Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Grande Tradition Tourbillon Cylindrique à Quantième Perpétuel


The world’s most accurate perpetual calendar. Inspired by its 19th century predecessors, this watch is said to be the world’s most accurate perpetual calendar because of the advanced technology that powers it. Within its 42 mm pink gold case, the automatic winding mechanical movement  Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 985 beats to the rhythm of a flying tourbillion, equipped with a cylindrical balance-spring for precision timing. The tourbillon’s grade 5 titanium carriage, its large 14-carat balance and its cylindrical balance-spring create an impression of levitation: the tourbillon appears to be suspended in mid-air at the heart of the movement. The perpetual calendar provides a crystal-clear display of the day, date, month and year, alongside with the moon phases, while the small seconds hands is located above the flying tourbillon. Power reserve of 48 hours




Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph 42mm


The six new versions of the iconic watch come in sturdy 42 mm stainless or 18 K pink gold cases. The big changes are visible in the design of the push-piece and the crown. Black ceramic replaces rubber on the crown and pushpieces, which have been resized to create a more contemporary look. The bezel is in satin-brushed and polished stainless steel or 18-carat pink gold, secured by the brand’s signature eight polished steel hexagonal screws. The dial is decorated in the distinctive waffle-like ‘MégaTapisserie’ pattern that comes in different colours including navy,black, slate-grey, ivory-khaki and pink-gold.



IWC Aquatimer Perpetual Calendar Digital Date-Month


This 49-mm limited edition watch (50 pieces) in a rubber-coated titanium case with an 18-carat red gold bezel is the second-largest wristwatch in IWC’s history after the Big Pilot from the 1940s. In order to advance its large month display discs, the watch requires more power than the in-house automatic 89801 calibre can provide. For this reason, every night when the date display is advanced, the quick-action switch taps a little energy and stores it until the end of the month. The date and month discs have semi-transparent perforated covers that provide a view of the complex mechanism within.




Rotonde De Cartier Astrocalendaire


This limited edition 45 mm watch ( 100 pieces) in platinum is powered by a Flying Tourbillon complication, and features a perpetually calendar laid out in a revolutionary three-dimentional  concentric circular display, with the functions being spread across the various levels. The day is indicated on the inner most circle, the month in the middle and the day on the outer circle. A hand located at the back indicates if it is a leap year. The single crown controls all the functions hour, minute, date and month.






Platinum GMT by Greubel Forsey


This 43.5 mm GMT watch in 950 platinum, incorporates a terrestrial globe at 8 o’clock that completes an anti-clockwise rotation in 24 hours like the earth, displaying all the global time zones in real time from the perspective of the North Pole where they converge. A lateral window set in the case offers a viewpoint over the Southern Hemisphere. The brand’s signature 24-second tourbillon is at 5 o’clock. The main time indication is at 1 o’clock, the small seconds at 2 o’clock, the power reserve indicator at 3 o’clock, and at 10 o’clock is the GMT display for the second time zone. The back of the watch displays universal time for 24 time zones through a rotating disc bearing names of 24 cities.




Panerai Radiomir 1940 Chronograph Platino – 45mm


This limited edition chronograph (50 pieces) in a 45 mm platinum case features two push-buttons that control the chronograph functions, a cylindrical winding crown, a bezel and an ivory dial with simple baton or dot hour markers, a tachymeter scale, and two chronograph counters.

Parmigiani Toric Résonance 3


This minute repeater in a 45 mm 18K white gold case with sounding hours, quarter-hours and minutes stands out for its oversized date. The exquisite dial features a hand-craftedguilloché decoration that serves to enhance the depth of the date and its eye-shaped window.





Richard Lange Perpetual Calendar ‘Terraluna’


With a 45.5-millimetre watch in a pink- or white-gold case and a regulator layout of scientific precision watches on its dial, this timepiece features an innovative orbital moon-phase display that depicts the constellation of the earth, moon, and sun, along with a perpetual calendar with the Lange outsize date and a power-reserve of 14 days. The large minute circle is at the top of the dial, and below it are the the smaller dials for the hours and seconds. Two small apertures show the day of the week on the left and the month on the right. The calendar is mechanically programmed to correctly display the different durations of the months in a year as well as those in leap years until 2100. The leap-year indication is located in a small round window on the right-hand side of the 15 of the minute circle. All displays of the calendar switch forward instantaneously.




Montblanc Star Twin Moonphase


This mechanical self-winding watch in a 42 mm steel case displays the moon’s phases in both the Northern and Southern hemispheres. The moon’s age is shown in days along the periphery of the sub-dial. The upper portion features a characteristically shaped window in which golden-coloured Luna glides above a dark blue background and gradually changes her appearance to keep pace with the phases of the moon as seen by observers in the Northern Hemisphere. The surface below it is adorned with a pattern shaped like Montblanc’s emblem with moon-phase symbols as they appear in the sky above the Southern Hemisphere.




Roger Dubuis Hommage Double Flying Tourbillon


The hand-wound movement of this limited edition watch (88 pieces) is in pink gold to match the 45 mm pink gold case. The applied Roman numerals appear in charcoal grey to match the shade of the genuine alligator leather strap. Both the dial as well as the back features the same sunray guilloché effect.




Vacheron Constantin Patrimony Contemporaine Ultra-Thin Calibre 1731


This watch combines the complexity of a striking mechanism with the thinnest manual-winding minute repeater in the market. While the movement is just 3.90 mm thin, the watch itself is just 8.09 mm thin in a 41 mm diameter, 18K pink gold case. But it packs a 65-hour power reserve and also features a silent flying strike governor, whose function is to steady the rate at which the hammer strikes the gongs.




Piaget Altiplano 38 mm 900P


For a brand known for its ability to reduce the thickness of its watches every year, this one goes a step further to celebrate Piaget’s 140th anniversary. At a slender 3.65 mm, it is not only the world’s thinnest hand-wound mechanical watch but it also stands out for its unique design where the case has been merged with the movement. It took three years to develop this watch and each of its 145 parts has been trimmed to a size sometimes barely thicker than a hair’s breadth – including some wheels measuring a mere 0.12 mm thin.




Baume & Mercier Clifton Retrograde Date Automatic


Housed in a generous 1950s look 43-mm steel case this watch is powered by a mechanical self-winding caliber visible through the transparent sapphire crystal case back. The sun satin-finished dial displays hours, minutes and seconds. The day can be seen in a small counter at 9 o’clock, the retrograde date at 3 o’clock and the power reserve at 6 o’clock.
