  • Ulysse Nardin Marine Chronometer Lady

    Ulysse Nardin first began creating watches in 1846. His original intent was to “develop his own chronometers based on his extensive experience working with marine chronometers and astronomical timepieces.” Back then, advance navigation instruments were not available for ships, and there is only one precise instrument on board—their marine chronometers. The meticulous accuracy of the chronometers were extremely crucial for the sailors because that was the exclusive piece of technology that they can rely on while sailing and navigating the seas. Over the years, Ulysse Nardin frequently presented his marine chronometers to the Geneva and Neuchatel Observatories for rigorous testing, and proved their superiority in watchmaking industry. Ulysse Nardin carried on this legacy and created the Marine collection that uses many of the elements presented on antique chronometers.

    Inspired by the power of the Ocean, Ulysse Nardin presents the stunning Marine Chronometer Lady (Ref. #: 1182-160C-3C/490)—a combination of precise watchmaking, aesthetic beauty, and innovative technology. Using Silicium technology, this watch uses a self-winding movement powered by UN-118 caliber. With 39mm 18K rose gold case set with 160 diamonds, this timepiece also features a white mother of pearl dial set with 57 diamonds. There is a 60 hours power reserve indicator sub-dial at 12 o’clock and a chronometer indicator on the sub-second dial with a small date aperture at 6 o’clock. The white rubber strap that matches with the color of the watch also comes with 18K rose gold element set with 74 diamonds.

  • A. Lange & Söhne Saxonia Dual Time

    A. Lange & Söhne’s Saxonia is inspired and named for the homeland of the company—Saxony, the independent state located within the heart of Germany. As one of the oldest line of A. Lange & Söhne, the subtlety and heritage of this watch presents a perfect blend of elegance and simplicity. The shape of this watch is classic and sleek, while the overall aesthetic of the collection “echoes the prosperity of the Saxony region during the renowned Baroque period.”

    This time, A. Lange & Söhne adds a little complication into their Saxonia family – the Saxonia dual time that symbolizes the evolution within the Saxonia collection. It is also the first wristwatch in the Saxonia range that sports a GMT display. With a 38.5mm 18K rose gold case, this watch features a 24-hour display with day/night indicator beneath 12 o’clock and a subsidiary second dial at 6 o’clock position. Using a color coded system, the Saxonia Dual Time uses gold hands for local time and blue steel hand for home time, while both times use the same minute hands. The dial uses applied gold baton hour markers and a pleasant symmetrical layout. The in-house made and designed A. Lange & Söhne caliber L086.2 powers the watch and offers 72 hours power reserve. It is a concise and classy piece that perfectly pairs with business or casual attire.

  • Frederique Constant Smartwatch

    Breaking the conventional concept of watchmaking, Frederique Constant partners with MMT (Manufacture Modules Technologies) and launched the Frederique Constant Horological Smartwatch. They are one of the first luxury brands to offer a smartwatch. Frederique Constant wants to have a tryout of basic smartwatches instead of diving too deep at the first place, therefore the Horological Smartwatch integrates high technology into classic luxury Swiss watch design—no digital screens, no charging ports, and look identical to traditional timepieces. With Bluetooth connection in the watch to the smartphones, there are multiple functions in the companion app (MMT-365) that are vital to the experience.

    On a 42 mm rose gold case, this watch features much more functions than it seems. It has activity tracker that can help you keep track of daily steps, calories burned, and total distance you walked, active alerts that can remind you to get some exercise if you have been idle for a set amount of time, and the best part is the dynamic coach that can give you suggestions, tips, and information specifically for you based on your activity and sleep goals. If you wear this watch or put it under your pillow when you go to bed, it will provide details on much time you spent in deep sleep, light sleep, or awake via the sleep monitoring function. The smart sleep alarm function ensures you wake up at the best appropriate time in your sleep cycle. Since the watch is connected to the smartphone, you never need to set a time and date since it will pick up the time from your smartphone and automatically display the new time—basically like a smart worldtimer. It also has notifications function that reminds you if there is a missed call or received a new message by vibrating. It is amazing how all these functions are all managed in such a simple and elegant timepiece.

  • Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra

    Omega launched the Seamaster collection in 1948 to celebrate the brand’s 100th anniversary, which makes it one of the oldest lines in the current collection, including Constellation, Speedmaster, and De Ville. It was modeled after the Omega Marine, which was the brand’s first water-resistant watch that was released in 1932.

  • Roger Dubuis Excalibur Automatic Skeleton Carbon Watch

    Roger Dubuis is a luxury watch company founded in 1995 in Geneva by Roger Dubuis and Carlos Dias. The idea of the brand was to “push the technical boundaries of fine watchmaking, incorporating high-end mechanical complications in uncompromising designs.” In 2005, Roger Dubuis launched the Excalibur collections featuring an exclusive double tourbillon movement, which is the icon of the brand. The main characteristics of Excalibur collection is to illustrate the combination of technical excellence and powerful design using a purposefully extravagant expression. Aside from that, each piece of the collection meets the new requirements of the Poinçon de Genève.

     Roger-Dubuis-Excalibur-Automatic-Skeleton-2

    Today, Roger Dubuis introduces the Excalibur Automatic Skeleton Carbon (Ref. RDDBEX0508). This is a new version of the Excalibur Automatic Skeleton—the first non-tourbillon skeleton timepiece and the first automatic skeleton watch of Roger Dubuis movement (RD820SQ) with micro-rotor that offers 60 hours power reserve. All faces of the 167 parts of this watch are individually hand-finished. Whereas the former model was made in 18K rose gold, this new one features a  42mm case made of a high-tech composite called cabon fiber sheet moulding compound (SMC), which makes this timepiece more stylish and light-weight. All the mechanisms are clearly shown from the front face of the watch. The black alligator strap along with the DLC titanium adjustable folding clasp matches perfectly with the case and shows the aesthetics of watchmaking integrating technology.

  • Jaeger LeCoultre Duometre Unique Travel Time

    In 2007, Jaeger LeCoultre first introduced the Duometre Collection that caught all the chronograph lovers’ attention. The idea of the whole collection is to separate normal time keeping function of the watch from the chronograph function. Thus, the Duometre Collection uses the Dual-Wing ® concept—two separate power sources for each of the functions to make this happen.  Because of that, the Duometre has bi-directional winding. There are three sub-dials on the main dial—the first one at 9 to 10 o’clock position has regular hour and minute hands; the second one at 2 to 3 o’clock position has the chronograph minute and hour hands; and the third one at 6 o’clock position is the “jumping seconds” complication that makes the watches accurate to one-sixth of a second.

    Later on, a new member joined the Duometre Collection—the Duometre Unique Travel Time (Ref. 6062420). Powered by the Jaeger LeCoultre Calibre 383, this time, the sub-dial of the second time zone with a digital jumping hour is located at 9 to 10 o’clock position. This is the first world time watch that can measure the second time zone’s time down to minutes. At 2 to 3 o’clock position is the sub-dial of the home time with standard dial. At 6 o’clock position is the sub-dial of day/night indication with hour disc and showed via world map which turns. On the two sides of the world time sub-dial are the 50 hours power reserve indicator for home time and second time zone. At the back of the 42 mm rose gold case engraved the names of cities corresponding to 24 time zones. With so much style and complications, this timepiece undoubtedly is the best travel companion.

  • Patek Philippe 5496R-001

    As one of the oldest independent family-owned watch manufacturer, the independence ensures Patek Philippe to be absolutely free and creative.

The incomparable quality and workmanship have passed on to this day. As one of the most prestigious watch manufacturers in the world, Patek Philippe is not just a brand with long history. They also devote themselves to innovation. They have confirmed their pioneering role by “filing over 80 patents, including twenty of major importance to the history of horology.” What makes Patek Philippe more unique is the rarity and aesthetics of their watches. The watches are only produced in small series of between 10 and several hundred to make sure every single one of them is elaborately made following rigid standards. Thus, Patek Philippe retains its value over the years.

    In 2015, Patek Philippe introduces a timepiece combining tradition and innovation from their Grand Complication series—5496R-001. With a 39.5mm rose gold case, this watch features mechanical self-winding movement powered by Caliber 324 S QR. The hand-stitched shiny chocolate brown alligator strap with square scale adds the impression of luxe and antique. Nevertheless, the non-traditional perpetual calendar functions are shown on the silvery opaline dial: a moonphase display at 6 o’clock position; three window displays that show day, month, and leap year are at 9 o’clock, 3 o’clock, and 12 o’clock respectively; a retrograde date hand that moves backwards between 7 o’clock and 4 o’clock.  The arrangement of all the functions on the dial is neat and clear at a glance, while the vintage look and high quality makes this piece an eternal classic.

  • Breguet Tradition 7057

    In 1775, Abraham Louis Breguet founded his own company in Paris. Aside from making spectacular watch pieces for legendary figures such as Napoleon Bonaparte, Caroline Murat—Queen of Naples Queen Marie-Antoinette, and Winston Churchill, he invented irreplaceable components of watches that all great watchmaking companies are still using to this day, including Breguet Balance-Spring, Breguet Hands, Breguet Arabic numerals and Pare-chute.

    Abraham Louis Breguet

    In 2005, Breguet introduced the first Breguet Tradition Collection watch (Ref. 7027). The collection was inspired by the noted watchmaker and the founder of Breguet –Abraham Louis Breguet. It was a bold break through—mixing traditional Breguet Style with an antique movement that fully shows all the elaborate mechanisms of the movement on top of the watch face. It was the first time for Breguet to manufacture this type of watch. The innovative and marvelous appearance immediately captured a lot of attention.

    In 2010, Breguet presented the Tradition 7057—a combination of simplicity and complication. On the 40mm white gold case, there is a small off-centered dial at 12 o’clock with Breguet hour/minute hands only. Aside from that is the complex mechanisms inside the watch that can be clearly seen from the dial. The hand-winding 507 DR1 calibre offers 50 hours of power reserve, and the pare-chute shock protection mechanism inside the watch can protect mechanical watches from damage when dropped.

    At Baselworld 2015, Breguet Tradition 7097 Automatique Seconde Retrograde made its debut.

With a more stylish decoration—peening—added to the components, the mechanisms are more industrial-looking with textured surface.

  • Panerai Luminor Marina 1950 Carbotech 3 Days Automatic PAM 661 Watch

    Panerai introduced the first carbotech-cased watch in 2015, which is the Panerai Luminor Submersible 1950 Carbotech 3 Days Automatic (PAM 616). The Carbotech composite is made up of carbon fiber that are pressed together in a controlled temperature with Polyether Ether Ketone (PEEK) binding the materials together and making it stronger. It has never been used in watchmaking before. It is so impressive that Panerai integrates high-tech composite into the watch to make it one of a kind.

    mmcarbo-2895

    Last year, Panerai presented the Luminor Marina 1950 3 Days Automatic (PAM 661)—the first Luminor Marina made up of Carbotech composite material. With the 44mm matte black case, it has luminous ecru hour dots and Arabic numbers at 3, 6, 9, 12 o’clock positions on a black dial, to go with the Ponte Vecchio brown leather strap. At 9 o’clock position, there is a small second hand dial with a distinct bright blue hand. Since the case is made by a composite material based on carbon fiber, the weight of the watch is much lighter than other models. Inside PAM 661 is the Panerai P9010 automatic movement that is entirely developed and created in the Panerai Manufacture in Neuchâtel. It offers a thinner design, a balanced bridge secured on two sides, and maintains three-day power reserve. Father's Day is around the corner. PAM 661 is an absolutely light and stylish gift for Dad.
