Breguet

Tradition Quantième Rétrograde 7579 boasts an open view of the movement with all its architectural shapes. The watch features a retrograde date display, a complication that the watchmaker was one of the first to develop. This Breguet creation comes in 18 carat white gold with a finely fluted caseband. Its 505Q self-winding calibre is equipped with a reverse in-line lever escapement featuring silicon horns. Another specific feature is hours chapter with Roman numerals, accentuated by a delicate engine-turned Clous de Paris pattern. An ideal accessory to complete a corporate look, this watch is fitted with alligator leather strap with a white gold folding buckle. breguet.com

This new Pasha de Cartier watch embraces an eclectic combination of power and elegance. The 1847 MC automatic calibre is visible through the transparent case back. A steel case, fluted crown cap and crown set with synthetic spinels and silver flinqué dial and water resistance up to ten bar are a few characteristics of this Cartier watch.  The blued-steel diamond-shaped hands, steel bracelet with SmartLink adjustment system, second dark grey alligator skin strap and interchangeable steel deployant buckle further enhance the distinctive character. cartier.com

IWC Schaffhausen

IWC Schaffhausen

Pilot’s Watch Chronograph TOP GUN Edition “SFTI” takes its inspiration from the “Strike Fighter Tactics Instructor” watch, that was created in 2018 in the honour of the US Naval Aviation Community. Limited to just 1,500 pieces, this new IWC Schaffhausen creation is made with robust materials that can withstand the extreme conditions of the cockpit. While the large 44mm case is made of black zirconium oxide ceramic, the case back and chronograph pushers are made of “ceratanium”, a recent material innovation by IWC. The matt black design elevates the sturdy appeal of the chronograph. The sporty timepiece is powered by IWC manufactured 69380 calibre and is fitted with a green textile strap. iwc.com

Panerai

Panerai

Panerai likes to experiment with different materials and design combinations. We can see this in its latest addition — Submersible Goldtech Orocarbo 44mm (PAM01070) that combines two of the brand’s innovative materials for the very first time: Goldtech and Carbotech. The Submersible Goldtech – 44mm is configured as a highly reliable tool able to face high-pressure owing to features like a unidirectional rotating bezel and screwed case back. The watch features a sun-brushed black dial enhanced by applied indexes and satiné “Soleil” decoration, an unconventional embellishment. The timepiece comes with a black rubber strap and a trapezoidal pin buckle in titanium. panerai.com

Crafted from 18 carat yellow gold, the new version comes with a fluted, rotatable bezel unique to the Sky-Dweller, which is used to set the watch in conjunction with the Ring Command system.

Omega

It was in 1970 that Omega was awarded the prestigious “Silver Snoopy Award”, from the astronauts of NASA for the brand’s unique contribution to space exploration; and now exactly after 50 years, a special watch has been created to celebrate this occasion. The new Speedmaster Silver Snoopy Award 50th Anniversary watch showcases Snoopy on the dial and the case back. The stylish 42mm stainless steel case is laser-engraved with Ag925 and features the brand’s favourite beagle as an embossed silver medallion on the blue subdial at 9 o’clock. The timepiece is powered by Omega’s Co-Axial Master Chronometer calibre 3861 movement – the most recent update of the legendary moonwatch movement. omegawatches.com
