The energy emitted from the watches’ geometric, sleek, solid shapes is reminiscent of the same energy emitted from the pulse of a town, a fantastic private party or a race on the F430 between Dubai and Abu Dhabi. The lines in turn conjure up images of avant-garde buildings, the most prestigious F1 chassis or the fuselage of a jet.

The masculine models are available with automatic movements or quartz according to the preferences.

With a wide range of different versions, the collection explores with unique and sophisticated style. Some of which are set with diamonds, offer combinations where sophistication competes with audacity.

Furthermore, the brand proposes a series of exclusive models in limited edition consisted of models with new functions such the “secret rotating calendar”, the “skeleton manufactured in the valley of joux” or still the “large calendar”.
