1. This headline 40mm model of the new Master Control collection features a newly-developed movement, Calibre 759, which combines a chronograph with a triple calendar display and moon-phase, brought together for the first time to evoke the ancient links between watchmaking and astronomy.
2. Four one-of-a-kind pieces make up the Les Cabinotiers ‘La Musique du Temps’ collection, with each dial an enamelled masterpiece depicting a songbird, offset by the delicate guilloche pattern. This 40mm ‘blue jay’ singing bird piece features a 18k pink gold case, transparent sapphire crystal caseback and alligator strap.
3. Five years after its debut, the Zeitwerk Minute Repeater is now available in a limited 30-watch edition in white gold with a deep-blue dial. It features a new interpretation of the classic complication – with its mechanism now sounding 10-minute intervals – a logical complement to the ‘digital’ display of the time.
4. This Portugieser Perpetual Calendar 42 presents, for the first time, the famous IWC calendar complication integrated in an IWC-manufactured movement from the 82000-calibre family. Displaying the calendar on three subdials, it features an 18k 5N gold case, silver-plated dial, gold-plated hands and brown alligator leather strap by Santoni.
5. The Montblanc 1858 Geosphere line captures the spirit of mountain exploration, with design codes taken from Minerva 1920s and 1930s military chronographs. This 42mm piece unveils a unique picture of the Month Blanc mountain on the case back, and features a MB 29.25 calibre with worldtime complication.
6. Following its launch in 2018, Piaget’s Altiplano Ultimate Concept has gone from micro-engineering experiment to a reality, with the timepiece now available for collectors to buy, own and use. As the world’s thinnest mechanical hand-wound watch at just 2mm – as thick as two credit cards stacked together – it proves size matters.
7. Hampton, Baume et Mercier’s iconic collection, now pays tribute to Art Deco with its new contemporary collection, where curves take precedent over right angles. The smooth lines of this Hampton 10472 quartz watch glide round the rectangular case, with its pure silver-coloured dial and grey minute track ensuring elegance in simplicity.
8. Hermès’ Arceau L’heure de la Lune moonphase watch takes collectors to another world, with its cosmic design codes. Two mother-of-pearl moons sit stationary, as two lacquer dials rotate over the top, to cover and uncover the moons every 59 days, while a Pegasus horse sits at 12 o’clock, representing the origins of Hermès.
