For deep-sea adventurers
A watch built to withstand conditions at extreme depths: the Oyster Perpetual Sea-Dweller 4000. Incomparably reliable and uncompromisingly water resistant.
Rolex earned the trust of the earliest pioneers of deep-sea diving. And the model that marks the return of the legendary Professional diving watch of 1967, like its predecessor, is equipped with a patented, pressure-regulating helium escape valve. The Sea-Dweller 4000 is waterproof to a depth of 1,220 metres (4,000 feet) and equipped with the latest in Rolex innovation: a Cerachrom bezel insert, Chromalight display with long-lasting luminescence, paramagnetic Parachrom hairspring with Breguet overcoil and Oysterlock folding safety clasp. Housed within the familiar shape of the 40-mm stainless steel case is calibre 3135, a chronometer-certified mechanical movement with a self-winding mechanism.
For nuclear scientists
Symbolic aesthetics and iridescent colors coalesce on an avant-garde timepiece: the Oyster Perpetual Milgauss.
The new version of the Milgauss fuses a green sapphire crystal with a dial of an intense electric blue. The bold colour provides the backdrop to the orange-coloured seconds hand with its distinctive lightning-bolt shape. The seconds hand is reminiscent of the first Milgauss model of 1956, which was developed as a paramagnetic wristwatch for engineers and scientists. The Rolex chronometer withstands magnetic fields of up to 1,000 gauss, with no detrimental effect on performance or accuracy. Small wonder, then, that the rugged stainless-steel watch is a favourite with nuclear scientists at CERN.
Consummate aesthetics and exquisite finishing: the Senator Chronograph Panorama Date from Glashütte Original.
Glashütte is synonymous with superbly designed chronographs. The Senator Chronograph with its impressive panorama date is another fascinating example of engineering design from Saxony. Ticking away inside the case is the new 37-01 caliber, a precision column-wheel chronograph with flyback function. Radiating a classic beauty, the timepiece is available in two stylish versions: in platinum featuring a hand-silver-plated dial together with a blue sapphire cabochon, or in a rose gold case encircling a lacquer dial studded with grains of silver. With its solid, compact construction and minimal susceptibility to breakdown, this fabulous chronograph is a reliable companion at all times.
Glashütte Original is available at Bucherer stores in Germany.
With style, charm and character
Small watch, big impression: Venturer Small Second from H. Moser & Cie.
The Vita by Heinrich Moser (1805-1874) provided the inspiration for a trilogy of outstanding watch collections. With (endeavor) and the spirit of an entrepreneur (venturer) the watchmaking pioneer took the Schaffhausen watch manufacturer to the pinnacle of haute horlogerie. After the Endeavour Collection, it is now time for the Venturer collection to celebrate a dazzling premiere: with the Venturer Small Second and its HMC 327 in-house caliber. The elegant timepiece, with its small seconds positioned at the lower edge of the dial, is available in three different versions, each in a rose gold case. Featuring a slate-colored, silver-plated or exquisite red gold fumé dial, each watch has an unmistakable character of its own.
Stainless steel reigns supreme
Announcing a major premiere from Patek Philippe: the Annual Calendar Chronograph 5690/1A with the flawless sheen of stainless steel.
A paradigm shift at Patek Philippe: stainless steel takes pride of place over rose gold and platinum. The Annual Calendar Chronograph with monocounter, which debuted in 2006, is now available exclusively in stainless steel. In this hard, rugged material, the new model has an unmistakably technical look paired with distinctive classic elegance and a sporty, masculine appeal. The complex movement housed in the pleasingly contoured case, together with the snug-fitting, fine-linked metal bracelet, testifies to Patek Philippe’s expertise in the manufacture of innovative, perfectly designed timepieces.
Patek Philippe is available at Bucherer stores in Germany, Austria and France.
Moving stylishly from one time zone to another has never been easier: meet the Link Calibre 7 GMT Automatic from TAG Heuer.
TAG Heuer skilfully combines practicality with style. The Link Caliber 7's most striking feature is a discreet second time zone in the 24-hour display at the center of the elegantly striated dial. Another eye-catcher is the refreshing design: pink gold-plated hands and indices against a dark background together with a newly designed bracelet in the unmistakable Link design. Rounding it all off is the impressive, unimpeded view of the high-precision automatic Calibre 7 movement ticking away under the sapphire glass back cover of the 42 mm case.
Black is back
Cool, edgy, and with the promise of adventure: TUDOR Heritage Black Bay.
When the TUDOR Heritage Black Bay was unveiled two years ago, it came in a combination of two warm colors. The latest version, in jet black, is radically different. Its designers have smartly combined vintage appeal with modern highlights. They took their cues first from the Submariner of 1954, which has since proved its mettle as a reliable instrument for use by marine forces, as well as a selection of other design features from the brand's 60-year history. The result: a rugged diver's watch with several sharp contrasts. Silver-colored luminescent hands dissect the dark dial with almost surgical precision. And the midnight-blue bezel adds a cool touch to the 41-mm stainless-steel case.
