Swatch Sistem51 has opted for metal. Combining high performance and robust materials this timepiece features the same single central screw system as the collection of the same name. A 90 hour power reserve is also guaranteed. The openwork case gives its wearer a window onto the central screw and the 51 printed components which decorate the self-winding timepiece. Seven exclusive and timeless models fitted with rubber or fine leather straps or metal bracelets are available at a very accessible price.
Created in the year 2000, the saucer-shaped styling of this timepiece surmounted by a sapphire dome is both surprising and unusual. This reinterpretation of the Heritage in an all-black version has an imposing 47 mm case. In black or red, this timepiece with its rebellious look benefits from exceptional luminescence thanks to the generous application of Superluminova to the dial and leaf-style hands. Water-resistant to 100 metres, this Swiss made model has been produced in 88 copies. It adds a touch of elegance to the male wearer’s wrist.
MeisterSinger timepieces can be recognised at first glance by their single hand and double digit hour indexes. However, this piece differs through its size, more angular shapes and colours which create its own distinctive character. The 35 mm stainless steel case houses a manual movement made in Switzerland which can be admired through a transparent case back held in place by four screws. Mat and polished surfaces highlight this watch which is available in five different colours.
Highlighting the 225th anniversary which the firm is celebrating this year, this model is a subtle fusion of elegance and tradition. With its 40 mm diameter, it benefits from a revisited vintage design inspired by the aesthetic codes of the Gyromatic, a brand model dating back to the 1960s. Its champagne-coloured dial, luminescent dauphine-style hands and applied indexes are the key to a retro style. This timepiece has an open back through which the GP03300 movement manufactured in-house can be admired.
Designed by Konstantin Grcic, this model is reinterpreted in a contemporary style while retaining its original geometrical shape. Like the eleven pieces in the collection, this timepiece pays tribute to high tech ceramic material. Its monobloc case with lightly curved rims is enhanced by a steel crown with ceramic plating. As the fancy takes them, women wearers will appreciate the brilliant black or white versions, both sublimated by four diamonds.
Part of the Funny Hours Collection 2016, this watch evokes a world which sparkles at each passing minute. The sky is the limit for the imagination as a veritable firework display appears on the wearer’s wrist. Its coloured touches on the dial and bezel accentuate the glamour of the rose and silvered twisters. Glitter sparkles along the whole bracelet adding a delicate touch of magic. Guaranteed for two years, this Swiss made watch tells the time in fancy-free style.
Designed for the man about town, this watch is an invitation to travel. Halfway between a circle and a square, its 18 carat rose gold case features a subtle alternation of polished and fine-brushed finishes. The dark blue dial contrasts with the domed indexes to create a clever play of light. Laid out across the time curve, the V-shaped bridge structures the whole timepiece and also serves as an indicator for the GMT complication. The second time-zone is shown by a disc with 24h graduations, divided into two to distinguish between day and night.
The new interpretation of the Luno Gent collection aims to be powerful and dazzling with a high profile; its design is typified by a flat and smooth bezel on a round 40 mm case, harmoniously integrated into a more angular bracelet. Under a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, the contemporary sunray satin-finished dial sports the brand’s iconic concave dot at 12 o’clock, eleven applied baton-style indexes, dauphine hands and a grey printed minute circle. This timepiece is powered by an ETA quartz movement.
Fitted with the P.2002/E manufactured movement, this timepiece has many functions, such as a GMT indication via a central hand showing the time in the second time-zone and an am/pm indicator in the seconds subdial at 9 o’clock. The date and month are shown in the subdial at 3 o’clock. The 8 day power-reserve assured by three barrels is indicated on the back. This calibre also incorporates a superb watchmaking complication in the shape of a time equation display.
Inspired by a model from the 1930s, this timepiece pays tribute to the first wristwatches in history. After the first world war, men abandoned pocket watches in favour of wristwatches. To make these new timepieces, watch companies started out from a pocket watch and welded arches onto each side of the case so as to slide a leather strap against the back. The Tissot Heritage 1936 remains loyal to this design of olden times. Its hands evoke classical watchmaking.
