14 Watches to Celebrate the Month of March
14 Watches to Celebrate the Month of March

Two history-making divers’ watches and three skeleton watches are the highlight of our timepieces for the month

A skeletonised variation on the DEFY Skyline launched last year, this watch comes in an angular 41 mm steel case with a faceted bezel that is reminiscent of the early DEFY models, reimagined with twelve sides that are positioned as extensions to the hour markers. The open blue or black dial reveals the 3620 SK, Zenith’s famous automatic El Primero calibre, whose main plate,
bridges and open star-shaped oscillating weights are finished in the same colour as the dials. The baton hour markers, the
central hour and minute hands are filled with Super-LumiNova. The constantly running 1/10th of a second counter at 6 o’clock
makes steady jumps in fixed increments, completing one revolution every 10 seconds. Power reserve of 60 hours.




This skeletonised, automatic watch is part of Panerai’s ongoing collaboration with Brabus, the Mercedes-owned German luxury mobility specialist. It comes in a 47 mm case made from Carbotech, a patented Panerai alloy, with military green hues spread
across the watch, including the hands, rehaut and rubberized crown. It is powered by the P.4000 calibre, the first automatic movement with an off-centre micro-rotor developed by Panerai, with a three-day power reserve whose indicator appears
on the reverse of the case. The unidirectional rotating bezel is meant to calculate immersion time and GMT function, while the one-piece, off-centre oscillating weight permits bi-directional winding. Water-resistant to 300 metres, the watch comes with
two straps, a black bi-material version composed of calf leather melded with a rubber base and one in military green rubber. Limited to 200 pieces.




The professional version of this watch was developed for the 2019 Five Deeps Expedition, the world’s first manned effort to the deepest point in each of the five oceans. It was the brainchild of submersible pilot and adventurer Victor Vescovo, the first person to reach both the highest and lowest points on the planet. Omega has been making diver’s watches since 1930, but this expedition demanded a timepiece robust enough to survive the gigantic pressure at the deepest places on earth. Following the world record dive, the watch has now been adapted and made available for the public with a similar water resistance of 6,000 metres. The 45.5 mm case is in Grade 5 Titanium with a brushed black ceramic bezel ring featuring a diving scale in LiquidMetal®. The Grade 5 titanium dial comes with a gradient white-to-cyan central seconds hand, cyan Arabic numerals, and 18K white gold hour/minute hands and hour markers. The distinctive ‘Manta Lugs’ at each end of the case, hold the striped black and cyan polyamide NATO strap with a loop and buckle in Grade 5 Titanium. On the caseback, there is a Grade 5 titanium medallion, laser-engraved with a Sonar emblem featuring the iconic OMEGA Seahorse at its centre. Powered by the Omega Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8912.




This origin of this watch goes back to the early 1980s, when Hublot was founded by the Italian watch maker Carlo Crocco and is a tribute to the philosophy that he set in motion for the brand — of fusing traditional luxury watch making with modern materials like rubber. The new version is presented in three sizes, 33, 38 and 42 mm, and each size comes in a choice of three materials, titanium, black magic ceramic and yellow gold. All the dials are in black, and each watch, like the original Fusion from 1980, comes with a rubber strap. The 42 mm and 38 mm variations are powered by the HUB1110 automatic movement, while the 33 mm carries the HUB2913 quartz movement.




A work of gold and lacquer, mechanics and craftsmanship, this watch celebrates the advent of the Chinese year of the water rabbit through an original 88-piece series inspired by the Chinese zodiac calendar. The 39.5 mm case in ethical 18-carat
rose gold frames a dial portraying the rabbit – a cautious and alert animal – and its relationship with the moon. It features two rabbits – one grey and the other red – frolicking under a full moon in a landscape dotted with Chinese olive trees – a fragrant Asian native shrub symbolising success and achievement, qualities often associated with the rabbit. The dial is sprinkled with Urushi lacquer, gold powder, and mother-of-pearl inlays. It is made by a Japanese artisan drawing on centuries of expertise. The L.U.C 96.17-L self-winding mechanical movement which drives the watch comes with a 65-hour power reserve.




This stunner is the first open-worked watch in the Octo Finissimo line. It comes in a 40 mm satin polished rose gold case that is just 5.95 metres thick. The skeleton dial features a gauge-like power reserve indicator that partly encircles the small seconds dial at the bottom left, The handwound Caliber BVL 199Sk movement with anthracite PVD bridges has a power reserve of eight days.




This pathbreaking watch for the first time makes it possible to measure up to three-hour immersion for extreme divers who spend long-duration under water in the world’s deepest oceans. It celebrates both the 70th anniversary of the Fifty
Fathoms and the 10th anniversary of Blancpain’s partnership with the Gombessa Project which explores deep see phenomenon and wildlife around the world. The distinctive bezel features a three-hour scale to allow for the measurement of longer immersion time. It is linked to a special hand that completes one full turn in three hours and whose material and colour – a white luminescent coating with green emission – match those of its markers. The bezel’s inlay is in black ceramic. Its legibility is optimised by a spherical crystal that eliminates any visual distortion. The absolute black finish of the dial which captures almost 97% of the light in the deep ensures excellent visibility. Water resistant to 300 metres, the 47 mm in lightweight Grade 23 titanium is equipped with a helium valve. Powered by the 13P8 self-winding movement with a 5-day power reserve.




LONGINES PILOT MAJETEK This pilot’s watch with a storied history comes in a 43 mm steel case with a fluted bi-directional rotating bezel. The case is fitted on the outside, at 9 o’clock, with a commemorative plaque saying 1935’, the year in which the original Majetek was launched. It conceals a patented gear mechanism that guarantees 100 metre water resistance of the externa fluted bezel system and the internal fluorescent mobile marker or starting time indicator’ displayed below the sapphire crystal. On the 1935 model, the bezel and the crystal marker rotated as a unit, while in the new watch the sapphire crystal is fixed. The matte black dial which ensures maximum visibility, along with the oversized seconds dial at 6 o’clock, are a reminder of the era when this watch was an essential part of a pilot’s flying kit. The Longines mechanical self-winding calibre offers a power reserve of 72 hours.




This elegant watch in a 38.0 x 44.2 x 9.7 mm square polished white or black high-tech ceramic case with a sandblasted
titanium caseback in white or black PVD coating, features a skeletonised dial which reveals the Rado calibre R734
automatic movement with an 80-hour power reserve. Gold-coloured elements and sparkling diamonds in the white
version – and brilliant rose goldcoloured accents combined with black high-tech ceramic add to its looks. The integrated
bracelet is in polished white/ black high-tech ceramic titanium with a 3-fold clasp in titanium.




This minimalist design comes in a 42 mm case crafted from gleaming pale yellow gold ion-plated stainless steel, with a white ceramic-bezel. Its white dial boasts pale yellow gold-toned accents with the iconic dot motif at 12:00, and a date window.




Gucci is taking the G-Timeless slim collection in two new directions. Available in a variety of colour combinations, the
new timepieces feature the Gucci bee motif as a rotating central second hand. One new style brings a dynamic touch to the line
with an elegant nine-link bracelet. This style is offered in three classic but refined colourways – yellow gold PVD with a silver
sunbrushed dial, or steel with a silver or black sunbrushed dial– with a choice between two different case sizes (29 mm or 36 mm). The other new style is characterized by joyful colours. Two feminine editions blend red or black lizard straps with a pink
or blue lacquered dial and five diamond indexes. Showcasing a slightly simpler design, another two editions bring together a taupe or black leather strap with a silver sunbrushed dial.




This quartz watch features a dial in black which is covered with high-quality mineral glass. The strap is made of stainless steel. There are two rectangular pushers on the architectural case that surround the sunray dial, which reflects light with a metal
reflector ring.




This watch pays tribute to the Swiss tradition of hiking in the Alps, with a design that replicates Swiss hiking signs, a dial featuring the rough texture of a natural hiking path, and a sporty rubber strap. The Swiss Army Knife, a standard item on hikes, is evoked in the counterweight of the second hand. The case features strong shapes and curves with a notch at 6 o’clock on the bezel that looks as if it has been carved out by a sharp pocketknife. The industrial roots of the brand are reflected in the finish of the case, in the engraved material and the Victorinox founding year 1884 on the bezel. The 43 mm case is made from recycled steel (black PVD on selected model). The unidirectional bezel features an inlay of aluminium in the quartz models, and ceramic on the automatic. The Journey 1994 is powered by the Ronda 715 Swiss-made quartz movement with battery end-oflife indication, and a Selitta SW200-1 Swiss-made automatic movement with a 38-hour power reserve.




Powered by quartz movement, it comes in four colors; green, red, yellow and blue. It features a 42mm case, sunray dial and stainless steel bracelet.
