Airain Type 20 Pink Ribbon Pièce Unique

Airain, the historic watch brand revived by Lebois & Co, presents a unique piece from its Type 20 Re-Edition series to support the Pink Dial Project.

Pink Dial Project is an initiative by Revolution and The Rake who have partnered with Time+Tide, Fratello Watches, The Eye of Jewelry and Loupe. Scheduled to conduct for a week from 25th October 2021, this charity auction will raise money for breast cancer awareness, research and treatment.

Airain Type 20 Pink Ribbon Pièce Unique

The Airain Type 20 Pink Ribbon Pièce Unique features a pink dial and unique pink ribbon case back engraving. This one-of-a-kind manual-winding chronograph watch is based on the Airain Type 20 Re-Edition.

It follows every detail the design and specifications of the original 1950’s Type 20, including a hand-wound column wheel chronograph with flyback function and countdown bezel. Its dial, protected by a domed Hesalite crystal, has the same Arabic numerals as the original timepieces, with two registers at 3 and 9 o’clock that can count to 30 minutes.

Airain Type 20 Pink Ribbon Pièce Unique

The Type 20 Re-Edition is powered by the manual-winding caliber AM1. Rated for 60 hours of power reserve, this mechanical movement developed and made by Manufacture La Joux-Perret S.A. in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland.

Patek Philippe Self-winding World Time Flyback Chronograph Reference 5930P-001

Patek Philippe presents a new World Time Flyback Chronograph model featuring a platinum case, green dial and a matching alligator strap.

Inspired by a one-of-a-kind model from 1940, Reference 5930 combines two functions: a self-winding flyback chronograph and World Time – an iconic complication in the history and collections of the Manufacture. This model was launched in 2016 in a white gold version with a blue dial and matching strap.

Patek Philippe Self-winding World Time Flyback Chronograph Reference 5930P-001

In the new platinum version, the names of the cities are printed in green on the corresponding disk. The green dial center highlights a circular hand-guilloched circular pattern. This color is picked up at 6 o’clock on the snailed 30-minute counter. The applied hour-markers and the faceted Dauphine-type hands in white gold are highlighted by a luminescent coating ensuring good legibility in all circumstances.

The entirely hand-polished platinum case is set with a diamond at 6 o’clock. It features the “wing-type” lugs typical of 1940s-1950s World Time watches.

Patek Philippe Self-winding World Time Flyback Chronograph Reference 5930P-001

As caliber CH 28-520 HU is equipped with a column wheel and the modern disk-type vertical clutch, the central chronograph hand can also be used as a permanent (running) seconds display – thus ensuring minimal wear and tear and without affecting the movement accuracy or power reserve. The 4 o’clock pusher enables instant restarting of a timing operation when the central hand is already performing an operation (“flyback” function) or is being used as a permanent (running) seconds display.

The World Time function simultaneously displays the time in 24 time zones. When changing time zones, an exclusive patented mechanism enables correction of all displays by pressing the 10 o’clock pusher, without affecting the accuracy of the movement.

The new Reference 5930P-001 is worn on a shiny bottle green alligator strap with a platinum fold-over clasp.

Patek Philippe Self-winding Flyback Chronograph with Annual Calendar, Reference 5905/1A-001 (in steel with an integrated bracelet and a sunburst green dial)

Incorporating a self-winding flyback chronograph and a patented annual calendar, Patek Philippe Reference 5905 belongs to the brand’s Complications family.

Launched as a platinum model in 2015, then in rose gold in 2019, Reference 5905 is now available for first time in stainless steel. Fitted with a three-link integrated bracelet, it boasts an elegant and contemporary-styled sunburst olive green dial.

The dial ensures excellent legibility for the additional functions, with a central chronograph hand, a large 60-minute subdial at 6 o’clock and three day/date/month apertures arranged in an arc for instant reading of the Annual Calendar indications. There is also a discreet day/night indicator at 6 o’clock that is useful for ensuring accurate date setting.

The caliber CH 28-520 QA 24H remains faithful to the traditional column wheel for the transmission of chronograph commands. However, instead of a toothed-wheel horizontal clutch, it has a vertical disk-type clutch. This modern technical solution causes almost no wear and tear, and the central chronograph seconds hand can also be used as a permanent (running) seconds display. The patented Annual Calendar automatically takes account of 30- and 31-day months, requiring only one correction per year, on March 1st. This movement is visible through the transparent sapphire caseback.

The polished steel case features a sophisticated construction with a concave bezel and recessed sides. The integrated steel bracelet is inspired by that of the Aquanaut Reference 5167/1A with its contrasting finishes (polished outer links and satin-finish inner links), while subtly distinguished from it by the underside of the bracelet and the edges which are polished, in line with the case. It is equipped with a patented Patek Philippe fold-over clasp secured by four independent catches.

The new Reference 5905/1A-001 is joining existing References 5905P-001 in platinum with a blue dial and 5905R-001 in rose gold with brown dial.

Unveiled on October 8 this year, the Signature Moments project includes a special limited edition (188 pieces) of the Carl F. Bucherer Manero Flyback Signature watch and a superb Caran d’Ache Signature rollerball pen. The watch and the writing instrument are presented together in an innovative travel pouch made from eco-friendly material, which is delivered in a beautifully crafted wooden box.

Carl F. Bucherer X Caran d’Ache Signature Moments Project

The new Carl F. Bucherer Manero Flyback Signature combines technical sophistication, sporty chic design, and the cosmopolitan essence that characterizes the line. With its flyback function – the ability to reset and restart the chronograph timer with a simple touch – it is a stunning example of the brand’s Made of Lucerne horological craftsmanship.

Carl F. Bucherer X Caran d’Ache Signature Moments Project

Its graphite gray chronograph subdials offer a sharp contrast to the silvered dial, whose hour markers recall some of the colors of the pencils that are such an important part of Caran d’Ache’s best-known products. Inside the 43 mm stainless steel case is the CFB 1970 automatic caliber with a power reserve of 42 hours.

Carl F. Bucherer X Caran d’Ache Signature Moments Project

The watch is presented on a stylishly striped beige and graphite gray NATO strap with red highlights, but anyone who wants to be able to make a different style statement or express a different mood in the space of a few seconds will be excited to find a second striped NATO strap – this one in two blue tones – nestled in the travelling pouch with the Caran d’Ache pen.

Both straps are crafted from 100% sustainable materials. The watch is water resistant to 30 m (3 atm).

The Caran d’Ache Signature writing instrument echoes the Manero Flyback’s traditional form; its rhodium- and silver-coated body is adorned with a deep “crown effect” guillochage and decorated with hand-lacquered multicolored triangles that perfectly complement the watch’s face.

A thin red line engraved in the clip is reminiscent of the watch’s hand and the cap features a delicately lacquered graphite grey hexagonal isotype.

The Caran d’Ache Signature rollerball pen is a subtle blend of precious materials that is magnified by the traditional guillochage and lacquering techniques, which are still upheld by Caran d’Ache today. With its streamlined body, this exceptional writing instrument offers easy handling and optimum writing comfort, complete with a touch of timeless elegance.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Self-winding Chronograph 43 mm

Audemars Piguet has released a new Royal Oak Offshore line in 43 mm with 5 models, featuring titanium, 18-carat pink gold or stainless steel case.

This new launch represents the first redesign of the Royal Oak Offshore since the evolution of the 44 mm collection in the early 2000s. While retaining the essence of the Royal Oak Offshore’s original characteristics, the design of the case and dial has evolved to offer optimum aesthetics and ergonomics.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Self-winding Chronograph 43 mm

These models also introduce the Manufacture’s latest integrated flyback chronograph, Calibre 4401, in the Royal Oak Offshore collection. The new Royal Oak Offshore 43 mm is fitted with the Manufacture’s new interchangeable strap system that enables wearers to change straps easily.

The new 43 mm Royal Oak Offshore in titanium, 18-carat pink gold or stainless steel combines the collection’s strong identity with a more ergonomically refined design.

The case presents larger polished chamfers on the edges, while the bezel as well as the screw-locked crown and chronograph push-pieces follow a slight curvature for more visual appeal. To the exception of the all-titanium version, the other four timepieces in the collection feature a ceramic bezel for a powerful two-tone contrast.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Self-winding Chronograph 43 mm

The glare-proofed sapphire crystal curved from 6 to 12 o’clock seamlessly fits the curvature of the bezel and completes the overall design. The Manufacture’s trademark alternation of hand-polished chamfers and satin-brushed finishing adorning the case and bezel furthers the watch’s new aesthetic.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Self-winding Chronograph 43 mm

The new Royal Oak Offshore 43 mm line introduces the Manufacture’s latest in-house integrated chronograph, Calibre 4401, in the Royal Oak Offshore collection. This self-winding chronograph movement is equipped with a column wheel and the flyback function that enables to restart the chronograph without stopping or resetting it first.

Calibre 4401 also features a vertical clutch system that prevents hands from jumping when the chronograph is started or stopped, as well as a patented zero resetting mechanism ensuring that each one of the counter hands is seamlessly reset to zero.

The movement’s dedicated blackened 22-carat pink gold oscillating weight and refined decorations, including “Côtes de Genève,” “traits tirés” and circular graining can be admired through the sapphire caseback.

The caseback also reveals components usually hidden from view such as the column wheel and the so-called “dance” of the chronograph hammers.

With its selfwinding mechanism, 70 hours of power reserve and water resistance to 100 m, Calibre 4401 perfectly complements the Royal Oak Offshore.

The Royal Oak Offshore 43 mm line is fitted with the Manufacture’s new interchangeable strap system. The interchangeability system has been directly integrated into the buckle and case’s studs, in perfect harmony with the case’s aesthetic codes.

The ease and efficiency of the new system will allow clients to change the straps and buckles of their new timepiece themselves with a quick click and release. The double-push system also grants optimum security when the watch is worn on the wrist. In addition, the interchangeable rubber straps in black, blue, grey and brown hues adorning the different models, as well as the AP pin buckle, are endowed with a new design.

The Royal Oak Offshore’s “Méga Tapisserie” pattern adorning the dial, available in shades of black, grey, light brownand blue, has been newly designed to offer enhanced contrast and high-end finishing. The pyramids composing the stamped Tapisserie have been sharpened and connected to one another with a raised criss-cross pattern that adds depth to the dial.

The pyramids’ finishing gives a satin effect in an echo to the case’s bold yet refined aesthetic. Extensive programming and numerous prototypes were necessary to reach the perfect balance of sportiness and elegance.

The chronograph counters have also been rearranged to improve legibility: the minute counter now appears at 9 o’clock, while the hour counter is positioned at 3 o’clock. In addition, the date window has been moved closer to the inner bezel between 4 and 5 o’clock. The small seconds counter is, for its part, at 6 o’clock.

Furthermore, the watch presents the new Royal Oak Offshore logo adorning all new models across the collection. The applied gold AP initials appear without the long-form signature at 12 o’clock.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Self-winding Chronograph 43 mm

The dial also features more assertive gold Royal Oak hands adding to the watch’s powerful identity.

Since it hit the world of fine watches in 1993, the Royal Oak Offshore has offered a platform for innovation, seeing a raft of new materials, case sizes, complications, colours and dial designs.

In 1999, the Manufacture introduced a bolder guilloché pattern – the “Grande Tapisserie” – in the Royal Oak collection. Although produced with the same engine-turning process as for the Royal Oak and Royal Oak Offshore’s original “Petite Tapisserie” pattern, the base of the pyramids composing the “Grande Tapisserie” almost doubled in size, granting the watch a bolder look. The “Grande Tapisserie” soon followed in the Royal Oak Offshore 42 mm line.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Self-winding Chronograph 43 mm

In 2001, the Tapisserie pyramids saw yet another reinterpretation within the Royal Oak Offshore collection with the birth of the “Extra-Grande Tapisserie,” later renamed “Méga Tapisserie.” This time, the more massive pattern is no longer engine-turned, but stamped with powerful presses. This dial design was quickly adopted throughout the collection and became a key feature of the more muscular Royal Oak Offshore in 44 mm, which started to appear in 2010 and has evolved in parallel of the 42 mm line ever since.

Today, the “Méga Tapisserie” undergoes a new evolution with the release of the 43 mm size. Its criss-cross Tapisserie pattern nods to the powerful yet sophisticated aesthetic of the newly designed case.

The new 43 mm Royal Oak Offshore collection presents two models combining a stainless steel case with a bezel, push-pieces and a screw-locked crown, all crafted in black ceramics. To reinforce the two-tone aesthetic, the push-piece guards have been crafted in sandblasted stainless steel.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Self-winding Chronograph 43 mm with stainless steel case, black ceramic bezel and black dial with rhodium-toned counters

The first model plays with the case’s two-tone contrast. It is adorned with a black “Méga Tapisserie” dial enriched with rhodium-toned counters and comes with a black interchangeable rubber strap, as well as a second brown interchangeable calfskin strap.

The second stainless steel model presents a smoked light brown “Méga Tapisserie” dial with black chronograph counters and inner bezel, matched with a light brown interchangeable rubber strap. The watch is complemented with a second black interchangeable rubber strap.

Both models are enhanced by white gold hour-markers, Royal Oak hands with luminescent coating and applied gold AP initials.

The Manufacture introduces two titanium models hand-finished with satin-brushing and polished chamfered. They are offered with dials in shade of blue or grey, both complemented with white gold hour-markers, Royal Oak hands with luminescent coating and applied gold AP initials.

The first model features an all-titanium case with black ceramic push-pieces and screw-locked crown. The blue “Méga Tapisserie” dial and inner bezel are illuminated by rhodium-toned chronograph counters and matched with a blue interchangeable rubber strap. A second black interchangeable rubber strap is included.

The other titanium variant is enriched with a bezel, push-pieces and screw-locked crown in grey ceramics. The grey “Méga Tapisserie” dial is enhanced by blue chronograph counters and a blue inner bezel. The watch is complemented with a grey interchangeable rubber strap and a second blue interchangeable rubber strap.

The last model of the collection brings together an 18-carat pink gold case with a black ceramic bezel, both decorated with satin-brushing and polished chamfers. The contrast extends to the push-pieces and crown. The push-pieces and screw-locked crown are crafted in black ceramics and finished with satin-brushing, while the push-piece guards are in sandblasted 18-carat pink gold.

The bezel is matched with a black “Méga Tapisserie” dial adorned with rhodium-toned chronograph counters, whereas the pink gold hour-markers, Royal Oak hands and applied gold AP initials highlight the case’s two-tone design. The watch comes with a black interchangeable rubber strap as well as a black interchangeable alligator strap.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Self-winding Chronograph 42 mm, new models with “Méga Tapisserie” pattern dial

Audemars Piguet presents two new Royal Oak Offshore Self-winding Chronograph models in 42 mm equipped with the latest integrated flyback chronograph movement, Calibre 4404.

The new models feature titanium or stainless steel case, complemented with a “MégaTapisserie” dial in light blue or khaki hue and a matching interchangeable textured rubber strap. The watch also presents subtle changes in dial design for augmented legibility. These new two references will be exclusively available in Audemars Piguet boutiques around the world.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Self-winding Chronograph 42 mm, new models with Méga Tapisserie pattern dial

The two new Royal Oak Offshore models are powered by a new self-winding integrated chronograph, Calibre 4404, equipped with column wheel and flyback function. Unlike a regular chronograph, the flyback function allows the wearer to stop, reset and start the chronograph in one simple action.

The column wheel works in collaboration with a vertical clutch system. When the chronograph is started or stopped, the hands respond accordingly without any hint of jumping. Furthermore, the push-pieces feel smooth when pressed. A patented zero resetting mechanism ensures that each one of the counter hands instantaneously resets to zero.

The watch’s sapphire caseback reveals the movement’s column wheel chronograph mechanism, the 22-carat pink gold oscillating weight featuring the embossed AP initials, as well as refined hand-finishing, including “Côtes de Genève,” satin-brushing and polished chamfers.

The two new Royal Oak Offshore Self-winding Chronographs are complemented with the Manufacture’s new interchangeable strap system. The interchangeability has been directly integrated into the buckle and case’s studs, in perfect harmony with the case’s aesthetic codes.

The ease and efficiency will allow clients to change the straps and buckles of their new timepiece themselves with a quick click and release. The double-push system grants optimum security when the watch is worn on the wrist.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Self-winding Chronograph 42 mm, new models with Méga Tapisserie pattern dial

The two models are fitted on an interchangeable textured rubber strap in light blue or khaki shade echoing the respective dial colour. Both come with a second black interchangeable calfskin leather strap. The 2021interchangeable strap assortment for the 42 mm Royal Oak Offshore collection also includes a dark blue and a black rubber strap.

The new Royal Oak Offshore comes in two case options: one in stainless steel and one in titanium, both sporting a black rubber crown and push-pieces. The two versions have been meticulously hand-finished with the Manufacture’s trademark alternation of satin-brushing and polished chamfers.

The stainless steel model comes with a light blue dial with “Méga Tapisserie” pattern – first introduced in the Royal Oak Offshore collection in 2001 – enhanced with black counters and a black inner bezel. The orange used for the counters’ Arabic numerals and the chronograph’s central seconds hand adds a vivid touch of colour.

The titanium model combines a khaki “Méga Tapisserie” dial and a matching inner bezel, enriched with silver-toned counters with printed black hour-markers, Arabic numerals and chronograph hands. In addition to the new colours, there is novelty in terms of the logo. The AP initials now appear at 3 o’clock without the long-form signature for a more sportive look.

Although the two timepieces have kept the original Royal Oak Offshore’s vertical counter display, the hour and small seconds counters have been inverted to augment legibility: the hour counter is now positioned at 12 o’clock, while the small seconds counter appears at 6 o’clock.

In contrast, the minute counter has remained at 9 o’clock. Moreover, all the counters are now equidistant from the centre of the dial for more visual appeal, while the date window has been topped off with a loupe glass directly integrated into the dial.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Self-winding Chronograph 42 mm (new evolution of the original Royal Oak Offshore from 1993)

Audemars Piguet has launched a new evolution of the original Royal Oak Offshore from 1993 with three references in stainless steel, titanium or 18-carat pink gold.

Although preserving the spirit of the original timepiece, the three 42 mm models are equipped with the Manufacture’s latest self-winding flyback chronograph movement, the new interchangeable strap system and a slightly revised dial design. The sapphire caseback also makes its come back, offering excellent view of the hand-finished integrated automatic chronograph movement.

The new self-winding integrated chronograph calibre 4404 is equipped with column wheel and flyback function, which allows the wearer to stop, reset and start the chronograph in one simple action. The column wheel works in collaboration with a vertical clutch system.

When the chronograph is started or stopped, the hands respond accordingly without any hint of jumping. Furthermore, the push-pieces feel smooth when pressed. A patented zero resetting mechanism ensures that each one of the counter hands instantaneously resets to zero.

This new evolution boasts a glare-proofed sapphire caseback that reveals the inner workings of Calibre 4404. Featuring an exclusive 22-carat pink gold oscillating weight, the movement’s refined hand-finishing includes “Côtes de Genève,” satin-brushing and polished chamfers.

When the reset push-piece is activated, the hammers, driven by an operating lever, hit the chronograph’s heart-piece cams to bring the chronograph wheels and hands back to zero. This stunning choreography can be admired through the transparent case.

The new Royal Oak Offshore is offered in three case versions: stainless steel, titanium and 18-carat pink gold. While Audemars Piguet released a previous model entirely crafted in titanium in 2004 (ref. 25721TI), it is the first time that it presents an evolution of the 1993 timepiece with “Petite Tapisserie”in 18-carat pink gold. The case and bracelet of the three timepieces have all been hand-finished with the Manufacture’s trademark alternation of satin-brushing and polished chamfers.

The stainless steel and pink gold references are complemented with blue rubber push-pieces and crown, as well as a blue rubber gasket sealing the bezel onto the case. In contrast, the titanium timepiece sports a crown, a gasket and push-pieces all crafted in black rubber.

Faithful to the original aesthetics, the three new Royal Oak Offshore models incorporate a “Petite Tapisserie” pattern. The stainless steel variant features the iconic blue dial of the Royal Oak Offshore from 1993, a colour referred to as “Night Blue, Cloud 50” in the Manufacture’s archives.

The titanium version adorns a light grey dial accentuated with black counters and a black inner bezel.

The pink gold reference highlights the “Night Blue, Cloud 50” dial with pink gold-toned counters, echoing the precious case’s colour.

Although the timepieces have kept the original Royal Oak Offshore’s vertical counter display, the hour and small seconds counters have been inverted: the hour counter is now positioned at 12 o’clock, while the small seconds counter appears at 6 o’clock. For its part, the minute counter has remained at 9 o’clock. In addition, all the counters are now equidistant from the centre of the dial for more visual appeal.

In a nod to the original watch, the gold applied AP initials and the transferred “Audemars Piguet” signature are located at 3 o’clock. The date window has also been topped off with a loupe glass integrated into the dial to magnify the date numeral, like in the 1993 timepiece.

These new models are complemented with the Manufacture’s new interchangeable strap system – presented for the first time on metal bracelets. The interchangeability has been directly integrated into the buckle and case’s studs, in perfect harmony with the case’s aesthetic codes.

The ease and efficiency will allow clients to change the bracelets and buckles of their new timepiece themselves with a quick click and release, while the double-push system grants optimum security when the watch is worn on the wrist.

The metal bracelet can be replaced with a rubber strap for a sportier look and lifestyle as the latest 42 mm versions come with a second interchangeable rubber strap – blue for the stainless steel and pink gold versions; black for the titanium piece. Fully waterproofed, the three models can travel underwater to a depth of 100 metres when worn on rubber strap.

The 2021 interchangeable strap assortment for the 42 mm Royal Oak Offshore also includes a light blue and a khaki textured rubber strap, as well as a black calfskin leather strap.

About the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Collection

Introduced in 1993, the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore watch was designed by Emmanuel Gueit. While it retained the Royal Oak’s aesthetic codes with its octagonal bezel and hexagonal screws, the Royal Oak Offshore defied established conventions with its dramatic case size of 42 mm, its massive visible black gasket under the bezel, its rubber-clad crown and push-pieces, as well as its bracelet’s curved links.

Nicknamed “The Beast,” this sturdy and muscular take on the Royal Oak set the trend of large-sized watches. As time passed, the Royal Oak Offshore became a platform for innovation, seeing a raft of new materials, case sizes, complications and colours, while remaining faithful to the timeless design of the original model.

In 1993, the Manufacture engraved the caseback of the first limited series of 100 Royal Oak Offshore pieces with “Royal Oak”. All subsequent pieces were engraved “Royal Oak Offshore.”

In 2013, the original Royal Oak Offshore presented its first major redesign to celebrate the watch’s 20th anniversary. This limited edition of 20 pieces (ref. 26218) was equipped with Calibre 3126/3840, first introduced in the Royal Oak Offshore collection in 2006 (reference 26170).

The watch was also fitted with a sapphire caseback, offering the view of the hand-finished self-winding mechanical movement. This piece also witnessed the exceptional return of the “Petite Tapisserie” pattern which adorned the original Royal Oak and which had last been used in the Royal Oak Offshore collection in 2008.

The Royal Oak Offshore underwent yet another design evolution in 2018 for the collection’s 25th anniversary. As the previous anniversary timepiece, this model featured the original “Petite Tapisserie” pattern, marking its official return in the Royal Oak Offshore core collection.

In another nod to the original timepiece, the 2018 edition boasted a solid caseback engraved with “Royal Oak Offshore.” However, this special edition presented subtle differences in terms of dial aesthetics, notably the rebranded logo from 2012 as well as harmonised typesets across the dial.

The latest evolution released this year evolves this iconic timepiece once more with the Manufacture’s latest integrated chronograph technology, interchangeable strap system and slightly updated dial aesthetics, gearing the timeless Royal Oak Offshore for ever-increasing performance and efficiency.

Its sapphire caseback offers the magnificent view of the integrated chronograph’s column wheel and the dancing action of the chronograph hammers.

Hublot Big Bang Unico Berluti Aluminio Limited Edition

Marking their 5 years of collaboration, Hublot and Berluti present a new Big Bang Unico timepiece in a limited edition run of just 100 pieces.

Hublot’s partnership with the famous men’s fashion house Berluti dates back to 2016. This new understated, elegant, monochrome and timeless piece blends leather and titanium.

Hublot Big Bang Unico Berluti Aluminio Limited Edition

The emblematic patinated Venezia leather is at the heart of the polished titanium bezel as well as on the dial, where the indices and words “Swiss Made” are gauffered directly on the surface.

The leather is held between two pieces of sapphire glass, whose cut reveals the gears of the Unico movement, a feat of technical prowess. Working with Berluti, a technique was developed to encapsulate natural leather hues and crystallize them in time; in this way, their beauty is rendered in an authentic and unchanging manner.

Hublot Big Bang Unico Berluti Aluminio Limited Edition

As for the strap, it symbolizes the perfect fusion of the two worlds and it is available in two versions: one in burnished Aluminio Venezia leather; another in patinated Aluminio Venezia leather with the Scritto motif, exclusively for Japan.

Aluminio is one of Berluti’s signature patinas. It perfectly transcribes the light onto the different tones of the Venezia leather.

Hublot Big Bang Unico Berluti Aluminio Limited Edition

For this model, Hublot took responsibility for the new, two-part bezel design. With the help of a sticky, rigid resin, the first piece of the bezel—in leather, about 1 mm thick—is inserted onto the second piece, in grey titanium, and then screwed onto the case of the watch. This will allow the bezel to be patinated in time, just like the strap.

Hublot Big Bang Unico Berluti Aluminio Limited Edition

To bring the patinated Aluminio Venezia leather into harmony with its mechanical ensemble, Hublot chose titanium for the 44-mm case and its deployant clasp, resin for the central horn, tungsten for the oscillating weight, and satin-finished rhodium for the hands.

Hublot Big Bang Unico Berluti Aluminio Limited Edition

The Big Bang Unico Berluti Aluminio is equipped with the MHUB1280 Unico movement, a manufacture self-winding Flyback chronograph with three full days of power reserve. This calibre can be admired thanks to the cut of the two pieces of sapphire glass that hold the leather on the dial-side. The sapphire crystal caseback also offers the view of this movement.

Hublot Big Bang Unico Berluti Aluminio Limited Edition

The Big Bang Unico Berluti Aluminio will be delivered in a special case with a travel pouch, and a shoehorn key ring with the Berluti logo.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Self-winding Chronograph 43mm

Audemars Piguet has announced the release of a new Royal Oak Offshore line in 43 mm with 5 models honed from stainless steel, 18-carat pink gold or titanium.

This new launch represents the first redesign of the Royal Oak Offshore since the evolution of the 44 mm collection in the early 2000s. While retaining the essence of the Royal Oak Offshore’s original characteristics, the design of the case and dial has evolved to offer optimum aesthetics and ergonomics.

These models also introduce the Manufacture’s latest integrated flyback chronograph, Calibre 4401, in the Royal Oak Offshore collection. Last but not least, the new Royal Oak Offshore 43 mm is fitted with the Manufacture’s new interchangeable strap system that enables wearers to change straps easily.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Self-winding Chronograph 43mm

The new 43 mm Royal Oak Offshore in titanium, stainless steel or 18-carat pink gold combines the collection’s strong identity with a more ergonomically refined design. The case presents larger polished chamfers on the edges, while the bezel as well as the screw-locked crown and chronograph push-pieces follow a slight curvature for more visual appeal.

To the exception of the all-titanium version, the other four timepieces in the collection feature a ceramic bezel for a powerful two-tone contrast. The glare-proofed sapphire crystal curved from 6 to 12 o’clock seamlessly fits the curvature of the bezel and completes the overall design. The Manufacture’s trademark alternation of hand-polished chamfers and satin-brushed finishing adorning the case and bezel furthers the watch’s new aesthetics.

The Royal Oak Offshore’s “Méga Tapisserie” pattern adorning the dial, available in black, grey, taupe and blue hues, has been newly designed to offer enhanced contrast and high-end finishing. The pyramids composing the Tapisserie have been sharpened and connected to one another with a raised cross pattern that adds depth to the dial.

The squares topping off the pyramids have been finished with satin-brushing to match with the case’s bold yet refined aesthetics. Extensive programming and numerous prototypes were necessary to reach the perfect balance of sportiness and elegance.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Self-winding Chronograph 43mm

The chronograph counters have also been rearranged to improve legibility: the minute counter now appears at 9 o’clock, while the hour counter is positioned at 3 o’clock. In addition, the date window has been moved closer to the inner bezel between 4 and 5 o’clock. The small seconds counter is, for its part, at 6 o’clock.

Furthermore, the watch presents the new Royal Oak Offshore logo adorning all new models across the collection. The applied gold AP initials appear without the long-form signature at 12 o’clock.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Self-winding Chronograph 43mm

The dial also features more assertive gold Royal Oak hands adding to the watch’s powerful identity.

The new Royal Oak Offshore 43 mm line introduces the Manufacture’s latest in-house integrated chronograph, Calibre 4401, in the Royal Oak Offshore collection. This self-winding chronograph movement is equipped with a column wheel and the flyback function that enables to restart the chronograph without stopping or resetting it first.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Self-winding Chronograph 43mm

Calibre 4401 also features a vertical clutch system that prevents hands from jumping when the chronograph is started or stopped, as well as a patented zero resetting mechanism ensuring that each one of the counter hands is seamlessly reset to zero.

The movement’s dedicated blackened 22-carat pink gold oscillating weight and refined decorations, including “Côtes de Genève,” “traits tirés” and circular graining can be admired through the sapphire caseback.

With its self-winding mechanism, 70 hours of power reserve and water resistance to 100 m, Calibre 4401 perfectly complements the Royal Oak Offshore.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Self-winding Chronograph 43mm

The Royal Oak Offshore 43 mm line is fitted with the Manufacture’s new interchangeable strap system. The interchangeability system has been directly integrated into the buckle and case’s studs, in perfect harmony with the case’s aesthetic codes.

The ease and efficiency of the new system will allow clients to change the straps and buckles of their new timepiece themselves with a quick click and release. The double-push system also grants optimum security when the watch is worn on the wrist.

In addition, the rubber straps in black, blue, grey and brown hues adorning the different models, as well as the AP pin buckle, are endowed with a new athletic aesthetics.

Two additional interchangeable calfskin straps in beige or brown, as well as a black alligator strap are also available.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Self-winding Flying Tourbillon Chronograph

Audemars Piguet has announced the release of a new complication in the Royal Oak Offshore collection. Limited to 100 pieces, the new self-winding timepiece combines flying tourbillon with flyback chronograph in a brand new case diameter of 43 mm. This new model paves the way for a new generation of redesigned Royal Oak Offshore models.

Although it retains the essence of the Royal Oak Offshore’s original characteristics, the case has evolved to offer optimum ergonomics and aesthetics while the dial reveals the muscular architecture of the new movement hand-finished to the nines. Complemented with the Manufacture’s new interchangeable strap system, this high complication brings together efficiency and technical sophistication.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Self-winding Flying Tourbillon Chronograph

The Royal Oak Offshore limited edition is powered by a new aesthetic interpretation of the Manufacture’s self-winding movement with flying tourbillon and flyback chronograph originally released in the Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet collection. While the flyback function enables to restart the chronograph without stopping or resetting it first, the flying tourbillon making its rotation at 6 o’clock compensates for the effect of gravity.

Adapted to the watch’s new diameter, Calibre 2967 presents a more sportive aesthetics attuned to the collection’s identity. Redesigned, the architectural titanium bridges adorned with black PVD coating incorporate titanium inserts for a two-tone contrast. While the titanium bridges have been finished with satin-brushing and hand-polished angles, the inserts present an alternation of sandblasted and polished surfaces for more visual appeal.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Self-winding Flying Tourbillon Chronograph

In addition, the bridges’ external chamfers have been meticulously polished to remove the black PVD coating to further the contrast of colours and textures. The bridges also reveal part of the multi-layered movement’s two-tone components on both sides of the watch. Similarly, the flying tourbillon cage showcases the rhodium-toned balance wheel pulsating within. In addition to uncovering part of the gear train, the sapphire caseback presents the collection’s open-worked oscillating weight in 22-carat gold coated with black PVD.

With 65 hours of power reserve when not on the wrist and water-resistance to 100 metres, this complicated limited edition is fit for sporty adventures.

This Self-winding Flying Tourbillon Chronograph marks the beginning of a new generation of Royal Oak Offshore in 43 mm that combines the collection’s powerful identity with a more ergonomic design. The timepiece’s titanium case presents larger polished chamfers on the edges, while the bezel and glare-proofed sapphire crystal have been vertically curved for a contemporary touch.

The black ceramics screw-locked crown and chronograph push-pieces also follow a refined curvature, while subtly echoing the movement’s grey and dark hues. The alternation of hand-polished chamfers and sandblasting finishing adorning the case and bezel also provides an impactful contrast.

The titanium sapphire caseback, finished with circular satin-brushing, is engraved with “Royal Oak Offshore Limited Edition of 100 Pieces.”

In place of a traditional dial, the hand-finished architectural and multi-layered movement provides the ultimate backdrop for the dial aesthetics. The two transparent chronograph counters, outlined with a black outer ring, leave the view of the two-tone movement unencumbered.

The movement’s dark hues are also illuminated by more assertive 18-carat white gold hands, a white transferred minute track on the black inner bezel, as well as applied rhodium-toned AP initials realised in galvanic growth, appearing without the long-form signature. Last but not least, the red chronograph hands add a vivid touch of colour.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Self-winding Flying Tourbillon Chronograph

This limited timepiece is fitted with the new interchangeable strap system complementing the latest Royal Oak Offshore models. The interchangeability system has been directly integrated into the case’s studs and buckle.

The ease and efficiency of the new system will allow clients to change the straps and buckles of their new timepiece themselves with a quick click and release. The double-push system also grants optimum security when the watch is worn on the wrist.

The black interchangeable rubber strap adorning this high complication is endowed with a new aesthetics with redesigned grooves forming in the continuity of the studs. The watch also comes with an additional black hand-stitched “large square-scale alligator strap. The AP folding clasp in sandblasted titanium also offers a new ergonomic design.

The Royal Oak Offshore collection also presents an assortment of two elegant calfskin straps in beige or brown fitted with the interchangeable system. More rubber and alligator strap options will be released later this year.

Breguet Type XX Only Watch 2021 Chronograph

Breguet presents a faithful re-edition of its renowned pilot’s watch, produced as a one-of-a-kind piece for Only Watch 2021. Following on from the Type 20 military chronograph put up for sale at the 2019 auction, this new model pays tribute to the civilian editions of the Type XX chronograph from the 1950s and 1960s. It meticulously reproduces the visual and mechanical codes of this emblematic Breguet timepiece.

Breguet Type XX Only Watch 2021 Chronograph

Its 38.30mm diameter case us as per the original, as well as atypical curvature of the horns embellished by a lateral bevel along with some generously-sized pushbuttons .Unlike its military versions, this unique piece comes equipped with a straight crown, as seen in the Type XX civilian-use models.

The bidirectional steel bezel has been given the same attention to precision on this piece, which comes fitted with a 12-hourscale, along with aluminous triangular marker that is strongly inspired by the first generation of civilian Type XX pieces.

This model is also notable for its rather specific dial, the bronze color is a nod to the extremely rare civilian and military models with dials colored in this way that were sold at the time. Following sustained exposure to sunlight or moonlight, black dials may acquire a bronze hue.

Breguet Type XX Only Watch 2021 Chronograph

The Type XX Only Watch 2021chronograph features a small-seconds subdial at nine o’clock and a 30-minute totalizer at three o’clock with an increased diameter, luminous markers and the teardrop-shaped hand that differ from the original military versions.

This watch offers excellent readability in all conditions, while the shape of the hands leads them to be colloquially referred to as “syringes”. Both the hands and the large Arabic numerals are treated with Super-LumiNova®. The Breguet signature is visible at 12o’ clock, as one would expect on a civilian version.

The Type XX Only Watch 2021 comes equipped with a Valjoux 23513-line movement, directly derived from the Valjoux 22214 lines used by Breguet in the 1950s and early 1960s. This hand-wound column wheel chronograph movement has been restored and returned to service by the House of Breguet. In doing so, the Type XX Only Watch 2021 respects the historical functions and proportions of the pieces upon which it is based. Of course, this movement is fitted with the flyback function.

Breguet Type XX Only Watch 2021 Chronograph

As with the original, the Breguet Type XX Only Watch 2021 is fitted with a screwed steel caseback providing water resistance to 30 meters. It also features “Only Watch 2021 Pièce Unique” wording engraved on the case back.

This unique model features a calf skin leather strap with a steel pin buckle, and is presented in an airplane wing-shaped case.

Breguet Type XXI 3815 in Titanium

With its finely fluted case-band that makes it easy to grip, this new timepiece is sporty in style, and functions, reinforced by a water resistance to100 meters, a screw-down crown, and a finish that alternates polished and satin-finished surfaces. The bidirectional bezel, also made of titanium, is fitted with a contrasting black-lacquered 60-minute scale, enhancing the contemporary look of this edition.

Breguet Type XXI 3815 in Titanium

The Type XXI 3815 chronograph has a deep-black dial with a sunburst finish, whose modern character and sporty spirit are accentuated by the use of vivid colors.

Angelus U30 Black Titanium

Independent Swiss luxury watch maker Angelus has released a Black Titanium version of its U30 Tourbillon Rattrapante watch.

Ultra-light and ultra-sporty, the Angelus U30 watch unites a variety of prestigious complications: a tourbillon, flyback and split-second chronograph. The 47mm black DLC titanium case with open-worked edges houses one of the most complex automatic skeletonized movements in the world.

Angelus U30 Black Titanium

This skeletonised, automatic watch with tourbillon, flyback and split-second chronograph with power reserve indicator is quite simply unique. The case, 47mm in diameter and 15mm thick, is made of black DLC titanium.

The lugs and case middle are marked in the centre with a recess that extends the skeletonising of the movement. The open-worked movement has 350 components in total, is treated with black DLC and accentuated in grey.

Angelus U30 Black Titanium

The split-second function allows the central chronograph second hand to be split in two, allowing two events starting together to be timed. At any moment, the same pusher can bring the two hands back together to the same point. A flyback also allows you to reset and restart timing with a single press, without having to stop and reset the hands.

This exceptional feature does not compromise the lines of the U30: the split-second pusher is integrated into the crown at three o’clock, barely protruding from the case. Similarly, the chronograph’s start and reset pushers are very discreet, integrated into the overall line of the U30’s black titanium case middle. The pushers have a short trajectory, requiring up-front design work and adjustment to a degree rarely achieved in watchmaking.

Angelus U30 Black Titanium

It is hard to imagine a complication as sophisticated as the split-second function. The movements capable of achieving this complication can be counted on the fingers of two hands–and for the skeletonised version, far fewer.

Angelus has built its modern identity on open-worked pieces integrated into spacious structures that bring the surface area down to the absolute minimum. Here, the A-150 calibre has depth. The hand fitting, bridges, cog and column wheels, patina and rotor create a rich texture of levels for the eye to get lost in.

Angelus U30 Black Titanium

Chronograph calibres are rarely integrated. They are often made up of a basic calibre and an additional functional module. But Angelus does not subscribe to this approach, instead developing its calibres as a unified system.

Split-second chronographs are often manual. The U30 prefers a sportier, active, technical approach for this extremely rare complication, opting instead for self-winding by a large rotor. Split-second chronographs are hardly ever matched with a flyback. Such a combination is so complex that the watchmaking community is often unaware that it is even possible. The A-150 calibre is capable of such a feat.

Angelus U30 Black Titanium

Few chronographs also have a power reserve indicator. The traditional display layout leaves little room for an additional gauge. Angelus has placed the indicator at half past seven on the dial, using a subtle asymmetric layout. Tourbillon chronographs are anomalies, and tourbillon rattrapantes are even more unique.

But for Angelus, integrating a rotary regulating organ into the dense and intense A-150 calibre has posed no problem. In fact, combining chronometer and chronograph, measuring precision times and short times is a logical choice for the U30.

Angelus U30 Black Titanium

When it comes to the U30’s design, structure, decoration, functionality and complications, all of these choices are based on an almost unparalleled level of expertise and independence. The A-150 calibre has been entirely developed, machined, decorated, assembled, adjusted and fitted on the Angelus manufacturing site in La Chaux-de-Fonds. This exclusive movement has been designed with exceptional mechanical and graphic detail in mind.

Hublot Big Bang Unico Yellow Magic Limited Edition

The new Big Bang Unico Yellow Magic timepiece proudly reflects the innovations and expertise of the Hublot Manufacture in creating bright colour ceramics. A perfect match with Pantone’s trending Illuminating Colours of the Year 2021, this new creation boasts polished Yellow Ceramic case and bezel.

Hublot Big Bang Unico Yellow Magic Limited Edition

Hublot ceramic is available in all colours – red, blue, beige, green and now yellow. Yellow Magic is the name of the new brightly coloured high-tech ceramic created by Hublot which has been predestined since the arrival of its red ceramic in 2018.

Hublot Big Bang Unico Yellow Magic Limited Edition

A unique process, a patented material, entirely developed and produced by the Manufacture’s R&D department and its Metallurgy & Materials laboratory. Four years of development to find the perfect balance of temperature and pressure enabling the ceramic to be sintered without burning the pigments. Hublot has met the challenge of retaining the properties and the colorimetry of the pigments while increasing the wear resistance of this ceramic which is harder than traditional ceramics (1350 HV versus 1200 HV).

Hublot Big Bang Unico Yellow Magic Limited Edition

Available in a limited edition of 250 pieces, this new 42-mm Big Bang Unico watch shines in the light of this yellow ceramic. In an ultra invigorating colour palette, the flange, indexes, minute and seconds counters, Arabic numerals and hands are all in this sunny yellow, to highlight the mechanism of the Unico HUB1280 manufacture movement and its column wheel, visible on the dial side through the sapphire crystal.

Hublot Big Bang Sang Bleu II – Grey, Blue and White Ceramic Limited Editions

Celebrating its successful partnership with London-based tattoo studio Sang Bleu, Swiss luxury watch brand Hublot presents three new Big Bang limited edition watches which explore new territories of colour.

The new Big Bang Sang Bleu II Ceramic watch will now be available in blue, grey and white. Adding to their technical achievement of having successfully created perfectly and evenly coloured ceramic, Hublot unveils a watch architecture that continues to defy tradition.

Hublot Big Bang Sang Bleu II – Grey, Blue and White Ceramic Limited Editions

With its sharp angles, its sculptural case, its multiple facets as if cut in diamond, the Big Bang Sang Bleu II designed by Maxime Plescia Buchi and Hublot has the ability to amaze and astound. Combining the creativity of the tattoo artist with the technical expertise of the Nyon-based manufacture, the piece displays a radical, complex design, which demands a closer look in order to fully appreciate its multidimensional appearance. The case, bezel, case middle, strap and dial have been constructed with their own geometry and, at the same time, they come together with a seamless fluidity.

Hublot Big Bang Sang Bleu II Grey Ceramic Limited Edition

With these new grey, blue and white versions, the Big Bang Sang Bleu II displays a new temperament. In the grey ceramic version, the piece offers a modern look reminiscent of the great urban structures at the heart of 21st-century megapolises. The shades of grey that illumine the ceramic evoke steel, titanium and aluminium in turn, strongly accentuating the profoundly architectural design of the Big Bang Sang Bleu II.

Hublot Big Bang Sang Bleu II Grey Ceramic Limited Edition

The blue ceramic version is a clear nod to the name of the piece – a royal blue, an echo of the term “blue blood” (sang bleu) which is used in historical literature to describe the nobility of a lineage. Between day and night, light and shade, the piece offers the perfect blend of tones, a real technical feat for a material as difficult to master as ceramic, which is always susceptible to tiny variations when it is fired at very high temperatures.

Hublot Big Bang Sang Bleu II Blue Ceramic Limited Edition

Here, as in the grey version, Hublot and Maxime Plescia-Buchi developed an approach where the dominant colour of the piece echoes the white and luminescent indices and hands. The geometric structure of the hands appears in all its complexity, hypnotic as it is, in constant movement, and forming, for a few fleeting moments at midday, a complete work in perfect alignment and symmetry.

Hublot Big Bang Sang Bleu II Blue Ceramic Limited Edition

The third version appears simple yet enigmatic. A mirror image of the All Black version which was released last year, this “All White” version features a dazzling play of light in place of the original shade. The faceted architecture of the bezel, case and strap invites closer inspection to appreciate the subtle angles and curves of the piece – the watch is a powerful creation, a ray of light to be worn on the skin, like the tattoos that Maxime Plescia-Buchi uses in his graphic art.

Hublot Big Bang Sang Bleu II White Ceramic Limited Edition

Each of these new Big Bang Sang Bleu II watches will be available as a limited edition of 200 pieces. They all share a 45-mm case made entirely from high-tech ceramic, housing the UNICO Manufacture self-winding chronograph. Entirely developed in-house by Hublot’s engineers and watchmakers, comprising 330 components and equipped with a flyback function, this model offers a 3-day power reserve.

Hublot Big Bang Sang Bleu II White Ceramic Limited Edition

Each piece is equipped with its corresponding rubber strap, featuring the One Click system which enables it to be changed instantly with no need for any tools.

Frederique Constant Flyback Chronograph Manufacture About Vintage Special Edition

Swiss luxury watch maker Frederique Constant has created a special limited-edition timepiece in collaboration with the vintage-inspired Danish watch brand About Vintage. The new timepiece, 1988 Flyback Chronograph, is available online on About Vintage’s website. It is available in a limited edition of 32 pieces to mark the 32nd anniversary of Frederique Constant.

Frederique Constant Flyback Chronograph Manufacture About Vintage Special Edition

Designed in Denmark and developed in Switzerland, the 1988 Flyback Chronograph is a redesigned version of Frederique Constant’s famous Flyback Chronograph Manufacture.

When Frederique Constant and About Vintage decided to join forces on this new timepiece, it was in fact not the first time for the two watch makers to share visions. Back in 2018 they designed the 1988 Moonphase which became the most exclusive timepiece in About Vintage’s collection. However, this has changed as they welcomed the new 1988 Flyback Chronograph, since this is more exclusive both in limitation, quality and price.

Frederique Constant Flyback Chronograph Manufacture About Vintage Special Edition

Both Frederique Constant and About Vintage share the vision of aiming to create luxury timepieces for the everyday person, and this was the foundation to their new collaboration.

Frederique Constant Flyback Chronograph Manufacture About Vintage Special Edition

The 1988 Flyback Chronograph is a Manufacture timepiece, built with Frederique Constant’s in-house movement, the FC-760 Manufacture caliber. The FC-760 caliber replaces the standard column wheel with a star-shaped wheel. This results in a thinner movement with fewer parts and operations.

Frederique Constant Flyback Chronograph Manufacture About Vintage Special Edition

The FC-760 caliber from Frederique Constant is simpler, smoother and more reliable. It has a 42mm-sized polished, stainless steel case and a dial with date adjustable by crown. The 1988 Flyback Chronograph is limited to only 32 pieces and is sold at a price of €3999.

Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe Chronographe Flyback Green (Ref. 5200-0153-B52A)

The Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe diver’s watch from now appears in a new chronograph version adorned in green from dial to bezel; a shade enhanced by peerless expertise and skills in terms of dial-making.

Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe Chronographe Flyback Green (Ref. 5200-0153-B52A)

Dozens of steps are required to achieve a perfect colour and finish on this particular dial. Once the initial phases devoted to the shape and apertures have been completed, the dial is polished in two stages: the first to remove scratches; and the second to obtain a soft, smooth appearance. This is followed by a series of processes designed to give the surface a special texture, including a sunburst effect that endows the dial with a pattern of lines radiating from the centre. The chronograph counters are then hollowed out and snailed to create greater overall depth.

Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe Chronographe Flyback Green (Ref. 5200-0153-B52A)

The highly technical colouring process can now begin. The dial is coated with several nanometric layers of material. Transformed by the surface, rays of light reflect the desired hue. The dial of the Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe Chronographe Flyback can then reveal its subtle shades of green which change according to the angle of illumination, sometimes taking on metallic shades.

Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe Chronographe Flyback Green (Ref. 5200-0153-B52A)

Powering this diving chronograph is the Manufacture F385 calibre, visible through a sapphire crystal caseback. The self-winding chronograph movement beats at a frequency of 5 Hz, enabling each second to be divided into 1/10th intervals. This high frequency guarantees increased accuracy, particularly when timing events.

Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe Chronographe Flyback Green (Ref. 5200-0153-B52A)

The F385 movement is equipped with a vertical clutch and a chronograph mechanism controlled by a column-wheel. It has a flyback function that enables the chronograph to be reset to zero and restarted instantaneously by simply pressing the push-piece located at 4 o’clock.

Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe Chronographe Flyback Green (Ref. 5200-0153-B52A)

The new Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe Chronograph Flyback comes in a 43.6 mm satin-brushed black ceramic case topped by a rotating bezel featuring a green ceramic insert. It is paired with a NATO or sail canvas strap.

Audemars Piguet Code 11.59 Selfwinding Flying Tourbillon Chronograph

Audemars Piguet welcomes a new Selfwinding Flying Tourbillon Chronograph watch model to its Code 11.59. It is for the first time that Audemars Piguet has taken a daring decision to combine the classicism and prestige of the flying tourbillon with the modernity of the flyback chronograph.

Limited to 50 pieces, this complex watch endowed with contemporary aesthetics and distinct architectural elements brings forward the Manufacture’s progressive approach to traditional craftsmanship. The blue lacquered inner bezel nicely frames the watch’s alternation of open-worked rhodium-toned and black galvanic bridges that confers a unique 3D effect and reveals part of the watch’s beating heart.

Audemars Piguet Code 11.59 Selfwinding Flying Tourbillon Chronograph

This high complication watch unites an 18-carat white gold case with a three-dimensional architectural face design blurring the line between dial and movement. The contrast of rhodium-toned and black galvanic open-worked bridges honed from titanium and nickel silver, brings depth and play of light to the watch. The movement as well as all design elements, which count more than 100 hand-polished angles, are meticulously finished by hand with an alternation of satin-brushing and sandblasting.

Audemars Piguet Code 11.59 Selfwinding Flying Tourbillon ChronographThe transparent chronograph counters at 3 and 9 o’clock reveal part of the complex mechanism, while the impactful flying tourbillon makes its rotation at 6 o’clock. The blued lacquered inner bezel, white gold hands and chronograph rings add a subtle touch of colour, which is enhanced by the watch’s dark blue hand-stitched alligator strap.

The watch’s rhodium-toned open-worked bridges, visible through the sapphire caseback, reveal the complexity of self-winding calibre 2952, which combines the modernity of the flyback chronograph with the prestige of the flying tourbillon.

Audemars Piguet Code 11.59 Selfwinding Flying Tourbillon Chronograph

The complex double curved sapphire crystal, which perfectly integrates the geometry of the watch’s extra-thin bezel, offers a unique perspective on the dial’s contemporary aesthetics and refined hand-finishing.

The sapphire caseback reveals through its satin-brushed and sandblasted openworked bridges part of calibre 2952, the Manufacture’s newest self-winding movement endowed with a flying tourbillon and a flyback chronograph. The open worked rhodium-toned 22-carat pink gold oscillating weight harmoniously matches the color of bridges and case.

Audemars Piguet & Tourbillon Wristwatches

Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet Selfwinding Flying Tourbillon Chronograph continues to uphold the Manufacture’s pioneering development in terms of tourbillon wristwatches. The tourbillon invented by Abraham-Louis Breguet in 1801 was a rare find in pocket watches across the world and almost entirely absent from wristwatches before 1986. To this day, it has remained a symbol of watchmaking excellence and art as only a few watchmakers are trained to perfect this mechanism.

In the early 1980s, Georges Golay, Audemars Piguet’s General Director, challenged Serge Meylan, a young constructor newly arrived in the workshops, to give life to the first self-winding tourbillon in the history of wristwatches – a considerable challenge as the movement had to fit in an ultra-slim 5.3 mm-thick case. Serge successfully met the challenge and this tourbillon is still one of the smallest in the world today with a diameter of 7.2 mm, as well as one of the lightest at just 0.123 grams. Introduced in 1986, this wristwatch forged a new path for the entire high-end watchmaking sector, which renewed ties with this complicated mechanism.

The Manufacture combined the tourbillon and the chronograph for the first time in 1999 in the Jules Audemars Tradition d’Excellence n°1 wristwatch – a limited edition of 20 pieces in platinum uniting tourbillon, chronograph and minute repeater in a movement entirely developed and produced in house. It was followed in 2003 by Audemars Piguet’s first chronograph tourbillon movement, hand-wound calibre 2889, launched in the Royal Oak collection (ref. 25977). Since then, this complicated movement has seen numerous evolutions across the Manufacture’s collections.

The Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet Self-winding Flying Tourbillon Chronograph represents, however, the first time this combination is evolved at Audemars Piguet with a flying tourbillon – a complicated mechanism which the Manufacture first released in 2018 in the Royal Oak Concept collection.

By bringing together the chronograph and the flying tourbillon in its latest Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet collection, the manufacturer continues to move ancestral craftsmanship forward by preserving and reinterpreting traditions. Ahead of its time, this Audemars Piguet watch released in 1986 combines the world’s first self-winding tourbillon wristwatch mechanism with an avant-garde design.

Hublot Big Bang Unico Sang Bleu II All Black Limited Edition

Hublot presents its latest collaborative timepiece created in partnership with Maxime Plescia-Büchi, the Founder of Sang Bleu and Hublot Ambassador.

Hublot Big Bang Unico Sang Bleu II All Black Limited Edition

For this new artistic collaboration, Hublot’s All Black concept has been etched in black ink like a blackout tattoo. Bold and monochromatic, the Big Bang Unico Sang Bleu II All Black showcases the full three-dimensional geometry of the talented grapho typotattoo- genius. Its material – injected with black, polished and satin-finished, angled and faceted – reveals interplay of light and shade in its relief.

Hublot Big Bang Unico Sang Bleu II All Black Limited Edition

Since 2016, the artist has been collaborating with Hublot, designing watches with the same confident strokes as the lines which he marks out on people’s bodies, drawing shapes which are hypnotic and architectural in equal measure. This new interpretation, the Big Bang Unico Sang Bleu II All Black, is completely inked in black – the favourite colour of the watchmaker and the artist.

Hublot Big Bang Unico Sang Bleu II All Black Limited Edition

The “All Black” concept of working with the same black in a tone on tone style, conceived by Hublot in 2006, was a groundbreaking vision set to become an iconic signature: “Invisible visibility”. Perhaps coincidentally, 2006 was also the very year in which Maxime Plescia- Büchi made black ink his signature medium for expression.

Hublot Big Bang Unico Sang Bleu II All Black Limited Edition

In the spirit of blackout tattooing, the abstract geometrical shapes which he would usually draw directly onto the skin are fully black and here cover the body of the watch with a black which is both deep and symbolic. Just as demanding as this fully black ink, requiring even greater precision and skill on the part of the artist, the monochromatic material used here also demands perfection.

Hublot Big Bang Unico Sang Bleu II All Black Limited Edition

On a case measuring 45 mm in diameter, cut from black ceramic and black PVD-coated titanium, the master tattooist alternates and superimposes hexagons, diamonds and triangles, measuring the time from the bezel to the HUB1240 Unico manufacture self-winding chronograph movement, visible under a skeletonised dial and an open case back.

Hublot Big Bang Unico Sang Bleu II All Black Limited Edition

This monochrome watch loses nothing of its dimensional effect, quite the opposite in fact: the play of polygons created by the tattooist is highlighted in the light reflecting directly off the polished and satin-finished material, which is carved and chiselled, angled and faceted.

Hublot Big Bang Camo Yohji Yamamoto Limited Edition

Hublot has created a new Big Bang timepiece in collaboration with Japanese fashion designer Yohji Yamamoto.

An intellectual rebel at heart, designer Yohji Yamamoto has revolutionized fashion and design. Like the monochrome featured on the Big Bang GMT All Black Yohji Yamamoto, Yohji Yamamoto’s iconic textiles and daring approach to motifs set the tone for the Big Bang Camo Yohji Yamamoto.

Hublot Big Bang Camo Yohji Yamamoto Limited Edition

The Big Bang Camo Yohji Yamamoto sports its camouflage motif in a truly original way through a set of outlines, superimposed on the sapphire dial, and vulcanised on the strap – a technology that Hublot introduced to the watchmaking sector for the first time in 2019.

Hublot Big Bang Camo Yohji Yamamoto Limited Edition

The Big Bang Camo Yohji Yamamoto is released as a limited edition of 200 pieces.

Hublot Big Bang Camo Yohji Yamamoto Limited Edition

Its 45 mm case is cut from matt black ceramic and its sapphire dial features superimposed outlines which form biomorphic patches in an echo of the artist’s camouflage motif, with his signature at 6 o’clock.

Hublot Big Bang Camo Yohji Yamamoto Limited Edition

The original construction of the camouflage motif extends onto the strap where each of the constituent shapes of the outline is cut out individually, assembled, and then fused together using the vulcanisation process. This is brand new technology for the watchmaking sector, reinforcing Hublot’s position as the first brand to use vulcanisation in the creation of its straps.

The second strap is a black fabric option. The Big Bang Camo Yohji Yamamoto houses the Unico manufacture movement, with a 72-hour power reserve.
