• 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. Founded in 1839, the tradition and unique heritage that Patek Philippe carries on is the rigorous and meticulous attitude towards watchmaking. 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.


  • A Moment of Magic with Messika

  • 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.

     Đồng hồ Breguet

    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. Unlike the other models in the Tradition family, this watch has a retrograde second hand at 10 o’clock position, and the scale intersects the off-centered main dial at 12 o’clock position.  This 40mm white gold watch features self-winding 505 SR1 calibre that allows 50 hours of power reserve. 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.


    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.


  • Ulysse Nardin Jade 3103-125B/591.3

    In 1846, Ulysse Nardin was inspired by the powerful movement of the ocean and started to be best known for its “manufacture of highly accurate marine chronometers” back then. In 2013, Ulysse Nardin introduced 5 in-house calibers, and one of them—UN-370 for Jade is the first in-house caliber (which is also a hand-engraved skeleton caliber) for ladies with a unique design of the crown. For female watch lovers, crown has been one of the most annoying component of a gorgeous watch. Sometimes it might mess up your manicure when you are using fingernails to pull it out.


    Ulysse Nardin has taken this into consideration. In the Jade Collection, they made a special design for the crown that it doesn’t need to be pulled out to adjust the time and date—there is a pusher at 4 o’clock location that you can choose the crown function. The crown position indicator is on the white mother-of-pearl dial at 3 o’clock position for winding, date setting, and time setting. There are also 22 diamonds on the dial that form the shape of a wave, where at 6 o’clock position there is a small seconds-hand dial. It also features a 39 by 36 mm stainless steel case with 56 diamonds on the bezel. In the base caliber, this watch also has anti-magnetic silicium so that its precision won’t be affected by electronic devices and magnetic fields. The elegant deep blue satin strap perfectly matches with the watch, and together they perform a marvelous symphony of the timepiece and the mysterious ocean.


  • Hublot Big Bang One Click - Chen Man Special Edition

    Chen Man—one of the most popular international visual artist became Hublot’s first Chinese female ambassador in 2015. Her unique angle of view and the fusion of art and fashion created a series of outstanding visual art pieces. Her belief happens to coincide with the brand philosophy of Hublot:”the art of fusion.” As Mr. Loic Biver, General Manager of Hublot of the Greater China said, “Chen Man is not only a renowned visual artist but also a promoter of pioneer art. As a female artist, she is one of a kind. From her, we can see what women have contributed to the world of art.”


    In 2017, Hublot introduces the Big Bang One Click—Chen Man Special Edition. It perfectly fuses eastern aesthetics into the western-style watch. The rotation of the hands of watch records the reincarnation of a peach blossom’s life. At 3 o’clock, 6 o’clock, 9 o’clock, and 12 o’clock locations on the dial are engraved with the timid bud, peach blossom, flourishing peach leaves, and plump fruit respectively to imply the traditional Chinese saying:” to see a world in a flower.” The four season cycle not only shows the changes of a peach blossom, but also represents the changes of a lady in her lifetime.  Every woman grows from a shy little girl to a vigorous teenage girl, then to a mature lady, and finally, she becomes a mother and nourishes her own kids.


    On the back case of the watch, there are four Chinese characters to Chen Man, which are directly translated as “Gold Knows Jade’s Time.” It shows the beauty of ephemeral blossoms along the endless flow of time.  It means “you know my heart” subtly, which is the highest realm of love. In Chinese, the words are transformed from a Chinese idiom: “golden branch jade leaves.” The 39 mm polished stainless steel case of the Hublot Big Bang One Click—Chen Man Special Edition is as hard as gold, meaning love over gold; while the white mother-of-pearl dial is mild as jade, meaning the attitude of gentle and modest. The fusion of hardness and softness combined harmoniously with the lively colors that presents us a traditional Chinese romance. The watch comes in two colors of rubber strap—turquoise and white. The incomparable “one click” system makes it so much easier to change the color of straps by your mood. A charming and practical timepiece that is limited edition of 100 pieces.


  • Chanel Boy-Friend Tweed

    It is hard to think of Chanel without its symbolic tweed pieces. It has been the epitome of chic and classic. The inspiration of this series was actually Coco Chanel’s boyfriend—the Duke of Westminster. Once, Chanel borrowed some sportswear from him, and she felt the supple fabric would be a good fit for her design. Since then, Chanel started to use the tweed fabrics for everything such as sportswear, suits, and coats. Its comfortable texture, sophisticated stitch, and incomparable quality made it a big hit among women.


    Last year, Chanel first introduced the Chanel Boy-Friend Tweed Watch Collection. Combining their iconic tweed pattern into the straps, these watches ignite the sparks of fashion and “blurs the boundaries between masculine and feminine.” The watch comes in two sizes: small (21.5mm by 27.9mm) and medium (26.7mm by 34.6mm). A high-precision quartz movement powers the Black guilloché dial on a steel case. The woven steel strap with tweed motif and folding buckle perfectly matches with the case and adds comfort on your wrist. For those ladies who prefer a little bit more feminine, there’s the one with 62 brilliant-cut diamonds on the bezel in small size.


    In 2017, Chanel presents two more colors in the Boy-Friend Tweed Watch family—black and beige gold. The black tweed strap without diamonds comes in two sizes: small and large (28.6mm by 37mm), and that with 64 brilliant-cut diamonds on the bezel comes only in medium. The beige gold tweed strap comes in two sizes: small and medium, and both of them are with diamonds on the 18K beige gold bezel. Since Mother’s Day is approaching, consider this as a stylish and special gift for the ladies.


  • IWC Da Vinci

    In 1969 at Basel Watch Show, the first Da Vinci (Ref. 3501) with Beta 21 Quartz movement made its debut. Its gold hexagonal-shaped case with gold bracelet immediately caught everyone’s attention. Undoubtedly it became the bestseller and the avant-garde as being a brand new collection of IWC.


    Ref. 3501

    The first memorable evolution of the collection was in 1985, when IWC first launched the Da Vinci Perpetual Calendar Chronograph. (Ref. 3750) This watch represents the comeback of complex mechanical movements. The round case design with articulated lugs, the perpetual calendar module where all the settings could easily be done using the “mushroom” crowns, and a relatively low price made it a long-standing bestseller.


    Ref. 3750

    In 2007, IWC presented the tonneau-shaped Da Vinci with IWC’s first in-house chronograph movement. The Da Vinci Chronograph (Ref. 3764) integrated innovations—a chronograph that could be read off directly like a normal watch with stopped minutes and hours appeared on the display. In 2009, Schaffhausen’s engineers added the Da Vinci Perpetual Calendar Digital Date-Month (Ref. 3761). It was the first flyback chronograph that not only had perpetual calendar but also the digital leap year display with two large double windows for months and years.


    Ref. 3764


    Ref. 3761

    Now in 2017, after ten years, IWC returns to the round-shaped case with movable lugs (which increases comfort). They also combined a mechanical chronograph with a perpetual moon phase display of the Da Vinci Perpetual Calendar Chronograph for the first time. The perpetual moon phase only needs to be adjusted once per 577.5 years. Aside from that, the Da Vinci Tourbillon Retrograde Chronograph features a 44mm case with classic tourbillon, a retrograde date with a sports chronograph on a single dial. This time with the further-developed 89360 chronograph calibre (which is the brand-new IWC-manufactured 89900 calibre) permits the “hacking tourbillon”—a down to the second setting of time. As women occupies a large portion of watch lovers, female is the main focus of interest of IWC. As the name of the collection implies, Leonardo Da Vinci was the inspiration of this whole collection in the first place. What inspired him in different spheres such as mathematics, art, and architecture, was the “flower of life”—the harmonious pattern of 19 overlapping circles. IWC Da Vinci Automatic 36 (Ref. 4583), Da Vinci Automatic (Ref. 3566), and Da Vinci Automatic Moon Phase 36 (4593) all have the “flower of life” engraved at the back of the case that represents the code of beauty of these watches.
