude, Mach 3+ strategic reconnaissance aircraft. Shul, a legendary Sled Driver, is a true example of courage under adverse conditions.

Born in 1948 at the Quantico US Marine Corps base in Virginia, USA, Shul obtained a Bachelors in History in 1970 before joining the US Air Force in that same year. Later, he served as a Foreign Air Advisor in the Vietnam conflict.

While flying covert ops toward the end of the war, Shul was shot down while flying his AT-28D aircraft near the Cambodian border. He survived a horrendous crash landing in the jungle, but was trapped inside a fiery cockpit. With no visibility through a melting helmet visor, he managed to free himself and crawl from the flaming wreckage – all while severely burned. A Special Operations Para rescue team extracted Shul by helicopter from hostile territory and evacuated him to a military hospital where he was not expected to survive.

After two months of intensive care, Shul was repatriated and continued his recovery journey at the Institute of Surgical Research in Texas. Although he was told he would never fly again, one year and 15 surgeries later, Shul beat the odds.

Determined, he began physical therapy and astonished the military world by overcoming his traumatic injuries; he passed every flight physical demanded of him and once released, flew fighter jets for the next 10 years. He eventually applied to pilot the super-secret SR-71 Blackbird, requiring an astronaut physical just to apply. He passed with no waivers.

With a titanium pin in his finger and nerves of steel, Shul became part of an elite group of pilots, also known as Sled Drivers, skilled enough to fly the famed spy plane. He united man and machine at the edge of space, rocketing around the world at sonic speeds on stealth missions with unyielding precision and unrivalled performance in the face of 1,000-degree heat.

BALL Watch Engineer Hydrocarbon AeroGMT Sled Driver Limited Edition

The AeroGMT Sled Driver pays homage to Brian Shul and his determination to persevere. The dial has been emblazoned with the SR-71 planform at 6 o’clock, the legend “SLED DRIVER” above the planform, and Major Brian Shul’s signature just below center dial. Moreover, the case back is engraved with the Mach 3+ insignia emblem, worn by all qualified SR-71 Blackbird crewmembers.

BALL Watch Engineer Hydrocarbon AeroGMT Sled Driver Limited Edition

The Engineer Hydrocarbon AeroGMT Sled Driver is equipped with triple function displays — Standard time zone, GMT time zone, and a scratch-resistant, sapphire-coated bidirectional 24-hour rotating bezel that serves as a third time-zone. A pilot or frequent traveler can use the GMT hand to track home city time, the 24-hour bezel to track destination city time, and the standard hour and minute hands to set the aircraft’s local time.

BALL Watch Engineer Hydrocarbon AeroGMT Sled Driver Limited Edition

Advancing BALL Watch’s reputation for resilient watches, the AeroGMT Sled Driver absorbs impacts up to 7,500Gs, and carries an anti-magnetic resistance of 4,800 A/m. The robust 42mm stainless steel case is water resistant to 100 meters and sealed by BALL’s patented crown-protection system.

BALL Watch Engineer Hydrocarbon AeroGMT Sled Driver Limited Edition

The aviator-inspired black dial features hour indexes and main hands of yellow H3 gas tubes. The 3, 6 and 9 o’clock markers have double gas tubes while the 12 o’clock index boasts a pair of vivid orange gas tubes. The second time zone blue GMT hand offers a green gas tube in homage to BALL’s corporate color and the bezel comes in a black and blue combination.

BALL Watch Engineer Hydrocarbon AeroGMT Sled Driver Limited Edition

The timepiece is equipped with a Swiss-made BALL RR1201-C automatic mechanical movement—certified by the Official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC).

BALL Watch Engineer Hydrocarbon AeroGMT Sled Driver Limited Edition

The Engineer Hydrocarbon Aero GMT Sled Driver comes with a patented (extendable) BALL triple-folding buckle or an alternative rubber strap, both customized to fit over a pilot’s aviation apparel as a handsome accessory in form and function.

This special edition is a limited edition consisting of 1,990 pieces – a nod to the year 1990 when four National Aeronautic Association and three Fédération Aéronautique Internationale speed records were established on the final flight of the SR-71 Blackbird in USAF service.

BALL Watch Engineer Hydrocarbon DeepQUEST Ceramic

First launched in 2011, the Ball Watch Engineer Hydrocarbon DeepQUEST is a professional-grade deep-diving instrument.

Undeniably tough and equipped with the necessary diving features, the watch has been subtly redesigned to meet new standards. The new generation model in titanium features BALL’s patented automatic helium release valve directly integrated into the crown, while its ultra-tough monobloc titanium case remains untouched and unrivalled.

BALL Watch Engineer Hydrocarbon DeepQUEST Ceramic diving watch with black dial and black bezel

The case is made of a single block of solid titanium to reduce potential interfaces and thus effects of water pressure. Titanium not only offers extreme corrosion resistance in water, but also outstanding everyday durability and strength, capable of withstanding and absorbing intense impact.

BALL Watch Engineer Hydrocarbon DeepQUEST Ceramic diving watch with black dial and green bezel

The Engineer Hydrocarbon DeepQUEST is water resistant up to 1000m/3300ft. The strong crown seals have contributed to avoid any entry of water when it is maintained in the screwed-in position. And in order to safely eliminate the pressure from the watch on the way back to the surface and avoid any damage, a patented automatic helium release valve has been incorporated directly into the crown.

The generously proportioned titanium case as well as the wide dial opening and its streamlined design also enable immediate and clear reading of the timepiece’s indications, another essential feature of any diving watch.

BALL Watch Engineer Hydrocarbon DeepQUEST Ceramic diving watch with green bezel and green dial

The markings on the rotating bezel allow the diver to accurately monitor the immersion time as well as decompression stops. The bezel has been designed to be easily gripped even with gloves on and its unidirectional rotation is an additional source of safety in the event of its accidental movement while in the water.

For the first time in ceramic, it is available in black or in dark green. Virtually scratchproof, the ceramic can withstand daily knocks and the harshest conditions, while its resistance to ultra-violet rays ensures long lasting color.

To allow instant and reliable visibility in every situation, the dial and the hands feature wider H₃ gas tubes in green and yellow colors, some of the brightest tones that glow in the dark.

BALL Watch Engineer Hydrocarbon DeepQUEST Ceramic

The tapered stainless steel and titanium bracelet, with the BALL patented folding buckle and extension system, means the watch can be easily and safely worn on the wrist even over a diving suit. The Engineer Hydrocarbon DeepQUEST has a guaranteed shock resistance of up to 7,500Gs and an antimagnetic endurance of an intensity of up to 4,800A/m.

The 42mm diameter case houses an automatic chronometer certified caliber BALL RR1101-C. The Ball Watch Engineer Hydrocarbon DeepQUEST displays hours, minutes, sweep seconds and date.

BALL Watch Engineer Master II Doolittle Raiders

This special edition collection from BALL Watch Company celebrates the 80th anniversary of a significant WWII event known as the Doolittle Raid (also called the Tokyo Raid).

BALL Watch Engineer Master II Doolittle Raiders 40mm
BALL Watch Engineer Master II Doolittle Raiders 40mm

On April 18, 1942, 80 men on 16 B-25 bombers took off from the U.S. Navy aircraft carrier Hornet to carry out a crucial secret mission. The attack at Pearl Harbor on December 6, 1941, rushed the United States to enter WWII and forced them to brave impossible challenges in order to boost American morale.

President Roosevelt engaged his military leaders to strike Japan, proving to the Empire that they were not invincible. However, reaching Japanese territory itself would be extremely difficult. To plan this arduous mission, Lieutenant Colonel Jimmy Doolittle was brought onboard and led a squadron of Army bombers on an impossible one-way mission.

In order to take off from the Hornet and reach Japan, the B-25 planes needed a massive transformation to become lighter and to increase their range. They had to fly without fire escorts and would not have enough fuel to make it back to the Hornet. Instead, they would have to race to safety in China after completing their mission. Doolittle recruited volunteers for this special operation.

Once briefed about the extremely difficult task they would have to face, none of the men backed out. All 16 B-25 bombers reached Japan. Thirteen planes made it to China, but three men died during bail-outs or crash landings. One plane landed in Russia where its crew was held captive for a year. Eight men were captured by the Japanese, three were executed, and one died in captivity.

While Doolittle thought his mission was a failure, the raid bolstered the American spirit. After months of defeat, hope emerged. Doolittle was promoted to Brigadier General and was awarded the Medal of Honor. The other 79 members of the raid received the Distinguished Flying Cross. The bravery of these men was beyond imagination and created inspiration for generations to come.

April 18, 2022, marked the 80th anniversary of the Doolittle Raid. To honor the flawless courage of the 80 raiders who took part in this incredible mission, BALL Watch has created the Engineer Master II Doolittle Raiders series.

BALL Watch Engineer Master II Doolittle Raiders 40mm
BALL Watch Engineer Master II Doolittle Raiders 40mm

This limited series includes two automatic models (40 and 45mm) and one manual timepiece (46mm).

All three models are adorned with the Doolittle Raiders emblem and the Naval Aviator Wings. The limited-edition number is proudly painted on the dial while the rest of the design is fine-tuned, containing only sober elements which allow focus on time-reading.

BALL Watch Engineer Master II Doolittle Raiders 45mm

To ensure round the clock visibility, BALL Watch Company provided the Engineer Master II Doolittle Raiders series’ indexes and hands with H₃ micro gas tubes.

BALL Watch Engineer Master II Doolittle Raiders 45mm lume

This Swiss state-of-the-art technology makes the piece highly visible even in total darkness. The H₃ micro gas tubes do not require any external source of power and glow for up to 25 years. They are also brighter than luminous paint commonly used in the watch industry. The wide tubes used for the indexes are bright green and orange at 12 o’clock, and the ones on the hands shine yellow.

The automatic 40 and 45mm versions feature an automatic movement with hour, minute and sweep seconds, as well as a date window at 3 o’clock.

The manual movement offered on the 46mm runs the hour and minute hands along with the second hand on a sub dial. The addition of a mu-metal shield brings the anti-magnetism of the 40mm watch to 80,000A/m or 1,000 Gauss.

Latest editions of ArtyA’s Son of Gears are the ArtyA Star Crystal Blue Editions, featuring a full crystal case perfectly transparent in order to maximize the see trough effect of the exclusive and patented ArtyA Star skeletonized movement.

ArtyA Star Crystal Blue Yas & Full Blue Editions

The Lab-created synthetic sapphire case is incredibly scratch proof because of the remarkable hardness: 9 on the Moh’s scale (approximate 1800 Vickers). Sapphire is the third hardest mineral, after diamond and moissanite.

ArtyA Star Crystal Blue Yas & Full Blue Editions

The ArtyA Star watch is equipped with a manual-winding mechanical skeleton caliber. ArtyA offers here 2 versions of this movement: A deep blue movement with a Yas Blue star for the ArtyA Yas Blue Star Crystal, and an entirely blue movement for the ArtyA Full Blue Star Crystal.

ArtyA Gold Purity Tourbillon

This ArtyA Complication watch comes with a fully 18k gold case with the exclusive Double Barrel Manufacture Flying Tourbillon movement. This magnificent mechanism was created in collaboration with Franck Orny.

As an expression of ArtyA’s horological grammar, the Purity Tourbillon displays a technical inventiveness that combines a maverick style with visual clarity. A beautifully balanced architectural ensemble, the manually wound caliber features an over-sized flying tourbillon with a diameter of 17 mm which is at least 50% larger than most existing tourbillons.

Since the ArtyA Purity tourbillon beats at a rate of 4 HZ, extraordinary accuracy and greater stability are achieved through a much higher frequency than many other high-end Swiss tourbillons (usually 2 or 3HZ).

ArtyA Gold Purity Tourbillon watch

The two barrels connected in parallel provide a power-reserve of 70 hours. The movement operates the central hour and minute hands while the indication of the seconds is elegantly displayed on the flying tourbillon that rotates 360 degrees in 60 seconds.

Mounting the barrels in parallel reduces the thickness of the spring for more stable torque. But also improves the delta of the barrel spring curve, with an ideal ratio between power reserve, performance and regularity.

ArtyA has chosen to manufacture this timepiece with a free-sprung balance with variable inertia. This type of balance wheel represents the ultimate in innovation. It guarantees greater reliability when subjected to shocks and during movement assembly or disassembly, hence better chronometric results over time.

Each part of the movement is delicately beveled and polished by hand for an extreme skeletonizing.

The skeletonized bridges were subjected to intensive and complete validation tests to optimize their resistance capacities.

ArtyA Diver Spritz

ArtyA presents Diver Spritz, the world’s first full orange sapphire recreational diving watch.

With this first colored piece intended for recreational scuba diving, ArtyA wished to perpetuate its tradition of uniqueness and originality to its expertise in sapphire crystal.

This watch has a Lab-created synthetic orange sapphire case. With transparency and sensational reflections, it is a colorful and luminous case to be admired on the seabed. With its guaranteed 50 meters of waterproofness, it becomes legitimately the world’s first orange colored sapphire crystal dive watch.

The case is incredibly scratch proof because of the remarkable hardness of sapphires – 9 on the Moh’s scale, the hardest mineral, after diamond.

ArtyA Diver Spritz diving watch with orange sapphire crystal

The crystallization process for making colored sapphire is very slow. Generally, it takes 40 days to have a small orange sapphire bar of only 20 kg made. The orange sapphire is commonly used for high-tech laser or military equipment, only a few very powerful companies with large investments produce it.

Beating inside the watch, the exclusive ArtyA movement uses various finishing treatments such as Rose Gold, NAC and Côte de Genève in order to maximize the beauty when the light is reflected on it.

Limited to two pieces, the ArtyA full orange sapphire diving watch is available with an aventurine dial.

Junghans FORM New Models

German watch brand Junghans now combines the design principles of simple modernity with references to their own home and harmonious color accents: the new models in the FORM line.

Junghans FORM New Models 2022

The three timepieces – one FORM A and two FORM ladies – speak a strictly modern design language. The hands, hour markers and the Junghans logo on the six o’clock position are arranged symmetrically and determine the clear design of the matte dial. Its bowl-shaped curvature lends the reduced watch design an exciting three dimensionality.

Convey stylishly and with character at the same time the two models with a natural brown leather strap the wonderfully comfortable feeling of the modern Chalet style on the wrist. A pin with Junghans star on the strap of the FORM A additionally emphasizes this. The hour markers on the dark blue dial match the brown tone of the leather up and ensure an equally harmonious as stylish design.

The second variant presents itself progressively new FORM Ladies: Black polished stainless steel, vibrant color nuances in rosé and a vegan microfiber strap.

While an automatic movement displays the time in the FORM A, with of the FORM ladies enjoy the advantages of a quartz movement.

With a flat sapphire crystal date display and a water resistance of up to 5 bar, all FORM models are equipped with a high everyday practical value – in the spirit of German industrial design.

Louis Moinet Super Moon Limited Edition

Drawing inspiration from a rare lunar phenomenon known as Super Moon, independent Swiss luxury watch brand Louis Moinet has launched a limited edition collection.

Louis Moinet’s Super Moon watch combines the visionary talent of the inventor of the chronograph and high frequency with contemporary architectural work. It is a limited edition of 100 pieces.

A Super Moon is a full or new moon corresponding to the moment when the orbit of this satellite is closest (perigee) to Earth.

The dial depicts the first extra-terrestrial view of the Moon, as provided by Apollo 8 in 1968. The engraving results from hand-crafted hammering creating pleasing contrasts on the lunar surface. The finish features two light and dark tones resulting from light brushing performed after nickel-plating the dial.

Louis Moinet Super Moon Limited Edition

It has an opening between 8 o’clock and 12 o’clock, revealing each beat of its exclusive calibre including the escapement operating at a rate of 28,800 vibrations/hour, as well as the off-centre seconds hand.

With this exclusive watch, Louis Moinet offers exclusive real fragments of the Moon. This is an extremely rare and precious material, as only 371 lunar meteorites are known to exist worldwide. This meteorite travelled more than 400,000 kilometres through intersidereal space before being captured by Earth’s gravity and landing in the Dhofar Desert in Oman.

The Lunar meteorite has now been transformed into an objet d’art, sculpted by the expert hands of Daniel Haas and suspended above the void, protected by an anodised aluminium capsule with a shiny black base to strike a contrast with the night star.

Each hour-marker features three variously shaped facets designed to make the light dance over them. The flank features a diamond and satin-finished part to endow the dial with a deep radiance. The colour contrast is accentuated by its black PVD base and the lacquer in its centre.

The real accomplishment was to keep them suspended above the void, with the clear intention of creating a strong perspective. This virtuoso craftsmanship enables them to be linked to a central ring and to the inner bezel ring.

Louis Moinet Super Moon Limited Edition

The finishing of the movement is based on the noble traditions of fine watchmaking: Côtes de Genève, diamond-polished chamfers, circular satin-finished wheels, circular graining. The sapphire caseback reveals the movements of the rotor mounted on ball bearings. The Clous de Parismotif dear to Louis Moinet in the 19th century has been reinterpreted in a concentric version, giving an impression of movement.

Louis Moinet Super Moon Limited Edition

The Mars Mission case has been christened Neo, as its novel technical solutions have created a silhouette that is unprecedented in watchmaking. Everything is built around two vertical bridges that cross the piece to accommodate the strap at each end of their openworked lugs. These bridges enclose the movement container, which is dominated by the six-screw bezel, one of Louis Moinet’s trademarks.

Its alligator leather strap is secured by a folding clasp adorned with the curved Fleur de Lys, the symbol of Louis Moinet.

H. MOSER & CIE. × UNDEFEATED Streamliner Chronograph Limited Edition

H. Moser & Cie. has launched a special edition Streamliner Chronograph in collaboration with globally recognized sportswear brand UNDEFEATED.

The Streamliner Chronograph UNDEFEATED is a sport-inspired model built around the themes of victory and virtue. It also gives a nod to the street culture brand’s mantra: “Play Dirty”. Its fluid lines are fortified by a bold design that spotlights minimalism and legibility.

H. MOSER & CIE. × UNDEFEATED Streamliner Chronograph Limited Edition

UNDEFEATED was founded in 2002 by James Bond and Eddie Cruz, opening its first curated apparel and sneaker boutique of its kind in Los Angeles, on the legendary La Brea Avenue. Now with 28 boutiques throughout the world, UNDEFEATED has since become one of the most influential brands of its generation.

From its inception, UNDEFEATED has built one of the most iconic collaboration portfolios, partnering with artists and brands to create highly sought-after limited editions in fields as diverse as mainstream basketball and luxury cars.

H. MOSER & CIE. × UNDEFEATED Streamliner Chronograph Limited Edition

Displaying an exquisite fluidity in its geometric curves and dynamic forms, the Streamliner has become a model par excellence. For the first time, it features an anthracite grey DLC coating on its cushion case and integrated bracelet links.

H. MOSER & CIE. × UNDEFEATED Streamliner Chronograph Limited Edition

This timepiece is paired with a Black Tiger Camo fumé dial. This motif – a favourite of UNDEFEATED – is engraved on the dial then given several coats of lacquer to create the colour. The finish is then applied to the lacquer to obtain H. Moser & Cie.’s signature fumé effect.

H. MOSER & CIE. × UNDEFEATED Streamliner Chronograph Limited Edition

The H. Moser & Cie. Streamliner Chronograph UNDEFEATED fuses perfect proportions, fluid forms and high-end finishes. As with all models in the Streamliner collection, this chronograph has perfectly rounded curves, evoking the very first high-speed trains from the Twenties and Thirties whose name it adopts. Around the edge of the dial, the grey outer minute track measures the seconds, while the inner minute track – also in grey – counts the minutes.

H. MOSER & CIE. × UNDEFEATED Streamliner Chronograph Limited Edition

At 12 o’clock, the black rhodium-plated steel UNDEFEATED logo provides the perfect counterpoint to the three applique numerals. Just below this sits the H. Moser & Cie. signature in a discreet light grey. The hands that precisely measure the elapsed time have a thicker base and an extremely fine tip, like those found on the counters in a car or a measuring instrument. UNDEFEATED and the manufacture have chosen three-dimensional curved hands to indicate the hours and minutes, formed of two sections and featuring inserts made from anthracite grey Globolight®, an innovative ceramic-based material which contains Super-LumiNova®.

The Streamliner Chronograph UNDEFEATED is equipped with a calibre developed jointly by AGENHOR and H. Moser & Cie.’s teams. Despite its extremely sophisticated design, the movement is built around simplicity, legibility and minimalism, and features a practical and ergonomic central time display.

H. MOSER & CIE. × UNDEFEATED Streamliner Chronograph Limited Edition

The watch is water-resistant to 12 ATM in passive and dynamic modes. Beautifully understated and highly readable, the Streamliner Chronograph UNDEFEATED is a limited edition of 76 pieces. It will be available from June 22nd from UNDEFEATED.com and from the H. Moser & Cie. e-commerce platform.

H. MOSER & CIE. × UNDEFEATED Streamliner Chronograph Limited Edition

Alongside the watches, the two brands have created a capsule collection which includes an H. Moser & Cie. wall clock, as well as a friends & family jacket developed exclusively by UNDEFEATED.

H. Moser & Cie. Endeavour Concept Minute Repeater Tourbillon Aqua Blue

With the Endeavour Concept Minute Repeater Tourbillon Aqua Blue, H. Moser & Cie. presents one of the most traditional and romantic watch complications and combines it with a magnificent flying tourbillon.

H. Moser & Cie. Endeavour Concept Minute Repeater Tourbillon Aqua Blue

Drawing attention to the minute repeater mechanism, it has taken the bold decision to position the two shaped gongs and the hammers on the dial side, in a brand-new design. This involved overcoming many technical challenges. In particular, the chimes had to be curved so as not to interfere with the flying tourbillon and keep the design understated.

H. Moser & Cie. Endeavour Concept Minute Repeater Tourbillon Aqua Blue

The H. Moser & Cie. Endeavour Concept Minute Repeater Tourbillon Aqua Blue watch features a 40 mm diameter case in red gold or titanium. This specially designed case architecture optimizes the sound and achieves the perfect balance between volume, resonance and harmony. The case middle has been widened to the maximum in order to accommodate the movement while allowing enough space to create a soundbox.

H. Moser & Cie. Endeavour Concept Minute Repeater Tourbillon Aqua Blue red gold model

This amplifies the chiming of hours, quarter-hours and minutes by two gongs, onto which fall two hammers that are raised based on information provided by different feeler-spindles.

H. Moser & Cie. Endeavour Concept Minute Repeater Tourbillon Aqua Blue

The Endeavour Concept Minute Repeater Tourbillon Aqua Blue has been designed to retain classic, perfectly balanced dimensions and proportions.

At six o’clock, the one-minute flying tourbillon is visible behind a skeletonised bridge. Boldly contemporary, the tourbillon appears to float weightlessly above the “Grand Feu” enamel dial.

H. Moser & Cie. Endeavour Concept Minute Repeater Tourbillon Aqua Blue titanium model

Starting with a pattern engrained onto a gold base, as if hammered, four different colour pigments are washed, finely crushed, then applied to create an ombré effect. It took approximately one hour of careful work for the master enameller to painstakingly apply the pigments, adding them one by one so that the colours oxidise and meld together when heated in the furnace, without any pixellation. A translucent “Grand Feu” enamel dial must be fired twelve times in total to create the signature H. Moser & Cie. fumé effect.

H. Moser & Cie. Endeavour Concept Minute Repeater Tourbillon Aqua Blue

Each dial is unique and has a particularly striking texture and an intense Aqua Blue hue. The watch dial comes with no logo or indices. The magnificent HMC 904 hand-wound calibre can be admired through the sapphire crystal case back.

H. Moser & Cie. Pioneer Cylindrical Tourbillon Skeleton

With this new skeleton watch, Schaffhausen-based Manufacture H. Moser & Cie. has taken a new approach to its cylindrical tourbillon movement.

Made of stainless steel, the Pioneer case measures 42.8 mm diameter. Fitted with sapphire crystal glasses on the front and back, the Pioneer Cylindrical Tourbillon Skeleton showcases the magnificent HMC 811 three-dimensional Manufacture calibre.

H. Moser & Cie. Pioneer Cylindrical Tourbillon Skeleton

This large, fully skeletonised movement with a 34 mm diameter incorporates the one-minute flying tourbillon, equipped with a cylindrical hairspring at 6 o’clock. Invented in the 18th century, the cylindrical hairspring rises perpendicularly around the upper stem of the balance spindle.

H. Moser & Cie. Pioneer Cylindrical Tourbillon Skeleton

A frequent feature on marine chronometers at the time, it offers the advantage of developing concentrically. Thanks to the cylindrical hairspring, fitted with two Breguet curves attached at two points, friction on the pivots is reduced and the isochronal properties improved, even more when the hairspring is combined with a tourbillon as is the case here.

H. Moser & Cie. Pioneer Cylindrical Tourbillon Skeleton

The cylindrical hairsprings used with this collection have been manufactured by Precision Engineering AG, H. Moser & Cie.’s sister company. Each cylindrical hairspring is shaped by hand, taking ten times longer to produce than a traditional hairspring.

H. Moser & Cie. Pioneer Cylindrical Tourbillon Skeleton

At 12 o’clock, a small, domed sub-dial reflects the curve of the sapphire crystal and features the company’s signature colour, Funky Blue fumé. The white H. Moser & Cie. logo has a certain subtlety about it, while the indices are much bolder: created using Globolight®, a ceramic-based material containing Super-LumiNova®, these add to the three-dimensional nature of the piece, as do the inserts which top the hour and minute hands, also in Globolight®.

H. Moser & Cie. Pioneer Cylindrical Tourbillon Skeleton

A skeleton model of the new HMC 811 calibre is used here, on both the front and the reverse side, where a large, gold and fully open rotor oscillates. The flying tourbillon twirls gracefully under the domed sapphire crystal.

H. Moser & Cie. Pioneer Cylindrical Tourbillon Skeleton

The Pioneer Cylindrical Tourbillon Skeleton represents an important step for H. Moser & Cie., as it enters the skeleton watch segment and defines its own principles for this type of watchmaking.

H. Moser & Cie. Pioneer Cylindrical Tourbillon Skeleton

The H. Moser & Cie. Pioneer Cylindrical Tourbillon Skeleton model features a black alligator leather strap, but can also be worn with a steel, rubber, textile or kudu leather strap, providing a variety of options. The watch is water-resistant to 12 ATM.
