Cristiano is the most loyal and most prolific Jacob & Co. ambassador. CR7 owns several high complication and high jewelry Jacob & Co. timepieces, including the one-of-a-kind Caviar Tourbillon Tsavorites watch. The soccer legend chose to wear this unique creation when he came to Riyadh to join Al Nassr, Saudi Arabia’s most successful club.

This unique watch is entirely covered in Tsavorites. A total of 224 gems are set on the surface of the 47-mm Caviar case. 130 more are laid out on the dial and a final 18 on the buckle. These 373 gems total up 38.57 ct of tsavorites.

Jacob & Co. Caviar Tourbillon Tsavorites Unique Piece

On the curved and wide Caviar case, the selected tsavorites are laid out adjacent to one another, without the merest gap between them, thanks to the highly skilled work of invisible setting.

Jacob & Co. has applied this unique gem-setting process to the Caviar Tourbillon Tsavorites’ case, lugs, crown, dial and even buckle. One last gem, a 1.2 ct rose-cut tsavorite, has been set inside the crown head.

ArtyA Son of Earth Dome Collection

The Son of Earth collection by Swiss luxury watch brand ArtyA is well known for offering collectors a piece of life and nature at the very heart of its timepieces.

The inaugural series of the new Son of Earth Dome Collection features pieces of art as well as Mother Nature’s first creation, real pieces of rock. The rarest and most noble rocks will be featured in this collection.

ArtyA Son of Earth Dome Collection

For the new series, ArtyA has designed a new curved case with a sapphire crystal dome that ensures unobstructed view of the artistic dial. Its large opening and its globe effect give the impression of contemplating a celestial body. The pure and modern design magnifies the colors and the relief of the natural dial.

ArtyA Son of Earth Dome Collection

This new design was created by Jérémie Arpa, the son of Yvan Arpa, the founder of ArtyA.

ArtyA Earth Dome

The first piece presented is none other than the “Earth Dome”. Crysocholla was chosen to represent the blue planet. This stone, reputed to protect against negative energies and bring inner peace, corresponds perfectly to the values advocated by the Geneva brand.

ArtyA Earth Dome watch

The wearer will feel the energy spread by this rock and will be able to contemplate it from all angles.

ArtyA Mars Dome

The second one is a limited edition art piece linked to Mars. It is a unique, innovative and proprietary process that uses a dome-shaped mould and a special press to shape this dial.

ArtyA Mars Dome watch

After manual engraving and galvanic treatment, it takes almost 10 hours of manual colouring to bring this dial to life. This makes it possible to have a rendering so close to the surface of the red planet.

ArtyA Black Earth Dome

The third and final piece in this first edition is the only one with a dome case with black DLC treatment.

ArtyA Black Earth Dome watch

The contrast created with the colours of the dial brings out the heart of this timepiece, the Crysocholla. This blue crystal has been honoured for a second time because of its positive benefits and energy.

BVLGARI BVLGARI X LISA Limited Edition

BVLGARI presents a special edition watch series created in partnership with LISA, the vocalist from the South Korean girl group BLACKPINK.

Bvlgari Bvlgari X Lisa watch collection

Crafted in steel and rose gold, this watch comes with a BVLGARI BVLGARI engraved bezel and a dial lit up by diamonds. The 14 letters stamped on the bezel, like the emperor’s name on ancient Roman coins, recall the intensely Italian style of Bulgari.

Bvlgari Bvlgari X Lisa Limited Edition watch

LISA personally chose and designed her rendering of her favourite flower, the edelweiss. At the heart of the petals, the singer has drawn her own initial, an “L” recalling her involvement in this project.

This sketch is engraved on the back of the BVLGARI BVLGARI X LISA LIMITED EDITION, alongside the words “Fabriquéen Suisse” (French for “Made in Switzerland”). This beautiful and unique personalization appears on the box as well, accompanied by LISA’s signature.

Bvlgari Bvlgari X Lisa Limited Edition

While the letters BVLGARI BVLGARI are exuberantly displayed on the rose gold bezel, the dial is resolutely minimalist with the touches of green, blue and purple shades. Twelve diamonds mark the hours, swept over by two rose gold hands. The rose gold crown is topped by a cabochon-cut rubellite, one of Bulgari’s aesthetic signatures.

Each BVLGARI BVLGARI X LISA watch is fitted on a delicately polished and satin-finished steel bracelet.

Bvlgari Bvlgari X Lisa Limited Edition watch box

Powered by a quartz movement, the BVLGARI BVLGARI X LISA is issued in limited series of 700 for the 33 mm-diameter version and 300 for the 23 mm-diameter iteration.

Bvlgari Octo Finissimo Ultra 10th Anniversary Limited Edition

Bulgari celebrates 10th anniversary of the Octo series of ultra-thin watches by presenting a limited edition Octo Finissimo Ultra model. This special timepiece is now delivered with an innovative presentation box.

The dial of the Octo Finissimo Ultra that won a prize at the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève (GPHG) 2022 featured a 10 instead of the traditional “12 o’clock” numeral. It was a final nod to the Octo, which was celebrating its 10th anniversary that evening in Geneva.

Bulgari Octo Finissimo Ultra 10th Anniversary Limited Edition

The limited series of 10 timepieces for the 10th anniversary of the Octo with its 10 o’clock engraving is currently being delivered – a record in itself for this construction measuring just 1.80 mm thick and resulting in eight patent applications.

Bulgari has also developed a unique experience associated with the heart of the Octo Finissimo Ultra 10th Anniversary: its presentation box.

Bulgari Octo Finissimo Ultra 10th Anniversary Limited Edition

The presentation box offers a whole new interaction: collectors can place the watch in the box next to a digital screen on which they programme the desired time. A button is then pressed to start the cycle and as soon as the box is closed. Upon opening it some 20 seconds later, the owner will find the watch perfectly set to the desired time and fully wound.

The timepiece can of course still be hand-adjusted by the wearer. Designed for contemporary use, it has passed all required tests: resistance to micro-shocks and to magnetic fields, along with temperature and ageing cycles.

Bulgari Octo Finissimo Ultra 10th Anniversary Limited Edition

By scanning the QR Code engraved on the ratchet of the barrel, each owner will be able to access a personal mini-website that will take them on a journey to discover the art that brought their watch to life, including videos and photos of the construction of their own timepiece, enhanced by sketches and interviews.

Bulgari Octo Finissimo Ultra 10th Anniversary Limited Edition

Each watch is also accompanied by an NFT artwork created under the artistic direction of Fabrizio Buonamassa Stigliani, Product Creation Executive Director at Bulgari Watches. This composition tells the story of his decades-long experience in the world of the Octo and the path that led to the birth of the Octo Finissimo Ultra.

Bulgari Octo Finissimo Ultra 10th Anniversary Limited Edition

The timepiece itself thus becomes the vault of the corresponding NFT work, guaranteed by Bvlgari Singvlarity technology. Thanks to the blockchain, it certifies the indivisible link between a Bulgari creation and its associated NFT work of art, while preserving the authenticity and possession of both the physical and virtual creations.

SEVENFRIDAY Carbon Series

Vulcain × Seconde/Seconde/ × Revolution Cricket Tradition ‘Vulcain Salute’

After successfully reviving the iconic Swiss watch brand Vulcain, Guillaume Laidet has collaborated with Romaric André and Wei Koh (founder of Revolution, The Rake & Grail Watch) to create a special edition collection.

Vulcain × Seconde/Seconde/ × Revolution Cricket Tradition ‘Vulcain Salute’

Guillaume Laidet is a new generation watch entrepreneur credited with reviving Nivada Grenchen and now Vulcain. Meanwhile, Romaric André is better known by his creative sobriquet seconde/seconde/.

Vulcain × Seconde/Seconde/ × Revolution Cricket Tradition ‘Vulcain Salute’

This collaborative timepiece is based on the Vulcan Cricket mechanical alarm watch. Inspired by the Vulcan Salute, a hand-gesture popularized by the Star Trek series, André designed a distinct seconds hand for this timepiece.

Vulcain × Seconde/Seconde/ × Revolution Cricket Tradition ‘Vulcain Salute’

The Vulcan hand is available in the four different colors of the Star Trek uniform — red, blue, gold and green. For the dial of the watches, André selected the black Tradition model with applied indexes.

To offer more variety, the green and gold come in 36mm, while the red and blue are presented in 39mm. For further distinction, gold-toned indexes are used for the smaller case size with the gold and green hands, and steel indexes for the larger size watches with the red and blue hands.

Christopher Ward Dune Collection

Named after Aquitaine’s Dune du Pilat, the tallest sand dune in Europe, this new series spotlights CW’s elegant Light-catcher™ case. It retains the box crystal of 2022’s Aquitaine range, but loses its rotating bezel, delivering a case width of 38mm.

The watches are: the C65 Dune Automatic (available in four colours), C65 Dune GMT (a limited edition of 200) and the C65 Dune Bronze – two colours, and the only chronometer of the trio.

Christopher Ward C65 Dune Automatic watch with white sand dial

Christopher Ward Dune watches share elegance and simplicity with the ruggedness and precision of outdoor field timepieces. They are capable for performing reliably in the toughest of conditions.

Christopher Ward C65 Dune GMT

Made of sapphire, the box-crystal provides a vintage look that recalls sports watches of the 1960s and ’70s. The exhibition case back offers the view of the self-winding movement fitted with elaboré-finished rotor embellished with the twin-flags pattern.

Christopher Ward C65 Dune Bronze

The new C65 Dune Automatic watch boasts a lume-heavy dial. Water-resistant to 150m, the 38mm case in stainless steel houses the Sellita SW200-1 automatic movement.

Christopher Ward C65 Dune Automatic watch with blue dial

The dial comes in four colours: Black Sand, Marine Blue, Beach grass and White Sand. The first three have a polished ‘sunray’ texture, while the White Sand dial boasts a subtle matte finish.

Christopher Ward C65 Dune Automatic watch with white sand dial

The 200-piece limited edition C65 Dune GMT in Black Sand is a field watch designed for travellers and explorers alike.

Christopher Ward C65 Dune GMT

The C65 Dune GMT watch offers two time zones at once. But instead of the traditional outer bezel, it has a raised interior bezel printed with 24-hour numerals.

Christopher Ward C65 Dune GMT watch

By lining it up the fourth ‘GMT’ hand, you can align your watch to your chosen international location. The watch uses Sellita’s SW330-2 GMT movement, which delivers an extended 56-hour power reserve.

Christopher Ward C65 Dune Bronze

The C65 Dune Bronze, the only chronometer in the Dune series, is powered by the Sellita SW200 COSC calibre.

Christopher Ward C65 Dune Bronze

The C65 Dune Bronze is available with a Marine Blue or Beach grass dial and there’s a new bronze bracelet to go with it, too. Only previously offered with the Sandhurst Series 2, this is CW’s first-ever bronze bracelet, complete with micro-adjustable clasp and increased taper.

All three watches in the C65 Dune collection are water-resistant to 150m.

The Dune series was released on 26th January 2023, with prices starting from:
C65 Dune Automatic – £695 | $850 | €895

Cuervo y Sobrinos Historiador Gran Premio de Cuba “1957” Limited Edition

With this limited edition watch series, Cuervo y Sobrinos takes us back to 1957, a time when Cuba hosted the action-packed Cuban Grand Prix.

Limited to 162 pieces, the Cuervo y Sobrinos Historiador Gran Premio de Cuba “1957” chronograph takes inspiration from the historical race, but crafted with modern day specifications.

Cuervo y Sobrinos Historiador Gran Premio de Cuba “1957” Limited Edition

The inaugural Cuban Grand Prix, the Gran Premio de Cuba was held in 1957. In this race, the famous Argentinean driver Juan Manuel Fangio secured victory in his Maserati 300S. The following year, on the eve of the race, antigovernmental revolutionaries kidnapped Fangio, however, the race still went ahead and Stirling Moss was victorious in his Ferrari 335S.

Unfortunately, the 1959 race was cancelled due to political instability, however, it returned for one last time in 1960, when the British driver, Stirling Moss, was once again, triumphant, albeit this time in a Maserati Tipo 61.

Cuervo y Sobrinos honours the Gran Premio de Cuba with a new, limited-edition chronograph bearing the name and date of the legendary race first edition.

Cuervo y Sobrinos Historiador Gran Premio de Cuba “1957” Limited Edition

The vibrant red dial evokes motor racing spirit. The cream hours and minute hands are leaf-shaped, luminescent and plump, while their colour bestows the dial with a bygone charm.

Cuervo y Sobrinos Historiador Gran Premio de Cuba “1957” Limited Edition

The central chronograph seconds hand and counter hands are baton shaped. Two chronograph registers, 30 minutes and 12-hours, once again encompass cream hues, while a small seconds display, positioned at 9 o’clock, is presented in a vivid shade of red.

The bold, cream Arabic numerals offer better clarity. The hour markers are treated with Super-LumiNova, enhancing readability in dim light.

Cuervo y Sobrinos Historiador Gran Premio de Cuba “1957” Limited Edition

The red tones of the central dial area are framed with a cream circlet that serves as a telemeter scale. Beyond the telemeter scale is a black ring, hugging the interior of the case which plays host to a tachymeter. This feature allows the wearer to determine the speed of a vehicle over a known distance.

Cuervo y Sobrinos Historiador Gran Premio de Cuba “1957” Limited Edition

The Cuervo y Sobrinos Historiador Gran Premio de Cuba has a 42mm stainless steel case. The dial sits beneath a double curved sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating. Two piston-style chronograph pushers are positioned on the right flank of the case and the lugs are ergonomically-shaped, optimising wearer comfort.

Cuervo y Sobrinos Historiador Gran Premio de Cuba “1957” Limited Edition

The watch is supplied on a black ‘racing style’ matte leather strap. It features numerous perforations, a detail inspired by the racing gloves of yesteryear. Red stitching and an open-worked CyS-branded clasp are two additional refinements.

Cuervo y Sobrinos Historiador Gran Premio de Cuba “1957” Limited Edition

The case back is adorned with a Gran Premio 1957 de Cuba insignia and the model is limited to just 162 pieces. This latter number was inspired by the 162 mile race distance of the Gran Premio 1957 de Cuba.

Cuervo y Sobrinos Historiador Gran Premio de Cuba “1957” Limited Edition

At the heart of the Historiador Gran Premio de Cuba “1957” sits an automatic Swiss movement, the CyS 8099 calibre. Based on the Valjoux 7753, the movement features an engraved oscillating weight and has a power-reserve of 48 hours.

Zenith DEFY Revival A3690

Swiss luxury watch brand Zenith expands its DEFY Revival series with a re-edition of the historic reference A3690.

First launched in 1970,shortly after the introduction of the DEFY wristwatch collection with its rugged “bank vault” case and daring dial design, the A3690 was among the earliest references to incorporate striking colours. It featured a tropical teal blue dial.

Reproduced in accurate detail using the historical production plans, the Zenith DEFY Revival A3690 watch brings back all the details and singular design elements of its ancestor.

Zenith DEFY Revival A3690

This includes a faceted octagonal case paired with a fourteen-sided bezel, a teal-blue dial with a prominent vignette effect that darkens towards the edges, unusual applied square hour markers feature horizontal grooves, and the now-iconic Gay Frères steel “ladder” bracelet, which has now been updated with a more modern and ergonomic folding clasp.

Zenith DEFY Revival A3690 with ladder bracelet

In fact, the only cosmetic differences between the Revival and the historical reference are the sapphire crystal, the display case back and the type of luminescent pigments.

Zenith DEFY Revival A3690
The original reference was fitted with a solid metal case-back emblazoned with a four-pointed star that became one of the brand’s logos. The Zenith DEFY Revival A3690 features a sapphire display back showing the automatic Elite 670 manufacture movement, operating at a frequency of 4 Hz (28,800 VpH) and providing an autonomy of 50 hours.

Zenith DEFY Revival A3690

The water-resistance of 30ATM (300 metres) has also been maintained from the original, even with the addition of a display back.

The Defy Revival A3690 watch is available now at ZENITH physical and online boutiques around the world.

OMEGA Speedmaster Super Racing

Swiss luxury watch brand OMEGA debuts its latest innovation, the Spirate™ System, with the new Speedmaster Super Racing automatic chronograph.

OMEGA Speedmaster Super Racing

Developed in-house, the Spirate™ System is comprised of an innovative new patent-pending spiral that allows for ultra-fine rate adjustments.

Omega Spirate™ System

Each spiral is made from a silicon wafer, thanks to an internal manufacturing process called DRIE (Deep Reactive Ion Etching). With this mechanism, an impressive precision of 0/+2 seconds a day can be achieved.

It has a totally new Si14 balance spring which allows the watchmaker to act on the stiffness of the hairspring’s attachment point through an eccentric adjustment mechanism located on the balance bridge.

OMEGA Speedmaster Super Racing

Announced this year, the OMEGA Speedmaster Super Racing is the first timepiece to be endowed with the fine-tune Spirate™ System. This 44.25 mm diameter stainless steel watch offers a clear view of the new mechanism through the sapphire crystal caseback.

OMEGA Speedmaster Super Racing case-back

The black dial is encircled with a racing style minute-track and a black ceramic bezel ring with the famous tachymeter scale in new yellow “grand feu” enamel. This bold yellow shade, featured on the OMEGA Seamaster Aqua Terra >15’000 GAUSS of 2013, is also used on the gradient chronograph hand and striped small seconds hand at 9 o’clock.

OMEGA Speedmaster Super Racing dial

The watch’s 60 minute/12 hour recorder, directly opposite at 3 o’clock, also serves as a second time zone. The honeycomb pattern of the dial references a concept timepiece on display at OMEGA Museum which survived extreme magnetic fields of 160,000 GAUSS.

Omega CoAxial 9920 Calibre
Omega CoAxial 9920 Calibre

Powering this revolutionary wristwatch is the self-winding Co-Axial Master Chronometer 9920 calibre, certified by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS). Proof of this certification is provided by a distinctive red METAS card, which in this case includes confirmation of the 0/+2 seconds a day precision made possible by the Spirate™ System.

Omega CoAxial 9920 Calibre

The first movement in the world to feature the patent-pending OMEGA Spirate™ System, the CoAxial 9920 calibre incorporates a self-winding chronograph with column wheel mechanism. Visible through the exhibition case-back, it boasts a rhodium plated finish with Geneva waves in arabesque. The power reserve is approximately 60 hours.

Omega CoAxial 9920 Calibre

The diamond-polished and bevelled black arrowhead indexes are filled with a new and exclusive Super-LumiNova with yellow glow. This colour code extends to the Speedmaster and Super Racing wording on the dial.

OMEGA Speedmaster Super Racing

At 6 o’clock there’s a stylish and regular reminder of the >15’000 GAUSS 10 year anniversary: a “10” in Speedmaster logo font, which appears once a month in the watch’s date window.

OMEGA Speedmaster Super Racing

The new Omega Speedmaster Super Racing comes fitted with a stainless steel bracelet featuring a fold-over butterfly clasp. The brand is also offering an additional NATO strap in recycled nylon with black and yellow stripes, inspired by the distinctive colour code of the Seamaster Aqua Terra >15’000 GAUSS watch.

OMEGA Speedmaster Super Racing Box

Each Speedmaster Super Racing watch will be provided with a honeycomb pattern Speedmaster watch box in black with yellow stitching. The special presentation box includes the recycled nylon NATO strap and a strap changing tool.

The approximate retail price of the OMEGA Speedmaster Super Racing watch is $11,000.

Breitling Navitimer B01 Chronograph 43 Boeing 747 Limited Edition

The new Navitimer Boeing 747 features the AOPA logo at 12 o’clock. The colors on the dial echo the palette found on the original Boeing 747, captured in its cream dial with black subdials and red-and-white slide rule with blue accents. The “Boeing 747” name is subtly integrated into the slide rule’s inner scale. The watch also features an integrated date window at 6 o’clock.

Breitling Navitimer B01 Chronograph 43 Boeing 747 Limited Edition

Corum Bubble 47 Central Tourbillon X Label Noir

Swiss luxury watch brand CORUM has partnered with Label Noir and manufactured a unique timepiece dedicated to the renowned Macau Master of Time Event.

Corum Bubble 47 Central Tourbillon X Label Noir

The CORUM Bubble 47 Central Tourbillon model has been enhanced with the most distinctive features of the Geneva-based customization brand: black, acid green, textured finishes, and grey and matte tones.

Corum Bubble 47 Central Tourbillon X Label Noir

Several versions of the CORUM Bubble 47 Central Tourbillon have already been produced in various materials.

Corum Bubble 47 Central Tourbillon X Label Noir

Label Noir went for a different approach. Very graphic finishes, deceptively minimalist, because the play of nuances is complex, with anthracite and silvery hues, matte finishes, bracelet (matte textured black rubber), case (grade 5 titanium treated with black ADLC), bezel (grade 5 titanium coated with satin black ADLC), right down to the plate.

Corum Bubble 47 Central Tourbillon X Label Noir

A few more dashes of steel enhance the dial pattern, numerals, and display discs and refocus the eyes on the central body, the beating heart, the tourbillon.

Corum Bubble 47 Central Tourbillon X Label Noir

Finally, Label Noir’s signature acid green color is added to the hour-minute indicators, the dual mark, and the strap stitching.

Hublot Big Bang Unico Sorai Limited Edition

Since 2019, Swiss luxury watch brand Hublot has been supporting SORAI, an organisation founded by Hublot ambassador and former international cricket star Kevin Pietersen.

SORAI (Save Our Rhinos Africa India) helps keep rhinos threatened with extinction safe from poachers. This year, the Swiss watchmaker presents a special edition watch to support the activities of this organization.

Hublot Big Bang Unico Sorai Limited Edition

As with the two previous limited editions, part of the proceeds from the sale of the 100 Big Bang Unico SORAI will be donated to the organisation. The colours chosen for the third limited edition are those of sunset, recalling the heightened danger faced by rhinos as night falls.

Sculpted from polished and microblasted rhino-grey ceramic specially developed for this limited edition, the Big Bang Unico SORAI features an open-worked dial featuring the glowing colours of sunset when the sky catches fire. It is at nightfall that poachers swing into action, cloaked in darkness and more difficult to track.

Hublot Big Bang Unico Sorai Limited Edition

The colours of daybreak: yellow, orange, purple and pink represent the hope brought by dawn, of a new day and a chance at change.

Hublot Spirit of Big Bang Black Ceramic Rabbit Limited Edition

Hublot celebrates the Year of the Rabbit with a special edition watch from its Spirit of Big Bang collection. A fusion of traditional Chinese culture with Contemporary Haute Horlogerie, this timepiece has an artistically created dial with a unique painting by Chinese Artist Wen Na.

Hublot Spirit of Big Bang Black Ceramic Rabbit Limited Edition

Coming from China, Wen Na is acclaimed as one of the leading young contemporary Chinese artists for her distinctive artistic style.

Inspired by Hublot’s Art of Fusion brand concept, Wen Na interpreted the twelve Earthly Branches, a symbol from the traditional Chinese calendar, with artistic imagination to depict the distinctive 12 double-hours.

A group of charming rabbits having fun with a lion dance, holding firecrackers or indulging in other activities, mark the wonderful moments of each of the double-hours.

Hublot Spirit of Big Bang Black Ceramic Rabbit Limited Edition

The Year of the Rabbit-themed painting portrays a festive scene on the dial with playful rabbits at different double-hours, thanks to the brand’s exquisite craftsmanship. Each hand-painted dial is unique. The representation of hour markers has adopted an artistic expression that derives from the traditional twelve Earthly Branches.

Hublot Spirit of Big Bang Black Ceramic Rabbit Limited Edition

Dressed in a tonneau-shaped case, this Spirit of Big Bang watch incorporates all the classic design elements of Big Bang watches: the six H-shaped screws on the bezel, the lugs either side of the case, the over-moulded rubber screw-down crown decorated with the iconic H, and the sandwich type construction.

Zenith Defy Revival A3691

ZENITH presents the second model in its collection of faithfully reproduced iconic DEFY timepieces.

The DEFY Revival A3691 is a re-edition of an important 1971 reference. With its vibrant red gradient-effect dial and rugged geometric case, this new model is the first DEFY Revival model in the permanent collection.

Zenith Defy Revival A3691

In 1969, Not only did the Manufacture unveil the venerable El Primero calibre, but it also debuted the DEFY collection of wristwatches.

One of the first models of this DEFY collection was the A3642. About two years later, ZENITH introduced new colourful dials with a marked “vignette” effect that darkens towards the edges, including the A3691 with a deep red dial.

In 2022, the Swiss Manufacture paid tribute to the historic A3642 with the Limited Edition Zenith Defy Revival A3642 watch. Now it presents the re-edition of A3691.

Accurately recreated using the historical production plans, the Zenith DEFY Revival A3691 brings back all the details and singular design elements of its ancestor.

The faceted octagonal case is paired with a fourteen-sided bezel. The deep glossy red dial features a prominent vignette effect that darkens towards the edges. It comes with unusual applied square hour markers with horizontal grooves.

Zenith Defy Revival A3691

The iconic Gay Frères steel “ladder” bracelet has now been updated with a more modern and ergonomic folding clasp.

The only cosmetic differences between the Revival and its progenitor are the sapphire crystal, the display case back and the type of luminescent pigments. The water-resistance of 30ATM (300 metres) has also been maintained from the original, even with the addition of a display back.

The other main difference beats away inside. Instead of the original’s solid case back emblazoned with a four-pointed star that became one of the brand’s logos and recurring design element for years, the DEFY Revival A3691 features a sapphire display back showing the automatic Elite 670 manufacture movement, operating at a frequency of 4 Hz (28,800 VpH) and providing an autonomy of 50 hours.

Zenith Defy Revival A3691

Unlike the DEFY Revival A3642, which was produced as a numbered limited edition, the DEFY Revival A3691 version is joining the permanent DEFY collection and will be available from ZENITH boutiques and authorised retailers around the world.

Hublot Big Bang Tourbillon Automatic Neon Yellow Saxem

Swiss luxury watch brand Hublot continues its exploration of SAXEM – a material often used in satellites and some lasers – allowing the Manufacture to obtain unprecedented translucent colours, of which neon yellow.

SAXEM was developed in the field of satellite technology. This unique material had also been used in 2019 for the Hublot Big Bang MP-11. At the time, the brand had crafted it in emerald green. This time, the manufacture succeeded to generate a brand-new neon yellow colour.

Hublot Big Bang Tourbillon Automatic Neon Yellow Saxem

SAXEM stands for “Sapphire Aluminium oXide and rare Earth Mineral”. It is an alloy of aluminium oxide, the basic component of sapphire, with rare earth elements like thulium and holmium as well as chromium. SAXEM is ultra-resistant and endowed with a brilliance that is greater than that of sapphire.

The absence of tension within the material ensures greater stability in terms of shaping, whereas the cubic crystalline structure guarantees the same shade and intensity of colour, regardless of the angle from which the case is viewed.

The fully polished neon yellow SAXEM offers a bold contrast with the bezel’s six H-shaped screws and with the crown, all in polished and microblasted titanium.

Hublot Big Bang Tourbillon Automatic Neon Yellow Saxem

The Big Bang Tourbillon Automatic Yellow Neon SAXEM is powered by the HUB6035 self-winding Manufacture calibre with a micro-rotor. Hublot has skeletonised the entire movement. Entirely visible and fully laid bare, even its bridges are made from sapphire.

The Big Bang Tourbillon Automatic Yellow Neon SAXEM offers a guaranteed 72-hour power reserve.
