A trophy for motor racing fans
Now for the first time in platinum: the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona.
Rolex presents a magnificent reinterpretation of its legendary Cosmograph Daytona in solid 950 platinum, the noblest of precious metals. Now, as when it was launched in 1963, the robust and very legible chronograph attracts admiring glances on and off the racetrack. Its most striking feature is a chestnut brown monobloc Cerachrom bezel with an engraved tachymetric scale offering a striking contrast to the ice blue dial. The Cosmograph Daytona is equipped with calibre 4130, a mechanical COSC-certified chronograph movement with column wheel and self-winding system.
A paragon of discretion, the Portofino from IWC with big date display marks Bucherer’s 125th jubilee. This elegant, unassuming beauty of a timepiece in rose gold is limited to 125 watches.
The Portofino Big Date from IWC in 18 K rose gold with glass back and hand-wound movement is classy without being over-conspicuous. Large, conical hands move gracefully across an elegant white dial that acts as a discreet backdrop to other elements, such as the seconds subdial and eight-day power reserve display. They provide needle-sharp clarity and a pleasing contrast to the flowing numerals in the large date display window.
The jubilee edition of the Portofino is limited to 125 watches and available exclusively from Bucherer.
The magic of Fellini
Chopard focuses firmly on femininity: “La Strada” is a poetic tribute to the immortality of Federico Fellini’s films.
Federico Fellini, the grand old master of Italian cinema, also inspired a collection that exudes voluptuous elegance. The “La Strada” watches reflect the magical interplay of light and shadow characteristic of his black-and-white films, 1950s glamour and the charm and grace of the disarmingly fragile Giulietta Masina. Other leading players include the eternal power of love and femininity. Generously proportioned curves and contours determine the design. The clean lines of the case reference the graphical symmetry of filmstrips and the diamond-like arrangement of the sampietrini, the typical beveled cobblestones found at the center of Rome.
Girard-Perregaux’s Constant Escapement revolutionizes the concept of timekeeping. It provides the movement with power at a constant level.
After five years of research and development, Girard-Perregaux has made the breakthrough to a new era in chronometry. The interposition of an additional element in the escapement facilitates the supply of energy at a constant level to the balance and counteracts fluctuations in amplitude. The balance takes the shape of a wafer-thin strip of silicon. It is the beating heart of the ultracomplex movement to which Girard-Perregaux dedicates its latest watch line: the Haute Horlogerie Constant Escapement Collection. An antireflective sapphire glass back provides an unimpeded view of the trailblazing movement design in its 48-millimeter white gold case. Available from Bucherer in Switzerland and France.
Piaget’s Limelight Gala replaces the linear nature of time with contours and femininity. Brilliant, pulsating and seductive.
A new icon from the House of Piaget and a tribute to the Swinging Sixties, when Piaget created breathtaking jewelry watches for the beautiful and elegant people. The Limelight Gala is a reinterpretation of glamorous voluptuousness, boasting an incomparable combination of sensuous contours and sparkling gemstones. The exquisite dial takes the form of two elongated brackets for the bracelet and is set with countless diamonds. The black Roman numerals and the sophisticated satin wristband underscore the classic inspiration for an unequivocally feminine timepiece. Available with a quartz movement and in several versions.
