BVLGARI OCTO FINISSIMO TADAO ANDO
Bulgari teamed up with the legendary Japanese architect Tadao Ando to create this watch based on the Japanese concept of Mikazuki, or the crescent moon. This first stage of the waxing moon symbolises the transitory nature of time. Time on the watch is expressed using a spiral that uncoils across the blue lacquered dial from the base of the seconds hand. The gold crescent moon at 5 o’clock.

JAEGER-LECOULTRE REVERSO TRIBUTE NONANTIÈME
This striking new version of the Reverso in a pink gold case celebrates the 90th anniversary of the famous watch. It features a front face with a sunraybrushed dial, whose lower half has a moonphase display within the circle formed by the small seconds counter. Beneath 12 o’clock is a large date display.

Seen for the first time in a Reverso, this complication recalls digital displays of JLC wristwatches in the 1930s. In the large aperture below the hour, minutes are displayed on a rotating disc that is partially concealed by a three-quarter plate lacquered in vivid blue, and sprinkled with tiny golden stars to depict the night sky. Within a small circle at the centre, an applied golden sun and moon pass above a horizon to indicate night and day. Powered by a manually wound movement with a power reserve of 42 hours.

The 45mm steel case with black sand-blasted PVD, 18K pink gold bezel and horns, 18K pink gold, and black rubber crown, encloses a dial made up of a sapphire crystal disc that projects the initials of each of the 24 cities as if they were suspended above the hands.

Similarly, indoor runners can see their heart rate zone. At the end of their session, they can input the total distance recorded by the treadmill into the watch, which will automatically calculate the pace of the session. Another novelty in this update is a dedicated heart rate screen for users who want to focus on their heart rate during a sports activity. Comes in a 45mm fine-brushed steel case. Battery life is 20 hours for standard all-day use, including a one-hour workout, and six hours for sports use.

LONGINES HERITAGE CLASSIC
