Bold and powerful, it is an X-ray interpretation of the future of watchmaking design, where we see everything, including the very architecture and functioning of time. If you’ve got it, flaunt it.

They say that diamonds are a girl’s best friend and Patek Philippe’s latest ladies’ watch, the Twenty-4 Automatic has taken the saying to heart. It presents timeless elegance in a rose gold Haute Joaillerie model that celebrates the beauty of the iconic design. The dial, bezel, crown and bracelet are paved with diamonds presented in a ‘random’ or ‘snow’ setting.

Within this precious case beats a caliber 324 S self-winding movement, noted for its meticulous finishes, which can be admired through the sapphire crystal case back.

Introducing the Panerai Submersible Marina Militare Carbotech a real instrument for survival: a professional underwater watch with remarkable technical characteristics and a decidedly military look, dedicated to the historic partnership between the company and the Italian Navy.

It fully deserves the designation Survival Instrument which is engraved on the back. The 47mm case is made of carbotech, a material based on carbon fibre which was introduced into the world of high-quality watchmaking by Panerai. It is both lighter than titanium and stronger than stainless steel. The special composition of this material – consisting of extremely thin layers of carbon fibre bound together by a special polymer – gives every individual watch a unique, unrepeatable camouflage appearance, which is reflected in the design of the dial made of carbon, with the date window at 3 o’clock and the small seconds hand at 9 o’clock.

A brilliant advertising campaign states that “You never own a Patek Philippe, you merely look after it for the next generation.” Those words come to mind on viewing the latest Ref. 5905 which unites two of the maker’s complications that are highly prized amongst connoisseurs – a self-winding flyback chronograph and a patented Annual Calendar. The model now comes in a new version with a rose gold case and brown sunburst dial, gradually grading to black at the periphery ensuring the attraction will never fade.

The Thinker
The latest offering from Bovet is the Récital 26 Brainstorm Chapter One which comes with a stunning green quartz dial. The case is sapphire in a ‘writing slope’ and to accentuate its transparency, the power reserve is displayed via a printed cam that shows the energy available through a crescent-shaped indicator placed at 4 o’clock. The watch contains just 60 movements and, as is customary, Bovet will produce a limited number of timepieces equal only to the number of movements.
