1. MARINE MACHINE
Breguet gave a new face to its Marine line through a revamped aesthetic style, combining a sense of modernity and dynamism: an original bracelet lug, reworked fluting, as well as a crown surrounded by a wave decor and adorned with a wider “B.” Variations include white gold, rose gold and titanium. The maritime spirit of this self-winding model continues on the back with a singular oscillating weight featuring a design inspired by a ship’s rudder.
2. MECHANICAL HEART
Jaquet Droz’s Grande Seconde timepieces carry the essence of the brand’s watchmaking art. Designs have often varied and, for the first time, we can see a sapphire dial integrated within a skeleton composition. This evocative Grande Seconde Skelet-One marks a true stylistic turning point in the brand’s history, as part of its prestigious 280th anniversary celebrations.
3. SEVEN DECADES OF SEAMASTER
For the 70th anniversary of the Seamaster, Omega has released a pair of limited edition watches that hark back to the model’s early years. A classic style meets modern mechanics with the new Omega Seamaster 1948, launched at this year’s Baselworld.
4. WHAT A STUD
Taking inspiration from Bethan Gray’s furniture and textile designs, this limited edition True Thinline Studs features a shimmering grey marquetry pattern dial, echoing the look of the British designer’s unique creations. Appearing to float above the dial is the contrasting gold coloured Rado logo, which has been metallised directly onto the underside of the sapphire crystal.
5. GREEN WITH ENVY
Audemars Piguet revealed its first pre-SIHH heroes at the Els Club in Dubai during the second Golf Invitational of 2018. Since first launched, the Royal Oak Offshore has always been associated with new materials and the tradition continues with new 44mm chronographs that combine a ceramic bezel, push-pieces and screw-locked crown, Méga-Tapisserie dial and robust rubber straps.
