For The Collector:
Bulgari Octo Finnissimo Chronograph GMT
A perfect blend of technical sophistication and esthetic refinement, the Octo Finissimo Chronograph GMT is the world’s slimmest self-winding watch featuring a chronograph and GMT function, earning a leading position among the ultra-competitive luxury sport watch universe. The exciting timepiece combines the well-known chronograph, the perfect tool for those living life in the fast lane, and a GMT function, showing two time zones at once, creatively reinventing a classic complication the Italian way.
This specific reference is all about one of the classiest colorways we've seen on a stainless steel luxury sports watch. The muted blue with matching bezel and gold accents is elegant yet incredibly sporty, as well. Depending on what you pair it with, the SPB217 is a true chameleon. The stainless steel case and bracelet, 100 meters of water resistance, Seiko's robust Dia-Shock system, Lumi-Brite hands and markers, and a sporty 24-hour external bezel add up to a GMT that's ready to travel across multiple time zones and tackle any adventure, either outdoors, in the boardroom, or the night club
The SAXONIA ANNUAL CALENDAR clearly and legibly unites a number of calendar functions. Apart from the time, the dial displays the date, the day of the week, the month and the moon phase. An elaborate mechanism automatically recognises which months have 30 and 31 days. The display must be updated only once a year, at the transition from the last day of February to the first day of March.
This exquisite watch is an example of excellent chronometry combined with the classic features of the brand. The rounded 40mm case of 12.2mm thickness is performed in stainless steel. The varnished silver-grainé dial has printed black Roman and Arabic Numerals, markers, and stylized blued hands for hour, minute, and seconds indicating. The timepiece features a stop-seconds mechanism. There is a big date window between the 4 and 5 o'clock. The moonphase aperture is placed between the 10 and 11 o'clock. The mechanical self-winding 36-04 movement has 43 jewels. It features 100-hour power reserve. The timepiece is fitted on a black alligator leather strap with a deployant buckle. It is 50m water resistant.
For The Tech Guy:
Winner of the Horological Revelation award at the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève in 2013, the Type 3 best represents Ressence’s fine-watchmaking philosophy – a balance of technological innovation, mechanical complexity and timeless design. The Type 3 represents an intellectual approach born of the key tenets of industrial design and aiming towards the deconstruction of the traditional watch. This approach is characterized by the elimination of both standard watch hands and crown – the entire case back is used to wind and set the mechanism – the minimization of the case (2mm thick) and the maximization of legibility thanks to oil-filled technology.
This Quartz GMT watch offers the high precision, durability and ease of use that are the very hallmarks of Grand Seiko. The muscular steel case has a ceramic bezel whose hardness protects it from scratches and ensures its lasting beauty. The yellow of the GMT hand is mirrored in the dial ring to make it easy to read the 24 hour hand at a glance and the GMT hand is illuminated by a Lumibrite that emits a different color than that of the hour and minute hands and indexes, ensuring high legibility even in the dark.
This inspired, robust and functional watch, consisting of three interchangeable Hegid elements, has the potential to evolve using Hegid's simple and fast EVOL patented system.
Hegid watches are expertly crafted from the finest materials. The design and assembly of the watches are made in France by partners selected for their watchmaking experience. For Hegid, every detail counts for a watch to last a lifetime.
As a part of all six moon landings in history, the legendary OMEGA Speedmaster is a true icon of space as well as OMEGA’s pioneering spirit.
In this 44.25 mm model, the Speedmaster’s lunar history is celebrated on the blackened movement, which has been laser-ablated to represent the moon’s surface. The near side can be seen through the blackened skeletonised dial, while the far side can be seen through the caseback.

For The Adventurer:
Oris Calibre 400 Series sets the new standard in automatic mechanical watchmaking. Conceived entirely in-house by the independent Swiss watch company’s skilled engineers, it offers elevated levels of antimagnetism and a five-day power reserve, and comes with a 10-year warranty and 10-year recommended service intervals.
The Chronoscope collection has taken the legendary Speedmaster design and combined it with inspiration from OMEGA’s chronograph wristwatches from the 1940s. This 43 mm model is crafted in stainless steel with a silvery dial with blackened subdials. Along with a black anodized aluminium bezel ring with its tachymeter scale, the leaf-shaped hands and Arabic numerals are also blackened, with a unique “spiral” track pattern running beneath the numbers.
Chopard has created the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique Power Control in titanium and gold. Inspired by the classic single-seaters from the 1970s, the snailed grey dial perfectly compliments the 18k rose gold bezel and crown while the stainless steel case back, stamped with the logo of the Monaco Automobile Club, adds a touch of contrast to the titanium case. A timepiece at once technical and streamlined, beating with a movement that is chronometer-certified by the COSC.
